The life of Richard Darwin

Post  Admin on Wed Nov 21, 2012 8:47 pm

Alfred Russell Wallace (1823-1913) is considered
to be the man who developed the theory which *Darwin
published. *Wallace was deeply involved in spiritism at
the time he formulated the theory in his Ternate Paper,
which *Darwin, with the help of two friends (*Charles
Lyell and *Joseph Hooker), pirated and published under
his own name. *Darwin, a wealthy man, thus obtained the
royalties which belonged to Wallace, a poverty-ridden
theorist. In 1980, *Arnold C. Brackman, in his book, A
Delicate Arrangement, established that Darwin plagiarized
Wallace’s material. It was arranged that a paper by Darwin
would be read to the Royal Society, in London, while
Wallace’s was held back until later. Priorities for the ideas
thus having been taken care of, Darwin set to work to prepare
his book.
In 1875, Wallace came out openly for spiritism and
Marxism, another stepchild of Darwinism. This was
Wallace’s theory: Species have changed in the past, by
which one species descended from another in a manner
that we cannot prove today. That is exactly what modern
evolution teaches. Yet it has no more evidence supporting
the theory than Wallace had in 1858 when he devised the
theory while in a fever.
In February 1858, while in a delirious fever on the
24 The Evolution Cruncher
island of Ternate in the Molaccas, Wallace conceived
the idea, “survival of the fittest,” as being the method
by which species change. But the concept proves
nothing. The fittest; which one is that? It is the one that
survived longest. Which one survives longest? The fittest.
This is reasoning in a circle. The phrase says nothing
about the evolutionary process, much less proving it.
In the first edition of his book, Darwin regarded “natural
selection” and “survival of the fittest” as different concepts.
By the sixth edition of his Origin of the Species, he
thought they meant the same thing, but that “survival of
the fittest” was the more accurate. In a still later book (Descent
of Man, 1871), Darwin ultimately abandoned
“natural selection” as a hopeless mechanism and returned
to Lamarckism. Even Darwin recognized the
theory was falling to pieces. The supporting evidence just
was not there.
*Charles Darwin (1809-1882) was born into wealth
and able to have a life of ease. He took two years of medical
school at Edinburgh University, and then dropped out.
It was the only scientific training he ever received. Because
he spent the time in bars with his friends, he barely
passed his courses. Darwin had no particular purpose in
life, and his father planned to get him into a nicely paid job
as an Anglican minister. Darwin did not object.
But an influential relative got him a position as
the unpaid “naturalist” on a ship planning to sail
around the world, the Beagle. The voyage lasted from
December 1831 to October 1836.
It is of interest that, after engaging in spiritism, certain
men in history have been seized with a deep hatred of
God and have then been guided to devise evil teachings,
that have destroyed large numbers of people, while others
have engaged in warfare which have annihilated millions.
In connection with this, we think of such known spiritists
as *Sigmund Freud and *Adolf Hitler. It is not commonly
known that *Charles Darwin, while a naturalist aboard
the Beagle, was initiated into witchcraft in South

America by nationals. During horseback travels into
the interior, he took part in their ceremonies and, as a
result, something happened to him. Upon his return to
England, although his health was strangely weakened,
he spent the rest of his life working on theories to destroy
faith in the Creator.
After leaving South America, Darwin was on the
Galapagos Islands for a few days. While there, he saw some
finches which had blown in from South America and
adapted to their environment, producing several sub-species.
He was certain that this showed cross-species evolution
(change into new species). But they were still finches.
This theory about the finches was the primary evidence
of evolution he brought back with him to England.
Darwin, never a scientist and knowing nothing about
the practicalities of genetics, then married his first cousin,
which resulted in all seven of his children having physical
or mental disorders. (One girl died after birth, another at
10. His oldest daughter had a prolonged breakdown at 15.
Three of his children became semi-invalids, and his last
son was born mentally retarded and died 19 months after
His book, Origin of the Species, was first published
in November 1859. The full title, On the Origin of the
Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation
of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life, reveals
the viciousness of the underlying concept; this concept led
directly to two of the worst wars in the history of mankind.
In his book, Darwin reasoned from theory to facts,
and provided little evidence for what he had to say.
Modern evolutionists are ashamed of the book, with its
ridiculous arguments.
Darwin’s book had what some men wanted: a clear
out-in-the-open, current statement in favor of species
change. So, in spite of its laughable imperfections, they
capitalized on it. Here is what you will find in his book:
• Darwin would cite authorities that he did not men-

tion. He repeatedly said it was “only an abstract,” and “a
fuller edition” would come out later. But, although he wrote
other books, try as he may he never could find the proof
for his theories. No one since has found it either.
• When he did name an authority, it was just an opinion
from a letter. Phrases indicating the hypothetical nature of
his ideas were frequent: “It might have been,” “Maybe,”
“probably,” “it is conceivable that.” A favorite of his was:
“Let us take an imaginary example.”
• Darwin would suggest a possibility, and later refer
back to it as a fact: “As we have already demonstrated
previously.” Elsewhere he would suggest a possible series
of events and then conclude by assuming that proved the
• He relied heavily on stories instead of facts. Confusing
examples would be given. He would use specious and
devious arguments, and spent much time suggesting possible
explanations why the facts he needed were not available.
Here is an example of his reasoning: To explain the
fossil trans-species gaps, Darwin suggested that species
must have been changing quickly in other parts of the world
where men had not yet examined the strata. Later these
changed species traveled over to the Western World, to be
found in strata there as new species. So species were changing
on the other side of the world, and that was why species
in the process of change were not found on our side!
With thinking like this, who needs science? But remember
that Charles Darwin never had a day of schooling
in the sciences.
Here is Darwin’s explanation of how one species
changes into another: It is a variation of *Lamarck’s
theory of inheritance of acquired characteristics (*Nicholas
Hutton III, Evidence of Evolution, 1962, p. 138). Calling
it pangenesis, Darwin said that an organ affected by
the environment would respond by giving off particles that
he called gemmules. These particles supposedly helped determine
hereditary characteristics. The environment would

affect an organ; gemmules would drop out of the organ;
and the gemmules would travel to the reproductive organs,
where they would affect the cells (*W. Stansfield, Science
of Evolution, 1977, p. 38). As mentioned earlier,
scientists today are ashamed of Darwin’s ideas.
In his book, Darwin taught that man came from an
ape, and that the stronger races would, within a century or
two, destroy the weaker ones. (Modern evolutionists claim
that man and ape descended from a common ancestor.)
After taking part in the witchcraft ceremonies, not
only was his mind affected but his body also. He developed
a chronic and incapacitating illness, and went to his
death under a depression he could not shake (Random
House Encyclopedia, 1977, p. 768).
He frequently commented in private letters that he
recognized that there was no evidence for his theory,
and that it could destroy the morality of the human
race. “Long before the reader has arrived at this part of
my work, a crowd of difficulties will have occurred to him.
Some of them are so serious that to this day I can hardly
reflect on them without in some degree becoming staggered”
(*Charles Darwin, Origin of the Species, 1860, p.
178; quoted from Harvard Classics, 1909 ed., Vol. 11).
“Often a cold shudder has run through me, and I have asked
myself whether I may have not devoted myself to a phantasy”
