The Atheists Know . . . Why Christianity Has to Fight Evolution


Originally published in Creation 11, no 4 (September 1989): 36.

An atheist explains why Christians must fight evolution.

“Christianity has fought, still fights, and will continue to fight science to the desperate end over evolution, because evolution destroys utterly and finally the very reason Jesus’ earthly life was supposedly made necessary. Destroy Adam and Eve and the original sin, and in the rubble you will find the sorry remains of the Son of God. If Jesus was not the redeemer who died for our sins, and this is what evolution means, then Christianity is nothing.”


G. Richard Bozarth, “The Meaning of Evolution”, American Atheist, p. 30. 20 September 1979.
