The Four Horsemen Fall Flat
In this video, at 34:55 Sam Harris asks what the difference is between someone who assumes something is true because scientists say so and someone who assumes something is true because religious leaders say so; an excellent question. At 37:40 Richard Dawkins answers that we know science is reliable because it makes predictions that then come true. That sounds very reasonable.
Based upon that logic, evolution is false and Judaism is true.
Judaism predicts that if the Jews abandon the Torah they will be horribly punished. This has come true.
Darwin predicted that the “savage races” would soon become extinct while the European race would flourish. This has been proven false.
[Some claim that Darwin said that man originated in Africa and this has been proven true. This is another example of an evolutionist deception. Actually, Darwin merely said, “it is somewhat more probable that our early progenitors lived on the African continent than elsewhere. But it is useless to speculate on this subject; for two or three anthropomorphous apes, one the Dryopithecus (17. Dr. C. Forsyth Major, 'Sur les Singes fossiles trouves en Italie:' 'Soc. Ital. des Sc. Nat.' tom. xv. 1872.) of Lartet, nearly as large as a man, and closely allied to Hylobates, existed in Europe during the Miocene age; and since so remote a period the earth has certainly undergone many great revolutions, and there has been ample time for migration on the largest scale.”]
