|It's not Conservapedia, per se, but anyone can anonymously sign up for access to the course materials at Eagle Forum University.|
Andy Schlafly is teaching American History, Principles of Microeconomics, Evolution & Politics, and Evolution Fallacies, among others.
The Evolution Fallacies materials might be the most highly-concentrated stupidity I've ever seen. Even dumber than Conservapedia itself. I recommend for your own sanity you stay far, far away.
But, I will supply you with the following excerpt simply because you may not be aware that the very existence of mathematics disproves evolution:
|Ask an evolutionist if 2+2=4 exists. Or if mathematical pi, the parameter for calculating the distance around a circle, exists. Are they merely figments of human imagination?|
Put another way, did humans discover arithmetic and geometry, or did humans invent them?
For most of us and most mathematicians, including the highly celebrated late Paul Erdos, the answer is obvious: humans discovered these principles, which have always existed. "Dr. Erdos, like many mathematicians, believed that mathematical truths are discovered, not invented." http://www.cise.ufl.edu/~ddd/erdos.html Ditto for Albert Einstein: "An equation is for eternity." (Encycl. Brit.)
But for evolutionists, non-material principles do not exist. If they existed, then there would be the question of where they came from. There would also be the question of how nature might relate to these and other principles.
And there would be the question of what other principles exist based on math or logic. Like law and religion, for example.
Materialistic evolution simply does not allow for the existence of principles. But principles plainly do exist.
What I want to know is whether anyone takes these "classes" seriously. Do homeschool parents actually assign this drivel to their children? God, I hope not.
From their "diagnostic quiz":
|14. The phrase the separation of church and state can be found where? |
(a) in the original Constitution.
(b) in the Bill of Rights.
( c ) in the amendments enacted after the Bill of Rights.
(d) in the Declaration of Independence.
(e) in none of the above, but in arguments by people seeking to censor Christianity.
Oooh! I know! Pick me! Pick me!!!!!111!
"The . . . um . . . okay, I was genetically selected for blue eyes. I know there are brown eyes, because I've observed them, but I can't do it. Okay? So . . . um . . . coz that's real genetic selection, not the nonsense Giberson and the others are talking about." - DO'L
