Rushdoony Socks It to Darwin

Charles Darwin–would he be appalled by what his ideas gave birth do?

We all know this Bible verse, don’t we? “And we know that all things work together for good to those that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28)

In his Politics of Guilt and Pity (1970; 1995 edition, pg. 104), R.J. Rushdoony shocks us with this quote from Charles Darwin. The parallel between this and Romans 8:28 should make your hair stand on end:

“And as natural selection works solely by and for the good of each being, all corporeal and mental endowments will tend to progress towards perfection.”

In those very few words, the reprobate mind of Charles Darwin sets up an idol, “natural selection,” to do what God does and to replace Him! And what the heck, we “higher animals,” human beings, don’t have to believe or do a single thing! It’s all done for us, not by God’s sovereign grace, but by blind natural processes.

Is it any wonder how Darwin’s work opened the door for the horrors of the 20th century and our own–opened it to communism? And all that that entails, complete with the mass murder of tens of millions of communist countries’ own people.

Darwin, you were a wicked and foolish man and your ideas deserve to be tossed out with the trash.

  1. These goofy ideas always remind me of the little story about a bunch of scientists saying “we don’t need any god, we just made a human being on our own, out of dirt. God said to them, ok, let’s see your production. and they began gathering dirt and stuff until God said, oh no, get your own dirt.

  2. The Theory of Evolution is based on a longtime creation. But even with their tens of millions of years their precious Natural Selection is performing millions and millions of miracles. How can any thinking person buy into this crap?
