You are even funnier! Read the WHOLE story. It's not about FORCING anyone to learn the Bible, it's about allowing The Bible as an ELECTIVE Course in High School.
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!

I snipped repetitive drivel... No One does Not need chromosomes from the female and from the Male to create a new organism... Humans Do because we Evolved to reproduce that way over Billions of years, that variation of reproduction evolved before Humans were walking on 4 legs... Long before Humans moved onto land from the sea... But the Statement "So,one needs the chromosones from both,men and women,in order to create a new organism.That is a fact." That is Not Fact in All Organisms... Many Organisms retained the ability to reproduce without Male or Females.... Humans (actually all Vertebrates) Evolved billions of years ago to reproduce using genetic material from another of it's species... Some laid eggs, some gave live births .. Then along the way Mammals evolved to give live birth and maintain gender specific genetics... Some of our ancestor vertebrates retained the ability to be male or female dependent on populations and environment...
So to Make it Simple because I have No Doubt you didn't understand what I wrote ... The Statement "So,one needs the chromosomes from both,men and women,in order to create a new organism.That is a fact." Is Not True for all Organisms...

Theory, But, If, and Millions of years ago is all I hear, Never concrete evidence of anything.
Dinosaurs turning into Robins but you question someone's faith, I guess you think Global Warming and Aliens are real to. Lol Seems to me you drunk the Kool Aid and want others to have a drink.
Miracles and unexplained really happen everyday. Faith Required..
All you hear is bits of stories told on the discovery channel before you switch the channel because you think is blasphemy.... We actually have these things called colleges and universities where you can actually go and learn the details, go into the field and dig the evidence, learn how the dozens of dating methods work, learn anatomy, compare skeletal structure and layout.... Yes a line of Donos evolved to be Robins... the Raptor line and if you look at a early embryo of a chick in the shell you will find it has a tail that stops forming before hatching and finger bones that grow to become wings... If you turn on one gene a chicken grows teeth.. All of which has been studied, tested and verified.. Evidence has been found all around the globe... Just because you choose to remain uneducated on the evidence is Your problem not mine, All I can do is explain it to you I cannot understand it for you......

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!
"Grown up?" Unlike wishful thinking in an invisible man speaking the universe into existence, there is nothing magical, mystical or supernatural about the Theory of Evolution. You still believe in "As I lay me down to sleep" and closet monsters and that a 1600 year old book was divinely inspired by the ultimate metaphysical being, then speculate on MY upbringing and education?
You know why I picked the silly nickname "ChromiuMan?" Because unlike the utter void of superstition, chrome is reflective.
Grow up.

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"

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
