Resolution 1580 (2007)/18/cmt/en
18. 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 of Europe’s parliamentarians to react before it is too late.
- beyond intellectual debate - Any ignorant political constellation, for example the Council of Europe, can get in mind to start to believe in the religious naturalistic world view of the evolutionists, and with big zealousness and without sustainable evidence or valid arguments try to force also others with their ill-founded conviction. If one gets involved in a controversy with such evolution fundamentalists, will that then by implication end up "well beyond intellectual debate"? We are tempted to agree with the Council of Europe on such a thought. (RIL)
- the very essence of the Council of Europe … under direct threat - The very essence of the Council of Europe of course have nothing to do with evolution. If “the essence” for the Council of Europe is constituted by faith in evolution then that loose sand should immediately be dug out and be replaced with a more permanent foundation. Free persons choose the basis for their values entirely without the involvement of politicians. And moreover, we believe that only the truth can set people free. This liberty is now threatened openly by the Council of Europe with its impudent resolution. Or does the threat perhaps indicate that we are approaching the apocalypse, perhaps in a stage and to an extent which was in the bible's Book of Revelation denoted by a compound political/ social/ economic/ religious system which, in a seemingly legal way, tried to conduct such influence and all encompassing control of the citizens that it in an indirect way makes it possible to control of people's ways of thinking, and other living conditions? The Council of Europe here really invites us to think the biggest of thoughts, and to wake up and discover that The Power suddenly felt threatened! Once again the freedom of thought amongst the most peaceful, although the unruliest of citizens, is experienced as a "threat" (see also Daniel 3:17,18) (RIL)
- react before it is to late - If the Council of Europe had reacted when the creation account statement was penned down by Moses, or when the Christendom was spread to Europe for about two thousand years ago then they had been in moderately good time, but now the Council of Europe reacts rather late. This entire paragraph of course consists only of scaremongering propaganda. It sounds like it was written by an atheist being afraid of losing his faith, or a careless Christian which is not ready to prove all things and desperately holding on to a private biblical view instead of examining facts and his thoughts. Since the Council of Europe doesn’t want to allow a free debate it is clear that it is their attitude which is the real threat. It becomes more and more obvious that it really isn't science that needs to be protected, but rather man's liberties. Please react before it is too late. (MM/RIL)
