The Evolution of Darrell Lambert

Your tax dollars are funding a system that proselytizes your children into a religion of godlessness! If you’ve ever doubted that; if you’ve ever thought such a statement is a product of a paranoid mind, think again. I offer my initial sentence into evidence, and the testimony affirming it is offered by an Eagle Scout, so I’m sure it’s trustworthy. The public school system is lying to your children in order to indoctrinate them into a religion of humanism, denying the existence of God.
I’m sure most Americans have now heard of Darrell Lambert, though many of you won’t recognize him by name. Out of respect to our international readers, let me explain who he is. Lambert is a nineteen-year-old Eagle Scout from Port Orchard, Washington who was recently expelled from the Boy Scouts of America because he is an atheist. The BSA requires its scouts to affirm a belief in God, or at least some higher power. As a private organization, they have a legal right under the U.S. constitution to establish such a requirement. Lambert refused to recognize any higher power, and that decision led to his expulsion. The decision of the BSA is not the issue, though.
In an Associated Press article published by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer on November 5, 2002, Lambert said that he became an atheist in ninth grade, “when he concluded that science had disproved the accounts of creation given in the Bible.” This is distressing not only because our public schools have placed another soul in mortal danger, but because Lambert’s reason for denying the existence of God is patently false!
I have no doubt that Lambert’s teachers told him that evolution is a fact. I have no doubt he was told there was no scientific evidence to support any other view of creation. The truth is far removed from that view. The facts indicate there is more scientific evidence to support a view of divine creation than there is to support evolution. Evolutionist L.T. More once said, “The more one studies paleontology, the more certain one becomes that evolution is based on faith alone…” I doubt Darrell Lambert’s teachers read that quote in class. Nor do I believe they ever cited this quote: “To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances…could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.” – Charles Darwin.
In states where local school boards or state boards of education attempt to open the door to the teaching of creationism alongside evolution, anti-Christian activist groups such as the ACLU threaten with lawsuits. Their religion – the religion of humanism – is being taught exclusively to our children, and they will not tolerate any other views. This seems to me to be rather ironic when it was ACLU lawyer Clarence Darrow, during the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial, who said, “It is the height of bigotry to teach only one view of origins.” I wholeheartedly agree with you on that Mr. Darrow.
If you still think that I’m going off half-cocked on a paranoid rampage, consider the following. In the Jan/Feb 1983 issue of The Humanist magazine, New Age leader John Dunphy said, “I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classrooms by teachers who correctly perceive their role as proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call the Divinity in every human being.”
There are dangers in ignoring this problem. Darrell Lambert is currently in denial of Almighty God. His soul is in peril because of his ninth grade school teacher, and because of the laws that allow this teacher to indoctrinate students into the religion of humanism. We cannot afford to shrug our shoulders and pay our tax dollars for the damning of our children’s souls. Parents must be involved in the education of their children. Counter the information they receive at school with the truth. Go to your school board meetings and speak out. Throw your hat in the ring during the next school board election. Lobby your state lawmakers. We must organize and contend if we hope to ever buck this trend. I leave you with two final quotes:
“The classroom must and will become and arena of conflict between the old and the new – the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith…” – John Dunphy in The Humanist, Jan/Feb 1983.
“This is what the LORD says: ‘Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the LORD .’” – Jeremiah 17:5 (NIV)
