Liberty and Darwinism are Opposites

Since proponents of fish-to-firefighter evolution rely on a paradigm of naturalism, they have a heap of trouble explaining the experiences of life that are intangible. I heard a debate between a Christian and an atheist, and the atheist admitted that everything he knows could be wrong in his frame of empiricism. The Christian showed him that he could not account for such things as logic and his worldview is self-refuting. Even though the atheist could be wrong, his "reasoning" maintained that the Christian is also wrong. Such a worldview is unlivable, as things we experience every day, truths of life, cannot be tested and determined in a lab by material means. By what means to materialists determine the soul or free will? What or where is consciousness? They are not a part of the brain. There are some helpful links in "The Quantum Soul?"


Evolutionists cannot reconcile concepts like freedom and liberty with their materialistic worldview.
Declaration of Independence, John Trumbull, 1817-1819
Today, many Americans are celebrating Independence Day. Hopefully, we will reflect on the strong statements that were used by the Founding Fathers in this event. Darwin and his successors promoted natural selection, and had no use for things like love, compassion, human rights, liberty, and so forth. Yet we cherish such concepts, but they have no evolutionary, "scientific", or materialistic basis. In fact, they are contrary to such thinking. Our founders, and many Americans today, acknowledge that freedoms ultimately come from our Creator.

It amazes me that people hold very public protests, write letters, publish newspaper articles, and more to complain about the government. That's freedom of speech. They should learn how to use search engines and learn a bit about history, as there are countries now, and have been in the past, where such actions could get them imprisoned or killed.

We transfer power through our election processes. Other countries have violent overthrows and military actions. By the way, our government is far more stable than other countries. Do some research on how many governments Italy has had, for instance.

There are people in Britain and other places who rail against Americans as stupid and backward (even though we're the leaders in science and technology, as well as human rights). Is it because many of us reject their materialistic, Darwinian views? While many folks strive for political and other kinds of freedoms, the only true freedom is found in being reconciled with our Creator and Redeemer, Jesus Christ.

I'm sending you to an article that was published on July 4, 2018, but I did not see it until later. This post is written on August 19, 2018. It will be interesting to see that what is expressed here, and in that article, are still relevant.
The Darwinian worldview that allegedly freed people from ‘religion’ actually enslaves them to the worst kind of tyranny.

In the United States today, Americans will celebrate Independence Day with parties, barbecues, and fireworks. Hopefully mixed in with the fun is some appreciation for the founding principles of America:
  • All men are created equal
  • Human rights
  • Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
  • Liberty and justice for all
  • E pluribus unum (out of many, one)
  • In God we trust
  • The American dream
All of these ideals are profoundly anti-Darwinian. The secular worldview in vogue today, resting on Darwin’s advocacy of nature run by unguided natural processes, cannot derive any of these. In fact, the opposite is true: secularism undermines every one of these, and historically, has fought against them.

Make It YOUR Independence Day!


Here is a great song, and someone did a great job on the fireworks to make the video.



Listen to our declaration,
Listen to our testament!
We've been given a revelation,
We are sure of where we stand.
So let the banner be unfurled,
We've found the light of hope in a dying world!

Hear the myth of modern man:
"You're the god of your own land".
They call you weak, a spineless fool,
Say you've given up your right to rule.
But I have been to the "Land of Me",
And I know I was never free;
Freedom came when I gave it all away!

That's why I call it independence day!
Call it independence day.
Let the rockets blaze across the sky,
Raise the flag of faith up high,
Let the doubters call it what they may:
It's independence day!

The world can crown another hundred kings,
But I believe in a better dream.
They may call it slavery,
But the biggest chain I knew was me.
So let the idols tumble down,
The walls of lies crumble to the ground,
I know where salvation can be found,
Let the idols tumble down!

That's why I call it independence day!
Call it independence day.
Let the rockets blaze across the sky,
Raise the flag of faith up high,
Let the doubters call it what they may:
It's independence day!

So join us in the celebration,
It's the birth of a holy nation,
As people of light we are proud to say:
"It's independence day!"

That's why I call it independence day!
Call it independence day.
Let the rockets blaze across the sky,
Raise the flag of faith up high,
Let the doubters call it what they may:
It's independence day!

Biblical Roots of America

"The hope of a Christian is inseparable from his faith. Whoever believes in the divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures must hope that the religion of Jesus shall prevail throughout the earth. Never since the foundation of the world have the prospects of mankind been more encouraging to that hope than they appear to be at the present time. And may the associated distribution of the Bible proceed and prosper till the Lord shall have made 'bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God' (Isaiah 52:10)."
— John Quincy Adams




Despite the efforts of revisionists to take away the truth and secularize America, the fact remains immovable that this country was founded on Christian values. Although this country was founded on the Bible, there was never a threat that people would be forced to worship at a state-run religious establishment; people were free to believe or disbelieve as they chose. Americans would do well to remember this as we celebrate the anniversary of our independence.
As the nation celebrates American liberty on the Fourth of July each year, it would be appropriate for all Americans (including those who have come here from other nations in search of that same freedom), first of all, to reflect on the Christian foundations—including genuine creationism—on which our nation was built.
In a previous article on this theme (see the July 1996 Back to Genesis article, “Sweet Land of Liberty”), it was noted that many of the founding fathers of our country were strict creationists and that this fact was reflected in the Declaration of Independence itself. In this article, several more testimonies are cited in support of this vitally important fact.

Atheist July 4 "Celebration" Thwarted — By The People


An atheist group has funded a $23,000 campaign to fly banners across the skies of America on Fourth of July saying “God-LESS America” and “Atheism is Patriotic.

The stunt is being organized by the group American Atheists, which plans to see planes fly banners over 27 locations on July 4th.

Flights were originally scheduled to fly over Biloxi, Miss. beaches, the Texas rangers pre-game, a zoo in Toledo, Ohio, the Independence Day parade in Rapid City, S.D., and more.

However...
A massive 80 percent of pilots from an aircraft advertising company have refused to fly banners by an atheist group saying “God-LESS America” and “Atheism is Patriotic”, on Fourth of July.
Read the rest of "Pilots Refuse to Fly Atheist 'God-LESS America' Banners" here.  
Proverbs 4.16 ESV

Addendum: This comment was given to me directly:
It's hard to imagine a group destined for more severe punishment than those living in the greatest country on earth and still considering its greatness a "coincidence" (at least with the meaning of not requiring God). Those who ignore the truth that God works in the affairs of men are destined to get what is ultimately their *desire*, not their *belief*: Godlessness. They won't enjoy the horrible and eternal form it will take, though.

History of the Fourth of July


It’s sad that many Americans do not know about our politics or history. Who much do you know? What does the 4th of July mean to you and do you know when the first year 4th of July was celebrated?
