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.

Liberal-Progressivism’s Contradictions

Liberal-progressivism prides itself on being scientific and ridicules as ignorant superstition the Constitution’s foundation in our Judeo-Christian heritage.  In fact, liberal-progressivism is a ramshackle collection of inconsistent hypotheses that never in human history have worked as predicted by liberal-progressivism’s self-appointed elite.

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:

Al Gore And Obama Are Steering Us Into The Abyss

Green energy in Germany and Spain, two of Obama’s models for U.S. energy policy, has been an unmitigated disaster.  Both nations are trying to reverse green energy policies that have ravaged consumers’ energy budgets, stifled industry, and sharply reduced employment.

Obama Remains Bent On Economic Suicide

Obama Take Heed: Aussies Repeal ‘Economy Killer’ Carbon Tax

The best that can be said for Obama and his liberal-progressive supporters is that they are ignorant of economic reality.

The other explanation is that, as worshippers of the collectivized, socialistic political state, they are driven by faith that destroying economic prosperity for the present generation will produce a magically better human condition for future generations.  That’s, of course, the same rationale that led liberal-progressives in the 1920s and 1930s to support Lenin’s and Stalin’s liquidation of tens of millions of Russian citizens.

A Brief Overview Of Darwinian Improbability

Barton Bennett emailed a link to Douglas Ell’s lecture at MIT outlining the mathematical near impossibility for life to have been created by random chance and for all life forms to have evolved purely by purposeless chance.
