Darwinism is not merely a support for naturalistic philosophy:
it is a product of naturalistic philosophy.

A constitutional democracy is in serious trouble if

of the implicit religious content in what they are teaching.
- Phillip E. Johnson

Although I insist that God has always had the power
to intervene directly in nature to create new forms,
I am willing to be per-suaded that He chose not to
do so and instead employed secondary natural causes
like random mutation and natural selection.
- Phillip E. Johnson

The restriction of religion to private life therefore
does not necessarily threaten the vital interests of the majority religion,
if there is one, and it protects minority religions
from tyranny of the majority.
- Phillip E. Johnson

The assumption that nature is all there is,
and that nature has been governed by the same rules at all times and places,
makes it possible for natural science to be confident
that it can explain such things as how life began.
- Phillip E. Johnson

Evolutionary biologists are not content merely to explain
how variation occurs within limits,
however.
They aspire to answer a much broader question-which
is how complex organisms like birds,
and flowers, and human beings came into existence in the first place.
- Phillip E. Johnson

The second advantage claimed for naturalism is that
it is equivalent to rationality,
because it assumes a model of reality in which all
events are in principle accessible to scientific investigation.
- Phillip E. Johnson

In the most important sense a creationist is a person
who believes in creation,
and that includes people who believe that Genesis is
a myth and that creation involved a process called
evolution and consumed billions of years.
- Phillip E. Johnson

Evolutionary naturalism takes the inherent limitations
of science and turns them into a devastating philosophical weapon:
because science is our only real way of knowing anything,
what science cannot know cannot be real.
- Phillip E. Johnson

According to the scientific naturalist version of cosmic history,
nature is a permanently closed system of material effects
that can never be influenced by something from outside -
like God,
for example.
- Phillip E. Johnson

If modernist naturalism were true, there would be no
objective truth outside of science.
In that case right and wrong would be a matter of cultural preference,
or political power, and the power already available
to modernists ideologies would be overwhelming.
- Phillip E. Johnson

In short, it is not that evolutionary naturalists have
been less brazen than the scientific creationists in holding science hostage,
but rather that they have been infinitely more effective in getting away with it.
- Phillip E. Johnson

The problem with allowing God a role in the history
of life is not that science would cease,
but rather that scientists would have to acknowledge
the existence of something important which is outside
the boundaries of natural science.
- Phillip E. Johnson
