Product of teaching on evolution: Godless society

Email

Even though there's no credible evidence for the theory of evolution, and lots of evidence against it, it is taught in our public schools as a fact. You may say, so what? The problem is that the natural conclusion of the evolution theory is that life is a product of chance, an accident, therefore there's no creator God, life is purposeless, meaningless, and therefore morality is manmade, changeable and relative. And since we're not held accountable to a creator God, eat, drink and be merry.

The product of evolutionary teaching is a godless society where narcissism (excessive self-love and self-interest) is the norm. Today, society, government and corporations are largely controlled by greed, dishonesty, arrogance, and self-interest. Could that explain the problems in our society today? Could that explain our current corporate corruption and bankruptcies? Could that explain our federal financial mess and national indebtedness?

If purpose establishes value, and evolution tells us that we're simply accidents, then life has no purpose, other than to reproduce and we already have plenty of people, and therefore life has no value. Having no purpose or meaning to life is the cause of low self-esteem. Remove the creator God, then suicide, murder, disobedience, drug use, promiscuity, and abortion aren't immoral. Could this explain why suicide is the No. 1 killer of our youth? Could this explain why shootings and murders are common? Could this explain why people persist in dangerous, harmful and reckless behaviors -- as though their life has no value?

Public schools avoid any references to God, so I don't expect they'll ever change. Ultimately it's the parents' responsibility to teach the Biblical account of Creation, and knowledge of God, to their children. Thus giving them the understanding that they're valuable in God's eyes, they were created with purpose and meaning.
