As always happens after mass shooting incidents, lots of people immediately conclude that it was caused by whatever they were already against and could have been prevented by whatever they were already in favor of. And what caused it? Teaching evolution in schools, of course.
After World Wars I and II, returning soldiers had similar problems manifested in suicides, alcohol and drug abuse, and depression – but no mass shootings. Dr. Alex McFarland with the Center for Christian Worldview and Apologetics at North Greenville University points out that back then Christianity was the core of the community.
McFarland, Alex”I think what’s different in the 21st century versus the post-World War II generation is that there was a Christian mental view,” he shares. “More people went to church, there was a spiritual foundation – and when they were at the very end of their tether, previous generations would turn to God.”
In addition, McFarland says America is now about four decades into a culture of death.
“Veterans had grown up in an America that saw life as being a gift from God,” he says. “Now we’ve cheapened life and we’ve told generations of public school students that there is no creator God, there’s purposeless evolution – and now since 1973, we’ve murdered ten times more human beings than Adolph Hitler through abortion.”
Obviously. How could it possibly be otherwise? Checkmate, atheists.
