now let me guess AndyB - your mind is made up and not subject to change? In which case, what is the point in offering an alternative view, as you'll simply reject it? I cant think of a single good reason for children to be taught religion in school. But I do believe that children should be taught a...

Do you think this'll be a temporary situation or will I have to look elsewhere for my new ultra-silent PC?

I can get one imported for $130, but that much for a 430W PSU is criminal.

I don't think it does much harm to teach about religion in school although I would like to see it presented in a way that clearly shows that it is a belief and not fact. Kids will make up their own minds when they are old enough to understand the world in a more scientific way, just as they will sto...
