Charles Darwin was well aware that his conclusions about the origin of the species would be resented and resisted because they were inconclusive. “For I am well aware that scarcely a single point is discussed in this volume on which facts cannot be adduced, often apparently leading to conclusions directly opposite to those at which I have arrived. A fair result can be obtained only by fully stating and balancing the facts and arguments on both sides of each question; and this cannot possibly be here done.”
Today, any descent from Darwin is considered to be a mark of lack of scholarship, which is unfortunate, for such an elitist attitude silences discussion. Normally, skepticism is a mark of science. A good scientist is proud to be skeptical in order to engage in honest inquiry about a matter and how it works. Today, public schools, colleges, and academia have become very closed minded about the theory of evolution, not because it is true, but because evil is militant and wants to prevail in order to be like God, and reign as a sovereign. In other words, undergirding the theory of evolution, and promoting its acceptance without discussion, is Lucifer.
The hesitancy of Darwin to be as dogmatic as his successors fits into the pattern of evil which is hesitant at first, and then becomes bolder with its assertion once it has a listening audience. The template for introducing an idea contrary to the known will of God was established in the Garden of Eden when Satan first questioned God, made a bold assertion, and then suggested a novel position.
Questioning God. “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.”
Making a Bold Assertion. “4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:”
Introducing a Novel Idea. “5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.” (Gen. 3:1-7)
