Teach real science - not assumptions

Evolutionism relies on assumptions to promote its godless ideas. It is is a belief system that assumes there is a materialistic explanation for everything. In today's public schools, evolutionism is taught as science, but in truth it is a philosophy. And it isn't a new one.

Ancient Greek philosophers such as Thales sought to explain existence by self-creation, postulating that all things evolved from water. Anaximenes thought that all things were but air, while Heraclitus said they were fire. Empedocles decided to explain the universe by saying it evolved by random combinations of elementary particles. All of these philosophies did not stem from science, but from religious thought, thought which sought to limit the power of Deity in the affairs of men and to eliminate accountability after death.

Evolutionism is the same kind of philosophy based on similar assumptions. It is not based on science — not on real, observable evidence — but on a desire to have a materialistic explanation of the universe that replaces God. Do away with God, and you eliminate the need for absolute morals. As for righteousness, you define that yourself. There is no standard but that men make for themselves.

Make no mistake. Evolutionism is being taught as a science so that the foundations of righteousness will be eroded, to be replaced by a view that man is material. And, if man is nothing but material, the "superior" men determine what will be done with the "weaker" or "inferior" ones. With no God to answer to, who steps into his shoes but the oppressor: men like Hitler and Stalin.

So does evolutionism belong in the classroom as a science? Absolutely not. It is a philosophy, and a very bad one, which belongs in the same class as socialism, communism, and secularism.

The plot to destroy religious freedom in America

After the French revolution, France became a secular nation. Secularism is essentially the French state religion. America took note of the destructive forces unleashed in that godless society, and our American founding fathers carefully secured our right to worship God in all places and at all times. They specifically forbade the establishment of any state religion in this nation to avoid persecutions of the past. They separated the powers of the state from interfering with religious worship.

But today, Americans are being told the opposite. A letter Jefferson wrote assured a Baptist minister that the American government would never establish a state religion because of the "wall of separation between church and state." This is being twisted to support those who want to destroy religious freedoms and replace them with a godless state government. Today you will frequently hear evolutionists like Eugenie Scott and organizations like the ACLU state that our founding fathers wanted to protect us from having religious worship in public ... that they wanted a "neutral" territory. The wall of separation between church and state, they say, is the rigorous restriction of any religious activities of any public nature by the American government.

That's not what the founding fathers intended. Here's what they said:

“Let divines and philosophers, statesmen and patriots, unite their endeavors to renovate the age by impressing the minds of men with the importance of educating their little boys and girls, inculcating in the minds of youth the fear and love of the Deity… and leading them in the study and practice of the exalted virtues of the Christian system.” — Samuel Adams

What our founding fathers wanted was a country in which there was no state religion, but the freedom to worship God and answer to him directly. In other words, they wanted us to be free to obey God rather than man, for they knew that only through being governed from the heart by righteousness can people live in peace.

It is the French who built a secularist nation. It is the French who insisted that their schools be free of religion and their public sphere free of evangelism. America saw the bloodiness of that decision and turned away from secularism and toward God.

France was without a God. America was not.

Now, when it is so critical to keep a godly nation, the Constitution is being trampled on by those who have ever desired to keep God out of men's affairs. America is turning away from God by the establishment of the state religion of secularism.

Do we want the state religion of godlessness in America? No. We trust in the Judge of Heaven and Earth to deliver us from the machinations of those who would separate us from Him.
