New (Testament) Math

Dubya's least favorite philosopher would undoubtedly be Nietzsche, because Fred considered Christianity a religion of slaves. (Although to be fair, there are things Dub might grossly misinterpret to his advantage in Beyond Good and Evil). But Dubya's allies are certainly doing their part in pushing Nietzsche into Nostradamus-land as predicter par excellence.

The linked blog posting from the most excellent Jesus' General contains excerpts from a recent Inquisition-approved textbook provider. Lots of righteousness on display. Check out the math test questions at the end of the entry.

If our schools churn out enought students taught this way, we will indeed be a nation of slaves -- slaves to our Chinese and Indian masters, who use numbers for things other than references to King James-version pages.
