What Does Michael Pearl Really Believe Besides Beating Children?

What Does Michael Pearl Really Believe Besides Beating Children? September 9, 2018

This month’s No Greater Joy magazine had a chapter from the book Michael Pearl has been working on post-stroke for publication. It’s called ‘The Gap Fact’ and has something to do with creationism and his version of science, which likely means there’s no real established legitimate real science anywhere in it. So what does Michael Pearl really believe besides beating children?

Besides the beating children until you break their spirits there are a couple of other stances we’ve seen through the years.

  • Beating animals to prove you are bigger and badder than them.
  • Emotionally abusing your wife until she’s broken in spirit.
  • Denial of mental health issues and claiming all depression is selfishness.
  • Denial of physical health problems.
  • Insisting wife is to give you sex upon demand.
  • No marriage licenses.
  • Eating animal feed corn is good for your family.

So now we come to Michael’s thoughts on creation and it’s a doozy with nothing to support it.

And what does Michael use to justify his view? De nada, just a bunch of claims that all believers knew this to be true in that past before the Young Earthers arrived. He’s saying that God instantly made antiques so that everyone would think the world is way older than it is, so it is older and younger at the same time.

He ends with this:

I cannot figure out what is more comical, Pearl insisting his book is well researched, or the fact that he thinks that declaring that ‘simple believers’ know the truth.

And these are the people dictating what is and isn’t Godly to teach in homeschooling. Please do not teach this demented and uneducated man’s made up nonsense as fact if you want a well educated child. Beginning to think that the worst of the worst public schools hold a better chance of educating anyone than anything that the Pearls teach.
