Our Friday plans are getting better and better. Remember, the crappy talk by John West blaming Darwin for Hitler is at 7 on 30 November at the UM campus — come prepared to be critical. The fun part is that we’re meeting between 5:30 and 6:45 in the Campus Club, on the fourth floor of the Coffman Union. Then some really good news: Mark Borrello, UM’s expert in the history of science, is going to speak briefly after West’s drivel. West isn’t going to get away with anything, at least on Friday.
Unfortunately, he’s also being given an opportunity to lie unchecked to the public on Saturday. The Minnesota Family Council — you already know that this is an evil organization because they’ve got “family” in their title — is going to sponsor another talk.
“Darwin’s ‘Evolution Revolution’ and its Impact on Science, Sex Education, Crime/Punishment, Poverty, Business, and Life & Death Issues”
Saturday, December 1st, 9 am to noon

Dr. John West
of the Discovery Institute and author of the recently released book, “Darwin Day in America: how our politics and culture has been dehumanized in the name of science,”
will lead an exciting half-day workshop on the cultural implications of Charles Darwin’s “Theory of Evolution” and discuss fresh developments undermining its materialist foundations.
Dr. West will discuss the impact Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection
, rooted in scientific materialism/naturalism and its negative impact on a wide range of human endeavors including:
- Comprehensive sex education
- the treatment of crime as mental illness
- the use of eugenics, sterilization, and abortion to solve poverty problems
- “survival of the fittest” business ethics
Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection gave scientific legitimacy to scientific materialism/naturalism which is rooted in the belief there is no God and man and creation is not the result of Design and a Creator but a purposeless, meaningless, chance process.
This worldview has impacted critical areas of life:
- In politics it’s resulted in a utopian belief that science can solve society’s moral and social problems by changing human nature and re-engineering society resulting in the dehumanizing of individuals and the diminution of human dignity.
- In ethics it’s resulted in moral relativism and evolving standards of right and wrong.
- Stifling of free speech.
Religious free speech is stifled because evolutionists and materialists control the definition of right and wrong.
In conclusion, Dr. West will discuss recent developments in the debate over evolution and what they bode for the future.
I’m not going to attend, and I definitely wouldn’t pay out $15 to listen to this fraud. At least you can get an idea from that laundry list of social ills what he’s planning to babble about.
