Ernst Haeckel: Evolution’s Greatest Forger
Ernst Haeckel, a German biologist who Darwin leaned on to prove evolution in the development of embryos, is remembered today for his forged illustrations of embryos. He also helped to make the case for legalized abortion by stating incorrectly that newborn infants are born deaf and without a conscience—which led to the idea that the newborn baby has no soul. So what about the child inside the womb? Based on his logic, Haeckel said that abortion could not be considered murder.
Ernst Haeckel was much more than just a fabricator of evidence in support of Darwin’s new Theory of Evolution, he was a zealous disciple of Darwin who himself has placed on record the conviction that Haeckel's enthusiastic propagandizing of the doctrine (of evolution) was the chief factor of its success in Germany.
Haeckel, again, was the first to attempt to draw up a genealogical tree exhibiting the relationship between the various orders of animals with regard both to one another and their common origin. These phylogenetic trees have become popular tools for the presentation of the theory of common decent from common ancestry or drawings that connect one life form to another allegedly related life form. The only problem with these fanciful illustrations is that they are completely imaginary.
Dr. Stephen Jay Gould, the late professor of Geology and Paleontology at Harvard University is quoted as making the following startling admission concerning these popular evolutionary trees.
"The extreme rarity of transitional forms in the fossil record persists as the trade secret of paleontology. The evolutionary trees that adorn our textbooks have data only at the tips and nodes of their branches; the rest is inference, however reasonable, not the evidence of fossils."

Haeckel’s unreserved promotion of Darwinian Theory helped to lay the foundation of the modern eugenics movement. Haeckel wrote and promoted his Monism theory of life. This theory rejected a dualistic view of man e.g. physical and spiritual, and embraced a purely biological view of all living things. A movement that used Darwinian Theory to justify the murder of those deemed “unfit” to continue living, while focusing on personal, individual fulfillment, self-love and a love for nature, sans any inference of God or biblical revelation.
Some of the forward looking social programs that Haeckel’s newly established religion endorsed included placing natural selection on a high pedestal, and seeing some human ethical codes as interfering with the process. Nature selects by killing the unfit so, Haeckel argued, humans should not only not interfere with this process by keeping the unfit alive, but help it along by eliminating them.
Of course many of his contemporaries were also racist and in favor of eugenics, but as the most eminent German biologist and theoretician of evolution of his day, Haeckel, bears a grave responsibility in giving racism and eugenics the facade of scientific legitimacy. The modern-day activities of the eugenics movement can be seen in the work of Planned Parenthood. A group who today promote themselves as a family planning organization, but whose roots go right back to Haeckel and the false religion of monism he established and promoted. Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a devout follower of the eugenics movement and a racist.
This religion, where the strong (adults) suppress and eliminate the weak, the unwanted and the possibly unfit with the approval of the government in modern abortion clinics all over the world is the continuation of the ancient practice of child sacrifice. Mankind is not evolving, they are devolving. Going backwards and practicing primitive atrocities in the state-of-the-art doctor’s offices and clinics around the world.
