Science destroys morality
This is completely wrong and arguably backwards, in that religion is much more often responsible for tremendous lapses in morality, whereas science goes to extreme lengths to overcome personal bias in seeking the truth and is thus much less amenable (than religion or even everyday, non-structured moral philosophy) to corrupting influences (e.g. powermongery).
- 2008: The creationist movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed argues that science leads to Nazism
- 2007-04-16 creationism activist Ken Ham offered the same explanation for the 2007 Virginia Tech shootings.
- 1999: then-House Majority Leader Tom DeLay stated that science was the cause of the 1999 Columbine shooting.
