Science education evolving to counter Christian faith
In February, the Florida Department of Education modified its standards to explicitly require, for the first time, the state’s public schools to teach evolution, calling it “the organizing principle of life science.” Spurred in part by legal rulings against school districts seeking to favor religious versions of natural history, over a dozen other states have also given more emphasis in recent years to what has long been the scientific consensus: that all of the diverse life forms on Earth descended from a common ancestor, through a process of mutation and natural selection, over billions of years.

But in a nation where evangelical Protestantism and other religious traditions stress a literal reading of the biblical description of God’s individually creating each species, students often arrive at school fearing that evolution, and perhaps science itself, is hostile to their faith.

Disneyland's "Primeval World" attraction on its Railroad suggests that Walt "bought" the then-current Darwinist story & chronology of the Earth. To be fair though, there was hardly any challenge to it from the churches back then because they too were thoroughgoing empiricists.

BTW, the attraction illustrates how changeable paleontology is; T-rex is now much more agile, & an asteriod rather than vulcanism is now supposed to have accounted for dinosaurs' extinction. If science had the goods on truth, the story wouldn't change.

Even the notion of extinction is practically untenable, for it's not possible to prove a negative like this. All one can say is, "I've never seen one," or "no one has presented material evidence of a living example."

Ps. 119:99-100 Yes, I have more insight than my teachers, for I am always thinking of your decrees. I am even wiser than my elders, for I have kept your commands. The Christian students who steadfastly cling to the truth of God's Word need not be ashamed.

We should remember that the late Mr. Walt Disney would never have supported the current enterprise that bears his name. It was Mr. E-I-S-N-E-R, who poisoned that fine company. Let me repeat that name for you, it is Eisner, that's E-I-S-N-E-R !!! Get it?

Amen to you both.

I really can't understand what goes through people's minds. Even before I got saved and became a Bible believer, I didn't believe in evolution. If evolution is true, then life has no purpose at all. I pray that the Lord will open their eyes and they will come to the Lord of the universe and get saved.

Disney’sDinosaurDeadly drama&dabs of Darwinism
"The Southern Baptist Convention in the United States thus has yet another reason to continue its call to members to boycott Disney products and attractions because of the company’s ongoing anti-Christian and anti-family attitudes and policies."
Disney and fairy tales go hand in hand:
an apt spokesman for the

HaHa! Oh my, the teacher, while giving the Mickey Mouse example, totally ignores that Walt Disney is the creator of the mouse cartoon. It reminded me of the scientist who created the primordial soup to prove how life began. The soup proved unfit for life to develop from it. Perhaps if they would've waited another billion years? In Darwinism only the fittest survive, so that alone discounts evolution because mutations cannot survive. Mr. Campbell says that if you see something you don't understand you have to ask "why" or "how". Evolution cannot answer the "why". And the "how" is still a theory in the theory of evolution. He wrongly believes that evolution is the answer to those questions and the Bible's account of there being a Creator is not. At the heart of his desire to teach evolution is that he is a sinner who must answer to the Judge of the Universe for his sins and he doesn't like that. He doesn't understand that truth will remain truth even if no one believes it. Truth needs no one to believe it to remain truth. He doesn't ask the "why" or the "how" of creation by the Creator.

Is Mickey Mouse the new hope for mankind? If evolution were fact, then why hasn't Mickey become an Elephant by now? What about his half nude sidekick, Donald Duck.

Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

1Ti 6:20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:

I haven't read the article. I just wanted to make a correction concerning the title. It should read: Science education devolving to counter Christian faith.
