Uncovering Atheist Assumptions At School
by Dinora Garza
10/21/2016 / Parenting
My daughter is learning about Religions at school, and she told me her teacher frequently pauses to tell them that no religion is true.
I was compelled to respond, how does she know that? Has she studied every religion and found all of them faulty? Did she consider with an unbiased and open mind the evidence on which they stand and found them false?
Truth is, she's just another atheist teacher, trying to impose her religious views on our children. Our kids are taught many lies in the name of science at school, while their teachers preach them atheism... and we wonder why they're not interested in the Word of God? How important it is to teach them to discern to separate right from wrong and truth from lieand to reason before they accept everything they're told at school.
I'll leave you with an excerpt from G. K. Chesterton's book "The Everlasting Man." Read it and share it with your children. The author teaches us how to dismantle a scientific assumption to see if there's truth in it:
"Statements are made so plainly and positively that men have hardly the moral courage to pause upon them and find that they are without support. The other day a scientific summary of the state of a prehistoric tribe began confidently with the words, "They wore no clothes," Not one reader in a hundred probably stopped to ask himself how we should come to know whether clothes had once been worn by people of whom everything has perished except a few chips of bone and stone. It was doubtless hoped that we should find a stone hat as well as a stone hatchet.
It is not contended here that these primitive men did wear clothes any more than they did weave rushes; but merely that we have not enough evidence to know whether they did or not. But it may be worthwhile to look back for a moment at some of the very few things that we do know and that they did do. If we consider them, we shall certainly not find them inconsistent with such ideas as dress and decoration. We do not know whether they decorated other things. We do not know whether they had embroideries, and if they had the embroideries could not be expected to have remained. But we do know that they did have pictures; and the pictures have remained. And there remains with them, as already suggested, the testimony to something that is absolute and unique; that belongs to man and to nothing else except man; that is a difference of kind and not a difference of degree"
"How blessed is the man who finds wisdom and the man who gains understanding." (Proverbs 3: 13)
