From Answers in Genesis
The reason the question of origins affects politics is a question of which foundation. Creation has Gods Word as the foundation and with God as creator, he has the right to set standards. Evolution has man's opinion as the foundation and with out God as creator there is no bases for morality.
The Founding Fathers believed in God as creator and so creation formed the bases for our laws, the Constitution and our whole civilization.
The Declaration of Independence states:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Note that it assumes that man was created and that our rights came from the Creator. Evolution removes the creator and thereby the bases for Unalienable Rights. These rights are then reduced to Government granted privileges, which can be revoked at the whim of the Government. So is it any wonder that the acceptance of Evolution has gone hand in hand with the erosion of individual rights.
From Answers in Genesis
As Evolution has become more and more accepted, the foundation has been eroded causing a deterioration of these founding principles. This results in a loss of standards, increased government corruption, and loss of genuine rights. Evolution does not cause this directly, but by eroding the Biblical Foundation of Society it has helped bring about the environment for these to thrive.
The issue of Homosexual "marriage" provides an excellent example of this. The Bible says that God instituted marriage as between a man and a woman.
Genesis 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
When the U.S. was founded it was generally accepted that God is the creator and that marriage was instituted by God therefor no one thought that it had to be legally defined nor constitutional protected. It was not even considered a power of the Government to define marriage.
According to Evolution marriage is just a product of human society. As a product of human society, government can define marriage. The result is that with the acceptance of evolution some people feel free to redefine marriage so as to justify their perversion.
Unfortunately because of the loss of standards in the judiciary as well, they could get their perverted redefinition forced on all 50 state, by the U.S. supreme Court, unless a constitutional amendment is passed to prevent it.
For the record such so called marriages are not real marriages. They never will be regardless of what the government says.
Another good example is abortion
The way to understanding the abortion issue is the question of the person hood of the unborn baby. To someone who is thinks abortions should be legal the unborn baby is not a person and so abortion is seen as a woman's choice. Those of us who are pro life, see that an unborn baby is a person and so abortion is murder.
The bases for the pro life position are both Biblical and scientific.
27. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Man was made in Gods image.
Genesis 9:6. Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.
Exodus 21: 12. He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death.
Murders should be put to death.
Exodus 21: 22-23.
22. If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.
23. And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life,
The Bible clearly equates the killing of an unborn baby to murder. The conclusion is that abortion murder.
At conception, a baby has all of genetic material to be human and both parents are human, so how can the baby be anything but human. This shows that an unborn baby is a human being. Killing them ( abortion ) is nothing short of murder.
The pro abortion ( "pro choice" ) position assumes that an unborn baby is not human. This idea originates from Ernst Haeckel' theory call recapitulation. According to this theory the embryo goes through the entire evolutionary history of the species. It was proven to a fraud during Haeckel life time.
This is a dangerous philosophy because it dehumanizes some members of the human race. It risks the possibility that other humans will be declared non humans, so that their rights can to be ignored. This will allow them to be killed or enslaved with out consciences
Another major flaw in the pro abortion position is the fact it gives one person absolute authority over the lives of two other people. The emphasis in pro abortion position is only on the woman, while totally ignoring the fact that there are two people involved in a pregnancy. These two people are the father and baby. Under the state of law created by Roe v. Wade the woman has absolute power in the situation. If the woman has an abortion, the baby is murdered in any number of cruel ways. If the woman chooses not to murder her baby, she can use the courts to force the man to pay for support of the child for the next 18 years. Under Roe v. Wade both the man and the baby, have no choice and no rights, while the woman has both in absolute. When one person has absolute power over other that is by definition tyranny. Despite the use of the term "pro choice" the pro abortion position is not about choice but legalized tyranny.
These two examples show how evolution can negatively influence politics.
