“Darwin made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist." (Richard Dawkins)
Darwin’s theory is a friend to atheism. Instead of a purposeful Creator as the explanation of life on earth, atheists argue we are the product of blind, physical, evolutionary processes. There are two choices. We are here on purpose or on accident. But isn’t one of these beliefs going to lead to entirely different actions than the other? Absolutely. Make no mistake, ideas have consequences.
Have you heard of Jeffrey Dahmer? He was a brutal serial killer who murdered 17 men and boys from 1978 to 1991, sometimes cannibalizing his victims. In a prison interview with Stone Phillips of Dateline NBC, Dahmer was asked why he did what he did:
“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 behavior 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…”
After hearing Dahmer’s words, no one can claim evolution doesn’t matter.
