Horrible, horrible idea. I would love to see how they tie in god and nessie. Maybe nessie was gods steed of choice during his days of creation. Whole armies of angels riding lake monsters. Nessie is the devil?

Quote

Youngsters will be told that if it can be proved that dinosaurs walked the earth at the same time as man, then Darwinism is fatally flawed.

What of all the species of animals and bacteria that have been around since the dinosaurs? :blink:

Quote

Another claim taught is that a Japanese whaling boat once caught a dinosaur.


As cool as that would be...

The Zuiyo-maru carcass is a creature initially claimed to be a prehistoric plesiosaur that was caught by the Japanese fishing trawler Zuiyō Maru (瑞洋丸?) off the coast of New Zealand in 1977. Although several scientists insisted it was "not a fish, whale, or any other mammal",[1] analysis later indicated it was most likely the carcass of a basking shark by comparing the number of sets of amino acids in the muscle tissue.[2][3]

Which is why I am against vouchers. If you want to send your kid to one of those schools fine, but not with my dime. :td:

What I would like to know is this :-
How does a government allow these types of schools to brainwash children. These poor kids are going to grow up convinced that we walked with dinosaurs and that Nessie is real!
There should be a law against it.  I am all for freedom of speech but when it comes to teaching our kids, then they should be taught what is real and not what is pure and utter crap!

I agree, I think this is child abuse. They are purposely making these kids stupid to keep them indoctrinated in their beliefs.

Geology shows that fossils are of different ages. Paleontology shows a fossil sequence, the list of species represented changes through time. Taxonomy shows biological relationships among species. Evolution is the explanation that threads it all together. Creationism is the practice of squeezing one's eyes shut and wailing "Does not!" ~Author Unknown

The lengths these people will go to is pathetic.

It ain't just America and it ain't just those "crazy Christians".

I work in Personnel.  I read application forms from University Graduates who know not the difference between "there, their and they're"!!!!!

Keep lowering the bar in education and you reap what you sow.

It doen't bother me.  It disappoints.  University used to be for the gifted and the rich.  Nowadays it's for the rich and any other pampered brat that can talk.

Aw come on - there is a bright side.  The influx of tourism dollars in Scotland is gonna shoot through the roof in the next 5-20 years.  Spruce up them "Nessie" props and um, try to make them a little more life like and convincing, even with this boost from the fundamentalists not everyone is gonna stay "fooled" forever.

We have this thing called the Bill of Rights. If you want to teach your children BS as part of your religion you can.  It is called free speech and religion. It is the price we pay for a so called free society.

I'd rather we got money from elsewhere, to be honest.

"Schools" teaching children falsehoods should be illegal.  Everywhere. There's the home and "churches" for that kind of stuff.

Innit!
