Why Do You Keep Boring Us with Darwinism?

I’ve written several columns about my skepticism regarding Darwinism. Each time I do I receive snooty comments attesting to my stupidity and my ignorance. The Darwinists never seem to want to discuss any of the points I have tried to make, just to ridicule the very thought that there may be some kind of guiding intelligence behind the structures, the amounts of information, the complexities, the fine balance and the mysteries of life and our universe.

If anything is subject to ridicule, it is the answer that the world’s leading proponent and defender of Darwinian dogma, Richard Dawkins, gave to Ben Stein when Stein asked him about the origin of life. Dawkins answered that perhaps some alien life form seeded life on earth. Such an answer is obviously ludicrous in the context of Darwinism, and even Dawkins seemed to realize it.

Practically every day, for the past 150 years, evidence reputed to ‘prove’ Darwinism has been shown to be invalid or fake, while evidence (especially since the invention of the electron microscope) of the limitations and erroneous aspects of Darwinism has been building. Why, then, is there such a fierce reaction to anyone who wishes to examine this issue? The movie, “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed”, illustrates this reaction and resistance beyond argument.

The reason for the suppression of honest inquiry is absolutely clear. Not only was Darwinism the underpinning for Nazism and Soviet Communism, it is the underpinning for modern liberalism and socialism; all of which are founded on the proposition that man is an accident, and the only course in life that makes any sense is to get yours while you can, be it material things or personal pleasure. The belief that there are no eternal truths or concepts of right and wrong justifies almost any kind of decadent behavior, such as killing babies at the moment of birth or the marriage of homosexuals. The belief that who we are and what we have are the results only of billions of years of cumulative accidents justifies income redistribution schemes and the idea that animals and the environment are just as important as mankind’s progress and quality of life.

Most people do not believe in Darwinism; it is only among the elite in academia and the media that this concept has taken root. Ordinary people have common sense. I wish common sense would take hold everywhere; it would mean the start of a better world.

Religion is a matter of faith, science a matter of observation. Not to say observations are always 100%, especially in biological systems. But there is a preponderance of the evidence...

What I don't understand is why creationists think creationism and Darwin are mutually exclusive? If a creator created some organisms instantaneously, then why couldn't the same creator set in motion a system of evolution to achieve the same results? Who knows why?

As for Darwinism being the model for Socialism/Nazism, one can hardly blame Darwin.

Of course, it is entirely possible that our Creator set macro-evolution in motion (that is what I believed until Dr. Behe came along), but that is NOT what the Darwinists insist.

"The belief that there are...eternal truths or concepts of right and wrong justifies almost any kind of decadent behavior" including rape, torture, genocide, flying aircraft into tall buildings, etc.
Russ, your true believers have no patent on virtuous behavior.

As Jesse points out, science is a matter of observation. The theory of evolution adequately explains many, if not all, of the scientific observations made to date. Just as the general theory of relativity evolved from Einsteins special theory of relativity, some modifications to evolutionary theory may be necessary as scientists make other discoveries, but for the moment it provides a satisfactory explanation for observed phenomena.

Socialism and Nazism have nothing to do with science, and the opinions of individuals who are not trained in science have no value when given in the assessment of scientific knowledge.

Dave, The actions of some madmen do not make your point persuasive at all. There are millions of peaceful Muslims leading exemplary lives. Most of them are quite offended by the excesses of western culture that they see - excesses driven by the philosophy of modern liberalism.
