The Theory of Evolution is a lie which is popularly believed not because it is "scientific" so much as because the empires of the world have found the idea helpful in buttressing thier power and extending their genocidal domination. Powerful men have had a vested interest in propagating this faith, and the masses they dominate have found it a convenient excuse for ignoring God's commandments. Many sincere Christians believe that the theory of evolution must be compatible with the Bible because the Bible couldn't possibly be out of sync with "science." They must come to see that "science" is a euphemism for Secular Humanism's Genocidal Imperialism.
The modern world laughs at the Bible. "Myths and legends." "Full of errors." The Biblical account of the creation of the universe in six days not more than 10,000 years ago is laughed at by most (but not all) scientists. In place of the Garden of Eden, modern scientists and politicians have given us smog and smut, Hiroshima and homelessness.
The 20th century marks the triumph of secularism. Three centuries ago, all the great nations of Western Civilization were openly Christian nations. Today these same nations are openly atheistic. God and His Law have no authority. No longer is man seen as created in the Image of God. He is just a random mutation; a meaningless conglomeration of chemicals. Social customs are also seen as meaningless and arbitrary.
"But at least we are no longer oppressed by the Bible," some will still say.
They are on the road to death.
The 20th century is (not surprisingly) the most violent in history. The existentialist philosopher Jean Paul Sartre put it well: "If I am god, then my neighbor is the devil." Research led by Prof. R.J. Rummel at the University of Hawaii has calculated that nearly 200 million human beings have been deliberately killed by secular governments in this century alone. A greater percentage of the human race has been murdered - by governments - than any previous century.
Followers of secularism have learned their lessons. They are not afraid to kill their families, their own children, even themselves. Drugs, sex, gangs, and alcohol bring escape from a meaningless, atheistic world.
Followers of Christ may not have learned their lessons, but at least they know Who the Teacher is. True Christians take the Bible seriously. They believe its record of human history; they obey its laws. They work for the full social embodiment of Biblical Creationism as seen in the words of the Prophet Micah:
And it will come about in the last days
That the mountain of the House of the LORD
Will be established as the chief of the mountains
And it will be raised above the hills
And the peoples will stream to it.
And many nations will come and say,
"Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD
And to the House of the God of Jacob,
That He may teach us about His ways
And that we may walk in His paths."
For from Zion will go forth the Law
Even the Word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
And He will judge between many peoples
And render decisions for mighty, distant nations.
Then they will hammer their swords into plowshares
And their spears into pruning hooks;
Nation will not lift up sword against nation
And never again will they train for war.
And each of them will sit under his
Vine and under his fig tree,
With no one to make them afraid.
For the LORD of hosts has spoken.
Though all the peoples walk
Each in the name of his god,
As for us, we will walk
In the Name of the LORD our God
forever and ever.
In that day, saith the LORD, will I assemble her that halteth,
and I will gather her that is driven out,
and her that I have afflicted;
And I will make her that halted a remnant,
and her that was cast far off a strong nation:
and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion
from henceforth, even for ever.
We can call this the "Vine & Fig Tree" vision. "The Mountain of the Lord" is a reference to the Garden of Eden: Micah's use of it here speaks of the re-creation of the world into a Garden-Temple; a future age of peace, secure property, and restored Edenic conditions.
We can also call this perspective "Patriarchy." Feminists hate the word, but anyone who would believe in a literal Garden of Eden would probably also try to convince men to become sons of the Patriarch Abraham (Galatians 3:7,29) and to organize society Patriarchally (by families) rather than politically (by conquest). This is in fact the agenda of "Vine & Fig Tree."
You don't have to tell me that many who call themselves "followers of Christ" or "students of Scripture" have denied that the Bible speaks authoritatively and infallibly of a past six-day creation, or of the future Edenification of the Earth. I think they're wrong. They don't want to appear to be "unscientific." They regularly "vote" for politicians in order to take vengeance on their enemies. Why do they call themselves "Christians"?
In sharp contrast to this "Vine & Fig Tree" perspective which we find in the Bible, we have the "Survival of the Fittest," embraced by Fascism, Socialism, Communism, and the nationalism, militarism, materialism, and cutthroat, State-buttressed "competition" of what is sometimes called "capitalism."
You don't have to tell me that many who call themselves "Darwinists" or "scientific" have denied that the Evolutionary world-view requires racism, totalitarianism, lawlessness, and the Nazification of the Earth. I think they're wrong.
Let's be consistent. If you believe something about the Bible, then be consistent. It's the Creator of the universe speaking, or it's a joke.
"Vine & Fig Tree" imagery pervades the Bible. Christianity is a religion of service, not conquest. Who can seriously maintain that the Ethical World-View of Abraham, Moses, Isaiah, and Jesus is the same as that of Darwin, Hitler, Marx, Mussolini, or Rockefeller?
But Jesus says if we are not for Him, we are against Him (Matthew 12:30). If we are not seeking to establish a Biblical culture, we are unwittingly working for the establishment of a totalitarian, homosexual, racist empire. We are enemies of Jesus.
Many people do not think of themselves as being enemies of Jesus just because they believe in Evolutionism. They have been told that this theory is "scientific." Doesn't Jesus want us to be "scientific"?
Before the "Enlightenment," scientists were Christian. In fact, science can be said to exist only in Biblical cultures. Isaac Newton wrote more books about the Bible than he did on physics. They believed science was possible because the creation was a product of an orderly God. The question we ask for now is, Why did scientists all of a sudden abandon Biblical Creationism and embrace the theory of evolution?
Here's the answer in a nutshell: It wasn't "the facts." When evolution swept the world, there were no "facts" to support it. It was supported by a faith - a faith against God; a desire to get out from under His Law as recorded in the Bible.
Fable: In 1831 a divinity school drop-out began formulating the tenets of a bizarre new religion that, playing on the hopes and fears of the post-Christian world, and embraced by dictators and industrialists around the world, would eventually become the largest pseudo-scientific religious cult in the modern age. Without his degree in theology, and lacking a degree in any natural science, he set sail to gather anecdotes from nature to illustrate his new religion.
His timing was perfect. Men and nations were rebelling against the Christianity of the Catholics and the Reformers. A "re-birth" of Greco-Roman Caesarism - a pagan view of nature, and an elitist, stratified view of social classes - left men and women panting for some new religion that would spell freedom from responsibility under God and yet still present an aura of "scientific respectability."
At last the creed was formulated. Drawing from various ancient religions - from that of the Pharaohs of Egypt, the Emperors of Babylon and China, the philosopher-kings of Greece, and the Caesars of Rome - our seminary drop-out finally published his Confession of Faith. On November 24, 1859, the first edition was released and by sundown every single copy had been zealously purchased by devoted throngs of pre-publication converts.
Fact: The Seminary drop-out was Charles Darwin; the book was The Origin of Species; the rest is history.
Sure, we took some liberties with the story - but only in that we presented the facts in a perspective somewhat unlike the one most of us are taught in the State's schools.
It is clear (and we have demonstrated it elsewhere) that - far from being "proven" - the difficulties in Darwin's thesis were - to use Joseph Hooker's word - "appalling"; the task of finding "evidence" to "prove" the theory was, to quote Dobzhansky, "the paramount task which biologists faced in the closing decades of the 19th century." It is thus also clear that the devout fervor which surrounded the publication of Darwin's work was not "scientific," but religious to the core.
Or perhaps we might say, "anti-religious." For most men of the 19th century, "religion" was just another word for "Christianity."
Granted, many who embraced Darwin rejected much in the institutional church which is
itself "anti-Christian." We join the Evolutionists in opposing "the
Church." But many evolutionists also self-consciously opposed the Bible. They had
knowledge - perhaps a vague premonition, perhaps a studied understanding - that the
Bible was utterly opposed to the kind of lawless, self-centered, materialistic lives
they wanted to lead. Darwin "liberated" them. We oppose them. We reject the
hidden agenda of these "Social Darwinists."
It is not our purpose to prove that all who believe in Evolution are Nazis. As we said above, many reject "Christianity" because of what is done in the name of Christ by "christians" who do not really want Micah's prophecy to come true. What is important to understand is that the great majority of those who shouted "Hosanna" to Darwin were motivated by greed, class hatred, militarism, and a thirst for political power - to say nothing of their "private" (sexual) lives. The broad cultural acceptance which Darwin received was generated by people who hold ideas which are diametrically opposed to the Bible's "Vine & Fig Tree" imagery, and, hopefully, to the ideals which you yourself hold. Recognizing what motivated an acceptance of Evolutionism may help you see why you should reject Fascist Evolutionism and embrace Radical Creationism.
RACISM Few people are aware that one of the reasons William Jennings Bryan opposed the teaching of Evolution in public schools was that he feared the teaching of racism. This is because few people are aware of how racist non-Christian scientists had become by 1859. John S. Haller, Jr., has demonstrated that virtually all 19th-century evolutionists believed in the evolutionary superiority of the white race and the inferiority of others, especially the Negro race. There may have been some evolutionists who opposed the slave trade, but they generally held - with Darwin himself - that the Negro was a backward race, doomed to become extinct in future evolutionary competition with the more favored races.
Racism is an easy justification for war. We will see this below; we can see it in the words of Darwin himself:
I could show fight [sic] on natural selection having done more for the progress of civilization than you seem inclined to admit. Remember what risk the nations of Europe ran, not so many centuries ago, of being overwhelmed by the Turks, and how ridiculous such an idea now is? The more civilized so-called Caucasian races have beaten the Turkish hollow in the struggle for existence. Looking to the world at no very distant date, what an endless number of the lower races will have been eliminated by the higher civilized races throughout the world.
What a pleasant thought!
OK; so racism is no longer as trendy as it was a hundred years ago.
Still, ostensibly non-racist Bible-bashers continue telling us that "Evolution was immediately accepted by scientists of the day as true" and that we too should reject Biblical Patriarchy and bow before the shrine of Darwin. But if scientists had not been motivated by racism, Evolutionism might not have been so unanimously acclaimed.
What else motivated the "universal acceptance of Evolution"?
ANTI-FAMILIAL SEX In the Bible, the Family is the central unit of social organization. The discipline and self-sacrifice required by Biblical Laws governing the Family produces competence, social energy, and an ability to deal with frustrations without resorting to violence.
In stark contrast to this view of life, marriage, and the sexes, is a view which legitimizes and even extols the idea of immediate sexual gratification, using anyone of either sex to achieve desired pleasures. Prostitution, homosexuality, promiscuity, pedophilia, and incest are not forbidden in the modern world. And in a world which is evolving toward the unknown, empowered by the unthinking, there is no basis for forbidding anything. "All is permitted," as Dostoyevsky observed.
The Marquis de Sade declared that if sexual gratification could be obtained either by dominating and torturing another, or by being so abused, then it is good to do so. His writings preceded Darwin's by 50 years, but many who embraced Darwin found therein a "scientific" justification for sadism, masochism, and other forms of deviance from Christian Family forms. As Darwin noted,
A man who has no assured and no present belief in the existence of a personal God or a future existence with retribution and rewards, can have for his rule of life, as far as I can see, only to follow those impulses and instincts which are the strongest or which seem to him the best ones.
What seemed best to the Marquis de Sade was power over others. Whips and chains excite some; still others, perhaps in a graphic and ritual display of the "truth" of Evolutionism, gain sexual gratification through intercourse with animals. As we move from Anti-Family Sex to a third motivation for rejecting the Bible and embracing Evolutionism, ask yourself the question, "What would my life be like if those practicing these kinds of 'alternative life styles' were to gain political power over me and my Family?" "What will the next generation act like if these people write their school text-books?"
FASCISM The desire for sexual "liberation" and the quest for God-like power over others are admitted to be the prime motivations for belief in the non-Christian religion of Meaningless Cosmic Evolutionism. Aldous Huxley, grandson of "Darwin's bulldog," Sir Thomas Huxley, has frankly confessed,
I had motives for not wanting the world to have meaning; consequently assumed that it had none, and was able without any difficulty to find satisfying reasons for this assumption. The philosopher who finds no meaning in the world is not concerned exclusively with a problem in pure metaphysics, he is also concerned to prove that there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do, or why his friends should not seize political power and govern in the way that they find most advantageous to themselves. . . . For myself, the philosophy of meaninglessness was essentially an instrument of liberation, sexual and political.
Gertrude Himmelfarb, observing what we saw above under "Racism," has noted that
From the "preservation of favored races in the struggle for life," it was a short step to the preservation of favored individuals, classes, or nations - and from their preservation to their glorification. Social Darwinism has often been understood in this sense: as a philosophy exalting competition, power, and violence over convention, ethics, and religion. Thus it has become a portmanteau of nationalism, imperialism, militarism, and dictatorship, of the cults of the hero, the superman, and the master race.
Recent expressions of this philosophy, such as Mein Kampf, are, unhappily, too familiar to require exposition here. And it is by an obvious process of analogy and deduction that they are said to derive from Darwinism. Nietzsche predicted that this would be the consequence if the Darwinian theory gained general acceptance:
If the doctrines of sovereign Becoming, of the liquidity of all . . . species, of the lack of any cardinal distinction between man and animal - doctrines which I consider true but deadly - are hurled into the people for another generation . . . then nobody should be surprised when . . . brotherhoods with the aim of robbery and exploitation of the non-brothers . . . will appear on the arena of the future.
Himmelfarb is right in saying that such conclusions are arrived at by "an obvious process of analogy and deduction." She is dreaming when she asserts that the connections between Evolutionism and totalitarianism are "too familiar to require exposition here." They are not familiar.
The connections are suppressed.
The self-centered "ME-generation" of the late 20th century is utterly disconnected from the ideological movements of the early 20th century. The State's schools have sent Secular Humanism's voluminous failures down the Orwellian "Memory Hole."
Volume after volume has poured from the publishing houses describing every phase of the Hitler regime, but their writers are so timidly afraid of being classed as anti-evolutionary "fundamentalists" by the high-priests of Evolutionism that one may search through their books by the hundreds and scarcely find a mention of evolution or Charles Darwin.
Nevertheless, the rise of war and fascism in the 20th century is inescapably attributable to the rise of Evolutionism; and the rise of Evolutionism is attributable to the propaganda machines of the Emperors who loved the Theory of Evolution precisely because it was useful in justifying their total war against Eden.
But then, perhaps the connections are familiar enough: Richard Hofstadter's book, Social Darwinism and American Thought, records the great chorus of voices which united in praising the word of Darwin for the light it bestows on how nations, businesses, and relations between economic classes should be governed. Wallbank and Taylor's text, Civilization Past and Present, evidences their conclusion that Darwin's theory of the "survival of the fittest" "became a vogue that swept western thought in the late nineteenth century. It . . . became a convenient doctrine for justifying various economic and political theories." Nietzsche, for example,
ridiculed democracy and socialism for protecting the worthless and weak and hindering the strong. Social Darwinism and the antidemocratic cult of naked power, as preached by advocates like Nietzsche, were laying the foundations of fascism, which would one day plunge the world into the most terrible convulsion in its history.
Ashley Montagu comments on an inflammatory book by Freiderich von Bernhardi, Germany and the Next War:
"War," declared Bernhardi, "is a biological necessity;" it "is as necessary as the struggle of the elements of Nature;" it "gives a biologically just decision, since its decisions rest on the very nature of things." "The whole idea of arbitration represents a presumptuous encroachment on the natural laws of development," for "what is right is decided by the arbitration of war." In proof thereof such notions of Darwin's as "The Struggle for Existence," "Natural Selection," and the "Survival of the Fittest" are invoked with sententiousness quite military both in logic and in sense. According to Bernhardi, it is plainly evident to anyone who makes a study of plant and animal life that "war is a universal law of nature." This declaration and fortification of Germany's will to war - for it had the highest official sanction and approval - was published in 1911. Three years later the greatest holocaust the world had ever known was launched. . . .
Mussolini was strengthened in his belief that violence was basic to social transformation by the philosophy of Nietzsche. Mussolini's attitude was completely dominated by Evolutionism. In public utterances he repeatedly used the Darwinian catchwords while he mocked at perpetual peace: it would only hinder the evolutionary process.
Likewise Hitler based his politics on Darwin. Jews must be segregated, he urged in Mein Kampf, to avoid mixed marriages; were they to occur, all nature's efforts "to establish an evolutionary higher stage of being may thus be rendered futile."
Sir Arthur Keith, an evolutionist, writing just after World War II, observed,
The German Fuhrer, as I have consistently maintained, is an evolutionist; he has consciously sought to make the practice of Germany conform to the theory of evolution. . . .
To see evolutionary measures and tribal morality being applied vigorously to the affairs of a great modern nation, we must turn again to Germany of 1942. We see Hitler devoutly convinced that evolution produces the only real basis for a national policy. . . . The means he adopted to secure the destiny of his race and people were organized slaughter, which has drenched Europe in blood. . . . Such conduct is highly immoral as measured by every scale of ethics, yet Germany justifies it; it is consonant with tribal or evolutionary morality. Germany has reverted to the tribal past, and is demonstrating to the world, in their naked ferocity, the methods of evolution.
If Marx was not "converted" by the preaching of Darwin, he was certainly "sanctified" by it. Jacques Barzun notes that
In an age of social Darwinism, the combination of the ideas of struggle, of historical evolution, and of progress proved irresistible. The Marxists became merely a sect in the larger church . . . .
Marx wished to dedicate his book Das Kapital to Darwin, but Darwin declined the offer, thinking it would have an adverse effect on the popularity of his own books.
He had little to worry about. While Modernism was sweeping the Bible under the rug, Evolutionism literally swept the globe. And its chief propagandists were Hitler, Mussolini, and their totalitarian ilk, who, early in their "careers," were well-respected by the United States aristocracy because they were "scientific" social reformers who defended "law and order." Nazism may have been (temporarily) forced underground, but the anti-Christian world-and-life-view it so successfully propagated remains the centerpiece of the Dominant Culture. The Christian Patriarch can have no part in it.
"CAPITALISM" Social Darwinism in Economics is perhaps more familiar to some. Wrongly called "laissez-faire capitalism," it actually means using the State to put your competitors out of business; ethics must not stand in the way of the "Survival of the Fittest."
The railroad magnate James J. Hill, manipulating to get more railways under his control, said that "the fortunes of railroad companies are determined by the law of the survival of the fittest."
Andrew Carnegie, who made his fortune in the State-protected steel industry, describes his conversion to Evolutionism upon reading Darwin and Herbert Spencer:
I remember that light came as in a flood and all was clear. Not only had I got rid of theology and the supernatural, but I had found the truth of evolution.
John D. Rockefeller, who, like so many, attempted to seduce Christians into Evolutionist harlotry, propagated his religion in Christian Sunday School classes. His "testimony" was inspiring:
The growth of a large business is merely a survival of the fittest. . . . This is not an evil tendency in business. It is merely the working out of a law of nature and a law of God.
Needless to say, the "God" of John D. Rockefeller and Adolph Hitler is not the God of Micah and Jesus.
But these are the roots of corporate fascism in America.
They are also the roots of Racism
. . . and we are now seeing the fruit of this deadly tree.
George Gaylord Simpson, one of the highest of Evolutionism's high priests, who ministered in the parish of Harvard University, has pontificated that Darwin
finally and definitely established evolution as a fact, no longer a speculation or an alternative hypothesis for scientific investigation.
This is a lie.
If we are "normal" or "average" Americans, then we have been taught this lie. We are continually bombarded with lies about Man as god and the State as Savior. And we believe these lies. Only if we are radical creationists are we cleansing our minds of lies and becoming effective in standing against the violence, fascism, and racism of the Modern World. We are surrounded by the dead and dying, victims of Darwin and the Secular Humanists, and yet we think that we will not be touched and that God will not hold us accountable.
And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2 Thessalonians 2:12
Cosmic meaninglessness is a lie.
Political totalitarianism is a lie.
Sexual "freedom" is a lie.
War is a lie.
"The Truth shall make you free."
Jesus came to bring the "salvation" described by the Old Testament prophets, which preeminently meant a decentralized spread of peace and wholeness across the globe, free of secular militarism and Humanistic empires. God's will would be done on earth as it is in heaven. The Prophet Micah said people would one day put God's Law into practice, beat their swords into plowshares, and be free from the despotic genocidal tendencies of would-be gods, sitting peacefully under their "Vine & Fig Tree."
