The danger in teaching the Bible is that this book has the power to create faith even in an atheist. If it is allowed to be taught there is a strong possibility someone could be converted to Jesus Christ. Under the current world views is it possible to allow such a powerful tool for good to be taught in public schools and that before the young minds of the future?
That is right u take God out of anything or u dont include him in everything u are in danger anyway!!!!!!!!!!

It isn't the atheists and agnostics who kill by the names and desires of the gods.
The christian cult has murdered more people in the name of jesus than every war put together (including Hitler)

60 degrees and clear near St. Augustine. Cooler today than yesterday but still have the windows open. Wife is pretty confident the worst of the cold spells are done for the winter, so she had me planting some hibiscus, ferns and annuals today.

Former Top Judge Says US Risks Edging Near to Dictatorship

• Sandra Day O'Connor warns of rightwing attacks
• Lawyers 'must speak up' to protect judiciary

Sandra Day O'Connor, a Republican-appointed judge who retired last month after 24 years on the supreme court, has said the US is in danger of edging towards dictatorship if the party's rightwingers continue to attack the judiciary.

In a strongly worded speech at Georgetown University, reported by National Public Radio and the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin, Ms O'Connor took aim at Republican leaders whose repeated denunciations of the courts for alleged liberal bias could, she said, be contributing to a climate of violence against judges.

What persuaded you to believe in a Creator?

In 1990, I spent a few months in Dublin, Ireland, doing research at Trinity College. As I was traveling home with my wife, Barbara, we considered the future of our children. We also decided to visit my sister who was one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. My sister gave me a copy of the book Life—How Did It Get Here? By Evolution or by Creation? published by the Witnesses. The careful research that had gone into this work impressed me. It then dawned on me that I had accepted evolution without really questioning it. For example, I had assumed that evolution was well supported by the fossil record. But it is not. Indeed, the more I examined evolution, the more I became convinced that the theory is more bluster than fact.

Then I thought about my work with robots. Whose designs was I imitating? I could never design a robot capable of catching a ball as we can. A robot can be programmed to catch a ball, but only in precisely controlled conditions. It cannot do so in circumstances for which it has not been programmed. Our ability to learn is vastly superior to that of a machine—and mere machines have makers! This fact is just one of many that led me to conclude that we must have had a Designer.

Why did you become one of Jehovah’s Witnesses?

In part, it was because Barbara and I liked their thorough study methods. I was especially impressed with the research that goes into their publications. Solid research appeals to people like me, who want to probe into the details of things. For example, I became deeply interested in the many prophecies, or predictions, in the Bible. My study of those convinced me that the Bible really is from God. In 1992, Barbara and I were baptized as Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Hi Priest,
I see you are telling the truth, the religies judged it to be true as one religie said in an earlier post.
I thought you were against religion being taught.
Oh, I see. You're not against satanism. That religion is ok.
Your hypocrisy is showing.

Tipping point for California. New census data shows Hispanics will outnumber whites sometime in 2013.

Does that mean I have to press 2 for English from now on?

That is false information! First Jehovah's Witnesses do not debate! We know the end is near but the scriptures plainly says no one knows the day or the hour....only the Father knows!

If you are bound to post misleading information at least try to make it believable!

TIME OF THE END
An expression found six times in the book of Daniel. It refers to a time period marking the conclusion of a system of things and culminating in its destruction. The prophet Daniel was given a preview of events to occur in the distant future. Thereafter he was told:“And as for you, O Daniel, make secret the words and seal up the book, until the time of the end. Many will rove about, and the true knowledge will become abundant.”—Da 12:4.

The expression “time of the end” does not mean an ‘end of time’ but denotes a period of time that culminates in the end or destruction, not of all things, but of the things mentioned in the prophecy. That time itself will not end is made clear in the Scriptures. For example, the psalmist said concerning the earth:“It will not be made to totter to time indefinite, or forever.”(Ps 104:5)

Jehovah's Witnesses has made that so plain that some religions now have resorted to calling it not "the end of time" but "end times"
