Skip to comments.Darwin's arguments against God
Posted on 03/11/2009 8:26:34 AM PDT by GodGunsGuts
Charles Darwin grew up embracing the ‘intelligent design’ thinking of his day—William Paley’s renowned argument that the design of a watch implies there must have been an intelligent watchmaker, and so design in the universe implies there must have been an intelligent Creator.1 Concerning this, Darwin wrote, ‘I do not think I hardly ever admired a book more than Paley’s “Natural Theology”.2 I could almost formerly have said it by heart.’3
Nevertheless, Darwin spent most of the rest of his life attempting to explain design in nature without the need for any purpose or a guiding intelligence...

Yes, I’m sure he had a lot of fun positing those arguments to God in person.
Thanks for the ping!
Evolution and Christianity are perfectly compatible.
What a cute little girl Annie Darwin was. It’s sad that his faith, knowledge of scripture, and relationship with God wasn’t strong enough to overcome her tragic death. Sad that countless millions have been led to Hell by his subsequent rejection of God. We forget how Satan really knows what he’s doing. This attest the importance of a local church in earnestly contending with error as soon as it occurs, before it takes on a life of it’s own and millions are damned.
So, you should say "Adaptation and Christianity are perfectly compatable", Because God in his infinite wisdom included in all the seeds oflife a wide spectrum of genes etc. that would lay dormant until needed to help his creation adapt to changing conditions.
Looks more like “Arguments against God the I Want to Attribute to Darwin”.
That is the only argument that I needed to hear to understand why Darwin created his THEORY. A lot of people don't want to believe in the possibility of hell. If you believe in heaven and hell and in God, then you have to believe that one day you will have to answer for your actions. That means that you might have to... hold on now... take RESPONSIBILITY for your actions. So instead, people create different religions and theories. Charles Taze Russel, the founder of the Jehovah's Witnesses, did the same thing. He didn't believe that a loving God could send someone to hell, so he created his own religion where hell does not exist.
Life is easier when you don't have to answer to anyone, unfortunately, that misleading thought will not save you from the certainty of hell. I'd rather believe and be wrong, then be wrong and go to hell.
Who knows what kind of salvation he may have asked for in his last moments. I leave that judgment up to God all mighty.
What Noah's ark paradigm? There isn't one that I'm aware of
Hell is mostly absent from the Mormon religion too. The pervert pedophile religion (Islam) says you only have to go to Hell for a while.
I’m glad I don’t have to take responsibility for my sins since Jesus did that for me. My sins are ugly and I deserve Hell for them.

From Darwin’s daughter: “I was present at his deathbed. Lady Hope was not present during his last illness, or any illness. I believe he never even saw her, but in any case she had no influence over him in any department of thought or belief. He never recanted any of his scientific views, either then or earlier. We think the story of his conversion was fabricated in the U.S.A. The whole story has no foundation whatever.” 
Prior to the so called ‘evil work of Darwin’ the Bible was the science book ~ the scientific paradigm and serious scientists (real Creationist scientists not these fakes) tried to place all the ‘Kinds’ on the Ark. But it broke down with new fossil discoveries and Darwin came up with a brilliant new one. For that he burns in hell forever sentenced by modern day witch burners, some on this thread. A new completely fraudulent version of Scientific Creationism cropped up that proposes nothing , explains nothing , but dooms Darwin to Hell.
Not news. Belongs in religion
