Q: Why is school violence a matter of ownership?

A: Let’s think about it this way. If the God of the Bible is our Creator, then that means God owns each one of us. Because He owns us, He has a right to tell us how we should live. We’re accountable to our Creator. Therefore, we must obey God’s laws.

Carl Sagan on the Beginning of Human Life, Part 1

“Despite many claims to the contrary, life does not begin at conception: It is an unbroken chain that stretches back nearly to the origin of the Earth, 4.6 billion years ago. Nor does human life begin at conception: it is an unbroken chain dating back to the origin of our species, tens or hundreds of thousands of years ago. Every human sperm and egg is, beyond the shadow of a doubt, alive. They are not human beings of course. However it could be argued that neither is a fertilized egg.”

– Carl Sagan, Is It Possible To Be Pro-Life and Pro-Choice, Parade Magazine, April 22, 1990, p. 5.

But through most of our public education system today, students are being taught that they’re a product of chance, random processes. They’re just evolved animals. If we’re just animals and there’s no Creator, then who owns us? Actually, this would mean that we own ourselves. Therefore, we’d be accountable to no one but ourselves.

This would also mean that there are no absolutes, so we have a right to decide how we want to live—if we can get away with it.

When Johnny is taught at school that he’s a result of evolution, and there’s no Creator, then when Johnny decides to harm his fellow students, one could say that he’s learned his lessons all too well.
