“We hold this truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal”
Is it any wonder so many atheists would have this country fundamentally changed. The very essence of our founding is anathema to their core beliefs. No atheists could have, would have ever written the words above.
Neither could an evolutionist worth his salt who would dare to be honest about the implications of his beliefs. If we have evolved from the primordial ooze, how could we be endowed with anything? Where is the intrinsic value of man, or even nature if it is simply the result of chance+matter+time?
However what if man is created. If we are instead the result of the actions of a supreme being, then man has been endowed with that worth. And nature, all of creation is of value.
