Form the Evolution News article, Whitewashing Evolution with Borrowed Paint
“Get your own dirt” is the punchline of an oft-told joke about a team of scientists dismissing God, saying they can now create a man without his help. When they reach for a handful of dirt as their starting material, God gives the punch line. The point is that materialists cannot utilize what they don’t have.
Between “God created the universe” and the “Stuff happens law”, I’m going with God.
Space does not allow analysis of all the alleged insights [by Darwinists], but a sample or two will suffice to illustrate the flawed logic. To make any assertion of what human beings “should” do, they must reach outside their own toolkit for resources only non-materialists can provide. Here are the ten insights in their list:
1. The Virus Might Alter Host Sociability
2. “Generation Quarantine” May Lack Critical Microbial Exposures
3. Activating Disgust Can Help Combat Disease Spread
4. The Mating Landscape Is Changing, and There Will Be Economic Consequences from a Decrease in Birth Rates
5. Gender Norms Are Backsliding, and Gender Inequality Is Increasing
6. An Increase in Empathy and Compassion Is Not Guaranteed
7. We Have Not Evolved to Seek the Truth.
8. Combating the Pandemic Requires Its Own Evolutionary Process
9. Cultural Evolutionary Forces Impact COVID-19 Severity
10. Human Progress Continues
Wait! So, in Insight #7 they admit they have not evolved to seek the truth! That blows their credibility totally. Where did they get that value? Answer: they plagiarized it from worldviews that value truth as a moral good. Caught in the act!
There is no moral “should” in materialistic evolution.
There are people who value truth, and there are people who value power.
Know the difference.
Insight #3 is interesting, “Activating Disgust Can Help Combat Disease Spread.” They argue that the disgust response is an evolved reflex that keeps us from approaching things that will make us sick. It may be an instinctual response; perhaps it was designed for our good. But if it is an evolved response, why do we need “messaging” to activate it? That’s like holding a sign up to a ball, reminding it to roll downhill. Look at their “Scientific Agenda” for this insight:
“Compare efficacy of disgust-eliciting messaging versus non−disgust-eliciting messaging on public health behaviors, such as handwashing, wearing masks, and maintaining safe distances. Gauge public opinion on the acceptability of using disgust-eliciting messaging directed at children versus adults.”
With this advice, they have stepped out of their evolved skin and become thinking, rational beings pretending to have compassion. Those items are not found in Darwin’s toolkit. Surprising that all these recommendations came from health professionals months ago without the help of evolutionists
“Thinking, rational beings pretending to have compassion.”
That’s a keeper.
And it reminds me of a certain group of non-human minds…
“A theory which explained everything else in the whole universe but which made it impossible to believe that our thinking was valid would be utterly out of court. For that theory would itself have been reached by thinking, and if thinking is not valid that theory would, of course, be demolished. It would have destroyed its own credentials. It would be an argument which proved that no argument was sound — a proof that there are no such things as proofs.” – C. S. Lewis, Miracles
Materialism is a parasite on theism.
And a worthless parasite it is.
As materialism gains the destiny it has always desired, Christians will have to cease trying to escape the Law of God, and stop exalting the Race and the State as our true Lord and Saviour.
Then, and only then, will we be free of the rule of these blind incompetents.
