Okay, so the complexity of the world indicates a designer, but the designer doesn't have to be complex enough to actually design it, it just happens by what...instinct?

The main block at my old secondary school is rectangular as were most of the other buildings. The only round building was the library. If all schools were secular the teacher wouldn't be able to tell you go stand in the corner, for being naughty.

In the U.S. public schools are secular. There is no praying or discussion of religion in schools funded by the state.

I don't think religion has a place in school or government.

Totally concur with you, Ma'am.

Also, I must confess I was always under the impression that schools in the US were drowning in religion; so it is good to know that your public schools are not like this at all. :)

They're actually pretty strict on it. They love their First Amendment...although not enough to put them off having 'In God We Trust' on their money. It's odd how religion in schools seems to completely differ to religion in the wider community, in both the USA and the UK.
