If allowed, I might make a second character. Possibly for the express purpose of LEGS.

OK, I'll bite. What evidence is there of Creation? Thanks for being the only one so far responding with a genuine question. Carbon 14 in diamonds, well-preserved dinosaur blood cells, radiohalos and spiral galaxies are a few examples. While I won't try to get deep into the evidence for creation as ...

Certainly, Molokai (the merfolk) only technically have one PC (that'd be me). Not sure for others.

And somehow we are the only creatures with a sense of morality. The current thinking is as such: We have morality because we, compared with most other animals, are very intelligent. We developed for a niche where the ability to form complex societal structures, co-operate and think at a higher leve...

Which one? I can find loads, mostly behind a paywall.
Just give an overview on what would be focused on each week/lesson.

Okay Geneviev. Do this for me. Let's say you get your way. Creation and evolution are taught equally. Let's say, to deal with confusion (as if it'd work) that half of the school year is dedicated to each. Biology classes given all throughout high school, let's say that you have to deal with teaching...

It being a pain to get around on land, as far as I'm concerned, adds another layer to Nalas' character, that being that he sees it as important to involve himself in the events occurring on the land, but yearns to be able to go back to the sea if it is ever safe for him to do so. So I think I'd lik...

1. Evangelical, not fundamentalist. Explain the difference please. I imagine there's functionally no difference, but I want to hear it from you so I don't misrepresent your position. 2. Teaching creation in a different class should solve that problem. Either history or religion. Uh, religion. It's ...

Then evolution is still being taught. You don't seem to get that some people have a problem with teaching children lies. It doesn't matter if you teach them accurate information too. Teaching them lies is still teaching them lies. And creationism is a lie. Pure and simple. If I taught in a school t...

Which kind? Be more specific, please. The 6000 year old age bangers are like 1% kf creationists. I mean, functionally, there's little difference. Both believe that god created everything, and that, at the very least, he "guided" evolution. There is no evidence for that, and so it is scien...

Hmm... Now that is an interesting idea. If the Storm Chasers have a presence in the upcoming battle, with their large Merfolk contingent, it's not unfeasible that Nalas might just steal a pair o' legs. Having a set at the beginning of the whole set of events would be a little odd, to be frank, as h...

Why not? It’s interesting. I’d rather hear about creation stories and Bible adventures then evolution. No one really knows how life really began anyways. We only have theories. Shrugs Who cares what you'd "rather" hear about? Science is not tied to the whims of those who study it. I'd rat...

What I am implying is that if we just teaching one side of the discussion, then it will just create an echo chamber of more people having only one opinion. When that opinion is the one that is supported by facts, that's a good thing. Don't advocate for the teaching of blatant falsehoods. The Consti...

I could actually get behind that.
In the interests of fairness, though, only if they force creationism into science classrooms.

If we are going to teach the science of evolution, why not teach the science of creationism ? Not a thing. It will offer the balance which is lacking in a majority of society, and that is the presentation of both sides of a discussion without distortion or strawmen. Balance? Yes, I too want to be t...

Yes you'd be correct they cant move efficiently on land and having some sort of squire works. But what I was thinking since their race is a master of selective breeding I thought that there could exist some sort of biosuit (think like a reverse diving suit) from magical seaweed that could act as a ...

I had thought the same, but the fact that merfolk existed as an appable race made me think you had an idea for including them there. As far as I understand it, and correct me if I'm wrong, it's that merfolk can't move effectively on land, rather than being unable to move at all, right? Thus meaning...
