Darwinism and popular culture: A columnist reminds me of its easy, empty phrases

In “A God who bleeds” (July 31, 2009), Jonah Goldberg notes,
Oprah promised Obama would help us “evolve to a higher plane.” Deepak Chopra said Obama’s presidency represented “a quantum leap in American consciousness.” Last month, Newsweek editor Evan Thomas proclaimed that Obama stood “above the country, above — above the world, he’s sort of God.”
Well, however you would vote, you gotta feel at least a bit sorry for a guy who was supposed to be a “quantum leap” and help us all “evolve to a higher plane.”
Popular Darwinism doesn’t need a laugh track, that’s for sure.

PS: For the record, Christians do believe in a God who bleeds. But that’s not the point of the story. The point is that his blood saves people. That is how you can know. Does it do anything?
