Try teaching students (including adults) before you advocate indoctrinating them.

VERY Interesting Analogy I saw online that completely applies to the topic at hand:

"Elephants are power animals, able to lift logs with their trunks and knock trees over using their heads.

You might think it is strange then to find that elephants are usually kept tethered by their handlers with a length of rope or small chain that they could easily break.

This IS because they have been conditioned. This is accomplished by trainers through the use of a heavy metal chain to tether the elephants while they are still young. The elephants learn during their development that they cannot break the bonds and they associate them with their limits, boundaries, and freedoms. Later, when they are fully grown and are of adult size and strength, they still believe they cannot break that bond and so they never really try.

From then on, only a rope is necessary to keep them from breaking their bonds, freeing themselves, and realizing their true strength. You do realize I am not really talking about elephants at all don't you?"

There is no better analogy to explain why: 1. religion doesn't need to be pushed on children. 2. religion has no place in schools. and 3. fundamentalists are so angry - they covet the freedom and happiness of the untethered.

<quoted text>I say...
Since God is a Spirit, and lives in that Alternate Universe the scientists try to prove exists... We don't know much about that realm, but do get to know Him while your here, cause we all will be there at our last breath, as a friend, or an enemy of God!
If yer of a mind to, at that time... Do ask Him!
u really are gonna make up a whole separate universe just to give your god any kind of credibility at all. first off show some proof of this other universe or u are doin nothing more than making stuff up, but then again all religions are made up with no proof so i can understand how u think this argument of yours is valid but in the real world it is just a way to get out of answering the question at hand. the only way u can even try to show the existance is to make up things that cant even be tested by science. so lets go from start to end...god has gone from being right up in the clouds and as we build things that prove there is nothing there we keep on movin him farther and farther out away from earth until we are now at a point u have made him a whole separate universe. i have to laugh at this ignorance cuz god punished ppl for buidin a tower to heaven so they could see heaven but yet we have sent rovers out to other planets where no tower could ever be built to but guess what, no heaven to be found. do u see just how retarded the whole thing is by simple logic yet or are u to far indoctrinated to see reality?
Yes and Amen

Seriously? In a time when government can and has allowed Fraud, Theft and transfer of 1000's of fire arms into the hands of drug cartels, at a period of History where corruption rules the day in many segments of local, state and national venues you ask "How can officials knowingly allow fraud and yet not be held accountable to a court of law if proof exists as you say?" I guess my posts over time about science and the concept of what Constitutes Proof versus Evidence must have slipped by you.... Here I do it one more time... Now Pay Attention...;)...
The term Proof/Proven is Subjective... One person or Group of people can see 2000 individual pieces of evidence and conclude a claim is Not Proven... One person or a Group of people can see 1 Piece , 1 shred of Evidence and conclude that what is claimed is Proven...
I see through a scientific eye and when I see 120% of registered voters vote for a candidate, or 52 districts voting 100% for a candidate.... I tend to view that as Evidence of Fraud... When I see a candidate win by say 400 votes and later I see documentation that there were 500 Convicted Felons who voted for that candidate I consider that Evidence of Fraud... When I add that Evidence with NGO's that have had over 20 individuals convicted of voter fraud, and then that NGO banned from receiving funding due to fraud allegations.... That bolsters my view that the Evidence of other Frauds are Valid....
Now when I see Federal Law Enforcement member getting transferred to better jobs and none of them being held to account after allowing the transfer of 1000's of firearms into the hands of drug cartels then some of those firearms killing 1000's of Mexican nationals and at least 4 US agents and citizens I tend to loose some faith in those Federal Law Enforcement Agencies ability to investigate Politically Motivated Fraud... When I have seen several of those FLEA's not arrest an Individual when he was in the open and wait until he was home with a 100 other people there before ordering the compound to be stormed and it ending in over 80 dead men, women and children I tend to not give them the benefit of the doubt in all cases....
I could go on and on, give links to many, many examples where the Government, under Both Parties, have side step even attempting to investigate much less prosecute it's own people misdeeds but spending a bit of time on other informational resources than MSNBC, though I would never tell you not to watch their versions of truths, you may find that over a long History Our Government has allowed Fraud to go unchecked....
Great post!
I believe our Govenment should strive to be Above Board at ALL Times!

Now... that's delusional! LOL

I have the distinct impression that if your fanciful life after death scenario plays out, Jesus is going to say "I sent you a thousand people with the truth, but would you listen? NOoooo! You had to glom onto that pulp fiction Constantine published."

honestly the only difference between christians and muslims is that muslims follow the rules of God and Christians say screw God himself, we will take our chances that his "son" can get us in even tho we didnt do what he commanded us to do. even jesus said the law wouldnt change but the church changed it real quick in jesus' name.
