'Scientists Are Barking Up the Wrong Tree,' says Los Angeles Film Producer

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 29, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- A best-selling author and Los Angeles-based film producer says that scientists are misguided in their search for an evil gene in Adam Lanza.

According to Britain's Daily Mail, scientists are studying the DNA of Sandy Hook killer Adam Lanza, looking for an 'evil' gene. The study is said to be the first of its kind, and it will look closely at any genetic evidence for the killing of 20 children and six staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary School, as well as the murder of his own mother.

The producer of a new movie called "Genius" studies 15 Californian young people, who admitted that they would murder for money. Ray Comfort said, "These scientists can't see the forest for the trees, and this is what happens when there is a clash of two world views. Secular humanity says that mankind is basically good, and if someone does something evil (such as mass murder), they've gone off the rails and there must therefore be a reason for the moral failure. Perhaps he was bullied as a youth, didn't have a father figure, lost his job, or was jilted by a girlfriend. When that didn't fit this profile scientists decided to go on a ridiculous search for an 'evil' gene, so that the gene can be blamed."

Comfort, who is the best-selling author of more than 70 books, said, "The Bible's worldview is radically different. It says we all have an evil gene and it's called 'sin.' It's us, not the genes that are to blame. If that is a bitter pill to swallow, watch the news tonight for evidence that man is basically evil. You will read and hear of rapes, murders, adultery, greed, pornography, hatred, torture, lying, stealing, blasphemy, and that's just the tiny tip of a massive iceberg. There's corruption in politics, in churches, in businesses, in sports -- in every sphere of society, and all that evil starts in the human heart, not in some isolated evil gene. Adam Lanza was a normal sinful human being, and he decided he would commit mass murder. That's it. It's horrific. It's tragic, but it happens every day on a smaller scale."

Comfort added, "We have to stop looking elsewhere for the problem, and do some thorough introspection. America will never get on its feet, until she first gets on her knees."
