Martin Luther; The Man, The Myth, The Creationist

31 07 2006

Here’s an interesting article which attempts to disprove the theory of evolution in favor of intelligent design by showing that Martin Luther rejected evolution and would only accept the account of creation found in the book of Genesis.

Scripture deals with major aspects for both the visible and invisible parts of creation. Scripture therefore is a greater authority than science, he argued. Martin Luther’s grasp of the scientific method was far ahead of his time.

While it would be almost impossible to count the flaws in this argument, the two most glaring ones are:

1. Darwin would publish his Origins of Species 342 years after Luther nailed his thesis on the doors of the church.

2. If we could cite the scientific ideas of any age as proof of natural phenomenon today, the earth would still be flat, doctors would still be ‘bleeding’ patients, and all of the technology of today wouldn’t exist.

It must be weird to want something to be true so badly that you’re willing to lie, cheat, and ignore logic so blatantly. But if that’s what makes them happy, who am I to argue?
