State Darwin Museum in Moscow Shows True Evolution

00 State Darwin Museum. Moscow. Russia. 20.03.13

His Holiness SHOWS his opinion of modern science in this image… he’s not on the side of the bible-punchers and Young Earthers, that’s for sure!

When the State Darwin Museum first opened in 1907, its collection could fit in just a few cupboards. It’s since expanded into Moscow’s largest natural science museum, capturing the immense diversity of life on Earth. Click here for a 3½ minute vid in English on the museum.

Editor’s Note:

Russian Orthodox people should take note that HH is on the side of modern science, not the six-day-creation nutters. We acknowledge all truth… and the evolution record is there in the fossils… it’s true. Mind you, we don’t subscribe to Spencer‘s oddbod ideology of positivismlaissez-faireutilitarianism, Social Darwinism, and survival of the fittest, nor do we engage in mindless and nihilistic scientism. We don’t hold to perversions of the scientific record to fancy this or that notion. Evolution is true… that’s all that science can tell us. It can’t tell us about God; it can only tell us about physical reality. As for me, I believe that God both used evolution as His “tool” and set it in place as one of the natural laws of the universe… the Church blesses such a stance… it doesn’t bless Young Earth creationism of any sort. If you wish to believe such rot, become an evangelical sectarian… you’d be at home there with your fellow ignoramuses…

22 November 2012. A Point to Ponder… Do You Want to Vote for Those Who Suck Up to “Creationists?”

______________________________

The late election’s barely over, and all the Republican hopefuls for 2016 are lining up to kiss the naked bums of the so-called “Creationists“. That means that, as radical as they were the last time, the GOP intends to be even more obsequious to the Yahoo elements. How can any Orthodox Christian even think of voting for such? The Church stands for the Truth, and nothing truthful can harm it. HH is NOT a Creationist… indeed, he’s an avid follower of modern science. That means that we have to give the Creationists a wide berth. In fact, it’d be best if we gave all the “Evangelicals“, Pentecostalists, Mormons, et al a wide berth, for they’re all the same underneath (as “Evangelical” support for the Mormon sectarian Romney proved to all comers).

Evolution simply says that natural mutations occur, and that healthy mutations lead to development. Most evolution isn’t healthy, and these mutations die out. God created the natural world and its processes. He called it “Good”… so should we.

10 July 2012. Sergei Yolkin’s World. The Evolution of Sex

The Evolution of Sex

Sergei Yolkin

2010

______________________________

In an article published in the journal Science, scientists showed that the evolution of the sexes in simple organisms, such as unicellular algae, began with the isolation and increase of specific gender roles using DNA and incorporating already-existing genes, giving rise to new features. This data provided the first confirmation of a model of the evolution of the two sexes, according to which the development and the increase of the DNA responsible for sexual dimorphism created genetic diversity, followed by giving already- existing genes new functions associated with the production of germ cells. James Youmans, the lead author of the work, a researcher at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, said, “Until now, no one had insights based on experiential observation on how the evolution of sexual dimorphism in a given species took place, and what genetic changes are necessary for it”.
