Why is Evolution Defended?
the day of its formulation, the evolutionary theory has served the
best interests of materialist philosophy. Today, those who make
efforts to keep this theory alive are the proponents of this philosophy.
THE CONNECTION WITH MATERIALISM
The materialist philosophy was born
in the pagan culture of Ancient Greece. Darwinism laid the
so-called scientific foundation for this philosophy, which
was revived in the 18th century.
Why is the theory of evolution still defended
despite the obvious evidence against it? The American evolutionist
biologist, Michael Walker, makes the following confession as he
answers this question:
One is forced to conclude that many scientists
and technologists pay lip service to Darwinian theory only because
it supposedly excludes a creator.65
The only purpose of the promoters of the theory
is to foster the materialist philosophy which denies God. Materialism
is a blind faith that admits the existence of matter alone and denies
all supra-material beings. Since materialists derive their so-called
scientific argument from the theory of evolution, they have sustained
Darwinism since the day of its inception.
The founder of dialectic materialism (communism),
Karl Marx, wrote of Darwin's book, The Origin of Species, which
laid the basis for the theory of evolution, as "the book which
contains the basis in natural history for our view."66
Since that day, all materialists, with Marxists
in the forefront, blindly defend Darwinism.
DARWINISM AND RACISM
Another ideology that was nourished by Darwinism was
racism. In his book, The Origin of Species, Darwin suggested
that European white races had progressed in evolution, whereas
the other races were still at the same level as apes. These
ideas provided a so-called scientific justification for
racist thinkers. The racist illustration seen on the side,
showing black people and apes in the same tree, is a representation
of the impact of Darwinism in 19th century England.
The racist heritage of Darwinism provided the basis for
ideologies such as Nazism in the 20th century. The racist
views of the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler derived from Darwin's
theory of evolution. In Hitler's book Mein Kampf (My Struggle),
there were views inspired by Darwin's concept of the struggle
Yet, the lie of evolution that has cheated the
world for the last 140 years will not live on for long. The British
philosopher Malcolm Muggeridge states the inevitable collapse of
I myself am convinced that the theory of evolution,
especially the extent to which it's been applied, will be one of
the great jokes in the history books in the future. Posterity will
marvel that so very flimsy and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted
with the incredible credulity that it has.67
The first person to understand the importance of Darwin's
contribution to materialism was Karl Marx, the founder of
communism. Marx showed his sympathy to Darwin by dedicating
to him Das Kapital, which is considered his greatest work.
In the German edition of the book which he sent to Darwin,
he wrote: "From a devoted admirer to Charles Darwin"
Friedrich Engels, the biggest associate of Marx, regarded
the theory of evolution as a great support for materialism.
Engels praised Darwin and Marx as being the same: "Just
as Darwin discovered the law of evolution in organic nature,
so did Marx discover the law of evolution in human history."68
