This Is How You Create A Future Right Wing Terrorist (IMAGES)

Ronald Reagan -- "Facts are stupid things.'

Have you ever wondered how people like Michele Bachmann can exist? How is it that a person can be in the running for President of the United States and be so woefully uneducated as to believe that dinosaurs lived at the same time as man?

Well wonder no more!

This is a picture uploaded to Reddit and people were so amazed (and nauseated) that it’s gone viral. See if you can figure out what’s wrong with this quiz:

Hint: Every answer is wrong.

Now, this is allegedly a test from a private religious school so they can teach whatever facts they want. If you need your students to be completely misinformed in order to keep them believing your mythology, that says more about you and your mythology than it does about the world.

But it’s far, far worse than just teaching easily disproved misinformation; the school is also taking great pains to teach their students how not to think:

Who should we always trust? – GOD!!!!

What is the “History Book of the Universe?” – Bible!!!

The next time someone says the earth is billions (or millions) of years old, what can you say? Were you there

This is not education. This is indoctrination, pure and simple. Not only is it teaching children to doubt any other source of information, it’s teaching them to how to metaphorically stick their fingers in their ears and yell “LALALALALA I CAN’T HEEEEEAR YOU!”

This is how you raise a child to be a lifelong conservative: Do not question. Do not think. Do not be open to other points of view. There is one Truth and one Truth only. Anyone who questions is an enemy and a liar. Do not trust them. All information that does not support your beliefs is a lie. Do not trust it. This how you create a radical extremist. This is how you raise a terrorist. Do you think I’m going too far? Do you think Islamic fundamentalists spring fully formed from oil wells in the Middle East?

The child abuse (yes, it’s child abuse) pictured above is one of the many reasons that liberals fight tooth and nail to keep religion out of schools. The children that grow up believing this propaganda will grow up to be dangerously ignorant and dangerously fanatic. They will grow up to bomb abortion clinics and threaten “Second Amendment Remedies” when they continue to lose at the ballot. They will insist that the only way to “take back their country” will by “watering the tree of liberty.”

Futurist Isaac Asimov once said, “Violence is the last resort of the incompetent.” But what happens when you purposely raise an entire generation to be incompetent?
