At the top layer of secular humanism's naturalistic â€œscientific cosmologyâ€ are atheism, universal evolutionism and the Epicurean notion that matter is the ultimate reality. On the basis of its' "scientific" cosmology secular naturalists claim that not only is the living God Who exists outside of this world imaginary, but so too are souls, spirits, heaven, hell, Original Sin, higher unchanging truths, absolute moral laws, purpose and meaning. All of this supposedly being the case then the teaching and preaching of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo should be banned from schools and even government-funded religion classes as is now the case in the United Kingdom, thanks to the efforts of Richard Dawkins and British humanists. To teach creation in the UK is to lose funding, a pressure tactic we can expect to be brought to bear against America's churches, at least those that have not as yet succumbed to the myth of evolution. That Darwinian evolution is an unscientific, non-empirically verifiable myth is tacitly admitted by D. M. S. Watson, the Jodrell Professor of Zoology and Comparative Anatomy at University College, London (1921 to 1951). Watson publicly confessed that evolution,
â€œ. . . is accepted by zoologists not because it has been observed to occur or . . . can be proved by logically coherent evidence to be true, but because the only alternative, special creation, is clearly incredible.â€ ((December 10, 2011 by Vishal Mangalwadi, revelationmovement.com)
Evolution is a lie. So what about the idea that only matter in motion exists? This too is a lie, as tacitly admitted by Aldous Huxley in his, "Ends and Means: An Inquiry into the Nature of Ideals and into the Methods Employed for their Realization." Huxley reveals that the myth of materialism is not attractive because it is true but because its appeal is to unlimited power to dominate others and to eroticism:
"The philosopher who finds no meaning in the world is not concerned exclusively with a problem in pure metaphysics. He is also concerned to prove that there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do, or why his friends should not seize political power and govern in the way that they find most advantageous to themselves. The voluntary reasons for holding the doctrines of materialism....may be predominantly erotic, as they were in the case of Lamettrie...or predominantly political as they were in the case of Karl Marx." (Libido Dominandi, E. Michael Jones, p.27)
In this light we can see that on the second level of secular humanism's â€œscientific cosmology" are lies, deceptions, negation of everything true and real, and the power-seeking hubris of all who seek liberation from the living God, Original Sin, and Moral Law, for then they may engage in any and all vices free from guilt. Unfettered from unchanging morality and fear of eternal judgment, they are free to lie, cheat, steal, plunder, and force their evil will upon unsuspecting people, who being decent and law-abiding, do in fact "play by the rules."
This brings us to the third and bottom-most level. As secularismâ€™s pseudo-scientific evolutionary and materialist myths explain nothing â€“ not even science--and cannot account for the origin of life anymore than it can explain why random chemical processes in our brains can account for reason, then on the bottom-most level there is nothing.
If all that exists is matter in motion (evolution) as evolutionary naturalists insist, then mind (spirit) and its' endowments and abilities do not and cannot exist. Thus evolutionary naturalism is utterly irrational for it must necessarily delegitimize itself in order to negate the living God, man created in His spiritual image, Original Sin, and all higher things: truth, moral absolutes, purpose, meaning and binary (the real distinct from unreal, truth distinct from lie, good distinct from evil, male distinct from female, etc).
In sum, secularismâ€™s pseudo-scientific evolutionary and materialist myths are nihilist philosophies negating everything true, real, good, and right, thus as Orwell put it, 2+2=5, life is death, freedom is slavery, and love is hate.
For over two hundred years, nihilist philosophies have been working their way through our culture, embedding themselves often unconsciously, within our psyches. This means that not only is the way we see ourselves and America colored by nihilism, but to the degree that our minds have been polluted are we immobilized by apathy, the spiritual emptiness that says in reaction to our peculiarly twisted, degraded culture, "Why bother?'
The strangely twisted, upside-down, brutish atmosphere of our age is the "death of God" made tangible and it is Nietzsche who describes our perverse, disordered, ugly, atonal, brutal, upside-down climate of nothingness:
"We have killed him (God), you and I! ...But how have we done it? How were we able to drink up the sea? Who gave us the sponge to wipe away the whole horizon? What did we do when we loosened this earth from its sun? Whither does it now move? Whither do we move? ...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)
Such is the theater of the absurd in which there is neither real nor unreal, true nor untrue, good nor evil, up nor down, male nor female, normal nor abnormal because the living God is dead, and while America and the West drift aimlessly in "infinite nothingness" nihilism progressively dissolves the foundation of soul, mind, sanity, worth, morality, family, individual liberty and America itself, which is why predatorial "gays" force perversion on our youth, Imams brazenly demand that Americans submit to sharia, and our "ruling elite class" are malignant narcissists who worship themselves as gods.
As gods they deny their own proclivity for evil. The delusional self-conception they hold of themselves is of faultlessness and/or moral purity. But in reality they are haters of the living God who are:
"...lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient...ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God..." 2 Tim. 3:2
The living God is dead in their hearts....as dead as their love of truth... and as dead as their individual consciences, or nearly so. When these materialized souls speak of a god, it is a dead god â€” a god of forces. And when they profess themselves to be speakers of truth they lie, for their words have no fixed meaning.
They are envy-bitten hypocrites who project their own wickedness onto others, that is, onto scapegoats who they daily crucify...psychologically terrorize and abuse. The abuse takes many forms--- from slander and character assassination to baseless charges of hate, bigotry, fascism, and insanity to malignant backbiting, merciless ridicule, and malicious accusations aimed at producing a false sense of guilt that can be manipulated for the empowerment of the evil-willed.
These and other psychological tactics have been systematized by the evil as mind-control and utilized to manipulate unsuspecting Americans through media, schools, universities, entertainment-- ugly, filthy, perverse, obscene TV-viewing, music and art and video games--- science and politics.
America's secular "elites" are nihilists. Their souls are materialized (turned inward), thus they are prisoners of their own cosmically-inflated egos, out-of-control envy, blood-lusts, perversions, greed, gluttony, and wrath as well as of afflictions of the mind â€” paranoia, frightening nightmares, fear of the void, anxiety dreams, evil fantasies, and peculiar ideas. In a Wall Street Journal op-ed, James Taranto describes the growing bloodlust of the nihilistic secular progressive left and how a compliant media whitewashes it:
" America's liberal left is preoccupied with salacious fantasies of political violence. These take two forms: dreams of leftist insurrection, and nightmares of reactionary bloodshed."
Mainstream media suppresses and/or whitewashes the former type of fantasy said Taranto, while treating the latter as if it reflects reality. (The Politics of Bloodlust, The Wall Street Journal, Jan. 27, 2011)
Believing in nothing higher than "self" nihilists know only envy, greed, hatred, vengeance, and violence. Their consciences are depraved and their reason has degenerated into sophistry. The worst of them are sociopathological and pschopathological revolutionaries of the void.
Pride (love of self) is the beginning of all sin said St. Augustine:
â€œOur first parents fell into open disobedience because already they were secretly corrupted; for the evil act had never been done had not an evil will preceded it. And what is the origin of our evil will but pride? For â€œpride is the beginning of sin.â€ Sirach 10:13 And what is pride but the craving for undue exaltation? And this is undue exaltation, when the soul abandons Him to whom it ought to cleave as its end, and becomes a kind of end to itself. This happens when it becomes its own satisfaction. And it does so when it falls away from that unchangeable good which ought to satisfy it more than itself. This falling away is spontaneous; for if the will had remained steadfast in the love of that higher and changeless goodâ€¦.â€ St. Augustine, The City of God, Book XIV
Whether we call it pride, egotism or narcissism, it is always the beginning of all sin, which is why Christianity clearly teaches that sin is manâ€™s disobedience of God. Because of manâ€™s self-love and evil will, he only has the right to go to Hell which is why we need a Savior. The Savior is Jesus Christ the Word become Flesh Who lived a sinless life, was crucified on the Cross for our sins, died, was buried and then rose from the dead and ascended into heaven where He prepares a place for us.
C.S. Lewis once said that heaven is for all who say to God, â€œThy will be done.â€ Hell said Lewis, is for all evil-willed self-lovers who say, â€œMy will be done.â€ And so it will be.
