Scientism, the Religion of Closed Minds


SCIENTISM A recent dialogue with a young man from Manchester exposed the awful prejudice against the Gospel that seems to permeate the younger generation.

It all began when I commented that our school children should be allowed to make up their own minds on how our world came into being, that the arguments for Evolution should be presented together with those for Intelligent Design.

“I’m happy for them to have ‘all’ the evidence and then let them make up their own minds, isn’t that what education is about?” I wrote.

“you can tell them that people believe in god. But you could never give them any evidence because there is none.” Was one of the replies.

Links to peer reviewed research from the Discovery Institute simply resulted in a plaintiff cry to a certain Mr Dawkins for evaluation.

Suggesting that they see for themselves that many eminent ‘scientists’ are not convinced by the fairy tale called ‘evolution’ I gave them this link:

Pointing out that the so called ‘big bang’ is not and cannot be scientifically verified cut no ice. Attempts to demonstrate that there are other types of ‘evidence’, and that our whole study of history and that of our law courts relies upon evidence and facts was dismissed as make believe.

This quickly exposed the hand of my correspondent, the only evidence allowed is what he deigns to be evidence. Nothing must be allowed except that which he decides can be scientifically verified. This is religion at it’s worst – Scientism!

From here on in abuse and ridicule became their way to deal with serious discussion, no matter what I proposed, the self appointed judge and jury of Scientists barred it as inadmissible.

THERE ARE NONE SO BLIND AS THOSE WHO WILL NOT SEE.

My assertion that there is historical evidence for the existence of God in the resurrection of Jesus Christ is simply scorned:

“every one of the pieces of evidence was simply someone’s account of the event. That isn’t evidence by any measure”.

“there’s no actual physical evidence to support it. Just what’s written in people’s accounts of the event.”

By this standard our courts of law have no basis for operation, and history has just become bunk!

I’M GLAD TO SAY THAT DESPITE THE BLUSTER AND SMOKE SCREEN THE EVIDENCE FOR GOD’S EXISTENCE STANDS UNTARNISHED.

Look here I said:

But closed minds have no place for facts, they simply spew a flood of scorn!

I even wanted him to see that his own arguments have been ably demolished, but to no avail:

I DREAD THE DAY SUCH PEOPLE ARE IN POSITIONS OF POWER AND INFLUENCE.

But wait, it’s too late, Scientism has become the official religion of our education system.

What are we to do? Be Patient, Watch and Pray. Those Ivory Towers Will Tumble.

Matthew 16:18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.

Revelation 11:15 Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!”

“I like Dawkins”,

“you do,

………here,

………….have this free book”,

Dealing with Dawkins

“no, I believe in science”,

“so do I, have this book


…..and you’ll see

…….where Dawkins doesn’t”,

“No thanks.”

And off he vanished

WE LIVE IN DAYS WHERE MINDS ARE CLOSED,

THINKING AND REASONING HAVE BEEN RETIRED!

Neutered By The Concept of Evolution!

Mesmerised by the flashing light of a television screen, millions have embraced ‘the lie’ that we are self made and therefore have no God to whom we must answer.

2 Thessalonians chapter 2 and verses 9-12 describe man’s present  state:

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

The New King James Version. 1982 (2 Th 2:9–12). Nashville: Thomas Nelson.

And in 2 Corinthians chapter 4 and verses 3 & 4, where we are told:

But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

The New King James Version. 1982 (2 Co 4:3–4). Nashville: Thomas Nelson.

That anyone would suggest that powerful, complex machines like these made themselves would be considered ridiculous.

Likewise, to suggest that our finely balanced world and its amazing inhabitants are the results of an accident of time, should also be relegated to fiction.

SCIENCE is  the study of WHAT exists, and HOW it works, it cannot answer WHY things exist, WHY we are here, WHAT is the point of being alive! It cannot explain the Origin of Life, where the world came from, or what life is all about.

Dawkins says ‘We are all descended from what might have been something like bacteria” [Dealing with Dawkins, John Blanchard, EP, page 14]

“It is absolutely safe to say that if you meet somebody who claims not to believe in evolution, that person is ignorant, stupid or insane (or wicked, but I’d rather not consider that). [New York Times, 9th April 1989]  as quoted in ‘Dealing with Dawkins’, by John Blanchard, EP, on page 14.

When asked ‘What do you believe is true even though you cannot prove it?’ Dawkins replied: I believe that all life, all intelligence, all creativity and all “design” anywhere in the universe, is the direct or indirect product of Darwinian natural selection’ [Dealing with Dawkins, John Blanchard, EP, page 21]

THESE ARE NOT ‘SCIENTIFIC STATEMENTS’, BUT, RATHER THE DOGMA OF THE BELIEF SYSTEM CALLED ATHEISM!

David Robertson summed up Dawkins ‘ position when he told him: “Your view, that the universe is only physical, is a hypothesis andone that is largely based on wishful thinking. In fact, your position is a kind of ‘science of the gaps'”. [David Robertson, The Dawkins Letters, Christian Focus Publications, page 30] quoted in Dealing with Dawkins, John Blanchard, EP, on pages 21,22.

PERHAPS IT’S TIME YOU RETURNED TO THE ONLY RELIABLE SOURCE OF THE WORLD’S ORIGINS, MAN’S ORIGIN AND PURPOSE – THE BIBLE.

Just ask and we will make all that the Bible says available to you.

Taste and see that the Lord is Good.
