Godless Evolution

Darwinists claim that Intelligent Design is really a religious agenda “dressed up in a cheap (scientific) tuxedo.” I believe that Darwinism is a scientific perversion in service of an anti-God social agenda.

In “Myths of Evolution” (12/17) I outlined the lies, frauds and coercions that have transformed the science of evolution by natural selection into political scientism. The first myth is that Darwinism is not hostile to the concept of God the Creator. In fact, it is now understood that Darwin wrote On the Origin of Species not primarily to introduce the concept of evolution (that was long known in scientific circles) but to “debunk the concept of supernatural intelligence.”

The budding Enlightenment disciples, naturalists and Marxists who were burdened by the restraints of the Judeo-Christian God now had their “get out of jail free card.” Darwin provided the “creation story” and its philosophical essence was scientific materialism. To the Darwinians nothing existed except matter, the laws of physics and blind chance.

The scientific fraud employed to support Darwinism and its employment for bloody, ruthless political purposes will be described in future posts. Here I’ll use the words of leading Darwinists to demonstrate the hostility of Darwinism to any belief in God.

Thomas Huxley who was Darwin’s friend and chief apologist invented the word “agnostic” and regarded humans as mere conscious automata. Today, the penchant to make evolution the intellectual linchpin of a wholly atheist outlook is manifest in the writings of Richard Dawkins, professor of public understanding of science at Oxford, "whose public understanding of human beings is that they are survival machines for genes."

When Friedrich Nietzsche in 1882 proclaimed the “death of God” he was announcing the world-shaking fact that God no longer played any role or had any influence in the lives of educated Europeans. Darwin taught them that mankind is not a special creation but merely the end result of millions of years of evolution.

American educational reformer John Dewey whose Manifesto launched the Humanist movement in 1933 decreed that the final demise of religion would usher in a new era of scientific and social progress. (Soon, Hitler and Stalin provided stunning examples of godless man’s progressive capabilities.)

Julian Huxley, honored speaker at the centennial celebration of Origin in 1959, noted that “in the evolutionary pattern there is no longer either need nor room for the supernatural.”

The Nobel laureate James D. Watson, co-discoverer of the molecular structure of DNA, declared that "one of the greatest gifts science has brought to the world is continuing elimination of the supernatural."

Then there are these truly remarkable statements by Cornell Biology Professor William Provine:

“Modern science directly implies that the world is organized strictly in accordance with mechanistic principles. There are no purposive principles in nature. There are no gods and no designing forces that are rationally detectable.”

“Modern Science directly implies that there are no inherent moral or ethical laws, no absolute guiding principles for human society.”

“Finally, free will simply does not exist.”

Among the intellectual elites in the National Academy of Sciences, 95% of biologists are materialists and therefore atheists. Those at the top of the profession have a profound influence on what is taught in the schools.


Is there any doubt that these “proponents of evolutionary biology go well beyond science to claim that evolution both manifests and requires a materialistic philosophy that leaves no room for God, the soul or the presence of divine grace in human life.” No wonder many parents are legitimately concerned about what their children are learning.

To many religious conservatives, Darwinists are “hell-bent on cramming atheistic materialism down the throats of impressionable children, in the guise of science, thereby robbing their children of the faith that has saved Western civilization from the fate of godless nations.”


Still the village atheists are shrill and aggressive for the simple reason that the successive revolutions in thought that have furthered their cause—the Enlightenment and Darwinism—have been popular busts. Polls regularly show that at least 90% of Americans believe in God; more than 80% agree that the deity is regularly performing miracles in today’s world; more than 80% also believe in an afterlife and Heaven.

On the other hand, no less a religious authority than the late pope, John Paul II, said that evolution is more than just a hypothesis. It is a thrilling theory that has demonstrated its explanatory power. Michael Behe explains that Christians believe God could make life in any way He saw fit and if He chose the mechanism of natural selection then who are we to tell Him otherwise? “Christians should be thoughtful and follow the evidence where it leads, confident that the truth of nature does not contradict the truth of God.”


This is the guiding principle of Intelligent Design.

I tend to agree with you {amazing} but my belief in GOD , as taught to me by Jesuits at Loyola, are the principles of Causuality and Design. However, at the end, neither is the ultimate proof of GOD's existence, the proof is in the individual heart of a person. My personal God is the one I carry within.

Whether Darwinism or Religion therories are taught in schools is dependent on family issues. I believe in God although I don't agree totaly with old testament readings. I firmly agree with Mathew, Mark,Luke, and John in the New Testament.

I also firmly believe that God is a Democrat.
