From Josh Rosenau at New Scientist:
School field trips to creationist Ark? Sink that idea right now
Just as pernicious as the scientific errors and the religious proselytising is a subtler form of indoctrination. The relentless message to visitors is that our world is as fallen and wicked as Noah’s, and that the destruction of the flood – including the obliteration of all humans other than a virtuous few – was not just acceptable but praiseworthy.
Under the pretence of illustrating a beloved tale shared by Jews, Christians, Muslims and others, Ark Encounter presents a message as socially divisive as it is scientifically inaccurate, instilling fear, hatred and hopelessness. Those are lessons no school or parent should want their students or children to take on board. More.
Fear? Hatred? Hopelessness?
Aw, give it a rest, Josh (an American Darwin in the schools lobbyist).
Why do Brits care so much what happens here in North America anyway?
Does the word Rotherham mean anything to any of you Brits? No. Thought not.
Tax-supported education faces many problems in the United States, but most of them stem from the fact that teachers are usually recruited from the dumb squad in any faculty. Many countries recruit from higher drawers.
I think the world is very wicked, even if Noah’s Ark is a legend. I am also glad to live in a country (Canada) where publically funded Catholic schools can start the day with the Hail Mary if they ruddy want to.
Less government. More citizen.
Fix your own problems, Brits, and don’t bug us. And don’t listen to the Darwin in the schools lobby and their expensive trial lawyers.
Note: When I was a kid, schools used to go to US attractions all the time. In those days, Canadians could cross the US border just by stating the name of the town in which we were born. If the town existed … Decades earlier, my father, then a cowboy, would often cross the border on horseback, looking for stray cattle. He would not know what side of the border he was on until he stopped for coffee and asked.
Stuff lost, stuff gained. I don’t know. Different world. Still don’t need New Scientist getting a shovel in the hole.
Get lost, twerps. I would rather deal with school trips to a park dedicated to the Abominable Snowman than with you.
PS: When my dad was a cowboy, it had nothing to do with six-guns and violence. It was supplying the world with beef.
Cattle drive vacation.
