Check this out. Here is the verbatim text of a letter to the editor in today's
(Sat. Nov. 6) Commercial Appeal:
To The Commerical Appeal:
The overhaul of science education in the United States by a national
commission (The Commerical Appeal, Oct. 25) is a worthy project. But will it
fill the yawning gap created by the refusal of humanistic science to recognize
the hand of God?
Most people in this country believe God exists. And if He does, it is
unthinkable that He has left _no_ evidence of his presence in the natural
world. Why should the godless philosophy of humanism be allowed to dominate
our educational system and attempt to explain everything without Him?
Humanism without God cannot explain how the planets got into their orbits
around the sun. The sun is 98 percent hydrogen and could
have done nothing but belch gas, not the solid planet we live on. And the sun
lacks the residual spin it should now have even if it could have thrown off
its necklace of worlds. There is quite simply no mathematical or physical
explanation for the exquisitely balanced orbit of the moon around the Earth
without God. The Big Bang theory of how the universe began is in serious
disrepair, and there is nothing waiting in the wings to replace it. Nor can
the crippled philosophy of humanism explain the development of life on earth
by a string of trillions of lucky accidents.
Humanism without God cannot provied the vigorous morality which is
absolutely necessary if our society is to survive... Will the national
commission put God back into science education where He belongs?
