Over on Free Republic, the posting of the article "Darwinism the Root of the Culture of Death" has Darwin defenders frenziedly attacking dissenters. In an immediate attempt at shutting down further discussion creation science has been invalidated by linking it with 'religion,' the suggestion being that the integrity of the article is nonexistent on the grounds that creation science is really nothing more than stupid, backward superstition while Darwinism is real science. Another attacker links Darwinism with geology, physics, and chemistry in order to suggest that to invalidate Darwinism is to invalidate the others and who but stupid religionists would do such a thing? In post-Christian America atheist evolutionism is taken for granted throughout the college curriculum, just as it is in all aspects of modern thought and experience, especially within the progressive liberal community. Evolution not only undergirds biological and earth sciences, but also Freudian and Jungian psychology, anthropology, law, sociology, politics, economics, the media, arts, medicine, and all other academic disciplines as well.
Evolution-believers range from atheists and scientists to esoteric Free Masonry, Hollywood insiders, occult New Age spiritists, Satanists, powerful Transnational Progressives, and large numbers of people who call themselves Christian. Among this last group are Liberal Christians, Roman Catholics, Protestants, Emergent Church leaders Brian McLaren and Rob Bell, growing numbers of the Evangelical contemporary Church, and an increasingly vocal community of Christian scholars and scientists such as Dennis Venema. Venema is a senior fellow at BioLogos Foundation, a Christian group that tries to reconcile the Bible with evolutionary science, and as a consequence teach that humans emerged from apes.
But is Darwinism empirical science? Karl Popper said no.
Karl Popper (1902-1994) was a British philosopher and a professor at the London School of Economics. Because he 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 political struggle fought between creationists and methodological and ontological naturalists.
Though Popper esteemed evolutionary theory and natural selection, he also forthrightly stated that Darwinism is not a testable scientific theory but rather a metaphysical research program. In other words, while chemistry, geology and physics are legitimate science, Darwinism is an imposter. In reality Darwinism is a metaphysical evolutionary cosmogony (creation account) whose tap-root stretches back to the Enuma Elish, the ancient evolutionary cosmogony of Sumeria and Babylonia.
"What do Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, â€œfather of the sexual revolutionâ€ Alfred Kinsey, Lenin, and Hitler have in common? All these pioneers of what some call the culture of death rooted their beliefs and actions in Darwinism - a little-known fact that one conservative leader says shouldnâ€™t be ignored. Darwinism was also the â€œfoundationâ€ of Communist ideology in Russia through Vladimir Lenin, said Owen, who showed a photograph of the only decorative item found on Leninâ€™s desk: an ape sitting on a pile of books, including Darwinâ€™s â€œOrigin of Species,â€ and looking at a skull."
The mass-murderer "Lenin sat at this desk and looked at this sculpture as he authorized the murder of millions of his fellow countrymen, because they stood in the way of evolutionary progress" (Darwinism the root of the culture of death: expert
Did Darwinism 'make' these people commit atrocities? No. All men have two sides, a light side attracted by good and a fallen dark side easily attracted by evil. As well all men have free will, the ability to choose good over evil and vice versa. It is in this light that we can understand why ideas have consequences, that is, good ideas bear good fruit and bad ideas bear bad fruit.
Darwinism is a dangerous idea. Its' immediate appeal is to the dark side of man (i,e. pride, ambition, greed, envy) because it holds that while all men evolved out of pre-existing pond scum, some few, select, men are nevertheless superior to all others due to a metaphysical predestination-process known as natural selection.
The greatest irony of all is that Darwinism denies man's sin nature out of one side of its mouth, while out of the other it loudly proclaims his guilt by holding up a bright blood-red neon-arrow blinking out the message: man is a liar, thief, and murderer guilty of enslaving, torturing, and murderering millions of the unborn and already-born men, women, and children.
One of the chief lies of our time is this: Darwinism is science.
