    Maybe so, but his point is a valid one: it is not irrational to reject a scientific breakthrough that appears to me to lack a solid basis.

    No, that is what scientists do. Science teachers are teachers who are scientifically literate to some degree. Unless they are good college professors, they need not to mess in the world of science.

    Also, massive post I made on the previous page. Read it if you want.

    How is this "casting doubt"?

    There is no gravity. It's God's finger holding us down.

    The Earth is flat, the Sun rotates around it, and the stars are just divine track lighting.

    Jesus had a pet dinosaur. The Liberals left it out of the Gospel.

    The difference that comes into play is whether it actually lacks a solid base or people percieve that it lacks a solid base.
    I thought I was an atheist until I realized I'm a god.

    The thread is about science not mere belief so this is, at the very least, out of place.

    Re: You Have No Constitutional Right To Your Own Science

    For the record, I chose the first option, but it doesn't really reflect my answer to the question.

    My real answer is that you are free to teach your kids whatever you want, but schools should teach science. If you don't want your kids to be taught science, send them to a private school where they will be taught your religion. You don't have the right to teach your religion to my children in public school.

    The thread is about the tension between freedom of religion and reality AKA, science.
