Evolution Belief Can Lead To Murder

22 January 2015 - 10:10 AM

I found this article very interesting. Since I help with Creation Club here, I receive emails from various creation groups. This one is headquartered in England. CMI - Creation Ministries International - has some interesting articles on creation, but this one kind of veers from that.  It is a sad read, chilling, really. But it is interesting...evolution causes folk to believe they are nothing special. And so why not kill or commit suicide or do drugs or on and on...This young man was such a one as to buy into that thought.  I'm quoting the whole article so that if someone can't open the link they can still read it.  (Credit goes to CMI)

The Boy Who's Proud to be a Killer 

Will Cornick murders teacher in front of classmates in Leeds, England

by Warren Nunn

 

 

The horrendous stabbing murder1 of an English high school teacher and the comments the perpetrator made afterwards are a potent reminder of the possible effects of evolutionary thinking on impressionable minds.

Some of the sickening comments the teenage student made after the killing included:

“I wasn’t in shock, I was happy. I had a sense of pride. I still do.
“I know it’s uncivilised but I know it’s incredibly instinctual and human. Past generations of life, killing is a route of survival.
“It’s kill or be killed. I did not have a choice. It was kill her or suicide.
“I know the victim’s family will be upset but I don’t care. In my eyes, everything I’ve done is fine and dandy.”1

He had previously said of the teacher on Facebook that “she deserves more than death, more than pain and more than anything that we can understand”.1

The details of the killing make disturbing reading. It happened at Corpus Christi Catholic College in Leeds, England, when the teenager walked up behind a 61-year-old female teacher, winked at fellow students and then fatally stabbed her.

The boy, Will Cornick, has since been jailed, and details of his planned attack and callous attitude were revealed in court. While it’s impossible to know what influences impacted the killer and resulted in such psychopathic tendencies, his statements that “it’s incredibly instinctual and human” and “killing is a route of survival”, have inescapable evolutionary overtones.

After all, at the heart of Darwin’s philosophy that overwhelms the education system and the wider community is the belief that we are nothing more than biochemistry—that all our thoughts, feelings and actions are simply the result of our genes and the environment.2

As well, Cornick’s statements are somewhat similar to those of the notorious American serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer who once said: “After all, if a person doesn’t think there is a God to be accountable to, then—then what’s the point of trying to modify your behaviour to keep it within acceptable ranges? That’s how I thought anyway. I always believed the theory of evolution as truth, that we all just came from the slime. When we, when we died, you know, that was it, there is nothing…”3

After the shooting massacre in 1999 in America in which teenagers Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 12 students and a teacher before turning their guns on themselves, people were asking, ‘How could they do such a thing?’4 The killers were obsessed with blood-drenched video games and violent death. They were also fascinated by the German Nazi belief, fueled by ideas of Darwinian struggle, in a ‘master race’.5

Only a moral and legal code based on Christian morality will act as some sort of restraint to such tendencies. But once there is the justification that it’s ‘natural’ to kill, this will happen more. The analogy can be made with depression/suicide; even if depression in a culture remains at a constant level, the percentage of those who then give in to their impulse to self-destruct will be higher when people think life has no meaning and there is no afterlife.

The fact that Cornick’s attack happened at a Catholic college also speaks of the way in which much of the church has embraced evolution over the creation account in Genesis. Science, some churches say, has shown the Genesis account of creation to be wrong, so it is appropriate to take a different view.2

So, even in church-run schools children are told that man is just an animal, that death and violence are a natural part of evolution, and that ‘only the fittest survive’, so it is no wonder that young people are wallowing in utter hopelessness.5

At CMI, we argue that science and Scripture do not collide, and that there is no need to compromise either—a view which numerous articles on this website show to be entirely reasonable.2 The Bible can be trusted absolutely in what it says about earth history. And it can be trusted in what it says about everything else too, particularly that it is wrong to kill another human despite a mindset like that of this troubled individual who subscribes to the notion that ‘it’s incredibly instinctual and human’ to carry out such an act.

 
 

Incredibly instinctual and human....

My Son....

Well, it appears that the Army is calling our son back up. It's only supposed to be until next August and in the Reserves - unless there's an emergency...

 

Would appreciate prayer for him and his wife as they will need to be adjusting to a new way of life now.  He was single when he was in before and now with a wife, if he's deployed overseas....

 

Thanks!

Marietta Bible College

I attended MBC for a year (well, I started a second year, but left early for reasons I won't go into) back in the day. When I was there, there weren't international students, but it has become a college that particularly trains international students. But now...

The Obama Administration is about to grant amnesty to some five million illegal aliens. You would think they could find room to accommodate 120 Christian college students.

 

And for what it’s worth – the Christian college kids came here legally.

This situation will only escalate, and it won't be long til it affects colleges like ours.  We haven foreign students - not as many, but some.  But one day it'll reach us.  And probably not too long in the future...

Thanksgiving Game

07 November 2014 - 12:23 PM

It's that time of year again.  Thanksgiving. My favorite time of year.  Let's have some fun at the same time we are giving thanks. The object of this game is to spell out the word Thanksgiving while using the subsequent letter of the word thanksgiving.  I'll start with T.  Next person uses H, etc.

 

T:  Trees. I'm thankful God gave us trees.  The leaves they shed in fall give gorgeous colors. The bare bones they show in winter are beautiful. The green they bring in spring is just breathtaking. The fruit they bear in summer is life sustaining for humans as well as animals.  They give us oxygen. God is good.

File Under Believe It Or Not: Satanic Children's Big Book Of Activities

Coming to a school near you (currently if you live in FL)...

On the heels of a lawsuit over the distribution of Bibles and other religious literature in an Orange County, Florida, school district, the Satanic Temple has submitted some materials of their own: a coloring book.

Just last week, an atheist group proposed a controversial pamphlet that they were going to hand out, highlighting what they feel are examples of inappropriate content in the Bible, but this coloring book goes a step further.  [see the link for page examples]...

According to Fox News, at this point the district has not announced a decision on the material. A spokesman for the group, which has joined forces with atheist groups to push back against the court ruling that allows the distribution of Bibles in schools,said:

To be sure, if our materials are consistent with their standards, they can’t simply deny our literature because of its religious viewpoint.  If the open forum for distribution goes forward, The Satanic Temple will be there.

This conflict is similar to one that happened earlier this year, when a lawsuit was filed after a Michigan mayor refused to allow atheist groups the same access a Christian group was given in its city hall.

If religious literature is allowed in schools, this would seemingly have to include religions of all kinds — which would join Christians and Satanists as the strangest of bedfellows.

That’s hard to imagine, of course. What’s more likely is that someone seeks to reverse the judge’s decision and the barring of all religious materials from schools. Either way, this is certainly a civics and religious freedom lesson for all of us.
