In God We Trust
2008 | Volume I,
the Liberal Worldview
“BECAUSE evolution explains the origins of life, THEREFORE there is no need for God!”
What sort of logic is this? It’s the same logic that says “BECAUSE my grandmother doesn’t have any wheels, THEREFORE she’s not a wagon!” The logic is obviously flawed because there is no scientific connection between grandma and wagons, any more than there is a scientific connection between evolution and the origins of life. Why not? For two reasons: 1) The origins of life are to this day unknown—there isn’t a scientist alive who can explain the origins of life on earth. 2) Evolution doesn’t try to explain the origins of life—it presupposes existing life forms and tries to explain how they became so varied. (The branch of science that investigates the origins of life is referred to as biogenesis, not evolution.) So then here also, what the liberal left holds up as the holy grail of its atheistic religion is contradicted, not by the “silly arguments of backward Christians,” but by the arguments of science itself. Here are those arguments (read them carefully):
Darwinian evolution presupposes natural selection....
Natural selection presupposes variation (something to select from)....
Variation presupposes replication....
Replication presupposes existing DNA (life’s blueprint)....
DNA presupposes existing, viable, replicating life forms, the origins of which are to this day unknown.
Do you see the contradiction? If the origins of life had been explained by evolution, the logic of the liberal left might have had a leg to stand on. However, neither the origins of life are known, nor is it even the business of evolution to try to explain them. Darwinian evolution presupposes existing life forms and then tries to explain the branching mechanisms that occurred after the initial jump-starting of life. And what about those branching mechanisms? Does the existence of branching mechanisms contradict the Bible? Of course not! In his book entitled America’s Real War, Rabbi Daniel Lapin puts the issue to rest:
For purposes of trying to clarify the cultural tug-of-war, we need only ask the question: Did we get here by a process of unaided materialistic evolution or did God arrange it? Did we come from a Creator or from apes?1
On the surface of it, at least, the liberal worldview appears imposing, powerful, sophisticated, tolerant, outwardly “scientific,” “cultured,” and “elegant”; inwardly, however, it is seething with national and commercial rivalries, despair, futility, foolishness, and falsehood.
In God We Trust by Victor Shane was written to expose the sham and error that underlies modern-day liberalism, arming those of you on the forefront of the culture war with the rational wherewithal to restore this great nation to the dignity of her origins in God.
1. Rabbi Daniel Lapin, America’s Real War (Sisters, Oregon: Multnomah Publishers, Inc.,1999), 51.
What is America’s culture war really all about?
Who are the warring factions and what do they really want?
What set of beliefs drives the ideology of the conservative right?
What set of beliefs drives the ideology of the liberal left?
How do these beliefs divide America when it comes to:
As the culture war reaches its boiling point, In God We Trust by Victor Shane provides answers to the above questions along with winning strategies intended to restore America to the dignity of her origins in God.
“Most great movements of history have launched only after one great book has stirred the hearts of men. Such a book is In God We Trust by Victor Shane which makes the moral argument for America’s third great religious reawakening. When the battle is ultimately won and civilization is successfully defended, history will remember the book that started it all.”
