Darwin and Evolution
DARWINS THEORY OF EVOLUTION
If by evolution you mean "change over time" within a species then sure, evolution exists. If by evolution you mean living species become other species—Darwinism—then evolution is false.
Millions of high school textbooks still include illustrations of Haeckel's Embryos, even though they are fake and have been known to be fake for decades. The reason they are still in textbooks is that Darwinist use them as evidence for the Theory of Evolution.
The main point of Darwinism is that all species descended from other species. Why then, has no human being, in thousands of years, ever seen any evidence of this? Even scientists now know that most species we see on Earth appeared spontaneously in the "Cambrian Explosion. "
Darwin wrongly assumed that since microevolution is observable—changes within a species as it adapts to changing environs—that macroevolution must be happening—one species changing into another.
There is zero evidence that Darwin was correct, after 150 years of steady investigation. Not even simple bacteria change species. But species changing into other species is taught to your children as scientific fact.
ORIGIN OF MAN
Biology textbooks teach your children that it is a fact they are descended from apes, without a speck of proof provided. Textbooks include supposed evidence to support Darwinism that has been long discredited, but not removed. Some school districts fight back against this nonsense.
In 2002, Cobb County, Georgia, approved this sticker for science textbooks: "This textbook contains material on evolution. Evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered."
That sounds reasonable enough to me. But not to Atheists. The ACLU, of course, filed suit and won! A federal judge, believe or not, ruled that this sticker violated the First Amendment—that is, constituted the United States Congress establishing a state religion.
The college textbook Evolution says this: "Evolution is a scientific fact. That is, the descent of all species, with modification, from common ancestors is a hypothesis that in the last 150 years or so has been supported by so much evidence, and has so successfully resisted all challenges, that it has become fact." I am telling you folks: that is a lie. Darwinism is not supported by any evidence.
According to the series Evolution on Public Broadcasting Television, paid for with taxpayer dollars, Darwin was shut out of American schools from 1925 to 1957—from the Scopes Monkey Trial to Sputnik. Then "long neglected science programs were revived in America's classrooms."
If America suffered from a lack of Darwin you wouldn't know it from the fact that America produced more Nobel Prize winners than the rest of the world combined from 1925-1957; and more than twice as many as the rest of the world combined in physiology and medicine.
Atheists can't believe Darwinism is even a subject of debate, in spite of holes in the Theory of Evolution large enough to drive a truck through.
Atheists claim that Darwinism is the foundation of modern biology. That is false. The fact is, molecular biology, biochemistry, and physiology ignore Darwin's theory altogether. None of the major biological breakthroughs of the 20th century derived any benefit or advancement because of the Theory of Evolution. But advocates of evolution try to take credit for all the advances in science, which is intellectual larceny.
ORIGIN OF LIFE
Since there is no evidence for Darwinism, Atheists fall back on scientific consensus. The American Association of University Professors, founded by Atheists, says: "The Theory of Evolution is all but universally accepted in the community of scholars." But 761 Ph.D. scientists have signed the Dissent from Darwinism statement.
The American people overwhelmingly reject Darwinism, despite its monopoly on the classroom for decades. The response by Atheists is to state that the American People are scientifically illiterate. But America is the most scientifically successful country in history.
Atheists will defend Darwin to the death because Darwinism must be true for Divine Creation to be false. The revered Atheist Carl Sagan explained the preposterousness of this: "We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs . . . because we have made a prior commitment to materialism." Materialism: the belief that nothing exists except matter.
Now it becomes clear. By starting with the belief that nothing exists except matter, we must believe in Darwinism, in spite of no evidence for it, and plenty of evidence against it. As one famous geneticist explained, "We cannot allow a divine foot in the door."
The fact is that Darwin's predictions about what science would uncover regarding the fossil record, embryo patterns, and molecular biology, have been proven false. Nothing about Darwinism can be proven through observation or experimentation—the supposed bedrocks of science.
As Ernst Chain, discoverer of penicillin, Nobel Prize winner, and a man who contributed more to mankind than perhaps any other person in the last 100 years said in 1972: "The Darwin theory of evolution . . . is based on such flimsy assumptions . . . that it can hardly be called a theory. . . . I would rather believe in fairies than in such wild speculation."
ORIGIN OF LIFE ON EARTH
Darwinism is taught to children in public schools as proven fact about the origin of life on Earth. It is an Atheistic world view that teaches all life evolved from a soup of chemicals.
Charles Darwin said, "I hope I did a good job of destroying God." It is not designed to find truth, but to disprove God exists.
Because children are indoctrinated into Darwinism, 40 percent of Americans today believe in both God and Darwin; 10 percent believe only in Darwin; 50 percent believe God created the world without evolution. According to Darwinism man has no soul, he is not a spiritual being, because apes are not spiritual beings.
Darwinism is not supported by scientific evidence. It is only taught to our children because it supports Atheism. A Godless universe is a universe without meaning. Darwin claimed that elemental atoms became living cells in a flash, all by themselves, from a warm little pond. But we know that living things only come from living things.
Darwinism claims that this first living cell slowly mutated into all of the life we see on Earth today. But we have billions of fossils and nary a one shows any species mutating into a different species. If species do not mutate into other species—a reptile into a rat, a fish into a bird, an ape into a human being—then Darwinism is false.
Why then do science textbooks, public school teachers, and science programs on television—many produced with taxpayer dollars—teach us that Darwinism is proven fact?
A strong majority of Americans want the theory of evolution taught along with the Genesis account of Creation in public schools, so children can think through it and decide for themselves what to believe. 90 percent of Americans believe God was involved in the Creation of the universe, but Darwinist describe them as an extreme minority who want to foist their religious beliefs on children.
DNA contains intelligent information. Intelligent information must come from somewhere. No Darwinists can explain away this truth. But try they do. The official position of the National Association of Biology Teachers is: "The diversity of life on earth is the outcome of evolution." This is how Darwin sought to eliminate belief in God.
As the prominent Atheist Richard Dawkins writes: "The whole point of the theory of evolution was to provide an non-miraculous account of the existence of life."
The maniacal support of Darwinism comes from Atheists. They have made the teaching of Darwinism politically correct.
Darwin was in fact both racist and sexist.
DNA can be likened to computer software, though far more advanced than anything human beings have ever dreamed up. Software always has a designer behind it.
We have learned from DNA that the key to life is not in atoms and molecules, but in information. Informational sequences can only be created by intelligence—it cannot and does not occur naturally. The message in the DNA transcends the material medium.
DNA carries complex specific instructions. It has all the hallmarks of intelligent design. There is no other plausible explanation for DNA.
Darwinists reject this idea because to admit that there could be intelligent design admits the idea that there could be a Creator God. No matter what the evidence is, Atheists cannot allow any discussion of this possibility. So, they refuse to allow any idea opposed to Darwinism to be published in peer-reviewed science journals; then claim intelligent design is not science because it is not in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Catch 22.
Every living machine on earth appears to be designed. We study their designs. To Darwinists, this apparent design is an illusion. The reason is that design implies a designer of transcendent intelligence—a Creator God.
Human beings are incredibly creative. It is no wonder why if we are made in the Image of a God who can create a universe such as we live in.
Charles Darwin was completely ignorant about the inner workings of the cell. We know now that living cells are highly efficient microscopic machines and precisely integrated biochemical systems.
Darwin wrote: "If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down."
We now know of living creatures, such as flagella, that are indeed irreducibly complex—that do not function unless all of its parts are present.
Atheists take two tracks of attack against intelligent design. They claim both that it can't be tested, and that it has been tested and proven false.
Today, some biology textbooks do mention intelligent design but only to misrepresent it and deprecate it as pseudoscience or phony science. Even the beloved Wikipedia calls the possibility that the universe is designed rather than purely an accident a phony science.
Some professors use a trumped up version of intelligent design with the stated aim of "converting Christian students to Atheism." That is your tax dollars—and tuition dollars—at work.
Darwinists are condescending and mean-spirited. As William Rusher writes: "One can't help being a little surprised at the sheer savagery of the evolutionists' attack on Intelligent Design. One thinks of scientists as calm, intelligent people, perhaps wearing white smocks, who take on questions to which we don't know the answers, think about them carefully, and test various explanations experimentally until they come up with one that solves the problem. But that hasn't been the reaction of evolutionists to Intelligent Design at all. They have all but bitten themselves in two to drive it straight out of the realm of serious discussion."
When college professors say the most outrageous things, they are immediately defended on the grounds of academic freedom.
This concept means—according to the American Association of University Professors— that "Freedom of faculty members to express views, however unpopular or distasteful, is an essential condition of an institution of higher learning that is truly free." The AAUP use this concept to defend Ward Churchill, for one example, when he said the victims of 9-11 were "little Eichmanns."
Academic freedom has one exception: you cannot stray from the Darwinist Creed. Universities prohibit the expression of "views that differ from evolution" in science courses. The director of the AAUP agrees because, in regard to views opposed to Darwinism, "Academic freedom is not a license to teach anything you like."
Plenty of scientists have reached the conclusion that the universe, earth, man, and all living creatures bear the marks of intelligent design. Every one of them is pilloried with insults and ridicule by the Atheists in charge of the scientific community with a level of hostility and vitriol usually reserved for child molesters or mass murderers.
But intelligent design has not been refuted by any evidence. There are Atheist scientists who agree with intelligent design—but attribute it not to a Creator God but to aliens from outer space.
Academic freedom is only for Atheists. If word gets out that a scientist is a Christian, all of his subsequent research is viewed suspiciously. After all, he must have an agenda. But do Atheists have an agenda?
Prominent Atheist and proud Moral Nihilist William Provine can explain his attachment to Darwinism. He calls it a "the greatest engine of Atheism ever invented." This is interesting because the Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that Atheism is a religion.
What is a religion? A set of beliefs about the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe. Atheism and Darwinism certainly qualify.
ATHEISM PROMOTED IN THE CLASSROOM
Atheists will most certainly lie through their teeth to protect their monopoly on the classroom.
In the famous 1999 Kansas case, the state Board of Education was pressured by Atheists to teach students that all life comes from macroevolution, from a common ancestor, from natural causes, life simply appeared out of nowhere—which is simply not true. In response, the school board refused.
The Atheists lied to the press that the School Board had decided not to teach evolution anymore, and was going to mandate the teaching of the Genesis Creation story, which they knew to be a complete and total lie. In the ensuing uproar one news commentator said the "Taliban" had taken over Kansas schools.
In 2002, the Ohio State Board of Education stated that evolutionary theory should be critically analyzed by students. That's all.
One newspaper wrote that the only people who would possible favor a critical analysis of evolutionary theory were "know-nothing fanatics intent on twisting science to accommodate their pet biblical phrases." Another said "State OKs curriculum involving Creationism." Another said "knuckle dragging ignoramuses were waging a jihad against real science."
Paul Myers, a professor at the university of Minnesota, said this about anyone who opposes Darwinism: "The only appropriate response should involved some form of righteous fury, much butt kicking, and the public firing of some teachers, many school board members, and vast numbers of sleazy right-wing politicians. It's time for scientists to break out the steel-toed boots and brass knuckles, and get out there and hammer on the lunatics and idiots."
The Dover, Pennsylvania case takes the cake. The school board there decided that the one week course on Darwinism should include five minutes to discuss intelligent design. Their statement said "Because Darwin's Theory is a theory, it continues to be tested as new evidence is discovered. The Theory is not a fact. Gaps in the Theory exist for which there is no evidence." That last sentence is absolutely true.
The ACLU filed suit against the school board. A federal judge prohibited the school from teaching anything but the false theory that is Darwinism. The implication is that to question Darwinism is unconstitutional. No open inquiry is allowed.
THE WAR ON RELIGION
Before Charles Darwin, nearly every famous scientists in the world was also a Christian. Science and Faith were not at all at odds. It was Darwinism that declared war on God; not the other way around.
33 percent of the people in the world are Christians; 21 percent are Muslim; 14 percent are Hindu. Darwinism is designed to destroy the faith of them all, on behalf of the 2 percent of the people in the world who are Atheists.
It intends to accomplish this by rejecting God. Since Christianity is the dominate religion of Western Civilization, it is the focus of the hate projected by Atheists.
Richard Dawkins calls the Christian Faith "one of the world's great evils, comparable to the smallpox virus." There is no conflict whatsoever between religion and science. There is a major conflict between Darwinism and Christianity.
Darwinism was central to the Atheistic world view of Soviet Russia.
Billions of dollars in taxpayer funds are used each year to promote the false god of Darwinism.
Atheists make all kinds of wild claims. One prominent Atheist politician said recently than any opposition to Darwinism threatens "hundreds of years of scientific discovery." Really?
Pray tell, exactly what scientific discovery is linked to Darwinism? Who threatens hundreds of years of scientific discoveries? "People who simply disregard the facts."
What facts? That life was born spontaneously in a primordial soup all by itself, naturally, and that all life since came from that soup. Is that a fact? Where is your evidence?
The response to a demand for evidence is met with: "It boggles the mind that in this country we still debate evolution, ignoring science and common sense."
The facts Atheists most want your children to understand is that there is no God; you have no soul; you are not a spiritual being.
According to Darwinism, we are merely animals. Should we not then be treated as such? This led to the eugenics movement, which led to forced sterilization, abortion, and infanticide.
Evidence of intelligent design is not based on faith, but it has implications for faith.
DARWIN AND EVOLUTION
The Darwinian idea of progress spawned the Progressive Political Movement, based on the idea that man is still evolving.
I recently watched the wonderful series on the Discovery Channel entitled "Life." Millions of children were watching. It was all great until the last episode on apes and monkeys. Narrator Oprah Winfrey went on and on about how these animals were our close relatives and after a while, she started referring to them as "we."
As Darwinism falls apart, expect Atheists to become increasingly nasty about its demise. As author Orson Scott Card says, their reactions are "illogical, personal, and unscientific" as they resort to "credentialism" and "expertism." Card notes: "Real science never has to resort to credentialism. If someone with no credentials at all raises a legitimate question, it is not an answer to point out how uneducated or unqualified the questioner is. In fact, it is pretty much an admission that you don't have an answer, so you want the questioner to go away. It's the 'trust us you fools' defense. Essentially, Darwinists tell the general public that we're too dumb to understand."
Is there a spiritual force animating this hoax that is Darwinism? Is evil a presence or an absence? If there is a Satan—and I believe there is—he is the Deceiver of Mankind, and the Father of Lies.
