"Darwin Day" is coming to a school near you
"Darwin Day" is coming to a school near you on February 12th.
So let's look at some of the Weird Views of Atheist Evolutionists:
Richard Dawkins, a devotee of Charles Darwin, said that everyone believed in evolution except "the ignorant, stupid or wicked."
In an article I wrote on the racist roots of Darwin's theory of evolutionI pointed out that Darwin believed that there is no ultimate foundation for ethics; that there is no ultimate meaning in life; and that free-will is a human myth. Let's not forget that Darwin was an atheist himself.
But not only atheist advocates of evolution are promoting the theory of evolution, but the mainstream media is as well, such as when MSNBC did a whole series on where the human species is headed in Human Evolution at the Crossroads...discussing some far out ideas including Unihumans.
There are some atheists who believe in 'intelligent design,' but not by a Creator. They believe an alien life force is a possible option for explaining creation, and they are serious.
Many may be surprised to know that Francis Crick, Nobel Prize winner and one of the discoverers of the DNA, believes that life forms were sent to earth in a space ship by a dying civilization. As a matter of fact, both discoverers of the DNA, Watson and Crick, are outspoken atheists.
Could these, and other such worldviews, be a force behind the battle over allowing creationism to be taught in schools? And why teachers debate how to address creationism "without stifling creative thinking?" Yes, I think so.
While objective scientists are investigating whether or not there is empirical evidence that life on earth was designed by an Intelligent Designer, and despite the fact that ID is called a theory, many in the scientific community do not recognize it as a theory, but a 'religious view' and therefore reject ID.
This, of course, begs the following Questions:
1) Why would scientists not welcome the search for evidence in regards to the possibility of Intelligent Design when it is the very (purported) nature of science to explore all possibilities?
2) Is science broad enough to allow for theories of human origins which incorporate the acts of an intelligent Designer?
3) And is the teaching of the theory of Intelligent Design appropriate in public education, using scientific evidence, the same that is claimed to be used in teaching Darwinism?
Scientific materialism which is quietly ruling in schools is not based so much on sound science as on a worldview that leaves God out.
The theory of evolution has only existed since the 19th century. Christianity has existed for over 2,000 and Judaism, longer still. All religions acknowledge a Creator/God. So, is the debate over teaching creationism or intelligent design alongside evolution in schools a sound scientific battle... or a religious/worldview battle? The answer is obvious.
