THE SCIENCE OF THE FUTURE – CONTROL THE KIDS & CONTROL THE WORLD

THE SCIENCE OF THE FUTURE – CONTROL THE KIDS & CONTROL THE WORLD

 

 

There is a lot of evidence that tells us plainly that man walked with dinosaurs. The Bible (Word of God) has many eyewitness accounts. One case in point is when Job seen a creature that God called Behemoth and even states that the creature was created the same time man (Adam) was created. Job 40:15a says, “Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee”. (Dale Stuckwish)

 

“The belief that the world was created yesterday seems to hold great appeal to those born at that time.” (Gary Malone, Christopher Hitchens and His Critics: Terror, Iraq, and the Left)

 

EVOLUTIONIn 2010, the Texas State Board of Education adopted highly controversial new standards for school social studies textbooks emphasizing the Christian influences of the Founding Fathers. The changes were so egregious as to prompt the leading text-book adoption state of California to pass a Bill describing the Texas curriculum changes as ““a sharp departure from widely accepted historical teachings” and “a threat to the apolitical nature of public school governance and academic content standards in California,” and to call for their Board of Education to “screen state curricula for any of the new standards adopted in Texas.”

Well…Texas is at it again. At least six Creationist/Intelligent Design proponents have been asked to participate in the review of their high school biology textbooks which will be adopted in November. It’s important to note that with budget cuts and a financially embattled public school system these textbooks, once adopted could remain in high school classrooms for as long as ten years.

It is also important to mention that Texas is the second largest purchaser of public school textbooks next to California. Consequently, the adoptions made in Texas are often those which become most prolifically accepted throughout the United   States.

In actuality, there were to be 28 reviewers – only a dozen have shown up. Since their discussions and deliberations are held behind closed does away from public view, concerned parents, patrons, and educators will not know of the changes until the decisions are final.

The TFN Insider has provided us with a list of the known creationism/intelligent design proponents who are in attendance:

 

  • Raymond BohlinRaymond      Bohlin is vice      president of vision outreach for Probe Ministries in Plano      and a research      fellow for the Seattle-based Discovery Institute. The Discovery      Institute promotes the pseudoscientific concept “intelligent design” over      evolution. Founded in 1973, Probe works “to present the Gospel to      communities, nationally and internationally, by providing life-long      opportunities to integrate faith and learning through balanced, biblically      based scholarship.” Bohlin has a doctorate in molecular and cell biology      from the University of Texas      at Dallas, making him a star      performer for anti-evolution groups. He is listed as a “Darwin Skeptic” on the Creation Science Hall of Fame      website. Probe and the Creation Science Hall of Fame promote a      fundamentalist, literal interpretation of the Bible’s creation story. We      know that Bohlin is in Austin      this week to participate in the biology review panel meetings.
  • Walter BradleyWalter      Bradley is a retired Baylor       University professor of engineering      who coauthored a book, The Mystery of Life’s Origins in      1984, that essentially launched the “intelligent design” movement.      “Intelligent design” suggests a scientific basis for creationism      (creationism dressed up in a lab coat). Bradley, founding fellow of the      Discovery Institute’s Center for the Renewal of Science and      Culture, is also listed as a “Darwin Skeptic” on the Creation Science      Hall of Fame website. He is participating in the biology review panel      meetings this week.
  • Daniel RomoDaniel      Romo is a chemistry professor at Texas       A&MUniversity      and is listed as a “Darwin Skeptic” on the Creation Science Hall of Fame      website. We don’t know yet whether Romo made it to Austin      for the biology review panel meetings.
  • Ide      Trotter is a longtime standard-bearer for the creationist      movement in Texas, both as a      source of      funding and as a spokesperson for the absurdly named creationist group      Texans      for Better Science Education. Trotter, listed as a “Darwin Skeptic” on      the Creation Science Hall of Fame website, is a veteran of the evolution      wars at the SBOE and is participating the biology review panel meetings      this week. He testified before the board during the 2003 biology textbook      adoption and again in 2009 during the science curriculum adoption. In both      instances, Trotter advocated including scientifically discredited      “weaknesses” of evolution in Texas      science classrooms. Trotter, who has a doctorate in chemical engineering,      runs his own investment management company and served as dean of business      and professor of finance at Dallas       Baptist University.      He claims that major scientific discoveries over last century have actually      made      evolutionary science harder to defend:

“The ball is rolling and it’s going downhill. There are not enough forces on the side of Darwinism to keep pushing it back uphill forever.”

“…These are all well-known scientific problems with modern evolutionary theory, and they do not exhaust the list. The entire list is a very long one.”

White went on in his testimony to insist that teaching the mainstream scientific consensus concerning evolution without also presenting its alleged “weaknesses” amounted to forcing religious dogma on students. We don’t know whether White is participating in the review panels this week.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t bode well, not only for the future of Texas young people, but for the future of students across the country. It signals the inroads that are being made by Dominionists into the public education arena. Once they can circumvent the separation of church and state, and indoctrinate our children into their worldview, they believe they will control the world.
