How ironic that events abound today for evolutionist Charles Darwin's 200th birthday, but not for emancipator Abraham Lincoln's (Pioneer Press, Happy birthday, Darwin. Oh, you too, Lincoln.).
What does it say about a society when it largely overlooks the man who ended the evil of slavery in the United States, but widely celebrates the legacy of a man who unleashed the most unspeakable evils in the history of the human race?
How did Darwin do that? By dressing up with a veneer of scientific respectability a dehumanizing worldview that justifies genocide as survival of the fittest. Think Hitler, Stalin, Mao...
Darwinists should be apologizing to the world in shame, not celebrating.
Abraham Lincoln is the real hero whose birth 200 years ago today is cause for celebration.
