"I had motive for not wanting the world to have a meaning; consequently assumed that it had none, and was able without any difficulty to find satisfying reasons for this assumption. The philosopher who finds no meaning in the world is not concerned exclusively with a problem in pure metaphysics, he is also concerned to prove that there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do, or why his friends should not seize political power and govern in the way that they find most advantageous to themselves. … For myself, the philosophy of meaninglessness was essentially an instrument of liberation, sexual and political."
Aldous Huxley, wrote Brave New World (1932)
"I know of no finding in archaeology that’s properly confirmed which is in opposition to the Scriptures. The Bible is the most accurate history textbook the world has ever seen."
Dr Clifford Wilson, formerly director of the Australian Institute of Archaeology
"‘Biologists would clearly like to know how modern apes, modern humans and the various ancestral hominids have evolved from a common ancestor. Unfortunately, the fossil record is somewhat incomplete as far as the hominids are concerned, and it is all but blank for the apes. The best we can hope for is that more fossils will be found over the next few years which will fill the present gaps in the evidence.’ The author goes on to say: ‘David Pilbeam [a well-known expert in human evolution] comments wryly, “If you brought in a smart scientist from another discipline and showed him the meagre evidence we’ve got, he'd surely say, ‘forget it: there isn’t enough to go on’.”
(Richard E. Leakey, The Making of Mankind, Michael Joseph Limited, London, 1981, p. 43)
"Humanism: An outlook that places man and his concerns at the centre of interest. Modern Humanism, which does away with traditional Christianity, is characterised by its faith in the power of human beings to create their own future, collectively and personally."
In other words, evolution = religion. That is, people (not God) set whatever rules they want. In practice, this usually becomes ‘might makes right’, including the tyranny of the majority.
Creation Ex Nihilo 22(4):23, Sepember–November 2000
‘I myself am convinced that the theory of evolution, especially the extent to which it’s been applied, will be one of the great jokes in the history books of the future. Posterity will marvel that so very flimsy and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity that it has.’
Malcolm Muggeridge, well-known British journalist and philosopher—Pascal Lectures, University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
I am just pointing out the facts. Evolution is a theory in trouble. It is dominated by atheists which validate each others claim based on their biases and not the facts. My point here is that there are many people who are experts in their fields who do not believe or have doubts about the theory of evolution. If you really look at the absurdity of evolution, you will have to come away from it troubled.
‘Evolution is promoted by its practitioners as more than mere science. Evolution is promulgated as an ideology, a secular religion—a full-fledged alternative to Christianity, with meaning and morality. I am an ardent evolutionist and an ex-Christian, but I must admit that in this one complaint—and Mr [sic] Gish is but one of many to make it—the literalists are absolutely right. Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today.
‘… Evolution therefore came into being as a kind of secular ideology, an explicit substitute for Christianity.’
Michael Ruse was professor of philosophy and zoology at the University of Guelph, Canada (recently moved to Florida), He was the leading anti-creationist philosopher whose (flawed) arguments seemed to convince the biased judge to rule against the Arkansas ‘balanced treatment’ (of creation and evolution in schools) bill in 1981/2. At the trial, he and the other the anti-creationists loftily dismissed the claim that evolution was an anti-god religion.
‘Let me summarize my views on what modern evolutionary biology tells us loud and clear … There are no gods, no purposes, no goal-directed forces of any kind. There is no life after death. When I die, I am absolutely certain that I am going to be dead. That’s the end for me. There is no ultimate foundation for ethics, no ultimate meaning to life, and no free will for humans, either.’
Provine, W.B., Origins Research 16(1), p.9, 1994.
If you don't like what evolution teaches, you might want to consider looking at other possibilities. I realize that some of you think I am crazy for not believing in evolution. You might think that I don't know what I am talking about. That is why I am creating this post so you are aware that I am not the only one that doesn't believe in this theory. Like I said before, creationist are religious, and so are the people who believe in evolution. I am not saying that science is religion. There is some serious valid sciences that isn't religious. However, the so called science concerning origin of life or the universe is a religious concept if it involves God or no God. It takes a lot of faith to believe in the Big Bang and that makes you just as religious as a Creationist. So don't fool yourself if you are an atheist thinking that your scientific views should dominate over the theory of Creationism. Creationism can develop theories just like evolutionist. Our theories involve a Creator because we know that complexity requires intelligence.
