Why christian Homeschooling Scares MePosted by Phil Ferguson on August 5th, 2012 – 25 Comments – Posted in Uncategorized
Have you seen this photo that is making the rounds?
What can a child learn from this?
Nothing! It will actually make them stupider. “…the sun may be the source of most electricity.” How do they get the wires up there?
I would be surprised if the person that wrote this could tie their own shoes.
Well Bob Jones University Press has come to the defense of this crap and it makes the page above sound smart!
A number of people have taken the opportunity to ridicule the science that is presented here as well as the Bible.
I’m not sure. Are they claiming that we ridicule the bible or that it has science about electricity.
The basic point being made is that Christians are just out of it; we don’t have a clue; we are “two hundred years” out of touch with reality.
Yes! So true.
The answer comes down to viewpoint.
What? It comes down to facts! What is the truth!
If you believe that man can know everything and that science is the path to that knowledge, then you would say yes; Christians are befuddled.
I don’t think we can know everything but science IS the path to knowledge. So, YES, christians are befuddled and this book continues that fine tradition for another generation.
Christians acknowledge that there is much humans do not know about our world.
Wow – that would be nice. This is actually the position of science. That is why one does science. If we ever know everything – science would stop.
While we all know what electricity does, no one really knows what it is. Not surprisingly, many reputable scientists admit such limitations.
What? Name one! Just in case anyone from Bob Jones stops in…. here is a link about electricity on this thingy called Wikipedia. Even a 4th grader can read it. That is unless they a victim of a christian home school program.
