On Darwinism

St. Luke of Simferopol 1877-1961

Darwinism, which declares that man, by means of evolution, has developed from lower species of animals, and is not a product of the creative act of the Godhead, has turned out to be merely a supposition, a hypothesis, which has become obselete even for science. This hypothesis has been acknowledged as contradictory not only to the Bible, but to nature itself, which jealously strives to preserve the purity of each species, and know of no transition even from a sparrow to a swallow. There are no known facts of a transition of an ape into a man. (Science and Religion, Trinity Word. 2001, pp. 41-42)
