Part Three of Illustrated Antidisestablishmentarianism: Secularists try to divide Science from religion with terms like "non-overlapping magisterium". True Science and true religion do not conflict. Truth is truth.
Excerpted from Illustrated Antidisestablishmentarianism --
It's a religion that will tolerate no others. It puts man on the throne and Evolution as the Holy Scripture. Full color full page illustrations throughout.
Secularists like Charles Watts and Richard Dawkins affirm a single belief, though they vary in their methods of stating it. They believe that there is no evidence for the truth of any "revealed faith and that only secularist science should be permitted to exist. "Revealed" mean that people were told what to believe by a non-material means with no evidence that their written record is true.
Almost every American colony had some form of establishment of religion. This was because their religion consisted of proven and necessary facts of existence. Religion was reliable, logical and rational to them. The modern established religion of Secular Humanism teaches that it is the only scientifically-based belief system in existence. All other religions are not scientifically-based.
Hint. It's not what you think. It's a recipe for persecution, corruption and heresy. America's founding fathers understood that government must protect freedom, including the freedom to practice all religions. But they also understood that not all religions teach men how to be good citizens and make their countries prosper. The truth isn't out there somewhere, unfindable and unknowable. It's here.
