AAAS Promoting Sunday School Material

Casey Luskin

The Darwinists continue to promote theology (as long as it is pro-Darwin-only):

The book, “The Evolution Dialogues,” was written with the input of both scientists and theologians. Meant specifically for use in Christian adult education programs, it offers a concise description of the natural world, as explained by evolution, and the Christian response, both in Charles Darwin’s time and in contemporary America. It has a glossary of terms from both science and religion, with “bacteria” and “Biblical infallibility” defined on the same page.

The AAAS’s attempt to tell religious people how to view evolution reminds me of quotes from famous Darwinists about “true religion:”

Of course there are some beliefs still current, labelled as religious and involved in religious emotions, that are flatly incompatible with evolution and are therefore intellectually untenable in spite of their emotional appeal. Nevertheless, I take it now as self-evident, requiring no further special discussion, that evolution and true religion are compatible.

(George Gaylord Simpson, The Meaning of Evolution, pg. 5, 1949, 1950 Reprint, Yale University Press, emphasis in original)

And another one by Judge Jones:

The Founders believed that true religion was not something handed down by a church or contained in a Bible, but was to be found through free, rational inquiry. At bottom then, this core set of beliefs led the Founders, who constantly engaged and questioned things, to secure their idea of religious freedom by barring any alliance between church and state. As I hope that you can see, these precepts and beliefs, grounded in my liberal arts education, guide me each day as a federal trial judge.
