The Energy Non-Crisis
Lindsey Williams, who has been an ordained Baptist minister for 28 years, went to Alaska in 1971 as a missionary. The Transalaska oil pipeline began its construction phase in 1974, and because of Mr. Williams' love for his country and concern for the spiritual welfare of the "pipeliners," he volunteered to serve as Chaplain on the pipeline, with the subsequent full support of the Alyeska Pipeline Company. Because of the executive status accorded to him as Chaplain, he was given access to information documented in his eye opening book, The Energy Non-Crisis.
After numerous public speaking engagements in the western states, certain government officials and concerned individuals urged Mr. Williams to put into print what he saw and heard, stating that they felt this information was vital to national security. Mr. Williams firmly believes that whoever controls energy controls the economy. Thus, The Energy Non-Crisis. Video 1 of 8..

The ingredients of a Christian education
"We affirm that a biblical education in the Christian worldview will have these ingredients:
a) parental controlled teaching, b) a biblical curriculum, c) biblical goals for the education, d) biblical standards, e) biblical methods, and f) biblical motivations for accomplishing the child’s education We deny that education is biblical or Christian if parental responsibility, parental presence, and parental participation are not involved and if the ultimate goal is not to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. We further deny that education is biblical or Christian if its ultimate standard in theory and practice is not the Bible itself, and if its priority is the impartation of facts to the neglect of the formation of Christ-like character and a Christian way of life or if the subservient motivations it uses are inconsistent with Scripture."

Political Power and the Rule of Law - Ron Paul

My Mommy: My Nurse by Maribel Hernandez

Motherhood is one of the oldest vocations in delivering nursing skills. Mothers are natural nurses; they hold the monopoly on motherhood. Long before the Nursing profession came into vogue, mom nursed her children back to health. She has nursed (functional nutrition), bandaged their wounds (first aid skills), and tended to her baby’s diaper rash (dermatology). She also instructs her daughters on hormonal changes known as menses (Endocrinology). Mommy all along has provided her family with a broad spectrum of nursing skills. Miss Florence Nightingale understood the important roles of mothers as nurses. In her book, titled: Notes on Nursing, the preface reads in part. “It was written not “as a manual to teach nurses to nurse” but to assist millions of women who had charge of their families to “think how to nurse.” More...

Education Insights from Wendell Berry’s novel Hannah Coulter

Excerpt:: "When I think back to the childhood of my own children now, I remember that the thought of their education was always uppermost. Nathan and I, and I more than Nathan, wanted them to go to school. We wanted them to have all the education they needed or wanted, and yet hovering over that thought always was the possibility that once they were educated they would go away, which, as it turned out, they did. We owed them that choice, and we gave it to them, and it might be hard to argue that we were wrong. But I wonder now, and I wonder it many a time, if the other choice, the choice of coming home, might not have been made clearer." Full post

You don't have to get a college degree

Charles Murray rightly says that too many people are going to college -- but in a culture that over-values college degrees, do we want to condemn anyone to second-class citizenship? Murray has good news as he notes that

"A reality about the job market must eventually begin to affect the valuation of a college education: The spread of wealth at the top of American society has created an explosive increase in the demand for craftsmen. Finding a good lawyer or physician is easy. Finding a good carpenter, painter, electrician, plumber, glazier, mason--the list goes on and on--is difficult, and it is a seller's market. Journeymen craftsmen routinely make incomes in the top half of the income distribution while master craftsmen can make six figures. They have work even in a soft economy. Their jobs cannot be outsourced to India. And the craftsman's job provides wonderful intrinsic rewards that come from mastery of a challenging skill that produces tangible results. How many white-collar jobs provide nearly as much satisfaction? More ...

The Fundamental Mistake of Theistic Evolutionists By Jason Carlson and Ron Carlson (Christianworldviewnetwork.com) One of the most common charges the Christian evolutionists bring against the young earth creationists is that in disregarding the theory of evolution, young earth creationists are disregarding science itself.  Christian evolutionists often argue that in holding onto a literal reading of the Genesis record of the history of creation, Christians are in danger of making the same mistake that they made with Galileo back in the 17th century.  They claim that a literal reading of the creation account in Genesis does not correspond to the widely held “scientific” views of today; just like the 17th century Church’s reading of biblical passages which describe the movement of the sun did not correspond to the scientific observations of Galileo.  Thus, Christian evolutionists fear that once again, the church is in danger of looking like fools to the more enlightened “scientific” community.  As a result of their fear of looking irrelevant to the “scientific” community, theistic evolutionists abandon the creation record of God’s word in favor of the more widely held theory of evolution.

Teen creates nuclear fusion reactor in parents' basement
If you thought putting your kid's bike together was hard, you'd better sit down. Thiago Olson, a 17-year-old from outside Detroit, went and built himself a nuclear fusion reactor in his parents' basement. It took him over 1,000 hours, which is probably more time than you spent on that Huffy, but that's one impressive DIY project. The setup involves a vacuum chamber that gets filled with deuterium gas which then gets zapped with 40,000 volts of electricity. What results is a small amount of nuclear fusion. Full article ...

Illegal Immigration & Positive Law By Zach Englehart, SD, Constitutional Law Student, December 1, 2006 The current controversy and contentious debate over the illegal immigration dilemma in America is the direct result of the substantial consequences of the unprecedented growth and expansion of legal positivism, a philosophy of law which respects the personal autonomy without restrictions on the moral behavior of the individual. This particular element of law, which, in all reality, is no law at all but a mere pretext, has significantly contributed to our immigration debate, whether we should confer automatic citizenship on illegal immigrants or whether the dilemma can conclusively be resolved by strict boarder security measures and the enforcement of current and legitimate statutory regulations.

A Conversation on the Neutrality of University Engineering Courses
But upper level secular engineering courses are neutral right? I certainly understand the view that upper level engineering courses don't contain the spiritual dangers that humanities courses do.  I have taught many upper division courses in that "neutral" status quo manner. Christian engineering educators are doing better than secular schools in incorporating the Christian faith in the subjects and through mission focused service learning.  But, from my view and experience, it is possible to incorporate the Christian faith even further...in every formula, phrase, and design decision, only limited to the amount of time or emphasis desired.

Charlotte Iserbyt: Deliberate Dumbing Down of the World

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Deliberately dumb

“Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt’s new book, ‘ the deliberate dumbing down of america’ is without doubt one of the most important publishing events in the annals of American education in the last hundred years.

“John Dewey’s ‘School and Society,’ published in 1899, set American education on its course to socialism. Rudolf Flesch’s `Why Johnny Can’t Read’ published in 1955, informed American parents that there was something terribly wrong with the way the schools were teaching children to read …

“But Iserbyt has done what no one else wanted or could do. She has put together the most formidable and practical compilation of documentation describing the well-planned ‘deliberate dumbing down’ of American children by their education system.’” Samuel L. Blumenfeld, writing on “Deliberately dumbing us down,” Dec. 2 on World Net Daily at worldnetdaily.com

Charlotte Iserbyt served as Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI), U.S. Department of Education, during the first Reagan Administration, where she first blew the whistle on a major technology initiative which would control curriculum in America’s classrooms.

The Government School Priesthood
“The current situation allows the government and big business to manufacture and maintain our culture for us, and in turn, control remains in the hands of the experts and institutions.” -- Helen Hegener, Alternatives in Education

The $600B per year public school monopoly is a hierarchy--a top-down pyramid of control, similar to that of a large church. For its power, it depends on psychological conditioning -- the willingness of those at the lower levels to believe in and obey the tenets and commands of the higher-ups. More...

How Colleges Purge Conservatives
In my last column, I commented on the repression exercised by college professors upon their impressionable students. Their goal is to mold those students who come in without many beliefs until they reflect, in perfect uniformity, a secular worldview. Students whose beliefs already match professors’ ideal ideological paradigm are rewarded. Those who refuse to conform are at the very least persecuted, and they are often denied graduation........

Are Nine Out of Ten Professors Unfit?

The bureaucracy of the modern establishment has given us a plethora of professionals, yet most of them are useless. The sad fact is that we as a people have turned over our well being to the bureaucracy of professionals, and we are quickly forfeiting our greatest power -- choice. The professionals declare the people as "unfit" for freedom, and therefore, only the bureaucracy of professionals are free.

What Cho Learned In The English Department

What was the motive behind 23-year-old Cho Seung-Hui's killing of 32 students and teachers at Virginia Tech? Why was he consumed with hate, resentment, and bitterness?

Cho was an English Department major and senior. As a frequent lecturer on college campuses, I have discovered that the English Departments are often the weirdest and/or the most leftwing.

A look at the websites of Virginia Tech's English Department and of its professors reveals their mindset. We don't yet know which courses Cho took, but it could have been any of these.

Did he take Professor Bernice L. Hausman's English 5454 called "Studies in Theory: Representing Female Bodies"? The titles of the assigned readings include "Black Bodies, White Bodies: Toward an Iconography of Female Sexuality in Late Nineteenth-Century Art, Medicine, and Literature," "The Comparative Anatomy of Hottentot Women in Europe, 1815-1817," "Selling Hot Pussy: Representations of Black Female Sexuality in the Cultural Marketplace," "The Anthropometry of Barbie: Unsettling Ideals of the Feminine Body in Popular Culture," and "Foucault, Femininity, and the Modernization of Patriarchal Power."

One of the assignments in this course (worth 10 percent of the total grade) is to "choose one day in which they dress and comport themselves in a manner either more masculine or more feminine than they would normally." More ... More...

Christians need Exodus from 'Pharoah's system'
Minister says 3 of 4 kids lose religious beliefs at public schools

By Bob Unruh
© 2007 WorldNetDaily.com

Exodus, according to the dictionary, is "a going out, departure or emigration," or "the departure of the Israelites from Egypt under Moses." Now there are Christian leaders who would like to add another definition: "The mass departure of Christians from the public school system."

Chaplain E. Ray Moore of Exodus Mandate, whose goal is to "encourage and assist Christian families to leave Pharoah's school system," said there's an urgent need Christian parents must understand.

"Based on statistics, there is a 70-to-80 percent chance that a [Christian] child will abandon the church and their faith in a public school career," Moore told WND. The bottom line, then, is Christian parents need to lobby their pastors, pastors need to lobby their denominations, and their denominations need to start programs creating and operating public schools.

Misguided on global warming

In the August 2005 issue Andy Crouch wrote an article chiding evangelicals for mistrusting scientists on the issue of greenhouse warming.1 He represents those evangelical leaders, including the editors of Christianity Today, who strongly believe that humans are warming the planet so fast that we need to act immediately to avoid catastrophic warming:

The theory is the all-but-unanimous consensus that human beings are changing the climate by emitting gigatons of carbon into the atmosphere, and that if we do nothing to change our behavior, the warming trend that has taken hold for the past century may well become a runaway gallop.1

There is still a significant minority of atmospheric scientists and climatologists who are skeptical of the significance of man-induced greenhouse warming.2 However, these scientists are not in positions of power and are treated almost as badly by the mainstream establishment as believers in young-earth creationism (or intelligent design). Crouch is correct that the issue is not that man is causing global warming, since skeptics also believe in man-caused global warming. However, he fails to inform his readers that the issue is over how much warming and whether it will have a net harmful effect. More...

The PC campus – politically corrupt

January 26, 2007 By Joseph Farah
I'm kind of tired of hearing about our "politically correct" colleges and universities. There's nothing "politically correct" about them. They are politically corrupt. Let me give you a personal and very recent example of what I'm talking about. My eldest daughter was mostly homeschooled. Later, she found she had a love for art and interior design. She decided she wanted to pursue a career in that area. To enter the art school of her choice, she needed to take some basic educational courses and decided the easiest and most economical choice would be through the Northern Virginia Community College system. As a graduate of the "public university" myself, I expected the worst in political indoctrination – even in this so-called "red state." (Column continues below) But nothing could prepare me for the horror story my daughter told me after her first class in the fundamentals of design materials – a required course for her to advance to the prestigious art school she hopes to attend in a year or two. The professor began the four-hour class by showing Al Gore's new movie, "An Inconvenient Truth." That's right. That's what I said. The taxpayer-supported professor at this taxpayer-supported institution abused her students on the first day of an art class by showing them Al Gore's propaganda flick on "global warming." But it gets worse – a lot worse. More ...

What's Wrong With Vocational School?
Too many Americans are going to college. BY CHARLES MURRAY Wednesday, January 17, 2007. The topic yesterday was education and children in the lower half of the intelligence distribution. Today I turn to the upper half, people with IQs of 100 or higher. Today's simple truth is that far too many of them are going to four-year colleges. Begin with those barely into the top half, those with average intelligence. To have an IQ of 100 means that a tough high-school course pushes you about as far as your academic talents will take you. If you are average in math ability, you may struggle with algebra and probably fail a calculus course. If you are average in verbal skills, you often misinterpret complex text and make errors in logic. These are not devastating shortcomings. You are smart enough to engage in any of hundreds of occupations. You can acquire more knowledge if it is presented in a format commensurate with your intellectual skills. But a genuine college education in the arts and sciences begins where your skills leave off. More ...

The Crisis and Politics of Higher Education

Larry P. Arnn, President, Hillsdale College, November 2006 - Many of our politicians have it backwards these days. It's not a shame to lose an election. But it is a shame to serve a wrong idea—which is what Republicans, while in control of the White House and both houses of Congress, have been doing the past six years in education policy. Most recently, they have been seeking to reauthorize the Higher Education Act of 1965, the first and still the authoritative assertion of the modern bureaucratic state into higher learning.

A product of the Great Society, the Act provides direct aid from the federal government to colleges and universities and their students. With this aid comes rules, rules by the tens or hundreds of thousands, rules beyond the knowing of any person. Every year these rules are adjusted, refined, forgotten, remembered, and reinterpreted in countless ways by countless people. But every five or six years, relatively major changes are made by several pieces of legislation. This is what is meant by “reauthorization.” Full article ...

VIDEO: Progress Continues Toward a North American Union
CNN - Lou Dobbs When Mexican president Vicente Fox leaves office this week and Felipe Calderon takes his place, President Bush will be the last of the so-called three amigos. Bush, Fox, and, of course, Canadian prime minister Paul Martin were the originators of the so-called Security and Prosperity Partnership, which critics call nothing more than a North American union. It means open borders, commerce of all costs, and, by the way, without the approval of either American voters or the U.S. Congress. Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch said: “There’s nothing wrong with neighboring governments talking to each other, synchronizing their watches to make sure they’re all on the same page in the cases of emergency or on trade issues or even on the flows of goods and people. But if policies are being made that the American people might oppose, or that are contrary to the law, especially as it relates to immigration, you know, they’re doing something a bit more nefarious.” He points to SPP documents urging the free flow of goods and people across borders and a wish list from business interests that borders remain open during a flu pandemic. Worse, critics say foreign policy elites are promoting a European-style union, erasing borders between the three countries and eventually moving to a single North American currency called the amero. A Commerce Department spokesman, however, denies this: “There is absolutely no plan for a common currency.” View Video…

The Dirty Dozen: America’s Most Bizarre and Politically Correct College Courses
Occidental College’s The Phallus ranked the most bizarre class of ’06 -’07

HERNDON
, VA – As college costs soar through the roof—averaging above $31,000 a year for tuition, room & board—today’s college students study adultery, the male genital, and Native American feminism. The Dirty Dozen highlights the most bizarre and troubling instances of leftist activism supplanting traditional scholarship in our nation’s colleges and universities.

The growth of these courses gobbles up tons of money and resources and ignores scholarship from conservatives. For instance, books and speeches from the late Milton Friedman and Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick are rarely studied in the classroom, yet leftist works are prevalent in college classrooms nationwide. Scores of courses were researched from hundreds of the nation’s leading schools. The Dirty Dozen is the worst of the worst. This year, we have also included a dishonorable mentions category—courses that could’ve easily made the list. More ...
