It has been demonstrated unequivocally from historical evidence:
I: Although Charles Darwin has been heralded as the great discoverer of evolution in countless textbooks, nature documentaries and magazine articles, where his name is still trumpeted as the man who proved that men are descended from apes, in fact nothing could be farther from the truth. Darwin was by no means the first person to elucidate the theory of evolution - the entire theory has been around since the time of the ancient Greeks - and natural selection was not an original idea of his either; he merely popularized a concept that the social and literary circles of his day had already been entertaining for quite some time, where he simply dressed it up and furnished it in an appropriate package that suited a larger audience and appealed to a clique of rationalists who spread the doctrine into the universities and dominant media outlets of the day, which doctrine has to this present day profoundly influenced our outlook on life, as well as many of our laws concerning human conduct, and presented a world view of naturalistic materialism as somehow more "scientific"than that of a theistic world view.
Darwin borrowed nearly the sum total of his ideas from others while taking most of the credit himself, hence Darlington's classic and apt description of him.
II: Darwin's actual scientific and educational background in the higher sciences was minimal; even though he had been to college his academic experience was somewhat less than noteworthy, but he had much influence through his family name, easily made friends in prominent positions, and was able to put forth his ideas not because of their scientific merit but because of his ability to cleverly present them as being the outcome of a logical and sequential process, when in fact this was not the case at all.
III: In his
Origin of Species he failed to deal with the concept that the title of his book
implied; the book is a compilation full of tautologies, or what is called in the
vernacular "circular reasoning." In other words, because the assumption of a
thing is true, then it is true, with no real proof. Darwin began his work with
the assumption of evolution and brings many examples to light as so-called
evidences for this assumption, but he never really documented how they have
actually evolved or in what manner or when evolution took place. In his entire
Origin he does not present one single example of the origin of any species or of
evolution taking place now or in the past.
His book is rife with speculation, much like his well known boyhood fantasies, devoid of scientific merit, and full of admissions of his own ignorance of the true development of any species or of specialized organs in general.*
His basic premise of natural selection has been proven to be useless in theory and actual process for originating any species, he had no knowledge of genetics, and the paleontological record does not verify fossil evidence for evolution ever having occurred, and Darwin himself was forced to admit it.
his letter to F.W. Hutton he admitted after he had written the Origin that he
had never seen any evidence for evolution.
In light of the flimsy arguments for the evolutionary theory, Darwins own inadequate understanding of science and his utter failure to truly document evidence for evolution in his major work, it is absolutely incredible that he has been elevated to such a prominent position in the eyes of so many people not only in the educational establishment but of the world in general.
One reason for this is that there is a clear and pervasive ignorance in the minds of people as to what Darwin really said and didn't say, which ignorance is spawned by his followers who have a virtual monopoly on the centers of learning and power in the educational and media establishments, where his reputation is zealously defended and guarded by an elite corps of literati who have a vested interest in propagating his myth.
That such an idea as evolution, so profoundly lacking in scientific validity, with neither biological nor paleological proof could be spread from our highest centers of learning represents a curious phenomenon, which is that human beings will believe what they want to believe if it suites their personal fancies, regardless of the factual evidence of the case.
This is prophesied in the Bible, where it is said that in the last days, men would turn aside from the truth and have itching ears, following after lies and cunningly devised fables of men.
The theory of evolution is just such a fable.
World famous journalist and philosopher Malcolm Muggeridge said, "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 of the future. Posterity will marvel that so very flimsy and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity that it has."
It is also prophesied in the Bible that men would ignore the evidence that there had once been a previous world-wide catastrophe such as the Biblical Flood of Noah, which came as a judgement on the wickedness of mankind; the idea that human moral conduct could possibly influence physiological phenomena is ridiculed by atheists and evolutionists in general, and they would substitute their theory of uniformitarianism: "For this they are willingly ignorant of, that the world that then was perished, being over run with water," but instead they would say that "all things continue as they have from the beginning."
In ignoring the severity of a previous Divine Judgement, they are shoving aside the possibility of a future time of judgement as well, substituting relativistic morality for the absolute standards of a loving and righteous God, inserting man made opinions in place of God's Revelation, breeding a self-concocted amorality so that "every man can do what is right in his own eyes."
It is written, "There are many devices in a man's heart, nevertheless, the counsel of the Lord shall stand." God's wisdom has made man's schemes appear to be foolishness. This is also prophesied in the Bible, when it says that in the final time there would rise a "lawless one", known as the anti-christ, the "son of perdition" who would lead mankind in one final rebellion against God, attempting to reject God's sovereign Lordship and instead place themselves on the throne, as it is written, "The Kings of the earth have rebelled against the Lord and against the Lords anointed."
Take heart though, the final victory is the Lords; in fact, He won it two thousand years ago.
In this study, I have demonstrated the implausibility of the theory of evolution from the writings of it's own most fervent adherents. This was intentional. The best testimony in a court of law is when a person is convicted by his own words, their own admission of guilt is considered the most reliable evidence of wrong doing, the evolutionists themselves are their own worst witnesses to the evidence that what they have been trying, unfortunately quite successfully for a long period of time, to pawn off on the general public as the authentic story of man's origin is a mass of fantastic and unproven theories without one iota of fact.
As demonstrated in the third chapter, evolution is nothing more than the resurrection of an old pagan creation myth, biased toward a materialistic view of the creation of the universe, propagated by those who do not wish to acknowledge in their hearts the plain, straight-forward, scientifically accurate Biblical story of Creation as told in the book of Genesis.
There truly is no conflict with a religious world-view and a scientific one, and this has been documented also, but we must not go to the other extreme and equate science with religion; scientific evidence for the existence of God can never substitute knowing Him through faith,and serving Him through love; we can never fully understand God or analyze Him, since He is greater in an infinite way than the mind of man [although Theology, the study of God and His attributes, has manifold blessings and benefits and is rightly the Queen of sciences), thus trusting Him, loving Him, and following Him is man's highest duty.
Science must always be subservient to faith, never equal with it. Michael Denton attributes the reason that people believe in evolution not to scientific facts, but rather to psychological reasons. I want to go a step further. I believe that the reason so many people believe in evolution has it's root in spiritual causes. "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against spiritual wickedness in the heavenly places."
The Bible says that in the last days people who turn away from the truth would come under the power of a great deception, by which the entire world would be seduced. The original fall of man took place when a foreign, hostile intelligence that had rebelled against the rule of God aeons earlier invaded the human domain and deceived an originally perfect man and woman to disobey God, thus forfeiting their lives in the outcome. This hostile intelligence and his hoard of invisible followers have fomented every unjust war, murder, act of betrayal,and perverted violation of human purity and dignity since the dawn of history.
There is a most significant event that has occurred since the fall of man that has radically changed the situation. Some two thousand years ago, the greatest event in the history of the human race, indeed, in the history of the universe occurred. When we were under the penalty of this rebellion, which the Bible calls the wages of sin, or separation from God's Holy presence, the Son of God manifested Himself into human history through the womb of a virgin, and by His sinless life perfectly fulfilled the commandment to live a righteous life, shed His precious blood and died on a cross a cruel death in our place as a substitute so that men might be restored to their right relationship to the Father of creation; then the Messiah of Israel rose from the dead physically the third day, defeating this evil intelligence that the Bible calls satan, so that men could be freed from the bondage of sin, have the Holy Spirit dwell within us and overcome the devil and all his wiles, then Jesus Christ ascended into the heavenlies to sit at the right hand of the Father, where all power in heaven and on earth has been given to Him, where he is making intercession for us against the accusations of the evil one, and saving all who call upon His name and repent of their sins.
There is a Book that tells us of a glorious destiny for all who receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. It tells of a marvelous Kingdom that we will inherit someday, a Kingdom prepared before the foundations of the world, where every precious gem will be as common as ordinary stones, where a river of the water of life will flow and where trees will be with all manner of leaves for the healing of nations, and God Himself will wipe away every tear from our eyes. There is also a stern warning in this Book for those who reject this precious offer of salvation, and an even sterner warning for those who lead others astray, especially young and impressionable souls.
According to this Book, the deception in the last days will get worse and worse, until those who choose to believe in the Book with the wonderful promises in it instead of the cunningly devised fables and"doctrines of demons"may have to give up their lives for it, but the Author of this same book says, "He who would lose his life in this world for My sake will keep it unto life everlasting."
The deception that will seduce the human race at the end of time is occurring now, it did not begin with Darwin, he was merely the latest notable in a long line of rebels who have suggested, "Yea, hath God said...?"
The picture is not completed yet though, the Master Artist has a few strokes left to put on the canvas with His brush. There is hope for America, and for the world, and that hope is for us to return to the words of the Book of Life, the Holy Bible.
Someday Jesus will return to rule the world from the capital of Israel, Jerusalem, which shall be, as it's name says, the City of Peace. As it is written in the book of the prophet Joel: "The Lord also shall roar from Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem: the heavens and earth shall tremble: and the Lord shall be a shelter for His people, and the strength of the children of Israel. So shall you know that I am the Lord your God, dwelling in Zion my holy mountain."
In that day there will be peace in the middle east, and Egypt along with Assyria will be blessed with Israel as special nations in the eyes of the Lord: “In that day there will be an alter to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to the Lord at its border. And it will be for a sign and for a witness to the Lord in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to the Lord because of the oppressors, and He will send them a Savior and a Mighty One, and He will deliver them. Then the Lord will be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians will know the Lord in that day, and will make sacrifice and offering, yes, they will make a vow to the Lord and perform it.”
“In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian will come into Egypt and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians will serve with the Assyrians.”
“In that day Israel will be one of three with Egypt and Assyria-a blessing in the midst of the land, whom the Lord of hosts shall bless, saying, “Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance.” (Isaiah: 19:19-21, 23-15)
And Isaiah has prophesied: "And it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills. And all nations shall come to it. Many people shall come and shall say, 'Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob: He shall teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths. For out of Zion shall go forth the Law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. He shall judge between the nations, and rebuke many people; they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore."
Until that time, God is preparing citizens for that Kingdom. Through the power of the cross of Christ, by the Word of God and the Holy Spirit, our hearts and minds are transformed from hearts of selfishness, pride and carnal desires to hearts of faith, humility, and charity as the image of Jesus is formed within our souls, thus the image and likeness of God that was marred by sin is restored in humankind. Thus the Law that was written in stone will be in men's hearts, as the prophet Jeremiah has said, "I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people."
What Law is it that shall be written on men's hearts? The universal Law of love, since "All the commandments, 'You shall not kill, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, and if there is any other commandment, it is fulfilled in this 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself'."
As the prophet Isaiah has said, "Is this not the fast that I have chosen: To loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke: Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out, when you see the naked that you cover him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh? If you extend your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, then your light shall dawn in the darkness, and your darkness shall be as the noonday, and the Lord shall guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not."
Thus as men's heart's are transformed by the gospel, selfishness and pride are eradicated from individuals, and this becomes pervasive throughout society, and in some manner the Kingdom to come can be pre-figured in human society perhaps even today to a certain degree, if people have ears to hear.
As we enter the 21st century mankind needs a new vision for the future, a different vision than the failed doctrines of Darwinism. We need a return to the sovereignty of God and, under God, the brotherhood of men.
Darwin rose to prominence at the same time as P.T. Barnum, the original side-show huckster who built an empire out of exhibits like his "mermaid woman" and the woman who was purported to be George Washington's wet nurse and 161 years old, both public frauds. The age of Darwin was an age of credulity, when mediums and snake oil salesmen regaled the wide-eyed public with their fantastic claims.
As the notorious conman and contemporary of Barnum, George Hull said, "There's a sucker born every minute."
This saying, wrongly attributed to Barnum, was coined by Hull, an avowed atheist, when he was exposed during a trial regarding his fraudulent attempt to pass off a forgery, the Cardiff Giant, as a genuine fossil in 1869. During this period of the Industrial Age, immediately after the publication of Darwin's Origin of Species, people were leaving the farms to work in factories and there was an increased interest in science.
Scott L. Tribble, Dept. of American History, Harvard College, Hull
recognized this and was able to capitalise on it, as "Americans were gullible with respect to biblical matters, but they
were even more credulous with regard to science." [italics mine, JMF]
"This faith in whatever worked or appeared likely to work--the "operational aesthetic" as Neil Harris has called it--made Americans particularly susceptible to pseudoscience. They were easy targets for anything couched in blandly neutral scientific and technological language. "[italics mine, JMF]
"George Hull had his finger on this pulse of belief, and he also had the tools necessary to effect a "petrified man" hoax. An avid reader of popular science, Hull had rudimentary knowledge of paleontology and geology; he could draw upon the wisdom of these fields to ground his giant in the scientifically plausible. In the wake of Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species, a sizable market existed for the science of ancestral connection, and Hull stood poised to exploit this interest." (Giants in the Head: The Cardiff Giant in American Historical Consciousness, 1869-1998, Chapter One: On the Origin and Near Extinction of Colossi, 1869-1901)
Hull's fraud was just one in a whole line of frauds stretching over a century concerning man's supposed evolution that were foisted upon the public since the publication of The Origin of Species. According to Ian Haywood "Though Darwin did not include humanity in the picture until The Descent of Man (1871), he was popularly credited with the 'monkey theory' of  our ancestry. The primitive human, monkey-like or not, was a burning issue among scientists after The Origin of Species. There was a need to find very ancient human remains, particularly a skull or part of a skull. The intensity of this need can be judged by the appearance outside Britain of three forgeries all produced in the decade after the Origin. All three were fabricated remnants of a primeval human–in effect, historical fictions." (The Missing Link: Archaeological Forgery and Fictions of the First Human Faking it , Ian Haywood 1987)
Darwin and his host have plied and manipulated public opinion into swallowing the greatest lie ever told, that of modified descent of all species from a common ancestor.
It is time that we all grew up. It is time that we came back to the Bible. It is time that we became accountable again, and returned to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. That this will take place, I have no doubt, as the prophet Habakkuk said, "The earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea."
If America is at a crossroads, it is between truth and error, between the prophets of God and the false prophets of a humanistic ideology based on an erroneous hypothetical construct that is leading many souls into perdition by its influence. Of these men who are involved in propagating this error let it be said that they represent little more than intellectual hooligans who have hijacked the educational establishment in the name of atheism and relativism and who have imposed their own peculiar "Kulturekampf" upon unsuspecting souls who come under their sway. Again, let Scripture be their warning: "He who would cause one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better if a millstone were hung about his neck, and he were drowned in the depths of the sea."
These cultural and intellectual highwaymen have inundated our universities and media with their pernicious doctrines, defrauded the public for over a century and have led us down a dangerous road of social and moral relativism that has destroyed countless lives through it's rejection of the Biblical framework of a loving God who has created man for a noble purpose: To love God with all his heart, soul, mind, and strength, growing in spirit and in wisdom, to love and serve his neighbor as himself, and to be a caretaker for all of God's creation. When we left the Biblical foundation of our nation's fathers, we forsook the Rock that it was built upon.
George Washington said in his farewell address to the nation:"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labour to subvert these great Pillars of human happiness."

*The prestigious Zoological Section of the French Institute refused Darwin membership in 1872, for which they gave the following reason: " . . .the Origin of Species and still more the Descent of Man, is not science but a mass of assertions and absolutely gratuitous hypothesis, often evidently fallacious. This kind of publication and these theories are a bad example, which a body that respects itself cannot encourage."(Life and Letters of Charles Darwin, Vol. III, pg. 224, note)
