Friedrich Engels, Karl Marx’s co-author and co-founder of communism
I have an ongoing discussion with a Christian friend and brother who clings to Science and considers Darwin’s Theory of Evolution as a demonstrated fact–although who demonstrated it, or how, is more than I know.
I go by the principle of “by their fruits you shall know them.” Darwinism has bitter fruit. It assisted at the birth of communism.
Said Engels, after reading The Origin of the Species, “Darwin… is absolutely splendid. There was one aspect of teleology that has yet to be demolished, and that has been done.”
Amplifies International Socialist Review, “The essential connection between historical materialism and natural selection” was established by Darwin.
Is the world a better place because of Darwinist dogma?
If you can answer “yes,” we are surely talking about two different planets.
