OR EVOLUTIONARY THEORIES?
February 14, 2001 was a sad day
in Kansas. On that day the false, deceptive, and God-denying
theory of evolution was restored to the Kansas classrooms.
ago the Kansas Board of Education, by a vote of 6-4, removed
evolution from the science standards as well as the "big-bang"
theory of the beginning of the universe. However, on February
14, by a vote of 7-3, the present Board reinstated evolution
into the school system. According to reports, one present
board member, Carol Rupe, said, "I believe now that we
have science standards that the rest of the world could look
to." Is this a true evaluation?
True education, according to
Gods standards, is the impartation of accurate knowledge
for the good of the student. It is helping the student to
learn the facts of Gods creation. Beyond this, it is
learning all aspects of Gods will and truth so that
the student may love, worship, and serve the Creator of the
universe and Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of mankind. Based
on this foundation, the student will also
learn how to live in love and in peacefulness with all other
people on earth. Anything less than this is a failure to genuinely
educate the child as God would desire.
While education may include references
to false theoriessuch as evolutionthis should
never be the foundation of the educational process.
What greater sin can there be than to deny our own Creator?
(Since we are living in a world that largely denies its Creator,
there does need to be some information given to the student
about why people do reject the creation of God and choose
a Godless theory to take His place.) But evolutionary theories
must be shown to be bankrupt of true science.
Various organizations of scientists
and educators, such as the Creation Research Society, have
produced handsome and well-documented books and monographs
that treat all aspects of the creation-evolution debate. Credible
creation scientists prove conclusively that evolution simply
could not have taken place. Even leading evolutionists admit
that scientific proof of evolution is lacking. With all of
the evidence that evolutionary theory is false, it definitely
should not be taught as a viable explanation for origins and
It is time that American citizens
wake up to the travesty that is occurring in the public schools
of this country. Although many parents have chosen to either
home school their children or place them in private schools,
it is also important that the public secular schools teach
the truth. And what is more basic truth than
the fact that God created all things in the beginning? What
is more fundamental than the fact that our
Creator made man and woman and that humanity did not evolve
from non-life or from microscopic forms of life? What is more
important than the fact that they are made
in the likeness of God and created to glorify and serve Him
eternally? Anything less than this is not true sciencethus
it has no part in the education of our young people!
