PA Ruling against Intelligent Design Not So Bad

22 01 2006

The Dover, PA ruling against intelligent design might not be such a bad thing as many Christians believe if we look at the issue from a true Christian worldview perspective.

Excerpt: “…a federal judge barred a Pennsylvania public school district from teaching “intelligent design” in biology class, saying the concept is creationism in disguise. U.S. District Judge John E. Jones delivered a stinging attack on the Dover Area School Board, saying it violates the constitutional separation of church and state.”

The myth of separartion of church and state is the issue that angers me most (hence my blog’s name) and indeed a goal I have is to abolish this myth during my lifetime. But I submit that the “intelligent design” push is a quick-fix to a deeper problem that exists today.

Our schools are teaching humanism by only allowing evolution in our science curriculum. Humanism does not recognize God or any other Higher Being. Its entire premise is based on man’s development and intelligence and cannot recognize any deity. Therefore, I am not surprised with the outcome of the Dover school district case. After all, Judge Jones said it was “creationism in disguise.” Does this ruling line up with founders such as Gouverneur Morris, one of the Constitution’s penmen, who said, “Education should teach the precepts of religion and the duties of man toward God.” Of course not.

By promoting intelligent design, we are compromising God’s Word. Teaching good morals is indeed a worthwile cause. But when God is the basis of everything good, and He is removed in order to sell to a seclar audiance, there is no longer a foundation that exists. This will eventually lead people to believe that they can reach Heaven by “doing good things.” Instead people need to be taught that “God said it! I believe it! And that settles it!”

Intelligent design is “good evolution.” We are quick to credit men’s writings, but we want to remove all the “God said’s” in order to plug a leak. When instead, we need to pray, first and foremost. Secondly, we need to elect representatives who will return to ruling according to the way the founders intended and not allow activist socialists to teach humanism in our schools.

I will be interviewing Representative of Alabama, Robert Aderholdt soon on the bill he is sponsoring called the Constitution Restoration Act, which would put issues like this, abortion, religious liberty, etc…back where they belong, in the State Courts, and out ot he hands of the Federal Courts.

I like the post…Good points!

Intelligent design isn’t “good evolution” although in it’s studies they consider natural causes, but once the subject (in this case a cell) it fits into the ID filter than it’s ruled out. ID is a compliment to creationism, but by no means does it replace it.

I find it funny how some humanists will argue we can’t teach creationism because people have different views on origins, but teaching a godless view on origins is accomplishing the same thing they argued against for creationism…lol…Many other humanists are using it to attack the Christian faith…Evolution has so many holes, it tries to fill gaps, then creates more gaps in the endless cycle.

I find it funny that evolutionists/humanists insist that life began with one cell but deny that life also begins with one cell in the womb.
