Mohler On Darwin (and other brief thoughts on evolution)

"Today marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of both Charles Darwin and Abraham Lincoln. Both men shaped history, but it is Charles Darwin who presents us with the most significant intellectual challenge."

This is how Al Mohler introduces today's blog entry. He then goes on to provide links to well over a dozen past articles in which Darwin is discussed. If you are really looking for something to do today, this would be a good use of your time.

It's true, Darwin's legacy is one we must deal with on a daily basis. Sadly, most folks are either unaware of the problem (that being the overwhelming dominance of an evolutionary worldview in everything from education to economics to history, etc), or they are simply unwilling/unprepared to deal with it.

I would encourage you to read up a little on things. Try these two recent posts from the Answer's In Genesis blog (here and here). Pick up a copy of Nancy Pearcy's Total Truth. Or invest in some of AiG's resources.

Like it or not, this is an issue we will continue to face, and we need to face it.
