Terrorism and Evolution

Evolutionary thinking and social Darwinism have given us such joys as justification for abortion, radical environmentalism, forced eugenics, the "junk" DNA fiasco, a basis for communism, excuses for racism, and more. Now taking the naturalistic view to a new low, ISIS terrorists are players in the evolution game.

Evolutionary thinking as yielded much foolishness. Now some are thinking that they can deal with terrorism through naturalistic evolutionary means.

Sidewinder scientists are using concepts of natural selection and evolution and applying them to Mohammedan terrorism. Ideology is omitted, as is religion, human nature, free will, and other factors. It's just a matter of environment. They are not created human souls in need of prayer, repentance, and salvation in Jesus Christ (how many evolutionists believe that?), but players in a game. Indeed, terrorists are almost made to sound like victims!
This may be the winning candidate for worst Darwinian just-so story of the decade.

You have to hand it to evolutionists; at least they are consistent. If everything evolves, then everything evolves. Makes perfect sense. But a corollary is that there is no such thing as an ideology. Human beings are mere pawns of evolutionary forces that use them to play “games” (according to the game-theoretic version of Darwinian evolution).

One of the most extreme examples of applying Darwinian theory to everything can be seen in a new paper by 10 academics from the University of Florida and Harvard University about “online ecology” including “ISIS and beyond”. To them, the Islamic State evolves like any other biological ecosystem. Published in Science, this paper utilizes the terminology one would expect in a paper about the Darwinian evolution of a forest community or a population of predators and prey in the soil.
