When I was a young boy I learnt that there was a Santa Claus, Tooth Ferry, Boogey Man, Holy Spirit and such. But when I began school my teacher told me otherwise. The Hold Spirit I had more difficulties with, the church continued to give me false information.
Now I am grown up and now I know for sure that observations and science goes hand in hand.
What would happen if I in the age of 10 years was taught by school that science is wrong? That all there is to know about physics was to be read in a black book with thin pages and old language? And not only thought but my entire future was dependant of that I believed this false facts? Was it possible to enter college, high school, university, with the information that the rainbow was could not be understood without the book of genesis?
With such knowledge from the entire school hood, could it be possible to work as an engineer and plan a mission to Mars? I don't think so.
So from the age of ten, I think 6 years of false teaching will ruin my entire chance of being of any help bringing people to Mars, construct fusion nuclear plants, even building a suspension bridge. "With the help of god it will hold. If not, it's because of our collective sin.".
Six year of intelligence destruction and a young boys chances is ruined. Only one generation from now with creationism ideas taught from school and USA will have no future engineers, physicists, chemists, well all technology we have now and its future extrapolation will be forever lost. Satan laughs.
The school system will be lost in a very short period of time. Goodbye Mars. Goodbye fusuin. Goodbye with our civilization as we know it.
Now I sound pessimistic! I hope and pray (?) that science will protect itself!
