Is it wrong to leave religion out of our science classes, or goddamn common sense?
I have been having a conversation on here with a blogger that would like religion and science to be given equal respect in school, or at least more of a free choice to decide on different beliefs. Two problems with this that I find are:
- Think of the numbers- How can we realistically teach over four thousand religions to students, ensuring no bias is given and each gets an equal amount of time to be taught?
- Are the religions worthy of such respect?- Would you be happy telling kids that they begin to crumble in old age because they deserve it as sinner? Would that make you a responsible and inspirational adult?
This is why I do not want religion to be taught in science classrooms, I’m more than happy to hear arguments against this.
