‘Education, Not Indoctrination’: Atheists Protest Texas Homeschool Convention as Promised

A small group of atheists protested a homeschooling convention as promised earlier this year, largely due to the presence of a prominent Creation speaker who was scheduled to attend the event.

On Saturday, speaker Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis posted a number of photographs on his Facebook page of the atheists that were protesting the teaching of Creation to homeschoolers at the Texas homeschooling event as planned.

“[A] handful are atheists are protesting me speaking at the Texas homeschool conference at The Woodlands (Houston) where thousands of adults and kids have been attending,” he wrote. “They are holding up signs showing clearly they do not understand science.”

“Education, not indoctrination,” “Love your kids with real science,” and “23% of jobs in Houston require proficiency in math and science. Don’t handicap your kids with Creationism,” some of the signs read. ...

Good point, bjohnston...we think we are in miserable shape now, and on a slippery slope, which we are, for sure, but just imagine a fully Godless, spirit less world which believed that at first there was nothing, and then it exploded, and that we simply evolved from the apes that nothingness, and non-intelligence just happened to create.
Amazing what people will put their faith in.

Mike,
Cockroachism, huh? totally agree!!!!

Think how terrible the world would be if we were all evolutionists! Or, even if there were no saved people living. Gods Spirit would not be here, people would be selfish and that would be a miserable existence! If you think about it, if we were all evolutionists, we would become a society that lives on feelings and what is best for ME and what I want and what I feel. I can't even imagine!

let's not let the evolutionists divert attention. when one says there is no god, they have no one limiting their vain imaginations, and that's why many are drawn to this spiritless, heartless philosophy (why would you be drawn to a system that tells you that you have the value of a fly or a cockroach otherwise?)....

Perhaps athiests unconsciously recognize athiesm as synonymous with cockroachism. If there isn't such a word, there should be.

most of the difficulties Christians face in the hard sciences, once they get into them, are moral conflicts.... that is, experimentation for patents and profits, while study of nature and advancing those things that cannot be used for warfare, or synthesized and bottled do not get the funding. how many med students have faced a mandatory abortion before graduating?

let's not let the evolutionists divert attention. when one says there is no god, they have no one limiting their vain imaginations, and that's why many are drawn to this spiritless, heartless philosophy (why would you be drawn to a system that tells you that you have the value of a fly or a cockroach otherwise?).... we know God has given us nature to see His existence, the magnificence in the heavens declare His glory, but faith comes with a cost, we cannot just go our own way anymore.... thanks be to Christ who saves us and gives us a new way.

If a person cannot look at their body and say like David," How fearfully and wonderfully man was made,oh Lord!" And all the works of your Hands. They don't want to believe because if there is a Divine Creator (there is) then that means there is a judgement time for sins committed..a heaven and hell..and a time of reckoning(which is coming) and a time when every knee shall bow before our Lord and King, Jesus Christ..every eye shall behold Him..every tongue confess.that He is Lord! So even if you refuse to bow your knee and confess Him as Lord today does nothing to change the truth..so don't let pride convince you other wise.

This is rather amazing statement: d “23% of jobs in Houston require proficiency in math and science. Don’t handicap your kids with Creationism,” from the article by the way. What does Creationism or Evolution... have to with math or science? Only one "scientific" field I can think of off hand which effected by this argument is biology. Astronomy isn't in most ways isn't even effected. Of course the kids will be handicapped if they are given the full truth about Creation, when one realizes The Scientific Case Against Evolution.

Thankfully in this country, homeschooling is protected by laws--Links To State Laws & Organizations For Homeschoolers.

evolution is an unprovable assumption to try to counteract the evidence around them that God breathed life into them and therefore they were.

science cannot be understood without their relationship to creation around them. divorced from their place in the cycle of life, as absent observers, they are left swimming in the sea of their intellect, a very lonely place indeed.

the Creator that they deny can be found through right relationship with His Son Jesus Christ, who is documented in the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and whispered of every time we mention what year it is (changing acronyms does not change the fact that our calendar continues to count the years since His death and resurrection.)

when the design of nature is allowed to play out (modernists like to destroy this), and we see how each plant and animal rely on each other, we can see that God is not only the God of nature, but of relationship -- this is life.

the reason we see death is because of sin, that came through the first two human beings. to ignore death is a great hindrance because in it we find the need for a Messiah met in Jesus Christ.

evolutionists see death as a means for life, accident as the means for design and beauty, they have no wisdom.

It's not enough for them to have influence in the public schools, they want to control the homeschoolers too? That's ridiculous. Even though atheism is taught in the schools very few people are atheists. Do they really think they can convince homeschoolers into atheism? I doubt it!
