One of my good friends is a highschool chemistry teacher. A few weeks ago she was presenting the elements of the human body to her classes. At the end of one of her classes a young girl asked her, "Where are the dirt atoms?" In confusion, my friend asked her to elaborate on her statement. The girl replied, "You know, since " God" created Adam from dirt, Where are the dirt atoms?" I'm sure you all realize the issue with this question so I'm not going to explain it. My issue with it is that my friend could not correct her. All she could say was that there is no such thing as "dirt", its a mixture called soil and we don't have "dirt" atoms. Also, she told the girl that she would have to speak to her parents about it because she couldn't discuss it by law. Should this sort of "babying" be tolerated? Should teachers be forced to keep silent from correcting a confused student? Also, feel free to post some more false sciences from religious documents. I could use a laugh. \m/
