Surfing around the other day, I came across a good reference on Darwinian indoctrination. They make some good points. I’ve compiled a small sampling, but you really should have a look at the whole thing.
2. Begin pushing the envelope toward the real goal: belief in naturalism instead of God.
For the Darwinists, it’s not about science, but about their materialistic worldview.
7. Vilify resistance to the agenda.
Bryan, a prominent politician and lawyer, did not serve as lead counsel because the prosecution recognized that the media viewed him as the lightning rod for Biblical values. Not unlike Christian activists today, Bryan became the subject of media mischaracterization—if not persecution.
Mencken, in covering the trial for the Baltimore Sun, depicted Bryan, as well as the people of Dayton, as backward and ignorant.16 However, Bryan was a man of accomplishment as well as of faith. He had served as U.S. Secretary of State and run three times for president. Although more than 200 journalists covered the trial, Mencken’s mischaracterizations stuck.
This has been a staple of the materialist’s arsenal for a long time. Even on this blog, there are numerous examples of Darwinists villifying the opposition instead of supporting their theory or rebutting contrary views through evidence and logic based reasoning.
Darrow’s real agenda was not to prevent Christians from controlling education but to ensure that atheists and humanists would.
