Bad Behavior and Evolutionary Thinking

Darwin devotees assume that we evolved from savage brutes and did almost nothing for most of our alleged history. This defies human nature. Evolutionists contradict themselves on the definition of human nature, and especially where it came from.

When challenged to give a source for morality, some atheists say that they obtain it from evolution. Such a concept is difficult to reconcile with people who say that evolution is just a biological theory and is not a part of daily life. In reality, evolution is not confined to academic and scientific discussions, as it permeates multiple facets of society itself.

One way to tell if a philosophy is permeated with problems is that is inconsistent. Atheism is both arbitrary and inconsistent, and appealing to evolution is ridiculous. Our chimpanzee "cousins" engage in cannibalism, torture, rape, and more. We can't say that it's wrong, because they are animals doing animal stuff, but when we engage in such activities, those are immoral. To be consistent, why are they wrong? According to evolutionism, we are the strong ones at the top of the food chain. Whatever an individual or a group thinks is the best way to survive should be acceptable. In reality, the final source of morality and ethics is God's Word, and we are created in his image.
If you subscribe to news feeds, read the newspaper, or watch TV, you could be forgiven for thinking that we modern humans have been behaving very badly. In recent years, we have variously been blamed for causing: global cooling, global warming, famines, floods, mass extinctions, plagues, deforestation, landslides, earthquakes, and much, much more. All the problems on planet Earth are apparently our fault, and it’s only supposed to get worse. Naturalist and evolutionist Sir David Attenborough summed up this thinking well: “Humans are a plague on earth.” But this raises an interesting question: if naturalistic evolution is true, why does it matter that we’re a “plague on earth”?

When evolutionists complain that humans are immoral, they are being inconsistent. According to their worldview, it's survival of the fittest, and we're going whatever it takes, singly or in groups, to improve our survival. The biblical worldview has very different reasons for morality.
