Friends, (I had to update this a little, because I wrote it late last night and I found a few typing errors.–j)
William Dembski has nailed it! You should hit his blog for the whole story and for associated comments by readers, but here’s a snippet:
The phrase that jumps out here is “least understood of all scientific theories.” Reality check: the basics of evolutionary theory are not hard to fathom — evolution is not rocket science (presumably Paula Apsell thinks she understands them). Moreover, tax payers have been paying megabucks to have their children indoctrinated in this theory. So perhaps the problem is not that evolutionary theory is poorly understood but that it is sufficiently well understood and disbelieved.”
I think ‘indoctrination’ is the right word here. In fact, I know it is. I’ll show you why below.
Yesterday my fourth grader came home from school and told me all about the lesson he had in ‘global warming’ that day. He then astutely pointed out that the bus driver contributed to global warming on the ride home from school by leaving the lights on in the bus the whole ride home from school. He said she ought to be ashamed of herself. Fourth grade–even he gets it!
Finally, from the world of evolutionary psychology, and Psychology Today, a note about the breasts of women. You’ll love this ladies! I’m not sure if these stories are real or not, but… Here’s what evolutionary psychologists spend their grant money on:
Until very recently, it was a mystery to evolutionary psychology why men prefer women with large breasts, since the size of a woman’s breasts has no relationship to her ability to lactate. But Harvard anthropologist Frank Marlowe contends that larger, and hence heavier, breasts sag more conspicuously with age than do smaller breasts. Thus they make it easier for men to judge a woman’s age (and her reproductive value) by sight-suggesting why men find women with large breasts more attractive.
And I’m sure you’ll love this take on the ‘saggy boobs‘ story. (If you are interested in the original ‘research’ you could click here. Oh, another funny thing these ‘doctors’ tell us is that most suicide bombers are Muslims. They mix this in, about right in the middle, with their theories about saggy breasts.) And we are supposed to trust these people with our children’s education’s. This stuff is just too funny. They want us to consider this as serious research, serious study, and serious reflection on culture. (I always thought there were other reasons for…well, nevermind.)
Friends, my point in noting all this for you is simple: To show that Darwinism is not without its challenges. They continue with their propaganda in the schools because they have to. It’s like cigarette companies who have to sell to kids and get them hooked early: No one in their right mind would start smoking as an adult after reading about all the additives that go in to cigs. It’s the same with Darwinism: Get them hooked early, get them indoctrinated young, then when they are older it will be just too much for them to overcome.
Darwinism is such a joke. We need to let more people know about how our children are not given any choices when it comes to their education. We need to let our children know that Darwinism is a false teaching, a lie, an intellectual fantasy of people who are afraid they will lose their power and their grants.
So we arrive back where we started: Indoctrination. That’s all it is, plain and simple. The rest of it is just hilarious. It’s like Rush Limbaugh says concerning why liberals hate the president, “They cannot stand faith in something larger than the self.” He is right. And so it is with the Darwinists.
