Trotsky said, "Darwin destroyed the last of my ideological prejudices. … In the Odessa prison I felt something like hard scientific ground under my feet. Facts began to establish themselves in a certain system. The idea of evolution and determinism — that is, the idea of a gradual development conditioned by the character of the material world — took possession of me completely.

‘Darwin stood for me like a mighty doorkeeper at the entrance to the temple of the universe. I was intoxicated with his minute, precise, conscientious and at the same time powerful, thought. I was the more astonished when I read … that he had preserved his belief in God. I absolutely declined to understand how a theory of the origin of species by way of natural selection and sexual selection and a belief in God could find room in one and the same head."

Anyway, I think this shows that, in his mind, it
gave him justification for thousands of murders.
I also think that the teaching of evolution (as a fact) hurts the morals of children in schools.
If we are not special, but just an accident of nature, why are there any morals? Why is it wrong
to kill? Actually that is a good question for you.
Why are people instiled with morals? Why is killing wrong? If an ape kills another ape, is that morally wrong? And about fundalmentalism being dangerous, do you really believe that if everyone believed that God created the universe
that our society would collapse? KC2GWX 73's
