    No, truly ignoring. Iirc, he was the fellow who was obviously posting from the library but wouldn't admit it.

    Almost all of his posts are gone now.

    This country is in a moral free fall. For over two generations, the public school system has taught in a moral vacuum, expelling God from the school and from the government, replacing Him with evolution, where the strong kill the weak, without moral consequences and life has no inherent value.
    We teach there are no absolutes, no right or wrong. And I assure you the murder of innocent children is always wrong, including by abortion. Abortion has diminished the value of children.

    another evolution horror the suicide rate is up


    Data from the National Vital Statistics System, Mortality

    From 1999 through 2017, the age-adjusted suicide rate increased 33% from 10.5 to 14.0 per 100,000.
    Suicide rates were significantly higher in 2017 compared with 1999 among females aged 10–14 (1.7 and 0.5, respectively), 15–24 (5.8 and 3.0), 25–44 (7.8 and 5.5), 45–64 (9.7 and 6.0), and 65–74 (6.2 and 4.1).
    Suicide rates were significantly higher in 2017 compared with 1999 among males aged 10–14 (3.3 and 1.9, respectively), 15–24 (22.7 and 16.8), 25–44 (27.5 and 21.6), 45–64 (30.1 and 20.8) and 65–74 (26.2 and 24.7).
    In 2017, the age-adjusted suicide rate for the most rural (noncore) counties was 1.8 times the rate for the most urban (large central metro) counties (20.0 and 11.1 per 100,000, respectively).

    So the suicide rate is higher for areas where evolution is not as well accepted as it is in more urban areas. The correlation between rural environments, and conservatism and rejection of evolution is well-documented.

    Superficially, it would seem that rejecting evolution is a cause of suicide. But correlation is not causation. I would suggest that it is due to other factors.

    On the other hand, there is also an inverse correlation between the number of Americans who accept evolution, and violence. An increase in acceptance of evolution over the last few decades has happened as violence has declined strongly.

    While superficially, this also suggests that creationism causes violence, I do not think there is a cause and effect going on here.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    the unintended or intended consequences of evolution are violence and suicide are acceptable .

    there was cause and effect of evolution with the Columbine High School shooters

    Well, evolution isn't synonymous with atheism or nihilism so equating violence/suicide is a silly stretch at best.

    Creationism OTOH is pretty much consistent with unwavering fundamentalism and some of the type of stuff that that encapsulates involves society being under laws whereby we have people being dragged off to be stoned to death for "crimes" that a modern "civilized" society would balk at.
    Well this is fun isn't it?
