Evolution Lies

It was not until the mid-1970s that the Field Museum [of Natural History in Chicago] removed their old display of the apish Neandertals and replaced them with the tall, erect Neandertals that are there today. What did they do with the old display? Did they throw it on the trash heap where it belonged? No. They moved the old display to the second floor and placed it right next to the huge Apatosaurus dinosaur skeleton where more people than ever—especially children—would see it. They labeled it “An alternate view of Neandertal.” It was not an alternate view. It was a wrong view. So much for the self-correcting mechanism in science as far as Neandertal is concerned.

Evolutionism is Nonsense

[Phillip E.] Johnson [in his book Darwin On Trial] concludes that: (1) Evolution is grounded not on scientific fact but on a philosophical belief called naturalism; (2) The belief that a large body of empirical evidence supports evolution is an illusion; (3) Evolution is itself a religion; (4) If evolution were a scientific hypothesis based upon a rigorous study of the evidence, it would have been abandoned long ago; and (5) Since atheism is a basic supposition in the evolutionary process, it cannot be drawn as a conclusion from it.

Evolution Can’t Be Proven

It’s hard to believe that Sagan delivered his lecture with a straight face. He believed, like others in the scientific establishment believe, that evolution is “science.” No one it that establishment is allowed to challenge evolution. Evolution is no observable. Evolutionists often appeal to the authority of the scientific community regarding the fact of evolution. And there are no repeatable experiments that are able to confirm evolution.

The Duties of Wives and Husbands

Wives—you have a role as protector in your marriage. You must guard your heart from being led away through novels, magazines, and other forms of entertainment that blur your perception of reality and put unfair expectations on your husband. Instead you must do your part in helping him feel strong, while also avoiding talk-show thinking that can lure your attention away from your family. “The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish tears it down with her own hands.” (Proverbs 14:1)


Men—you are the head of your home. You are the one responsible before God for guarding the gate and standing your ground against anything that would threaten your wife or marriage. This is no small assignment. It requires a heart of courage and a head for preemptive action. Jesus said, “If the head of the house had know at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broke into” (Matthew 24:13). This role is yours. Take it seriously.

To Love Is to Be Vulnerable

There is no safe investment. To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket — safe, dark, motionless, airless — it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The alternative to tragedy, or at least the risk of tragedy, is damnation. The only place outside Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers and perturbations of love is Hell.

The Worst Enemy of Blacks is LEFTISM

“The worst enemy that the Negro [has],” said Malcolm X, “is this white man that runs around here drooling at the mouth professing to love Negros and calling himself a liberal. It is following these white liberals that has perpetuated problems that Negros have. If the Negro wasn’t taken, tricked or deceived by the white liberal, then Negros would get together and solve our own problems. I only cite these things to show you that in America, the history of the white liberal has been nothing but a series of trickery designed to make Negros think that the white liberal was going to solve our problems.”

American Sports Is Immersed in LEFTISM

The entire American sports world—a culture that traditionally celebrates victors, meritocracy, colorblindness, and patriotism—has suddenly immersed itself in black victimization and left-wing radicalism. This immersion threatens to do permanent damage to American culture as a whole. It has certainly undermined national pride. A country that no longer believes in its founding ideals cannot prosper and survive.

China Controls the NBA

Look at how China, with its 1.4 billion consumers, rules the National Basketball Association and its de facto parent company, Nike, the same way it rules Hollywood. Access to China’s consumers and Asia’s cheap labor (even sometimes slave labor) is the key to Nike’s economic growth. The Portland-based shoe and apparel manufacturer generates $40 billion a year in revenue. Its global reach, agenda, and revenue streams dictate the strategy of the $8-billion-a-year NBA. Many are unaware that Nike, and not the NBA, controls basketball. One could make a fair argument that the NBA is nothing more than the in-house marketing department of Nike.

Modesty

It is because our sexuality is a gift from God that it must be protected with God’s own guidelines. This is precisely why modesty is important. We veil our sexuality behind modest attire and behavior, not because our sexuality is ugly but because it is beautiful.

“Emotional Purity”?

Just because a person feels an attraction that will not culminate in marriage does not make those emotions impure. “Emotional purity” is therefore a bad term since it presupposes that there is something impure or wrong about these emotions, as if to have such feelings defiles a person in the same way as sexual promiscuity.

Robin Phillips, The Way of a Man With a Maid, pg.77

NOTE: “Emotional purity” is the buzz-phrase for Bill Gothard and others of his ilk which promote the “courtship”  and “betrothal” models rather than allowing dating.

Choices in Marriage

A man who falls in love with a woman quite effortlessly will find the love destroyed if he constantly acts selfishly rather than choosing to act charitably towards her. Thus, in marriage a couple’s intimacy is either maintained or destroyed by the choices made in the area of life.

Don’t Be a Snowflake

If passive objects bother you, it’s because you let them bother you--and that’s on you. It is not your fault some racist back in the 1930s paid for a statue of Stonewall Jackson because he wanted to intimidate black people. But it’s your responsibility to keep it from affecting the things you want to do to be successful.

By taking responsibility for your own state of mind, you abandon the idea of victim hood, the concept that other people are capable of holding you back and that society is fixed to prevent you from succeeding.

The victimhood mentality is completely incompatible with the sense of responsibility that creates success. It’s a handicap, but unlike a physical or mental disability, it’s avoidable. …

The victimhood mentality is like black mold in the basement of a house--once even a little bit takes hold, it starts to spread and eat away at structures. And there is only one person who can really protect you from its deleterious affects: you.
