Scientism, is the cult of science and the blind belief that 'science' whatever that word may mean, is always 'right'. Using science to 'sell' metaphysics is a very old program. For the modern Materialist, Marxist, National Socialist and Communist we have many cults that used science to sell their cant, dogma, lies, immorality and irrational stupidity including:
-Darwin's algae to alchemist theology [no proof of evolution was offered by Darwin, just grandiose fairy tales].
-Lenin's Marxism and Russian Socialism was proffered as the inevitable political-social development of society, buttressed by the science of Marx.
-Hitler's National Socialism used Evolution as its 'science' to prove that superior races must and did exist; and that the Aryan race at the apogee of development had a moral right to exterminate inferior races including Jews, Slavs and in Hitler's famous words, Catholics, who oppose 'science' [meaning evolution].
Atheism is a cult based on Materialist-Evolutionary metaphysics. Atheism is of course an immoral construct and informed both Communism and its twin, Fascism. Both of these programs are concerned with killing the individual and his free-will and placing him under the control of a communal cult. In this regard Atheists must have little issue with killing the weak, the sick, the 'naturally unevolved', or the sub-human such as Jews or Catholics who oppose Hitler's 'science'.
“If you want a simple explanation for lizard diversity on Caribbean islands, Darwinism isn’t it, suggests an article on Science Daily about researchers from University of Nottingham who claim they are “shedding light on a 150-year-old evolutionary puzzle.” The team could not rely on Darwin alone: “their model revealed that different ecological and evolutionary processes are responsible on each island.” Call Ockham. Then call Dobzhansky (Mr. “Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution”). Evolution does not explain anything.
The objections to the cult of Darwin are endless. The above is one example amongst one billion. Anyone who has studied grade 9 science and biology would find the pond scum to professor theology laughable. DNA is software code and code does not write itself. Today unfortunately, corruption and mindless meme propaganda, is now taken to be science.
In this vein the hysteria over globaloneywarming can only be believed by an Atheist under whatever label they classify themselves [Humanist being the most common]. Plant food which is a trace chemical does not cause weather. Period. But if you hate the human, view modern civilization as a curse; extol abortion and the murder of old people, and scream that Islam-is-peace; than it follows rather religiously, that you will wail over plant food and its destruction of Gaia, based on fraud, data manipulation, lies and propaganda, all of which now means 'science'.
Science now means ignorance.
