Possible New Law Weakens Natural Selection

Weakens natural selection, what…? Does that mean, South Carolina public schools will be teaching creationism? The Sensuous Curmudgeon views this as undercover attempt by supposed creationists known as  “Discoveroids” who are working knee-deep in bringing forth a law which weakens Natural Selection’s great power!

The law says this in South Carolina says…

“Construct scientific arguments that seem to support and scientific arguments that seem to discredit Darwinian natural selection.”

Even though the The Sensuous Curmudgeon admits there is more than one mechanism in evolution besides natural selection that is believed among evolutionists, still it makes a wild accusation that this law is much broader than that! Here we go with the conspiracy theory without credible evidence.

What is critical thinking to the evolutionist? Well, I went to the page where it supposedly explains it, and all I got was a page filled with creationist attacks in response to what intelligently design proponents have proposed. The play with words used by the blog is because creationism was outlawed in public schools where as intelligent design was only outlawed in one locality. So in other words, if intelligent design was outlawed completely and creationism was not, this blog would be referring to creationism as intelligent design.

So one is reading and reading waiting for this evolutionist to define what critical thinking is, but this article is nothing more than attacking creationism and intelligent design in a conspiracy plot to hijack its belief in what science is and that is natural selection only. It put itself in a box, even supposed other theories that are evolutionary based are not allow in that box. Why?

Because it’s feared that if students are able to study the weaknesses more, it will allow them to doubt evolution and that they say will lead them to creationism. You can feel the fear with the blog’s conclusion…

“So here’s where we end up. Critical thinking (or critical analysis) means starting with a desired conclusion (or worldview, or presupposition) and then criticizing (that’s the “critical” part) any unwanted conclusion that was obtained with another worldview — scientific materialism, inductive reasoning, logical thinking, or whatever term one might prefer. That’s the goal of the enemies of our civilization. Now you know what “critical thinking” is.” 

That is right, if you are critical of natural selection even though you might believe in other mechanisms that supposedly drive evolution, you also become an enemy of our civilization along with creationists and intelligent design proponents. And that is why it claims, critical thinking is a bad idea for evolutionary science.

Only when creationists and intelligent design proponents are not longer living on earth would it be alright to teach critical thinking according to this blog…lol And if not, define critical thinking rather than drumming up some sort of conspiracy theory!

  1. Your use of the neologism “Evolutionist” is a hindrance to being taken seriously. I’m surprised you do not go one step further and call people who accept the Grand Synthesis of descent with variation “Evilutionists”. Scientific theories are not “isms” like communism or conservatism.

  2. Linuxgal,

    Thanks for stopping by…Your reply sounds more like a script that you are just repeating. Are you going to lecture the site in which I was critical of for doing the same thing? They call the Discovery Institute, “Discoveroids”…So you can’t take that viewpoint seriously either, right or are you just a hypocrite?

  3. I am only responsible for the things that I say, and if I was commenting on that site then I would . remind them to use the language of mutual respect and stick with the actual issues as well, whether their viewpoint aligned with mine or not. None of this has to get personal.
