As you can see I have added a poll on the right side, and this weeks question is, Do You Think Region Should Be Taught in Schools?
I asked this because well I live in Alberta now and if you want to go to elementary and high school that is not religious you have to go to private school. But I grew up in la Belle Province and religion is not part of school, and for a really good reason. This country is the most diverse nation in the world, how can you teach one religion to the school body that could be made up of a 100 faiths. How would you feel if from now on in school they taught the Koran?
Religion should be something that is practice in the home, and be a private matter, teaching it in school just is one more way for one view to be pushed upon the masses. Over the history of humanity, what has been the major cause of most wars? RELIGION. When are we going to learn that it doesn’t matter what you believe you have no right to tell someone else that they are no good or that they don’t matter because they do not believe in your faith.
Look at the Middle East, the supposed birth place of Christianity. They have been fighting even before the modern calendar, all because they each believe something else and they think each is wrong. It just doesn’t make sense. To teach religion in school just leads to more hatred for others.
If you are going to teach religion in school, fine teach the basic concepts of the major religions of the world just not one.
Everyone knows that I am atheist, I find no need for religion, I find no need for faith, and I definitely do not find the need to believe in a god.
People have been studying this thing called the bible for millennia; well you know what like every other story out there is changes from story teller to story teller. And that’s all it is, a story; just like Cat in the Hat is a story so is the bible. Now I know I am going to get a really nasty look from my other half on this post but she knows my views on this matter, so it shouldn’t come as any surprise that I would finally post something on this issue.
In my mind this world would be so far more advanced if religion was never a question.
To quote one of my teachers. “ I have bought the condo next to the boilers in hell” wait that would mean I would have to believe in that. HAHAHA hell, don’t get me started on that one, IF YOU DON’T FOLLOW THIS BOOK OF STORIES YOU ARE GOING TO HELL. Sounds like the makings of a cult, oh ya Christianity is a cult.
