If California can teach children to sell Obamacare in public school, why wouldn't you want the bible taught, just for balance?

Bullchit.

Definition of HUBRIS
: exaggerated pride or self-confidence

Example-the HUBRIS of wiki-STUPIDITY

"On Tuesday, Russia also said that Snowden had applied for asylum in 15 countries, not 21 as had been claimed by anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks a day earlier. There was no immediate explanation for this discrepancy."

AS in: When Lack of CREDIBILITY say anything type bullchit-- due to LACK of personal accountability due to LACK of correct facts (sans spin or opinion), it then becomes a PROBLEM (* three.)

As in BUH-Obble-headed; birdbrain parrot squawk and repeat anything, BUH`-ULL-Chit.

Oh yes,The magical and faity tale content of evolution is the norm in the minds of those who inhabit the Twilight zone.
Millions of years ago,in a land far away"A genetic accident experienced by an invertebrate sea animal, led to extra copies of brain genes being made. These extra genes benefited the sea animal's descendants, leading to behaviorally sophisticated vertebrates, including humans,
If you ever wondered about the origin of intelligence in humans and other mammals, that's the answer from a team of researchers led by Professor Seth Grant of the University of Edinburgh.

Interesting possible theory isn't it-especially in some fossil species (of the pre-Cambrian tethys era) are known to produce gametes and brood planulae.

Personal opinion-such is best studied by those in sober states, with sound, drug free minds however.

And what about a brother and sister that were separated and did not grow up together? How would they know not to be attracted to each other?
There's actually some scientific research on that too, which involves sweaty t-shirt comparisons of several different specimens.
Those related, were observed to be repelled from each other.

Of course it is growing. It is easier and you get to please yourself however you feel and believe there will be no consequence. Sounds like party time while the parents are away. Whoo hoo
All is great until you hear the car pull up outside.

Anyone would think after a certain age, an actual clue on that kind of stuff would sink in.

Especially after 35 or so!!

Not actually, in a "two seperate entities" sense anyway.

Instinct may also guide us in this manner: Previous research has revealed that human females preferred the musk of sweaty T-shirts worn by men with suitably different MHC genes.

Oh, I forgot... The parents of the usa haven't wanted moral values to be a part of their childrens up bringing for many years now... how sad...
On the bright side, not all parents are like that-some of us really do still value stuff like morality, ethics, integrity, credibility, you know traits that are cultivated by a more civilized society, rather than just the random herd pack animalisTic mentality.

Then we shouldn't call it "fact" and we shouldn't teach it as "fact". It is theory and should be taught as such.
There is a difference between fact and theory. Evolution is a fact, the Theory of Evolution is a theory that explains the fact of evolution.

It is a fact that things fall to the ground when dropped. It is a fact that light takes about 8 minutes to get to Earth from the Sun. It is a fact that there is a tiny time delay between satellites and GPS devices. Newtonian physics is a theory that explains a lot of that, and Relativity is an even better theory that explains much more of it.

One day we might get a theory of evolution that is better than what we have today, just like we did with physics. But until that day comes we teach what we know.

What is the alternative? Teach kids nothing at all? Teach them that god did it? Fill their heads with all manner of contradictory, unsupported ideas and then expect them to know how to parse the good from the bad?

I have a FACT for anyone who believes in the THEORY that human kind developed from sludge or monkeys. Evolutionism is a Religion that shouldn't be pushed, or even mentioned, to the children attending public schools. Period. If you are going to talk seperation of government and religion/schools and religion, then come on! Let's not forget all those other religions in this world. If a Christian is forced not to pray or speak, a muslim should be forced not to bow or wear a head covering, and teachers should be forced not to teach the religion known as evolutionism.

If you are reading this, please take a moment... If you have a bible, read it. If you don't, go buy or borrow one: King James, New American Standerd, or Giddion. Sometimes a church will give them out for free. IT IS NOT A FAIRY TALE!!! Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Everything that happened in the Old and New Testament DID happen. I am not asking that teachers at public schools push Christianity on kids; I'm asking parents at home push Christianity on kids! It is the parents responsibility to FIGHT the spiritual battle for their children. And parents should leave a path they would want their children to follow...

You can obtain a copy of "The New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures" from Jehovah's Witnesses. It is an accurate translation.
