4-17-12 From earliest times two opposing philosophical premises have controlled the actions of humans. On the one hand you have what is called "Creationism" with the main plank being humans are under the authority of the Creator and must answer to our Creator. Creationists accept a responsibility over the creation as stewards of God. This responsibility demands caring for and nurturing God's handiwork, caring for each other as beings created in God's image. From this premise comes charities, hospitals, free food kitchens; the list is near endless. The weak are to be protected by the strong.
Number two is based on the idea that somehow everything came from nothing thus denying a simply stated truth, that from nothing, nothing could come. This premise cares not for the weak or the hungry or the infirm.
The creature's responsibilities are given in God's Word. The whatever that evolved from nothing responsibilities are expressed by the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche's pagan philosophy. Note:
"The weak and the botched shall perish: first principle of charity. And one should help them to it. What is more harmful than any vice? Sympathy for the botched and the weak-Christianity. If what I publish be true a feeble woman like you would have no right to exist." Written to an invalid woman.
Nietzsche asserts the strong have the scientific right to destroy the weak.
Romans 15:1"We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak.."
