Dr. Jerry Bergman
The Dark Side of Charles Darwin
Grace Ev. Lutheran Church
3030 W. Oklahoma Avenue
Dr. Jerry Bergman, PhD will give a two-part presentation. In part 1 he will elaborate on a book he has written entitled The Dark Side of Darwin. After a short break he will explain Atheism as it is found in the teachings of science. We are bringing Jerry all the way from Ohio for this presentation so we hope many of you will be coming to hear why the Creation view of Origins is so important in this day when the media and public education disallows any view other than evolution to explain how all life has come about in this world of ours.
•Charles Darwin’s major goal in developing his theory was religious, he wanted to "murder" god (his words).
•He was active in "converting" all he could to his theory of origins.
•Darwin plagiarized most of his major ideas.
•Darwin was a racist of the worst kind and believed the races he considered lower would go extinct.
•Darwin was opposed to helping the sick, but realized this idea would not go over well.
•Charles felt a wife was better than a dog (really!).
•He was severely mentally and physically ill, likely an agoraphobic.
•As a young man he was sadistic and loved to kill animals with anything he had: guns, sticks, even hammers!
•It is well known and well recognized that evolution is the doorway to Atheism.
•About 98 % of leading life scientists are Atheist.
•A major reason given to become an Atheist was evolution.
•The whole point of the evolution creation account is to demolish the theistic creation account.
•It takes more faith to be an Atheist than a Creationist.
•Dr. Bergman will cover the Atheist creation story as developed by Hawking and others to document this.
•Orthodox Evolution is defined as from nothing to everything purely by chance, time, and the outworking of natural law (which also originated by chance, time and natural law).
Dr. Jerry Bergman has taught biology, genetics, chemistry, biochemistry, anthropology, geology, and microbiology at Northwest State College in Archbold, Ohio, for over 17 years. He has 9 degrees, including 7 graduate degrees. Dr. Bergman is a graduate of the Medical College of Ohio, Wayne State University in Detroit, the University of Toledo, and Bowling Green State University. He has over 800 publications in 12 languages and 20 books and monographs. He has also taught at the Medical College of Ohio, where he was a research associate in the Department of Experimental Pathology, as well as at the University of Toledo and Bowling Green State University. You may have seen some of his articles in creation-oriented periodicals. His journey to faith in Christ involved becoming a 'heretic' to Jehovah's Witnesses, then to Atheism. His examination of the scientific evidence for evolution led to ... Christ! But what scientific evidence could cause a serious scholar to abandon Atheism? And, what happens to those who do? Among his publications are a monograph on peer evaluation, a Fastback on the creation-evolution controversy, books on vestigial organs, psychology and religious cults, religious discrimination and mental health. He has also contributed to dozens of textbooks. In addition, he has presented over 100 scientific papers in the U.S., Canada, and Europe and has been a featured speaker on college campuses throughout the U.S. and Europe. Dr. Bergman documented the discrimination cases that were featured in the Ben Stein film Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.
Being politically incorrect can be fatal to anyone’s career – especially when you’re a scientist and your brand of political incorrectness is doubting Darwin. As one reviewer said, "Dr. Bergman's detailed and wide-ranging assessment of the state of intellectual freedom to question Darwinian evolution from a scientific or a religious perspective, is a valuable resource for the growing intelligent design controversy. The case studies show clear evidence that many university officials and faculty are deeply afraid of intellectual freedom on this subject, raising the question of just what role Darwinian evolution plays in society today. Is it really a theory in science or a play for power by an outdated elite?" (Amazon.com, Denyse O'Leary)
