This may be the ultimate creationist witches brew — deep, thick, and unbearably foul-smelling. It’s from the creation scientists at Ken Ham’s Answers in Genesis (AIG) — the creationist ministry of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia. Their headline is The Results of Evolution — Could It Be the Bloodiest Religion Ever?
It was written by Bodie Hodge, who has a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from Southern Illinois University. Instead of pursuing an engineering career, he’s a speaker, writer, and researcher for AIG. Not only that, but Bodie is ol’ Hambo’s son-in-law. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
Christians are often confronted with the claim that a humanistic worldview will help society become better. Even the first Humanist Manifesto, of which belief in evolution is a subset, declared, “The goal of humanism is a free and universal society in which people voluntarily and intelligently co-operate for the common good.” But can such a statement be true?
We don’t know much about humanism, and we don’t understand how evolution could be a “subset” of it. As for the humanism’s claim that it will make us better, Bodie says:
For starters, what do the authors mean by “good”? They have no legitimate foundation for such a concept, since one person’s “good” can be another’s “evil.” To have some objective standard, they must borrow from the teachings of God in the Bible.
Yeah, yeah — only creationists know what’s good. Let’s read on:
Beyond that, does evolution really teach a future of prosperity? What has been the result of evolutionary thinking in the past hundred years? Perhaps this could be a test of what is to come. Let’s first look at the casualties stemming from leaders with evolutionary worldviews, beginning in the 1900s, to see the hints of what this “next level” looks like:
Then Bodie babbles on for several paragraphs claiming that Darwin was responsible for Hitler, Lenin, Mao, and Pol Pot. You can read that junk if you like, but we’ll skip it. We will, however, link to a few of our posts that debunk that rubbish — see Hitler and Darwin, and Marx, Stalin, and Darwin, and Racism, Eugenics, and Darwin, and finally, the only World War II leader who even read Darwin was Winston Churchill.
Okay, back to Bodie. Now he starts ranting about abortion:
The war on children has been one of the quietest and yet bloodiest in the past hundred years. In an evolutionary mindset, the unborn have been treated as though they are going through an “animal phase” and can simply be discarded.
Evolutionary views have decreased the value of human life. Throughout the world the casualties of the war on children is staggering. Though deaths of children and the unborn did exist prior to the “evolution revolution,” they have increased exponentially as a result of Darwinian teachings.
What can we say? The creationists’ claim that they’re the ones who value human life, yet they constantly glorify their myth of a global flood which killed virtually everyone on Earth. As for Darwin’s non-existent role in abortion and eugenics, see Egnor: Darwin, Scopes, and Eugenics.
Our last excerpt comes from Bodie’s conclusion section:
Is evolution the cause of wars and deaths? Absolutely not — both existed long before Darwin was born. Sin is the ultimate cause. But an evolutionary worldview has done nothing but add fuel to the fire.
In this day and age, governments readily permit the killing of children, both boys and girls, and sometimes command it (abortion). By providence, however, you survived. While we can’t change the past, we can learn from it. If we are to stop this continuing bloodshed, we must get back to the Bible and realize the bankrupt religion of evolution has led only to death — by the millions.
So there you are. It was the biggest ark-load of creationist excrement we’ve ever seen in one post. AIG is a purveyor of the most vile nonsense imaginable. And they’re proud of it!
