Science pretends to be God

What is the difference between trusting science and trusting God? Doesn’t God use science to save us from disease? The difference is that we trust God even if He does not save us from disease.

Job 13:15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him:

This cartoon has many problems; mainly, that the “God” that is speaking is more like “science” than the God of the Bible.

Much of the opposition to the Biblical account of creation is due to a deeply ingrained worship of science in modern society as able to discover the mysteries of the universe. The popular conception of the universe is due to the appeal of science fiction, and the mental exercise of imagining the expansion of the human spirit into space, and church people fall for it and use the excuse of “seeing the glory of God in the stars.”

But science fiction is fiction. It is fully compatible with atheism, and is exciting to the fallen human spirit because it is an escape from the constraints imposed by God in the Bible. Science fiction is worship of a different god, and it lets us know why the Israelites had so much trouble doing what God said, and instead following the gods of the Canaanites. It’s just plain fun for the mind not renewed by the Bible.

Quantum reality

Rick Delano, with Robert Sungenis, also produced the movie “The Principle” which was about the problems with the Copernican Principle. He was my Facebook friend at one time. He blocked me when I asked him to stop saying that the Roman Catholic Church was right to have burned John Huss at the stake. He has a new movie about the crisis in modern physics.

SYNOPSIS

Almost one hundred years ago, the project to reduce the world to mathematical physics failed suddenly and completely: “One of the best-kept secrets of science,” physicist Nick Herbert writes, “is that physicists have lost their grip on reality.” The world, we are now told, emerges spontaneously, out of “nothing,” and constitutes a “multiverse,” where “anything that can happen will happen, and it will happen an infinite number of times.”

Legendary reclusive genius Wolfgang Smith demonstrates on shockingly obvious grounds the dead end at which physics has arrived, and how we can “return, at last, to the real world.”

The End of Quantum Reality introduces this extraordinary man to a contemporary audience which has, perhaps, never encountered a true philos-sophia, one as intimately at ease with the rigors of quantum physics as with the greatest schools of human wisdom.

“Wolfgang Smith broaches a vast range of subjects with a mastery that bespeaks an immense culture… It would be hard to exaggerate the importance of [his] work.”
— Jean Borella, ​​​​​​​Professor of Philosophy, ​​​​​​​University of Nancy, France
“Here is that rare person who is equally at home with Eckhart and Einstein, Heraclitus and Heisenberg!”
— Harry Oldmeadow, ​​​​​​​Professor of Philosophy, ​​​​​​​La Trobe University, Australia
“Wolfgang Smith is as important a thinker as our times boast.”
— Huston Smith, Professor of Philosophy, M.I.T., and author of The World’s Religions

//… Inner Explorations: Tell us what motivated you to write on philosophical subjects.

Wolfgang Smith: More than anything else, it was the recognition that science is a doubled-edged sword. On the one hand there is scientific truth, a bona fide knowledge of a special kind; but that knowledge is accompanied in practice by a syndrome of philosophic assumptions which are generally mistaken for scientific truths. It became clear to me, moreover, in light of the metaphysical traditions, that these scientistic beliefs (as I call them) tend to be spurious, and deleterious to our spiritual well-being. I became convinced, in fact, that the spiritual and moral decline of modern civilization–our estrangement from spiritual reality–is due in no small measure to the scientistic world-view which has been foisted upon us in the name of science. I therefore made it my business to detect and expose the principal scientistic dogmas affecting contemporary civilization.

IE: Can you give an example of a prominent scientistic belief?

WS: As a major example I would mention the Darwinian theory of evolution, which (contrary to official belief) is not in fact a scientific hypothesis corroborated by empirical facts, but a philosophic tenet masquerading in scientific garb. As one molecular biologist has put it, Darwinism is ultimately “no more and no less than the great cosmogenetic myth of the twentieth century.” The genre of scientistic myth, however, is not limited to the sphere of biology; it is to be found even in the physical domain. When it comes to psychology and the social sciences, moreover, it appears that myth actually predominates. I have explained and documented these contentions in my first book….//

 

Astrobiology docudrama

Some astrobiologists will be interested in the new History Channel series “The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch.” I have to admit it has me hooked. It is good as entertainment, but I am worried that it may turn out to be as much of a hoax as Animal Planet’s “Mermaids” series was a few years ago. I can’t find any disclaimers about it that it is for entertainment purposes only, but there may be one later.

April Fool Joke

By their own free will, the leaders of our local church, affiliated with the Southern Batist Convention, have declared their church irrelevant. They have been tricked into agreeing to shut down at least until Wednesday service on April 1, which is very appropriate, because a very smart influence, which we could call Bigfoot, has played a really good April Fool joke on them. They have admitted to society that attendance at their church is not as important as shopping at Walmart, which continues to be open and available. 

I am horrified at this. They are actively imposing a shutdown on the members, as if the church itself were under their control, not that of God. They argue that practical considerations override the need for meeting in worship. There were no doubt practical considerations that the martyrs of the church should have taken into account, using the same reasoning. They should have denied Christ, and lived. God help us all.

No doubt they will practice social distancing on me for having pointed this out to them, but they are free to do so.

The pastor tells me I am being “divisive.” I believe that this means that my viewpoint, and consequently  I myself, will be no longer welcome at his church, since I know he uses the ESV:

Titus 3:10–As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him. [The ESV® Bible (The Holy Bible, English Standard Version®) is adapted from the Revised Standard Version of the Bible, copyright Division of Christian Education of the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the U.S.A. All rights reserved.]

He has an excuse for the mistake he is making, in that the ESV tells us to have nothing to do with Jesus.

In the ESV, Jesus says: 

Luke 12:51 — Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. (ESV)

Then it uses the exact same word to tell us to have nothing to do with such people.

Titus 3:10,11 — As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him, knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned. (ESV)

Computing ghosts

This guide in the Superstition Mountains says that computers were created to allow contact with the “other side,” that is, the paranormal. If so, then it seems to me one would be contacting the gods that ancient people worshipped, or what modern people think of as “ET aliens.” Computers may very well be portals through which spiritual beings influence humanity, and can ultimately manifest themselves in physical form if the humans do the right things to help them.

Real Giants

This photo above is the only part of the giant ape that the scientific community calls Gigantopithecus that has been found, except scattered teeth. It looks rather human, don’t you think? Maybe they just don’t recognize that they have the jawbone of a real giant? The photo is from the History Channel.

Gorilla jaw

This is a gorilla jawbone. Note the large canines not found in the Giganto jaw. I understand they have never been able to get DNA from a Giganto bone or tooth. But if they got human DNA from it, they would just think it was contamination, and not report it. So that would be consistent with at least some of these bones and teeth being from giant humans.

Science as dogmatic religion

Facebook censors don’t want anyone reading this paper about low cloud cover and its effect on temperature, questioning the current man-caused climate change dogma. They are trying to intimidate admins into not posting it by threatening to downlist any group that posts it. This is the same thing as the Roman Catholic Church trying to stamp out opposition to the dogma of the Magisterium in the dark ages before the Reformation.

I observe that many people are not sure about what they believe, and consequently have to push their beliefs on others by force, in order to make the unsure person feel better about his belief. Rational discussion is the enemy of such people.

Notice from Facebook:
“Partly False Information Found in Creationist Particle Physics

“Ed Garrett shared information that’s been reviewed by TjekDet and Science Feedback. We’ve added a notice to the post so others can see that it’s partly false. Learn More about how fact-checking works on Facebook.

“To fight false news, Facebook pushes misleading content farther down in News Feed and provides additional articles on the same topic.

“If a group repeatedly shares false news, Facebook may push all of that group’s content down in News Feed, which may mean fewer people visit the group. Facebook may also stop suggesting that people join the group.”

From the paper:
Abstract. In this paper we will prove that GCM-models used in IPCC report AR5 fail to calculate the influences of the low cloud cover changes on the global temperature. That is why those models give a very small natural temperature change leaving a very large change for the contribution of the green house gases in the observed temperature. This is the reason why IPCC has to use a very large sensitivity to compensate a too small natural component. Further they have to leave out the strong negative feedback due to the clouds in order to magnify the sensitivity. In addition, this paper proves that the changes in the low cloud cover fraction practically control the global temperature.

Bigfoot as a forest spirit

A quote from the website below--

// If Sasquatch is some type of ghost or spirit entity it sure would explain a lot. We wouldn’t expect to find a living specimen, or a body, bones or even a fossil record. Ghostly calls in the night would be par for the course we would think, and even footprints left behind and tossed rocks and sticks aren’t outside of the norm for the standard supernatural apparition.

More than anything, it would explain why sightings are so fleeting, and why, even with the woods crawling with people (some of them looking for him), Bigfoot has never been properly documented.

It’s because he isn’t really there. At least not in the way we’re used to thinking.

Native American legends are often cited as proof that Sasquatch exists in North America. After all, if people have been seeing him for thousands of years, he must really be out there. But many indigenous Bigfoot legends mix the spiritual world with the biological world, and accounts of Bigfoot with shape-shifting abilities, or the powers of invisibility, are not uncommon.//
