Where We Stand: Evolution Education
I know we’ve been making it sound like we gods are fairly apathetic about what you humans do, and that’s because, for the most part, we are. So hopefully, it doesn’t come as a surprise that when it comes to education, most of us don’t care about what’s being taught. It better not come as a surprise that I do.
Specifically, as it says in the title, about evolution and its nemesis, creationism. Obviously, I’ve been telling you how it happened in my reality, and a while ago, I told you how it happened in other realities, and how that was possible. But as far what should be taught in schools, at least in a society that says its free and intelligent, depends on what the class is. If it is a theology or religion class, then of course you should talk about what religion says about how you came to be.

A group of people wanted to see Father for themselves, so they started to build a tower…
But more on that next week.
