Book, ‘Sowing Atheism’ Impacts Crucial Texas Evolution vs. Creation Debate

ANNAPOLIS, Md. and AUSTIN, Texas /Publishers Newswire/ — Solving Light Books announced today that Don McLeroy, controversial Chair of the Texas State Board of Education, has recommended “Sowing Atheism” (ISBN: 978-0-9705438-5-1) by Robert Bowie Johnson, Jr., to other board members and to the general public. McLeroy’s timely recommendation could influence the board’s final decision on the science curriculum scheduled for March 27. The Texas decision will determine what is printed in science textbooks nationwide.

Sowing AtheismMcLeroy extols Johnson’s succinct demonstration that natural selection, the vaunted lynchpin of evolutionist reasoning, is not a scientific principle at all, but rather a mere figure of speech that adds nothing to our understanding of nature. McLeroy has said he plans to raise this issue in the March 26-27 meetings.

Johnson, who holds a general science degree from West Point, wrote “Sowing Atheism” in response to the propagandistic book, “Science, Evolution, and Creationism” published by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) in 2008. According to Johnson, McLeroy expects that “Sowing Atheism” will focus the Texas board’s attention on the “theft of true science” by the atheist-dominated NAS hierarchy.

“I’m delighted with Mr. McLeroy’s endorsement of ‘Sowing Atheism,’ and hope all the board members read it thoughtfully before they vote. Our nation cannot progress morally, spiritually, or politically so long as we permit the NAS to teach our children that they are descended by chance from worms,” Mr. Johnson said.

In his book, Johnson shows that the NAS cannot pick any one of the two million or so living species and identify the species from which it allegedly evolved, nor can the NAS produce any evidence for the alleged evolution of the sexes. Further, Johnson points out, the NAS admits it lacks a “plausible hypothesis” for the origin of life.

How, then, does the NAS sustain its “evolution is a fact” charade? Johnson answers: “The NAS resorts to intimidation and outright seductions which include repetitive false affirmations, disguised tautologies, authoritative obfuscations, and slapping ‘sciency’ lipstick on their no-evidence pig.”

“Sowing Atheism” is available on Amazon and at www.solvinglight.com where it is also available as a free PDF download.

    My, my you have drunk the Kool-ade accepting the sage words of an author who, after all, holds an undergraduate “general” science degree. Holding to the ridiculous notion that Mr. McElroy’s recommendation of the book is “timely” is one thing, but positing that the Texas Board of Education “will determine what is printed in textbooks nationwide,” is quite over the top. I am hopeful this little sophistry will stay right where it belongs in the Great State of Texas. If Texans desire to remain in the Dark Ages, that is their right, but sowing this ignorance is something different altogether. And by the way and as one whose child will be competing with Texas high school graduates for college entrance slots in the near future, this news is indeed “timely” and greatly anticipated. Texas education– Requiescat in pace.

    a word to your horror, mespo727272, but you should know that Texas is so populous that textbooks adopted on the state level there do indeed have an inordinate and horrifying influence on the rest of the country. Be afraid of these nuts.

    How can History be re-written. The History book should never change. History should be taught as in college ie
    before 19?? and current. Politics should NOT be included in History. It is a class of its own. YES, the constitution and it’s writing is History. All this “NEW” movement is not history. It is political science. Yes, I am a Glen Beck/O’Reily conservative. But, let the facts of our Nation be true. One must always remember as our fore fathers did ~ In God we trust.
