Quote# 74719

When I decided to homeschool my six year old son, I told him we were going to do "Dinosaur Week". Which turned into "Dinosaur Month". . . at the least! We watched "Walking With Dinosaurs" and a lot of other documentaries. He's a pretty smart kid, too, so even he ended up saying "Ok. Scientists say that God isn't real. They say earth is a kajillion years old. They say that people and dinosaurs weren't alive at the same time and that a lot of dinosaurs could have died from a big flood, but that The Flood didn't happen. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?!". He gets really upset about people not believing in God - as in he doesn't want them going to hell and he can't believe people can ignore God all around us. Every time we watch one of those dinosaur things, he gives a big, overly-dramatic sigh whenever they start talking about "millions of years" or evolution.

One that really cracked him up was where they theorize about reptiles evolving into humanoid creatures. Good grief! And they teach most of this stuff as FACT in schools!!!! I can't believe it. Neither can a six year old. So WHY is it so accepted?!!?

I teach him what makes SENSE. NOT what science textbooks say. I also teach my kids to question what they are taught - especially what they learn in school. It's really not fun at all having a bunch of junior scientists in the house when 99% of science seems to be atheistic.

You've trained him well.

"One that really cracked him up was where they theorize about reptiles evolving into humanoid creatures."

You just said this for bragging rights with the RRtards, didn't you? There's no such thing.

"he gives a big, overly-dramatic sigh whenever they start talking about "millions of years" or evolution."

And I'm sure you've never done anything similar...

Another young boy being trained as a burger flipper from the age of 6. Sad but oh so typical for American retards!

Congratulations! You're well on your way to raising a child just as ignorant and stupid as you.

But, that's OK. The world can always use more burger flippers.

Edit: I swear I didn't see Headache's comment before I posted mine. Oh well, great minds think alike, or something.

It's more that god/Zeus/Thor is not required by science.

And why the fixation on gods in science? Do you complain about the lack of god in homeopathy?

"He gets really upset about people not believing in God - as in he doesn't want them going to hell."

Yes. See how that works? Children are frightened into believing and made insane before they can develop the critical thinking skills that would let them come to the conclusion that you're full of shit. Congratulations. Another generation of intellectual retards for the megachurch to feed off of.

You have to get a license to drive a car. But everybody can get kids and teach them bullshit.

But hey, go on, HisPrincess! I heard the best burgers are made in the U.S. They need your kids to flip them.

So, you're saying that you're as intelligent as a 6-year-old? Gotcha!

"where they theorize about reptiles evolving into humanoid creatures"

Uhm, I think you got a bit confused between actual science and Doctor Who. You do know the Silurians are fiction, right?

I'll just say this:

I also teach my kids to question what they are taught - especially what they learn in school.

It's good that you teach your kids to question things. But you really dropped the ball when you most likely told them to just suck up every retarded thing you and your church tell them. I'm so glad my parents taught me to be critical of everything (occasionaly, to their own dismay, even themselves. Oh the fun I had as a kid, undermining their authority :) )

He gets really upset about people not believing in God -

Ok, he's a six year old boy that is parroting what mom and dad are saying. I wonder when he's sixteen if he will be parroting the same drivel.

"He's a pretty smart kid, too, so even he ended up saying "Ok. Scientists say that God isn't real."

No. They don't.

"They say earth is a kajillion years old."

Billions, actually. And they can provide evidence for that claim.

"They say that people and dinosaurs weren't alive at the same time and that a lot of dinosaurs could have died from a big flood, but that The Flood didn't happen."

Congratulations. You got it half right. I'm betting you wouldn't know which half though.

"He gets really upset about people not believing in God - as in he doesn't want them going to hell and he can't believe people can ignore God all around us."

I suggest you look a little harder if you're seeing god anywhere. Life isn't all sunshine and rainbows when you take a good long look at how it works for the majority of the species the majority of the time.

"Every time we watch one of those dinosaur things, he gives a big, overly-dramatic sigh whenever they start talking about "millions of years" or evolution."

Yes, because a snide little homeschooled twerp is far more informed than scientists who have spent more time learning about such things than he's been alive.

"One that really cracked him up was where they theorize about reptiles evolving into humanoid creatures. Good grief! And they teach most of this stuff as FACT in schools!!!! I can't believe it. Neither can a six year old. So WHY is it so accepted?!!?"

I don't believe it is. You seem to have confused David Ike's books for scientific literature.

"I teach him what makes SENSE. NOT what science textbooks say."

That'll help on those standardized tests he's supposed to be passing.

"I also teach my kids to question what they are taught - especially what they learn in school. It's really not fun at all having a bunch of junior scientists in the house when 99% of science seems to be atheistic."

Oh, good god.

Princess,

You are destroying your sons ability to be successful in the modern marktplace.

This is child abuse, plain and simple. I wish there was something I could do for that kid. If you would give me one week with that kid I could undo the six years of BS you have been feeding him. That is how weak your position is.

I want to WTF this more than once. I really do. I weep for humanity.

"One that really cracked him up was where they theorize about reptiles evolving into humanoid creatures."

So you've never seen a Republican?

Seriously though, science doesn't address the question of god because you yahoos can't even come up with a definition that makes any sense.

One that really cracked him up was where they mythologise about a giant man with a long white beard who lives on clouds. Good grief! And they teach most of this stuff as FACT in fundie schools!!!! I can't believe it. Neither can a six year old. So WHY is it so accepted?!!?

Fixed.

He's a pretty smart kid, too, so even he ended up saying "Ok. Scientists say that God isn't real.

Some do, some don't. Personally I'd PREFER if they all did but I know it's not true.

They say earth is a kajillion years old.

Wrong, it's 4.5 billion. And normally I'd just chalk it up to the kid being six years old, but in this case I suspect that you believe the same thing.

They say that people and dinosaurs weren't alive at the same time

I know you said you like watching documentaries with your kid, but The Flintstones is not a documentary.

lot of dinosaurs could have died from a big flood

Wait, what? It was a fucking meteor you ignorant twat!

but that The Flood didn't happen

The evidence suggests that it didn't.

He gets really upset about people not believing in God

And I'm sure you had absolutely nothing to do with that.

as in he doesn't want them going to hell

Great, now you're filling a six year old with images of violent torture. You are a horrible person.

he can't believe people can ignore God all around us

If he's all around us then where is he?

Every time we watch one of those dinosaur things, he gives a big, overly-dramatic sigh whenever they start talking about "millions of years" or evolution.

Yur lernin' 'im real good!

(cont'd)

One that really cracked him up was where they theorize about reptiles evolving into humanoid creatures

Three possibilities I see here: 1) You're fucking lying 2) You didn't understand the documentary 3) It wasn't a very good documentary. If it's option 2, what they were likely showing was the evolution of synapsids to mammals.

I teach him what makes SENSE

1) The Bible makes no sense.
2) Common sense is unreliable in learning about reality, the best example of this is quantum physics.

NOT what science textbooks say

You've already quite well established how anti-science you really are.

It's really not fun at all having a bunch of junior scientists in the house



You're lucky if they're junior janitors with the kind of "ejumaction" you're giving them.

7/27/2010 8:26:41 AM

TGRwulf

You're turning them into creation scientists, which doesn't even count as science.
Also, in the part about the flood, COULD is the key word there numskull.
Not to mention that your six year old only believes that evolution isn't real because YOU taught him. Shouldn't he question what you taught him too? Oh wait, that's right, fundies only question OPPOSING view points.

"One that really cracked him up was where they theorize about reptiles evolving into humanoid creatures."

Either HisPrincess is lying for Jesus in that post, or the documentaries they watched were made by evolution-deniers. Either way, I feel sorry for any child of hers.

I wonder what will happen when this allegedly smart kid figures out that Creationism is bunk.

7/27/2010 8:44:39 AM

Doubting Thomas

So it sounds like the brainwashing is going well. If you play your cards right, you will have another nutjob fundie on your hands sitting aroud finding signs of the end times everywhere while waiting to fly up into the sky, the whole time lamenting that he sees evil everywhere in the world. And when he eventually has kids he'll brainwash them to believe the same things.

99% of science seems to be atheistic.

I'd wager that it's 100%, since science only deal with the natural, and gods are supernatural. And contrary to fundie beliefs, scientists are not out trying to disprove God's existence. It's just that science inadvertently has disproven a lot of (if not all) religious beliefs.

7/27/2010 8:51:11 AM

Doctor Fishcake

Just another child of religious parents who is going to go completely off the rails when he gets into the real world and reality hits him like Troy Polamalu on a safety blitz...

Matante

When your kid is too old to stay at home and mimic what you say, how will you deal with the betrayal he'll feel over being raised to flatter your beliefs instead of preparing him for the world? Blame it all on godless rebellion? Because, Princess, what you do today is all you have to blame for how his respect for you will melt away when he's not so young and naive.

7/27/2010 9:07:09 AM

GodotIsWaiting4U

God isn't real. The earth is several billion years old. People and dinosaurs weren't alive at the same time. A lot of dinosaurs could have died in small floods, but The Flood didn't happen.

"I teach him what makes SENSE. NOT what science textbooks say." Well that's unfortunate, because what science textbooks say MAKES SENSE. But if you just mean you teach him what's intuitive instead of what's counter-intuitive (but true), then I bet he also believes that rain is God pissing through a sieve and the world is flat and other perfectly intuitive stuff.
