Plato said that two things "lead men to believe in gods", one based on the soul, and the other? "From the order of the motion of the stars, and of all things under the domination of the mind which ordered the universe."
Ah, but what does Plato know. In the vernacular of Paris Hilton, he is just some old dead dude.
Perhaps Plato's most famous student, Aristotle, argued that there must of been "First Unmoved Mover which is God, a living, intelligent, incorporeal, eternal and most good being who is the source of order in the cosmos."
Today Aristotle would be considered a right winger I suppose.
The left, while teaching the "theory" of evolution in our schools, never fails to insist that scientific evidence is on the side of Darwinism, and that simply is not true.
I just finished an excellent book, By Design: Evidence For Nature's Intelligent Designer - The God of the Bible, by Dr. Jonathan Sarfati. It is more of a Science book than a book you'd read while in the bathroom. Dr. Sarfati is also the author of Refuting Evolution 1 & 2, and Refuting Compromise. Creation Ministries International published this text, and even though it took me months to get through it, Dr. Sarfati takes the time, to go step by step, and crushes the lies of Darwinism.
Today's modern liberal refuses to allow debate on Intelligent design versus Darwinism, and I have often wondered why that is so. You'd think that these highly intellectual liberals would be secure enough in their beliefs to defend the religion of Evolution in front of a bunch of school kids, but they will not. Why?
Because they cannot. If they could...they would.
Instead they hide behind the imaginary separation of church and state crappola, and refuse to debate, and continue to teach the falsehoods of Darwinism as truth to our kids.
Parents, take the time to do a little study (it won't kill you)and you'll quickly discover that teaching Darwinism to our kids is political, not scientific.
Moreover, the left has a direct anti-God bias, it isn't that they don't believe in God, they hate God. Still, they cannot win the argument, so they do what all good leftist do when they are faced with facts, and truth. They smear, they deny, and they lie. They do it so often, you'd think we'd catch on.
This is the Educational Fascism of our time. The left, motivated politically, moves to squash truth and debate, and since the left DOMINATES education, they dominant what can and should be taught, or even argued.
Those of you, who are not locked into you political position when it comes to discovering truth, and to learning, let me offer the following links:
Be prepared to read, and take some notes. Both of these very in depth essays, are packed with facts, and the Scientists' names, and research info to back it up.
I am not expecting you to read four or five books, or even ten books, and decide that the Darwinists are goofy. My hope is, for those of you who truly seek wisdom, that you'll realize that there are thousands of Scientists, and a myriad of evidence to easily refute Darwinism.
For the left, this is political. The issue should be educational, not political. Why do I say it is political for the liberals? Because leftists need you to stop thinking about God as the Granter of rights. The left wants you to look at government as your god, your granter of rights. Naturally the left will to decide which rights, one nation under government, that you may have.
The notion put forth by anti-God people of alledged evolution goes clear back to Epicurus (341-270BC). It was Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43BC) who easily answered Epicurus in his writings, Da Natura Deorum. (On the Nature of the Gods) Cicero wondered that if chance collisions of particles could make a world, why then cannot they build much less difficult objects like a temple, a house, or a city, that nobody doubts were designed? Indeed.
At one time, Sir Isaac Newton was widely regarded as the greatest scientist who ever lived. I have asked around, and not one person, in or out of school, that I talked with, knew that Sir Isaac Newton wrote more about theology than science. For example, "This most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent Being."
Just another stupid dead dude?
Sir Isaac Newton also said: "Opposition to Godliness is atheism in profession and idolatry in practice. Atheism is so senseless and odious to mankind that it never had many professors."
At least until today's public schools.
