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.
If you ever thought you could study archaeology without being nagged about a lot of Far Left twaddle, you thought wrong. Nowadays archaeology is all about Saving The Planet and reining in White Supremacy. (Barf bag, please.)
In fact, you can’t study anything today without having PC palaver rammed down your throat. And it’s all gibberish, they make it up as they go along. (Done any othering lately? How ’bout that intersectionality? Blah! Blah!)
The original Tower of Babel judgment, in which God confounded human language, was a sovereign act of grace and mercy that protected us from world government.
Today humanists confound the language in an effort to set up world government–with themselves in charge of it, of course.
Humanists have always promised us Utopia, to be brought about by “using technology wisely” (like we ever did that!)–a world free of war, poverty, disease, etc., etc., all brought to you by Science and Government, their two great gods.
They have already proposed, and in some places actually enacted, various schemes designed to trap us in a perfect world.
The round-the-clock spying that constitutes China’s “social credit system.”
More and more lockdowns, to protect us from germs. We can have our freedom back as soon as there are no more germs.
The UK proposes to track everybody’s grocery purchases and “reward” those who make “healthier” choices. The announced objective is to “change behavior.”
Once upon a time in Canada, someone with the Ontario “Human Rights” Commission suggested that the government should decide whom your friends are–’cause if they leave it up to you, your circle of friends won’t be “diverse” enough.
And lots and lots and lots of new taxes. Michael Bloomberg says taxes are a great way to change people’s behavior.
Wow. It’s like being three years old again. You aren’t responsible for anything! Who but Science and Government should make all your decisions? ‘Cause they always get it right, don’t they?
And this time they promise there won’t be any of that nasty stuff like gulags, firing squads, and concentration camps unless you really need them, like the Uighurs in China apparently do.
Did I mention forced vaccines?
They have no king but Caesar–which is to say, themselves.
We have no king but Jesus Christ.
And it’s war. No shooting yet, but it’s war. Winner take all.
Like sharks care what you call them. Like it’ll hurt their feelings.
These particular experts are in Australia, a country well known for shark attacks. But really it was just some innocent big fish taking an innocent bite out of someone’s leg, just to see what it’d taste like.
The truth is that the waters around our beaches are full of sharks, pretty much all the time, and occasionally a shark bites somebody… or takes several bites, and kills the swimmer. This is what sharks do. They are predators. It’s how they live.
There’s no point in being mad at sharks, hating them, declaring war on them, or being so afraid of sharks that you won’t step into your bathtub. But there’s no point in trying to depict them as a lot of cozy-cuddles, either.
Then again, we live in a time when people can get arrested for using the wrong pronoun, or trolled on the social media for wearing a Chinese-style prom gown.
Again I say it: there’s no one as anti-human as a humanist.
Wait a minute! BLM–does that stand for Bureau of Land Management, or Black Lives Matter? Does Biden understand the difference? Whom does he think he’s appointing to what? Somebody needs to check this out.
Meanwhile, what conceivable excuse could any Republican senator have for voting to confirm anyone nominated by this regime for any position? Why would these senators confirm any appointment by Mr. Senile? Dudes, this is simple–just say “No!”
Unless, of course, you believe that this old crock who spent the whole campaign hiding in his cellar really honest truly got more votes than any other presidential candidate ever and the whole election was like ultra-pristine and fair and honest–
If you believe that, you can vote with a good conscience, or with no conscience at all, to confirm another Far Left loon to a high position in the government.
Better confirm her to head both BLMs until we can sort out what The Big Guy wants.
How many undocumented Guatemalan “asylum seekers” did she expect to find on a western Canadian junior hockey team bus? Has “race” eaten up their minds? And what on earth would they ever do with themselves if they didn’t have “racism” to obsess over?
And now they own our government. Doesn’t matter that they stole it. Now they own it.
