Mohler Monday: "Evolutionary theory stands at the base of moral relativism"

 Evolutionary theory stands at the base of moral relativism and the rejection of traditional morality. If human beings are not made in the image of God, and if the entire cosmos is nothing more than a freakish accident, morality is nothing but a mirage and human beings–cosmic accidents that we are–are free to negotiate whatever moral arrangement seems best to us at any given time. Human life has no inherent dignity, morality has no objective basis, and we are alone in the universe to eat drink and be merry before our bones join the fossil record and we pass from existence. -- Albert Mohler, 2004
I'm working my way through Albert Mohler's posts on "evolutionism", which is his term for the philosophical/theological ideas that get dragged along with the science of neo-darwinism.  So, for the next several weeks I plan on posting a Mohler Monday quote.
