Can America Survive Evolutionary Humanism?

Jury duty this morning...isn't that special? But I did find a great article that all should read!

Linda Kimball asks: Can America Survive Evolutionary Humanism?

Linda writes:

Next, materialist epistemology and metaphysics dispossesses man of soul, free will, conscience, mind, and reason, thereby dehumanizing (animalizing) man and totally destroying not only the worth, dignity, and meaning of human life, but the possibility of freedom. The essence of this annihilation is captured in the following quotes:

Man is “but fish made over…” declared biologist William Etkin (Pushing the Antithesis, Greg L. Bahnsen, p. 224). And his life is but a “partial, continuous, progressive, multiform and continually interactive, self-realization of the potentialities of atomic electron states,” explained J.D. Bernal (1901-1971), past Professor of Physics at the

University of
London (The Origin of Life, Bernal, 1967, xv). Furthermore, “The universe cares nothing for us,” trumpets William Provine, Cornell University Professor of Biology, “and we have no ultimate meaning in life.” (Scientists, Face It! Science and Religion are Incompatible,” The Scientist, Sept. 1988)

Man... “must be degraded from a spiritual being to an animalistic pattern. He must think of himself as an animal, capable of only animalistic reactions. He must no longer think of himself…as capable of ‘spiritual endurance,’ or nobility.” By animalizing man his “state of mind…can be ordered and enslaved.” (Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics, “Degradation and Shock,” Chapter viii)

Finally, Evolutionary Humanism posits the notion that despite the fact that man is “but fish made over…” there are in fact, some exceptions to this rule. For it happens---by chance of course---that some lucky ‘species’ and ‘races’ of the human animal are more highly evolved (superior) and therefore enlightened than the others, who are---unluckily for them---less evolved and as a consequence, subhuman. Paired to this view is the idea that if a species or race does not continue to evolve (progress up the evolutionary ladder), it will become extinct. Together, these ideas lead logically to the deadly conclusion that in order to preserve the fittest of the species---or the spiritually evolved, as is the case with Spiritual Communism--- it is morally incumbent upon the superior to replace (via the science of eugenics and population control) and/or liquidate the subhumans. In his book, “The Descent of Man and Selection in Relation to Sex,” (1871) Charles Darwin foresaw this eventuality:

“At some future period…the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace, the savage races throughout the world…the anthropomorphous apes…will no doubt be exterminated.” (Descent, 2nd ed., p. 183)

In practice, the materialist worldview is a hellish recipe for catastrophe, as was amply demonstrated by the 20th century’s two most blood-soaked political movements--- pagan Nazism and atheist Communism. Both rejected God, and both were animated by Darwinism

Linda Kimball's concluding points certainly paints an exact picture of what is going wrong in America today:

"America, the “moral force that defeated communism” is on the verge of completely rejecting God, the natural order, and moral absolutes and instead, embracing the godless religion of evolution, amorality, and the unnatural.

Evolutionary Humanism is the most dangerous delusion thus far in history. It begins with the ‘animalization of Other,’ in tandem with the elevation of the ‘superior,’ for whom this serves as a license to make up their own rules, abuse power, and force their will onto the citizens. This is accompanied by a downward spiraling process that pathologizes the natural order, moral ethics, virtue, and social taboos while simultaneously elevating narcissism, tyranny, cruelty, nihilism, confusion, perversion, sadism, theft, and lying to positions of politically correct “new morality,” which is then enforced through sensitivity training, speech codes, hate crime laws, and other intimidation tactics. If not stopped, as history warns us, this rapidly escalating downward process leads inevitably to totalitarianism, enslavement, and eventually mass murder."

In a portent of things to come, evolutionist B.F. Skinner said:

“A scientific analysis of behavior dispossesses autonomous man and turns the control he has been said to exert over to the environment. The individual…is henceforth to be controlled…in large part by other men.” (Understanding the Times, David Noebel, p. 232)

C, your blog remains one of the more entertaining reads. You live in a very interesting parallel world.

Christinewjc said...

I'm glad that you at least find it entertaining.

But there is much more to consider here.

If you have "shut off your mind" from God's Word (or, don't know it in the first place) then such an attitude as yours is quite predictable. In fact, Scripture has already prophesied your reaction here centuries ago:

Cr 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

1Cr 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

1Cr 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

1Cr 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

1Cr 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.

1Cr 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

Coming form a 'man' who longs to be a woman at heart and touch, using such comparisons is.... well, just pricless. :) Thanks jody, you always make me smile big guy.

God still loves you!

Jody said...

Christine, those aren't prophecies. Those are bromides.

Coming form a 'man' who longs to be a woman at heart and touch...

Not that there's anything wrong with women, but where in the world Mark did you get the idea that I wanted to be one?

God still loves you!

So does the IRS. I take no solace from either.

jody, if you think Biblical truths equals a cliche', then what may I ask is your source for nonesense?
...besides your personal opinion. we all have one of those. And a smart boy like yourself would not persue a higher 'education' if such were true, no?

where in the world Mark did you get the idea that I wanted to be one?

I didn't say you wanted to be a woman. I said you desire what a woman does at heart and touch. There is a difference. no? If not, how do you know?

So does the IRS. I take no solace from either.

Your mistake in judgement jody. God has so much more to offer than the IRS can ever take away from you.

What do you take 'solace' in? Will your answer be the same today, as it is the day you die? Do you not feel the fingerprint of God on your heart? Is your conscience so hardend and dead towards your maker, it can be explained away by chance?

Not that there's anything wrong with women

lol, you have never met my wife!

Jody said...

Biblical truths equals a cliche'...

Quoting vague verse in an attempt to make a point? Yes, cliche. Assigning prophetic value to such vagueness? Asinine. Thinking you are learned through the memorization of such vagueness? Well, that's priceless.

I didn't say you wanted to be a woman. I said you desire what a woman does at heart and touch. ...

Oh the Spin! I'm getting whiplash....

lol, you have never met my wife!

That sounds like a personal problem, Mark.
