The real objectives of the fundamentalists is theocracy,
Now I only became aware of creationism in early 2009 via a creationist church and youth club. I would guess that was partly the result of TiS starting to try and push it in 2006? But it did appear in Britain far earlier, in the 1960s? And BCS was formed in 1976 and sobbing Sylv was starting up her CST schools about that time. And reading between the lines of her thesis, the religious neutrality lie was a big factor in that.
Given I was a christian for a good few years and attended both RC and CofE churches I didn't come across it in any form at all until relatively recently - So how much of a factor is Sylv in bringing it in and how close is she to Rushdooney? Why did it suddenly start to come to prominence and why was TiS formed?
One of his books about Christian education is on the recommended reading for parents list on the CST website and if she was peddling creationism in 1965, than she seems to be the only one old enough to have brought it into the country? Old enough to have had a hand in setting up BCS? And perhaps Arthur Jones would be too?
Clearly it wasn't totally dormant cos Marc and Garner and Lloyd and others were exposed to and taken in by it, but it certainly wasn't an issue or problem for any other than them. I'm just trying to get my head around it all. The USA seems very well documented and the fact its spread. But why?
At least three churches that I was aware of in 2009/10 were pushing it very hard back then - sermons, youth club talks and invites to creationist speakers Two have backed down dramatically, tho the leaders are creationists, and they're either selectively ignoring it or categorically stating it doesn't matter how you believe the creation happened (evolution or Genesis) as long as you believe God had a hand (according to creationist acquaintance mum and my christian friend who attends or has links to those churches). So something was clearly motivating them to suddenly start promoting it, clearly they hadn't before or the congregations wouldn't have reacted so oddly to it and caused them to back off.
I don't understand what exactly caused all this to set off. If you check Sylvia Baker on you tube, more people have watched my daughters boyfriends band singing in the living room than have watched any of her talks.
