Does anyone know what “textbook” this is a photograph of? After I asked that question, a commenter quickly informed me that it is from Behold Your God: Magnifying His Majesty by Frank Hamrick and Jeff Hedgepeth. Take a look:
Let’s work through the questions in this “textbook,” shall we?
The first one says that atheistic evolutionism has to do with “the existence of matter.” In answer to the question, that’s what is wrong – whoever made this despicable piece of garbage that is supposed to be a textbook doesn’t seem to know what the theory of evolution is.
The answer to the question about 2 Peter 3:5 is that it envisages creation as taking place as it is described in Genesis. The Earth is not round, there is a vast primordial ocean, and the Earth is brought into being by God gathering the waters so that dry land appears.The last question is clearly a trick question. Only someone who is either treating the Bible superficially, or using it with deliberate deceit, would say that the ancient author of 2 Peter was talking about scientists and creationism.
That this could be called a “textbook” by anyone is a travesty. That anyone is being indoctrinated with this garbage is criminal. It would be worth bringing a lawsuit for deliberate slander and misrepresentation on behalf of all scientists against the person who wrote the obviously false statements in it.
This is only one page and it is hard to find a single truthful or accurate statement about science, scientists, or Scripture. Now I know who wrote this, but they are just names. Who are these criminals, these charlatans, named Frank Hamrick and Jeff Hedgepeth? What do they have against the truth, against the Bible, against science, and against the poor unfortunate people who make use of their book? And who are the victims that this work of deception is being perpetrated against? The publisher’s web site says it is intended for high school students. What can be done to help warn the victims about the nature of what is being done to them?
