Darwins bulldogThomas H. Huxley
Huxley, although an unbeliever, was thoroughly familiar with the gospel, and had little time for Christians who compromised their position by supporting the anti-biblical belief of evolutionary naturalism. He wrote: ...

(sorry. this is always an energetic topic. fun to watch)
When you post such useless excerpts, why don’t you provide a summary of the article or the point you’re trying to make?
I think it is somewhat obvious what the article is about, even from the standpoint of a short excerpt.
A non-believer is of the opinion that ‘Christians’ should hold to what their Holy Bible says. Evolution, as a theory of life genesis and diversity, is a non-starter.
Genesis is the cornerstone, the first book of the Bible, and as such is under attack by those that would love to discredit the entire Bible. The Bible is the Word of God, and God does not lie.
Those who profess to believe in Jesus and God, but who dismiss what the Bible says need to re-examine their faith. You are playing into the hands of liberals as well as the prince of this world. The Bible is to be accepted in its entirety, not cherry-picked for thos things you agree with or don’t cause ‘conviction’ in your heart.
How on earth could you call the excerpt useless? It tells you exactly what you are about to read!
Thanks for sharing :o)
Do you believe you can drink deadly poison and live as the Bible states?
Why couldn't you tack it onto one of the thousand threads you've already done about Darwin?
The basis of atheism isn’t “great scientific knowledge” or “an understanding of evolution”... It’s hatred of being judged. The atheist hates the judge and despises the righteousness of Christianity.
And that goes for everything else too. Basically, and I mean no offense to my atheist buddies, atheism is a cop out. And, by default, atheists are quitters.
Not all, though. Many atheists are actually reprehensible criminals, caught and uncaught. Some are like the people who abduct then rape and murder teenage girls. Some are like the people who work at abortion clinics. Some are political opportunists and activists.
But, in general, atheists are empty people.
We should pity them.
Your concern is touching...LOL!
No rational man, cognizant of the facts, believes that the average Negro is the equal, still less the superior, of the white man.....it is simply incredible to think that.....he will be able to compete successfully with his bigger-brained and smaller-jawed rival, in a contest which is to be carried on by thoughts and not by bites."
(Thomas Huxley, 1871, Lay Sermons, Addresses and Reviews, Chap. ii)
Just about the most succinct if not damning statement one of Darwin's own contemporaries and acolytes could have possibly uttered. It is what Darwinism is ultimately all about -- the dehumanizing and exploitation of masses of perceived "lesser humans" by an elite. Little wonder Marx himself was so intrigued by the concept.
I beleive also as Jesus told Satan when tempted to step off the roof of a tall building, that Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
Could Jesus have stepped off that building without harm? I do believe so, but why put God to the test? What makes you think any earthly being is worthy to put his Creator to the test?
Neither would I tempt the Lord by handling a venomous snake bare handed. Though I do rather enjoy their non-venomous brothers.
Here’s a case for ya. I have an almost 8’ Yellow Anaconda. Near his tail are two spurs, that, if you were to see a bare skeleton are what could very well be vestigial legs.
Aha!! See? Evolution!!! Evidence!!!! But wait......
In Genesis, that wily serpent lied, just enough to get Eve to eat of the Fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. When she told God why she had eaten....
And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
15And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Reading that, it would appear God removed the serpents legs for his part in this original sin. Not only that, but there does indeed seem to be ‘enmity’ between the seed of the serpent and the seed of that woman.
IOW, lumpen-bibliliteralist bigotry. Ill pass.
Will you, now?
Will you also pass on Huxley's view of Catholisim too?
"In addition to the truth of the doctrine of evolution, indeed, one of its greatest merits in my eyes, is the fact that it occupies a position of complete and irreconcilable antagonism to that vigorous and consistent enemy of the highest intellectual, moral, and social life of mankind--the Catholic Church"
- T.H Huxley, Darwiniana.
SO who's the real bigot there, Od?
