A fundamental problem for Mr. Darwin is how he came to such a conclusion. A materialistic, evolutionary-based worldview can hardly account for something so complex as moral reasoning, let alone complex philosophical argumentation. An uncreated universe lacking a final cause, viz., something towards which it is directed, is necessarily purposeless. How, then, and why, should I trust the chemical reactions in Mr. Darwin’s brain? (That is- if I were free to do so)
Also, I disagree with his understanding of Scripture. The Catholic Church alone was given the authority to hand down definitive moral judgements on certain Scriptures: among these I do not find any evidence of sexism or racism.
I agree with your statement about how ‘A materialistic, evolutionary-based worldview can hardly account for something so complex as moral reasoning’, however, this quote was not from Charles Darwin. It was from a guy named James Randi, a magician and escape artist (great source). Darwin was not alive for the Holocaust.
Yep. It’s James Randi. He gives a great interview.
