When browsing the posts here, I often see comments like "Our society has become so immoral..." and "The decline of morality in our society...". My question is, is society really getting more immoral? Was there ever really a time in which God's commandments were kept in near-perfect harmony, and existence as a whole was carried out very close to God's will? Personally, I don't think morality has actually declined in society. Violent crime rates are actually much lower than they were in any previous generation (that's according to my psychology teacher; I don't have a source to back this up). As the world gets more and more educated, crime rates fall - I think that the fact that education and crime rate are inversely related is pretty self-evident. Now, I realize that lower crime rates do not always translate into lower instances of sin. Sins like lying, adultery, and homosexuality are not illegal. But I think that they're probably a fairly good indication. So, do you think that morality in the present-day society is actually declining? If so, what evidence is there to back such a statement up?
