Creationist says teaching evolution is responsible for VA massacre

These flat earthers and bible beaters throw everything (and the kitchen sink) at their arguments to justify their unhinged positions.

Dr. Grady McMurtry, a creation evangelist and head of an outfit named Creation Worldview Ministries says that teaching the theory of evolution in public schools leads to a lack of respect for human life — thus explaining why the shootings at VA Tech occurred. Wait — didn’t Rod Parsley say it was about sin? Which is it?

[P]eople 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.

H/t, Herb.
