Charles Darwin Step 1 Excite Brainstorm and make a list of everything you know about Charles Darwin and his ideas. What was significant about the Voyage of the Beagle? What was Darwin s theory of natural selection? What is the meaning of survival of the fittest? (if you don t know, guess) How did Darwin s ideas influence the Victorian era? How do they influence our times? Step 2 Examine Over 150 years ago, a British scientist, Charles Robert Darwin ( ) wrote The Origin of Species. He laid the foundation of modern evolutionary theory with his concept that God did not create things; they arose through natural processes. He taught that microbes, over billions of years, changed into trees, animals, and men. His work was of major influence on the life and earth sciences. There are three major problems with Darwin s theory of evolution. #1. A thing cannot evolve from nothing. If there was nothing in the begining how did something evolve? #2. There is no scientific law for non-living things coming to life. A tree or a rock cannot become an animal. #3. There is no fossil record to prove a creature turned naturally into a completely different kind. There are missing links. There are no fossils representing evolving species making the leap from ape to man (although several hoaxes that attempted to show a monkey to man fossils but all later proved to be hoaxes) Today our museums contain in excess of 250,000 56 An Internet Linked Unit Study different fossil species represented by tens of millions of catalogued fossils (the Smithsonian Natural Museum contains 40 million fossils). 1 But not one of these fossils shows a concrete transition from one species to another. Darwin s work was far more than a biological concept; the theory of evolution constitutes the underpinnings of a dishonest philosophy that has held sway over a great number of people since its introduction. For example, Karl Marx taught that Darwin s theory provided a solid ground for materialism and thus for communism. Darwin was well aware that his theory faced many problems. He confessed this in his book in the chapter Difficulties of the Theory. Darwin s ideas were theorized and used as important scientific ground for racism. Darwinism was even adapted to the social sciences, and turned into a conception that came to be called social Darwinism. Social Darwinism contends that existing human races are located at different rungs of the evolutionary ladder, and that the European races were the most advanced of all. Nazism openly proclaimed its dependence on Darwin. 1 According to Nazism s interpretation of social Darwinism, it was right and moral for the strongest race to survive; to have pity for the weak was to defy nature s laws. Research Charles Darwin s theory. Use any resource (an encyclopedia, a nonfiction book, or the Internet). We recommend the following: Books Unlocking the Mysteries of Creation k d BCRead: Good Science Bad Theory (64-96). It Couldn t Just Happen k d BCRead: The Mystery of the Moths (73-81). Also see pages and B The Lie: Evolution k d Read: Chapter 8 The Evils of Evolution (83-96). This chapter reveals how the growing acceptance of atheistic evolution has resulted in many rejecting God as Creator. Over the years, many have used evolutionary theory to justify abortion, communism, Nazism, drug-abuse, homosexual practices, and worse. Increase in the popularity of evolutionary theory has gone hand-in-hand with the increase in popularity of these social issues. While evolutionary theory is not to blame for the social issues of society, it has become the justification for lending respectability to such social attitudes. The ultimate cause of these problems is the rejection of God as Creator. Resources recommended in d several lessons, s several units, oh other HOW Units. k Key Resource (see page 15). Heart of Wisdom Publishing 57 BDarwin s Enigma by Luther Sunderland Description: In this book, the author maintains that the philosophy of Charles Darwin is built on carefully constructed lies, and that, in his opinion, there are more problems than solutions with the theory of natural selection. (August 1998) Master Books; ISBN: BDarwin s Dangerous Idea: Evolution and the Meanings of Life by Daniel Clement Dennett Description: One of the best descriptions of the nature and implications of Darwinian evolution ever written, it is firmly based in biological information and appropriately extrapolated to possible applications to engineering and cultural evolution. Dennett s analysis of the objections to evolutionary theory are unsurpassed. Extremely lucid, wonderfully written, and scientifically and philosophically impeccable. Highest Recommendation! (Amazon review). (June 1996) Touchstone Books; ISBN: X. BDarwin on Trial by Phillip E. Johnson Description: Johnson, a Berkeley law professor, looks logically at the evidence for evolution. He finds that many scientists have prematurely accepted Darwin s theory as fact and then unsuccessfully scrambled to find evidence for it. Johnson maintains that although numerous difficulties have mounted for evolutionary theory, these scientists have clung to the theory out of fear of encouraging religious fundamentalism, and in the process have turned belief in Darwinism into their religion. Thought provoking and easy to read. Unquestionably the best critique of Darwinism I have ever read. Michael Denton, author of Evolution: A Theory in Crisis. Paperback pages 2nd edition (November 1993) Intervarsity Pr; ISBN: Internet Sources IWhat is Darwinism? Description: This paper was originally delivered as a lecture at a symposium at Hillsdale College, in November Papers from the Symposium were published in the collection Man and Creation: Perspectives on Science and Theology.

Johnson, the author of Darwin on Trial, a work which contends that theories of evolution are based on philosophical naturalism. This article is a rebuttal to the pro-evolution thesis The Blind Watchmaker. IThe Effect of Darwinism on Morality and Christianity Description: Article from the Institute for Creation Research. IThe Church of Darwin Description: Article by Phillip E. Johnson, professor of law at the University of California, Berkeley, and the author of Darwin on Trial. IThe Five Crises in Evolutionary Theory Description: Article from the Probe Ministries. vfrom a Frog to a Prince Description: From a Frog to a Prince conclusively shows that there is no mechanism for evolution, and that life could only evolve by chance in fairy tales, not in the real world of true science. Length: Twenty-seven minutes. Order from Institute for Creation Research: ; Audience: Jr. High- Adult. vthe Origin of Mankind Description: Even before they enter school, children are taught via cartoons, comic strips, toys, and children s books that they evolved from ape-like creatures. They are programmed to believe that they are just a little higher on the evolutionary tree than other animals. This unbiblical world view becomes so thoroughly reinforced that most young people, upon reaching the high school and college years, find it nearly impossible to think of earth history and man s origin without thinking from within the confines of an evolutionary framework. This important film dispels the widely propagated ape-men myth by uncovering the errors, hoaxes, and misinformation about the missing links in man s ancestry. There is still no solid evidence that humans evolved from animals that one species somehow transformed into a completely different species. The facts of nature suggest that man existed from the beginning. The Bible demands it. Don t allow the evolutionary world view to compromise your judgement any longer!

Leave a large amount of space between them. Then begin reading the suggested resources about Darwin. As you read, fill in the spaces with answers to the questions. Look at the basic facts and choose the one that is the most important. Use this as the first sentence of your report. Explain the most important facts first, then you can move on to the less important facts, and include details. Include the differences between creationism and Darwinism. Minimum 300 words. Share with a friend or family member what you have learned about Charles Darwin and his influence.
