We must save our children from foolish belief in the supernatural.

Education is the only tool that we have to drag ourselves and our children out of ignorance and superstition and that education should include that it is foolish to read myth literally. No more Dark Ages should be allowed.

Comparative Religion should be taught to insure that no child is lost to creationist intellectual dissonance. We must expose our children to Comparative Religion as soon as they can understand Evolution which would be taught alongside of it.

To do less would be shirking our duty to our children and their young minds. If you do not supports this type of all-inclusive education, please show why you oppose it?

Remember that when President Bush backed up stem cell research, it gave other countries a chance to advance away from the U.S. and hurt the U.S economy.

If the U.S. fails to educate itís children properly in Comparative Religion and Evolution --- and the various sciences that stem from it, --- the U.S. will shrink itís economy and power as compared to those countries who have a fuller and more intelligent education program.

Do you agree that it is the duty of the U.S. education system to maintain a first world standard of education in the teaching of Creationism, Comparative Religion and Evolution, --- and catch up to more intelligent countries?

No. But I'm not an American, so you will have to convince your fellow citizens, not the Scots

Religion as a whole, never mind creationism is increasingly irrelevant in Scotland.The US however has a multi million Dollar creation "museum" complete with dinosaurs fitted with saddles. If I was American I would be concerned about the lunatic fringe of evangelical Christianity and their efforts to force their ideology on American society.

I see any secular community as using education as a safeguard for their children.


The secular adult world is better educated in religion than the religious world and that indicates a secular interest in religious studies. If secular parents want to know and teach themselves religious studies, it follows that they would not mind starting their secular interest in religion earlier for their children. They would vote for a more intelligent level of religious education. It would improve on what is being taught to religious children today.

It is also the duty of the secular world to insure that it's future members are not as deluded by superstitious belief as their parents. The tipping point of belief is fast approaching and duty says that we should facilitate change.

Is a good knowledge base a good defence against superstition?
Yes it is.

You secularists show your desire for religious knowledge to protect yourselves so not insuring that your children have that same hedge against foolish supernatural beliefs is not intelligent parenting.

I am not an American but agree that they need educating more than more intelligent countries like Scotland.

What other issues and topics would you like your kids to learn in an ignorant non-school setting?
