Hey, i thought maybe you'd like me to post a little excerpt from the book (well not you two, but maybe some others who might be reading this
"Darwin never describes how Something came to be. But it is now popular, even required to believe in this illogic of nothing sponsoring it. When
something as miraculous and infinitely complex as the universe (in its inescapably lawful nature) is described as coming from an accident – one just
This was a first. That one man could audaciously claim against the lead of all amazing minds of history – whose shoulders he stood on that
Nothingness (in a dumb explosion of miraculous Lawful detail) could be the reason All things exist – was a height of intellectual egotistic-hubris.
Sometimes certain ones desire to be an iconoclast-’truth giver’ or just the ‘first one’ to say something. What we find, as with any new Idea,
Fad, Religion, Philosophy or Discipline is, the followers make it into a ‘sacred’ sacrosanct object, or into a zealous ‘belonging’.
I absorbed Darwin’s self proclaimed theory and its principles, anecdotal indicators its ideation and its supposed “certainty” because the public
school system in America and many others now teach the theory as a FACT. But near the end of his life Darwin offered up a fearful unease that what he
wrote could create a debilitating effect.
He never got to see its full flowered worldwide acceptance and dogmatically pressured promulgation. It’s truly pressured now almost everywhere. Many
are fired from institutions of higher learning for not believing it, Or in pointing to ideas such as intelligent design (ID) in their class rooms.
(See the movie: "Expelled").
I had no solid reason to question evolution at my young age in school. I even have friends who now believe in a deific- evolutionary belief system –
God uses evolution they think. Then as with most ideas one hears divergent views spoken in various group-settings, regarding its merits, its
foundations or logic.
Whether it’s politics, religion or scientific theories we always eventually come to understand there’re differing views out there
and they appear to come from very astute reasonable even well educated individuals. Then we say inside Oh this is interesting – and we may ponder:
How may I contribute here? Then we discover the world is full of other views, not just one dogmatic idea. And we expand our minds.
But I have one cognition that truly amuses me. When we look at the world of science or any discipline be it religion, the arts, poetry, athletics,
history, pursuits in and of knowledge even Beauty (as in it’s in the eye of the beholder) there are always EXPERTS on two or more sides. Wait, I
thought they were experts. How can they be on opposite sides? How can he be right if she is right, really? Where did the expert status go?
See, people are just people, and their social underpinnings are more important than their degrees held. Capitalists will never love socialism –
Socialists always distrust capitalists and everyone hates fascism, tyranny and dictators, (not the rulership parties of course) – but the people
hate them. Darwinists fall on the side of ‘forcing’ people into their beliefs, which is not good. Too much like tyranny."
