I'm Atheist and I go to a catholic school. It pisses me off when I'm learning about something like evolution, and we're taught "God created humans before any other life form." And this kind of thing happens quite often

I don't mind being taught about religion, but i don't like it when it gets in the way of learning something else/something more important.

I also thought that catholics believed in evolution...

Your thoughts on Catholicism and the belief in evoluion are correct. That is odd what your school teaches. Unfortunately, you do go to a private school, so it sounds best if you try to ignore it.

My religion teacher was also my science teacher

What part of "Catholic School" do you not understand? They're not gonna go quote Darwin, when it clearly goes against thier beliefs. Stop being silly

Are you mad? Of course not. Put yourself in their shoes, their religion is based on the fact that their god loves them above all else, and then they find out some bearded maniac says they used to be monkeys?

I feel for you. Then again, you've got a great incentive to actually do some education on your own.

Creating humans first doesn't even make sense; these guys seem to be off.

lol I find that hard to believe. I did high-school in a Catholic school in Alberta, Canada too and the religion was non-existent besides the actual Religion class. I dunno, maybe Edmonton is just weird like that.

Ever since Pope Leo XIII, Catholics have accepted the theory of Evolution.

The theory of evolution doesn't go against the beliefs of Catholicism.

just out of curiosity why is it ok for anyone but the christians or catholics to share their views with anyone without it being considered propoganda?

just my thought
#18
why don't you just consider what they're saying to you. You don't have to accept it obviously but the least you could and should do is to consider it
#19
I'm not in a cotholic school, but I'm actually catholic because I'm bapticed (however it is written, in spanish it is "bautizado") and so, I'm like really tired of "my religion" but my family is like REALLY religious.. so, I've got no choice.. unless I do some sort of strike..

Christian actions (Ex. a Bible placed in front of a court room) have been subject to much controversy in the past.

If you weren't lazy enough, you could have easily found the section that proves my point in a matter of seconds, with a citation of a legitimate source. I didn't link that source because it is a PDF file.
#26
^ yes i suppose you are right but at least their beliefs make sense unlike atheists...
i mean honestly to say you dont believe in god, is basically acknowledging that there is one and you just don't believe in it, its like me saying i dont believe in trees. It doesnt mean that they don't exist it just means i dont believe in them
#27
I went to a Catholic elementary school but we didn't delve too deeply in science at that age so I didn't see too many contradictions. This was also when I still believed in Christianity.

ever heard of the crusades? besides, christians specifically catholics are a large majority, and you know how jumpy minorities (not a black joke so relax) get when they feel threatened by a majority.

I would express my gr1m frostbitten distaste for generally all religion, but I'd probably get a bit tangental and offend people. I respect people's beliefs, but don't like at all the methods of misinformation, questionable motives, and plain lies that organised religion uses.

Either drop out and go somewhere prepared to teach you the truth; or stop bothering with that **** and teach yourself via INTERNETS.

Teaching science isn't, or at least shouldn't be, "sharing your view". It's a subject that deals with facts, it's not society class etc

I went to catholic school, i was taught about Darwin, evolution, dinosaurs and all that jazz... They also said "Do not by any means take the bible literally" as it was written for simple people back then, and no one at the time would have understood about it. At least thats what they told me. (I'm catholic but i don't really believe in the whole religion as an institution)

These days, it's pretty conformist to act "non-conformist". Who's the conformist now?
