"A constitutional democracy is in serious trouble if its citizenry does not have a certain degree of education and civic virtue."
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."Phillip E. Johnson on Nelson Mandela
"The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education."Phillip E. Johnson on Albert Einstein
"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."Phillip E. Johnson on Aristotle
"My mother said I must always be intolerant of ignorance but understanding of illiteracy. That some people, unable to go to school, were more educated and more intelligent than college professors."Phillip E. Johnson on Maya Angelou
"Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught."Phillip E. Johnson on Oscar Wilde
"Some theists in evolutionary science acquiesce to these tacit rules and retain a personal faith while accepting a thoroughly naturalistic picture of physical reality."
"The monopoly of science in the realm of knowledge explains why evolutionary biologists do not find it meaningful to address the question whether the Darwinian theory is true."
"The restriction of religion to private life therefore does not necessarily threaten the vital interests of the majority religion, if there is one, and it protects minority religions from tyranny of the majority."
"Evolutionary naturalism takes the inherent limitations of science and turns them into a devastating philosophical weapon: because science is our only real way of knowing anything, what science cannot know cannot be real."
"So one reason the science educators panic at the first sign of public rebellion is that they fear exposure of the implicit religious content in what they are teaching."
