More importantly, 4th grade students still get stickers? Seems a bit too old
Ever see a 4th grade science quiz that says '4th grade science quiz' on it?
Someone posted it on facebook.
I'm calling shenanigans.
I'd be inclined to agree, but I've seen enough fundamentalist stuff like this to think it may be real, even with "4th Grade Science Quiz" on it. Poe's Law being what it is.
I was always told that behemoth was more like an even larger super-hippo that went extinct.
8. A woman's genitals are the property of her husband. True False
It could be a small school with multiple grades in each classroom or a school where the teacher teaches multiple grades each day.
100 kids in a school of K-6th would be 14-15 kids per class.
Of course it's fake. Another "shit I don't have a story, let me go on Reddit" example. Not a bit of evidence.
Didn't even bother to change handwriting before doing the grade. It's not even a good forgery.
So now HuffPo is sourcing their stories from inconclusive Snopes articles? Journalism is dead.
They get partial credit for admitting it could be bullshit, but a story that could be bullshit should never see the light of day.
I saw the handwriting giveaway too. All the circles around the answers come together the same way as the zero in the grade, the closure is under and inside the starting point.
Besides, it doesn't look like child writing.
For the record, the Behemoth in Job 40 is most definitely not an Apatosaurus (Brontosaurus)
An animal that large cannot lie under a tree or be hidden by reeds and lotuses. Also, you'd think they would mention something about its neck, which they don't, and look at the last verse - "pierce its nose." Apatosaurus doesn't have a nose. It has breathing holes towards the top of its skull - pretty much between the eyes. Not even a creationist quiz would make that mistake, methinks.
If we spotted it, you'd think a journalist for a billion dollar media company could ask a handwriting expert to look.
So someone wrote into Snopes saying it was their kid and that they were pulling him out of that school. Did they mention the name of the school or where it is? Because every time I see one of these "you won't believe what they taught my kid at school" stories, it's always the mother on the news holding the damn quiz in her hand, not a viral internet thing on Facebook with no context. Sorry, not buying it. Obviously there are people out there who think this way, but I don't think this is legit.
That would require work and time. Doing work and doing it patiently and correctly makes it harder to be the first one to get the news out, and everyone knows that the fastest news outlet is the very bestest news outlet. Ratings!
It's so fucking fake, every question is one used to (rightfully) mock the moron fanatical Christians that believe this stuff. Why would a Christian school pick every single question outsiders use to make fun of them, and put them on the same quiz?
The only way I'd believe it is if we're given the name of the school, and the school makes a statement regarding the quiz. And if that happens, we should burn the school down.
Now do you people see why I think ripping stories from social media with absolutely no checking is bad journalism?
What a buncha non-believers in this thread. You people need faith!
Thankfully Don doesn't disappoint when there's a possibility that religion might be mocked on a message board.
Troll somewhere else. We're mocking journalists.
How dare you! Sideboobpo is 1st rate journalism!
notice the "news" in the URL
I'd be worried about anybody who thinks a blog is journalism. And despite what they'd like to think, HuffPo is just a blog like any other.
Unsurprisingly, the Snopes article says no such thing, and the quoted word "probably" doesn't appear anywhere in it.
