Darwin Fever Making Us Sick?

The Mysterious Islands, a new documentary shot on the Galapagos Islands, was recently released in conjunction with the 150th anniversary of the publication of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species.

But the new film isn't a celebration of the anniversary, but instead a debunking of Darwin's theories of naturalism and evolution. A film crew, including Dr. John Morris, president of the Institute for Creation Research, visited the Galapagos earlier this year to make the movie.

"The world has Darwin fever, and we think it's making our culture sick," says executive producer Doug Phillips. "Because of the implications of his famous theory of evolution, Darwin was perhaps the most influential man for evil in the last 200 hundred ideas. His ideas have contributed to the rise of Nazism, the proliferation of racism, Marxism, the horrors of eugenics, and abortionism."

The Darwin-Nazism connection was also explored in Expelled a couple years ago.

With documentaries like this being produced, is it any wonder that intelligent people are leaving the churches in droves.

Mark moring above states that this is why intelligent people are leaving the church: You call it intelligent to turn your back on GOD because you want to believe you came from a monkey?

It's intelligent to acknowledge that science is the analytical study of the world around us, and to turn your back on scientific theory is foolish.

Additionally, it doesn't matter what one "wants" to believe, what matters are the opinions one forms when presented with facts and evidence. I have no particular desire or disdain for the belief that I evolved from a monkey, but I believe it to be true because of the overwhelming factual evidence supporting that conclusion.
