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!”
