Does this look like a happy man? Obviously not. It’s Charles Darwin, whose theory of evolution in The Origin of Species established the idea that all species came from common ancestors, and that humans were not a unique and differentiated creation of God. Though baptized Anglican, he was essentially raised a godless Unitarian and eventually married his own cousin. It has been known that he suffered miserably while writing Origin but a new book My Age of Anxiety, by Scott Stossel. (The strange, off-balance cover of the book is above.) Stossel, the editor of “Atlantic” magazine, tells us just how bad Darwin suffered, described in his own words: *
*NOTE: Be advised the following is unpleasant reading.
For 25 years extreme spasmodic daily & nightly flatulence: occasional vomiting, on two occasions prolonged during months. Vomiting preceded by shivering, hysterical crying[,] dying sensations or half-faint. & copious very palid urine. Now vomiting & every passage of flatulence preceded by ringing of ears, treading on air & vision …. Nervousness when E[mma Darwin, his wife] leaves me.
What a miserable man. It would be easy to dismiss his suffering as due to a lack of proper medical attention in the 19th Century. The author of Anxiety suggests that Darwin suffered from emotional illnesses and phobias, a kind of angst-ridden 1800s PTSD. Maybe. But perhaps it was more than that. Demons? (You knew that conclusion was coming!) Quite possibly. However great he was at geology and biology, and to whatever extent some of what he wrote is true, the ultimate conclusion of his theses was, and is, empirically unproven, anti-God, and destructive of faith in Scripture. It may be that the demons who demented his obviously brilliant mind took a physical toll as torment for his blasphemously subversive ideas. It’s true that sometimes “the devil takes care of his own.” I’ve learned in deliverance that it’s also true that once the demons have gotten what they want from an individual they turn the purported benefits of their partnership into a hellish toll on the one who cooperated with them. In the quote above, is Darwin describing a demonic attack? Hmmm.
An encouraging word: LET GOD JUDGE YOU
“Let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end,” the NKJV renders Psalm 7:9. What a day that will be. Certainly that will happen at the end of time when Satan is cast into the Abyss. But even now, wickedness has a life span. Growing older one realizes that no misery lasts forever. Trials and tribulations do have an expiration date. God puts boundaries on even the most severe oppression of the Enemy. We wish it would come sooner; but be confident that whatever attacks of Satan you are suffering now, they will run out in due time. God is faithful. And if you are faithful, wickedness WILL come to an end.
