It still amazes me that this is even trying to get passed. It explicitly says that critical thinking excercises will be removed because it undermines fixed beliefs and parental authority.
How could anyone have the mental retardation tot ry and pass this?
I think thats why people always get duped by Pascal's Wager. It is either, believe and be rewarded or don't believe and be punished. Theists haven't really stopped to question, "Is there even a reward or punishment?"
I'm personally not a fan of deism. Its really, as Dawkins described it, "watered down theism." Its really just a last resort to theism. Its the "well its not the Christian God, but I still want to believe."
