How's this for a coincidence? Charles Darwin and Abraham Lincoln were born in the same year, on the same day: Feb. 12, 1809. As historical facts go, it amounts to little more than a footnote. Still, while it's just a coincidence, it's a coincidence that's guaranteed to make you do a double take the first time you run across it. Everybody knows Darwin and Lincoln were near-mythic figures in the 19th century. But who ever thinks of them in tandem? Who puts the theory of evolution and the Civil War in the same sentence? Why would you, unless you're writing your dissertation on epochal events in the 19th century? But instinctively, we want to say that they belong together. It's not just because they were both great men, and not because they happen to be exact coevals. Rather, it's because the scientist and the politician each touched off a revolution that changed the world....
As I said before: "DNA and/or "EBEs" Came From Almighty GOD !
As did This Physical, Material & Cosmological Universe that we now live in.
Which begs to answer the news item's question "Who Was More Important: Lincoln or Darwin?
Which is More Importantly Asked if we quieried: "According To Almighty GOD; Who Is More Important: Lincoln or Darwin?
I say BOTH !
Both are of Equal Eternal, Infinite & Everlasting Importance To Almighty GOD.
Now as to "Alien(s)", especially Extra-Terrestrial Biological Entities (EBE's) and/or Extra-Terrestrials (ETs); they would ALSO be of Great Eternal Importance to Almighty GOD: Or Else He Would NEVER Have Created Them In The First Place......or US !
As I have previously mentioned in other sermonaudio website threads; that my personal Christian Brother/Friend JV has visited extra-terrestrial-biological-entities/beings in another Planet, in another Galaxy in This Universe which has been Created By Almighty GOD.
He also related the experience of his visit & has given me a detailed verbal account of his "2nd heaven" journey.
What I found MOST Amazing is that JV told me These Alien-Creatures-Beings See & Worship (Call/Cry-Out-To) Almighty GOD in Times of Trouble & Consider HIM as Their All-Benevolent FATHER, GUARDIAN & PROTECTOR !
Evolution denies the Genesis message (re-affirmed multiple times in the Old and New Testaments) that: "In the Beginning, God created the heavens and the earth".
Evolution postulates millions and billions of years in the past leading up to present realities. It steers away from acknowledgment of individual accountability to the Creator and Judge.
In the future, there are millions and billions of years and more that each person shall spend in in heaven or hell as a testimony to Almighty God's mercy or justice. There was Creation; there was a fall into law-breaking (sin). Through Jesus Christ, there came atonement and Redemption. Come in faith; eat up and drink up Jesus Christ, the unique God-Man, the one and only Savior-Redeemer.
There is a "great gulf fixed" between the place of comfort and the place of torment. See Luke 16:19-31. That won't evolve. It will stay the same forever.

The late Dr. Francis Crick - co-discoverer of the DNA molecule - was once asked if DNA could have arisen "spontaneously" or "randomly" as is the belief of pure evolutionists. Crick said no, that the chances of a molecule of the complexity of DNA arising in that way was 10 to the 40,000 power. In cosmic terms, that is far, far too miniscule for the theory to be considered. Crick was then asked how DNA came to appear on earth if it could not have just "arisen". The good Doctor's answer was profound! Aliens visited earth and left it here. At that moment, an Episcopal priest in the audience then asked Dr. Crick, "Where did the ALIENS come from?!" Crick announced the interview over and left, never bothering to respond to what was a simple - at least for the priest if not the Doctor - question, to wit: "where did the aliens and their DNA come from?"
To know of Darwin & Lincoln; as they're publicly known (perceived today) is one thing:
But to know Darwin & Lincoln privately (as they were known by those personal to them); especially during their last days is another.
Charles Darwin, According to the Testimony of Lady Hope, said the Following during his latter days on Earth:
"Hebrews!...still (The Bible Book of) Hebrews. 'The Royal Book' I call it. Isn't it grand?"
On His own Theory of Evolution Darwin said:
"I was a young man with unformed ideas. I threw out queries, suggestions, wondering all the time over everything, and to my astonishment, the ideas took like wildfire. People made a religion of them."...
"Then he (Darwin) paused, and after a few more sentences on 'the holiness of God' and the 'grandeur of this book (The Holy Bible-Authorized King James Version)', looking at the Bible which he was holding tenderly all the time, he suddenly said: 'I have a summer house in the garden which holds about thirty people. It is over there', pointing through the open window. 'I want you very much to speak there. I know you read the Bible in the villages. To-morrow afternoon I should like the servants on the place, some tenants and a few of the neighbors; to gather there. Will you speak to them?...(of)Christ Jesus!'"
William Eugene Grimes wrote: Jim Jefferson Davis attended Transylvania College which is affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). It is not a Roman Catholic institution. Jefferson Davis belonged to the Episcopal church. He walked to St. John's Episcopal Church while living in Montgomery. President Davis's pastor in Richmond, Dr.Minnigerode wrote this: "He[Davis] never failed to be there unless he was sick or away from town." And if the Pope appealing to the Federal government for President Davis's release makes him an "almost Catholic" I pray that if you ever get thrown in jail unjustly, that Pope Benedict will appeal for your release. Then the same could be said of you. You need to go back and do your homework on President Davis. See if you can find out who Jim Limber was.
Your right, but I don't believe in the fairy tale of the "Righteous Fundi" any more. Put any two Fundi's on a deserted isle and....'viola!'....instant religious warfare. You guys can't even live with yourselves.
to me, (and many others who've read '50 Years..', the subject is apropos: regarding Lincoln... 50 Years in the "Church" of Rome Conversion Testimony of a Former Catholic Priest
As a child, Chiniquy memorized scriptures at his mother's knee and developed a deep love for God. Becoming a priest, he wanted desperately to place full trust in his "church", but was hit by waves of doubt as his "church" claimed adherence to the Gospel, yet violated it at every turn. His jealous superiors falsely accused him, but Abraham Lincoln, a young lawyer from Illinois, defended him and saved his reputation. Chiniquy proves chapter 61 ---MUST READ that it was the Jesuits who later killed Lincoln, and explains why.
Finally, after 25yrs as priest in the Romanism, his bishop demanded he give up his Bible,& pledge blind obedience to the "church. He was gloriously SAVED(LISTEN to his testimony) , & led almost the entire Catholic population of St. Anne, Illinois to trust in Christ alone.
I understand how you feel. But, I can point to the same occurences of violence against Catholic people. Where does it get us? Tit for tat...move...countermove. For the record, I do not approve of the Inquistions. One does not change one's adversary's mind by cutting off his head. But, you do fill his son and his kinsmen with hatred to fight against you. The years echo with the accusations against the RCC for what they did. It was wrong. Know only that Protestants are capable of such things too and only need the right conditions to commit the same sins, and have. Based on the hatred that I feel on this sight for Catholicism, I think it's only a matter of time before the "Know-Nothings" start burning Churches and beating Clergy. Remember...Anti-Catholicism: America's favorite and longest lasting prejudice.
GG And I am of Czechslovakian descent and it was the Roman Catholic Church that burned the beloved John Huss at the stake and if I had been living there in his day let's be honest the Roman Catholic Church most likely would have come after me as well.
Today, I am a baptist, Yes, one of those born again ones and although I will debate with you don't begin to imagine I would ever harm a hair on your head for your Catholicism. I would die for you but I think you already know as much as I disagree with you, and I greatly disagree with you over Catholicism, I believe it is evil and wrong and therefore have no desire whatsoever to bring any kind "Protestant Inquisiton" against you. If you perish in your sin it will be because you refuse to repent not because like minded baptist types and myself martyerd you.
btw before I was born again that is sadly what I would have wanted to do with you.
