UK bans creationism as science in schools

31 posts in this topic

I stumbled on this news article recently, and i wanted to know what you guys think of it.

Personally, i think it a big step forward to a better education, but i'm pretty sure some of you will think different :)

How is it a 'step forward' to ban all but ONE theory?  And evolution is just that, a theory.

IMO, They Need To Ban Those Evolutionary Mythologies

 

Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding? Isaiah 29:16

 

As Pagan Religions From Their Public Schools

 

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. Psalms 14:1

I dont see how creationism is any more or less scientific than evolution. Evolution is a theory that science cannot prove. It seems to me if education was what was the actual topic, both "theories" would be available. This is obviously a ploy to erradicate teachings of God and to indoctorinate children with only one "theory" as truth. That is no kind of education. There is a chinese proverb that says a wise man reads both books and then decides. Personaly I dont hold proverbs other than whats in the bible to have authority, but I can see the wisdom in it. Can you?

Why Yes Beloved, Yes I Think I Can

 

Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever. Psalms 119:160

 

To Be Wise Beyond One's Years

 

I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.

 

I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts. Psalms 119:99-100

 

Read The Book

 

These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. Acts 17:11

Personally I Think If One Wishes To Brighten The Minds Of Children

And To Advance The Progress Of Empirical Science

One Would Not Turn Off The Light

 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.

 

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

 

In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:1-5

 

You See

 

But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

 

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

 

For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. 2 Corinthians 4:3-5

 

The British educational system provides funding for many independent- and church-run schools, called free schools and academies. Church schools can become academies in order to take advantage of educational funding. But government money always comes with strings attached. In this case, churches and parent groups that wish to run their own school but utilize public funds, under the new “Church Supplemental Agreement,” must completely relinquish control over the science and religious teaching concerning origins in their schools.

 

In effect, the UK is telling these schools that they can teach any religious doctrine they wish so long as they teach the religious philosophy of evolutionism in the science classroom and exclude student exposure to the scientific flaws in the evolutionary model. And if perchance any form of “creationism” is actually part of a sponsoring church’s doctrine, the school can only discuss this doctrine if they tell children that its doctrinal position is scientifically untenable. https://answersingenesis.org/public-school/uk-state-funded-schools-ban-all-teaching-creation-science/

The students can still read and chose any book they want.

The only thing that is forbidden now is that creationism is teached to be scientificly proven, and that it is involved in science lessons as science.

During lessons like religion or whatever, students still learn what it is, so that they will be able to make their own choice.

I am supporting this, because if the large majority (like 90%) of the scientific world says creationism isn't scientificly correct, then we should not still teach that to children.

If 90% of the people, who really know what they are talking about, say it isn't true, then we might make some changes in what we teach children.

I do not say that people may not believe in it. Only the scientific base falls.

 

And indeed, i can see the wisdom in some of it.

Evolution isn't scientifically proven and it isn't science.  Evolution is by definition a "religion."

=============================================================================

 

Shiloh is 100% spot on, if you disagree, then show "Scientific Evidence to refute....

 

SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE: consists of observations and EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS that serve to support, refute, or modify a scientific hypothesis or theory, when collected and interpreted in accordance with the SCIENTIFIC METHOD.'

 

The Scientific Method:

 

Step 1: Observe a Phenomenon

Step 2: Lit Review

Step 3: Hypothesis

Step 4: TEST/EXPERIMENT

Step 5: Analyze Data

Step 6: Valid/Invalid Hypothesis

Step 7: Report Results

 

Please Validate any aspect of toe?

 

Moreover....

 

if the large majority (like 90%) of the scientific world says creationism isn't scientificly correct, then we should not still teach that to children.

 

This is a Logical Fallacy: Argument to Popularity.

 

 

Furthermore, The Scientific Method is not the only technique to employed to ascertain Truth.  We have Intellect: (Logic, Inductive/Deductive Reasoning, Critical Thinking Skills, and good ole fashioned Common Sense).  Combine these with "Sound" Scientific Principles is a pretty Potent Combination.

 

Case in point:

 

DNA is the Death Knell for evolution or any Naturalistic explanation.

 

The Genetic "CODE" is Software it's Immaterial.  Examine the Chemical Structure...where's the Information?  It's like examining the Motherboard/Microchips/Circuitry in an attempt to divine what Software Program is running....

 

"The meaning of the message will not be found in the physics and chemistry of the paper and ink" -Roger Sperry (neurobiologist and Nobel laureate)

Dr. Sperry is telling the 1st Grader not to expect any messages from his Match Box Cars or Rocks any time soon.

 

The "CODE"/ message transcends the properties of the medium.

 

When you sit down @ the computer do you ever struggle with who/what Programmed it?  :mgdetective:    When you turn it on without any Software loaded what happens?

 

Where does "CODE" (Encrypted) come from?  In the History of Mankind has "Nature" ever sent a Message?  To Source and Send Information requires Sentience and Intelligence:

 

DNA "CODE"/Software------------------Design (Intelligence)--------------------Designer!

 

Can it be Falsified? Yep, only Two:

 

1. Prove that the Genetic CODE is not....."CODE"/Software. OR....

2. Prove that Atoms/Molecules have Sentience and Intelligence.

I think I didn't mention evolution somewhere on this topic, did I?

My topic has nothing to do with evolution(theory).
