EVOLUTION IS A RELIGION
Dr. Fred Miller
Evolution is a religion, i.e., a system of faith in the doctrine of materialism for the atheists and humanists. There is no evidence anywhere in the world to support evolution as a science. To understand evolution as a religion one needs to simply read the comments of those who believe it.
Charles Darwin stated in his autobiography that the Bible “was no more to be trusted than the sacred books of the Hindoos or the beliefs of any barbarian.” (pp. 85, 87)
Charles Darwin, “I was a young man with unformed ideas. I threw out queries, suggestions, wondering all the time over everything and to my astonishment the ideas took like wildfire. People made a religion of them.” (William Federer, America’s God and Country, 1996,
Thomas Huxley said: “Evolution if consistently accepted, makes it impossible to believe the Bible.” (Samuel G Dawson, and Rod MacArthur, Handbook of Religious Quotations (HRQ), p.63.)
In 1893 Thomas Huxley wrote, “… history records that whenever science and orthodoxy have been fairly opposed, the latter has been forced to retire from the lists, bleeding and crushed if not annihilated; scotched, if not slain.”
Charles Lyell, the father of geological uniformitarianism which is the bedrock of evolution, hated the literal interpretation of the book of Genesis and hoped to use his uniformitarianism principle to drive men “out of the Mosaic record. (Charles Lyell, Life, Letters and Journals of Sir Charles Lyell, 1, pp. 253,
Aldous Huxley stated; “I had motives for not wanting the world to have meaning… The liberation we desired was from a certain system of morality. We objected to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom.” (. Aldous Huxley Ends and Means, 1946, p.70.)
Julian Huxley stated; “The sense of spiritual relief which comes from rejecting the idea of God as a superhuman being is enormous.” (Julian Huxley, [grandson of Thomas Huxley] Essay of a Humanist, 1966, p.223)
Julian Huxley stated: “
Dr. Michael Ross was one on
the main witnesses for the evolutionists in the 1981 federal court
Scott Todd stated; “Even if all the data point to an intelligent designer, such an hypothesis is excluded from science because it is not naturalistic.” (Scott Todd, immunologist at Kansas State University, correspondence to Nature, Sept. 30, 1999, www.answersingenesis.prg/todd)
Kenneth Miller who is a
strong supporter of evolution and has appeared in courts defending the
that evolution alone should be taught in schools and creation or
design should not be allowed. He also fought against the idea of the
being inserted in textbooks suggesting evolution should be approached
open mind. Miller is the author of one of the most common biology
used in our high schools today. He also wrote “Finding Darwin’s God”.
concluded that book with the statement; “What kind of God do I believe
answer is in those words. I believe in
There are numerous other quotes from many different people that support the belief that evolution is a religion. As we stated at the beginning of this article there is absolutely no proof of evolution. The evolutionists try to use simple genetics, which they renamed microevolution to support their beliefs. However, microèvolution is limited to the changes in the species and not changes of new genera or species.
If you go back to the promoters of evolution, Thomas Huxley and Charles Lyell it becomes clear that the concept of evolution was an ideal tool for them to use against Christianity and the Bible which they and most of the other early promoters hated. It was Huxley who believed and pushed the teaching of evolution in the public schools. That idea makes sense when one remembers that Adolf Hitler stated; “Let me control the textbooks and I will control the state.” This idea of using the textbooks is further confirmed by John J.Dunphy, who stated; “The battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as proselytizers of a new faith... (that will replace) the rotting corpse of Christianity.” (John J. Dunphy, The Humanists, Jan. 1983, p.26.)
As Christians we need to realize that we are at war and need to put on the suit or armor given us in Ephesians 6 and stand fast against our enemy. There is no place for us to compromise and accept evolution as a science or the idea of theistic evolution. We must remember that with the so-called theistic evolution
that there was death before Adam. Therefore the wages of sin cannot be death and then Jesus did not have to come to pay for our sins. We need for the protection of our children and country to take a stand and have creation be allowed to be taught in public schools as evolution is taught. Reports tell us that 65 to 85percent of our youth stop going to church when they go to college, and many stop even while in high school.
We must remember they are being taught that the Bible is wrong and God did not create the world or us.
The United States Constitution’s First Amendment reads: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble,, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Thus we have not only the right, but the duty to protect our religious beliefs and what is being taught to our children. Somehow we need to get back into the courts and have them change and either allow creation to be taught in our public schools or not allow either evolution or creation to be taught.
