New law in Ohio

This is so very sad! A student can’t be marked wrong if their answer is based on their religion but scientifically incorrect.

The proportion of high

The proportion of high quality engineers (percentile of population) in the USA compared to other nations has been in a steady decline. This kind of crap will ensure the USA will continually slip further and further behind.

Next time I watch the movie "Idiocracy" I will lament the fate of the USA.

The US is in heavy decline

The US is in heavy decline across pretty much all measures, once you exclude the top 10% or so. A trend only accelerated voting in a supposed billionaire as potus.

If your household makes over 100k adjusted gross income a year or more, the US is one of the best places in the world to live. Below that? Not so much. As we speak the social services that prevents crushing poverty is getting steadily stripped away. A majority of americans can not handle a 400 dollar sudden expense without going into debt. But it seems like for most, as long as they can afford the latest smartphone, they don't really care.

It gets scary when you look at all the economical, educational, etc. numbers once you strip out the top 10%. I am still very surprised the bottom 90 % tolerate the existence of the 1%

Sometimes that smart phone is

Sometimes that smart phone is the only thing keeping them alive. It is smarter than they are and allows them access to the only services that work.

Something I have in common with them lol.

LogicFTW's picture

That is one majority most folks do not want to be in. Unfortunately percentages of upward mobility in income in the US is also in steep decline.

Yes, sometimes hard work, persistence and all that plays a role in financial success and you can find financial success/stability, but all too often it is luck. And that sucks, and is not fair at all.

I do agree, life is not fair. If I did other choices, I would maybe be in a better financial state. There is luck... and there is luck... Full societal "forces" that you can't do anything against them.

Why are only religious

Why are only religious beliefs exempt from scientific scrutiny?

How about comic book beliefs - I don't accept gravity because Superman can fly. I don't accept speeds being limited to 186k mile per second because the Flash (as well as Superman) can go faster.

How about just any personal beliefs - I don't agree that the sun is 93 million miles away because I think only witches use the number 93. I don't accept molecular theory because despite my best efforts with a pair of scissors, I've never seen a molecule.

Just when I begin to hope that science will be able to overcome many of the challenges we have, the morally superior morons step forward to quash that hope.

They are robbing religious

They are robbing religious students by giving them the chance to not get it right and poorly equipping them for the real world. Religious students would end up amassing undeserved academic honours and degrees.

@Redemption Re: "What the hell does this mean?"

Howdy. I'm afraid you need to be a bit more specific with your question if you actually want an answer. One, who are you addressing. And, two, what the hell does what mean?

"the company was transformed and Ward had played a vital role in bringing this about"

Glad to see you are finally asking questions instead of making stupid ass assertions. I hope this helps.

While I don't like that their bill has even come into question, at least it's only a bill and not law yet. We can still have hope that it will be rejected by the rest of the process. Any Ohioans out there should consider writing to their reps and senators.
