Darwinsts try to cover up who they are…

I recently came across a Darwinist blog HERE. It talks about things you can do to worship Darwin on his birthday. Suggestion number 2 sticks out to me:

“2. Stop using the terms Darwinism and Darwinian evolution”

Are they suggesting hiding the name of their beloved idol? And of course there is a call to make your pilgrimage to the holy land:

“9. Visit the Galapagos or at least check out the Darwin Station online.”

And people say I am wrong for labeling them Darwinists.

  1. If you’re not trying for snark, you are stupider than you look.

  2. There’s a difference between respecting a scientist and being an absolutist follower of that scientist.

    “Darwinist” is inaccurate because evolution, while begun by Charles Darwin, has moved beyond his work and has found several points that he made to be wrong.

    I have a great deal of respect for Newton. But to call me a Newtonian is silly, because the study of motion has moved past what Newton discovered.

    I understand that, because you worship something you want everyone to worship something. It fits your worldview more cleanly.

    Sorry, but it just isn’t so.

  3. I used the worship metaphor as sarcasm, but if I hit a sore spot sorry.

    There are some people that do worship Darwin though. They believe everything he wrote no matter what the evidence. They dedicate their lives to reading his books and talking to others about him. They spend lots of money on buying items that feature him and traveling to location he was linked too. They even have a temple you can go too called the Darwin Museum. Sounds like to worship to me.

    If you are not guilty of this then it should not bother you. But if the shoe fits, wear it.

  4. “They dedicate their lives to reading his books and talking to others about him. They spend lots of money on buying items that feature him and traveling to location he was linked too. They even have a temple you can go too called the Darwin Museum. Sounds like to worship to me.”

    Sounds like a sports fan to me.

  5. morsec0de: correct, a lot of people worship athletes. Thanks for agreeing with me.

  6. I don’t agree, but I understand you now. You have a very loose definition of the word ‘worship’.

    Which is your prerogative, of course. But it’s not what most people mean when they use the word.

  7. according to mcoville, i am a part of the religion of the green bay packers. I have most certainly read books on the team, players, and coaches, i’ve spent money on packers memorabilia, and i have traveled to green bay to go to there hall of fame and to lambeau field. “sounds like worship to me.”

    i never thought of it, but thanks for putting it into perspective.

  8. ““Darwinist” is inaccurate because evolution, while begun by Charles Darwin…”

    Darwin actually didn’t “begin” evolution. For example, spontaneous generation originated around the 4th century BC which was eventually disproved by Louis Pasteur in 1859.

    Many scientists over the years used terms like “Darwinian evolution” and as believers in that theory, it would only be logical to call them a “Darwinist.” Some evolutionists admire the proposal so greatly that the original is never replaced, but only added to. So evolution has indeed expanded greatly since Darwin’s time, it’s so complex now with conflicting evidence and story telling, it’s a no wonder there such a debate over terms…lol…

  9. darwinist is unacceptable because people do not worship darwin, and in fact they quickly overide his assertions- furthermore he is revered not because of himself but because of evolution, a theory he proposed.
