Darwinians Have A Mythical Bridge To Sell You

Researchers Ran a Massive Yearlong Experiment to Get Bacteria to Evolve. Guess What Happened?

Believers in the religion of secular materialism will insist that any experiment should last at least a few million years to allow for the slow accretion of mutations that would lead to creation of a new species.  Perhaps so, but in the mean time Darwinians can’t point to any evidence of the predicted evolutionary process, other than minor variations within a single species.  Farmers and animal breeders have been familiar with such species manipulation for thousands of years.

No evidence of any kind in fossil records reveals any example of slow changes of one species into a wholly different species, let alone evolution from one genus to another.  Such evidence must be present if there truly is such a thing as Darwinian evolution in the real world.

Faith, without proof, in this nonsense besmirches science.

Only The Socialist Government Knows What’s Good For You

What you want is not worth consideration.  Let Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid tell you what you should want and what they intend to make you swallow.

Robert Curry brought this article to my attention:

‘To Hell With the Constitution!’

My book, The Liberal Jihad: The Hundred Year War Against The Constitution, explains what corrupted the original ethos that was the foundation of the Constitution.

Darwin, Liberal-Progressivism And World War I

Charles Darwin’s theories (The Origin of Species - 1859 and The Descent of Man - 18871) are a major foundational element in the statist, collectivistic doctrine of liberal-progressive-socialism, which produced the barbarity of the 20th century’s wars that killed tens of millions of soldiers and civilians. 

Darwin wrote that evolutionary survival of the fittest would lead the world’s superior races eventually to exterminate inferior races.  His cousin, Sir Francis Galton, borrowed Darwin’s ideas in 1883 to found eugenics, premised on the need to expedite evolution by eliminating inferior individuals in order to prevent mongrelization of the human race.

In the first decades after publication of Darwin’s ideas, they gained wide support among European and American liberal-progressives.  Karl Marx was delighted with Darwin’s evolutionary theories, which Marx hailed as supporting socialism’s ultimate triumph.  Darwin’s most influential contemporary backer in England, Thomas Huxley, declared that there was no such thing as sin; there was only the struggle for survival.  By 1886 Friedrich Nietzsche (Beyond Good and Evil), influenced by the prevailing vogue for Darwinian evolutionary theory, declared that “God is dead.”  Nietzsche’s conclusion remains the doctrine inculcated in our educational system today.

On the surface and in the popular press, the idea of progress in the late Victorian era was a reflection largely of the great strides in science and industry that were raising living standards everywhere.  But the idea of evolutionary progress had darker implications:

Racism, The All-Purpose Excuse

Liberal-progressive social policies have allowed too many blacks to avoid reality and to continue self-destructive cultural patterns.  Liberal-progressivism has worked assiduously to wipe out the spirit of individualism and self-reliance that was this nation’s founding ethos.

Walking Backwards

Liberals confusing cause and effect

Liberal-progressivism, a caste of mind that fancies itself to be scientific, produces a collection of upside down, backward prescriptions for social harmony and economic perfection.  In reality liberal-progressive “thinkers” display all the subtlety and attention to reality of someone assembling a pre-cut jigsaw puzzle and calling it artistic creation.

Constitutional Right To Riot?

Many leaders and citizens in the black community of Ferguson, MO, have called for an end to the riots, looting, property damage, and physical injury that erupted in the wake of the death of a black man shot by the police.

Not included among their number are professional rabble rousers like Al Sharpton or liberal-progressive media such as MSNBC, which have played up the Ferguson story night after night, attacking police “brutality” and supporting black rioters who shot at people, threw stones and bottles at police, while smashing and looting stores in the area.  Support for such overwrought “demonstrations” is a standard liberal-progressive vote-getting tactic intended to identify law-and-order with totalitarian thuggery.


Evidently, under the liberal-progressive, evolving Constitution paradigm, black mobs have special Constitutional rights that immunize them from prosecution.

Hubris (excessive pride or self-confidence leading to downfall)

Obama’s got it, in spades.

Read this editorial by Jackson Diehl, deputy editorial page editor of the Washington Post, one of the leading propagandizers of liberal-progressive-socialism.  Hat tip to Jonathan S. Tobin on the Commentary website.

To fix foreign policy mistakes, President Obama must first admit them


Quote:

This is not to argue that Obama should dispatch hundreds of thousands of U.S. ground troops to the region. The point is that a doctrine whose first priority is avoiding U.S. engagement is bound to fail. The goal must be offensive: to defeat those forces that are destroying Iraq and Syria, from the Islamic State to the homicidal regime of Bashar al- Assad. That can be accomplished only with U.S. military and political leadership. And it will require Obama to accept the conclusion he still bitterly resists: that he was wrong.

Judaism Exalts Life; Islam Glorifies Death

See John Steele Gordon’s piece in the Commentary Magazine website:

Understanding A Simple Question


...But while the Schleswig-Holstein question might have been hard to understand, the Israel-Palestinian question is not.  Indeed, as Dennis Prager explains in this short lecture, it couldn’t be simpler.
