Evolution – Scientific Deception
Revelation 18 says that all nations will be deceived in the last days. Have you ever wondered how so many people could become so deceived? Look no further than the theory of evolution; Satan’s master plan of deception started at the time of his fall, and he will carry out this plan through the end time.
Jeffrey Dahmer Believed Evolution
In recent centuries, the humanists have been one of the main catalysts for this plan of deception. Satan has been patiently swaying men to turn away from the truth.
One of the greatest lies Satan has perpetrated is the false science of Darwinian evolution. Centuries of work by the great deceiver have been successful. Most people have accepted the Theory of Evolution as truth and now consider the Word of God to be a collection of stories or fables. Even more frightening is the fact that this philosophy has infiltrated the church. Many are unaware that they have succumbed to the devil’s destructive ploy.
In 1994, the notorious killer, Jeffrey Dahmer said on national television, “If there is no God to be accountable to, then what’s the point of trying to modify your behavior to keep it within acceptable ranges? I always believed the theory of evolution as truth.”
How can a person come to accept this belief system? If there is no God, if evolution is real, if we are here strictly by accident, if “survival of the fittest” has determined the survival of living things all along, then why should a person modify his behavior? However, if there is a Creator God and if we are accountable to Him…
So let’s ask the question again: Does what we believe about creation matter?
Social Consequences of Evolution
At its very roots, Darwinism justifies racism.
A pastor in Ontario once told me that he was in Hitler’s S.S. Army Officer Training School. The first thing they were taught was evolution. All of Nazism was built on evolution. In Hitler’s own book, Mein Kampf, he referred to evolutionary concepts repeatedly. He reasoned that if evolution is true, it then follows that somebody is on top and others are underneath. The Jews fell into that latter category. Does believing in evolution matter?
Speaking of which, do you happen to know the title of Charles Darwin’s first book? The Origin of Species, right? Actually, the title is longer. It’s The Origin of Species By Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life.
In the Dred Scott decision of 1857, the U.S. Supreme Court declared that black people are not legal persons according to the U.S. Constitution. The philosophical mindset that produced this kind of ruling was based on evolutionary teaching.
An example of the devastating consequences of such thinking is the acceptance of abortion. In 1867, Ernst Haeckel drew a series of pictures that represented the evolution of every “animal” including “humans” as they supposedly went through the evolutionary transitions during embryological development. In 1871, he confessed that what he had done and the pictures that he had drawn were fraudulent. It is amazing that this false science of “Ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny”, or the Abiogenetic law, is still found in all biology textbooks and is prominent in many museum displays today! This is the concept that was presented to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973, which led to the landmark decision that “unborn babies are not legal persons” according to the U.S. Constitution.
“If there is no God to be accountable to, then what’s the point of trying to modify your behavior to keep it within acceptable ranges? I always believed the theory of evolution as truth.” -Jeffrey Dahmer, convicted cannibalistic serial Killer known as the “Milwaukee Monster”
Evolution vs. Faith
Although The Origin of the Species was published in November 1859, the concepts expressed in it were already highly publicized. The birth of Darwinian evolution was brought about through the groundwork laid by James Hutton in the 1700’s. By the late 1800’s, the revolutionary teaching of evolution had set its foothold firmly in the hearts of many.
Hutton stated that the earth was much older than most people believed at the time, based on their biblical understanding. Yet, the Bible teaches very clearly that God created everything in six days. In Mark 10:6, Jesus said, “But from the beginning of the creation God made them [Adam and Eve] male and female.”
All biology textbooks show charts and graphs clearly depicting that humans came from the same common ancestor as apes, monkeys, chimpanzees, gibbons and others. Such illustrations clearly contradict the Bible’s plain teaching that man was created in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:26).
Oftentimes, science textbooks will state that “uniformitarianism” (evolution) provides an “alternative” and “is in contradiction to the literal interpretation of the Bible.” A Prentice Hall Teacher’s Edition biology textbook in a section entitled “Teaching Tips” states: “Point out to students that Darwin could very easily have dismissed all of his observations, or simply attributed them to a mysterious force or deity.” This textbook is stating that students can dismiss their science and believe in their deity. In other words, if you believe in God, it is necessary to dismiss science. This is simply not true! For in John 17:17, Jesus says in His prayer His “word is truth.” Therefore, all true science will agree with the Bible, and it does!
There are many examples, but one of the most fundamental to the issue at hand is this: evolution teaches that life started from non-life and has diversified (evolved) over eons of time from one thing to the next. However, the Bible says ten times in the first chapter of Genesis that everything reproduces “after his kind.” This is scientifically observable, testable and repeatable. Dogs give birth to dogs, people to people, cats to cats, etc. However, there is no evidence of anything giving rise to anything other than its own kind. Therefore, the evolutionary teachings do not qualify as science, but rather a belief. Science is on our side.
In July 2002, Scientific American wrote quite extensively on Creation vs. Evolution. In it they wrote concerning people who do not believe in evolution: “Inadequate education plays a part in this – confidence in evolution grows with schooling…” Also, in the September 1999 issue, they wrote, “…top scientists are more atheistic than ever before.”
The Final Deception
Unwittingly, many have compromised the very beginning of God’s word with evolutionary time scales and concepts. If the first verse of the first chapter of the first book in the Bible is incorrect or has no clear teaching, then how can the rest of it be trusted?
The above is just a small sampling of the depth and magnitude of the big picture. Evolutionary teaching affects everything about a society. It is so much more than “How old is that rock?” or “When did that fossil form?” It affects our laws. It affects our moral behavior.It affects our belief in the Bible. It has been proclaimed through t he decades that the philosophies taught in schools today will become the philosophies of the next generation of government. A nation’s leaders and educators of tomorrow are the children of today. A person’s worldview matters.
Many people unknowingly have been deceived because the groundwork for this humanistic philosophy has slowly, subtly and incrementally been set in place. The degradation of mankind and the compromising of the Bible within the Christian community have provided the path that will help to usher in the Antichrist and his world system of the endtime.
