Itís Not Fair !
How many times have you said, heard or thought that? All of our life
we hope for life to be fair, but why should we? When you understand
what God is telling us in the Bible, it is obvious why within the human
race there is a persistent desire for fairness. We are made in the
image of God; we have an inherent desire for fairness. God is not only
a God of love, He is also a God of justice. All societies have some
standard of justice that they strive for and those standards are
One of the great ironies in the Creation/evolution controversy is that most people who proclaim that evolutionism is a scientific fact also seek a world of fairness, without realizing how inconsistent and illogical they are being. Evolutionists may be quite moral in their conduct, but they have no logical basis for being so. Because if evolutionism is true, than how does the concept of fairness even exist? Animals donít act with any semblance of fairness, the strong take advantage of the weak and by evolutionistsí standards, that is good thing. Survival of the fittest is a central belief of evolutionism, but how many evolutionists would truly be in favor of murdering anyone who has a significant defect? One country that actually put into practice the logical outcome evolutionism was Nazi Germany. What most people donít know about the Nazis is that the first group of people they murdered were not Jews, but Germans with physical or mental defects. By evolutionist standards what the Nazis did was a positive thing for the human race and yet how many people would embrace their actions?
One of the few evolutionists who understand what evolutionism truly teaches is Daniel C. Dennett who wrote the book Darwinís Dangerous Idea in which he presents the logical outcome of evolutionist philosophy. He makes the completely logical argument that if evolutionism is true, than there are no true moral or ethical standards. In his words Darwinism is a ďuniversal acidĒ eating away at all morals and standards. All standards under an evolutionist system are whatever those in power decide is ďrightĒ at that moment. In the twentieth century the Communists and the Nazis both adopted this philosophy and ended up killing tens of millions of people. An immediate objection here is, havenít people claiming to be Christian killed lots of people? The answer is yes, but when they did it they were violating Christian standards. When the Communists and Nazis committed their atrocities they were acting in full accord with the evolutionist standard of survival of the fittest.
One person who is consistent in his evolutionist beliefs and therefor promotes the slaughter of those with defects is evolutionist Peter Singer, professor of bioethics at Princeton University. Singer advocates allowing parents of newborn children to murder them if the child does not measure up to whatever the parents think is acceptable. What he advocates is actually nothing more than abortion after the fact. If humans are nothing more than an accident of mindless nature, then killing the defective makes perfect sense. Thou shalt not murder, does not exist as a human invention, but as one of Godís commandments. It is only when we use Godís standard that we can have a real standard of morality. The moral decay that we see in the world today is not an accident; it is the logical outcome of a system of thought that rejects Godís standard of right and wrong.
One of the absurdities of the Creation/evolution controversy is how are those within the Church who seek to compromise with evolutionism going to fit Godís moral standards into a system that fundamentally rejects the concept of morality? That we as humans seek to find fairness in life is one of the many examples of how we are not just hairless apes, but creations designed by God in His image.
