Darwin's evolutionary disciples silent
By Bonnie Alba

Recently I posed two questions to my husband, a retired middle-school science teacher:

1) What scientist and field of science relies on and solely depends on Darwin's theory of evolution for any advances in human progress?

2) What advances in modern medicine, technology and products were derived solely from relying on Darwin's theory of evolution?

There was Silence. He had to think about it.

Colin Patterson, respected paleontologist at London's Natural History Museum, once asked the following question: Can anyone tell me, "anything you know about evolution, any one thing, any one thing that you think is true?" From the geology staff at the Field Museum of Natural History, their response: Silence. When he asked the same question of members attending an Evolutionary Morphology Seminar, University of Chicago: Silence.

After 150 years of men dedicating their lives to seeking the Holy Grail which would confirm and validate Darwin's theory on origin of species, what do we have? The same finches on the Galapagos Islands where Darwin observed them 150 years ago. No new species. Millions of bones and not one factual missing link. There's geological formations with embedded fossils like the Cambrian Explosion which do not fit nicely into Darwin's theory of gradual evolution over time. Most of the purported evidence (still published in many school textbooks) has been revealed as hoaxes and fakes, or just plain "want to believe so much, that any piece that fits the theory must be true for the theory." Ignore the rest.

The contention here is what has Darwin's theory of "Survival of the Fittest" produced in the progression of human history? Did evolution produce gas-powered mowers, sticky notes, aluminum foil, zip-lock bags, war and peace, medicines, mammogram machines, vaccines, zippers, microwaves, coffee machines, etc.?

Name another inventive species on planet Earth? Name any species so inventive that they manufacture mass destructive devices and then try to control them to keep mankind from becoming extinct? Any other species who desires and explores the reaches of the furthermost points in the universe down to the invisible quarks and other quantum-level unknowns? Name another species who seeks immortality and at the same time wars and aborts their young, while continually seeking peace?

Without belief in Darwin's overall theory, would scientists still have discovered the wonders of the genetic code? Would they have embarked on exploring the universe, developing complex mathematical equations, discovered black holes and other anomalies? How has evolutionary theory contributed to discoveries of the building blocks, atoms and molecules?

The most recent fairy tale strummed up by the sleight-of-hand media magicians was panning-banning Ann Coulter's best-selling book, "Godless: The Church of Liberalism." Their manipulative implication: Bad book, don't read.

What they fear is that you will read the last five chapters (out of 11 chapters) which covers the wackiness of Science, censorship and Darwin's faithful sidekicks. Coulter magnificently pulls off the blinders and in a logical, intelligent and clarifying stance, realistically shows the absurdity of the theory in relation to modern discoveries in science. Yet the hold-on-to-Darwin-at-any-cost radicals deny the evidence of, well, no evidence.

The public schools are suffering the effects of the battle to release Darwinian theory from a box of its own making, the parameters set by Darwin so long ago and still upheld by modern radical disciples. The result is the dissolving of Darwin's theory into a religion and a body politic which controls states' educational curriculum and is manipulated by the radicals.

One example: ACLU sued Cobb County, Georgia, for putting stickers in biology textbooks. The stickers asked students to study evolution "with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered." Coulter makes the point: "According to the ACLU, an open mind violates the 'separation of church and state.'" The judges agreed.

It's amazing to me that parents continue to cede to Darwinism Religion in our public schools while they take their children to church on Sunday.

Do we really require Darwin's evolution theory for human societies and the study of all things? What has it produced? There is no heart, mind and soul in Darwin's theory, only random mechanics.

After an hour of silence, my husband could only offer, tongue-in-cheek: "Textbook professors." The deep silence of the Darwinian faithful, who cannot give us the answers for their beliefs, speaks to us loudly and clearly.

Though the universe appears silent, God speaks: "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard." Psalms 19:1-3.
