Video: Darwin and the Birth of “The Science”
Dear brothers and sisters,
The idea is appealing that species gradually evolve through natural selection acting on random variations ; wholly random and chance variations occur and those that are useful are maintained through natural selection. In other words we are the result of chance. Indeed it seems to reflect the reality in which we live. Look out the window! There are start ups occurring all the time. They are weeded out by competition. Only the fittest survive. No need for a creative, directing agency.
What Darwin appears to have done is to project of the “war of all against all” of civil society onto the animal kingdom. Even in Darwin’s time these were difficulties. One small consideration: – The fossil record – It records a sudden explosion of life in the Cambrian era. A myriad of living things came into existence and this largely without antecedents.Whereas, according to Darwin, all life evolved from a simple organism and branched out in a sort of treelike pattern. The fossil record on the other hand, shows most animals appearing at more or less at the same time rather than branching out from a simpler form. The major challenge to the theory of evolution is to explain the large-scale changes that lead from one order or class to another as the transitional forms are absent in the fossil record. Darwin, a man of utmost integrity, acknowledged this; he noted that the fossil record of his time was most imperfect. He postulated that further research and exploration would yield evidence in support of his hypothesis and that if it was not forthcoming it would constitute a rebuttal.
The signature of Darwinism can be said to be this drawing presumed to compress 25 million years of imagined human evolution into a row of progressively taller and more erect primates until finally a human appears.
In my opinion this was the birth of “the science”.
“The science” is used for all manner of things. It is beyond appeal.It is used to justify for all manner of things including lockdowns and social distancing. No matter that this has proven unduly expensive. Science has become a social construct.
A moment ago “the science” assured us that the virus originated in nature; those who conjectured that it was cobbled together in a laboratory were tared and feathered as ”conspiracy theorists".
The stakes are quite high: namely, how do we see ourselves as human beings? What is our place in the universe? What is our role here?
It seems to me that it behooves us to go beyond "the science”, to bring about the desperately needed renewal, regeneration and rebirth of this American earth.
Please accept our best wishes for good health, prosperity and success to you and your family,

Living Tree Community Foods California Heritage Olive Oil is rich in antioxidants. We invite you to rejoice in its robust, sharp flavor. Experience how its pungency enhances the flavors of food.
Our California Heritage Olive Oil has a high available biophenol content: 605 ppm (parts per million) compared with 222 ppm for most extra virgin olive oils. In other words, its biophenol content is 2.7 times the average. Very high phenolic content and excellent stability should provide long shelf life of over a year as well as beneficial health value. This olive oil has, along with its bitterness and pungency, mineral and green vegetable organoleptic characteristics.

It’s also great when mixed with other grains due to its somewhat chewy, contrasting texture.
