Demographics unmistakably demonstrate that the newest generation is by and large rejecting belief in favor of materialistic interpretations. For others, indifference is the default option. This is an utter shame, responsible not only by those actively leading that generation away from the truth, but also by those believers who passively allow it to go on unchallenged!
Is this a byproduct of our society and its growing adherence to secularism? Are people as a whole becoming increasing more supportive of naturalism solely based on its merits, or is there potentially another factor involved? As one educator said:
“I’ve noticed a fascinating phenomenon in my thirty years of teaching: schools and schooling are increasingly irrelevant to the great enterprises of the planet…The truth is that schools don’t really teach anything except how to obey orders.”¹
By harnessing the attention of the students through the promotion of their own authority, educators have for decades shaped the path of this world through its children, generation upon generation. In regard to this, one professor honestly stated:
“…I use that trust to effectively brainwash them. . . . our teaching methods are primarily those of propaganda. We appeal — without demonstration — to evidence that supports our position. We only introduce arguments and evidence that supports the currently accepted theories and omit or gloss over any evidence to the contrary.”²
By their own admission, some educators indoctrinate the children in their care! This is a gross abuse of power, but sadly, not surprising.
As another commentator put it, “The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new — the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism …”³
