Story here. This is such a farce.

Home fooled: ‘The Loch Ness monster is real’

-Australian homeschool kids learn from a US curriculum
-Taught Loch Ness monster is real and evolution wrong
-THE PUNCH: Homeschooling for God and other mythical beings

SCOTLAND’S Loch Ness monster exists. She’s a plesiosaur, a living dinosaur, and her existence shows God created the Earth and evolution is bunkum.

That’s what Australian homeschool kids can learn from a US curriculum being distributed here.

Families are using the Accelerated Christian Education curriculum, which has sparked controversy worldwide for using magical imaginary beasts like Nessie to argue that God created the world quite recently and that the Darwinian theory of evolution is wrong.

I read about this happening in the US too. I guess truth and reality aren’t on their curriculum…

I once heard that reality is a crutch for those who can’t handle drugs, and, if you’re teaching that prehistoric reptiles live in Loch Ness, your drugs must be pretty powerful stuff! Almost like an opiate… wink

There are an awful lot of people alive today who prefer to believe their own version of reality rather than face the truth of things.  This is just one more example of how widespread ignorance really is.
