  • Do you suppose they are implying that Christians have tried to "crucify" Darwinism? That's my only guess. :-)

  • Who knows, Jan! It's really too wierd for me. To me it kinda suggests that Jesus evolved from an ape! Or it's trying to turn around the idea that evolution reduces us to glorified apes by suggesting that apes evolved into something...glorified. Or, it's trying to glorify evolution. Or something like that. Whatever -- it's wierd!

  • Have you seen the play (or the movie)? It pits "reason" against "faith," with reason being triumphant.

    This is a very interesting placard... I've not seen this classic progression (from the ape-like creature to human) done in such a manner before. If all that exists is matter, then it makes sense that even our faith is simply an effect of various deterministic causes (in the same manner as our upright stance is an effect of the various causes based on natural selection).

    A classic evolutionist will tell you that methodological naturalism only applies to the natural realm and, thus, does not address abstract areas such as faith... yet, implications such as portrayed by this placard, while not mandated by their logic, remain.

    It would appear, from their point of view, that faith is ultimately subservient to reason.
