Discovery Institute’s Klinghoffer: ‘Darwin’s Tree of Death’
I may have jumped the gun when I pronounced the ICR’s suit against Texas the “ludicrous creationist news of the day.”
Because Discovery Institute “senior fellow” David Klinghoffer’s latest article is so insanely over the top, it seems like a parody.
But it’s not.
The image, and today’s gruesome Columbine anniversary, provide an occasion to reflect on Darwinian evolution’s social consequences, from school shootings to Nazi racism and more.
Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution with its Tree of Life is applauded by most sophisticated Americans and Europeans as a scientific idea pure and simple, without the aura of dread and terror that, properly, should surround it in our minds.
Good. Freaking. Grief.
