Format: Paperback
Mr. Green, author of the darkly brilliant "Blind Baseball," uses a slender volume of few pages to lay bare the intellectual dishonesty of the materialist worldview. In doing so, he exposes, using a few elementary examples, how shallow and anti-intellectual materialism is. In its' various forms - Darwinism, Marxism, and many of the other -isms that are really heresies against the revealed faith of classical Christendom, materialism requires a blind faith greater than that which orthodox Christians are accused of harboring.
Consider only Darwinism. A belief in Darwinism evolution requires a disbelief in a Creator, and acceptance of Chance and Fortune as the supreme motive forces of history, biology, and all the other sciences. To believe in evolution is to believe that until blood clotting evolved, all previous living organisms with circulatory systems survived as hemophiliacs. Darwinian belief requires believing in the frauds of Piltdown Man, that the Missing Link has or will be found, and that ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny (the gestation of an individual mimics the evolution of the species), in spite of Ernst Hackel's blatant forgeries of the drawings of embryos that served as the basis for its' propagation. Even though this was known before I was born to be a lie, it was still taught in school in the 1960s and 1970s, when I was in school, as it was when the author was in college. The enumeration of some of the more spectular lies told by the prophets of Darwinism, as retold in this book, make one think of how many fragments of the True Cross circulated in the Middle Ages. (The pious frauds who trafficked in slivers were not scientists, who claim serve objective truth.
