Letter: Get America back on the ‘moral’ track
Our nation is losing its moral strength and its civil culture. More couples are co-habitating, rather than living as married couples. Even marriages are broken up many more times than only a few decades ago.
A larger percentage of our citizens no longer follow or belong to religious organizations. They act offended if any aspects of religion are publicly displayed.
They no longer believe in correcting their children. The old adage of “spare the rod and spoil the child” is still true, but unlawful. If you spank your child, you stand the chance of committing a felony and losing your child.
The murder rate, robberies, spousal abuse, and many other crimes are in the news.
This nation needs to return to the religious base on which it was formed and on which it has become the most wealthy and powerful nation in the world. It should also stop drifting toward socialism and return to solid capitalistic democracy, one nation under God.
I was raised during the Depression, when there was vast unemployment and poverty. There was less crime than now. Few people ever locked their doors.
There was greater happiness among the general population than now. People were more closely involved with their friends and neighbors than now, and kids played outdoors.
The only thing that I see that can stop the deterioration of our nation and our society is the realization that God did create this universe, this world, and every living thing in it. Then maybe families will become more morally correct and raise their children to know right from wrong, have respect for others, and other people’s property.
All life is composed of protein that is made from living cells of protein. Those who believe that life started from some amino acids produced early in history and evolved into DNA chromosomes, and then living cells, should explain just why our smartest scientists cannot produce protein. They must induce living cells to do it for them.
They should explain how the particles that composed the “Big Bang” managed to amass into such a tight globule beforehand. According to the scientific community, those particles and nothing else had gravitation. The force of gravity was obtained after the Big Bang when those particles encountered dark matter and dark energy and obtained bosons, thus obtaining gravity.
Agnostics and atheists should think about these things as well as why our planet is so endowed with oxygen, carbon, nitrogen, and water. Why are all things like iron, copper, lead, sulfur, etc., situated in concentrated streaks or veins for us to mine?
This universe was created by divine power and complete knowledge of all sciences and created all laws of genetics. Divinity has established as a fact that neither energy nor matter can be destroyed, only changed into some other form. Why would anyone, scientists included, think that life is the only thing in the universe that is destroyed with no aftermath?
