i dont get it, this is such an asshole thing to say every time i see it on my dash i cant believe people would advertise that they agree with this cuz its just silly and rude but w/e i think its kind of been proven enough times that this website isnt so accepting and nice to everyone as they like to believe
How is this post “silly and rude?”
It’s true. Mankind will not survive if kids are raised believing that all these facts (yes, facts, science isn’t some made up thing) are made up/fake/don’t mean anything. If kids don’t believe in the things that are actually proven to be true and instead believe in a bunch of made up shit that they’re taught never to question, we’re fucked.
It’s certainly not silly to bring that up.
And the people who perceive it as rude are the people who are doing this shit (or were raised that way and are terrified to question it), and it’s unacceptable.
The moment people stop trying to tell other people how to raise their children is when this problem goes away. I know plenty of strong christian men and women who graduated from some of the best schools in the country with degrees in science and engineering. People need to stop being so close minded and understand that having faith doesn’t mean you’re an ignorant, biased moron and that being extremely smart and understanding how this universe works doesn’t mean you can believe in something other than humanity.
How about we focus on teaching our kids to think for themselves, not pick a side between science or whatever god you believe in. Both of my parents are christians and go to church every sunday, and mom even works there. The rest of the week my dad is a biology and chemistry teacher at one of the local high schools. Never once have they forced their beliefs on me, they simply educated me to learn and reason for myself, and because of that I can feel comfortable talking about religion as well as theories involving evolution or any other scientific theory. It’s called understanding. The opposite of ignorance.
