RARELY SEEN QUOTES 2: Implications       --SCROLL DOWN--  

Thompson, W.R., "Introduction," Origin of Species, by Charles Darwin (Dutton: Everyman's Library, 1956, p. xxii.) Dr. Thompson was Director of the Commonwealth Institute of Biological Control, Ottawa:
“The success of Darwinism was accompanied by a decline in scientific integrity."

Huxley, Julian, "Evolution and Genetics"  in What is Science?  edited by J.R. Newman (New York: Simon and Schuster, 1955), p. 272:
"The concept of evolution was soon extended into other than biological fields.  Inorganic subjects such as the life-history of stars and the formation of the chemical elements on the one hand, and on the other hand subjects like linguistics, social anthropology, and comparative law and religion, began to be studied from an evolutionary angle, until today we are enabled to see evolution as a universal and all-pervading process."

Conner, Cliff, “Evolution vs. Creationism: In Defense of Scientific Thinking,” International Socialist Review (Monthly Magazine Supplement to the Militant) (November 1980):
“Defending Darwin is nothing new for socialists. The socialist movement recognized Darwinism as an important element in its general world outlook right from the start. When Darwin published his Origin of Species in 1859, Karl Marx wrote a letter to Frederick Engels in which he said, ‘ … this is the book which contains the basis in natural history for our view.’

Gasmann, Daniel, The Scientific Origins of National Socialism: Social Darwinism in Ernst Haeckel and the German Monist League (New York: American Elsevier, 1971), 208 pp:
p 168   "[Hitler] stressed and singled out the idea of biological evolution as the most forceful weapon against traditional religion and he repeatedly condemned Christianity for its opposition to the teaching of evolution…. For Hitler, evolution was the hallmark of modern science and culture, and he defended its veracity as tenaciously as Haeckel."

Hsü, Kenneth J., “Sedimentary Petrology and Biologic Evolution,” Journal of Sedimentary Petrology, vol. 56 (September 1986), pp. 729-732:
p 730   "Haeckelian Darwinism found its terroristic expression in national socialism. For Hitler, evolution was the hallmark of modern science and his ‘views of history, politics, religion, Christianity, nature, eugenics, science, art, and evolution, … coincide for the most part with those of Haeckel.’ In the biological theory of Darwin, Hitler found his most powerful weapon against traditional values."

p 230   “The German Führer, as I have consistently maintained, is an evolutionist; he has consciously sought to make the practice of Germany conform to the theory of evolution. He has failed, not because the theory of evolution is false, but because he had made three fatal blunders in its application…. First … forcing the pace of evolution among his own people…. Second … his misconception of the evolutionary value of power…. Third … His third and greatest mistake was his failure to realize that such a monopoly of power meant insecurity for Britain, Russia, and America. His three great antagonists, although they do not preach the doctrine of evolution, are very consistent exponents of its tenets.”

Lenczowski, John, “The Treason of the Intellectuals: Higher Education, the Culture War and the Threat to U.S. National Security,” Policy Counsel (Fall 1996), pp. 35-52. Lenczowski is Former Director of European and Soviet Affairs, National Security Council, 1983-1987:
p 44   “In one fell swoop, through these various premises, the intellectuals deny the existence of God; they deny that God made human life a series of moral choices; and they assert that they, through the supremacy of their human reason, and not God, are the creative intelligence of this world.”

p 45   “But I would guess that 95 percent of the social scientists in America’s elite universities—or could it be 99 percent?—would not sign the Declaration of Independence if they were honest about it. They simply do not believe in the first paragraph. They do not believe that rights come from any Creator. And thus, they cannot believe in the fundamental tenet of American democracy: majority rule with minority rights. Because unless rights come from a higher authority, one with the capability to endow rights unconditionally, the majority can always attach conditions to rights or deny them to whichever minority group it chooses to victimize.”

Grasse', Pierre-P., Evolution of Living Organisms  (New York: Academic Press, 1977), p. 107.:
      "Directed by all-powerful (natural) selection, chance becomes a sort of providence, which, under the cover of atheism, is not named but which is secretly worshipped." 

"Evolution is a fairy tale for grown-ups. This theory has helped nothing in the progress of science."  Dr. Louis Bounoure, Director of Research, French National center for Scientific Research

Lipson, H.S., "A Physicist Looks at Evolution"  Physics Bulletin, vol. 31 (May 1980), p. 138. (Dr. Lipson is Professor of Physics at the University of Manchester):
       "In fact, evolution became in a sense a scientific religion. Almost all scientists have accepted it and many are prepared to 'bend' their observations to fit in with it.  To my mind the theory does not stand up at all."

"More cases of loss of religious faith are to be traced to the theory of evolution... than to anything else."  Martin Lings, 'Studies in Comparative Religion'

"The fact that a theory (evolution) so vague, so insufficiently verifiable, and so far from the criteria otherwise applied in 'hard science' has become a dogma, can only be explained on sociological grounds."  Ludwig von Bertanlanffy, Biologist

"Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today… [Evolution] came into being as a kind of secular ideology, an explicit substitute for Christianity."      - Dr. Michael Ruse, professor of philosophy of biology at Florida State University, "How evolution became a religion: creationists correct?" National Post, May 13, 2000, pp. B1, B3, B7

"We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to Materialism [naturalism]. Materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door."  -  Harvard Paleontologist Richard Lewontin, Quoted in "Billions and Billions of Demons," The N.Y. Review of Books, January 9, 1997

Muggeridge,  Malcolm , The End of Christendom (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1980), p. 59:
       "I myself am convinced that the theory of evolution, especially the extent to which it's been applied, will be one of the great jokes in the history books in the future.  Posterity will marvel that so very flimsly and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity that it has." 

"It was because Darwinian theory broke man's link with God and set him adrift in a cosmos without purpose or end that its impact was so fundamental. No other intellectual revolution in modern times... so profoundly affected the way men viewed themselves and their place in the universe."  Michael Denton, Biologist, 'Evolution: Theory in Crisis'

Dunphy, John J., 'A Religion for a New Age', The Humanist, vol. 43 (January/February 1983), p.2:
        "I am convinced that the battle for humankind's future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being.  These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist preachers, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subject they teach, regardless of the educational level - preschool day care or large state university.  The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new - the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism, resplendent in its promise of a world in which the never-realized Christian ideal of 'love thy neighbor' will finally be achieved." 

"The philosophy of the classroom in one generation becomes the philosophy of the government in the next." President Abraham Lincoln

     "I had motives for not wanting the world to have meaning, consequently assumed it had none, and was able without any difficulty to find satisfying reasons for this assumption . . The philosopher who finds no meaning in the world is not concerned exclusively with a problem in pure metaphysics; he is also concerned to prove there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do . . For myself, as no doubt for most of my contemporaries, the philosophy of meaninglessness was essentially an instrument of liberation. The liberation we desired was simultaneously liberation from a certain political and economic system and liberation from a certain system of morality. We objected to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom."   —*Aldous Huxley, "Confessions of a Professed Atheist," Report: Perspective on the News, Vol. 3, June 1966, p. 19 [grandson of evolutionist Thomas Huxley, Darwin's closest friend and promoter, and brother of evolutionist Julian Huxley. Aldous Huxley was one of the most influential liberal writers of the 20th century].

     "We no longer feel ourselves to be guests in someone else's home and therefore obliged to make our behavior conform with a set of preexisting cosmic rules. It is our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces. We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the universe. We are responsible to nothing outside ourselves, so we are the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever." - Jeremy Rifkin, Algeny (New York: Viking Press, 1983)

Morain, Lloyd, and Oliver Reiser, "Scientific Humanism: A Formulation" The Humanist, vol. 48 (September/October 1988), p. 34 reprinted from Spring 1943 issue:
        "In the coming planetary civilization of a world-embracing humanism, those 'religions' that obstruct social advance must be subordinated.  In the world of scientific humanism, religion will be obsolete, but the religious spirit - the sense of awe and reverence in the presence of a majectic universe - will consitute a wholesome ingredient in the economic-political-relfective synthesis."

Dickerson, Richard E.,  "The Game of Science"   Perspectives on Science and Faith, vol. 44 (June 1992), p137:
       "Science fundamentally, is a game.  It is a game with one overriding and defining rule:  'Rule No. 1: Let us see how far and to what extent we can explain the behavior of the physical and material universe in terms of purely physical and material causes, without invoking the supernatural.'"

"A great, diametrically opposite shift in fundamental thinking in American culture occurred during the twentieth century:  FROM Creation-based thinking TO Naturalistic-based (evolutionary) thinking.  And, we tax payers have been all paying the bill for this naturalistic ideology -  No sovereign authority, No inherent purpose in life, Zero individual worth - to shape the thinking and values of the last three generations of Americans!  So, what should we expect attitudes and behavior of our young people and culture to be as a result of this?"   Stephen Lawler, Bigger Picture Foundation

Albert Einstein, (1879-1955) Physicist & Nobel Laureate:
     "There are only two ways to live your life: as though nothing is a miracle, or as though everything is a miracle."

     "The important thing is to not stop questioning."
