Evolutionists in Their Own Words

Organs of Extreme Perfection and Complication:

“To suppose the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting
different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.”

Charles Darwin, Origin of the Species, (J.M. Dent & Sons, Ltd.: London), 1971, page 167.

Stephen J. Gould on fossils and paleontology:

“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.”

Stephen J. Gould, “Evolution’s Erratic Pace,” Natural History, vol. 86, no. 5, May 1977, page 14.

Stephen J. Gould was a professor of geology and paleontology at Harvard University, and a Jew. He was an atheist until his death, and an enemy of creationists.  Surprisingly, he was one of the more honest evolutionists.

“The abrupt manner in which whole groups of species suddenly appear in certain formations, has been urged by several paleontologists… as a fatal objection to the belief in the transmutation of species. If numerous species, belonging to the same genera or families, have really started into life at once, the fact would be fatal to the theory
of evolution through natural selection.”

– Charles Darwin Origin of the Species.

Compiler’s note: It is interesting to note the full title of Charles Darwin’s first book. We know it as “Origin of the Species”, but the full title is: “Origin of the Species, by Means of Natural Selection or The Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life.”

“I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and
respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being.  These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist preachers, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a
classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subject they teach, regardless of the educational level – preschool day care or large state university.  The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new – the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism.”

“Evolution is unproved and unprovable. We believe it only because the only alternative is special creation, and that is unthinkable.”

– Sir Arthur Keith, Physical anthropologist and anatomist, who wrote the forward to Darwin’s Origin of the Species 100th anniversary edition.

“I consider the Negro to be a lower species of man and cannot make up my mind to look upon him as a man and a brother for the gorilla would have to be admitted into the family.”

– Ernst Haeckel, Imminent German Biologist and popularizer of Darwinian Theory. He is also known for his embryo drawings that later turned out to be fraudulent.

Compiler’s note: This remark, one of many of the kind made by evolutionists, just shows the inconsistency in their worldview.  Some fight for animal rights, and yet they degrade “blacks”, whom they see as animals.

Margaret Sanger

Margaret Sanger, Founder of today's 'Planned Parenthood'.

“Arguments for racism may have been common before 1859, but they increased by orders of magnitude following the acceptance of Evolutionary theory.”

– Stephen J. Gould, “Ontology & Phylongeny” (1977)

Consider this quote by Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood:

“We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”

– Margaret Sanger, in a letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, on December 19, 1939.

Clarence Darrow

“I do not consider it an insult, but rather a compliment to be called an agnostic. I do not pretend to know where
many ignorant men are sure — that is all that agnosticism means.”

– Clarence Darrow, Scopes Trial, Dayton, Tennessee, July 13, 1925.

Mr. Darrow, the defense attorney in the famous Scopes Trial, was a God-hater, and wanted nothing to do with religion. He viewed God on the same level as the fictional character ‘Mother Goose’.

Consider the following quote:

“I do not believe in God because I do not believe in Mother Goose.”

– Clarence Darrow, Speech in Toronto (1930).

Eric Harris

“If you recall your history the Nazis came up with a “final solution” to the Jewish problem… kill them all.  Well [sic] incase you haven’t figured it out yet, I say, “K I L L M A N K I N D” no one should survive.”  – Eric Harris, Columbine shooter, writing in his journal about his plans to slaughter his fellow students – June, 1998.1

Compiler’s note:
Eric Harris, and his co-shooter, Dylan Klebold, both were highly influenced by the Evolutionary mindset, and by the philosophies
of such people as Adolf Hitler.  They believed they were helping society by carrying out this wicked act of murder, and therefore
speeding along ‘Natural Selection’.  When you read their diaries, you will see that Evolutionary ideas were a huge driving factor in their ‘shooting spree’.

Paul Kurtz, contributor to the Humanist Manifesto II

“We can discover no divine purpose or providence for the human species. While there is much that we do not know, humans are responsible for what we are or will become.  No deity will save us; we must save ourselves. ”  – Humanist Manifesto II1

Compiler’s note:
Paul Kurtz, and the others who wrote the Humanist Manifesto II have rejected God and His creation work, and are therefore unwilling to accept the gift of salvation offered through God’s Son, Jesus Christ.  Why would they accept Jesus, if they don’t accept the One Who sent Him?  They are our fellow man, created in the image of God.  We should be praying regularly for their salvation.
