NOTHING is outside religion!
And its the teaching of 'so many cultures' that's the problem! Kids in public schools are so busy learning how not to offend a Sikh they don't learn, for instance, how to count, read, write and understand the Bible!

But if another country doesn't want to teach the bible and only focus on IT'S culture, then you'll be up in hypocritical arms about them not being taught Christianity.

What about math? Math is religious? How about science? Geography? Why would you need to learn to write the bible? Or count it? Did you bother to read your comment before you posted it?

I am unable to understand what you are trying to say. Your pathetic attempt at punctuation does not help and reveals that you were poorly educated. And what is wrong with teaching children not to deliberately offend people of other races and cultures?

2/26/2009 4:07:36 AM


Teaching of many cultures cuts back on hate, so STFU.

count, read, write and understand the Bible
They should learn to count the bible? It's easy to count. One! But to write the bible? I wouldn't let just ANYONE edit the bible, if I were you. It might become like conservapedia.

This is an interesting comment considering a majority of fundies are illiterate. A case in point: Byron Bayh Jr.

NOTHING is outside religion! Grrr, Byron ANGRY!

2/26/2009 4:27:35 AM


really, because I'm pretty sure if schools stopped teaching math i would have heard by now

2/26/2009 4:37:42 AM

Wouldn't you people be screaming about blasphemy if public school children were writing bibles?

2/26/2009 4:39:40 AM



Now you can. Everybody can edit the Bible on Wiki Bible.


2/26/2009 4:42:21 AM


Nothing but reality.

Byron, the fact that you're still breathing is offensive to all that is rational.

As to understanding the bible, there isn't one of you retards (fundies) that has a clue about understanding the bible. Try actually learning about other cultures, and perhaps your racist little understanding of the bible would alter. Then again, given most of the bible's content, maybe not.

a mind far far away

Holy shit, I wasn't aware that you could write or count the bible. That's a neat talent, unfortunately, it's useless in the real world.

The Watcher

Thank God for that! (See, I got religion!)

[NOTHING is outside religion! ]

Except science.

You say that "NOTHING is outside religion," huh?

Well, I believe in nothing. Therefore my faith is outside religion. Cool. Religion would just ruin my faith anyway.

Tolpuddle Martyr

Religion: 1. a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, esp. when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.
2. a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects: the Christian religion; the Buddhist religion.

1: the rational investigation of the truths and principles of being, knowledge, or conduct.
2: any of the three branches, namely natural philosophy, moral philosophy, and metaphysical philosophy, that are accepted as composing this study.

At best only vaguely related, it's hard to imagine rationally searching for the truth when you have an a priori belief based on faith that the cause was a supernatural agency.

1: a branch of knowledge or study dealing with a body of facts or truths systematically arranged and showing the operation of general laws: the mathematical sciences.
2: systematic knowledge of the physical or material world gained through observation and experimentation.

Not even vaguely related.

Just for fun lets try...

a person who explores caves, esp. as a hobby.

No, sorry. Try again.

"how to count, read, write and understand the Bible!"

How to write the Bible?

That's easy:
"And then something happened that justifies the oppression of females. And then someone said something that made people moral not for emotional but merely for authoritarian reasons. And then people were taught that fear is true, love is not important. And then the unconditionally loving God condemned those who didn't think 'I believe in Jesus!' to eternal suffering. And homosexuality is the highest evil. And then they went to some city and blablabla."

One hour. All it needs to learn that.

One week. That's at least what it takes to convince a person that people really believe in that fucking book.

Unless you're an atheist.

It's not the school's responsibility to make sure kids can 'understand the Bible'. That's the parents' job, should they so desire!

2/26/2009 5:25:54 AM


Unlike you a-holes, who hate "book larnin'" if books other than the Bibble are involved. You can't have it both ways!

2/26/2009 5:29:11 AM


You're right, kids should be held to higher standards regarding math, reading and writing.

However, you exaggerate the degree to which children are taught about other cultures. For instance, the only holy book I read in public school was the Bible (for Bible-as-literature time). I doubt most public school kids have even heard of Sikhism, to use your example.

2/26/2009 5:33:25 AM


no, they just learn how to count, read, and write. Your bible does not belong in school.

2/26/2009 5:37:37 AM


Maybe if you had learned about other cultures early on, you wouldn't be such a hateful prick now.

Learning about other cultures doesn't preclude learning how to count, read or write, it simply helps prevent one becoming a myopic, provincial moron.

Amanda -- They need to learn to write the Bible because the original authors did such a poor job.

[CHRISTUCKER]Man, there ain't NOBODY understands the words that are comin' outta your book![/CHRISTUCKER]

Most kids don't know what a Sikh is. You don't know what a Sikh is.
