How social justice and evolution are incompatible

A liberal friend put up something on her Facebook page today that made me think. It was of a hand-written sign posted in a person’s window. The sign said:

The 99% refers in large part to a movement called Occupy Wall Street. Wikipedia explains the Occupy movement:

"The main issues raised by Occupy Wall Street were social and economic inequality, greed, corruption and the perceived undue influence of corporations on government—particularly from the financial services sector. The OWS slogan, We are the 99%, refers to income inequality and wealth distribution in the U.S. between the wealthiest 1% and the rest of the population."

So the Occupy people are hot for taking from the rich to give to the poor so the poor will survive.

Next thought:

Evolution is one thing when applied to animals...
Many liberals also believe in the theory of evolution, in which the survival of the fittest is an important element. In this theory, it can be summed up using the Online Free Dictionary that "Natural selection conceived of as a struggle for life in which only those organisms best adapted to existing conditions are able to survive and reproduce."

Now here is my question. The Occupy Movement is consumed with rendering ‘economic equality’ for all citizens, so that they all have an equal chance at survival, and no one has a benefit or a leg up on another guy. However, as liberals are almost uniformly believers in evolution also, doesn’t social justice contradict evolution’s survival of the fittest?

In other words, why aren’t liberals making signs on their Facebook page that say to the medicare guy of the 99% “Die, old man, so the species can survive! Yay species! Only the fittest survive! There'll be more for the rest of us!"
But when evolution is applied to modern humans,
it's a different story altogether

Of course I am being facetious. I personally do not subscribe to any of the above positions (Occupy Wall Street, Evolution, or forced charity.) I am simply pointing out the inherent foolishness of the worldly philosophies and the fact that anyone can see that they contradict each other. They are illogical singly and in total.

Colossians 2:8 says "Don't let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ." (NLT)

Why not let let anyone capture you with empty philosophies? For the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God. As the Scriptures say, "He traps the wise in the snare of their own cleverness." (1 Corinthians 3:19)

As Paul put it, "Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds." (Ephesians 4:17).

We're so grateful that the Light has come into our minds, so we can see the truth of God and the beauty of Christ. Praise Jesus that our thoughts are not futile, but fruitful.

  1. Good point! I am also wondering how evolutionists explain music--that one is going to be very interesting.

  2. Obamacare's 'death panels,' euthanasia or MD assisted suicide and required end of life discussions between MD's and the elderly are means the liberals are using to accomplish 'survival of the fittest.'
