We are looking at you. We are looking at you now.
Do you renounce the nonsense? Or just hope to get more funds from it until you quietly retire?
Christians need not be afraid to confront the inconsistencies of Darwinism
Can you name something that natural selection doesn’t explain? The most distinctive things about us—what Christians call our spiritual qualities—can’t be explained by natural selection. Tell me the adaptive value of a sense of beauty. Or say you are moved to awe by Bach’s Air on the G String: How does awe help you to pass on your genes to the next generation? One sociobiologist, an atheist, speculated that a gene for believing in God would help social groups cohere. But then why not just have a gene for cohering? Why should natural selection first produce a gene that makes us need to believe in something nonexistent, and later produce another that makes us think it does exist? Besides, I haven’t noticed that believing in God does make people cohere. It can make them war against each other because they worship different gods. These are such crazy, made-up, ex post facto explanations.
Are we legally allowed to ask these questions? Do Christians for Darwin allow them to be confronted?
Hope that guy’s job is safe.
