Eugenics Stealth Resurgence and Abortion

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Francis Galton, a cousin of Charles Darwin, used evolutionary concepts in a pseudoscience called eugenics. Essentially, only those deemed suitable should be allowed to reproduce. In the United States, the idea became popular in the early 20th century. It lead to the forced sterilizations of about 60,000 citizens, euthanasia, and gave a foundation for abortion.

Margaret Sanger, founder of the highly profitable abortion mill called Planned Parenthood was a racist and eugenecist, and wanted to control the "Negro population". She used viperine techniques to further her eugenics goals, and abortion was a major aspect of them. Eugenics lost favor after the Nazis took it to its logical conclusion.

However, eugenics never really disappeared, it simply faded for a while. Since there is still some justified suspicion, eugenicists lack candor about their goals and identity. Recently, some sidewinders had a "London Conference on Intelligence", but it was about eugenics. In Iceland, they are cheering that they are eliminating Down Syndrome. This is a blatant lie, as they are murdering the unborn who have it, which is obviously eugenics in action. Who is next in your cold hearts, Icelanders? Obviously, you do not believe that children are a gift from God, or that people are created in his image!

Abortion is a kind of sacred sacrament among leftists, and that is blatantly obvious in the United States. They fight to give the "right" of abortion pretty much at any time. This sends a message that sex outside of God's plan is fine, and killing resulting unborn babies is acceptable. Despite the lies of leftist "news" organizations, Planned Parenthood harvests and sells fetal tissue from aborted babies. Perhaps they think they're helping the environment?

Not all people are so casual about disposing of human life and furthering eugenics. In Pennsylvania, House Bill 2050 was set up to stop abortion just because a child had Down Syndrome. Despite losers like State Representative Ed Gainey (who promotes Democrat interests despite their enthusiasm for abortion, which accounts for millions of black babies murdered), the bill was passed.

As individuals and as nations, God will hold us accountable for the blood on our hands. Most people do not realize that is is based on evolutionary ideas, which repeatedly yield bitter fruit. Interesting that the bill was passed and Americans are slightly more resistant to atheistic naturalism than other places. Maybe it is a coincidence.

Political commentator Chris Plante inspired this article. When he mentioned eugenics, I perked up and thought, "Gimme the microphone, I can help on this!" He didn't need my help, really, except for the additional information that I provided above. To listen to his comments, click on this link. It section lasts about 6 minutes 22 seconds.

One Gene to Rule them All

Back over forty years ago, the hands at the Darwin Ranch obtained copies of The Selfish Gene by C. Richard Dawkins, which became one of their sacred texts — I mean, textbooks. Dawkins made a number of assumptions upon which he built his arguments. One of these was the analogy used in the title, that somehow, genes get dominant status as "replicators", the whole purpose is to keep making copies of themselves.

"The Selfish Gene" became a kind of textbook for evolutionary thinking. It is finally being questioned, and evolutionists are having disagreements

Unfortunately, it wasn't until recently that some scientists actively questioned and doubted what Dawkins was presenting. Now there are squabbles in the bunkhouse, some saying that the individual is what matters, others say the group drives evolution and natural selection, and so on. None of them are willing to admit that cells, organisms, and the like have the appearance of design because (wait for it) they are designed by the Master Engineer. Dawkin's book caused problems for Darwinists, and some rethinking (with the requisite presupposition of naturalism) is in progress.
A recent opinion piece posted on the Chemistry World website notes that Richard Dawkins’ 1976 book The Selfish Gene deeply motivated a generation of biologists to adopt a gene-centered framework to explain why biological phenomena seem to operate for specific purposes. The book’s persuasion notwithstanding, the article notes ongoing challenges to the validity of Dawkins’ “selfish gene metaphor.” It also highlights other inconsistencies in evolutionary theory.
Atheist-inclined biologists thought The Selfish Gene provides satisfactory naturalistic explanations for biology’s apparent purposeful features. Most could see that creatures have microscopic molecular machines, tissues, and organs which give every indication that they function for a purpose. Creatures also seem to endlessly engage in goal-directed behaviors. As Philip Ball at Chemistry World opines, Dawkins asserts that the reason organisms have parts appearing like they were designed for a purpose, and why they are driven to do what they do, is because they are “survival machines” whose purpose is to act solely as a vehicle to perpetuate their “selfish,” self-replicating genes. Per Dawkins, selfish genes control what traits creatures possess in their ceaseless struggle to survive.

Huge Landslides and the Genesis Flood

If you get a notion to saddle up and ride in the Wyoming Territory, north of Cody is Heart Mountain. It is 8,123 feet (2,476 meters), and a popular place for geologists because of the huge landslide that took place long ago. Uniformitarian geologists are mighty puzzled by the slide.

As expected, geologists use what they know about present processes and try to extrapolate backward into the distant past. Yes, they have knowledge of the mechanisms of landslides in the present. That enables officials to give warnings on occasion. Don't be a hotshot and ignore them, you savvy?

Working and speculating backward does not work very well on a large scale, and the landslide at Heart Mountain is a case in point. The best explanation is the catastrophic changes that occurred during the Genesis Flood.
According to God’s Word, the great Flood of Noah’s day was the most devastating catastrophe in history. If true, we would expect to find evidence of upheaval on a scale unlike anything we see today. And that’s what we find.
Geologists have discovered huge chunks of land that broke free during past super earthquakes and slid dozens of miles in just minutes. The next time someone questions Noah’s Flood, share the following example!

The Darwin Termite Does Not Support Evolution

This child does not know anyone who likes termites, except for mayhaps entomologists who study it doing insect stuff. There is one obnoxious pest in Northern Australia known as Mastotermes darwiniensis, the Darwin or giant northern termite. It commences to eating almost anything organic, ruining agriculture, and so forth. Interesting that Darwin's advocates think that it has "evolutionary significance".

Apparently, only in 'Straya can these things be found that are supposed to be evidence of evolution from cockroaches. It's the wings that got Darwin bots all het up, plus a few other similar features between cockroaches and termites, thousands of species of each notwithstanding. Evolutionists have confirmation bias and use the fallacy of affirming the consequent, and ignore the simple fact that having some features in common can also be evidence of the Designer of both. With a bit more examination, the evolutionary story falls apart.
Termites, of which about 2,000 species have been described, belong to the order Isoptera, which means ‘equal-winged’. In contrast to nearly all other insects, the front and back wings look totally alike — with the exception of the species Mastotermes darwiniensis, the ‘Darwin termite’ (named after the city of Darwin in Australia's Northern Territory) . . .

When this termite was described about 100 years ago, evolutionists were enthusiastic. At last the origin of these highly organized insects was thought to have been discovered! The anal lobe was the proof: ‘Termites have evolved from cockroaches!’

The Resurrection and Creation

The time of the year commonly called Easter, Resurrection Sunday, and others is obviously vitally important to Bible-believing Christians. Although we proclaim the bodily Resurrection of Jesus Christ throughout the year, on this day we have a more intensive celebration, often paying attention to Passover and other events of the time.

Celebrating the bodily Resurrection of Jesus from the dead is also celebrating creation

Because everyone has sinned (Romans 3:23), God the Son took on human form (Philippians 2:7), died on the cross and rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) out of love for us (Romans 5:8). We can have salvation (Romans 6:23). It is by faith alone, and not by anything we can do ourselves (Ephesians 2:8-9). Study on it: our Creator (John 1:1, Colossians 1:16) suffered, died, and arose for us. There is evidence for creation and for the Resurrection, which help strengthen our faith. In this way, celebrating the Resurrection is also celebrating creation!
We rightly acknowledge God as Creator of all, but it behooves us to remember that while all three persons of the Godhead were involved, it was Jesus Christ, God's "dear Son: In whom we have redemption through His blood" (Colossians 1:13-14) actually doing the work, for "all things were created by Him, and for Him" (Col. 1:16).
On the cross, Jesus Christ willingly dismissed His spirit once His work was "finished" (John 19:30). Furthermore, after three days in the grave, He chose to take His life back again. As He told His disciples, "I have power to lay [my life] down, and I have power to take it again" (John 10:18)—an empty claim from the lips of any but the Creator. As the Creator and giver of life, He has the authority to do as He chooses.
