Common Core Teaches Only ‘Science’ is True

avatar

If you read nothing else today, read the New York Times article by philosophy professor Justin McBrayer, “Why Our Children Don’t Think There Are Moral Facts.”

Professor McBrayer discovered that, as part of Common Core–control of public education curriculum, nationwide, by the federal government–children are being taught that something is either a Fact or an Opinion. A fact, said a poster in his son’s second-grade classroom is something that is true about a subject and can be proven. An opinion is what someone thinks, feels, or believes.

So what’s wrong with that?

First, says the professor, the teaching is that “truth” and “proof” are the same thing–when, of course, they aren’t. “It’s a mistake to confuse truth (a feature of the world) with proof (a feature of our mental lives).”

Second, he explains, the teaching is that any claim is either a fact or an opinion–never both. “Value claims,” therefore–claims that an act is right or wrong, good or evil, “are not facts.”

Yup, everything but mainline “science” is just a fantasy in someone’s individual mind, and can only be ignored.  So there’s no such thing as “truth”: it’s either “your truth” or “my truth.” Thank you, Pontius Pilate.

The professor is right on target, as far as he goes. But his article does not explain why the same moral illiterates who teach children that the only claims that are “true” are those “facts” established by Science, fly into a frenzy at the slightest suggestion that, for instance, marriage consists of a man and a woman. There is no “scientific proof” that it does. There is no “scientific proof” that it doesn’t. But just say the magic words, and that whole “your truth, my truth” thing goes out the window and the Diversity crowd wants to destroy you.

Prof. McBrayer does suggest that there is a certain element of Doublethink involved in this whole enterprise. That’s putting it mildly.

So what do you get when you have “scientific truth” without any concept of moral truth?

You get Frankenstein. Every single time.

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
