"[T]here is a plan for world government that is in place and eating like a metastasized cancer into every nation, free and bound, in the world. Under the banner of saving the planet we are drowning liberty." (Agenda 21: How the U.N. Reaches into Your Home Town, Lee Duigon, chalcedon.edu)
The reason for the paucity of news reporting on Agenda 21 said Duigon, is because it has been deliberately designed and executed to operate out of the limelight.:
"It has not been debated in the U. S. Senate. It has not come up in presidential debates. It requires no active participation of the national government. And it is cloaked in euphemisms, most notably "smart growth," "sustainability," and, of course, 'green.' Whenever you hear any of those terms used by a public official, be suspicious. Agenda 21 is lurking in the background." (ibid)
The religious creed of Agenda 21 is secular pantheist. Its' logo is "the interlocking circles of Ecology, Economy, and Social Equity."
Its' 'new' 10 commandments are literally chiseled into the towering stone slabs of the Georgia Guidestones.
Sometimes known as Americas' Stonehenge, the Guidestones consist of six granite slabs weighing 237,746 pounds in all. One slab stands in the center with four arranged around it. A message conveying a set of ten guidelines or commandments is inscribed on the structure in English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese and Russian, and a shorter message is inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient languages' scripts: Babylonian, Classical Greek, Sanskrit and Egyptian hieroglyphs.
The human-hating pantheist nature of the Guidestones is revealed in the first commandment which requires the continuous sacrifice of human life for the good of nature while the tenth reaffirms this requirement:
1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature
10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature
In other words, the great enemy of Gaia (mother earth) and the collectivized human organism is the individual man, said the powerfully influential New Age transhumanist/pantheist organization Club of Rome:
"The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fill the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself." (http://www.clubofrome.org/ ; green-agenda.com)
The Club of Rome was founded in 1968 at David Rockefeller’s estate in Bellagio, Italy. It consists of current and former Heads of State, UN beaureacrats, high-level politicians and government officials, kings and queens, diplomats, scientists, theologians, economists, and business leaders from around the globe. A short list includes:
David Rockefeller, the Dalai Lama, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Mikhail Gorbachev, Sir Crispin Tickle, Javier Solana, Kofi Annan, Bill Gates, Ted Turner, George Soros, Tony Blair, Deepak Chopra, Desmond Tutu, Henry Kissinger, Marianne Williams, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Jane Goodal, Vicente Fox, Prince Philippe of Belgium, and Hans Kung.
Club of Rome (CoR) has spawned thousands of interlocking networks of global organizations such as the World Commission on Global Consciousness and Spirituality (WCGCS).
Whereas reports produced by CoR are framed in secular terms like sustainable world order, global union, united earth community, global society, interdependence, sustainable development, masterplan, and blueprint, reports produced by WCGCS speak in openly mystical pantheist terms such as Teilhard's noosphere, global consciousness, earth consciousness, wisdom, the global mind, the Gaia mind, global ethics, planetization, conscious evolution, the great awakening, the great transition and the great shift.
For example, Princeton University’s Global Consciousness Project (GCP) is an international effort:
"...involving researchers from several institutions and countries, designed to explore whether the construct of interconnected consciousness can be scientifically validated through objective measurement." http://noosphere.princeton.edu/
The GCP was conceived at Esalen, a famous New Age commune in connection with the founders of the GaiaMind Project and describes itself as dedicated to exploring the idea that the evolved human organism is Earth finally becoming aware of itself:
"...the next step in the evolution of consciousness would seem to be our collective recognition that through our technological and spiritual interconnectedness we represent the Earth growing an organ of self-reflexive consciousness....we believe that the Earth is alive, and we are part of it (and) we affirm the Great Spirit of Oneness found at the heart of all the worlds great spiritual traditions." ( http://www.gaiamind.org/ )
Since its inauguration in 1988 the WCGCS has formed powerful interlocking circles, partnerships and collaborations in the interest of pantheist planetary transformation. Toward this end WCGSC has identified a number of pressing priorities and created 17 global councils to address them. http://globalspirit.org/councils.html
Interconnected consciousness, the great awakening, the great transition and the great shift are other ways of saying 'noosphere.' According to the pantheist heretic Teilhard, noosphere refers to the evolution of human thought which heralds the emergence of 'cosmogenesis-God'' or Omega Point.
Teilhard is almost without question the father of the New Age planetary 'environmental' movement now taking the West and America by storm. He formulated the dominant conceptual framework for a planetary religion (pantheist monism) and spiritually totalitarian global order. Describing himself as a mystic and an evolutionary scientist, Teilhard taught that the spiritual, religious and political unification of the earth was the next great evolutionary leap to come and that this totalist fusion (spiritual communism or communitarianism) was as necessary for the survival of mankind as is the fusion of polar opposites (i.e., good with evil, male with female)
While all of these strange terms and 'isms' seem simply bizarre and irrelevant to most people, the occult pantheist New Age movement is front and center internationally, said Dr. Diane Irving, Professor of the History of Philosophy, and of Medical Ethics. In "Foundations of Transhumanism and Futurism," Irving connects the dots between the well-funded and politically powerful New Age pantheism/transhumanism and much of the controversial medical, "... and scientific genetic engineering and nanotechnology research being performed today -- not to mention their intrusion into economics, art, politics, etc..."
Nor do people usually see,
"....how these "isms", so currently active, actually go back many millennia in history, long before the first Pre-Socratic philosophers or the post-Christian Gnostic cults (all of whom were also deeply influenced by them), grounded ultimately in ancient Gnostic cosmogonies and dogmas of various sorts that date from 5000 B.C. at least -- all obviously forms of paganism and pantheism, with obvious negative consequences to Christian and other "theologies" and "philosophies". Most of what Gnosticism would condone and promote would seriously contradict Christian teachings and Western principles." (Dr. Irving, lifeissues.net, September 28, 2012)
In this light we can see that underlying the totalitarian goal of the New Age environmental movement are "ancient Gnostic cosmogonies" requiring the loss of distinctions between male and female, good and evil, truth and lie, man and all other lifeforms, and ultimately between man and God. And since Earth is the goddess Gaia, then private property, use of fossil fuels, and business practices in general are strictly forbidden because everything seen and unseen is "interconnected," meaning that everything is God.
Thousands of individuals, local groups and planetary organizations around the world are all working toward the realization of this "interconnectedness" through the establishment of a one world government:
"Many of these networks expect the United Nations one day to function as the "central nervous system" in the new world order. This new planetary consciousness is shared by many leaders [such as] Robert Muller, Secretary of
the U.N. Economic and Social Council..." ( "Peace, Prosperity and the Coming Holocaust" Dave Hunt, 1983, pp. 62-63)
Already the mystical pantheist policies of Agenda 21 are woven into,
".... all of the General Plans of the cities and counties in the United States ... for governments to take control of all land use and not leave any of the decision-making in the hands of private property owners.... Its aim is to micromanage the "redevelopment" of towns and cities into forms more agreeable to U. N. masterminds-high-density housing, bicycles instead of cars, reduced living space, restrictions on the use of electricity, public "hearings" and meetings carefully orchestrated in advance to manufacture "consensus" and deter dissent (ibid, Duigon).
In conclusion, the New Age movement is not "new," but ancient. Nor is it scientific. It is rather the culmination of pantheist mysticism and cosmic evolutionism throughout history. It is monistic, meaning that the divinized cosmos is all there is. It speaks in both secular and religious language to transform men's consciousness and put them in touch with their Higher Selves. It erases all boundaries, limitations and distinctions. It believes in the eternal existence of matter, reincarnation and in guidance by Transcended Masters, Spirits and forces. It promotes self-centeredness because it believes man's 'self' is the seat of the Higher Self, or divinity of the cosmos. It is supremely confident about man's next great evolutionary leap towards "oneness" and a one-world totalist order. It has no concept of truth and lie, good or evil, male or female because everything is "one." It heralds a coming 'selection process' wherein the most highly evolved enter the New Age while for the millions of "unfit" there will be extermination. And why not liquidate them if reincarnation and karma are true?
And finally, it hates faithful Christians and Jews and especially the sovereign, personal, transcendent God. For God's people there will be yet another Final Solution.
