Protecting Evolution Regardless of the Evidence

The latest creation/evolution battle is happening  in Texas. A news report in the New York Times states that:

The latest round in a long-running battle over how evolution should be taught in Texas schools began in earnest Wednesday as the State Board of Education heard impassioned testimony from scientists and social conservatives on revising the science curriculum. . . .
Legislators in six states have considered legislation requiring classrooms to be open to “views about the scientific strengths and weaknesses of Darwinian theory.” The debate here has far-reaching consequences; Texas is one of the nation’s biggest buyers of textbooks, and publishers are reluctant to produce different versions of the same material. Many biologists and teachers said they feared that the board would force textbook publishers to include what skeptics see as weaknesses in Darwin’s theory to sow doubt about science and support the Biblical version of creation.
It’s interesting to note that in education, the academics always want to look at strengths and weaknesses in various theories—except evolution. The secularists don’t even want students to know the problems with evolution. They want to protect it at all costs, as they don’t want to even open the door to the possibility evolution could be incorrect. After  all, that may cause some students to consider the possibility of creation, and that can’t be allowed, now can it?

This article has prompted me to remind you all to ensure you have seen the movie Expelled—a documentary the secularists also don’t want anyone seeing, as they don’t want the public to know how academic freedom is squashed in relation to the origins issue—and how the public is censored from the truth of what is really going on in academia—the protection of evolution at all costs. You can obtain the DVD of Expelled from the AiG online bookstore. If you have never taken the opportunity to get a copy of this powerful documentary, I urge you to do so—and spread it around!

Devotion
Aromatic

(Psalm 45:8) All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.

Reading Scripture in the morning is like walking on a hillside of aromatic plants, aromas get on our clothes, & the smell of them all day reminds all where we were.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying, Ken
