Many people will say that creation isn’t taught in schools because it isn’t scientific or that there is a separation of church and state. However, it seems like there is a bigger reason why creation isn’t taught, and that is a prior commitment to naturalism. There are many within the scientific community who believe that the material universe is all that exists and we should not explain things using a supernatural cause. Therefore, to talk about intelligent design or creation is off limits.

This past week we saw the effects of this worldview controlling what is able to be published. You can find the article that I reference in the podcast and the comments here. I hope you enjoy!
