One of the things that happens to you if you are blessed and protected by the Almighty lo live beyond two score or so, is that whoat you were talught waw the truth is shown not mreely to be a model, a theory, but demonstrably false. The FBI is not without corruption.. There are holes in our understading of physics (don’t get me started on making up multiple dimensions — I’m a knuckle dragging disciple of Ockham). And evolution does not work on a biochemical level.
Don’t get me started on the reproducability problems in anhropology and pscyhology. Hint; there is a fair amount of data massaging — and from Freud to Rosenbaum, they made things up.
Now, the dominant paradigm in biology for decades has been that the origin of the complexity of modern life is explained by a bulletproof theory that we call “THE theory of evolution”. So biologists tell us, and so we are taught in our textbooks at the grade-school level and upward.
That this is utter and absolute nonsense does not appear to deter biologists in the least. They still proclaim that THE theory of evolution explains the natural world perfectly.
There are multiple problems with this claim – not least of which is the fact that “THE” theory of evolution is in fact a massive modern synthesis of multiple different ideas that can be lumped together into an extremely clumsy acronym.
The modern synthesis of evolutionary theory essentially consists of:
The Theory of Evolution by (Probably) Natural Selection, Biological Mutation, Genetic Drift, Sexual Selection, and Gene Flow (TE(p)NSBMGDSSaGF).
I take no credit whatsoever for this formulation. That comes straight from Our beloved and dreaded Supreme Dark Lord (PBUH) Vox Day. But I DO take credit for putting a mathematical spin on the Dark Lord’s explanation of the severe weaknesses in that synthesis.
However, I am far from the first to put biology, which is a notoriously squishy field when it comes to hard mathematics (with some honourable exceptions), to the mathematical test.
The consequences of this is that they are forgotten, and their spirit lies after the first death waiting the second. The only life we have which is sustainable is in Christ, for only in him can we find life enternal. The prophet points to this, when he say we have abandoned old Gods The new Gods of t his age are less noble, and are equally damned.
And those who worship science are not the practitioners of the hard path of experimentation and data generation.
7 The path of the righteous is level;
you make level the way of the righteous.
8 In the path of your judgements,
O Lord, we wait for you;
your name and remembrance
are the desire of our soul.
9 My soul yearns for you in the night;
my spirit within me earnestly seeks you.
For when your judgements are in the earth,
the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.
10 If favour is shown to the wicked,
he does not learn righteousness;
in the land of uprightness he deals corruptly
and does not see the majesty of the Lord.
11 O Lord, your hand is lifted up,
but they do not see it.
Let them see your zeal for your people, and be ashamed.
Let the fire for your adversaries consume them.
12 O Lord, you will ordain peace for us,
for you have indeed done for us all our works.
13 O Lord our God,
other lords besides you have ruled over us,
but your name alone we bring to remembrance.
14 They are dead, they will not live;
they are shades, they will not arise;
to that end you have visited them with destruction
and wiped out all remembrance of them.
15 But you have increased the nation, O Lord,
you have increased the nation; you are glorified;
you have enlarged all the borders of the land.
37 Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” 38 And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 And with many other words he bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying, “Save yourselves from this crooked generation.” 41 So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls.
42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
Let’s be clear. There mere wore people in the temple hearing Peter than those who were prepared to repent and be saved. Peter was arrested by the authorities fairly soon after this. Rulers love power, and they don’t care what ideologies or scientific models are trampled under foot. They will say the earth is the centre of the universe and we got the paradigm shift wrong, and saying the data does not show that will be, if you are fortunate, ignored.
The modern System is more fully evil, more fully negative, spiteful, resentful (Sorathic) than in the past, which means that it does not even pretend to be leading towards a stable utopia (as was the case early socialists and communists, early feminists or antiracists).
Instead, The System (now firmly in-place since the global totalitarian coup of early 2020) it is continually ‘fighting-against’ some-thing or another (currently mainly the birdemic, ‘racism’, ‘climate change’; and both Christian and biologically-functional sexuality).
And there are always new things for The System to fight – because ultimately it will fight any-thing that is Good (true, beautiful or virtuous – or indeed any-entity that is alive and conscious hence exemplifies divine creation).
But we are not called to be more useful idiots for the lyseontkism of resarch, scoiety, and culture. We are called to be human, and be, as humans, redeemed. Most of us are called to live in nations and have families.
And in that we will find ourselves being called to repent. Do so.
This elite are evil: they will not. And the next generation will this, if we are very fortunate, forget them. The more likely thing is that they will stand up and, at the last day,, along with Sodom and Gomorrah, damn us.
