Landrum, SC (WHNS) -- An Upstate private school's fourth grade science quiz is blowing up online and the test has gone global because it's based on the Bible.
Ever since the science quiz went viral, Blue Ridge Christian Academy has been getting blasted and praised for their views about creation and evolution. The attention came from a few questions like, "Whom should be always trust" and "What is the history book of the Universe."
School administrators said they didn't see anything wrong with it because they teach from a biblical world view with all subjects.
"I was very surprised with the hoopla and attention it was getting," said Joy Hartsell, BRCA math teacher and school board president.
"We make sure students understand what the theory said and make sure they understand what the Bible said," said BRCA Administrator Diana Baker.
Baker told us they will not discipline that teacher because they feel she did nothing wrong. The private school also told FOX Carolina they aren't sure who put this quiz out there, but they feel this is all God's work and it will all work out for the good.
