….of Karl Marx. Without Charles Darwin, Karl Marx would merely be a footnote to history. The month of October had great significance some 180 years ago, when Charles Darwin wrote this in his Autobiography: "In October 1838, that is, fifteen months after I had begun my systematic enquiry, I happened to read for amusement Malthus on Population, and being well prepared to appreciate the struggle for existence which everywhere goes on from long-continued observation of the habits of animals and plants, it at once struck me that under these circumstances favourable variations would tend to be preserved, and unfavourable ones to be destroyed. The result of this would be the formation of new species. Here, then, I had at last got a theory by which to work..." Darwin, Charles (1958). Barlow, Nora (ed.). The Autobiography of Charles Darwin 1809–1882. With the original omissions restored. Edited and with appendix and notes by his granddaughter Nora Barlow. London: Collins. At age 29, Darwin had his theory, a work in progress. As of this day, it remains a work in progress, yet to be proven. From the start, it was the support for Marx’s ideas, which also, at the cost of millions of lives, remains yet to be proven. Now…the details of that 'partnership'. 1.On the very same day, February 12, 1809, Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin were born. “Lincoln, whose life’s mission was to reconnect the nation with the Founder’s thinking, became the most brave, eloquent, and consequential proponent of the idea that human dignity inheres in the capacity of individuals to shape their own lives’ trajectories by exercising their natural rights to make moral choices. Darwin, however, unleashed an idea that seemed to challenge humanity’s understanding of its dignity.” George Will. 2.While Lincoln owns the position of champion of freedom and liberty, Darwin has become the point of the spear for Marxism and Progressivism. If Marx had been correct, the Declaration of Independence could not be correct about God-given unalienable natural rights. Marxism: There is no God: "This concept is an essential element of Marxism. As Lenin stated: "Atheism is a natural and inseparable portion of Marxism, of the theory and practice of Scientific Socialism." If God exists and is in supreme command of the universe, He possesses discretionary power, and His actions cannot always be calculated accurately in advance. The whole edifice of Marxism collapses. When Marx and the Communists deny the existence of God, they simultaneously deny the authority of the Ten Commandments, the existence of absolute standards of right and wrong, of good and evil; and man is left on the playing fields of the universe without a referee, without a book of rules. The winning side in any conflict can decide on what rules of conduct to apply. Morality is the creation of the victor."The Schwarz Report | Essays 3. But Marx, proceeding on so-called ‘scientific socialism,’ needed a way to use science against his greatest foe, religion. And Darwin provided that. One of the first readers of 'On the Origin of Species' was Friedrich Engels, then living in Manchester. He wrote to Karl Marx: "Darwin, by the way, whom I’m reading just now, is absolutely splendid. There was one aspect of teleology that had yet to be demolished, and that has now been done. Never before has so grandiose an attempt been made to demonstrate historical evolution in Nature, and certainly never to such good effect." Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, "Marx-Engels Collected Works" , vol. 40, p. 441. 4. Marxists, Progressives, well-placed in academia and the media report the tenuous theory of Darwin as fact….as though it was proven, a law of scinece. It is neither, and, in fact, evidence disproves it. " Because the claims of Darwinism are presented to the public as "science" most people are under the impression that they are supported by direct evidence such as experiments and fossil record studies. This impression is seriously misleading. Scientists cannot observe complex biological structures being created by random mutations and selection in a laboratory or elsewhere." Johnson P.E. "Evolution as Dogma: The Establishment of Naturalism," Foundation for Thought and Ethics: Richardson, Texas, 1990, pp1-17 "And let us dispose of a common misconception. The complete transmutation of even one animal species into a different species has never been directly observed either in the laboratory or in the field." Dean H. Kenyon (Professor of Biology, San Francisco State University), affidavit presented to the U.S. Supreme Court, No. 85-1513, Brief of Appellants, prepared under the direction of William J. Guste, Jr., Attorney General of the State of Louisiana, October 1985, p. A-16. Over 150 years and not only has no proof of Darwin’s wish been found…but evidence to the contrary has! But, heck, it all works out for the Left as long as government school grads never do their own reading or research… …...or thinking.
