What are the true implications of Darwinism/Humanism? History, Our Founding Fathers and Kim Sandy speak the truth. Will you hear it?

The testimony of history...Oh, what foolishness is associated with Darwinism!  The evil and depravity of evolution applied to society destroys it.  Darwinism is the philosophy that rewards pride and sexual deviancy and the coveting of the property of others.  What is Communism/Socialism but the taking of goods from the productive to give them to the unproductive?  It rewards laziness and ignorance.  It promotes tyrants.  It depends upon ignorance and greed.   There is a world of Al Gores and Al Sharptons pretending to care about others while simply growing their own bank accounts.  Can you name one good thing Jesse Jackson, Jr has accomplished?   Other than publicly disdaining the victims of Benghazi and standing for every stupid and idiotic Communist agenda out there, what good is Hilary Clinton?  Oh, yes, there are so many politicians who claim to care for the poor and needy while living like kings and queens on YOUR money.  
 
"Progressive" Democrats and RINOs want to give citizenship to illegal aliens because they expect the millions of new and uneducated voters will vote for them as they establish a new society that is modeled on the old Soviet Union.  The dumber the voters, the more likely they fall for the sizzle and fail to inspect the steak (which turns out to be baloney)!

"Progressive" Democrats and RINOs support baby-murdering as a "right" of the mother to "choose" to kill our most innocent and helpless citizens.  How different is that from Hitler's desire to "choose" to kill Jews and Christians and political enemies and handicapped people?  

"Progressive" Democrats and RINOs support the oxymoron that is "gay marriage" while spitting in the face of God and the tradition and religious sacrament of the joining of man and woman established from the very first couple and on down through history.  They can pass all the laws and make all the legal proclamations they want,  two members of the same sex can no more marry than they can reproduce!   It is an abomination and it is only the tip of an evil iceberg.   Pedophiles are waiting to push for the "right" to "marry" children and then eventually people will try to call a three-way relationship a "marriage" and who can say you cannot "marry" a horse or a dog or a dead body?

"Progressive" thinking is actually regressive.   This kind of immorality dates from long ago, and God flooded the entire planet once to stop it.   Another time God rained fire and brimstone down on an area (Sodom and Gomorrah) to put an end to it.   He sent his people to wipe out such a depraved society when the Children of Israel marched into Canaan.   But they did not do this, they let some of the people live and thereby did not wipe out all the baby-murderers and temple prostitutes and other practitioners of evil.   Therefore the Jews were eventually corrupted, conquered and carried away to Babylon.  The powerful empire of Israel ruled by King Solomon became a wasteland that God would eventually allow His people to come back and rebuild as a shadow of its former glory.   

Jerusalem would be rebuilt but Israel would never be powerful again and would eventually be overrun...until the Balfour Declaration of 1917 eventually led to the establishment of a new nation of Israel.   But this Israel is a small island of freedom surrounded by bloodthirsty Islamic enemies.  As America throws away its goodness and greatness, Israel realizes it is losing a valuable ally and we may see a nuclear war begin in the Middle East.   Barack Obama may like blowing things and people up with drones, but he never targets the real enemies.  He even made the killing of Osama Bin Laden into a political victory at the expense of actual tactical and informational advantages and left the poor Pakistani doctor who clued us in to be imprisoned and tortured and probably eventually killed in a Pakistani jail.  By leaking the identity of Seal Team Six, he signed death warrants for many of those men as well.  Anyone in the world of espionage knows that information you glean that the enemy doesn't know you have is the most valuable and that the hardest thing to develop is human intelligence agents.  Obama gave away the intelligence advantage and threw our brave doctor to the dogs!   Yes, that is the kind of thing a Christian would never do.  Just exactly what Barack Obama is, other than a man who despises America and loves to live like a king, only God knows.  But he has harmed the United States more than 50 Hurricane Katrinas could accomplish, for he has helped degrade our basic morality, our credit rating, our ability to defend and secure our borders and our reputation with our allies, those we still have.

Islamoterrorists with nuclear weaponry?   The USA is letting it happen without doing anything but waving hands and producing hot air.  The UN is more concerned about finding ways to keep Third World countries from becoming developed enough to compete with the "haves" while finding ways to skim riches from aid to poorer nations and promoting junk science like Anthropic Global Warming.

Rome did not fall because of bread and circuses.   It fell because of the decline of the entire society.  All forms of tyranny eventually fail but mankind keeps establishing new governments with powerful central authority and a large percentage of the population on the government dole and seemingly happy with a lazy poverty.   Is this what America will become?  Russia is now a land of impoverished people drowning their sorrows in vodka, selling their bodies for the money to live or involved in crime and various combinations thereof.  Some of the most serious internet trojan/worm/virus/malware attacks are the result of organized crime gangs in the former Soviet Union area of the world, setting up and taking down servers and robbing you without your awareness.   Your computer may be part of a botnet and you have no idea it is being commandeered and utilized...you just know it got slower somehow and, unless you are computer-savvy, will just purchase useless stuff you saw advertised on television to try to fix what you do not even know is not broken but rather stolen!

Hitler WAS a Darwinist, a Socialist/Fascist, a Tyrant and maniacally drunk on power.   But as that page demonstrates, the concept of evolution was crucial to the philosophy of Hitler and his cronies:


In America, we called it Eugnenics (the ancestor of Planned Parenthood, by the way).  Yes, the 20th Century was one of mass murders, atrocities, tyranny, wars and the popularization of Darwinism.

The shameful history of eugenics in America


Excerpt from- BETTER FOR ALL THE WORLD: THE SECRET HISTORY OF FORCED STERILIZATION AND AMERICA’S QUEST FOR RACIAL PURITY
By Harry Bruinius

REVIEWED BY CLAUDE R. MARX

Stephen King, meet your nonfiction counterpart. Some of the scariest things that one can read these days come straight from the history books, including this comprehensive look at the eugenics/racial purity movement.

Populated with characters from prominent American families and based on research from top-flight universities, the movement to mandate forced sterilization of those considered mentally inferior was a significant force in the United States during much of first half of the 20th century. It is a complicated story, but in the hands of Harry Bruinius, “Better for All The World: The Secret History of Forced Sterilization and America’s Quest for Racial Purity” reads like an engaging, though eerie, novel.

Mr. Bruinius traces the movement from its intellectual origins in 19th- century Britain — where its founder was a cousin of Charles Darwin— to a woman still living in Colorado who was involuntarily sterilized while in a state mental institution.

Based on questionable scientific data, the movement caught on with Americans who who were worried that those of lesser intelligence would harm the nation’s gene pool by reproducing.
The book’s title comes from an opinion by Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes upholding a Virginia law that mandated sterilization of those deemed intellectually and morally inferior.

“It is better for all the world if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind,’ Mr. Holmes wrote in Buck vs. Bell in 1927.

Mr. Bruinius, a journalism professor at Hunter College in New York City, is clearly quite aghast at the movement (which also fueled racial quotas and other prejudicial acts) and its popularity. He goes to great lengths to explain the intellectual and social contexts in which it thrived. He cites the increase in immigrants and the changing dynamics that these newcomers created as helping fuel concerns among those from old Yankee stock. Worries about the financial and social costs to society in caring for the mentally challenged also caused some to favor forced sterilization.

Such ideas helped inspire many of the policies that were prevalent in Nazi Germany, including killing people who were not part of the “master race’ and the Nuremberg Laws, which stripped Jews of citizenship and outlawed marriage between the races.

In America, forced sterilizations were by no means a fringe movement. At one point, 30 states had forced sterilization laws and some others made use of the practice when deemed necessary for “medical reasons.’ Some prominent people, many of whom were notable progressives like Theodore Roosevelt and Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, endorsed the idea. Among its most prominent opponents were fundamentalist Christians and Roman Catholics...

America, you did not start out this way...

Our Founding Fathers were ALL men of faith.  From this website:

There were 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence. There were 48 signers of the Articles of Confederation. All 55 delegates who participated in the Constitutional Convention of 1787 are regarded as Founding Fathers, in fact, they are often regarded as the Founding Fathers because it is this group that actually debated, drafted and signed the U.S. Constitution, which is the basis for the country's political and legal system. Only 39 delegates actually signed the document, however, meaning there were 16 non-signing delegates - individuals who were Constitutional Convention delegates but were not signers of the Constitution.

There were 95 Senators and Representatives in the First Federal Congress. If one combines the total number of signatures on the Declaration, the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution with the non-signing Constitutional Convention delegates, and then adds to that sum the number of congressmen in the First Federal Congress, one obtains a total of 238 "slots" or "positions" in these groups which one can classify as "Founding Fathers" of the United States. Because 40 individuals had multiple roles (they signed multiple documents and/or also served in the First Federal Congress), there are 204 unique individuals in this group of "Founding Fathers." These are the people who did one or more of the following:

- signed the Declaration of Independence
- signed the Articles of Confederation
- attended the Constitutional Convention of 1787
- signed the Constitution of the United States of America
- served as Senators in the First Federal Congress (1789-1791)
- served as U.S. Representatives in the First Federal Congress

The religious affiliations of these individuals are summarized below. Obviously this is a very restrictive set of names, and does not include everyone who could be considered an "American Founding Father." But most of the major figures that people generally think of in this context are included using these criteria, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, John Hancock, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and more.

Roger Sherman, for example, signed all three foundational documents and he was a Representative in the First Federal Congress, but he has been counted only once. 


The 21st Century has become the era of self-indulgent ignorance.   Our nation is rotting like meat left out for flies to inject their eggs and maggots will soon be crawling out everywhere.  Our Founding Fathers were right and we are wrong.  For example:

John Adams
The people in America have now the best opportunity and the greatest trust in their hands that Providence ever committed to so small a number ... if they betray their trust, their guilt will merit even greater punishment than other nations have suffered, and the indignation of Heaven ...
— 1787
We have no government armed with the power capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and true religion.  Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.  It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
Benjamin Franklin
In free governments, the rulers are the servants, and the people their superiors and sovereigns ...
Patrick Henry
An appeal to arms and the God of hosts is all that is left us.  But we shall not fight our battle alone.  There is a just God that presides over the destinies of nations.  The battle sir, is not to the strong alone.  Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?  Forbid it almighty God.  I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death.
It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great Nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religious, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  For that reason alone, people of other faiths have been afforded freedom of worship here.
The great object is that every man be armed . . . Everyone who is able may have a gun.
— Virginia Convention on ratification of the Constitution
John Jay; first Supreme Court Justice
Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian Nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.
Thomas Jefferson
The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time:  the hand of force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them.
— 1774
The most effectual means of preventing the perversion of power into tyranny are to illuminate ... the minds of the people at large, and more especially, to give them knowledge of those facts which history exhibits, that they may ... know ambition under all it shapes, and ... exert their natural powers to defeat its purposes.
— 1779
History, by apprising the people of the past, will enable them to judge of the future; it will avail them of the experience of other times and other nations; it will qualify them as judges of the actions and designs of men; it will enable them to know ambition under every disguise it may assume; and knowing it, to defeat its views.
— 1782
The boys of the rising generation are to be the men of the next, and the sole guardians of the principles we deliver over to them.
— 1810
Unless the mass [of people] retains sufficient control over those intrusted with the powers of their government, these will be perverted to their own oppression ...
— 1812
If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.

Proverbs 16:18

English Standard Version (ESV) 
Pride goes before destruction,
    and a haughty spirit before a fall.

The testimony of Kim Sandy:

The Paradox of Man

“Know then, proud man, what a paradox you are to yourself. Be humble, impotent reason! Be silent, feeble nature! Learn that man infinitely transcends man, hear from your master your true condition, which is unknown to you.” Blaise Pascal, Pensees

Enemies of Evolution

Having previously studied for an honours degree in English Literature, and being a lover of books, I had come across Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World, and his ideas, but until recently I had never heard of his brother Julian Huxley. It turns out that Julian was quite the academic. He was the grandson of Thomas Huxley, who was nicknamed "Darwin's Bulldog" for his ferocious support of the theory of evolution and I imagine it was at his grandfather's knee that Julian first began to absorb evolutionary ideas. Julian shone brightly. He was educated at Eton College, received his degree from Oxford University, lectured at Kings College London and became president of the British Humanist Association... amongst a long list of other achievements!

Julian Huxley fascinated me for a while and I started reading some of his work. Initially I was quite impressed by his thought processes - albeit that he often sounded quite arrogant. You see, when an atheist denies God, he also denies a moral absolute and consequently a moral lawgiver. If there is no moral lawgiver and no moral absolutes then who can say what is right and what is wrong? Why should we even care about such things? I've seen people try for some wriggle room on this one, but it’s a major sticking point in the atheist's argument and often they find themselves 'borrowing' from Christianity when they defend their personal ideas of morality.

The crux of evolutionary ideology is the survival of the fittest, so if you are going to follow this thought through to its logical conclusion then how can rape, murder, theft, adultery, lying and a host of other ‘crimes’ be wrong when a person is just doing whatever he needs to do to survive or get ahead? Trampling over other people in order to get what we want should be the first law of evolution and be essential to our make up. For example, if I want to be selected for a particular job promotion, what is to stop me from killing off all the others short-listed for the position? 

When I was debating this very point recently I was told that since we no longer live in the cave-man days we no longer have to kill or be killed. We have a measure of stability in our society and this allows us to to develop a pack mentality, so that it is no longer about what is good for the individual, but is now about what is good for the pack - or for society I presume. This apparently gives us room to care for people, to have compassion for our fellow human beings and even to show sympathy and empathy. I genuinely think it is a clever argument, but there is no denying that sympathy and empathy are enemies to evolution and could potentially destroy the 'pack' if we lose sight of the 'survival of the fittest' mentality. What would Huxley have to say about this?

Well, Huxley stood his evolutionary ground whilst promoting his humanist ideology. He claimed that humanism was a replacement for religion, but he made no bones about how we should further advance our society and didn’t shy away from the uglier side of evolution. In 1926 he published a collection of articles in a book entitled The Stream of Life. The articles had formerly been broadcast by Huxley over the radio - this surprises me, because I think it takes some gall to express his ideology publicly. Huxley told his audience exactly how we could improve the human race.
"But what are we to think when pity for suffering individuals leads us not only to preserve them, but to allow them to reproduce and so not only to lower the quality of the race, but to produce more suffering in individuals yet unborn? What is one to think of the misplaced kindness which, to give an actual recent case, takes an epileptic woman to hospital to be operated on to remedy sterility; or the sentimentality which rejoices at the 'happiness', so called, generated by the marriage of two deaf mutes?"[i]



Here, I think, would be an appropriate time to bring up the actual joy generated by 'the marriage of two deaf mutes' (although I would never choose to use the phrase 'deaf mute'). In the 1960’s a London Newspaper ran an article entitled: ‘Deaf Couple Marry’ which detailed the marriage of my own parents.

My parents met at a London deaf school where sign language was forbidden and deaf children who persisted in this deviant language were shunned by society, because apparently the ‘waving around’ of their hands made them appear mentally ill.

The education my parents received focused mainly on manual skills and speech therapy and therefore they left school with barely any education. My father had a qualification in woodwork and my mother a qualification in cake decorating. When they married my parents were not allowed to make their marriage vows to one another in sign language, but instead had to struggle to speak their vows orally to each other.

Despite their disadvantages they were hard workers and determined to build a good life together. Some years later my parents 'reproduced' two very healthy hearing children who went on to marry and have hearing children of their own. Their first grandson, Benjamin grew up adoring his grandparents and communicating with them in sign language. He was inspired by the determination and courage with which they faced life. Today Benjamin is in his 4th year as a medical student at Imperial College London - one of the top medical schools not only in the UK, but also in the world. Their second grandson, Joseph 17 is currently gathering work experience so that he too can study medicine - if this is what God wills, and guess what their 11 year-old grand-daughter wants to do? I am not saying that this means our family has more value than anyone elses, I am merely pointing out that doing away with the ‘undesirables’ is not progressive!

I'd like to put this real life example to Julian Huxley and ask him how the marriage and reproduction of my parents actually weakened the human race and how, in the face of what they have achieved, he can justify his comments recommending that society should be 'segregating defectives in special institutions' and forcibly sterilising them.’[ii]

Growing up and studying World War II at school I realised that had my parents lived in Germany at that time they most likely would have ended up in the gas chambers since the ‘cleansing’ that Hitler and Nazi Germany practiced was in alignment with Huxley's eugenic ideas. Joe Boot, author of A Time to Search cites historical philosopher John Koster who wrote:

"Darwin and Huxley's picture of man's place in the universe prepared the way for the Holocaust...Darwin the scientist directly inspired Nietzsche’s superman theory and the Nazi corollary that some people were subhuman...People have to learn to stop thinking of other people as machines and learn to think of them as men and women possessed of souls...History doesn't need another one hundred million deaths to prove that scientific atheism is a form of mental illness.”[iii]

Eugenics is the logical outworking of evolution. I can see why on paper the ideas make sense and might sound like ‘progress’. I can also see why people who argue against this sort of ideology might be considered to be ‘feeble minded’ – something Huxley and the early proponents of evolution despised but what you see in the Nazi concentration camps is eugenics in action. The devaluing of human life flows from the atheist position of rejecting the teaching of the Bible that tells us that people are made in the image of God and therefore all life is precious. Instead life is expendable and killing of the defectives, undesirables and weak is to be applauded. The Nazi concentration camps brought these ideas into sharp focus and taught us that such ideas have consequences and these consequences would frequently come back to haunt us.

My grandmother, who was not a believer, told me that she was glad she didn't know that my mother was going to be deaf because if she had she would have made a terrible mistake and would have aborted her baby as an 'act of kindness'. My grandmother had no time for God, but she had unwittingly absorbed Darwinian ideas, which she didn’t fully understand but believed that they gave her license for her atheism. Millions of other people have hung their atheism on the same ‘respectable peg’ for as Richard Dawkins said, ‘Darwin made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist.’[iv]

The teaching of Christianity is in direct contrast to the harsh demands of evolution leading to eugenic ideologies and it is no wonder that Hitler himself rose up to declare:
"I regard Christianity as the most fatal, seductive lie that ever existed.’[v]

I find it hard to believe that anyone would claim that Adolf Hitler was a Christian. I do not deny that he was born a catholic, but it is clear that Hilter’s intention was to wipe out Christianity.
"Altogether Hitler’s killing machine murdered 5 million Jews, and 7 million Christians — a little published fact that caused Jewish historian Max Dimont to declare that “the world blinded itself to the murder of Christians” by Nazi Germany.”[vi]
Why?

I have no doubt that many supporters of evolution do not hold to the extreme eugenic ideas of the likes of Huxley, or Hitler for that matter, but I truly believe that for the evolutionist there is not a lot of ‘wriggle room’ here. As Edward Simon said (1983), “I cannot deny that the theory of evolution, and the atheism it engendered, led to the moral climate that made a holocaust possible.”[vii].

I believe that the grace of God covered my family and that we are living proof that Huxley couldn’t have been more wrong – I absolutely do rejoice over the happiness brought about by the marriage of my wonderful deaf parents.

"Progressive" Democrats and RINOs want to give citizenship to illegal aliens because they expect the millions of new and uneducated voters will vote for them as they establish a new society that is modeled on the old Soviet Union. The dumber the voters, the more likely they fall for the sizzle and fail to inspect the steak (which turns out to be baloney)!

Decent human beings - many of them Republicans - realize that undocumented workers in the US are in a bad position. A lot of them were brought to the United States as children, have no ties to their country of birth, and have been living exemplary and productive lives for as long as they've been here.

There's only one humane solution, which is to give them some kind of legal residency status. And it makes sense to give them a path to citizenship if they want it, especially since they're paying taxes.

The bill that's currently working it's way through Congress isn't too terribly bad. The path to citizenship is longer than it needs to be, and it wastes a huge amount of money on unnecessary "border security" pork. But those flaws were needed in order to get bipartisan support, so I'm willing to live with them.

At this point, the only obstacle to final passage is pressure from the bigots who whine and screech: "Why do those 'dumb' 'uneducated' 'illegal aliens' always 'fall for baloney' instead of supporting the politicians I want them to! Don't they understand that they should emulate their betters?"

To them, all I can say is: "Please proceed, gentlemen." I think it's important to have both sides of the argument stated as clearly and unambiguously as possible.

You forgot to use the correct word - illegal. They are not "undocumented" as if someone failed to correctly enter them into a system when they came over the border. They came ILLEGALLY!!! They broke the law. To all the millions upon millions of people who came here legally, it is a slap in the face to reward crime. Not only those who defy the law to come, but the entire system of criminals involved in getting people over here, sometimes locking them in small places and dumping them in a deserted place with little or no money or provisions.

You want the legal taxpayers (including all the people who came here legally) to feed, clothe and shelter and give medical aid to the criminals? They should be deported and the organized crime gangs that run the show need to have their source of income cut off.


There's only one humane solution, which is to give them some kind of legal residency status. And it makes sense to give them a path to citizenship if they want it, especially since they're paying taxes.

Paying TAXES???!!! Most of them are being paid in cash and avoiding taxes altogether. Mexico has strict border policies and they deport illegal aliens. But they are fine with their citizens coming over here, in fact they encourage it because of lot of illegals send money back to Mexico.

There are also terrorists who are using the Southern border to sneak in here and set up their groups in order to plan to blow things and people up. You okay with that, too?

Nobody is "better" than anyone else. I am not saying an illegal alien is less of a person than a legal citizen. I am saying they are criminals and need to be deported. The primary purpose of the central government is to protect the borders and defend the people and adhere to the Constitution. The Obama Administration is bent on doing just about everything BUT their duty.

Illegal aliens are ILLEGAL!!! Send them back and make sure they know how to come in legally. When they do, I will welcome them with open arms. Don't try to tell me that this isn't just another ploy by Obama to buy more votes. I wasn't born yesterday. Crime is crime, Chaos.
