When one accepts evolution, moral and intellectual adjustments must be made, and the fact is, evolution has been accepted in the public school system and a large majority of the scientific community. They have combined it with a humanistic philosophy and have a “Non-theistic Religion.”
Professor Sedgwick (one of Darwin’s teachers) said, “if Darwinism did what he thought it could do, humanity, in my mind, would suffer a damage that might brutalize it, and sink the human race into a lower grade of degradation than any into which it has fallen.” Following are four fruits of evolution.
- It has the philosophy that the strong are to subjugate the weak. Dr. Henry Morris points out “Evolution is at the foundation of Communism, Fascism, Freudianism, and Atheism.” A doctrine is know for its fruits.
- Evolution is built on the assumption that man is not more than a fighting animal. Morals and values are not included in evolution’s scheme of things. If evolution is true, there is no valid reason to not do whatever you want to do. Being a Godless system, it is a system without morality. Evolution will not oppose the weak being sterilized, mercy killing, millions of abortions a year, or the failure of one out of every two marriages ending in divorce. There is nothing in the system to protest, and if a person or a race is physically bettered by some act, then do it!
- Evolution leads to racism. Advocates like Haeckel and Thomas Huxley have been led by evolution to their superior-race theories. Some claim the black race is inferior, and others have claimed it is a link between apes and the Teuton race. We feel the notion of atheistic evolution lead to such nonsense.
- Evolution teaches that nothing is supernatural,much less the supernatural being involved in things. One evolutionist, Dr. George Gaylord Simpson, said, “Man stands alone in the universe, a unique product of a long, unconscious, impersonal, material process with unique understanding. These he owes to no one but himself, and it is to himself alone that he is responsible.” So, under evolution the earth evolved; it was not created. Moral irresponsibility follows. One must do away with parts or all of God’s Word. There is a dehumanization of the human family, and atheism follows.
I reject evolution on scientific as well as on biblical grounds. When one considers all the above, it makes him glad he is on the other side. The more supernaturalism and judgment-day accounting is removed from society the more sensuous, anti-family, and violent society becomes.
