That Silly Belief That Life is Sacred and Inviolable

The twentieth century’s eugenics movement was eventually discarded, but eugenics did not go away entirely. Today eugenics continues, but it is a much more diverse and technologically sophisticated. There are the so-called eugenic abortions where the unborn with higher disease risks are “terminated.” And today’s technology allows for specific embryos, and even genes, to be selected. There seems to be, as Nathaniel Comfort observed this month, a eugenic impulse that drives us to seek a better human race. Underlying such health concerns, however, are the usual less benevolent motivations. In addition to the promised health benefits, Comfort explains that eugenics offers an intellectual thrill, and the profits of genetic biomedicine. Such lures are, explains Comfort, “too great for us to do otherwise. Resistance would be ill-advised and futile.”  Read more

  1. As to man falling under the delusional hubris that he is God, and can thus engineer a perfect society, this following comment is interesting for pointing out that such delusional hubris does not stop with man designing ‘perfect societies’ but even extends to man designing the entire universe:

    “So what are the theological implications of all this? Well Barrow and Tipler wrote this book, The Anthropic Cosmological Principle, and they saw the design of the universe. But they’re atheists basically, there’s no God. And they go through some long arguments to describe why humans are the only intelligent life in the universe. That’s what they believe. So they got a problem. If the universe is clearly the product of design, but humans are the only intelligent life in the universe, who creates the universe? So you know what Barrow and Tipler’s solution is? It makes perfect sense. Humans evolve to a point some day where they reach back in time and create the universe for themselves. (Audience laughs) Hey these guys are respected scientists. So what brings them to that conclusion? It is because the evidence for design is so overwhelming that if you don’t have God you have humans creating the universe back in time for themselves.” –

  2. Semi OT: Atheists are under the delusion that Godless societies would be far better, utopian, than ‘religious’ societies, such as America, who by and large fear God. History itself tells us that atheists are severely misguided in this utopian belief of theirs:

    Atheists like to point to the Spanish inquisition and witch hunts, etc.. etc.. to try to say that atheism is better than Christianity. Yet atheists forget to ‘look in the mirror’ at the exponentially worse horror that was visited upon mankind in atheistic regimes: This following video is very clear as to pointing the extremely different ‘degrees of evil’ we are dealing with in atheistic and Christian cultures:

    The unmitigated horror visited upon man, by state sponsored atheism, would be hard to exaggerate,,, Here’s what happens when Atheists/evolutionists/non-Christians take control of Government:

    This is, in reality, probably just a drop in the bucket. Who knows how many undocumented murders there were. It also doesn’t count all the millions of abortions from around the world.

  5. This is from a column that Ken Ham wrote on his Answers in Genesis blog.

    He wrote about Bill Maher and quoted this comment he made during an interview on a radio show this year, calling it a controversial but telling statement:

    I’m pro-choice, I’m for assisted suicide, I’m for regular suicide, I’m for whatever gets the freeway moving—that’s what I’m for. . . . It’s too crowded, the planet is too crowded and we need to promote death.

    He continues:

    “You see, the way Maher is “promoting” death is not too different than the way many evolutionists promote death. The foundation for evolutionary ideas is millions of years. And evolution and millions of years assume that there has been death and suffering from the very beginning. What Maher is saying is absolutely consistent with an evolutionary worldview—humans came about by random processes and have no purpose but to live and die. So death is a natural part of the world, not an enemy.

    In another quote, Maher showed his support for abortion, saying, “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. . . .It’s not that hard to create life, it’s teeming everywhere, it’s something a dog can do.”

    You know, not only is Maher’s statement about life highly offensive and demeaning, but it also directly mocks God, who values and promotes life. In Psalm 139:13–14, the psalmist praises God:

    For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.

    Maher is a great example of a man, though an atheist, shaking his fist at God. And once again, this is the logical conclusion of an evolutionary, atheistic worldview. You see, in an evolutionary mindset, man is not uniquely created in the image of God. Rather, he is just another animal, no better than a dog. So why should an evolutionist value the life of an unborn baby? The protection of an unborn baby’s life comes from Scripture. Without the Bible as a foundation, biblical morality will be eroded more and more in the culture.

    ….

    Ironically, Maher praises death. This is the opposite of Christianity. We serve Jesus Christ, the Death Conqueror, who stated, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die” (John 11:25–26).”

    More good reasons to reject evolution! Evolution truly is a dangerous idea!
