Why It Matters! - What Science Really Is
One of the things that evolutionists consistently do is to distort the meaning of words. The word that they probably distort the most is the word science. The word itself means knowledge, but it is used to describe a particular way of discovering facts about the natural world.
“Even if all the data points to an intelligent designer such an hypothesis is excluded from science, because it is not naturalistic”. Dr. Scott Todd, Kansas State University.
Evolutionists such as Scott Todd want to define science as atheism. Despite what evolutionists like Todd would like us to believe, true science, as opposed to evolutionist storytelling, is the search for truth, no matter where it may lead. One of the reasons that most of the truly great scientists have been Christians is because they knew that the Author of the truth in nature will never contradict the truth in His Word, the Bible. From Johannes Kepler, the father of modern astronomy, to Louis Pasteur, the father of modern medicine, the greatest scientists were people who sought truth knowing that they were, in Kepler’s words, “thinking God’s thoughts after Him”. True scientists are never afraid of where the truth will lead them.
A battle for the soul of science education and an example of how Creationists are winning is happening at the Texas State Board of Education over three words in the state standards on the teaching about evolutionism. Those three words are “strengths and weaknesses”. At first glance it might not seem such a big deal, but evolutionists know better and that is why they are fighting it tooth and nail against these words. Evolutionists know that if it is ever admitted in a classroom that there might be weaknesses in the evolutionist story, then the floodgates will be opened and evolutionism will be exposed for the nonsense that
it really is. This story was reported in both a story and an editorial in the New York Times and is a perfect example of the kind of slanted reporting talked of in the movie “Expelled, No Intelligence Allowed”. In the movie both reporters and teachers tell how they were pressured by the evolutionist establishment to present only one side of the conflict and how when they gave a balanced presentation of the issue, they were punished. In both the story and editorial the writers were simply parroting evolutionist propaganda, without ever explaining why free examination of an issue, such as evolutionism, is bad for true science.
While the battle in Texas is going on a small victory for truth occurred in Louisiana when in June a bill was signed into law by Governor Jimdal encouraging “critical thinking” about such topics as evolutionism and global warming. Not surprisingly the evolutionists were unanimous in their condemnation of any kind of critical thinking about their religion of evolutionism.
Whatever the eventual outcome of the battles over the teaching of evolutionism in Texas and Louisiana is, the fact that there is a battle going on over it is a victory for those who seek to have the truth as the ultimate goal in education. True science education is teaching how to search for the truth, not simply parrot evolutionist slogans.
While Creationists never need to be concerned with what true science discovers, evolutionists are constantly scurrying around having to shore up their story, as well as having to intimidate into silence those whose agenda is simply searching for the truth. Dealing with science is not a day-to-day concern for most people, but using the high regard that most people have for science has been a very effective strategy for evolutionists in promoting their religion. We do not need to become experts on all aspects of science, but it is a good idea to be able to distinguish between true science and evolutionist fairytales.
