How Much Longer Can They Sell Darwinism?

All across the country, archeologists, paleontologists and biologists are taking part in what is perhaps the greatest example of political correctness in history – their adherence to Darwinism and their attempts to ostracize any scientist who does not agree with them. In doing so, they are not only ignoring the vast buildup of recent scientific discoveries that seriously undermines the basics of Darwinism, but they are also participating, due to politically correctness, in a belief system that indirectly resulted in the deaths of millions of people – those slaughtered by the Stalins, the Hitlers, the Maos, the Pol Pots and others who took their cue from Darwinism’s tenets.

Liberals, who are quite often atheists, have long been in control of our media and our educational institutions, and they fiercely punish anyone who would depart from a vigorous defense of Darwinism – the philosophy that supports and gives substance to their atheism and its “anything goes” corollary – Rousseau-lian pleasure-seeking without responsibility or consequences. Fortunately a growing group of courageous scientists are succeeding in pointing out the fallacies associated with Darwinism (or Neo-Darwinism, its more modern form).

There are several areas of interest that bear on the central tenets of Darwinism, including the fossil record, homology, embryology, biogeography, and natural selection and mutation. Today let’s examine just one area – the fossil record.

Darwin noted that different layers of the planet yielded different fossils which usually varied from the simplest, in older layers, to more-complex, in younger, higher layers. Together with other evidence he considered supportive, Darwin theorized that there was a ‘tree of life’, with all beings that ever lived developing along branches that flowed upwards from an original, simple, single-celled organism. As we all know, Darwin also believed that higher level creatures were the result of naturally occurring variations that, over geologic time, created new forms and new species.

Darwin believed that extensive studies of the fossil record would reveal this ‘tree of life’ more clearly, and that many transitional forms would be found. He went so far as to say that the absence of such discoveries would disprove his thesis. Unfortunately for Darwinists, just the opposite has exactly happened. Among the millions of fossils found, only three or four have, arguably, offered the possibility of being transitional forms. Even worse, the fossil record shows, not a ‘tree of life’ of species changing over time, but mostly the sudden appearance of new species which do NOT change over time and which suddenly disappear. Scientists have a name for this. They call it “stasis”. At best there may be many individual trees showing limited development, but also some life forms that have been discovered and identified (or still exist like turtles) show only straight line existence over the life-spans of their species.

The movie, “Expelled”, revealed the extent to which skeptics of Darwinism suffer difficulties in having their works published, of denial of tenure and even of termination. Hopefully this movie and the facts being discovered that do not fit the Darwinian model will eventually put a stop to this. There has to be a point at which the overwhelming evidence that Darwinism is an outmoded, 19th century fantasy becomes universally recognized, and the foolish political correctness ends.

Future posts will be forthcoming on other aspects of Darwinism that have also come under serious question.

You are really nuts. Have you considered professional help?

I guess, Anonymous, I should reconsider since, clearly, you never evolved.

so are you saying that because a turtle hasn't "evolved" in millions of years, it disproves evolution because Darwin's hypothesis of a "tree of life" might not be completely accurate?

ChiGuy, The fossil record predominently shows stasis, the sudden emergence of life forms that did not change over their period of existence, of which the turtle is one example.

I could be wrong (it's been known to happen on occasion) but didn't Darwin himself start to doubt his own theories about evolution?

It seems obvious to me that no one wants to entertain the idea that we didn't evolve the way we're taught - because that would force us to consider the notion that perhaps something created us.

Why that's a bad thing, I'll never know!

bobxxxx, you really need to control your anger against anyone who questions Darwinism. I intend to discuss molecular homology in a future post. Name-calling has no place in this discussion.
