The liberating myth

Clark pinnockThe reason evolution is believed and taught as fact is not due to the evidence for it, but rather due to the need for it. Any “natural miracle” (that inert matter is creative) is preferable to a humanist over a “supernatural miracle” (that God is the Creator). The state schools do everything they can to promote the myth because it is essential to the religion of humanity.

Man cannot be autonomous if there exists a transcendent God with a divine law. Such a God must die. Evolution is accepted because it shuts Him out, and leaves man free. But what an awful freedom! The freedom to know nothing, to be nothing, to believe nothing. The words of Paul have never been more fitting in the history of the world than now: “Professing themselves to be wise, they become fools” (Rom. 1:22).
