On the immorality of Darwin, Hubble and others


Thought of the day, stumbled into at John Wilkins’s site, Evolving Thoughts, “The Demon Spencer”:

Surely that's an avatar, and not really John Wilkins!  It looks like Snowflake.

I wait in vain for a condemnation of Newton’s laws of motion, since they account for so many deaths in virtue of their description of how bullets, speeding automobiles, and the like generate so much energy of impact. F=MA must be immoral.

Where are Richard Weikart, Francis Beckwith and Douglas Groothuis when they could be useful?

Why is it Darwin gets all the flack from fundamentalists, when it was Newton who pushed the angels out of the heavens, Hubble who peeked into the universe’s running without gods?

Wilkins’s post is also useful for his scalpel-like arguments disembowling the claim that Darwin led to Hitler, in comments.
