Real Christians, presumably, wouldn’t demand an accounting about the rapidly growing evidence against Darwinism and other materialist isms. And real Christians wouldn’t make a film about the people who get Expelled for doing so.
(Of course, all ID sympathizers are Christians, right? Hear that, Ben? David? Gerald?)
Schloss’s essay illustrates the fact that theistic evolutionism (vending Darwin to the masses on behalf of Christ) is dead. Dead because it is a solution to a problem that does not exist any more.
In the twentieth century – a violent, materialist age – dogma insisted that life forms do not show evidence of design – Then the theistic evolutionist had a purpose.
But life forms do show evidence of design. And Darwin’s mechanism is not a reasonable explanation for why they do. Nor is any other materialist mechanism. And gradually more and more people know the actual reasons.
The theistic evolutionist can now survive only by justifying (or denying) the Darwinist’s Expulsion of those who accept the evidence. As the Darwinist loses credibility, so does the theistic evolutionist.
I expect that they will go extinct together, but the former will be a magnificent bloody failure and the latter merely an overlong, tendentious footnote.
