Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands. Cults everywhere: Islam, the State, the cult of Gay and Queer, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, 'Science', Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion....a nice variety for the human-hater, amoral, anti-rationalist to choose from. It is so much fun mocking them isn't it ?
Tempus Fugit Memento Mori - Time Flies Remember Death
Evolution is about as far removed from science as Islam is from peace. This work by Ferrell, 'Evolution Handbook', is packed with scientific reasons why Evolution is dogma, philosophy and theology. It is certainly not premised on science. The molecule to molecular biologist mantra is so absurd, that only a true cult devotee would subscribe to it. A cursory scientific analysis of Darwin's dictums, and its variant expressions, renders it a nonsense.
Early in the book Ferrell summarizes the inanity of evolution quite well, “evolution could not possibly occur, even over a period of billions of years, given the complexities of DNA, protein, the cell, enzymes, and other factors.”
This is entirely correct. Not one single aspect of science can be used to justify evolution whether it is the fossil record, bio-chemistry, or DNA. Evolution is an embarrassment. The destruction of this fantasy has been widespread. Atheists embraced evolution as a 'science', much as socialists and communists worshipped Marxian dialectics as 'proof' of their ideology. It must be uncomfortable for the modern evolutionist to put himself into the same grouping as Hitler, Stalin, Mao or Pol Pot. But there it is. Ferrell states the obvious;
“Darwin and Haeckel [my note: whose fraudulent embryology is still used in schools today and is offered as support for abortion], had a strong influence on the rise of world communism (*Daniel Gasman, Scientific Origins of National Socialism: Social Darwinism in Ernst Haeckel and the German Monist League, 1971, p. xvi).”
“Marx (1818-1883) is closely linked with Darwinism. That which *Darwin did to biology, Marx with the help of others did to society. All the worst political philosophies of the 20th century emerged from the dark cave of Darwinism. Marx was thrilled when he read Origin of the Species; and he immediately wrote Darwin and asked to dedicate his own major work, Das Kapital, to him. Darwin, in his reply, thanked him but said it would be best not to do so.”
“Mein Kampf, was based on evolutionary theory (*Sir Arthur Keith, Evolution and Ethics, 1947, p. 28). The very title of the book (“My Struggle” [to survive and overcome]) was copied from a Darwinian expression. Hitler believed he was fulfilling evolutionary objectives by eliminating “undesirable individuals and inferior races” in order to produce Germany’s “Master Race” (*Larry Azar, Twentieth Century in Crisis, 1990, p. 180). (Notice that the “master race” people always select the race they are in as the best one.) “
Not only is evolution wrong, but it is dangerous. Hitler, Stalin and other Atheists were profoundly energetic supporters of evolution. So too in the main, are today's abortionists. Darwin's dogma has corrupted science, brainwashed minds, destroyed humans, killed our embryos, erased the necessity of real faith; and created a vacuum of the spirit into which saunters the malignancy of state power, including cults such as relativity, the multi-cult, and eco-fascism or warmism. Nice legacy.
But what about the 'science' ? Surely 'every scientist' and 'every science magazine' supports evolution. 'Museums' and public displays promote it. Alas public money, tax funded 'research', 'grants' for public displays and the like, do not constitute science. To get published, tenured, and become 'accepted' you have to accept the faith and theology of Darwinism, and deride Christianity. As Ferrell relates in great detail there is however, precious little of what an objective person would call science, in the cult of Darwin.
“Evolution became in a sense a scientific religion; almost all scientists have accepted it and many are prepared to bend their observations to fit in with it.”—*H. Lipson, “A Physicist Looks at Evolution,” Physics Bulletin 31 (1980), p. 138.
“in the field of evolution most explanations are not good. As a matter of fact, they hardly qualify as explanations at all; they are suggestions, hunches, pipe dreams, hardly worthy of being called hypotheses.”—*Norman Macbeth, Darwin Retried (1971), p. 147.”
“evolutionary formula for making a universe: Nothing + nothing = two elements + time = 92 natural elements + time = all physical laws and a completely structured universe of galaxies, systems, stars, planets, and moons orbiting in perfect balance and order.”
“evolutionary formula for making life: Dirt + water + time = living creatures. Evolutionists theorize that the above two formulas can enable everything about us to make itself—with the exception of man-made things, such as automobiles or buildings.”
Evolution offends scientific laws:
“First Law of Thermodynamics (1847). Heinrich von Helmholtz stated the law of conservation of energy: The sum total of all matter will always remain the same. This law refutes several aspects of evolutionary theory. *Isaac Asimov calls it “the most fundamental generalization about the universe that scientists have ever been able to make” (*Isaac Asimov, “In the Game of Energy and Thermodynamics You Can’t Even Break Even,” Journal of Smithsonian Institute, June 1970, p. 6).”
“Second Law of Thermodynamics (1850). R.J.E. Clausius stated the law of entropy: All systems will tend toward the most mathematically probable state, and eventually become totally random and disorganized (*Harold Blum, Time’s Arrow and Evolution, 1968, p. 201). In other words, everything runs down, wears out, and goes to pieces (*R.R. Kindsay, “Physics: to What Extent is it Deterministic,” American Scientist 56, 1968, p. 100). This law totally eliminates the basic evolutionary theory that simple evolves into complex. *Einstein said the two laws were the most enduring laws he knew of (*Jeremy Rifkin, Entropy: A New World View, 1980, p. 6).”
Life from dead matter you say?
“spontaneous generation discredited [by Pasteur], biologists were left with no theory of the origin of life at all” (*J. Edison Adams, Plants: An Introduction to Modern Biology, 1967, p. 585). “
What happened to Mendel?
“Mendel’s work laid the basis for modern genetics; and his discoveries effectively destroyed the basis for species evolution (*Michael Pitman, Adam and Evolution, 1984, pp. 63-64).”
“genetic research has repeatedly confirmed that there are only changes within species—never cross-species changes (which would be true evolution). This is true of plants, animals, and even microbes.”
Evolution still uses the discredited and unscientific Lamarck, though they deny it:
“Lamarckism continues today as the disguised basis of evolutionary biology. For example, evolutionists still teach that giraffes kept stretching their necks to reach higher branches, so their necks became longer! In a later book, *Darwin abandoned natural selection as unworkable, and returned to Lamarckism as the cause of the never-observed change from one species to another (*Randall Hedtke, The Secret of the Sixth Edition, 1984).”
Natural selection of what from what ?
“(Descent of Man, 1871), Darwin ultimately abandoned “natural selection” as a hopeless mechanism and returned to Lamarckism. Even Darwin recognized the theory was falling to pieces. The supporting evidence just was not there.”
“Calling it pangenesis, Darwin said that an organ affected by the environment would respond by giving off particles that he called gemmules. These particles supposedly helped determine hereditary characteristics. The environment would affect an organ; gemmules would drop out of the organ; and the gemmules would travel to the reproductive organs, where they would affect the cells (*W. Stansfield, Science of Evolution, 1977, p. 38).
Deconstructing evolution is easy. Just use science. Supporting it is very difficult. Just insert fantasy and tax money, where science and empiricism should exist.
Ferrell sums up the issues with Darwin, “As mentioned earlier, scientists today are ashamed of Darwin’s ideas. In his book, Darwin taught that man came from an ape, and that the stronger races would, within a century or two, destroy the weaker ones. (Modern evolutionists claim that man and ape descended from a common ancestor.)”
According to evolution man and ape diverged 6 million years ago. The 'mutations' needed to create a man from an ape are massive. Contrary to propaganda the ape and the man have quite different structures, emanating from DNA, to their organs. They are not similar – homology does not make species related [another evolutionary lie]. Speech, a meta-conscious and a different skeleton, just by themselves, pose an insuperable obstacle to the man-from-ape theory. But as with all cults, science and reality are replaced by lies and compulsion.
