Darwin’s Arch Collapses

So the headlines read when a massive stone bridge in the Galapagos islands named after the famous biologist broke in the middle and left two towers of solid rock jutting out of the ocean. But the recent fall of this monument was not merely the loss of a reminder of the work of the father of modern evolutionary theory. It may also be a symbol of where that theory is headed.

Anyone who has studied Charles Darwin knows that his theory of natural selection is racist. Evolution teaches the survival of the fittest—the strong survive and the weak perish. According to Darwin, all races are not equal. As species evolve, some attain a higher life form while others naturally decline and eventually die. In the end his thought is at odds with both the republican idea that all men are created equal and the communist goal to make all men the same.

Christians have pointed out the racism in Darwinism for years, but skeptics and atheists refused to listen. However, now that the cancel culture has turned the moral issue of racism into a political weapon, even the hero of anti-creationist biology is being rejected. The same anti-God progressives who sided with Darwin against us are beginning to turn against him because of his offensive view of race. Like many statues that have sheen effaced and destroyed in our land, the arch of Darwin’s teaching is starting to crumble.

This does not mean that hard core atheists are ready to give up evolution. It does show, however, that we are in an age of selfishness and hatred. Our rebellious society cares only about having their way, and they will use or turn against anyone to get it, even the champions of the academic community that nurtures their anarchy.

However, it is possible that we will see a rise in a belief in superstitions and other gods. in the course off world history atheism has never been the dominant view. A survey last year indicated that only about six percent of Americans definitely believe that there is no God. Every human being has an immaterial spirit. They may not admit this or even think about it, but it is who we are. Most people throughout the world have believed there is something more than what we see. The problem is that prideful man tries to create a god in his own image instead of accepting that he was created in God’s image. The direction of which I speak is given in specific steps in Romans 1:18-32. The people knew God but did not want Him. Philosophers taught a better way. Old distinctions like male and female were discarded. Where did all this worldly intelligence take them? To atheism? No. They turned to idolatry. Read this passage and see if we are not somewhere in the midst of it. And, remember what Paul said just before this section of Scripture: the only hope is the gospel (Rom. 1:16).
