    True, but to me, private school isn't mass schooling.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I guess I don't know what mass schooling is. Public schooling?

    Precisely, where the "receiver" of education is a captive audience.

    Couldn't agree more.

    there is no science in the bible so why on Earth would anybody consider teaching it in science class?

    I think evolution should be taught in schools, but the subject of humans evolving from primates does not need to be covered. If a student asks about human evolution, the teacher can say "there are many theories... look them up on your own time or go ask your parents".

    Public schools should not be expected to teach someone's child that their parent's beliefs about where we came from are wrong. Nor should the schools be expected to promote a religious belief. The parents should either talk to their kids about this if they feel it's necessary or the student should look up this subject on their own.
    "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." —John Adams

    BCR, it's not about teaching the Bible in science class, it's about not leaving God out of the equation when God is necessary for origins and evolution to take place. Think about it. Alot of calculus is based on equations using the concept of infinity. But infinity is not an actual number you will ever see on a number line or count to, and it is nothing that anyone will ever experience. What would Calculus textbooks look like if you removed any mention of infinity? Same with origins, biology, geology, etc. If you erase God out of the equation, you won't come to the right answer.
    Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.

    God isn't necessary for evolution to take place..There is an abundant amount of substantial evidence that evolution has taken place while there is absolutely no evidence supporting a God.

    You should study evolution. It would save you from asking questions like that this are so obviously ridiculous. Where the first life came from is not part of the topic of evolution, it is it's own theory.
