“The Christian religion is the religion of our country. From it are derived our prevalent notions of the character of God, the great moral governor of the universe. On its doctrines are founded the peculiarities of our free institutions.” (William McGuffey, d. May 4, 1873, professor at the University of Virginia, president of Ohio University, and author of McGuffey’s Readers; http://www.earstohear.net/Separation/warnings.html)
Andre Comte-Sponville, one of France's preeminent atheist philosophers agrees. In his New York Times bestseller, "The Little Book of Atheist Spirituality," Sponville observes that even though Western and American civilization has become nonreligious it is nevertheless profoundly rooted in transcendent Biblical morality and traditions. That overt and implied atheism has all but supplanted Biblical beliefs pleases yet simultaneously frightens Sponville as he clearly sees that if Western civilization entirely ceases to be Christian it will fall into something like a refined nihilism. And if we believe that nothing remains,
"....we might as well throw in the towel at once. We would have nothing left to oppose to either fanaticism from without or to nihilism from within---and, contrary to what many people seem to think, nihilism is the primary danger. We would belong to a dead civilization, or at least a dying one....Wealth has never sufficed to make a civilization, poverty, even less so. Civilizations require culture, imagination, enthusiasm and creativity, and none of these things come without courage, work and effort." Without these necessities, "Good night...the Western world has decided to replace faith with somnolence." (pp. 28-29)
Sponville admits that he had believed in the supernatural Triune God and been raised a Christian. Up till around the age of eighteen his faith was powerful until he embraced Darwinism and fell away, and this falling away said Sponville, was liberating, because for the liberated autonomous 'self' whose life no longer has any ultimate meaning or purpose there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do, or why his friends should not live in the way that they find most advantageous to themselves.
But the lies and perverse license, the nihilism Sponville rejoices in becomes an unbearable source of horror and dread when reproduced in millions of souls. Sponville is right to fear the spread of nihilism, for when multiplied by millions it means there is no longer an ultimate, transcendent source of unchanging truth and moral law higher than and independent of man, and as Sponville knows, therefore dreads, the lie is the father of violence:
"(The lie) is the word, act, sign of cunning or silence which makes use of wiles to deceive (all who seek) truth....the attitude of the liar, who full of subtlety, audacity and at times cruel cynicism, misleads his neighbor into the quick sands of falsity. The use of the lie reveals the liar as a person of evil intentions. He who tells lies as a way of getting ahead lacks a love of truth (he or she is) a self-centered dissimulator, cunningly manipulating his fellowmen for his own evil purposes." (The Roots of Violence, Rev. Vincent P. Miceli, S.J., p.29)
Nihilism is the satanically inverted philosophy of violence and license of America’s president, his cabinet and the amoral progressive ruling class of which they are members. It is also the philosophy of the Marquis de Sade, Friedrich Nietzsche, Karl Marx and the Sophist Callicles in Plato’s ‘Georgias’ who declares:
“The fact is this: luxury and licentiousness and liberty, if they have the support of force, are virtue and happiness and the rest of these embellishments-—the unnatural covenants of mankind-—are all mere stuff and nonsense.” (Making Gay Okay, Reilly, pp. 31-32)
In other words, with a consensus of lies backed by the threat of violence, the Bible, the Christian Church, virtue, truth, marriage, gender, private property, your children, your humanity, your business, and the Constitution become whatever agents of violence and the mobs in back of them want them to be or not to be from one moment to the next.
What nihilism has already led to in England, said Nate Steuer of JeremiahCry Ministries, are buildings that once served as churches that are now museums, stores and even nightclubs, a strong belief in evolution and a strong homosexual-rights movement:
"They don't want to hear the gospel. The gospel is pressed down," said Steuer, and the homosexual-rights movement is so rooted in England that Christians are afraid to go "into the streets and preach," fearing what the LBGT community will do." ("Fate of Christianity in UK not too far from U.S., warns evangelist," Chris Woodward, OneNewsNow.com, July 8, 2014)
Evolutionary scientism is a form of nihilism that has amply demonstrated itself as a virulently anti-human, pathologically destructive, demonically murderous worldview. In just the first eighty-seven years of the twentieth century, violent spirits who love evil and devouring words and breathe out slaughter and death brutally exterminated between 100-170 million un-evolved 'subhuman' men, women, and children in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.
In the Soviet Union, the Triune God-and-human hating nihilist of violence, Vladimir Lenin, exulted that,
"Darwin put an end to the belief that the animal and vegetable species bear no relation to one another (and) that they were created by God, and hence immutable." (Fatal Fruit, Tom DeRosa, p. 9)
In other words, with the 'death' of the Triune God uninhibited violence against millions of people is allowable because they are no longer the image-bearers of the Triune God but rather products of evolution on a par with slime, weeds, slugs and rocks. Empowered by evolutionism, Lenin exercised godlike power over life and death. He saw himself as, "the master of the knowledge of the evolution of social species."
Fueled by hate, contempt and murderous rage it was Lenin who "decided who should disappear by virtue of having been condemned to the dustbin of history." From the moment Lenin made the "scientific" decision that the bourgeoisie represented a stage of humanity that evolution had surpassed, "its liquidation as a class and the liquidation of the individuals who actually or supposedly belonged to it could be justified." (The Black Book of Communism, p. 752)
In Nazi Germany evolution resulted in gas chambers, ovens, and the liquidation of eleven million "useless eaters" and other undesirables.
Alain Brossat draws the following conclusions about the two regimes of nihilism, the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, and the ties that bind them:
"The 'liquidation' of the Muscovite executioners, a close relative of the 'treatment' carried out by Nazi assassins, is a linguistic microcosm of an irreparable mental and cultural catastrophe that was in full view on the Soviet Stage. The value of human life collapsed, and thinking in categories replaced ethical thought…In the discourse and practice of the Nazi exterminators, the animalization of Other…was closely linked to the ideology of race. It was conceived in the implacably hierarchical racial terms of "subhumans" and "supermen"…but in Moscow in 1937, what mattered…was the total animalization of the Other, so that a policy under which absolutely anything was possible could come into practice." (Black Book of Communism, p. 751)
As in England, evolutionary scientism has replaced the Triune God, thus with the total animalization of 'other' millions of unborn humans have been aborted and late-term unborn babies brutally dismembered. Writing in, "New York Abortion Bill Allows Shooting Babies Through the Heart With Poison to Kill Them" Steven Ertelt reports that New York is already the abortion/murder capital of the United States, with practically no oversight of the industry. Throughout the second trimester, developing babies can be completely dismembered,
"... even when they can feel pain (by) pulling the baby out piece by piece until the mother’s uterus is empty. After the abortion, the abortionist must reassemble the child’s body to ensure nothing has been left inside the child’s mother." (LifeNews.com | 5/20/14 6:28 PM)
What nihilists now demand for late-term abortions and will be legalized in New York by the abortion-expanding Women’s Equality Act, is the murder of babies,
"... by sliding a needle filled with a chemical agent, such as digoxin, into the beating heart, before being delivered."
Then there is Wisconsin-based abortionist Dennis Christensen and his partner Bernard Smith who have performed 85,000 to 95,000 abortions in a 40 year period:
“So I see it as a calling, I guess,” Christensen said. “But I’ve been called, I’ve served and now I’d like to call someone else.” (Abortionist Who’s Killed 95,000 Babies in Abortions: “I See It as a Calling” Steven Ertelt, LifeNews.com, 7/7/14)
Something "called him" to murder 95,000 babies, but it wasn't the Triune God.
When for millions of nihilists the Triune God does not exist and life has no higher, fixed meaning or purpose with neither hope of an afterlife nor any accountability to their Maker for their actions here in this world, then men no longer have reason and purpose for being good, thus are free to be evil. They are free to invoke meaningless law and perverted justice to restrain freedom, to dismember babies, to force disordered appetites upon men, women, and children; to accuse the good man of evil, to enslave other people, to deprive them of life-sustaining electricity, gas, and water; to vandalize and plunder the property and wealth of others and to throw our borders open to floods of illegals and rapists, drug-lords, pedophiles, murderers and other sinister individuals.
Nihilism means that sinisterists are free to lie so as to "normalize" whatever wicked schemes they desire, such as global change, redistributive justice, common core, 'gay' equality and marriage.
A society of nihilists is a welcome mat to evil human predators of every stripe from drug lords, Satanists, ISIS, and the Muslim Brotherhood to flesh-peddlers and the world's criminal elites: the occult Luciferian New World Order super-wealthy criminal consortium and their merciless leftwing and rightwing allies. This cohort of sinister nihilists believe in nothing, know only hate, contempt, violence, greed and egotism and share a foundational hatred of the Triune God, faithful Christians and Jews and traditional Christian grounded Western and American civilization.
In the impeccably documented, scholarly book, "Sinisterism: Secular Religion of the Lie," Bruce Walker describes the super-wealthy consortium and their like-minded allies as Sinisterists, making political labels like Far Right (Nazis/Fascists), Far Left (Bolsheviks, Marxists, Communists) and even like-minded Radical Muslims the same thing.
What unites Sinisterists are their hatreds:
"They hate Christians...Jews...America (and) Israel. They hate truth. They hate the very idea of truth. They hate the idea of humans as unique and special in the universe. They hate the idea of a great moral purpose unfolding in our lives. Sinisterism is a bundle of connected hatreds. For the sake of their hatreds, Sinisterists lust for power." (preface)
Because Sinisterists "hate the idea of humans as unique and special in the universe," they have 'killed' the Triune God and forced nihilistic Darwinian materialism on us because it reduces mankind to nothing. They invent words and sound-bite phrases such as heterosexist, homophobe, global warming/cooling/change and nonexistent categories of mankind such as "racial species" that imprison thought. Following are some other examples:
1. Multiculturalism: the insidious destruction of America's traditional culture by way of elevating pagan and pantheist cultures and belief systems in the name of politically correct tolerance and inclusion.
2.'Gay rights/'gay' marriage, perverse sex education: rebellion against and negation of the two created sexes and the idea of normal.
3. Political correctness, speech codes, sensitivity training, and hate crime laws: psychic-cages for the minds of traditional-values Americans.
4. Perverse sex education: As was the case in the Soviet Union, its ultimate purpose is the subversion and perversion of our youth---the awakening of the Devil, as Karl Marx's comrade Bakunin said.
5 Critical theory: the mindless vomiting out of destructive criticism upon everything good, true, excellent, normal, and traditional.
6. Global change, Agenda 21, redistributive justice: the evisceration of our standard of living and individual liberties in order to 'save the planet' — in other words, impoverishment, death and slavery on behalf of Gaia.
7. Sustainability: Extreme population control calling for the annihilation of billions of people tied to theft of private property to achieve spiritual communism.
8. Religious Pluralism: the erasure of faithful Judaism, Christian theism and America's founding Christian-based worldview by way of elevating Wicca, animism, Islam, New Age occult spirituality, Gnostic paganism, Buddhism, shamanism, goddess worship, Luciferian Masonry and atheism in the name of politically correct tolerance and inclusion.
In order to destroy rational thinking, Sinisterists use words and phrases (i.e., change, "make love not war," "we are Trayvon") to create images rather than ideas and then concentrate on endless repetition of the same word-pictures,
"...to create an hypnotic effect to defend an otherwise hopeless case. Sinisterists use the same words over and over again." (p.12)
The black heart of Sinisterism is the worship of lies, particularly the Big Lie of evolution. 'Elite' transnational Robert Muller, father of Common Core Curriculum, former Assistant Secretary-General of the UN and former Chancellor of the UN University for Peace in Costa Rica speaks of the fate that will befall all politically incorrect thinkers, especially anti-evolutionists:
"...all those who hold contrary beliefs" to politically correct thought favored for the "next phase of evolution" will "disappear." A hellish fate awaits all who resist political and spiritual globalization, "..those who criticize the UN are anti-evolutionary, blind, self-serving people. Their souls will be parked in a special corral of the universe for having been retarding forces, true aberrations in the evolution and ascent of humanity." (False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 133)
With full malice aforethought, sinisterists have dumbed-down Westerners and Americans by infiltrating our education institutions and even our seminaries with nihilist philosophies, evolutionary scientism, perverse sex education, perverse 'higher Biblical criticism,' critical theory, multiculturalism and revised history .
As evolution and the relativity of truth are fatal doctrines-- types of nihilism that deny objective truth and reality--- they result in the rapid disintegration of critical thinking, faith in God, respect and manners resulting in a perversely inverted society of narcissistic despots, thugs, and bizarre libidinous individuals at every level of government and society who know how they feel and what they are entitled to but can't think, can't spell, and don't know right from wrong.
It should be obvious by now, said Walker, that the relations of people in American and Western society are growing coarser,
".....more dishonest....shallower....lonelier...more desperate for the narcotics of power, applause and fear as we perceive ourselves moving closer to the status of gods and goddesses. If we choose, as individuals, that idolatry, then we are doomed. All the dystopian nightmares of Orwell, Bradbury, Huxley and others will become real all too soon....we will (either) surrender to thugs governing enslaved nations or embittered terrorists." (p. 252)
Today we are living in the days of nihilism. Ecstatic with the voluptuous delight of destruction which rolls humans into satanic depths nihilists keep pushing society to the brink of social chaos and suicide:
“The Modern Liberal will invariably (and) inevitably side with evil over good, wrong over right and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success. When I say the Modern Liberal is morally and intellectually retarded at the level of the five-year old child, it is not hyperbole: its diagnosis.” (Evan Sayet, The Kindergarten of Evil, evansayet.com)
Nihilism is lawlessness, idolatry, violence, perversion, fear, terrors of mind, horrors of conscience and loss of true freedom since the despair of nihilism ends in slavery to addictive vices (man's dark side), death, and damnation.
In his poem "The Second Coming," Yeats reveals the murderous delight of de Sade's, Nietzsche's, Marx's, and Callicles modern offspring:
"Things fall apart; the center cannot hold
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned
The best lack all conviction, while the worst are
Full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand."
If Western and American nihilists continue to set the personal Triune God aside in favor of "self," and what they really do know are lies and empty, shallow, meaningless evil, then a tyranny of evil will come upon us swiftly and terribly. But there is another path before us. The path of repentance, truth, decency and God's Divine Truth. His eternally unchanging Truth will set us free. We should choose the path of Truth and goodness:
"On that choice hangs the fate of humanity. People will either embrace goodness or deny that goodness can exist and commit moral suicide (and) worship The Lie." (p. 252)
People who choose the way of true truth will find the goodness of God. As they follow the Way of Truth they will stumble sometimes, journey down blind alleys sometimes, be on the wrong side of causes sometimes,
"...but will never lose hope or the help of other normal people and the Blessed Creator of the Universe." (p. 233)
One path leads up toward truth, light, beauty, goodness, courage, hope, peace and eternal physical life in a physical Paradise. The other leads ever downward into the despair of nihilism, the darkness of lies, the stench of soul-destroying hate, and the terror of nothingness finally issuing into an eternity in outer darkness.
