Vilified, Christian head who claimed evolution is not a fact, just a theory

A head teacher has been mocked online for dismissing evolution as just a theory and claiming that the Bible's account of creation has more evidence to support it. Christina Wilkinson's apparent suggestion that belief in creationism is as valid as scientific fact was labelled 'horrifying' and 'embarrassing'. There were also calls for her to resign as head of her Church of England school. Mrs Wilkinson, 43, made the comments on her personal Twitter account in response to an online discussion about science and religion in schools. She tweeted: 'Evolution is not a fact. That's why it's called a theory! There's more evidence that the Bible is true.' Replies on Twitter described her as 'stupid and ignorant'. One critic, Christopher Anton, said: 'Please can Ofsted come and inspect this school's science now. Headmaster hasn't a clue about scientific process.' James Taylor said: 'She should resign as a head teacher, leave education and join the clergy'. Fergus Mason said: '
Teaching creationism to kids is child abuse.' Mrs Wilkinson, head of St Andrew's Primary School in Oswaldwistle, Lancashire, had to issue a statement assuring parents of her commitment to teach the national curriculum. Soon afterwards her Twitter post was removed and her account deleted. However, some social media users said she had been right to voice her opinion and hit out at online bullies calling for her to go. Mrs Wilkinson had used Twitter to respond to Tom Sherrington, a London head teacher and a trustee of the National Baccalaureate Trust who writes a blog on education. He wrote: 'For me, it is critical that teachers do not water down the science to accommodate religious perspectives if that means sacrificing the acceptance of evidence. New Earth creationism and more subtle variants of Intelligent Design are a denial of science and I think all teachers need to be conscious of that.' Mr Sherrington, whose supporters include atheist scientist Richard Dawkins, also wrote on his blog: 'Evolution is a fact. It is a theory that is supported by many layers of evidence and it is as secure a theory as almost any other we have in science. Creationism as we all know, has no basis in science but is promoted through religious conviction. 'If I found a member of staff at my school was promoting creationism I'd have words. It's like teaching the wrong maths on purpose - to satisfy your personal beliefs.' In response to Mrs Wilkinson's views, Mr Sherrington tweeted: 'Sigh. I sincerely hope your students aren't told that. Take them to a natural history museum.' Blackburn Diocesan Board of Education said yesterday: 'As a diocese we state all schools should teach the full national curriculum which includes adaptation of plants and animals and that adaption may lead to evolution.'  Ken Moss, cabinet member for education on Hyndburn Council, said: 'I don't think we should be promoting any religious text as more scientifically accurate than hundreds of years of detailed study.' In her statement, Mrs Wilkinson said: 'I'd like to make it clear that we teach the full national curriculum in school and that our pupils receive a fully rounded education. The comment in question was made using my personal Twitter account and represents my own views.' The row comes after figures obtained by the British Humanist Association showed last year that creationism was still being taught in dozens of faith schools.

TCE:  'Tragically', teacher Christina expressed orthodox Christian beliefs about the origins of life and subsequently suffered the usual abuse expected from the mentally challenged in the UK today!  Few people investigate seriously the beliefs that they claim as theirs - if they did they would find that the 'Evolution Theory' is not even a theory.  It is a hypothesis and the evidence to ensure that it becomes a theory has not been found.  Two main features that Darwin admitted would reveal his hypothesis to be false have been found and they are (1) complete lack of fossil evidence for the supposed transitional phases that all species should leave if his hypothesis was true; (2) more than one species has been found that could not possibly have been formed by slow, gradual changes.  However, while Darwin admitted this, his disciples refuse to believe that he might have feet of clay and have spent the last ~150 years trying to bolster his failed hypothesis.  Strangely, this is exactly the same process followed by (other) false religions, e.g. the Mormons & Jehovah's Witnesses - this claim/prophecy failed so this is why our 'prophet' was wrong.  It is no more that the 'Emperor's New Clothes' deception - believe it or everyone will think you are an idiot.  If the people of the world ever want to hear a real debate about the issues some of them foolishly accept as settled, they should request that an authority, such as Jacob James Prasch (of Moriel Ministries), be allowed to publicly debate with some deputised evolutionist on worldwide TV.  Jacob has degrees in Science and Theology and is more than qualified to debate such men as 'Professor Tricky Dicky Dawkins'.  However, as Jacob said publicly many years ago: 'Whenever there is a debate on TV (about evolutionism versus creationism) you will see an Oxbridge Professor aligned against a Christian pig-farmer from Arkansas!'  That is the only reason evolutionists think they have Christians on the run - on a level playing field we would easily see where the truth really lies - and who is a false prophet and also a liar!

Teacher 'plotted to take her 3 children to join their jihadi dad'

A Muslim convert planned to travel to Syria with her three young children to join their jihadi father, a court heard. Trainee maths teacher Lorna Moore's husband Sajid Aslam was one of a group of friends who had left the West Midlands to join Islamic State, the Old Bailey was told. At the time of his departure, Moore, 33, who was brought up a Protestant in Northern Ireland, had taken her children on a Butlins holiday in Skegness but maintained contact with Aslam, 34, via Skype, the court heard. On his arrival in Syria, supply teacher Aslam sent a 'triumphant' coded message to his friend Ayman Shaukat, 27, in the form of a YouTube video of a song entitled I Made It by the pop band Cash Money Heroes, it is claimed. Within months, Moore had booked flights to Palma, Majorca, but her final destination was given away in a text from another couple who had embarked on a journey towards Syria, saying 'see you there', jurors were told. Moore then set about renting out her house, selling televisions and a car, applying for passports and visiting family in her native Belfast, the court heard. Prosecutor Julian Christopher QC said: 'The plan was for Miss Moore to take the children via an innocuous destination to be reunited with their father.' But it was scuppered when two members of their group, Alex Nash and his wife Yousma Jan, were arrested in Turkey and police swooped on Moore's home in Walsall, the court heard. Jacob Petty, 25, a Muslim convert also known as Abu Yaqood Britany, was the first of the group to travel to Syria in July 2014. He was killed before the year was out. He was swiftly joined by his old school friend Isaiah Siadatan, leaving behind his wife and two children. It is unknown whether he is still alive. Shaukat took Aslam to the airport on August 23 and a few days later he sent the link to the pop video, indicating he had made it to Syria, the court heard. In October, Aslam confided in Shaukat that it can been 'tough at times in my new job but it's all in a good cause'. On November 4, Nash, 22, also a Muslim convert, and his young wife allegedly set off for Syria but were sent back to the UK by the Turkish authorities. They had sent a text message to Moore saying: 'See you there. May the peace of Allah be upon you xxx.' Mr Christopher said: 'The prosecution suggest a clear picture emerges from the evidence - this was a group of friends all intent on going out to Syria to fight for Isis.' Moore denies failing to disclose information about acts of terrorism that might have helped secure the apprehension of Aslam. Shaukat, of Walsall, denies two counts of preparing for terrorist acts and one of possessing a document on waging jihad. Nash has admitted he was planning to go to Syria and pleaded guilty to preparing acts of terrorism, while Siadatan's wife Kerry Thomason has admitted helping her husband. The trial continues.

TCE: Which action do you think brought about the greatest vilification in contemporary UK?

Sadly, just like a large section of Europe and the USA, people are sleep-walking to oblivion with the wiles of Papal Rome pulling strings in the background while Islam makes the most predictable of moves, yet still our leaders invite the sources of >99.9% of all terrorism into our bosoms while we pay for them to do it.  Recent figures suggest there are now about 42 million Muslims in Europe and ~80% are living on benefits - i.e. we pay them to come here and attack the weak and vulnerable while, if only 0.1% decide to follow their religion as Muhammad knew it, we will have 42,000 terrorists paid to just sit and plot our deaths!

If you are not safe in the arms of Jesus you have a limited time to do the works of righteousness and believe in Him before night comes:

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost (Titus 3v5; King James Version)

It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the middle of the night or toward daybreak. (Luke 12v38; New International Version)

51 And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, 52 And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. 53 And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem. 54 And
when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? 55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. 56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village. (Luke 9v51-56; King James Version)

God sent His Son to die for us so that we WILL go to heaven if we believe in Him; Allah wants you to send your son to die for him and then you will go to Hell because Allah is Satan disguised as the 'Moon god' (and this is why Islam has the 'moon crescent' as its symbol)!

It really is a 'no-brainer' to recognise that it is the God of the Bible who loves you - and that the 'god' that is Allah hates you and wants to see you suffer!
