Re: Turns out Evolution Is A Racist Concept...

Exactly. I mean, if you look at some of the shit in leviticus, it becomes clear that this is a different God to the one in the NT. I think the main thing to remember,, (providing of course you are christian,) is that the bible is the word of God through man. You have to be able to separate the cultu...

Re: Stupid School Policies

Sorry, didn't make myself clear. For most of the day, especially in summer, you can have a two inch tie, shirt hanging out, top button undone and blazer in you bag and no-one really cares. And in England that's not so bad- at least its just black and white. Another of the schools in my town has brow...

Re: Stupid School Policies

We have a crazy IT teacher. Not taking for GCSE I wouldn't know, but I have heard that he spends all his teaching time boasting about how he can tell exactly what everyone goes on a school. He has about 10 firewalls on the school network, most of which are stupidly crap. One of the old ones blocked ...

Re: xkcd warhammer fantasy roleplay game

Basic History Georgius is from a medium-sized village north of Middenheim. The village suffered from huge plagues of rats, and, as the main rat catcher in the area, Georgius made a fortune. He was free with his money, as the rats crippled the local economy, and, he reasoned, if he didn't spend it th...

Re: Turns out Evolution Is A Racist Concept...

Well, in the UK I learned about evolution in year 8, but personally knew the basic theory in year 5/6. It's like a basic part of science- I did at about the same time as balancing chemical equations and the periodic table. So it just seems surprising that there are twelfth graders in the US who don'...

Re: "Ouch" moments in school

My English teacher was writing on the board, and mis-spelled several easy words. Me and the other smartasses ripped the piss out of her for about half an hour, until she finally snapped, gave the pen to me, and said, "well then you do it" Luckily I spelled everything she gave me right, whi...

What's the religious education like there? Just based on Christianity, or other religions as well? Completely off topic, but I'm curious.

Re: weird social roles you find yourself in

I used to be the nice, friendly, go to for advise guy. Recently though, I've become much more sarcastic, spiky and cynical, (probably a becoming a teenager thing, I dunno) so now I think I am more on the outside of the group. This suits me better, as then I can say what I actually think- for example...

Re: Turns out Evolution Is A Racist Concept...

But I think without even a concept of evolution, those observations would just lead to "Wow, God sure is awesome, he creates all kinds of stuff". This only works if you don't even know evolution exists though... I think most creationists I have come across were able to get access to enoug...

I'm an evolutionist Christian who thinks the bible is overrated.
