A List of Ways Darwinism and Materialism Hold Back Science

March 23, 2014

Darwinian evolutionary dogma (and other materialist assumptions about the universe) has held science back in at least the following ways:

* Not looking for C14 in dinosaur bones and diamonds for the same reason.

* Natural selection/survival of fittest ideas affecting fishing, hunting, conservation.

* Tonsils being unnecessarily removed.

* Spinal curvature assumptions.

* “Junk” DNA not being studied.

* Treatment of Ota Benga, Aborigines, racist implications of evolution.

* Aryan supremacy (ultimately inbreeding).

** Today “Lysenkoism” is mostly debunked, but it not only confused science in the old Soviet Union  (and I’ll betcha research would uncover some big influences in the USA too). It resulted in mass starvation in the USSR too.

** From wikipedia on “Vestigiality”, there is a paragraph (180 “vestigial organs” in the Scopes Trial!):

In 1893, Robert Wiedersheim published a list of 86 human organs that were, in his words, “formerly of greater physiological significance than at present”. Theorizing that they were vestiges of evolution, he called them “vestigial”.[10] Since his time, the function of some of these structures has been discovered, while other anatomical vestiges have been unearthed, making the list primarily of interest as a record of the knowledge of human anatomy at the time. Later versions of Wiedersheim’s list were expanded to as many as 180 human “vestigial organs”. This is why the zoologist Horatio Newman said in a written statement read into evidence in the Scopes Trial that “There are, according to Wiedersheim, no less than 180 vestigial structures in the human body, sufficient to make of a man a veritable walking museum of antiquities.”[11]

[These “vestigial structures” have ALL been proven to have currently important function for the human body. You can survive without some of them, but you can also survive without one of your arms, tooQ

In this entry wikipedia quotes Darwin on the subject, and some of those quotes look like a good logical foundation for Lysenkoism.

** Mendel’s experiments with inheritance of traits (probably) neglected. (Disproves Lysenko too)

** Belief in abiogenesis would make for misdirection in research into microbiology.

** Moronic assumptions about how human engineers would design a human body better, no doubt still warping biology studies (and students). (Like how they would assemble a human eye. -The fool says he could do better than God-)

** Wasting a (private donation to Harvard) of a million dollars to study how life came from non-life.

** The suppression of proven real good scientists like Forest Mims who embarrassed the entire NASA staff with his $300 of instruments for family research.
==> And other such blacklistings of guys with good credentials.

** Censorship of smack-on predictions based on blacklisted creationists, like Russ Humphreys’ calculations for magnetic field strength of the outer gas giants.

** Censorship of phenomena contrary to Darwinian and long-age physics predictions, like Halton Arps’ catalog of “peculiar galaxies”. It was suppressed until some Berkeley materialist believers wrote about it.

** History censorship, such as Isaac Newton’s own declarations about #1 why he did science (to inspire faith in young men), #2 why science works, and so on.

** The delay (and still suppressed media) in discovery of the statistically “quantized” distribution of red shift measurements, meaning that according to the supposed red shift-distance relationship, all the distant objects “look like” they roughly “cluster together” in concentric spheres with a relative apparent center on the Earth.

** The “apparent” physical and structural orientation of the earth’s local cosmic neighborhood that centers on the Earth. <<== This one even appeared in a Wired Magazine article. The writer went to some museum that had set up a 3-D structure with the astronomical neighborhood of galaxies surrounding the Earth. He said he was struck by this apparent orientation to Earth.

** It’s finally leaking into non-Creationist venues, but Russ Humphrey’s observation about the universe’s apparent centering on our own “neighborhood” of the universe.

** The ongoing refusal to research into what one native African tribe calls “mokele-membe”.

* Archaeology: The neglect of the Ica Stones, the carvings at Angkor (Cambodia temple), and other such things. There are more than one images of dinosaurs at that temple that was built in the 12th or 13th century. One touristy web page says there’s only one, but there are more:
http://www.atlasobscura.com/places/dinosaur-angkor-wat

* PILTDOWN MAN. -> When the Internet was still young, a self-identified “evolutionary biologist” called me an unmitigated liar for saying Piltdown man was a hoax.

* Hoeckel’s fraudulent drawings still used today in high school biology textbooks, with some very serpentine disclaimer language. (They were offered straight up to my own kids in the 1990s and past Y2K too).

The Resurrection of Christ

I found an interesting writing by Rich Wendling at the following link, an answer to “skeptic” Valerie Tarico at another link:
http://richwendling.wordpress.com/2012/10/01/pushing-people-out-of-the-church-part-6/

The article starts with

The fact that some naïve Bible study leader ignorantly thought that “dinosaur skeletons actually are the bones of the giants described in early books of the Bible” isn’t an argument against Biblical creationism. It does, however, point out the fact that too many Christians are ignorant of both science and the Bible

–> But then they object to using the cockamamie Hopeful Monster theory of evolution against Darwinian evolution. It proves nothing. The ancient Greeks, without visiting Galapagos, were the first to propose evolution. In fact, it is condemned explicitly in Jeremiah as a pagan idea:

Saying to a stock, Thou [art] my father; and to a stone, Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned [their] back unto me, and not [their] face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us. – Jeremiah 2:27

Rich makes this point further on:

All origins theories other than the straight-forward Biblical account of six literal days a few thousand years ago take mankind’s fallible ideas and hold them in higher authority than God’s Word. All of these other theories question the authority of the straight-forward teaching of the Bible.

That’s true  but it’s important to mention that belief in the Bible is grounded not in the false “blind faith” professed by many Christians, but used as an accusation against all of us, but these God-deniers still have to prove they are not science-deniers by addressing the science that has converted many a scientist and atheist to young-earth creationist.

The very origin of Christianity is based on the hard evidence of the fact of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ in bodily form. Demonstrably dead from the piercing of the Roman sword in his side to make sure, as historians say the Romans did to make sure of it, he was seen by “five hundred” in the flesh, eating with them and having  fellowship with them.

After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. — First Corinthians 15:6

As always, then, the arguments against the Biblical facts of Christianity are religious, whether they are made by “Christians” or by atheists or Darwinians.

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, – Romans 1:22

Whence one of my favorite couple of verses:

[[To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.]] The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. – Psalm 19:1

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.- Isaiah 1:8

This is a photo I took on 2 June, 2007 at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky, United States. I asked beforehand, and was granted permission to photograph on the property and release the photos to the public domain. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Libel for being called a “creationist“, being lumped together with those who believe Adam and Eve and Noah were real people and the Bible is historically accurate? My, my. Badge of honor rather.

Of course we’re way different. Intelligent Design includes many self-described Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and one miniscule thread of atheism that even floated a proposal that believing in the Big Bang afterward )today) caused it to happen in our past. (Kid you not).

Science carried me with history, facts, logic catalysts from atheism to a fleeting belief in design by some entity but didn’t stop until the evidence for Adam and Noah became too obvious.

ID thinkers should check the mirror when they talk about young-earth creationists, compare their anti-creationist missives with their own criticisms of anti-designists. Especially when they pretend that young-earth creationists are not driven by evidence from science, or simply ignore it. Because evidence that the earth is young, evidence of the Flood, and verifications of predictions based on the Biblical narrative like Russel Humphreys’ calculations of planetary magnetic fields, are also scientific.

That said, most ID scientists and writers do not engage much in creationism-bashing. Eugenie Scott does mean the word “creationist” as an insult and as a propaganda trick when he uses it against Intelligent Design theory, so it’s fair to say he was trying to libel somebody with the label. But some do fault YEC (Young-Earth Creationists) wrongly as rejecting science. Andrew Flew fits there, as a believer in God that became a theist based on Design science, but still had pejorative and false labels for the God of the Bible. He may have progressed further before passing on, time will tell on the other side.

“Problems” with the KJB? Think again, look again, be a Berean

November 15, 2011

The NIV and other translations and the accusations of “problems” with the KJB I have seen have provided excellent occasions to show why I am a KJBO defender. Two-thirds of the Bible-gone! The accuracy of a different second-person singular–Gone! The cardinal order of the six days of creation –Gone! Not one jot or tittle shall fail–Gone with thousands on thousands of jots and tittles. Jots and tittles were an obvious allusion to the tiniest nuance of meaning in the prophecies, and they are lost first in all the dynamic-philosophy translations, and lost in unnecessary “language modernization” in the others.

For God is not the author of the confusion of a hundred different translations. I have yet to see ONE BIBLICAL REFERENCE that says God would never intervene to ensure one accurate standard for his word, down to jot and tittle.

By their fruits ye shall know them. Claiming that the gospel of Mark leaves Jesus in the tomb and never left us the Great Commission (profusely quoted by the earliest Christian leaders) reminds of me of Job’s comment: “If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me”. What can we expect from the Greek base compiled by a pair of reprobates about whom their own sons wrote that they did not believe Jesus was God, that Charles Darwin was right and the creation narrative in Genesis was myth, that Jesus’ sacrifice for sins was a “bloody horror”, and that belief in the miracles was stupid.

Yeah, I can believe they were almost incredulous at the request from the Bishop for their help.

Where is the verse that says God said he would never ever make sure the words in the original autographs were understood the way he wanted them to be understood ages later? With all he said about his word, why oh why would he trust in us mere men for the job??!

Jer 17:5 Thus saith the LORD; Cursed [be] the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.

Many infallible proofs of the Bible

October 2, 2011

To those who claim that faith in the Bible is based on pure whim, as somebody who was won to belief in the Bible from atheism and radical socialism through pure history, science, facts, sifted through Boolean logic, I must strongly protest with Paul that our faith in Jesus Christ is based on “MANY INFALLIBLE PROOFS”. Once I got there, in my forty years hence, the evidence just keeps piling up. Some do come to Jesus because they were simply raised in a strong household, others for other reasons, but making their decision at some point.

But all believers are well served by the fact that Jesus doesn’t even really expect us to have a “blind” faith. The Darwinists and materialists are the ones with a “blind faith” in nature to create everything. In an interesting humorous joke by God, the famous atheist proselytizer Richard Dawkins even said so in the very title to his book “The Blind Watchmaker”. God makes even the wrath of man to praise him.

In fact, we are commanded to have an answer for those who ask us such questions.

1 Peter 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

Acts 1:3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:

We “have not seen” the Lord Jesus with our eyes like Thomas did even before putting his hand through the wound, but we have an embarrassment of evidence today.The lightning-fast pace at which the gospel expanded across the Roman Empire from Jerusalem after the Resurrection, the written eyewitness testimony of the apostles that has more strenght than an affidavit, signed in their own blood, martyred for the gospel, including Thomas “the doubter”.

And today thousands of Creation scientists bear witness to the fact that “the heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament showeth his handiwork”. Biology bears witness too, with every major advance exposing the folly of the pagan Darwinian doctrine of spontaneous biogenesis, including fossils, DNA, epigenetics, and irreducible molecular machines.

Entropy, Adam and Eve, Seth’s sisters, genetics and in-breeding

October 2, 2011

n-breeding was not a problem for the sons and daughters of Adam and Eve. From the Law of Entropy and the knowledge that today all species incorporate some “genetic defects” within, products of mutation, and from the knowledge that Adam and Eve were “very good” creations, perfect in fact, directly fashioned by God, inbreeding was not a problem for the first generations, neither for the grandchildren of Noah.

Besides which, the genome is built by God with mechanisms for adaptation to changing conditions, including great numbers of “spare parts” –which used to be called “junk DNA” by the clueless arrogant smarter-than-thou Darwinian pagans.
That’s right, many superstitious tribes of Old Testament times also believed of a stock “Thou art my father”, and of a stone, “Thou hast brought me forth”.
Read Jeremiah 2:27, it’s right there.

More Darwinian Follies…

February 25, 2011

Good examples of misinformation and information gaps repeated ad nauseum to confuse the gullible:

See here an example of backwards logic: “The ‘Hobbit were diseased humans’ argument is a long way from proven, yet you deploy it like its been settled.”

Turn that around. The point was and is that the Hobbit was treated as a glorious missing link until oops, what about this, what about that, and some of them said it was consistent with “diseased humans”. Except I think it is just another example of short people, like the Pygmies in Africa.

They are in danger of being eaten –literally– out of existence right now in Africa, as Christianity gets pushed back and the old paganism recovers. They are now regarded as animals by warring tribes around them, “missing links” you might say.

Christian missionaries are leading the charge to save them from their persecutors.

“Nested heirarchies of organisms” are a natural corollary of both functionality, using the same building blocks for survival and propagation of life –DNA, proteins, and all that.

It’s telling that evolutionist logic can get “convergent evolution” when the functionality doesn’t fit the hierarchies, but cannot see functional convergence as a natural attribute of design.

Claims that the “fossils show a continuum of features from the past to the present” only serve to expose the abysmal state of science education, and the attack on true science that the Darwinian religious beliefs represent.

…Noah’s…would expect to see a uniform distribution of animal types across the world, originating as they did from one release point somewhere in the middle east…

LOL. Another example of a belly-laughing demonstration of selective logical circuits, who don’t know how to apply the principles they use elsewhere to this one. There are major campaigns on to save ecologies endangered from the introduction of alien species, as we speak.

They brag about how fast a peppered moth goes from white to black to white, but fast radiated breeding and natural selection works for your theory you see it at work here too.

Here you go, a YOUNG-Earth creationist who explains how the marsupials and exotic animals of Australia show consistency with the idea of descent from their non-marsupial counterparts:

http://www.nwcreation.net/articles/marsupial_migration.html

The various kinds of animals in Australia line up with the kinds of animals elsewhere, suggesting common descent from those animals’ ancestors, rather than a common marsupial ancestor. This is one of Darwinians’ favorite toys in their grab bag: “convergent evolution” based on conditions in Australia.

Stephen Gould has admitted that the fossils show no continuum of anything at all, where it counts. There are no mammals with feathers, but neither do you have anything at all between reptiles and birds, and the showcase ‘examples’ of one or two break down to plainly one or the other on examination.

Here is the Biblical description of DNA in fact:

Psalms 139:15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

How many lines of evidence form nature corroborate your bible’s account?

Plenty. There’s the above verse describing DNA. Others describe the effect of a nearby nuclear explosion on human flesh in a future prophecy, the vast currents, or “rivers”, in the oceans (at a time when Greeks were saying the oceans were generally calm and shallow), they hydrologic cycle, and don’t forget an amazing set of rules for scientific hygiene in food preparation and treatment of diseases. The “stretching out” of the heavens.

Looks like none to me.

Well, Jesus healed the blind who accepted faith in him, and he can heal you too.

Its embarrassing to watch.

Yes, like Muggeridge predicted, [Darwinian] evolution will be seen soon enough as the object of ridicule and hilarious laughter, as scientists will marvel at its pagan mythology.

Nothing new under the sun:

Jeremiah 2:27 Saying to a stock, Thou art my father; and to a stone, Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned their back unto me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us.

Let us all flee from the kind of paganism that will only lead to another Hitler’s fascination with helping the human species evolve, another Margaret Sanger (founder of the Birth Control League) that wants us to eliminate “inferior stock”.

Let us find love in the God of Love and his Son.

Miracles and Gifts Are for Us Today!

September 30, 2010

>>It was asked in another Group, “I want to understand what a Christian is taught about why only some disciples became apostles.”

“I’m glad you asked that question.” 🙂

Someone answered with this:

>>The twelve through nineteen men who where called an Apostle in the New Testament were in one way or another chosen directly by Yeshua Moshiach to be more than just an disciple, and the words disciple and Apostle were sort of used interchangeably when talking about them. The only difference that I could really find between the Apostles and the other hundreds of true disciples of Christ, is that Christ chose them for more of a purpose than just being a disciple.

—That, my friends, is of special note, the interchangeable use of the two words. I do find one difference, where Paul mentions his authority as an apostle in I Corinthians 9:1: Am I not an apostle? am I not free? have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? are not ye my work in the Lord?

In the context of the chapter preceding, he invokes the title to strengthen the point of his teaching about considering he weaker spiritual vessels and abstaining from meats when he eats with vegetarians, the like.

In the context of the following scriptures it is to emphasize the authority he has to ask for support in view of his ministering spiritual things to them.

I have heard of this verse being used to support the argument that “apostle” is a stronger honorific than is “disciple”. But he is using the title here for things that the same dispensationalism teachers use for their own support (reaping spiritual things and reaping carnal).

+================================+

Here’s another common misconception:

>>To the Apostles Yeshua Moshiach gave them authority to cast out unclean spirits, and to heal every disease and every bodily weakness. But after all the nineteen Apostles were dead there is no record in the Bible of more being made. In any case, all most everything the Apostles did where done by other followers of Christ using their Spiritual Gifts that were given to them by Christ after Christ accepted them into His family.

Now you’re using absence of evidence as implying evidence of absence. That’s a logical chasm as wide as the Grand Canyon. Nonetheless, consider Luke 10, where the word “apostle” is not uttered once:

Luke 10:1 ¶After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.
9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
Luke 10:17 ¶And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.
18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

When Jesus charged the eleven and whoever else was present in Mark 16 with the Great Commission, he could have said “These signs shall follow you” (to the eleven) but he did NOT. Instead, he said, “And these signs shall follow them that BELIEVE;”:

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

-And sure enough there have been enough healing outside the apostles. Ananias in Acts 9 is called a “disciple”. Just to say that the gifts of miracles faded away when the apostles went on is a conjecture. Thing is the entire New Testament, Revelation included, was written during the times of the apostles, so it is a conjecture based on the warped history preserved by the Roman Catholic Church. But they never gave up on healing either for that matter, even though they introduced superstitions later like a statuettes that bleed and all that.

I’ve seen all the verses that purport to indicate the death of the gifts and callings of God and there is not one of those verses that says anything about an expiration date for them. And all the reasons for them being ended are applicable as well to the same preachers that teach these things, and the reasons they give for them being given in the first place are reasons for the gifts persisting throughout the ages to the present day.

I have known and met Christians who had been healed –after group prayer and laying on of hands (or not)– of asthma, migraines, cancer (she helps a local missionary food distribution work), a distended belly (my stepdaughter) that refused to quit and the doctors gave up on that was healed after prayer, a brother with a “leaky” heart (something like that, according to his doctors) for which he was given six months tops by military doctors discharged who lived fifty years more, and this last was born of a mother who had been healed of an accident that had her bedridden for five years and was walking around with a missing vertebra!

I worked with missionaries ministering to the wandering youth of the 1960s (like I was) in California, and some of the brethren told me about a bus that stopped in the middle of a road trip to a camp they had, where for press of time and certain urgencies could not spend time in repairs (without the means as well). So without looking at the engine even they laid hands on it, commanded it in the name of Jesus to go, and it started up and took them there.

You skeptics already heckling, the punchline is that when they got to the destination and opened it up to see what the problem was, it was a cracked block!

The days of miracles, and the days of God honoring his saints’ prayers and the days of the gifts of healing and miracles is not over, not! “All good things” come from above, from “the father of lights”.

There are people who have successfully prayed for others for healing while they themselves are still wheelchair bound, no matter, God has his purpose in these things.

Folks like Joni Eareckson Tada are doing a magnificent work for the Lord encouraging others in similar conditions. One testimony I read once was of a man convicted in his heart by a fellow with no legs who was one of the most cheerful people he had ever met.

So no, it’s not because she’s a big sinner she’s there, it’s because she’s a big saint! I don’t think I would have the grace for that, or maybe I would but she’s the one God trusted with it.

In Joel’s book it says in the last days we’ll have dreams and visions, and in Daniel it says specifically about the Tribulation that “the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits”. Nothing shall hurt the two prophets in Jerusalem and fire comes out of their mouths and destroys their enemies.

“Greater works than these shall ye do” NOT because “ye are my disciples” or “apostles” but “because I go unto the Father”

Daniel 11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

ID, Creationism, Religion and Science

August 17, 2010

Newspeak dictionaries put out by the Propaganda Ministry of Big Brother try to paint ID as creationism, but of course they know that it’s not the same thing any more than SETI is just a way to sneak UFO abductions into mainstream science. Not that mainstream science shuns all craziness, and not that there’s anything wrong with creationism!

> Religion and Science used to be bedfellows in past centuries and many of the scientist expressed a belief in a supreme being and many identified themselves as Christians but times have changed and Science and Religion got divorced and Science married Politics and Religion has tried to be Scientific with not good results, at least in today’s climate of controversy…

“Religion” is a word used today with a meaning that is mixed up with the word “Organized Religion”. It was the organized form the US Founding Fathers had in mind with the word in the First Amendment. This, in spite of the fact that some of them, the minority of them, had a more personal view. And even those made a point of frequent church attendance, being Christians.

But true Bible believers should rejoice that that the Bible, is “not a science textbook”.

“Consensus” (unproven) science, has been knocked down hundreds, even thousands of times, by actual discoveries and real-world experimental results that use the real-world scientific method. And yet blind-faith followers acting like herds of buffalo keep picking up “consensus” and trying to make it look like it has some magical quality of truth to it.

> I think ID is an attempt to get Christianity back into the public schools…

Government child indoctrination centers (aka “public schools”) have made mincemeat of children’s brains the last century or so, and not just in areas that relate to Creation and Intelligent Design. In the US alone, the primary-school level McDuffy readers of 1915 (I have read parts of some of them) would humiliate Harvard grads of today.

The campaigns for “public schools” was driven –is driven– by forces that want an easily manipulated same-thinking population.

Faith in anything other than the almighty state is anathema to the plutocrats, and generates independent-minded thinkers. The only opiate that plutocrat Marxists will allow is their own pie-in-the-sky promises with which they fool the “public”, up until they take power and consolidate it, at which time they don’t care what you think.

That’s why the battleground fro freedom is shaping up to be the Internet itself. The American administration (both faces of the political duopoly), along with all the other national administrations, is collaborating in the development of strategies to bring it under control. They have only allowed it to get a network medium established that addicts the important elements of the populations. (They don’t think much of the unconnected poor).

THEY HATE VOUCHERS

That’s why they hate school vouchers, but they hate tax credits even more. They despise the idea of letting parents have any more control over their children’s education and future than the parents already have. In fact it interferes with their strategies to displace the parents’ role in the formation of new generations.

It is not just Christians who should be reacting with fury against the takeover of their children’s lives by the state, and indeed, there are many others. Misguided anarchists are one group, but there are even-minded atheists and people of other persuasions who are disgusted with the academic neglect of official institutions. Some of them even add one plus one and get two when they realize that the official government neglect of education in their turf is deliberate.

It’s a good thing we can know that even though they may build up their global dictatorship infrastructure to prepare for the Beast and his tyranny, he will have massive opposition from many different sectors of the body politic, not just the Christians who knew what was coming. And it’s a good thing that before he can totally destroy the world, Jesus will be coming back to put a stop to the madness.

Bioethics? What Bioethics?

August 7, 2010

Found on the Web:

July 31, 2010

BioEdge: From the Editor:

One area that we would like to cover more thoroughly in BioEdge is how some bioethicists are adapting their ethics to scientific developments. For thousands of years, it has been thought that some actions, like murder or adultery, were inherently bad. Now the new field of evolutionary psychology has “discovered” that good and evil are written into our genetic code and evolutionary history.

Obviously this upsets the applecart of religion, but not only that. A growing number of people – the transhumanists — believe that their destiny is to transcend evolution. Presumably, then, they would transcend outmoded morality, too. From what I have read of the theorists of neuroethics, we can look forward to revolutionary proposals in bioethics.

Is this something to look forward to? Or to dread? Leave your comments on this week’s article about a conference on the new science of morality….

http://www.bioedge.org/index.php/bioethics/bioethics_article/9132/

That “evolutionary history” they’re talking about is just the required nod required of Darwinian nature worship when discussing biology, but as to the “discovery” that good and evil are bequeathed upon us from birth, this is exactly what thinking Christians have been saying ever since Paul said that good and evil were “written into [our] hearts”, as in ever since Adam and Eve ate the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil”, we know what it is:

Romans 2:14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)

> Obviously this upsets the applecart of religion, but not only that.

This just shows how clueless they are. It is their own applecart they upset with this, because Christians have been saying in various paraphrases throughout he ages that we are not only created with a God-sized vacuum in our hearts, we also come with intuitive inborn understanding of what is right and wrong.

They are proving Paul’s point, because God said he made them that way, and this also shows another example of how science testifies to God’s word.

It often even appears in “discoveries” like this that God is letting them deceive themselves into thinking they found evidence for their own willful disbelief, to give them incentive to share the evidence of his glory in his creation with the world.

Psalms 76:10  Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.

> A growing number of people – the transhumanists — believe that their destiny is to transcend evolution. Presumably, then, they would transcend outmoded morality, too. From what I have read of the theorists of neuroethics, we can look forward to revolutionary proposals in bioethics.

“Revolutionary proposals” baloney. Back to more depravity. They’ve already brought back prenatal infanticide, unmerciful “mercy” killing, public rewards for sodomy, impunity for presidential rapists, and while Planned Barrenhood never stopped with the race purification business, the usual professional God-haters are now openly talking about it.

These are some of the signs of the end, road signs that tell us the Antichrist Dictatorship is ahead and in formation.

But even though he wreaks organized havoc on the earth, even though he adds his own dosage of misery to the “natural” judgments of God to come in the Tribulation when he is persecuting the saints and oppressing the poor, even with all that, it says “He shall come to his end, and none shall help him”.
