Louisiana "Academic Freedom" Law

It looks like the Louisiana "Academic Freedom" law may very well pass, much to the chagrin of the liberal *nazi evolutionists. There was a time in this country when critical thinking and exchange of ideas was encouraged, but the left's many special interest groups (Darwinists, Homosexuals, Global Warming Alarmists, etc.)have fought to stifle any thought or verbalization of ideas that run contrary to their dogma.

Almost hysterically, Barry Lynn of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State issued this statement: “This bill isn’t about improving education in Louisiana; it’s about sneaking religion into the science classroom.”

No, Barry, it's about questioning the status quo. Questioning theory that is presented as fact. Questioning those in the world of Science who have set themselves up as gods who are not to be questioned but to be worshipped blindly as the all-knowing of the universe.

Everything has a cause. But rather than reaching back into infinity, most of us come to the conclusion sooner or later that there had to be at some point in time, an uncaused first cause. The universe, which science says is slowly winding down, can not have always existed. There had to be something or someone to be the first cause - and that cause had to be uncaused. I believe that First Cause is God. I'm not alone - and those of us who believe this should be allowed to discuss the evidences for and against any theory concerning origins.

I applaud those of Louisiana, as well as other states like Missouri, Alabama, Michigan, and Florida, who have enough courage to push for a law allowing the questioning of the theory of Evolution. If you want to believe it, by all means, it's your perogative. But don't force your beliefs on those who think differently and then accuse us of trying to force our beliefs on you.

This reminded me of something I was mulling over this morning - could science be legitimately defined as "the study of things that exist"? If so, then first cause(s) are definitely not exempt. However, science can't make PAST predictions. That's called history. It can, though, observe the present and make predictions about the FUTURE, which may or may not be fulfilled.

So I could maybe modify that tentative definition to "the observation of things that exist." Still, first cause(s) are not exempt. Does this poke a hole in evolutionists' closed-mindedness?

Good point. And if something MIGHT exist, would that be something Science would want to study? Haven't many discoveries been made because of a "hunch" that some scientist had because of something he/she had observed?

And if God MIGHT exist, wouldn't it seem natural that science would want to study that possiblity as well?

That is, unless, Science enjoys being a god of sorts.
