Darwinism ideology and its consequences

Some philosophers still consider evolution a scientific theory. There even are some attempts to accommodate Bible notions and some hypothesis of modern natural science, recognizing a priory evolutionary theory as science.

The question “Did God create through evolution?” is still burning.

Morality and ethics of modern society are determined by two polar principles. On one hand, it is secular point of view, based on evolutionary theory in its different instants, on the other hand, it is admitting the first role of the Creator as the Source of moral laws and human conscience.

Brochure “Darwinism Ideology and Its Consequences” shows negative influence of evolutionary ideas upon ethics and morality of modern society. And opposed to that is spreading ideas of creation, mainstream fiction of Creation paradigm, which tells that the main role in the world belongs to the Creator.

Presentation of a new edition

Presentation of a new book “Conversations about Apostle Paul’s Book of Philippians” took place in St. Mary’s Church in St. Petersburg. The book contains real sermons based on text of that Book which were given by prior of ST. Mary’s Church Michail Ivanov in the Evangelical-Lutheran cathedral of St. Mary.

In his short speech Michail Ivanov shared that the Book of Philippians is a short book, which has only four chapters. But the number of topics Paul discusses in it is astonishing. Michail is sure that Paul’s words written to Macedonian city Philippi will allow everyone to realize that Bible is still essential in lives of modern Christians.

In the final part of his speech, Michail Ivanov expessed his gratitude to “Concordia” Foundation for supporting the publication financially.

Igor Savich, the head of “Concordia” Foundation said that the Church of Ingria has always been the main partner of the

Dear friend,

We are happy to introduce that album with the author’s compositions revealing the secret of family happiness to you. You might find something new for your soul on that CD as well. Nowadays when people pursue money, pleasure, we can easily forget something really important in all the hassle.

 Each person looks for peace for their souls and for love. But sometimes they cannot get it. In that case we need help of the One who is Love Himself. We need faith and hope.

The CD contains songs not about love as attraction between people of different genders, but about mother’s love, spouses’ love, about Love which doesn’t seek her own and is ready to give life for you because she really loves…

Brochure “Distorting mirror’s shards”

After several publications in Russian this brochure, written by Dr. Igor Savich, have been translated in English.  The brochure shows the invalidity of the Evolution Theory.

“After the publication of Charles Darwin’s book ‘On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection.’ The ideas of evolution as ‘Distorting mirror’s shards’ little by little were spread all over the world, distorting social beliefs on the natural environment. It was made it look like that the interpretation of world order has been found by manipulating the natural sciences achievements and using numerous assumptions.

Enthusiast-evolutionist: This is a real evolution of the chairs!

Enthusiast-evolutionist: This is a real evolution of the chairs!

In spite of the apparent contradictions to physical laws and laws of logic, evolutionary thought continues to dominate in school and university programs.

The aim of this brochure is to give a brief analysis of some of the key provisions of the evolutionary hypothesis that are set out practically in all textbooks for biology.

As an example there was used one of the recent academic school biology textbooks for 10-11 grades that was analyzed in terms of informatics and information theory. Information (Latin: informatio – explanation, statement, knowledge) is one of the most common concepts of science denoting knowledge and any collection of data, knowledge etc.

As reader of this brochure can see that these twenty-five theses of evolutionary theory literally or figuratively are inconsistent if we analyze them in terms of informatics. Information is an intangible category; however it is encoded in one way or other in living organisms, on material carriers.

Using the terminology of informatics, the theory of evolution can be labeled as infoglut that reduces the reliability of our ideas about the creation. This infoglut caused by both accidental and intentional distortion of data and its incorrect interpretation.

Thus, the extreme complexity and at the same time coordination of all information processes and systems in living cell suggest to many researchers that the origin of life based on the chaotic and spontaneous molecular transformations is completely impossible. It is unthinkable to admit the existence of ‘evolution’ that requires purposeful ‘introduction’ of the necessary information inside living organisms.

Life exists only because of the presence of relevant information inside living organisms that works with the help of well-defined programs. Every living being carries a tremendous amount of very diverse information. Information determines its structure, a method of obtaining food, behavior, method of reproduction, protection etc. Every living cell carries specific, unique information. Moreover, the certain components of the cell are also carriers of information, without which the cell could not exist.

You cannot even imagine that this huge number of incredibly diverse management information emerged by itself. Everything gives evidence of God’s creation of the universe.”

New calendar

KAlend_3“Concordia” Foundation and etnocultural crenter “Kitezhgrad” have been friends for a long time.

5 years ago drawings by educatees of the center were used in a book “Christmas” published with support of “Concordia”.

Educatees of “Kithezhgrad under the guidance of their teacher Marianna Nikolskaya illustrated “Bible Stories for Children” recently.

The last release by “Concordia” Fundation is a table calendar, its release is coincided with 25th Anniversary of “Kitezhgrad” which will be in September 2015. The calendar starts with September 2015 and finishes with December 2016. The best works of educatees of “Kitezhgrad” were used in the calendar production. Matching Bible verses were picked up for each drawing or picture.

We hope that this calendar will not only be a good present for “Kithezhgrad” Anniversary, but will also give new motivation to learn wisdom of Holy Scripture.
