Call for UK to Ban Creation in Schools—Saying It Is “Dangerous”

by on

Various news items in the UK appeared this week reporting the following (the paragraph below is taken from the UK’s Daily Mail newspaper):

The teaching of creationism should be outlawed in school  science lessons, a group of leading scientists have said.  And the curriculum should be changed to ensure evolution is taught from when children start school, according to academics including Sir David Attenborough and Professor Richard Dawkins.  Those behind the call for ‘evolution not creationism’ say teaching that God created the world is dangerous and must be prevented by law.
Richard Dawkins is a well-known atheist. And like other atheists, he wants to impose his anti-God religion on the children of the world. Of course, he wants them taught evolution from the beginning of school when they are very young. He knows that if you can indoctrinate the kids from such a young age, you will capture many of their hearts and minds for atheism.

Christians like ourselves have no fear of the academic freedom to allow teachers the ability to teach about different views of origins. Atheists like Dawkins know they can’t allow kids to hear the evidence against evolution and that the evidence is consistent with creation, as these young people will easily see how evolution is a belief that is inconsistent overall with operational (observational) science. That’s why these atheists have to campaign to legislate evolution as fact!

And why are they so emotional about this? Why do they fight so hard against God? Well, the Bible tells us in Romans 1.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse. (Romans 1:18–20).
Because they know there is a God—as it is evident from around them and written on their hearts—they “beat their chests” so to speak and “cover their ears with their hands,” doing all they can to suppress the very truth that is “clearly seen.”

The more we see such anti-Christian situations as that described in this newspaper article, the more it attests to the fact that God is! If there was no God, there would be no spiritual battle, and Dawkins and his friends would not care what people believed! But because the Bible is true, and each person is accountable to the God of creation, Dawkins and his atheist friends work as hard as they can to “suppress the truth.”

You can read the entire article on the newspaper’s website.
