New Louisiana Law Allows ‘Open Discussion’ on Creation
Evolutionists are up in arms over a bill signed into law by Louisiana Governor, Bobby Jindal. Called the Louisiana Science Education Bill, it passed the state legislature unanimously and creates a level playing field in the discussion of the origin of life and other controversial subjects in the state school system. The New York Times screamed: “retrograde!” and “trojan horse,” even though the bill simply calls for a school environment allowing “open discussion” and “critical thinking” on “controversial scientific subjects.”
The bill does not mention intelligent design or creationism and “clearly restricts any intent to promote a religious doctrine,” according to Townhall.com. It is written broadly enough to include other subjects beside evolution, such as cloning, global warming and other debatable topics. Local schools are now free to introduce reading material presenting views other than the politically correct version of the day.
Prior to Jindal’s signing the law, the Times tried ridicule, insults, and untruths to pressure the governor. It even belittled his education: “As a biology major at Brown University, Mr. Jindal must know that evolution is the unchallenged central organizing principle of modern biology.” On the contrary, this background probably went a long way in helping him understand how little evidence supports the evolutionary theory.
No longer is evolution an “unchallenged” principle. The Creation Research Society is just one organization with over 600 members with at least a master’s degree in a recognized area of science. As early as 1979, Science Digest reported: “Scientists who utterly reject evolution may be one of our fastest-growing controversial minorities… Many of the scientists supporting this position hold impressive credentials in science.” Even the Korean Association of Creation Research has 150 Ph.D. scientist members and 300 other scientists with master’s degrees.
Discovery Institute in Seattle, Washington, has been one of the most successful organizations promoting intelligent design theory in opposition to evolution’s random mutation idea. It is only one example of many organizations pressing for open discussion on evolution’s weaknesses. A Google search for “intelligent design” delivers over six million hits.
To show the obvious spiritual aspect of this whole business, Townhall.com quotes Dr. William Provine of Cornell University explaining his and Darwin’s shared atheistic beliefs: “Let me summarize my views on what modern evolutionary biology tells us loud and clear — and these are basically Darwin’s views. There are no gods, no purposes, and no goal-directed forces of any kind. There is no life after death. When I die, I am absolutely certain that I am going to be dead. That’s the end of me. There is no ultimate foundation for ethics, no ultimate meaning in life, and no free will for humans, either.” There can be no clearer description of the anti-Christ nature of evolution.
“The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.” (Ps. 53:1)
Paul said in 2 Thessalonians 2 that “…for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth.” Can there be any question that evolution is one “strong delusion?” The “natural man” would rather believe this lie than admit there is a God he would have to obey.
Soul winners, we need to attack this delusion with the truth of God’s word. Confused unbelievers need the message in the tracts, Big Daddy, There Go the Dinosaurs, and the newest one, Moving on Up. These are backed up by paperback books: The Vanishing Proofs of Evolution, How Life Began, The Evolution Handbook and minibook, In the Beginning—Soup?
Our kids are being force-fed this lie in the government schools. We need to get the truth into their hands. Their whole world view in life depends on whether they believe in evolution or not.
