: WHAT IS "THE SPELL OF DARWINISM"?
Imagine yourself meeting a person who seems very reasonable and cultured.
You'd naturally think that whatever this person says is a reflection of
the culture and intelligence you assume him to have. But when he begins
to speak, even though you perceive no other change in his reasonable demeanor,
he startles you with his incredible nonsense. He may insist that white
is just a lighter shade of black, for example, or claim that the clouds
in the sky are simply huge bunches of cotton. He believes things that
no reasonable person with normal awareness and judgment could believe.
He claims it is raining even though the sun is shining; and if you take
him outside and show him the evident sunlight, still he persists in his
claim that rain is falling and he even declares that he's getting wet!
If you saw such a person, you could describe him in several ways. You
might say he was being illogical, deluded, or even that he'd lost lost
his mind, or even that he was crazy. You might even say that he seemed
to be under a spell and to have no clear view of reality.
This term "under a spell" is very significant. Some ordinary people resort
to various kinds of magic spells and incantations to make others do something
they wouldn't ordinarily want to do; to control them; make them believe
irrational things, get them to harm another person; and to put them into
something akin to a state of hallucination where they remain unaware of
what they're doing. In short, the whole purpose of a spell is to bring
someone under another's control and to make him believe the most unlikely,
This book's title, The Dark Spell of Darwinism, comes from this very
analogy. The goal of Darwinism is to get people to reject the obvious
fact of Creation, which is clearly evident and assured, and to believe
in the myth embodied in the theory of evolution. When someone falls under
the spell of Darwinism, he also comes under the control of those who support
the theory of evolution. Darwinism, and the theory of evolution, are incredible
and illogical beliefs; they are like the proposition that that black is
a chance byproduct of the changes that white undergoes, over time. But
over the past 150 years, countless individuals have adopted these ideas
passionately, and nothing can convince them to give them up. All the scientific
evidence and plain facts in the world haven't been able to free them from
this spell's influence. It is as if they've been bewitched to believe
that it is raining when the sun is out and to insist that they are getting
At this point, perhaps you think it might be more appropriate to describe
the Darwinists' inner condition as a deficiency of mental or conceptual
ability, instead of as a spell. But those who believe in Darwinism include
educated individuals, professors and even Nobel Prizewinners. Rather than
indicating any lack of conceptual ability, their attachment to Darwinism
shows that they are under some kind of spell.
The purpose of this book is to rescue people from Darwinism's influence
by revealing the exact ways in which it effects its persuasions and by
uncovering the efforts that Darwinists make to prevent this illusion from
losing its power. At the same time, we'll help you employ your own conscience
and intelligence to consider-and understand-the self-evident fact of Creation.
Anyone who's been rescued from the spell of Darwinism and grasps the
reality of Creation will also understand that God, the Lord of all the
Worlds, has created him as well. This fact is the greatest import, because
the sole purpose for the world's coming into existence is so that for
people may come to know God and serve Him.
