It Is Nice To Be Appreciated By Your Enemies!
There are at least two ways to know whether you are doing a good job in getting the truth out about the fact of Creation and the deceptions of evolutionists. One is to listen to the comments of those who have come to realize the truth of Creation, the other is to read and hear the criticisms of your enemies. In other words how much hate mail do you get? My favorite hate mail was the one that started out DIE PIG DIE. Sometimes the hate mail is against Creationists in general and comes in a superficially more polite form.
Such is the case with an article in the January 2009 edition of the evolutionist magazine Scientific American. In an article titled “The Latest Face of Creationism”, the authors trot out many of the same tired old charges against Creationists, with a couple of new twists. What I found most interesting about the article is their admission that evolutionists have lost the origins battle on its merits and that they have come to the conclusion that their best strategy for maintaining their stranglehold on the nation’s public schools is thru political action and the courts.
The authors mention the cases of Cobb County, Georgia in 2002 and Dover, Pennsylvania in 2005. In both cases the school boards simply called for freedom of inquiry regarding the origins issue, Freedom of inquiry is the last thing evolutionists can abide. As the authors put it, “even if there is no legal right to academic freedom, it is sound educational policy to allow teachers a degree of latitude to teach their subject as they see fit – but there are limits.” Of course those limits start the moment a teacher, scientist, journalist or anyone else in a position of influence voices even the slightest lack of blind faith regarding evolutionism.
It’s nice to be appreciated by your enemies and even though they have written Creationism’s epitaph many times over the last decades. What is heartening in all of this is that the stridency of their denunciations have become more hysterical in direct proportion to the effectiveness of Creationists in disseminating the truth about Creation and deceptions of evolutionists.
