The Humanistic foundation of US Public Education promotes six politically motivated popular myths in today’s classrooms.
- Over-population, too many people on the planet.
- Shortage of natural resources, not enough food for everyone.
- Evolution, you came from pond scum and are going to dirt.
- One world government, we won’t survive without central control.
- Socialism is a successful economic system.
- Climate Change & Global Warming will kill us all.
All six are FALSE.
Over-Population. As I rode around my former home state of North Carolina, I never ceased to be amazed at the tremendous amount of empty land, and this is true all over the world. We are indebted to Gary Newell for the following illustration on population. “If we gave every person about two and one-half square feet, about enough space to stand and turn around, how much space is needed for the whole world population? They would all fit within the city limits of Jacksonville, Florida.” If that’s true then why do we have starvation in some parts of the world? Do we have a shortage of natural resources?
Shortage of Natural Resources. The most commonly cited illustration of the not enough food is the country of India, where starvation is common. India produces sufficient food to feed all its population and export one-third to fee other countries of Asia. Why then do they starve? It’s because they have a religious system that: 1) not only allows large amounts of food to be eaten by the “sacred animals” but 2) does not let the people eat the animals that are readily available. Starvation in India is a religious, or spiritual darkness problem not a shortage of resources. People may also starve because of: war, localized famine, crop failures, unfavorable weather, etc. but overall there is enough food for everyone if we could eat what’s available.
Evolution. Atheistic Evolution is impossible, NOT improbable, IMPOSSIBLE! It has to break three scientific laws to succeed. All the “missing links” are still missing. It has to defy logic in the design of living organisms. It has to invent information without intelligence. But the real issue is the Roman’s 1 problem. “…their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools.” For information about Evolution see the books I’ve published ANSWERS For “The Hope That Is In You” and to be released soon “Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead.”
One World Government & Socialism. Both of these political ideas are pushed in texts dealing with government, civics, social studies, etc. Never in any of these have either one of these views been criticized or analyzed in an objective fashion. They are portrayed as Utopian solutions.
Climate Change and Global Warming. This myth has very contradictory scientific data, and apocalyptic predictions about the future have not been fulfilled. Al Gore predicted the Polar icecap would melt by now but it’s still very large. The Antarctic ice cap today is larger than many previous years.
