There is no doubt about it – Charles Darwin is idolized. He lifted up as a hero by atheists and even some Christians for discovering and explaining macro-evolotion. Richard Dawkins has even said that Darwin was the one who gave him a rational and logical reason to not believe in God.
But there are some things about Darwin that are swept under the rug. If we knew about (and faithfully taught) what Darwin himself taught, maybe the world wouldn’t embrace his beliefs so eagerly. It has been my belief that by removing God, you erase the value of human life. I did know that others used Darwin’s theories to justify great evils. I thought they had come to their own logical conclusions. I wasn’t aware that Darwin embraced and encouraged the same evils first, and his followers were just following suit.
