What's very surprising for people is that the first account of evolution didn't come in the middle of the 1800s with Darwin. A man named Lucretius, a Roman, wrote about 50 years before the birth of Christ a book called De Rerum Natura (On the Nature of Things). And in it you find this really long evolutionary passage. And you say, "How could this get here? I thought Darwin invented this or discovered this." And he really didn't. It's simply a deduction from materialism itself. If you don't have a God, and you think that matter just bangs around forever and eventually creates things, that view isn't at all modern. It's very ancient. Darwin just picked up on it. ...People don't read Charles Darwin's Descent of Man, where he himself draws out all the implications of his view of nature. No Christian can accept those. He's a very outspoken advocate of eugenics. And wouldn't he be? Farmers improve their livestock by better breeding. Darwin said, Why do we take care of our livestock so well, but don't take care of our own breeding so well? ....First of all, note that Darwinism is not something that was discovered. It's not a scientific discovery. And the sign of this is that it was 2,000 years old before it could have ever had any scientific vindication of it. It's a philosophical account. And that means it's an account of nature that filters out evidence that would contradict it. This is part of the beginning, middle and end of an interview in Christianity Today. http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2003/126/23.0.html He brings up points that are often forgotten or disputed so loudly by evolutionists that their very noise about it should give folks a clue. 1. There is an inevitable (lack of) morality tied to evolution. 2. Evolution blithely ignores what does not support it. 3. Evolution is the inevitable result of materialism. 4. Evolution is ancient and the reality of this philosophy in human affairs has nothing to do with Darwin, Erasmus or Charles, except by way of repopularizing it and trying to put a 'scientific' veneer on it. 5. Evolution is, start to finish, foundation to results, a direct rebellion against God and His Word.
