1830: CHARLES LYELL FREES SCIENCE FROM MOSES

1830: CHARLES LYELL FREES SCIENCE FROM MOSES: “I am sure you may get into Q.R. [Quarterly Review] what will free the science [of geology] from Moses, for if treated seriously, the [church] party are quite prepared for it. A bishop, Buckland ascertained (we suppose [Bishop] Sumner), gave Ure a dressing in the British Critic and Theological Review. They see at last the mischief and scandal brought on them by Mosaic systems. ...
I conceived the idea five or six years ago, that if ever th...   Click here for more...

1844: DARWIN ADMITS HE’S LYELL’S DISCIPLE

1844: DARWIN ADMITS HE’S LYELL’S DISCIPLE: During his time on the Beagle (1831 – 1836) Charles Darwin read lawyer Charles Lyell’s book Principles of Geology. After returning to Britain, Darwin wrote to a friend and colleague about the effect of Lyell’s writings on his own research and writing:
“I always feel as if my books came half out of Lyell’s brains & that I never acknowledge this sufficiently, nor do I know how I can, without saying so in so many words — for I have a...   Click here for more...

1859: DARWIN’S COMPLETE DEPENDANCE ON LYELL

1859: DARWIN’S COMPLETE DEPENDANCE ON LYELL shows in his comment:
“He who can read Sir Charles Lyell's grand work on the Principles of Geology, which the future historian will recognise as having produced a revolution in natural science, yet does not admit how incomprehensibly vast have been the past periods of time, may at once close this volume.”
Darwin, 1859, Origin, Ch IX, p282

1859: DARWIN’S GRAND VIEW OF LIFE

1859: DARWIN’S GRAND VIEW OF LIFE The final paragraph of the first edition of Darwin’s Origin of Species, sums up his view of how all living things came into being:
“It is interesting to contemplate an entangled bank, clothed with many plants of many kinds, with birds singing on the bushes, with various insects flitting about, and with worms crawling through the damp earth, and to reflect that these elaborately constructed forms, so different from each other, and dependent on each other...   Click here for more...

1873: DARWIN ON HOW BEST TO ATTACK CHRISTIANITY

1873: DARWIN ON HOW BEST TO ATTACK CHRISTIANITY; wrote Darwin:
"I have lately read Morley's Life of Voltaire & he insists strongly that direct attacks on Christianity (even when written with the wonderful force & vigour of Voltaire) produce little permanent effect: real good seems only to follow from slow & silent side attacks."
Letter to his son George H Darwin, 21 Oct 1873
Ref. atheists, sceptics, philosophy)

1873: DARWIN ON LYELL’S METHOD

1873: DARWIN ON LYELL’S METHOD:
“Lyell is most firmly convinced that he has shaken the faith in the Deluge etc far more efficiently by never having said a word against the Bible, than if he had acted otherwise.”
Letter to his son George H Darwin, 21 Oct 1873

ED. COM. The Deluge refers to Noah’s Flood – a world wide catastrophe sent in judgement on man’s evil behaviour. Darwin, Lyell and their present day followers were, and are, not just rejecting God’s power as Creato...   Click here for more...

1876: DARWIN ON CHRISTIANITY

1876: DARWIN ON CHRISTIANITY: In his autobiography Darwin dismissed the Old Testament and the Gospels. He then describes his disbelief in Christianity:
“Thus disbelief crept over me at a very slow rate, but was at last complete. The rate was so slow that I felt no distress, and have never since doubted even for a single second that my conclusion was correct. I can indeed hardly see how anyone ought to wish Christianity to be true; for if so the plain language of the text seems to show t...   Click here for more...

1876: DARWIN ON THE GOSPELS

1876: DARWIN ON THE GOSPELS: In his autobiography Darwin dismissed the Old Testament and then went on to attack the Gospels:
“By further reflecting that the clearest evidence would be requisite to make any sane man believe in the miracles by which Christianity is supported,—that the more we know of the fixed laws of nature the more incredible do miracles become,—that the men at that time were ignorant and credulous to a degree almost incomprehensible by us,—that the Gospels cannot be p...   Click here for more...

1876: DARWIN ON THE OLD TESTAMENT

1876: DARWIN ON THE OLD TESTAMENT: In his autobiography Darwin describes his loss of trust in the Bible over the years as he worked on his evolutionary theory:
“Whilst on board the Beagle I was quite orthodox, and I remember being heartily laughed at by several of the officers (though themselves orthodox) for quoting the Bible as an unanswerable authority on some point of morality. I suppose it was the novelty of the argument that amused them. But I had gradually come, by this time, to...   Click here for more...

1876: DARWIN’S PROBLEM WITH SUFFERING

1876: DARWIN’S PROBLEM WITH SUFFERING: Darwin was aware of the dilemma between a good God and the observed suffering of living things. He wrote in his autobiography: “A being so powerful and so full of knowledge as a God who could create the universe, is to our finite minds omnipotent and omniscient, and it revolts our understanding to suppose that his benevolence is not unbounded, for what advantage can there be in the sufferings of millions of the lower animals throughout almost endless tim...   Click here for more...

1879: DARWIN’S GOD

1879: DARWIN’S GOD: Although he rejected the Bible, Darwin does not reject the idea that there is a god:
“It seems to me absurd to doubt that a man may be an ardent Theist & an evolutionist. ... In my most extreme fluctuations I have never been an atheist in the sense of denying the existence of a God. I think that generally (& more and more so as I grow older) but not always, that an agnostic would be the most correct description of my state of mind.”

1880: DARWIN ON CHRIST

1880: DARWIN ON CHRIST: In November 1880 a man named Frederick McDermott, who declared himself to believe that “Christ was the Son of God,” wrote to Darwin, asking if Darwin also believed this, and if he believed in the New Testament. Darwin replied:
“I am sorry to have to inform you that I do not believe in the Bible as a divine revelation, & therefore not in Jesus Christ as the son of God.”

1881: DARWIN ON MAN AND MONKEYS

1881: DARWIN ON MAN AND MONKEYS: Nine months before he died Darwin wrote about his views on mankind:
“But then with me the horrid doubt always arises whether the convictions of man's mind, which has been developed from the mind of the lower animals, are of any value or at all trustworthy. Would any one trust in the convictions of a monkey's mind, if there are any convictions in such a mind?”
Letter to William Graham, 3 July 1881.

1881: DARWIN ON MAN’S STRUGGLE FOR EXISTENCE

1881: DARWIN ON MAN’S STRUGGLE FOR EXISTENCE: Nine months before he died Darwin wrote about his views on mankind:
“Lastly I could show fight on natural selection having done and doing more for the progress of civilisation than you seem inclined to admit. Remember what risks the nations of Europe ran, not so many centuries ago of being overwhelmed by the Turks, and how ridiculous such an idea now is. The more civilised so-called Caucasian races have beaten the Turkish hollow in the str...   Click here for more...

2000: DARWIN’S FAMILY LEGACY

2000: DARWIN’S FAMILY LEGACY Darwin’s great great grandson declared: “I don’t believe in God: how could I, given my great great grandfather’s theories? But perhaps I would feel happier if I did. Just because I have rejected conventional religion, it does not mean there isn’t a void to be filled.”

A GLOBAL TIME TO LIVE
A GLOBAL TIME TO LIVE as scientists who have long stopped talking about the hole in the ozone layer pronounce ozone now in excess on the ground and needing a global solution, at the same time as Politicians comment that finance "...is a global crisis that requires a global solution," (Democrat Barack Obama and many Republicans, and many politicians around the world). It all follows the global warming/climate change furore that we have been told for several years demands a global solution also. K...   Click here for more...

A five million year old piece of bone
‘A five million year old piece of bone that was thought to be the collarbone of a human like creature is actually part of a dolphin rib…The problem with a lot of anthropologists is that they want so much to find a hominid that any scrap of bone becomes a hominid bone.’ Dr Tim White (anthropologist, University of California, Berkeley). As quoted by Ian Anderson in New Scientist, April 28, 1983, p.199. ...   Click here for more...

ABOUT MOSES AND JESUS
ABOUT MOSES AND JESUS: “The problem for the Jews was that they clung to the words of Moses and rejected Jesus. The trouble for many Christians today is that they cling to Jesus and deny the words of Moses.” Jesus said to all concerned, “If you believed Moses, you would believe me”, (John 5: 46 -7). The reverse is also true, that if we claim to believe Jesus as Lord and Saviour and God, then the same Christ has committed us to accept the words of Moses, because as Jesus said, “he wrote about me”....   Click here for more...

AGE OF EARTH?

AGE OF EARTH? It’s not a new debate. Augustine (AD 354 – 430) wrote: “They are deceived, too, by those highly mendacious documents which profess to give the history of many thousand years, though, reckoning by the sacred writings, we find that not 6000 years have yet passed.” The translator’s note says: “Augustine here follows the chronology of Eusebius, who reckons 5611 years from the Creation to the taking of Rome by the Goths; adopting the Septuagint version of the Patriarchal ages.” Euseb...   Click here for more...
