Education is a need many contexts for all people.

Children have a need for education, and science is part of education.

Science is responsible for the technology that everyone takes for granted. To not teach science is to prevent children from being able to fill their needs in modern society.

That's social justice. All justice is social justice for a social species.

No I don't. because that seems to be your point. That science isn't always right.

That's fine, but has no relevance whatsoever to any sort of activism. It's just like a general paranoia.

If it means more than that, you certainly have not explained it.

All you do is accuse. That's really nasty, and you never say a meaningful thing.

I've lost the point with all this adolescent bullshit

What exactly is your purpose?

What do you need from me?

You're unbelievable. I have no clue why you're really here but you should really step back and look at who you are. :(

That's a lot of assumptions that you expect me to accept at face value and it would be very unscientific of me to do.

What is a need? Why is education a need? How does it correlate with other needs?

What are the other parts of education?

How does knowledge of science allows children to 'fulfill their needs in modern society'?

What is preventing people to teach science to children?

did you really not answer me, and just ask a lot of defecting questions?

lets just call it a day friend, i don't have free time to play around like this.

You couldn't answer the question without bullshitting, so you lost.

  1. You did not ask a question for me to answer, you just stated your opinion.

  2. I'm not deflecting because my questions are relevant to (and obtained from) your comment and needed to understand what you mean.

  3. For someone interested in truth, I find it laughable that you don't recognize the Socratic method.

Finally, this was not a competition and I'm not interested in a cerebrum measuring contest. You totally misread me.

What is that?

"I find it laughable."

This is too juvenile for me to continue.

You wrote a lot of words, and said absolutely nothing.

Try harder, or give up. You can't hang in the argumentation dept.

Give me a run for my money. <sigh>

All you do is ask deflecting questions when confronted with an opinion you don't totally agree with. This is getting out of hand.
