Have you ever picked up a textbook and found some negative comment about God or religion? This is what I am referring to in the title.
It is common knowledge that the education system does not allow religion to be talked about in school. The sad part is that textbooks do mention God in usually negative ways but never allows for the voice of religion to be heard. I don’t think this is fair. If the religious voice can not be heard in school then the educational system should not be allowed to make a reference about God in school or in their textbooks in any context.
A class in philosophy or a class in the history of religions might be the only exceptions that I can think of. The religious institutions of the world need to take a stronger stance regarding this. If a teacher mentions God in a positive way we have the liberals wanting the teacher to be removed from the school.
It seems that this should work the other way around also and if textbooks mention God in any negative way then those textbooks should be banned and if teachers make negative comments about God then they should also be removed from the school.
People who believe in religion should stand up against the educational systems and sue these educational systems when they don’t abide by their own rules.
I don’t need to have my son or daughter hearing negative comments about God or religion when the educational institution is trying to make some kind of a point in putting down the religious viewpoint in favor of science. The teachers can still teach science without interjecting any comments about God or religion. God and religion are areas that they know little or nothing about.
Teach the science and let it stand on its own merit meaning they need to teach the students where the laws of nature came from and if they can not answer these tough questions, then they just need to say nothing about it. It needs to be remembered that scientists did not create the laws of nature, they are only making an attempt of explaining them. It also needs to be remembered that the scientific theory of today will be replaced by the scientific theories of tomorrow. This is especially true when you hear people exclaim that this or that theory is more than a theory.
I would appreciate hearing any stories related to the above subject.
