Skip to comments.Don’t Call it “Darwinism” [religiously defended as "science" by Godless Darwinists]
Posted on 01/28/2009 11:36:17 AM PST by Coyoteman
We will see and hear the term Darwinism a lot during 2009, a year during which scientists, teachers, and others who delight in the accomplishments of modern biology will commemorate the 200th anniversary of Darwins birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species. But what does Darwinism mean? And how is it used? At best, the phrase is ambiguous and misleading about science. At worst, its use echoes a creationist strategy to demonize evolution.
In summary, then, Darwinism is an ambiguous term that impairs communication even about Darwins own ideas. It fails to convey the full panoply of modern evolutionary biology accurately, and it fosters the inaccurate perception that the field stagnated for 150 years after Darwins day. Moreover, creationists use Darwinism to frame evolutionary biology as an ism or ideology, and the public understanding of evolution and science suffers as a result. True, in science, we do not shape our research because of what creationists claim about our subject matter. But when we are in the classroom or otherwise dealing with the public understanding of science, it is entirely appropriate to consider whether what we say may be misunderstood. We cannot expect to change preconceptions if we are not willing to avoid exacerbating them. A first step is eschewing the careless use of Darwinism.

I rather liked #23 too =)
I’m not just suggesting, I’m saying that evolution is not science and is of Satan. It has no place in Conservatism.
Feel free to demonstrate all of the above.
Satan has everything to do with this thread, because the thread is about Darwinism and evo-atheism, which are of Satan. It matters not how long one has been posting here, it matters what they have been posting. I have been posting the Word, and evo-atheists have been posting the words of the Deceiver.
Remember, God is the final Admin.
You keep posting that, but you’ve never posted a word as to why we should believe you.
You're on the wrong forum to be moderating. This is FR not DC.
Or did you forget where you were?
Read the Word. God wrote down everything we needed to know. It’s written in plain English for even the slow to understand.
Your belief has no role in science.
God created science just like He created everything else. Got news for you. God and freedom of religion take no back seat to anyone on this forum. Freedom of religion reigns supreme in this land. If you don’t like it, shove it.
If "God wrote down everything we needed to know," as you just posted, what are you doing on the internet? It's not mentioned in the Bible.
You may post anything you wish to this thread (or any other). Coyoteman lives in his own little world. He has absolutely no authority whatsoever on this forum.
Let's pretend, shall we, that this really is a science thread.
TGBTG has made an assertion, namely, "Evo-Atheism has no role in conservatism, nor on any thread on this board other than to show the depths that Satan will go to spread his lies."
Kindly demonstrate, scientifically speaking, 1) The Theory of Evolution is the same as "Evo-Atheism," taking care to define exactly what "Evo-Atheism" might be, 2) That "Evo-Atheism" has no role in conservatism, listing any other scientific theories that are forbidden by conservatism, and that the Theory of Evolution is A) a lie, and B) originating with Satan. Satan having exactly what to do with a thread on science?
Thank you, gumlegs, for your lucid post and spot-on questions. I've been wondering for some time how it is that somehow understanding of science (and things like evolution) are satanic, atheistic, NEA loving, non-conservative, and the like. Where in the world has this warped view come from? Certainly I never see any evidence of such, but yet, it is stated so often here. How is it that conservatism is equated now to being anti-science (except of course, science that produces such lovely things as antibiotics for diseases, medical technologies such as MRI's, life-saving surgical techniques, your computer, your iPod, and all the other things you enjoy daily)?
I guess I'll be burning in hell with the rest of you evos, while the others gleefully pour on the BBQ sauce and watch.
In my world science is not equated with satanism.
However, your world is increasingly becoming overrun with extreme fringe elements who do equate science with satanism.
If you would rather keep those fringe posters, and discourage the scientists from posting here, then fringe posters is what you''ll end up with.
From a statement I posted on our front page several years ago:
“As a conservative site, Free Republic is pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-Constitution, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-private property rights, pro-limited taxes, pro-capitalism, pro-national defense, pro-freedom, and-pro America. We oppose all forms of liberalism, socialism, fascism, pacifism, totalitarianism, anarchism, government enforced atheism, abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, racism, wacko environmentalism, judicial activism, etc. We also oppose the United Nations or any other world government body that may attempt to impose its will or rule over our sovereign nation and sovereign people. We believe in defending our borders, our constitution and our national sovereignty.”
“Free Republic is private property. It is not a government project, nor is it funded by government or taxpayer money. We are not a publicly owned entity nor are we an IRS tax-free non-profit organization. We pay all applicable taxes on our income. We are not connected to or funded by any political party, news agency, or any other entity. We sell no merchandise, product or service, and we offer no subscriptions or paid memberships. We accept no paid advertising or promotions. We are funded solely by donations (non tax deductible gifts) from our readers and participants.”
“We aggressively defend our God-given and first amendment guaranteed rights to free speech, free press, free religion, and freedom of association, as well as our constitutional right to control the use and content of our own personal private property. Despite the wailing of the liberal trolls and other doom & gloom naysayers, we feel no compelling need to allow them a platform to promote their repugnant and obnoxious propaganda from our forum. Free Republic is not a liberal debating society. We are conservative activists dedicated to defending our rights, defending our constitution, defending our republic and defending our traditional American way of life.”
I’ll let you know if I ever change my policy in regards to aggressively defending our God-given and constitutionally protected right to freedom of religion. In the meantime, you can knock off any attempts to control who posts what on FR. If you don’t like the way we run FR, you can always post elsewhere.
Far more than one FRevo calls any non-evo a creationist.
Matter of fact, the tendency is to take anyone who does not hold to the hardline, naturalistic no-God allowed position on the ToE and cram them into a flat earth, heliocentric, 6 day, 6,000 year YEC, Bible literalist box and then mock and ridicule them regardless of what their position is.
Oh, and let's not forget the *any challenge to the ToE is not scientific, it's religious apologetics* label.
Go to hell troll.
Science is not Darwinism and that is what this thread is about
We can stop using the term Darwinist and Darwinism when the evos stop calling creationism a religion.
What? No answer?
