Here’s another jewel from Dinesh D’Souza’s book What’s So Great About Christianity?
“Surveys show that the vast majority of young people in America today are scientifically illiterate, widely ignorant of all aspects of science. How many high school graduates could tell you the meaning of Einsteins’s famous equation? Lots of young people don’t have a clue about photosynthesis or Boyle’s Law. So why isn’t there a political movement to fight for the teaching of photosynthesis? Why isn’t the ACLU filing lawsuits on behalf of Boyle’s Law?
. . . .
This is why we have Darwinism but not Keplerism; we encounter Darwinists but no one describes thimself as an Einsteinian. Darwinism has become an ideology.
. . . .
The well-organized movement to promote Darwinism and exclude alternatives is part of a larger educational project in today’s public schools. I’ll let the champions of this project describe it in their own words. ‘Faith is one of the world’s great evils, comparable to the small-pox virus but harder to eradicate’ writes Richard Dawkins. ‘Religion is capable of driving people to such dangerous folly that faith seems to me to qualify as a kind of mental illness.’
. . . .
The objective of science education, according to biologist Richard Lewontin, ‘is not to provide the public with knowledge of how far it is to the nearest star and what genes are made of.’ Rather, ‘the problem is to get them to reject irrational and supernatural explanations of the world, the demons that exist only in their imaginations, and to accept a social and intellectual apparatus, science, as the only begetter of truth.’
. . . .
Dawkins asks, ‘How much do we regard children as being the property of their parents? …Should they be free to impose their beliefs on their children? Is there something to be said for society stepping in?’
. . . .
Psychologist Nicholas Humphrey argues in a recent lecture that just as Amnesty International works to liberate politial prisoners around the world, secular teachers and professors should work to free children from the dmaging influence of their parents’ religious beliefs.’ ” (pp. 32 – 36)
Now all this is very wrong. Here we have atheists, pretending to not have a belief, yet they are imposing their beliefs on the rest of society, to the point that they are advocating the taking of our children away from us. D’Souza goes on to quote several sources as describing just how they are separating our children from their parents’ values.
People, please wake up. While we calmly sit in our church pews on Sunday with an increasingly dwindling congregation, they are thinking of ways to increase our demise. Regardless of what you think about Christianity, these atheists are trying to take our children’s minds away from us, effectively breaking the family unit, which has held together society for thousands of years. In the name of “free inquiry” they are squashing debate by using ad-hominem arguments (name calling and intimidation instead of calm reasoning). They set their ideology up as “the only begetter of truth.”
And what bugs me the most is that these atheists sit on their high horse, claiming the moral high ground. But I have yet to see, in any city, an Atheist Memorial Hospital. What have I seen? Baptist Hospital, Methodist Hospital, St. Lukes Hospital, Episcopal Hospital, and on and on. Not one Atheist Hospital. What else have I seen? As documented in the book Darwin Day in America (by John West), atheist ideology has been the source of the deaths of 60 to 80 million people in the last hundred years.
