I am among those who identify myself as agnostic. I have posted in this thread stating that anyone who is offended by Merry Christmas wishes to be offended. I have no problem with people celebrating holidays. My beliefs fall in with many of our founding fathers or are close to them. I do not know what set the universe in motion, but I am reasonably certain whatever that force is, it has nothing to do with what happens in it. What gives your beliefs special privilege that they should be taught in school as fact to children who's parents may hold different religious beliefs? Which of the almost 34,000 versions through out the world should be taught? (some list this number as high as 40,000) Are you comfortable with all religious beliefs being taught in schools? Your "God is not allowed in schools" comment has been making the rounds in emails. The first time I read this nonsense was a child writing God a letter saying he is scared to go to school. God replies sorry I am not allowed in schools. This is something I would expect to see on a bumper sticker not in a serious discussion~
