Eugenics: Eliminating Human Weeds

Matthew 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

According to the Lord Jesus, we are to discern good from bad by the fruit produced. While I often expose the evil fruit of Darwinism, which is a fruit of old-earth beliefs, in this writing I want to discuss two of the tainted fruits growing from the corrupt combination of millions of years leading to Darwinism: abortion and eugenics.

Sir Francis Galton is known as the Father of Eugenics. The word comes from a combination of Greek words which mean well-born and is defined as the study to improve the physical and mental characteristics of the human race.

So who would argue with that?!

Well, hold on for a moment because, though eugenics may sound delightful on the surface, history reveals its fruit includes the pre-mature death of millions of people in order to eliminate the unworthy. Abortion is one of the primary tools for eugenicists and, so you are aware, Sir Francis Galton was Charles Darwin’s cousin.

Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood in 1916 to eliminate what she called “human weeds” such as the disabled and “inferior races like Jews and Blacks.” Today, Planned Parenthood rakes in millions of dollars via the abortion industry and, though blacks make up just 14% of the U.S. population, they total 36% of U.S. abortions. Sanger also stated, “I look forward to seeing humanity free…of the tyranny of Christianity.”

Why Christianity? Because the Biblical Worldview holds that human life, from conception, is made in the image of God. Such a view often gets in the way of those who desire to “improve the human race.”

The Nazis put eugenics into practice and two of their specific targets for elimination were Jews and the disabled. The Scientific Origins of National Socialism, written in 1971, stated: “Social Darwinism reached its peak in Nazi Germany under Hitler…the supreme evolutionist and Nazism the ultimate fruit of the evolutionary tree.” However, the article was written before we legalized abortion in America.

Following World War II eugenics became a dirty word, The Annals of Eugenics changed its name to the Annals of Human Genetics while Eugenics Quarterly became the Journal of Social Biology. Sadly, many people today believe certain humans are less worthy of life and eugenics is back in vogue in laboratories and on college campuses around the world. Often cloaked in terms of medical breakthroughs that promise to improve the human race, eugenics has been put into practice once again.

For instance, BreakPoint reported that an ABC News article was touting a prenatal test which detects Downs Syndrome, claiming the procedure would reduce the death of healthy babies. However, as Chuck Colson pointed out, since most women abort babies who have known disabilities, the test will actually increase the number of deaths by abortion.

To employ prenatal testing and abortion to eliminate babies who are deemed by the Secular worldview as human weeds who are less worthy of life is simply eugenics in action. The Biblical Worldview holds that every human life is precious and made in the image of God. This view protects each of us from being deemed to be a human weed.


What’s human chromosome 2 got to do with it?

Darwinists proclaim that human chromosome 2 is proof that we evolved from a primate ancestor. But what do the scientific facts have to say?

There are indeed several physical similarities between ape and man. For example, we each have two arms, two legs, a torso and one head. However, we are very different in many important areas, such as in our mental abilities.  We also only have 46 chromosomes while apes have 48.

It is a scientific fact that chromosomes can fuse together to form one big chromosome, so to explain away the difference in our chromosome counts, Darwinists take a leap of faith. They believe two chromosomes fused together in an unknown primate ancestor to form human chromosome 2. Then they claim this faith-based belief as their great proof for Darwinism. Hmmm.

Let’s get back to the actual science as important facts contradict this biased assumption.  Multiple studies have revealed that sheep which have multiple chromosome fusions are indistinguishable from sheep which do not have the fused chromosomes. What this means is that such fusions do not create new and beneficial genetic information that causes one kind of critter, like an ape, to evolve into another kind, like a human.

Science shows that human chromosome 2 contains complex genetic information that is not found in apes, including many protein coding genes. Likewise, scientists have never shown how such complex genetic information could come about by natural processes.

It is the genetic data that is the big difference between ape and man – not the number of chromosomes holding the data. Afterall, tobacco plants, like apes, also have 48 chromosomes yet no one is claiming that they are close relatives!

In other words, even if human chromosome 2 was the result of a fusion event it would be best explained as the fusion of two human chromosomes, not from a fusion that occurred, once upon a time, in some non-observed primate ancestor.

So what does human chromosome 2 have to do with Darwinism? Absolutely nothing! The bottom line is that people must be careful to distinguish real science from biased Darwinian conjecture because claiming that Human Chromosome 2 is proof of goo-to-the-zoo-to-you evolutionism is nothing more than Humanistic propaganda.


What’s nylon eating bacteria got to do with it?

Back in the 1970’s bacteria were found that could digest nylon. Humanists incorrectly assumed that the bacteria were evolving due to a mutation that had added new and beneficial genetic information to the bacterium’s DNA.  However, by the early 1990’s scientific research had revealed that several types of bacteria have the ability to digest nylon due to a mutation that had caused a loss of function in a protein-degrading enzyme. This loss of genetic information resulted in the enzyme feeding on nylon and this loss was passed from one bacterium to another via plasmid tranfers.

So what is a plasmid transfer? Well, real science has shown that bacteria can transfer small amounts of DNA (known as plasmid transfers) to other bacterium. (Note: this is information transfer, not information creation, as the data must already exist for it to be transferred. Thus genetic transfers have nothing to do with Darwinian evolution). Nylon eating bacteria began as bacteria and ended as bacteria.

So what do nylon eating bacteria have to do with Darwinism? Absolutely nothing!

The bottom line is that people must be careful to distinguish real science from biased Darwinian conjecture because claiming that nylon eating bacteria prove goo-to-the-zoo-to-you evolutionism is nothing more than Humanistic propaganda.
