Steve has to put stickers on his students' textbooks

*smacks forehead* I remember hearing about this. These are the kind of things I don't look forward to in teaching within public education.

HA! Well, technically that sticker is correct. All we have is a theory about a force we don't really understand.

This is true. You would not believe how many things the so-called "scientists" are now admitting are just theories. Germs, for example. Did you know it is just a theory that germs cause disease?

This is why I am lobbying the local school board to teach my alternative explanation: that diseases are caused by evil spirits. I know this because it is written in the Bible. If anyone does research about germs, I will use their research to prove that there is no agreement in the scientific community about whether germs actually cause disease. Therefore, my explanation should win by default.

When did Uriel start appearing in the combox? Freaky -- what is this place, Medjugorje?

Are you serious about the stickers, btw???

Fortunately, we do not live in a theocracy -- yet. Still working on that whole "church and state" thing. If I talk too much about my opinions about religion in schools, I'll veer into dangerous territory, so I'll just say this:

The sticker is a joke. However, it is virtually identical to a sticker that is actually in use in some schools in the States.

The real sticker is about evolution, not gravity.

Hmmm... Hate to say it, but aren't the churches the boneheads on this issue?

Wait, on second thought, perhaps evolution IS just a theory. And I'm thinking it's a flawed theory at that... After all, if only the strongest/smartest (etc) survive, shouldn't the idiots that come up with this crap have died a long time ago?

Nathan, Catholics do not discount evolution -- or any other sound science. The Vatican has been saying for years that this one is up to you. JP2 accepted evolution personally.

Then again, it was a Catholic monk who invented the scientific method.
