America's traditional worldview is founded on Biblical Revelation, Moral Law and Christian principles, particularly those connected with Protestantism: "Democracy is Christ's government in church and state," said Coolidge as he quoted John Wise (1710). "Here was the doctrine of equality, popular sovereignty, and the substance of the theory of inalienable rights....When we take all these circumstances into consideration, it is but natural that the first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence should open with a reference to Nature's God and should close...with an appeal to the Supreme Judge of the world and an assertion of a firm reliance on Divine Providence...In its main feature the Declaration of Independence is a great spiritual document. Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man â€” these are not elements which we can see and touch. They are ideals. They have their source and roots in the religious convictions. They belong to the unseen world. " (Backfired: A Nation Born for Religious Tolerance No Longer Tolerates Religion, William J. Federer, pp. 270-271)
There are a number of fundamental theological doctrines essential to orthodox Christianity and any teachings, i.e., ideologies, philosophies and other conceptions alien to orthodox Christianity will effectively undermine and deconstruct Christianity and by extension, America's founding worldview, resulting in the destruction of our traditional way of life.
False and/or alien teachings that undermine and invert Christian doctrines are heresies. By the turn of the century, Progressives, Fascists, Socialists, Communists and others of that persuasion had stealthily injected pernicious heresies (the tenets of Modernism) into the life-blood of America.
Around that same time, 1907 to be exact, Pope Pius X had dubbed Modernism and its principle doctrine evolution â€œthe synthesis of all heresiesâ€ in his encyclical Pascendi Dominici gregis.
Of all of Modernisms' heresies, Evolution Theory is perhaps the most destructive, and as Darwinism it has been widely embraced by Americans, including vast numbers of Christians over and across the whole denominational spectrum.
Contrary to what unsuspecting Americans have been led to believe, Darwin is not the originator of Evolution Theory. The truth is that Charles Darwin received the idea of evolution from his grandfather Dr. Erasmus Darwin who was a neo-pagan known to attend sÃ©ances.
As master of the famous Masonic Canongate lodge in Edinburgh he had close ties with both the God-hating Jacobin Masons, the organizers of the bloody revolution in France, and with the infamous Luciferian Illuminati, whose diabolical cause was overthrow of the Church and destruction of Christendom. Thus Erasmus Darwin was an important name in European Masonic anti-Christian organizations engaged in revolutionary activism. Erasmus Darwin mentored his grandson Charles:
"Dr. Erasmus Darwin (1731-1802) was the first man in England to suggest those ideas which were later to be embodied in the Darwinian theory by his grandson, Charles Darwin (1809-1882) who wrote in 1859 Origin of Species." (Scarlet and the Beast, Vol. II, John Daniel, p. 34)
In his book, "The Meaning of Masonry," W.L. Wilmhurst discloses both the real purpose of evolution and its' historical lineage:
"the evolution of man into superman â€” was always the purpose of the ancient Mysteries, and the real purpose of modern Masonry is not the social and charitable purposes to which so much attention is paid, but the expediting of the spiritual evolution of those who aspire to perfect their own nature and transform it into a more god-like quality. And this is a definite science, a royal art, which it is possible for each of us to put into practice..." (The Meaning of Masonry, W.L. Wilmhurst, p. 47)
The Book of Revelation pinpoints Babylonia as the post-flood originator of all Mystery Religions whose purpose, said Wilmhurst, is "the evolution of man into superman." This being the case it should come as no surprise that the Babylonian cosmogony (creation account) 'Enuma Elish,' found in Ninevah speaks of a Godless process of mechanical evolution within nature (pantheism/all is god) rather than an act of creation by the supernatural Creator outside of nature. In his work, 'Enuma Elish---the Babylonian Genesis,' Thorkild Jacobsen writes:
"Specifically, Enuma Elish assumes that all things have evolved out of water. This presents the earliest stage of the universe as one of watery chaos." (The Long War Against God: The History and Impact of the Evolution/Creation Conflict, Dr. Henry Morris, pp. 243-244)
In other words, all things evolved out of pre-existing, non-created matter (watery chaos). In contemporary terminology, this idea is known as scientific materialism. Up till a few years ago, materialists rallied round the nonsensical idea that matter had spontaneously generated (created) itself from nothing, but today materialists like Richard Dawkins are abandoning that intellectually bankrupt claim and moving toward the idea of panspermia. Panspermia teaches that millions of years ago, highly evolved Space Brothers seeded our planet with the seeds of life from which all life forms, including man, finally evolved. Panspermia does not resolve materialism's intellectual bankruptcy, it merely moves it to outer space.
Though Modernism is a synthesis of all heresies going back to ancient Babylonia, none are so mesmerizing nor powerfully attractive as evolution, the royal science of becoming God. And just as Babylonia became drunk on that heresy and incurred God's wrath, so too is contemporary America.
