Belief in evolution is not a harmless enterprise. There are specific ethical implications that follow believing and applying the major tenets of the evolutionary religion even though prominent evolutionists go out of their way to deny it. The late Stephen Jay Gould, who served as professor of geology at Harvard and New York University, stated that “no factual discovery of science (statements about how nature ‘is’) can, in principle, lead us to ethical conclusions (how we ‘ought’ to behave) or to convictions about intrinsic meaning (the ‘purpose’ of our lives). These last two questions — and what more important inquiries could we make? — lie firmly in the domains of religion, philosophy and humanistic study.”
Isn’t this just typical? Science cannot teach us how to live, but religion can. How can this be when the majority of evolutionists are atheists who contend that the tenets of religion are mythological?
