If You're Violent, Blame Evolution

Although everything was created "very good" (Gen. 1:31), there has been much violence in the world after the fall of man (Rom. 5:12, Gen. 4:8 and 6:11). It has even been a spectator sport, such as in the Roman Coliseum and its modern offshoots in several competitive sports. This is a product of our sin nature (Gal. 5:17-22, Eph. 2:1, Col. 3:5), but naturalistic thinking is attributing it to common-ancestor evolution.


Darwinists are giving people excuses for violent behavior (without evidence, of course) and ignoring the real cause.

There's a passel of evils that can be traced to evolution, such as "Social Darwinism", the Nazi legal system, "scientific" racism, eugenics, abortion, and other horrors. Now we can blame evolution for the violence inherent in our systems based on more evolutionary speculations? Not hardly! Last I knew, people are supposed to be responsible for their own choices.
The implications of saying violence is a product of natural selection are disturbing.

Lethal violence is rooted deep in our animal ancestry, says Mark Pagel in Nature. “Researchers estimate that the incidence of human lethal violence at the time of the origin of our species was about six times higher than for the average mammal, but about as violent as expected, given our great-ape ancestry.” Well if researchers say it, it must be true, right? The researchers are from Spain, with their Nature paper titled, “The phylogenetic roots of human lethal violence.” Phylogeny is code for universal common ancestry by natural selection, i.e., neo-Darwinism. Pagel makes that clear:
