Bible Math Textbook

From the humor category, Harper's Readings has some excerpts from this Biblical Precalculus textbook for youths in private Christian Schools, published by that center of academic excellence, Bob Jones University:

A line can be described either by its slope (a ratio) or by its inclination (an angle). These terms describe the deviation from the horizontal, but the word inclination also has a nonmathematical meaning. Without Christ, man is inclined to sin. The Word of God should shape our attitudes (inclinations).

One can only imagine what the tests must be like.....

Hahahaha, that's just so funny! I wonder how they introduce sine (looks like sin) or standard deviation (atheists are deviants).
