Quote: "The battle being fought is a battle of worldviews, a war, between two religions, that will cost us our souls and our children."

In "Creation, Evolution, and the Handicapped: Crushing the Death Image" (published by WestBow Press), Pastor Richard Luther Corwin defends the proposition that evolution is unproven conjecture and is an illogical, self-contradictory theory. He advocates that only a biblical worldview "sustains the preconditions of intelligibility sufficient to sustain empirical science."

Witnessing the dismissal of an associate pastor from a church due to his multiple sclerosis and suffering the effects being diagnosed with focal epilepsy had on his own pastoral prospects, Corwin was inspired to write. "I discovered that the evolutionary prejudice assigned to ‘Darwin's defectives' had infiltrated the body of Christ," he says.

By following evolutionary dogma to its logical conclusion, Corwin suggests that it promotes a climate of death, a devaluation of life, and is detrimental to the disabled and handicapped. He presents evidence to try and show that only the biblical worldview can account for the uniformity in nature, laws of logic, morality and intelligence.

An excerpt from "Creation, Evolution, and the Handicapped":

The battle being fought is a battle of worldviews, a war, between two religions, that will cost us our souls and our children. Are we lost in a random chance universe or are we designed in the image of God? How we answer that question will not only determine our place in a secular world, but it will determine our spiritual destiny!

Pastor Richard Luther Corwin graduated from Western Illinois University with a bachelor's degree in philosophy. He has a master's in theology from Harding Graduate School of Religion in Memphis and recently graduated from the Institute for Creation Research in Dallas with a master's of Christian education in apologetics.
