Ray Comfort is Right - Don't Be Surprised If People Act Like Animals Because They're Taught They Are Just Animals!

Looking at how atheists tend to brag that they are the most "scientific" people on Earth because they reject God the Author of science, I found this quote by Ray Comfort to be very true.  It's really weird how people complain their children aren't behaving right, are lying to them, doing what's wrong because of these two lies that are widespread namely (1) there are no moral absolutes and (2) they are just animals.  Speaking of animals, some people even use the misbehavior of animals to justify their misbehavior like a sexually promiscuous lifestyle, incest or homosexuality.  So don't tell me the'll also eat their own dirt or urinate everywhere because animals do it?  It also becomes wrong like, "Don't act like an animal." when you are teaching people that they are animals.

I am still reminded of the hypocrisy of famous atheist Richard Dawkins who said this:
"The total amount of suffering per year in the natural world is beyond all decent contemplation.  During the minute that it takes me to compose this sentence, thousands of animals are being eaten alive, many others are running for their lives, whimpering with fear, others are slowly being devoured from within by rasping parasites, thousands of all kinds are dying of starvation, thirst, and disease.  It must be so.  If there ever is a time of plenty, this very fact will automatically lead to an increase in the population until the natural state of starvation and misery is restored.  In a universe of electrons and selfish genes, blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky, and you won't find any rhyme or reason in it, nor any justice.  The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but pitiless indifference."

If there's no evil and no good but just pitiless indifference then behaving like animals and killing each other should be tolerated.  If there's no moral absolutes then there's no moral ground to condemn Roman Catholic tyrants and Islamic terrorists of their actions.  For any atheist to state that at least the atheist dictators didn't kill in the name of atheism are dead wrong.  Whether a murder is done in the name of God or not, it's still the taking away of life against God's orders.  The atheistic genocides were no better than the Roman Catholic genocides or the Islamic genocides.  If there's no right or wrong then the very misdeed of raping altar boys is cannot be condemned because the Roman Catholic priest is stronger than the altar boy he's raping or if people perish because of Islamic terrorist attacks, that act cannot be condemned under a moral system of pitiless indifference.

If you want people to stop acting like animals then stop teaching them they are animals and instead, teach them the truth of the Scripture that science is fearfully and wonderfully made.  Besides, it's not even scientific to teach men came from animals, are animals, came from apes or have a common ancestor with apes - it's just biologically impossible.  Apes will always be apes and humans will always be humans and there is no way that an ape and a human can reproduce with each other because of the law of genetics.  Genetics always had this rule, "Everything reproduces by its own kind."  God wrote the laws of science so it's utterly foolish to try and fight Him.  The problem is that man still refuses to believe as Romans 1:21 says, "Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened."
