Evolutionists Endorse Sin 12/15/2010
Dec 15, 2010 — Crime pays in Darwinism, apparently. Some biologists find good in what most of us find evil. After all, in Darwinism, evil is only an illusion.
- Corruption: Victims of corruption may have a different outlook on what Science Daily told its readers:
Francisco Úbeda, an evolutionary biology professor at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and Edgar Duéñez of Harvard University found that power and corruption may play a role in maintaining overall societal cooperation.
A report of their research is published in the journal Evolution.
- Gossip: In evolution, gossip is no longer a sin. In the wake of WikiLeaks, Live Science asked, “Is Gossip Good?” The answer is found in Darwinian theory:
Some researchers have argued that the tendency toward jawing about our neighbors is rooted in our evolutionary past. In his book “Grooming, Gossip, and the Evolution of Language,” (Harvard University Press, 1998), Oxford anthropologist Robin Dunbar argues that gossip and language evolved as primate groups got too large to bond by grooming. In other words, instead of picking lice off each other, humans buy “US Weekly.”
Darwinism is not just superfluous; it is downright evil. By turning good and evil into amoral illusions, and by making people pawns of a mythical evolutionary past, evolutionists open the door to a flood of vices. Some of Darwin’s contemporaries understood the danger his theory posed. Adam Sedgwick, his geology professor, wrote:There is a moral or metaphysical part of nature as well as a physical. A man who denies this is deep in the mire of folly. ’Tis the crown and glory of organic science that it does through final cause, link material and moral; and yet does not allow us to mingle them in our first conception of laws, and our classification of such laws, whether we consider one side of nature or the other. You have ignored this link; and, if I do not mistake your meaning, you have done your best in one or two pregnant cases to break it. Were it possible (which, thank God, it is not) to break it, humanity, in my mind, would suffer a damage that might brutalize it, and sink the human race into a lower grade of degradation than any into which it has fallen since its written records tell us of its history.Two world wars and a host of secular totalitarian dictatorships in the 20th century are the result. See What Hath Darwin Wrought? as described in the 09/27/2010. After all the social wreckage they have caused, Darwinists remain unrepentant, as the above articles show, still committed to preaching amoral ideas from the mire of folly.

"Evolution of Man. - Undoubtedly there once lived upon the earth races of men who were much lower in their mental organization than the present inhabitants. If we follow the early history of man upon the earth, we find that at first he must have been little better than one of the lower animals. He was a nomad, wandering from place to place, feeding upon whatever living things he could kill with his hands. Gradually he must have learned to use weapons, and thus kill his prey, first using rough stone implements for this purpose. As man became more civilized, implements of bronze and of iron were used. About this time the subjugation and domestication of animals began to take place. Man then began to cultivate the fields, and to have a fixed place of abode other than a cave. The beginnings of civilization were long ago, but even to-day the earth is not entirely civilized.
The Races of Man. - At the present time there exist upon the earth five races or varieties of man, each very different from the other in instincts, social customs, and, to an extent, in structure. These are the Ethiopian or negro type, originating in Africa; the Malay or brown race, from the islands of the Pacific; the American Indian; the Mongolian or yellow race, including the natives of China, Japan, and the Eskimos; and finally, the highest race type of all, the Caucasians, represented by the civilized white inhabitants of Europe and America�."
Darwin's own words betrayed his own racist views, which I have presented previously. Darwinism not only gave profligates like Julian Huxley an excuse to exercise immoral behavior, but license to slaughter other human beings who are weaker or of a different color or culture than those in power.
““[I suppose the reason] we all jumped at the Origin [Origin of Species] was because the idea of God interfered with our sexual mores.””
Charles Darwin's view of non-white races is obvious:
"...in... “The Descent Of Man”, Darwin explains that there is indeed a link between Man and Ape. During Darwin's glory years, Africa was being colonized and explored by the Europeans. This is where Darwin found his “savage” link, the Negroe of Africa. As a matter of fact, in this work by Darwin he in many ways expresses that he holds the Negroe of Africa to be BELOW the monkey. Darwin also introduced many
new and wonderful theories in the “Descent Of Man”, including racial engineering, and ethnic cleansing. These are terms, that unfortunately, we are all too familiar with today. Though reluctantly saying these ideas should not necessarily be enacted, Darwin explains that while earlier forms of men probably killed the handicapped, idiots, and racially undesirable among them, the fact that we now take care of the weaker among us, furthers our “Descent”. And we certainly know from recent history how serious some European leaders took these theories. (Can somebody say Heil?)
Here are some examples to give you a quick tour of Darwin's dementia. Keep in mind, that in the following quotes from the “Descent Of Man”, the term “Savage” is interchangeable with the “African Negroe” to whom he is referring.
Darwin on human engineering -
“With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated; and those that survive commonly exhibit a vigorous state of health. We civilized men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check the process of elimination; we build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed, and the sick; we institute poor-laws; and our medical men exert their utmost skill to save the life of every one to the last moment. There is reason to believe that vaccination has preserved thousands, who from a weak constitution would formerly have succumbed to small-pox. Thus the weak members of civilized societies propagate their kind. No one who has attended to the breeding of domestic animals will doubt that this must be highly injurious to the race of man............hardly any one is so ignorant as to allow his worst animals to breed” Page - 138-139
Darwin on monkeys and Negroes-
“For my own part I would as soon be descended from that heroic little monkey, who braved his dreaded enemy in order to save the life of his keeper, or from that old baboon, who descended from the mountains, carried away in triumph his young comrade from a crowd of astonished dogs—as from a savage who delights to torture his enemies, offers up bloody sacrifices, practices infanticide without remorse, treats his wives like slaves, knows no decency, and is haunted by the grossest superstitions” Page - 642-643
Darwin, on the future of Negroes and Australian Aborigines-
“At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace, the savage races throughout the world. At the same time the anthropomorphous apes, as Professor Schaaffhausen has remarked, will no doubt be exterminated. The break between man and his nearest allies will then be wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilized state, as we may hope, even than the Caucasian, and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of as now between the Negro or Australian and the gorilla” - Page - 162,163
Yes, Charles Darwin stole the concept of natural selection from a creationist, Edward Blyth. Blyth identified natural selection as a means of conserving the species and not being a creative force. Others did the work of identifying natural selection and Darwin misapplied it. He helped popularize racism in the Western World just as Christians were succeeding in putting an end to slavery and slave trading in Europe and the United States. Social Darwinism has been a plague on mankind ever since Darwin first published his hypothesis. I would propose to say that Charles Darwin was a plagiarizer and a man of low moral integrity, as this page makes fairly clear!
In fact, these words from that reference are worth considering, being the general worldview of Charles Darwin:
"Darwin summed up his viewpoint on natural selection in the final part of the eighth chapter of his Origin of Species, where he wrote:
". . . To my imagination it is far more satisfactory to look at such instincts as the young cuckoo ejecting it's foster brothers (from the nest),-ants making slaves-the larvae of ichneumonide feeding with the live bodies of the caterpillars,-not as especially endowed or created instincts, but as one general law leading to the advancement of all organic beings [mankind included],-namely, multiply, vary, let the strongest live and the weakest die." (Origin, final paragraph of Chapter Eight on Instinct, 6th edition)
We find Darwin's outlook on his role as a naturalist and what he thought of the delicate balance of nature when he wrote in 1856, upon beginning his Origin:
"What a book a devil's chaplain might write on the clumsy, wasteful, blundering low and horridly cruel works of nature." (25)"
Which is the morally superior statement? Which is closer to the TRUTH, in your opinion?
A Christian acknowledges God, the Creator and Designer of all that we see and know. Each day we learn more about the intricate and amazing designs found in nature and the fantastic amount of information required to make them work properly. God should amaze us as we learn more and more about the brilliance of His designs as expressed in nature, even in a world that is fallen and running downhill.
A Darwinist is a god onto himself, but this is nothing new, man has been making gods clay and stone and wood and especially he has tended to take the title for himself. You who speak with authority against God and His works will find your fate described in Psalms 82...
Psalm 82A psalm of Asaph.
1 God presides in the great assembly;
he renders judgment among the “gods”:
2 “How long will you defend the unjust
and show partiality to the wicked?
3 Defend the weak and the fatherless;
uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.
4 Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
5 “The ‘gods’ know nothing, they understand nothing.
They walk about in darkness;
all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
6 “I said, ‘You are “gods”;
you are all sons of the Most High.’
7 But you will die like mere mortals;
you will fall like every other ruler.”
8 Rise up, O God, judge the earth,
for all the nations are your inheritance.
