Happy birthday, Earth! (October 23, right?)


You do recall from Creationism 102 that the Earth was born on October 23, yes?

Why not celebrate, like these wise Austinites? Surely it’s scientific, and reasonable . . .

    I also wanted to mention this following article on schools, which may interest you. The writer speaks about a teacher friend of his.

    http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/g/a/2007/10/24/notes102407.DTL&nl=fix

    “But most of all, he simply observes his students, year to year, noting all the obvious evidence of teens’ decreasing abilities when confronted with even the most basic intellectual tasks, from understanding simple history to working through moderately complex ideas to even (in a couple recent examples that particularly distressed him) being able to define the words “agriculture,” or even “democracy.” Not a single student could do it.

    It gets worse. My friend cites the fact that, of the 6,000 high school students he estimates he’s taught over the span of his career, only a small fraction now make it to his grade with a functioning understanding of written English. They do not know how to form a sentence. They cannot write an intelligible paragraph. Recently, after giving an assignment that required drawing lines, he realized that not a single student actually knew how to use a ruler.

    It is, in short, nothing less than a tidal wave of dumb, with once-passionate, increasingly exasperated teachers like my friend nearly powerless to stop it. The worst part: It’s not the kids’ fault. They’re merely the victims of a horribly failed educational system.

    Then our discussion often turns to the meat of it, the bigger picture, the ugly and unavoidable truism about the lack of need among the government and the power elite in this nation to create a truly effective educational system, one that actually generates intelligent, thoughtful, articulate citizens. “

    Why believe such a silly theory when we know that the Hindus have the true chronology,

    “So, now we know that the Vedas, the Upnishads and the Puranas are all eternal Divine knowledges which were given by God to Brahma and then Brahma produced them 155.52 trillion years ago to the Sages of this brahmand who then produced them for the people of this earth planet, and Bhagwan Ved Vyas reproduced all of them before 3102 BC. A detailed description about their eternal is already given in the Articles 1 and 3. Then why is it that all these Indian and European writers unnecessarily tried to assume their date of production? It could be either to show off their intellectuality, or a release of the prejudice of their heart, or a blind following of earlier writers.”

    http://web.archive.org/web/20040504024616/encyclopediaofauthentichinduism.org/articles/58_age_of.htm

    “First take the examples of the writers like Jacobi or Tilak who said that the Rigved was written around 4500 BC or 4000 BC. They gave the reference of certain astrological indications which they found in the Rigved or some Grihya Sutra or Shatpath Brahman and produced their calculations. Every astrologer knows that the positions of the 27 nakchatras (lunar asterisms) in relation to the moon is always changing and it�s in a circular pattern. Thus, a particular position of the sun or a star or a nakchatra at a particular time and on a particular date of a year is such an event that would keep on repeating at the end of every cycle. It means the position of the stars which was on or about 4500 or 4000 BC, would have also been prior to that; and again prior to that also; and so on. So it would also have been a million years ago or a billion years ago, or even trillions of years ago when the Sages of Bharatvarsh received the knowledge of the Vedas and Puranas from Brahma, because the astrological science of the movement of the nakchatras remains the same.”

    And maybe you thought that xianinanity was bizarre.
