Why should we believe school books any more than we do the Bible?


People tend to take school books as fact, even though foreign and domestic leaders have always used education as indoctrination, Hitler, Stalin, and Mao are prime examples of this. The Bible is an historical work, unchanged for thousands of years, isn't that more reliable than our ever changing educational books?

    When it comes to the Bible and many other ancient texts, there are interpretations, such as New International, American Standard, King James... where the original language is interpreted. Then you have paraphrased, a re-writing from an interpretation

    Children tend to accept whatever they are taught as truth. That is why indoctrination works so well. Parents, on the other hand should question everything their children are taught, but most don't.
