Description

At a forum on depression a young man said, "I think some people may have an inability to cope and maybe, this might sound a bit extreme, that might be Darwinian theory, the Darwin theory of survival of the fittest. Maybe some of us aren't meant to survive, maybe some of us are meant to kill ourselves."

Now why did this young man think human life has such little value? Perhaps he'd heard people like Oxford Professor Dr Peter Atkins who said, "We are just a bit of slime on the planet." Likewise, psychologist Susan Blackmore said, "If you really think about evolution and why we human beings are here, you have to come to the conclusion that we're here for absolutely no reason at all."

What a stark contrast to the words of Jesus, who said, "I have come that they might have life and have it to the full."
