Morals Decline Linked to Belief in Evolution

I'm an evolutionist myself. Evolution seems more probable in my opinion, but this idea that belief in evolution leads to moral decline (that is, decline in Christian morals) doesn't surprise me. If you really did believe in evolution then you'd realize that the only purpose for your existence is to spread your genes to the next generation. Hence, grab as many females as possible and start having sex. Evolution not only lays the philosophical framework for sexually permissive behavior but it also suggests that rape is a natural reproductive strategy. Many evolutionists who hold Christian morals try to deny this.
Morals decline linked to belief in evolution

For years, many people have scoffed at any suggestion that the evils in society could be linked with the teaching of the theory of evolution. But new research has confirmed what Bible-believers have known all along—that the rising acceptance of Darwin’s theory is related to declining morality in the community.

The research survey of 1535 people, conducted by the Australian National University, revealed that belief in evolution is associated with moral permissiveness. Darwin himself apparently feared that belief in evolution by the common man would lead to social decay. The survey showed that people who believed in evolution were more likely to be in favour of premarital sex than those who rejected Darwin’s theory. Another issue which highlighted the contrast between the effect of evolutionary ideas and that of biblical principles was that Darwinians were reported to be ‘especially tolerant’ of abortion.

In identifying the primary factors determining these differences in community attitudes, the author of the research report, Dr Jonathan Kelley, said: ‘The single most important influence after church attendance is the theory of evolution.’
