I argue that more people would benefit from going to community college first rather than going straight to a four year university.Definitions:Community College will be any college that is state/government funded and is a 2 year institution.By benefit, I mean that it would cost less money for students over the time it takes to get...

Is Creation real?

Political.Questioneer

I am a man who is all for Creation. I donate to Genesis Science Ministries, and dislike Darwin. I believe that Genesis is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Let me put it this way: The BIG BANG theory states that in approximately 3 minutes, the majority of the universe. However, in Genesis 1:1-5 say that the light turned on. And according to science, light travels at 186,000 miles per second(300,000 kilometers per second), so the light was active in 1 trillionth of a trilli...

"Art projects" in English classrooms do not help students and weaken their writing skills.

Electric

Art projects in English classrooms at the high school level do not help students learn how to write well. Students can barely put together a sentence in college, and the first few weeks of many college classes are wasted re-learning basic grammar and writing techniques because frustrated professors want students to write at a college level when many of them cannot. I personally find these "Art Projects" frustrating because they hurt my grades in high school. We were graded on our ability to d...

Evolution is tried and true and should be taught in the modern school system

TheMinorMiner99
FollowerofChrist1955

Hi. I am an evolutionist and an atheist, and enjoy talking to people who disagree with me. The way in which we avoid the topic of creation science in school is ridiculous, and needs to be rebuilt, taught using a modern scientific method, which evolution by natural selection provides for us. As multiple lines of evidence shows, the evolution model of life can be tested and has been proven. There is a mosquito in Hawaii who lays its eggs in between the ridges of crickets wings, and when they h...
