Legislating evolution in schools.

Comment on this article

In 2005 a U.S. federal court struck down a motion to teach “intelligent design” along with the federally mandated topic of evolution.  Since then, scientists and educators have developed evolution-based curricula to counter the growing movement questioning the validity of evolutionary theory (Education Week, November 16, 2010).  In 2008, the Council of Europe “condemned all attempts to bring creationism into Europe’s schools” (USA Today, February 11, 2008).

Evolutionary theory assumes that man and the universe developed purely by chance—without a Creator—and any evidence to the contrary is ignored. Although “micro evolution” or adaptation “within” species does occur, no one has ever demonstrated that “macro” or Darwinian evolution can occur—the idea is false.

Biblical prophets warned of leaders who would “cause My people to err by their lies” (Jeremiah 23:32). The Apostle Paul warned that people who “exchanged the truth of God for the lie” because they “did not like to retain God in their knowledge” will incur “the wrath of God” (Romans 1:18-31).  The clock is ticking for our godless societies.
