Oor Darwin, ateiste, kommuniste en 'body counts'

Ek het onlangs afgekom op 'n aantal interessante aanhalings van bekende ateiste/kommuniste in veral die ou VSSR en Sjina rondom Darwin, die wetenskap en geloof. Lees gerus...

"Darwin's book is very important and serves me as a basis in natural science for the class struggle in history."- Karl Marx

"Darwinism, which explained the evolution of species through quantitative transformations passing into qualitative, was the highest triumph of the dialectic in the whole field of organic matter.... Marx, who in distinction from Darwin was a conscious dialectician, discovered a basis for the scientific classification of human societies in the development of their productive forces and the structure of the relations of ownership which constitute the anatomy of society."- Leon Trotsky, The ABC of Materialist Dialectics

“The Party cannot be neutral towards religion, and it conducts anti-religious propaganda against all religious prejudices because it stands for science, whereas religious prejudices run counter to science, because all religion is the antithesis of science. Cases such as occur in America, where Darwinists were prosecuted recently, cannot occur here because the Party pursues a policy of defending science in every way.”- Josef Stalin, J.V. Stalin Complete Works Volume 10, p. 138

"Chinese socialism is founded upon Darwin and the theory of evolution."- Mao

Nou kyk, as manne soos Stalin, Lenin, Mao en Marx met goedkeuring en lyk my sonder voorbehoud Darwin se lof besing, dan moet mens begin wonder. En toe kom ek op die volgende brokkie inligting af:

"With recent documents uncovered for the Maoist and Stalinist regimes, it now seems the high end of estimates of 250 million dead (between 1900-1987) are closer to the mark. The Stalinist Purges produced 61 million dead and Mao's Cultural Revolution produced 70 million casualties. These murders are all upon their own people! This number does not include the countless dead in their wars of outward aggression waged in the name of the purity of atheism's world view. China invades its peaceful, but religious neighbor, Tibet; supports N. Korea in its war against its southern neighbor and in its merciless oppression of its own people; and Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge kill up to 6 million with Chinese support. All of these actions done "in the name of the people" to create a better world. "

Miskien moet mens bekommerd raak oor die 'opkoms' van ongelowiges. Praat van 'n gebrek aan 'n morele kompas!

Moet ook nie vergeet hoe Darwin se teorieë later die oorsaak was van Herr Hitler se onbevange wreedaardigheid wat gelei het tot die uitwissing van 10-15 miljoen Jode nie...

Ek glo nie die oubaas sou ooit in sy wildste nagmerries kon droom oor die katestrofiese gevolge wat sy teorieë sou hê in die hande van latere gewetenlose politieke diktators/ateïste nie...;

"Among German historians, there's really not much debate about whether or not Hitler was a social Darwinist. He clearly was drawing on Darwinian ideas. It drove pretty much everything that he did. It was not just a peripheral part of his ideology."
-Richard Weikart, author of From Darwin to Hitler.

Ja-nee, uit 'n geskiedkundige oogpunt is dit duidelik dat regeringsvorme wat ateisties/humanisties georienteerd is/was, gewoonlik lei tot totalitere state.

Mens kan op 'n kleiner skaal hierdie totalitere neigings ook raaksien in Dawkins en kie.

Ek dink dat fundamentele/evangeliese ateiste gevaarlik is.
