Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Gab@StFerdinandIII - 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 madness of crowds and the cults of materialism

Irrational, unscientific, immoral.....

by StFerdIII

 

Tulip mania. South Sea bubble, and the Mississippi Land scams. Communism, Marxism, National Socialism. Dot com stocks, real estate, and sundry finance bubbles since 1819. The madness of crowds. Today we have a belief in walking fish with human heads; the cult of warming or changing; and Islam-is-peace. The madness of the communal, saturated by state propaganda, declaiming their solidarity with 'science', much as the Germans supported Darwinian evolution embedded in the Nazi cult; or the Russians the 'scientism' of dialectical Socialism. Both were proven by 'experts' who confirmed to the enthusiastic and quite mad crowds, that 'science' was on their side.....the madness of it all. So much for 'evolution' and 'progress'.

Patrick Glynn, an Ivy League trained Phd, scientist and former Atheist wrote, 'God the Evidence'. This elite-trained man converted to Christianity after re-studying science.

As Glynn recounts the 'convenient coincidences' explaining life are very long indeed:

-Gravity is roughly 10 to the 39 times weaker than electromagnetism. If gravity had been 10 to the 33 times weaker than electromagnetism, 'stars would be a billion times less massive and would burn a million times faster.'

-The nuclear weak force is 10 to the 28 times the strength of gravity. Had the weak force been slightly weaker, all the hydrogen in the universe would have been turned to helium (making water impossible for example).

-A stronger nuclear strong force (by as little as 2 per cent) would have prevented the formation of protons – yielding a universe without atoms. Decreasing it by 5 percent would have given us a universe without stars.

-If the difference in mass between a proton and a neutron were not exactly as it is – roughly twice the mass of an electron – then all neutrons would have become protons or vice versa.

...and the list goes on for quite a while. [See also John Leslie's 'Universes' for a complete list].

What Glynn is stating is that mechanistic science which arose with Copernican astrology and Newtonian physics, cannot explain all of the 'coincidences' around the creation of life, or even the beginning of the universe. Mechanistic rationality destroyed in many people a religious system of belief.

Glynn: “As the mechanistic explanation expanded, it left increasingly little room for God. By the eighteenth century, theism – or the belief in a personal God – had given way to deism – or the view of God as simply the 'first cause' and underlying principle of rationality in the universe.”

Atheism followed from Deism when geology 'proved' that the earth was 4 billion years old and Darwin published his Origins in 1859, outlining the 'random' but nicely packaged idea of a natural-evolutionary survival of the fittest. Evolution has so many holes in its theorems you can drive a herd of magically-formed dinosaurs threw it. Geology makes it clear that uniformitarianism, a bedrock so to speak of the cult of Darwin, is utterly incorrect. The earth's climate and geology is one of catastrophe and quite rapid change. Yet from these fraudulent 19th century 'discoveries' flowed the idea that all of life was one gigantic mistake, or to paraphrase the atheist Bertrand Russell, a set of coincidences in a backwater in a small part of the universe.

 

How insane is the belief of these cults ? We can also include the cult of the state and its bastard offspring National Socialism, and National Communism both of which were used to destroy faith and institute materialism as the new theology. Both ideologies are of course basically the same. What these cults share is the madness they induce in the crowds of their supporters, along with irrationality and immorality.
