Option #4: Everything came to be in its present state through natural processes without the intervention of any mythology.

To be fair, there is something rather glaringly wrong with their statement of atheistic evolution... ism. To be unfair, that they teach this nonsense to children enrages me to the point of spontaneous combustion.

4. None of the above.

Please name at least one atheist who ever claimed that matter "comes from nothing."

You can't because no atheist makes that claim; it's only a strawman advanced by ignorant and lying fundies.

The disturbing thing is it reads like every parody of a creationist textbook that I have ever seen.

Child abuse plain and simple, destroying the minds of young children by meme poisoning.

Meanwhile, the real world laughs at this.

Wow. The ignorance is staggering.
They actualy have to make up imaginary schools of thought to avoid dealing with reality.

Option number 4 of course, is that matter formed by natural physical proceses that have nothing to do with evolution.

So scientists are working for what reason then?
"well, ya know, all this research I'm doing, it means nothing, but it keeps me off the streets I suppose....."

Way to poison the wells (debate terminology)....and young minds. Horrible. Chilling.

First question: Where do I begin? First, "atheistic evolutionism" isn't an actual thing. Second, nowhere in the theory of evolution does it say that something came from nothing. The theory of evolution deals only with how life changes over time not how it got here.

The second and third questions aren't even questions they're just asking me to copy stuff from the bible. That's not learning.

Your last statement could be used against you. You know you're wrong but you refuse to admit it and would rather jam your beliefs into the heads of impressionable children with baloney stuffed text-books.

"Atheistic Evolution," as this defines it, isn't a thing atheists came up with. Fundies pull it out of their asses. Atheists simply don't say "goddidit" as an explanation as to why the universe and lifeforms exist.

The only option that makes sense is one that doesn't involve supernatural mumbojumbo. But that hardly means "everything came from nothing."

Child abuse like anevilmeme said.

This is just pure evil, most things on FSTDT make me laugh. This just makes me angry.

"So through the appropriate deductive reasoning, logical thinking and scientific inquiry, we can conclude that..."

"But, but, but, my god and holy book said your ebil!!!"

I, for one, hold that the entirety of existance was sneezed out.

1/5/2013 8:37:53 AM


Most honest scientists laugh at the term evolutionism.

In which chapter and verse in the Bible is God saying "Although scientists know they are wrong, they refuse to admit it!"? I didn't even know that "scientist" was a concept two thousand years ago.

There are two kinds of people who home "school" their kids: Those who are concerned that their kids won't learn enough and those who are terrified that their kids will learn too much. And this is exactly why home "schooling" should only be allowed if the parents can provide for accredited tutors or are competent teachers in their own right. Children who are taught this crap really don't have much of a chance.

Oh my gosh, look at this, and look at the quotes around it. It has the same style as all of the crazy, brainless fundies. Blatant disregard of reality, scornful italics, even somehow knowing what God is saying and thinking.

1/5/2013 9:00:21 AM


Yes, instead of actually teaching children the truth about things you disagree with why not just use a dishonest strawman. That'll be great for their developing minds! </hypersarcasm>

Doubting Thomas

Because saying that matter was created from nothing is ridiculous and unscientific unless you say that God created the universe from nothing.

Nice brainwashing mixed in with the "lesson."

1/5/2013 9:36:09 AM


All that wasted ink....


1/5/2013 9:39:00 AM


I weep for the poor child whose parent uses this to "educate" them.
