An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
An Alternate Theory of Evolution
from The Bunker
I am a conspiracy theorist. I grew up in the 1960’s. No, I’m not going to bore you with the JFK assassination, that’s too easy. In my youth there were some popular sayings. One popular proclamation was, “Make Love not War” which was fun. Another was, “Question Everything” and that was much harder. I’m going to offer you a conspiracy theory of my own making. I’m going to use the Theory of Evolution to help you think outside the box. Grab some tinfoil and get ready to make a hat!
We all know about Charles Darwin and his little book, “On the Origin of the Species.” The influence on our society is without question.
Here are some significant historical events that shaped Intellectual thinking. They occurred around the same time period as Darwin’s book. They also had a very dramatic impact on educational theory and political thinking. If you are unfamiliar with any of these, just do an internet search for more insight.
In 1848 Karl Marx published “The Communist Manifesto.” It was hailed by the elite classes as a new beginning, a solution to all the worlds’ inequalities. One platform of his plan was that, “”Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people”. Marx didn’t think much about a belief in God.
In 1859 Charles Darwin published his book. Again, it was greeted as a new beginning, a solution to where we came from. It is still being taught to everyone today, as fact. God isn’t even in the picture.
In 1882 Friedrich Nietzsche publishes “The Gay Science” in which he proclaims that God is dead. He also furthers the advancement of nihilism, the belief that life is without meaning or purpose. The intellectual class goes wild with excitement.
In 1884 the Fabian Society is formed. I will let you do your own research on this group. Its socialist and collectivist political theory is still guiding the education system of this country. Read: “The Turning of the Tides.” It’s a free download.
In 1912 the rise of Eugenics began. Using Darwin’s evolution theory universities and government’s in Europe and the United States begin a systematic study of society looking for undesirable traits in humans. It was even tested in the Supreme Court in Buck vs. Bell, 1927
What do all these events have in common with the other? The evolutionary rise of socialist ideals in education and political thought began with Marx’s manifesto. Marx’s perfect society had no room for religion or God. Darwin’s theory provided a scientific explanation as to the origin of man. Nietzsche provided a philosophical reason for a meaningless life. My contention is that the theory of evolution is a weak scientific theory. However it is a powerful political theory couched in scientific gibberish.
Darwin was most likely sincere in his beliefs. But does it really make any logical sense? Before Darwin the belief in a Supreme Being or god’s went back millennia. The human species gazed in amazement at the world around them and understood that something more powerful than themselves shaped their existence. Am I to believe that one man, Darwin could negate the common understanding of the billions of soul’s that came before him?
Darwin’s little theory needed help. Socialists and collectivists grabbed hold of his idea’s and shaped them to further their political purposes. They pushed and continue to force this weak theory on the masses to destroy religious thought. It is sad to say that it has worked out pretty well for them.
In 1642 Isaac Newton was born, he wasn’t a “Sir” quite yet. He was a real scientist. Let me give you one of his lease known quotes, “Gravity explains the motions of the planets, but it cannot explain who set the planets in motion. God governs all things and knows all that is or can be done.” Another little known fact is that two thirds of all of his papers stored at Cambridge University concern his studies of religion and the Bible. Sir Isaac was a mathematician; he was obsessed with the idea that the bible contained a code. Today it is known as “The Bible Code” and is worth looking into.
If I had to choose between two scientists; well, for me the pick is obvious.
How’s my conspiracy so far? I can teach you how to make a cool looking tinfoil hat!
