Yes, the belief that over time people formed from traits that caused them to survive... SOOO damaging to society... What are people thinking letting a theory backed by tons if EMPIRICAL data and logic be taugh in our schools instead of Godidit!

I really don't see how a belief in evolution has anything to do with the state of the world today (which surely isn't as bad as the state of the world during, say, the Cuba missile crisis, or WWII- unless you think the deaths of hundreds of millions is a small price to pay to suppress gay rights, which you probably do).
Athiests have been shown to be at least as moral as Christians, so I'm afraid you need to look elsewhere for the cause. Perhaps the huge gap between rich people and poor people?
BUT, even if the world is a terrible place today, and even if it's because we all believe in natural selection, then that doesn't mean that natural selecion isn't true.

And teaching them that they were made from dirt and deserve to burn in a lake of fire forever is better... how?

One of society's major problems is willful ignorance. Evidence of evolution is everywhere but people like you insist on shutting your eyes and covering ears while banging your head against your Bible yelling at the top of your lungs, "GODDIDIT GODDIDIT GODDIDIT"

the problem we have nowadays is that we don't give people value. Our society is so dehumanised that only money, celebraty and commodities matter.
Regardless of the religious aspects of life, that is a personal decision, the value and worth of each individual and the race of the whole needs appreciating.
(sorry just re-read this - it is a bit prissy. But I do believe that humanity is mor than just instinct - we aspire, we have music tha ttouches the "soul" and art too. We see beyond the horizon, we recognise our mortality and the measure set on our lifes, and yet live to do what we can, or must!)
