With every new sunrise, we witness the world plunging deeper and deeper into chaos. Mankind seems to be taking the final steps off the edge and further away from sanity. The Democrat party, having once removed the word God from their party platform has exposed itself for what they really are, pure evil. The party that claims to be looking out for the oppressed and vulnerable has revealed it's true agenda, death. They have shown the world that they have no concern for the most vulnerable amongst us and that life, in their minds, has no value beyond their own definition. They are arguing that a pregnant mother should have the right to kill her baby right up to the point of birth and in some cases, even afterward. How did we get to this point?
For years, our higher education system has been in the grips of those who do not believe in God. Our universities used to exist for the single purpose of teaching students how to find and pursue truth. Since the advent of Darwinian evolution and Pavlovian conditioning, however, education has moved into the realm of the scientific, disregarding Gods word in this search and leaning on man's understanding instead. Once man discovered that behavior can be trained, shaped and manipulated to serve his own ends, life lost value as it was no longer believed that men had wills of their own.
B.F. Skinner once described the study of human behavior as being either pre-scientific or scientific. Pre-scientific meaning from the perspective that man was in some way able to control his behavior and scientific, after the acceptance of Darwin's theories of evolution.
"In what we may call the pre-scientific view (and the word is not necessarily pejorative) a person's behavior is at least to some extent his own achievement. He is free to deliberate, decide, and act, possibly in original ways, and he is to be given credit for his successes and blamed for his failures. In the scientific view (and the word is not necessarily honorific) a person’s behavior is determined by a genetic endowment traceable to the evolutionary history of the species and by the environmental circumstances to which as an individual he has been exposed. Neither view can be proved, but it is in the nature of scientific inquiry that the evidence should shift in favor of the second. As we learn more about the effects of the environment, we have less reason to attribute any part of human behavior to an autonomous controlling agent. And the second view shows a marked advantage when we begin to do something about behavior. Autonomous man is not easily changed: in fact, to the extent that he is autonomous, he is by definition not changeable at all. But the environment can be changed, and we are learning how to change it. The measures we use are those of physical and biological technology, but we use them in special ways to affect behavior." (Skinner, 1971)
In the above statement, Skinner says that the study of human behavior should be conducted from the "scientific view" as opposed to the pre-scientific view. Looking at man through this lens has lessoned the value of human life. We have become, in the minds of scientists and behaviorists, no different than the animals Darwin claimed we are. We are not in control of our thoughts, actions and behaviors, they are controlled by the "evolutionary history of our species and the environmental circumstances to which an individual has been exposed." (Skinner, 1971)
Darwinian evolution is a central theme in Marxist Communism. Marx needed a scientific view which justified his war against God and Darwin's theory of evolution, which claimed that humans had no divine connection or will of their own was used as that justification.
Marx was at one time a devout Christian. He later became angry and turned against God. Many argue he was an atheist however, the book Marx and Satan by Richard Wurmbrand suggests that Marx developed Communism as a means of destroying God's creation. It is difficult to deny that Communism attacks the very nature of man and turns him into nothing more than a product of our behavior. Marx argued that class struggle was a natural part of evolution or dialectical materialism. The bourgeoise, the oppressor or "thesis" would naturally be overthrown by the proletariat or the anti-thesis, resulting in evolutionary progress of the species. Marx, according to Wurmbrand, reduced man's behavior to being motivated by economics alone. Love, along with other human emotions, was reduced to nothing more than a necessity to achieve economic success.
It can be argued that the Theory of Evolution, combined with Marx's ideas, are responsible for the atrocities the world witnessed in the twentieth century. When the value of human life is reduced to nothing more than an accident or process or evolution, eliminating undesirables that stand in the way of other's grandiose ideas is easy. Communists killed an estimated 80-100 million people, according to The Black Book of Communism, because they were viewed as being in the way of progress, or creating a better world.
All of this has brought us to the point where human beings are now viewed as a scourge to the planet and the young have been indoctrinated into this thinking. It is now considered moral to kill a baby right up to birth.
If things are to change in this nation Darwinian evolution must be rejected as the main basis for scientific inquiry. It appears we may be on that path. According to an article at WND.com, one thousand scientists from around the world are rejecting the main premise behind Darwin's theory claiming that there is no way it accounts for all the complexities of life. How could a Godless theory explain the complexities in a world created by God? Hopefully, more scientists will follow and our nation can return to a state of sanity.
