Darwin Admits Theoretical Limitation of Evolution
“I am quite conscious that my speculations run quite beyond the bounds of true science.” (from a letter to Asa Gray, Harvard biology professor, cited in Charles Darwin and the Problem of Creation, N.C. Gillespie, p.2)
These words are either ignored or buried by those who have invested their lives in Darwinian Theory. When Creationists or Intelligent Design theorists make the accusation that the Theory of Evolution is a pseudo-science and that it is not based upon the principles of the scientific method, we are called religious fanatics or worse.
When the Theory of Evolution is carefully scrutinized, the questions that arise are so devastating that no real criticism can be allowed. We find that the scientific community today is so invested in the naturalistic and materialistic worldview of Darwin, that any and all evidence that questions this Darwinian worldview are suppressed.
Anyone who thinks that this is not true, that somehow those who ascribe to calling themselves “scientists” are somehow righteous and are held to a higher standard of truth are sorely mistaken. It has been the history of science that any challenge to the status quo or the accepted consensus is somehow invalid.
A perfect example of this is what happened to Ignaz Philipp Semmelweis (July 1, 1818 - August 13, 1865). He was a Hungarian physician called the "savior of mothers" who discovered, by 1847 that the incidence of puerperal fever could be drastically cut by use of hand washing standards in obstetrical clinics. Even though Semmelweis had a large influence on Joseph Lister, the Father of modern antiseptic surgery, the work and writings of Semmelweiss were ridiculed by his contemporaries for decades.
In 1861, Semmelweis finally published his discovery in the book "Die Ätiologie, der Begriff und die Prophylaxis des Kindbettfiebers" (German for "The Etiology, Concept and Prophylaxis of Childbed Fever") of which Semmelweis sent copies to medical societies and also to leading obstetricians in Germany, France, and England. A number of unfavorable foreign reviews of the book prompted Semmelweis to lash out against his critics in series of open letters written in 1861-1862, which did little to advance his ideas. At a conference of German physicians and natural scientists, most of the speakers rejected his doctrine.
In 1856, Semmelweis' successful results at the clinic of the University of Pest were announced in the Viennese Medical Weekly (Wiener medizinische Wochenschrift). The editor remarked sarcastically that it was time people stopped being misled about the theory of chlorine washings.. This is sometimes translated into English as "it was time to stop the nonsense of hand washing with chlorine."
In July of 1865, Dr. Semmelweis suffered what we characterized as a nervous breakdown. Much of this could be directly attributed to the rejection of his seminal work in the area of antiseptic practices and disease prevention. He had theorized what would become the “Germ Theory” decades before that same theory would replace the status quo of the Miasma Theory or the theory of bad air producing disease.
Today a grand hoax is being perpetrated on our society. It is come in the form of a theory that is derived from a book entitled The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin. A man who by his own admission was honest enough to write the following concerning his own Theory of Evolution, “I am quite conscious that my speculations run quite beyond the bounds of true science.
Karl Marx wanted to dedicate his Das Kaptita1 to Darwin. Marx believed that Darwin’s book contained the basic view of “class struggle in History.” He read Darwin while in prison in December of 1860. “Defending Darwin is nothing new for socialists. The socialist movement recognized Darwinism as an important element in its general world outlook right from the start. When Darwin published his Origin of Species in 1859, Karl Marx wrote a letter to Frederick Engels in which he said, ‘… this is the book which contains the basis in natural history for our view.’

Joseph Stalin carried out the bloodiest massacres in world history by ordering the execution of 20 million people. He believed adamantly that the teaching of evolution would turn one against God and once God was removed, the people would be committed to the state. Pro-Stalin propaganda published in Moscow in 1940 illustrates this:
“I’ll lend you a book to read; it will show you that the world and all living things are quite different from what you imagine, and all this talk about God is sheer nonsense,’ Joseph [Stalin] said. “`What book is that?’ I enquired. “`Darwin. You must read it,’ Joseph impressed on me” E. Yaroslavsky, Landmarks in the Life of Stalin (Moscow: Foreign Languages Publishing house, 1940), pp. 8-12.
Every time a connection is made between Darwin and communism, the secular world cries foul. They become indignant that someone has dared to make this connection. The same protest is made when the Theory of Evolution is associated with the Holocaust. Even though the connections between these two groups, the purges of communism and the final solution of fascism are irrefutable, evolution scientists and secular humanist professors refuse to admit this connection publicly and the protest vehemently any time this connection is made.
