Yesterday Genesis crashed. The parachute didn't open. Now it wasn't the true Genesis of the Scriptures, which has been rather neglected and set aside. No, it was the crackerjack inventions of the scientists at NASA whose toy fell to the earth with a splat. This sandbox for professional hunters called scientists set you back a mere two hundred fifty million dollars. One of the cheaper variety. The purpose: to hunt for the origin of the universe. It seems that the sand which was captured from the wind was predicted to hold the ancient secret of how the world and the solar system came into being.
Now you would think that this humanistic enterprise would be funded by the benevolent hunter-scientists out of a pure love for their notions and disciples. Nothing doing. You are in on the project and forced to fund this fun and games via your taxes. You are the goose that laid the golden egg. It seems this was one of the cheaper "explorations." Humanism is very expensive. We know who pays for it. You, dear Christian Tennessean, you sleepy American.
Werner Von Braun stated that one of the purposes of the space program was to "free the human spirit." What he really meant was to free the national purse for his curious infidel buddies. At least when Columbus did his searching, a rich Queen paid the bill.
Evolution has a big price tag and humanism's discovery of origins has made many rich but not you, my dear burdened friend. Take another example. Your benevolent Congressman recently signed a check to pay a hundred fifty million dollars to the Arabs to teach them the Islam religion. These two examples are a mere pittance to the billions and trillions which have gone into equipment and textbooks to pay for the theories of Darwin, Freud and Marx from the middle of the twentieth century. This author was recently standing in front of the historic marker at the Rhea County Court House which tells of the victory over the ACLU in 1925 regarding the teaching of the theory of evolution. How right it was for the teaching of lies to be outlawed! What a good bunch of legislators to call a halt to the teaching of lies, I say! Where are their descendants today? How proud we should be to be from the State which outlawed such nonsense!
It would be well for this audience to consider the tenets of Humanism, which was long ago declared to be a religion by the supreme Court. There are six. The first is that Deity is irrelevant. Second, that human reason is supreme. Third, Progress is inevitable. Fourth, Science is the guide to progress and provides an alternative to religion. Fifth. Evolution is absolute. Sixth. Man is autonomous and central. I will dare add the seventh: there is no eternity, no heaven or no hell.
There you have it. And if you don't believe these marvelous emanations of idiocy and tomfoolery, you are considered uneducated. Count this writer in on the uneducated set. We uneducated find ourselves in good company with a multitude of the greatest minds in history, including the founders of this great nation and their learned ministers and commentators like Daniel Webster. But also, let us join the category with those who will continually resist my tax dollars going to fund these vain imaginations while the high priests and priestesses of humanism and their favorite judges order copies of God's Law and our Christian heritage out of the courts and schools. For further elaboration on the hypocrisy of humanism and its invasions, you might look at the previous column on Diversity run by this paper. You are funding a religion all right, but there is just one which is Right and that is the Bible one, the one that founded the United States of America and in this God We Trust. Its Saviour suffered for us; humanism's saviour makes us suffer for their imaginations. What a contrast!
Can you guess why humanism is so popular with professional bums? Let us take a look at the national and state budgets and we will make our own discoveries. Budgets don't evolve. And neither do scientists.
