The question of whether man is inherently “good” or “evil” has inspired many poets and philosophers to produce a plethora of theater plays, poems, and tales. Human nature is by no means described by the Bible as good.
Atheists tell us that we should be good for goodness sake, that people can be good without God. But they don’t tell us how they know or how they measure what is “good.”

Morality in the secular worldview changes with each generation, but Christians have an unchanging standard and can consistently call actions right or wrong.
Evolutionists are correct in one thing: understanding where people came from is essential to understanding morality and answering the problems in our society.

Is human morality a product of evolution? It seems that priest-turned-evolutionary scientist Francisco Ayala presumes the answer is “yes.”
