I think I need to confess to somebody that I really did go search out this site.

CatholicScience was created by Michael Baruzzini in 2010 to fill a need for Catholic homeschoolers.

The Catholic Faith has a rich intellectual tradition of philosophical and theological thought on science. We bring this Catholic approach to science into all of our courses.
I wonder if they teach in the Galileo tradition of astronomy? .... and I'll wager birth control gets a poor write up in Biology.

I like the flowery absurd words, "a rich tradition of philosophical and theological thought on science." Fuck all that shit, it doesn't belong in science... unless they start using evidence in their theology, they should stop trying to use bullshit in science.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

Thanks, Smelly. That was quite informative. It never occurred to me that science could be a sectarian discipline.

Then again, Christian Science has been around for a while now, but I always thought that was just theology, which has nothing at all to do with application of a universal scientific method.

The problem for these clowns is that true knowledge and the process of learning goes where the evidence leads - they cannot follow a static ancient book.

Well said. Too bad they may never realize it.

It really pisses me off that they are allowed to make decisions that affect the education of perfectly healthy minds. Not a good idea when they're as thick as pig shit themselves.

Chakras of the earth? What a load of new age bollocks. I said it the other day, how many dumb twats is it going to take to keep being wrong before people stop and think "hey wait a minute, maybe this isn't very likely". Unfortunately though I fear that as long as there are dumb cunts there will be delusional cunts to lead them.

People don't cultivate thinking. They are encouraged to be lazy and take the easy way out. Eventually, they just believe whatever's easiest or most persistent. Path of least resistance....

And a few devious ones have figured this out and become shepherds.

so, in a way it is occam's razor....

One of the most irrational of all the conventions of modern society is the one to the effect that religious opinions should be respected....That they should have this immunity is an outrage. There is nothing in religious ideas, as a class, to lift them above other ideas. On the contrary, they are always dubious and often quite silly.

It looks as if the 'let's get our buybull into science' crowd is on a roll.

Quote:
The governor of Tennessee has allowed the passage of the 'monkey bill', giving public-school teachers licence to teach alternatives to those mainstream scientific theories often attacked by religious and political conservatives.
No doubt a few lawyers will get fatter when this bollocks eventually finds its way to the courts.
