From what I know of
Our thinking is that, if the Bible is correct, (and I believe it to be so) then our thoughts are the things that mould us and makes us (as we think in our hearts so we are - Proverbs 23: 7) for our thinking is that which generates the way we act. So, if we think that the universe is some mechanical process, then we tend to treat people like a machine; if we think that we are just an animal then, we tend to treat each other like animals.
It seems to me that Hitler believed that
If, on the other hand, we believe (think) that there is a mind behind our universe, and that we are created in the image of God then surely that thinking should encourage us to treat one another with dignity and respect! Richard Dawkins’ argument with me on TV was that he was more honourable than me as he did not need a God to stop him from pillaging and raping; his implication being that I did! My problem with that argument is that one person cannot negate what is going on in the world with great swathes of destruction and mans inhumanity to man. Our thinking that we can play God, and our devaluation of each other, is a daily fact whatever Richard thinks.
So what do I think of
