“The notion that human life is sacred just because it’s human is medieval,” writes Princeton ethics professor Peter Singer.

Singer is famous for outrageous ideas.

By his standards, bestiality, necrophilia, conception of children for body parts … are all OK. (… and I’m not making this up!)

See “Blue-State Philosopher.”

Such ideas shock the average person. How can anyone think such things?

The answer is worldview.


A worldview is a mix of philosophy and theology that answers basic questions about…

  • The nature of knowledge
  • The nature of good and evil
  • The nature of history
  • The nature of man
  • The nature of the world
  • The nature of God

Western culture has had a Christian worldview for almost 2000 years.

It’s the vestige of that worldview that makes Singer’s views shocking.

It’s the waning of that worldview that makes them possible.
