This small book was written back in 1991 in answer to a Taiwan University Philosophy professor's constant attack on Christianity. Not only that, but he thought Christianity was Catholicism and also pushed the evolution theory onto the gullible students.
In his class was one Christian that was saved from a Chinese Chick tract. This Christian was deeply hurt by the professor's constant attacks.
For their last term paper they had to write at least ten double spaced pages on any subject and footnote it. If it was written in English they would get a better grade. The Christian asked, "Any subject?" The professor, who had studied philosophy for ten years in America and Europe said, "Any Subject." The student then asked if a foreigner could help? The professor said. "Yes, but you will have to do more than 25 pages if an English speaking foreigner helped."
It was set, and this small book was done in 2 days by Dr. Powell and the Philosophy professor received the Lord about one year later. He said that this small book "contributed to his awakening."
I hope that this small work will be a blessing to you. It is not much, but to a philosophy professor that had taught and been taught nothing but lies, it was quiet devastating!
From the sophists of olden times to the humanists of today, there is an unending chain of misery and pain from the belief of Protagoras that "Man is the measure of all things." 1 He taught there are no absolute truths or eternal standards of right and justice.2 Adolf Hitler was to take this to the fullest meaning by disposing of 6,000,000 Jews! If man is the measure of all things and there are no standards of right and justice, then why condemn Hitler [a Roman Catholic] and his SS leader, Heinrich Himmler [also a Catholic] for following the teachings of the German Philosopher Nietzsche? 3 Hitler and Himmler put into real practice the teachings of Machiavelli, the Catholic Philosopher of Florence, Italy [1469- 1527], "that the ideal ruler must be absolute, and must use any means, however unscrupulous and unethical and however much he may perjure the truth or break promises to accomplish ends." 4 This humanistic teaching along with the teaching of the theory of evolution is destroying the youth of our present world.
For proof one need only to look at America's free sex society to see the judgment of A.I.D.S.5 and an never ending higher divorce rate.
What greatness has Philosophy contributed to the world when compared with true Christianity? One needs only again to look at the greatness of America and remember her founding by peoples fleeing from the terrible death and persecution brought on by the Catholic Church. These peoples resolved never again to become enslaved to a religious system that was content only in being the ruler of the world. They then founded a new nation that was dedicated to the individual rights of all men to freely seek liberty, justice, and the God of the Bible, not the God of the Roman Catholic religion. A nation where religious choice was not stopped or hindered. Now though, America has undergone a great change. This change has been brought about by the philosophical teachings of humanism. The teaching that "if it feels right, then do it." This is one of the great things that philosophy has brought.
5.5In America what used to be called chastity and purity is now called a sex hang-up. What was call righteous living is now called repression. What used to be called disgusting is now called adult pictures and literature. What used to be called immoral is now called being made free from inhibitions. What used to be called sex perversion [homosexual practices] is now called an alternate life-style. What used to be called dirty pictures is now called art. What used to be called Gay Related Immune Deficiency Syndrome [GRIDS] is now called AIDS. This is all due to the philosophical teaching that "man is the measure of all things."
When "man is the measure of all things", there are no moral laws to govern him. He is his own god just as is taught at this very University. Yes, we are taught that we manufacture our own gods in our own minds. Then we are the highest of the creatures and can do as we please. No heaven, no hell, no God, and certainly no judgment before a God that does not exist. So, live life with all the gusto that you can. If it feels good, do it! Hitler did do it, except he did it to the Jews. It felt good to him! Eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow we die. Isn't that what the Epicureans taught?
What good did the philosopher Nietzsche accomplish? Nothing good, but plenty bad. Nietzsche said, "Man should be educated for war and women for the recreation of the warrior." 6 He taught "that natural selection [evolution] should be permitted to operate unhindered in the case of human beings as it does with plants and animals." 7 Nietzsche demanded that the normal supremacy of Christianity and Judaism be overthrown and that humility and pity for the weak were incompetent vices.8 Plainly stated he called white, black and black, white! He died in 1900 after "suffering hopeless insanity for 12 years." 9 Nietzsche's teachings and his basic teaching of a "superhuman or master race with blonde headed children" was implemented by Hitler. Hitler closely followed Nietzsche's philosophy and it gave the world a World War II! This is what philosophy brought to our world! This cannot be denied by anyone that is a student of history.
True Christians [not the Catholic Church with its hundreds of years of documented murder in the name of Christ] are tolerant of philosophy and all other philosophical or religious ideas, yet Nietzsche, as stated on the previous page, wanted to get rid of all Christians. Nietzsche, showing his intolerance for religion, was like most philosophers: not the open minded people they claim to be. Yet, philosophy does have its gods. They may not be called gods, but take the place of gods just the same. Some of these gods are:
1. Socrates [470-399 B.C.], the Greek philosopher, is usually given credit for being the first real philosopher. He was a homosexual who committed suicide after sacrificing a rooster to a snake god.10 He left his wife and children to have sex with young boys11 just like many of the teachers in the American universities now. Some men go into the teaching profession at the college level just to have a never ending supply of young men or women to choose from for their sexual appetites. I can think of one now who is the son of a world famous preacher in Florida.
Philosophy means seeker of wisdom. How is that for a contradiction of terms? If a man really sought knowledge and wisdom he would fear the Lord.12 Fear can be a good reason to depart from evil. Children obey their parents because they fear the punishment for breaking the laws. If not for rules, and punishment the crime rate would be higher.
So when asked what he knew, Socrates replied, "One thing only I know - that I know nothing." 13 Why should this man be set up as one of the gods of philosophy? He was a homosexual 14 [A sex pervert!], deserted his wife and children, sacrificed a male chicken to a snake god, and admitted he knew absolutely nothing! He, when talking about his involvement with young boys said, "Oh rare! I caught a sight of the inwards of his garments and took the flame, then I could no longer contain myself . . . and I felt like I had been overcome by a sort of wild beast appetite." 15 So, dear teacher, you've taught us that Socrates was great! Yes, but a great sexual pervert! No, don't give me Socrates, Plato, or Aristotle, give me the free salvation that comes only through faith by receiving the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ! I do not want to follow someone who knew nothing. I want to follow the one who is all knowing and loved me enough to die for my sins.
Philosophers like to have cute little sayings like "Can God make a rock so big He cannot move it?" The answer is obvious, God would not make a rock that big because it would be against his nature to do so. A person that asks this kind of question shows that he does not understand God nor has studied the Bible!
Communism, as a philosophy, along with Hitler following Nietzsche and linking up with the Catholic Church,16 has given us more death in 90 years than in the previous history of the human race. This is what philosophy has brought us!
Where are the philosophy hospitals for the sick? Where are the philosophy orphanages for the orphans? Where are the philosophers that will stand up and tell us of their lives and families being saved from drugs, alcohol, and lives of crime? For every one you can find [if you can find even one], thousands can be found who have been changed by Jesus from a life of crime and into people that truly benefit society. Philosophers, although not all, tend to think of themselves as great people who really need to be leading society just as was taught by Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle.
Philip Schaff the historian wrote, "This Jesus of Nazareth, without money and arms [weapons], conquered more millions than Alexander, Caesar, Mohammed, and Napoleon; without science and learning, He shed more light on things human and divine than all philosophers and scholars combined; without the eloquence of schools, He spoke such words of life as were never spoken before or since and produced effects which "doing lie beyond the reach of orator or poet; without writing a single line, He set more pens in motion, and furnished themes for more sermons, orations, discussions, learned volumes, works of art, and songs of praise, than the whole army of great men of ancient and modern times." 17
Some may say that Jesus produced the Catholic Church, but they that say this do not read the Bible. The Bible is one of the most anti-Catholic books ever written. The Catholics pray to Mary and say that she was not a sinner, yet in the Bible Mary, herself, said that she needed a Saviour.18
The Catholics teach you must confess your sins to their priests and the Bible says to confess only to God through Jesus Christ.19 The Catholic Church teaches that you must obey her every word and then MAYBE you will go to heaven. Yet the Bible says to receive Jesus Christ by faith 20 and you can know, for sure.21
The Catholic Church is nothing more than a political entity using the name of Jesus to practice the philosophy taught by their Catholic philosopher Machiavelli: to rule by force and do unto others before they do unto you.22
Then came the follower of Nietzsche's "master race" plan. Hitler once said, "I reject that book by Rosenberg. It was written by a Protestant. It is not a party book... as a Catholic I never feel comfortable in the evangelical church or its structures... as for the Jews, I am just carrying on with the same policy which the Catholic Church has adopted for fifteen hundred years, when it has regarded the Jews as dangerous and pushed them into ghettos, etc., because it knew what the Jews were like. I don't put race above religion, but I do see the danger in the representatives of this race for church and state, and perhaps I am doing Christianity a great service." 23 Hitler thought that Christianity was the Roman Catholic Church just like almost everyone of our people in Taiwan. We Chinese seemingly do not see a difference, but there is a big difference between real Biblical Christianity and the Roman Catholic Church's kind of so-called Christianity!
That Catholic Church was deeply involved with Hitler's Third Reich is evident from scores of books written on the subject.
Heinrich Himmler organized the Gestapo 24 according to the Catholic order of the Jesuits. Many other Catholic were given power in the Nazi organization even including Catholic priests.24.5 One of these was Heinrich Himmler's uncle who helped to murder thousands of Jews while he was a priest! 25
Hitler said, "I can see Himmler as our Ignatius of Loyola." 26 Himmler, using many Catholic priests,27 did just as the great murderer Ignatius [a Roman Catholic priest] did. He murdered more than 6,000,000 Jews in the death camps, this does not count millions of Russians! The second inquisition had started!
In Yugoslavia the dreaded "Ustachi" killer squads were made up of Croatian Catholics and Bosian Muslims. Most were commanded by Catholic Jesuit priests. More than one million Orthodox Church members [Serbians] were murdered.28 The Catholic Church used its worldwide influence and network of priests to try to gain support for Germany in America, undermine the French government prior to the German invasion,29 and to goad Hitler into attacking Russia first. The Catholic Church wanted Russia conquered first because she realized Russia was the stronger of the enemies and to destroy the Russian Orthodox Church which had split from the Catholic Church in 1054 A.D. Hitler made the mistake of conquering the rest of Europe first and lost in Russia! The pope was not happy!
This is what happens when power hungry philosophers get total power in politics as well as religion. This is what happens when political philosophy and the Catholic Church come together to carve up the world. That they did team up is evident from these last few pages and from the words of the man who represented Germany when Hitler signed an agreement with the Roman Catholic Church back in 1934. Franz Von Papen, Hitler's ace diplomat, said, "The Third Reich is the first power, which not only recognized, but puts into practice, the high principles of the papacy". 30 Thus Hitler and the Roman Catholic Church [which many mistake for being a Christian Church] came together and put into practice the political and religious philosophy of Machiavelli!
Now that we have seen some of the consequences of philosophy, let us look now at another peculiar belief belonging to philosophy, that is evolution.
"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." 31 This is true or it is false. If false, then the rest of the Bible is also false and we Christians are just as bad off as the philosophers [ha!]. You see, I have lost nothing by receiving Jesus Christ as my Saviour. I have everything to gain and am also a better person for it. But to a person that rejects God there is, by his own admission, NO HOPE!
I do admit that my belief requires faith. Faith in a God that I have never seen. A doctor treats people every day that claim they have pain, yet that doctor has never seen pain! However, the theory of evolution requires not only faith, but almost blind stupidity! Now let us look closer at real facts about this theory!
Many years ago in America the "fruit fly" experiments were started in order to prove evolution. The idea was that if the scientists were able to make a new creature that evolution would be proven. Instead they did not realize that if they succeeded they would only prove that someone with intelligence made it, that the intelligence was the creator, and that they started with an already existing entity, which is more than an evolutionists would admit our own world started with. "Over eighty years of fruit-fly experiments, involving 3,000 consecutive generations, give absolutely no basis for believing that any natural or artificial process can cause an increase in complexity and viability. No clear genetic improvement has ever be observed despite the many unnatural efforts to increase mutation rates." 32
"Heat always flows from hot bodies to cold bodies. If the universe were infinitely old, the temperature throughout the universe should be uniform. Since the temperature of the universe is not uniform, the universe is not infinitely old. Therefore, the universe had a beginning." 33
In 1969, when the Americans first landed on the moon, the spacemen were told that when their craft landed on the moon that it might sink into dust and they might die! It sank into one half inch! "If the moon were billions of years old, it should have accumulated a thick layer of dust from outer space. Before instruments were placed on the moon, scientists were very concerned that our astronauts would sink into a sea of dust--possibly a mile in thickness. This did not happen. There is very little space dust on the moon. In fact, after examining the rocks and dust brought back from the moon, it was learned that only about 1/60th of the inch or so surface layer came from outer space. Recent measurements of the influx rate also do not support the thin layer of meteoritic dust on an old moon, even if this rate were not higher in the past. Of course, the rate of dust accumulation on the moon should have been much greater in the past. Conclusion: The moon is probably quite young." 34 This reminds me of a joke I heard once about how to trap an atheist: Serve him a fine meal, and then ask him if he believes there is a cook? Albert Einstein once wrote, "Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifested in the laws of the universe--a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with modest powers must feel humble." 35
"Naturalism [secular humanism's philosophy] cannot give an adequate account of the origin of life. Naturalism postulates that at some point life arose from nonlife. Spontaneous generation of some variety is therefore required. However, science has long rejected such a hypothesis.
Naturalists typically respond that life in the universe could have occurred by chance because of the vast amount of time - about 20 billion years. However, this begs the question in favor of natural- ism, and as many have pointed out, even this is not enough time. Using Guye's probability figure, even if the possible combinations were produced at the speed of light, it would take 10 billions of years to obtain even one molecule on earth!
More recently astronomer Hoyle and his colleague Wickramasinghe concluded that there is only one chance in 10287 that even a single enzyme could have evolved by random processes, a figure that is 'statistically impossible.' It would require more attempts to form one enzyme than there are atoms in all the stars in all the known galaxies. This statistic was not arrived at by guessing but by computations based on the necessary components of enzymes.
Therefore, according to Hoyle and Wickramasinghe, 'spontaneous generation is impossible, requiring a miracle...
Hubert P. Yockey studied the likelihood that naturalistic processes could account for the origin of life, which would involve some form of spontaneous biogenesis. He concentrated on explanations for the existence of information content in living organisms as contained in DNA. There is more information in the DNA in one human cell than there are in all the books in the Library of Congress, and that one cell contains far more information than there is human knowledge concerning the entire universe!
Yockey concluded that the spontaneous origin of life could not account for the encoding of this tremendous amount of data."36
The noted Philosopher Jean Paul Sartre died in 1981 after calling his closest disciples and wife to his death bed. On his death bed and in front of them, he signed a paper renouncing all of his works and said that he wanted to meet God clean and wished he could take back much of what he had written. His wife and followers promptly deserted him and left him to die by himself. He said, "I do not feel that I am the product of chance, a speck of dust in the universe, but someone who was expected, prepared, prefigured. In short, a king whom only a Creator could put here; the idea of a creating hand refers to God." 37
Immanuel Kant said, "In the world we find everywhere clear signs of an order which can only spring from design - an order realized with the greatest wisdom, and in a universe which is indescribably varied in content and in extent infinite." 38
"If the world's finest minds can unravel only with difficulty the deeper working of nature, how could it be supposed that those workings are merely a mindless accident, a product of blind chance?" 39
Sir Fred Hoyle, British mathematician and astrophysicist, was an atheist for much of his life. In 1981, he published a book with Chandra Wickramasinghe entitled "Evolution from Space". Both Hoyle and Wickramasinghe came to the conclusion that the high degree of order and specificity in the universe, "Demanded a preexisting intelligence." Said Hoyle and Wickramasinghe, "Once we see, however that the probability of life origination at random is so utterly minuscule as to make it absurd, it becomes sensible to think that the favorable properties of physics, on which life depends, are in every respect deliberate. It is, therefore, almost inevitable that our own measure of intelligence must reflect higher intelligence...even to the limit of God."
"Speaking to the subject of chance and higher life forms, Hoyle wrote in Nature magazine [Nov. 12, 1981, p. 105], 'The chance that higher life forms might have emerged in this way is comparable with the chance that a tornado sweeping through a junkyard might assemble a Boeing 747 from the materials therein. ' Hoyle's new 'Scientist' article (Nov. 19, 1981, p. 521 ) on chance and living organisms contained the following observation, 'I don't know how long it is going to be before astronomers generally recognize that the combinatorial arrangement of not even one among the many thousands of biopolymers on which life depends could have been arrived at by natural processes [chance by a series of accidents] here on the earth.' Hoyle argued that there are 2,000 complex enzymes required for a living organism, but not a single one of these could have formed on earth randomly [by chance] even in 20 billion years. Besides enzymes, 20 amino acids and 600 proteins are also required for life. The parameters on the age of the universe range from 20,000 to 20 billion years with the most rabid [a religious fanatic] evolutionists placing life on the earth at 3.5 million years ago. Conclusion: there isn't enough time in the whole physical universe to explain life by chance, accident or randomness." 40 Dr. Hoyle became a believer in God after studying the probability of evolution by using physics and math.
"Astronomers have discovered a gigantic collection of galax-ies that they say is the biggest structure ever seen in the universe.
"The structure, which they call the Great Wall, is so difficult to explain that it raises new questions about theories on the origin and structure of the universe.
"The researchers reported their discovery in Friday's issue of the journal "Science".
The galaxies that make up the Great Wall form a sheet at least 500 million light years long, or 3,000 billion, billion miles, and it is 200 million light years wide and 15 million light years thick.
By comparison, the Earth's Milky Way galaxy is 100,000 light years across. The entire universe is thought to be 10 billion to 20 billion light years across.
The Great Wall was discovered by Margaret Geller and John Huchra of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge in a detailed three-dimensional map they have been compiling of a section of the heavens. The structure is so big that it appears to run off the edges of the map.
Mr. Geller said no one knows of a force that could have produced a structure so big in the time since the universe was formed."
41 The answer as to who or
what made this great wall is easy: In the beginning God
created the heaven and the earth.
But a few months later even greater structures were discovered! "Astronomers have discovered more than a dozen evenly distributed clumps of galaxies stretching across vast expanses of the heavens, suggesting a structure to the universe that is so regular and immense that it defies current theories of cosmic creation and evolution.
In a report published in this month's issue of the journal of "Nature", scientists said the newly found pattern of clumped galactic matter, if confirmed by further observations, dwarfs the long sheet of galaxies, dubbed the 'Great Wall', that was reported last fall to be the largest structure in the universe.
The Great Wall, in fact, is merely one of the closest of these clumps, or regions, that contain high concentrations of galaxies.
Astrophysicists said the discovery could lead to a fundamental rethinking of theories about the early universe. The discovery raised further doubts about current concepts that try to ex- plain how, over time, gravity alone could have produced a universe marked by conglomerations of galaxies.
Two teams of astronomers in the United States and Britain shared more than seven years' accumulation of data before they felt sure enough of what they were seeing to publish.
They were surprised to see so many large clumps rather that a more uniform distribution of matter over such a large scale. But they were astonished to find the clumps so evenly spaced, each either 400 million or 800 million light years apart, depending on assumptions of how rapidly the universe is expanding.
'The regularity is just mind-boggling,' said Dr. David C. Koo, an astronomer at the University of California at Santa Cruz and one of the authors of the "Nature" report.
'It's as if we pierced an extremely narrow needle through the universe and hit one wall after another', said Alexander S. Szalay, an astronomer at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and a member of the discovery team.
'The clumps should be randomly distributed and they're not. That's the biggest surprise.'
In a commentary on the report, also published in "Nature", Marc Davis, an astrophysicist as the University of California at Berkeley, said the distribution could be a statistical fluke [he means an accident]. But he concluded that if the galaxy distribution was truly regular, 'it is safe to say we understand less than zero about the early universe.'
Koo said in a telephone interview that he, too, remained skeptical, but the evidence 'got so strong we had to publish what we had.' These observations, astrophysicists say, could deal a heavy blow to current theory. Most astronomers agree the universe burst from a very small size in the 'big bang'.
Most have presumed that
gravity caused clumpiness in the original evenly distributed, hot
stew of fundamental particles to draw matter together to form
galaxies, stars, and planets.
But basic theories imply that the galaxies should be distributed fairly evenly across vast distances rather than in the clumps, and foamlike bubbles observed." 42
With the recent discoveries made in America the last few years, it has become impossible to believe in the theory of evolution. Seems like our country [Taiwan] is always 20 years behind America. What is strongly being questioned in America is still taught as fact here. What a mess!
We are still being
taught evolution and given guided tours of the place where the
plaster monkey-men are located. Where is the science of FACT?
Where are the observable facts? Evolution is just like
Christianity, in that, it requires faith.
We are still being lied to about Heidleberg man. His bones were later conceded to be human.43 Nebraska man was made completely from one pig's tooth! 44 Piltdown man was made from just one jaw bone and later was found to belong to a modern ape!45 Peking man was made of a few fragments, found years apart, by Dr. Black and all evidence has completely disappeared!46 If you go into a court of law without any evidence, will you win or lose? Neanderthal man was later discovered to have been made from a man with arthritis. 47 Cro-Magnon man is equal in physique and brain size to that of modern man. So what is the difference? 48 Now we are only left with modern man. What about modern man? Well modern man is smart, he thinks he came from a monkey!
If the earth were as old as some scientists tell us, then the earth would have been burned up many years ago, because at the current rate of energy consumption, the sun would have been so big as to go out into the earth's orbit!
The evolutionist demand precision from Christians, but allows themselves a few extra millions of years with their theories. For example: most books, evolutionists have control in printing, say the earth has been here 4.5 billion years. They say that Man appeared 1 to 1.5 million years ago [500,000 years off]. They used to publish that the dinosaurs died 70 million years ago, but a BBC broadcast last week [week of June 3rd, 1991] said they died 65 million years ago! Oh well, I shall give them their few million years of mistakes because they are going to need it.
In 1982, a man started digging in the Paluxy river bed at Glen Rose, Texas. This sight is famous for its three toed dinosaur foot prints and human foot prints. However, through out the years the foot prints, in sand and lime stone, have been greatly eroded by the weather and almost unrecognizable. What he uncovered was startling. He uncovered three toed dinosaur foot prints and human foot prints together! Sometimes the human foot print was inside of the dinosaur foot print and sometimes the three toed dinosaur foot print was overlapping the human foot prints.49 After noticing the direction the foot prints were leading he invited TV stations, Carl Sagan, and other leading evolutionists to come and film while he used earth moving equipment to discover more tracks. As millions of people in the state of Texas watched, dozens of dinosaur and human foot prints were found under tons of earth! 50 Carl Sagan just grunted, turned around and left, knowing that evolution was wrong while still continuing to make millions of dollars each year saying, "Evolution is a fact amply demonstrated by the fossil record and by contemporary molecular biology. Natural selection is a successful theory devised to explain the fact of evolution." 51
Carl Sagan watched the foot prints being unearthed and yet he still clung to the theory of evolution. The humanism of America's humanist philosophers have made evolution one of their gods to be worshipped and are not satisfied until they have forced their belief upon everyone in the public school system. They are doing just what Machaivelli taught. That is to use whatever means that is necessary to rule and force your belief upon others. Might makes right!
It would be hard to separate evolution from philosophy because where you find philosophy being taught you find evolution being taught usually by someone that does not have enough brains to believe [usually slightly retarded] in God.
That Carl Sagan, and other believers in the faith of evolution have a problem, is evident from the find at Glen Rose, Texas. There are only three possible choices for finding human and dinosaur foot prints together.
1- You have a fully
developed man, as we now know him, living 64 million years before
his most ancient monkey ancestors.
2- You have a 64 million years old three-toed dinosaur walking in the state of Texas!
3- Or evolution is wrong, because man and dinosaurs lived at the same time in recent history!
It does not matter much
which of the three you choose. Any guess would prove evolution is
"The fact of evolution is the backbone of biology, and biology is thus in the peculiar position of being a science founded on an unproved theory - is it then a science or faith? Belief in the theory of evolution is thus exactly parallel to belief in special creation - both are concepts which believers know to be true but neither, up to the present, has been capable of proof." 52
From the last statement we can see that even the leading people that believe in evolution think of it as a "faith". You cannot have "faith" and not have a religion! Why, may I ask, is evolution still being taught as fact when this leading evolutionist admits that, like God, cannot be proven? Isn't that being fraudulent?
Notice also that Mr. Matthews' statement admits that evolution cannot be proven! He is an evolutionist.
"One of the world's most highly respected philosophers of science, Dr. Karl Popper, has argued that one theory of origins [evolution], almost universally accepted as a scientific fact, does not even qualify as a scientific theory.53 A 1980 display at the prestigious British Museum of Natural History made the same admission."54 "I have come to the conclusion that Darwinism is not a testable scientific theory, but a metaphysical research programme - a possible framework for testable scientific theories... It is therefore important to show that Darwinism is not a scientific theory but metaphysical." 55
Why is this theory, if it even qualifies as that, being still taught to the people of our country? There is not one iota of evidence that evolution is true and this is admitted by some of the world's greatest scientists. Carl Sagan said it was a fact, yet where are all the intermediate forms that should have been found? "The fossil record tells us almost nothing about the evolutionary origin of phyla and classes. Intermediate forms are nonexistent, undiscovered, or not recognized." 56
"The known fossil record fails to document a single example of phyletic [gradual] evolution accomplishing a major morphologic transition and hence offers no evidence that the gradualistic method can be valid [true]." 57
"If life had evolved into its wondrous profusion of creatures little by little", Dr. Niles Eldredge argues, "then one would expect to find fossils of transitional creatures which were a bit like what went before them and a bit like what came after. But no one has yet found any evidence of such transitional creatures. This oddity has been attributed to gaps in the fossil record which gradualists [evolutionists] expected to fill when rock strata of the proper age had been found. In the last decade, however, geologists have found rock layers of all divisions of the last 500 million years and no transitional forms were contained in them." 58 [Author's note: Ho, ho, ho]
"There is not a trace [not even a little evidence] at a molecular level of the traditional evolutionary series: cyclostome - fish - amphibian - reptile - mammal. Incredibly, man is as close to lamprey as are fish! None of the higher jawed vertebrate group is in any sense intermediate between the jawless vertebrate and other jawed vertebrate groups." 59 "It is well now established that the pattern of diversity at a molecular level conforms to a highly ordered hierarchic system. Each class at a molecular level is unique, isolated and unlinked by intermediates. Thus, molecules, like fossils, have failed to provide the elusive intermediates so long sought by evolutionary biology." 60
Darwin, himself, admitted that his theory is a theory and that if the intermediates could not be found, then his theory was wrong!61
The evolutionary philosophers got themselves into an embarrassing situation a few years ago when "Sir Julian Huxley tells the television audience: 'The first point to make about Darwin's Theory is that it is no longer a theory, but a fact,' while at almost the same time Professor Mayr, addressing himself to serious students, says: 'The basic theory [of evolution] is in many instances hardly more than a postulate [guessing].''' 62
Even the dating system Carbon-14 is so unpredictable as to make it of no use at all in dating bone, rocks, and other articles. A couple of examples will suffice. "A living mollusk was tested by Carbon-14 ... the reading showed it had been dead for 3000 years!" 63 Lava rocks were checked in Hawaii by the Potassium Argon method . . . it was said they were almost 3 billion years Old! Yet they came from a volcano that erupted in 1801!" 64
The startling truth is that evolution is a religion based upon faith. Faith in this theory is what this short paper documents to be false.
Evolution is also a philosophy that men use to comfort themselves in their feeling that there is not a God and thus they will never have to stand in judgment for their evil deeds.
The more philosophy a man tends to study, 64.5 the more that person changes his beliefs in family values. The more that person tends to believe there is no evil, except what evil that may hurt others. Thus, him being seen drunk by his children, being seen disobeying the traffic signals by his children, seen lying to others by his children, he believes, will not effect their lives. In other words, he destroys the family unit and teaches his children, by example, to do the same. He destroys the ones he loves and helps bring the downfall of his own nation and culture.
I could go on. I have before me more than 30 books and over 100 articles proving that evolution is wrong, but this paper must come to an end somewhere.
We Chinese people tend
to view Christianity as Roman Catholicism, but as you can see,
the Roman Catholic system is anything but Christianity. True
Christianity is receiving Jesus Christ, by faith, to be your
Saviour, thus Him taking your sins away.
Dear teacher, I cannot prove there is a God, but this paper proves that evolution is a theory and not a proven fact. What are we then left with? There is only thing that we could be possibly be left with to believe and that is, "In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth." 65
One need not be smart to see where this evolutionary, humanistic philosophy has led America. America's AIDS problem is well known. But not what is well known is that, "Half of San Francis- co's gay [pervert] population is believed to be infected with AIDS ......more than half have received college degrees, earning $25,000 US dollars or more a year." 66 They are educated, but not so smart after all. These people were brought up in a society years ago. This rejection of the reading of the word of God was brought about by one woman that believed in evolution.
When the philosophy of humanism and its doctrine of evolution take over the teaching system of a country like America you end up with former President Reagan's daughter, "bemoaning the alleged fact that her father - the President's Administration - supposedly ignored the 'intent' of the Marine Mammal Protection Act, with the result being, she says, 'that 20,500 dolphins a year were killed by fishermen fishing for tuna.'" 67 In America famous people are worried about dolphins, but not worried about the killing of more than 23 million babies [abortion] since 1970! This is what happens when the philosophy of humanism takes over! America is in a mess! The humanistic approach to music has begotten African sex music with its morals and broken homes. Their use of drugs has brought war to their cities. Is this what we want? Where is the Utopia that philosophy is to bring?
I want to show you how
real Christians can die and how some of the greatest philosophers
and atheists have died.
Samuel Medley's [1738-1799] last words as he was dying were, "Dying is sweet work! Sweet work! My heavenly Father, I am looking up to my dear Jesus, my God, my portion, my all in all. Glory! Glory, Home, Home!" 68
Yet notice the words of Voltaire the noted French infidel who used his pen to attack the Catholic Church thinking it represented true Christianity. His dying words were, "I am abandoned by God and man! I will give you half of what I am worth if you will give me six month's life. Then I shall go to hell; and you will go with me. O Christ! O Jesus Christ!" 69
Edward Turner was a professor of chemistry at the University of London and a true Christian. On his death bed he said, "O happy I am! How kind everyone is to me! It is worthwhile being sick to see how kind everyone is to me. My whole trust is in Christ. I should have no comfort without him." 70
As the death struggle started he said, "I am content, content to die. Christ is the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believeth in Him, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in Him shall never die. Let all be present, it may do them good. Pray for me, that my struggle will not be long. Pray that I may have peace." 71
All the people then present prayed for him. Then he said, "I could not have believed that I could be happy on my death bed. I am content my career to close." 72 This is how a true Christian can die.
William Pope was the leader of a group of intellectuals that used to meet. One of their jokes was to kick a Bible around the room. His last words on his death bed were, "I have no contrition. I cannot repent. God will damn me. I know the day of grace is past ... You see one [himself] who is damned forever ... Oh, Eternity! Eternity! ... Nothing for me but hell. Come, eternal torments ..... I hate everything God has made, only I have no hatred for the devil - I wish to be with him. I long to be in hell. Do you not see? Do you not see him? He is coming for me." 73
What do you think he saw? He saw the devil and was wondering why the others did not see.
Patrick Henry (1736-1799), the famous American statesman said, while reading his Bible, "Here is a Book worth more than all the other books which were ever printed; yet it is my misfortune never to have, till lately, found time to read it with proper attention and feeling." 74
How can a man that claims to be a seeker or lover of wisdom never have prayerfully read the Bible? Can you pray an honest man's prayer? Dear God, if there is a God, and if this is your word, then show me what I must do to gain eternal life, if there is eternal life.
Colonel Charteris, another infidel said, "I would gladly give L30,000 to have it proved to my satisfaction that there is no such place as hell." 75
"Kay, the infidel was the one who cried at the end: 'Hell! Hell! Hell!'" 76
His family could not stand his groans and oaths and fled the room until he was dead! 77
But how can a true
Christian [the Roman Catholic system is not Christian] die when
faced with a terrible death?
Constantia Bellone was a martyr, killed by the Roman Cat-holics because of her faith in Jesus Christ alone. She said that the Bible offered salvation through faith and she did not need to eat the Catholic Church's cookie or drink their wine. For this she was to suffer a terrible death.
"Because she refused to go to mass [this is the ceremony where the Catholic priests claim to change bread and wine into the literal body and blood of Jesus Christ! And then they eat it!], a priest ordered slices of flesh to be cut from various parts of her body. Finally the priest ordered a company of musketeers to fire upon her, and as they raised their muskets [old guns], the brave woman said, 'I was brought up in a religion by which I was taught to renounce the devil, but should I comply with your desire and go to mass, I should be sure to meet him there in a variety of shapes. What horrid and lasting torments will you suffer in hell for the trifling and temporary pains which I now endure.'" 78
"Thomas Benet was another who felt the fury of Rome for not obeying her dictates. When arrested in 1531, his Catholic tormentor said to him, 'Pray to our Lady [Mary] and all will be well!' The martyr's answer was: 'No, no, it is God only upon whose name we must call, and we have no advocate but only Jesus Christ.'" 79
George Carpenter, another one murdered by Roman Catholicism in 1527 uttered this last word: 'My wife and my children are so beloved that they cannot be bought for all the riches of the Duke of Bavaria; but for the love of my Lord I will willingly for-sake them Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!'" 80
"Charles IX, of France [1550-1574], was responsible for the massacre of St. Bartholomew when, under oath of safety, the principal Christians of France were in Paris to celebrate the marriage of the King of Navarre with the sister of the French King. Instigated by his mother, Catherine de Medici [a rabid Roman Catholic working for the pope in Rome], Charles ordered the massacre, and more than 5,000 Christians were murdered in the city of Paris alone and about 30,000 in all were killed. Rome received the news with joy, and a medal was struck, having an image of the pope on one side and on the other a rude representation of the massacre. That the king was haunted by such a gory spectacle is evident from the fact that as he died, the blood of those thousands who were brutally murdered haunted him and he cried: 'What murder! What blood! O, I have done wrong - God, pardon me.'" 81
The Roman Catholic system, at this time, sometimes would allow a person to live if he or she would promise to follow the teachings of the Catholic system. Needless to say, very few real true Christians were willing to renounce their faith in Christ alone for salvation, but were willing to suffer and die just as Christ had done for them hundreds of years before.
A man named Fye was burned at the stake by the Catholic system in 1549. Arriving at the place of death the Catholic priest said to him. "Will you not do such a work of mercy as to receive this bread and wine [the mass] before you die?" Fye answered: "For your bread and wine I do not hunger. Food is prepared for me in Heaven." 82 The executioner took the cap from Fye's head and filled it with gun power ...As he was burning, Fye said, "Lord, receive Thy servant." 83
The Roman Catholic system is a religious system as well as a political system that practices the philosophy of Machiavelli. They even have ambassadors to most of the countries of the world, including America 84 and our own country [Taiwan].
That the Roman Catholic Church wants to destroy the freedom of religion in America and the world is well documented in hundreds of books. 85
Plainly we can see that the Roman Catholic religion is not Christianity. How can you worship idols, kill true Christians, remove kings and presidents,86 compel men to pray to Mary, and be Christian? Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." 87
You see, salvation [forgiveness of sins and the gift of eternal life for your soul] is not found in a religious system, but is found in Jesus Christ. Not one Bible verse tells us to pray to Mary!
People think that they can do enough good in order to go to heaven, such as keeping the ten commandments [the law], but the Bible says, "Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith." 88 To the Christian the Bible says, "Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree." 89 "Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." 90
The only true peace is to be found in Jesus Christ. I used to go to sleep at night and wonder why I was born. I used to wonder why we humans were on the earth? What is the reason? I wanted to die. But God sent someone to tell me about the real Jesus, not the Catholic Jesus with all of its extras. I saw that I was a sinner that needed a Saviour. I saw and understood that One really did love me enough to die for me. I prayed and asked Jesus to be my Saviour and forgive my sins. Now I understand His peace. I do not want to die anymore. I know that I was born to give honor and glory to Him. I am so happy that I want to tell the whole world of His love for them and their chance to have the gift of eternal life for their souls.
I would like to close with the famous words of Mortimer Adler, "My chief reason for choosing Christianity was because the mysteries were incomprehensible. What's the point of revelation if we could figure it our ourselves? If it were wholly comprehensible then it would be just another philosophy." 91
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." 92 I want to thank you for allowing me to write on any subject that I desire. I pray that you will reread this carefully and prayerfully.
I chose the title, "Philosophy,
Evolution, Religion [Roman Catholicism], Versus True Christianity"
because I wanted you to know the truth about these subjects. Also
I chose this subject because of the many times in class that you
hurt me and did not know what you were doing to me. When you
talked of people making their own gods, I was hurt. Hurt, that
you did not see the true love of God. When you talked of our
ancestors being monkeys, I was hurt. I thought, "How
could such an intelligent man believe in
evolution?" I thought, "I must give him the
truth." Now you know. Now you have the truth.
This paper proves the foolishness of philosophy, evolution, and Catholicism. This information can be freely found in books already written for I have quoted 90% or more from those books. This paper does not prove Biblical Christianity to be true, but that is why we need faith. Faith in Jesus, the Son of God, to be saved.
Dear teacher, I wondered about life and God. I wanted the truth and God gave it to me. Now, I give you the truth on these few pages. What will you do? You, like myself, are a sinner that has committed sin against God. You need a Saviour. Will you or will you not accept Jesus Christ to be your only Saviour? If yes, then pray to Him asking forgiveness now.

16 The 5,000,000 votes that put Adolf Hitler in power were Roman Catholic votes! The Germans were blamed for what Von Papen and Pope Pius XI (Catholic) had done politically. See "Vatican Imperialism", page 382 by Sir Avro Manhattan and John Toland's huge work on Hitler, pages 114 and 307. There were many Catholics in Hitler's government, especially in positions of dominant power.
Henrich Himmler was a Baptized Roman Catholic who was in charge of the Gestapo. He ordered the death of 300 Catholics that would not go along with the Church leadership [Independent Baptists do this to each other all of the time.] in helping the Nazi's under Hitler, but sought and received the full approval of the pope. [See "Death in Rome" by McMillen Publishing Co., New York pages 250-255.]
Hitler, a Catholic, signed a concordant with Pope Pius XI of Italy. In this agreement all real Christians whom followed the Bible were for- bidden to meet. Only Catholic chaplains were installed in the German armed forces and the Catholic Church was state sponsored receiving government money! Hitler's ambassador spoke of Germany's Third Reich as "A Christian Revolution". The only religion to receive tax money was the Catholic religion and they were allowed to teach in all of the public schools. ["The New Testament Church", Volume II, page 224 by Bible Baptist Bookstore, Pensacola, Florida, USA. Pete Ruckman, quoting Lewy.]
Pope Pius XII, the
Roman pope, knew full well that Hitler was murdering millions of
Jews because when Bishop Berning and Monsignor Steinmann [special
envoys from the pope] were received by Hitler, he told them
candidly that he was only, "doing what the Catholic Church
had already done for 1,500 years."

64.5 This is truly born out by the tragic situation with a young man [whose father in Florida had hopes that his son would take over "the work"] I knew and was associated with from 1977 through 1982. This young man was hung up on philosophy, tragically he hurt more than a few young women. The young women would come to a me and tell me their storys. One said, "Brother Powell, I do not even know if I am saved anymore." Some of the young women told me that the son had, through months and months of cajoling and philosophical arguments gotten them into bed. The son rejected his father, Christianity, and the church there. The son even took a 12 year old girl on a date once!
The son went on to teach philosophy at more than one famous University. He told me once, "You really do not know my dad. He is different at home than he is in church. He has everybody fooled."
Finally, after hearing from so many women what was going on I informed the Associate Pastor, who wanted to protect his own self and to blazes with the young women, said, "You go tell him [the man in charge of the work], I am not going to ruin myself by having him [the young man's father] mad at me." Years and years later [and no telling how many young women ruined] the young man was caught in an involved sex scandal and the issue was quietly taken care of with people in the work not knowing. The son soon thereafter left the church and area. That young man could have been greatly used of God, but he had a sex problem that he could not overcome and was hung up on practicing his philosophical arguments on young women to get into their pants! This young man's father once wrote to my Pastor, in Texas, saying, "Birds of a feather flock together." when he was criticizing my Pastor. Would he think the same about himself and his son? I, knowing, the situation would have to say when considering another of his sons who quit the Air Force [a coward] after only one month, and knowing the father's own problems with the fairer sex and the father's own draft-dodging by hiding in college for four years of World War II [everyone thinks this man is a war hero -to hear him tell it], would have to agree with him THAT BIRDS OF A FEATHER REALLY DO FLOCK TOGETHER."! And . . . "Like father, like son", but in this case like the father like two of his three sons.

84 America broke diplomatic relations with the Vatican in 1865 because of their murder of America's President, Abraham Lincoln. Diplomatic relations were established again by President Ronald Reagan. For the death of Lincoln and its documentation see: "The Big Betrayal", 1981, by Chick Publications, Chino, California pp. 48-59. See also, "The Suppressed Truth About The Assassination Of Abraham Lincoln", by Burke McCarty. Burke McCarty says he was an ex-Romanist. His book was published in Taiwan and without a copyright or date of publication. I have it in my possession and it is 255 pages long. It no doubt is a black-market book and was published elsewhere before being published in Taiwan. See footnote 85, paragraph four about how to locate this old book in used bookstores.
85 After the Battle of Gettysburg Lincoln went there to grieve. Lincoln said, "When I left Springfield, I asked the people to pray for me; I was not a Christian. When I buried my son, the severest trial of my life, I was not a Christian. But when I saw the graves of thousands of our soldiers, I then and there, consecrated myself to Christ. I do love Jesus." Found in, "Words of Lincoln," by O. H. Oldroyd, Pub. by The Mershon Company Press, 1875, page 154. Quoted in "The Big Betrayal", by Chick Publications p. 56. Already quoted.
Lincoln said to an ex-Catholic priest that, "We owe it to the pope [Pope Pius IX] that we now see our land reddened with the blood of her noblest sons." "The Vatican-Moscow Alliance" by Sir Avro Manhattan p. 271, published by Ralston-Pilot Inc., 24 Ansdell Terrace, Kensington, London W.8. England as quoted in "The Big Betrayal" by Chick Publications p. 57.
Jeff Davis, the President of the South in the American Civil war, was a Catholic sympathizer, who studied at a Catholic school in Kentucky.
The Catholic Church helped to push the South into a war with the North to destroy the religious freedom there and to gradually take over North America by planting a Catholic controlled Southern Confed- eracy.
All eight people involved in the murder of Lincoln were Roman Catholics. Four were hanged and four were jailed. The Roman Church managed to gain the freedom of one, named John Surratt, brought him to Rome and made him one of the bodyguards of pope Pius IX! See "The Suppressed Truth About The Assassination Of Lincoln". This book definitely can be found by going to a good used bookstore and asking them to do a search to find it. You will pay about $45.00 [1998 prices].
His escape was discovered and the U.S. Government demanded his return. Back in the U.S. he was tried, but three of the jury were Catholics and he was acquitted....
These last three
paragraphs are documented in "The Big Betrayal" pp.
56-59 by Chick Publications, Chino, Calif.
Other books documenting the Catholic Church's involvement in instigating wars are: "Vietnam, Why Did We go?" By Sir Avro Manhatten of England. "The Vatican-Moscow Alliance" and "Vatican Billions" by the same Author. "Fifty Years in The Church of Rome" by the ex-Catholic priest, Father Chiniquy. Also a friend of Lincoln. "Pope Pius XII and The Third Reich".
86 See "The Suppressed Truth About The Murder Of Abraham Lincoln" for it lists five American Presidents that the Jesuits have killed to remove from office! The Catholic Church may have had the American President Kennedy removed when he allowed the killing of the South Vietnam President in the early 1960's. Kennedy was faced with a difficult situation. The American public wanted to know why the Vietnamese Buddhists were burning themselves to death and not knowing that the C.I.A. sponsored Vietnamese President was a Roman Catholic, who would not allow the Buddhists to worship their idols and was jailing them and persecuting them. At the same time, Kennedy had orders from Rome to help protect their investment in South Vietnam. Vietnam was Rome's only foothold on the Asian mainland and they did not want to lose it even if it caused the murder of a few million Buddhists.
Kennedy had a hard choice: allow Diem to be overthrown and have the Catholic Church angry with him, but get reelected. His second choice was stop the plot to overthrow Diem and have the American public reject him when he ran for President again. He chose to allow the overthrow of Diem on condition that Diem not be killed. Diem was killed and just three weeks later Kennedy was killed probably by the Roman Church using our C.I.A., the Mafia, and maybe part of the Secret Service whose job is to protect the President.
Also what did not help was that the American General that was in charge of the Bay of Pigs landing in Cuba was a Catholic as well as his brother who was Mayor of Dallas, where Kennedy was killed when the motorcade took a different route to go by the "Grassy Knoll".
And if this were not
enough the Dulles brother that was put in charge of the Warren
Commission to investigate the assassination was the main backer
to put Diem in power in South Vietnam in the first place. One of
the first things that Kennedy did when he became president was to
fire Mr. Dulles from being the C.I.A. chief. Not hard to
figure out that Kennedy had many enemies in high places, any
number of whom would have reason to assassinate him or combine to
do it as a group!
And both Dulles brothers [one C.I.A chief and the other Secretary of Defense or Secretary of State] were members of the Catholic Church!
This does not even take
into consideration the Mafia who helped Kennedy win Illinois by
giving him Chicago and winning the election by the slimmest
margin ever in this century. The deal was to lay off of them, but
President Kennedy's brother did not. Yes, they went back on their
deal with the Mafia after the election was won! The Mafia was not
happy when Kennedy's brother, as the attorney general targeted
organized crime as a priority! The Mafia leaders are, of course,
And if all of this were not enough: Kennedy saw what was happening and how we were to be slowly drawn into a mess, so just a few days after his death he was going to sign a bill bringing our men back from Vietnam. There would not have been over 53,000 dead if he had lived! Yes, no Vietnam war would have been fought!
The "Powers that be" were plenty mad. This was one more reason to kill him.
This is why the American public was not informed of the complete story! This is why Lee Oswald [Supposedly Kennedy's murderer, but not the real murderer.] was himself killed a few days later. Oswald knew too much! This information can be found in the book, "Vietnam, Why Did We Go?" by Sir Avro Manhatten. Now published by Chick Publications, P.O. Box 662, Chino, California, USA, 91710.

accusations, but solid proof is conspicuously absent.
While the article was designed to discredit and smear Alberto, a careful reading of it only reinforces the information this servant of God has presented.
In light of all this, how can any honest person believe the Roman-inspired lies about A. Rivera and J. Chick? We have presented independent evidence which heavily supports Rivera's charges against the Roman church, evidence which can be obtained by anyone without much difficulty.
We offer this challenge to any so called "expert on the cults," or any other skeptic. Before you accuse these two fine Christian brethren, first get your facts right. Attacking the cults is good and useful; however, don't focus on the minor cults without exposing the biggest, most evil and dangerous one first. Otherwise, don't be surprised if true born again Bible-believing Christians view your efforts with suspicion.
Before you accuse either of them of "hating Catholics," find out what you're talking about. It is not hate, but true love, that motivates these men to cry out to deceived lost souls perishing in a false religion. Who is guilty of hate? Men who try to awaken and rescue the perishing, or pious religious leaders who deceive multitudes and help push them into the eternal flames of hell?
No, it is neither Rivera or Chick who are guilty of hate. They are to be commended for their genuine love and compassion for the lost. If you care to discuss hate, study the history of the Catholic institution. Their past is replete with acts that perfectly define the word hate.
