My first thought on hearing about the shootings at Virginia Tech yesterday was, “I wonder who long it will be before a creationist blames this on ‘Darwinism.'” Answer: less than 24 hours. And to no one’s surprise, it’s Ken Ham, an uber-fraud if ever there was one.
We live in an era when public high schools and colleges have all but banned God from science classes. In these classrooms, students are taught that the whole universe, including plants and animals–and humans–arose by natural processes. Naturalism (in essence, atheism) has become the religion of the day and has become the foundation of the education system (and Western culture as a whole). The more such a philosophy permeates the culture, the more we would expect to see a sense of purposelessness and hopelessness that pervades people’s thinking. In fact, the more a culture allows the killing of the unborn, the more we will see people treating life in general as “cheap.”
How predictable. And stupid. This is as dumb as someone claiming that Dick Cheney shot the students after warming up on his buddy in Texas.
