You have an obvious political ax to grind, as usual. I don't care who runs the Dept. of Ed.; it's an arrogant and stupid Jimmy Carter idea to expect some bureaucrat in Washington to oversee something as subjective and philosophically loaded (and now corrupt) as education. Like the RCC, it's irreformable and should be shut down.

Literacy is only a problem for educated fools feathering their nests writing doctoral theses for credentialed Lib-Arts degree mills. All it really takes is a child, a parent, a book both like, and time.

We found that the ages kids catch on can vary. Given this, imagine the damage schools can do to slow or fast learners outside the Bell Curve (Normal Distribution).

John Taylor Gatto believed the dumbing-down of American schools was deliberate and not an accident; the "problem" Progressives behind it saw was the perceived danger of educating folks to think for themselves (despite their blather about Critical Thinking). He was a veteran of NYC schools in the Sixties and saw it firsthand.

This may be why today, we see educated, powerful people reasoning like morons.

I have always been amused when people say they believe a scientific principle and they are not scientists and they don’t remotely understand why science claims something is true.
Sadly, people with no experience in experimental science or formal logic are easily deceived by smooth talking, pseudo-scientific storytellers like Carl Sagan. That includes theologians.

One often-overlooked exception: theologian Gordon Clark pointed out that researchers "smooth over" noisy experimental samples with statistical methods chosen arbitrarily, then choose an arbitrary, pretty equation which "fits" it and call it a Law. He was not a credentialed scientist but summarized it perfectly.

"Latest" speaks volumes. If science wasn't infallible in the past, then why should we believe it is now? I suspect the author's agenda was to open the door to Darwinism, which given the problems the Scientific Method has with the present, is even more discreditable in its claims about the past.

Atheist Bertrand Russell's astounding admission that Causation and Induction are unsolved rational problems with science should get *everyone's* attention. Why do Christian apologists throw sticks at atheists when bombs like that are available?

Science isn't inherently sinful so long as man admits its limitations and gives due honor to God. And one cannot live hour-to-hour, day-to-day, without making many empirical or "scientific" choices, such as "I predict that car will stop at the intersection while I cross" or "I expect the casserole will be done a half-hour from now."

Everyone is a practicing scientist.

"... nature and scriptures shouldn't conflict because they’re both from God.”

True but grossly irrelevant, because unlike the Bible, which contains thousands of verbal propositions, nature reveals no propositions at all. One must measure and observe, and being empirical procedures, these vary and can err. This is why scientists, like politicians, keep flip-flopping their conclusions on various phenomena (and hedge with "more research is needed"). History is littered with abandoned theories since the Scientific Method cannot tell us anything universal about nature.

If we know anything about nature for certain, it's because the Bible tells us so since nature is mute.

Perhaps; criminals are natural Democrats. But don't rule out conservatives either; I've dealt with phonies among these, including pastors. This is why I'm wary of folks who make lots of unsolicited religious or patriotic noise. Men who cry out against abuses of the Bible or US Constitution, but won't heed God's rules or even their own.

Has anything changed much? Sadducees were the "liberals" of Jesus's day, and Pharisees the conservatives.

Yes and this also means that my taxes are going towards a catholic charity...
Good point. Bush's Faith-Based Initiative is where this began. Where childbirth issues come up, the Roman Church-State is never far away. They know fragmented Protestants can be drawn in by their political influence. For example, that link you posted says Focus on the Family has someone on the Obria Advisory Board.

If Obria had any sense, they'd refuse the offer, for these reasons:
1) Birth control isn't the govt's biz;
2) Such grants, no matter how well-meant, are a Faustian bargain with strings attached;
3) They're accepting money confiscated from taxpayers rather than a free-will donation.

"Purpose-Driven" style pastors [actually entrepreneurs pretending to be pastors] seem to like Hawaiian shirts. So I often wear a tie and slacks to rebel against the dissolute Establishment.😏

But it's getting hard to find decent trousers anymore.

So, I was reviewing what the Democratic party has done for the American people over the past three years, and trying recall all that they've been able to accomplish. I came to realize that their one and only agenda, and the one and only thing they've accomplished, as far as I can tell, is investigating Trump.
And thanks to this, they have proven Trump may be the most officially ethical President in our lifetimes, as who else could've survived such scrutiny from their greatest enemies? If there was anything he actually did that was impeachable, it would've been found, or else they didn't need to resort to Stalin-style fabrications.

Only problem is, Americans aren't impressed by high ethical standards when they hinder them from getting what they want. And Socialist Democrats now are promising them the Moon.

... the Lord is not somehow trapped within His own "natural laws
I doubt we can even speak of natural laws since if they are truly laws, they can never be violated, yet Jesus violated Archimedes' "Law" of Buoyancy when He walked on water. Given this and other miracles, I'd rather say there is only a kind of regularity in nature God has the prerogative to ignore when He pleases, for He upholds *all* things by the word of His power, Heb. 1:3.

This is not to say that God could get 3 from 1+1, though. That is irrational, but defying everyday physics is not since there is no proof it's universal.

"Atheism is inconsistent with the scientific method"

Sure, and I'm glad he admits human knowledge is limited, but there is a deeper problem: the Scientific Method itself is irrational. We have no compelling reason to believe that experimental results or mathematical models show how all of nature works and has always worked, for one would need an inductive proof, impossible except in some analytic mathematics (i.e., if F(n) true, then F(n+1) also is). Furthermore, samples always vary, which either means the theory is wrong, the equipment is flawed or noisy, or both. Massaging it with statistics amounts to Special Pleading.

All scientists can ever do is propose models of how nature works. If they are useful, well and good, but they can never be true.

One's view of children reveals basic beliefs. Those who believe in Original Sin think they're foolish and need to be straightened out, whereas Progressives think they're wonderful and basically innocent, as Pelagius taught, until "corrupted" by the adult world. In early America, this was repeated by Quakers, Unitarians, and others hostile to Biblical Christianity.

No wonder Pelosi wants younger voters, for she knows children, like criminals and other irresponsible fools, are natural Democrats.

Why 16 and not, say, 5? That's the mental level of many "Inner Child" Americans anyway, including some with graduate degrees.

What I dislike about smart phones and PCs is logistics: The "Upgrade Treadmill." After several years, one's device becomes obsolete and harder to maintain because hardware and software constantly change and they can't afford to keep regression testing apps against older systems. We found, for example, that some modern devices work only with smart phones newer than we own.

Result: hundreds of dollars for a new device of only marginally better utility. This is Planned Obsolescence with a vengeance. Same goes for increasingly computerized automobiles which become unusable at a much "younger" age once a critical part fails and costs more than the car is worth to replace.

Plus, all this compulsive computerization has resulted in a world where a crook in another hemisphere can mess up your life without warning.

Stewardship, anyone? All this ecological blather about Sustainability is risible in our culture which throws away people and things at an astonishing rate.

Nothing new: in the '60s, Baby Boomers repudiated the hated "conformism" of their parents by dressing and talking alike, only more disheveled.

To be sure though, I can't back this up with a fancy white paper.

Neil, the flaws in Mr. Trump's personality should be obvious. His lack of veracity should be obvious to anyone no matter from what source he gets it from.
Finding fault with other people, especially politicians, is child's play, and a fun hobby for Christians and leftists alike. What politician in recent memory *has* been more truthful? Obama? Clinton? Pelosi? Your double-standard of discernment is obvious to anyone, and has been noted here countless times by others.

If the press were as critical of Democrats as they are of Trump, their credibility would improve.

The foreign press merely repeats American news sources, so their antipathy to Trump and Repubs is easy to explain.
