Science v. Creationism and the Quote of the Day:
"The 'crux' of the disagreement [is] whether what a parent teaches their children at home should be mocked and derided and undone at the public school level. It goes to the fundamental core of who is ultimately, primarily responsible for the upbringing of children. Is it your public education system or is it your parents?
And for me, personally, I don’t want a school system that teaches kids that what they’re learning at home is wrong.”
Marco Rubio, Creationist and Republican Candidate for the
Senate Seat. Florida
Remember it is not wrong if it feels good. If teaching creationism in the home feels good, what right to schools have teaching contradictory science. After all, Science is just a collection of theories (heavy emphasis on THEORY) and laws just as is the Bible.
What is to say that the teachings of one should be promoted over the teachings of the other? It is all really relative after all. Science and technology, biology, the cure for polio, immunology and other ologies may be good for some to believe in. Good for those people.
But why should other people, non-believers, be subjugated to the teachings of all these ologies? Surely society can respect the worldview of those who deny science. One should be able to opt out, and pursue the lifestyle that feels good to them. If learning about science does not feel good to some, why only do this? Why not also do something else at same time that feels much better, like teaching creationism!
Now these folks have their champion, and that fellow is Marco Rubio, a Republican creationist from
