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 ?
Tempus Fugit Memento Mori - Time Flies Remember Death
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.
What is science ? There is operational practical science, using technology to resolve a problem, or make an indisputable invention, that can be replicated by others. Then there is metaphysics which is what much of the cult of science is about. Plant food is 4/100 of 1 % of atmospheric gas by weight, 95% emitted by Gaia. Yet the 'science' funded by about $1 Trillion per annum, screams that this chemical which falls out of complex convection systems, and which is necessary for life, somehow catalyzes the same system and destroys everything. This is akin to saying the sausage made the pig and the plastic wrapper. It is stupid not science.
Evolution is just as pathetic. Apparently nothing created everything – a scientific impossibility. Systems degrade they don't improve – the exact opposite of what the Church of Evolution preaches. The chance that molecules in a soupy pond combined to form Hilllarious Clinton is less than zero. In Origin, Ann Gauger points out the folly of expecting lifeless chemicals to come together into a living cell.
“If I put it amino acids in a test tube in my lab, even if I added heat and shook it up real well, and kept doing that for 100 years, or a thousand years, or 10,000 years, or a million years, nothing would happen.”
All the secular origin-of-life literature, however, gets pumped if amino acids or lipids or some other “building blocks of life” are discovered somewhere, in meteorites or stellar dust clouds. Paul Nelson offers a reality check:
'Amino acids, nucleotides, lipids – by themselves, they do not represent life. They’re inert. They’re not reproducing. They’re not storing information. In a sense, they’re dumb. They didn’t wake up one morning and say, ‘Hey, let’s all get together and build a cell that can replicate itself.’ Didn’t happen. Chemistry is indifferent to whether or not anything is alive or dead.
The Church of Evolution thumps its bible of cultish dogma screeching that self-organization and natural selection are the basis of all life forms. Somehow 'material' 'seeks out' a competitive advantage. This has not been observed. Blue green algae will always remain algae. Worse for the Church of Darwin is the obvious fact that natural selection is built into the existing software code. Humans will never have wings. The software code called DNA precludes 'selecting' that choice. Worse, natural selection requires accurate replication. I can't build rich information structures like proteins and genes through inaccurate replication, nor by striving, wishing, hoping, or 'selecting' what is not present. The Church of Evolution has only one dogma left which is unscientific and that is chance ?
What is the mathematical probably that amino acids made themselves, formed left handed structures, and syntactically arranged themselves into 150 strings held together by peptide bonds and fuelled by ATP synthase to create just 1 protein ? And now we need to multiply that by 2 million which is the protein and enzyme count within human bodies. The chance of that happening randomly is far less than you winning a lottery every day of your life.
In the film Origin, Dr. Timothy Standish considers the hopelessness of chance:
'If we can appreciate exactly how hard it is to produce one molecular machine using nothing except atoms and energy, we can see there is a profound problem.
Because once you have one molecular machine, you don’t have a living thing. These molecular machines need other molecular machines. And even if nature was capable of producing all the molecular machines necessary, that still wouldn’t be enough. They have to all be together, all in this tiny little membrane-bound space that we call, a cell.
The probability that you would get them in the same space at the same time becomes beyond unimaginable. And the probability that you would get them within a membrane enclosure (like a cell) is the next best thing to impossible.'
There is no chance that Evolution is real. There is no chance that it is science. It is however, funded with over a $ Trillion per annum, and the cult members control the institutions, the press and the journals. Not much has changed since National Socialism in Germany, or National Socialism in Russia.
Evolutionists and Atheists [usually the same cult]; believe that there was a virgin birth of the Universe. Apparently, there was nothing, then for some reason, all the matter and energy of the universe appeared in a dimensional object the size of a pinhead, which for unknown reasons exploded. The resulting chaos from the emission led somehow to a staggering array of order, precision and construction; including 'natural laws', complex chemical combinations, constellations, planets and life. Further, the life forms then 'evolved' by more magic through mutations which 99% of the time degrade or are neutral, into more complex life forms, contradicting the 2nd law of thermodynamics.
The above fairy tale is called science.
The virgin birth of the Universe within the Church of Evolution, is called the 'Big Bang'. Ironically it was a Catholic [very liberal] priest named Le Maitre who first proposed this general idea. There is not much science within the fairy tale and contrary to propaganda, it is a theory in crisis.
Some issues with the Universe's virgin birth miracle:
-Gravity waves do not disprove, nor prove, any theory about the origins of the universe contrary to propaganda.
-Gravity waves and 'cosmic inflation' are also based on human designed models. This means that you change the models, the inputs and the assumptions, and you will change the output. Cosmological 'science' has a long track record of 'astonishing news', faithfully reported by the news propaganda outlets, only to be destroyed later. Bicep2 is a case in point [http://arxiv.org/abs/1303.5083].
-More than 30 years ago, a theoretical physicist named Alan Guth suggested cosmic inflation to solve the horizon problem [the flatness problem with the Big Bang virgin birth model]. The theory of cosmic inflation proposes that 1034 seconds after the universe's virgin birth, there was a brief and rapid inflation of all matter, leading to a greater size and velocity much faster than the speed of light [invoking Star Trek]. This meant that the entire universe was in thermal contact because it needed to be into the thermal equilibrium before being pulled out of thermal equilibrium by inflation.
There is no evidence for inflation of course.
-Inflation is a theory in crisis. Mike Wall from Space.com recently whined: "We really need to understand what this substance - this inflation - is. And until we do that, it's just like dark matter or dark energy - we give it a name, but we don't know what it is." – see http://www.space.com/25078-universe-inflation-gravitational-waves-discovery.html.
-Evolution cult members mostly believe that the expanding universe is accelerating, but this theory does not conform to observations, so they invent 'dark energy' to balance out their equations. No one knows what dark energy is, nor has any been observed. But the media and general public believe in dark energy, because the cult of science told them they had to. When theories start inventing magic friends to explain reality, you know that the cult dogma is long past its prime.
-An expanding universe – central for virgin birth believers – is in serious doubt based on objective scientific cosmology [see http://johnhartnett.org/2014/01/01/galaxy-quasar-associations/].
An objective 'scientist' would be rather skeptical of Big Bang theology based on the thin evidence and even thinner probability of it being true. At the very least he would want a lot more facts before converting to the High Church of Chance. However, that is not where the money is. The money, the grants, the tenure, the access to billions in R&D equipment and leading edge technology is in the Big Bang theology. If you question the Church of Evolution and the virgin birth of the universe, you will not graduate, you will not be hired by a university or government institution, you will not be tenured and you will not be given grants for research. This bribery and system of ransom is called 'science'.
