Darwin Day

Darwin Day

Darwin Day was instituted by the admirers of Charles Darwin as a memorial of Darwin’s birth, February 12, 1809, and a celebration of his efforts[1] in science. The work which has most characterized the life of Darwin was his book, Origin of Species, published in 1859. Since Darwin’s death on April 19, 1882 at the age of 73, sporadic efforts have been made to remember Darwin’s efforts. Such attempts to remember Darwin by his admirers are enthusiastic endeavors to ensure that their nonscientific theory of evolution continue to enjoy support by a credulous public that continues to lend support for that which finds no scientific evidence![2]

In 1909, more that 400 scientists and dignitaries from 167 countries gathered at Cambridge, England to remember Darwin and advance the cause of evolution. Such institutions as the New York Academy of Sciences, the American Museum of Natural History, the Royal Society of New Zealand, the University of Chicago,and many others have advocated Darwin as a defender of scientific truth, rather than what he was—a theorist of a world view without obligation to a Creator.

Plans for an annual observance of Darwin were devised by The Humanist Community of Palo Alto, California in late 1993 and motivated by Dr. Robert Stephens. Their first Darwin Day event was sponsored by the Stanford Humanists student group and Humanist Community on April 22, 1995. Since then, The Humanist Community has continued an annual observance of February 12. Since these initial efforts, Darwin Day has gained popularity and much greater organization throughout America.

Though their bodies lie cold and dormant, the grave cannot contain the influence these seven men have had on today’s world. They continue to rule because they have altered the thinking of society. They generated philosophies that have been ardently grasped by masses of people but are erroneous and antiscriptural. Today these ideas pervade our schools, businesses, homes, and even the church. As we continue to unknowingly subscribe to their philosophies, we keep the grave open for Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Julius Wellhausen, John Dewey, Sigmund Freud, John Maynard Keynes, and Soren Kierkegaard. Dave Breese warns us of the dangers of believing unreservedly the ideas of these seven men. He also reminds us of the only man whose life and words we can trust completely–Jesus Christ. Dave Breese, discusses Darwin’s devastating influence upon the world. One reason death and destruction has prevailed upon the world to the degree it has is because of any obligation to a Creator and Ruler. Darwinism has become the intellectual crutch of atheism and agnosticism. If Christianity is to influence the world for good, denominations, pastors, and local churches must be vigorous in their attack against Darwinism in any form!

[1] Since Darwin’s theory of evolution completely lacks scientific support, the expression “contribution” is not used here. The theory of evolution, as admitted by Darwin himself in Origin of Species (1859), has not enjoyed scientific support, but, like many errors, it has raced around the world before truth has had an opportunity to put on its boots.

[2] In 1972 Stephen Jay Gould and Niles Eldredge developed another theory of evolution called punctuated equilibrium, which suggested that evolution did not occur over a long period of time, but rather over a very short period of time. Both forms of evolution have no scientific support! Gould’s and Eldredge’s form of evolution is a confession that there is not support for gradual evolution, but tragically, Gould and Eldredge do not bother to provide any evidence for their theory either.
