"In what has become one of the greatest deceptions of our day, radical environmentalism is striving to put America, and the world, under its destructive control. This so called Green Dragon is seducing our children in our classrooms and our culture. Its lust for political power now extends to the highest global levels, and its twisted view of the world elevates nature above the needs of people, of even the poorest and the most helpless. With millions falling prey to its spiritual deception, the time is now to stand and resist."This video is a 12 minute promo for the DVD series Resisting The Green Dragon, produced by The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation, who describe themselves thus:
"The Cornwall Alliance is a coalition of clergy, theologians, religious leaders, scientists, academics, and policy experts committed to bringing a balanced Biblical view of stewardship to the critical issues of environment and development. The Cornwall Alliance fully supports the principles espoused in the Cornwall Declaration on Environmental Stewardship, and is seeking to promote those principles in the discussion of various public policy issues including population and poverty, food, energy, water, endangered species, habitat, and other related topics."Please take the time to watch the video (12 minutes) then read what I have to say after the jump...
"There is considerable harm in teaching creation-science as science because the consequent blurring of the line between religion and science means that students will not understand what the scientific paradigm is and how to apply it properly.
Moreover, the assumptions behind creationism comprise a two-pronged attack on all the sciences, not just on evolutionary biology. One, if the universe and Earth are only about ten thousand years old, then the modern sciences of cosmology, astronomy, physics, chemistry, geology, paleontology, paleoanthropology, and early human history are all invalid."This kind of misinformation is not only scary, but it is potentially very destructive, especially when we consider that America is one of the worst polluters per capita, and one of the biggest consumers of resources per capita on the planet. Once the American public is convinced that the environmentalist push in the world is based on a want of the powers that be to control their lives, there is little that could convince them to buy and consume less, and to help preserve this planet for future generations. This is precisely where religion, and religious dogma, causes me the most concern; misinformation allows for bad decision-making, and from bad decisions come bad outcomes.
