That's the really funny part about this whole thread--how many actually must not have comprehended the word "Elective".
Got some of 'em so shook up to read the word bible they started having immediate melt downs...as if we live in a nation of commie cafeteria ladies, handing a bowl of peas to each and every student daily, hoovering over them with wooden spoons, "forcing" them to "eat their peas daily" and like it.
NOT in these United States of the 21st century. Not for those that live in REALITY anyway.
GOD Bless America, may we always have DEMOCRACY and educational institutions with some choices of "ELECTIVES" because dark age Communism sucks!
And to inform children about this "elective" and to promote this "elective" preachers and other church members will fo to all of the class rooms and tell all of the students that they will go to Hell if they do not worship god and of course in order to play sports or other "extra" things (like band) you must take this "elective"
This is a sneak attack to brain wash children
Why can't you be happy to push your cult in your own church?
Hey, how about an "elective" to teach Witchcraft?

You know why I picked the silly nickname "ChromiuMan?" Because unlike the utter void of superstition, chrome is reflective.

Mutation does this mean that the Ninja Turtles could be real. Lol are using google for this crap. Every post you write a book.
I haven't looked on here since December and nothing has changed someone post and you have to comment like you hold the evolution knowledge of the world lol.
Let me set aside my beliefs and faith for a moment and say that your full of it.
If you would spend as much time reading the bible as you do writing this crap you might would learn something new. Instead of how old something is on earth when you don't know where it came from to begin with.
I have actually read the bible, not every verse but neither have you or most people... most tend to read verses and skip around and pick / choose what parts they want to read... I have also read some of the Torah, Quran, Vadic Writings, Greek mythology, Sumerian transcriptions and Inca carvings... But you go ahead and base your life and knowledge on the writings in one book written by Men with agendas a couple 1000 years ago and limit yourself to always being Un-knowledgeable of what the human species has learned over the millennia ... That mind set burned the scrolls in Alexandria and cause Bruno to be burned at the stake, It put human kind into a Dark Age that took us 500 years to come out of and we have Yet to relearn all the knowledge we lost because of people like you that stuck to being read too out of one book, because during that time most of Europe lost the ability to read and write... While people with your mind set were burning people at the stake in other parts of the world they were building cities and studying the stars...

Got any evidence of your claim on that entity yet? Of course you do not have any. Kind of hard to find evidence of a non existent being.

If you look through the post, a couple of years ago (under the name hippiefreakcomputergeek) I argued the christian side of this. But the more that I read the bible the more convinced I became that it was bullshite. The deathstroke was a preacher that gave a sermon I had heard from three other preachers of a personal account how "god" helped them financially called "you can not afford to not give"
A personal account that was word for word by four separate preachers. Can you say LIE and CON? I can

For all you grown ups,you are wasting your time trying to help these little kids understand God. Look at their names,Satanic Priest,Skeptical Spectacles, ChromiuMan-they are too young to comprehend anything but evolution. Evolution is wishful thinking. Like some super magic formula.
Though they claim that this "energy " is so great and has evolved itself into every living breathing creation,created the heavens and earth,they still have not found it.
Only fools think that something not able to speak,think or breath can accomplish more than they can.
I actually feel sorry for these 3 kids (probably learned all this rubbish from their parents .
But it is a truth ,mankind either believes in some God ,or something that CREATED all things.Evolution is just the most absurd!
At least God (Jesus Christ ) was here on earth,done great miracles ,and even raised from death. I prefer the Bible ,so God is my choice!
Most people do not learn of evolution through their parents. You must be thinking of creationism.

You call those who believe in evolution "young", but have you even thought about all the ages of scientists who believe in evolution?

BTW, we have found evolution and have evidence of it. Do you have any evidence of that god you claim is doing this? Do you have evidence of the miracles, or rising from the dead? Now those claims sound absurd.

You can chose the bible if you wish, but do not make our government force it upon us.

Energy... E=Mc2... Where did the Energy Come From should be your next question... It Always Existed .. Time Started the instant some matter converted out of Energy... I call it Unified Indefinable Energy Form... Time is a Human Concept and only exists relative to the matter in relative motion to other matter... Time in out universe goes only in one direction, Forward.. We can go forward in time but we can never go back... We can though "See" back in time we can just never Go back in time... But we can Go forward in time we can just never "See" forward in time.... One of my long time debates with other in the field is that I think that the speed of light in variable and is set Universally by the total separation distance of all matter in the universe and altered locally by the separation distance of matter in local dense areas... so the Rate that Time moves forward varies by the density of the local matter... The More Dense the slower the value of c and the slower time moves forward... We being so small on a astronomical scale can never detect such variance even locally in our solar system... So we perceive c and time as Constant

Oops- right,evolution says that the giraffe needed a longer neck to eat the vegetation on trees ,so it grew a longer neck. That makes sense.
Why don't you 3 boys ,go to a pig farm,and wait until that poor old pig wallowing in mud, eating corn husks, suddenly decides it does not want to be a dirty old pig after all. You wait long enough and that pig will say, "I want to be a man". And you will see that pig change, and there before you will be a man in a fancy suit and bow tie.He will then say, "Take me to the newspaper,"I am your proof that evolution is a scientific fact!" It could happen.
I know people think I am silly because I have a large field with no cattle on it,but I am not wasting money on buying cows,it is full of earth worms,I KNOW that one day they will evolve into cows hundreds of cows ! I will be the richest man in Carter county. Sure there are unbelievers and skeptics,but I'll get the last laugh. I am so glad that skilled scholars like you are on my side. Keep posting maybe these morons will finally grasp the reality of evolution.

Ah, the threats of hell. Kind of hard to scare someone who thinks your god is not even real. Are you scared of Thor?
So if your god visible and just where is he? If not in the sky, why do Christians point up when refering to him? If you wish us not to say he lives up there, maybe stop pointing up there.
If you wish us to stop saying he is invisible, show us what his physical presence looks like?

What'd'ya think? Other dimensions, universes? Think we'll ever find the exponent to complete a theory for everything? Think earthworms will ever have intellect enough to admit and say the words "we, the earthworms...do NOT know.."? Wouldn't that be something, talking earthworm....lol.

The thing is, it's not clear how a type Ia actually forms. There are two models, both involving white dwarfs. These are the ultradense remnants of dead stars, the exposed cores of stars after they shed their outer layers. The Sun will one day be a white dwarf (in about 6 - 7 billion years, so don't hold your breath). Because of complicated quantum physics, it turns out that white dwarfs can only have so much mass; if they exceed about 1.4 times the mass of the Sun they can collapse, either forming an even denser neutron star, or exploding as a supernova.
