*unpopular minority opinion*
I go to a Catholic school, and this is kind of how some tests are set up. It's a test on what the Catholic church teaches (at least at my school), and the Church even teaches that God created the Universe, but it still accepts the Big Bang as valid. The point of religion is different from the point of science. I don't know exactly how ot explain it, inb4 red thumbs for being religious

He's got a point, you know. It's like taking a quiz on Pokemon. One of the questions may ask "Who created the universe?" Yes, the universe was created the Big Bang, but that's not what the question is asking. The answer, despite what occurs in real life or whatever you might personally believe, is still Arceus.

If the school is even halfway decent, there would be a stipulation given of "According to the Catholic Church..." at the beginning of every test/quiz, or at the beginning of the course. Despite personal belief, the fact still remains that the Catholic Faith believes that the universe was created by God, and this is what the question is asking.

And before everyone goes "HURRRR DURRRRR CHRISTIAN-FAG", yes, I believe in the Big Bang and Evolution.

Well, yeah. At the begining of every question which is of religious interpretation, it says that "According to the Church" thing.

Exactly. What happened at my school most of the time is that it had the disclaimer at the beginning or the teacher said it out loud to the class [just so every question wasn't inundated and wordy with the stipulation].

Yeah, in my class thought they do it written because most of the time kids dont listen to spoken directions and stuff. But yeah, its the same thing.

The funny thing is that the Catholic School I went to was more considerate towards personal beliefs than my current college is, which is hilarious seeing as it's a public state school with 25k under-grads.
