Q: Is there any evidence that suicide is a result of evolutionary thinking?

A: There certainly is. Following is a testimony from one of our Answers in Genesis staff.

Noncreationist Quote of the Week

“Research on the origin of life seems to be unique in that the conclusion has already been authoritatively accepted ... . What remains to be done is to find the scenarios which describe the detailed mechanisms and processes by which this happened.

“One must conclude that, contrary to the established and current wisdom, a scenario describing the genesis of life on earth by chance and natural causes which can be accepted on the basis of fact and not faith has not yet been written.”

– Yockey, H.P., A calculation of the probability of spontaneous biogenesis by information theory, Journal of Theoretical Biology 67:377–398, 1977; quotes from pp. 379, 396.

“I grew up in a church that taught me to believe in God and that He used evolution to make everything. Sadly, this had a devastating effect on my life. By the time I graduated from high school, I realized that we were products of chance and there probably wasn’t a God at all.

“A couple of years later, while in college, I came to the realization that all there was to life was working till you retired, grew old and died. And for what? I just really didn’t want to go through all of that. So I planned my own suicide.

“But God intervened and used another person to lead me to the Creator of the universe—Jesus Christ. I found out that life with Christ had a purpose and I no longer wanted to die.”

Sadly, many young lives are being destroyed daily because of evolutionary teaching and its consequence of hopelessness and purposelessness. Think about the public education system that teaches children all day long: “There is no God; therefore there is no basis for any hope whatsoever.” If only they found their answers in God’s Word, beginning with Genesis.
