In 1925, it became legal to teach evolution. According to certain scientist, it became official, man descended from apes. Darwin was right and God was wrong. Henceforth, the schools no longer taught that man was a distinct creation of God. It became laughable that man was created separate from the other animals. It was no longer believable that God formed him from the dirt and breathed into him life.
So now, after many decades, we have learned that we are simply animals, as with the other creations that were made on the fifth day. There is nothing that sets us apart, other than a few more brain cells and apposing thumbs. …and, oh yes. We have the ability to talk, write and, of course, read.
Why should we wonder why, when a high school student kills a bunch of students. After all, as he has been taught, they are just a bunch of descendants from monkeys. It is true that the young boys and girls had their lives cut short, but what harm has it done? They are simply a higher form of animal life. They have hardly any value.
Then too, why should anyone be expected to act morally, especially when there is no reward. Indeed, why should a person do good when he seems to be punished for it? If we are animals, why not act like animals?
I would suspect that a chimp would feel little remorse if he were to kill another animal, or even a human. What makes us any different?
Maybe the scientist can tell us. Then, of course there are those people that study the human mind and our emotions and behavior. Maybe they can tell us why we shouldn’t just up and kill someone for stepping on our toe. Such an act at least deserves a good punch or two, right in the nose.
Humans are said to be civilized and we don’t do that sort of thing. Yet, in a way, even ants are civilized. Moreover, they get along much better than we do. I guess they aren’t smart enough to realize when they have been wronged.
Well, now the scientists have their way. I have but two questions. Is Darwinism better than Christianity? Is the belief in evolution better than what Jesus taught us: to love God and to love each other? If the scientist ideas are so much better, than I guess we have taken some big leaps forward in our civilization.
So now we have humans acting like animals killing humans as if they are animals.
