‘Irrational Humanism’ Explained

See the source image

I’ve been waiting eagerly to share this with you!

https://chalcedon.edu/resources/articles/irrational-humanism-the-reasoned-application-of-a-false-worldview

Why is the Far Left Crazy so crazy? Why are we confronted with so much sheer loopiness–“transgender,” “open borders,” “everything is racist,” and so on, endlessly–which, far from landing its proponents in the madhouse where they belong, are offered to us as genuine public policy options? Options that we’d seize in a New York minute, if we weren’t racists and biggits etc.

Mark Rushdoony explains it clearly and convincingly. It’s their ideology that makes them so patently irrational. In their Darwin-inspired world view, chaos and revolution equal “progress,” and it’s always a good thing to tear down the old to make place for the new–never mind their relative merits, new is always better!

There is a method in their madness.

That’s why they must be utterly defeated. May God equip us for that righteous task!


Is Freedom Our Natural State?

See the source image

In a word, no. In a fallen world populated by sinners, where you can win applause by rejecting God, freedom is a plant very easily shriveled.

The Romans frittered away their republic and wound up with an emperor.

The English beheaded King Charles and wound up with a Parliament that assigns sovereign power to itself and ignores the result of a supposedly binding referendum because it didn’t like the way the people voted.

The French beheaded their king and wound up with first a lot of little creeps who were beheading everybody, and then Napoleon.

The Chinese tossed out their emperor and wound up with warlords, Mao, and the mob of tyrants who succeeded him.

In the 20th century, tyranny bloomed like kudzu. It would take up too much space just to list the perpetrators. there were so many tyrants in that century, you could have had them in a boxed set of bubble-gum cards.

Our own country’s founders tried their level best to avoid these errors and create for us a republic ruled not by tyrants, but by laws that were the same for all. A terrible civil war rid us of the curse of slavery. But as the Bible teaches us, if we won’t serve the true God, the only author of our liberties, we will surely wind up serving false ones.

All over the world today, freedom is under attack. Even here, we have elitists, we have Democrats, who believe in, and try their damnedest to create, a government colossus to rule over virtually everything–for our own good, of course, and with themselves doing the ruling. And because our education establishment is fully committed to that course, it trains young Americans to be ignorant of civics, ignorant of history, ignorant of God’s word, terrified of Global Warming and a host of other made-up boogeymen, and receptive to the idea of unlimited government.

By Almighty God’s decree, all of this is doomed to fail. He will not yield His place to a lot of grubby little puffed-up bugs who went to Harvard.

But it would be good for us, good beyond words, if we would only just stop voting for them.

 


Looking for Reasons to Kill You

See the source image

The British Medical Assn. has issued “guidelines”–hold on to your hats!–to relatives of seriously ill and non-communicating hospital patients, asking them to “trawl through” their loved one’s emails, Tweets, and Facebook postings to find “any indication that they may want to die” (https://www.wnd.com/2019/01/new-medical-warning-your-social-media-comments-could-get-you-killed/).

In 2017 they put a patient to death based on an email she sent her daughter in 2013. Recalling her father’s dementia, the woman told her daughter, “Get the pillow ready if I get that way.” Interpreting this as a green light, hospital authorities pulled the plug on life support and killed the patient.

One thing they’re not telling us is how far back they want patients’ kin to “trawl,” looking for some kind of “I wish I were dead” remark. Like, what did you say when no one asked you to the prom? When you peed your pants in kindergarten and all the other kids found out? When you lost your job at 40 and couldn’t find another?

Some of my readers believe there is a section of the world’s ruling class that seriously wants to depopulate the earth, and is taking steps toward that end. I’ve always resisted that suspicion, on the grounds that being a tyrant is no fun unless you’ve got a lot of people to pick on, the more the merrier.

But Satan would like to see us all dead, and God’s world a lifeless, blackened shell. And don’t waste your breath trying to tell me the Far Left Crazy isn’t satanist. Not to mention all those people who say they don’t believe in Satan, but serve him anyway.

Again we ask–can the human race survive humanism?

In Christ alone we can. And will.


My Newswithviews Column, Jan. 3 (‘Education Marches On… to Oblivion’)

The crops failed, but we’ve got gender equity!

More and more I wonder–can the human race survive humanism? Can any sane country survive what, ahem, “higher education” is doing to ours?

Just the waste of money and human resources alone might be enough to sink us.


Faith of the Faithless

Since I mentioned it in posting this morning’s hymn, I can’t stop thinking of something Charlton Heston’s astronaut character said in the original Planet of the Apes movie, in 1968. Soured on his own world, the astronaut has embarked on a one-way trip into the unknown because he’s sure that somewhere out there, “There must be something better!” Better than earth, he means.

Well, doesn’t that just speak volumes? Our whole benighted age in just five words!

But of course, what the oracles of this age say sounds completely different: “Sooner or later, we’ll have all the answers! Science will provide those answers. No more sickness, no more war, no more crime or poverty. Just give us the power, give us the money, obey us in all things–and the earthly paradise will be yours! Minus the heavenly paradise, though, because there’s no such thing…”

We have to listen a bit more carefully. What do they praise? Massive, all-powerful government. Homosexuality. Transgenderism. Sexual promiscuity. Abortion. Assisted suicide. “Open borders”–not that there’s ever been any such thing, but throughout history, the closer a country comes to it, the closer it comes to destruction.

Their earthly paradise is full of behaviors which, if pursued to their natural ends, result in death–even extinction, if everybody does what humanists say we ought to do.

So in their own way, they are proposing to leave the earth behind–if not by means of a starship, then by means of death. First everybody else’s; and then, like it or not, their own. All they that hate God’s wisdom love death (Proverbs 8:36).

But the earth is the Lord’s–and so are we. And so are we.


‘A Simple Formula for Tyranny’ (2014)

Civilizations rise and fall, but bad ideas go on forever.

If only our infallible Science could get together with an all-powerful government, we’d be living in a paradise!

Some really bad ideas just never dry up and blow away.

https://leeduigon.com/2014/03/22/a-simple-formula-for-tyranny/

It was twaddle in the 1840s, it killed off tens of millions of people in the 20th century, and it’s still floating around today. Only now they’re calling it “Democratic socialism.”

A lot of folks just never learn.


Drivel Alert: ‘Sex-bots Will Improve Marriage’

Image result for images of luna moth

This story is much too disgusting to illustrate. Here is a picture of a luna moth instead. God’s stuff is better than ours. Ours sucks.

Shakespeare thought of this first, when he had Lady Macbeth cry out, “Come, you spirits that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here…!”

Be careful what you wish for.

Just when you thought humanism couldn’t dehumanize us any further, along come the sex-bots–machines you can “have sex” with. But not to worry: an “expert” (oh, please) at the University of British Columbia says having sex with machines can make our marriages better (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-6060627/Sex-robots-IMPROVE-marriages-letting-spouses-focus-companionship-expert-claims.html).

See, if you get your jollies making whoopee with a glorified toaster-oven, that’ll give you and your spouse “more focus on companionship and creating a family.” She does not explain how you and your spouse will do that if you’re both having sex with machines instead of with each other.

Oh, but what’s not to like? This’ll “give couples greater opportunity to define their own type of marriages,” according to whatever addled pumpkin-guts you have in place of a brain. Why, it “could soon become a societal norm”! Oh, frabjous day. More societal norms that college doodlebugs make up as they go along.

Sophisticated sex-bots are bound to be expensive, so maybe for the time being you can make do with your printer or some other handy appliance–whatever floats your boat.

Are there really people out there who don’t understand that “sex” with a machine is only a simulation of sex?

I do hope not.


Baby Dies of Neglect: ‘Redirecting Care’

Alfie Evans, before they killed him

From the chamber of horrors that is our daily news cycle:

Baby Alfie Evans, 23 months old, after living four days without life support, died earlier today. Britain’s National Health authorities, backed up by the courts, refused to allow the child’s parents to care for him at home and refused offers by hospitals in Italy and Poland to take over the case. They even rebuffed an offer by the Pope.

Refusing to provide the dying infant with food or water for 28 hours after being taken off life support, a spokesman for the hospital called the deliberate neglect “redirecting care” (http://www.lifenews.com/2018/04/27/doctor-starving-alfie-evans-to-death-is-not-the-killing-of-a-child-its-just-redirecting-care/).

Is there a circle in Hell reserved for hypocrites? Can you think of a more offensive and wicked euphemism than “redirecting care”?

So it seems a child’s life, or anybody’s life, is the property of the state, to preserve or throw away as the “authorities” see fit. The victim’s family has no say.

Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin.

Come, Lord Jesus, come: before this world gets any worse.


Choose Your Favorite Embryo–and Dump the Rest

Image result for images of designer babies

Moral imbecility is a growth industry. Too bad you can’t buy stock.

A Stanford University law prof who doubles as a bioethics wallah predicts that within 20 to 40 years, sex will no longer be necessary for reproduction and that parents will be able to choose one or two embryos out of, say, 80: “Dozens of choices for which of your embryos should be placed in your womb to become your child” (https://www.yahoo.com/news/ethicist-foresees-choosing-baby-dozens-embryos-050710538.html).

What about the ones who aren’t chosen? Oh, well…

The idea seems to be to create a whole passel of embryos and pick the one you want. Predicts the prof, “The majority of babies who have good health coverage will be conceived this way.” His book is called The End of Sex and the Future of Human Reproduction.

No more sex? Oh, you’ll still be able to indulge in fornication. Indeed, says the prof, this technique would enable “same-sex couples” to have babies. Like, what more could anybody want?

Someday I fear a book will be written, While Christianity Slept. God grant I’m wrong.

 


Kids Too Weak to Grip Pencils?

See the source image

British pediatricians and school principals are saying the current crop of kindergarten kids are too weak to grip a pencil, thanks to their spending most of their time as “the touchscreen generation” (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5435015/Touchscreen-happy-children-weak-hold-pencil.html).

They claim 58%–yeah, 58%–of children under two years old have already gotten into iPads and smartphones: and that their hand muscles, unable to develop normally, are weak. Too weak to wield a pencil. And they lack the motor skills needed if they’re going to learn how to write or draw. The tots don’t play with crayons, paintbrushes, scissors anymore. Just touchscreens. They aren’t playing with Play-Doh, either: but that comes later, in college.

I just had a horrible thought! What happens when these kids grow up and go to college, and they’re too weak and clumsy to play with Play-Doh?

Aw, well, motor skills, schmotor skills, who needs ’em? Bots are gonna do all the work, anyhow, and all the thinking, too.

I was born into a world of men and women. Real Smart People are destroying it.

Come, Lord Jesus, come.
