Did you miss it? ...
Texas textbooks determine what children learn nationwide.
I believe that dinosaurs were on Noahs Ark somebodys got to stand up to these experts. (Don McElroy, former member of the Texas State Board of Education).
Watch The Revisionaries, on PBS tomorrow night, January 28th:
Why would anyone want to watch more leftwing propaganda?
Texas schoolchildren need to be educated in the just discovered truth that everything came from nothing.
There is no such thing as leftwing propaganda to the majority of Americans.
I think I’ve seen bits of this on PBS.
Left wingers manipulate the curricula behind the scenes for decades and that’s perfectly fine.
Conservatives attempt to push the pendulum back a tiny bit, and do so publicly, and suddenly it’s a scandal.
The Texas Legislature was grilling a book supplier the other day for writing that the members of the original Boston Tea Party were terrorist just like their modern counterparts.
I looked at a geography book one of my kids brought home before we moved them to private school, it was all about sociological issues and how much third world toilets contributed to the world, not much about country borders and such.
Only we the ignorant and unlawful believe such malarkey. I’m so ashamed.
It is not we who are ignorant of their silly evolution story. In fact we teach it so that our children will understand somewhat of what and how the evolutionist thinks.
The ignorance is on the evolutionist side, as they do not know what and how we creationists think, but rather endeavor, from their ignorance, to misrepresent and ridicule us with strawman, ad bacculum, ad hominem, and ad absurdem arguments.
“Freeper thread looks at left wing promotion of ignorance through PBS documetaries”......
Lee Harvey Oswald worked at the school book depository. Coinidence or conspiracy ? ;-)
I think textbooks should be based entirely in empirical fact as long as they don't go out of their way to be dick Dick Dawkins, who states after a fact, that Christians are too stupid to understand 1+1=2...
...that's just pure hateful bigotry and we should not teach our children that.
I think very few conscientious parents ever have regrets about taking their kids out of public schools these days. Good move on your part.
Sorry that’s “ coincidence “....
Was it or did you mean it;)
Professing Christians really need to evaluate what their believes are. Do they believe Gods word sometimes or all the time? Genesis 1 is true, Paul told us to demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ, we must stand firm and refute lies. Yes we will be mocked but truth is truth.
I guess this Liberal Media wankers would prefer Texas schools teach falsehoods like Global Warming, Anus is a Reproductive Organ, and UN is our Friend nonsense
While every school and university in the country teach marxism like it actually works.
What’s important to realize in the debate about who controls what kids learn is the fact that public education is a completely leftist idea. Only leftists seek to control the minds of others’ children. Conservatives (or you could say Freedom Lovers) have always understood that they’re uniquely qualified to teach their kids. Dewey and all those cats knew that socialism can only work when parents have less influence.
There so much evidence, writings, and personal experience out there that obliterate the notion that many conservatives hold on to. Leftist are very good at taking good institutions and turning them bad because that’s what defines them, it’s what they do and their purpose for being. Conservatives, by their definition, cannot and have not successfully take over Leftist institutions. The public schools, in every state, will continue to pump out low information welfare recipients or social justice activists. There will be a dwindling number of people who overcome their indoctrination.
Any push made by conservatives will only create a more affective push back by Leftist. They’ll win because it’s their institution: Designed by them, for them, and after their own image.
Loved your post so appropo and true. Cool FR est date too - 4/4/4 - is that meant to reflect Jesus?
Here’s a free online science text for any / all homeschooling christians out there - creationscience.com - written and illustrated for easy understanding but referenced with too many other scientific books and articles to even begin counting. I bought the 8th edition hardback for just over $30 too.
As the writer Peter Drucker expressed it in 1939, the complete collapse of the belief in the attainability of freedom and equality through Marxism has forced Russia to travel the same road toward a totalitarian society of unfreedom and in- equality which Germany has been following. Not that commu- nism and fascism are essentially the same. Fascism is the stage reached after communism has proved an illusion, and it has proved as much an illusion in Russia as in pre-Hitler Germany. - F. A. von Hayek, The Road to Serfdom (1945)
