Article on Evolutionary Psychology

Interesting article. A lot of it was over my head but it is always nice to re-confirm infighting and disagreement among naturalists. Scientists dont have the corner on truth. Science is a term broadly used today to mean “truth” (scientism). This is false however as science is merely a methodology that provides raw data. Scientists are humans who have just as many biases and dogmas as any joe on the street. The author notes how “evolution” has been used by scientists as a method of gaining power and advancing political agendas throughout recent history. On a side note, if only physical explanations of human consciousness and behavior are available (as naturalism postulates), then I would like the author to offer an alternative-more plausible option than evolutionary psychology.

Memo from Columbine Massacre

This is prophetic and moving. Written by the Colorado State Board of Education in the wake of the Columbine massacre April 1999. Read what this group of public school officials and state employees write. Listen to their exhortations. This is more relevant today than it ever has been.

“Finally, we must remember, respect, and unashamedly take pride in the fact that our schools, like our country, found their origin and draw their strength from the faith-based morality that is at the heart of our national character. Today our schools have become so fearful of affirming one religion or one value over another that they have banished them all. In doing so they have abdicated their historic role in the moral formation of youth and thereby alienated themselves from our people’s deep spiritual sensibilities. To leave this disconnection between society and its schools unaddressed is an open invitation to further divisiveness and decline. For the sake of our children, who are so dependent upon a consistent and unified message from the adult world, we must solve these dilemmas.”
