By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.
— Psalm 33:6
Evolution simply says that the whole universe is made up of nothing but matter; that matter, time, and chance—the trinity of materialism—have brought all things into existence and, therefore, there is no God. A great multitude of people believe this because it is what they have been taught. The results of this teaching have been devastating.
The root of the problem of most of the great ills that have afflicted society and still afflict it today is the teaching of evolution. It has been called “The Big Lie.” It has deceived hundreds of millions of people and has probably brought about more deaths than any other view in the history of the world.
For example, Adolf Hitler and the Nazis were committed Darwinists. They were trying to speed up evolution by creating a master race. They exterminated millions of “undesirables” because they viewed them as genetically inferior—this included Jews (the largest sub-group of victims of the holocaust), Gypsies, Slavs, and others. The holocaust was “Darwinism on steroids.”
But God has revealed Himself in His creation and in His Word. What a difference a worldview can make in society!
