The source of this quiz is the father of the student who took it. He will not identify the school until June, after his daughter finishes the school year there, after which she will move to another school. Snopes rates this item as "probably true.

I'm pretty much speechless here. Plus, the test speaks for itself.

I would guess that the beef is teaching religion in science class and grossly contradicting established science.

Well, the dinosaurs died because they were so heavy they sank in the mud as they exited the ark. Fortunately, elephants float.

@edgarblythe,
Some elephants don't float. Please don't ask me how I know. Kids just get so attached to their pets.

Elephants have trunks to grab trees until the mud dries up.

Any of th kids exposed to this BS who remain in their faith communities will probably not have a problem as a result of this. Any kids who go on to a higher education will have to disabuse themselves of this nonsense and probably the worst they will endure is a terrible embarrassment. These folks are conscientiously fighting the culture war. Note that among the first few true/false questions they are asking if the earth is billions of years old and is dinosaurs lived millions of years ago. They seem to be attempting to " protect" these children from secular propaganda, but the in process they are providing them with the majority scientific view. I suspect it will all come out in the wash.

@Setanta,
As far as we can tell, dinosaurs became extinct for several reasons as shown

Interesting that the answer to 15 may be reasonable as dinosaurs varied from over 100 feet long to the size of a modern chicken.

@bobsal u1553115,
In the fourth grade I discovered my love for writing. Then immediately felt I should not love it because I was afraid of revealing my home/not public/secret I felt, life. Writing can define a person if the person writes what is in their heart. Not what they write but how they write; how they write as to how they use their words, not what words they use. Some people will play dumb with you to maybe try to upset you. Writing can reveal who a person is at heart depending on if the writer decides. The writer can be very intelligent and can mislead one into thinking they are someone they're not. Writing is the same as speaking.
Had a journal/diary when younger I wrote in but I chose to not write was in my heart revealing the troubles affecting my life. But at the time when younger I didn't realize I had chose to not write what was in my heart. I looking back understand I must had been afraid to write because when you're that young you fear who is in control of your life who is deliberately making you more crazier than what you already believe and you haave the idea of they going through your journal, diary when you're not home.
I'm not sure I'm explaining this well.

@hawkeye10,
so we have to waste taxpayer money on cases that weed out these idiot teachers and administrators. Clemson hs a really good Bio dept so Im sure this gives them reasons to feel proud

@Brandon9000,
On August 8, 2013, a public sale was scheduled by the school to sell its curricula, books, teacher resources, office supplies, school supplies, toys bulletin board materials and the pickled brains of its administrators and science teachers.

The last item is expected to bring high prices from scientists wanting to study right wing nut cases' brains.

@bobsal u1553115,
Well, it is a christian school after all. It's not very surprising that they would push their own agenda.
