Why is Evolution Defended?

Since the day of its formulation, the evolutionary theory has served the best interests of materialist philosophy. Today, those who make efforts to keep this theory alive are the proponents of this philosophy.

Why is the theory of evolution still defended despite the obvious evidence against it? The American evolutionist biologist, Michael Walker, makes the following confession as he answers this question:

One is forced to conclude that many scientists and technologists pay lip service to Darwinian theory only because it supposedly excludes a creator.65

The only purpose of the promoters of the theory is to foster the materialist philosophy which denies God. Materialism is a blind faith that admits the existence of matter alone and denies all supra-material beings. Since materialists derive their so-called scientific argument from the theory of evolution, they have sustained Darwinism since the day of its inception.


The materialist philosophy was born in the pagan culture of Ancient Greece. Darwinism laid the so-called scientific foundation for this philosophy, which was revived in the 18th century.


The founder of dialectic materialism (communism), Karl Marx, wrote of Darwin's book, The Origin of Species, which laid the basis for the theory of evolution, as "the book which contains the basis in natural history for our view."66

Since that day, all materialists, with Marxists in the forefront, blindly defend Darwinism.



Another ideology that was nourished by Darwinism was racism. In his book, The Origin of Species, Darwin suggested that European white races had progressed in evolution, whereas the other races were still at the same level as apes. These ideas provided a so-called scientific justification for racist thinkers. The racist illustration seen on the side, showing black people and apes in the same tree, is a representation of the impact of Darwinism in 19th century England.

The racist heritage of Darwinism provided the basis for ideologies such as Nazism in the 20th century. The racist views of the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler derived from Darwin's theory of evolution. In Hitler's book Mein Kampf (My Struggle), there were views inspired by Darwin's concept of the struggle for existence.

Yet, the lie of evolution that has cheated the world for the last 140 years will not live on for long. The British philosopher Malcolm Muggeridge states the inevitable collapse of the theory:

Darwin's Enmity Towards the Turks

The racist views of Charles Darwin were directed against many races among which were the Turks. As quoted from the book titled The Life and Letters of Charles Darwin that is composed of Darwin's letters, Darwin referred to the Turkish nation as a "lower race" and then estimated that "lower races will have been eliminated at no very distant date." In the letter Charles Darwin wrote to W. Graham on July 3, 1881, he said: "I could show fight on natural selection having done and doing more for the progress of civilization than you seem inclined to admit. Remember what risk the nations of Europe ran, not so many centuries ago of being overwhelmed by the Turks, and how ridiculous such an idea now is! The more civilized so-called Caucasian races have beaten the Tu rkish hollow in the struggle for existence. Looking to the world at no very distant date, what an endless number of the lower races will have been eliminated by the higher civilized races throughout the world."68

I myself am convinced that the theory of evolution, especially the extent to which it's been applied, will be one of the great jokes in the history books in the future. Posterity will marvel that so very flimsy and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity that it has.67

Friedrich Engels

Friedrich Engels, the biggest associate of Marx, regarded the theory of evolution as a great support for materialism. Engels praised Darwin and Marx as being the same: "Just as Darwin discovered the law of evolution in organic nature, so did Marx discover the law of evolution in human history."69

Karl Marx

The first person to understand the importance of Darwin's contribution to materialism was Karl Marx, the founder of communism. Marx showed his sympathy to Darwin by dedicating to him Das Kapital, which is considered his greatest work. In the German edition of the book which he sent to Darwin, he wrote: "From a devoted admirer to Charles Darwin"
