Quote# 59533

its because the education system is much more a brainwashing system.
your taught facts, figures and maths. your taught that science is your god and there's nothing else to it. the more indoctrinated people are within that culture, the less able they are to consider other possibilities.

for me, your education level lets me know how much of a fool your likely to be. the greater it is, the less able you are to think by yourself, you will be less able to think outside of the box, think creatively, overcome problems with indirect solutions, etc.

Sadly, I agree with him/her that a higher education can be an impediment to thinking outside the box, thinking creatively and the ability to overcome problems with indirect solutions. However, I still think your better off with an education than without.

"the less able you are to think by yourself"

Instead of, say, asking an imaginary deity for help?

Meh. Judging people simply by their educational level is stupid. A person's educational level doesn't say what their education was in, how wierd they were as schoolkids (and thus how much less curiosity was beaten out of them than other kids), etc. I will agree to a limited extent that the public school system needs help (best to start from the ground up), but I disagree that post-secondary education has the same effect. I also have to point out that science is not proclaimed as god, or that it's an alternative to gods. Hell, you only have to take 3 years in high school and you barely learn any in elementary school in central Florida.

Also, coming up with an indirect solution is not necessarily a positive quality. . . that can lead to bureaucracy and excessive paperwork. It can take longer to carry out and make everyone frustrated at the tedious intermediate steps.

Yeah, what do we need all this edumacation stuff? There's only one answer to everything: Goddidit! We don't need to teach kids anything else. We don't need to look for any other explanation. It's like when the Plague killed a third of the human population of Europe. Goddidit! Screw all those college edumicated, Volvo-driving, latte-sipping liberals and their streptomycin crap. That just cured the Plague because God let it. [/sarcasm]

People growing up on desert islands and never having human contact, don't turn into geniuses, scientific or philosophic, because they have no preconceptions about science or human behaviour. You have an insecure and arrogant attitude. If you think that people are taught that science is god at school or college, it means you never attended either (or were TOO STUPID to understand what you were taught).

For me, your eagerness to call your brother a fool tells me that you can't be a christian, so how is this fundy? Jealous of hardworking smart people, sure, but no extremism as such.

I'll bet you dollars to donut-holes that the specific kind of science education (s)he's opposed to is the teaching of biological evolution.

HM. One of the first things that is discussed (at least in a liberal arts setting) is critical analysis and critical thinking. There are no 'wrong' answers per se, what you are marked and examined on is your ability to back up your propositions with evidence and relevant theory.

Unless of course, this differs to the USA, which could rightly be the case.

Whenever I read something this dismally stupid and pathetically written I cannot believe it is not deliberate. That it is a poe.

But I had read so much of it on fstdt that a lot of it must be honest to goodness xtian brain addled crap.

Apparently "your" not taught basic English and grammar skills.

So I take it seercirca avoids churches whose leaders have degrees in Theology? Opting for the crazy guy on the street corner?

And what about medical help? Personally I like a doctor that believes in continual education.

its because the education system is much more a brainwashing system.

And your religion isn't? The education system is lacking in some areas and always has room for improvement, but it is in no way comparable to "brainwashing".

your taught facts, figures and maths

Wow, I could almost believe that you had attended a real school for a minute there.

your taught that science is your god and there's nothing else to it.

Please name one, just one public school that teaches that position, I shouldn't be that hard, after all you are claiming that this a system wide phenomena. Typical Lying for Jesus(TM).

the more indoctrinated people are within that culture, the less able they are to consider other possibilities.


Really now? So why is it that public schools are not turning out legions of atheists then? And since when has educated and well informed been a "culture"?

for me, your education level lets me know how much of a fool your likely to be

So education makes people idiots now? I have a feeling that your level of education makes "fool" a goal that's quite out of your reach.

the greater it is, the less able you are to think by yourself,

What do you thinks makes you qualified to judge whether or not someone can think for themselves? All I see is another anti-education, anti-intelligence fudie who content parroting the same drivel that we have come to expect from your lot. It's a damn shame that you let your paper pope do your thinking for you, after all when you put garbage in you get garbage out.

you will be less able to think outside of the box, think creatively, overcome problems with indirect solutions, etc.

While in some fields of study that can be true, but it is hardly the rule. Your making a blanket judgement based solely on your own prejudice, not on your informed insight into a large group of people you have never met.

Yes, facts are such a hindrance.

I bet you also pound nails in with your fist, right?

It's better to be educated than ignorant. For an example why, see the above post by seercirca.

the lower your education level, the less likely your able to capitalize anything, or differentiate between "your" and "you're."

Since when does religion - and christianity in particular - allow you to think for yourself?
Those that DID think for themselves in the past were burned at the stake, hung-drawn and quartered, branded as witches.....
The bible is nothing more than a collection of badly translated babylonian fairy tales compiled by a bunch of bronze age goat sodomisers.
