Another “Darwin Day” Has Come and Gone

Every year around this time I like to post a section from a Salvo interview with John G. Boston Celtics West, author of the book Darwin Day in America. adidas gazelle uomo Some highlights from the interview: So why is your book titled Darwin Day in America?

“Darwin Day” is Charles Darwin’s birthday, February 12. As I explain in my book, there is a growing movement around the world to turn the day into a kind of secular holy day, complete with its own rituals to honor Darwin. adidas gazelle damskie These Darwin Day celebrations expose just how much Darwinian evolution is like a secular religion for many of its proponents. Scarpe Kobe 11 At the same time, Darwin Day provides a metaphor for how our public policy and culture have been influenced over the past century by Darwinian biology and similar kinds of reductionist science. Asics Aoldes In many respects, Darwin Day is every day in America right now, because Darwinism and scientific materialism have reshaped virtually every area of our culture and politics.

. Canotta Los Angeles Lakers . . Nike Air Max 2017 damskie The subtitle of your book asserts that “our politics and culture have been dehumanized in the name of science.” How so?

At the dawn of the 20th century, leading scientists and politicians giddily predicted that modern science—Darwinian biology in particular—would supply solutions to all the intractable problems of American society, from crime to poverty to sexual maladjustment. Mochilas Kanken Mini A new generation of “scientific” experts began treating human beings as little more than animals or machines.

    Actually, I regard it as pro-science. My critique is directed against ideologues in the scientific community who manipulate science for their own ideological agenda and then demonize those who disagree with them rather than respond to their criticisms. nike air max 2017 dames In my view, the real anti-science zealots in our society are the dogmatic materialists who are trying to misuse science as a bludgeon to attack traditional religion and morality.

    Your book criticizes the role of scientific experts in politics. sac à dos fjallraven kanken But shouldn’t public policy be based on the consensus view of science rather than fringe science?

    The consensus view of science is important, and it merits respect. New York Giants Jerseys But the consensus view can be wildly wrong. adidas neo daily team m?skie That’s why policymakers need to listen to thoughtful dissenters on major scientific questions—whether the issue is Darwinian evolution, the extent of global warming, or embryonic stem-cell research. Nike Air Max Italia As my book recounts, throughout history the “consensus” of the scientific community has often embraced what today would be regarded as junk science—from eugenics to lobotomies to Kinsey’s junk research on sexual behavior. Fjallraven Kanken Kids Dissenters in the scientific community have been invaluable in exposing the scientific majority’s blind spots and promoting genuine scientific progress.

    Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer

    This movie about “Dr.” Kermit Gosnell has been made (by the makers of FrackNation). Air Jordan 1 Retro They can’t get it released and shown, yet.

  • nike roshe flyknit hombre The filmmakers will be presenting their story, and book, on January 25, 2017 at the Heritage Foundation in D.C.

    Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer In 2013, Dr. Kermit Gosnell was convicted of killing four people, including three babies, but is thought to have killed hundreds, perhaps thousands more in a 30-year killing spree. Asics Gel lyte 3 Dames ABC News correspondent Terry Moran described Gosnell as “America’s most prolific serial killer.” Gosnell is currently serving three life sentences (without the possibility of parole) for murdering babies and patients at his “House of Horrors” abortion clinic. Gosnell – now a major movie starring Dean Cain (Lois & Clarke) – reveals how the investigation that brought Gosnell to justice started as a routine drug investigation and turned into a shocking unmasking of America’s biggest serial killer. It details how compliant politicians and bureaucrats allowed him to carry out his grisly trade because they didn’t want to be accused of “attacking abortion.” Gosnell also exposes the media cover-up that saw reporters refusing to cover a story that shone an unwelcome spotlight on abortion in America in the 21st Century.

  • At the very least, the horrors revealed have prompted many commentators and lawmakers to reconsider the fine line between late-term abortion and infanticide. Pulling back the curtain on what can—and does—happen in abortion clinics makes the discomfiting reality that abortion is the killing of babies harder to evade.

    Marriage and the Church

    Mark Regnerus has a new article in The Washington Post that is well worth your time: Christians are part of the same dating pool as everyone else. That’s bad for the church.

    Salvo readers may remember reading an interview with Mr. Regnerus a few issues back where he was discussing a different article of his that got quite a lot of buzz. Here’s an excerpt below:

    You wrote an article for Slate titled “Sex Is Cheap: Why Young Men Have the Upper Hand in Bed, Even When They’re Failing in Life.” It was one of Slate’s most downloaded articles ever. Why do you think it was so widely read? And, as a sociologist, why do you think women are so willing to have sex without asking for what they really want, which—speaking generally—is commitment?

    It doesn’t feel like an individual decision to them anymore. And in some ways it’s not. Because when everybody else is doing the same thing, or they perceive that everyone else is doing the same thing, they think their options are really limited. And in many real senses they are. Once upon a time, women used to ostracize other women who would be quicker to sleep with a man than they were. But that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. It signals that any idea of a cartel among women—a monopoly on sexual access—has eroded and all but disappeared. So you ask why women don’t navigate the mating market in a way that is more consonant with their own interests, but it’s easier said than done. They recognize that they have less power than they would like.

    Why was the piece popular? Not because everybody agreed with it, but because everybody has an experience of the mating market. It tapped into something real. More men than women, I think, agreed with it. But I think they have less at stake. It’s harder for women to come to terms with it because it’s depicting their situation as more dire than they wish it to be. We have twice as many women who have not had children by age 40 today as we did as little as thirty years ago, and that’s not because twice as many women didn’t want to have them.
