Should an effort be made to explain that evolution is just a theory when teaching it in public school? Should teachers explain the racist philosophical views of Darwin and his advocates? How about telling them that the full title of Darwin's book, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, includes The Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life?
Could it just be possible that teaching evolution as fact, that students come from animals and without purpose, be responsible in any way for the increase of crime and other social problems, such as rape, that we're seeing amongst our youth today?
Could teaching the 'theory' of creation, that each person is created uniquely with and for a purpose, at least with equal time in the classroom, engender a sense of dignity, justice and a greater value for human life in them?
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that teaching young people that everything about them, including their emotions, aspirations and sense of worth are simply the behavior of nerve cells, would have less than a favorable impact on them.
For instance, as pointed out by Gary DeMar in his editorial, "The Dark Side of Evolution," two evolutionists, writing in the Academy of Science magazine, The Sciences, stated, "Rape is a 'natural, biological' phenomenon, springing from men's evolutionary urge to reproduce." Couple this with the over-the-edge sex-ed now being taught in schools, should we be surprised when we hear that middle school kids are having sex, even in the classroom?
By teaching students Darwin's theory of evolution on race, that race is nothing more than a part of the evolutionary process, with blacks at the bottom and whites at the top, could it be possible to encourage, even incite, some to white supremacy actions or 'hate crimes' that are on the rise by young people today?
For instance, T. H. Huxley, a 'disciple' of Darwin, wrote, "It may be quite true that some negroes are better than some white men, but no rational man, cognizant of the facts, believes that the average negro is the equal, still less the superior, of the average white man....The highest places in the hierarchy of civilization will assuredly not be within the reach of our dusky cousins...."
It doesn't stop with Darwin. Hitler accepted, and thus promoted, Darwin's theory of stronger and weaker races. Sir Arthur Keith wrote: "The German Führer, as I have consistently maintained, is an evolutionist; he has consciously sought to make the practice of Germany conform to the theory of evolution."
Lenin used evolution to brainwash the Soviet Union into a 'scientific atheism.' Mao, responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of people, had two favorite books, one by Darwin and the other by Huxley. And Nietzsche, who declared to the world 'God is dead,' believed in the breeding of a master race.
On the one hand students are taught diversity in schools, on the other, evolution. It's time to stop messing with our kid's minds!
And it's time to tell them like it is.
If you're not outraged about this, you're not paying attention.
Gunga; I don't believe in evolution either. But don't blame the evolutionists for the world's ills. Power hungry clergy have an ocean of spilled blood to account for.

Between the end of the Napoleanic wars and 1913, something like a hundred years had gone by without a major war in Europe. And then, in a space of fifty or sixty years, you get a couple of hundred million people killed in worldwide wars and various purges and pogroms caused by nationalism, out-of-control arms races, and ideologies (communism and naziism) all of which are ultimately derived from this idea of "survival of the fittest" being the only moral law in nature, and of viewing your fellow man as a meat byproduct of random processes instead of as a fellow child of God.
Christianity and its priests never caused bloodshed and grief on that sort of a scale.
Smile when you say that, mister.
For these men know that once ignorance is put aside, that wonderment would be taken away which is the only means by which their authority is preserved.
Only in convents can humanity sink so low. (AND) Mankind will never be truly free until the last king has been strangled with the entrails of the last priest.
The first divine was the first rogue who met the first fool. (AND) Our priests are not what simple folk suppose, their learning is our credulity.
By this I observed that there is a priestcraft even amongst the most blinded, ignorant pagans of the world, and the policy of making a secret religion, in order to preserve the veneration of the people in the clergy, is not only to be found in the Roman, but perhaps among all religions in the world, even among the most brutish and barbarous savages.
All in general is fat about them, even their intellects not excepted.
Clergyman: A man who undertakes the management of our spiritual affairs as a method of bettering his temporal ones.
What would we say if we read in holy writ of our Lord having blessed the battering-rams and catapults of the legions?
I wholeheartedly agree---I mean immediately after Darwin Published "On the Origin of Species" a long and bloody Civil War broke out in the United States....Damn that Evilution anyway.
