Creation is now Conspiracy
American Sovereignty Network is made up of people of faith but following us does not require adherence to a particular faith. This specific commentary focuses upon just one more area where people of a traditional worldview are pigeonholed into the nebulous catch all category of ‘conspiracy theorists’ which is now the standard for anyone the left does not agree with. In short, if you believe in a God who created the world, you are officially now an ‘anti-science conspiracy theorist’. Unfortunately, name calling is not enough for the left this time. The spirit of cancel culture is pushing them to attempt to impose total silence upon those who dissent with their atheistic worldview. Here is the key point: For the umpteenth time, no disagreement will ever be allowed when the left finds a topic not to their liking. Diversity of thought is not welcome, free speech is now hate speech and the right to hold an non leftist opinion does not exist because their groupthink abhors nonconformity in all cases they disagree with.
Are you a Christian who believes in the Biblical account of creation? If so, Paul Brateman, Professor Emeritus of Chemistry at the University of Glasgow considers you to be a deluded ‘conspiracy theorist’. In fact, he immediately involves politics (*gasp) and puts you in the same ‘suspect category’ as people who believe that the US 2020 election was corrupted just for believing in the Biblical account of human origin. Approximately 40% of American adults profess to believe this viewpoint today. Dr Brateman declared Christians to be believers in a ‘parallel universe’ that operates against the scientific establishment. Profession of a belief in God or satan also match his criteria for someone who has by default rejected science.
In the last several decades, the issue of creation has been addressed by scientists who have found repeatedly that they can use science to debunk the claims of Darwinian evolutionists. People with credible academic backgrounds like Dr Henry Morris, Dr John Whitcomb or Dr Michael Behe have published science totally devoid of religious references but containing material which show the classic models of evolution to be impossible under the secular guidelines that people like Professor Brateman claim to be upholding. The first two names mentioned founded the Institute for Creation Research and they only employ scientists from established secular universities who are bold enough to not fear the derision of their peers when they publish material which refutes the mainstream, humanistic claims which the atheistic left are so desperate to make sure dominate all areas of academia.
In this case, it should not matter what your personal views are. If you are truly educated and enlightened, what do you have to fear from people who hold to a viewpoint that is different than yours? This is the left at is most stereotypical; anything they disagree with must be silenced and banned from discussion. Anyone who believes the world is of ‘intelligent design’ (note the term) must branded with a ‘scarlet C’ for daring to believe the world was created.
What really upsets people like Professor Brateman is when those who do not accept evolution point out the many past claims of ‘proof’ of evolution which were nothing but frauds. Piltdown Man was a skeletal hoax which was purportedly a ‘missing link’ between humanity and simian species. Nebraska Man was an entire species of proto human concocted from the discovery of the tooth from a now extinct pig. Another was Archaeoraptor which got wide coverage from National Geographic even though it was also deemed disreputable before it made it to publication. Perhaps one of the most egregious claims came from Ernst Haeckel who said that in an embryonic state, all life passes through phases where animals, including humans, exhibit gills, tails and eyeballs on the side. This was an attempt to show common ancestry but is utterly baseless, even in the eyes of the most die hard evolutionist. Once again, we see the same leftist claim of what they call ‘settled science’ despite consistently having to backtrack from what they formerly insisted was ‘settled’. The only thing ever settled is what the left approves of at the moment and any other views need not apply.
