Moral Darwinism in the September 11th Epic Poem

But they will sob it’s not their job
            To live a life that’s charmed.
How dare we claim that they’re to blame,
            If someone else is harmed?
It seems less bad to live a tad
            With pleasure as their guide,   
Once they’ve explained that life restrained
            Is just like suicide.
 
For they will say no single way
            Is better than the rest.
The golden law in all its awe
            Is really not the best.
They’ll say we’ve built a sense of guilt
            Through artificial wit;
For modern lore cannot ignore
            Survival of the fit.
 
For Darwin proved that it behooved
            All life to fight and strive,
Since none of those who helped their foes 
            Could flourish and survive.
The modern state invalidates
            The view of days gone by:
That folks should seek to help the weak
            Whom nature chose to die.
 
(Excerpt from chapter 12)

    An indictment of liberalism.
    Interesting, considering it was fundamentalists who rammed planes into the World Trade Center.

    Thanks for your comment K.

    Yes, fundamentalists slammed airplanes into walls, but on the other hand Darwinists killed the Jews. Obviously you can’t accuse all Darwinists of supporting Genocide, or all fundamentalists of supporting terrorism.

    I want to be clear that I am not saying Darwinists are worse than your average human being. What I am saying, is that it is virtual impossible to come up with a rational, Darwinist argument for “loving your enemy” and “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” The logic that Jesus gives to support both of these actions is fundamentalist. (Matthew 5:44, 7:12)

    Take care,
    Daniel
