Innocent Blood

Proverbs 6:16-17: "These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood…"

I'm sure you've heard evolutionists say that all real scientists believe in evolution. Well, let me tell you about a different theory that many if not most scientists believed in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries – eugenics. This is the belief that some people groups – like blacks and Jews – are inferior and should be eliminated to improve the gene pool of the human race. In theory, it made sense to many. But when the innocent blood of millions was spilled by Adolf Hitler, suddenly it didn't seem like such a good idea.

Best-selling novelist, the late Michael Crichton, points out in his book State of Fear that supporters of eugenics didn't just include scientists. It included statesmen like Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and Winston Churchill, inventor Alexander Graham Bell, author H.G. Wells, playwright George Bernard Shaw and many, many others who were among the elites of society.

Eugenics even had the support of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Medical Association. And let's not forget Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, an organization that continues killing millions of babies every year.

Well, as deadly as eugenics turned out to be, it doesn't even come close to the millions of lives lost because of Darwin's theory of evolution. Not only has Darwinism led to the slaughter of countless millions by ruthless dictators, it even destroys the perpetrators of such cruel acts by giving them an excuse to deny the Bible's account of creation and reject salvation in Christ.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I pray that You will help me and biblical-creation ministries like Creation Moments expose evolution as the pseudoscience it really is. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

Notes: "Why Politicized Science Is Dangerous," Appendix 1 of Michael Crichton's novel State of Fear, pp. 575-577. Illustration: Logo from the Second International Eugenics Conference, 1921. The phrase "Eugenics is the self direction of human evolution" makes the connection between eugenics and evolution crystal clear. (PD)
