<quoted text>Science is a study of the natural material things on Earth and throughout the universe. It is only possible to accept the Bible if you do not deny the power of the God of the Bible. All power in heaven and in earth is in God's hands, and all things are possible with him. The real evidence will verify his existence. I would not teach any speculation in science class as being fact like I think some people are doing with Darwinism.
Would you allow teaching that light is a form of electromagnetic radiation? How about that fusion happens in the cores of stars? How about that the half-life of U238 is about 5 billion years? How about that there are atoms? Or subatomic particles?

The inferences that species change over geological time is as established as the fact that fusion happens inside stars. That isn't speculation. It is deduction from the known laws of physics and from observation.

The problem is that the *facts* show your bronze-age myths are wrong.

You guys keep whining and crying and taking God the flag, morals and anything good that you don't what to abide by and doesn't fit your life style choice out of the schools and the kids will just keep piling up on the floor. K? Then you can blame it on guns.

After his reply that he could not believe we thought that, Male and female were 'created" thousands to hundreds of thousands years apart. I concluded you may as well be trying to correspond with goldfish or a parakeet. He hasn't the ability to solve the riddles of life.

Now, I believe all of us through the establishment of the Constitution and laws of this country, have said the government can't put a religion in the front door, back door or side window of the schools. If that were to change which religion should get top billing? I haven't seen anyone on here advocating the removal of the flag of United States from anywhere. Do you really want government to be teaching morals through the public school system. To some extent they do by process of monitoring behavior and promoting citizenship, but again, who would mandate which set of morals get taught under a broad base of teaching them in school? Where would that leave churches? You sound more like you are preaching against a political stance than for or against religion or science. Do you think science is a liberal political agenda? And conversely that religion is a conservative political agenda?

I can't speak for anyone else, but I don't want any particular religious group trying to subvert the Constitution and the rights of everyone and insist on dictating policy on science education because the science makes them uncomfortable and may disagree with their beliefs.

The people that keep piling this up behave like children, but they are adults.

A spoon certainly can make you fat! If you use it as exercise equipment. Lol.

Let me add to this;

Don't ever blame it on guns. I have never seen a spoon make anyone fat.

A spoon by itself or even having many spoons will actually make a person lose weight. It all changes when that "person" chooses poorly what to do with/how to use with that spoon.

A gun by itself or even having many guns will actually make a person safer. It all changes when that "person" chooses what to do with/how to use that gun.

It isn't even chocolate cake and pizza that makes anyone fat. Though they are fattening. And delicious. I like cake.

Yes I do think science has a political agenda. Where do you think they get most of their funding? Government is in the schools, they fund them.

A gun will not make you safer. It will allow you to protect yourself. Possession of a gun or large numbers of guns can make you less safe. Think of all those that have been killed with their own gun. The point is that large amounts of cash might make you less safe, but can also protect you depending how you use it. But to say that guns make you safer by the mere possession of them can be extended equally to something like dynamite or ebola cultures and be equally wrong.

I do think morals should be taught in schools. Morals are not religion. Being taught to not lie cheat or steal are a moral code not a religious one

Teaching the kids wrong from right will keep us all safer.

Scientists might, but scientists don't. Actually more and more, funding is coming from private sources.
