    Big front page article in today's Washington Post on Darwin. According to a poll they cite, 42% believe man has existed always the way he is now while 51% believe man evolved over time.

    What is interesting, is that most of the article is about micro-evolution in man: how man's hair and skin color evolved over time according to geographical location.

    However, the article does say this:
    (Emphasis added)

    We did not diverge from chimpanzees!

    And guess what the evolutionists don't believe? That God wired us for language and gave us the ability to speak and understand, because we are made in the image of God and chimps are not.

    Evolution completely attacks the Genesis statements in several places that man is made in the image of God.

    And the article says this:
    (Emphasis added)

    What a sad, sad thing to believe in!

    Well, Marcia, I don't think there is anyone who posts on this board who would say anything other than you are right - it is sad.

    Thanks for making a comment, KenH!

    There's an evolution thread going on in the Baptist only forum so I guess that's where a lot of people are putting their thoughts.

    At one point it was not permissable to discuss evolution on the BB....I know that the one forum once open has been moved to a secluded area of the Board.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    The book's correct title is...

    On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life

    Yet it is often left out.

    Good point, Enoch! When you look at what Darwin believes evolution is telling us, there is no way to reconcile it with the Bible.

    I think the quotes I posted above clearly reveal this.

    Darwin was a racial bigot:
    Most of the early support for his theories was from elitist and racial bigots as well. Course it is easy to advance an idea, even if its false, or an idealogy, even if its evil, if one makes it popular first in academic debates and groups and it adds to their self-importance and promotion.... and then introduce it to students with academic favoritism and placement rewarding students who follow and support the course while they receive and accept their indoctrination from their "educational facilitators". Not having their senses or thinking exercised in areas to question the gaps left open, they go on to their career choices..... professional, teacher, scientist, socialogist, politician.... carrying with them the propaganda and ideas they were taught and continuing the indoctrination throughout society and its professional organizations, media support and discussions...... but none so effective as the public school system.... and those of private institutions which must compete with certain guidelines for standardization in order for their students' accademics to be accepted in transfer to other schools.

    The theory of evolution is a religion of origin just as surely as any other.

    What I don't understand is why is it given any attention or time in education below college level? There is only one reason, imo ..... and that is to indoctrinate children and youth into doubts regarding their values and religious teachings regarding origins.

    I took a college course in comparative anatomy: even it did not require a knowledge of evolution to understand the facts and comparisons I was learning related to health sciences. It is at the level of College Botany and Zoology that Divisions in the Animal Kingdom and Plant Kingdom become a tool which is helpful in identifying and naming and understanding certain similarities and differences between the species. Even then, a knowledge or belief in evolution is not necessary. I therefore believe all teaching regarding the theory would best be kept in the area of advanced investigations on the graduate level and as a specialty instead of prerequisite knowledge to the understanding of fundamentals .......the latter which has far more practicality and relevance to daily life and careers and even most scientific professions.
