The Council of Europe constitutes the teaching of creation a direct threat to its values, and warns it must be dealt with before it is too late. I came across this article on Sermon Audio this evening, and I was dumb-founded at what I was reading. Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair recently stated that Britain needs to excel in science, if it going to compete with the emerging economies of China and India. He also stated that he would be worried if the theory of creationism became mainstream in the British school system. As I pointed out at the time, the modern sciences of medicine (Pasteur), physics (Newton) and technology (Faraday) were founded upon principles formulated by Christians, who believed in a God who created the universe in six ordinary days. I also pointed out in another article, that the secular world can never permit true science to be taught in schools, for true science points to the existence of a Being evolutionists categorically deny exists. 

Well it looks like Blair was only following orders. According to this article, the Council of Europe - an unelected body of representatives from the 47 nations of the European continent - has virtually declared war on Christians and Muslims who believe in a literal 6 day creation. The article states that through the denial of evolution (pure science in the eyes of the Council), creationism could become a threat to human rights, encourages racism and extremism, and may even constitute a threat to the Council of Europe itself...

Quote: "12. The war on the theory of evolution and on its proponents most often originates in forms of religious extremism which are closely allied to extreme right-wing political movements. The creationist movements possess real political power. The fact of the matter, and this has been exposed on several occasions, is that the advocates of strict creationism are out to replace democracy by theocracy...
17. Investigation of the creationists’ growing influence shows that the arguments between creationism and evolution go well beyond intellectual debate. If we are not careful, the values that are the very essence of the Council of Europe will be under direct threat from creationist fundamentalists. It is part of the role of the Council's parliamentarians to react before it is too late.

I couldn't believe how seriously the Council of Europe is taking this. Creationists are not out to replace democracy with "theocracy", and the Council's claim that creationism threatens human rights is just plain absurd. Other spurious claims are made in the document, claiming that Darwinianism prevents racism and eugenics. 100,000 Australian aborigines, who ended up slaughtered and stuffed as museum pieces for evolutionary exhibits, would disagree. What this does show us is that fundamental Christianity is fast becoming linked with religious extremism by the political elite, and that we do not fit into this New World Order that is being set up. The Bible states that during the tribulation period, the Antichrist will work to change the laws and the times, in one last effort to stamp out God's Word. The legalization of homosexual marriage may have been the start of that, but as we can see Satan won't stop there until he has made being a Christian a criminal offence.

Daniel 7:25
And he (Antichrist) shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
