The Moral Impact Of Darwinism On Society
Phil Fernandes Ph.D. gives a 60 minute seminar that was recorded during the Seattle Creation Conference on October 2011 at Woodin Valley Baptist Church.
Darwinian thought has not only damaged our scientific knowledge of the world--it has also led to the moral decline in the West. Many leaders have tried to apply evolutionary science to moral issues, and the results have been devastating. Darwinian evolution denies that man was created in God's image and has led to the de-valuing of human life. It has played a significant role in the eugenics ("good genes") movement, ultimately leading to atrocities such as the holocaust, abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia. The influence of evolutionary thought on Planned Parenthood, Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, and American culture will be examined.
