Michael “Thank God for Evolution!” Dowd confronts the significance of his ministry.

Yes, Michael Dowd, in Thank God for Evolution! writes,

”What the hell are we preaching?!”

In mid February 2007, as my wife and I were in the final editing stages of this book, Connie approached me, her face distraught. [ ... ] She told me that she had been multi-tasking, listening online to the most recent sermon by by one of her favorite ministers. The sermon was on love; it was a practical sermon about how couples – and church congregations – might work to sustain love over the long haul. Connie was exasperated. “It was a good sermon, as far as sermons go,” se said, “But without a grounding in evolutionary psychology, what the hell are we preaching?!”
(p. 189)

  1. A gem of a quote Ms. O’Leary,

    ‘The sermon was on love; it was a practical sermon about how couples – and church congregations – might work to sustain love over the long haul. Connie was exasperated. “It was a good sermon, as far as sermons go,” she said, “But without a grounding in evolutionary psychology, what the hell are we preaching?!”

    ,,,No doubt they shortly talked themselves out of that sobering ‘moment of clarity’;

    ,,,I know what firmly grounds love and is completely antithetical to evolutionary thought, Jesus said:

    John 15:13
    ‘Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.’

  2. …a grounding in evolutionary psychology… is a guarantee of ignorance and blatant stupidity.

    Sorry for stating the obvious, but that is my penchant. When I see transparently speculative BS promoted as “science” I am angered, because these clowns undercut the legitimacy of real scientists, who pursue the truth wherever it leads.

    I count myself among the group of legitimate scientists who finally concluded at one point (after a lifetime predisposition to a materialistic worldview) — through reason, logic, mathematics, and evidence — that Darwinism is a dung heap of empirically unsupported speculation and illogic, inspired by a passion not for science, but a desire to remake reality.

    Evolutionary psychology is the worst of the worst in terms of scientific integrity. It resides at the very bottom of the Darwinian outhouse.
