Science vs. Religion Part II

Tuesday, September 18, 2007 2 comments

The scientists are at it again. Trying to undermine core principles of Christianity. I found an article in the New York Times that is claiming that morals evolved from our genes. Natural selection now permits morals.

Previously on another blog, the discussion was about separation of church and state. I was stressing the importance of recognizing America’s Judeo-Christian heritage and how it correlates to morals. This article tries to support its claim by comparing different cultures morals. My thought is further separation from God will create a more perverse version of morals. For instance, a passage from the article:

“Imagine visiting a town where people wear no clothes, never bathe, have sex ‘doggie style’ in public, and eat raw meat by biting off pieces from the carcass.”… “Educated liberals are the only group to say, ‘I find that disgusting but that doesn’t make it wrong’ Dr. Haidt said.”

This postmodernism view of no absolutes is corrupting our world in every aspect. It takes away the sovereignty of God. But wait, Haidt “believes that religion has played an important role in human evolution….”. Big deal, he believes in the behavior of religion and does not think twice about the truth that it holds.

This entire article was a response to Christians who say that without life after death, life is meaningless. There is no reason to have morals. There would be no judgment, no reward. It looks like they took a page out of the philosopher’s playbook and expanded on the notion that even in man’s state of nature they are naturally good and will work together for a virtuous society.

    While this isnt a subject I normally talk about (because I find it silly to argue with a scientist), I wanted to bring something up.

    No all runners will run a marathon for the prize. The prize to them is saying that they ran a marathon. Likewise, most people arent acting nice because they want treasures in heaven.

    We can be nice to each other, and have morals, without believing in a heaven and a hell. (those doing so would be ill advised, but still...)

    Furthermore any Christian who says "without life after death, life is meaningless." is surely in the wrong state of mind. Life on this earth is something to be treasured.
