    i am fine with you believing that and fine with that being taught in school..
    just as evolution being taught as a theory.

    since they are both theories they are both valid topics for an essay on say origins..

    It has the exact same amount of evidence for its existence as your god does.

    Why not? It has as much legitimacy as many other “religions”

    We are who we are because we have evolved that way. Everything we do and everything we feel evolved over time.

    I don't hate god, because there is no god.

    Of course it does. There exists exactly the same amount of evidence for the existence of a Flying Spaghetti Monster, as for the existence of your god.

    All religions and gods are made up in an effort to explain what humans didn’t understand at the time about the world around them.

    psalm 14.

    1The fool a says in his heart,“There is no God.”
    They are corrupt, their deeds are vile;
    there is no one who does good.

    2The Lord looks down from heaven on all mankind
    to see if there are any who understand,
    any who seek God.

    3All have turned away, all have become corrupt;
    there is no one who does good,not even one.

    4Do all these evildoers know nothing?
    They devour my people as though eating bread;
    they never call on the Lord.

    5But there they are, overwhelmed with dread,
    for God is present in the company of the righteous.

    6You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor,
    but the Lord is their refuge.

    7Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
    When the Lord restores his people,
    let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!



    thinking for yourself just perpetuates evil and stupidity. gotta be open minded enough to let go of believing what you believe based on how you feel and how you want things to be.

    Fact is God is God ,we're not and we suck at just about everything, especially thinking for ourselves

    So? How about all the other religions I quoted earlier? Seems that many believe this law is fine so long as it only applies to one religion only

    In one area the fact is no one actually knows if a creator exists or not as a fact.

    No more than if an intelligent species exist outside of earth.

    Yet if your science book teaches something the purpose of an education is to be able to puke it up when asked. That is secular education.

    There wasnt much questioning in my public school education. The questioning for me was found in university. Public school in the 50s and early 60s was for learning and puking back the basics that included Civics and ethics so as to turn out responsible citizens. Yet we were taught how to think as well as what to think on some issues. Like democracy and capitalism is good while dictatorship and communism is bad. And they were right.

    Our system here in my area isnt concerned with turning out responsible citizens nor do we teach them Civics that used to be mandatory. I think it was dropped once the Feds involved themselves in education!
