Humanistic Evolutionary Indoctrination Hijacks Science Education

Atheists and evolutionists will sometimes say that they want to have "an honest discussion" with creationists about origins science. Unfortunately, they obtain information from anti-creationist sources.  regarding what creationists believe and teach. From their questions and statements, we can tell that they seldom attempt to understand what creationists really believe and teach.

This kind of approach leads to absurd conversations resembling:
"You misrepresented the biblical creationist position".
"No, I didn't! I did not misrepresent it! Prove that I did!"
"You made assertions but did not substantiate anything".
"Liar! What I said is true!"

Sigh. Such illogical assertions are generally based on repeating what has been read from spurious sources.

The British Humanist Association gave an excellent example of the inaccurate information that has been spread about creationists. They listed several "arguments" that creationists use. These are straw man arguments, quote mining, uninformed but enthusiastic creationist laypeople, examples that BHA does not understand aspects of science themselves, blatantly untrue assertions (atheists like to falsely accuse, "Liar for Jesus", but we have cases of "Liar for Darwin") and more. This helps their efforts to suffocate critical thinking in students, ridiculing creationism and promoting falsehoods of evolution; this is brainwashing.
For some years the British Humanist Association (BHA) has been campaigning to prevent children in UK state-funded schools being informed about the evidence for a creator. They have been remarkably successful, especially in their lobbying for the most restrictive government regulations concerning what may be taught. For example, the latest ‘free school’ funding agreement requires that “The Academy Trust must not allow any view or theory to be taught as evidence-based if it is contrary to established scientific or historical evidence and explanations. This clause applies to all subjects taught at the Academy.” Since the theory of evolution would be deemed “established science” and “all subjects” would include Religious Education, it would appear that this effectively prohibits any meaningful discussion of the scientific evidence for creation in any classroom.
