[Regarding teaching of evolution in schools]

Umm, what do they not get about a "theory" ?

That's what get's me It's still the "theory of evolution" but somehow, gee - wonder how that happened - Satan has made it in to "fact" in our public school system. Shameful, and sinful

Follow the man who says he is searching for the truth. Fear the man who is certain he has found it

And this is why the meaning of science should be taught even earlier, to forestall this fuckwitted idiocy.

I guess we shouldn't teach the theory of gravity, the atomic theory, or the theory of relativity either.

Please go look up what a scientific theory is.

Please go look up what a scientific theory is. Some evolutionists don't even know. It doesn't mean an unproven or unsupported law.

Oh, they KNOW what a theory means when applied to science. They just want to change that meaning by repeating the lie.

To them, something that's absolutely proven is the TRUTH, then they apply it only to their fables

Fact = evidence. Theory = explanation.

No. No. No.
How hard is it to get that the way "theory" is used in vernacular speech is different than in a scientific context? The way we use the word "theory" in day to day speech is more like a "hypothesis" than the scientific use of the word "theory".

First you need to understand what the word 'theory' actually means.

Since you obviously don't maybe you should just die in a fire.

Quite aside from the blatant distortion of what a scientific theory is, does he think everything taught in schools is an absolute fact? Even in, say, literature or art classes? Economics? Politics?

...he does, doesn't he.

*sigh*

Quantum mechanics is a theory.
Predicted the transistor it did.
All just so 1angel4u can expose its breathtaking stupidity for all the world to laugh at.
