Holy moly, it’s not Saturday–it’s Thursday! What with all those doctor visits, and then me crashing and burning yesterday with allergies, I went to bed last night feeling like it had already been Friday. Anyway, it’s time for Newswithviews.

C.S. Lewis Nailed It

If you haven’t yet read That Hideous Strength by C.S. Lewis, you ought to go ahead and read it now. You’ll be amazed by how clearly he was able to see our own problems of 2019 when he wrote the book in 1943. It’s the third book of a trilogy, but I’ve never had a problem with reading it on its own.

For liberalism, leftism, call it what you will, is a satanic project aimed at un-creating God’s creation.

That’s why they have to be defeated.


Their Own Reality

Reader “Re-Farmer” hit the nail right on the head yesterday, when she commented on the “cultural psychopathy” of liberals. See her full comment under the post, “Yet Another Censorship Tactic.”

“Their alternate reality is whatever they believe it is,” she said. Bull’s eye. And that’s the whole thing in a nutshell. They have their own reality, and anyone who doesn’t embrace it as reality must be an enemy, and worthy of destruction.

A lot of people now consider leftism to be a mental illness. Like, if you have your own reality that’s different from the real reality, that does mean you’re crazy–right? When a man says, “I am a woman”; when a Democrat says “Donald Trump is trying to install a white supremacist government”; when Elizabeth Warren says, “I am a Native American”; when a liberal insists that any disagreement with his point of view constitutes violence, or criminal assault–well, those are all loopy things to say, and leftids say them all the time.

Try an experiment. Sign up one or two libs as Facebook friends and watch what they do to your page. Go ahead, try it.

But it’s more than just plain mental illness. Much more. I have come to believe that leftism is a truly satanic enterprise. What, after all, did the serpent say to tempt Eve in the garden? “Ye shall not surely die; for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” (Genesis 3:4-5) And down the hatch went the forbidden fruit, and into the world came sin and death.

Well, you can hardly be more like a god than by defining reality, can you? If you say someone is a racist, poof–! He’s a racist. If you say Trump is operating a network of concentration camps and carrying out ethnic cleansing–presto! It is so. And anyone who won’t go along, word for word and letter for letter, with every single thing you say–well, he must be a biggit!

As C.S. Lewis warned us in That Hideous Strength, the ultimate goal of the satanic enterprise is the total erasure of life on earth–of God’s creation. That is the natural end of leftism.

And just because they’re too full of themselves to know or understand what they’re working for, doesn’t mean it isn’t so.


Climbit Change Mob Takes Aim at… Babies

You selfish and immoral people! Given the grim seriousness of Climbit Change, how dare you have a baby? You carbon footprint, you! Gyaaaaah….! [Collapses with pink foam oozing from ears. Funny: we thought that space in there was vacant.]

Yes, now the Climbit Change wackos have got a Big Professor of Bioethics to do their shouting for them, and he’s got his knickers in a twist over “the moral aspect”–like any of these guys would recognize morality if it bit ’em in the ass–of having babies in this age of we’re-all-gonna-die Global Warming blah-blah (https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2017/11/17/bioethicist-opinion-science-proves-kids-are-bad-for-earth-morality-suggests-we-stop-having-them/). ‘Cause, ya see, children contribute to Climbit Change.

He doesn’t quite come out and say, like, immediately completely stop having babies waddayou, crazy–! He just wants us to have a lot fewer offspring. Does that mean he wants us to go extinct slowly, instead of in just another generation? He actually likens having a child to releasing a murderer from prison, “knowing he will kill again.” Liberals do that all the time, of course, and it doesn’t bother them a bit. They like murderers. Murder reduces that ol’ carbon footprint. Anyway, says the Big Professor, stop having those confounded  babies!

Where was this great advice when his mother needed it?

In his novel, That Hideous Strength, C.S. Lewis described an all-powerful scientific consortium whose ultimate goal is to scour the planet clean of life, so it will be “pure.” Their scheme is inspired by Satan. C.S. Lewis never heard of George Soros.

Anyway, did he hit the nail right on the head, or what?

The Humanist Messiah

When you take over God’s job, you have no end of problems.

Take that business about being the Creator. It’s maddening. All you’ve got to work with is stuff God already created. Even the minds of secular humanists were created by God. We do not know why He didn’t make them better at using them.

God created man, so humanists want to create something better. Their creation, their Homo sapiens 2.0, will be new, improved, far superior to the current version. It will be able to solve all the world’s problems that have licked us so far–war, poverty, hate, and getting blackberry seeds stuck between your teeth.

This is the humanist messiah. Artificial Intelligence. Flawed, sinful, mortal man will, with his own intelligence that has given us movies like Gigli and foreign policies that look like they were dreamed up by Punch and Judy, create intelligent beings that’ll be much smarter and much better behaved than their creators.

Yes, there are a few scientists who’ve been trying to warn us that the A.I. enterprise is bound to turn out like Windows 8–not quite as nice as you expected. But because there is no one as anti-human as a humanist, the God wannabes seem eager to scrap H. sapiens 1.0 altogether, just plain get rid of us, with all our stupid problems, and replace us with their own creation. “It’ll be sooo much better! You’ll see!” Although how we’ll actually be able to see it from the boneyard, they don’t say.

C.S. Lewis already told us all about this, way back in 1945, in That Hideous Strength.

We already have a God, a Creator and a Savior, and He has equipped us with enough common sense to see that something perfect cannot and will not be created by imperfect beings. But it was Satan who told us that it can–way back in the beginning (see Genesis 3).

And it is Satan who’s the god of humanism.
