The Death of Common Sense

I have to explain this graphic a bit. Recently my wife discovered a snake in our front yard. Needless to say, she wasn't pleased by this development. So, she called Animal Control. And would you know it, they told her they couldn't come out unless it came into our house, because snake is in his natural habitat and is a protected species. What? It is a 4 foot snake in our front yard! Maybe if I could deliver it to their yard they may feel a little different.

The graphic above is tongue-in-cheek. But it illustrates the current problem we are having in our society. It used to be that common sense was the idea that we all experience life with a set of presuppositions that are in conformity with reality. Not so today, especially in western societies. Common sense has become very uncommon. And the reason this is so is that we reject God in our discussions. And when we do this, we reject reality. The end result of rejecting reality is insanity (or a depraved mind).
