How Evolution Has Permeated Our Society

Don Ruhl • Savage Street, Grants Pass, Oregon • March 25, In the year of our Lord, 2018


  1. “Can America Survive the Fruits of Atheistic Evolution?”
    1. is the title of a tract by Bert Thompson.
    2. How can America survive if evolution
      1. influences our children in school,
      2. taints the reporting of the news, and
      3. shapes government policy?
    3. How can America survive a teaching that promotes
      1. the subjugation of the weak,
      2. the survival of the fittest, and
      3. that teaches might makes right.
    4. How can America survive when evolution asserts that man is only an animal?
    5. How can America survive when evolution teaches that God does not exist?
    6. How can America survive when evolution says all behavior is biological?
      1. Galatians 6 affirms a truth we currently see in the world,

        8 …he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption… (Galatians 6.8).
      2. If you do not believe that spirit exists,
        1. you will sow according to the flesh.
        2. You will also reap accordingly.
      3. This is why they “treat” sinful behavior with medications.
  2. Evolutionary Psychology
    1. A rapidly growing new field of research uses evolution to explain behavior.
    2. This turns still more people, Christians included, away from the Scriptures.
      1. When they wed behavior with medicine,
      2. people stop using the Bible to address behavior.
    3. In 1993, Newsweek (Sharon Begley, May 10, 1993, p. 63) said:

      “One day, a doctor may no sooner treat a condition without knowing its evolutionary history than write a prescription without knowing the patient’s medical history.”
    4. Believing that we are nothing more than biological machines,
      1. who have inherited our behavioral tendencies from our ancestors, and
      2. that we are not spiritual individuals,
      3. influences every social organization.
  3. Politics and Prejudice
    1. How was the monster of Nazism born?
      1. Do you realize that the seeds of Nazism or fascism
      2. already permeate American culture?
    2. I speak of evolution,
      1. which is the foundation for fascism and genocide.
      2. Do you know the full title to Charles Darwin’s infamous book?
        1. Most people call it: The Origin of Species.
        2. Here is the full title: The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life.
    3. Evolutionist George Gaylord Simpson was right when he said in the forward:

      “No other modern work has done so much to change man’s concept of himself and of the universe in which he lives…”
    4. Darwin put out another book after the Origin of Species in 1859, and
      1. this time he called the book, The Descent of Man:

        “With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated; and those that survive commonly exhibit a vigourous state of health. We civilized men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check the process of elimination; we build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed, and the sick; we institute poor-laws; and our medical men exert their utmost skill to save the life of every one to the last moment. There is reason to believe that vaccination has preserved thousands, who from a weak constitution would formerly have succumbed to small-pox. Thus the weak members of civilized societies propagate their kind. No one who has attended to the breeding of domestic animals will doubt that this must be highly injurious to the race of man.”
      2. Do not be surprised then that we have adopted in America:
        1. abortion,
        2. infanticide,
        3. physician-assisted suicide,
        4. euthanasia, and
        5. other means of extinguishing other unwanted human life.
      3. Darwin influenced German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, because
        1. he admired Darwin’s work, and
        2. Nietzsche sought a super-race in his homeland
          1. by promoting the idea that inferior races and individuals
          2. should be culled from civilization.
            1. Like removing undesirable animals from your livestock.
            2. Like weeding out poor-looking plants in your garden.
              1. In his mind religion, especially Christianity and Judaism,
              2. were the greatest obstacles to achieving this end.
    5. Evolutionists frequently oppose the Bible.
      1. If evolution continues unchecked,
        1. the consequences upon the church in the future will be devastating.
        2. Romans 1.18–32 explains what happens when a nation denies God.
      2. Nietzsche furnished Hitler with his philosophical basis for the Holocaust.
        1. Hitler believed that other tribes should not mix with his tribe, and
        2. you know the rest of his evil.
      3. In 1947 Sir Arthur Keith, an evolutionary anthropologist, conceded:

        “The German Fuhrer, as I have consistently maintained, is an evolutionist; he has consciously sought to make the practices of Germany conform to the theory of evolution.”

        1. Arthur Keith was from Great Britain.
        2. So was Charles Darwin.
          1. It is unfortunate that Darwin propagated the philosophy
          2. that almost wiped out his homeland in World War II.
      4. An evolutionary professor of biology at Purdue University
        1. tried to weaken the connection
        2. between evolution and the horrors of Germany, but then admitted:

          “I don’t claim that Darwin and his theory of evolution brought on the holocaust; but I cannot deny that the theory of evolution, and the atheism it engendered, led to the moral climate that made a holocaust possible.”
    6. Spanish/American philosopher George Santayana said:

      “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to relive it.”

      1. Why did Egypt make slaves out of the Israelites? Exodus 1 says,

        8 Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph (Exodus 1.8).
      2. The new Pharaoh did not know the Lord.
        1. You know what happened to the Hebrews as a result.
        2. What shall happen when future generations of Americans
          1. forget The Declaration of the United States and
          2. how the Bible formed the foundation of our society?
  4. Evolution Has Captured Our Colleges
    1. Most of America’s first colleges and universities had biblical backgrounds.
      1. How did Harvard get its name?

        “It was named after the College’s first benefactor, the young minister John Harvard of Charlestown, who upon his death in 1638 left his library and half his estate to the institution.” (From Harvard website)
      2. [Plaque at Harvard]
      3. Harvard University now promotes evolution.
        1. Stephen Jay Gould taught at Harvard.
          1. He is the man who said
          2. that if a high school hires a creation scientist,
          3. they have hired an incompetent.
        2. It was founded by Puritans and trained Congregational and Unitarian ministers.
    2. In 1865, J. W. McGarvey established the College of the Bible in Lexington, Kentucky.
      1. Six years after he died evolution entered the college.
      2. The school is now known as Lexington Theological Seminary.


  1. There is a war for our souls, especially young souls, in Western Culture.
  2. Evolution teaches that we came from the goo to the zoo to produce you.
    1. Do not be surprised when we act like the zoo.
    2. For we all imitate whom we believe is our Father.
  3. However, if you are a Christian you imitate your Heavenly Father.

    1 Therefore be imitators of God as dear children (Ephesians 5.1).

    1. We imitate that which we worship.
    2. If you are an evolutionist, you imitate your father.
      1. You either act like the zoo or the goo.
      2. Isaiah 1 shows
        1. that when Israel left God,
        2. they acted worse than animals:

          3 “The ox knows its owner
          And the donkey its master’s crib;
          But Israel does not know,
          My people do not consider.”
          (Isaiah 1.3)
    3. How shall we act?
      1. Which father shall we follow?
        1. Father Evolution?
          1. or
        2. Creator Father?
