Quotations: Evolution Is Exploitation

Book cover for "Planet Earth: Insane Asylum for the Universe"

Evolution Is Propaganda for Capitalism & Exploitation

“Darwinism was an application to the whole of animal and vegetable life of Malthus’s theory of population, which was an integral part of the politics and economics of the Benthamites—a global free competition, in which victory went to the animals that most represented successful capitalists.” —Bertrand Russel, History of Western Philosophy

“This doctrine [evolution], which is now generally accepted, was not new. It has been maintained by Lamarck and Darwin’s grandfather Erasmus, not to mention Anaximander.” —Bertrand Russell, History of Western Philosophy 

Note on False Objections

Scientific argumentation is now lower than journalism, theology, and attorneyism. Scientists now also serve an agenda instead of the truth. Scientists regularly betray their lack of intellectual honesty in science by their “methods” of so-called debunking or refuting arguments not compliant with the current scientific dogma. Watch for the examples provided below.

  • For example, if you argue against evolution based on it being deterministic or necessary, then the “scientist” will use an argument from evolution being based on chance or randomness and vice versa.
  • As another example, if you argue against evolution based on science being fact and experiment-based, then the “scientist” will use an argument from science being based on propositions and theories and vice versa.
  • Like all lies, the lie of evolution is slippery and without conscience.

Quotations from Charles Darwin

“When we descend to details, we can prove that no species has changed (i.e. we cannot prove that a single species has changed); nor can we prove that the supposed changes are beneficial, which is the groundwork of the theory.” –Charles Robert Darwin

“Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely graduated organic change; and this, perhaps, is the most obvious and gravest objection which can be urged against any theory [of evolution].” —Charles Robert Darwin

“To suppose that the eye, with all of its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest possible degree.” —Charles Robert Darwin

“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change.” —Charles Darwin

Quotations from Scientists

“Almost all the questions of interest to speculative minds are such as science cannot answer.” —Bertrand Russell

“Are there really laws of nature or do we believe in them only because of our innate love of order?” —Bertrand Russell

“But science, unadulterated, is not satisfying; men also need passion and art and religion.” —Bertrand Russell

“Darwin now poses a final challenge. Whether biology will rise to this last one as well as it did to the first, when his theory upset every apple cart, remains to be seen. How cleanly and quickly can the filed get over Darwin, and move on? This is one of the most important questions facing science in the twenty-first century.” —David Gelernter, Claremont Review of Books

“Darwinism is no longer just a scientific theory but the basis of a worldview, and an emergency religion for the many troubled souls who need one.” —David Gelernter, Claremont Review of Books

“Every genuine test of a theory is an attempt to falsify it, or to refute it. Testability is falsifiability; but there are degrees of testability: some theories are more testable, more exposed to refutation, than others; they take, as it were, greater risks.” —Karl Popper

“Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe—a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble.” —Albert Einstein

“From the historical point of view, what is interesting is Darwin’s extension to the whole of life of the economics that characterized the philosophical radicals. The motive force of evolution, according to him, is a kind of biological economics in a world of free competition.” —Bertrand Russell, History of Western Philosophy

“Hume was perfectly right in pointing out that induction cannot be logically justified.” —Karl Popper

“I am quite sure that our views on evolution would be very different had biologists studied genetics and natural selection before and not after most of them were convinced that evolution had occurred.” ―J.B.S. Haldane

“I would rather have questions that can’t be answered than answers that can’t be questioned.” —Richard Feynman

“’Idols of the theater’, the distorting influence of prevailing philosophical and scientific dogma.” —Francis Bacon

“If you thought before that science was certain, well that is just an error on your part.” —Richard Feynman

“In the sciences, the authority of thousands of opinions is not worth as much as one tiny spark of reason in an individual man.” —Galileo Galilei (1564–1642)

“Invoking an infinity of unseen universes to explain the unusual features of the one we do see is just as ad hoc as invoking an unseen Creator.” —Paul Davies, theoretical physicist

“It is important to realize that in physics today, we have no knowledge of what energy is. We do not have a picture that energy comes in little blobs of a definite amount. It is an abstract thing in that it does not tell us the mechanism or the reasons for various formulas.” —Richard Phillips Feynman, Six Easy Pieces

“It is the weight, not numbers of experiments that is to be regarded.” —Isaac Newton

“Not only is the Universe stranger than we think, it is stranger than we can think.” —Werner Heisenberg, Across the Frontiers

“One can sum up all this by saying that the criterion of the scientific status of a theory is its falsifiability, or refutability, or testability.” —Karl Popper

“Science has neither a rational basis nor an empirical basis.” —David Hume (constructed from A Treatise of Human Nature)

“Science may be described as the act of systematic oversimplification.” —Karl Popper

“Science tells us what we can know, but what we can know is little, and if we forget how much we cannot know we become insensitive to many things of very great importance.” —Bertrand Russell

“Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind.” —Albert Einstein, 1879-1955

“That there is indeed a limit upon science is made very likely by the existence of questions that science cannot answer and that no conceivable advance of science would empower it to answer… It is not to science, therefore but to metaphysics, imaginative literature or religion that we must turn for answers to questions having to do with first and last things.” ―Peter Medawar, The Limits of Science

“The concept does not exist for the physicist until he has the possibility of discovering whether or not it is fulfilled in an actual case.” —Albert Einstein

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” —Nikola Tesla

“The empirical basis of objective science has nothing ‘absolute’ about it. Science does not rest upon solid bedrock. The bold structure of its theories rises, as it were, above a swamp. It is like a building erected on piles. The piles are driven down from above into the swamp, but not down to any natural or ‘given’ base; and if we stop driving the piles deeper, it is not because we have reached firm ground. We simply stop when we are satisfied that the piles are firm enough to carry the structure, at least for the time being.” —Karl Popper, The Logic of Scientific Discovery

“The first gulp from the glass of natural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you.” ―Werner Heisenberg, awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1932 for “the creation of quantum mechanics”

“The multi-universe theory may be dressed up in scientific language, but in essence, it requires the same leap of faith.” —Paul Davies, theoretical physicist

“The reality we can put into words is never reality itself.” ―Werner Heisenberg

“Things alter for the worse spontaneously, if they be not altered for the better designedly.” —Francis Bacon

“This doctrine [evolution], which is now generally accepted, was not new. It has been maintained by Lamarck and Darwin’s grandfather Erasmus, not to mention Anaximander.” —Bertrand Russell, History of Western Philosophy

“To help create a brand new form of organism, a mutation must affect a gene that does its job early and controls the expression of other genes that come into play as the organism grows. Evidently there are a total of no examples in the literature of mutations that affect early development and the body plan as a whole and are not fatal.” —David Gelernter, Claremont Review of Books

“We know nothing at all. All our knowledge is but the knowledge of schoolchildren. The real nature of things we shall never know.” —Albert Einstein

Quotations from Various Sources

Organized Alphabetically

“All human knowledge takes the form of interpretation.” —Walter Benjamin

“All that we know is nothing, we are merely crammed waste-paper baskets, unless we are in touch with that which laughs at all our knowing.” —David Herbert Lawrence, 1885-1930

“All things are subject to interpretation. Whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.” —Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

“An adherent of evolution should maintain that not only the doctrine of equality of all men, but also that of the rights of man, must be condemned as unbiological, since it makes too emphatic a distinction between men and animals.” —Bertrand Russell, History of Western Philosophy

“Cynicism–the intellectual cripple’s substitute for intelligence.” —Joseph Russell Lynes, Jr., 1910–1991

“Darwinism was an application to the whole of animal and vegetable life of Malthus’s theory of population, which was an integral part of the politics and economics of the Benthamites—a global free competition, in which victory went to the animals that most represented successful capitalists.” —Bertrand Russel, History of Western Philosophy

“From the historical point of view, what is interesting is Darwin’s extension to the whole of life of the economics that characterized the philosophical radicals. The motive force of evolution, according to him, is a kind of biological economics in a world of free competition.” —Bertrand Russell, History of Western Philosophy

“How could that which is, be born of that which is not?” —Upanishads, Second Khanda

“It is notorious, universally so, that the blackest of falsehoods are ever decked out in the most brilliant and gorgeous regalia.” —Ragnar Redbeard

“Nothing can be produced out of nothing.” —Diogenes of Apollonia, fragment

“Nothing comes out of that which is nothing.” —Marcus Aurelius

“One should not wrongly reify ’cause’ and ‘effect,’ as the natural scientists do (and whoever, like them, now ‘naturalizes’ in his thinking), according to the prevailing mechanical doltishness which makes the cause press and push until it ‘effects’ its end; one should use ’cause’ and ‘effect’ only as pure concepts, that is to say, as conventional fictions for the purpose of designation and communication—not for explanation.” —Friedrich Nietzsche

“Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort.” —John Ruskin

“Species do not evolve towards perfection: the weak always prevail over the strong–simply because they are the majority, and because they are also the more crafty. Darwin forgot the intellect (that is English!), the weak have more intellect. In order to acquire intellect, one must be in need of it. One loses it when one no longer needs it.” —Friedrich Nietzsche

“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.” —William Shakespeare, 1546-1616

“The goal of all life is death.” —Sigmund Freud

“The essential characteristic of philosophy, which makes it a study distinct from science, is criticism.” —Bertrand Russell, The Problems of Philosophy

“This doctrine [evolution], which is now generally accepted, was not new. It has been maintained by Lamarck and Darwin’s grandfather Erasmus, not to mention Anaximander.” —Bertrand Russell, History of Western Philosophy

“Thus the greater part of what would commonly pass as knowledge is more or less probable opinion.” —Bertrand Russell, The Problems of Philosophy

“With most men, unbelief in one thing springs from blind belief in another.” —Georg Christopher Lichtenberg, 1742-1799

“O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:” —I Timothy 6:20

“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” —Hebrews 11:3

Quotations from Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

Organized Alphabetically

“According to evolution, there is no necessity for life; therefore, life should not have started, should not exist today, and should not continue tomorrow.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“According to evolutionary theory, life is about species vain attempts to make themselves into perpetual motion machines: eternal.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“According to the atheist, evolution has plans and purposes but life itself does not.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“According to the atheist, evolution is driven by meaning but life itself is not.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“According to the atheist, evolution is obsessed with superiority like all good fascist system.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“According to the evolutionists, the beginning and ending of all things is death.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“All species should seek death because that conforms to the Universe’s intention according to science.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Darwin couldn’t explain the Cambrian explosion of new species without ancestors and scientists today still cannot explain it according to the gospel of Evolution.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Despite science claiming “nothing” a.k.a. evolution knows, does, and is something, there is no empirical evidence for nothing.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Empiricism has two forms: internal and external. There are also two forms of a fool: those that have faith only in internal empiricism (mystic) or those that have faith only in external empiricism (atheist).” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Epigenetic and genome theories easily confuse simple-minded evolutionary theories.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Evolution cannot begin to account for the extravagances of ‘nature’ for beauty and intricacy.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Evolution is a form of insane optimism that never encountered Murphy’s Law.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Evolution is a magical misunderstanding, misrepresentation, and misinterpretation of the facts of species adaptability, variability, and commonality.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Evolution is not a fact because facts are based on evidence, and there is no evidence that life came from nothing by nothing for nothing.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Evolution is the excuse scientists foster in order to continue to freely create without worrying about the consequences of what they make or for being responsible for the monstrosities they make.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Evolution is the superstitious belief in the ability of nothing to know something, to do something, and to be something.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Evolution is the superstitious belief in unseen forces and powers that can never be known or verified.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Evolution is what you get when you interpret the law of variation to mean fantastic things never seen nor proved.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Evolution like astrology takes real data and then forces a superstitious interpretation over that data.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Evolutionists should all visit and play at casinos because they have infinite faith in chance, luck, and randomness to produce positive results despite the infinite odds against instances of luck synergistically combining, grouping, and working together.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“First, you tell the evolution fanatics that their demigod Evolution has no purpose, but the fanatics then claim its purpose is survival. Next, you tell these blind-believers that survival has no purpose, then the blind say that survival is the purpose of survival. This is circular nonsense because there is no reason to value survival or to make it important in a dead, uncaring, and unreasoning universe, which is how these devotees describe their god (the universe or nature).” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“How did evolution get its intentions, plans, and purposes if life itself does not have any? Where did evolution’s meaning and purpose come from? Why does evolution’s purpose exist?” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Matter is passive, not active; therefore, matter has no ability or reason to create anything.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Nature’s main rule and principle is balance, ecology, or homeostasis. Evolution’s main rule is change, disruption, or imbalance. Therefore, evolution is not from nature which provides variation only within systems.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“No, not a trillion monkeys typing on typewriters for a trillion years or more will produce one work of Shakespeare. It is statistically impossible.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Nowhere in Nature or life does anything living come into being except from something already living. Nowhere in Nature or life does anything come from nothing, but always and only from something. Truth is only life from life. Truth is only something from something. But atheists, scientists, and evolutionists all have superstitious beliefs of the unprovable, unverifiable, and nonexistent opposite.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Of course if you are evolution, then you are capable of creating the human eye simply by making ever more mistakes. If this somehow contradicts all of your empirical and experimental experience, then you must be making another mistake.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Plants have beauty in every part and at every level of design; however, if it were up to the imagined power of evolution, then plants would be a freak show most of the time since evolution would never think to require so much useless beauty.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Survival for survival’s sake is the ‘first cause’ for the religion of Evolution.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Survival is the god of Evolution.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“The challenge of producing change in species is the challenge of producing new effective DNA code and that is mathematically beyond the realm of possible permutations within the time limits of survival.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“The law of non-repetition accounts for all the misinterpretations and distortions of evolutionary theory.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“The mosquito clan wishes to evolve so plans to make an annoying sound that will make animals want to kill it even if it doesn’t bite them and that will also warn animals of its presence. This gene is passed down from generation to generation to encourage survival.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“The theory of evolution is maintained by the fear of not having an alternative to creationism.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“The unexamined premise of evolutionary theory is that there is a purpose or a reason for survival. That is, evolution theories inherently claim that survival exists for its own sake. However, for matter or the universe, there can be no function, purpose, or reason for surviving, continuing to survive, or seeing to it that your genes continue to survive. Survival simply has no meaning of or on its own.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“The universe is an effect, product, or work. Any fool knows that, that which is caused is not caused by itself.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“There is no reason for any species to prefer life over death, to prefer improvements in survivability over detriments to survivability.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“There is nothing permanent except variation.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice
