Warforger;5183977He's not saying your wrong, he's saying that just because of the tiny details that makes it hard to explain are there doesn't mean it translates to a God existing.
fair enough. But, again my ideas are difficult for me to write down. I mean it could make sense but my c+ grammer makes writing impossible.
Why l cant spell for crap, but l get my message out there ? People are more forgiving than that, there are many people from outside the english speaking word that cannot spell, that are still respected as humans. Dont let anything hold you back from your opinion is what lm saying. l dont really agree with you, but you should still post if you want to. Dont be intimidated ! gotta love that spellin !
Sedistix;5183860Religion is an emotional response, not a rational one. It answers nothing.
I prefer emotional responses personally. Rationality is boring.
Also, a bit late on the draw on this one, but anyways.
I'd agree with your first statement. However, I disagree with you on the issue of if theology should be taught in public school at all. I do not think a public school should require students to study theology but I'd have no problem if it was offered as an elective course to fulfill a requirement. In fact, I think it may even be helpful considering the misconstrued views people have of the various religions (the followers of those religions included).
I think there is plenty else the needs to be taught during the school day itself. If parents want their kids to receive a religious education they can either send them to a religious school, or if that is too expensive they can send them to catechism. Or is catechism only a Catholic thing?

That may be so but if that's the case maybe Religions should be taught - if at all - alongside other emotional responses. In a fictional literature class perhaps...

I already said I don't want it taught in public schools as anything other then history anyways.
