In Their Own Words VI: We’re Replacing Your Religion with Ours

[An ongoing series about the profoundly ironic theological/philosophical quotes scientists or those in academia make.]

The Humanist Manifestos were/are three official sets of papers drafted and signed separately over the course of seven decades. The first manifesto was drafted and signed by a number of high-profile atheists back in 1933. The second was ratified in 1973 and the third in 2003. The manifesto or screeds (creeds) are generally accepted as the dogma that has been summarized by atheist and humanist John J. Dunphy as a "Religion for the New Age”. John Dunphy’s exact quote as the intended aim of these manifestos (by atheists) is the following.

“…. a viable alternative [to Christianity] must be sought. That alternative is humanism. I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call “divinity” in every human being. These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist preachers, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subject they teach, regardless of the educational level— preschool, daycare, or large state university. The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the never-realized Christian ideal of “love thy neighbor” will finally be achieved. Then perhaps we will be able to say with Tom Paine that “the world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion.” It will undoubtedly be a long, arduous struggle replete with much sorrow and many tears, but humanism will emerge triumphant. It must if the family of humankind is to survive.” ~ John Dunphy-Humanist Magazine (Jan/Feb, 1983, p. 26)
Make no mistake about it, Dunphy’s statement is not a tongue-in-cheek joke or misstatement. If anything it might be a Freudian slip but not a mistake. The goal of the Humanist Manifesto and atheists in general is to replace your religion with their religion: Atheism. Atheism is a religion because it relies on metaphysics to believe what they claim. Their claim is a belief in no god and therefore a belief in self-reliance. This religion’s pinnacle and god is man or mankind. The educators today are not just viewed as teachers but priests of a pagan religion --just like Baal, Moloch and Dagon of the Old Testament. The Humanists have no intent of offering alternative views. Teaching without balance or alternative views should be considered indoctrination or propaganda

Right from the beginning it was the Humanist intent to infiltrate even the earliest educational institutes including preschool. The above statement even has the audacity to borrow principles of the Bible (love thy neighbor) and graft them into their lofty ideologies that they dare to exalt against God (2 Corinthians 10:3-5). This is done to turn their religion into a syncretistic blend of Christianity and atheism. They will then slowly phase out the Christianity until only atheism and godlessness remains.

They are intent on turning our children into atheists. To this point in time they have been moderately successful in doing so too. We need only look at how many educated atheists are produced by our colleges and universities. They have made institutionalized education into elitist temples of godlessness. Although we can clearly see this in colleges, what we have often failed to recognize is that it is also in our high schools, intermediate and even elementary schools. In correlation to this is a little known fact about one man in particular. Add to this atheist strategy the enigmatic but highly influential John Dewey.

John Dewey was an American philosopher, psychologist, and educational reformer. Dewey is one of the primary figures associated with philosophy of pragmatism. He was also a major voice of progressive education and liberalismDewey considered two fundamental human organizations —schools and civil society—as being major topics needing attention and reconstruction in the 20th century to encourage experimental intelligence in plurality. Dewey made a case for the importance of higher education not only as a place to gain content knowledge, but also as a place to learn how to live (indoctrination). So he believed in indoctrination and pluralism. In other words Dewey believed that revealed truth does not exist and that anything that can be called truth must be determined experimentally. He was an atheist and a naturalist / empiricist. 

In today’s jargon he was also what is called a postmodernist or a person that believes all truths can be true and all opinions equally valid, even though logic says otherwise. The ironic thing about Dewey’s disbelief in absolutes is that he did not extent this ideological belief to his theories on institutionalized education. According to Dewey the educational system must be infiltrated and brought into alignment with a single Humanist agenda which ruled out God and/or religion. In this way he was hypocritical and ideologically inconstant…which is the hallmark of the demonic. Saying one thing, doing another as long as it fits one's agendas. He also believed in evolution, that beliefs and morality should be examined scientifically and that change in belief is inevitable and desirable. Never mind that by saying this he is making unscientific claims about metaphysical truths using a belief system founded in the physical. In all his lofty academic intelligence he was being epistomologically self-contradictory.

The thing that makes all these facts startling is that Dewey was a Secular Humanist that had an extraordinary impact on the American educational system (and therefore American government indirectly) in the early parts of the 20th century. He was one of the original 34 signers of the first Humanist Manifesto (1933) whose intended goal was to replace your religion with theirs. At least 33 of 58 original signers of the "Secular Humanist Declaration" were educators. The most frightening fact about Dewey is that he had pervasive influence over colleges and universities (American and abroad) and he passed off his godless agenda to countless others that have affected the state controlled education of our children to this day. This is amazing considering the fact he’s been dead for half a century.

So what is the bottom-line on John Dewey and the Secular Humanist agenda in general? Simple. Dewey and the organization he was part of was demonic yeast among the leaven. A small amount of contaminant placed in the exact location at the exact time it needed to be there managed to infect everything. This blight permeated nearly every aspect of the American society/culture. It has now been firmly set in place and institutionalized and is effectively assisting in the derailment of not only morality...but truth itself. It has also made many educational institutions untrustworthy and pose a threat to our children's Christian ideologies if we send our children to them for "education". In reality, we're sending them to indoctrination. 

Humanists initially passed themselves off as not being a religion or religious but even one of their own (Dunphy) in his 1983 article affirmed this proselytizing fact. Because of this, Dewey and Secular Humanists access to our educational institutions might have independently poisoned the well of the entire American educational system (therefore a large portion of the world after World War II). Sadly, this also means that Dewey and Secular Humanists played a huge part in spreading spiritual death worldwide.
