Is Evolution the Solution?

Are they trying to make a monkey out of me?

The Firpo Files

(Sentinel, January 5 - 11, 2012)


Biological evolutionists say that billions of years ago your ancestors crawled out of a quagmire that lightning struck. It's that simple. Now, they don't say where the lightning or the quagmire ultimately came from.

But, if what they say is true, then you can replace all those wonderful photographs of your parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents with photos of your original parents: slimy bacteria that just got fried by lightning. (I know a place where you can get a good deal on picture frames.)

In Defiance of Design: Our solar system and universe are celestial design in mind-boggling motion. As the analogy goes, to say it all came about through happenstance would be tantamount to saying that a dictionary resulted from an explosion in a printing factory; and that the dictionary slowly evolved into a comprehensive multi-volume encyclopedia set.

It's to say that you left your old analog watch from the 1960's in the desert where it was struck by lightning and thereafter turned into an iPad2.  Or, it's like saying you lost your Commodore 64 while on a fishing trip, and later learned it ended up in the water near the shoreline. Lightning struck it, and it evolved into the Internet.

The Racist Component: Six years ago this week I wrote the following in this very column: "The black and white of evolution, though, is ominously foreboding. It is tainted with racism and discrimination. Darwin, though against slavery, thought that ‘Negroes' were among the ‘lower races'--‘savages.'" "To embrace evolution is to embrace racism."

"Black Louisiana politician Sharon Broome said: ‘Darwin's ideas on how humans evolved are racist and the key reason for race problems [and] provide the main rationale for racism.' Broome's sweeping conclusion? ‘If evolution has provided the main rationale for racism, and we are teaching our children evolution in schools, then correspondingly we are teaching them racist principles.'"

Criminal Coloreds?: The practice of fingerprinting in law enforcement was born from "scientific racism" in connection with Black men with presumed lower intelligence on the evolutionary scale. Who was the father of this type of "scientific racism"? British anthropologist Sir Francis Galton, Charles Darwin's cousin. 

"In 1892, he published his book, Fingerprints," says one college textbook, "establishing the individuality and permanence of fingerprints. The book included the first classification system for fingerprints. Galton's primary interest in fingerprints was as an aid in determining heredity and racial background."

"Survival of the Fittest": Dr. Don Boys put it best when he wrote: "‘I wonder what the ‘climate' is doing to students in public schools as they are taught they came from animals and are without any purpose in life? Could the incredible number and depth of our social problems be the result of Darwinism? I am convinced this is so, for if one believes that life has no purpose, and man came from beasts, then dignity, fairness, kindness, honesty, faithfulness and justice have no relevance and importance....

"‘The major haters of the last 100 years have been evolutionists. Men like Nietzsche (who often said God was dead, called for the breeding of a master race, and for the annihilation of millions of misfits), Hitler, Mussolini, Marx, Engels, and Stalin were all outspoken evolutionists, and these people and their theories have been responsible for the slaughter of multi-millions of people, and the destruction of freedom all over the earth. It is amazing that so many liberals, radicals, fascists, communists and the easily impressed worship at Darwin's shrine. Yes, the foundation of racism, hatred and violence in the last hundred years is based in evolutionary teaching.'" In other words, eliminate those not among the fittest.

"Animalistic Men": Actually, Dr. Boys may be surprised that the Bible prophesied the selfsame bewildering sentiments he uttered. "As for you, beloved ones, call to mind the sayings that have been previously spoken by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, how they used to say to you: ‘In the last time there will be ridiculers, proceeding according to their own desires for ungodly things.' These are the ones that make separations [racists], animalistic men [warmongers], not having spirituality [atheists]."--Jude 17-19, New World Translation.

Conclusion: One of my students asked me wryly: "Do you believe in talking snakes?" I retorted, "Do you believe in talking birds?" Nowadays it seems fashionable to believe in evolution; to deny the existence of God. If there is no God, the believer has lost nothing. But if there is a God, where would the atheist stand?

Peace and blessings to all--even atheists. Amen.
