From its embrace of evolution to its ridiculous assertions that the world is running out of oil, it is clear to right-thinking people that science often serves one side of the ideological spectrum. Sadly, that side is not the side which right-thinking people embrace.
We see it all the time. Anyone who challenges the hegemony of leftist men of “science” like Richard Dawkins, Stephen Hawking, and Albert Einstein is automatically ridiculed, labeled a fool, or ignored entirely. Such is the fate of those who understand intelligent design, for example.
Clearly, the world was designed. Who could look at a sunset and call it a result of random coincidence? Who looks at the beauty of a meadow full of lilies, without also pondering the awe-inspiring Love of the One who designed both flowers and the Earth upon which they grow, and the Sun that warms them? Who can look at the human heart and not observe that the G-d-shaped hole many of us have carried within it was meant to be filled with the Gospels of Love and Truth?
Sadly, the ignorant exult in their ignorance. The mock us, they assail us, they persecute us at every turn. This despite cogent, rational, sensible explanations for why evolution must be nonsense. As if the Word of the Lord were not enough, though! That’s the part that makes me angriest of all. Scientists will worship the tenets of a dead Englishman who sailed around riding Galapagos turtles, but ask them to read the Scriptures for their evidence and they look at you as if you were the crazy one! The struggle against their idiocy continues, however. True science marches on.
Obviously, funding for “science” is an area in which President Brownback will have to continue the stellar work of George Bush. The potential for harm to the fragile minds of our nation’s children is enormous, should their heads become filled with lies like evolution, or should they not be taught the controversial nature of Heliocentrism.
