God’s wisdom, personified, warns us, “[A]ll they that hate me love death” (Proverbs 8:36). I wish I could say we all listened.
The wisdom of this world is twaddle; and here are 26 minutes of it, spouted by a “space scientist” who comes at the question from a “hedonic utilitarian perspective.”
Ooh! That sounds smart! It wouldn’t have such a cool name if it wasn’t smart.
Even having to ask the question points to a bottomless moral imbecility–which describes very much of what the world today trots out as wisdom.
You don’t have to watch the whole thing. Why should you? On the same YouTube page are a host of videos by sophomoric “science” wallahs trying to give us the upside of human extinction. Remember Prince Philip saying he wished he could be reincarnated as some kind of plague?
We can laugh at them; but I think the point is why is anyone at all saying these things? Humanism at the best of times is anti-human; it makes a virtue of misanthropy. We should know that this darkness is out there and believed by persons who haven’t gotten around to acting on it.
It doesn’t have to be a giant comet slamming into the earth. Just abort all the babies, or succeed in selling “transgender” to a point where everybody buys it, and you’ll have all the extinction you can handle. To say nothing of what might happen if the scheme for “vaccinating” everybody in the world doesn’t turn out so good, after all.
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6: 12). This is what we are up against, and we’d better not forget it.
But our Redeemer is mighty; trust in Him.
