(Posted 06/16/09 www.RemnantNewspaper.com) At a scientific convention in Chicago in 1980, over 150 of the world’s leading evolution experts faced the facts of the fossil record and virtually pronounced the death of Darwinism.
They admitted that after 120 years of digging, the fossil record showed that there are no fossil links between one species and another, i.e., there are no transitional fossils. Thus, it was acknowledged that there is indeed a genetic barrier between species which renders impossible the theory that mankind evolved from apes.
These findings should have buried evolutionism forever as a serious scientific concept. Yet, the opposite has happened. Staggering numbers worldwide have continued to embrace evolution’s false doctrines in preference to scriptural and other evidence relating to man’s true origin.
Writing in Nature, vol.123, evolutionist D.M.S Watson offers a typically atheistic, yet revealing, explanation for this phenomenon: “The theory of evolution”, he says, “is universally accepted not because it can be proven true but because the alternative, special creation, is clearly incredible.”
There we have it! Evolutionism is not science versus religion but religion versus religion. It is the religion of those who oppose God, even if that opposition contradicts all that human reason and the laws of nature dictate.
Consider, for example, the ‘big bang’ aspect of the evolutionary hypothesis. This is the theory that all life began with a super explosion.
Here is what it proposes: In a cold, super-dense state of matter/energy an explosion occurred, the outrushing material from which formed into hydrogen and some helium. Then after billions of years (!) those outrushing gasses formed themselves into stars, galaxies and planets, and plants, animals and man.
This is clearly impossible, for according to established scientific fact, more precisely the 2nd law of Thermodynamics, which all scientists hold as true, natural processes always tend toward degeneration; and the simple will never produce the more complex.
In other words, science has established beyond doubt that there is a tendency in nature to proceed toward a state of greater molecular disorder, and not to a level of ordered perfection. So, according to this irrefutable law of Thermodynamics, the process of change (or mutation) in nature goes from order to disorder and from the more perfect to the less perfect.
According to this law, therefore, scientists must say that everything in the universe is running down, e.g., the sun eventually will burn out; uranium decays; people grow old and die; all natural systems are degenerating from order to disorder, etc.
But evolutionism requires the opposite! It requires the universe to run uphill, i.e., to go contrary to the laws of nature. It requires random molecules to have assembled themselves into organized and increasingly complex systems, from which the order and beauty we see in the universe today has miraculously developed.
Frankly, it is amazing how any rational creature could fall for such an explanation in opposition to established scientific evidence, not to mention the examples of utter destruction that followed the atomic ‘big bangs’ in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
As for the production of life from such chaos, how is it possible for life to come from non-life? How can lifeless matter, i.e., the less perfect, evolve into life, i.e., the more perfect? And how is it possible, following this same principle, for vegetative life (plants) to evolve into sensitive life (animals) and then to intellective live (humans)? The whole theory is ludicrous.
Regarding this latter stage of so-called development, e.g., animal to human, the science of Genetics has a little bit to say on the subject.
In his book, Evolution?, J.W.G. Johnson explains that the science of genetics has revealed that microscopic genes in the living cell control the variations of individuals within the species (or kind). In other words, the genes of a certain animal carry the “blueprint” which determines the appearance and character of that certain animal.
This “genetic blueprint” allows great variety within a species, but no further. There is a genetic barrier which prevents change beyond that. This barrier confronts every animal and plant breeder. There is always a limit beyond which no further improvement of the line can be obtained.
This means that the “genetic blueprint” of a living being does not allow it to evolve into a different being (as evolution dreams). Hence the absence of transitional fossils.
Given this unquestionable scientific refutation of the ridiculous theory of evolution, why, as reported in London’s The Catholic Herald of October 12, 2007, would the 47-nation Council for Europe’s Parliamentary Assembly vote against giving “Creationism” an equal footing with evolutionism in schools, calling Creationism “dangerous”?
Pope Pius XII in his 1950 Encyclical, Humani Generis, gives us the answer:
A glance at the world outside the Christian fold will familiarise us, easily enough, with the false directions which the thought of the learned often takes. Some will contend that the theory of evolution, as it is called, applies to the origin of all things whatsoever. Accepting it without caution, without reservation, they boldly give rise to monistic or pantheistic speculations which represent the whole universe as left at the mercy of a continual process of evolution. Such speculations are eagerly welcomed by the Communists, who find in them a powerful weapon for defending and popularising their system of dialectical materialism; the whole idea of God is thus to be eradicated from men’s minds…These false evolutionary notions, with their denial of all that is fixed or absolute, or abiding in human experience, have paved the way for a new philosophy of error.
And what is this “philosophy of error” today? It is Socialist Democracy with its exaggerated human rights, in the name of which traditional family life has been eliminated and individuals given leave to usurp God as the supreme legislator of what is morally right and wrong.
When Our Lady told sister Lucy of Fatima that Russia would spread her errors throughout the world we may be fairly certain that evolutionism, as the foundation upon which modern democracy operates, formed an integral part of Her prophecy, for it was the founding father of Russian Communism himself, Karl Marx, who first took up this anti-Gospel and ensured its spread around the globe.
The decision to dedicate his book ‘Das Kapital’ to Charles Darwin was no idle gesture by Marx, but rather a declaration of war on Christ Our Lord. For as one Marxist commentator puts it:
Natural science became a weapon in the opposition to belief and tradition; science and the newly discovered natural laws were put forward. It was with these weapons that the bourgeoisie fought. …Darwin’s theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma.
In the interests of clarity, it must be stated here that Marx was not the only conspirator against God and the established order to use Darwin’s theory for his own ends. It was also the primary doctrine of Nazism.
In his ‘Mein Kampf’, Adolf Hitler clearly expressed his belief in the evolutionary process. From this was born the Nazi Aryan myth and a programme of racial cleansing that began with the Nuremberg Laws of 1934 and ended with the mass murder of Jews, Gypsies, alcoholics, the mentally and physically disabled, etc.
Nevertheless, it is to the Marxist system that a greater and more sustained programme of mass murder must be attributed, since it is through the adoption of its Godless evolutionary principles, primarily that of “survival of the fittest”, that today’s world has been turned into one gigantic killing machine, or “culture of death” as Pope John Paul II termed it.
Disguising mass murder behind the sanitised tag of “eugenics”, by 1934 Leon Trotsky felt confident enough to make the following statement in a published essay on the Sovietisation of America:
While the romantic numskulls of Nazi Germany are dreaming of restoring the old race of Europe’s Dark Forrest to its original purity, or rather its original filth, you Americans, after taking a firm grip on your economic machinery and your culture, will apply genuine scientific methods to the problem of eugenics. Within a century, out of your melting pot of races there will come a new breed of men – the first worthy of the name Man.
Not only had America produced this “new breed” by the 1960s, but so too had Europe and the rest of the world; beings UNworthy of the name Man, who apply scientific methods to the problem of eugenics in the form of abortion and so many other unethical and immoral embryonic practices.
When people speak of the evils of Communism, they generally refer to such horror statistics as the conservatively-estimated 20 million murdered in the Soviet Union under Stalin, or the countless millions who perished in the Communist inspired wars in the Ukraine, Vietnam, Korea, Spain, Chile, the African nations, etc. Few, however, are aware of Communism’s link with abortion.
Just as today’s processes of euthanasia, cloning, embryonic stem cell harvesting and genetic manipulation have their foundation in Marxist/Nazi eugenics, which in turn are rooted in the evolutionary principle of ‘survival of the fittest’, so State-sponsored abortion in today’s Socialist Democracies has its origin in Cold War Russia, wherein the average Soviet housewife had six in her lifetime. This appalling evil was also in vogue in Communist China long before it swept across the world.
It is hard to believe that any civilized society could sink into such clinical barbarism. Yet, when God and the immortal soul are denied in favour of a theory of short-term existence in a continuum of evolutionary accidents, a culture of self-indulgence and self-gratification, in effect self-deification, becomes quite unavoidable.
Like it or not, America and Europe are now firmly entrenched in this Communist-inspired view of life and death. Our Lady’s prophecy has come to pass. Russia has spread her errors throughout the world and the universal apostasy from God of the once-Christian nations is now almost complete.
In the very near future, then, we can expect the full wrath of the new regime to fall on all who preach Christianity, whether in the form of a public declaration of God as Creator, in defence of the sanctity of life or in the condemnation of unnatural vice. Human Rights, under which title the most appalling crimes are being perpetrated against God and humanity, will paradoxically be used to eradicate opposition to the new atheistic system.
Surely we can already sense the influence of anti-Christ in this developing horror, such as in this latest decision to ban the Biblical truth of Genesis from our children’s education? Surely we can sense him in this manufactured global financial crisis, in the disorder that exists in our communities, in increasing outbursts of violence around the world, in the glorification of immoral lifestyles, in the religious indifference of our politicians and in the deepening crisis in the universal Church?
Regarding this latter manifestation, the crisis in the Church, it is possible, nay it is probable, that the principles of evolution were re-adapted and applied to Christianity as a theory of evolving religious consciousness against the long-established doctrines and Liturgical practices of the Holy Catholic religion after Vatican Council II?
Something went seriously wrong and it is not difficult to see in the Post-Concilliar belief system those evolutionary principles of constant metamorphosis that have led invariably to a universal corruption and loss of the Faith.
What is ecumenism, for example, if not a subtle replacing of the dogma “outside the Church no salvation” with an evolutionary view of all religions as intrinsically salvific, albeit at differing stages of development?
Was this what the Holy Mother of God was warning us about when, in the now-silenced text of the Third Secret of Fatima, She declared: “In Portugal the dogmas of the Faith will always be preserved, etc.”, as if to say that elsewhere the dogmas would not be preserved.
The 91st anniversary of the great miracle of the sun at Fatima passed last year on October 13th without any sign that the Holy Father and his Bishops are considering making the public and solemn Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary as Our Lady requested all those years ago.
While there have been Consecration services carried out by Popes, particularly Pius XII and John Paul II, these have not specifically mentioned Russia and have not included the participation of the world’s bishops in accordance with Our Lady’s instructions.
As long as this intransigence to Heaven’s warnings and requests continues at the highest levels in the Church, we need not expect events to take a turn for the better.
Our Lady said that if the Holy Father and his bishops made a public and solemn consecration of Russia in accordance with Her request, then Russia would be converted and the world would be given a time of peace. But She cautioned that failure to do so in the manner laid out would result in Russia spreading her errors throughout the world, fomenting wars and persecutions of the Church, there would be much suffering for the Holy Father, the martyrdom of the good and the annihilation of many nations.
Who can fail to recognize in this possibility of the “annihilation of nations” the growing wealth and military menace of Russia and China.
Vladimir Putin makes no secret of his Cold War-type hostility towards the US and Europe. Indeed, his military machine has already carried out mock attacks on the US and he deals with such rogue States as Iran and North Korea.
For its part, China is already renowned for its persecution of Catholics loyal to Rome, a fact that is strangely overlooked by our apparently anti-Communist Western press. It, too, has been arming itself to the teeth in recent years.
If “survival of the fittest” is put to the test in this particular arena of global military conflict, which I believe is inevitable as things stand, then we had better be very worried indeed.
Our Lady said at Fatima that war is a punishment for sin. Our Lord also said to Sister Lucy that the world is now more sinful than before the Flood. What, then, can we expect from heaven unless there be a radical rethink by Christians, a radical turning to God and an immediate turning to the Blessed Virgin Mother who has already promised us the victory when Her conditions ARE finally met. “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, but it will be late.”
