In a bizarre, perverse inversion of the legitimate goal of science — to find the truth wherever the evidence leads — Darwinists continue to turn things upside down.
We are constantly assured that if the unwashed, low-IQ masses could just be “educated,” and become “scientifically literate,” they would embrace the chance-and-necessity Darwinian anti-gospel with open arms and no dissent.
The endless, droning mantras about the infinitely creative powers of natural selection, the ubiquitous “scientific consensus,” the “finally discovered fossil that finally proves evolution” news releases that appear every few weeks, and all the rest, have nothing whatsoever to do with scientific literacy.
Real scientific literacy about biological systems comes from understanding the discoveries of empirical science in the last half of the 20th century — not from ideologically inspired speculation that is still mired in the scientific ignorance of the 19th century.
The irony is palpable. We are told that Darwinism would be accepted if we were sufficiently “scientifically literate.” Of course, this assumes that “scientific literacy” is 150 years out of date.
Up-to-date scientific literacy is devastating for Darwinism, which is why it must be suppressed at all cost.
