Abortion advocates deny science
In recent weeks, we are seeing a kind of science denial by abortion advocates in Missouri that is normally the prevue of Darwinists. The state legislature has recently passed a bill that actually recognizes the scientific fact that life begins at conception.
Senate Bill 793, which adds new regulations to the state’s 24-hour informed consent law for abortions, states that “the life of each human being begins at conception.” It also declares that “abortion will terminate the life of a separate, unique, living human being.” (Source 1) (Source 2)
As you can imagine, that law didn’t sit too well with pro-aborts. So, taking a page out of the Darwinist playbook, they claimed that the scientific evidence (confirmed by many medical textbooks on prenatal development) isn’t really science at all. It is religion. I’m not kidding.
But of course, what else could they say? After all, they can’t admit that the facts are true. The implications of the facts are so horrifying, they must be denied, no matter what.
(Click here for a paper that summarizes statements from medical school textbooks, scientists, and even pro-abortion philosophers, all confirming that life begins at conception.)
People deny science when it challenges their own religion or some other deeply-held belief. Did you watch “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed”? If you didn’t, shame on you. BTW, if every child in your church doesn’t see it once a year, then shame on you. (Yes, I said you.)
Anyway, in this movie, the great Darwinist Richard Dawkins is interviewed by intelligent design (ID) proponent Ben Stein. The idea of an intelligent Designer/Creator is so horrifying to Dawkins, any evidence for it must be denied or ignored, no matter what. Darwinists must pretend that such evidence isn’t really science at all. It is religion.
But Dawkins has a problem because Darwinism can’t begin to explain how highly complex cells got here in the first place. Cells are vastly more complex than was ever imagined, and Darwinism just doesn’t explain it. So Dawkins has to speculate. In a moment of candor not likely to be repeated anytime soon, he suggests that one possible explanation might be that space aliens planted cellular life here on Earth. I’m not lying; watch the movie.
Lemme get this straight. According to Dawkins, it’s entirely plausible that we all evolved from the protozoa that came from the bowels of some space alien who stopped off at Planet Earth for a potty break on his way to the Delta Quadrant. But it’s NOT plausible that we were created by a Creator God. Riiiiight.
And they say this stuff with a straight face.
