    well..like I said, there is more to it than the little excerpt I posted..
    I cant post the entire book in this thread!
    if you still disagree after reading the book, then fine..
    but you cant really discard the theory if you havent heard the WHOLE theory..

    sorry..I guess I probably shouldnt have tried to explain it, because im not able to explain it fully without posting 3 or 4 entire chapters..it would be far better to simply say "read the book"!

    Guess what, there is no way to teach history or science or social studies, without teaching it from a certain worldview. In this country, public schools teach from a worldview that bows to science and political correctness.

    so you'd rather it bow to something that offends millions of people and has absolutely NO basis in real life? something you can't see, test, etc? What religion would that be anyway? what makes you think YOU can dominate over the rest of the country? and what sect of that religion would that be?
    If you do want that... then go to private schools. Don't mess with public schools.

    I'm only saying that you can't be complaining about being bombarded with Christian ideas, when we have to spend the first 18 years of our life being bombarded with atheism.

    Maybe Christianity offends people, but these are the same people who are all for tolerance.

    And as for basis in real life, God has more basis in real life than anything or anyone else I know.

    The notion that there might not be a supreme being never even occurred to me until high school maybe... and it wasn't inspired by anything I learned there.

    Maybe this is that christian-atheist polarity I mentioned surfacing again... if they aren't teaching christianity it must be concluded that they're teaching atheism?

    Should we conclude that church is anti-education because they don't spend their time teaching math, science, etc? Wouldn't that be absurd?

    How quickly would the average Christian start demanding separation of church and state if teachers started subtly inserting Hindu beliefs into all their lessons? "One nation, under Brahma" maybe?

    If that was the case, it was probably because you never though about it. Wether you thought about it conciously or not, what you learned, you learned from an atheist viewpoint.

    That would be absurd. I'm not sure what point you're trying to make with that.

    I don't know about the average Christian, but I certainly am all for separation of church and state.
