Prime Minister of Japan makes a case for eugenics

Proverbs 6:16-19 ESV

There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.

If the sound for an alarm has gone unheeded from those in the anti abortion movement, it is coming fast and furious, and loud and clear, and unashamedly and very unapologetically from heads of governments such as Mr. Taro Aso.

The Huffington Post reports:

A senior minister in the Japanese government ignited a firestorm of controversy after commenting recently on his country’s famously long-lived population.

Minister of Finance Taro Aso said Monday that Japanese elderly were creating a financial problem due to the amount of government funding needed for their medical care, reports Time.

„Heaven forbid if you are forced to live on when you want to die. I would wake up feeling increasingly bad knowing that [treatment] was all being paid for by the government,” Aso, himself 72, said. „The problem won’t be solved unless you let themhurry up and die.”

Aso, who also serves as the country’s deputy prime minister, made the inflammatory remarks Monday, during a meeting of the National Council on Social Security Reforms.

Dr. Emil Silvestru – The Darwin Delusion

A lecture by Dr. Emil Silvestru, Romania’s foremost Geologist, born and raised in communist Romania, who founded the world’s first Speleological Institute (speleology is the study of caves) lectures on Charles Darwin who also was a speleologist at the beginning of his career. Dr. Silvestru recounts Darwin’s life and work and the influences that formed him during his lifetime. This lecture gives many historical details spanning several continents and detailing the prevailing philosophies and politics of Darwin’s time concluding with Darwin’s influence on eugenics- including abortion.

A tip for playing the video. Press the play button, wait 5 seconds and press the stop button. Wait a few minutes for the play bar to start downloading on your computer and then press start. For some reason, when the video stopped for me I got a green screen and I had to refresh the page and wait for the play bar to re load again so I could go back to the minute mark where it originally stopped. The video is well worth watching though, so please be patient.

Dr. Emil Silvestru – „The Darwin Delusion” – September 27th, 2009 Evening Service from Peoples Montreal on Vimeo.

Dr. Emil Silvestru’s bio – Emil earned his Ph.D in geology at the Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj, Romania, (where he has worked as an associate professor) in karst sedimentology. An authority on the geology of caves, he has written one book (The Cave Book), published over 48 peer-reviews scientific articles, and co-authored three books: Terra – Catastrophe Naturale (Terra – Natural Catastrophes), The Geologic Column: Perspectives within Diluvial Geology and Rock Solid Answers.

Before moving into full-time creation ministry in 1997 Emil was the head scientist at the worlds first Speleological Institute (speleology = the study of caves) in Cluj. His areas of expertise include: karstology, sedimentology, geology and hydrogeology of limestone terranes, cave glaciology, show cave assessment & design, exploration and geology of metamorphic ore deposits.He has over 30 years experience in climbing and spelunking, educating many young spelunkers and mountain climbing devotees as well as participating in mountain and cave rescue operations.

After becoming a Christian in 1994, Emil began to re-think previously held views on the age of the earth. In particular he became interested in studying the geological processes that resulted from the world-wide flood recorded in Genesis. He became convinced that the flood provided exceptional conditions that greatly accelerated the geological processes commonly thought to take millions of years. In January 2002 he immigrated to Canada from Romania with his family. Emil now works full-time for Creation Ministries International-Canada as a researcher, writer and speaker. (Read it in its entirety here – http://creation.com/emil-silvestru, including links to his published scientific papers )

In the summer of 2012 Emil suffered a stroke from which he has not yet fully recovered. Please pray for Dr. Silvestru.

John Lennox – Is faith delusional? Atlanta Civic Center (Classic lecture)

John Lennox has a multi media apologetics page at Monergism.com

Introduction excerpt from lecture in video below:

John Lennox:   Honorable Governor of Georgia, ladies and gentlemen- It is a delight for me to be invited to address you this evening and of course as you know, to every lecture belongs a biography. I am an ulster Irishman, of Scottish descent, with an English wife and Welsh children, and Scottish grandchildren. And, so I can moderately claim to represent the United Kingdom.

I turned up in Cambridge in the middle of last century, to study mathematics and in my first week as a student, one of my fellow students said to me, „Do you believe in God?” Then he said, „Oh sorry, I forgot. You’re Irish. They all believe in God there and they fight about it.”

And that raised in my mind, not for the first time, the question under discussion tonight.

Was my faith in God simply a product of my Irish heredity and genetics? My parents were believers in God. And, so were my grandparents. So, automatically I take on their faith. And, so I wanted to know the answer to the question.And I set about on my first days as a student at Cambridge to get to know people who did not share my worldview. So I started to discuss with atheists. That led me to learn the German language and travel for twenty odd years behind the iron curtain. It led me also to learn Russian and spend the last twenty years in many discussions and debates at Universities and Academies of Science in the former Soviet Union in order to understand what it is that motivates atheism.

So that is my background and it has led me recently to debate with Dawkins and Hitchens.

This event took place in 2009. Subject: Faith, reason and evidence.(Some interesting anecdotal evidence from communist times lived behind the Iron Curtain and evidence for the delusion of atheism) John Lennox is Professor of Mathematics in the University of Oxford and adjunct Lecturer at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford University and at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics.
