Pat Buchanan: ‘Intelligent Design’ Advocate
When he isn’t writing antisemitic articles blaming high gas prices on Israel and AIPAC, or revisionist history defending Hitler’s invasion of Poland, or appearing on neo-Nazi radio shows, Pat Buchanan likes to attack the theory of evolution: Darwin’s Pyrrhic Victory by Pat Buchanan.
Darwinism claims, for example, that matter evolved from non-matter — i.e., something from nothing — that life evolved from non-life; that, through natural selection, rudimentary forms evolved into more complex forms; and that men are descended from animals or apes.
Now, all of this is unproven theory. And as the Darwinists have never been able to create matter out of non-matter or life out of non-life, or extract from the fossil record the “missing links” between species, what they are asking is that we accept it all on faith. And the response they are getting in the classroom and public forum is: “Prove it,” and, “Where is your evidence?”
And while Darwinism suggests our physical universe and its operations happened by chance and accident, intelligent design seems to comport more with what men can observe and reason to. …
Darwinism is headed for the compost pile of discarded ideas because it cannot back up its claims. It must be taken on faith. It contains dogmas men may believe, but cannot stand the burden of proof, the acid of attack or the demands of science.
Where science says, “No miracles allowed,” Darwinism asks us to believe in miracles.
