Darwinism and the adoption of Chinese Marxism
According to James Pusey, writing in Nature, "Charles Darwin's banner was first unfurled in China during the Reform Movement of 1895-98, in response to China's defeat in the Sino-Japanese War." There were two groups seeking change: the reformers, who were loyal to the Manchu Qing Dynasty, and the revolutionaries, who wanted a clean break with the past.
The reformers and the revolutionaries debated vigorously "with both sides wildly waving Darwin's banner" The leaders of these movements imbibed the message of scientific racism coming from America and Europe and presented themselves as 'fit' to rule...

China's awakening to the outside world was probably a fair amount of both and Darwinism would make a workable antidote to the first and a palliative to the second.
Psst!...The book burners are their way!!
What’s ironic is that I hear that scientists are actually functionally freer to question Darwinism in China than they are here in Western nations.
Thanks for the ping!
....so you blame the first gunmaker for all deaths at the working end of the gun? This first guy that made gunpowder?
Speaking of book burners:
Why I Published a New Origin
By Ray Comfort
When I discovered that the famous On the Origin of Species was public domain, I decided to publish it myself and write an Introduction and give away copies of the book to university students, in honor of the book’s 150th year of publication.
But when Kirk Cameron (my TV cohost on The Way of the Master) and I produced a short video clip explaining what I wanted to do and posted it online, we kicked a hornet’s nest. A big one.
Why are many atheists so angry? Why are they talking about book burnings, threatening to resist the giveaway and rip out the Introduction, etc.? Why was richarddawkins.net encouraging people to collect copies and rip out the Introduction? ...
Above: Lands where teaching of evolution was mandatory.
Little known fact: mass murderer Jeffrey Dahmer murdered and ate 17 men and boys because all opposed teaching science in public schools. Dahmer, who had taken biology classes in schools, was motivated by a fanatical loyalty to Charles Darwin.
On April 14, 1865 evolutionist John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Abraham Lincoln during a play at Ford's Theater in Washington. In the second act, Lincoln was seen laughing at a line in the play, "Our American Cousin" which mocked Darwin and the then new theory of evolution. Enraged, Booth grabbed a derringer pistol and shot the President.
Yes, I saw that. And some still say Darwinism isn’t a religion....That Comfort fellow... How dare he?
I’m convinced male pattern baldness is also a byproduct of Darwinism. And probably gingivitis as well.
You neglect to mention that the Bubonic Plague in medieval Europe was caused by irresponsible alchemists taught by.. you got it.
Charles Darwin died of a heart attack at a time when heart attacks were relatively rare. More people died of things like cholera, tuberculosis, etc. As belief in Darwinism has exploded, so has the incidence of heart disease. Obviously, Darwinism hardens your arteries.
LOL...you gotta love his audacity!
Are you sure? Because I'd read that the Plague, like Swine Flu, was a curse from God upon the 1/3 of Europeans who followed the evo-religious cult of Darwin. Native Americans were spared, because all of them were pious Creationist Christians.
There is no concrete biblical evidence of this.
Unlike the documented biblical FACT that Darwin shot all the dinosaurs as they exited the Ark.
Believe it or not, in Ancient Greece, scientists were rounded up and EXECUTED for challenging Darwinian Evolution. Socrates, a noted creationist, was allowed to drink hemlock -- a deadly poison -- and commit suicide, instead of be executed, as a sign of respect for his great philosophical accomplishments.
Darwin wasn't allowed on the Ark, because there was only one Darwin, and Noah only gave tickets to couples. Darwin was forced to spend the 40 days and 40 nights on a German U-Boat given to him by HITLER. That U-Boat is now marooned on top of Mount Ararat, where its remains are frequently mistaken for the Ark.
The Discovery Channel had a great show about that.
You can still see the gun ports Darwin used when shooting the dinosaurs.
This has nothing to do with the Theory of Evolution or the process of evolution.
Pinning everything bad in the world on your opponents is an old tactic.
The Discovery Channel is a Darwinist plot, sir. You probably saw that documentary on a respected science website, such as ICR.
I must say, you sound much, much, more logical and reasonable than you usually do.
The Discovery Channel is controlled by the Knights Templar, a violent Darwinist organization ostensibly loyal to the Catholic Church. Founded in 1129, the Knights were officially disbanded in 1307, but they have continued to flourish underground for the past seven centuries.
In the last hundred years, they have had enormous success getting Darwinist propaganda in front of every schoolchild in America. We can't fight Darwin without fighting his Knights.

From the full:
The reformers had to find hope in On the Origin of Species. And they did, but their most optimistic interpretations were based on a handful of mistranslations, themselves based on a series of misunderstandings. (Westerners leapt to these misunderstandings as well without the benefit of mistranslations.)
.....ya don't need the Theory of Evolution....a BIOLOGICAL Theory....to go 'splaining why you're gonna purposely kill off the weak in your country or take any other social actions with the ruse/excuse of making it stronger.
Subtle errors of translation, however, went with them: "natural selection" came out as "natural elimination"; the "survival of the fittest" became the "superior survive and the inferior are defeated"; and, causing the most confusion of all, "evolution" became jinhua lun, "the theory of progressive change". Strictly speaking, Darwin did not prove that evolution led to progress; to this day, that mistranslation makes it hard to discuss evolution in Chinese. As Confucius said: "If terms are not correct, discourse is difficult."
Anyone can pervert a book or notion to suit their needs. (hint hint)
Can't the evo-atheists even come up with their own material anymore?...LOL!
As documented in that best-seller, The DarWinci Code.
I think Dawkins ought to get in touch with George Noory. He (Dawkins) would be a perfect guest for Coast To Coast AM. They go “bananas” over the subject of alien visitors on that program.
So Ray Comfort apologized for failing to do the proper research prior to presenting an argument that made him look like an utter fool
Well seeing how Dawkins has spent his whole life being a space cadet, I would imagine he would do quite well on a show like George Noory’s!
“I’m sorry I didn’t know WTF I was talking about.....but I’m still right if i explain it more clearly.”
....is no apology for being an ignorant fool manufacturing nonsense.
....and yet it still remains that God did not make the banana the perfect little food this fool claims it is......Man did.....leaving him with the only argument being...”Well, God made Man...so I’m still right.”
Wrong fool, your claim was made up nonsense and the rest is trying to wriggle yourself out of being caught showing ignorance.
OK....in your Absurdistan, “raggin’ on” and “making fun of” and “ridiculing” now equals “stealing material.”
You simply do not debate a BananaMan nut and elevate him to your level.
