A brilliant array of scholars responded to the beckoning of the University of Chicago for its Darwin Centennial Celebration, and the resulting galaxy of science celebrities was perhaps the most memorable feature of the gathering. Numbered among approximately 2,500 attendants from 27 countries was another Charles Darwin (grandson of evolution’s bright light), who dolefully predicted that overpopulation and resulting complications would cause a return to hard conditions of life and the diminishing of human intelligence.
But it was another grandson of a famous British scientist who ran off with the headline, and he did it with an old, old story. Sir Julian Huxley, scion of Thomas Huxley, predicted the disappearance of religion—a product of evolution like everything else—from earth, through “competition with other, truer, and more embracing thought organizations.” He saw no “need or room . . . in the evolutionary pattern of thought . . . for supernatural beings capable of affecting the course of events.”
*I just want to add my take on this: No God = No Hope, No Peace, No Life; however, Know God = Know Hope, Know Peace, Know Life!
