The Reason Cho was forced to mass murder…

April 20, 2007

Was apparently from the teaching of evolution, according to Dr. Grady McMurtry:

The president of Creation Worldview Ministries says decades of teaching “evolution only” in public schools and universities is partly responsible for crimes such as the mass shooting earlier this week in Virginia.

Dr. Grady McMurtry is a full-time creation evangelist who travels the world teaching Christian and secular audiences about the scientific evidence supporting the biblical view of creationism. For years, he says, public schools and universities have taught the theory of evolution as fact, with no opposing viewpoints — and the result, he contends, is a lack of respect for human life.

Therefore, he asserts, people should not be surprised when mass shootings occur, such as the one on the Blacksburg university campus on Monday. “And at Virginia Tech, what do we have?” he asks rhetorically. “We have a person who, unfortunately, thought that humans had no more value than cats and dogs — and unfortunately, I think, probably felt the same way about themselves.”

The creationist continues explaining his premise. “And so what happens? If we are nothing but thinking animals, [and] if you have excess people, then you can just put them in a bag, throw them in the river the way you would too many kittens or too many puppies.”

McMurty explains that when the biblical account of creation is taken out of the public arena, human life has no meaning. In contrast, creation teaches that there is a purpose, he says.

“It is only in the teaching of creation that we are a creation of God,” says the creation teacher; “that we have infinite eternal value in worth; that God has a purpose for each and every one of us, no matter who and what we are.”

Dr. McMurtry taught evolution for 20 years in public schools before he became a creationist and eventually accepted Christ as his Savior and Lord.

Can we all say ASSHAT together? How about what we had at VTech was an obviously seriously disturbed young man – a BIOCHEMICALLY disturbed young man, for whom, religion, had it been in his paranoid schizophrenic mix, would likely not have been a blessing at all. Heck, a fundagelical leaning at all could have had this guy spouting off that he was killing them all for Jesus, just as the Lord his personal savior told him to!

OY!

    Pick me up off the floor, Eileen. We actually agree. Yeah!!! Just teasing. (LOL)

    But, it’s true I don’t think this sad young man’s convictions concerning evolution had a thing to do with this tragedy. I’m sure he was depressed, and seriously ill.

    Sadly, Dr McMurtry actually has very few (if any) qualifications in any relevant scientific discipline and he knows nothing about psychiatry.
