If you didn’t know, February 12 is Darwin Day, and this year the international celebration falls on this Sunday, so be on the lookout for theistic Darwinists to reassure churches that Charles Darwin believed in God, or at least that his theory of evolution harmonizes beautifully with Christian theology. ~ Tom Bethell, senior editor of The American Spectator

More people than not are of the opinion that ‘Fake Science’ began with ‘Climategate,’ or more recently with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s breaching of scientific integrity in publishing a fraudulent report with the intent of providing world leaders attending the Paris 2015 UN climate conference ‘plausible’ justification for affirming Global Warming…

Piltdown Man hoax to advance Charles Darwin and his Theory of Evolution… Click to read

But ‘Fake News’ actually began when a jaw and a skull were the only remnants of Piltdown Man. For over 40 years, hundreds of ‘scientists’ regarded this as classic proof of human evolution. And that situation may have continued except for a dentist (an amateur paleontologist) who in 1953 determined that the Piltdown evidence was the combination of a human skull and the filed and stained jaw of an ape. Numerous books have been written investigating the identity of the hoaxer. More recently, Piltdown: A Scientific Forgery (1990) was an attempt by evolutionist Frank Spencer to regain credibility within the scientific community by admitting guilt and assigning blame.

However, this belated confession is no consolation for those who based their eternal destiny on ‘Fake Science’!

Darwin and his theory of natural selection has been completely skewered in Tom Wolfe’s recent book The Kingdom of Speech published in 2016 by Little, Brown & Co. (185 pp including notes).

Quoting from the blurb on the back cover: “Language in all its forms advanced man far beyond the boundaries of natural selection, allowing him to think abstractly and plan ahead (no animal was capable of it). Darwin and his doctrine of natural selection couldn’t deal with artifacts, which were by definition unnatural, or with the mother of all artifacts, which was the Word. The inexplicable power of the Word – speech, language – was driving him crazy.”

Which still doesn’t prevent the ‘Darwinista’s’ from coming out of hibernation to expose the ages-old evolutionary fairy tale to yet one more round of acceptance and credibility. Of which there is none, albeit the generational Leftist Socialist Marxists continue with their irrational potshots aimed from a comfortable atheistic distance.

As Søren Løvtrup expresses it in Darwinism: The Refutation of A Myth (Croom Helm, New York, 1987, p. 422): “I suppose that nobody will deny that it is a great misfortune if an entire branch of science becomes addicted to a false theory. But this is what has happened in biology: for a long time now people discuss evolutionary problems in a peculiar ‘Darwinian’ vocabulary, as in – ‘adaptation,’ ‘selection pressure,’ ‘natural selection,’ etc. – thereby believing that they contribute to the explanation of natural events. They do not. I believe that one day the Darwinian myth will be ranked the greatest deceit in the history of science.”

The most insidious attacks on the Bible are those that cloak themselves in biblical drivel. Either the Bible says what it means and means what it says, or it’s a collection of fictional stories. If it is truth, then anything and everything else contrary to it is a lie. That, or the Bible is a lie and we seek truth elsewhere, and if so, where do we begin? The main point is that Darwin was a fraud, but many of us who hold to Biblical truth have always known that purely on the basis that what he has stated is contrary to what the Bible claims.

As Tom Bethell puts it in his article linked at the bottom: “Darwin promoted his materialistic worldview indirectly by supporting the principle that science should invoke only material causes. According to this methodological rule, you needn’t be an atheist to do science, but you should offer only hypotheses consistent with atheism when doing science. Call it methodological atheism. As he told geologist Charles Lyell, “I would give absolutely nothing for the theory of Natural Selection, if it require miraculous additions at any one stage of descent.”

Wrote Harvard geneticist Richard Lewontin: “This methodological dogma is in full bloom today. We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs … In spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism. Moreover,” he added, “that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.”

Almost 160 years after The Origin of Species appeared, the case for intelligent design is stronger than ever. The origin of the first animal forms in the Cambrian explosion; the origin of the first microscopic life; the cellular world of sophisticated molecular machines; the origin of a finely tuned universe from nothing — each is part of a march of discovery since Darwin’s day that has taken us further and further from a world empty of final meaning, and deeper into one charged with the grandeur of some extraordinary design.

That’s something worth celebrating this Darwin Day, and every Sunday.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. ~ Genesis 1:1-5
