Here is evolution for you:
http://upressonline.com/2012/03/fau-student-threatens-to-kill-professor-and-classmates/ This is very sad. And it seems crazy at first.
BUT THINK ABOUT IT. It is obvious to me what is going on here. Yes, I am guessing / reading between the lines. But I think it is very clear.
The class was being taught about EVOLUTION:
A fellow classmate, Rachel Bustamante, was sitting behind Carr prior to her outburst and noticed she had been avoiding looking at the professor until 11:35 a.m. thats when she snapped. The classmate reported that Kajiura was discussing attraction between peacocks when Carr raised her hand to ask her question about evolution. She asked it four times, and became increasingly upset each time Kajiuras answer failed to satisfy her.
DID YOU CATCH IT? The professor was discussing the evolutionary role of "attraction between peacocks."
In other words, how do animals / people choose a mate?
If you remember what evolution teaches, it teaches that INDIVIDUALS *MATE* BASED UPON PERCEIVED *SUPERIOR* CHARACTERISTICS for evolution.
So this Black woman Jonatha(?) Carr obviously perceives that BEING BLACK IS ASSUMED (by many) to be INFERIOR and that evolution means that men CHOOSE women based upon what is perceived to be SUPERIOR qualities.
What evolution means to Carr -- and who can blame her, logically? -- is that men are going to choose "BETTER" women than her, and she is not going to get chosen as a valuable person or desirable mate.
Hence, the discussion of how animals, like peacocks, CHOOSE A MATE based upon how they other one LOOKS.
So this Black woman is obviously perceiving that evolution means that men will choose the SUPERIOR candidate for mating and reproduction, and evolution produces "improvement" over time by men selecting SUPERIOR women -- meaning NOT HER.
Whereas Christianity teaches the value and infinite worth of E V E R Y human being in God's eyes, and that every man and woman is not only valuable just for who they are, but infinitely valuable in God's heart, evolution teaches that this Black woman is INFERIOR to other women, to be discarded and rejected in the evolutionary march toward perfection.
Buried in her thinking must be the idea that Black men (so the cliche goes, true or untrue) prefer White women over Black women. (I suspect this flows from Blacks being persecuted and wanting the affirmation of being valued by a perceied more powerful class, not because there is anything inherently superior about White women over Black women in an evolutionary sense.)
God looks over the vast diversity of human types and characteristics, and says IT IS GOOD: ALL OF IT. All of the vast differences and variety. There is no "better" or "worse" in God's eyes. There is no human being more (or less) valuable than this Black woman Carr. Everyone is equally cherished in God's heart.
Somewhere, if we can learn to follow God's plans (which unfortunately is much more difficult and mysterious than it sounds, and can be a frustrating search), God knows the PERFECT CHOICE of a man for Jonatha Carr.
NO, the man isn't perfect, any more than Miss Carr is perfect. No one is perfect. Marriage involves the strange situation of two VERY IMPERFECT human beings trying to live a life together without killing each other. Therein lies the challenge of learning to APPLY God's principles in real life. Marriage is like the "lab class" in comparison with the "class lecture." We get to put into practice during the week what God tries to teach us on Sunday.
But God says that if Miss Carr can put her trust in God's hands, there is a perfect choice of a mate for her. God doesn't move on our time table, and God can be frustrating sometimes. But in God Miss Carr lacks nothing.
However, evolution tells Miss Carr that life is a hostile, adversarial, dog-eat-dog COMPETITION in which she is necessarily going to be the LOSER because (in her mind, as she has been bombarded with negativity) being a Black woman puts her at the bottom of the list of choices.
Evolution means survival of the fittest and (she thinks) that ain't her.
Can you see now why she yells "I HATE EVOLUTION!"
The question is:
DO YOU HATE EVOLUTION, TOO?
For the very same reason that Miss Carr understandably hates evolution, shouldn't we all?
Evolution is not simply an irrelevant side show for those who believe in God.
EVOLUTION IS A DIRECT AND VIOLENT ASSAULT ON THE WORTH AND DIGNITY AND SELF IDENTITY OF HUMAN BEINGS, TEARING DOWN THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF THEMSELVES, AND PITTING BROTHER AGAINST BROTHER AND SISTER AGAINST SISTER, IN AN UNGODLY COMPETITION. Evolution breeds violence, hatred, depression, and despair.
There is not a single human being alive whom God does not want. And there is not a single human being alive whom God wants any more than any other.
Yet evolution tells this young Black woman - and any one else who has ever, temporarily, felt inferior for a moment in time -- that she is destined to be discarded by life, that she is trash to be excluded and rejected by the world.
Do you hate evolution with a passion, yet?
You mean you forgot about Ginny Thomas Clarence’s wife????
I’d also like to point out that two mating peacocks are gay...
Female peafowl are called peahens... So there might be even more to this..
Thanks for your clear and concise refutation of the author's argument!
What, after all, could be sillier than attacking a scientific explanation for an observed natural phenomenon merely because it causes some people to suffer self-esteem issues?
Gods message is: For God so loved the world He gave his only begotten Son...
And if people don't wake up and stop listening to those who would do politics under the color of science, the result will be infanticide on top of abortion:
What makes a living being a person with a right not to be killed? Animal-rights extremists would seem to have the easiest argument to make: that all sentient beings have a right to life. But champions of that argument must conclude that delousing a child is akin to mass murder; the rest of us must look for an argument that draws a smaller circle. Perhaps only the members of our own species, Homo sapiens, have a right to life? But that is simply chauvinism; a person of one race could just as easily say that people of another race have no right to life.
Similar to his argument for abortion, Singer argues that newborns lack the essential characteristics of personhood"rationality, autonomy, and self-consciousness"and therefore "killing a newborn baby is never equivalent to killing a person, that is, a being who wants to go on living."
And then there is Richard Dawkins, Oxford zoologist and activist for atheism who had this to say about God:
I first saw Mojo Nixon in San Diego in the mid-80s when he was with the Beat Farmers. "California Kid" and "Happy Boy" are classics.
That's what generations of Black "Leaders" have been telling people so why shouldn't she believe it to be true?
This is not what biology teaches. This author is delusional.
Of evolution? I suppose it depends on what you mean by evolution. Creationists don't have a problem with selective breeding but if you start with dogs, no matter how many generations you selectively breed, you still end up with a dog. Now if you could selectively breed to the point where you end up with something other than a dog, I'll be impressed.
Not like her name comes up on a daily (weekly, monthly, or really, even yearly) basis - but when ever it does, I can’t help thinking “I want to be IN Martha Quinn”
I watched the video.
The white guy behind her should have punched her out.
A broken nose or crushed larynx would have calmed her down.
No one should be allowed to behave like that in public without retribution.
The sheeple college students just sit and laughed and filmed.
They should have stopped the behavior.
I don’t mean to be cruel but your understanding of the principles of evolution is an ignorant caricature.
I have a good acquaintance type friend from Nigeria. She has
shown me some of the magazines they have down there, in English
no less...it shows many white women who are married to
rich powerful black men....my guess is that the LONG GREEN
(i.e. bucks) that is the most attractive color.
“Evolutions message to us all is: youre probably worthless.
Gods message is: For God so loved the world He gave his only begotten Son...”
Beautiful. Perfect. That goes a long way to help understand the differing behaviors of secular folks and Christians.
Wow, what a bunch of crock this editorial is.
Presuming to get into the mind of another human being, let alone one you don’t know having an irrational outburst? Talk about your political pandering.
This woman never articulated any of the suppositions this article makes, and is beligerent to everyone around her, including many other black women in the class.
This editorial is worthless. Whether you believe in evolution or not, this editorial is nothing more than political propoganda. Her screaming question of “Tell Me How Evolution Kills Black People” is so rediculous on its fact to try to argue it is because she percieves herself as a loser in lifes lottery because she was born black due to evolution is nonsense.
Someone forgets their meds, and its somehow an example of the evil of this or that... silliness.
excellent point...it can drive one a bit nuts when
someone trys to “dumb-down” evolutionary scenarios so
that people can “believe” in the “truth” of microbes to
I still don’t know why orders of magnitude more
complex and energy çonsuming “meisois” developed, when mitosis
works so well, and the mitotic organisms are so successful
at survival(sometimes using bits of DNA from plasmids,viruses,
other bacterial fusion.
no, it is really bad to hate anything as Jesus told us to love our enemies! But I know evolution is a sophisticated type of mind control and I stand against it and I would never subject my children to it’s doubt inducing influence! Ever!
Gagdad Bob's insight bears repeating. Indeed, to me, with this observation he nails the "bottom line" epistemic problem of Darwinist theory.
Darwinism holds that Nature uses natural selection to (blindly as it were) produce "better" or fitter species: Species change; they "progress." But absent an absolute standard or criterion of judgment, how can we speak of progress at all? It seems all we really can speak about is directionless change in directionless Nature....
But if Nature is directionless, then where do all its observable regularities come from?
Thanks so very much for the outstanding link, dear Matchett-PI!
