    Don't know for sure if Darwinism is the culprit of devaluing human life, but the concept certainly turns people down a path of callousness.

    Darwin founded only the physical (things that can be seen) attributes of life. It has nothing to do with the Spiritual (the unseen) which is the true value of life. However it attempt, it cannot devalue human life since Humans will stay Spiritual no matter what the arguments because Human is a spiritual being. What devalue human life is bad spiritual perceptions and practices. smile

    Yes, absolutely,
    Part of communism's theory is also based on Darwinism.

    Existence can devalue human life. What is infinitely special to us as individuals is infinitely worthless to the universe and just slightly above completely meaningless in terms of our own planet. (an individual's life, that is)


    So at best, I would say Darwinism may highlight this.

    But even then, one can make the argument that is improves the value of human life as the life of 1 individual is sort of like a stepping stone, and a learning process, for the whole human society. This makes the value of a human's life pretty high as many humans down the line may benefit from what has happened with earlier human lives, giving them long lasting value that cascades out into infinite.... ok somewhat too dramatic but you get my point.

    Nope

    Only a person themselves can devalue their own life. Of course in USA it's a mass movement.

    not in the least. if anything he made us more aware and realistic. using his ideas we should realise that we are responsible for our lives not some spirit. he has made many people think and that is a good thing.
