SciAm, Wikipedia, Wikiquote and ExpelledExposed.com Exposed: A Refutation In Defense of Ben Stein

With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated; and those that survive commonly exhibit a vigorous state of health. We civilized men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check the process of elimination. We build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed and the sick; we institute poor-laws; and our medical men exert their utmost skill to save the life of every one to the last moment. There is reason to believe that vaccination has preserved thousands, who from a weak constitution would formerly have succumbed to small-pox. Thus the weak members of civilized societies propagate their kind. No one who has attended to the breeding of domestic animals will doubt that this must be highly injurious to the race of man. It is surprising how soon a want of care, or care wrongly directed, leads to the degeneration of a domestic race; but excepting in the case of man himself, hardly anyone is so ignorant as to allow his worst animals to breed. The aid which we feel impelled to give to the helpless is mainly an incidental result of the instinct of sympathy – Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man, 1871.

It has been claimed that to quote Darwin in this way (including leaving out "excepting in the case of man", on Darwinian propaganda websites like wikipedia, wikiquote and expelledexposed.com, is misleading because of what Darwin wrote soon after those sentences. I agree that it is deceptive if the intent is ot make Darwin and other Darwinists look worse than they are. However, it makes sense to leave those parts out if you want to avoid complicating an explanation. I suspect that Ben Stein and certain Christians left those parts out was because of that and didn’t know how to explain why those parts he left out were not enough to prevent people like Hitler from using Darwinistic Evolutionary Theory to try and exterminate all Jews, Gypsies, and other races. They also may have left those parts out because they saw it as dishonest of Darwin himself to say those things, like someone with hatred in their heart ranting about how evil Christians are, but then to say near the end of their rant, "But a few Christians are decent… and if we were to exterminate them there would be a dark cloud around while doing so."

Furthermore, for Darwinists to claim that Darwin is being taken out of context in the way they are doing so is itself misleading in another way, and those websites which make this claim, not suprising to me, do not explain why to quote Darwin that was is misleading either). Those who claim to quote Darwin this way are the ones who are misleading, because they are misdirecting people from this part of what he said, "The aid which we feel impelled to give is mainly and INCIDENTAL RESULT OF THE INSTINCT of sympathy". Darwin did not say, "The help we want to give to others who are weak, stupid or diseased is due to a God programming us to be that way because he doesn’t want us to be uncaring to those kinds of people and we should not resist this instinct to be compassionate he gave us because he’s shown that he should be obeyed, and will punish us if we don’t obey him, and because we would not want others to treat us hatefully or to neglect us if we were or became weak, ignorant, feeble-minded, or diseased. And after that Darwin merely implied, without explaining why in the way I pointed out, that it would be evil not to help the weak, stupid and diseased, and so if someone were to believe, as Darwin taught, that the desire to want to help someone or to have sympathy is merely a meaningless product of a mindless process of evolution, and therefore NOT evil if we go against, and that to go against it would simply be natural and part of the process of evolution, or "survival of the fittest" as Darwinist put it. And, as evolutionists themselves teach, "Science is always progressing, it’s never perfect, we scientists are still learning," and therefore it is perfectly reasonable by their own excuse there, to quote Darwin that way, but to dismiss part of what he said for "progress", "evolving", "learning", "correcting" and "becoming more fit". The Darwinist Richard Dawkins himself would admit that there is no such thing as evil or good, and that Darwin was wrong to teach that there was, and that Darwin was either still partially deceived by religion, or afraid for some reason, like for fear of being seen as a cold monster, or insane, that there was no such thing as good or evil. So again, to claim that it’s deceptive to quote that part of Darwin I or others do, and not mention the rest, or to leave some sentences out in the quote, is what is the lie. There is no law in the Bible that says, "You must quote every word and sentence a person says or else you’re automatically misleading or lying or both," except the one that Christian-haters or religion-haters or confused person has made up. Furthermore, if it’s true that we merely evolved without God or with God merely watching us evolve, as these Darwinists who accuse me and others of lying claim, then there is no sin, and it’s not wrong to mislead, to lie, as they imply it is.

Furthermore, Darwin’s entire rant was wrong: Rancher’s, unless they are morons, don’t simply kill their "inferior" animals because such animals can be sold to those who don’t have any or if an animal is a runt, which Darwin and many Darwinists would see as inferior I’m sure, it is can made a pet or sold as a pet. On top of that, if the rancher want’s to increase his food or pet supply, he or she can allow the "inferior" animals to multiply in a seperate grazing area if there is enough for both them and the better animals he or she owns. So Darwin was stupid and short-sighted to teach that only smart ranchers kill their inferior/lesser animals, and stupid and short-sighted are the Darwinists who imply that Darwin was correct about that.

Darwin lied and gave a confusing message. In conclusion, let the war continue against those in America who apply this Darwinian reasoning to human beings, which are not animals any more than angels are animals. The ones who are most spiritually fit, will survive this war and prosper forever.
