Fleeing from East Berlin

Category: Evolution related
For many Germans, the horror of being confined in East Germany, is still fresh in their memory. Under the atheistic government of the Russians, the authorities put up a wall, the Wall of Shame, to prevent people from escaping to the West (1961). What inspired people to flee with the possibility of losing their lives, which many did? Freedom, and a better life.
Today, even where the Berlin Wall is just a sad memory, we find the same tactics used to keep people confined in an intellectually fortified city.
Note the following: Evolutionary theory has been enshrined as the centerpiece of our educational system, and elaborate walls have been erected around it to protect it from unnecessary abuse (Jeremy Rifkin, Algen, NY, Viking, 1983, as quoted by H Morris, The Long War against God, Master Books, 2000, p 45). The Wall around evolution prevents society from escaping to the freedom of scientific investigation of this conjecture. Examples are the following:
1. Richard Milton in his book, Shattering the Myths of Darwinism, Park Street Press, 1992, gives a few examples of the strong man tactics used by evolutionists. He was derided by Prof Richard Dawkins as “loony”, “stupid” and “in need of psychiatric help” for asking questions about evolution. But no attempt was made to answer his serious questioning. He discovered that Prof Dawkins also secretly wrote letters to newspaper editors alleging that Mr Milton (who is not a believer in the God of the Bible) was a secret creationist and hence not to be believed (ibid, p 268).
2. Dr Jerry Bergman said the following: ‘If authors are known as creationists, their articles, regardless of the empirical merit and quality, are most often rejected for publication. At times they are accepted, but when the creationist persuasion of the authors is discovered, they are not uncommonly rescinded’ (Ibid, 265, 266). (Creationists are people who believe in the Bible and have scientific evidence to doubt the evolution dogma.) Dr Melvin Cook experienced this when he wanted to publish his book about the wrong assumptions in radio dating (Ibid 37). This in a so called free Western world. What has happened to academic freedom to pursue the truth?
3. The same thing is happening in schools. There the motto is to protect and enforce evolution and exclude any Biblical teaching that might question evolution (J Sarfati, Refuting Evolution, Master Books, 2002, p 31-33).
How does one explain this Evolution Wall? Simply by this: truth does not need protection. That is why the Gospel of God has no laws to enforce it. It is by free will. But false philosophies or religions, like Communism, must be enclosed and protected by walls to keep the citizens entrapped. But as history has shown, even the Berlin Wall fell with a great crash. Truth is always victorious.
