Creationist Darek Isaacs Wonders Whether Rape Is OK If Evolution Is Real — VIDEO
In case you were thinking of poking around the theory of evolution, beware. After studying the works of Charles Darwin, Christopher Hitchens, E.O. Wilson, and other "purveyors of evolutionary thought," creationist author Darek Isaacs went to a "dark place" that caused him to ask "hard questions." Questions like: If evolution is true, is rape wrong?
Yeah. That happened.
Issacs, appearing on the webcast Creation Today, posed this doozy to the hosts:
You have to start asking questions: Well, if evolution is true, and it’s just all about the male propagating their DNA, we had to ask hard questions, like, well, is rape wrong?
One of the hosts gasped. And if you can make a host for a creationist show gasp while defending creationism, you might have just said something truly heinous. Just a thought.
Undeterred by the reaction, Isaacs continued:
Evolution is about the man propagating their DNA, and applying evolutionary thought to humanity then it’s basically the strongest male takes whoever he can to propagate the DNA, and it is a scary outcome.
Great, so that's settled. Evolution can't be true, because then it would be totally excusable and evolutionarily beneficial for men to rape. You hear that, liberals?
During his studies, Isaacs also found that if evolution were a real thing, marriage would be an "anathema," because it would tie couples down to only one sexual partner.
“According to the evolutionary worldview, [if] that male is strong enough and he had wonderful genes, he should propagate his DNA as much as possible so that the species can progress,” Isaacs said. “So it redefines everything about our society.”
Whew! Alright, so set down that textbook and pick up the Bible. If not, society is going to fall into a bedlam of raping, marriage-less men. Because men in the Bible didn't rape. And they definitely didn't have multiple wives.
While I could be mistaken, I don't think that Darwin wrote anything that remotely resembled that argument. Lumping rape and evolution together was likely what Isaacs thought was a clever way to get everyone to stop asking so many questions. But hey, what can you expect from a man who authored a book that desperately tried to link dinosaurs and humans?
Some people have faith, and I would never look at that as a bad thing. But please don't espouse yours at the expense of trivializing violence against women.
