Discoveroids Adopt a Ken Ham Doctrine

Canada Goose online This is about another example of the Great Creationist Coalescence (the GCC) of various creationist outfits. The last canada goose outlet belgium example was Ken canada goose outlet 80 off Ham Adopts Another Discoveroid Doctrine. Before that we wrote Ken Ham Featured at WorldNetDaily, and before canada goose outlet store quebec that Ken Ham Adopts the Privileged Planet Doctrine. Today you see that the Discoveroids are returning the favor by adopting one of Hambo doctrines. Canada Goose online

canada goose store This just appeared canada goose outlet nyc at the Discovery canada goose outlet vancouver Institute creationist blog: Why My Critics Care So Much About the Darwin Hitler Connection. We canada goose outlet montreal consider Weikart to be the intellectual godfather of the Discoveroids frequently repeated malicious mantra: Darwin, no Hitler. Here are some excerpts, with bold font canada goose outlet in canada added by us canada goose outlet toronto location for emphasis: canada goose store

Canada Goose Jackets Maybe that because his canada goose outlet locations in toronto is a wee bit, ah, dubious see Discovery Institute: Hitler, Hitler, Hitler, Part VI. and also Discovery Institute: Hitler, Hitler, Hitler, Part V, which canada goose outlet store uk links to canada goose outlet store calgary several earlier posts on the same subject. Okay, back to canada goose outlet real the new Discoveroid article: Canada Goose Jackets

canada goose coats As I demonstrate in my newly released book [link omitted], there is a fundamental tension between many Darwinists claim that morality is an evolved trait thus having no objective reality and their moral indignation toward Hitler buy canada goose uk (and toward me for explaining how Darwinism informed Hitler ideology). canada goose coats

canada goose uk black friday That a strange and totally artificial conflict. Morality is an intellectual concept, and concepts have no objective reality. But we intelligent enough to determine how we ought to live, and our moral principles are very much a part of our social existence. Let’s read on: canada goose uk black friday

canada goose clearance sale To be sure, I have encountered some true believers in Darwinism who have told me that their Darwinian inspired moral relativism leads them to the conclusion that Hitler was neither right nor wrong. I once held a conversation with a philosophy graduate student who defended moral relativism on canada goose outlet in chicago Darwinian grounds. After I pressed him to see if he was willing to be relativistic canada goose outlet jackets about Hitler atrocities, he uttered the stunning words, was OK. if Weikart actually met such an idiot, the encounter proves nothing. He continues: canada goose clearance sale

canada goose factory sale Maybe you think this student was just off his rocker. However, the leading evolutionary biologist and world famous atheist Richard Dawkins took a similar position in an interview, where he was being questioned canada goose outlet ontario about his moral relativism. Dawkins asked, to prevent us from saying Hitler wasn right? I mean, that is a genuinely difficult question. If this is a tough moral question for Dawkins, he should stop pontificating about how religions are root of all evil, canada goose shop uk especially since he doesn believe that evil actually exists! canada goose factory sale

Did Dawkins really canada goose outlet boston say that? We hunted around to find the source. The best we could do was this blog post from December 2007: Richard Dawkins: The Atheist Evangelist by Larry Taunton, founder and Executive Director of something called Fixed Point Foundation. He says he had an interview with Dawkins, and his article begins canada goose outlet sale like this:

canada goose As I made canada goose stockists uk my way through the streets of Oxford [going to the interview], I speculated about the sort of man I would encounter. Was he a mad scientist bent on the destruction of the canada goose outlet vip existing social order; an egomaniacal chap cleverly building the cult of his personality while laughing all the way to the bank; or a true believer, an evangelist for atheism, who believes in his message and in his mission? canada goose

Canada Goose Outlet Obviously, Taunton is canada goose outlet eu a fair minded, objective interviewer. Here one of his preliminary questions, followed by Dawkins answer: Canada Goose Outlet

uk canada goose «What defines your morality?» I asked with genuine curiosity. uk canada goose

canada goose black friday sale There was an extended pause as Dawkins considered the question carefully. «Moral philosophic reasoning and a shifting zeitgeist.» He canada goose outlet new york city looked off and then continued. «We live in a society in which, nowadays, slavery is abominated, women are respected, children can’t canada goose outlet new york be abused all canada goose vest outlet of which is different from previous centuries.» canada goose black friday sale

canada goose uk outlet Fair enough. Then we get to the part that Weikart quote mined: canada goose uk outlet

cheap Canada Goose I asked an obvious question: «As we speak of this shifting zeitgeist, how are we to determine who’s right? If we do not acknowledge some sort of external [standard], what is to prevent us from canada goose outlet authentic saying that the Muslim [extremists] aren’t right?» cheap Canada Goose

cheap canada goose uk «Yes, absolutely fascinating.» His response was immediate. «What’s to prevent us from saying Hitler wasn’t right? I mean, that is a genuinely difficult question. But whatever [defines morality], it’s not the Bible. If it was, we’d be stoning people for breaking the Sabbath.» cheap canada goose uk

buy canada goose jacket That all there is on the subject. Did Dawkins say that he, personally, had difficulty deciding that Hitler was wrong? No, he obviously didn but that what Weikart wants canada goose outlet shop us to believe. Let return to his essay: buy canada goose jacket

Canada Goose Parka Most Darwinists, however, including those who believe in the evolution of morality, do not have consciences as dead as Dawkins, so they are genuinely outraged by the historical connections between Darwin and canadagoosetomall Hitler. They consider Hitler truly evil, and they don want their positive image of Darwin tarnished by any association canada goose outlet online uk with this evil man. Canada Goose Parka

canadian goose jacket Especially when the is totally fictitious see Hitler and Darwin. Moving along, we finally come to why this canada goose jacket outlet toronto is an example of the Great Creationist Coalescence. Wilson and philosopher Michael Ruse famously put it, then what makes the illusions of some people superior to Hitler illusions? canadian goose jacket

uk canada goose outlet [Groan] It never occurred to us that morality is a genetic illusion. It probably true, however, that a tendency to cooperation has been bred into us. But the philosophical subject of ethics is a different matter. Anyway, Weikart wonders why evolutionists (immoral beasts that we are) care about morality. That the sort of question we see all the time from ol Hambo. A good example is this article he wrote a year ago: Why Do Atheists Care? Hambo says we shouldn care, because morality comes to us only from canada goose outlet price the bible. Weikart feels the same way morality only comes from religion his religion so everyone else is inherently depraved. uk canada goose outlet

canada goose uk shop Okay, that enough from Weikart. His essay clearly demonstrates that the Great Creationist Coalescence is continuing. The Sensuous Curmudgeon. canada goose uk shop

Canada Goose Coats On Sale feels the same way morality only comes from religion his religion so everyone else is inherently depraved. exactly. Weikart is a protestant Christian. He may not be a fundamentalist; he may not be an evangelical or charismatic I can tell from a google but canada goose jacket outlet sale he is surely a subscriber to the doctrine of universal depravity. Everybody, Weikart and his co religionists as well, is depraved. Psalm 14, canada goose outlet toronto you know the gig. Canada Goose Coats On Sale

Canada Goose sale Well, that what he thinks. What he thinks about a canada goose outlet connection between Charles Darwin and Adolf Hitler canada goose outlet hong kong is also the product of the extreme lack of empathy and charity, and the absolutism typical of his party. Weikart can discern the is ought dichotomy, which Charles Darwin certainly could. Any attempt to suggest that Darwin theory leads to Hitler founders on that one simple fact. Canada Goose sale

canada goose coats on sale Oh, certainly. Hitler had quite canada goose jacket uk certainly never read Darwin, and his only chance for contact with the theory of evolution was in the Realschule he attended until he was fifteen, while repeating one year because of unsatisfactory performance. But even that unlikely. canada goose coats on sale

buy canada goose jacket cheap Apart from that, while Hitler certainly claimed a wide, deep and scholarly reading, there is no evidence at all to support it. He had a phenomenal memory for detail, and he read almanacs and yearbooks to feed it. He never read any of them except possibly Fichte. The real sources for his ideas and worldview, canada goose parka outlet uk apart from his psychological necessities, were the scabrous racist, and semi pornographic pamphlets he read in Vienna before the First World War. buy canada goose jacket cheap

Canada Goose Online In short, the intellectual worlds of Charles Darwin canada goose outlet online store and Adolf Hitler were so radically different as to be completely alien to each other. Hitler would have regarded Darwin with contempt; Darwin would have regarded Hitler with horror. Canada Goose Online

canada goose clearance The GCC actually fulfills canada goose outlet uk sale a prediction I made years ago. But first note that the convergence is not a return to the YEC «science» of the 60s 80s. The Ken Ham doctrine that the DI has adopted has nothing to do with their «evidences» for a young official canada goose outlet Earth. Ham also displayed some GCC when he debated Nye. I was surprised that he used canada goose outlet parka the «historical science» vs «real science» excuse, because YE «science» has to admit that «historical science» canada goose outlet london exists to make its case. Ham was just adopting the DI’s tactic of trying to have it both ways canada goose clearance.
