We’ve written a few times recently about some items we’ve encountered in a fringe publication calling itself Right Side News. The last occasion was here: Global Warming & Creationism. That publication may not be the mother lode of kookiness, but it’s certainly a rich source of that material.
Today we present some excerpts from It Truiy Is All In The World View, which appears — where else? — in Right Side News. The author is Lynn Stuter, whose work usually appears at NewsWithViews. Presumably this is her breakout opportunity to hit the big time of kookdom.
Lynn’s article is not only a defense of creationism, it’s also a raving anti-Obama piece. Your Curmudgeon rarely has anything good to say about Obama, but we try to be rational in our opposition. This article, on the other hand, goes over the edge in several different directions. You’ll see what we mean. The bold font was added by us:
As the State of the Union address having been delivered up by the resident in the White House, usurper to the Oval Office … . But a lot of good columns have been written since Also Known As (AKA) Obama stood before Congress with Jack-in-the-Box Pelosi popping up and down behind him on cue …
That AKA was angry that his Marxist agenda is being opposed by a growing number of the American people was apparent. That he hasn’t gotten the message that the American people want nothing to do with his Marxist agenda was also apparent.
History will undoubtedly show that AKA was not eligible to the office of president, was not the legitimate POTUS, but that the damage inflicted by his Marxist anti-American agenda will take generations, if even then, to reverse.
Okay, okay. We get the picture. Let’s skip that stuff and get to the creationism:
Government schools are teaching science based on the theory of evolution. A theory is an unproven supposition or hypothesis; a matter of conjecture.
The theory of evolution believes that species evolved even though there has been no definitive proof presented that such is the case. Darwin was an evolutionist. Evolution is a central tenant of the religion of humanism. Humanists believe that man evolved even though the “missing link” between man and ape has never materialized and, since the advent of DNA testing, the theory of the missing link has been generally discredited.
This is the writing of a deeply insightful mind. Keep in mind that “the religion of humanism” is her great evil, and Darwin was a follower of that satanic creed. We continue:
Creationism is another theory, also unproven, that God created the Heavens and all therein, Earth and all upon it. The Bible tells us that God is the one true God; that His word is irrefutable; His word is the first and the last.
Are you following this? Everything unproven is a theory. Good, huh? Here’s more:
In order for the government schools to meet the requirements of the First Amendment, they must not only offer science based on the theory of evolution but also the theory of creationism. Unless they do, they are unconstitutional.
The author is not only an expert in the philosophy of science, but she’s also a constitutional scholar. Moving along:
But Creationism is absurd? Says who? Says you? And you know how? But you believe in evolution? That’s your humanist world view or religion speaking. Is evolution more viable than Creationism? No.
In Lynn’s mind, that’s how it is. Evolution and creationism are just two worldviews, neither of which is more viable than the other. Reality is totally optional.
Want more from this brilliant writer? Sure you do. But we’ll skip over her ravings about the differences between “humanism” and Christianity. We’re told that Marx, Stalin, Lenin, Mussolini, and Hitler all embraced the former (Darwin too), and the Founding Fathers the were motivated by the latter.
We’ll also skip Lynn’s opposition to government-run schools — we don’t like them either, but it’s up to the states to make those decisions. Lynn, however, has a special reason for opposing government schools:
Just as Christianity as the world view of education violated the First Amendment so does humanism/New Age. …
This is why Christianity is taboo in the classroom, but children are immersed in pagan ritualism and New Age spiritualism in the form of guided fantasy/guided visualization, dream catchers, the worship of animals (Indian spirituality), chants around candles, radical environmentalism, etc. This is also why fits are thrown at the mere mention of Creationism, Christ, Christmas, Easter, etc.
Yes, in the author’s mind, that’s why we’ve got such a mess on our hands. What’s the solution? Here it comes:
If we want to remain a free people, the only way to do that is to govern ourselves and control ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God. The alternative is the one presented by AKA [Obama] and his elitist comrades …
Ah, so it’s either theocracy — including creationism, of course — or else it’s Obama. That’s the stark choice we face. Here’s the end of this amazing article:
Will we listen? Will we learn from the past; from what Hitler, Stalin, Lenin and Mussolini inflicted on the world and the people they sought to control? Or will we have to repeat their warped philosophy, religion, world view to learn? How many generations of our progeny are we willing to commit to oppression?
It truly is all in our world view.
What can we add? Only this: Were we to meet the author, the most polite thing we could say to her would be: “Your thoughts are celestial, my dear — they come from Uranus.”
