‘The Power of Evolutionary History
One need not look far to see the consequences of Darwin’s new history of the universe. Although there are countless ways evolutionary history transformed the world, here are three that push historical logic to its natural conclusions:
- Eugenics – The eugenics movement officially began with the work of Charles Darwin’s younger cousin, Francis Galton. Galton understood that if the evolutionary history of the world were true, then those groups that have the most offspring eventually take over a society. Since ‘inferior’ races such as africans, hispanics, and unfit whites had more children than the ‘superior’ white European race, the State should use birth control, sterilization, and abortion to limit the growth of these groups. Galton said, “what Nature does blindly, slowly, and ruthlessly, man may do providently, quickly, and kindly.” Some kindness. The eugenics movement spread like a virus through Europe and the United States, influencing Margaret Sanger to found Planned Parenthood in 1916 and the US Congress to pass forced sterilization laws that sterilized tens of thousands of US citizens up through the 1950’s. Even today, the eugenics movement can be seen in the worldwide abortion industry as it engineers the deaths of tens millions of children every year.
- National Socialism – In the late nineteenth century, evolutionary thinking took hold in Germany through the work of Ernest Haeckel. Edward Larson writes in Evolution that Haeckel “provided scientific support for the particularly virulent racism that infected some strains of German thought during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, culminating in Nazi race theory.” Hitler confirmed this himself in Mein Kampf, writing, “But little as Nature wishes a mating of weaker with stronger individuals, still less does she want the fusion of a higher with a lower race, since otherwise the whole labor of selective evolution…would be set at naught.” After all, if Nature had wiped out millions of lesser races in the past, why should the Nazis not do it in the present?
- Marxist Communism – When Karl Marx first read Origin of Species, he wrote to fellow communist Friedrich Engels saying this was “the book which, in the field of natural history, provides the basis for our view.” After all, if man is not made in God’s image and does not have an eternal soul, then what does it matter if the State kills hundreds, or thousands, or millions of its own people as it seeks to realize the aims of communism? It is no coincidence that Lenin, Stalin, and Mao also happen to be the greatest mass murderers in history with over a hundred million deaths attributed to them.
These are just a few examples of what happened when people assumed the evolutionary history of the world was true. Such an assumption has led to the loss of faith of tens of millions of people, the destruction of hundreds of millions of lives, and the moral sickness of entire cultures. This assumption stands behind the current confusion in sexuality, with homosexuality seen by those who adopt evolutionary history as a natural result of sexual selection over millions of years.
What one thinks happened in the past is powerful indeed.’ https://isgenesishistory.com/power-of-alternate-histories-of-universe/?utm_source=Is+Genesis+History%3F&utm_campaign=cd03328832-AUTOMATION_Email_subscribers_when_they_re_tagged_2&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_052697a034-cd03328832-150261953&mc_cid=cd03328832&mc_eid=2abe4a38b0
