In his book, “Miracles,” C.S. Lewis argued that the birth of modern science depended on the Biblical view of Jehovah God as Creator:
“Men became scientific because they expected Law in Nature, and they expected Law in Nature because they believed in a Legislator.” (The Magician’s Twin, edited by John G. West, p. 21)
In the 1828 edition of Noah Webster’s “American Dictionary of the English Language,” Webster tells us that the word ‘science’ comes from Latin for scientia, which simply means to know. In the general sense of the word, science is the comprehension of truth or facts by the mind (soul/spirit). In philosophy, science is a collection of the general principles or leading truths relating to any subject. The term science is also applied, as in mathematics, to self-evident truths, or in metaphysics to generally acknowledged truths, or on experiment and observation as in chemistry. There is also the science of art, writing, and cooking.
Lewis admired modern science but warned against its perverted twin, amoral scientism, or natural science and evolution. Lewis believed that Darwin’s philosophically materialist theory provided potent fuel for twisting and perverting modern science into natural science whose real purpose was to shut Jehovah God out, thus enclosing mankind inside hermetically sealed nature.
In the foreword to “The Magician’s Twin,” Phillip E. Johnson accurately describes Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, and Sigmund Freud as early 20th century wizards whose neo-pagan materialist concepts were so spellbinding,
“….that they set the intellectual agenda for the entire twentieth century.” Johnson adds to the list of scientific magicians the “DNA is everything’ biologists, including the brilliant popularize Richard Dawkins and the physicalist neuroscientists who assure us that our thoughts and decisions (including the thoughts of neuroscientists?) are no more than the effects of electro-chemical events in the brain.” (The Magician’s Twin, pp.9-10)
Shortly after Lewis had become a Christian he wrote “The Pilgrim’s Regress” (1933), an autobiographical allegory of his intellectual and spiritual journey toward Jesus Christ. The philosophically materialist Sigmund Freud appears in the book as Sigismund Enlightenment who shares a dungeon cell with Lewis’s main character John after he has been arrested. The dungeon is overseen by a Giant known as the Spirit of the Age who makes people transparent just by looking at them. As a result, wherever John looks he sees through his fellow prisoners into their insides. And when John looks at himself he is horrified to observe the inner workings of his own body. After days of such torment John cries out in despair,
“I am mad. I am dead. I am in hell forever.” (ibid, pp. 25-26)
The Giant is the evil Luciferian spirit of nihilism (nothingness) working through devilish materialist magicians or wizards and the dungeon is the hell of materialistic reductionism (methodological naturalism) that in the name of modern natural science has isolated the Holy God in the supernatural realm and uncreated Imago Dei by reducing soul to body (DNA) , spirit (mind) to grey matter, and abilities of mind (thought, will, conscience) to movement of chemicals and firing of neurons. The dungeon then, is the hermetically sealed hell into which God’s image-bearers have been flung and conditioned by the devil's human tools to believe they have no soul/spirit because it cannot be weighed, measured, tested, seen or touched. Thus in despair, Herman Melville wrote:
“Man disennobled---brutalized; By popular science---atheitized; Into a smatterer…” (The Restitution of Man: C.S. Lewis and the Case against Scientism, p. 32)
Instead of Adam, lamented Disraeli,
“…our ancestry is traced to the most grotesque of creatures; thought is phosphorous, the soul complex nerves, and our moral sense a secretion of sugar.” (ibid, p 33)
According to Lewis, Darwinism is another example of credulous thinking fostered by scientism. He lamented that scientism wizards have conditioned the modern mind to accept as a scientific formula for the universe in general the principle,
“Almost nothing may be expected to turn into almost everything without noticing that the parts of the universe under our direct observation tell a quite different story.” (The Magician’ Twin, p. 27)
Fueled by Darwinism, this sort of credulity conditions people to accept without question an inverted view of creation wherein,
“…the oak coming from the acorn, the man from the spermatozoon, the modern steamship from the primitive coracle. The supplementary truth that every acorn was dropped by an oak, every spermatozoon derived from a man, and the first boat by something so much more complex than itself as a man of genius, is simply ignored.” (ibid, pp. 26-27)
Lewis also saw that with its inverted account of origins, evolutionism, like Freudianism, promotes a “fatal self-contradiction” regarding the human mind. Although modern science is to be based on logic, evidence and critical intellectual inquiry, according to the Darwinian view, life emerged from spontaneously generated non-living matter (chemicals), thus reason is “simply the unforeseen and unintended by-product of a mindless process at one stage of its endless and aimless becoming.” Lewis points to the fatal self-contradiction of this claim:
“If my own mind is a product of the irrational---if what seem my clearest reasoning’s are only the way in which a creature conditioned as I am is bound to feel---how shall I trust my mind when it tells me about Evolution?” (ibid)
Lewis concluded that the fact that zealous adherents of the natural science and evolution viewpoint cannot by any effort be taught to see the fatal self-contradictions and other fallacies of their viewpoint confirmed his suspicion that,
“…we here touch a radical disease in their whole style of thought.” (ibid, p. 27)
In other words, why do they refuse to see that natural science and Darwinism are intrinsically evil? And why do they accuse and crucify non-believers of being anti-science as though they are blaspheming a god?
With respect to those who have simply swallowed whole natural science and evolution without question, the answer doubtless resides in stubborn pride, timidity, a need to be accepted at any cost and ambition. It’s America’s intellectual, cultural and political self-designated ‘elites’ who are spiritually dead and warped.
They utterly reject the living God Who exists outside the space-time dimension, thus like their father the devil their greatest concern has been to ridicule, mock, belittle and crush faithful Christians and Jews, creationists, and the belief that man is created in His spiritual image, therefore subject to Him, His Moral Law, and Judgment upon death of their bodies.
In his book, “America’s Ruling Class,” professor Angelo Codevilla writes that because the faith of the Ruling Class is in natural science (neo-pagan naturalism) and evolution they believe that middle class Americans are descended from apes, driven by chance, the environment, and the instinctual will to primacy.
As our Ruling Class are largely pantheists who believe they possess a share or spark of God’s Divine Substance resulting in self-worship, the crux of their problem is the incarnate God Jesus Christ, the living, personal God who presents to man an immediate form of the Absolute Creator God outside of the natural dimension, therefore discontinuous with man. This means that no man shares the Divine Substance of God as all ancient and modern evolutionary pantheist nature systems hold.
The Incarnate God is near enough to man to be known, to know man’s most intimate thoughts and be consulted by way of prayer and petitions. He imposes on man decisive limitations such as the finiteness of man’s mind, his fallen corrupted condition, and the two created sexes, male and female. Upon death of the body, God passes judgment upon the immortal soul according to how he or she spent their time here on earth with the consequence of either eternal life in Paradise or eternity in outer darkness.
America’s pagan Ruling Class cannot and will not tolerate the living Incarnate God yet are entirely comfortable with Gnostic pagan notions of an impersonal, unknowable god-substance or the quasi-Buddhist/Hindu New Age notion of a god-force immanent and/or identical with nature, therefore of man. They are also comfortable with materialist conceptions of no God. These concepts place immeasurable power in the hands of fallen, easily corruptible men which is why they most accommodate the self-idolatry, lust, covetousness, envy and wrath of the left-right Ruling Class Masters who hold unevolved middle class ‘apes’ in monstrous contempt and run rough-shod over them, riding them with bits, bridles, spurs and whips.
According to any of these positions, man becomes by default, either a highly evolved god-man or a god incarnate insofar as he occupies the supreme spiritual role in the universe. Like the mad Red Queen, the god-man or god incarnate may idolize the absolute uniqueness and superiority of his thoughts, emotions, appetites, and enthusiasms. In short, for both America’s Ruling Class pantheists and transnational New Age Masters of the Universe, these positions allow them to cherish the idolatrous notion that they are the Masters whose will to power is the highest form of thought, decision, or action.
As evolution disavows the Fall, the Masters praise Lucifer, who for them is not the devil but rather a being of good, the first free thinker, the liberator of man, seething force and angel of evolution while Jehovah God is an evil demiurge and Jesus Christ just another mortal after the fashion of Buddha.
America’s Ruling Class and transnational Masters aspire to transform our Western Christian republic into a syncretic multiracial, omni-gendered, multicultural, multilingual, multiethnic occult controlled communist-style empire that has no successful precedent in the history of the world.
British historian Nesta Webster, author of "World Revolution" describes their transformational plan, which she calls Communism, as a program hitherto unprecedented in the history of civilization. The Plan calls for the total destruction of civilization as we know it with particular emphasis upon Western Christian civilization. Its' basic tenets are summarized in the following five points:
1. Abolition of all ordered governments and national boundaries
2. Abolition of private property and inheritances
3. Abolition of national boundaries and patriotism
4. Abolition of family life and the institution of Biblically instituted marriage, and the establishment of cradle-to-grave state-controlled communal education
5. Abolition of all religion with particular emphasis upon orthodox Christianity and faithful Judaism
Webster connects the Plan to Luciferian Illuminism and describes its shocking agenda:
"Communistic theories had been held by isolated thinkers or groups of thinkers since the days of Plato, but no one, as far as we know, had ever yet seriously proposed to destroy everything for which civilization stands. Moreover...the plan of Illuminism as codified by the above five points has continued up to the present day to form the exact programme of the World Revolution." (New World Order, William Still, p. 71)
According to the Plan, if all men everywhere are given complete liberty (amoral license) and equality (sameness) then peace and harmony will reign, thus for example, the Obama State Department aggressively promotes equality (sameness) between "gays" and straights here in America and across the globe. Its' latest target is the Czech Republic, where the Obama administration has joined with other "outside pressure groups" to push gay equality in the Czech Republic, in direct opposition to the will of the overwhelming majority of the Czech people. (121 Bravely Stand In Opposition To The Global Gay Agenda, 8/12/2012, Conservative American Online)
Webster points to a basic, important contradiction in the Plan that fosters revolution and chaos rather than peace and harmony. Since Cain murdered his brother Abel said Webster, murder has been tragically commonplace among men because no man is born good, as self-deceived advocates of the Plan believe. The truth is that all men are born self-centered hedonists possessed of an intrinsic need to seek pleasure, avoid pain, and engage in those activities that best accomplish both with the least amount of effort.
No man is born good. In this light we can understand why the Plan fosters murder, genocide, revolution and chaos rather than peace and harmony. Thus Webster astutely observed:
"It is impossible to have complete liberty and equality, the two are mutually exclusive. It is possible to have a system of complete liberty in which every man is free to behave as he pleases, to rob or to murder, to live, according to the law of the jungle, rule by the strongest...there is no equality there. Or one may have a system of absolute equality, of cutting every one down to the same dead level, of crushing all incentive in man to rise above his fellows, but there is no liberty there." (Still, p. 71)
In the first instance, the Plan divinizes man and his darkest, most demonic passions, urges, appetites, and compulsions thus inflating self-idolatry, covetousness, hatred and envy which in turn lead to brutality and murder in the name of complete liberty, or license. Rule by the strongest, most conscienceless ends in the realm of what Saint Augustine calls libido dominandi---the realm of the earthly city ruled by envy, covetousness, lust for power, self-glory and self-gratification at the expense of the weakest.
Envy is the most-cold-blooded sin of all and when it becomes permissible, fashionable, and completely unbridled, it always leads to killing fields, gulags and concentration camps.
In his book, “Envy: A Theory of Social Behavior,” Helmut Schoeck calls our age the “age of envy.” By this he means that fewer people than ever are ashamed of being envious, seemingly believing that the fact of their envy is proof that social injustice has been done, that the envious one is in fact justified in verbally crucifying and seeking vengeance against the object of his envy.
With every passing day here in America and throughout the West, the primacy of envy comes that much closer to being granted. And once granted there can be no complaint when the grossest brutalities are committed in the name of tolerance, inclusion, diversity, gay rights, abortion, euthanasia, and genocide on behalf of ensuring proper observance of and submission to natural science and evolution, saving the planet and whatever other pseudo-values are esteemed by self-idolaters.
In the eyes of America's Masters it is already the case that since they share the Divine Substance of God and stand beyond good and evil, then they do not commit brutality merely because they want to dominate middle class 'apes,' seize their property, corrupt and sexualize their children, throw our borders open to evil-intentioned jihadis so they can blow up people and buildings, blaspheme God, and utterly destroy human objects of envy. After all, if the object of envy, God Incarnate Jesus Christ, faithful Christians and successful people had not existed then neither would our envy-bitten Masters been 'caused' to crucify and kill them.
According to the Plan, evil and suffering are the fault of Jehovah God, just as it will be the fault of the resistant and all anti-science blasphemers who will eventually be exterminated by the highly evolved Masters as a necessary price to pay for human evolution.
