Defending teacher who 'dared to question' evolution
The Rutherford Institute is preparing to appeal a recent court decision against an Ohio science teacher who tried to teach his student to think critically about evolution.
"The main charge here is that he referred to some materials outside the classroom. One of them was the Ben Stein movie [Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed]. Many people have seen that film that critiques evolution," Whitehead explains. "But he also referred children to movies that upheld the theory of evolution, so he did both sides of it, and he just raised questions about the theory of evolution, which I think any good teacher would do because there are problems."
He points out that evolution is only a theory, but it is often taught as fact....
The article references Ben Stein's movie Expelled, No Intelligence Allowed.
Let me be clear even though Ben Stein is Jewish and not a Christian his honest look into the suppression of the Truth of Creation by Atheistic Evolutionists makes his movie Expelled one of benefit to us as believers in a very Jewish Messiah that I very much recommend Christians watch.
"Neither creation nor evolution is directly observable, testable, repeatable, or falsifiable. Each is based on certain philosophical assumptions about how the earth began. Naturalistic evolution assumes that there was no God, and biblical creation assumes that there was a God who created everything in the universe. Starting from two opposite presuppositions and looking at the same evidence, the explanations of the history of the universe are very different. The argument is not over the evidenceâ€”the evidence is the sameâ€”it is over the way the evidence should be interpreted." (answersingenesis.org)
Hebrews 11:3 "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear."
"If the universe is a product of random chance or a group of gods that interfere in the universe, there is really no reason to expect order in nature. Many of the founders of the principle scientific fields, such as Bacon, Galileo, Kepler, and Newton, were believers in a recently created earth. The idea that science cannot accept a creationist perspective is a denial of scientific history." (answersingenesis.org)
