Change, Evolution, and America

what evolutionOne of the overarching themes of Darwinian Evolution is that all living organisms are “changing” from a  simpler organism to one of higher complexity. Evolutionary Biology posits that life began with just a single cell that “became alive” and has changed  into more and more complex life forms over long periods of time, even though it has no idea how the first cell came about.

Darwinian assumptions have become embedded in Western culture, so much so that the assumption that everything must “change” in order to improve is ever more evident in US national politics. The belief that “anything goes behind closed doors” because evolutionary biology has proven “God is a myth” is also painfully evident.

Barack Obama’s 2008 election using the slogan “Change” is evidence that many Americans accept the false premise that change is usually for the better. Obama even utilized the term evolution to justify his change of stance on Gay Marriage implying that his position had improved to one of more fairness.

The idea that “times are changing” has never been more true. With the constant barrage of Anti-Christian, Anti-God rhetoric from the media, the courts, celebrities, and academia, it’s no wonder that some Republicans are changing their position on social issues like gay marriage. The party that once held  the social values of born again Christians across this country are changing their tune to the beat of Gay Marriage drums.

Divorce, violent crime, drug and alcohol abuse have all increased since the 1950’s, and that kind of change is not for the better. The family, which is the foundation of any society, is quickly disintegrating. The degradation of the family began with taking prayer out of public schools and taking God out of the public square. This change has been reinforced by the notion that God is a myth, a by-product of the theory of evolution.

Our minds are engrained with the need for change. Unless a product is constantly new and improved, sales will plummet. Failure to ‘change’ formulas or marketing techniques leads to failure of the product or company.

“We must change with the times.” “ We must always keep up with the change in  ________ (fill in the blank).” “The one thing that is surely constant is that THINGS CHANGE.”

It is easy to get caught up in the change mindset. But, how many times have you downloaded the latest software version or upgrade only to discover that it’s not an improvement at all? How many times have you tried the latest and greatest product pictured on TV or the internet only to decide it was a gimmick and a rip off?

Not all change is in our best interest especially when it is imposed on us by elites who claim to know what is best for everyone.

My advice is to think long and hard about whether you really believe that Obama’s change is for the better. Will Obamacare actually be a good program for everyone—both young and old? Will imposing “gun registration requirements” (Universal background Checks) actually make us safer? Etc, etc.

(But, perhaps  even more consequential, think long and hard (think critically) about the scientific arguments for and against evolution before you whole-heartedly accept evolution as truth. Don’t just accept evolution because you believe so many well educated and well-versed PhD’s can’t be so dead wrong. For there is indeed evidence that there is change “within a species” for it to adapt to its environment (Darwin’s finch beaks), but there is no observation of this change extrapolating into new and different species.)

Indeed many things change, as they must. But, Christians and Jews believe that “God is the same yesterday, today, and forever”. And many conservatives believe that our country was founded by God fearing men and that God grants us our rights—not man (the government).

Change was indeed the order of the day during the founding of our country, changing from the rule of the king of England to self rule. But, this change put God in control of our destiny, and this change gave us a republic which could only be kept together by a religious people.

Evolutionary Biology has helped breed all types of godlessness, crime, addiction, lasciviousness, which has led America and the whole of Western Civilization down a selfish and lazy path to a Nanny state—a path of ever increasing socialism leading to communism.

The progressive agenda was changing America long before Obama’s policies were implemented. He has merely increased the momentum. Progress implies forward motion, but it can move us towards a very different goal than the average person may realize or believe possible in America.

Is America’s evolution/change towards a growth of government one that is oppressive or empowering to the individual?

As Dr. Carson said last week, let’s not accept everything imposed on us without question only to find ourselves later in a real predicament, shaking our heads, asking ourselves, “How did we get HERE?”

Pray for America and for the Peace of Jerusalem.


Breivik, McVeigh: Darwinian Terrorists

Last week, the world’s worst “terrorist” act potentially accomplished by a single man shocked the world, especially when it was discovered that the attacker was tall, blonde, and Nordic.

The attacker, Anders Behring Breivik, started his murders in Oslo, Norway, with a bomb that had the markings of the Oklahoma City style bombing, killing seven people. Then Breivik began a shooting spree at a children’s summer camp at Utoya, killing 86 more innocent people.

At the breaking news of the bombing in Oslo it was first assumed by most that the attack was a highly coordinated Islamist terror effort.

Just as expectedly, upon the discovery that the killer was a tall, blonde white man, the alarm was sounded that a Christian fundamentalist was responsible for the attack:

“… Norwegian nationalbroadcaster NRK says he is 32-year-old Anders Behring Breivik. Authorities have not identified a motive but have said he visited Christian fundamentalistwebsites and once belonged to the youth-wing of a rightist party”.

However, upon researching Breivik’s manifesto, many were “quietly” shocked –the killer was a man of “reason”, a believer that “Darwinian” principles should rule over Christian fundamentalism. He thought that it was only “weak people” who needed God for “comfort”, and expressed that a personal relationship with God was (so far) unnecessary in his life:“…As for the Church and science, it is essential that science takes an undisputed precedence over biblical teachings. Europe has always been the cradle of science, and it must always continue to be that way. Regarding my personal relationship with God, I guess I’m not an excessively religious man. I am first and foremost a man of logic. However, I am a supporter of a monocultural Christian Europe…”“‘…Logic’ and rationalist thought (a certain degree of national Darwinism) should be the fundament [sic] of our societies. I support the propagation of collective rational thought but not necessarily on a personal level….”

Our experiential view of Islamic jihadists as the statistical leaders in terrorist attacks around the world led many to the first mistaken conclusion. The second prejudice, however, was an expression of disdain for Christians, perhaps for God Himself.

A good example of this disdain is the continuing claim by the Left that the famed Oklahoma City Bomber, Timothy McVeigh, was a Christian fundamentalist. However, McVeigh often said to his friends, “Science is my religion”.

Both McVeigh and Breivik may (or may not) have claimed to hold to a Christian view, but they ultimately embraced Darwinism over Christianity.Christianity and Darwinism are conflicting worldviews; the former embraces the Deity, while the latter professes devout atheism.In that light, I wonder which worldview most likely led Breivik and McVeigh to think it was a good thing to kill people…

Camping In The Great Outdoors

inside my tentAh, there’s nothing quite like camping. Back to the basics, the woods, the trails and all the other exciting adventures that go along with camping.

Unfortunately last time I went, I forgot my leatherman. It was the most horrible camping trip I think I’ve ever been on. I wanted to go fishing and needed to change some of my fishing line.

Normally, I use my leatherman for this task however, that wasn’t possible, why not? Because I forgot it lying on the table when I was packing.

That was the biggest mistake I could have made. I actually drove back home to get it. Whew, thankfully I wasn’t too far from home when I remembered.

Now I could go fishing. I gathered up my pole and my leatherman and I was able to successfully switch out the line with one tool. I could use the pliers to hold the line and the cutting part to snip it off where I needed to snip it. It was perfect.

When I caught the fish I could hold the fish in one hand and remove the hook with my plier part of the leatherman. I am so grateful that I remembered it before I got too far from home.

I think that my leatherman is the most important tool I could ever own. I use it when I am camping to hold things, to snip wires and fishing line, to fix fishing line and to do a multitude of tasks in and around the campground where I choose to camp.

geatest toolMany people think I’m kind of a nut for choosing my leatherman as my main tool to take with me camping, however, I find that it has so many tools in one that I don’t have to bring my entire tool box.

With the screwdrivers and pliers, I can do most any task. I can cut things and pull things and it’s like having a dozen tools in one.

I even used it to fix the terminals on my car when it wouldn’t start. It is amazing that people own entire tool boxes full of tools and no leatherman.

I take mine camping, hunting, fishing and hiking. There are so many great uses out there for a leatherman that I can’t imagine not having one. In fact, I have several.

I bought one for each of my kids and I use mine almost daily especially when I am camping. It helps me when I am changing out the mantels on my lanterns. It helps me to pick up small items and tie my fishing lures on my line.

A leatherman is a must in anyone’s camping equipment. I don’t think I could go camping without mine. My brother didn’t use one until he saw me with mine, now, he takes his everywhere as well.

It’s amazing how one simple tool can do so many tasks. I am so glad that I got to know a leatherman tool and have several.
