Debating the "Undebatable"

Well, as Gomer Pyle (a fitting symbol for today's liberalism) would put it, "Surprise, surprise!" Scott Walker has (again) disappointed a member of the liberal media. Rest assured, it won't be the last time, especially if he runs for the GOP nomination for U.S. President. The trouble for liberals with Walker however, is that he has already taken many of their best punches. Democrats desperately dug deep on him in their vain attempts to unseat him as governor of Wisconsin.

Thus, we now have to hear about how important it is that the President of the United States needs to be a college graduate. It seems this is especially so the U.S. President can be well versed in Darwinian evolution.

In spite of Walker's lack of a college pedigree, the Washington Post's Richard Cohen thinks, hypothetically, he could have supported Walker for president, until last week that is. "If I were a Republican," Cohen declared yesterday, "I think I might have supported Scott Walker for president." Cohen goes on to compliment Walker's smile, tenacity, and his "adherence to principle." 

What did a Walker do last week that made Cohen's "faux conservative heart" sink? Mr. Walker balked when asked about evolution. According to Cohen, this makes the Wisconsin governor "either an ignoramus or a coward." (And only an "ignoramus or a coward" could defeat liberals 3 times in 4 years in the deep purple state of Wisconsin, right Mr. Cohen?) Because, of course, being.asked if one believes in evolution, "is precisely no different than asking whether one believes in the theory of gravity or general relativity."

Because, you see, "It is simply not possible to contest evolution, since it is the basis of all the biological sciences. The issue is closed, not-debatable...," adds Cohen. Ah yes, you know you've struck a nerve with liberals when you've tread upon that which is "not debatable." So we've gone beyond "the science is settled" to, "No matter what you or anyone else has to say, we're just not going to talk about that anymore."

Be it the "right" of a women to kill her unborn child, the new-found "right" to "marry" whomever one desires, the "right" to live as whatever gender one desires (no matter the plumbing God gave you), the notion that the earth is on a "slow boil" (Cohen's words--he must not live in the eastern U.S.), or Darwinian evolution, there seems to be an ever-increasing number of things liberals don't want to discuss, much less debate.

Yes, in liberal-land, the (supposed) billions of years of biology that describes the "how" (and I suppose the "why") of all living things is settled, but the biology of human anatomy and physiology, that we can see with our own eyes, is a mystery that we are still figuring out. In other words, though an individual might be born fully male, with all of the proper attachments, and lived as such for decades--even competing in the Olympics as such--if he suddenly decides he is a woman, and wants to mutilate his God-given body (and even have the taxpayers foot the bill!), this is not disease or madness, but bravery, and worthy of legal protection and every accommodation imaginable.

And as I must constantly remind those who think Darwinian evolution is "the basis (or "foundation") of all the biological sciences," just how is it that Louis Pasteur, a strong opponent of Darwin and his theory, operating from a strict biblical worldview, was able to become "the father of microbiology?" As I noted last year, "Pasteur, a microbiologist and chemist, who, along with giving us the process of pasteurization, disproved the theory of spontaneous generation (which put him at odds with Darwin and his work) and was a pioneer in the battle against infectious diseases (leading us to the process of vaccination).

"At times it seems that the (ridiculous) implication is that nothing in science can get done unless it is done from an evolutionary worldview. This is certainly the case in fields related to biology, but many Darwinian evolutionists would have us believe that everything from anesthesiology to zoology rests upon Darwinian evolution. Given that Darwin proposed his theory just over 150 years ago, it's a wonder anything at all was accomplished in science prior to 1850.

"Of course, much was. Generally considered the greatest scientist who ever lived, Isaac Newton--inventor of calculus, and famous for his laws of motion and universal gravitation--was a devout Chrostian and performed his work from a biblical worldview. On gravitation he noted, that 'Gravity explains the motion of the planets, it cannot explain who set the planets in motion. God governs all things and knows all that is or can be done.'"

Additionally, Newton calculated the earth to be only a few thousand years old, and declared that, "For an educated man...any suggestion that the human past extended back further than 6,000 years was a vain and foolish speculation." But of course, this is much better than being an "ignoramus or a coward."
