This post has been merged into Darwin’s Dyke, posts that explore the weaknesses of Darwinism.
At the first of this month, we “celebrated” the 150th anniversary of [the lie called] naturalism’s biggest hero. Nevermind that there aren’t enough fingers in the world to fill in the cracksof Darwin’s Dyke. They carefully preserve a dead theory and constantly revise it because it’s the best and only crack they have at denying God’s existence.
But God exists whether they like it or not.
When someone finally reminded me of this deplorable anniversary, I glanced at my personal library and took down my dog-eared copy of Origins. I needed a good laugh. But I could not bring myself to laugh, despite the fact that all he ever offers is speculation and the excuse that with oour present level of knowledge we couldn’t dogmatically rule him out. Thomas Jefferson’s comments to Charles Thompson  may as well have applied to Darwin: “The moment a person forms a theory, his imagination sees, in every object, only the traits which favor that theory.” We call this ostriology – putting you r head firmly in the sand of dogma and ignoring all data which challenges it. Darwin’s faith and zeal for his theory have been matched by his disciples. And now our children are indoctrinated in this metaphysical nonsense as if it were empirical truth!
I put it back on its accustomed place on the shelf, filed appropriately under science fiction next to Wells, Verne and others. I was then reminded, by this decision, that we celebrate a different anniversary in a few days: Indepence Day. At that thought, I smiled again. For independence is the foundation of the USAmerican outlook. We value individualism, patriotism and especially freedom. Our Bill of Rights outlines some of the most precious freedoms we cherish: of religion, speech, assembly, the press. All of these reflect our value of the freedom to think for ourselves.
Some of us have. I did. I became an independent thinker, not because of the academic dogma I was offered, but because I looked at it critically and made up my own mind about it. Like Mark Twain said, I have never let schooling intgerfere with my education.
So this Independence Day, celebrate your freedom to think for yourself.
To put it another way:
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! HAVE AN INDEPENDENT THOUGHT!!!
