Evolution: Anti-Creation Religion of Secular Atheists & Powerful Occult Pantheists

John 1:10 tells us that everything seen and unseen was created ex nihilo by the spoken Word of the Son of God. Jesus Christ is therefore God just as the Father and Holy Spirit are God, thus the Word of the Genesis account is Jesus Christ of the New Testament.  Jesus Christ is the Word.   His Word is Truth even as He Himself is Truth, the same today as yesterday and for always.

 

In the classic work "Earth's Earliest Ages" (1876), G.H. Pember, an English theologian, records that  men of the 19th century are returning to ancient wisdom traditions and thought is "sustaining its flight upon the wings of ancient lore."   Almost every characteristic of antiquity is returning:

"Open intercourse with demons is being renewed on a vast scale in the very heart of Christendom....numerous circles are carrying on magical practices (and the) ancient Mysteries (are being restored together with) mesmeric healings....astrology....and other practices....And, impossible as it would have seemed a few years ago, all these 'superstitions' are floating back....upon the tide of 'modern thought."   They come no longer veiled in mystery, "but in accordance with the spirit of the age, present themselves as the fruit of science...progress....and evolutionary philosophy."   (Earth's Earliest Ages, G.H. Pember, pp. 243, 245)

Today evolutionary philosophy and the ancient wisdom traditions undergirding it are promoted by modern practitioners as more than mere science. Evolution is promulgated as an ideology, a secular humanist religion, a "full-fledged alternative to Christianity" with meaning and morality, said Michael Ruse,

" I am an ardent evolutionist and an ex-Christian, but I must admit that in this one complaint—and Mr [sic] Gish is but one of many to make it—the literalists are absolutely right. Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today.… Evolution therefore came into being as a kind of secular ideology, an explicit substitute for Christianity."   Michael Ruse
 
Michael Ruse was professor of philosophy and zoology at the University of Guelph, Canada. He was the leading anti-creationist philosopher whose flawed arguments  convinced a biased judge to rule against the Arkansas ‘balanced treatment’ of creation and evolution in schools bill proposed in 1981. At the trial, he and other anti-creationists loftily dismissed the claim that evolution was an anti-god religion.  (creation.com)
 
As Ruse confessed though, evolution is an anti-creation religion, a "full-fledged alternative to Christianity."  It is 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, and Illuminism.  The mother of Illuminism is Babylon's Mystery Religion which teaches 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)  

The goal of Illuminism is the transformation of human initiates into supermen  (god-men) who in turn will impose a worldwide totalitarian pagan and occult pantheist state.  During the 20th century Illuminism took the form of scientific socialism and scientific communism.  Today it is 'green' Technocracy, a scientific dictatorship calling for the radical transformation of traditional Western economics, government, law, energy, Christianity, and humanity which is why it maliciously fosters the atheism, amorality, envy, chaos, blood-letting and revolution necessary for undermining and overthrowing already existing governments.  (Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation, Patrick M. Wood) 

Scientifically Demonstrable Revelations

In the heart of Christendom at the time of the Renaissance the "alternative" originally took the form of occult pantheist humanism bespeaking evolution of divine spark or spirit to higher and higher states of god-consciousness.  Later on another form arose: evolutionary secular materialist  humanism.  While the former was blatantly occult and spiritually pantheist, the latter was essentially a de-spiritualized pagan materialism---a magical version of the former falsely presenting itself as demonstrable empirical science to masses of hopeless people.  Bereft of assurances of immortality after so great an attack on biblical revelation masses of hopeless people were "begging for a revelation which was scientifically demonstrable."  James Webb

One such 'scientific' revelation was provided by Karl Marx.  Marxs' secular-atheist dialectical-materialism (evolutionism) cannot be understood apart from the inventor of the dialectic system, master-magician G.W.F. Hegel. Hegel was an important member of the occult intelligentsia. He closely studied ancient and modern wisdom traditions including ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic and Babylonian Kabala as well as mesmerism, psychic phenomena, dowsing, precognition, and sorcery. He professed belief in a pantheistic Earth Spirit, and informally aligned himself with Hermetic societies, anti-Christian God Freemasons, and the pantheist-Rosicrucian's. (Hegel and the Hermetic Tradition, Glenn Alexander Magee, 2001)

Enrico Ferri (1856-1926) provides another scientifically demonstrable "revelation.  Ferri was a prominent socialist of his day and an Italian criminologist who for many years was the editor of Avanti, a socialist daily.  In "Socialism and Religious Beliefs"  Ferri confesses that in his scientific "revelation" divine miracle-producing 'knowing' energies animate ideological systems,

 "....modern positive science...has substituted the conception of natural causality for the conception of miracles and divinity....I add that not only is Darwinism not contrary to socialism, but that it forms one of its fundamental scientific premises. As Virchow justly remarked, socialism is nothing else than the logical and vital outcome partly of Darwinism and partly of Spencerian evolution." (Marxists.org)

In another example of a scientifically demonstrable "revelation," Gustav Wetter expounds on the magical 'mental' and 'divine' properties animating and informing nonliving matter and dialectic:

"...matter itself continually attains to higher perfection under its own power, thanks to indwelling dialectic...the dialectical materialists attribution of 'dialectic' to matter confers on it, not mental attributes only, but even divine ones." (Dialectical Materialism, Gustav A. Wetter, 1977, p. 58)

  Occult Scientism Undergirds Scientific "Revelations"

 In his book, The Abolition of Man (1947), C.S. Lewis observed that the Renaissance had reawakened a magical view of man and the world closely connected with ancient occult sciences and pantheist wisdom traditions.  Along with these arcane nature systems came conceptions of biological and spiritual transformism of one kind of lower thing to another kind of higher thing (i.e. chemicals to life, pond scum to fish; apes to man; man to god), reincarnation, karma and for secular materialists there eventually came philosophically materialist Darwinism, natural selection (a mystical choice-making energy) and determinism (mystical fatalism).

Early on Lewis understood that these two types of pagan and pantheist humanism were merely two sides of the same revival of nature worship. Thus he argued, occult pantheist and materialist humanism are not enemies in principle but rather cooperating philosophies of naturalism united against the personal God in three Persons who created ex nihilo, His Authoritative Revelation to mankind, Original Sin, man as His spiritual image-bearer, moral law, immutable truth, Christian theism, and Christian-based civilization.
 
Catholic philosopher and historian Thomas Molnar (1910-2010) reveals two recurring common themes uniting both schools of thought in his book "Utopia: The Perennial Heresy." The two themes of both schools of thought are monism (naturalism, meaning only nature or cosmos exists) and evolutionary conceptions. At the root of these two themes there is:
 
"...defiance of God, pride unlimited, a yearning for enormous power and the assumption of divine attributes with a view to manipulating and shaping mankind's fate." (p. 227)
 
In other words, in order for modern super men to scientifically engineer a perfected new world order populated by a perfected New Man, two actions must first take place:  the speculative murder of the living Holy Triune God and the sealing off of the way to Heaven.    
 
John Taylor Gatto, former New York State and New York City Teacher of the Year, also tracked the rise of this destructive modern occult pagan intelligentsia together with the potent "interconnected shadow-government" they have created to radically reshape the Western and American consciousness.  In his book, "The Underground History of American Education"  Gatto points to the Fabian socialist utopians as one of the most powerfully effective revolutionary 'change-making' organizations and notes that,
 
"...it would not be too far out of line to call the twentieth century the Fabian century." (Gatto, p. 178)
 
What 'scientific' secular-atheists aspired to be in completely reordering Christian-based Western society and the souls of men according to scientific evolutionary principles, 20th century Fabians actually were.  Much if not most of the madness, chaos and all else that has gone so horribly wrong here in America is attributable to the Fabians.
 
The first Fabians had almost all been lapsed Anglicans from Evangelical homes who became dignitaries in the Church of England:
 
"There was a Christian fringe to the London socialism of the eighties, but this too was Anglican. The Christian Socialists came together in Stewart Headlam's Guild of St. Matthew and the Land Reform Union; and the more respectable Christian Social Union, formed in 1889 -- seeking in Fabian style to permeate the Anglican Church -- soon attracted more than two thousand clerical members. Dissenting clergymen too began to find a place in the Fabian Society and the London Progressives, while Unitarian churches and centres like Stanton Coit's Ethical Church provided a meeting place for believers and idealist agnostics . . . Socialism was for all of them, the new Evangelism." (Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie, The Fabians, Simon & Schuster, 1977, p. 18)

The failure of many Anglican hierarchy to repudiate apostatizing higher Biblical critics and radical freethinkers scandalized faithful, orthodox Evangelicals, whose outraged response was considered reactionary by the scholarly community. In 1861, Benjamin Jowett and six liberal Churchmen published a volume entitled Essays and Reviews, in which they expressed alarm lest "the majority of Churchmen, by holding fast the narrow, fundamental beliefs" in the Genesis account for example,

"...should estrange themselves more and more from contemporary thought."  (The Founders of Psychical Research, Alan Gauld, p. 49)

Jowett himself held that, "Scripture must be interpreted like any other book and some of the essayists were even more radical in their tone."

The portents of apostasy in the Church of England were ominous:

"It seemed to conservative Christians quite appalling that at a time when the impregnable rock of Holy Scripture was being undermined by Darwin and his allies, a group of those whose sacred duty should have been to shore it up again had conspired to hammer their wedges not under it but into it." (Gauld, p. 50)

Gauld records the rapid decline in spiritual aspirations among younger Cambridge men:

"Scepticism based on science flowed into and reinforced the older stream of doubt stemming from historical and ethical considerations. Their joint effect may be traced in the fact that whilst the outstanding Cambridge men of the 1840's -- B. F. Westcott, C. B. Scott, J. Llewellyn Davies, J.E.B. Mayer, Lord Alwyne Compton, E.H, Bickersteth, C. F. Mackenzie, Charles Evans, J. B. Lightfoot, E. W. Benson and F.J.A. Hort -- all took Orders (three of them becoming great clerical headmasters and six bishops), the outstanding Cambridge intellectuals of the 1870's -- the Trinity group centring on Henry Sidgwick and Henry Jackson and including Frederic Myers, G. W. and A. J. Balfour, Walter Leaf, Edmund Gurney, Arthur Verrall, F. W. Maitland, Henry Butcher and George Prothero -- tended towards agnosticism or hesitant Deism."  (Gauld, p. 64)

In this same period a group of young dons from Trinity College, Cambridge, were also turning to psychic research as a substitute for their lost God-created souls and Evangelical faith:

" In February 1882, Podmore took Pease to a meeting at which this group founded the Society for Psychical Research . . . Among those who founded the SPR were Henry Sidgwick, Arthur Balfour -- later a conservative Prime Minister -- and his brother, Gerald."  (The Fabians, p. 18)

 The progenitor of the socialist Fabian Society was the Cambridge University spiritist group, the Ghost Society founded in 1851. The Ghost Society also spawned the Society for Psychical Research (SPR) founded in 1887:
 
"Council Members and Honorary Members of the SPR included a past Prime Minister (William Gladstone)...and a future Prime Minister (Arthur Balfour)...2 bishops; and Tennyson and Ruskin, two of the outstanding literary figures of the day (as well as) Lewis Carroll (and) a surprising number of titled persons." (Gauld, p. 140)

 Having conceptually murdered the God of Revelation, disowned their own souls, and closed the way to Heaven Fabians sought power here below, thus the over-riding interest of the S.P.R. was the spirit realm. In search of power they conducted scientific research into phenomena such as mesmeric trance, telepathy, clairvoyance, apparitions, haunted houses, seances, and all aspects of mediumism, or contact with spirits, to determine the scientific laws of physical spiritualistic phenomena.
 
 By the early 20th century, the materialist Sigmund Freud and heavily demonized Gnostic occultist Carl Jung were SPR Corresponding Members. Both men contributed to the S.P.R. Journal of Proceedings.
 
In an expose of Jung's occult tendencies Richard Noll writes:
 
"With the founding of the Society for Psychical Research in England in 1882, and the copious publications of its investigators, new models of the unconscious mind emerged. The most respected model was that of the 'subliminal self' by Frederick Myers (1843-1901), the 'mytho-poetic' (myth-making) function of which resembles Jung's later conception of a collective unconscious. Jung read widely in the literature of psychical research in medical school and his 1902 dissertation cites the work of Myers and others in this school." (Noll, The Jung Cult, 1994, pp. 31-2)
 
Above all else, revolutionary/evolutionary socialist organizations such as the Fabians were counter-establishment, anti-tradition, sexual liberationists consisting of committed Darwinian Gnostic elitists who were intolerant of the Holy God in three Persons, man as His spiritual image bearer, and every vestige of authority such as immutable Truth, Moral Law, sexual ethics, the traditional family, free market systems, individual liberties, and cumbersome processes of Americas' Constitutional Republic and  wanted to see a new order ruled by a superior caste.
 
Fabianism took its name from Roman general Fabius Cunctator who finally defeated Hannibal by methodically chipping away at his patience and will to win, an idea adopted by  Marxist theoretician Antonio Gramsci who called for a long, slow, stealthy march through Western and American mind and culture-shaping institutions.   In this way, Christian foundations would be destroyed, minds captured, souls re-engineered and institutions re-ordered.
 
Gatto writes that for Fabianists, Darwin was the 'weird holy man' they adored,
 
"...the man who gave them a theory inspirationally equal to god-theory, around which a new organization of society could be justified." (p. 180)
 
Darwinism is inherently racist because it rejects creation ex nihilo, by extension it also rejects monogenism (all humans descended from Adam and Eve) in favour of polygenism (multiple origins of human races). Thus, to realize the tremendous task that racialist Fabians assigned themselves in scientifically engineering a new order and a New Man said Gatto, we need to reflect on Darwin's shattering books,,
 
'The Origin of Species' (1859) and 'The Descent of Man' (1871), each arguing in its own way that....children are (the evolved product of) their race of origin, some 'favored'...some not" (Gatto, p. 179)
 
Together, Darwin's books issued a license to America's ruling caste to justify racism, moral relativism, the imposition of evolutionary teaching, forced schooling, perverse sex education, population control schemes, and much more, all destructive of America's traditional Christian-based Republic.  Gatto writes that from an evolutionary standpoint, our government controlled schools,
 
"...are the indoctrination phase of a gigantic breeding experiment...Many (children are genetically) a racial menace (while) the rest...thought of as soldiers in genetic combat, the moral equivalent of war....For governments, children could no longer be considered individuals but were regarded as categories, rungs on a biological ladder.  Evolutionary science pronounced the majority useless mouths waiting for nature to dispense with entirely." (Gatto, p. 179)
 
Whereas Christian salvation was formerly held to be a matter between Jesus Christ the Word Incarnate and the individual  and the aim of Christian-based Europe and America had for centuries been fixed on the work of winning liberties for the individual against the oppressive State, the Age of Darwin brought an end to all of this.  By the turn of the century the Fabian program based in "scientifically demonstrable" revelations from the spirit realm and racialist Darwinism was spreading quickly through the best colleges and universities capturing the minds of America's best and brightest issuing in the view that rights, wealth, and privileges are the preserve of the superior caste in control of an omniscient mystical god-State together with salvation as a pantheist conception based in ideas of collectivity.

Secular historians of the nineteenth century agree that the dominant figures in the occult spiritist/socialist movements were mainly lapsed Evangelicals and Anglican clergymen preceded by Renaissance rebels against God.  The onslaught of skepticism, atheism, agnosticism, higher Biblical criticism and dehistorization of the Genesis account together with moral relativism, Darwinism and occult New Age spirituality assaulting the tattered foundations of our Republic were inspired by Protestant/Evangelical heresy together with an unhealthy interest in spiritism. Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie explain this strange anomaly:
 
"The lesson instilled by Evangelical parents had been given a secular form. Evolution or what (Sidney) Webb called Zeitgeist, had taken the place of Providence, yet what Webb described as 'blind social forces...which went on inexorably working out social salvation' did not relieve men of their moral responsibility. Victorian religion had taught that a belief in God's purposes must be accompanied by an effort to discern and advance them. Socialists who substituted a secular religion for the faith of their youth felt the same compulsion." (Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie, The Fabians, 1977, p. 115-116)
 
Todays' Green Dragon

By the mid 1880's the Green Dragon---the spirit of madness, heresy, apostasy, moral relativism, occult magic, spiritism, nature worship and evolutionary thinking working within lapsed Evangelicals was already creeping into the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Church.  Today Christendom is dead and the spirit of green-pagan madness is bringing our Republic to ruin while steadily injecting its' abominations into the whole body of the sleeping American Church. Aided and abetted by falsifiers of the Revealed Word who have "penetrated the Church" with a mist of lies resulting in narcissistic self-affirmation, emotional ecstasy, moral relativism, acceptance of evolutionary philosophy and other ancient wisdom traditions along with liberation from sin and hell,

"....Western civilization is daily committing suicide, by aborting itself, ignoring the law of God, and binding itself in Green chains.  What of professing Christians?  It is not clear many believe, as they still did at the American Revolution, that 'the truths of the gospel are the most pure, its motives are the most noble and animating, and its comforts the most supporting to the mind.' Our culture is arguably as enslaved as were the ancient people chained by Gaia and Python. " (Resisting the Green Dragon, James Wanliss, p. 267)

Only Christ can bring liberation.  The Church needs to recover the Biblical persuasion,

".... that the Christian is a pilgrim on the road to a heavenly city, that the social structures of the earthly city do not represent the coming of God's kingdom, and the vision of a society should be to direct man to what is transcendent." (ibid)

Occult Evolutionary Biology: the Magic Way of Becoming God

When asked why the layman should be interested  ”in so esoteric a subject as evolutionary biology,” one of the leading evolutionists of our day, Professor S.J. Gould responded:

“Because it tells us where we came from, how we got here, and perhaps where we are going. Quite simply, it is science’s version of Roots, except it is the story of us all.”   (The Religious Nature of Evolution Theory and its Attack on Christianity, John G. Leslie and Charles K. Pallaghy, Ph.D, creation.com)

Gould candidly admits that evolutionary biology is an esoteric story of man while the prominent defender of Darwinism, the evolutionary biologist Theodosius Dobzhansky (1900-1975) spoke of God as creating through evolution, which he describes evolution as a light,

“…. which illuminates all facts, a trajectory which all lines of thought must follow.”  (Dobzhansky, T., Ayala, F.J., Stebbins, G.L. and Valentine, J.W., Evolution, W.H. Freeman and Co., San Francisco, 1977)

Western esotericism, or occultism, is the search for and study of an unseen reality.  It is secret knowledge of the hidden.   This hidden or arcane knowledge is meant only for certain people such as Gould, Dobzhansky and like-minded evolutionary esotericists.

Occult practices include but are not limited to Hermetic magic, alchemy, astrology, divination, and spiritualism, or contact with spirits.  Interpretation of occultism and its concepts can be found in philosophies, occult sciences (evolutionary biology) and nature religions such as  ancient Egyptian Hermeticism, Gnosticism, Theosophy, Wicca, Satanism, Thelema and neo-paganism.

A general definition is offered by Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke:

"Occultism has its basis in a religious way of thinking, the roots of which stretch back into antiquity and which may be described as the Western esoteric tradition. Its principal ingredients have been identified as Gnosticism, the Hermetic treatises on alchemy and magic, Neo-Platonism, and the Kabbalah, all originating in the eastern Mediterranean area during the first few centuries AD." (The Occult Roots of Nazism, Good-Rick-Clarke, p. 17)

In this light, evolutionary biology is hidden knowledge (gnosis) based in a philosophy of naturalism..  Its genesis account holds that billions of years ago chemicals generated by a Big Bang which a God may or may not have generated, combined and transcended themselves after a hundred or a thousand identical operations thereby allowing the miraculous transmutation of chemicals into life.   Once life miraculously emerged, natural processes, which God may or may not play a role in,  were set in motion that after passage of vast ages supposedly eventuated in the arrival of man:

If man has arrived at his present state as a result of natural processes rather than a supernatural will, he can learn to control these processes…The concept of evolution, which is now basic to the life sciences, has provided new and in some ways revolutionary answers to questions men have been asking for centuries. The two most important of these are, ‘Why am I here, what is the purpose of human existence, and what is the nature of the world of life that surrounds us?”   (Dobzhansky, T., Ayala, F.J., Stebbins, G.L. and Valentine, J.W., Evolution, W.H. Freeman and Co., San Francisco, 1977)

Like its' Mystery Religion counterpart, evolutionary biology has both an exoteric or outer meaning for mass consumption and a hidden, or occult meaning for higher initiates.

Lurking beneath the idea that life will eventually arise from the mixing of lifeless chemicals (matter) is a vision arising from the age-old technology of alchemy while behind Dobzhansky’s phrase, the “light of evolution,” lies its magical meaning: "As above, so below" the Hermetic principle bespeaking an unseen universal life force emanating or evolving in waves from the hidden dimension of true reality above (i.e., Brahman, Quantum Void, Dobzhansky's God) with which everything in the universe and the physical dimension here below are in continuity.

Within the Egyptian Mysteries, this hidden life force was known as serpent power.  Serpent power was associated with the elemental forces (spirits) in play before creation of the universe, thus Herme's world famous magic formula is represented by the hidden great chain of being symbolized by the Oroboros.  As a powerful occult symbol, the Ouroboros means the seething power, universal life force, creative and/or evolutionary impulse or energy of the serpent figuratively depicted as either a serpent or dragon eating its own tail.

Hermes formula demonstrates the monistic oneness of the god-man's divine intellect with the  hidden reality above.  In teaching the meaning of the formula to his son Tat he said:

The intellect, O Tat, is drawn from the very substance of God.  In men, this intellect is God, and so some men are gods and their humanity is near to divinity…If man makes right use of (God’s gifts), he differs in no way from the immortals.”  (God and the Knowledge of Reality, Thomas Molnar, p. 78)

The serpent powered chain of being with its' multiple dimensions and life-giving energy systems is a hidden reality that not only powers the universe but reaches into and miraculously bestows life upon lifeless chemicals.  Then after billions of years of evolutionary process it reaches into the psyche, stirring imagination, bringing intellectual and moral perfection (deification) and psychic powers and even awakening pre-human memories of when scientifically enlightened modern man, evolution's most advanced product, was a soulless hominid.

Dr. Molnar writes that illustrations of Hermetic science abound all around the world.  For example, the “Asclepius,” a famous Gnostic text of indefinite origin states,

Man is a magnum miraculum…as though himself God….familiar with the race of demons, of the same origin as he; he despises that part of his nature which is only human, for he has put his hope in the divinity of the other part.” (ibid, p. 78)

It was Renaissance scholars, theologians, and mystics who rediscovered and intensely studied ancient esoteric texts, and then like Pico della Mirandola, argued that occult Cabala and hermetic science is the best proof of the divinity of Christ.    In other words, said Molnar,

“..by the time of the Renaissance the esoteric texts of the first centuries A.D. had acquired in scholarly and humanist circles an unparalleled prestige, confronting as equals the texts held sacred by the church.  In Pico’s estimation, ‘nulla est scientia que nos magis certificet de divinitate Christ quam magia et Cabala’ (there is no science that would prove for us Christ’s divinity better than magic and the Cabala.”  (ibid, pp. 78-79)

Occult science and manipulation by the magician of arcane symbols, numerals, formulas, and knowledge pertaining to the hidden dimension of true reality are inseparably linked in esoteric doctrines.  Therefore, in order for divinity to be proven by way of occult science, the modern Hermetic magician, whether secular or Christian, must manipulate into irrelevance the supernatural dimension and the literal and historic meaning of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo since 'matter' must either pre-exist or have come into being from a Cosmic Egg (Big Bang).  In either scenario the action of the magician results in,

....an absolute although hidden concordance between the lower and the higher worlds, the key of which lends to the magus incalculable powers.” (Salvation through Technology: Creating A Posthuman New Breed, Dr. Martin Erdmann, herescopeblogspot.com, April 23, 2011)

One of the primary goals of the Hermetic magician said Molnar, is separation of the soul from the body (purification), and second, the spiritualization of all matter.     Darwin’s formula supposedly attains the first goal:

“….the doctrine of evolution has swept the world, not on the strength of its scientific merits, but precisely in its capacity as a Gnostic myth. It affirms, in effect, that living things created themselves, which is in essence a metaphysical claim….Thus…evolutionism is a metaphysical doctrine decked out in scientific garb….it is a scientistic myth (that) implicitly denies the transcendent origin of being; for indeed, only after the living creature has been speculatively reduced to an aggregate of particles does Darwinist transformism become conceivable.”  ( Dr. Wolfgang Smith in From Old Gnosticism to New Age I, Alan Morrison, SCP Journal Vol. 28:4-29:1, 2005, pp. 30-31)

The magic way of intellectual and moral transcendence (deification) was made possible by the inventers of theories of spiritual/cosmic evolution.   Molnar writes that travelers on this second highway were characteristically recruited from theology.  Some of these inventers are,

Bergson, Laberthonniere, Le Roy, Blondel, Bloch, Teilhard de Chardin, Heidegger, Bultmann, Karl Rahner, and numerous others…”  (God and the Knowledge of Reality, p. 133)

With Teilhard’s mystical pantheist idea, after billions of years of evolution, matter finally transcended itself resulting in its' transmutation into Christ consciousness.   Now that matter is spiritualized and divine,

The great affair for modern mankind is to break its way out by forcing some threshold of greater consciousness.” Christians should not fear the natural processes of evolution because it brings them inexorably to God and self-deification, “Though frightened for a moment by evolution, the Christian now perceives that what it offers him is…a magnificent means of (being) at one with God…”    (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 590)

Occult Worldview Essentials

The basic foundations of occult worldviews consistently teach the following elements:

1. Monism and evolution: Though there are different forms of monism the common denominator of them all is the idea that the universe and everything in it consists of or is reducible to one substance in process of evolution. (The Coming Darkness, John Ankerberg & John Weldon)

Mystical forms of monism characteristically accept some form of pantheism, as exemplified by for example, Teilhard de Chardin's Hindu pantheist New Religion and Leonard Sweet's Quantum Spirituality based in Teilhard's conceptions. Advaita Hinduism teaches the one ultimate reality is Nirguna Brahman (an impersonal God-force or Void) while Teilhard's system reduces everything to Omega---his version of Brahman.

It is the hidden monistic premise of esoteric evolutionary biology and mystical occult monism that makes them fundamentally anti-Christian and anti-person since man is not created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons but is rather an impersonal aspect of the one substance.

In Dr. Gary North's excellent evaluation of monism, "Unholy Spirits: Occultism and New Age Humanism," he writes that the Word of God teaches a permanent,

"....unbridgeable gap between the ultimate being of God and the derivative being of creatures. There is a Creator-creature distinction (meaning that) men do not partake of God's being...they are not of the same substance as God. There is no more fundamental doctrine than this one. Significantly, in every form of occultism this principle is denied....Satan's old temptation to man hinges on his denial and man's denial of the Creator-creature distinction."  (ibid, pp. 59-61)

2. God is an impersonal hidden reality, an energy field, abyss or void as opposed to God as personal and loving. (John 3:16)

3. Man's true identity is God since he is one with (shares) God's being as opposed to man created in God's image but not sharing the being of God. (Gen. 1:27)

4. Since there is only one impersonal substance, then evil is in harmony with the amoral god-substance or force. In contrast, Scripture teaches that evil operates in opposition to God's holy nature. (1 Peter 1:14, 15; 3:12)

5. Illumination or enlightenment (salvation) is achieved through self-realization (awareness of personal divinity) by various occult spiritist practices such as séances, spells, automatic writing, meditation, hypnosis, Ouija boards, shamanic drumming, Kundalini yoga, channeling, visualization, and mind-altering drugs. Occult salvation is the antithesis of salvation based on the atonement (Christ's suffering and death for sin) and received as a free gift by grace through faith in God and Christ. (John 3:16; 5:24; 6:47; 17:3)

6. Psychic or spiritual powers result from initiation into occult practices (see above) that open the mind to contact with and even possession by spirits.

In contrast, Scripture teaches that spiritual gifts are distinct from and work in opposition to occult psychic powers. They are given by God to His people for service to others. ( 1 Cor. 12:4-11; 14:3)

7. Eternal cyclic incarnation into different bodies over thousands or millions of years or reabsorption (annihilation and/or personal extinction) into the impersonal substance. In opposition, Scripture teaches personal physical resurrection and immortality in either heaven or hell. (Matthew 25:46)

8. A Pelagian view of humanity. Human nature is not fallen but good, thus the possibility for perfection is always present.  Given this outlook, the self-transcendence of humanity becomes a sociological imperative:

At the stage we have reached in scientific research our minds and intelligence will have to surpass themselves and rise to transcendent heights; the human, all-too human, will no longer suffice.” (Mircea Eliade, The Forge and the Crucible: The Origins and  Structures of Alchemy,  Dr. Erdmann)

In monism, whether esoteric evolutionary biology or mystical occult pantheist permutations, the traditional Western Christian ways of thinking and perceiving are rejected because "all is one."  This means there is no ultimate distinction between man and God, Jesus Christ and Satan, male and female, human and nonhuman, true and false, good and evil, moral and immoral, holy and unholy, or right and wrong because "true reality" is beyond the illusory categories associated with the natural (physical) world. Therefore, murder, genocide, rape, sodomy, pederasty, pedophilia, lying, cheating and theft cannot be considered evil if evil itself is in harmony with the hidden true reality.

Equally, while nothing can really be considered evil, so nothing can really be considered good. This means that honesty, integrity, courage, fidelity, and commitment cannot be considered good and worthy for the same reason evil cannot be considered evil.

Finally, there is no such thing as personhood (genuine personality) because true reality (the one substance) is not personal.  In other words, because the One God in three Persons who made all men in His spiritual image, thereby endowing all men with genuine personality(personhood) is not true reality, then ideas of personhood and unalienable rights are delusional.  In fact, since personality is supposedly a hindrance to occult spiritual enlightenment, it must be destroyed.

Humanist rationalism, Hermetic magic, esoteric Cabala, alchemy, Buddhism, reincarnation and karma, naturalism  and other forms of occultism were two sides of the same revival of Renaissance paganism and mystical pantheism underlying the intellectual edifice of modern natural science and evolutionary biology. Thus, as C.S. Lewis argued in his great masterpiece, That Hideous Strength, occultism and humanistic rationalism are not enemies in principle but rather cooperating philosophies that are united against the supernatural God in three Persons, Christianity and Christian civilization.

Lewis underscores this point in “The Abolition of Man:”

“You will even find people who write about the sixteenth century as if Magic were a medieval survival and Science the new thing that came in to sweep it away. Those who have studied the period know better. There was very little magic in the Middle Ages: the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries are the high noon of magic. The serious magical endeavour and the serious scientific endeavour are twins: one was sickly and died, the other strong and throve. But they were twins. They were born of the same impulse. I allow that some (certainly not all) of the early scientists were actuated by a pure love of knowledge. But if we consider the temper of that age as a whole we can discern the impulse of which I speak.”

In conclusion, evolutionary biology symbolizes the deep religious desires of certain men for autonomous self-creation, transcendence and self-redemption, thus are incarnations,

“ …of the ancient, deeply religious endeavor “to become like God” – infinitely wise, omnipotent, autonomous, and immortal.” (Dr. Erdmann)

The Kingdom of Darkness Triumphant: Church and Society

"In this postmodern age many think that no one can know Truth.
It is true that we cannot know truth if there is no revelation from God
."  – Vishal Mangalwadi

Dr. Vishal Mangalwadi (1949-), founder-president of BOMI/Revelation Movement, is an Indian philosopher and social reformer.   He has lectured in over 40 countries and published seventeen books including "The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization!"   Mangalwadi's Revelation Movement exists to re-establish the cultural authority of VERITAS (Truth) because God has revealed Truth in scripture and God has given man the mind and clues to help us discover what He has concealed. Proverbs 25:2.  (RevelationMovement.com)

In a recent e-mail message entitled "The Kingdom of Darkness Encircles North America," Vishal writes that his third visit to North America opened his eyes to the magnitude and the power of a massive force of darkness facing the faithful.  Because darkness has deeply penetrated the Church itself it is hard to estimate how much essential theology and church in North America has been lost.   Nevertheless, there are those who are digging in their heels against the darkness that is rapidly encircling North America.  Likening these truth warriors to Jedi warriors and Hobbits, Vishal said,

"When Luke Skywalker joined the Star Wars saga, he had no idea that he was a Jedi. Nor did the tiny, motley crew that teamed up with him know what they were up against. To mix metaphors, they were little Hobbits, unaware of the importance of their mission."

The Kingdom of Darkness

Darkness is evident in both the devastating loss of God's revealed Truth, moral law and norms in our secular-atheist society and in the failure of Americans, within and without the whole body of the Christian Church,  to restrain their own corrupt passions (James 1:14-15).  Depravity in the guise of special rights and privileges, the myth of evolution as scientific fact, same-sex and kundalini-Holy Spirit equality, the big lie of global warming, paganized Christianity and a long list of destructive freedoms such as unfettered killing as 'choice,' and pornography and sodomy as Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms have become dictatorial both outside of the Church, where 'secular' servants of sin demand all others give up their God-given rights, and within, where 'Christian' servants of sin sweep away the essentials of the faith to make room for their self-centered values resulting in lawless Churches:

Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother. (1 John 3:4-10)

Lawless churches are nothing more than social clubs for servants of sin, thus they,

“…exercise no discernment, enforce no standards, and teach more pop psychology than timeless truth. Naturally, lawless churches are populated with lawless Christians, the greatest absurdity of them all. “What fellowship have righteousness and lawlessness?” 1 Corinthians 6:14 (How can I walk North and South at the same time?," Lawless Christians, Dan Popp, Renew America, Mar. 10, 2012)

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987), a noted German theologian who counseled and delivered thousands of people suffering from demonic bondage in its various forms throughout the world argues that sin cuts a person off from God. Sin opens the door to demonic oppression and possession seen in relation to psychological distortions having the following predominant characteristics:  hard egoism, uncongenial dark nature, violent temper, belligerence, meanness, abnormal sexuality, conscious atheism; rebellious, bigoted attitudes toward Christ and God, and destructive, murderous rages. (Occult ABC, Koch, pp. 266-282)

Cutting Edge Minisitry David Bay identifies the ‘values’ of the lawless as Satanic, and adds that lawless Americans at every level of society, both in and out of the church, have embraced Satanic values with no conscious awareness that they have done so.  When a people believe in nothing higher than 'self', they make personal selfishness, intellectual arrogance, irrational feelings, lying, covetousness, physical lust, hate and envy their gods.  The elevation of these Satanic values produces in them other strong desires: for power over others, for material possessions, pleasure, privilege, status, star-power, and wealth as well as powerful sexual urges that must be satisfied at any cost, no matter who or what might be harmed.  (Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan, Bay, Cutting Edge Ministries)

The Church is the only element in society with the moral authority and the availing remedy to counteract such manifest evil, but for the most part America's Christian church has been rendered impotent.   Having compromised and conformed itself in one way or another to our pagan culture and dictates of science/evolution it is no longer salt and light, thus is worthy only of being spewed out.

Malachi Martin, author of "Hostage to the Devil: the Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary Americans," describes the spiritually desolate condition of the compromising church:

"Among the general population of Catholics and Christians of other denominations, large numbers of people no longer learn even so basic a prayer as the Our Father.   In churches and parochial schools alike, the subject of Hell is avoided, as one Midwestern priest put it, in order not to put people on a 'guilt trip.'  The idea of sin is likewise avoided, according to the same source, in order not to do 'irreparable damage to what has been taught for the past fifteen years." (p. xvi)

Fearing rejection by our paganized culture and scientific/evolutionary establishment, spiritually dead churches refuse to contaminate what is termed the 'rational' with the essentials of the faith necessary both for salvation and for the recognition of evil.  And without the grace that is born of true faith,

"....Satan does what he does best---he ceases to exist in the eyes of those who do not see." (ibid)

Consequently, a favorable climate exists for the occurrence of demonic oppression and possession among the general population:

"Possession among the general population is so clear that it is attested to daily by competent social and psychological experts, who for the most part, appear to have no 'religious bias.'  Our cultural desolation---a kind of agony of aimlessness coupled with a dominant self-interest---is documented for us in the disintegration of our families.  In the break-up of our educational system.  In the disappearance of publicly accepted norms of decency in language, dress and behavior.  In the lives of our youth, everywhere deformed by stunning violence and sudden death, by teenage pregnancy; by drug and alcohol addiction; by disease; by suicide; by fear....Whether spoken or acted out without explanation, the dominant question of the younger generation...is, What can you do for me?  What can my parents, my friends, my acquaintances, my enemies, my government, my country, do for me?" (pp. xiii-xiv)

America is enshrouded by a suffocating darkness that has fully penetrated our society and  compromising church.  Dr. Carl Raschke, Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Denver, concurs.  His chilling book “Painted Black” takes you through the minds of the deviant and murderous and then explores the growing darkness sweeping through our hometowns.  He  concludes that the decadence, pornography, heavy metal music, drug culture, fantasy role-playing games, cruelty, mass murders, criminality, the ‘new religions’ and upsurge in overt Satanism in American culture have certain social and spiritual ties that bind them together, revealing that they are part of a similar dark spiritual genus enabled by mystification of the most corrupt passions and secular values:

Satanism is but the spiritual Frankenstein created by a social order that has attempted to sustain itself without God.” (Satanism and Witchcraft: The Occult and the West — Part 6, Dr. John Ankerberg and Dr. John Weldon)

"...after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death." James 1: 15

A vast, interpenetrating, malevolent darkness covers the West. Within its' shadow an obviously insane America implodes as a large part of the church falls away.  Please pray that our Lord will cleanse, renew and strengthen His church and build up a force for spiritual and cultural resistance and renewal.    America desperately needs courageous truth warriors: men and women who will choose to stand and fight the forces of darkness for the soul of the West.

Personhood: Why the Constitution is a Great Spiritual Doctrine

In the American Dictionary of the English Language 1828, Noah Webster defines a person as, "An individual human being consisting of body and soul..."

The term 'person' originated in Christian theologies developmental struggle to comprehend the nature and experience of the transcendent, personal Triune God:

"The derivative concept of human personhood is a gift of the Christian faith to culture…” (Stephen P. Stratton, Chapter 14, p. 247, The Self, Paul Vitz & Susan M. Felch, Editors)

Building off of this unique concept, St. Augustine (AD 354-430) affirmed that as all men are the spiritual image-bearers of the transcendent, personal One God in three Persons then it logically follows that each human person is a trinity of being — of soul/spirit and body (physical matter).

The noblest part of the soul is spirit (mind, conscience, will). Spirit is the unique property that distinguishes soul from the material body in which it is fully embedded. It is immortal, self-aware and can will, meaning it can freely choose to deceive or not deceive, to lie or not lie.

In Christian thought, a person is a spirit and personality is the total individuality of the spirit. Without spirit there is no person. It is on this historically unique Christian definition of person that America’s Constitutional Republic is grounded, making America’s founding documents great spiritual documents delineating the God-given spiritual property and temporal rights of “we the people.”

In affirmation,  more than eighty years ago President Calvin Coolidge said in a speech delivered on the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, July 5, 1926:

"Democracy is Christ's government in church and state... Here was the doctrine of equality, popular sovereignty, and the substance of the theory of inalienable rights....When we take all these circumstances into consideration, it is but natural that the first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence should open with a reference to Nature's God and should close...with an appeal to the Supreme Judge of the world and an assertion of a firm reliance on Divine Providence...In its main feature the Declaration of Independence is a great spiritual document. Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man....They have their source and roots in the religious convictions. They belong to the unseen world. " (Backfired: A Nation Born for Religious Tolerance No Longer Tolerates Religion, William J. Federer, pp. 270-271)

Whether the Founders were individually Christian or not, there was among them a strong Christian consensus that finds some of its greatest spiritual and moral expression in the scholarly works ofSamuel Rutherford in “Lex Rex” (1644) and in the writings of the 18th century jurist William Blackstone.

Rutherford reasoned that since all people are sinners, then no person ---whether king, prime minister, jurist, bishop, pope, pastor, president, rap artist, or diva for example---is superior to any other person. This means that no person is above the law.  All  people are subject to the law without exception, thus all individuals---Obama, Holder, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, John Kerry, Supreme Court justices, ‘gays,’ illegals, abortionists, perverse sex-educators, and cowardly GOP insiders must recognize that they are sinners under the transcendent Law of God.

Blackstone greatly influenced early American understanding of the Triune God, the Bible, Law and nature. He taught that since the One God in three Persons is the omnipotent Creator who works and governs the affairs of men then all law should be consistent with His Revelation in the Bible. No law should be passed that is contrary to the higher law of God.

Furthermore, as all men are created spiritual equals in the eyes of God, then life, worth, dignity and other unalienable rights are conferred upon each human person at conception.   For example, freedom of religion and speech are the temporal manifestations of a person’s God-given spiritual property of conscience and reason.

In "Property," published in The National Gazette on March 29, 1792, James Madison clearly defines the meaning of a person’s God-given spiritual property, some of its’ temporal manifestations and the meaning and intent of just government as opposed to unjust government:

"He has a property....in his religious opinions, and in the profession and practice dictated by them."  "He has a property...in his opinions and the free communication of them."  "He has an equal property in the free use of his faculties and free choice of the objects on which to employ them." "He has property very dear to him in the safety and liberty of his person."

Property is,

"....a man's land, or merchandize, or money (and)  as a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights. Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties or his possessions."

Government is instituted to protect property of every sort:

"This being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures to every man, whatever is his own." (Samuel Rutherford, Lex Rex; lexrex.com)

Vishal Mangalwadi, India's foremost Christian scholar affirms that the Christian gift  of personhood gave birth to the "belief in the unique dignity of human beings," and this is,

"...the force that created Western civilization, where citizens do not exist for the state but the state exists for the individuals. Even kings, presidents, prime ministers, and army generals cannot be allowed to trample upon an individual and his or her rights." (Truth and Transformation: A Manifesto for Ailing Nations, pp. 12-13)

The Constitution therefore, recognizes the divine nature of man's creation, that man is a person endowed by his personal Creator with spiritual property, a divine right to life and liberty, and the means of acquiring and possessing property. Hence our Republic recognizes Law is unchangeable because the Creator of "we the people" is the eternally unchanging Lawgiver:

"It is sufficiently obvious, that persons and property are the two great subjects on which Governments are to act; and that the rights of persons, and the rights of property, are the objects, for the protection of which Government was instituted. These rights cannot well be separated." (James Madison, Speech at the Virginia Convention, December 2, 1829)

"How does one determine whether a law is just or unjust? A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law." (Martin Luther King, Excerpts from his Letter from the Birmingham Jail, Apr. 16, 1963)

In keeping with Christian thought, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin connect personhood, virtue and self-control with individual freedom:

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." Benjamin Franklin, quoted in Born Liberal Raised Right, p. 15)

Conversely, they connect corruption, anarchy, and barbarism with man's sin nature:

"The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If "Thou shalt not covet" and "Thou shalt not steal" were not commandments of Heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society before it can be civilized or made free." (John Adams, A Defense of the American Constitutions, 1787, patriotpost.us)

The Fall of America

Contemporary de-christianized America is no longer the 'freest, most enlightened civilization,' nor are our morally corrupt leaders and their "bought and paid for" voting constituents a God-honoring virtuous people capable of self-government.

Erwin Lutzer writes that our Constitutional Republic's Christian foundations throughout our government, education, media, and American law have been undermined by two very powerful corrosives.

First there is the evolutionary thinking, Darwinism in particular, that has swept our culture and penetrated deeply within the whole body of the Christian Church.

In destroying the foundations of Christianity, Darwinism in particular and evolutionary thinking in general, has reduced “we the people” to conscious products of evolution,  thereby destroying the unique concept of human personhood and individual spiritual property:

"Darwinism came at the desired time; Darwin's theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma." (Anton Pannekoek, "Marxism and Darwinism," translated by Nathan Weiser. Transcribed for the Internet by Jon Muller, Chicago, Charles H. Kerr & Company Co-operative Copyright, 1912 by Charles H. Kerr & Company)

By 1870 Christopher Langdell, dean of Harvard School of Law was teaching that the nihilistic principles of evolution must be applied to the written opinion of judges. Lutzer points out that the conclusion was inescapable.   Law was no longer what the Constitution said it was but what judges said it was:

In other words, there was no longer an objective base; the absolutes dissolved along with the supposed demise of the Creator.” (pp. 65-66)

Evolutionary thinking, whether secular or theological rejects miraculous Special Creation (the six-day Genesis account ex nihilo) together with the Fall and teaches instead an inverted anti-creation account positing billions of years of evolutionary process eventuating in life arising from primordial matter, man from lower creatures and an eternally expanding cosmos.

This upside-down view leads to a philosophy of moral relativism because if men were once something else, a genderless blob of matter and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are we going to become something else–maybe divine supermen, god-men, super robots or cosmic beings—-but nothing can be said about transgender, ‘gay,’ and lesbianism since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter generated by a Big Bang which may or may not involve an impotent God shaped and limited by the theologians who are His creators.

With regard to soul/spirit, if life arose from chemicalsor a blob of matter and then billions of years later man evolved from lower life-forms, then his rational nature, his soul, differs not qualitatively but only quantitatively from the beasts.  Like beasts, man is not a person but a creature of the earth.  Like them he has no spirit—free will, higher mental faculties, and conscience.  He is a fleshy androgynous robot or hominid whose brain is organized by the genome and the genome shaped by natural selection.

Worse, all naturalist conceptions, whether secular atheist or theological, ultimately lack a source for life, consciousness, soul, and personhood as all are merely different expressions of anti-human nihilism which makes man equal to or lower than the nonhuman.

This serves as a license for all manner of crimes against humanity, especially the weakest, the hated, envied, despised and inconvenient.  For example, in paganized America tens of millions of unborn humans have already been liquidated, our youth and now our military sexually perverted and mind conditioned, and our Constitutional rights trashed while during the 20th century in excess of 160,000,000 human weeds, useless eaters, and human dinosaurs were brutally murdered in one way or another by two evolutionary neo-pagan regimes: the Godless pagan Soviet Union under Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin and the occult pagan National Socialist Germany under Hitler.

Today, natural science and evolutionary thinking are taken for granted throughout the college curriculum, just as it is in all aspects of modern thought and experience, especially within the progressive liberal community. Evolution not only undergirds biological and earth sciences, but also Freudian and Jungian psychology, anthropology, law, sociology, politics, economics, the media, arts, medicine, and all other academic disciplines as well as occult New Age spirituality and 'Christian' theological permutations such as evolutionary theism and the progressive creationism popularized by astronomer Hugh Ross.

Second, liberal pantheist theology and its’ primary doctrine evolution has stripped the Bible of its miraculous, historical and literal elements, thereby allowing it to be considered as one book of myths among many. No longer is it generally believed that the Bible, especially the Genesis account is the objective revelation of God, thus man is not a sinner, neither is he a person because he is not the spiritual image bearer of God. In the end, theological liberalism is nothing more than nihilistic humanism in theological dress. (ibid, p. 67)

Today, Darwin’s theory touted as 'evolutionary fact' has finally reached saturation point in American government, law, media, education, healthcare, psychiatry, and increasingly within the whole body of the Church. This is why apostasy, atheism, agnosticism, occult paganism, suicide, lawlessness, pornography, drug use, mass murder, decadence, sodomy, abortion, and euthanasia have increased exponentially throughout America and the world.

It is also why America’s depraved, power-hungry, self-worshipping left-right ruling class has nearly succeeded in leveraging itself into the position of supreme law-givers and mind-and-conscience shapers.

America's Dying Soul

"No one needs to see films such as The Wolf of Wall Street or American Hustle to know that America is amputating its soul. Those who remember post-Christian Nazi Germany are grieving. They look at America’s demoralized church and ask: Can these bones live? (Ezekiel 37).    (Vishal Mangalwadi, founder-president of BOMI/Revelation Movement, is an Indian philosopher and social reformer and author of The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization)

The soul of America is being amputated under the onslaught of neo-pagan Darwinism and theological liberalism with the following consequences:

1.The abandonment of our transcendent Triune God means abandonment of His Law together with the unique Christian definition of person and everything built upon it---spiritual property, unalienable rights, and morality---thereby turning our founding documents into useless pieces of paper.

2. Abandonment of immutable truth and absolute morality means that egoistic sinful men are the measure of all things. This is why our so-called political leadership, opinion and culture shapers, jurists, academics, bureaucracy and increasing numbers of theologians are self-righteous hypocrites, liars, crazies, and psychopaths. Many of them believe they are evolving into supermen, transcended masters and gods.

3. Abandonment of our exclusive Christian worldview has allowed our nation to disintegrate into moral and religious pluralism, otherwise known as multiculturalism. Historically, pluralism has been a sign that tectonic change is on the horizon. In this case, it presages America's transformation from its' Christian heritage to Sharia, paganism and occult pantheist New Age, known politically as Agenda 21 but really communism in a green dress.

4.  Powerful, influential occult New Agers honeycombed within the UN, non-governmental agencies, and at every level of our government, academia, entertainment, media, and elsewhere, have been working towards this sea-change for a very long time now. In their eyes, the disintegration of America not only heralds the death of the hated Old Guard but the long-awaited quantum leap in evolution, the catastrophic chaos that utterly destroy the old order and usher in the utopian 'golden age' of Aquarius.

The Way Forward

The gradual abasement of the Soul from Truth to Falsehood (is) by the abuse of her freedom of Choice." Early Church Father Athanasius

Because of the triumph of evolutionary thinking and liberal pantheist theology, vast numbers ofspiritually darkened, morally debased Americans either do not know they are God’s spiritual image-bearers or because they have embraced evolutionary materialism or pantheism and reincarnation do not want to know. Either way, this is the real source of the spiritual cancer destroying our nation and freedoms that politics absolutely cannot fix.

The Way is still open however:

"Thou hast brought forth, O Lord, my soul from hell: thou hast saved me from them that go down into the pit." Psalm 30:3

Ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn, who repented and returned to the Christian faith and his personhood (spiritual being) in the Gulag, sets out a spiritual way forward:

“…the primary key to our being or non-being resides in each individual heart, in (its) preference for specific good or evil…this (is) the most reliable key we have. The social theories that promised so much have demonstrated their bankruptcy, leaving us at a dead end. The free people of the West could reasonably have been expected to realize that they are beset by numerous freely nurtured falsehoods, and not to allow lies to be foisted upon them so easily. All attempts to find a way out of the plight of today’s world are fruitless unless we direct our consciousness, in repentance to the Creator of all. Without this, no exit will be illumined, and we shall seek it in vain….We must…recognize the horror perpetrated not by some outside force, not by class or national enemies, but within each of us individually, and within every society. This is especially true of a free and highly developed society, for here in particular we have surely brought everything upon ourselves, of our own free will. We ourselves, in our daily unthinking selfishness, are pulling tight the noose (and) we can propose only a determined quest for the warm hand of God, which we have so rashly and self-confidently spurned. Only in this way can our eyes be opened to the errors of this unfortunate twentieth century and our hands be directed to setting them right.” (Life Under the Lidless Eye, pp. 38-39, Lee Penn, SCP Journal, Vol. 37:1-37:2, 2013)

In his 1974 essay “Repentance and Self-Limitation in the Life of Nations,” Solzhenitsyn explains that the cure begins quite simply with,

“…..repentance and the search for our own errors and sin. We must stop blaming everyone else (and) always claiming that we alone are in the right. Repentance is the first bit of firm ground underfoot, the only one from which we can go forward not to fresh hatreds but to concord. Repentance is the only starting ground for spiritual growth. For each and every individual. And every trend of social thought.” (ibid)

Are You Guilty of Blaspheming Our New 'Master's' Science Idol?

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.

Methodological Naturalism & Evolution: Signs of Man's Fall into Idolatry and Paganism

"Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall." Proverbs 16:18

In "Against the Heathen," early Church Father Athanasius reveals that pride and haughtiness preceded man's fall into idolatry and paganism. A haughty spirit led them to make light of the higher order knowledge of God, and deliberately disregarding what they knew to be true they began to seek in preference knowledge and other things in the lower or natural dimension. Thus they fell into worship of self, sexual pleasures and acquisition of status and things to the living God and higher knowledge.

The truth as to evil said Athanasius,

"....is that it originates, and resides, in the perverted choice of the darkened soul" which, "materialized by forgetting God" and engrossed in lower things, "makes them into gods," and thereby "descends into a hopeless depth of delusion and superstition," whereby "they ceased to think that anything existed beyond what is seen, or that anything was good save things temporal and bodily; so turning away and forgetting that she was in the image of the good God, she no longer... sees God the Word after whose likeness she is made; but having departed from herself, imagines and feigns what is not (and then) advancing further in evil, they came to celebrate as gods the elements and the principles of which bodies are composed...." (Against the Heathen, New Advent)

Having descended into self-deception and superstition they imagined that "all that exists" is the natural dimension; void, primordial matter, animated natural powers, forces, energies and deterministic laws, all of which they celebrated and attributed miraculous powers to.  This lower order knowledge became the basis of both natural science and natural religion. So for example, with the Egyptians' self-created Sun-God Ra, the divine abyss or One Substance out of which he evolved is Nu — primordial matter:

"I came into being from primordial matter...I made all the forms under which I appeared by means of (or out of) the god-soul which I raised up out of Nu (i.e., the primeval abyss of water.) (The Long War Against God, Dr. Henry Morris, p. 243)

This is pagan naturalism, or in modern terminology, scientific materialism and/or methodological naturalism. Like the ancient pagan seedbed out of which it emerged, naturalism teaches a one-dimensional view of reality that excludes the supernatural dimension: the living Holy God, soul/spirit; angels, heaven and hell.   Only the natural dimension exists, thus evolutionary materialist Dr. Scott Todd wrote in the science journal 'Nature:'

"Even if all the data point to an intelligent designer, such a hypothesis is excluded from science because it is not naturalistic." (Naturalism in the Light of Reality, Robert Gurney, creation.com, June 14, 2012)

Early last century, Hugh Elliot triumphantly described our age of natural science as an age of materialism:

Ours is a scientific age, and it may be said with truth that we are all materialists now.” (Darwin Day in America, John G. West, xiv)

Materialism is of the pagan worldview of monism held in common by pantheism and spiritualism and dates back to pagan antiquity and was or is taught by all non-biblical thought systems including Baha’i, Scientology, Eastern Hinduism, Buddhism and Mormonism. 

Joseph Smith taught that matter is eternal and the Mormon God, having no power to create ex nihilo, merely reorganizes eternally existing elements:

 “Since Mormons believe that the elements are eternal, it follows that they deny the ex nihilo creation.” (Encyclopedia of Mormonism 1:400) 

As the constant companion of materialist systems is evolution, it is no surprise that Smith espoused evolutionary thinking:

 “…you have got to learn how to be Gods yourselves…the same as all Gods have done before you, namely by going from one small degree to another, and from a small capacity to a great one…” (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pp. 345-47)

Greek Stoics and Epicureans were materialist monists and these two schools of natural science and evolution held the ancient world of thought well into the Roman Empire.  Epicureanism reigns supreme in our own ‘age of science’ through methodological naturalism and/or scientific materialism.

The pagan philosopher Epicurus (342-270 B.C.) believed in an infinite number of parallel universes or multiverse theories in the words of contemporary pagan materialists such as Royal Astronomer Lord Martin Rees.

Neo-pagan materialism is an ancient superstition revised and revamped for our “age of science.”  Its’ nihilistic view holds that everything is a property of matter in motion, thus it teaches that life and even rational life must have evolved from eternally existing matter or non-life bearing chemicals. Not only is mind (spirit) a property of matter but earth is one entire organism whose organs are the various races and nations of men.  (Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics, Chapter II: The Constitution of Man as a Political Organism)

Not only is the earth alive and evolving upward on evolution’s magical escalator to the mystical, magical Omega, but so too are the Bible, Christianity, history and society, for they also are living entities in a continuous state of change. And man? In a modified conception of ancient Greek Atomism’s dehumanizing view of man, dialectical materialism states that man is nothing but:

“…a colonial aggregation of cells,” and to “consider him an individual would be an error.”

Man--the aggregate of cells-- is nothing but an extension of society, history, and earth. (ibid, Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics)

 Scientific materialists from Julien de la Mettrie (1709-51) and Paul Henri Thiery to Baron D’Holbach (1723-89) all agreed that mind (soul/spirit) is the property of matter in motion and man nothing but a machine. La Mettrie speculated that the rational life of machine-man is entirely determined by physical causes that run the gamut from raw meat, to climate, blood circulation, and gender. Genetic inheritance, posits la Mettrie, causes machine-man to think bad thoughts and commit crime. (Darwin Day in America, John G. West, pp. 16-18)

This view casts parents, skin color, gender, political affiliation, and even ‘thoughts’ into the role of “first cause” and would later manifest in the belief that State ‘experts,’ or Hillary’s “village” experts should have the ‘scientific’ control over and the politically correct programming of the minds of children lest they think wrong thoughts and commit genetically-caused hate crime such as homophobia, racism, xenophobia and conservatism.

Even worse: they may commit the blasphemy of being anti-scientific and evolution.

Pierre Simon Laplace (1749-1827) viewed scientific materialism as not only the pursuit of God-like omniscience but of the Holy Grail itself-—power to create a New Man.

If an intelligence could grasp,

 “…at a given instant...all the forces by which nature is animated” proclaimed Laplace, it could devise a mathematical formula that would predict everything that would ever happen, and “nothing would be uncertain, and the future, like the past, would be open to its eyes.”

Scientists should reduce everything in the universe to mechanical laws that could be expressed in terms of mathematics, advised Laplace, for the promise of such knowledge was incredible power...even over life and mind itself. (ibid, p. 20)

Herbert Spencer, Fechner, Lotze, Wundt, and pantheist Ernst Haeckel, inventor of the scientism dictum-—ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny-—all agreed that life and mind are properties of matter. Haeckel moreover imagined ether to be the primitive life-making substance which, as was the case with the primitive fire of the Stoics, changed one part of itself into inert mass while the other part became the active evolutionary principle. Today, many scientists routinely resort to Haeckel’s postulate without ever inquiring into its mystical pantheist implications.

Haeckel would later write,

Pantheism teaches that God and the world are one...pantheism is...an advanced conception of nature (and) a polite form of atheism.” The truth of pantheism, confessed Haeckel, “lies in its destruction of the dualist antithesis of God...” The godless world system being constructed, said Haeckel, “substantially agrees with the monism or pantheism of the modern scientist.” (Monism, Ernst Haeckel, www.pantheist.net/)

During the century to follow, Charles Darwin (1809-82) helped spread new pagan materialism/methodological naturalism to the masses. As Stephen Jay Gould argues,

Darwin applied a consistent philosophy of materialism to his interpretation of nature, “and “the ground of all existence; mind, spirit, and God (are reduced to) neural complexity.” (ibid, Darwin Day, p. 41)

Darwin received the idea of evolution from his pantheist grandfather Erasmus Darwin. However, neither man is the originator of evolution.  Ancient pagans are.  This is the conclusion reached by Henry Fairfield Osborn, longtime director of the American Museum of Natural History.  In the introduction to his history of evolutionism Osborn wrote:   

When I began the search for anticipations of the evolutionary theory…I was led back to the Greek natural philosophers and I was astonished to find how many of the pronounced and basic features of the Darwinian theory were anticipated even as far back as the seventh century B.C.” (From the Greeks to Darwin, p. xi)

In his updated version of ancient pagan nature science and evolutionary thinking, Darwin argues that natural selection and the laws of heredity (mystical energies and deterministic fates) acting on matter produced mind, morality, and civilization. By describing how (mystical) natural mechanisms caused the complexity of life to emerge from matter, Darwin helped transform neo-pagan materialism from a fantastically bizarre tale told by power-mad Prometheans on the fringe of society to a hallowed scientism principle enshrined and worshipped by modern methodological materialists, like-minded ‘scientifically enlightened’ Westerners and evolutionary theists such as John Polkinghorne. 

Having discarded the supernatural dimension (higher things of God), Polkinghorne has recast supernatural Christianity as a natural theology grounded in evolution and a sophisticated conception of dual-aspect monism that reduces God to the role of engine starter, meaning God lit the fuse of the Big Bang.  

 Social Darwinism, Progressivism, Socialism, Marxist Communism, Nazism, Secular Humanism, Transhumanism and today’s holistic green pantheism and New Age conceptions of spiritual communism are developed out of scientific materialism.

Of these, Marxist Communism (dialectical materialism) is considered to be the most highly developed philosophy of materialism. It rests on three fundamental metaphysical presuppositions:

1. Dialectical Matter: The Ultimate One Substance which, though non-living, non-intelligent, and non-conscious, nevertheless somehow possesses the emergent properties of life, mind, consciousness, and soul.  Dialectical matter is ‘divine’ ‘thinks’ ‘chooses,’ and ‘acts.’

2. Evolution: Since Marxist dialectic requires a theory with clashes (thesis and antithesis) and leaps (synthesis), Marxist oriented scientists and like-minded thinkers have all but abandoned vulgar Darwinism and instead embraced punctuated equilibrium:

Many people confound dialectic with the theory of evolution,” noted G. Plekhanov. “Dialectic is, in fact, a theory of evolution. But it differs profoundly from the vulgar (Darwinian) theory of evolution.” (Fundamental Problems of Marxism, 1929, p. 145)

3. Big Bang/Spontaneous Generation: An offshoot of specifically Darwinian thought accepted unreservedly by Marxists as their dialectic requires a strictly materialist explanation for the origin of life from non-living matter. In the words of M.A. Leonov:

Marxist philosophical materialism remains beyond all doubt that at some time or other in the remote past, life must have arisen from non-living matter.” (Outline of Dialectical Materialism, 1948, p. 494) 

The Unresolvable Problem: the Origin of Life

In modern ‘scientific’ terms, the idea that life emerged from spontaneously generated brute matter in much the same way as Ra spontaneously created himself from primordial matter is called abiogenesis.   

However, abiogenesis is such an embarrassment that today some methodological naturalists such as SETI researcher Paul Davies and Francis Crick, co-discoverer of the DNA molecule, have abandoned it in favor of panspermia.  Panspermia is the ridiculous notion that life on earth was accidentally seeded by meteorites or perhaps by highly evolved space brothers who for billions of years have been guiding the evolution of men.  This notion was favored by Arthur C. Clarke in his science fiction novel, “Childhood’s End.”  A variation on this theme was advanced recently by Davies who has written seriously about the possibility of “alien bioengineering.”  (An Alien Code Close to Home: Seeking ET Beyond the Radio Silence, Astrobiology Magazine, Jeremy Hsu, 10/27/2011) 

Equally silly is Francis Crick’s theory called “directed panspermia,” the notion that life on earth began when space brothers sent a rocket ship containing spores to seed the earth.  Crick admits however that his theory only pushes the unresolvable problem of the origin of life out into deep space: 

This scenario still leaves open the question of who designed the designers (aliens) ---how did life originally originate?” (Life Itself: Its Origin and Nature, Crick, 1981) 

Methodological naturalism (materialist monism) and evolutionary conceptions are not signs of higher order thinking lending itself to greater heights of development but rather of the fall of Western and American civilization into the lower order knowledge of paganism that reappeared in the heart of Christendom during the Renaissance. 

In “The Abolition of Man” (1974) C.S. Lewis points out that the Renaissance reawakened a magical view of the world closely connected with pagan Gnostic sectarianism, Hermetic magic, astrology, Eastern pantheism and alchemical scientism.  Accompanying all of this was evolution, occultism, Epicureanism, reincarnation and karma.

Evolution is both the antithesis of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and the primary doctrine of both Eastern pantheism and Western scientific materialism, and early on Lewis understood that both movements were merely two sides of the same pagan revival.  Thus he argued that pantheism and materialism are not enemies in principle but rather cooperating philosophies united against the supernatural Holy God, His Revelation, creation ex nihilo, unchanging truth and moral law, and Christian-based civilization. 

What this means is that methodological naturalism, evolution, abiogenesis, chance, natural selection, multiverse and panspermia theories are but seven contemporary adaptations of the ancient pagan idolatry into which our ancestors fell.  These seven are just a few examples of a whole host of fallacies derived from modern natural science and evolutionary thinking that have permeated the post-Christian West and American society giving birth to a ‘new’ pagan religion of evolutionary science and natural theology dressed in Christian terminology.

Pride goes before a fall, thus like our pagan ancestors proud naturalists have forgotten that this world, the entire cosmos-—its elements, dark matter, quarks and all else-—is passing away and will ultimately be subjected to a cleansing fire just prior to its renewal. In this light methodological naturalism and its primary doctrine evolution is but fallacious lower order knowledge of this world and cosmos in its present but passing state and brings no comfort to the soul. It cannot save and deliver the soul.

It is a tragic sign of our inverted age that lower order knowledge is elevated over ‘higher order knowledge that saves’----Christian theology in general and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in particular.

Our Savior warned us to strive to enter in at the strait gate (Luke 13: 24) and only the higher order knowledge of our Lord will allow us to enter in at that gate.

(2 Thes. 2:11) Strong Delusion in Our Age of Scientism and Evolution

Almost thirty years ago, two well-respected social science scholars, William Sims Bainbridge and Rodney Stark, found themselves alarmed by what they saw as a rising tide of irrationalism, superstition and occultism--- channeling cults, spirit familiars, Wicca, Satanists, goddess worshippers, 'gay' shamans, and other such occult madness — at every level of society, even unto the highest corridors of power. Like many scientists, they were equally concerned by Christian opposition to naturalistic evolution.

As is common in the science community, Bainbridge and Stark assumed the cause of these social pathologies were somehow due to fundamentalism, their term for authentic Christian theism. Yet to their credit, the research they undertook to discover the cause was conducted both scientifically and with great integrity. What they found was so startling that it caused them to re-evaluate their attitude toward Christian theism. Their findings led them to say:

"It would be a mistake to conclude that fundamentalists oppose all science (when in reality they but oppose) a single theory (that) directly contradicts the bible. But it would be an equally great mistake to conclude that religious liberals and the irreligious possess superior minds of great rationality, to see them as modern personalities who have no need of the supernatural or any propensity to believe unscientific superstitions. On the contrary...they are much more likely to accept the new superstitions. It is the fundamentalists who appear most virtuous according to scientific standards when we examine the cults and pseudo-sciences proliferating in our society today." ("Superstitions ,Old and New," The Skeptical Inquirer (formerly The Zetetic), Vol. IV, No. 4; Summer, 1980, pp. 18, 23, 26, 28, 30)

In more detail they observed that authentic ‘born again’ Christians are far less likely to accept cults and pseudoscientific beliefs while the irreligious (i.e., atheists, pagans, secular humanists, occult New Age, our left-right Ruling Class) and liberalized Christians are open to unscientific notions.  In fact, these two groups are most favorable toward occultism, leading Bainbridge and Stark to conclude their startling findings with this dire warning:

"Those who hope that a decline in traditional religion would inaugurate a new Age of Reason ought to think again....Apparently, when Christianity loses its grip on large numbers of people, deviant religious alternatives arise, and get hold of some of the unchurched... Persons with no religious affiliation are often among the first to toy with novel or exotic supernatural notions and are not the secular rationalists we might want to think them. Cults flourish precisely where the conventional churches are weakest...(also), numbers of unchurched people seek private contact with the supernatural......a further decline in the influence of conventional religion may not inaugurate a scientific Age of Reason but might instead open the floodgates for a bizarre new Age of Superstition." (ibid)

The real measure of one’s worldview resides in how close to reality it conforms.   What Bainbridge and Stark discovered to their utter shock was that authentic Christian theism, which includes the Apostolic Tradition, conforms most closely to reality while modern scientism and evolutionary thinking tied to naturalism, irreligious and liberal Christian assumptions does not.  Worse, it has trapped their minds within a psychic cage, an incredibly powerful idolatrous delusion that has been pervasive in the West and America since the eighteenth century.

 The strong delusion emerged during the Renaissance when Christians at the highest levels of Church and society had turned back to the ancient occult Wisdom Traditions flooding into Christendom at that time. Then it worked through the mystic Joachim of Fiore and other neo-Gnostics like Hegel, Auguste Comte, Marx, Darwin and Teilhard de Chardin to change time through the inversion of the order of history. In our own time it has so thoroughly captured the minds of modern Westerners and Americans that they are no longer able to conceive of an original good creation that has fallen because evolution has convinced them to think of everything in the past as consisting of apelike cavemen and the superstitious primitivism from which they, the evolved ones, have ascended on high.  The sweeping acceptance of evolution has,

"....persuaded people to think of everything in nature as the fruit of a gradual growth rather than an original creation." The sweeping acceptance of evolutionary thinking means that it is "now difficult if not impossible for an educated man to conceive of a primitive revelation such as traditional Christianity taught, or even of an original natural religion from which men had declined." This difficulty arises because "in an evolving world, perfection obviously lay, not in the past, but in the future." (Religion and Rise of Skepticism, Frank Baumer, p. 147)

So complete has the transformation of consciousness been that the spirit of delusion has successfully inverted the order of creation and reversed the direction of Biblical theism, thereby recasting Jesus as a mere man and the Church Fathers as lower order primitives ,who rather than viewing the Genesis account as myth and poetry as today's 'enlightened' theologians see it, actually believed that the Genesis account, particularly the first three books, are Divinely inspired text that tells of actual historic events and people that must be correctly understood and accepted as truth even while explaining that poetic and anthropomorphic statements are not to be taken literally but understood symbolically.

With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by evolution, the evolutionarily-enlightened now believe that Lucifer is not the fallen devil nor have men fallen from perfection but instead are gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual and moral perfection. Self-perfecting man no longer needs the living, Holy God as the idea of "conscious evolution" means he can save himself, and perhaps even attain god-hood.

The English moral philosopher Mary Midgley (b. 1919) synthesized the strong delusion into the Escalator Myth, a humanist anthropolatrous dream that has encouraged man to worship himself as god.  Humanist sages, from Comte through Julian Huxley to more recent fellow travelers have steadily encouraged us to build up,

“…our appreciation of the human race into a full-scale edifice of self-worship.  Science itself has (become) a central shrine within this temple….Thus progress (smoothly dove-tailed with evolution) has increasingly appeared as an escalator, powered by our own remarkable abilities and bearing us---perhaps with cybernetic additions and perhaps becoming immortal---reliably on towards a distant and mysterious Omega Point….So vast is the scale of this dream that no actual downturn in human affairs has yet really managed to dent it.” (All Too Human, Mary Midgley, theguardian.com, Dec. 2008)

In this grand unfolding dream, history gradually progresses upward from nonliving matter to the ape-man, then to animism, then polytheism followed by monotheism and thence to science and evolution, which finally liberated men from the gods they had created in their distant primitive past.  Having ascended to higher-order thinking man is now free to make God over in his own image and believe that only the scientific and evolutionary-minded are the real adults, the higher-order elite-thinkers, the Gnostikoi who ‘know’ that the world is billions of years old because the high priests of scientism (New Oracles of Delphi) have revealed this ‘truth’ to them.  All others, especially despicable “fundamentalist” Christian theists who refuse to accept evolution and the revelations of the High Priests are obviously lower-order primitives clinging to the dark ages.

However, the dream is untrue.  It is an inverted order of history, the reverse of facts:

"....human history can now be hesitantly traced back as an unbroken narrative to 4000 B.C. The facts must not, however, be twisted to suit the fallacy of necessary human progress. For the picture emerging....is one of the Fall of Man in historic terms as well as his rise; it is a picture ...more of degradation than of success; it is a picture of monotheism breaking down into polytheism and of the struggle to return to monotheism. The establishment view of the history of religion gradually progressing from animism to polytheism, from polytheism to monotheism is the reverse of facts." (The God-Kings and the Titans: The New World Ascendancy in Ancient Times, James Baily, 1973, p. 296)

Delusions: Beguiling Unrealities

In the American Dictionary of the English Language (1828), Noah Webster defines the word delusion as deception, the misleading of the mind, false representation, error or mistake proceeding from false views.  Delusions are beguiling.   They mesmerize and transfix the mind. They blind it to reality.

After much thought, C.S. Lewis came to believe that evolutionary thinking was at the center of the delusion.   In a letter to a friend Lewis writes that he is right in "regarding (evolution) as the central and radical lie in the whole web of falsehood that now governs our lives..." and added, "it is not so much your arguments against it as the fanatical and twisted attitudes of its defenders." (Letter to Bernard Acworth, Spt. 13, 1951)

Though Truth will set us free, so thoroughly blinded and beguiled are the defenders of evolution that when Truth is presented to them they willfully refuse to ‘see’ it and immediately scoff, mock and ridicule it, particularly its bearer because they prefer darkness to light, slavery to freedom.

Isaiah 44: 20 describes the deluded person as one who feeds on ashes,

“…a deluded heart misleads him; he cannot save himself, or say, ‘Is not this thing in my right hand a lie?”

The only cure for delusion and spiritual blindness is spiritual regeneration through repentance and submission to God the Father Almighty.

Demonic Subjection: What Is It and Why It Overshadows America

In "The Spiritist Fallacy," a penetrating analysis of the Luciferian Theosophy, Buddhism and Spiritism that emerged out of the Renaissance taking hold of the minds of modernist priests and intellectuals, the highly respected French traditionalist metaphysician Rene Guenon (1886-1951) describes deluded "enlightened" theologians and intellectuals as those who can no longer speak of the devil,

"....without a smile of disdain, or an even more contemptuous shrug of the shoulders." (p. 252)

Their smug contempt is due to the fact that they believed the spirit-channeled lie that Lucifer is not the devil but rather the "light-bearer." After all, if evolution is true, as enlightened sophisticates believe, then there was no fall, hence man is not fallen and Lucifer is not the devil but the first free-thinker, the emancipator of man and the angel of evolution. Modern sophisticates even go so far as to call him 'the Great Creative Intelligence.' Thus they invoke Lucifer and perform his cult, but in fact these people,

"...though in fact Satanists, are only unconsciously so, for they are mistaken as to the nature of the entity to whom they address their worship....It goes without saying that these 'enlightened' priests are all plainly modernists and that the spirit animating them is strangely similar to that affirmed in these lines." (p. 254)

Modernism emerged out of the Renaissance when many influential Christians at the highest levels of the Church and society fell away from orthodox Christian theism in favor of the Ageless Wisdom Teachings and Hermetic magic that originated centuries before Jesus Christ.

Whether today’s Modernist “elites” call themselves empirical realists, naturalists, Marxists, Fascists, green nature worshippers, Wiccans, Rosicrucian’s, upper level Free Masons, liberal  theologians, Theosophists, Technocrats, Trans-humanists or New Age they have this is common: all are demonically subjected to greater and lesser degrees and some of them possessed because just as the Lord of Hosts gives His Holy Spirit to those who love and obey Him, He can send evil spirits upon those who are disobedient, living in persistent sin, practicing occult arts, or who in their pride and envy outright reject and hate Him.    Thus we find the Lord of Hosts sending an evil spirit to King Saul (1 Sam. 16:14) which tormented him,

filling him with unrest, anger, fear and murderous intent.” (Occult Bondage and Deliverance, Kurt E. Koch, p. 137)

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987) was a highly respected German minister who pastored, counseled and delivered more than twenty thousand people suffering from demonic subjection in its various forms and manifestations throughout the world.  It may well be that there is no one with more first-hand experience and knowledge in the field of Satanism than Koch.  

According to Koch, demonic subjection is a surprisingly common occurrence in our so-called "enlightened" times and refers to the condition of a person who is bound and subject to Satan’s power so that though the person in bondage is not the actual devil he or she is of like mind with him. 

Most people have little or no clue that they are in fact demonically subjected, while some of the most dangerous, such as Stalin for example, seem to possess a limitless supply of demonic energy, especially when engaged in imposing their will over the wills of others.  Kaganovitch, Stalin's brother-in-law and closest collaborator describes Stalin as no longer human:

"Even when he exhibited some emotions, they all did not seem to belong to him. They were as false as the scale on top of armor...He was not human at all..." (Marx & Satan, Richard Wurmbrand)

Milovan Djilas, Communist leader of Yugoslavia, perceptively describes the mesmerizing satanic energy emanating from Stalin:

"Was it not so that the demonic power and energy of Stalin consisted in this, that he made the (Communist) movement and every person in it pass to a state of confusion and stupefaction, thus creating and ensuring his reign of fear..." (ibid)

There are many underlying causes of demonic subjection. Koch delineates some of the leading ones:

If a person blatantly lives a life of sin and persistently resists the Spirit of God and remains completely unrepentant, or if a person carries the sin of murder or abortion on his conscience, or has committed perjury or practical incest, if he has cursed his fellow men or blasphemed against the cross or against Christ, the Holy Spirit, or God, then he will have laid himself open to the devil’s attacks.  Every curse is in fact a cry to the devil, and can for this reason lead a person into bondage.” (Occult Bondage, 138)

Demonic subjection inevitably befalls those who persistently engage in psycho-spiritual techniques such as channeling, tantric yoga, Kundalini yoga, centering techniques, visualizing/dreaming, positive imaging, trance music, brain-altering drugs, heavy metal and drugs, necromancy, magic, and witchcraft.  The same danger pertains to use of occult devices such as Ouija and Enneagram together with any of the other occultisms spreading like wildfire over America and into the whole body of the sleeping Church.

One of the first things to become subject to demonic influence is a person’s thoughts and feelings:

This often results in a complete attitude of indifference to any spiritual influence, and to an open rejection of any belief in God.  The Word of God loses its power to speak, and God’s promises become meaningless.  The person finds he can only entertain evil thoughts in his mind and ideas which are opposed to God.  He is gripped with a passion for lying and impure thoughts.  Indeed, the desire to lie so fills him that he does so unconsciously. In spite of feeling no remorse for his sins, he will be plagued with a continuous feeling of restlessness, with a lack of peace, and depressive moods.”  (Occult Bondage, p. 140)

In the following examples, Dr. Koch outlines some other conditions denoting demonic subjection that with every day becomes increasingly descriptive of both American culture and apostatizing Church:

1.Warped, distorted character; narcissism, hard egoism, uncongenial dark nature

2. Extreme passions; abnormal sexuality, violent temper, fits of rage, belligerence, tendencies to addiction, meanness, kleptomania

3. Compulsive thoughts of suicide and murder; anxiety states, persecution complexes

4. Demonic possession: confusion, delusion; destructive, murderous urges; fits of mania, tendency to violence, inhabitation by demons, conscious atheism, simulated piety, blasphemous thoughts, words and acts and bigoted attitude against Christ and God. (Occult ABC, Koch, pp. 266-282)

In "Hostage to the Devil: the Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary Americans," (1992) Malachi Martin presents five cases of possession expressing important elements and basic attitudes characterizing the demonic subjection and possession overtaking America’s Godless postmodern society. In the possessed person, such as the 'no longer human' Stalin, these elements and attitudes are pushed to a very narrow and frightening extreme. Martin summarizes these elements and attitudes in the following points:

1.Moral imbecility: All sense suddenly seems like nonsense; nothing is ever right.

2. Hopelessness, death and suicide confirmed as the only hope

3. Death, cruelty and contempt are normal

4. Moral relativism and/or postmodernism: the depraved insistence that there is no essential difference between good and evil; all 'truth' and 'moral' values are subject to one's personal preference

5. Empiricism: The supernatural and miraculous must be resolved in 'natural' or rational and empirically verifiable scientific explanations

6. Naturalism: There can be no relevance for the modern person in anything that cannot be rationally understood and no 'truth' important beyond what is this-worldly or natural.

7. Androgyny: There are multiple and ever-expanding 'genders' and expressions of 'love'

8. Fatal confusion between spirit (mind, will) and psyche (soul). Of this Martin said, "If everything (of) spirit can be made to seem a product merely of human psyche...then love can be made to seem only a chemical interaction, and love's paradigm is killed."

9. Confusion: One basic note of possession is confusion of truth with lie, good with evil, supernatural with natural. Confusion, or satanic inversion, is a primary weapon of evil said Martin.

In "Three Characteristics of the Diabolical, and how they are Manifest in the Modern World," Msgr. Charles Pope of the Archdiocese of Washington provides three more elements and attitudes characteristic of demonic subjection in our God-less society:

1. Love of Nudity:

"This is clearly manifest at several levels. First there is the widespread tendency of immodest dress..."fashions" (that) reveal more than is reasonable and generally have, as their intent to draw attention to aspects of the body that are private and reserved for sexual union in marriage. Too many in our culture see little problem parading about in various stages of undress, wearing clothing that are more intended to disclose and call attention to, than to conceal the private areas of the body. This love of disclosure and titillation is surely an aspect of the Evil One's love of nudity, and he has surely spread his obsession to many in the modern West".

2. Pornography: 

 "Though nothing new in this fallen world, has surely reached epidemic proportions via the Internet. Any psychotherapist, counselor or priest will tell you that addiction to pornography is a huge problem among people today. Pornographic sites on the Internet outpace all others tenfold. Multimillion Americans are viewing enormous amounts of pornography and the "industry" is growing exponentially. What was once hidden away in adult bookstores is now one click away on the Internet. And the thought that browsing habits are easily discoverable matters little to the addicts of this latest form of slavery. Many are on a steep slope downward into ever more deviant forms of porn. Many end up at illegal sites before they even know what has happened to them, and the FBI is knocking on their door. Satan's love of nudity has possessed many!"

3. The overall sexualization of culture also ties in to Satan's love of nudity: 

 "We sexualize women to sell products. We even sexualize children. Our sitcoms chatter endlessly about sex in a very teenage and immature sort of way. We are, collectively, goofy and immature about sex, and our culture giggles like horny teenagers obsessed with something we don't really understand. Yes, Satan loves nudity, and everything that goes with it."

4.  Confusion or satanic inversion is a prime weapon of evil:

"And then of course there is the utter confusion that celebrates homosexual activity. What Scripture calls gravely sinful, disordered, and contrary to nature (= ðáñὰ öýóéí – para physin – Rom 1:26) many in our culture now openly celebrate. And those afflicted as such, openly identify themselves with what tempts them:

"Under another housing option, Wesleyan’s Office of Residential Life invites gender-confused students who identify themselves under the umbrella of one or more of the 15 alternative sexualities to join a house embracing everyone but heterosexuals. This campus residence is called “Open House,” which welcomes each of the 15 groups represented by the acrostic “LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM.” For those not in-tune with many of the invented “gender identities,” LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM individuals represent the following groups (in order): lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, flexual, asexual, genderf***, polyamorous, bondage/disciple, dominance/submission, and sadism/masochism." (Wesleyan Univ. pulls men-only frats, pushes housing for 15 ‘sexualities,' Michael F. Haverluck, OneNewsNow.com,  Friday, February 27, 2015)  

Rather than lament the difficulty and trial of such affliction and offer love, support and truth that they, may live celibately, (as all the unmarried are called to do), our sex saturated culture, blinded and darkened by its own wild lust, affirms and encourages them to indulge what can only bring further harm to them, and others, for it is of the darkness and contrary to nature. They have exchanged the truth of God for a lie... Romans 1:25"   (blog.adw.org, Apr. 8, 2013)

Homosexual activity is of the darkness, yet while our White House and increasing numbers of Americans tolerate and celebrate it our children, military, and society in particular are paying the price:

It appears that the DOD has serious problems  with male-on-male sexual assaults that men are not reporting and the Pentagon doesn’t want to talk about,” said Elaine  Donnelly, who heads the Center for Military Readiness. She noted that only 2 percent of assailants are women." (Victims of sex assaults in military are mostly men, Rowan Scarborough, washingtontimes.com, May 20, 2013)

"Forcible sodomy of men and rape of women is certainly causally connected to completed and attempted suicides. Yet, despite the high rates of male and female rape and forcible sodomy, the CDP report dodges the prominent role of both sexual abuse and pornography - that is, how-to sex abuse manuals and videos - in fueling the lust and contempt that spawns both offender sexual abuse and victim suicidal ideation." (Military sodomite abuse: The untold story, Judith Reisman, Ph.D., drjudithreisman.com, May 2013)

 "The Obama Administration is heightening its already-heavy focus on promotion of its “LGBT rights” agenda  overseas, creating a specific ambassador slot to champion the cause."   (Obama admin. announces first-ever Special Envoy for LGBT rights, Lisa Bourne, Wed Feb 25, 2015) 

"The Little Black Book - Queer in the 21st Century," an extremely depraved and disgusting "how-to" booklet "was distributed to hundreds of kids (middle school age and up) at Brookline High School, Brookline, MA, on April 30, 2005. It was written by the Boston-based AIDS Action Committee, with help  from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Boston Public Health Commission. The event that day was designed for children and their teachers across Massachusetts, organized by the "Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network" (GLSEN).  This is the group that runs "Gay-Straight Alliance" clubs in public schools across the country. You must ask yourself: What kind of person would write this? What kind of person would give it to kids?"  (massresistance.org)     

A black wing overshadows our increasingly insane, lawless, pornographic, homo-sexualized, disunited, satanically inverted States of Godless America which has passed into "a state of confusion and stupefaction" as it implodes under the powerfully destructive effects of demonic subjection at every level of society.

The West's Gnostic Caste System: Gnostikoi, Psychics and Somatics

Without our realizing it, the chief ancient and modern rival of supernatural Christianity--Gnostic Modernism (occult pantheism)---has triumphed over the West and America.   It emerged out of the Renaissance and began its' infiltration of the American Christian church at the beginning of the last century.   In speaking of its' inroads J. Gresham Machen said,

"A terrible crisis has arisen in the Church. In the ministry of evangelical  churches are to be found hosts of those who reject the gospel of Christ. By the  equivocal use of traditional phrases, by the representation of differences of  opinion as though they were only differences about the interpretation of the  Bible, entrance into the Church was secured for those who are hostile to the  very foundations of the faith. And now there are some indications that the  fiction of conformity to the past is to be thrown off, and the real meaning of  what has been taking place is to be allowed to appear. The Church, it is now  apparently supposed, has almost been educated up to the point where the shackles  of the Bible can openly be cast away and the doctrine of the Cross of Christ can  be relegated to the limbo of discarded subtleties." (Liberalism or Christianity, Machen, The Princeton Theological Review, Vol. 20, No. 1, 1922, Page 93, Whitehorse Inn)

For faithful orthodox Christians, the 'very foundations of the faith' are the first eleven chapters of the Book of Genesis and to a greater degree, the Christian worldview.  Genesis is the Divine account of the origin of the universe, of all life, of the creation and purpose of man and woman, the foundation and purpose of marriage, the roles of the two sexes male and female, and of the value of children.

In His divine revelation God also tells us what went wrong with the world and man in the account of the fall and reveals something of man’s cosmic adversary and his timeless methods of deception and seduction used to lead men away from God.  Thus the question of evil, suffering, and death is explained in the first eleven chapters of Genesis as well as the ‘fix,’ meaning the only way of salvation.

Gnostic Modernism (mystical pantheist spirituality) and its' materialist evolutionary counterpart are subtly disguised syncretic mixtures of Babylonian Cabalism, ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic, the Mysteries from the time of Babylon, spiritual evolution, Greek and Roman nature religions, Eastern mysticism, reincarnation, karma and an inverted evolutionary account bespeaking the evolutionary transformation of various creatures into human beings.

 The primary doctrine for both variations is an inverted evolutionary account of origins.  Other commonalities are denial of creation ex nihilo, the incarnation and deity of Jesus Christ and His resurrection, and  denial of hell.  Gnostics of both stripes find salvation in the gnosis of elite men such as scientists, philosophers, and spiritual gurus and either teach a godless evolving  universe of matter or a pantheist based conception of God as divine energy, Life force, Mind of the Universe, Christ consciousness, or Omega, for example.    Gnostic Modernism further claims that as God is supposedly in everything, and everything is continuously evolving, then God is always in process of 'becoming' or 'changing.'   Thus all things, including the Bible and the Christian church, the two sexes, truth, and moral laws must change or become 'contemporary' too.  

Within Darwinian biological evolution, evolutionary dynamics are not empirical science but rather metaphysical conceptions while in theological modernism they are spiritual conceptions.  From the time of the Renaissance when high-ranking, influential Christian Churchmen, intellectuals, and mystics had rejected the fundamental teachings of Christian theism in favor of the Mysteries, Cabalism and other ancient creeds on through to the German Idealists of early 19th century, evolution was viewed as a spiritual conception bespeaking progress (transformation) of spirit over time within many different bodies.

The German Idealists were mystical philosophers of pantheism who predated Darwin's Origin of Species by at least half a century.  In 1799 the mystic philosopher Friedrich Schelling summarized what was fascinating him as well as his mystical contemporaries such as J.G. Fichte and the occult Hermetic magician Hegel:

"History as a whole is a progressive, gradually self-disclosing revelation of the Absolute." (A Brief History of Evolutionary Spirituality, Tom Huston)

The modern conception of spiritual evolution can be traced to Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz.  Writing on “The Ultimate Origin of Things” in the year 1697—six years after speculating in his Protogaea that over the vast course of the earth’s history “even the species of animals have many times been transformed” he claimed that,

a cumulative increase of the beauty and universal perfection of the works of God, a perpetual and unrestricted progress of the universe as a whole must be recognized, such that it advances to a higher state of development.”

Though the idea that man and creation are not fallen but rather evolving upward from primordial matter in a ceaseless ascent toward perfection had already been intuited over seventy years earlier by the German mystic Jakob Böhme, it was Leibniz who first placed it in a scientific context.

Over the next few decades Gnostic thinkers such as Diderot, Maupertuis, Buffon, and Voltaire all wrote about the fascinating topic of evolution but, "like any self-respecting champions of the Age of Enlightenment, rarely felt compelled to inject divinity into their more scientific speculations."

By upholding the liberating power of rationalism, science and evolution to subvert the fundamentals of the Bible and Christian theism, they actively sought to draw a clear distinction between science and spirituality, reason and religion.  In this context, through much of the eighteenth century, the many musings about the idea of evolution frequently took on a strictly naturalistic or materialistic tone:

"It was only around 1799, ten years after the storming of the Bastille, which ignited the French Revolution and cemented the success of the rational Enlightenment in the annals of the Western mind, that these varied intimations of evolution finally congealed into a cohesive new model of reality. Arising, once again, from the fertile depths of the German zeitgeist, it was a cosmological and metaphysical paradigm that seamlessly united science and spirituality—an evolutionary vision that stretched from the simplest atoms of the distant past to a sacred future in which human society would perfectly reflect the transcendent unity of the Divine. " (ibid, Huston)

In his essay, "The Paganization of New Testament Studies," Dr. Peter Jones exposes theological progressivism as neo-pagan Gnosticism and writes that throughout its history, its' primary goal has been the,

"... importation into the church via the use of Christian terminology, of the various historic expressions of pagan notions, in particular, the denial of God's transcendence. In this sense, the first "liberals" were the Gnostics. Certainly a form of Gnosticism, sometimes called proto-Gnosticism is behind the denial of the incarnation in the Johannine epistles, and of the resurrection in the early and later Paulines. Interestingly, the Liberals of the modern period have had great admiration for the proto-Gnostics, in particular, Marcion. In A.D. 150, Marcion, a theologian from Pontus in Asia Minor, was excommunicated from the Church in Rome for heretical teaching. He dismissed God the Creator, the Old Testament, the Mosaic law, and three of the gospels. From the few epistles of Paul that he accepted, he expunged Old Testament quotations and claimed to worship the "alien god" behind the God of Scripture. " 

Twentieth century's most dangerous expression of secular Gnosticism was Marxist Communism, a form of Manichean Gnosticism.  Also called scientific socialism, Marxist Communism was the first natural religion of scientific evolutionary Gnostic atheism to emerge out of the “God is dead” Enlightenment period.  Since scientific socialism is a religion of  'matter' and the energies that work on matter it requires the unmaking of man created in the spiritual likeness of the living, personal Creator.

Bella Dodd was an important leader of the Communist Party of America (CPUSA) in the 1930' s and 1940's. Her book, "School of Darkness" (1954) reveals that Communism---the promise of a utopia-- was a hoax perpetrated by a banker/corporatist coterie "to control the common man" and to advance world tyranny.  In chapter eleven of Dodd's book she notes that the unmaking of man as God's spiritual image-bearer is the key to the spiritual, intellectual and physical enslavement of mankind:

 “This is the key to the mental enslavement of mankind: that the individual is made into nothing, that he operates as the physical part of what is considered a higher group intelligence and acts at the will of that higher intelligence….”

The mental and physical enslavement (dehumanization of the masses) is required by highly evolved gnostikoi (pneumatics), proud spiritual elites who see themselves as the only ones capable of reason and of ordering the lives of everyone else, right down to the smallest detail.

In "Against the Protestant Gnostics," (p. 34) pastor and theologian Philip J, Lee writes that gnostikoi take it upon themselves to divide humankind into three categories:

1. Somatic (hylic): the masses of unevolved mindless beast-men who are content to exist on a bodily level: eating, drinking, defecating, sleeping, partying, copulating, sodomizing each other, and dying.  Hylic are mere beast-men beyond help.  

2. Psychics: those who function at the higher level of mind, intellect, emotions---the commonsense types who comprise the majority of the Church, Tea Partiers, etc.

3. Pneumatics: the elite spiritual gnostikoi----the man-gods comprising America's Progressive Ruling Class.

The Gnostic Basilides, when asked if somatics could really be called men at all, categorically denied it.   Sounding just like modern gnostic Marxists, their fascist brethren and America's gnostic "elites" who dehumanized the masses in order to destroy the family, enslave, manipulate, propagandize, indoctrinate, gas, starve to death, euthanize and abort them, Basilides said: 

"We are men; all the others are pigs and dogs."  (ibid, Lee)

Modern Gnostic regimes (Marxist Communism, Hitler's Socialism) began by rejecting the Triune God and Christ's deity, denying objective standards of right and wrong, and forcing Darwinism---which dehumanizes mankind---onto an unwitting population.   Darwinism allows the gnostikoi to throw out sanctity of life and reduce mankind to matter in motion.  The end case in every instance, was to place absolute power over dehumanized masses (somatics) in the hands of antihuman psychopaths and autocratic states to be wielded without restraint or mercy.  

Of all belief systems, modern Gnosticism has been by far the bloodiest.  In his book, Death by Government, R.J. Rummel comprehensively details the roughly 170 million people murdered by Gnostic governments during the 20th century. 

Even at its mildest, as is thus far the case here in America, there is a steady level of lying, confiscation, corruption, fraud, and stifling of freedoms and free speech.  For the first time ever, Americans are afraid of saying certain words.  Parents fear disciplining their own children.  More ominously, the gnostikoi in control of American institutions---government, seminaries, education, media, science, finance, and law have nearly succeeded in replacing the living, transcendent God with Darwinism, thus allowing them to throw out both sanctity of life and objective standards.  "We the people" have been dehumanized---reduced to matter and energy in motion.

As early as 1926, President Calvin Coolidge was aware of and deeply concerned by the insidious spread evolutionary materialism (Gnostic neo-paganism) in America.  As he knew, Americans are free only because of the supernatural Judeo-Christian foundation laid by the country's founders.  In a speech he delivered in Philadelphia (July 5, 1926) to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence he tried to call Americans back to their Biblically-based heritage.

He reminded Americans that the Declaration's principles of liberty arise from man's God-given inalienable rights.  And these are found, said Coolidge,

"in the texts, the sermons, and the writings of the early colonial clergy..."  The clergy preached equality "because they believed in the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man."  Sanctity of life, the right to self-defense, and all the rest of our individual liberties were justified "by the text that we are all created in the divine image, all partakers of the divine spirit."  God's children therefore, have no "superiors" there are no modern-day "divine rights kings"  (or gnostikoi) who possess "any right to rule...over them." (Back Fired, William Federer, pp. 269-271)

The Declaration,

"(is) a great spiritual document."  Its principles are not material but spiritual.  "Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man---these are not elements we can see and touch.  They are ideals (whose) source and roots (are) in religious convictions.  They belong to the unseen world." (ibid)

President Coolidge cautioned Americans that,

"......unless the faith of the Americans in these religious convictions is to endure, the principles of our Declaration will perish.  We can not continue to enjoy the result if we abandon the cause." (ibid)

Coolidge ended his speech with a stark warning:

"We must not sink into a pagan materialism..."  

Issuing another wake-up call, Dr. Jones closed his essay with a warning that comes from Johannes van Oort, Professor of church history and the history of dogma at the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands, and world expert on Manichean Gnosticism.  Oort states a fact and gives a challenge:

"…Gnosis in one form or another is expected to become the main expression of secular religion in the new millennium. In order to equip the Church for this new age, the scientific study of Gnosticism is vital."

Luciferian Occultism Overtaking the West

In "Why Some Scientists Embrace the 'Multiverse," Dennis Prager reports that he recently participated, along with 30 scholars, mostly scientists and mathematicians, in a conference on the question of whether the universe was designed, or at least fine-tuned to make life possible, especially intelligent life. Participants — from Yale, Princeton, Harvard, Berkeley and Columbia among other American and European universities — included agnostics, atheists and believers in God.  (Prager, Jewish World Review, June 18, 2013)

Though the clear scientific consensus was that, at the very least, the universe is exquisitely fine-tuned to allow for the possibility of life said Prager, many atheist scientists and fellow-travelers who insist there be no Creator God put forward the notion of a multiverse despite there being not a shred of evidence for the existence of these universes.  

The multiverse hypothesis is a desperate grasp at the fantasy theory first proposed by David Deutsch in his book, "The Fabric of Reality."  Deutsch's theory posits the existence of an infinite number of parallel universes in the vain hope that in at least one of them, conscious life and order arose by pure chance, meaning that living beings created themselves.

 Eminent quantum theorist John Polkinghorne utterly rejects the multiverse nonsense:

 "Let us recognize these speculations for what they are.  They are not physics, but....metaphysics.  There is no purely scientific reason to believe in an ensemble of universes....To my mind greater economy and elegance would be that this one world is the way it is because it is the creation of the will of a Creator who purposes that it should be so." (Cosmos, Creator and Human Destiny, Dave Hunt, p. 209)

 Multiverse speculations, as Polkinghorne pointed out, are not physics but metaphysics, and in fact are grounded in a two-fold neo-Gnostic vision.  First, that living beings created themselves from pre-existing or spontaneously generated matter, and second, the age-old technology of alchemy and its magical meaning: the ancient Egyptian Hermetic principle of the macrocosm's correlation with the microcosm, “As above, so below” symbolized by the Ouroboros---the great chain of being, cosmic tree of life or with Darwin the tree of life.

In modern Luciferian theosophical thought for example, the Ouroboros ‘above’ corresponds to a number of different astral planes and sub-planes comprising the habitations,

"(of all) supernatural entities, the locale of gods and demons, the void where the thoughtforms dwell, the region inhabited by spirits of the air and other elements, and the various heavens and hells with their angelic and demonic hosts....With the help of ritual procedures, trained persons believe that they can 'rise on the planes,' and experience these regions in full awareness." ("Beyond the Body: The Human Double and the Astral planes, Benjamin Walker, 1974, pp. 117-8)

The Ouroboros with its astral planes is well-known around the world in its' many esoteric traditions:

“References to this reality are the Dreaming of the Australian Aborigines, the Spirit-world of Shamanism, the Duart of the ancient Egyptians, the Bardo (Intermediate State) of the Tibetans, the Imaginal world of Islamic Esotericism - e.g. the Barzakh (Interworld) or of Suhrawardi and the Mithal (Imaginal realm) of Ibn Arabi - the Universe of Asiyah of some Kabbalists, or of Yetzirah according to others.  Other descriptions are the Nervo degree of the Physical State of Theon, the Astral or 2nd Prakritic plane (corresponding to the Linga Sharira or Subtle or Astral body) and the Kama (Desire-Plane) of Blavatsky, the Astral Plane of the Adyar school of Theosophy and of popular occultism, Rudolf Steiner's "Soul World"; and the Vital and Subtle Physical described by Sri Aurobindo and Mirra.  These are just a few of the innumerable descriptions of this plane of existence.” (The Astral Plane, kheper.net)

The Apostle Paul speaks not of cosmic trees, astral planes and the beings supposedly existing there but of fallen angels, the "spirits of wickedness under the heavens" (Eph. 6:12) and their chief, "the prince of the powers of the air." (Eph. 2:2) 

According to Paul, fallen angels are dispersed in a multitude throughout the whole blue expanse of sky which is visible to us---the dwelling place for the host of fallen angels who have been cast down from heaven.    This means that in esoteric multiverse theories and occult cosmic tree of life conceptions, the whole blue expanse of sky under the heavens where fallen angels dwell is the Ouroboros/cosmic tree ‘above’ consisting of astral planes and sub-planes connected by the great chain of being up which the initiate spiritually ascends (evolves) by way of ritual (i.e., transcendental meditation, mind-altering drugs) as he traverses the occult Path of Life or Western Magical Way to reach divine status and gain psychic powers. 

Royal Astronomer Lord Martin Rees champions multiverse conceptions in the hope that in at least one or more of them living beings created themselves who are far more advanced than our own life-forms.  Rees believes that if this is the case, then super-intelligent aliens might be capable of simulating in their brains or in a super-computer the complex history of our universe, meaning the universe we inhabit is a simulation lacking real substance and existing only as a mental construction, a matrix, in the minds of highly evolved aliens who seeded our world with life and travel through time in order to control man’s evolutionary progress. (Scientific Mythologies, James A. Herrick, p. 216)

The idea that the universe we inhabit exists only as a mental construction is very similar to Hinduism's Brahman. Brahman is the Great Cosmic Spirit--- the Ultimate One Substance (prakriti matter) or Essence of material phenomena, meaning that the universe exists only as a mental construction in the mind of Brahman: brahma satyam jagan mithya, or "Brahman is real, the world is unreal."

Rees proposal is also similar to the hypothesis presented by Olaf Stapledon, a scientist who has always kept one foot firmly planted in neo-Gnostic science fiction accounts and imagines our universe to be an artifact of the Star Maker.  Building off of Stapledon's fantasy Carl Sagan suggests that we are "star folk" made of "star stuff."    (Herrick, pp. 216-217)

Replace Star Maker with Brahman and "star stuff" with sarvam khalvidam brahma, or "All is truly Brahman" (swamij.com) and we have ayam atma brahmam: "The Self is Brahman." (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 4.4.5)

In the caption of his book, “Just Six Numbers,” Rees reveals the ancient occult basis of his propositions:

 "The ouraboros. There are links between the microworld of particles, nuclei and atoms and the cosmos." (Rees M., Just Six Numbers, P. 9)

 "Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field…" — Genesis 3:1

As a powerful occult symbol, the Ouroboros or Uroboros means the seething power, creative and/or evolutionary impulse or energy of the serpent figuratively depicted as either a serpent or dragon eating its own tail.  The serpent's body is often depicted as the Great Chain of Being, Cosmic Tree of Life, or with Darwin, the Tree of Life.  

 The occult Tree of Life with its' multiple dimensions and life-giving energy systems not only powers the universe but reaches into the psyche, stirring imagination, bringing psychic powers and even awakening pre-human memories of when the scientifically "enlightened occult elite,” the Gnostikoi, were fish:

 "Remember when you were a fish...." suggested Jean Houston, the prophet of the possible, in a workshop to awaken ancient pre-human memories.  Nearly a thousand evolved life-forms (people) dropped to the floor and began moving their 'fins' as if to propel themselves through water.  "Notice your perception as you roll like a fish. How does your world look, feel, sound, smell, taste?"  Then you crawled up on land said Houston, so now you must, "Allow yourself to fully remember being a reptile....Then some of you flew. Others climbed trees."   A zoo of beastly sounds erupted from the herd of pre-human birds, reptiles and apes. (America: The Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt and McMahon, p. 218)

 From the time of the ancients serpent power has been important to religious and mythological symbolism all around the world. Within the Egyptian mysteries, serpent power was associated with,

..."the elemental forces that were in play before the creation of the world." (Carl Teichrib, Gods of Ancient Egypt, p. 182)

 In China serpents were spiritually linked with earth and water while in Scandinavian myth a world serpent protected man from cosmic forces of chaos.  The self-described Gnostic Carl Jung interpreted the Ouroboros as having archetypal consubstantiality to the human psyche.    Serpent power is also associated with today's occult New Age spirituality as well as Gnosticism, occult Hermetic Kabbalah, Roisicrucianism, Illuminati, Freemasonry and its' blatantly Luciferian sister, Theosophy, where according to Helena Blavatsky, serpent power represents self-generation and evolution through its own creative power

In his book, "The Sign of the Serpent," Mark Balfour relates how pervasive serpent symbols are within India and the Hindu religion:

 "Any observant traveler who moves from the snow-tipped Himalayas in the North to the sun-soaked sands of Cape Comorin at India’s southern tip, will encounter—particularly in the rural areas and at sacred centres of pilgrimage wherever Siva, God of both Divine Wisdom and regeneration, is the presiding Deity—the serpent motif sculptured within shrines, impressed on myriads of stone implants in the ground and depicted in art." (A Short Guide to Occult Symbols: Serpent Power, Carl Teichrib, 2005, Kjos Ministries)  

 Balfour elaborates on this belief:

 "In Hinduism, the Cosmic Serpent—Ananta Sesha—symbolic of timeless eternity, carries the world on his 1000-fold [Cobra] hood…As the creative impulse stirs within the great Serpent in the Sky—when passive idea becomes active thought—the forces of attraction and repulsion come into play as ‘spirit’ begins its involution into "matter." (ibid, Teichrib)

Moreover, Kundalini yoga, a discipline within Hinduism, teaches that latent serpent energy lies at the base of the etheric human spine,

"…like a coiled serpent, ready to spring." (Harper's Dictionary of Hinduism, p. 156, ibid, Teichrib)  

 Through strenuous yoga techniques, this Kundalini serpent power uncoils and rises through seven "chakras" or power centers within the human body. The Kundalini serpent force is considered,

 "(to be a) concentrated field of intelligent cosmic, invisible energy absolutely vital to life beginning in the base of the spine as a man or a woman begins to evolve in their first incarnation." (The Donning International Encyclopedic Psychic Dictionary, p. 343, ibid, Teichrib)

The serpent power/Masonry connection is revealed by occultist Mason Manly Hall who says that when the Mason learns how to properly channel the power of the serpent he has learned the mystery of his Craft:

The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply energy.” (New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies, William T. Still, p. 30)

In “Occult Theocracy,” Edith Starr Miller elaborates on the serpent power/Masonry connection:

Luciferian Occultism controls Freemasonry (and) is therefore not a novelty, but it bore a different name in the early days of Christianity.  It was called Gnosticism…” (Occult Theocracy, p. 198, 1933)

 Free Masonry is grounded in occult Hermetic Kabbalah, the non-Jewish version of Kabbalah, a syncretic system that draws on Gnosticism, Western astrology, alchemy, ancient Egyptian drom which the alahnry connectionntherefore not a novelty, but it bore a different name in the early days of Chhermeticism, Greco-Roman nature religions, Eastern mysticism/reincarnation/karma, spiritual and biological evolutionary conceptions, neoplatonism, the Enochian system of angelic magic of John Dee and Edward Kelley, rosicrucianism, tantra, and tarot cards, which are seen as keys to the Tree of Life. 

Occult Hermetic Kabbalah is also the underlying philosophy and framework for Western magical societies such as the Golden Dawn, Thelemic orders, mystical-religious societies such as the Builders of the Adytum and is the precursor to the Wiccan, Neopagan and Luciferian New Age spirituality over-taking Western and American civilization.

Regarding the importance of occult Hermetic Kabbalah to Freemasonry, Albert Pike--the most influential Freemason that has lived---has this to say in his Morals and Dogma:

"The Kabalah is the key to the occult sciences; and the Gnostics were born of the Kabalists. (Morals and Dogma, p. 626) 

The famous scientist, engineer, religious writer and mystic, Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) claimed to have been instructed by beings on other planets as well as by angels during his astral plane travels.  Swedenborg has influenced a long line of scientists, philosophers, modern science fiction writers and movie producers as well as Joseph Smith. 

 Swedenborg described Masonry as a search after Light said Pike:

"That search leads us directly back, as you see, to the Kabbalah. In that ancient and little understood medley of absurdity and philosophy, the Initiate will find the source of many doctrines; and may in time come to understand the Hermetic philosophers, the Alchemists, all the Anti-papal Thinkers of the Middle Age, and Emanuel Swedenborg. (Morals and Dogma, p. 741)

The Gnostic Hermetic Kabbalah holds to the neoplatonic conception that the manifest universe (One Substance) of which material creation is a part, arose as a series of emanations or evolutions from the godhead or divine Cosmic Spirit.

In his Dictionary of Mysticism and the Occult, Nevill Drury writes that the Hermetic Kabbalah's Tree of Life consists of ten spheres,

"...or sephiroth, through which—according to mystical tradition—the creation of the world came about. The sephiroth are aligned in three columns headed by the supernals and together symbolize the process by which the Infinite Light…becomes manifest in the universe." (A Short Guide to Occult Symbols: The Tree of Life, Carl Teichrib)

 The sephiroth also have a role resembling that of the "...charkas [sic] in yoga."

In other words, the sephiroth symbolize the consubstantiality or oneness of the initiate's intellect with the Divine Substance (i.e., ancient Egyptian Nu, Chaos, Brahman, Omega Point, Singularity) as well as the seething evolutionary energies of Lucifer (Moshiach/Nachash/Gematria) while chakras refer to psychic centers that lie along the spine of the etheric body that awaken by way of kundalini serpent power yoga.

For the initiate, the deeper meaning of the Hermetic Kabbalah is the Tree of Life (snake’s body) ‘above’ as well as the inward path ‘below’ in which the adept who has mastered the seething energies of Lucifer discovers and experiences the "inner light" (also called the divine spark and inner Christ).

In short, Hermetic Kabbalah is a system of Luciferian teachings and evolutionary conceptions which open up the mind and the soul to a new level of understanding from the snake: salvation comes from within.

From the Renaissance to our own time, Gnostic Hermetic science packaged as biological and spiritual theories of evolution, various Tree of Life conceptions together with pre-existing or spontaneously generated matter theories, multiverse conceptions, Teilhard’s Omega Point and trans-humanism’s Technological Singularity for example, has swept the post-Christian West and America, even entering into the whole body of the Church.

Luciferian Occultism: Serpent Power

In "God and the Knowledge of Reality," the Catholic philosopher and historian, Thomas Molnar (1921–2010), writes that during the Renaissance Christian mystics and scholars such as Emanuel Swedenborg discovered Hermetic magic and esoteric Jewish Kabbalah texts which they studied and translated resulting in Hermetic Kabbalah.  Then like Pico della Mirandola, they argued that occult hermetic science---the divine technology or Magic Way of reaching divine status and powers through ritual procedures (and for Swedenborg astral plane traveling) is the best proof of the divinity of Christ.    In other words said Molnar,

"…..by the time of the Renaissance the esoteric texts of the first centuries A.D. had acquired in scholarly and humanist circles an unparalleled prestige, confronting as equals the texts held sacred by the church.  In Pico's estimation, 'nulla est scientia que nos magis certificet de divinitate Christ quam magia et Cabala' (there is no science that would prove for us Christ's divinity better than magic and the Cabala.)"  (pp. 78-79)

From then till now, Luciferian occult science has been working steadily toward its’ goal to invert, pervert, and replace the living word of God (Matthew 4:4) beginning with the book of Genesis, the book of beginnings divinely revealed to Moses for our edification and salvation.   As a result, the majority of contemporary Christians no longer know that Genesis is the living Word of God because they have lost contact with the early Church Fathers, the living link between the ancient texts containing God's revelation and today's esoteric evolutionary imperative.

 In their day, just as in our own, many people erroneously interpreted Genesis, especially the first three chapters, as an allegory, denying it has any literal and historic meaning.  Therefore the Church Fathers who wrote on Genesis made a specific point in saying it has literal meaning that we must understand correctly even while explaining that anthropomorphic statements about God describing Him as a man who sits on thrones for example, are to be understood symbolically.

Church Fathers regarded Genesis, especially the first three chapters, as divinely inspired text that tells of actual, historical events and people. St. Cyril of Alexandria for example, wrote that Genesis is divinely inspired and cannot be apprehended rightly without respect for its' historical meaning:

"Those who reject the historical meaning in the God-inspired Scriptures as something obsolete are avoiding the ability to apprehend rightly, according to the proper manner, the things written in them...whenever some historical events are presented to us by the Holy Scriptures (a) useful search into the historical meaning is appropriate, in order that the God-inspired Scripture be revealed as salvific and beneficial to us in every way." (St. Cyril, "Commentary on the Prophet Isaiah 1,4, PG 70, 192AB)

Church Fathers make the point that the whole of creation, including the soul of man, was brought into existence from non-existence (ex nihilo), not from eternally existing or spontaneously generated matter as ancient and modern evolutionary adherents and Luciferian occultists believe.

 On the miraculous creation of the first man Church Father John Chrysostom writes:

And God formed man of dust from the earth, and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul….the inbreathing communicated to the one created out of earth the power of life, and thus the nature of the soul was formed.  What does a living soul mean?  An active soul, which has the members of the body as the implements of its activities, submissive to its will.” (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Seraphim Rose, p.215)

 Gregory of Nyssa adds:

The body and the soul were formed at the same time—not one before and the other afterwards…” (ibid, p. 218)

 Jesus Christ, the “angel” who spoke with Moses at Sinai, is the Creator.  Foremost of His miracles is creation out of nothing—six acts or days of creation rather than the billions of years of evolutionary alchemical process out of matter:

The first moment of time is the moment of God’s creative act and of creation’s simultaneous coming to be.” (Philosopher and New Testament scholar William Lane Craig quoted in “If God created the universe, then who created God?’ by Jonathan Sarfati, Creation Ministries International)

With Irenaeus, the doctrine of creatio ex nihilo was well established. He also argued that the world (matter) was not coeternal with God:

 "But the things established are distinct from Him who has established them, and what [things] have been made from Him who has made them. For He is Himself uncreated, both without beginning and end, and lacking nothing. He is Himself sufficient for this very thing, existence; but the things which have been made by Him have received a beginning... He indeed who made all things can alone, together with His Word, properly be termed God and Lord; but the things which have been made cannot have this term applied to them, neither should they justly assume that appellation which belongs to the Creator." ("Is Creatio Ex Nihilo A Post-Biblical Invention? An Examination Of Gerhard May's Proposal," Paul Copan, Trinity Journal 17.1; Spring 1996)

 The Fourth Lateran Council of 1215 affirms creation ex nihilo:

 "We firmly believe and simply confess that there is only one true God ... the Creator of all things visible and invisible, spiritual and corporeal; who from the very beginning of time by His omnipotent power created out of nothing [de nihilo condidit] both the spiritual beings and the corporeal." (ibid, Copan)

 On creation ex nihilo, the Westminster Confession of Faith (1646) asserts:

 "It pleased God ... in the beginning, to create or make of nothing the world, and all things therein" (IV.I; ibid)

 The divinely inspired Genesis account of creation ex nihilo is a great stumbling block for contemporary Westerners and Americans---including great numbers of Christian theologians--- brought up with an evolutionary outlook, an antihuman, occult Luciferian/Gnostic materialistic worldview that has left them spiritually and morally impoverished.  

 "But in his estate shall (Antichrist) honour the God of forces." Dan. 11:38

Today the Nachash, the occult planetary-elites God of forces has confused, deluded and mesmerized vast numbers of Westerners and Americans.  As the animated seething energy called evolution the God of forces is the principle miracle-producing power of the cosmos. Having transformed the consciousness of his followers, they are no longer the spiritual image-bearers of the living Triune God but evolution’s conscious products who can achieve ever higher levels of consciousness by directing their own evolution.

So complete has the transformation of consciousness been that the God of forces has successfully inverted the order of creation and for increasing numbers of deluded Christians, reversed the direction of Biblical theism. With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by evolution, it is now believed that men have not fallen from perfection but instead are gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual perfection. Self-perfecting man no longer needs the living, supernatural God as the idea of "conscious evolution" means he can save himself, and perhaps even attain god-hood.

As the 'Christ' of the hugely popular "A Course in Miracles" the God of forces states that there is an "irresistible Force" within each person, a universal Force that when activated grants unimaginable psychic powers, even immortality.  The 'Christ' tells New Age leader Barbara Marx Hubbard that on the day of Planetary Pentecost a Planetary Smile will flash across the faces of all people who have accepted the Luciferian Initiation.  There will be "uncontrollable joy" that the 'Christ' describes as the "joy of Force" that will "ripple" through the one body of humanity.  ("False Christ Coming: Does Anybody Care? Warren B. Smith, p. 120)

The God of forces who is the serpent power worshipped by mankind from antiquity, the god of Gnostic Masonry, the seething energies of Lucifer, the serpent power of Kundalini yoga, the body of the occult Tree of Life, the Cosmic Spirit of the universe, the Singularity and the Collective who represents self-generation and evolution through its own creative power poses a question to his enthralled worshippers,

"What if I am not a 'man' at all, but rather a Force, an 'Energy" in the universe, that IS the universe, and that is, in fact, All That Is. What if I am The Collective?" ("God" in Conversations with God: Book 3, p. 125, Neale Donald Walsh, ibid Warren B. Smith, p. 122) 

Tragically, many people today, including growing numbers of Christians, are being seduced by an occult planetary mythology that grew out of the Renaissance and maintains that man is not fallen, that he is ultimately perfectible through a process of evolution and that through leaps of consciousness he can realize that he is God.   The common thread among all occult Hermetic science, secret societies and esoteric teachings since the Renaissance is a single mind directing the formation of the new religious consciousness.   It is the mind of the same fallen angel who tempted Adam and Eve in the Garden with the words, “Ye shall be as Gods.” (Gen. 3:5)

When finally the man of lawlessness arrives and appears to triumph for a time, in the end it is he whom the Lord Jesus,

….shall kill with the spirit of his mouth; and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming, him,” (2 Thes. 2:8)

Lessons of Evil

In "The High Cost of 'Free," Lloyd S. Pettegrew and Carol A. Vance report that in the Denver arena where Mr. Obama gave his DNC 2008 acceptance speech,

"...a woman in the audience became overwhelmed by the speech and said that she no longer needed to worry if she could make her car or mortgage payments because he would take care of it for her. In Cleveland, a woman claimed that she was going to vote for President Obama again because he gave her a free cellphone (along with a litany of other entitlement giveaways)."  (Ludwig von Mises Institute, June 5, 2013)

There is no 'cash tree' growing in Washington D.C. yielding the millions of dollars handed out by politicians for 'free' cell phones, 'free' house payments, 'free' education, 'free' condoms,  ‘free’ abortions, 'free' healthcare and other 'entitlement' giveaways.    Money doesn't grow on trees---it has to be earned the hard way by people who work.

The allure of "free" is so powerful, so overwhelmingly seductive that an alarming number of people, both citizen and noncitizen alike, willfully choose to become wards or 'slaves' of Big Brother's entitlement/welfare state rather than captain their own destiny:

“Economist Nicholas Eberstadt of the American Enterprise Institute believes that Americans have become a nation of takers, threatening the self-reliance that has long characterized our national psyche. Eberstadt (2012, p. 4) presents data showing that entitlement payments to Americans, since 1960, have risen annually by 9.5 percent..... This has resulted in 49 percent of American households receiving one or more government transfer benefits (Eberstadt 2013); this amounts to 18 percent of all personal income and a burden of $7,400 for every American." (ibid)

Under the pretense of compassion, fairness, equality, 'rights,' fighting poverty, protecting the environment, and granting 'choice' to abortion activists our 'broken' law forcibly takes property from one person and gives it to another.  It takes the wealth of the many and gives it to a favored few.  It gives the power of death to the self-serving few over the lives of the inconvenient and unwanted.   This is legalized murder and plunder and  is common to socialists, communists and others of the totalitarian bent of mind who see plunder  and murder together with forcing everyone to be miserable as a way of putting an end to all conditions that make for envy/covetousness, their own first of all.

The Founders fully recognized that in light of man's sin nature, covetousness/envy could easily become a driving force in politics, so they designed the Constitution to protect our God-given rights of life, liberty and property from the grasping hand of a tyrannical government.  They never intended for law to assume the role of Big Brother granting man-invented 'rights' 'privileges' and 'entitlements' to certain favored groups or individuals:

"The Constitution is a chart of negative liberties, (it) says what the states can't do to you, says what the federal government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what the federal government must do on your behalf." (Who Poses the Greater Threat? Walter Williams, Townhall.com, Mar. 3, 2010)

"Envy is rottenness to the bones" (Proverbs 14:30), and whether it is the genocidal socialism of the former Soviet Union, the version espoused by the Nazis or the Americanized socialism that is emerging here, the overarching sentiment is the very same cold-blooded deadly sin---covetousness/envy:

"Marxism has been described as a blood cult, with envy its abiding stimulant, fuel, and motive."  (Joseph Epstein, former editor of The American Scholar, quoted in "Truths About Socialism," Coral Ridge Ministries, p. 66)

Where the Church promised the remission of original sin, regeneration by the Spirit of God and salvation in paradise or eternal damnation in outer darkness, Marxist Communism held a redemptive belief in the Promethean destiny of mankind.  This was the messianic dream of the Workers’ Paradise where all conditions making for envy/covetousness would be put to an end by liberating libido and by seizing all 'sinful' property---including wives, daughters and sons coveted by the libidinous---and by liquidating all state 'enemies,' (i.e., the human objects of envy, dissidents).  'Enemy' was a totally elastic category that expanded or contracted to meet political needs, libidinous desires, whims and caprices of the moment:

"The enemy is the great justification for terror, and the totalitarian state needs enemies to survive.  If it lacks them, it invents them.  Once they have been identified, they are treated without mercy."   Being an enemy is enough, "there is no need actually to have done anything at all."  (The Black Book of Communism, Courtois, Werth, Panne, Paczkowski, Bartosek, Margolin, . p. 747)

The methodology of evil begins by labeling the hated and envied an 'enemy' (i.e. in America--- homophobe, racist, bigot, pro-lifer, traditionalist or anti-Muslim) and then declared a criminal (hateful bigot), which leads to his exclusion from society.   Where power is total, exclusion very quickly leads to arrest and then extermination:

"The leaders of totalitarian regimes saw themselves as the moral guardians of society and were proud of their right to send anyone they chose to their death."  (ibid, p. 748)

If not death then deportation---and no trial necessary:

"But when you were deported, what was it for? What was the charge?" "Why bother to think up a charge? 'Socially harmful' or 'socially dangerous element'--S.D.E.', they called it. Special decrees, just marked by letters of the alphabet. So it was quite easy. No trial necessary."  "And what about your husband? Who was he?" "Nobody. He played the flute in the Leningrad Philharmonic. He liked to talk when he'd had a few drinks." “…We knew one family with grown-up children, a son and a daughter, both Komsomol (Communist youth members). Suddenly the whole family was put down for deportation to Siberia. The children rushed to the Komsomol district office. 'Protect us!' they said. 'Certainly we'll protect you,' they were told. 'Just write on this piece of paper: As from today's date I ask not to be considered the son, or the daughter, of such-and-such parents. I renounce them as socially harmful elements and I promise in the future to have nothing whatever to do with them and to maintain no communication with them.”    (Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn,   Cancer Ward)   

 As envy really is rottenness to the bones, the reduction (dehumanization) of the hated and envied to pig, weed, dog, filth, bigot, homophobe, or socially harmful element for example, occurs as a matter of course to the darkened burning mind of the envious, especially to the soulless husks void of empathy and conscience.   Just as dehumanization precedes branding  as 'enemy,'  legalized plunder and exclusion from society, so it precedes the death of the envied, as was the case with Cain before he murdered his brother.

The systematic murder of millions of people in the former Soviet Union was primarily facilitated by two things.  First by scientifically animalizing  'others,' the objects of hatred, resentment and envy.   This was achieved by application of the Darwinian biological and zoological strain of thinking that ultimately enabled Marxists to justify their monstrous crimes against humanity.   Second, by maliciously whipping up and enflaming covetousness/envy within the hearts of the 'oppressed.'

In 1956, Ludwig von Mises exposed the rottenness of envy and resentment fueling the paradoxical reasoning of people who are favorably disposed toward socialism rather than capitalism:

"It is paradoxical indeed that the leaders of these Oriental peoples, while casting longing glances at the prosperity of the Western nations, reject the methods that made the West prosperous and are enraptured by Russian communism that is instrumental in keeping the Russians and their satellites poor. It is still more paradoxical that Americans, enjoying the products of capitalistic big business, exalt the Soviet system and consider it quite "natural" that the poor nations of Asia and Africa should prefer communism to capitalism." (Reactionary Socialism, Mises Daily, Dec. 12, 2011)

Those who prefer the legal plunder or redistributionist policies of socialism,

"...are blinded by envy and ignorance. They stubbornly refuse to study economics and spurn the economists' devastating critique of the socialist plans because, in their eyes, economics, being an abstract theory, is simply nonsense. They pretend to trust only in experience. But they no less stubbornly refuse to take cognizance of the undeniable facts of experience, viz., that the common man's standard of living is incomparably higher in capitalistic American than in the socialist paradise of the Soviets." (ibid)

At the end of WW II, dispirited atheist, communist, socialist, progressive and Christian thinkers began to analyze the crisis the war had precipitated and to reconstruct the civilization it had threatened.  Out of these efforts arose the "new conservative" or traditionalist wing of the postwar conservative intellectual movement in America. (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, p. 30)

Their penetrating analysis of the ideas underlying and fueling communism and socialism such as the total immanent society (omnipotent, all-knowing society), Social Darwinism, positivism, rationalism, naturalism, materialism, collectivism, atomistic liberalism and underlying them all, atheism, led many of them to declare that evil ideas working through the minds of men had ultimately unleashed the catastrophic evils that had enveloped much of the world.  Upon this realization many of them either returned or converted to orthodox supernatural Christian theism.

For example, Douglas Hyde, an English ex-Communist and convert to Catholic Christianity emphatically declared:

"The sanest things on earth are those for which the allegedly reactive, unscientific, obscurantist Church stands and for which she is doing battle." (ibid, p. 52)

"Christianity is the most complete and perfect revelation of the nature of God and of God's will for man," wrote John Hallowell in 1950.   Orthodox Christianity was the unifying thesis of Hallowell's interpretation of modern scientific/ political philosophy:

"....the basic insights of the Christian faith provide the best insights we have into the nature of man and of the crisis in which we find ourselves.  That crisis is the culmination of modern man's progressive attempt to deny the existence of a transcendent or spiritual reality and of his progressive failure to find meaning and salvation in some wholly immanent conception of reality....Only through a return to faith in God, as God revealed Himself to man in Jesus Christ, can modern man and his society find redemption from the tyranny of evil."  (ibid, p. 53)

The Christianity which Hallowell, Buckley, Hyde, Vivas and others defended was not the liberal or modernist evolutionary Christianity of the Social Gospel and Gnostic immanent Protestantism.   It was a supernatural Christianity grounded in what for many early conservatives was the deepest, most terrifying lesson of WW II: the lesson of evil, of original sin:

"We must restore to our vocabulary a word discarded long ago, namely sin," asserted Hallowell.  To Richard Weaver, no concept gave deeper insight into the "enigma that is man" than original sin.  Evil was not just a "bad dream" an "accident of history," or "the creation of a few antisocial men."   Evil is a "subtle, pervasive, protean force," and original sin was a "parabolical expression" of this "immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing."   (ibid, 53)

Eliseo Vivas concurred.   Inside every man and woman he said, lay "brutality" and a "natural tendency" to define value in his own interests (moral relativism).  And this is precisely what powerful, amoral socialists, progressives, and others of the Social Darwinian mindset do, thereby liberating themselves and their malignant allies to maliciously fan the flames of covetousness/envy and hate in the hearts of our youth:

"Atheist teachers in the West are bringing up a younger generation in a spirit of hatred of their own society. Amid all the vituperation we forget that the defects of capitalism represent the basic flaws of human nature, allowed unlimited freedom together with the various human rights; we forget that under Communism (and Communism is breathing down the neck of all moderate forms of socialism, which are unstable) the identical flaws run riot in any person with the least degree of authority; while everyone else under that system does indeed attain 'equality'--the equality of destitute slaves. This eager fanning of the flames of hatred is becoming the mark of today's free world. Indeed, the broader the personal freedoms are, the higher the level of prosperity or even of abundance--the more vehement, paradoxically, does this blind hatred become. The contemporary developed West thus demonstrates by its own example that human salvation can be found neither in the profusion of material goods nor in merely making money.”   Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

The social implications of original sin were obvious to early conservatives who believed that if the West and America were to have any chance of surviving rather than finally erupting in flames and blood, then there must be a revival of traditional Christianity along with the restoration to our vocabulary of a word discarded long ago, namely sin.

Peter Hitchens, author of "The Rage Against God" agrees.  The living, supernatural God of the Bible is the chief rival of global socialist utopians whose power has grown enormously due to the trivialization of sin by the submissive, irrelevant contemporary church and through an alliance with radical Muslims and the cult of unrestrained libido unleashed into the Western world by Freud, Reich, Kinsey and Marcuse,

".... promoted by the self-pitying anthems of rock music, and encouraged by the enormous power of 'progressive' education in which so many cultural revolutionaries work."  (p. 135)

Echoing the cautionary advice of early conservative intellectuals, Hitchens  warns that only the concepts of sin,

".....of conscience, of eternal life, and of divine justice under an unalterable law are the ultimate defense against the utopian's belief that ends justify means and that morality is relative.   These concepts are safeguards against the worship of human power." (p. 135)

Without these safeguards America and the West will be overcome by a tyranny of evil.

The Modern Church: Hell-Bent and Determined on Committing Suicide

In "What the Hell? Vatican caught on damnation of non-believers" Jonathan Owen reports that with a new Pope in place, the Catholic Church is keen to portray itself as accepting, modern and relevant. But a recent suggestion by Pope Francis that atheists could also be "redeemed" by God has led the church to return to medieval rhetoric - with an official Vatican spokesman forced to clarify that non-believers are indeed destined for hell.   (thereporter.com.au, 29th May 2013)

In a thinly veiled rebuke of the new Pope, Vatican spokesman Father Thomas Rosica made it abundantly clear that merely being "good" is not enough to avoid going to hell.  On the issue of "salvation" he remarked:

"They cannot be saved who, knowing the Church as founded by Christ and necessary for salvation, would refuse to enter her or remain in her." (ibid)

On his Friendly Atheist blog, Hemant Mehta wrote:

"We all knew that sense of one-ness and actions-speak-louder-than-prayers wasn't going to last very long." "Atheists, according to Christians, are going to hell unless we accept Christ's divinity. We already knew that. It was still an unusual and welcome gesture from the Pope to recognise that everyone, regardless of beliefs, can do good and 'be saved' - at least it was a step up from what we're used to hearing." (ibid)

David McKeegan of The Freethinker journal remarked:

"We atheists were over the moon when the Pope told us that we were all going to heaven. Then when the Vatican told us that it wasn't true, and that we were going to hell after all, we were sick as parrots." (ibid)

Owen's charge that the Vatican has been "caught" (red-handed) is entirely reasonable given its acceptance of  both Darwin's theory of evolution and Teilhard de Chardin's  spiritualized Hindu-pantheist conception, which if true logically means that Special Creation (the literal and historic elements of the Genesis account) is not true, which by extension, makes a mockery of God's Revelation.    Furthermore, man is not the spiritual image bearer of the living triune God but the conscious product of the 'god' Evolution, there is no transcendent dimension outside of the space/time dimension, there was no fall so man is not a sinner in dire need of a Savior, and there is no hell.  Thus the idea of damnation is a baseless, hateful notion based in unscientific medieval rhetoric .

The widespread acceptance of the 'god' Evolution within and without the Church has destroyed the foundations of supernatural Christian theism and man's soul/spirit as Dutch astronomer, Marxist theorist, and social revolutionary Anton Pannekoek (1873-1960) affirms:

"Darwinism came at the desired time; Darwin's theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma."   (Anton Pannekoek, "Marxism and Darwinism," translated by Nathan Weiser. Transcribed for the Internet by Jon Muller, Chicago, Charles H. Kerr & Company Co-operative Copyright, 1912 by Charles H. Kerr & Company)

If evolution is true then man is nothing more than a soulless hominid and there is no ultimate fixed meaning or higher purpose to life except what we choose.

 " You are born, you suffer, you die — that's it. Perhaps, if you're lucky, you may get recycled as organic manure — but beyond that, you're just a number that happened to come up in the great casino of the universe." (Darwin, Spurgeon and the 'black dog,' Carl Wieland, Creation.com)

Wieland points out that even where Darwin's philosophical materialism is denied by Christian evolutionary theists and progressive creationists,

".....but 'millions of years' ideas are proclaimed, hopelessness finds foothold.  Any 'god' who condoned millions of years of death, cruelty, disease and bloodshed, certainly cannot be the personal, biblical God of love. And if the Bible got it so obviously wrong about the timing of creation as to mislead hundreds of millions of Christians until the present day, how can we really trust it about our eternal future? John 3:12 (ibid)

Keeping in mind the widespread acceptance of 'modern' evolutionary theory by the culturally relevant 'modern' Church, anthropologist Henry Fairfield Osborn, longtime director of the American Museum of Natural History, reveals that Darwin is not its' originator after all, but rather ancient pagans are.  In the introduction to his history of evolutionism Osborn wrote:

"When I began the search for anticipations of the evolutionary theory....I was led back to the Greek natural philosophers and I was astonished to find how many of the pronounced and basic features of the Darwinian theory were anticipated even as far back as the seventh century B.C." (Osborn, From the Greeks to Darwin, p. xi)

Charles Darwin received the idea of evolution from his grandfather, Dr. Erasmus Darwin,  a High ranking occult pagan Mason known to attend séances.  As master of the famous Masonic Canongate lodge in Edinburgh he had close ties with both the Jacobin Masons, the organizers of the bloody revolution in France, and with the infamous Illuminati, whose diabolical cause was overthrow of  the  Church and destruction of Christendom.  Thus Erasmus Darwin was an important name in European Masonic anti-Christian organizations engaged in revolutionary activism.  Erasmus Darwin mentored his grandson Charles:

"Dr. Erasmus Darwin (1731-1802) was the first man in England to suggest those ideas which were later to be embodied in the Darwinian theory by his grandson, Charles Darwin (1809-1882) who wrote in 1859 Origin of Species." (Scarlet and the Beast, Vol. II, John Daniel, p. 34)

Pope Leo XIII issued a famous bull in 1884 entitled Humanum Genus in which he discussed the sinister undertakings of the Free Masons and the Illuminati:

"...the partisans of evil seems to be combining together, and to be struggling with united vehemence, led on or assisted by that strongly organized and widespread association called the Freemasons.  No longer making any secret of their purposes, they are now boldly rising up against God Himself."  They intend nothing less than "the utter overthrow of that whole religious and political order of the world which the Christian teaching has produced, and the substitution of a new state of things in accordance with their ideas (that) shall be drawn from mere naturalism."  (Humanum Genus, Encyclical on Freemasonry)

In his book "Utopia: The Perennial Heresy," Catholic philosopher and historian Thomas Molnar (1910-2010) notes that the two recurring themes of modern humanist ideologies (including Free Masonry and the Illuminati) are monism and evolutionary conceptions. At the root of these two themes there is:

"... defiance of God, pride unlimited, a yearning for enormous power and the assumption of divine attributes with a view to manipulating and shaping mankind's fate."  (p. 227)

In order for god-men to create a new world and a new man, one who is not created in the spiritual image of God but is rather a free spirit whose soul is untouched by Him:

"...the order of being must be obliterated (and reinterpreted) as essentially under man's control."  Taking control "requires the decapitation of being — the murder of God."  (Eric Voegelin, "Science, Politics and Gnosticism,"  p. xv)

Fundamentally, the 'god' Evolution is the pillar of natural science, making it the devilish 'god' by which idolaters have "decapitated God" and seized control of the order of being.  This makes Evolution a powerful magic, a universal solvent wielded by a cult religion's sorcerers:

"(Darwinism is) nothing but a kind of cult, a cult religion....It has no scientific validity whatsoever.  Darwin's so-called theory of evolution is based on absurdly irrational propositions, which did not come from scientific observations, but were artificially introduced from the outside, for political-ideological reasons." (Jonathan Tennenbaum, "Towards 'A New Science of Life,' Executive Intelligence Review, Vol. 28, No. 34, Sept. 7, 2001)

The Cult of Evolution Remakes Mankind as Apes

"Instead of Adam, 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."  (Disraeli, quoted by John Passmore "A Hundred Years of Philosophy," p. 36)

With the triumph of natural science and Evolution in the nineteenth century, the murder of God and the obliteration of His order was cast in the cement of "enlightened" pseudo-science.   Westerners would be cut off from God the Father and their own souls, thereby disrupting:

"....the bio-psycho-spiritual unity of human consciousness...." (Authenticating the Activities of Jesus, Bruce Chilton and Craig A. Evans, 1999)

The modern secular "scientistic" West has almost succeeded in obliterating the souls of its' citizens and now seeks obliteration of the two sexes:

"Little Johnny went to school; There to learn a brand new rule; No longer could the boys be boys Or have their special trucks and toys; Only six, so young and tender, It's time for him to unlearn gender."  (Here At School the Slant is Gay, cited in Our Gay Pride President, David A. Noebel, http://www.worldviewweekend.com/worldview-times/article.php?articleid=7292 )

 Evolutionary thinking as 'scientific fact' has finally reached saturation point in government, law, media, education, healthcare, psychiatry, the public arena and increasingly within the whole body of the Church which seems hell-bent and determined to commit suicide on behalf of its need to be viewed as 'modern' 'scientific' and 'culturally relevant."

The Demonic in Our Postmodern Fabricated Alternative Reality

The article, “Deep Divide of ‘Evil Genes" reports that evolutionary biologists at the University of Connecticut are analyzing Adam Lanza's DNA in the hope of determining if whether an evil gene caused him to go on a killing spree.   (Deep divide of 'evil genes, Julia Llewellyn Smith, Age of Technology, April 11, 2013)

So controversial is the idea that evil may be genetically caused that projects set up to investigate the issue have been shelved after public uproar:

"Scientists are haunted by the ghosts of the pseudoscientific eugenics movement, which held that mankind could be improved by breeding out the bad. Peaking in the early 20th century, its influence led to the sterilisation of mental patients and prisoners and, by extension, to Hitler's ''final solution'' of eliminating the ''Untermenschen." (ibid)

Like Karl Marx, Lenin, Stalin, and Saul Alinsky, one of the Left’s favorite thinkers, Hitler was a psychopath. Psychopaths are spiritually dead demonized human predators who wear a mask of sanity to disguise the fact that their conscience is demonically occluded and their lack of empathy and malignant narcissism permits them to negate reality and impose on their victims a false reality made up of distortions and fabrications.  They can imitate feelings but what drives them is a ravenous hunger for what they are after, which is making others suffer. Just as normal humans enjoy seeing other people happy and thriving, the psychopath enjoys the opposite.

Lack of empathy results in blindness to the humanity of their victims which in turn permits them to be sacrificed without remorse on the altar of narcissism, for with the negation of humanity intended victims are no longer human beings but objects to be used, abused, tormented and discarded at will.  This monstrous evil finds expression over and over in the writings of the sexual psychopath, the Marquis de Sade:

"The philosopher sates his appetites without inquiring to know what his enjoyments may cost others, and without remorse."  (Libido Dominandi, E. Michael Jones, p. 26)

Though such individuals are not the actual devil they are of like mind with him and their mesmerizing powers of persuasion come from him, thus they seemingly possess a limitless supply of demonic energy, especially when engaged in imposing their will over the wills of others.  Since they desire power for the sake of power, their overriding passion is to utterly control and dominate the minds and wills of others which they poison by manipulating their perceptions.

In "Leftism as Psychopathy," John Ray, M.A., Ph.D., begins by pointing out that moral imbecility is a primary characteristic of psychopathy before briefly outlining some of its other defining features:

"(the psychopath) is unmoved by brutality (except to enjoy perpetrating it); he has no moral or ethical anchors or standards; he is deeply (but discreetly) in love with himself (narcissism) so secretly despises others and thinks they are fit only to be dominated and exploited by him and those like him; he is a great manipulator who loves getting others to do his bidding by deception or otherwise; he is the master of the lie and the false pretense but sees no reason to be consistent from occasion to occasion; he will say anything to gain momentary praise or admiration; his only really strongly felt emotions seem to be hate and contempt and he is particularly enraged by those who have what he wants and will be totally unscrupulous in trying to seize what others have for himself. But above all, the psychopath does not seem to be able to tell right from wrong and, as a result, does sometimes commit or connive at murders and other heinous crimes with what seems to be a clear conscience."

"That seems to me to constitute, by and large, a fairly comprehensive description of your average Left-wing intellectual -- particularly of the many intellectuals who did (and often still do) support in various ways the old Soviet system in Russia."

Moral imbecility is the inability to recognize right from wrong independent of passions (i.e., pride, jealousy, covetousness, lust, envy) and attendant impulses and compulsions.   To the degree by which the moral sense is corrupt, so is reason.   The greater the degree of corruption the more depraved is reason, meaning that moral imbecility can easily shade into diabolism, or psychopathy.

Paul Hollander's book "Political Pilgrims: Western Intellectuals in Search of the Good Society" recounts what morally depraved Leftist intellectuals and liberalized priests did for many decades in the Soviet era. To quote one Amazon reviewer:

"Political Pilgrims is the amazing story of how Western intellectuals embraced Marxist tyrants at the very moment their colleagues were rotting in prison cells, and the common people everyone claimed to be concerned for, were starving. The book relates how cultural and religious leaders from the West, including familiar names, visited the Soviet Union, China, Cuba, and other communist countries, and told the most appalling lies." (ibid, Ray)

Psychopaths seem to have minds of metal and exist in a demonically twisted, upside-down atmosphere more bizarre than Bedlam as affirmed by the Communist magazine 'Iuni Kommunist' which characterizes their inverted atmosphere as a 'devilish antiworld,'

"...which externally is completely like ours (but wherein) man must reply with evil to every success in life." (Marx and Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 106)

 Then the article audaciously affirms the inverted exegesis of Satanism,

"Satan is not the foe of man. He is Life, Love, Light." (ibid)

The affirmation of Satan runs throughout the old Soviet and Nazi systems and in fact, the altar of Satan at Pergamum (Rev. 2:13) unites both.   After the altar had been excavated by German archaeologists and brought to Germany during Hitler's satanic reign, the Soviet army brought it to Moscow after the conquest of Germany.

On Jan. 27, 1948 the Svenska Dagbladet (Stockholm) reported that in 1924 the altar of Satan was used as a model for the mausoleum of the mass-murderer Lenin.   (Marx and Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, pp. 111-112)

While the demonized Hitler mentions in his poems that he goes sometimes "to the oak of Wotan to make a pact with dark forces," Kaganovitch, Stalin's brother-in-law and closest collaborator describes Stalin as no longer human:

"Even when he exhibited some emotions, they all did not seem to belong to him. They were as false as the scale on top of armor...He was not human at all..." (ibid, p. 53)

Milovan Djilas, Communist leader of Yugoslavia, perceptively describes the mesmerizing satanic energy emanating from the 'no longer human' Stalin:

"Was it not so that the demonic power and energy of Stalin consisted in this, that he made the (Communist) movement and every person in it pass to a state of confusion and stupefaction, thus creating and ensuring his reign of fear..." (ibid, p. 54)

Here Uspenski expresses the reality of ideas, which as they are of the unseen world, there are some that will forever mark and poison the spirit of man:

"There are ideas which touch the most intimate corners of our lives. Once these are touched, the marks remain forever....They will poison life." (ibid)

Today it is America that has passed into “a state of confusion and stupefaction” as it implodes under the powerfully destructive effects of widespread moral imbecility throughout the general population. Even more ominous, thousands of psychopaths exist at the highest most influential levels of American society.  Among prominent ones, John Ray lists Leftist intellectuals throughout academia, Bill Clinton, John Kerry and Obama.

If evolutionary biologists are correct in their assumptions, then moral imbeciles in general and psychopaths in particular are fully caused and determined by stupid genes and evil genes. But increasing numbers of anthropologists, scientific psychiatrists, and other professionals from the counseling and medical field are jettisoning as useless genetic-materialist explanations. These researchers take very seriously the fact that something frightening, hideous and unexplainable by modern Western science is going on here in America and throughout the West. In their search for answers a "new" consensus is emerging: men have souls and demons exist:

"...we need to understand a number of different concepts in order to comprehend the worldwide phenomenon of possession and exorcism. On the psychological level, we have come to know the notion underlying all possession, namely, that the body is a shell, inhabited by a soul, and that this shell may on occasion be surrendered to an intrusive alien entity.” (How about Demons? Possession and Exorcism in the Modern World, Felicitas Goodman, 1988)

"Dr. Frank Lake in a talk on the demonic recalled the occasion when Hans Rudi Weber was giving a talk on Christ's Victory over the Demonic Powers to this large gathering of psychiatrists and theologians. It was quite amusing to see how uncomfortable the theologians were at this strange exhibition of what I think they regarded as Medievalism from a distinguished member of their own theological group. It was as if they were apologizing to the scientific psychiatrists present that a theologian had returned to the era of demons and evil possession. By contrast the psychiatrists were in fact leaning forward eagerly recognizing that the collective demonic is something with which they are continually dealing. As they said afterwards, 'Why didn't some theologian tell us about this before? We know what he's talking about, we live with it'" (But Deliver us From Evil: An Introduction to the Demonic Dimension in Pastoral Care, John Richards, London, Dartman, Longman and Todd,1974)

"In later life, Jung admitted that he was open to the ideas that all these metapsychic phenomena could be explained better by the theory of spirits ....in the long run (he said) I have to admit that the spirit hypothesis yields better results in practice than any other." (The New Age Movement and the Biblical Worldview: Conflict and Dialogue, John P. Newport, Eerdmans, 1998)

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987), a noted German theologian who counseled thousands of people suffering from demonic bondage in its various forms throughout the world argues that sin cuts a person off from God.  Sin opens the door to demonic oppression and possession seen in relation to psychological distortions having the following predominant characteristics:

1. Warped, distorted character; hard egoism, uncongenial dark nature

2. Extreme passions; abnormal sexuality, violent temper, belligerence, tendencies to addiction, meanness, kleptomania

3. Compulsive thoughts of suicide and murder; anxiety states

4. Demonic possession: confusion, delusion; destructive, murderous urges; fits of mania, tendency to violence, inhabitation by demons, conscious atheism, simulated piety, blasphemous thoughts, words and acts and bigoted attitude against Christ and God. (Occult ABC, Koch, pp. 266-282)

The Beatles were completely bigoted against Jesus Christ according to Derek Taylor, their own press agent:

"They're completely anti-Christ.  I mean, I am anti-Christ as well, but they're so anti-Christ they shock me." (Derek Taylor, Saturday Evening Post, Aug. 6, 1964)

In "Hostage to the Devil: the Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary Americans," (1992) Malachi Martin presents five cases of possession which express important elements and basic attitudes that characterize psychopathy in particular and postmodern American society in general. In the possessed person, such as Hitler and the 'no longer human' Stalin, these elements and attitudes are pushed to a very narrow and frightening extreme.

Martin summarizes these elements and attitudes in the following points:

1. Moral imbecility: All sense suddenly seems like nonsense; nothing is ever right

2. Hopelessness confirmed as the only hope

3. Death, cruelty and contempt are normal

4. Moral relativism and/or postmodernism: the depraved insistence that there is no essential difference between good and evil; all 'truth' and 'moral' values are subject to one's personal preference

5. Empiricism: The supernatural and miraculous must be resolved in 'natural' or rational and empirically verifiable scientific explanations

6. Naturalism: There can be no relevance for the modern person in anything that cannot be rationally understood and no 'truth' important beyond what is this-worldly or natural.

7. Androgyny: There are multiple and ever-expanding 'genders' and expressions of 'love'

8. A fatal confusion between spirit (mind, will) and psyche (soul). Of this Martin said, "If everything (of) spirit can be made to seem a product merely of human psyche...then love can be made to seem only a chemical interaction, and love's paradigm is killed."

9. Confusion: One basic note of possession is confusion of the things of God with untruth, sex with gender, truth with lie, good with evil, supernatural with natural. Confusion is a prime weapon of evil said Martin.

In "Three Characteristics of the Diabolical, and how they are Manifest in the Modern World," Msgr. Charles Pope of the Archdiocese of Washington provides three more elements and attitudes characteristic of the demonic:

1. Love of Nudity - This is clearly manifest at several levels. First there is the widespread tendency of immodest dress...“fashions” (that) reveal more than is reasonable and generally have, as their intent to draw attention to aspects of the body that are private and reserved for sexual union in marriage. Too many in our culture see little problem parading about in various stages of undress, wearing clothing that are more intended to disclose and call attention to, than to conceal the private areas of the body. This love of disclosure and titillation is surely an aspect of the Evil One’s love of nudity, and he has surely spread his obsession to many in the modern West.

2. Pornography, though nothing new in this fallen world, has surely reached epidemic proportions via the Internet. Any psychotherapist, counselor or priest will tell you that addiction to pornography is a huge problem among people today. Pornographic sites on the Internet outpace all others tenfold. Multimillion Americans are viewing enormous amounts of pornography and the “industry” is growing exponentially. What was once hidden away in adult bookstores is now one click away on the Internet. And the thought that browsing habits are easily discoverable matters little to the addicts of this latest form of slavery. Many are on a steep slope downward into ever more deviant forms of porn. Many end up at illegal sites before they even know what has happened to them, and the FBI is knocking on their door. Satan’s love of nudity has possessed many!

3. The overall sexualization of culture also ties in to Satan’s love of nudity. We sexualize women to sell products. We even sexualize children. Our sitcoms chatter endlessly about sex in a very teenage and immature sort of way. We are, collectively, goofy and immature about sex, and our culture giggles like horny teenagers obsessed with something we don’t really understand. Yes, Satan loves nudity, and everything that goes with it.

In agreement with Koch and Malachi Martin that confusion is a prime weapon of evil, Msgr. Charles Pope adds:

"And then of course there is the utter confusion that celebrates homosexual activity. What Scripture calls gravely sinful, disordered, and contrary to nature (= παρ φύσιν para physin Rom 1:26) many in our culture now openly celebrate. And those afflicted as such, openly identify themselves with what tempts them. Rather than lament the difficulty and trial of such affliction and offer love, support and truth that they, may live celibately, (as all the unmarried are called to do), our sex saturated culture, blinded and darkened by its own wild lust, affirms and encourages them to indulge what can only bring further harm to them, and others, for it is of the darkness and contrary to nature. They have exchanged the truth of God for a lie… Romans 1:25”   (blog.adw.org, Apr. 8, 2013)

In case four, "Uncle Ponto and the Mushroom Souper" Martin provides us with an example of the hard egoism that is overtaking millions of Americans--- trendy liberalized Christian and secular alike--- without their realizing it and without those around them taking cognizance of it.  While we have been cast into confusion and paralyzed into a stupefied and fearful silence by the counter-intuitive, idiotic proclamations of the so-called scientifically enlightened community of Godless leftist psychopaths and their morally insane liberal lapdogs, an extreme individualism,

"...which exceeds by far the bounds of what used to be known as selfishness and egotism....has produced in thousands of people an aberrant and idiosyncratic behavior which is truly destructive." (p. 25)

These are the conditions of the upside-down, aberrant society in which we now live. From the highest, most powerful office of our land to our universities, liberalized seminaries and churches, Hollywood, 'news' media and mean streets these are the spiritually convoluted, pathologically sick conditions of the false reality in which we and our loved ones must now live, and to a far greater degree than most of us could have imagined fifteen or so years ago said Martin,

"...a favorable climate for the occurrence of demonic Possession has developed as the normal condition of our lives." (p. xi)

Twenty-one years have passed since Malachi Martin warned America of the demonic energy overspreading our society. Dr. Carl Raschke, Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Denver and America's leading authority on America's spreading subcultures of darkness concurs with Martin's grave concerns.

In "Painted Black," he connects the pieces of a terrifying puzzle to reveal the chilling facts and cases behind an invisible wave of evil sweeping our nation. He points out that the hard egoism, decadence, pornography, drugs, heavy metal rock, mass murders, criminality, and 'new religions'  in American culture have certain social and spiritual ties that bind them together, revealing that they are part of a similar spiritual genus manifesting itself in a will to do evil.

However, the demonic does not always manifest itself in a will to do evil:

"Many of today's young Satanists (are characterized) by a metaphysics of exhaustion and despair.  A culture of despair becomes ever easier pickings for the...child pornographers (and the) professional (satanic) terrorists themselves.  Satanism has already yielded a climate of fear in middle-class quarters where fear had never flourished before." (p. 406)

Tragically, our arrogant, spiritually blind Western science does the work of the devil by explaining Satanism away by reducing it to a manageable,

"….adolescent disturbance.  Such a posture hinges on the most incredible delusion that the symbol of the Devil does not at all mean what the symbol of the Devil has always meant." (Painted Black, p. 404)

Without realizing it, Americans are psychologically manipulated, deluded and disarmed by influential psychopaths, whose minds being in accord with the devil’s mind,

"....exploit good people by persuading them that it is wrong to call evil by its name." (Persuasive Wickedness & What We Must Say About It, James Hitchcock)

One of the real horrors of the fabricated alternative reality imposed on us is its positive declaration of a satanically twisted moral ethic which we commonly think of as political correctness with its two overriding absolutes, 'tolerance' and 'inclusion.'  Thus today the perverse claim of 'politically correct' moral imbeciles  and psychopaths to the moral high ground from where they audaciously point accusing fingers at the living triune God, Biblical ethics, pro-lifers, founding principles and traditions and the Americans who hold fast to them.

The Devil’s Greatest Achievement

Speaking of his demonic bondage Little Richard confessed,

"I was directed and commanded by another power. The power of darkness... that a lot of people don’t believe exists. The power of the Devil.  Satan." (The Life and Times of Little Richard, Charles White, 1984, p. 206)

Ultimately, we wrestle not against weak, sinful men, be they ever so morally insane and diabolical, but against unseen power of a far more formidable order. (Ephesians 6:12)

In this light, one of the devil's greatest achievements in our age has been in how skillfully he has interwoven, enmeshed and divided us---one against the other--- in a vast and complex web, a subtly fabricated alternative reality where biological science and evolutionary thinking  have convinced the proudest---the most enlightened forward-thinkers---that all that exists is matter in motion, which means that the living God, immutable truth, moral absolutes, Original Sin, heaven, the devil and hell are absurd beliefs held by only the most backward, uneducated rubes.

Thought-Control in Sovietized America

"Thought crime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for awhile...but sooner or later they were bound to get you." George Orwell, 1984

 "The fact is we are witnessing an all-out drive to impose thought control that seeks to ban the ability — the right — to think or speak for one's self. Thinking is becoming a crime." (Globally Acceptable Truth and the Crime of Thinking, Tom DeWeese, Address to the 10th Annual Freedom 21 Conference, 10/16/09)

The imposition of thought control in America follows the Soviet model where all means of information dissemination including news media, liberalized seminaries, the education establishment, science, and entertainment and music industries were in the hands of trained bureaucratic commissars, or conditioners.  

Bruce Walker, author of "The Sovietized American Media," agrees and writes that Kremlin bosses,

"...had no interest in their subjects knowing anything about the world or having any honest opinions expressed." So what "happened in the Soviet media was the systematic suppression of all real news and a purging of all serious intellectual inquiry.  All news made the party leaders look good, or it simply wasn't news...The media, wholly controlled at every level by the dull Politburo functionaries who desired only to hold their power, perks, and coerced prestige, existed for a single purpose:  prevent any real news from reaching the ordinary subject in the Soviet Union."

"Isn't that the way things are in America today?  The leftist establishment media, which includes entertainment, education, and all the other conveyor belts of information and ideas, ignore the vast ocean of muck which could affect the political bosses in Washington (more and more our Moscow) and instead either present absurdly fluffy pieces intended to make sock puppets like Obama look good or portray the notional enemies of the people as vicious and corrupt."

Not only is there no news as such, but much of what passes for news is gossip, slander and destructive criticism presented as investigative journalism; lifestyle pieces that condition us to accept the latest imperative from the food-police or alternative lifestyle-choice directors; fear-inducing arguments for more gun control since racism, homophobia and sexism are serious problems caused by traditional Judeo-Christian religious values that make people dangerous maniacs.

Those familiar with Orwell's Oceania in 1984 recognize the patterns, said Walker,

"The Ministry of Truth published stories about an increase in the chocolate ration even as the chocolate ration was actually being decreased.  Those people whose very existence might have threatened the totalitarian control of the Inner Party became "unpersons" (and all) news, all education, all recreation was consumed with hatred of whoever the Inner Party demanded was the enemy -- and those "enemies" could change, literally, overnight -- and with a sludge pipe of pseudo-news intended to create the pretense of information while scrupulously stripping off anything of genuine substance or value in understanding the world."  (Walker, America Thinker, May 5, 2013)

Beginning at least eighty years ago, Leftists and fellow travelers initiated an agenda for the take-over of our traditional Christian based culture and religious and tradition sustaining institutions. They succeeded beyond their wildest imaginings.  Today America is a post-Christian society quickly transitioning into the universal atheism and social justice agenda that characterized the former Soviet Union. 

Both communism and the Left are alive and thriving here in America.  They favor code words: social justice, economic justice, environmental justice, gender justice, peace, reproductive rights, choice, sex education and safe sex, safe schools, tolerance, inclusion, diversity, and sensitivity.  All together, this is communism disguised as multiculturalism.

Birth of Multiculturalism

In anticipation of the revolutionary storm that would baptize the world in an inferno of red terror and blood, leading to its rebirth as the promised land of social justice and proletarian equality-Frederich Engels wrote,

"All the...large and small nationalities are destined to perish...in the revolutionary world storm... (A general war will) wipe out all...nations, down to their very names.  The next world war will result in the disappearance from the face of the earth not only reactionary classes...but...reactionary peoples."  ("The Magyar Struggle," Neue Rheinische Zeitung, Jan. 13, 1849)

By the end of WWI, socialists realized that something was amiss, for the world's working class (proletariat) had not heeded Marx's call to rise up in opposition to evil capitalism and embrace communism instead.  They wondered what had gone wrong.

Separately, two Marxist theorists-Antonio Gramsci of Italy and Georg Lukacs of Hungary-concluded that the Christianized West was the obstacle standing in the way of a communist new world order.  The West would have to be conquered first.

Gramsci posited that because Christianity had been dominant in the West for over 2000 years, not only was it fused with Western civilization, but it had corrupted the now worthless workers class.  The West would have to be de-Christianized, said Gramsci, by means of a stealthy "long march through the culture."  Additionally, a new proletariat must be created.  In his "Prison Notebooks," he suggested the new proletariat be comprised of criminals, women, and racial minorities.

The new battleground, reasoned Gramsci, must become the culture, starting with the traditional family and completely engulfing churches, seminaries, grade schools, universities, news media, entertainment, civic organizations, literature, science, and history.  All of these things must be radically transformed, Americans demoralized and dumbed-down, and the social and cultural order gradually turned upside-down with the angry, resentful, immoralist 'new' proletariat placed in power at the top.  Rather than Daniel Boone as a role model for boys, now there would be soft, poly-gendered males and gender-neutral rock stars to emulate.

The Prototype

In 1919, Georg Lukacs became Deputy Commissar for Culture in the short-lived Bolshevik Bela Kun regime in Hungary.  He immediately set plans in motion to de-Christianize Hungary.  Reasoning that if Christian sexual ethics could be undermined among children then both the hated traditional family and the Church would be dealt a crippling blow, Lukacs launched a perverse sex education program in the schools.  Obscene sex lectures were organized and literature handed out which graphically instructed youth in free love (promiscuity) while simultaneously encouraging them to deride and reject Christian moral ethics, monogamy, and parental and church authority.  All of this was accompanied by a reign of psychological and physical terror perpetrated against parents, priests, and dissenters. 

Hungary's youth, having been fed a steady diet of atheism, Darwinism and perverse sex education while  encouraged to rebel against all authority, easily turned into delinquents ranging from bullies and petty thieves to sex predators, murderers, and sociopaths.

Gramsci's prescription and Lukacs' plans were the precursor to what Leftism in the guise of SIECUS, GSLEN, and the ACLU--acting as judicially-powered enforcers--later brought into American schools.

Building a base

In 1923, the Frankfurt School-a Marxist think-tank-was founded in Weimar Germany.  Among its founders were Georg Lukacs, Herbert Marcuse, and Theodor Adorno.  The school was a multidisciplinary effort which included sociologists, sexologists, and psychologists.

The primary goal of the Frankfurt School was to translate Marxism from economic terms into deceptive cultural terms. It would provide the ideas on which to base a new political theory of constant change, or continuous revolution based on culture, and harnessing new oppressed groups such as homosexuals and lesbians for the faithless proletariat. Smashing Christianity, truth, morals and Western tradition, it also built a constituency among small-minded academics who could build careers studying and writing about the new oppression and agitating for tolerance, gun control, rights of terrorists and 'gay' marriage.

Toward this end, Marcuse-who favored polymorphous perversion-expanded the ranks of Gramsci's new proletariat by including homosexuals, lesbians, and transsexuals.  Into this was spliced Lukacs perverse sex education and cultural terrorism tactics.  Gramsci's ‘long march' was added to the mix, and then all of this was wedded to Freudian psychoanalysis and psychological mind-conditioning techniques. The end product was what is now known in the West as multiculturalism.

Additional intellectual firepower was required: a theory to pathologize everything and everyone marked for destruction. In 1950, the Frankfurt School augmented multiculturalism with Theodor Adorno's idea of the ‘authoritarian personality.'  This concept is premised on the notion that Christianity, individual liberty, the traditional family, privately-owned businesses, and self-defense and gun ownership create a character prone to racism and fascism.  Thus anyone who upholds America's traditional moral values and institutions is both racist and fascist.  Children raised by traditional morals parents, we are told to believe, will almost certainly become racists and fascists.  By extension, if fascism and racism are endemic to America's traditional culture, then everyone raised in the traditions of God, family, patriotism, gun ownership, and free markets is in need of psychological help, primarily in the form of brain-altering drugs.

The pernicious influence of Adorno's ‘authoritarian personality' idea can be clearly seen in some of the research that gets public money:

"In Aug., 2003, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced the results of their $1.2 million tax-payer funded study.  It stated, essentially, that traditionalists are mentally disturbed.  Scholars from the Universities of Maryland, California at Berkeley, and Stanford had determined that social conservatives...suffer from ‘mental rigidity,' ‘dogmatism,' and ‘uncertainty avoidance,' together with associated indicators for mental illness." http://www.edwatch.org/  ‘Social and Emotional Learning" Jan. 26, 2005)     

A corresponding and diabolically crafted idea is political correctness.  The strong suggestion here is that in order for one not to be thought of as racist or fascist, then one must not only be nonjudgmental but must also embrace the ‘new' moral absolutes: diversity, choice, sensitivity, sexual orientation, and tolerance.  Political correctness is a psychological ‘command and control' technique.  Its purpose is the imposition of uniformity in thought, speech, and behavior.

Critical theory is yet another psychological ‘command and control' technique.  As stated by Daniel J. Flynn,

"Critical Theory, as its name implies, criticizes.  What deconstruction does to literature, Critical Theory does to societies."  (Intellectual Morons, p 15-16)

In practice, critical theory issues in an ongoing and brutal psychological assault by way of vicious criticism, ridicule, slander, character assassination, defamation and seething scorn relentlessly leveled against Christians, creationists, Christmas, the Boy Scouts, Ten Commandments, our military, and all other aspects of traditional American culture and society. 

Both political correctness and critical theory are in essence, psychological bullying.  They are the psychological battering rams by which Frankfurt School disciples such as the ACLU are forcing Americans to submit to and obey the will and the way of Leftist immoralists.  These devious techniques are but psychological versions of Georg Lukacs and Laventi Beria's ‘cultural terrorism' tactics.  In the words of the demonically energized Beria,

"Obedience is the result of force...Force is the antithesis of humanizing actions.  It is so synonymous in the human mind with savageness, lawlessness, brutality, and barbarism, that it is only necessary to display an inhuman attitude toward people to be granted by those people the possessions of force." ("The Russian Manual on Psychopolitics: Obedience," by Laventi Beria, head of Soviet Secret Police and Stalin's right-hand man)

Double-thinking ‘fence-sitters,' otherwise known as dazed, confused, cowardly moderates, centrists, RINOs and culturally-accommodating priests bear the imprint of these psychological ‘obedience' techniques.  These people are afraid of incurring the wrath of name-calling obedience trainers and have opted to accommodate themselves, their politics, morals and even their churches to our morally degraded culture lest they be found guilty of politically incorrect thought.  At the merest hint of displeasure from the obedience-trainers, up goes the yellow flag of surrender upon which it is boldly written:

"I believe in nothing and am tolerant of everything!"

Genetic Determinism

The linchpin of multiculturalism is genetic and/or cultural determinism, the parent of identity politics and group solidarity.  In its turn, genetic determinism was birthed by the Darwinian idea that man is but an evolved aggregate of matter, a soulless animal whose identity is genetically determined by skin color or sexual and/or erotic preferences.  This proposition rejects the concepts of the human spirit, Original Sin, individuality, free will, and morally informed conscience (paired with personal accountability and responsibility) because it emphatically denies the existence of the transcendent living God of the Bible. 

Consequently, and by extension, it also rejects the first principles of our liberty enumerated in the Declaration of Independence.  These are our "unalienable rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."  Multiculturalism rejects these principles because they "are endowed by our Creator," who made man in His image.

Cultural determinism, states David Horowitz, 

"(is) identity politics-the politics of radical feminism, queer revolution, and Afro-centrism-which is the basis of academic multiculturalism...a form of intellectual fascism and, insofar as it has any politics, of political fascism as well."  (Mussolini and Neo-Fascist Tribalism: Up from Multiculturalism, by David Horowitz, Jan. 1998) 

It is said that courage is the first of the virtues because without it fear of persecution and rejection will paralyze man, thus keeping him from acting upon his moral convictions and speaking truth.  Thus bringing about a general state of paralyzing fear, confusion, apathy, cowardice and submission----the chains of tyranny----is the purpose behind psychological terrorism, for the communist Left's revolutionary agenda must at all costs, be clothed in secrecy and darkness.

The antidote is courage and the light of truth.  We must put aside our fear of rejection and persecution and muster the courage to fearlessly expose the Left's immoralist, evil totalitarian agenda to the Light of Truth.    Truth and the courage to speak it will set us free.

You can be as God: Invitation of the Emerging Cosmic Christ

In the “The Christ of the New Age Movement," Ron Rhodes notes that apostate New Age theologian David Spangler defines Christ as a cosmic principle:

"Any old Christ will not do, not if we need to show that we have something better than the mainstream Christian traditions. It must be a cosmic Christ, a universal Christ, a New Age Christ." The Christ is not so much a religious figure, "but rather a cosmic principle, a spiritual presence whose quality infuses and appears in various ways in all the religions and philosophies that uplift humanity and seek unity with spirit." (Ron Rhodes, “The Christ of the New Age Movement: Part One in a Two-Part Series on New Age Christology," cited in "A Quantum Cosmic Christ," Herescope Blogspot, June 2012)

The cosmic Christ is a rephrasing of Teilhard's Omega and is as well the divine One Substance of Leonard Sweet's quantum spirituality:

"Quantum spirituality bonds us to all creation as well as to other members of the human family…. This entails a radical doctrine of embodiment of God in the very substance of creation…. But a spirituality that is not in some way entheistic (whether pan- or trans-), that does not extend to the spirit-matter of the cosmos, is not Christian." (ibid, Leonard Sweet, Quantum Spirituality: A Postmodern Apologetic ")

By any name, Postmodern Christianity, Quantum Spirituality or Teilhard's New Religion, it is a synthesis of heresies whose primary doctrine is evolution and Bishop Fulton J. Sheen was right on target when he pointed to the influence of the infamous heretic Teilhard de Chardin:

"As one looks at the various trends in our day, one sees that Teilhard’s [de Chardin] conception of spirituality is in the forefront. He knew that he had to pass through many hazards, but he was directed principally to the cosmic world. Others have been directed to the human world. This does not mean to say that Teilhard limited himself to anthropology and physics. His fundamental orientation was “to attain heaven through the fulfillment of earth. Christify matter.” (ibid, Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, Footprints In A Darkened Forest, p. 73)

In his book, "Utopia: The Perennial Heresy," the eminent Catholic scholar and philosopher Thomas Molnar explains that evolution, whether Darwinian or a spiritual conception such as Teilhard's idea, serves as an imaginary mechanism of perfection for both man and the One Substance, an eternally existing or self-created substance which may for example, be a Universal Consciousness, Omega Point, or Divine Mind (mystical pantheism) or perhaps a spiritless physical substance (Greek Atomism, scientific materialism, Marx's dialectical matter).  Either way:

"Through evolution the world substance becomes progressively pure, homogenous and perfect until the terminal point is reached..."  (p.235)  

At that point, there is either a perfected non-spiritual substance  or a perfectly spiritualized substance, the ultimate goal of Teilhard's alchemical great work.  

Whether the substance is physical or spiritualized, all conceptions of the One Substance are expressions of monism.

Monism is held in common by materialism, mystical pantheism, and spiritualism and dates back to pagan antiquity and was or is taught by all non-biblical thought systems from Herme's esoteric magic formula, 'as above, so below,' to Buddhism,  Greek Epicureanism, pre-Christian and Christian era Gnosticism to Quantum Spirituality, Postmodern 'Christianity' and  New Age Cosmic Humanism.

Monism teaches that all things, including mankind, are merely diverse parts of the one-substance.  God is acceptable to this monistic frame of mind only if He is not something outside of and superior to the one-substance but rather immanent or one with it.  In other words, the substance of God must be dispersed throughout the whole substance, and since this divine substance permeates everything, including mankind, it becomes possible to evolve a God out of man.

The powerfully seductive Big Lie, "you can be as God," underlies both mystical pantheist New Age Cosmic Humanism and its' materialist counterpart, Secular Humanism.   This thought is expressed openly in the teachings of Swami Vivekananda , Dr. Beverly Galyean (leading exponent of occult New Age confluent education),  David Spangler and Emergent church leader Leonard Sweet:

"The Buddhists and the Jains do not depend on God; but the whole force of their religion is directed to the great central truth in every religion: to evolve a God out of man."  (Inspired Talks, Ramakrishna Vivekananda Center, 1958, p. 218)

"Once we begin to see that we are all God, that we have the attributes of God, then, I think the whole purpose of human life is to reown the Godlikeness within us...So my whole view is very much based on that idea."   (Galyean quoted by Francis Adeney, Educators Look East, Radix 12, No. 3, Nov-Dec. 1980, p. 21)

"As the energies of the Cosmic Christ become increasingly manifest within the etheric life of Earth, many individuals will begin to respond with the realization that the Christ dwells within them.."  ( “Wonderful Deception, Warren Smith, p. 122, citing David Spangler, The Revelation: Birth of a New Age, p. 177)

"The power of small groups is in their ability to develop the discipline to get people "in-phase" with the Christ consciousness and connected with one another." (Leonard Sweet, cited in "A Quantum Cosmic Christ," Herescope Blogspot, June 2012)

This same idea expressed in secular terms  such as self-realization and self-actualization (a term coined by Abraham Maslow), is a concept that underlies many contemporary psychotherapies.

In carefully couched terms, the  "Humanist Manifesto" (1973) also declares autonomous man's godhood:

"We affirm that moral values derive their source from human experience.  Ethics is autonomous and situational...life has meaning because we create and develop our futures."

The conclusion of both mystical pantheist Cosmic Spirituality and so-called 'scientific' Secular Humanism is the same: human beings can be as God and invent their own "ten commandments."

Another key point at which Cosmic and Secular Humanism intersect  is evolution.    Secular Humanism adopted the Gnostic myth of biological (Darwinian) evolution as an explanation both for the origin and development of life as well as for the perfecting of the one substance and mankind.  Cosmic Humanism springboards off of Darwinism into imaginary spiritual conceptions such as  Teilhard de Chardins' (1881-1955) idea.   The apostate French Jesuit priest  taught that God emerges from matter.  According to him, this evolution of God from the world results in evolution becoming "conscious of itself" and  ultimately, in the transformation  of all matter into "Christ consciousness" or "pure spirit." He called this final stage the "Omega Point" or "the cosmic Christ."

New Age  techniques to get in touch with the "Christ consciousness" include physical exercises, special diets (especially vegetarianism),  biofeedback, chanting, psychodrama, consciousness-raising strategies, hypnosis and self-hypnosis, centering, body disciplines and therapies such as hatha yoga and aikido as well as sensitivity groups and encounter groups, Zen, Tibetan Buddhism, drumming, mind-numbing rock music, brain-altering substances, and transcendental meditation.   

Former guru Rabindranath R. Maharaj, now a committed follower of Jesus Christ, describes his former transcendental meditation ritual and its' terrifying outcome:

"Nothing was more important than our daily transcendental meditation, the heart of Yoga, which Krishna advocated as the surest way to eternal Bliss.  But it could also be dangerous.  Frightening psychic experiences awaited the...meditator, similar to a bad trip on drugs.  Demons described in the Vedas had been known to take possession of some Yogis.  Kundalini power, said to be coiled like a serpent at the base of the spine, could produce ecstatic experiences when released in deep meditation — or...it could do great mental and bodily harm.  The line between ecstasy and horror was very fine...During daily meditation I began to have visions of psychedelic colors, to hear  unearthly music, and to visit exotic planets where the gods conversed with me, encouraging me to attain even higher states of consciousness.   Sometimes in my trance I encountered the same horrible demonic creatures...depicted by the images in Hindu, Buddhist, Shinto, and other religious temples.  It was a frightful experience, but the Brahmacharya explained that it was normal and urged me to pursue the quest for Self Realization.   At times I experienced a sense of mystical unity with the universe.  I was the universe, Lord of all, omnipotent, omnipresent.  My instructors were excited at this.  I was obviously a chosen vessel, destined for early success in the search for union with Brahman.  The Forces that had guided my father were now guiding me."  (Death of a Guru, Rabindranath R. Maharaj, pp. 56-57)

In 2008, Herescope explained the views of Teilhard de Chardin, father of the modern New Age movement:

 "Teilhard de Chardin's "Principle of Emergence" had to do with the consciousness of mankind breaking out collectively, creating an evolutionary convergence (a Noosphere built by spiritual formation) that would result in a "super-organism" of "collective mankind " (quotes from The Phenomenon of Man and The Future of Man). The term "emergent" itself is steeped in Teilhardian evolutionary ideology, and the modern New Age movement has popularized it to mean the manifestation of new examples of humanity's evolution towards this supposed collective consciousness."

"Teilhard also proposed an alternative eschatology, an '"eschatological' vision" in which "in order that the Kingdom of God may come..., it is necessary, as an essential physical condition, that the human Earth should already have attained the natural completion of its evolutionary growth... that the ultra-human perfection which neo-humanism envisages for Evolution will coincide in concrete terms with the crowning of the Incarnation awaited by all Christians" (The Future of Man, p. 280, which achieves "God all in everyone" The Phenomenon of Man, p. 310, italics in original)."

Over a period of decades, Teilhard's mystical pantheist theology has been incrementally incorporated into both the Roman Catholic and evangelical church.  The seeds planted by Teilhard took root in many apostate Christian theologians including Emergent church leader Leonard Sweet, were nurtured along by the Leadership Network, and have now come full bloom in the open:

"...Quantum Mystisicm ....is creating a Quantum Eschatology to deceive the church in these last days." (Herescope)

Herescope also reports that Sweet is associated with an organization called Second Billion,:

"...a downline networking global church growth group with an online Global Church Learning Center www.GCLC.tv where he is on the faculty. This group gives him a global outreach to train pastors in his Quantum Spirituality views. For example, in June 2008 He spoke at a Second Billion conference in Jarkarta, Indonesia to evangelical mission leaders."

On February 29, 2012,

 "...the Second Billion organization issued “A Special Message From Dr. Ken Blanchard” e-mail. The e-mail included a 2-minute video to hear Blanchard's “heart and vision” in promoting a “World Leaders Conference.” Conference Speakers included: Tony Blair, Erwin McManus, Bill Hybels, Laurie Beth Jones, Henry Cloud, Craig Groeschel, and others. (See “What Is the World Leaders Conference?”FAQS and list of sponsors.)
Second Billion has the goal to “double the size of the global church.” Leadership Network’s megastar Leonard Sweet has played a key leadership role, especially at its Synergize! conferences. Second Billion is also connected with the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) at many levels, including shared personnel such as Sunday Adelaja and Jim Garlow.  An e-mail sent out 7/13/07 promoted the Dominionist ideal, “Be equipped to impact ‘seven spheres’ of society.” Sweet also co-authored Jesus Manifesto with Frank Viola, who has ties to the NAR.[li] Sweet has even published his own Bible version – The Voice Bible: Step Into the Story of Scripture –  where he employs narratives and poetry to tell Bible stories."

In one form or another, mystical pantheism is sweeping our nation.    In his book, "America's Schools: The Battleground for Freedom," Allen Quist warns that it is being taught in our schools:

"New Age religion is now aggressively being taught in our nation's public schools."  A model curriculum has been developed that "is clearly centered on pantheism."  "Much of what passes for environmental education and multiculturalism is really indoctrination in pantheistic/New Age theology.  The ACLU and other similar organizations have no objections to (pantheistic indoctrination).  It is only Christianity that these organizations object to."  (p. 51)

Pastor Larry DeBruyn  summed up the powerfully seductive quantum cosmic deception in his book Unshackled: Breaking Away from Seductive Spirituality:

 "Emergent Christians like Leonard Sweet, who allow their worldview to be influenced by such spirituality, are being taken captive by philosophy and vain deceit.  The 'elements of the world' first enrapture and then capture their souls.  Like Judah who played the harlot with other gods, their fixation upon science seduces them into spiritual bondage. Captivation with the cosmos leads to being captured by the cosmos, the very “system” which Scripture informs us, “lies in the power of the evil one” (1 John 5:19)." (Herescope)

In 1901, Herman Bavinck, a Christian theologian foresaw the raging spiritual warfare of our own time.  Temporally, it is being fought between the defenders of supernatural Christian theism and the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and the promoters of ancient mystical pantheism, evolution and the Big Lie----all who are of one mind with the devil, the father of heresy and monism:

"Unless we are mistaken...the twentieth century...is to witness a gigantic conflict of spirits...More serious and fiercer than ever before, the conflict is between the old and the new worldview."

The Grand Inquisitor's Swindle: the Abomination of Desolation Standing in the Holy Place

In Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel, "The Brothers Karamazov," (1879-1880) the Grand Inquisitor is an important part of the novel because the character represents Dostoevsky's penetrating insight into the fallen human psyche and one of its' most important endowments: moral freedom.   In particular, the Grand Inquisitor symbolizes the principle of nihilism (negation) and rebellion in mortal men such Hegel, Max Stirner, Karl Marx, Freud, Nietzsche, Teilhard de Chardin, and Sartre, who though not the actual devil are of like mind with him. 

The Grand Inquisitor is a conscious swindler who knows that the living Triune God of Revelation exists, yet perversely chooses to rebel against God as revealed through Jesus Christ despite that he knows that his own life is by the grace of the living God. 

In "Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor," Ellis Sandoz writes that when Marx found himself compelled to negate his own being (soul/spirit, or self) because of his perverse desire to show that "man owes his existence (only) to man," and to establish that the "entire so-called history of the world is nothing but the creation of man," he virtually recapitulated Aquinas' argument:

"A being only considers himself independent when he stands on his own feet; and he only stands on his own feet when he owes his existence to himself.  A man who lives by the grace of another regards himself as a dependent being (and) I live completely by the grace of another if I owe him not only the maintenance of my life, but if he has, moreover, created my life---if he is the source of my life.  When it is not of my own creation, my life has necessarily a source of this kind outside of it.  The creation is therefore an idea very difficult to dislodge from popular consciousness.  The fact that nature and man exist in their own account is incomprehensible to it, because it contradicts everything tangible in practical life."(pp. 113-114)

Being of one mind with the devil, the Grand Inquisitor (Marx) suggests that in order to affirm that man is god, the denial of the existence of God has in the past been necessary, thus to further his swindle, he asserts antitheism rather than atheism, which is merely a negation of God that nevertheless postulates the existence of man through this negation.  The complete negation of God requires that man and nature (matter) be of the same substance.  As matter is soulless, then so is man.

For the conscious swindler, the prudent course is to flatly deny the existence of God and enforce this dictate by way of psychological manipulation and if need be, by murder.  Terrorize believers into groveling submission, and even better, accommodation, by way of harsh scorn, cruel ridicule, slander and charges of insanity.  

 The Inquisitor also knows that if men are deprived of the living God they will worship something else.  Thus as Marx, the Inquisitor proffers the natural religion of scientific socialism and dialectical materialism (evolutionary theory).  But when Darwin published his own theory, the Inquisitor immediately perceived its' philosophical materialist implications.  The idea that humans evolved by chance and natural selection from primordial water or lifeless chemicals lay the axe at the very foundation of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and provided the scientific framework to support the economic infrastructure on which Marx could build his godless communist utopia:

"...the biggest thing going for Darwinism was that it finally broke the tyranny in which Christianity had held the minds of men for so many centuries." (F. Hoyle and C. Wickramasinghe, "Evolution From Space," 1983, pp. xiii-xxii, 81 and 145)

In the time-tested knowledge that appeals to pride work most every time, the Inquisitor describes the Genesis account as nothing but myth believed by backward unscientific rubes. All of the really forward-thinking people, cooed the Inquisitor, believe evolution.  Evolution is a scientific fact that not only tells us where we come from  but,

"....tells us where we came from, how we got here, and perhaps where we are going. Quite simply, it is science’s version of Roots, except it is the story of us all." (Professor S.J. Gould, quoted in Time, May 1983, p. 35)

The Inquisitor (Teilhard) knows that men long to deify themselves as of old so he begins a New Religion that combines Darwinian evolution, Hermetic magic and Hindu-style mystical pantheism.  This will be a better Christianity.  Look,  I've taken the personal God out of His heaven so He will,

".....become the soul of the world; our religious and cultural stage calls for this.” (Lettres a Leontine Zanta, quoted by von Hildebrand in Trojan Horse in the City of God, 1967, p. 239)

See, we have killed Him, declared the Inquisitor (Nietzsche).  And now,

 "Do we not dash on unceasingly?  Backwards, sideways, forwards, in all directions?  Is there still an above and below? Do we not stray...through infinite nothingness?  Does not empty space breathe upon us?  ...Does not night come on continually, darker and darker?"  (Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, Eugene Rose, p. 108)

It was Nietzsche, the apostate Christian philosopher who was the first to gaze fully upon man's loss of the personal God and faith and its terrifying consequences.  With no living God to obstruct his vision, the nihilism he saw was agonizing.  

In "The Gnostic Religion," Hans Jonas provides a full-scale study of the heretical world of pre-Christian and Christian era Gnostic nihilism together with its modern variant--- metaphysical nihilism, the consequence of the complete negation of God and reduction of man to matter.

Jonas writes that while ancient Gnostic man is thrown,

"...into an antagonistic, anti-divine, and therefore anti-human nature, modern (Gnostic) man (is thrown) into an indifferent one." (p. 338, emphasis added)

Whereas the ancient gnostic conception is still anthropomorphic despite the nihilism, hostility and demonic, its modern counterpart with its' indifferent nature, its' completely godless, soulless, spiritless nature, represents the "absolute vacuum, the really bottomless pit."

At least the ancient Gnostic dualism, as fantastic as it was, was at least self-consistent, as there was a source for 'self' (being).   Not so for its' modern counterpart:

"So radically has anthropomorphism been banned from....nature that even man must cease to be conceived anthropomorphically if he is just an accident of nature.  As the product of the indifferent, his being, too, must be indifferent.  Then the facing of his mortality would simply warrant the reaction, 'Let us eat and drink for tomorrow we die." (p. 339)

Peering into the void, the Inquisitor (Nietzsche)  saw only darkness---no entry from the outside into this hermetically sealed world, a world devoid of God, higher truth, moral law, eternity, soul, meaning, and purpose.  The paralyzing darkness that took possession of him was an inner blinding that spreading outward, briefly lifted up its horn to trumpet the death of God before falling into madness.

Hans Jonas comments:

"...modern nihilism (is) infinitely more radical and more desperate than gnostic nihilism ever could be for all its panic terror of the world and its defiant contempt of its laws.  That nature does not care, one way or the other, is the true abyss.  That only man cares, in his finitude facing nothing but death, alone with....the objective meaninglessness of his projected meanings, is a truly unprecedented situation." (Jonas, p. 339)

This was precisely the Inquisitor's point.  With the death of God objective meaninglessness and universal madness would eventually penetrate every avenue of thought and life, making life itself unbearable. 

"...they seek my soul to destroy it..." Psalm 63:9

 The Inquisitor's great swindle has succeeded beyond all expectation.  The triumph of naturalism, Darwinism and other naturalistic evolutionary conceptions in the nineteenth century has meant the negation of the Divinely inspired Genesis account of creation ex nihilo delivered to Moses who was in the wilderness with the angel.

The “angel” who spoke with Moses at Sinai, delivering unto him the “living oracles” (Scriptures) was the Word begotten of God before all creation (John 1:1-5), the Lord Jesus Christ Himself in a pre-incarnate theophany:

"... which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us." (Acts 7:38)

Jesus Christ, the “angel” who spoke with Moses at Sinai, is the Creator.  Foremost of His miracles is creation out of nothing—six acts or days of creation rather than the billions of years of evolutionary process out of lifeless matter in conjunction with transmigration and reincarnation as modern wisdom holds:

The first moment of time is the moment of God’s creative act and of creation’s simultaneous coming to be.” (Philosopher and New Testament scholar William Lane Craig quoted in “If God created the universe, then who created God?’ by Jonathan Sarfati, Creation Ministries International)

On the miraculous creation of the first man Church Father John Chrysostom writes:

And God formed man of dust from the earth, and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul….the inbreathing communicated to the one created out of earth the power of life, and thus the nature of the soul was formed.  What does a living soul mean?  An active soul, which has the members of the body as the implements of its activities, submissive to its will.” (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Seraphim Rose, p.215)

The negation of our Lord's Divine revelation results in the following consequences:

First, whether wittingly or unwittingly, Jesus Christ has been made into a liar.

Second, there is no logical source for either life or soul/spirit:

"Instead of Adam, 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."  (Disraeli, quoted by John Passmore "A Hundred Years of Philosophy," p. 36)

Third, the Abomination of Desolation now stands in the Holy place materializing the souls and blinding the eyes of men that they not see Jesus Christ, the Physician of our souls who came to heal the spiritually sick that they may live:

"..... I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life..." Deuteronomy 30:19-20

But sinful men really prefer the bread (stones) of the world to Jesus Christ's heavenly bread, intoned the Inquisitor (Teilhard).   Like me they detest,

 "...all those goody-goody romances about the saints and the martyrs! Whatever normal child would want to spend eternity in such boring company?" (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 584)

Being of one mind with the devil, the Inquisitor knows the secret of human nature.  It was made known during the time that God spent on earth as the Christ and was tempted in the wilderness.   The secret was made known there but was ignored, said the Inquisitor, because God would not deprive men of the freedom of good and evil and of either heavenly bread and paradise or earthly bread and outer darkness.

The secret and fundamental axiom of the devil is that "mankind worships its belly," which means that the,

"...promised bread of heaven can never compare with 'earthly bread in the eyes of the weak, ever sinful and ignoble race of man." (Sandoz, p. 117)

The devil adds that among sinful rebellious men at every level of society there is a universal craving to find "community of worship" where there will be no dispute about whatever earthly stones are to be worshipped.   It must be established so that all can agree and be united in satisfying their pungent cravings.    Whether inside or outside of the apostate and accommodating church,

"....earthly bread fills these qualifications better than anything else" since  man's "greatest anxiety is to be rid of his freedom."   From President to Congressman, Hollywood actor, scientist, lawmaker and priest, man can readily dupe himself into surrendering his moral freedom,

"...to those who are skillful enough to appease his conscience." (Sandoz, pp. 117-118)

The triumph of the devil and his Inquisitors is seen by the masses of dehumanized Westerners and Americans, both secular and worldly Christian, who being thoroughly preoccupied with the bread and circuses of this world, cannot apprehend the lie of naturalism and evolution or perceive the Abomination of Desolation standing in the Holy Place.

Dante's Inferno: Circle 6 for the Heresy of Materialism

Dante's Inferno categorically presents the different strata of sin. The concept of sin revolves around the rejection of God's Revelation and Christian virtues. 

 Circle 6  (Canto 10) is the place of torment for all who commit the sin of heresy in deference to "profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called" (1 Timothy 6:20).   Among the heretics are both the materialists of his own time as well as the Greek nature philosopher Epicurus (341-270 B.C.E).   While the common definition of materialism is love of pleasure, wealth, and things for example, the presence of Epicurus points to something far worse, something altogether sinister.

Epicurus was one of the important theorists in ancient Greek natural philosophy who taught that the universe is composed of physical atoms. Indian Buddhists such as Dharmakirti and others, also contributed to well-developed theories of atomism,  the idea that everything ultimately consists of aggregates of matter.  Reality, soul, and mind are nothing but matter in motion.

Atomism is metaphysical nihilism, 

"... the theory that there are no objects (objects do not exist). This position has been held by philosophers such as Parmenides, Buddha, Advaita Vedantins, and perhaps Kant (according to some interpretations of his transcendental idealism). Blob theory can also be considered very closely aligned with mereological nihilism (there are no parts and wholes). Obviously if metaphysical nihilism is correct, empirical reality is an illusion." (What is Metaphysical Nihilism? OpenTopia.com)

What this means is that so radically has atomism banished God from nature that not only is there no ultimate source for life but none for man's 'self'---- his soul/spirit, the seat of his personhood:

Jesus to Buddha,   "You seek to solve the problem of suffering, and in order to solve it, you say that the self doesn't exist.....you took God away from them (and) your espousal of an absence of self is the most unique and fearsome claim you made...First, you told them there is no God. Then you told them there is no self.  You also told them there is no one to pray to.  You told them there is no evil one to fear. You told them everything is only within themselves, even though those selves do not exist."  (The Lotus and the Cross: Jesus Talks with Buddha, Ravi Zacharias, pp.59, 60, 67, 70)  

Atomism set all things in unceasing, purposeless motion by reducing everything---including man, his soul, and even his thoughts---to mindless atoms perpetually colliding with each other in a void.  Man was reduced to a biological machine, mind (spirit) to brain, and thought to movement of chemicals and firing of neurons.  This view has changed very little:

"We are descended from robots, and composed of robots..."   --Daniel C. Dennett, Kinds of Minds

Plato was one of the most forceful and compelling critics of Atomism.  In Book X of Laws, he indicts  Atomists for reversing the natural order, which they did by placing non-life bearing matter before Nous (mind/soul), and for the reductionism that sets everything in motion and reduces man to a machine. 

Plato foresees only misery, social disintegration and ultimately,

"...the ruin of both states and families" should Atomism become the accepted view."  (Darwin Day in America, John G. West, p. 6)

Though Christianity reared a mighty barrier against Atomism, it would be resurrected along with ancient esoteric doctrines during the Renaissance by among others, pantheist Giordano Bruno, Thomas Hobbs, Descartes, and Paracelsus.

With the source of man's humanity (mind/soul) expropriated by materialists and conferred upon "lifeless chemicals" "electricity" "phosphorous" and "blood," for example, a rush to discover the key that unlocks the mystery to life and mind was ignited which has been unleashing unspeakable evils ever since. 

Believing that some type of electricity was the animating principle of machine-man, Giovanni Aldini performed macabre experiments on the decapitated heads of animals and once he had overcome his repugnance, on humans.  For his experiments, he procured the freshest specimens possible by placing himself,

"....under the scaffold, near the axe of justice..."   Rationalizing his horrible experiments by saying that only the, "unenlightened part of mankind (will be) apt to entertain a prejudice..."  Aldini applied electricity to various parts of decapitated human heads which produced "the most horrid grimaces (but the) action of the eyelids was exceedingly striking.."  (Darwin Day in America, p. 15)

Julien de la Mettrie (1709-51), Paul Henri Thiery, and Baron D'Holbach (1723-89) all agreed that the mind is the property of dead matter and man nothing but a machine.  La Mettrie speculated that machine-man's rational life is entirely determined by physical causes  running the gamut from raw meat, to climate, blood circulation, and gender.  Genetic inheritance, posits la Mettrie, causes machine-man to commit crime.  This view casts parents, and especially all traditionalists such as faithful Christians and Jews into the role of "first cause" and would later manifest itself in the belief that State ‘experts,'  or Hillary's "village" experts should have control of children.   (ibid, pp. 16-18)

Pierre Simon Laplace (1749-1827) viewed scientific materialism as not only the pursuit of God-like omniscience but of the Holy Grail itself---power to create a New Man.   If an intelligence could grasp "at a given instant...all the forces by which nature is animated" proclaimed Laplace, it could devise a mathematical formula that would predict everything that would ever happen, and "nothing would be uncertain, and the future, like the past, would be open to its eyes."  Scientists should reduce everything in the universe to mechanical laws that could be expressed in terms of mathematics, advised Laplace, for the promise of such knowledge was incredible power...even over life and mind itself.  (ibid, p. 20)

Herbert Spencer, Fechner, Lotze, Wundt, and the pantheist monist Ernst Haeckel, inventor of the scientism dictum---ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny---all agreed that life and mind are properties of dead matter.  Haeckel moreover imagined ether to be the primitive life-making substance which, as was the case with the primitive fire of the Stoics, changed one part of itself into inert mass while the other part became the active principle, spirit.  Today, many scientists routinely resort to Haeckel's postulate without ever inquiring into its pantheist implications.

Haeckel would later write,

"Pantheism teaches that God and the world are one...pantheism is...an advanced conception of nature (and) a polite form of atheism."  The truth of pantheism, confessed Haeckel, "lies in its destruction of the dualist antithesis of God..."  The godless world system being constructed, said Haeckel, "substantially agrees with the monism or pantheism of the modern scientist."  (Monism, Ernst Haeckel, www.pantheist.net/)

During the century to follow, Charles Darwin (1809-82)  helped spread materialism to the masses.   As Stephen Jay Gould argues,

"Darwin applied a consistent philosophy of materialism to his interpretation of nature, "and "the ground of all existence; mind, spirit, and God (are reduced to) neural complexity." (ibid, p. 41)

According to Darwin, natural selection and the laws of heredity acting on matter produced mind, morality, and civilization.  By describing how lifeless natural mechanisms caused the complexity of life to alchemically emerge from lifeless matter, Darwin helped transform materialism from a fantastically bizarre tale told by power-mad Prometheans on the fringe of society to a hallowed scientism principle enshrined and worshipped by modern scientism and ‘enlightened' Westerners and inadvertently by intellectually proud and weak priests who have supplanted the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo with Darwin's materialist theory.

It was during this time that Social Darwinism, Progressive Liberalism, Socialism, Communism, Nazism, Secular Humanism and Transhumanism were developed out of metaphysical materialism.  Classical Liberalism on the other hand, was subverted and corrupted by the materialist faith into what is now known as modern Liberalism. 

Of these, Communism (Marx and Engel's dialectical materialism), is considered to be the most highly developed philosophy of materialism.  It rests on three fundamental metaphysical presuppositions:

1. Deified Matter: The Ultimate Substance which, though non-living, non-intelligent, and non-conscious, nevertheless somehow possesses the emergent properties of life, mind, consciousness, and soul.

2. Evolution: Since Marxist dialectic requires a theory with clashes (thesis and antithesis) and leaps (synthesis), Marxists have all but abandoned Darwinism and have instead embraced punctuated equilibrium:

"Many people confound dialectic with the theory of evolution," noted G. Plekhanov. "Dialectic is, in fact, a theory of evolution. But it differs profoundly from the vulgar (Darwinian) theory of evolution." (Fundamental Problems of Marxism, 1929, p. 145)

3. Spontaneous Generation: An offshoot of specifically Darwinian thought accepted unreservedly by Marxists as their dialectic requires a strictly materialist explanation for the origin of life from dead matter. In the words of M.A. Leonov:

"Marxist philosophical materialism remains beyond all doubt that at some time or other in the remote past, life must have arisen from non-living matter." (Outline of Dialectical Materialism, 1948, p. 494)

In a modified version of the Stoic conception of the earth as a living organism possessed of its own soul,  dialectical materialism declares that earth is "one entire organism...its organs the various races and nations of men."  Not only is the earth alive and evolving upward on evolution's magical escalator, but so too are history and society, for they also are living entities in a continuous state of motion.  And man?  In a modified conception of Atomism's dehumanizing view of man, dialectical materialism states that man is nothing but,

"...a colonial aggregation of cells," and to "consider him an individual would be an error."  Man---the aggregate of cells--- is nothing but an extension of society, history, and earth.  (Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics, Chapter II: The Constitution of Man as a Political Organism)

It was Marxist materialists who made the first attempt to scientifically re-engineer human beings after the fashion of Buddha's metaphysical nihilism said Vishal Mangalwadi, India's foremost Christian intellectual.  After seizing control of Russia, they utilized terroristic mind-conditioning techniques and re-education with emphasis on Darwinism as well as brain-altering drugs, electro-shock therapy, torture, and other brutal measures to,

"...liquidate all expressions of individual identity in favor of an impersonal collective, communal consciousness." (The Book that Made Your World, Mangalwadi,  p. 74)

Modern materialist states began by rejecting the living God of Revelation and man's soul/spirit, and then moved to deny immutable truth and objective standards of right and wrong.  They threw out sanctity of life and demonically reduced man to matter in motion.   The end case, in every instance, was to place absolute power over  "atomized masses" into the hands of psychopaths and autocratic states to be wielded without restraint or mercy.  

Of all belief systems, the materialist faith has been by far the bloodiest.  In his book, Death by Government, R.J. Rummel comprehensively details the roughly 170 million people murdered by materialist governments during the 20th century. 

From 1917 to its collapse in 1991, the Soviet Union liquidated about 62 million.  During Mao Tse-tung's reign, 35,236,000 were murdered.  Hitler's Nazi's killed 21 million.   

 Even at its mildest, as is thus far the case here in America, there is a steady level of confiscation, corruption, fraud, lying, propaganda, and stifling of freedoms and free speech.  For the first time ever, Americans are afraid of saying certain words.  Parents fear disciplining their own children.  To dissent against evolution is to become a social leper.   More ominously, America's Ruling Class materialists have banished the living God of Revelation, thrown out both sanctity of life and objective standards and are in process of undermining and destroying traditional marriage.   In their eyes,  "We the people" are atomized beings.   Totalitarianism and genocide loom just over our horizon.

As early as 1926, President Calvin Coolidge was aware of and deeply concerned by the insidious spread of scientific materialism in America.  As he knew, Americans are free only because of the Judeo-Christian foundation laid by the country's founders.  In a speech he delivered in Philadelphia, July 5, 1926 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, Coolidge tried to call Americans back to their Judeo-Christian heritage.   He told them the Declaration's principles of liberty arise from man's God-given inalienable rights.  And these are found said Coolidge,

"...in the texts, the sermons, and the writings of the early colonial clergy..."  The clergy preached equality "because they believed in the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man."  Sanctity of life, the right to self-defense, and all the rest of our individual liberties were justified "by the text that we are all created in the divine image, all partakers of the divine spirit."  God's children therefore, have no "superiors;" there are no modern-day "divine rights kings" who possess "any right to rule...over them."    (Back Fired, William Federer, pp. 269-271)

The Declaration said Coolidge,

"....is a great spiritual document."  Its principles are not material but spiritual.  "Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man---these are not elements we can see and touch.  They are ideals (whose) source and roots (are) in religious convictions.  They belong to the unseen world."

President Coolidge cautioned Americans that,

".....unless the faith of the Americans in these religious convictions is to endure, the principles of our Declaration will perish.  We can not continue to enjoy the result if we abandon the cause."

Coolidge ended his speech with a stark warning,

"We must not sink into a pagan materialism..."   (Back Fired, William Federer, pp. 269-271)

Heedless to Coolidge's warning, "we the people," whether outside the church or within it, have embraced the sin of materialism in the form of endless pleasure, wealth, status symbols, and so forth.   Stupefied by "pagan materialism" we have in effect ceded control of our children and our country to today's other heretics, America's materialist Ruling Class who, believing they are "enlightened" and "scientific,"  have unleashed misery, social disintegration and ultimately, as Plato foresaw, are bringing about "the ruin of both states and families."  

Today's Atomists are leading America over the Gadarene Cliff.

In this light, we are able to understand why Dante placed both the materialists of his own time as well as the Greek nature philosopher Epicurus in the 6th circle of the inferno.
