Conservatives are right about one thing. Darwin's Theory of Evolution is Wrong.
According to Darwin's theory, man has ascended from monkeys and apes. Apes were our ancestors, and the history of the world is a history of constant progress and evolution in the brainpower and abilities of man. In the theory of evolution, man is perpetually evolving, developing, progressing, improving.
Of course, Darwin was able to create such an optimistic theory because he was writing in the middle of the 19th century when it looked as though man were indeed progressing and moving forward intellectually.
Would he have been so confident about human progress today, had he lived following a century of Hitler, Stalin, Tojo, Saddam Hussein, Pol Pot and other mass murderers?
Take an even better example -- the United States. Eleven score and seven years ago, our nation was created by political thinkers such as Jefferson, Adams, Madison, Franklin, Hamilton, Paine, Hancock, Jay, etc.
Who are our political pundits today -- Limbaugh, Hannity, Scarborough, O'Reilly, Coulter, Savage, Chris Wallace, Brit Hume, etc., etc., ad infinitum and ad nauseum.
The very fact that these are America's current political commentators shows that Darwin's Theory of Evolution is working in reverse. What is actually occurring is Devolution, as our people regress to below the level of apes and monkeys, and we rapidly turn ourselves back into a pile of primordial slime.
If these are the people we listen to every day, then the very existence of all these conservative propagandists shows that, in Clarence Thomas's immortal phrase, "We ain't evolving". (That may be the only intelligent thing Justice Thomas ever said).
We are living through Evolution in Reverse -- and at very high speed.
