Politicians, school boards, principals, and teachers are pushing creationism on kids

Posted by doctore0 on June 9, 2015

creationismjobsWhen a student in Louisiana opens her textbook in biology class, she might not have the standard Miller and Levine Biology with a dragonfly on the cover, and she might not ever learn about evolution. For some Louisiana public school students, their science textbook is the Bible, and in biology class they read the Book of Genesis to learn the “creation point of view.”

Through a public records request, I obtained dozens of emails from the Bossier Parish school district that specifically discuss teaching creationism. Shawna Creamer, a science teacher at Airline High School, sent an email to the principal, Jason Rowland, informing him of which class periods she would use to teach creationism. “We will read in Genesis and them [sic] some supplemental material debunking various aspects of evolution from which the students will present,” Creamer wrote.

In another email exchange with Rowland, a parent had complained that a different teacher, Cindy Tolliver, actually taught that evolution was a “fact.” This parent complained that Tolliver was “pushing her twisted religious beliefs onto the class.” Principal Rowland responded, “I can assure you this will not happen again.”

Gawd traps nuns in elevator, makes them drink urine

Posted by doctore0 on June 9, 2015

It’s a miracle….

Irish nun drank own urine to survive after being trapped in an elevator

The 58-year-old was stuck in the lift for two days, along with a nun from New Zealand, before they were both rescued

Two nuns, who became trapped in an elevator in Italy for two days, were forced to drink their own urine in order to survive.

The 58-year-old and 68-year-old were stuck for two days and three nights in Rome on one of the hottest weekends of the year.

Italian newspaper, La Repubblica, today quoted a paramedic saying “In order not to lose consciousness, they drank their own urine.”

The sisters got into the malfunctioning lift at a nun’s residence on Rome’s Via Aurelia known as Casa Suore Mariste on Friday. The Irish nun along with a New Zealand-born nun were eventually rescued on Monday morning.

After becoming trapped the pair began calling for help. However, they had no mobile phone between them and the building they were in was empty up until a cleaner came in on Monday morning.

Malaysian official blames deadly quake on naked tourists

Posted by doctore0 on June 8, 2015

Crazy huh

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – A government official blamed the recent deadly earthquake in Malaysia on a group of 10 foreigners who “showed disrespect to the sacred” Mount Kinabalu by posing naked at the peak last week.

Sabah Deputy Chief Minister Joseph Pairin Kitingan said a special ritual would be conducted later to “appease the mountain spirit.”

The foreigners, who included two Canadians, two Dutch and a German national, broke away from their entourage and stripped naked before taking photos at the mountain peak on May 30, officials have said.

Five of the tourists are believed to still be in Malaysia and will be barred from leaving on the offense of gross indecency, according to police.

Nicolas Doire, spokesman for Canada’s Department of Foreign Affairs, said consular officials in Malaysia have contacted local authorities and are assisting the two Canadians who are among those barred from leaving Malaysia.

Foreign Affairs could not confirm the identity of the Canadians, citing privacy concerns, but Malaysia’s foreign affairs ministry identified them to The Canadian Press as siblings Lindsey Petersen and Danielle Petersen.

Teens are fleeing religion like never before: Massive new study exposes religion’s decline

Posted by doctore0 on May 29, 2015


Religion is rapidly losing the youngest generation of Americans, according to new research.

America’s rising generation of adults are the least religiously observant of any generation in six decades, determined an expansive study led by Jean Twenge, a psychology professor at San Diego State.

“Unlike previous studies, ours is able to show that millennials’ lower religious involvement is due to cultural change, not to millennials being young and unsettled,” Twenge says in a San Diego State University news release. .

In one of the largest studies ever conducted on Americans’ religious involvement, researchers from Case Western Reserve University and the University of Georgia collaborated with Twenge and her colleagues in California to analyze data from four national surveys of U.S. adolescents between the ages of 13 and 18. The surveys were taken between 1966 and 2014, and include responses from some 11.2 million people.

The researchers’ findings were published this month in PLOS One.

According to Twenge and her cohorts, today’s adolescents view religion as less important, report less “approval” of religious organizations, and spend less time on prayer than did their similarly-aged predecessors. Some 75 percent of American 12th graders, the paper finds, believe that religion is “not important at all” in their lives.
