Adapt comes from the Latin 'adaptare' - to fit, adjust. It derives from ad- (direction, tendency, or addition) and 'apt' (inclined, disposed, prone; or its archaic meaning - prepared, ready, willing.) To the extent that evolution assumes that living creatures are adjusting themselves to their physical environment, it assumes that localised conditions will have determined the progress of earth's history. Looking at this from the point of view of human intellect, what happens when a human goes toward inclination or being prone?

Superstition, in contrast, means "over standing". In the hypnotised state, counting backwards or walking up stairs effects a closure to the session and a return to waking consciousness. However, there's also the aspect of the authority that has ordained the hypnosis session to begin with. A lot of superstitions and fables seem to involve what's over you - mistletoe, ladders, sour grapes etc. In the Bible account of the crossing through the Red Sea, the Egyptians, being a superstitious people, would likely have seen the sea as being something at their command.

Likewise, humankind has tended to view itself as gliding over the surface of the earth, setting up boundary markers for territory, and then using a parochial ideology to justify mining the earth in a hungry, angry way. (Maybe they should make up with their parents.) According to iziko: Museums of Capetown, "Phosphate mining operations at Langebaanweg uncovered one of the richest fossil sites in the world."

The Bible offers two choices, as it divides its attention between extolling the virtues of feeding at God's temple and avoiding the table of the demons. The word demon is apparently derived from daiesthai - to distribute. Joseph is a well-known example of somebody who gathered and distributed righteously in the Bible. In Ephesians 6:12, kosmokrator is translated "spiritual forces of evil" in the New International Version. It is comprised of kosmos - "an apt and harmonious arrangement or constitution, order, government" - and krateo - to hold fast in the hand (from www.blueletterbible.com). This reminds me of the word translated "outwit" in 2 Corinthians 2:11 - pleonekteo - to have more, or a greater part or share. It is comes from pleonektes, comprised of pleion (greater in quantity/quality, exceeding) and echo (to have or hold, used of those joined to any one by the bonds of natural blood or marriage or friendship or duty or law etc, of attendance or companionship).

My argument is that evolution is social engineering. At least some members of any criminal gang don't know who's at the top. Satan means resister. Turning light into heat, he takes the families of the earth in his hand and redistributes "science" to each according to his overall design - creating and then "harnessing" anger. This philosophies affect how genders perceive their relationship, how family members relate. No wonder there's so much buying and selling going on! (Revelation 13:17)

Darwinian fitness is defined as contributing at least your fair share to the gene pool. The opposing argument is that the life prospects of mankind are more dependent on the growth of God's Kingdom, which fosters peaceful relationships between men and women based on an accurate understanding of our relationship with the earth. Animals also benefit from being treated well. In zoos, they don't necessarily want to breed. They can get into tendencies of bobbing their heads up and down and sucking on cage bars. The argument is - were those particular animals just defective examples of their species to begin with, or has human involvement, specifically pathologising everyday behaviour, turned them into blithering fools? The argument against evolution is that a failure to recognise the way that it has been utilised to effect hierarchy has meant that the requirement to obtain permission to treat animals well slows down their recovery from abuse. It is evolution which has caused the problems with slow growth on the planet, because of the way it portrays the relationship between humanity and the earth.

Christianity has joined in by mistranslating the Bible from the original languages and/or failing to read it. Deuteronomy 5:29 says: "Oh, that their hearts would be inclined to fear me and keep all my commands always, so that it might go well with them and their children forever!"

Genesis 11:2 has the ancient Babylonians journeying by pulling out or pulling up (naca'). This attitude is one that evolutionists take for granted - it takes a reason to want to move and a vehicle (from Latin vehere, to carry) to do it with. When C. Westphal named agoraphobia ('die agoraphobie'), he noted that sufferers might still venture into the feared public place or market place, but they would take a vehicle of some description with them. Methinks these agoraphobia sufferers are scared because they're traversing rival territory. So the question is - are humans and animals and their various constituent parts inherently territorial, as evolution says? Do AIDS and cancer kill because our own cells are confused about what the connection is between territory, necessity and use when it comes to "foreign" bodies? If so, is it our own conscious attitudes that determine this, or societal factors (don't blame any race for our illnesses!), or our evolutionary past? Is evolution being promoted as a way to try to divert attention from any current superstition as to cause? I believe that evolution and AIDS research (see my article that says that AIDS doesn't exist) are just different branches of the same cladistic criminal tree.

The various theories about what prompts change in the evolutionary progression of life underpin attitudes towards "correct" public health. Public health is a mythological liturgy in operation to protect the interests of the guilty. Nietzsche said that philosophers tend to mummify their subjects. Philosophy is fine for dealing with questions of "being", but is inadequate for questions of "becoming" such as procreation and growth. The kind of health that impacts in the most beneficial way on procreation and growth is awe and wonder at the grandeur of the universe.
