Huxley on Why People Believe Evolution

One of my kids is learning about the classification of animal life: Family, Genus, Phyla, all that stuff that seems like you learned in a past life.

What is interesting about animal classification is that they all fit nicely into their little spot. There are no grey areas.

It seems as if there would be grey areas if evolution were true. We keep being told that species evolved into other species, and yet all species are in their neat little species box and there is no sloppy species we don’t know what to do with.

Evolution has yet to find any proof whatsoever that a species has ever turned into another species. Sure, moths change colors and finch beaks get bigger or smaller, but where’s the proof that moths turned into finches or anything similar?

Nowhere. Yet everyone believes this. Evolution can not be proven. There is nothing in the fossil record that proves it. There is no experimentation in a lab that proves it.

Even evolutionists admit it can’t be proven every time they tell you, “It takes millions of years for these changes to occur.” The process is so slow, they argue, it can’t actually be seen.

Which is another way of saying, “There is no proof this is happening.”

So, why do so many so readily accept evolution? Here’s an idea.

Julian Huxley was a leading evolutionist and proponent of natural selection in the 20th century, and the grandson of T. H. Huxley, Darwin’s “Bull Dog.” Listen to his quote and see if maybe you can detect a reason why people gravitate toward evolution even if it has no proof.

Darwinism removed the whole idea of God as the creator of organisms from the sphere of rational discussion. Darwin pointed out that no supernatural designer was needed; since natural selection could account for any known form of life, there was no room for a supernatural agency in its evolution…. The earth was not created; it evolved. So did all the animals and plants that inhabit it, including our human selves, mind and soul as well as brain and body. So did religion…. Darwinism removed the whole idea of God as the creator of organisms from the sphere of rational discussion

He also went on to say, “The reason we accepted Darwinism even without proof, is because we didn’t want God to interfere with our sexual mores.”

That pretty much sums it up.
