Evolution religion



Evolution must start on the premise that “something” was already available (Big Bang, ocean, etc.) and from that available “something” life forms began to evolve. In the beginning of many evolution books, especially text books, on about the second or third page tucked away in the middle of a paragraph, inside a sentence is a little phrase that usually says, “the inorganic became organic.” The writer then moves, without fanfare, to build the theory of evolution on the foundation of that little phrase without ever stopping to explain how that event happened.

Public education in the United States has accepted this theory almost without question.  School children almost universally within that system accept the theory and internalize it as a basis for their world view.  When a belief takes root that becomes so pervasive as to capture the thoughts of most students passing through the leaning system, it renders the learners to such a position of rigidity they will not even entertain a competing thought that may change their desired course of thinking.  When that happens, one can finally say their belief has become a form of religion carried forward only by faith.

So when School Boards and the local, state and federal governments push to extend the teaching of evolution exclusively, isn't that violating the principle of "separation of Church and State"?
