I personally think the teacher did no wrong, she just spoke her mind and as far as I know you can still do that in this great country! Or can you? yall thought it was okay for all you same sex lovin wierdos to go to chick filet and make out.so whats the big deal of her speaking her mind? she didnt go to a gay joint and make a big scene.
Obviously she crossed a line somewhere at sometime; or she wouldn't be in trouble
.
Crossing the line was a common occurrence in the civil rights movement in the 1960s; so lets take a look:

So, I took your advice and here is what I found..
A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on a body of knowledge that has been repeatedly confirmed through observation and experiment.
Observation is either an activity of a living being, such as a human, consisting of receiving knowledge of the outside world through the senses, or the recording of data using scientific instruments.
An experiment is a methodical procedure carried out with the goal of verifying, falsifying, or establishing the validity of a hypothesis
So, from what I understand, evolution takes many thousands to millions of years. If so, how can it be observed? How can accurate data be determined? Do they have a step by step breakdown of how humans evolved from primordial ooze? No, they do not. They claim that humans and apes evolved from a common ancestor, can they demonstrate where and why by natural selection humans and apes deviated in their evolutionary paths? OK, enough on that.
How can they carry out a methodical procedure to verify, falsify, or establish validity something that takes a minimum of thousands of generations? Has science been able to show simple single cell organisms with a rapid generational cycle evolve into multi-cellular organism by controlling and changing their environment? Not to my knowledge.
So, with all of that, how can evolution be considered a scientific theory? Please explain that to me.
I am also curious, if you deny the existence of GOD, why would have satan in your name?
Are you choosing to ignore the part that clearly states "based on a body of knowledge that has been repeatedly confirmed"

You earlier confused a scientific Theory to be a scientific Hypothesis, which BTW 99% of Americans do this. If you want the answers to evolution you have to look into Genetics and protein evolution long before you could ever grasp the chimp human question. The problem with those who really don't know anything about microbiology and real evolutionary research is they jump straight to human and chimp and overlook the fact that 95% of the support for evolution is based in the microscopic/genetics realm. Then you have to learn that science is a process that is only now beginning to uncover the history of life. Simply because we may not have a poster child organism for the Node of ancestory doesn't mean that the puzzle pieces around it show that it is well supported. The fossil record is like looking at a 1000 page novel that is missing 950 pages... Learn about fossils and you will quickly realize that the likely hood of you or for that matter any organism ever becoming a fossil and then being found by humans is about .5% Creationist like to paint this picture that everything that dies becomes a clear fossil and we find it just by going out to a dig for a couple of days. You most likely even think that there are five kingdoms of life (Plant, Animal, Fungi..etc).. Wrong genetics has forced us to dump the Linean Kingdoms and now classification is in a fluid state of cladistics and I only say fluid because we have just scratched the surface to comparative genomics... Are cosest current relative is Slime Mold and not chimps... but don't insult the slime mold they have as long of an evolutionary history as you

You probaly think that Satanism is the worship of the devil!!!! Wrong... Its a spiritual belief in freedom of oneself not bound by ignorant beliefs that limit self expression and freedom of choice... There is no Devil nor a god and Darwin died for your understanding.

Now let me ask you a simple question.. Thru the fossil record we do know that Humans as Homo sapians have been roaming around for about 250,000 years and hominids for at least 2.2 milion years. But I will just stick to the sapians. Jesus and christianity for about 2000 years... Don't you find it curious that God was so involved and carrying for what only 2000 of 250,000 years. In other words where was he the first 248,000 years....

Oh ya.... not invented yet

Please don't tell me your like 99.99% of american christains who despite the scientific evidence, observation, and just plain common sense loudly screams that christianity and for that matter all god based religions on earth are a man created thing that just simply isn't true. Are you the 99.99% that will bury your ostrich head in the sand, run to the comfort of your mythology and simply deny facts because to accept them would be admitting that your entire lifes beliefs have been a lie sold to you by the largest cooporations on earth (The Church).

Hi, Thumper.

"John" is pretty poetry and has some historic value, but it is pseudepigraphic gentile work that opens with plagiarism and, as such, is not a valid source for doctrine.

Very pretty though. Beautiful in spots.

You believe your "Magic" of evolution and I'll believe my Bible.
How nice for you. You DO realize that EVERY bible story is based on earlier pagan myths, don't you? It is a rehash of myth and folk tales, told over and over for eons.

Like the example of Jesus' birth. Almost ALL scholars, including serious religious ones, agree Jesus was NOT born in December, but more likely September. The whole Dec. 25th birth comes from Roman beliefs of Mithras. Since the winter solstice is Dec. 21, they realized that the days were getting longer again by Dec. 25, thus they thought Mithras was defeating the darkness, "killing the bull". So, they adopted the Persian myth in Rome and then that date was adopted for Jesus. The whole bible is like this.

But, if it floats your boat, have some fun with it.

Aww, ain't that nice?

You DO realize, that biblical scholars agree the whole resurrection thingy is based on PAGAN myths, don't you? The pagans worshiped Esthres, or Aphrodite, or anyone of many gods of spring. They were happy it was getting warm again and the trees were blooming, crops growing, animals were having pups, etc. The early Christians wanted to bring the pagans on board. So, they used that time period to lull them into believing their new found faith.

Aphrodite and the others were the gods of lust and procreation and sex. WHY do you think the bunny rabbit is the symbol of spring and Easter? They love to F*CK and have baby bunnies.

So, when you sing "Jesus LOVES you", you are NOT that far off, are you?

Cupcake, "well meaning" folk such as yourselves have tried that for generations now and each time failed horribly leaving only carnage in your wake. There have always been and will always be gay folk, it's part of natures plan sweetie and there is nothing that impotent assh*les like yourself can do about it. If you want to believe that homosexuality is some form of cancer, that is your problem, not ours. You can either learn to cope, or find yourself a nice empty closet to inhabit, right now, you're only in the way of what is right.

Mr. Hitler, Your plan did not work the last time. It will not work this time. I don't think you will be able to make people have a pink triangle attached to their clothing this time around. People like you scare me to death. Your thought scare people. Your feelings destroy people.

Who's scoffing? I LIKE it that the holy bible is based on pagan rites, on sexual ones at that. Gives more meaning to the dry tome.

There's no evidence whatsoever that Jesus Of Nazareth ever had sexual realtions with anyone. From what we now about Him, that is probably the Truth.

And "Magdalene" simply means "a person from the town of Magdala". The term "Mary Magdalene" is not some sort of title, but rather just a means of differentiating in writing "Mary" the mother of Christ, from "Mary" not the mother of Christ, who was from the town of Magdala.

And there is also no evidince whatsoever that Mary Magdalene was ever a prostitute at any time. This was an invention of the Roman Catholic Church.
