I'd forgotten how bad those books are--even some since revived are barely better on things like slavery and racism. I am terribly glad that my private school uses a majority of secular texts, esp. in the middle school. Even so, I suspect creationism dominates the science discussions.

“Bible-believing Christians cannot accept any evolutionary interpretation.”—Life Science, 3rd ed., Bob Jones University Press, 2007

There sure are a lot of Bible-believing Christians that would take issue with that fundamentalist statement.

I love this one: 3. “God used the Trail of Tears to bring many Indians to Christ.”

It should be stated: 3. “God used the Trail of Tears to reduce the number of Indians to manageable numbers.”

Yeah... Genocide for Jesus...

I am rendered nearly speechless with rage from shit like this.

Do these text books condemn algebra as Islamic math?

Seriously, this revisionist history is right out of Stalin's USSR or North Korea or some nationalist regime that falsifies history and white washes the bad stuff.

At this point do the writers of these text books actually believe these entries or they on purpose re-writing history like this because they feel they need to lie in these cases to make sure the children grow up right and they are too young for the actual truth and when the kids are already securely in the camp will some select be told the truth but only so they know how to spin the truth when it is exposed?

As someone who lived in northern Louisiana for 25+ years, ultimately moving out of the state in the early 90s after seeing them attempt - and almost succeed - to put David Duke in the Governor's office, I can attest to the mindset exhibited in the article. I distinctly remember blatant historical revisionism in public High School History books (both La. State, and US History) with regards to the "War between the States" (as they wrote it), reasons for the Civil War, and post-war Reconstruction. Slavery was almost completely glossed over, and the Confederacy was depicted in an extremely favorable light. Criminal acts by the Ku Klux Klan, as well as 20th Century developments like Jim Crow, segregation, and anything to do with the Civil Rights movement was firmly rooted in a strongly racist mentality.

How do we get out of this pickle? Who should be responsible for arbitrating "truth"? Clearly, majority rule doesn't work.
