...they would in turn be better educated on religious matters?
After reading through some of the "this country was founded on Christianity" answers to another question I am continually astounded by the amount of people who are not only undereducated on religion, but on HISTORY...
I mean, ALL religions are based on myths, so they are subjective. They can be interpreted differently depending on who is teaching. History on the other hand, isn't something which should be based on myth - although it is. We teach historical myths rather than fact, and then as adults our nation is undereducated and we can't understand why...
And on the wake of this survey stating that American's don't know religion, I wonder if the two work hand in hand more than we tend to see.
So, do you think if we better educate our children on historical FACT rather than myth, they would have a better understanding of today's religious beliefs and basics?
