No Sense of Decency

Red State Rabble has been following the horrific events at Virginia Tech, but hasn't commented on them until now in the belief that making sense of events should precede comment on them.

Not so for Answers in Genesis' Ken Ham. Less than 24 hours after the killings he said:
“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.’

Students of history will recall that there never was a murder, torture, or war in the world until 1859 when Darwin published The Origin of Species. That's when all the violence started. Until then, the world was just brimming with purpose. Filled with hope.
