It has been said that John Dewey had a greater influence on our public school system than any other man in the twentieth century. John Dewey was also an avid humanist who believed that truth did not exist.

John Dewey was one of the first signers of the Humanist Manifesto in 1933. This document began with the foundational assumption that evolution explains all of reality and that God has no place in the affairs of mankind. John Dewey almost single-handedly transformed the American educational system to conform with these humanistic ideas. Building upon the foundation that John Dewey laid, both the Bible and prayer were banned from public schools shortly after his death. John Dewey was also responsible for promoting evolution in the American educational system, which has resulted in the current situation where no other alternatives are allowed.

After Bible reading and prayer were removed from public schools in the early 1960's, every indicator of social decay began to increase. In the two decades following this removal of absolute moral authority from public schools, the nation's divorce rate increased 100%, drug use increased 500%, violent crime increased 350%, unwed pregnancies climbed 500%, standardized test scores dropped 18 years in a row, premarital sex zoomed 1000%, and suicide increased 250%.

Are any of these trends surprising, once the source of moral standards (the Bible) was eliminated from schools? The absolute truths of the Bible are the only thing that tie moral reality to the physical world.
