Good News from Texas

Godly mathA fine school curriculum has finally been set up to teach children the mathematics of God:

Students will examine the nature of God as they progress in their understanding of mathematics. Students will understand the absolute consistency of mathematical principles and know that God was the inventor of that consistency. They will see God’s nature revealed in the order and precision they review foundational concepts while being able to demonstrate geometric thinking and spatial reasoning. The study of the basics of geometry through making and testing conjectures regarding mathematical and real-world patterns will allow the students to understand the absolute consistency of God as seen in the geometric principles he created. Students will demonstrate an awareness of the structure of a mathematical system, connecting definitions, postulates, logical reasoning, and theorems while exploring attributes of geometric figures.

This trend is catching on in American schools. PTAs are beginning to reject the secularist Darwinist Helioleftist nonsense that our children have had shoveled into them for the long decades of American moral decline.

There’s a lot of work left to do, of course. The moonbattery has pervaded American society to an alarming extent. How long it will take to undo the damage Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, Carter, and Clinton did to this country’s education system and moral fibre is anyone’s guess, but I’m confident that the Lord will stand by His beloved footstool, these United States.

I leave you with the mathematics curriculum of the future, and of a Christian nation:

ALGEBRA II
Students will examine the nature of God as they progress in their understanding of mathematics. Students will understand the absolute consistency of mathematical principles and know that God was the inventor of that consistency. Mathematical study will result in a greater appreciation of God and His works in creation. Students will extend their mathematical knowledge beyond Algebra 1 by continuing to develop an understanding and usage of advanced algebraic concepts including functions, polynomials, rational expressions, complex numbers, systems of equations and inequalities, and matrices. Students will develop calculator skills.

PRE-CALCULUS
Students will examine the nature of God as they progress in their understanding of mathematics. Students will understand the absolute consistency of mathematical principles and know that God was the inventor of that consistency. Mathematical study will result in a greater appreciation of God and His works in creation. Students who have successfully completed Geometry and Algebra 2 will develop skills in advanced algebra, analytic geometry, and trigonometry. The students will focus on the mathematics concepts that connect the thoughts of the mind with the realities of the universe, experiencing the creative power and order of God.

CALCULUS
Students will examine the nature of God as they progress in their understanding of mathematics. Students will understand the absolute consistency of mathematical principles and know that God was the inventor of that consistency. Mathematical study will result in a greater appreciation of God and His works in creation. The students will understand the basic ideas of both differential and integral calculus and its importance and historical applications. The students will recognize that God created our minds to be able to see that the universe can be calculated by mental methods.

    ART: The children will be asked to create a picture of their family. The pictures will then be examined, then destroyed before their very eyes. They will be yelled at and reminded that God is the only creator of families, and that their picture drawing is a horrible blasphemous sin.

  8. A local Bible college offers a class they call “College Mathematics”; it’s the highest level of math class they offer. The description from the catalog reads,

    “An overview of algebra and geometry, including functional relationships, linear and quadratic equations, representational systems, and statistics.”

    That’s college math. So your statements about Algebra II and Calculus are an exaggeration. It’s not even as good as you say.

    (Yes, people actually pay to attend this college, and according to their website, they’re still accepting applications for Fall 2007, so get yer app in today.)

  13. It’s due to those “worthless sodomites” BJ that we have all of this technology and advancements, including the real geometry and algebra that should be taught in schools.
    And it kills me to see old pagan and alchemical symbols and sigils used by Christians who have no clue what they mean. A good example is that triangle up there, which is nothing but the representation of a phallus. Obelisks mean the same thing. Another good one is a cross with a circle in the middle. That’s the symbol of the zodiac. If you’re a God-fearing, Jesus-loving Christian, it is absolutely ignorant to plagiarize an ancient occult symbol and use it for your own propaganda. The fish is a perfect example, just look it up. The only thing it does is make the people familiar with symbology laugh at you.

    Just when you think there’s no one stupider than the Atheists, the Wiccans come along and up the ante 3,000%. The stupidest part of all? “The cross is a zodiac symbol.” Astrology was a parlor game invented by Hippies in 1962, moron. Jesus was crucified on a cross. What do you think, that symbol was drawn out of a hat? “Triangles are phallic.” Who are you, Sigmund Freud? Is all geometry and mathematic thought based on sexual deviancy?

    That’s true Brandon. If you recall the Romans executed Spartacus and his fellow rebels with a mass crucifixion something like a 100 years before Jesus’ temporary death. Long after the Romans converted to Christianity crucifixion was a common form of execution for heretics like a Paulians. The cross as a symbol of capital punishment has a long history outside the life of Christ.

    Not much of a sacrifice if it was only “temporary”. How very cheap and tawdry. When I cut my hair or shave, it grows back, a temporary fix, so not a huge sacrifice on my part.

  41. Brandon, this was exactly my point. If Sisyphus had said “Crucific” instead of cross, he would have been correct, however he did not.
    The cross has been around as a religious symbol for a much longer time than christianity.

    Christianity has borrowed many of it’s other symbols, rites and holy days from other religions in the past. It’s a well documented practice that the church does not deny. Symbolism is Symbolism, plain and simple.

    Besides, I’d worship God – Not the cross(crucifix). Something about graven images and all that stuff somewhere in the front of the bible.

    Tyler,

    The Bible is a record of all kinds of extraordinary things God and Jesus have done; make 3+3+1=7, talking mules, flesh eating bears, world drowning floods, killing the first born of Egypt and so on.

    Jesus willingly suffered and died for your sins Tyler. That the price of sparing you an eternity of suffering is a three day time out just shows you what you are really worth. Jesus loved you so stop being such a jerk.

    This jesus character was/is part of the “holy trinity”, yes? How could he “suffer” if he’s supposed to be omnipotent and ever-living. Not much of a sacrifice to die if you know you’re coming back!!

    And he allegedly did this 2,000 years before I was born?? How very strange. And exactly what sins? As an atheist I don’t believe in “original sin” so can’t be that one. Hmmm, what else? Well, I didn’t ask him to do anything for me, seems like he wasted a trip…

    For the record, zombies don’t go to Heaven. Also, omniscience is not telepathy or psychic power. La Mona is probably telepathic/psychic. Those are Satanic parlor tricks. Jesus is outside of space and time. He Himself said, “Before Abraham was, I AM.” Mock that all you want, which I’m sure you will, being an ignorant, disrespectful little bigot who thinks he’s smarter than every Christian who ever lived for over 2000 years.

  51. Comment by Sisyphus: “Jesus is outside of space and time.”
    Now that’s a very convenient answer. Can I use it next time I can’t answer a question properly?

    The Universe exists because we can see it, measure it, and predict it. Your “god” is none of these (yes, yes, I know, he’s “outside of space and time”, blah, blah, blah) so given that choice, I’m sticking with the Universe.

    Science cannot explain how the Universe came into being, it’s something that will be answered by future generations. We can reproduce the big bang in a lab to a nanosecond after, what came before will come in time too. Patience. However, saying it was “god” gets you (or the human race) nowhere. It doesn’t answer the question, merely stops people from inquiring and asking “Why?”.

    The more you question science, the more answers you get. The more you question religion, the more questions you get.

  54. Sisyphus, no “atheist” (I use this term sparingly and in your context, i.e. anybody who’s not an ultraconservative) claims to know how the universe began or came into being. The Big Bang is entirely guesswork. The only reason it even exists is because somebody one day took some physics equations and said (hmm, what if I run them in reverse?)

    Basically, people extrapolate mathematical equations in reverse to come up with what might have happened back then. It is VERY experimental. However, in recent days scientists have been looking at the cosmic background radiation, and have found a point of ancient microwaves which matches the predictions that Big Bang models set up.

    So don’t get your undies in a twist. Nobody says the Big Bang is a fact or has been proven. It’s a model, an incomplete and highly theoretical model, but right now it’s the best we have.

    Marcia, I’m an atheist. I don’t believe in “god” or gods, therefore I cannot, and do not, believe in demons/satan.

    “We’re God-fearing folk around here…”
    Why do you fear this supposed loving “god”? What’s to fear?

    “and if an Atheist ever comes within 100 yards of my front door”
    And how would you know if this person was an atheist? Maybe your mailman is one? Maybe your neighbour? Or do you shoot everyone that “comes within 100 yards of my front door”??

    “I’ll have Ralph shoot him down”
    Ah yes, kill all those you fear. Much easier than trying to understand them. I think the word “Ignorance” was created for people like you.

  63. How is she a decent American woman? More like a slavering imbred loser.

    Go ahead and try to shoot me Marcia–didn’t you know all atheists have skin as hard as rock and evil force-fields to protect them? OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHH

    I’m surprised someone with such an esteemed education as yourself (lol) can even type.

  64. For all you know, she has a couple of PhDs and teaches in the Cincinatti area. Knock it off, Brandon.

  65. You know even if there was some omniscient being that was a god or God or whatever the hell you want to call it I would imagine, that since it created everything that its intellect would be so far beyond anything we could ever hope to comprehend that trying to make laws, rules, justifications for intolerance/ways of living in It’s name is just a venture into futility. It would literally be like ants trying to conceptualize our thought process. I realize that there are people out there who need to believe in something greater than themself to justify their existence but at what price does this escape from death (which is what religion is to me, mans way of coping with his own mortality-besides an institution of control used for political means that is) come?

    Holy wars? Inquisitions? Crusades?

    I am absolutely sure, that a being who created EVERYTHING would have the mental capability of understanding why its subjects choose to turn their backs on It…so they can truly live in peace. No more bickering and fighting over who is right. No more “Christians” standing outside abortions clinics screaming “Murderer, murderer!” at scared young girls. Which if you believe in all that immortal soul stuff then there is no death because the soul lives on so in the cosmic scheme of things there can be no murder, only sending a soul back to the Creator. And how can anything be “against God” if It is truly omnipotent? It would all be part of Gods design/plan which I hear about all the time. Seems he may have spent a long time on that plan, maybe he knows what he’s doing, maybe those women ARE doing Gods will if nothing can truly go against It.

    These and other thoughts are what arise when you actually start THINKING instead of blindly believing everything you’re told. As strongly as you believe in your religion, had you been born to parents who were atheists you would believe just as strongly in that.

    Fighting about make-believe is for children. It’s time to grow up and evolve as a species or we are going to destroy ourselves.

  66. “And how would you know if this person was an atheist? Maybe your mailman is one? Maybe your neighbour? Or do you shoot everyone that “comes within 100 yards of my front door”??

    Tyler,

    Someone doesn’t need a red “A” branded on their forehead to tell if they are atheist nor not. The elite European designer clothing covered with cat blood is enough of a give away. We Christians can see you kind coming a mile away.

  67. Very thoughtful, Mike. But absolutely wrong. None of what you wrote is going to help you in the afterlife unless you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. Think about that.

  68. “Very thoughtful, Mike. But absolutely wrong. None of what you wrote is going to help you in the afterlife unless you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. Think about that.”

    I have. The only verification that you can test that against is the Bible itself. Which, as we both know, has a religious bias.

    Religion in and of itself makes it impossible to questions because you automatically become a heretic for even trying to undermine or question God’s plan. Or, it’s OK to questions as long as you come to same conclusion everyone else has.

    You can dress whatever deity you wish, in whatever new fashion the emperor is wearing and it still amounts to foregoing your intrinsic nature to always question, to know, to evolve, to expand, to never remain static, to always be thoughtful, to never be satisfied with your knowledge and gobble up information like a witch in a candy house gobbles up children.

    If your forgiving, loving God can’t forgive me for not participating in religion because I’ve had enough of its control, enough of its atrocities in the name of this loving God, then that means it CAN’T do something. So, it isn’t omniscient, therefore not God. If your stating it WON’T forgive me then that’s applying human attributies, i.e. limits/incapabilities/limited understanding, on this deity you worship which would make it a rather childish, immature, human-like God. According to your stories we were created in His image, not the other way around.

    However I can understand how a lifetime of stagnation within a rigid set of beliefs would cause necrosis of the mind closing it to the billions of other possibilities out there.

    I’m pretty sure a cosmic deity who created all that is would understand too.

  69. “It’s good to hear that Texas is still Christian and American. They need to burn Austin to the ground, though. Burn it to the ground, and all those Sodomites and jazz musicians and professors with it.”

    Comment by Marcia P. — August 10, 2007 @ 9:03 am

    I live in Austin, TX.

    People who live here always state, “It’s a great place…just don’t expect the same from most other places here in Texas.”, to people who visit. Your comment attests to this statement.

    I don’t understand how people who profess to believe in a loving deity full of understanding and forgiveness are so filled with hate. Are so filled with rage and anger at the very notion that they don’t believe as they do. It is exactly this type of mentality that led to such great events that I outlined earlier, Crusades, Inquisitions, Holy Wars, Burning people to death because they do not believe as you do and you feel you must impose your beliefs because you are absolutely, unequivocally – RIGHT.

    One of my good friends is a Christian. He’s an open minded, cool, tolerant person to be around. Most importantly he’s intelligent. It’s people like you that give people like him a bad name.

    Quit it.

  70. Michael, not all Christians can (or should) be tarred with the same brush. I can only speak for myself, but I’m very much of the opinion that scolding and berating only leads to intransigence and a breakdown of communication. Personally, I think that the best thing that any Christian can do is to bask in God’s love, live as a good person, and try to be a kind Christian to all and sundry. Surely, the joy and contentment that emanates from within will do more to deter others from sin than any admonishments could ever do.

  71. I’m not tarring all Christians. Point and case – my good friend whom I mentioned in the previous response. I am of course speaking to the people who wish burn the city I live in to the ground because of their intolerant views. I care not what one chooses to believe so long as they do not inflict harm in any way upon others because of that belief.

    Whether it be figuratively or literally.

    Logic, reasonable thinking and common sense have deterred me from acts that would be considered sin in the eyes of those practicing Catholocism. If we come to the same consensus through different means in regards to being a good person I have no qualms with that. I see no reason why they should. I do not need them to think as I do and I cannot understand why they need me to think as they do.

    Mine is not a better way, simply different. I wish you no harm.

    Were this simple, school yard premise applied world wide I would imagine it would go a long way towards making things better.

    Yet we can’t, as a species it seems, evolve past this need to be RIGHT.

    I find that very sad.

    More terrorist speak. I sure hope the FBI starts monitoring this sight. If all Brownback supporters share these views then you are all in serious need of professional psychiatric help.

  74. Here’s my hope, a mass extinction of the species. That’ll shut ya up. Where will be your GOD?? Oh wait, all you pure people, will be in heaven, keep believing that malarky. All the world’s but a stage, for the hairless ape, called man. Well, does the stage come down, when our play is over? If a tree falls in the forest, and no one’s around to hear, does it make a sound? YES. So this world will survive the parasite called mankind.

  75. “Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s.”

    It sounds to me like a fairly clear delineation between Church and State. How about you folks leave religion out of politics, unless you really want to see politics meddling in religion? Otherwise I’m sure we could solve a lot of our national debt if we started taxing churches on their land and income. That’s a tax loophole that’s been abused for FAR too long.

  76. Today we are witnessing efforts to smuggle the Bible and other monotheistic bric-a-brac back through the window into the house after centuries of philosophical struggle to eject them through the front door. The struggle was led bey the Enlightenment and the French Revolution, socialism and Paris Commune, the left and the Popular Front, the libertarian spirit and May 1968, but also by Freud and Marx, the Frankfurt School, and the French left’s mistrust of the Nietzscheans.

    This itch to restore the trappings of religiosity arises strictly and etymologically from willingess to accept reactionary thinking. Not in the mannger of Joseph Le Maistre, Louis de Bonald, or rBlanc de Saint-Bonnet but in the Gramascian manner of a return to the diluted, deceptive, travestied, and hypocritically reactivated ideals of Judeo-Christianity.
