Today’s letter-to-the-editor (or maybe it’s a column) appears in the Arizona City Independent located in Arizona City, Arizona. . It’s titled Darwinism, Marxism and our present crisis, and it’s written by a preacher. We’ll give you a few excerpts, enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, and some bold font for emphasis. As we usually do we’ll omit the writer’s name and city. Here we go:
They both were born about 1810, both published at mid-century, and both died about 1890. Charles Darwin and Karl Marx posed a double whammy to Christianity for many years. Biological Science and Political Science were affected, and all society world-wide. It’s still happening.
Yeah, yeah. See Marx, Stalin, and Darwin. Anyway, now we know what we’re dealing with. The letter (or column) continues:
Under Darwinism, which is atheistic, there is no God, no morals, no purpose in life, and no life after death, thus no accountability for one’s choices and actions.
Yippee! We can do anything and it doesn’t matter! Thank you, Darwin! Let’s read on:
Under Marxism [yeah, we know, so we’ll skip that]. Together, these two movements could be setting up society for a genocide worse than the holocausts just mentioned. With the radical Zero Population Growth Movement backing it, and Margaret Sanger’s Planned Parenthood organization perpetrating it. Sanger, an atheist, promoted selective genetics and birth control.
Oh boy. This preacher doesn’t miss anything, does he? See Racism, Eugenics, and Darwin. We continue:
Now add the global warming movement [might as well toss that in]. Neither Darwinism nor global warming is “settled science.” Ptolemy’s geocentric universe theory was “settled science” for fifteen centuries. Then came Copernicus in the 17th century and proved Ptolemy wrong. Now Copernicus’s theory is considered “settled science.” Many other examples can be given.
Yes, all science is wrong, all the time. Here’s more:
The teaching of evolution lies behind many of our society’s ills. Many college students have been brainwashed into believing a false view of science, and into thinking the Bible has been disproved. Creationist Dr. Ian Taylor writes, “When humans try to eliminate God, they have no reason to behave rationally. The tyranny of self interest dominates daily decisions. The survival of the fittest rules streets, alleyways, homes, businesses, and nations.”
This is neat — one creationist genius is quoting another! Moving along:
Some of the other destructive movements based on Darwinism are the animal rights movement, the abortion movement, the sexual revolution, the deterioration of family values, the onslaught on the U.S. Constitution, the revision of school texts to conform to politically correct evolutionist teachings, the anti Christian movement, Kevorkianism, racism, and genocides around the world. All of these movements consider human beings as just animals, without purpose, and without a need of accountability.
Kervorkian! That’s a new one! Here’s the end of it:
Darwin’s famous book, Origin of the Species, has more than those three words to its title. The entire title is Origin of the Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life. It is ridiculous that nature has a brain that can make choices, and the statement “Favored Races” is one of the basic causes for the racism in our society today.
Yea — one more
lie, or rather, bit of misinformation We explained that book title in Racism, Eugenics, and Darwin. We love this preacher! In one short letter, he did it all. The man has the brains of a kumquat.
