After evolutionist James Shapiro claimed he was misquoted by certain members of the Texas state’s school board textbook review committee, even though he wasn’t misquoted; and that those members made a “completely false statement” about novelty being an unsolved problem for evolutionary theory, even though it was Shapiro who misrepresented novelty as well in hand; and that he was “the victim of skillful misquoting for an anti-science purpose,” even though expecting our public schools to teach accurate science is certainly not “anti-science” and it is evolution which consistently makes the anti-science claim that evolution is a fact; and that Read more

Of related note:
Darwinists/Atheists will many times insist that science must include only naturalistic/materialistic explanations, i.e. methodological naturalism. For instance, this quote from a peer-reviewed article urging teachers to ignore any “supernatural” explanations for the Origin Of Life:
Yet contrary to this a-priori, and artificial, limitation that atheists have self-servingingly placed on what we are supposedly allowed to investigate with science, (i.e. methodological naturalism: no matter what the evidence says to the contrary, only materialistic answers are allowed to be considered), it is impossible for us to truly “understand the nature of science” without an appeal to what would be, on a methodological naturalistic view of reality, a “supernatural” explanation for our ability to practice science in the first place. Here are a few notes in that regards:
When scientific conclusions are uniquely fought over in the media, school boards, courts then there is something really special about this subject.
Could it be that evolution is a attack on the bible, God, America, Canada, and mankind??
Could it be that evolution always was used to tell and teach the masses that a new world order should replace the old one?
Could it be just about this?
Not weighing the evidence on origin subjects!
Around the 13:20 minute mark of the following video Pastor Joe Boot comments on the self-defeating nature of the atheistic worldview in regards to absolute truth:
The scientist in the following video, who works within the field of Quantum Mechanics, scientifically confirms Pastor Joe Boots intuition and shows how conservation of energy in the universe requires quantum non-locality to be true in order for the universe to have coherence as a whole.
Moreover, as much as they try to deny it to the contrary, even atheists themselves cannot rid themselves of ‘design thinking’:

‘O God, I am thinking your thoughts after you!’

"To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are his.

Everyone has a bias!
Facts don’t interpret themselves.
Some conclusions are obvious, but many are filtered through the lens of our worldview and affected by our bias.
In the magazine American Laboratory a biochemist wrote this about his children’s schooling: “The child is not presented with evolution as a theory. Subtle statements are made in science texts as early as the second grade (based on my reading of my children’s textbooks). Evolution is presented as reality, not as a concept that can be questioned. The authority of the educational system then compels belief.” Regarding evolutionary teaching in higher grades, he said: “A student is not permitted to hold personal beliefs or to state them: if the student does so, he or she is subjected to ridicule and criticism by the instructor. Often the student risks academic loss because his or her views are not ‘correct’ and the grade is lowered.”
Evolutionary views permeate not only the schools but all areas of science and other fields such as history and philosophy. Books, magazine articles, motion pictures and television programs treat it as an established fact. Often we hear or read phrases such as, ‘When man evolved from the lower animals,’ or, ‘Millions of years ago, when life evolved in the oceans.’ Thus, people are conditioned to accept evolution as a fact, and contrary evidence passes unnoticed.
When leading educators and scientists assert that evolution is a fact, and imply that only the ignorant refuse to believe it, how many laymen are going to contradict them? This weight of authority that is brought to bear on evolution’s behalf is a major reason for its acceptance by large numbers of people.
I think you are absolutely right. I have expressed often the idea that conformism is the main support of neo darwinism, and in general of scientism.
One frequent objection that I have received, while discussing here, is that my beliefs are not shared by the many. That is something I am really proud of. Maybe I am a little cynical, but my faith in human nature is not so overwhelming that I can believe, even for a moment, that consensus is a clue to truth.
That’s why I remain happy of being a minority guy 🙂
All Darwinists are totalitarians by nature. Forced indoctrination is their favorite method of spreading their stupid religion. How they get away with it in a democracy is an enduring mystery.
