"Bah! Humbug!" How Darwin Stole Christmas…


Okay, so Darwin didn’t really steal Christmas. But by claiming to show that biology is the product of a blind and unintelligent process, he certainly inspired many of today’s atheist activists who are doing their best to debunk faith as well as to censor everyone who disagrees with them. Thanks to Darwin’s legacy, these activists are sure that science proves materialism.

You and I both know these activists are wrong. Far from proving materialism, recent scientific discoveries reveal ever more incredible layers of intelligent design — from the nanotechnology inside our cells, to the laws of physics that make life possible.

But how are people — especially young people — going to hear about this remarkable evidence for intelligent design?

They surely won’t hear about it from those in the establishment media, most of whom are so imprisoned by old stereotypes that they can’t accurately report what is going on.

Nor will they hear about the evidence from our colleges and universities, many of which are so dominated by the Darwinian paradigm that they won’t even allow free speech for professors who disagree with it. Just this year, Indiana’s Ball State University imposed a ban on faculty speech supportive of intelligent design, and a community college in Texas cancelled a class on the debate over intelligent design after a local “freethinkers” group threatened to disrupt the class. So much for the free exchange of ideas!

So, again, how are most people going to hear about the evidence for intelligent design?

There is just one way: If people like you and me spread the news. We can do this by telling our families, by communicating with our friends — and by supporting the work of Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture.

Each year, Discovery Institute communicates the evidence of intelligent design to hundreds of thousands of people through books, articles, conferences, websites, podcasts, social media, YouTube videos, documentaries, and summer seminars for college students.

If you want people to know about the evidence for intelligent design, you need to partner with us! We want to do more than ever before in 2014, but we can do this only if we have more partners who are willing to help us spread the word. Are you willing? Can you help us this week with a generous donation for 2014?
