Chance and Necessity on the War against God in the Struggle for Life

2012-08-07 23:46

In 1889 Charles Darwin published what he called “The Origin Of Species By Means Of Natural Selection, Or The Preservation Of Favored Races In The Struggle For Life". In another book, called “The Descent Of Man,” Darwin linked human beings explicitly and shockingly to hairy primates which have pointed tails and long ears.

Darwin in publishing these books wanted to back up his idea that Life – all Life - is a competitive fight and struggle for existence. And creatures that possess useful characteristics or that developed such characteristics by evolution are favored in the struggle. And the human being because it has so many advantages is simply an animal that has adapted to this stage. People are just animals – are not made in the image of God. They are just animals like a dog or donkey. The human spirit is not higher than any animal – it is just simply an animal that has undergone a series of ecological and biological processes of evolution and adaptation. We see this teaching in great display nowadays where people live without God, having disconnected themselves from God because they belief now they have evolved better than humans through history. The is the essence of the conscious frame of the modern man.

The teaching of evolution and the manner in which it has so much influence means that the people who achieve in life and become superior in external things - driving luxury cars, swanking around with high tech mobile phones, living in luxury houses, are possessions, wealth and luxury are favored by nature, they adapted in the struggle for life, they are the winners, they are successful, they are the favored races. And what about people who do not follow this philosophy? The people that live simple life that is close to nature and natural resources instead of mechanical technology and the results it brings? What about these people where the notion of family and community is more important than personal wealth or external material possessions. People who have shifted their focus from a quest for the external material possessions and external pleasures and fun to a voyage into the internal inner life where their lives are a journey of the inner spirit and soul not pampering of the body and its desires with external pleasures and indulgences. People who have realized that the gateway to lasting success does not swing outward, it opens inward, thinking far more about the needs of their souls and devoting more time to activities like being more loving and compassion – being real human.

These people with this very different mentality, different from living of dominance and external wealth as influenced by Charles Darwin through his teaching of “the favored race” are thought of as the scum of the earth, backward and half animals, uncouth and uncivilized – they are to be pities, to be laughed at because they fail to adapt or evolved to become higher species. It is interesting to read the subtitle of Darwin's book; The Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life. Darwin's ideas spread wildly because he also studied to be a lawyer and had a forceful personality like most lawyers have. He was effective in arguing his case for the philosophy of evolution. Darwin was also an effective messenger, telegenic, fluent, and adept at weaving facts together with humor and argument. He really succeeded teaching and selling his philosophy so much so billions of people are affected by it whether they know it or not. People defining success by exterior things rather the simplicity and peace of nature. How much money one makes and how many promotions one goes through.

So Darwin was against the teachings of the Bible as reflected in the book of Genesis. He was against God. And so the whole western thought that is having such tremendous force and echo across the whole world is actually false – chasing of external shadows.

Darwin went to church like all other gentlemen did in his times. Darwin had studied theology to be a priest and pastor at Cambridge University. In the final analysis of his life Darwin saw no higher moral or religious ends in life than chance and necessity. Chance and necessity is still the philosophy of the modern times. Meaning that everything here in our lives happens by chance and necessity, there is no superior force or God who is regulating the affairs of this world. In doing this Darwin literally cut off God in the lives and psyche of people - and allowed people to fight and kill each other in struggle for survival. And the philosophy that Darwin preached has caught up with the world like wild fire to the extent that people are so cut off from God and their only concern is pleasure and fun. Some of these people in their pleasures and fun still add the notion and concept of God but in actual fact and reality – the lives they live shows that there are just hypocrites.
