Format: Paperback
This book by David Noebel was to me a very interesting experience. It made clear a lot of philosophical aspects that I have sensed throughout my later years in school, but not been able to completely describe. It documents, through extended quotes and exhibits, some of the thoughts and strategies of the Secular Humanist movement in America at the start of the 20th century, and really is a wake-up call to teachers and students alike.

Format: Paperback
This is a book that actually shows you, page after page, what the humanists themselves say, complete with dates, sources and all references and even reprints of the relevant passages.

The best one is that the Humanist Association was registered as a RELIGIOUS organisation! And that their local chapters' objective is to spread humanism. What's more, they have their doctrines clearly printed in the Humanist Manifesto, including the idea that humans hold their own destiny and are their own gods. So there you have it: they worship themselves (gods), have a "church" (local chapters), a "bible" (Humanist Manifesto) and they "evangelise" (spread humanism to communities) and even registered as a religious organisation.

So we are replacing one religion with another in the classroom, quite blatantly...

Secular Humanism: A religious worldview based on theological atheism, philosophical naturalism, biological spontaneous generation/evolution, moral relativism, legal positivism, and political globalism. Engles and communist Karl Marx brought Humanism to nation-wide birth for the Bolshevik Revolution. After reading and correspondence with Europe, John Dewey, the Father of Modern Education, helped write and sign the Humanist Manifesto which was the Americanized version of the Communist Manifesto penned by Karl Marx. Paul Kurtz, author of Humanist Manifesto II, describes humanism as a philosophical, "religious", and moral point of view...that humanism, like every other worldview, acknowledges man's current shortcomings, offers a plan of salvation, and promises a future paradise. For the Humanist, man has problems because of an imperfect environment, he can "save" himself by restructuring society, and can thereby usher in utopia in the form of a world community. Paul Kurtz admits that all formal Humanist membership organizations in America either consider themselves explicitly "religious", or claim 501(c)3 "religious" tax exempt status. John Dewey saw education as the fundamental method of social progress and reform. Admittedly saying that our schools ... are performing an infinitely significant "religious work." John Dewey saw public education as a way to indoctrinate the minds of the population into embracing the religion of humanism. Hodgin asserts that the public schools took the place of the church in America, and that the schools are based on the religion of Humanism. The American Humanist Association honored Roy Wood Sellars, who claimed that traditional religion is dying and Humanism is becoming the new religion. Despite the U.S.Read more ›
