"To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree."
Yet, Charles Darwin was willing to take that "leap of faith." One has to wonder why men are so ready to believe some things and so slow to believe others. After all is said in done, we simply accept what we want to be true. So, the question is, what reward is there in believing in Darwin's theory? The reward in which the secularist delights is a life absent any and all accountability to God. No one will admit that that's their motivation, but we are all motivated by something, especially with our leaps of faith.
“Since 1979, observes Schroeder, reputable scientific journals no longer accept articles that cite the origin of life as rising from random reactions over billions of years. ‘Confirmed evolutionists agree that you just cannot win … The time is just not there.’
Was Hitler a believer? The answer is an emphatic yes!--in natural selection and Darwinian evolution. He preached it and lived it, as evidenced by such statements as this one:
"Nature is cruel, therefore we too can be cruel." - Adolf Hitler
This is a good summary statement of the philosophy that is most "natural" (pardon the pun) to Darwinism. Those who operate from an evolutionary presupposition can lay no real claim to the message of compassion. It is contradictory to the most fundamental tenets of their worldview. Few have ever lived as consistently with what they believe as did Hitler. We seem to be able to recognize the error of his behavior, but less able to identify the belief system that justified that behavior. By contrast, the Christian message of a God who enters our world and suffers in our place to bring divine love and redemption to the human race is very consistent with the idea of living compassionately.
May we be as consistent to our beliefs as Hitler was to his!
