What if there was one book that influenced history, language and culture more than any other?

What if that book was not included in any curriculum of public education?

Wouldn’t that be stupid?

....wait, .... oh yeah, that is the way it is.

(Assuming you are talking about the Bible)

What if that book contained numerous historical and scientific errors?

What if the main purpose of that book was to teach an unproven (And unprovable) theology?

What would the purpose be of introducing such a book into a school curriculum?

We can teach the impact of the Christian religion on Western Civilization (and we do) without introducing its Holy Text.

Asuming? You really think there’s another option?

In the long run every book contains errors.

Theology is not supposed to be objectively provable.

Purpose? History language and culture.

Your last one makes no sense.

Hello urbrother.

It is easy all the continents, it has its strength and countries and everyone has its history.
And for, better understand, we have to respect each other.
For example, my country has a richer history than your country, I have to respect you, it is not your country's fault to have a less rich history but you have your culture, and everyone has to respect.
Examples. Egypt - China - Roman Empire - Greece etc.etc. It has rich history that belongs to all mankind.

Em lingua portuguêsa » In Portuguese language

È fácil todos os continentes,tem o seu pôvo e países e todos tem a sua história.
E para ,melhor entendimente temos que respeitar mutuamente.
Por exemplo meu país tem uma história mais rica do que o seu país,eu tenho que respeitar, voçê não tem culpa do seu país ter uma história menos rica mas voçê tem a sua cultura,e todo mundo tem que respeitar.
Exemplos. Egipto - China - Império Romano - Grécia etc.etc. Tem história ricas que pertence á toda humanidade

EM - IN

LINGUA - LINGUAGEM- IDIOMA = English LANGUAGE

Portuguêsa - Portuguese

Feminine - Portuguêsa

Male - Português


Friends in the Portuguese language we have several words, for a

here is the example » LINGUA - LINGUAGEM- IDIOMA = English LANGUAGE


I mean if my English is bad, it also has to do with the example that is here and has to do with the bad English translation google - bad english.
I apologize

Nothing wrong with teaching about the bible. But it should include the Koran, the tenets of Hinduism plus most other major religions.

Feeding christian propaganda, or Islamic propaganda or any other religious propaganda only is just plain wrong though.

Always have a contingency plan. If plan A don't work use plan B and if that don't work use plan C and if don't that don't work take it ail the way up to plan Z.

History? As I already said you don’t use the Bible to teach history because it’s historically inaccurate? Besides, what history is it teaching? The book ends almost 1,500 years before America is ever discovered.

How is it teaching language? The original writings are in languages no longer used. To teach english we have far better books to do that.

Culture? Which culture? The Bible concerns itself with one tribe from the Middle East. Western European culture was influenced by the religion the Bible is the holy text of but you don’t need to study the Bible to understand the influence.
