Charles Manson Was an Evolutionist

Few Darwinians would condone murder, of course, but the Manson case shows what can happen to someone who puts their faith in the teachings of Darwin and his disciples.

Well, after 45 years in prison for the heinous murders he instigated, Charles Manson has finally met his Maker. Many in the public have held a kind of horrified fascination for the cult hero whose “Manson family” shocked the world in 1969 with some of the bloodiest, cruelist, most senseless murders known up to that time. How many who have followed the case, though, realize that the motivations for his murderous rampage included the teachings of Nietzsche, a fervent disciple of Darwin? Even conservative news reports often overlook that point (example on WND). Jerry Bergman (a CEH contributor) connects the dots in his book, How Darwinism Corrupts Morality.

From the article:

“Like Nietzsche, Manson was an ardent racist who hated blacks. In the days of the 1960s race riots, he sought to foment an apocalyptic race war which he called “Helter Skelter” (the words his ‘family’ agents wrote on the walls with their victims’ blood, based on a Beatles song of that name).

Dr Bergman tells in chapter 8 how Manson hoped to precipitate the race war by blaming the murders on the Black Panthers, so that society would be in an uproar and subjugate the blacks. And why did he imbibe these racist views?

According to prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi, Manson believed in Darwin’s writings (“it is a matter of evolution”) and in Nietzsche’s tenets that “women are inferior to men, the white race is superior to all other races; it is not wrong to kill if the end is right.”

Manson felt that the black race was not as evolved as the white race; he believed they do “not have the mental capacity to govern properly,” one biographer said.

Manson also admired Hitler, considering him “a tuned in guy” according to one witness.”

Darwinism is a theory of biological evolution developed by the English naturalist Charles Darwin (1809–1882) and others, stating that all species of organisms arise and develop through the natural selection of small, inherited variations that increase the individual’s ability to compete, survive, and reproduce. A key to the theory is natural selection.

You are introducing breeding which can be contrasted with natural selection.

In fairness to Charles Darwin, Karl Marx wanted to dedicate "Das Kapital" to him, but Darwin rejected the...honor.

What Charles Manson was is irrelevant. What he IS...is worm food. That is all that matters.

I think this post is trying to say that because Charles Manson was a bad person, and he was an evolutionist, that, therefore, evolution is wrong.

Which is a logical fallacy. Hitler was a the-sun-is-going-to-rise-tommorowist, which doesn’t mean the sun won’t rise tomorrow, or that being a the-sun-is-going-to-rise-tommorowist is a wrong belief.

I could use fewer posts like this.

Stupid; also asinine. That statement could be turned around so easily.

We care because worldview determines our actions.

Our skools are forcing the religion of Darwinism and Satanism on our children as I type-—so Good is Evil, Boys are Girls and Up is Down.

It matters how and what our children “think”-—and psy-ops are being used on our children to destroy virtue formation intentionally. You should care-—your tax money is paying to corrupt and destroy the ability of our children to “think” coherently because they are given lies and a Marxist lens on everything (God is Dead—as is The Age of Reason—Modern Science and Classical Education) to create dumb, ignorant, irrational, non thinkers just like Manson. Emotions ruled Manson—the fatherless little boy which a teenage whore of a mother who sold her son for drugs when two who was probably raped and brutalized his entire childhood.

Darwin disciples get frustrated when they realize that the principles aren't working or won't work for millions of years.

Some of these historical figures definitely had some mental problems; I would say deeply rooted in control freak problem. They often decide the best way to hurry their philosophy along by killing off everyone that doesn't believe in it or fit into it.

Certainly Hitler, Mao and Stalin were great examples. I did not know about the Columbine killer with "natural selection" shirt but it fits (no pun intended.) They also had a lot of demon drawings and were obsessed with the Doom video game.

Really? Ever heard of Margaret Sanger? Adolph Hitler? Planned Parenthood?

The religion of evolution goes to a lot of bad places.
