By signing the letter, all these “Christians” have made themselves ambassadors for Darwin, Zimmerman, and atheist evolutionist pseudo-science.

One of the many ironies in Zimmerman’s letter is that atheist reptile descent religion actually does “transform hearts”by darkening them.

Platonic philosophy is not an objective search for truth: It involves presenting one’s soul to be charmed by the reigning philosophical authority.

Excerpts from



The Adversary of God and Christ has set a trap for you. You’ve been busy. You’ve been working hard for your family. God has not had much of a place in your life, and you know that is not good. You worry about the decline of faith and morality in our country, and wonder what kind of world your children are going to grow up in. You do believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, but you feel out of touch with things spiritual. You decide to take your family to the church in your community. The sign says “United Church of Christ.” That has to be a place where Christ and His truth are proclaimed, doesn’t it? Surprise! The United Church of Christ is no longer “of Christ,” but “of Darwin.” The pastor there will try to teach you that Jesus was wrong when He said that “Yet from the beginning of creation, God makes them male and female” (Mark 10:6), and insist instead that you and your family evolved from reptiles by chance. That’s just too far-fetched to believe isn’t it? A church “of Christ” foregoing the Word of God in favor of human reptile-descent? It is not too contradictory and too depraved to believe: it is true.

    The entire hierarchy of the United Church “of Christ” has signed onto the unscriptural epistle that is the centerpiece of the Clergy Letter Project, the brainchild of atheist academic, Michael Zimmerman, former Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Butler University, and the organizer of the annual Darwin Day festivities. This letter has been signed, not by 120 “Christian” ministers, not by 1200 “Christian” ministers, but by more than 12,000 “Christian” ministers of many different denominations, all members in good standing of the Moronocracy . . .

Atheist Zimmerman’s Clergy Letter is worth careful study because it clearly expresses the mindset of the Cainite Moronocracy: Man is not subject to God and His Word; God is subject to man and his reasonings—if God is given permission to exist at all. The content and structure of the Clergy Letter reveals that this mindset is characterized by ploys, carelessness, blatant contradictions, ignorance, shallowness, illogic, lies, ridicule, and outright stupidity. These descriptions are characteristic of the entire Moronocracy.

Where did this unfruitful and idolatrous magnification of reasoning as the ultimate arbiter of truth originate? The fact that Zimmerman and almost all of the signatories of the Clergy Letter are credentialed academics demands that we take a quick look now at the origins of Academia, prior to our more detailed look at its role in the Moronocracy in Chapter Seven.

Socrates, the Serpent, and Plato’s Academy

Academia originated in ancient Athens, in about 387 BC, with the Academy of Plato. All of Plato’s Dialogues survive, and are taught throughout our colleges and universities. Plato’s mouthpiece was Socrates. Plato’s Academy, and of course Socrates himself, excluded the idea of a Creator, as do their “intellectual” spawn, modern Academia. For Plato and Socrates, it is all about the exaltation of the human mind above all. In Plato’s Dialogue, Crito, Socrates affirms that he must be guided by reason only (46b). In Plato’s Dialogue, Philebus, Socrates says that “since all philosophers assert with one voice that mind is the king of heaven and earth—in reality they are magnifying themselves. And perhaps they are right” (28c). When Zimmerman and his apostates sing the praises of human reasoning as the ultimate arbiter of all, even above the pronouncements of God in the Scriptures, they are simply harmonizing their own man-centered philosophies with the ancient Socratic chorus.

Many people think of Platonic philosophy as an objective search for truth, or a way of developing understanding. It is no such thing. It involves presenting one’s soul to be charmed by the reigning philosophical authority. Socrates’ adoring student, Charmides, says to his master, “I am certain that I greatly need the charm [Greek = epode] and nothing on my part will stand in the way of my being charmed by you every day until you say that it is enough” (Charmides, 176b). In order to become part of the great intellectual elite, Charmides offers himself to be enchanted by the words and authority of Socrates. The man who places human reason above all becomes the savior of Charmides. The name, Socrates, is a contraction of Soter, meaning “Savior,” and Krates, meaning “Mighty.” Socrates is the mighty savior of all who submit to him and the primacy of autonomous human reason. The word “autonomous” has an interesting derivation. It comes from two Greek words meaning “self” and “law.” Socrates, and all who follow his way, become laws unto themselves. By magnifying their own reason above all, Zimmerman and his apostates become answerable to no one but themselves. All “truth” becomes subjective, and ultimately nothing more than the elite’s rationalization for the seduction of others.
