Why Do Some People So Strongly Support Evolution? - #10

The following quote is from Charles Singer, from his book "A Short History Of Science In The Nineteenth Century:

"Evolution is perhaps unique among major scientific theories in that the appeal for its acceptance is not that there is evidence of it, but that any other proposed interpretation of the data is wholly incredible."

Those who hold to evolution and those who understand creation to be true both have the same evidence. We all have the same fossils, the same layers of sediment, the same data. Both sides believe in science as a tool for revealing reality. The difference comes in the underlying world views that each side has. A world view can cause people to totally ignore reality when reality does not match the way they think the world should be. Here is where we get to the problem. Evolutionists need evolution to be true, because otherwise the only other option is that God created everything. That is unacceptable, because if God created everything they are accountable to God. And they don't want to be accountable to God.

Ardipithecus ramidus - The New Myth Of Science

For the past month the "big news" in science has been Ardipithecus ramidus, the latest fossil find in mankind's evolutionary background. Evolutionists are a-glow with satisfaction! There's "more" "hard" evidence that proves evolution is true.

But what did they actually find 15 years ago?

A lot of crushed bones. How do you put a crushed skull together the right way when you don't know how the originally looked? You take a guess at what you think is the right way, put the skull together, then compare it with what you want the skull to look like. When the skull looks like an early hominin, you declare that it is now correct. In this case it only took ten attempts to get the skull looking they way they wanted it to look.

What's next? Declare that the skull looks like any early hominin and announce you've discovered one of the earliest hominins and the "find of the century."

By the way, don't assume a complete skull was assembled from the collection of crushed bone. What they have is a partial skull assembled from fragments.

The pelvis helps determine whether the original creature walked upright or like a monkey. In this case it took 15 tries to get the pelvis looking like it walked upright. Then, of course, you announce that the scientific evidence shows it walked upright.

What kind of science is this?

By the way, another announcement this week took revealed that Archaeopteryx, a supposed early link between dinosaurs and birds, has been determined to be fully a... dinosaur. A scientific, microscopic examination showed that this long heralded fossil is not a link between birds and dinosaurs.

The belief that evolution is true depends on ignorance. They are counting on you not knowing the facts. Trust the one book that has never changed, and has never been shown to be false -- even after thousands of years of efforts to do so. Trust the word of an eye-witness. Trust the word of the one who was there when everything was created. Trust God's word.

Truth, Lies and Propaganda

A good web site to know well is:

Propaganda techniques are one of the major weapons used against Christianity and the truth.

Barney Frank referred to Justice Scalia as a 'homophobe' in interview (AP). What he is doing is using a common propaganda technique known as name calling. It sounds like something little kids do on the playground, and it is. But when it is used by a U.S. Representative, whom we assume has some maturity and intelligence, then it is a straight forward use of propaganda.

Propaganda has been a key weapon commonly used by the dictators, fascists, communists and the liberal left*. The liberal left has used it politically, culturally and theologically. It is an easy weapon to use when you don't care about truth, or care about other people, but care only about achieving your objectives. What's great about this weapon is that you can assert something that is known to be false (based on the facts), but facts are not important. If you repeat your propaganda enough times it will be believed.

This is how evolution and Darwism has come to dominate and be the only allowed viewpoint. Not through the power of scientific facts... there are none. But through the power of continual and repeated assertion, as well as the use of other propaganda techniques. (Such as bandwangon, fear and bad logic.) This is how moral corruption has been creeping into our culture for the past 50 years. This is how theological corruption has destroyed many of our good churches.

Propaganda techniques. Learn about them. Recognize them when they are being used against you.

*I've used an example of "name calling" here.

Cultural Version of Aids

I find this quote from columnist Joseph Sobran to be very interesting:

"It's a sort of cultural version of AIDS: the whole immune system of the West has broken down. It has no convictions, no comprehension of hostile alien cultures, no resistance to assault on its traditrion. Some would say fatally conflicted. It should come as no surprise that the twofold law of our land is that 'everybody knows it is wrong but no one can say it is wrong.' The country seems to have lost its spiritual moorings--its very foundations within the context of Judeo-Christian code. Pope John Paul II has called it a 'Culture Of Death.'"
