Spencer (27 April 1820 – 8 December 1903) was an English philosopher, biologist, sociologist, and prominent classical liberal political theorist of the Victorian era. He has been described as "almost certainly the most famous philosopher of the Victorian age. He was "an enthusiastic exponent of evolution" and even "wrote about evolution before Darwin did." (wikipedia)
Spencer was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature , which along with those awarded to President Obama
& Elite to establish a line of thinking that serves their needs rather than those of all people.
The reason someone like Darwin or Spencer or Friedman gain more recognition than they deserve is bcuz their ideas fit right in line with the ideas the racist & wealthy (Elite) have about themselves & provides an excuse for their hoarding of wealth & the ensuing destruction visited upon mankind as a result. These men weren't any smarter than anyone else. The Elite simply decided who received funding & therefore recognition & publication so of course the idea of Natural Selection & survival of the fittest was favored over say an idea that promoted wealth distribution as the means to avoid armed conflict.
Further proof of this is in how Socialism & Communism have been demonized in America despite the fact that every major society in the world is a combination of capitalism & socialism. And with Capitalism blowing up in our face as we speak notice how still no one has had the guts on mainstream media to even bring up the idea that Capitalism is a failure or the idea of the accumulation of individual wealth serving the needs of all people is also a massive failure. Look around. Can we at least begin to question the ideas we hold to be so sacred ??
Eugenics has long been an obsession of the Elite & continues til this day. All public policies bare the imprint of this horrid philosophy including the coming economic collapse which is a means of thinning the herd. The higher the death count the better as 7 billion people have become unmanageable for them.
Evolution as Darwin imagined it simply isn't true. I view what Darwin observed as God's Laws in action. But bcuz the scientific community assumes it already knows the idea of God is false (How scientific is that ??!!) that possibility never enters into the discussion. Scientists always assume the proof they are seeking can be found in the physical realm. But what realms are they unaware of ? And isn't any scientist only as good as the tools he uses to measure certain phenomenon ??
At one time the atom was thought to be the smallest particle of matter. But the atom is made up of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Until that discovery it was widely held that nothing was smaller but if scientists lack the tools to look into or to perceive matter or the universe from a different perspective .. can we really believe what they teach ??
Science frowns upon religion (often for good reason) but we should also hesitate to worship at the altar of science as those who have received the most support only tend to based on the usefulness of their ideas in furthering the goals of the Elite.
