Demonizing Darwin
Here is my brother's latest post about the demonization of Charles Darwin. Keep in mind, his posts are directed mainly towards Christians.

That was clearly written and at a level that most people should be able to understand. Thumbsup

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

RE: Demonizing Darwin
What an excellent closing paragraph:

Quote:My hope is that this post will help curb some of the misinformation that is out there. As Christians, our job is to seek the truth and promote that which is right. By continuing to promote out right lies about Charles Darwin goes against our calling. But I get it. I get why people want to wrongly demonize him. I know how fundamentalism works- if you can slander the character of someone, or link them to some unsavory event, then everything they say can be dismissed. I've seen this method time and time again in churches, and not just with Darwin, but with anyone, Christian or not, who holds a different view on things than what is accepted by that particular congregation. I am not saying that you have to agree with Darwin's claims, or agree with the modern theory of evolution. What I am saying is that to continue to promote falsehood to slant an argument in your favor is deceptive. If one is going to argue for or against the theory of evolution, let it be on the grounds of historical accuracy and science, not on misinformation and false claims. To do so only continues to set this conversation back, and impedes us in making progress in the debate. Please, brothers and sisters, let's be discerning in what we read and hear. Let's actually research things. Let's be honest and genuine, even if the facts challenge our own viewpoint.


That is an outstanding article/post. Please pass my congratulations to your brother for such writing.

I'm sorry I missed seeing ya while I was in Louisiana, for the past couple of weeks, KC!

That was an excellent article, especially coming from a preacher man. Thumbsup

Only found 1 typo.

"Rather, he basis his racism and genocide on ancient .."

RE: Demonizing Darwin
Please stop your brother's attempts to re-educate the ignorant masses.

Also, on no occasion suggest that his (and your) time would be better spent trying to repeal the YEC ruling.

SE Asian economic growth would be much hampered if the Murikan hoi polloi actually started knowing stuff.

Thank you very much.

"...evolution is not equipped to make metaphysical of sociological claims."

I'd also argue that "atheistic" is not really accurate in "Social Darwinism is a wrong headed, atheistic INTERPRETATION of the science of evolution."

For an article by and for theists it is great. If more theists thought that way there would be a lot less need for vocal atheism.

RE: Demonizing Darwin
Heh, I just realized... correcting minor typos aside, we all just high-fived a post by a Christian, written by Christians for Christians, and posted to an atheism site.

Could it BE that that the accusation of certain theist trolls here, that we all hate all Christians, is inaccurate?!?!

Very well written. I enjoyed the read

Remember, just because you want something to be true, doesn't make it true. Yes, even if you have faith.
