The moral components for justice are universal. Individuals and nations that continually violate justice self-destruct early. Valid laws are representative of a moral standard. Liberals are free to scoff about creation, but God is man’s Benefactor and the gift of life itself is a miracle. The issue is not God. The issue is the deception of Satan and man’s failure to uphold the laws of creation that sustain the miracle of life. Fifteen American Principles that enable governments to uphold justice are briefed in my notes.

The following summary by Dr. Henry M. Morris briefs education doctrine historically held by Harvard University and other American schools for some two hundred or more years,“The foundation of education must be threefold: (1) God as Creator of all things; (2) Christ as Redeemer of all things; (3) The Holy Spirit, through the Scriptures which He inspired, as Revealer of all things. The ‘on-tological Trinity,’ as it has been called, is necessarily the basis of all reality . . ..” (Dr. Henry M. Morris, Ph.D., Education for the Real World, Creation Life Publishers, 1978, p. 24).

And then… Charles Darwin’s theory is published, The Origin of the Species. It greatly offended Adam Sedgwick, one of his professors at Cambridge University. Sedgwick took issue with Darwin’s Origin book, “There is a moral or metaphysical part of nature as well as a physical . . .. It greatly shocked my moral taste.” Sedgwick elaborated in a passage that proved prophetic: “A man who denies this is deep in the mire of folly. ‘Tis the crown and glory of organic sciences that it does through final cause, link material to moral [morality] . . .. If humanity broke this distinction it would suffer a damage that might brutalize it—and sink the human race into a lower grade of degradation than any into which it has fallen since its written records tell us of its history.”

Dr. Allan R. Sandage is believed to be the most influential astronomer of the last half-century. Sandage is credited with founding the discipline of observational cosmology. As Edwin Hubble’s star student, he took over Dr. Hubble’s mission to measure the universe’s expansion and, through those measurements, to determine the physics of the cosmic creation. He focused on the moral or metaphysical part of nature as well as the physical saying, “Science makes explicit the quite incredible natural order [laws of nature], the interconnections at many levels between the laws of physics, the chemical reactions in the biological processes of life, etc. But science can answer only a fixed type of question. It is concerned with the what, when and how. It does not, and indeed cannot, answer within its method, as powerful as that method is, why. Why is there something instead of nothing? Why do all electrons have the same charge and mass? Why is the design that we see everywhere so truly miraculous? Why are so many processes so deeply interconnected?”

Indeed. Why? Dr. Sandage continued, “Those who deny God at the outset by some form of circular reasoning will never find God. Science illumines brightly, but only a part of reality.”
