What does Thanos, Adolf Hitler, Charles Darwin, and Planned Parent Hood have in common? Eugenics. Let’s start with a simple quote from Avengers Infinity Wars. Thanos smugly states, “[Annihilating half of the population is] A small price to pay for Salvation… This universe is finite, its resources finite. If life is left unchecked, life will cease to exist. It needs correction. I’m the only one who knows that. At least, I’m the only one with the will to act on it." Thanos’ whole narrative was to wipe out half of the universe’s population. He believed that our world was broken and needed correcting. Well, Thanos is correct. Our world does need to be corrected. We are not living in the Marvel universe however we are living in a fallen world. And while Thanos did recognize the problem his solution was incorrect. The person of Jesus Christ is the only one who can correct our fallen state. As Thanos said, "A small price to pay for salvation" I say God paid the ultimate price for our salvation through Christ. We see the Christian world view that says lay down your life that someone might be saved, and the evolutionary world view of survival of the fittest and to take the life of those whom they see as unfit. So what does Thanos have in common with Darwin, Hitler, Plan Parent Hood, and Eugenicists? They all believe there is a master race and that people who look different, don't have the mental capabilities as them, or are even a minority is deemed less human and therefore can be dispose of, or should I say it more plainly murdered.
Simply put, Darwin was a racist and the father of natural selection and the evolutionary theory. Here is a quote by Charles from his book The Descent of Man "At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate and replace throughout the world the savage races. At the same time the anthropomorphous apes, as Professor Schaaffhausen has remarked, will no doubt be exterminated. The break will then be rendered wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilized state as we may hope, than the Caucasian and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of as at present between the negro or Australian and the gorilla.” What a very shameful statement, and yet some of my fellow believers embrace this Darwinian evolution. You need to repent of your ignorance and return to the biblical creation account. I'm not talking about microevolution changes between kinds, but the theory stated in Darwin's books. The kind of theory that produces people like Francis Galton, Hitler, and Margaret Sanger.
In 1883 Francis Galton, in England, coined the term "eugenics" to encompass the idea of a modification of natural selection through selective breeding for the improvement of humankind … —Jeremiah A. Barondess. Eugenics is defined as the practice or advocacy of controlled selective breeding of human populations (as by sterilization) to improve the population's genetic composition.
Francis Galton said, “The publication in 1859 of the Origin of Species by Charles Darwin made a marked epoch in my own mental development, as it did in that of human thought generally. Its effect was to demolish a multitude of dogmatic barriers by a single stroke, and to arouse a spirit of rebellion against all ancient authorities whose positive and unauthenticated statements were contradicted by modern science.”
Influenced by Darwinian Evolution, Eugenics was developed largely by Francis Galton as a method of unnaturally improving the human race by controlling reproduction. We see the logic that comes from Francis is based on evolution, natural selection, and more pointed Darwinism. I do hope to inform my fellow brothers and sisters who embrace this evil teaching of Darwinian Evolution to once again see its hand in the decline of the sanctity of life, reptant and turn back to a Biblical creation account. Francis Galton takes God out of the picture when he states "What nature does blindly, slowly and ruthlessly, man may do providently, quickly, and kindly."
Hitler was a racist who loved the writings of Darwin, and adamantly believed in the need to modify or aid natural selection. This is evident due to the nature of his hideous crimes against the people of WW2. He said, “The stronger must dominate and not mate with the weaker, which would signify the sacrifice of its own higher nature. Only the born weakling can look upon this principle as cruel, and if he does so it is merely because he is of a feebler nature and narrower mind; for if such a law did not direct the process of evolution then the higher development of organic life would not be conceivable at all.” We see that Hitler wanted to speed up the process of natural selection, eliminating the crippled, Mentally handicapped, Jews and Homosexuals. All in the name of one man's theory: Evolution. Hitler’s goal was to make a race of white-skinned, blue-eyed males to become the most powerful race to rule them all, aka the master race. Here is the definition of natural selection "the process whereby organisms better adapted to their environment tend to survive and produce more offspring. The theory of its action was first fully expounded by Charles Darwin and is now believed to be the main process that brings about evolution." We understand and see in nature that Animals adapt to their environment, but never change from their kind. A Dog will always reproduce a dog, and a cat will always reproduce a cat. We would call this Microevolution, Speciation or Adaptation, and no way shape or form has a dog ever evolved into something different than a dog. I am just trying to lay the groundwork of why evolution in a Christian world view makes absolutely no sense because it creates a foundation that scoffs at the sanctity of life and creates a slippery slope that produces men like Adolf Hitler.
Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, hated the black lower class and targeted predominately black communities with her plan parenthood killing factories. Here is a quote from Sanger “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members,” Margaret loved the thought of manipulating natural selection and was a believer of the evolutionary theory. Sangor thought she could speed up the natural selection process. Her targets were lower class, poor, minorities, and immigrants. I believe we as Christians are called to protect all those listed above and more. Darwin was and is the birth of PP again as I have stated above, my dear brothers and sisters who have believed this lie, I beg you to turn from it and stand with those who cannot stand for themselves. The impact of this lie is far more destructive then what I can write in a few words.
The End Game is here, and as I watched it last night we see Thanos the Eugenist VS Avengers the protectors of life. Spoiler alert the good guys win, but it came at a high price of someone's life. In the whole movie, the Avengers are trying to reverse what Thanos has done. Their goal: bring back those whom Thanos killed, and they accomplished it, but it cost a prominent Avenger his life. It is the same thing that Christ has done for His church, He has reversed the curse of sin, and gave us a way to be in a right relationship with our Heavenly Father. You see in most movies we see the same thing over and over again. Good VS. Evil and each time there has to be sacrificed. It’s almost like our need to be saved from evil is written on all of our hearts. So we have to put it up on a big screen, makeup heroes to try and fill that void with entertainment and numb our pain of needing a true savior. Thanos would represent the Evil One, and the Tony Stark, the one who paid the price, a picture of Christ. We see the whole movie builds up to a point of one great battle Good Vs. Evil, Dark Vs. Light and someone has to fold. We see that all looks gloomy and that the Avengers look like they will not win, but out of nowhere Tony Stark gets the Infinity stones, snaps his fingers and Thanos is gone. This is similar to how our Lord Jesus Christ will be, but there will not be a great battle, instead of at the sound of His voice all the wicked will perish and those who are in Christ will stand with Him. Christ is coming back in great power and glory, just like the Avengers I challenge you, dear brothers and sisters, to stand for truth stand for right and leave the false teaching of Evolution behind, and cling back to a biblical world view that does not create people like those listed above.
