Citing recent polls, Dr. Peter Jones observes that most young people “have graded Christianity, and so far, the grades aren’t looking good.” Young believers do not want the name “Christian” because of “the baggage that accompanies the label."
The most ethical, humane movement in two thousand years of Western history is now covered in abject shame and main-line churches, faced with a dramatic loss of members and funds, have undertaken,
“...a great experiment to redefine [themselves] through an intense engagement with the surrounding secular world…to blur the boundaries between religion and the broader society.” (Culture Warts or Faithful Servants,” Part 1, Dr. Peter Jones, Sept. 12, 2012, truthXchange.com)
According to Jones, Christianity is now despised because influential segments of the culture have converted,
“...in one form or another to religious paganism and have thus abandoned the fundamental worldview notions of orthodox Christianity.”
It is true that vast segments of American culture---especially the ruling class within and without the church--- have converted to religious paganism, it is Trans-Humanism's Science 'god,' Evolution 'god,' and idolatry that set the stage as long ago as 1850.
Trans-humanism may be traced to progressive social engineers of the twentieth century who played God by applying Darwinian science to improve mankind. Using Darwinian principles to socially engineer a new man is based on the proposition that since man has evolved over millions of years from a sub-human past then logically he will evolve over time into something better or “post human.” Furthermore, advanced men can scientifically engineer our evolution:
"Transhumanism is the ultimate goal of Technocracy … a meta-movement: the idea that the works of Man’s hands can save Humanity—hence, technology and science forms the basis of a Technocratic society. Transhumanism takes this to its ultimate conclusion: The development of the post-human or neo-human.
"Based on the premise that evolution is true, Transhumanism looks to shape the human species through the direct application of science. In other words, by employing technology we can take hold of the evolutionary process and change it as we desire, thus becoming the masters of our future. To this end, advocates of Transhumanism ascribe to a multitude of possible options.” (The Rise of Techno-Gods: The Merging of Transhumanism and Spirituality By Carl Teichrib, Forcing Change, Volume 4, Issue 10, Oct. 2010, p. 2)
Trans-Humanism is utterly dependent upon the absolute supremacy of Science for its scientistic worldview:
"Scientism rejects all philosophical, religious, and metaphysical claims to understand reality, since the truth it portends cannot be validated by the Scientific Method. Thus, science is the absolute and only access to truth and reality." (Technocracy Rising, p. 12)
Dr. Martin Erdmann, who was a Senior Scientist at the University Hospital in Basel, Switzerland, researching the ethical implications of Nanotechnology and Transhumanism, explains this movement:
"Transhumanist philosophy promotes the idea of human enhancement by technological means. In its extremes, futuristic concepts like intelligence enhancement (up to “superintelligence”) using techniques like genetic engineering, psychopharmacology, anti-aging therapies, neural interfaces, wearable/implantable computers, long-lasting internal organ replacement, mental uploading and so forth are propagated from prominent positions like the US Nanotechnology Initiative and the Oxford University philosophy department. Today, the Oxonian don Nick Bostrom, the co-founder of the World Transhumanist Association, advocates the “possibility” and even “desirability” of developing technology for the purpose of seeking immortality and improving current mortal existence by enhancing “intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities”. In order to make these revolutionary alterations, essentially mechanizing the human species, transhumanists urge the human race to seize control of its destiny, casting off the restrictive and pernicious dogmas of bygone eras, as they see it. It is “a way of thinking about the future that is based on the premise that the human species in its current form does not represent the end of our development but rather a comparatively early phase.” (Trans-humanism: The New Alchemy, Christian Observer)
Trans-humanism's way of thinking is grounded in a Gnostic pagan inverted exegesis that places the genesis of everything at the bottom, starting perhaps from a movement, and then miraculously evolving upward by its own amazing powers. This anti-creation account affirms on one hand that living beings evolved themselves and on the other that their spirits are free, meaning untouched by the Holy Triune Creator, the evil demiurge responsible for trapping free spirits in evil matter. Hence Trans-humanism's desire to get rid of their material bodies by merging them with machines:
..inserting technology into human brains is not the only thing going on. Some scientists also want to insert human brains into technology" ("Hitler would have loved The Singularity: Mind-blowing benefits of merging humman brains and computers," Ian Morris, 6 February 2012, dailymail.co.uk)
Trans-humanism is a dualistic neo-Gnostic religiously pagan worldview that, like its ancient pagan counterparts, views the material realm and material bodies as hell.
This view is why a number of physicists and Oxford University philosopher Nick Bostrom, one of the founders of the World Transhumanist Association, put forward a 'scientific' theory that the world we live in a computer simulation in the minds of Robotic Overlords who are using humanity as playthings. Within this context, the Holy Trinity is the expression of an ego-driven consciousness– a projection of artificial intelligence that entrapped humanity through deceit and parasitism in a simulated world of matter to prevent human beings from remembering that they are divine spirits whose real home is the Cosmic Mind or Gnostic Pleroma.
In "The Pagan Temptation," Dr. Molnar writes that from Plato to Plotinus it was held as axiomatic that the fall was not of man into sin but of divine sparks into the material realm. The fall was either inexplicable or explained as punishment in an earthly hell. At any rate it was a plunge from being as one with or an aspect of the monistic Ultimate Reality into the multiple, or binary. Binary means for example that before the fall good and evil were not distinct one from the other and there had not been two sexes but just one transgender being. After the fall, good and evil are opposites and there are two distinct sexes. This being the case, the revolutionary impact of Christian teaching about the two dimensions (supernatural and the natural dimensions), the Incarnation, Resurrection, the fall of man, the two created sexes, the Ten Commandments and Gospel of salvation was nothing less than a scandal to ancient pagan thinkers and completely unacceptable to their modern counterparts. Thus the modern neo-Gnostic Karl Marx declares:
“The idea of God is the keynote of a perverted civilization. It must be destroyed.” (Karl Marx, Marx and Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 59)
The Genesis account of creation ex nihilo is repugnant because if true means that matter is not evil because it is of God’s creation, therefore it does not pre-exist creation or come into existence by way of a Big Bang.
The Incarnation was also utterly repulsive to ancient pagans since for the Ultimate Reality to incarnate within an evil body was as unthinkable as it is for contemporary neo-Gnostic Trans-humanists who view the body as an evil meat machine, In “Against the Christians” (frag. 77) Porphyry, disciple of Plotinus and Arnobius, writes:
“How can one admit that the divine should become an embryo, that after his birth he is put in swaddling clothes, that he is soiled with blood and bile, and worse things yet?” (The Pagan Temptation, Thomas Molnar, p. 27)
All of this is behind Trans-humanism's ferocious rejection of Jesus Christ which by implication denies that there ever was a creation ex nihilo or real personal Creator. But the Word is also the “true witness” and the “Amen,” and such denials will only be “unto their own destruction” (2 Peter 3:16)
Trans-humanism is a blend of revitalized Gnostic pagan and Eastern occult pantheist elements and magic science undergirded by a strong Darwinian impulse. Thus it subscribes to the modern myth of a coming Superman that is actually a counterfeit of the Christian vision of a new and perfected human race spiritually and physically transformed by the redemptive activity of the Holy Triune God. The counterfeit is an uncreated product of progressive evolution issuing in an upward spiritual and physical transformation toward ultimate absorption into a Divine One Substance – a Cosmic Mind, Conscious Universe, the One, or perhaps Brahman.
Throughout the contemporary West and America Technocratic Trans-humanism's Science 'god' with its exalted priesthood of scientists and social engineers is the only allowable source of truth about universal reality (Singularity, Quantum Void or energy field), earth (Gaia), what makes Gaia ill (too many people), and the nature of the ape-man of evolution, (1) making Trans-humanism's "gods" and idolatry the West's three most powerful fortresses of mind:
“The doctrine of God the Creator is vivid throughout the pages of Scripture. The gods of the nations are not creator gods and (as) Jeremiah puts it, the gods that did not create the world will perish, as indeed they have. In our own times idolatry, which was a universal substitute for the Creator God, has been replaced by the widely held theory of evolution. Both are substitutes for the concept of the Creator God. Just as the ancients and the heathen today deified and worshipped the creature as the creator, modeling images of man or birds or animals or reptiles and worshipping these, so for western secular man the modern theory of evolution deifies nature, and acknowledges it as creator of all we see around us…and in this way the God who made the world is as effectively shut out of the minds of those who are enjoying the blessings of His creation as He was by the false religions of idolatry. Just as the idolators could not see the foolishness, indeed the stupidity, of worshipping gods of wood and stone, which have no life nor purpose nor mind, so modern believers in the theory of evolution cannot see the foolishness of that theory. The Bible says that if we refuse to have the Creator God in our mind, God gives us up to a reprobate mind.” (Dr. Broughton Knox, principal of Moore Theological College, Sydney, 1959-1985, Creation Ministries International)
Trans-Humanism and Babylon
Trans-Humanism's conception of ultimate reality is philosophically monistic. Monism is the view that ultimate reality is a unified whole (i.e. energy field; pleroma) and that all existing things can be described by a single system since mind and matter are formed from and reducible to the unified whole, meaning 'god' (the energy field) is within the brains of the enlightened, most highly evolved. With Darwinism for instance, God, mind, and spirit are reducible to the ultimate reality, thus ultimate reality (divine energy) is within the neural complexity of the brain, meaning that divine consciousness (God reduced to psychic energy) operates within the neural complexity of man’s brain. So God is within the brain of man. This way of thinking is In direct contrast to the Biblical teaching that though men are made in the spiritual image of God they do not partake of God’s being or one substance identified as ultimate reality (Gen. 1:27),
Monism and evolution are primary doctrines of the Mesopotamian occult worldview of the serpent which gave birth to all of the nation's ancient and modern mystery religions. Babylon's monism and evolution underlie modern Trans-humanism and its twin...occult New Age spirituality, a kind of Cosmic Trans-humanism anchored in Hinduism and Buddhism. This is why Trans-Humanism's 'gods' are worthless man-centered, man-controlled idols that can neither account for life and conscious life, nor create, speak, or move (Psalm 115:5). They are the useless "gods" of an utterly nihilistic, entirely bankrupt, national Trans-Humanist religion and reigning superstition and madness producing factory of the once-Christian West and America.
Trans-Humanism then, is an ancient pagan and mystical pantheist creed. Its evolutionary cosmology dates back to Mesopotamia and its materialistic roots,
"....go back to at least fifth century B.C. to the Greek philosopher Protagoras who said, 'Man is the measure of all things.' During the period of the Enlightenment, philosophers such as Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778), Immanuel Kant (1724-1804), Georg Hegel (1770-1831) and slightly later Karl Marx (1818-1883), developed humanistic doctrines that have worked their way into the 20th century in the form of Humanism, Marxism, Socialism, Communism, Collectivism and Rationalism." (Global Religion For Global Governance, Patrick Wood, technocracy.news)
Marxist Communism is a humanistic doctrine. In a probing analysis of Marxist Communism, early conservative intellectual Frank Meyer described it as the state form taken by a materialist pagan faith,
"...determined to rule the world." Communism is the "final synthesis of all heretical tendencies that have pervaded Western civilization for many centuries." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement, pp. 251-252)
All forms of Humanism are promulgated by contemporary Western heirs of a rebellion against our Heavenly Father that emerged out of the Renaissance giving birth to an occult intelligentsia, open intercourse with spirits, astral plane travels, totalitarian aspirations, subjectivism (moral relativism), and Illuminism, a teaching of ancient mystery religions that holds that man,
"...can evolve, through initiatory steps, into a god state himself." (New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies," William Still, p. 27)
Today, Trans-Humanism is the foundational and all-controlling thought-system dominating all of modern Western and American culture. Together with its' two 'gods' it is taken for granted throughout the college curriculum. It influences biological and earth sciences, psychology, anthropology, sociology, economics, law, the media, arts, medicine, and all other academic disciplines. And thanks to compromising Christian intellectuals, theologians and seminarians, for over one hundred years it has been moving into and subsequently paganizing the Christian church over and across the entire denominational spectrum.

"And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;" Romans 1:28 KJB
By reducing the physical world to unreality and setting all things in motion neo-Gnostic Trans-Humanism's substitute "gods" unleash a relentless, random process over time leading to fundamental and destructive changes to Western and American culture, law, national sovereignty, the family, tradition, and the Christian conception of man as person. With the material realm reduced to unreality and man to an aspect of evolutionary energy there is no longer one human race consisting of two created sexes but an evolving holonarchy of multiple and ever-evolving races and ‘gender expressions' with the most highly evolved race claiming superman (Trans Humanism) and god-man status (Cosmic Humanism). Thus in Trans-Humanism's utopian (nowhere land) New Age:
"Man no longer has a place, not merely in the theoretical sense that all hierarchic orders have disappeared in a collectivist society of mass men, but in the more profound sense that the universe of relativity physics has abolished the concept and the very reality of place itself. Man will continue to exist in the new world, but his existence will be condemned to rootlessness; he will be, but he will be nowhere. Nor will man find God within this new world. God is, but He will be nowhere." (Frederick D. Wilhelmsen, Introduction , p. XV, "The End of the Modern World, Romano Guardini)
"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, (the evolution 'god' and idolatry) following the tradition of men according to the rudiments of the world, and not in accordance with Christ.” Colossians 2:8
In an important essay, “Why Christianity Lost America?” Vishal Mangalwadi, author of “The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization,” convincingly argues that,
“Christianity lost America because 20th-century evangelicalism branded itself as the party of faith. Secularism (Humanism, science, university, media) became the party of truth. This is one reason why 70% Christian youth give up meaningful involvement with the church when they grow up.” (December 10, 2011 by Vishal Mangalwadi, revelationmovement.com)
In other words, psychologically manipulated, battered, and terrified Christians have bought into a Big Lie that defines Trans-Humanism's substitute 'gods' and idolatry as “factual” empirical science, therefore the only source of truth. Thus if Humanism's 'gods' and idolatry are facts of 'science,' then the personal Creator God and Genesis account are not true, so why bother with Christian theism if it has been scientifically invalidated?
The origins of our contemporary paganized culture plunge deep into idolatry, nihilism, madness, paganism, the spiritually pantheist occult, and evil while its future projects,
“... include the silencing of Two-ist Christianity altogether. It can only be countered by courageous Christian believers from this rising generation who are willing to engage the revolutionary intellectual “strongholds,” the “arguments and “lofty opinions raised against the knowledge of God,” in order to “take every thought captive to obey Christ…” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5) with “transformed minds” (Romans 12:2) by understanding and imitating “the mind of Christ” (1 Corinthians 2:16). Just do it!” (Ibid, Jones)
