Celebrating Darwin’s Birthday

By Ron Graham

Charles Darwin is credited with bringing about a worldwide change in man’s thinking about the origins of life. Although Darwin wasn’t the first to espouse the idea of the theory of evolution, he certainly got most of the credit. When Charles Darwin wrote his famous book on the theory of evolution, he probably had no idea where that ugly lie would take mankind and what a major falling away from faith in God would occur.


Man has been trying to glorify Darwin and promote his theory of evolution even though there isn’t a shred of proof of any of those so called scientific “evolutionary” facts. Man in all his diligence has never found any intermediate fossils. This means scientists have no proof of anything evolving from a lower life form into a higher life form. Man has never found or observed a gradual change in any life form in all the billions of fossils that have been dug up in all the years he has been searching. Mutations and adaptations happen, but there is no observable evidence pointing to a transition form one life form to another. That fact alone demolishes the theory of evolution. If Darwin was alive today, and being presented with the scientific facts we now have, he would not be a believer in his own theory.


Darwin wrote “Intermediate links? Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely graduated organic chain; and this, perhaps, is the most obvious and serious objection which can be urged against the theory [of evolution].”

Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species p. 323  


One example we can see is the scientific evidence against the human eye evolving. This is a staggering reality; the scientific evidence is overwhelmingly in favor of our Creator God. All secular scientists have is blind speculation.


“Both the origin of life and the origin of the major groups of animals remain unknown” Alfred G. Fisher, evolutionist Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia 1998, fossil section.


Side note:

www.answersingenesis.org and www.icr.org are two sites devoted to proclaiming the truth about God’s creation. If you like believing in the lie of evolution over what God says He did then I suggest you stay away from these two sites, the convicting truth will certainly change your mind.


What we can attribute to the theory of evolution over the past one hundred and fifty years is a systematic and calculated breakdown of morals in our world’s societies. What’s happening in the world today as far as the cold heartedness of human kind is concerned is a direct result of the promotion of, and adherence to, the theory of evolution. What evolution is basically saying is, every living thing on the face of this planet evolved from pond scum; therefore we have no basis for truth, morals, or for scientific fact. Love only comes from God, and if there is no God then there’s no real love.


When we read about the senseless murders being perpetrated on society throughout the U.S. in our public schools, in our shopping malls, as well as in the safe haven of our very homes and churches, we can know for certain that those lost individuals who commit such crimes had no hope for anything such as life after death. If evolution were correct, mankind certainly wouldn’t be restrained by anyone else’s morals or lifestyles. All of our moral laws can be traced back to the inerrant word of God. Our forefathers were greatly influenced by the Holy Bible. God alone gives man the breath of life. The complete and total depravity you see all around this world cannot be stopped by anything other than a renewed adherence to the Word of God.  


Do we now believe we can consider morality and religion optional without suffering civil and societal repercussions? John Adams, the second president of the United States and one of our Founding Fathers, stated “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other”. Our Constitution is currently being spat upon by a man who believes he is above this governments founding document of laws and precepts. His belief in this evil theory is evident in his promotion of the wholesale murder of the innocent babies in the womb, the promotion of, and the enforced adherence to, the abominable lifestyle of homosexuality.


As a young man, Darwin had attended a Christian college, whether or not he was born again is doubtful. His Christian beliefs, whatever they might have been, waned after his decent into naturalism. When his daughter, Annie, died at the age of 10 years, he put the blame on God. From that point on Satan entered Charles Darwin and rest is history. Darwin’s theory on the origins of man is totally satanic. No born again believer can place their faith and trust in Jesus Christ and the word of God while holding onto the lie of the theory of evolution without compromising God’s inerrant word.


We’re told many times in the Bible that Jesus Christ is our Creator. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. …all things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made,” John 1:1, 3. The Word referred to here by John the Apostle, is of course Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is our Creator God, and He made everything. Did He use evolution to create the world and all the plants and animals including man? NO. He made everything over a period of six literal 24 hour days.


In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Genesis 1:1. Jesus is not only our Creator but He is our redeemer as well. “for by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth” Colossians. 1:16. Jesus created everything “ex nihilo,” or “creation out of nothing”. Only God Almighty could have accomplished that task, and then He went so far as to enter His creation and become a man, all so He could die for His rebellious creation. Those professing Christians who believe in the theory evolution don’t believe in the whole council of God, period. 


We live in a sin filled fallen world, not a world where everything is perfect the way God originally created it. Man sinned against God and made the decision that he could become his own god. It’s still the same today. How many times have you heard someone say, “I’m a self made man” “I pulled myself up by my own bootstraps” “I did it my way”? This prideful attitude goes on and on, and is completely contrary to the word of God. This is the result of leaving our infallible God behind and accepting mans fallible reasoning.


As we look around our nation today we can see there is a cancer spreading and it seems to be unstoppable. This cancer is the direct result of the explicit teaching of evolution in our public schools. You may disagree with me, but if you look at the statistics that have been gathered by various research groups around the country, you’ll see for yourself the appalling spread of this deadly cancer.


The George Barna Research Group (www.barna.org) has years of statistics available for public viewing, and you will see that the trend we are experiencing today in our culture is directly associated with the Bible being outlawed in our public schools, Roe v Wade, and the teaching of evolution as the only viable answer for mankind’s existence. The first two I believe are a direct result of the teaching of the theory of evolution.


What are impressionable children to believe when they are placed in an atmosphere where God and His rules are completely ignored or disparaged? Evolution is taught in many subjects including math. It would be very difficult for any child to go all the way through public school without coming to a firm belief in the theory. Even though evolution is supposedly taught as a theory, it’s actually presented as fact. In the government run public school system today there is no alternative to the theory of evolution being taught. If you don’t believe me just try introducing an alternative view, such as Creationism, into any public school.


You might say, “It’s the parent’s responsibility to re-educate their children when they come home from school and thus it’s their fault if the children grow up believing there is no God.” Yes, parents should teach their children about God. That teaching should be a daily routine, but do they? Most parents today have been sold and adhere to the same lie of evolution their children are being fed. Why would they even consider teaching their children an alternative view opposed to their own? You say, “what about Sunday school”? Evolution vs. creation certainly isn’t a normal Bible study. It would be interesting to do a survey of Sunday school teachers in this country to find out just how many actually believe in creation over evolution.


There is a movement that’s “evolving” all across this nation and around the world, presented by secular as well as many of the mainstream Christian denominational Churches, to celebrate the birthday of Charles Darwin. Yes, by all means let’s celebrate this man’s birthday. Let’s put on a huge celebration and invite all our friends and neighbors to the party, we’ll have a great day celebrating our simian ancestors. Let’s celebrate the birthday of the man who introduced the second biggest lie in history into the lives of all mankind.


Oh, and by the way, if you have a Bible in your home, tear out the first eleven chapters of Genesis, you won’t need them anymore. Everyone knows we evolved from monkeys. The Bible is just a bunch of made up stories, you know that.


I wonder when it was, or where it is, in the Bible that God started telling us the truth. If God isn’t our creator, then what about the virgin birth of our Savior? Or did Jesus really die on that cross? What about His resurrection from the grave, is that also a falsehood? If so, then Christianity is a travesty and our worship is in vain.


This revelation of the theory of evolution means that there really is no life after death. There is no such thing as absolute truth. Everything is relative–moral relativism. Some of you reading this commentary will remember the old adage, “if it feels good do it”. No one has the right to tell you what to do if everything is relative. There are no moral absolutes or absolute truths, remember? Why should anyone have the right to force their morals on you if we all evolved from pond scum? As Darwin would say “it’s the survival of the fittest”. There sure isn’t much love in that statement.


For any professing Christian to believe in the theory of evolution is the same as calling God a liar. Should we Christians celebrate the birthday of Charles Darwin who was basically an atheist? Do we lift up atheists to a position of adoration? I hope not. If we do, then we will most assuredly be held accountable to God for our unbelief. If Jesus Christ isn’t our Creator, then God’s Holy Spirit lied to the men as He led them in writing the books of the Bible. We have been given a choice; it’s up to us to believe and trust God with what He’s placed in His word.


As for me and my family we’ll trust the word of God and follow His word until He takes us home. Oh and by the way, if you’ve made the decision to celebrate Darwin’s birthday this year, don’t invite us, we’ll be busy celebrating our life in Jesus Christ the Creator of the universe.


God bless you all,


Ron Graham
