Dr. Darwin will see you now

From Denyse O’Leary at Salvo:

In 2008, Robert Perlman, who taught courses in evolutionary medicine at the University of Chicago, complained in the Review, “This spring, under the chairmanship of Edmund Pellegrino, the Council [President’s Council on Bioethics] published a reader, ‘Human Dignity and Bioethics’, to expand and clarify the concept of human dignity. The neglect or dismissal of evolution in this volume is striking.”5

Striking? Why? No non-human ancestor is on the examining table.

Of course, writers and editors for publications like the Review might not think that matters. When one is sufficiently steeped in Darwinian evolution, bodies of scientific fact gain value principally by their association with it. More.

Dr Longages, practice partner of Dr Darwin, who was given his medicine by Charles Lyell, also delved into patients past lives as evolving animals, and both found no original sin. Therefore, a Saviour had no reason to die for us, as he created death in the first place. Hence, dying in order to save us from death is meaningless. Therefore, such should be discarded as an old wife's tail and superstition. Which, of course, the good Dr Darwin, said so from the beginning, accurately diagnosing the ills of humanity evolved from a worm and lately a monkey, and before that, gas from a spiral galaxy. mw
"Dr Darwin will see you now," how ironic, when Darwin was into fittness; as the title of his book suggests, "On the Origin of Species By Means of Natural Selection Or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life." "Darwin responded positively to Alfred Russel Wallace's suggestion of using Spencer's new phrase "survival of the fittest" as an alternative to "natural selection", and adopted the phrase in The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication published in 1868." https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survival_of_the_fittest So, we go to see a Dr Darwin type, devoid of intelligence, blind, relying on the patient's mutational mistakes in their biological make-up, the Dr dishing out a chance prescription. The whole practice with one accord believes, that how we become more fit. "Physician heal thyself," some one said; who instantly improved the health of Lazarus by raising him from the dead, and raised himself from the dead. Miraculous fitness, is how that God said at Sinai, He created us all, and everything in six days, prescribed as a medicine to take as truth, the better to live by. Today, we spit it out! That's why we see Dr Darwin. mw
