Summary: The affect that evolution has had on America is hair raising! Virtually every area of thinking has been negatively affected by it’s lies and deception!
Evolution’s Deception: Making a Monkey of Man, Pt. 3
“Evolution’s Affect On Our Society”
Evolution is a fulfillment of these verses!
1. It Dictates Our System of Education.
According to one court case “McLean vs. Arkansas Board of Education”, coverage of evolution in Secondary School Biology Textbooks from 1900 to 1980 showed evolution receives an average of 14,o55 words in each of eight major biology textbooks published between 1980 and 1982, and seven devoted at least 11,000 words to evolution. By contrast …the theory of creation receives no more than a paragraph in one of roughly 30 textbooks for public school biology…”
It was voted by the Associated Press to be the top story of 1999: the Kansas Board of Education’s decision to de-emphasize some aspects of the teaching of evolution in Kansas’ schools set off a firestorm of controversy.
Here is their demand in writing, which they sent to every school authority in the land:
"A sponsoring committee headed by Bette Chambers has secured the signatures of 179 scientists, educators, and religious figures to a statement which they say is being sent to all major school districts in the United States. The statement, along with several articles attacking the concept of creation, was published in the January / February 1999 issue of The Humanist, published for the American Humanist Association and the American Ethical Union.
The statement reads:
We, the undersigned, call upon all local school boards, manufacturers of textbooks and teaching materials, elementary and secondary teachers of biological science, concerned citizens, and educational agencies to do the following:
—Resist and oppose measures currently before several state legislatures that would require creationist views of origins be given equal treatment and emphasis in public-school biology classes and test materials.
—Reject the concept, currently being put forth by certain religious and creationist pressure groups, that alleges that evolution is itself a tenet of a religion of `secular humanism,’ and as such is unsuitable for inclusion in the public-school science curriculum.
—Give vigorous support and aid to those classroom teachers who present the subject matter of evolution fairly and who often encounter community opposition."— Humanist statement, The Humanist, January-February, 1977.
Here’s news for every science teacher in America, It’s legal for you to teach creation as an alternative to evolution! The 1st Amendment allows it! But creation science teachers have pretty much given up on public school because of the intimidation and ridicule received on campus around the country!
This problem extends beyond the schools to the place of employment:
Colin Patterson in "An Engineer Looks at the Creationist Movement, "Were biologists, geologists, or paleontologists to endorse publicly a pseudoscience such as creationism, their chances of achieving or retaining prestigious academic positions would be greatly undermined, as would their chances for high office in professional societies. Only in Bible colleges, seminaries, and creationist ministries can the latter succeed.”
