The Darwin Anniversary
CMI ^ | November 24, 2009 | Carl Wieland

Posted on 11/24/2009 9:27:06 AM PST by GodGunsGuts

Today, November 24, it is exactly 150 years since Charles Darwin published his On the Origin of Species.

The world has been gearing up for this “second echelon” of celebrations for this international “Year of Darwin”, following on from the 200th anniversary of his birth this last February. Atheists and humanist groups in particular have seemed to be relishing the thought of giving further prominence to the ideas of their patron saint. Their adulation is heightened by their knowledge that...

Debate on church doctrine and or threads on specific religious matters may be best posted in the religion forum, but the defense of religious freedom, especially against those who wish to deprive us of same belongs front and center on FR.

They banned God and prayer and creationism from public schools and public places, but I’ll be damned if they’re gonna ban Him or it from FR!

Show me what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as the command to spread by the sword the faith he preached. — Manuel II Paleologus

I think the name Muhammed could easily be replaced by Darwin and faith with atheism

Let’s hear it for rational discourse governed by consistent processes of inquiry based on observable phenomena and repeatable experiments. Ahh the free market place of theories where ideas stand or fall on their accumulated merits and facts not on the emotional attachment to unprovable beliefs.

LOL.
Darwin did no such thing.

1. He was a naturalist aboard the ship. Nothing more.
2. Captain Robert Fitzroy was responsible for any slaves brought on board during the ship’s “second voyage”.
3. Darwin objected to slavery and was rebuked by Fitzroy and the rest of the ship’s compliment.

But, hey, it makes a good story, so go with it.

Charles Darwin (with beard) looks very much like Karl Marx. This proves that evolutionary biology is a Leftist scam.

"You said it, not me :o)"

Indeed. Because of the coming Thanksgiving I am in a generous mood. So I am not only going to concede that Darwin looks like Marks, and this disproves evolution. I am also going to concede that all the other things, consistent with evolutionism, are disproved as well. All these scientists studying nuclear physics (relevant to evolutionism because of radioisotope dating) were leftists. Geologists were leftists. Mathematicians were leftists, and so on. There is no evolution, the Earth is flat and the firmament revolves around it. Have a nice day. :)

No problem.
You made the unfortunate mistake of using a common YEC slander against Darwin. A few of them really know no limits.

....and yet, here I sit in the academic and liberal center of America.....and I see no atheists or humanists in the streets promoting anything.

Their adulation is heightened by their knowledge that......evolution (in the sense of molecules to man) directly undermines the core of the Christian gospel.

....and I'd say that most atheists/evolutionsists simply do not give a rat's tuckus what is in the Christian gospel. Never not once in all of my 9 years of higher education did I EVER.....not once....hear ONE THING about the Bible in ANY of my science classes...too busy learning sciencey stuff. You can trot out a few rabble-rousers that have their personal vendetta...the rest of us....the other 99.974%...simple do not care.

OOoooooo....a bunch of nonsense articles tying the belief in evolution to every known atrocity in the world......sooper tactic.

the massive damage to faith that the evolutionary belief system causes

Waaaaaaaaahhhhh...."my faith that Man lived with 100+ species of large carnivorous dinosaurs is so freakin' weak that a scientific theory damages it".....call the waaaaaahmbulance!!!

wait, saying he brought slaves to the states is a common slander?

And here I thought I was witty for calling a man who loathed slavery a slaver.

Yep.
There's no end to the machinations of some YEC minds.

Some are just believers and are intellectually honest enough to approach the subject head-on.
Others, not so much.

Hence the confusion.

It proves he needed, like KM, to see a decent barber.

“This proves that evolutionary biology is a Leftist scam.”

Self delusion is a more accurate term.

I don’t recall any creationist sources saying Darwin was a slaver. But they do say that he was anti-slavery —and— a racist. Now, I’m about to go sailing, but if either of you doubt that Darwin was anti-slavery —and— a racist, I would be glad to supply plenty of links documenting the same upon my return.

All the best—GGG

"You went too far when you said the Earth is flat."

No way. I know that the Leftist propaganda machine claims that the Earth is a sphere (and they also want us to believe in these 'satellites', 'astronauts' and so on), but here is the proof:

Daniel 4:10-11 The visions of my head as I lay in bed were these: I saw, and behold, a tree in the midst of the earth; and its height was great. The tree grew and became strong, and its top reached to heaven, and it was visible to the end of the whole earth.

Matthew 4:8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them.

Jeremiah 51:16 When he utters his voice there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, and he makes the mist rise from the ends of the earth.

LOL, silly leftists. How can a sphere have ends? Let them celebrate their false 'saints', Darwin, Copernicus and so on. We know better.

Your buddy Kirk Cameron is getting totally destroyed by a bunch of evo’s in this thread.

Here is your chance to go and save him and send those evo’s away crying with your superior debating skills, and that mountain of evidence you clam destroys the temple of Darwin.

I for one would like to see you show your stuff outside of this echo-chamber supported by the mods and surrounded by your cheerleaders.

You talk the talk, well now GGG it is time to walk the walk, unless as I predict you are all hat and no cattle.
