Miraculous Milestones with William J. Federer

Is the cancel culture attempting to cancel God from academia?

Students risk being failed, and teachers fear termination if they openly acknowledge a Creator!

Yet many of the pioneers in science believed in a Creator?

NEWTON wrote more on the Book of Daniel and Bible prophecies than on science. He wrote: “This most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel ... of an intelligent and powerful Being ... whom I call the ‘Lord God’”
