Survival under harsh times is faith in action!

  I have never been a slave but I am sure that some of my ancestors were. I am glad that the conditions I grew up in were better. I came through a time when civil rights were violated and that wasn’t fun either. Here is a eyewitness account of their personal struggle. ” I must correct the question. “Traveling” is not exactly the word I would use. We were crammed in a cattle car and there was barely any air to breathe. There were about 100 people with no room to sit, no food, no water, and the only air was supplied by four little windows at the top of the cattle car. So the air was not that fresh either. It was the end of May, during a stretch that was very hot. During the day, that wood and metal cattle car box was heating up. Thinking back, I have no idea how we survived the trip itself in that cattle car. The conditions themselves were already deadly. In other cattle cars several people died. I think in our cattle car there was one person who died but I am not 100 percent sure. There was one bucket in the corner. It had some sheets around it and I assume this is what was used for the toilet. But because we had very little to eat and drink in those four days, I did not need to use the facilities. So that is not what I would call “traveling.” That is to me torture.
I need to explain our journey in that cattle car, because it is from my perspective unique. I have not heard a lot of people describe their own journey. We did not know where we were being taken. We were concerned and worried that we were not being taken to a labor camp in Hungary as the Hungarians told us when they put us in the cattle car at the ghetto. The train moved very fast. It seemed to me as a child that we were somehow “top priority.” It would stop only for one reason, which seemed to me like refueling. I don’t know what they were refueling on. Maybe it was steam, I don’t know. Whenever they stopped, there was some kind of mechanical thing going on. There was no reason for them to stop for us, it was something they needed to keep the train going. That was my understanding – I could be wrong. 
Anytime the train would stop, we would ask a question of the guard by our cattle car. Every single cattle car wagon had a booth by it, and in the booth was a guard with a machine gun. So we would ask the guard by our cattle car for water. We were very, very thirsty. The guard would always say, “Five gold watches.” The grown-ups gathered the gold watches and passed them through the barbed wire windows. The guard would take a bucket of water and throw it from the ground through the window. I put my cup over my head hoping to catch some water. The truth is I never got more than a few drops. I don’t believe anyone else did either. As that was happening, I wondered to myself, Why are we asking for water and giving them gold watches, when the end result is we are not getting any water? I never would have dared ask my parents why are we doing that. Now I understand  that people who are scared to death do not verbalize their thoughts. They usually turn inward. Today I understand why we were doing it. It was our only way of getting some information of where we were being taken.×60.gif
It was the end of the third day. The train stopped. We asked for water, and the answer came back in German. I was ten years old, but I instantly knew what had happened. We had crossed the border into occupied Germany (present-day Poland), therefore our Hungarian guards had changed to German. For me, that meant that the end was near and we were all going to be murdered. During the four years of occupation by the Hungarian army in my village, there were rumors that Jews were being taken to Germany to be murdered. We didn’t know where, we didn’t know how. But we had one hope that we were hanging onto: that we would never be taken to Germany. And that hope, as we crossed into occupied Germany, just vanished. Everybody in our cattle car was praying and crying, and the train moved on. It was next morning – about eight hours later. The train stopped again and we again asked for water. This time, there was no answer in any language. In my mind, I determined that this must be the final stop, and I was right. 
We heard a lot of Germans yelling orders outside, then the cattle car doors slid open. Thousands of people from our cattle car and others poured out onto a little strip of land called the selection platform. That little strip of land that measures 85 feet long by 35 feet wide – I don’t believe there is another strip of land like that anywhere on the face of this earth that has witnessed so many millions of people being ripped apart from their families forever. 
As we stepped down onto the selection platform, my mother grabbed me and my twin sister Miriam by the hand. We were her youngest children. I believe she thought that as long as she could hold onto us, she could protect us. Everything was moving very fast. After about ten minutes, in my childish curiosity I looked around trying to figure out what is this place?, when I realized my two older sisters, Edit and Aliz, and my father had disappeared into the crowd. Never, ever did I see them again. 
As we were holding onto mother, a Nazi was running and yelling in German, “Twins! Twins!” We did not volunteer any information. We had no idea what that place was and what worked there. He noticed Miriam and me because we were dressed alike and looked alike. He demanded to know if we were twins. My mother didn’t know what to say because she didn’t know if it was good. She asked, “Is that good?” The Nazi nodded yes. My mother said yes. At that moment, another Nazi came and pulled my mother in one direction. We were pulled in the opposite direction. We were crying. She was crying. All I remember is seeing her arms stretched out in despair as she was pulled away. I never even got to say goodbye to her. But I didn’t really understand that this would be the last time I would see her. All that took thirty minutes from the time we stepped down from the cattle car. Miriam and I no longer had a family. We were all alone, and we had no idea what would become of us. And all that was done to us for one simple reason: because we were born Jewish, and I did not understand why that was wrong.

War of the roses

     With their heavy casualties among the nobility, the wars are thought to have continued the changes in feudal English society caused by the effects of the Black Death, including a weakening of the feudal power of the nobles and a corresponding strengthening of the merchant classes, and the growth of a strong, centralised monarchy under the Tudors. It heralded the end of the medieval period in England and the movement towards the Renaissance.

   So many ideas about how man came to be has brought our very existence into question. Have you got a set view on our origin?
   “Until I saw a textbook from Louisiana, I didn’t fully understand what it really meant to teach evolution and Intelligent Design side-by-side. At least in the book I saw, the authors clearly implied that ID was the correct position, and used flat-out lies to discredit evolution.

For example, the textbook said that evolutionists believe that fossils’ positions within the Earth’s strata indicate the fossils’ age, with deeper fossils being older. Then it points out a “problem” with this idea: some animals can climb hills, and therefore their fossils will appear higher up than plants and animals that can’t climb. Those silly evolutionary paleontologists didn’t think of that!
Most of the “controversies” about evolution were similarly inane. Since the evidence for evolution is so strong, the textbook had to turn scientific instruction on its head, bringing in nonsense about geology, anatomy, and other fields to discredit evolution.

Even sentences that were technically accurate were written in such a way to be highly biased, e.g. “Because evolutionists don’t believe in the [Noah’s] Flood, they have to look for other explanations for fossils.” This implies that a group of scientists got together, said “We don’t like the Flood explanation… let’s concoct some alternative explanation!” That’s the exact opposite of reality, which is that the theory of evolution was based on observation, not speculation.

So, not only does ID require teaching bad science, it also requires corrupting in the scientific method itself! It essentially corrupts the entire science class. It’s true that most people don’t remember much from their science lessons. But even more important than imparting scientific information is the teaching of critical reasoning skills and the process of inquiry. And sacrificing those skills so that children will believe Intelligent Design is one of the most damaging things to science that I can think of.

ETA: I believe that the book was Science 5, 3rd ed. from BJU Press, an offshoot of Bob Jones University. This textbook is used in a number of Louisiana schools certified under the state’s voucher program. While such schools must teach to the state curriculum, the Louisiana Science Education Act of 2008 allows promoting “critical thinking skills, logical analysis, and open and objective discussion of scientific theories being studied including, but not limited to, evolution, the origins of life, global warming, and human cloning.”

How important is remembering things?

  It is strange how important throwing yourself into your reading can be. Sometimes it feels like nothing ventured and nothing gained. Someone once said how can you see the woods while looking at the forest or something like that. ” An old farmer lived on a farm in the mountains with his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading his book. One day the grandson asked, “Grandpa! I try to read the book just like you but I don’t understand it, and what I do understand I forget as soon 
as I close the book. What good does reading the book do?”
The grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied, “Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket of water.”
The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got back to the house. The grandfather laughed and said, “You’ll have to move a little faster next time,” and sent him back to the river with the basket to try again. This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty before he returned home. Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was impossible to carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket instead.  The old man said, “I don’t want a bucket of water; I want a basket of water. You’re just not trying hard enough,” and he went out the door to watch the boy try 
again. At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak out before he got back to the house.  The boy again dipped the basket into the river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was 
again empty. Out of breath, he said, “See Grandpa, it’s  useless!”
“So you think it is useless?” the old man said, “Look at the basket.” The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket and was now clean, inside and out. 
Son, that’s what happens when you read the book. You might not understand or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be changed, inside and out!!!” And you may ask the question, what’s the point of it all?
