An emotion such as fear, for example, isn't just a mindless response to the environment as Evolutionists would have us believe; it involves a belief that something scary looms, and that action should be taken to remove oneself from danger. This doesn't mean we should always trust our emotions – they can be wrong. But it does allow for the possibility of training our emotions to become appropriate responses to the world around us. As Aristotle wrote, the enlightened person is one who'll respond in the appropriate manner to each situation. This is what's missing from Liberals and Atheists – the ability to adapt their behavior according to the situations in which they find themselves. Rather, they just sit around and make noise, blaspheme and raise taxes.
