Darwin’s theory of evolution changed the course of human history forever. Unlike any other theory before or since. Some of these changes have been detrimental. In his book “Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life”, he attempts to explain where humans came from, and other species: coming through progression or evolution of life. Originally from single cell ameba’s to highly intelligent animals. It can not explain the origin of the universe and how all matter came into being.
This academia immediately infiltrated education. As a result, perceptions of racial superiorities and inferiorities were changed…almost seamlessly, as by osmosis. Different human races or nations or people groups were not all at the same rate of progression in the evolutionary process. Some races were believed to be far superior, or further along in the process than others. Still others were judged far more inferior, or further down the evolutionary scale. They were expendable…disposable.
Hitler hated Communism, which in part persuaded him to invade Russia. Russia was too expansive, too resourceful, too rich in people and factories to conquer. Russia is still as formidable as ever. Hitler’s murder victims pail in comparison to Stalin, Lenin and Chairman Mao‘s. The genocide of the Jews, the Slavs and the Gypsies, the millions that died under Communism and still dying, the ethnic-cleansing, were not helped by Darwin’s theory. From the belief that the Arian race was far superior to being under the god-less iron-thumb of Communism, which to itself was god, the belief in evolution has caused millions to die.
Communism, atheistic by design, has been the greatest social engineering experiment we have ever seen, and it failed miserably. In doing so it killed over 100,000,000 men, women, and children, not to mention the nearly 30 million of it’s subjects that died in aggressive wars and rebellions. The extermination or deportation of the Jews was of racial overtones. China’s staggering number is 65 million, Cambodia 2 million, North Korea, 2 million…and thousands more scattered world-wide.
Communal living that was to bring it’s own utopia instead brought fear, persecution, murder and torturing. Karl Marx’ Communism was not what is thought of it today. He felt the industrial age and large cities were not the idea for humanity and that they exploited people to the benefit of the rich, few. His idea was that of sharing the land and resources, not absolute dictatorship. His belief that Religion was the opium of the people was far less fatal than the poisoned water’s of Communism.
Incidentally, the greatest famines have occurred within the Soviet Union (about 5,000,000 dead during 1921-23 and 7,000,000 from 1932-3) and communist China (about 27,000,000 dead from 1959-61), more than all other sovereign countries combined. In total, almost 55,000,000 people died in various communist famines and associated diseases, a little over 10,000,000 of them from democidal famine. This is as though the total population of Turkey, Iran, or Thailand had been completely wiped out. And that something like 35,000,000 people fled communist countries as refugees, as though the countries of Argentina or Columbia had been totally emptied of all their people. This stands as an unparalleled indictment of the utopian pretensions stated by Communism.
However, even democracies are not blameless and this includes the U. S. A prime example is the KKK. The history books leave out much of the extermination of Indian (Sovereign) nations, the use and abuse of African-Americans as slaves and don’t even mention the thousands of mentally or physically impaired or handicapped that were sterilized, put to death or abandoned and left to die. Historically, racism has occurred more frequently where communism, atheism, evolution are taught, practiced and believed. Especially when all three are combined under a state system.
In the early 20th Century, 32 American states had laws in the books to sterilize or euthanize those unfortunate, innocent victims. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, called for the elimination of "human weeds," “pruning the species for furtherance of it,“ for the cessation of charity, for the segregation of "morons, misfits, and maladjusted," and for the sterilization of "genetically inferior races.” Mrs. Sanger argued that organized attempts to help the poor were the "surest sign that our civilization has bred, is breeding, and is perpetuating . . . defectives, delinquents, and dependents”. The U. S. Supreme Court backed the states on their practices. How fortunate we are today, even the great Physicist, Stephen Hawking might not have survived such a fate or had Albert Einstein had Muscular Dystrophy, who knows?
To believe in evolution or atheism or communism is most certainly not tantamount to being a prejudiced person or having racial bigotry. This association can not and must not be made. The references to this theory created much suffering in the early 20th century. I believe that mankind is more tolerant in this global community in which we live today. Most of the effects of a belief in evolution were most damaging in the times mentioned earlier. Even today, Communism allows certain religious freedoms in some areas.
In Darwin’s Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection believed that fossil evidence to prove his theory of gradual progression from one species into another, would eventually be found. It has been over 100 years and no such evidence exists. Where is the fossil evidence of lizards transitioning into birds? This I would like to see, since their lung functions are so radically different, it could not have happened gradually nor rapidly. No fossil transitions equal no proof. There is not even one single example of this anywhere on earth.
Darwin and most scientists at the time, believed that cells were simple, living organisms, with only a few parts. This was thought to enable easy mutation or change into different kinds of cells. Cells are extremely complex, with over one trillion different functions and processes. More complex than the New York City Metro Transit’s transportation system (including the computers that help run it).
100 hundred million fossils have been examined and not so much as one record of a progression into a different species are to be found. What has been found and widely known, is an (Cambrian) explosion of hundreds of news species. It isn’t called an explosion because it happened slowly. It is astonishingly instantaneous; almost like a rapid creation event.
Cellular mutation is not an improvement of the organism. As cells age, it is like the original copy of the cell has a copy made of itself. Then, this copy is copied. That copy is likewise copied, until it becomes much less like the original and has lost much of it’s original cellular integrity. It is not mutating, it is decaying. Entropic change moves into a more disorderly, chaotic state, not an improved one. Simply put, it is a dispersal of it’s mechanical energy, not a reorganizing or improving of the specie’s cellular integrity from one type into another, superior specie. It is a smoothing out process, not a building up process.
Darwin realized there was not sufficient fossil evidence in his day to prove his theory of gradual progression, that is from one species into another. And even his own colleagues noted flaws in his naturalistic speculation. He predicted they would eventually be found. They have not.
Sir Arthur Keith, a noted anthropologist and devout evolutionist, admits that ”Evolution is unproved and un-provable. We [evolutionists] believe it because the only alternative is special creation, and that is unthinkable?“. Hundreds of millions of fossils have been studied, categorized and yet not one progression of a species has been found.
How many more scientists are withdrawing their support in this theory is uncertain, but the numbers are growing. Scientists may see this as an embarrassment many years from now. Some already do. We are still looking for proof. Fossil records simply do not support any credible evidence. Why continue looking for a missing link while the entire chain is missing?
