Slouching towards stupidity
John West over at the DI moans:
David Klinghoffer has a provocative essay commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre in Colorado. Klinghoffer notes that Columbine killer Eric Harris was inspired in part by his fanatical devotion to Darwinian natural selection, a trait Harris unfortunately shared with many opponents of human dignity during the past century. Given the pervasive influence of Social Darwinism in our culture, Klinghoffer suggests that Darwin’s Tree of Life might be more appropriately viewed as a Tree of Death.
Wow. So much wrong, so little time. Let’s start by mentioning the murderers of abortion providers who have a “fanatical devotion” to Christianity, shall we, and then just move on from there. Two can play at this game.
