Baby Yoda and Evolution

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

This is not a review of Star Wars-related entertainment, although I did like the first three movies that were released (Episodes 4, 5, 6) somewhat. However, an evolutionist took a notion to use an almost fanatical devotion to Darwin and commence to asserting that The Child ("Baby Yoda") figures into human evolution.

Some evolutionists think that Baby Yoda and other babies are the product of evolution. There is no science involved.

Some time ago, we looked at the science of cuteness and how evolutionists have tried to make it seem that we evolved to respond to cute things. We like babies. Near the first of the year, stores are filled with calendars, and you can expect to see some of baby animals. Someone offers to show pictures of their children or grandchildren, and people (usually the women folk) make ooh and aww noises over them. I find other ways to be occupied. From my observations it seems that males are less inclined to involve themselves in the adoration of infants.

All of this is supposedly based on an evolutionary urge to respond to cuteness. Uh, define cute. It's not objective, it's subjective. Look on YouTube for "cute" and you'll find many different things, especially animals. Mr. Bean's teddy bear is cute to some people. The entire evolution cuteness "argument" has nothing to do with science or logic.
A woman got on a bus holding her baby. The bus driver said, "Wow, that's got to be the ugliest baby I've ever seen!"

The woman angrily slammed her coins into the fare box and took a seat. The man sitting next to her asked what was wrong. "The bus driver insulted me," she fumed.

The man sympathized with her and said, "Why, he's a public servant and shouldn't say things to insult passengers."

"You're right," she said. "I think I'll go back up there and tell him off!"

"Yes, you do that," the man said. "Here, let me hold your monkey."
The cuteness idea is based on circular reasoning and the presupposition of human evolution. The provocative title of an article indicates that we evolved to love The Child. Not hardly! We are created in God's image, and neither that truth nor the possibility that God gave us an appreciation of cute things may simply be a gift from him, those considerations to not enter the minds of materialists.

From here, I'll turn you over to Dr. Mohler, whose The Briefing podcast was the inspiration for this article. He has some very interesting things to say. I'd be much obliged if you would click on "Why Do Humans Love Babies? Evolutionists and Christians Answer the Question Differently" to listen or read the transcript. The next segment about the child saved from the mountain lion is also interesting.
