Science is taught as science in Catholic schools.

ric; Indeed. I find it amazing that those who are anti-religion know very little about the religion they oppose..They seem to thrive on streotypes, not the reality they claim to support...They dislike Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism but fail to argue why and how their system of banning free thought and conscience benefits us...Their argument consists of the streotypes they claim to be opposed to..Strange folk..

Simon: Given some posts on these threads, I wonder if Humour did in fact evolve.

I had a very good education (at a Catholic, faith school) in science to A level standard in Physics and Chemistry, other students had an education there to a similar standard in Biology. I do not recall any confusion on anyone's part in those circumstances. My contemporaries included faithful Catholics, agnostics and atheists. Why were you confused/what confused you?

Good post SF Fan.

< "Science is great - because it's true whether you believe in it or not" >

I have a great interest in -- and respect for -- science, SFF. But that's not necessarily correct. The emendation of scientific opinion over time provides an increasingly accurate view of studied phenomena, but scientific opinion on a specific phenomenon at any specific time might or might not be true. For example, who now believes in phlogiston? The concept is superseded. This adaptibility is a primary strength of science but it means that the above statement is not true.

ric; my son attended a catholic by postcode lottery, desp[ite my objections. That school asked us to put him forward for an open exam in a private secondary. He passed and got his scholarship. He passed the exam, his daddy did not pay for his entrance. He spends his time with students who have no idea of their privilage because Daddy pays all... My son apreciates his education because his primary schooling, in a Catholic (horror) school was advantageous to him. As I have always taught my kids: do not judge others because of what the ignorant demand; Judge according to reality. It is some of the posters on this thread that will drive our youth, knowledge and economy away...

So Spin- you were wrong yet again, you referenced the 50's, I referenced the 70's and today. Which do you think is earlier, the 50's , the 70's or today?

My wifes catholic school taught the literal truth of creation, and the rest of the mumbo- jumbo, and beat anyone who questioned it.

I was not confused- religion is sheer bunkum.

CA; Which dominates your thought; the 50s or 70s? I care not. You display a mode of thought I oppose in mind, body and cyber-space.: Fascism. I would never introduce you to our children..

Glorify: Tell us where the Qu;ran denies the science of evolution..Is not the attraction of Islam to abrahamic monotheists its acceptance of science? That which used to be valued in Islam but is now condemned?

Catholicism is the template. It can generally be used to describe all religion. Sorted.

Catholic church = a general description of religion. Got it.

Glorify: Muslim general belief- A general description of ignorance.. The Qu'ran is the truth, yes? Only your adherence to a text is important to your god..

Hey, there's a catholic church. Someone was raised in it as a child and forsook the evil of religion when they saw the light in old age. That counts as a legit argument against all religion, right?

It is very easy to argue against one another when one has no experience of what it is one is arguing over.
