Quote# 74989

Fundamentalist Christians are hijacking Religious Instruction (RI) classes in Queensland despite education experts saying Creationism and attempts to convert children to Christianity have no place in state schools.

Students have been told Noah collected dinosaur eggs to bring on the Ark, and Adam and Eve were not eaten by dinosaurs because they were under a protective spell.

Critics are calling for the RI program to be scrapped after claims emerged Christian lay people are feeding children misinformation.

About 80 per cent of children at state primary schools attend one half-hour instruction a week, open to any interested lay person to conduct.

...A parent of a Year 5 student on the Sunshine Coast said his daughter was ostracised to the library after arguing with her scripture teacher about DNA.

"The scripture teacher told the class that all people were descended from Adam and Eve," he said.

"My daughter rightly pointed out, as I had been teaching her about DNA and science, that 'wouldn't they all be inbred'?

"But the teacher replied that DNA wasn't invented then."

Good for the girl! Now she gets to spend that half hour studying in the library to better herself, while her classmates lose IQ points listening to some christ-stain babble on endlessly about utter horseshit. Lucky girl.

A 5 year old called them out on their bullshit.

Really, what more do you need to hear?

Pwned by a 5 yr old!

@ Fishcake and anevilmeme

It's year 5 (5th grade for you Americans), not a 5 year old...

So it's pwned by a 10 year old, which is still impressive.

As a side note, this made front page of the Sunday Mail last week (I think) and got a 2 page spread on the inside.

I read about the afterlife

Okay, the Noah story is already unlikely with just animals -- but now you mean to tell us that he attempted to bring dinosaurs as well?

After their devious invention of DNA, those ungodly scientists invented Quantum Mechanics which resulted in simultaneously alive and dead pussycats, mwahahahahaha!

"But the teacher replied that DNA wasn't invented then."

WTF?!

Do these people listen to themselves when they talk? I'm convinced that they just blurt out the first fucking moronic statement that comes to the edge of their lips.

That daughter already knows how her brain works. I like her style already.

Now matter how many times I read this article, it never ceases to be absolutely ridiculous and disturbing.

A "magic spell?" I thought Real, True Christians believed all magic was the work of the devil?

This isn't even theologically correct. When Adam and Eve were kicked out of the Garden of Eden, God basically said "fuck you guys, you're on your own now", so he wouldn't have bothered to protect them from dinosaurs or whatever.

"open to any interested lay person to conduct"

Oh that's a reeeeal comforting thought.

That ten year old already knows how to think better than that teacher!

WTF. LOL. The image in my head when I read that...

This girl is doing well for herself, and it sounds like her dad isn't too shabby either. Whew! Hope for the future!

"But the teacher replied that DNA wasn't invented then."

The stupidity of this line is staggering.

[nitpicking]Being ostracized is more of a mental thing, isn't it? You are made persona non grata, and people will not acknowledge you, right?
And, you are ostracized FROM something, not TO something. [/nitpicking]

Who did invent DNA, then? And how did they get it into our cells, and into the cells of already extinct animals?

Wait...Witchcraft for Jesus? Does not compute.

This is the biggest, most stinking pile of WTF ever unleashed on innocent children. I hope their parents put an immediate stop to it. I know I would.

"Students have been told Noah collected dinosaur eggs to bring on the Ark, and Adam and Eve were not eaten by dinosaurs because they were under a protective spell."

How fucking stupid do you have to be to believe that shit?

"Critics are calling for the RI program to be scrapped after claims emerged Christian lay people are feeding children misinformation."

Misinformation? Well, I suppose that's one way to put it.

"..A parent of a Year 5 student on the Sunshine Coast said his daughter was ostracised to the library after arguing with her scripture teacher about DNA."

Good for her!

The whole arguing part, not the other thing that is.

""The scripture teacher told the class that all people were descended from Adam and Eve," he said.

"My daughter rightly pointed out, as I had been teaching her about DNA and science, that 'wouldn't they all be inbred'?"


Again, good for her.

"But the teacher replied that DNA wasn't invented then."

And yet your daughter was the one sent to the library? Seems it was this "scripture teacher" who needed an extended stay among the bookshelves.

> "But the teacher replied that DNA wasn't invented then."

Here's a dictionary. Please look up "suspension of disbelief". It's a fairly important concept in fiction.

...said his daughter was ostracised to the library after arguing with her scripture teacher about DNA.

That right there is all you need to know about fundie thoughts on education. Places where you learn things are punishment.

" because they were under a protective spell."

WITCHCRAFT!

Damn it, KittyKaboom beat me to it.
