UC Berkeley, along with most universities and colleges in this country, is actively endorsing and promoting religions that disbelieve the creation account of the origins of man in favor of evolution. Somehow, this doesn’t constitute the endorsement of religion using tax dollars, though. Isn’t that interesting how religions that teach a liberal view of the world don’t receive the same censorship that other religions do. I’m growing about as weary of our liberal education system’s hypocrisy as I am their “creationism isn’t science” mantra. Intelligent Design has a wealth of scientific evidence to support it. The problem is, the Darwinists are just too afraid to let it be heard, or acknowledge peer reviewed research on the subject. The problems with the THEORY of evolution must be kept under wraps, and Darwinists must not be expected to answer questions. That’s the only way you can handle the opposition when your science is flawed, and your theory is based on blind faith. It takes far more faith to be an atheist and evolutionist than it does to be a Christian who believes in Intelligent Design.
Whether a public university can use taxpayer funds from the federal government for a website that overtly endorses the beliefs of some religious groups regarding evolution and creation â€“ but not others â€“ is the focus of a case that’s being prepared for submission to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“This is a classic example of what the Founding Fathers did not want,” Brad Dacus, of the Pacific Justice Institute, told WND.
His organization is working on the case that revolves around a University of California-Berkeley website that advocates for a single perspective in the arguments over evolution â€“ and highlights a list of religious groups whose beliefs agree with that perspective.
The site, funded by a federal grant and aimed at influencing teachers to promote evolution, excludes and ridicules perspectives â€“ and religious groups that hold those perspectives â€“ that fail to align with its stated beliefs.
“Some religious beliefs explicitly contradict science (e.g., the belief that the world and all life on it was created in six literal days); however, most religious groups have no conflict with the theory of evolution or other scientific findings,” states the website.
“This [website] injures religious freedom in this country,” Dacus said. “The government is playing a role that is overtly hostile to some religious groups and denominations while favoring and giving greater recognition towards others.”
He continued, “This case involves the ability of the state to use taxpayer money to overtly endorse and encourage support of one set of religious denominations over others.”

By the way, if you want to really upset an evolutionist, try to get them to answer questions about the evolution that had to take place to get from primordial ooze to an ape. They like to pretend the ape to man part of evolution is all that exists. “Ooze to ape” presents all sorts of problems for them, and they don’t like to talk about it. Darwin didn’t write a book about “change in species over time”. Christians wouldn’t argue that species change. Darwin wrote a book on “the ORIGINS of man”, meaning where humans came from and where it all began. Asking a Darwinist about the billions of years of evolution that supposedly took place before apes and ape-men appeared on the scene can lead to hours of highly entertaining theories that often involve some form of intelligent design, or some off the wall theory about the necessary components for life piggybacking on crystals from another galaxy. More often than not, however, you’ll get a frustrated attempt to steer the conversation back to the magical point in time when all the intricate and delicately balanced parts of a living ape had evolved to begin the process of becoming humans.
