Losing Our Souls to Progressive 'Evolutionary' Faith

Godfather Politics reported: "In keeping with his Marxist philosophies, President Barack Obama intentionally omitted any mention of God in his Thanksgiving Day address to the nation. Whether you realize it or not, this was not an accidental oversight."

While it may be the case that Obama is a Marxist ideologue, his omission of the supernatural God is more than likely due to his absolute faith in evolution, as noted by Samuel Blumenfield in his classic text, "NEA: Trojan Horse in American Education:"

"An absolute faith in science became the driving force behind the progressives.... The most important idea that would influence the educators was that of evolution—the notion that man, through a process of natural selection, had evolved to his present state from a common animal ancestry. Evolution was as sharp a break with the Biblical view of creation as anyone could make, and it was quickly picked up by those anxious to disprove the validity of orthodox religion." (1984, p. 43).

After all, why should Obama mention Jehovah if evolution is true? The forces of evolution have displaced Jehovah as British atheist Sir Julian Huxley boasted many years ago:

"Darwinism (has) removed the whole idea of God as the creator of organisms from the sphere of rational discussion."

Huxley even went so far as to compare Jehovah to the disappearing act performed by the Cheshire cat in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland when he wrote:

“The supernatural is being swept out of the universe.... God is beginning to resemble not a ruler, but the last fading smile of a cosmic Cheshire cat”

And today, Jehovah is all but gone, said Brown University evolutionist Kenneth Miller in his 1999 book, "Finding Darwin's God:"

" it is a fact that in the scientific world of the late twentieth century, the displacement of God by Darwinian forces is almost complete. This view is not always articulated openly, perhaps for fear of offending the faithful, but the literature of science is not a good place to keep secrets. Scientific writing, especially on evolution, shows this displacement clearly." (p. 15)

Marxism, socialism, communism, and today's New Age spiritual communism are types of millenial utopianism. In his book "Utopia: The Perennial Heresy," Christian philosopher and historian Thomas Molnar (1910-2010) notes that the two recurring themes of utopianism are naturalism (as opposed to supernaturalism) and evolutionary conceptions. At the root of these two themes there is:

" defiance of God, pride unlimited, a yearning for enormous power and the assumption of divine attributes with a view to manipulating and shaping mankind's fate." (p. 227)

In order for the conceptual murderers of Jehovah to create a new world and a new man:

"the order of being must be obliterated (and reinterpreted) as essentially under man's control." Taking control "requires the decapitation of being — the murder of God." (Eric Voegelin, "Science, Politics and Gnosticism," p. xv)

Fundamentally, Darwinism is materialist naturalism and as the pillar of natural science is the devilish idea by which naturalist murderers of Jehovah have "decapitated God" and seized control of the order of being.

In short, Darwinism is powerful magic wielded by a cult religion's sorcerers:

"(Darwinism is) nothing but a kind of cult, a cult religion....It has no scientific validity whatsoever. Darwin's so-called theory of evolution is based on absurdly irrational propositions, which did not come from scientific observations, but were artificially introduced from the outside, for political-ideological reasons." (Jonathan Tennenbaum, "Towards 'A New Science of Life,' Executive Intelligence Review, Vol. 28, No. 34, Sept. 7, 2001)

Evolutionary conceptions, whether Darwinian, Telhardian, or of Babylonian, Egyptian or Oriental origin, are not empirically verifiable scientific facts but rather inventions of the imagination, as even Karl Popper (1902-1994), a British philosopher and a professor at the London School of Economics honestly admitted.

Because Popper is regarded as one of the greatest philosophers of science of the 20th century what he had to say about Darwinism is of utmost importance to the desperate spiritual, cultural, moral and political battle being fought between orthodox Christians, conservatives, faithful Jews, and creationists on one hand and evolutionary naturalists, their followers, and utopianists on the other. This is because the America of the Founding generation is firmly grounded in the Genesis account of creation, Old and New Testament morality and Christian theism, yet the original meaning and intent of U.S. law — as now controlled and defined by anti-supernaturalists — has been radically changed so that it now reflects the doctrinal decrees of imperialist atheist evolutionary naturalism.

Though Popper esteemed evolutionary theory and natural selection, he also forthrightly stated that Darwinism is not a testable scientific theory, it is not empirically testable, but rather it is a metaphysical research program. For this reason, Popper argued strongly against empiricism, saying that scientific theories such as Darwinism and human knowledge generally, are conjectural or hypothetical and generated by the creative imagination.

In Noah Webster's American Dictionary of the English Language, 1828, soul and imagination are respectively defined as:

1. Soul: "The spiritual, rational and immortal substance in man, which distinguishes him from brutes; that part of man which enables him to think and reason."

The Founding generation knew that mind is a power of soul, and imagination the ability by which mind conceives:

2. Imagination: "...the power or faculty of the mind by which it conceives and forms ideas of things communicated to it by the senses....The business of conception (and the) power of modifying our conceptions, by combining the parts of different ones so as to form new wholes of our own creation...(imagination) selects the parts of different conceptions, or objects of memory, to form a whole more pleasing, more terrible, or more awful, than has ever been presented in the ordinary course of nature."

In conclusion, evolutionism is an invention of imagination, an invention more terrible and more destructive than has ever been presented in the ordinary course of nature. It imagines that Jehovah is dead, that life somehow emerged out of nonlife, that man is not created in the spiritual image of God the Father but is rather a soulless, mindless ex-ape of evolution. It imagines there is no sin, no "hell below us, and above us only sky."

The prophet Hosea, speaking on behalf of God, observed: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge."

A generation ago, most Americans taught diligently on such topics as the existence of the supernatural God, the inspiration of the Bible, and the importance of the creation account in order to save the souls of our children and other unbelievers. Today however, Jehovah God has been displaced by evolution, faith has nearly collapsed, and we are losing our children and they are losing their souls to evolution. They are being destroyed for lack of knowledge.
