The Darwin cult and nature worship
Evolution is promoted by its practitioners as more than mere science. Evolution is promulgated as an ideology, a secular religion — a full-fledged alternative to Christianity, with meaning and morality. I am an ardent evolutionist and an ex-Christian, but I must admit that in this one complaint — and Mr. Gish is but one of many to make it — the literalists are absolutely right. Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today.
Religion is about the meaning and origin of life and the universe. Evolutionists try to explain the origin of life and the universe and even dare give meaning to it while science cannot possible give meaning to anything. The gods of evolution are Mother Nature and Father Time and, respectively, evolution theory is based on the unprovable philosophies naturalism and uniformitarianism. The prophet of evolution is Charles Darwin. The bible of evolution is On the Origin of Species. The Christmas of evolution is Darwin Day on which evolutionists hail their prophet. Their prophet is presented to the world as thegreatest biologistwhile in reality he merely observed microevolution and presented a speculative theory about unobservable macroevolution based on metaphysics. Major dogmas of evolution are macroevolution and common ancestry. Not surprisingly, Gustave Le Bon wrote thatWere it possible to induce the masses to adopt atheism, this belief would exhibit all the intolerant ardour of a religious sentiment, and in its exterior forms would soon become a cult.Hence the Darwin cult.
History of evolution
The Hindus were Spinozas 2,000 years before the birth of Spinoza, Darwinians centuries before the birth of Darwin, and evolutionists many centuries before the doctrine of evolution had been accepted by the Huxleys of our time, and before any word like 'evolution' existed in any language of the world.
Evolutionary thought has roots in antiquity. The worship of forces of nature as providers of sustenance date back to at least 4th millennium BC Mesopotamia. The typical apeman myth is at least as old as fantastic hindu mythology. Evolution's purposelessness was already preached with Samsara. Aristotle already classified all living organisms hierarchically in his great scala naturae in the 4th century BC. Iraqi zoologist by the name of al-Jahith developed a rudimentary theory of natural selection a thousand years before Darwin. Old beliefs die hard.
Tempels of evolution
The Natural History Museum, sometimes dubbed acathedral of nature, is one of the many temples around the world where evolutionists can go admire their prophet Darwin and practice their faith in the religion of evolution. They all repeat the same evolutionary gospel with its many metaphysical just-so stories. Together with the many schools and universities sponsored and controlled by mainstream science they brainwash countless people around the world to believe that the scientifically impossible is somehow supported by science with a little help from their mindless gods called Father Time and Mother Nature.
At both ends of the foyer, bronze grilles are decorated with Lawrie's interpretations of the signs of the zodiac; each grille depicts six signs arranged in two columns of three, with each horizontal pair framed by two pairs of winged lions facing one another in profile. The appearance of the signs of the zodiac may seem curious in a building dedicated to science. The zodiac has its origin in Babylonian star catalogues where it functioned as a celestial coordinate system. The constellations represented in the zodiac were given special status by the Babylonians because of their position along the ecliptic — the apparent path of the sun over the course of a year — divided into twelve equal sections with the position of the sun at vernal equinox as the origin. In the Academy building depictions of the zodiac and other ancient images symbolize human observations of nature in ancient times and the progress of science from its beginnings to the modern era.
The statement that these ancient depictions symbolize human observations of nature is simply absurd. Never have winged lion fossils been found. These winged lions are Babylonian religious symbols and they represent the mythological goddess Ishtar. Babylon is known to be the origin of practically all modern-day religion. The architects of the NAS building openly admit that science itself has its origins in ancient religion. Science is based on assumptions and axioms which have to be taken by faith. Today it is fully based on the unprovable philosophy naturalism which of course is connected to nature worship. The religious depictions of for example the sun and the zodiac, which points to star worship, merely confirm it. The earth symbol used in the NAS building is the same as the cross symbol of Christianity which is a symbol of sun worship. Etcetera, etcetera.
The Great Hall is cruciform in floor plan and is vaulted, with its dome rising to a height of 56 feet at its apex. The dome and its supporting elements are decorated with images, symbols and inscriptions that illustrate the history of science and of the scientific societies that predated the National Academy of Sciences. ... At the center of the dome is a stylized sun ringed by a circular band containing the astronomical symbols representing the eight planets known in 1924. Between the sun and the ring of planets is the inscription, "Ages and cycles of nature in ceaseless sequence moving,"
The NAS calls the NAS building aTemple of Science. It has a website called "NAS Great Hall" * which offers a gallery of mythological figures used as decoration. The symbolism of the sun inside the pagan Roman dome and the cruciform points to sun worship again.
There is also a depiction of Prometheus in the hall * who isaided by Athena, stealing the divine fire from the chariot of Helios, the sun god, to bring humankind the flame of knowledge.In Greek mythology, Prometheus is aTitan god of fire who is credited with the creation of humanity from clay, and of defying the gods by stealing fire and giving it to humanity as civilization. Even the swastika is used in the NAS Great Hall in the AIR symbolism *.
The inscription on the ceiling in the dome saysTo science, pilot of industry, conqueror of disease, multiplier of the harvest, explorer of the universe, revealer of nature's laws, eternal guide to truth* All religions say they are the "eternal guides to truth". Despite the fact that the people in control of these kind of organizations claim to practice science they reside in buildings with symbolism which shows a striking similarity to that found in other religions. The building is literally drenched in mythological and religious stuff.
The Smithsonian Institution uses the same sun logo as the Catholic Jesuits (see for example the logo of the Society of Jesus in Canada and the United States). What a "coincidence". This sun logo with 16 rays is a so-called "Vergina Sun" used in Greek mythology by for example the Greek sun god Helios. In a Smithsonian Magazine article called "One Under the Sun" we readA logo is a powerful symbol. It immediately defines an association between a product and its corporation.* The phrase "One Under the Sun" of course points strongly to sun worship. The Smithsonian "Badge of Office" contains an owl. Smithsonian explains the owl as follows:Cast in high relief and set within a deeply recessed square on the front is the owl of Athena, a symbol of wisdom* Owls are commonly associated withwisdom, knowledge, and contemplation. They have been seen as a symbol of the spirit world because they carry messages from it to ours.The Smithsonian Institution’s mission * as defined in James Smithson’s will is:For the Increase and Diffusion of Knowledge Among Men.* Of course all this can never be silly "coincidence". It's all related to power. Knowledge is power and if you don't control your own mind, then someone else will. This is hardcore religion meant to deceive and control the masses, all "One Under the Sun".
Preachers of evolution
Fanatic atheist and evolutionist Richard Dawkins once said:I enormously admire Darwin. He’s the founder of really everything that I do.The so-called new atheists are fanatic preachers of evolution who make fantastic statements. They slant silly rubbish likephilosophy is deaddespite the fact that evolution is based on the unprovable philosophy naturalism and is completely drenched in metaphysics. Famous atheist Sam Harris wrote a book titled "The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason". But atheism itself has to be taken by faith. Popular atheist Lawrence Krauss wrote a book titled "A Universe from Nothing: Why There Is Something Rather than Nothing". But questions involving the origin of life or the universe are philosophical questions, not scientific ones. Ironically, in one of their typical propaganda movies called "The Unbelievers", full of the typical misrepresentations of other religions besides atheism, atheist Richard Dawkins says thatthe question "why" is not necessarily a question that deserves to be answeredand calls ita silly question. So he promotes people to stop asking the big questions of life. The reason is obvious, the big questions of life are only answerable by means of philosophy, not by science. In another video called "Teaching Evolution to Religious Students" he saysNow it's absolutely certain that Darwin was right. And now we essentially understand why we're all here, what life is all about, what is the meaning of it all.So he claims to have the answers to the big questions of life, exactly like religion does. There is no end to their contradictions and self-refuting claims. Are they maybe blinded by their sun god? These people just don't make any sense, they are angry with all other religions, and angry people can't think straight. These proud and arrogant people and their books are hailed by ignorant atheists and evolutionists around the world and they're heavily promoted by the world of mainstream science and vice versa. Birds of a feather flock together.
According to Charles Darwin...
We have seen that man by selection can certainly produce great results, and can adapt organic beings to his own uses, through the accumulation of slight but useful variations, given to him by the hand of Nature. But Natural Selection, we shall hereafter see, is a power incessantly ready for action, and is as immeasurably superior to man's feeble efforts, as the works of Nature are to those of Art. ... Nature, if I may be allowed to personify the natural preservation or survival of the fittest, cares nothing for appearances, except in so far as they are useful to any being. She can act on every internal organ, on every shade of constitutional difference, on the whole machinery of life. Man selects only for his own good; Nature only for that of the being which she tends. Every selected character is fully exercised by her, as is implied by the fact of their selection.
Nature ... chooses her vocalists from more humble performers than in Europe. ... I do not think Nature ever made a more solitary, desolate pile of rock. ... I do not know of any other instance where dame Nature appears so wilfully cruel. ... Nature herself performs the task of bisection. ... The land is one great wild, untidy, luxuriant hothouse, made by Nature for herself. ... Both are temples filled with the varied productions of the God of Nature.
I had hoped for the credit of Dame Nature. ... What a book a devil's chaplain might write on the clumsy, wasteful, blundering, low, and horribly cruel works of nature! ... Natural Selection is a metaphorical expression of it, and to a certain degree indirect and incorrect, since, even personifying Nature, she does not so much select special variations as exterminate the most unfavourable ones.
Because mindless natural selection and nature are not creative powers evolutionists make use of anthropomorphism. It is the attribution of human traits, emotions, and intentions to non-human entities. Darwin even givesDame Naturemoral qualities. What evolutionists do with nature they also do with time. Mother Nature and Father Time are mythological figures originating from nature worship and ancient religions. These mythological figures are still prominent within the world of evolution where evolutionists use them as miracle workers whenever science and logic simply prove their silly and fanatic belief wrong.
