Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Islam, the State, the cult of Gay and Queer, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, 'Science', Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion....a nice variety for the human-hater, amoral, anti-rationalist to choose from.  It is so much fun mocking them isn't it ?

The Holy Church of Atheism and its dogmatic miracles

Magic happens! Dead matter created life and nothing created everything.

Bookmark and Share

 

 Atheists are very religious. Their cult has an unlimited set of dogmas, an extensive liturgy, mindless rituals and a great capacity to fit observations which run contrary to science, reason, and logic, into their Bible. Abiogenesis which is impossible is one example, though Atheists will say 'of course we don't believe in life from dead matter...' But Atheism by its own insipid illogic, demands only natural explanations, including the origins of the universe, of life, and the creation of multi-cellular organisms from nothing. Complexity by chance and chaos, spiced with time. This is the holy trinity of Atheism.


 

Here are five major examples of materialists believing in magic (and there are more), or miraculous events without any sufficient explanation or cause for those events.

  

Below is edited from here.

 

1. Origin of the Universe

Materialists (atheists) once tried to believe that the universe was eternal, to erase the question of where it came from. The famous British atheist Bertrand Russell, for example, took this position. However, this is not tenable. The progress of scientific knowledge about thermodynamics, for example, means that virtually everyone has been forced to acknowledge that the universe had a beginning, somewhere, sometime—the big bang idea acknowledges this (ideas like the multiverse only put the beginning more remotely, but do not get rid of the pesky problem).4

 

The big bang attempts to explain the beginning of the universe. However, what did it begin from and what caused it to begin? Ultimately, it could not have come from a matter/energy source, the same sort of stuff as our universe, because that matter/energy should also be subject to the same physical laws, and therefore decay, and it would have had a beginning too, just further back in time.

 

So, it had to come from? Nothing! Nothing became everything with no cause whatsoever. Magic!

The universe burst into something from absolutely nothing—zero, nada. And as it got bigger, it became filled with even more stuff that came from absolutely nowhere. How is that possible? Ask Alan Guth. His theory of inflation helps explain everything.”

So proclaimed the front cover of Discover magazine, April 2002.

 

Physicist Lawrence Krauss, one of the loud ‘new atheists’, has tried to explain how everything came from nothing; he even wrote a book about it.5 However, his ‘nothing’ is a ‘quantum vacuum’, which is not actually nothing. Indeed, a matter/energy quantum something has exactly the same problem as eternal universes; it cannot have persisted for eternity in the past, so all their theorizing only applies after the universe (something) exists.6 Back to square one!

 

Materialists have no explanation for the origin of the universe, beyond ‘it happened because we are here!

 

There are other aspects of the big bang, the ‘mainstream’ model of the universe’s origin, that are also miraculous. The ‘standard model’ has a period of very rapid expansion called ‘inflation’. There is no known cause for the initiation of this supposed expansion, no known cause for it to stop and no physical mechanism for the extremely rapid expansion (many orders of magnitude faster than the speed of light). However, these three associated miracles must have happened or the big bang does not work because of the ‘horizon problem’. More magic!

 
 

2. Origin of stars

.there had to have been two phases of star formation. Phase 1 involved the formation of hydrogen/helium stars (which are called Population III stars7). Here is the first problem: how do you get gases formed in a rapidly expanding primordial universe to coalesce together to form a critical mass so that there is sufficient gravitational attraction to attract more gas to grow a star? Gases don’t tend to come together; they disperse, especially where there is a huge amount of energy (heat).8 Hey presto! Cosmologists invented ‘dark matter’, which is invisible undetectable ‘stuff’ that just happens to generate a lot of gravitational attraction just where it is needed. More magic!9

 

...Phase 2 supposedly comes in here. Exploding stars (supernovas) from phase 1 produced sufficient pressure to force hydrogen and helium together to make new stars that made all the heavier elements (which astronomers call ‘metals’), including the elements of which we are made. These stars are called Population I and II stars.

 

Now here is another problem: how do exploding stars, with matter flying at great speed in all directions, cause stars made of all those new elements to form? There has to be a coming together of the elements, not a flying apart.... supernovas are not common events, especially multiple ones at the same time in close proximity. Thus, this scenario requires a huge number of very improbable events to account for the vast numbers of the heavier stars.

This is more magic; miracles without a miracle worker.

 

3. Origin of life

Astrobiologist Professor Paul Davies said,

How did stupid atoms spontaneously write their own software … ? Nobody knows … there is no known law of physics able to create information from nothing.”10

 

Not only must the DNA code be explained (how can a coded information storage system come about without intelligent design?), but the incredible machinery that reads the information and creates the components of life from that information has to be explained as well.

 

Former hard-nosed English atheist philosopher Antony Flew abandoned atheism/materialism because of the growing evidence for such design in living things. He said,

It now seems to me that the findings of more than fifty years of DNA research have provided materials for a new and enormously powerful argument to design.”11

 

[he continues] This research,

has shown, by the almost unbelievable complexity of the arrangements which are needed to produce (life), that intelligence must have been involved”.12

 

That is, only an incredibly intelligent designer could account for the information systems in living things.

 

Well-known American atheist philosopher, Thomas Nagel said,

What is lacking, to my knowledge, is a credible argument that the story [of cosmic evolution] has a nonnegligible probability of being true. There are two questions. First, given what is known about the chemical basis of biology and genetics, what is the likelihood that self-reproducing life forms should have come into existence spontaneously on the early earth, solely through the operation of the laws of physics and chemistry?13 


The scientific knowledge of life grows daily, and as it does the prospects of a naturalistic (materialistic/atheistic) explanation for its origin recede into the distance. The origin of life is another miracle.14 ‘Stuff happens’? More magic.

 

4. Origin of the diversity of life (Design? What design?)

The origin of life is only the beginning of the problem for the materialist. Along with other atheistic biologists, Richard Dawkins has spent his life trying to deny that living things exhibit supernatural design. In the book that ‘put him on the map’, he wrote,

 

Biology is the study of complicated things that give the appearance of having been designed for a purpose.”15

 

The diversity of life is a huge problem. How did a microbe change itself into every living thing on earth, ranging from earwigs to elephants, from mites to mango trees? For almost a hundred years, mutations and natural selection, the mechanisms of ‘neo-Darwinism’, or ‘the modern synthesis’, have been said to explain this diversity of life. However, with our modern knowledge of living things, this has proved useless as an explanation.


 In July 2008, 16 high profile evolutionists met, by invitation, in Altenburg, Austria. They had come because they realized that mutations and natural selection did not explain the diversity of life, and they had come together to discuss this crisis in evolutionary biology. The only consensus was that there is a major problem, a crisis.16

 

Thomas Nagel (continuing from the earlier quote) put it this way:

The second question is about the sources of variation in the evolutionary process that was set in motion once life began: In the available geological time since the first life forms appeared on earth, what is the likelihood that, as a result of physical accident, a sequence of viable genetic mutations should have occurred that was sufficient to permit natural selection to produce the organisms that actually exist?17

 

Think of the supposed origin of humans from a chimp-like ape in six million evolutionary years. Modern comparison of the genomes shows such large differences (of at least 20%) that this is just not feasible, even with highly unrealistic assumptions in favour of evolution.18Actually, it was not even feasible when the difference was incorrectly trumpeted to be about 1%.19

 

Materialists have no sufficient explanation (cause) for the diversity of life. There is a mind-boggling plethora of miracles here, not just one. Every basic type of life form is a miracle.

 

5. Origin of mind and morality

The origin of mind and morality from energy and atoms has long been a problem for the materialist. It is a major theme of philosopher Thomas Nagel’s book, Mind and Cosmos, already referred to.

 

A fig tree produces figs, not apples. That seems obvious. Likewise, physics and chemistry produce physical and chemical outcomes. However, mind and morality are not just matters of physics and chemistry. Sure, creatures that are physical and chemical have mind and morality, but how did such non-material things arise from the material? This is a serious problem for materialism, and the atheist Nagel candidly admits it, to the extreme annoyance of his atheistic colleagues.22

 

The famous (and reluctant) convert from atheism to Christianity, C.S. Lewis, put it well when he wrote,

If the solar system was brought about by an accidental collision, then the appearance of organic life on this planet was also an accident, and the whole evolution of Man was an accident too. If so, then all our present thoughts are mere accidents—the accidental by-product of the movement of atoms. And this holds for the thoughts of the materialists and astronomers as well as for anyone else’s. But if their thoughts—i.e. of materialism and astronomy—are merely accidental by-products, why should we believe them to be true? I see no reason for believing that one accident should be able to give me a correct account of all the other accidents. It’s like expecting that the accidental shape taken by the splash when you upset a milkjug should give you a correct account of how the jug was made and why it was upset.”23


 

The atheist has no sufficient cause to explain the existence of mind and morality. Magic happens!

Climate hooey. There is no science but lots of Watermelon Socialism. Endless hand-outs, disfigured landscapes and eco systems. Stacks of dead birds and bats. Along with a decrease in energy production, the elimination of Coal power plants and the resultant trebling in utility and hydro rates.


 

The Green cult benefits only the Mandarins, the liars, the quackademics and anyone else who is willing to sell their soul for money and power. It does not benefit the average person, no matter how piously they pray that the satanic trace chemical called plant food, would stop tormenting their Goddess Gaia.


 

Even the lamebrain MSM is apostatizing. The massive governmental interference to 'save Gaia' from plant food will do nothing to change natural cycles and climate. Nothing. Except enrich the corrupt and despotic.


 

WSJ Opinion Article: History of a Climate Con


 

The president’s [Imam Obama] power-plant rules, even if climate models are accurate, would affect global temperature a century hence by 0.03 degrees Celsius. His fuel mileage rules, though costly to Detroit and a life-support for Tesla, would have even less effect.

The renewable subsidies that SunEdison exploited so recklessly that it may soon be in chapter 11 are good for killing birds. The non-binding Paris agreement Mr. Obama signed in December explicitly stipulates that India and China, the two fast-growing emitters, will keep on emitting as if no agreement had been signed.”


 

Climate lies are not science.

-the greenhouse is a myth, heat will obviously escape into space it is not 'trapped' anywhere

-Co2 is a cooling agent

-Co2 is a trace chemical 4/100 of 1 % of atmospheric gas by weight 95 % emitted by natural processes

-climate is a convection system with cosmic, local, regional, some global variables too complicated to model [see thermodynamics]

-models have failed - failed miserably - and have never been close to reality.  You can't even use them going backwards to drive out what actually happened.  They are garbage.

-Greentards mix up pollution or particulate emissions, with 'climate'.  


 

Watermelons [Green fascist on the outside, Red fascist on the inside]; are out for $ and control.  There is no science to any of it.  It is a cult.


 

 

The Atheist Creed. Church of the Holy Random Chance, Time and Mutations

What every Evolutionist must surely believe in.

Bookmark and Share

 

The Atheist Creed

We believe in one God the Father named Time,
and in almighty Random Chance,
Maker of all that is, seen and unseen. 

 

We believe in one Lord Mutation,
the only Son of Time,
eternally begotten of the Father,
Design from Chaos, Life from non-Life,
complex information from nothing,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father. 

 

Through him all things were made. 

For us pond scum and for our salvation
Mutation came down from Darwin's heaven:
and by the Holy Spirit of Time was incarnate
in the Virgin Lucy, a 3 foot high bonobo chimp,
who made man. 

 

For the sake of evolving chimps, mutation was crucified under genetic laws;
he suffered death and was buried, and has stopped evolving

 

Yet every day he rises again
in accordance with the Evolutionary Scriptures;
and he has ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father. 

 

We believe Mutation will come again in glory  to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom of turning Tulips into Teachers will have no end. 

 

We believe in the Holy Spirit of Time, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son. 

 

Who with the Father and the Son must be adored and glorified as science. 

 

Time has spoken through the Evolutionary Prophets. 

 

We believe in one holy Atheist and random chance, Church. 

 

We acknowledge one endless Evolutionary propaganda for the forgiveness of sins

 

And we look for the resurrection of positive mutations,
and the natural selection of the world to come.

 

Amen.

Cult of Evolution; complex molecules do not last millions of years

No science, just fiction.

Evolutionist theologians are confounded by a recent find in Poland in which intact traces of blood, amino acids, and proteins are purportedly 240 million years old.....How would remnants of blood and protein last 240 years, let alone 240 million ? 'The science' has no idea. But magic pixie dust, iron molecules or multi-verse inter-planetary forces are surely at work:

 

A video posted by Reuters shows the “‘oldest in world’ fossilized blood vessels.”

 

This fossil of a reptile is dated – by Evolutionists – to be 240 million years old. This is the oldest fossil with original traces of protein, ever to be found. The Poles claim that the specimen contains amino acids of collagen and that there are traces of blood vessels and their “molecular remnants”. How did the nano-technology last such deep time ? Where is the Lab, natural-world proof, that amino acids have the ability to last a few million years [forget about 200 million]?

 

Researchers were soon able to show that there was organic matter from prehistoric animals present in the bone,” including “fragments of amino acids that are typical components of collagen.” This was apparently “among other proteins” detected. This new claim is much older in the evolutionary time scale than the previous record, which they cite as 80 million years.”

 

The 'Science Media' better known as the Darwinist-Propaganda outlets, desperately hope that the public is acutely ignorant of bio-chemistry, biology, software and information systems. You can only cling to the cult of Evolutionary liturgy if you are completely uneducated. Bio-chemistry disproves that amino acids for example, would remain complete, intricate and observable for 'millions of years'. These complex molecules would of course break down into simpler sub-components.

 

Darwin's cult had a nervous melt-down when evolutionist cult member Schweitzer et al discovered [repeatedly observed now almost yearly], soft Dino Tissue. It is simply impossible that such complexity would not break down over this period.

 

It is not just dinosaur soft tissue, either, but the presence of detectable proteins such as collagen, hemoglobin, osteocalcin,actin, and tubulin that they must account for. These are complex molecules that continually tend to break down to simpler ones. Not only that, but in many cases, there are fine details of the bone matrix, with microscopically intact-looking bone cells (osteocytes) showing incredible detail. And Schweitzer has even recovered fragments of the even more fragile and complex molecule, DNA. This has been extracted from the bone cells with markers indicating its source such that it is extremely likely to be dinosaur DNA.”

 

Evolution is dogma and faith, not science.

 

No beneficial genetic mutations turning algae into the Alchemist are known. None

No facts + no science = Evolution.

Bookmark and Share

 

There are no beneficial mutations. At least none from various studies conducted in the past 50 years. This [along with 1 million other arguments and science], destroys Evolution.


 

The whole foundation of neo-Darwinian theory was built upon Fisher’s [1930s scientist and Evolution cult member] imaginary notion that small deleterious mutations could turn any form of life into any other.”


 

In other words in Fisher's 'neo' Darwinian fantasy world, beneficial mutations had to exist or else Evolution was an epic fail. And in this story telling, these never-discovered beneficial mutations would take algae and turn it into an Alchemist looking to render iron into gold.


 

He admits that he invents beneficial mutations to save Darwin, stating on p. 53 of his work, The Genetical Theory of Natural Selection:


 

“ …unless we are to abandon altogether the evolutionary conception of the modification of species by the occasional substitution of one gene for the predecessor from which it arose … [Darwin’s theory] requires that the successful new gene should in some way become dominant to its competitors, and if back mutations occur, to its predecessor also [emphasis in original].”


 

Yet again another example of a fraud, a cult fanatic, a deluded propagandist, claiming to be a scientist, yet ignoring science, reality and data, to push his metaphysical naturalism.


 

No beneficial mutations have been found. Zilch.


 

-The Human Gene Mutation Database currently contains records of more than 141,000 mutations. New ones are being discovered at a rate of over 11,000 per year. None are labelled ‘beneficial’.


 

-The Online Catalog of Human Genes and Genetic Disorders has 6,000 mutations that are ‘disease associated’ and ‘functional’ mutations which are known to be inherited in this way. There is no reference anywhere to ‘beneficial’ mutations.


 

-A sample of 179 genomes from The 1,000 Genomes Project found that the average person carries about 400 ‘disease associated’ mutations and two ‘disease causing’ mutations. NO discoveries have been reported for ‘beneficial’ mutations.


 

Basic software knowledge. Mutations are bugs, they kill, destroy, erase and impair. They don't add value. It is the Law of Entropy – all systems decline. This is one reason why species go extinct including Dinosaurs. Forget the fetish of big rocks. Bio chemistry is far more interesting and relevant.
