Comment on Perspectives from alleged LSU students by DeeDee Bindernagel.

Well, it now seems clear that LSU admin. and board are going to obsfucate, drag their feet, and otherwise do nothing to remedy the situation. Now we know that “SDA” schools will not consistently show how the evidence can support the Bible. We know faith is neither a criteria for hiring or releasing teachers. We know our children are being given the world’s view as the only intelligent explanation of life and science. We know that people, even with advanced degrees, will be considered a lunitic fringe for daring to call the Bible true.

Some questions.
1. Is the Bible the basis for SDA lives?
2. Do we have any other gods before Jehovah that we are serving?
3. Are we still committed to saying with a loud voice to worship Him who made heaven and earth, the seas and the fountains of waters?
4. Is the goal of our schools to be accepted by the world or by the Word? Is it ok to backpedal our beliefs in order to gain accreditation?
5. Does one have to have a Ph.D in naturalistic science to be able to use logical processes?
6. Are the rank and file tithe-paying members to be considered outsiders who have no right to say anything about what happens at LaSierra or our other schools?
7. What should we do with administrators who show more support and loyalty to their staff than to the beliefs and will of God and those they are supposed to work for?
8. Can we find God-fearing Bible-believing administrators?
9. Should we close our schools? If an Adventist education is no longer Adventist, why keep it?

I have spent all my life supporting SDA eduation with my time, money, and energy. It is with great sadness that I have followed this discussion.

@Professor Kent: You have asked many more than one question. And when one is answered, you ask another. No one here claims to have all knowledge about the present, let alone the past but many of the questions you ask, you could find the reasonable creationist responce on the web, if you, as you have several times stated, really want to know.

thanks bob, i found that bird track article worth saving to a word document. Old saying proved again, “A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.” This won’t help those who don’t want to consider creation viable. Each time one of their accusations is explained they just go looking for another. But the article will help those who are honestly considering all the options. Thanks again

@Professor Kent: I am comfortable with fossils after the flood. It makes a lot of sense. I will say that many things both creos and evos believed got changed after the succession of events on Mt. St. Hellens so that anything stated beyond the accounts of inspiration are always tentative in my mind.

@ Professor kent – I could go on but this by Natl Geographic should do for a finale. If one looks it is easy to find a plethora of evidence. In spite of evidece not yet found, evidence kept in private collections, evidence destroyed or tamered with, or evidence about about which inaccurate conclusions have been drawn, there is volumes of it there for the looking. In the past, there were plants and animals much bigger than what we see today. -Shining
