    Hey FTG!

    Good to see you again.

    In the section I quoted, you hit a hot-button topic for me.

    You don't agree with religion in education, but I suspect what you know about evolution probably came filtered through an anti-science perspective.

    A theory, in the scientific sense, is a coherent set of principles consistent with observations and/or experiment which make predictions. There is an amazing amount of observational evidence that evolution occured and is occuring today. Creationism is religion, not theory; if for no other reason than that it makes no predictions.

    PM me if you're interested, and I'll send you a list of links and books.

    I've been going to an extremely conservative religious school (kinda like a Jesuit school) since I was like five... and I can tell you out of personal experience, that it's really not that bad. So far they haven't really gotten into the subject of evolution, nor let their ideas about it get in the way of their education... they usually just keep away from it to avoid any trouble. As for teaching creationist theories.. well yeah, they probably teach you what the bible says about it or something but they're not gonna ask you to apply it in biology classes or anything, so if I were you I wouldn't worry too much about it. Maybe it's just my school, but maybe it's not...

    Well, I guess that's all...
    Bye!

    that's a conclusion. a theory is a conclusion that has been observed and/or experimented with by many other scientists in my places over a long period of time and has not been found to be wrong (sure, it can change a little but the actual thing is still valid)
    it's sad people call anything a theory when they shouldn't.

    The problem is that in common english usage, "theory" also means "guess". Many creationists really do know this, but deliberately abuse it to try to make their point.

    Final Words on this:

    As I have already stated: We are not doing the Creation Evolution thread here again. PM it. I realize this is not a 'scientific' debate, but challenges the merits of each viewpoint, close enough. NO More.

    Females= logic (in most cases)
    Male = obtuse (think we know it all.)
    FTG, I think you are a breath of fresh air personally. The woman I married, thinks just like ya, and I like it!! Independant, self sufficient (she jes' keeps me 'cause she thinks I'm cute) *good thing she's blind!*, and does her own taxes! And, as another lady recently found out, don't mess with the tigress! LOL!
