After discussing several varying theories of the universe and its phenomena, Charles Hodge delves deep into Darwinism. Explaining the principles behind Darwinism and natural selection, Hodge gives a clear and thorough rebuttal to the theory and points out its faults and flaws.
“We have thus arrived at the answer to our question, What is Darwinism? It is Atheism. This does not mean, as before said, that Mr. Darwin himself and all who adopt his views are atheists; but it means that his theory is atheistic; that the exclusion of design from nature is, as Dr. Gray says, tantamount to atheism” (p. 177).
