AUSTIN, TX – Democrats in the Texas Senate have blocked the reappointment of a creationist to head the state board that sets standards and policies for Texas public schools.

The 19-11 vote was one vote shy of the two-thirds approval needed to support Gov. Rick Perry’s nomination of Don McLeroy as chairman of the State Board of Education.

The Creationist and the Sociobiologist: Two Stories About Illiberal Education

1992, by Phillip E. Johnson

There is a mad reductionism at work [in the universities]. God is not a proper topic for discussion, but “lesbian politics” is…. In the famous “marketplace of ideas,” where all ideas are equal and where there must be no “value judgments” and therefore no values, certain ideas are simply excluded, and woe to those who espouse them.1

In a liberal culture, it is a great rhetorical advantage to appear in a dispute as the champion of free speech against the forces of repression. The left has held this advantage for a long time. The student revolt of the 1960s opened with a “Free Speech Movement,” and the bumper sticker that directs us to “Question Authority” implies that the left’s politics is a matter of raising questions rather than imposing answers. Recently, however, academic traditionalists like Dinesh D’Souza have seized the moral high ground by describing a left-imposed atmosphere of “political correctness” in the universities that leads to “illiberal education.” In effect, they have captured the bumper sticker and turned its message around.

Why the Miller–Urey research argues against abiogenesis

August 2004, by Jerry Bergman

Abiogenesis is the theory that under the proper conditions life can arise spontaneously from non-living molecules. One of the most widely cited studies used to support this conclusion is the famous Miller–Urey experiment. Surveys of textbooks find that the Miller–Urey study is the major (or only) research cited to prove abiogenesis. Although widely heralded for decades by the popular press as ‘proving’ that life originated on the early earth entirely under natural conditions, we now realize the experiment actually provided compelling evidence for the opposite conclusion. It is now recognized that this set of experiments has done more to show that abiogenesis on Earth is not possible than to indicate how it could be possible. This paper reviews some of the many problems with this research, which attempted to demonstrate a feasible method of abiogenesis on the early earth.

The Miller-Urey Experiement Natural or Unnatural?
science, evolution, creation, creationism

We’re told that life on Earth formed first with no oxygen (02), but that this early life then produced the oxygen required for life as we know it today. Does the Miller-Urey experiment offer a “natural” explanation for the beginnings of life? Take a look and decide for yourself:

Evidence for a Young Earth
science, creation, creationism, young earth, research

Contrary to what we have been told over and over again by the evolution-believing mass media, the “scientific” establishment, and old-Earth (i.e. slow) Creationists (who don’t want God to get too much glory), there are, in fact, numerous geophysical and astronomical clocks which point to a young age for the earth, solar system, and universe. In fact, such young-earth measuring rods are in the majority. But because the scientific establishment and the mass media are biased in favor of evolution, and against the Creator, and because evolution requires an old earth in order to appear plausible, the public at large is rarely informed of the mounting evidence that contradicts the old earth dogma of evolution.
