Atheists, Christians, and Money
Just an observation that I have thought about for some time.
Many of the atheists I know lean left politically. Thus, they believe the government should be utilized to take care of people through social programs.
Now, many of the theists I know lean right politically and, thus, believe the government should not be used to help the poor because such a system would diminish the work ethic of society and foster laziness.
Here is what I find fascinating. Atheists believe in evolution; however, most desire a government system that flees from Social Darwinism. Many theists are creationists who passionately critique Darwinism. Yet, these same theists avidly promote an economic system based on the system, namely Social Darwinism.
Any thoughts and why you see this phenomenon in our culture? Why do the creationists pursue Social Darwinism and the Atheists pursue a system that helps the weakest in society?
