Turning Science Into a Religion

Have you ever gotten into a debate with an atheist who accuses you of believing in a made-up God that you can't see?  Has he then gone on to say something like "I only believe in science which is all made up of observable facts!"

I've had that discussion more than a few times.

It's funny that when you start asking the atheist about evolution or the Big Bang that supposedly started off the universe, he has to admit that neither has ever been observed. Yet most atheists take evolution and Big Bang (everything from nothing) as a fact.....which means that they have MORE FAITH in their religion than most Christians have in theirs!

The idea that Mother Earth can take rocks, put them into a pressure cooker for billions of years and a hummingbird or alligator eventually comes so laughable and so ludicrous that their religion should be ridiculed into oblivion.

So why isn't it?

This article is likely to get a lot of people out there quite angry.  

In our world today, many have become convinced that science has all of the answers to humanity's most important questions, and those that question the high priests of this new religion (scientists) are often accused of a form of "blasphemy". 

We saw this clearly on display last Saturday when protesters gathered in Washington D.C. and in about 600 other cities worldwide for "the March for Science".  

Those of us that are skeptical and that don't necessarily buy into the scientific orthodoxy of the day were accused of "ignoring facts" and being "climate deniers" by various speakers at these protests.  

But of course the truth is that scientific theories have always been in flux all throughout history, and this will continue to be the case as time moves forward.

Google defines science as "the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment."  

Personally, I very much believe in the scientific method because it has helped us to understand a great deal about how our world operates.

But in recent years, many in the scientific community have elevated "theory" to the same level as "fact", and those that dare to question the most cherished theories of the scientific priesthood are often persecuted greatly. 

 Just ask all of the professors that have been "purged" from universities all across the United States for challenging conventional wisdom on climate change or the origin of life.

I have studied the scientific evidence that both sides have produced, and I have become entirely convinced that climate change is not primarily caused by human activity.

Does that make me a "heretic" according to these science zealots?

According to some of the more radical adherents of "scientism", it should actually be a crime to deny that man-made climate change is happening, and those that do so should be put into prison.

But as a lawyer, I was trained to be skeptical and to consider the evidence on both sides.  And to me, the evidence seems quite clear that solar activity and other factors have much more to do with our changing climate than human activity does.

Does thinking for myself make me "evil"?

It amazes me that so many "scientific minds" are now labeling carbon dioxide as a pollutant.

Do you know what would happen if we got rid of all carbon dioxide on the entire planet?

Every single plant would die, and all life on Earth would cease to exist shortly thereafter.

In fact, there were times in the history of our planet when levels of carbon dioxide were far, far higher than they are today, and the world obviously did not end.

The climate of this planet has always been changing, and it always will be changing, and there is next to nothing that humanity can do to stop this process.

If that statement offends you, that is okay, because the free exchange of ideas is healthy for scientific debate.

That is one reason why I am so alarmed by the rhetoric coming from some of these scientific zealots that seem to be absolutely determined to silence everyone that disagrees with them.

"One of the "high priests" of this new religion is "Bill Nye the Science Guy".  He only has a B.S. in mechanical engineering, and he is best known for hosting a ridiculous kid's show in the 90's, but today he is treated as a rock star by those that have embraced "scientism". 

But what has Bill Nye ever done to deserve this level of adoration?

Just because you have been on television a lot does not make you an "expert" on anything.


As the liberals get angrier and more violent as we reject THEIR god of S&T (science & tech), we can expect they will try to pass laws making the denial of their beliefs illegal.  If you deny that humans are causing the earth to will be persecuted and/or thrown in jail.  If you believe that marriage is between one man and one woman til death do you will be ridiculed and could easily lose your job or be thrown in jail for hate-speech violations.

Notice that this very day, Conservative speaker Ann Coulter, has been told to stay away from the college in Berkeley, CA because authorities there believe the liberals are going to scream, riot protest if she said something they disagree with.

Be careful of liberals, loaded with faith and worshiping Mother Earth.  They can be an intolerant, extremist, hateful and bigoted group of people.  But remember to be ready with your testimony for Christ because maybe God will use YOU to reach one or two of them.

PS....If you haven't yet seen the movie THE CAST FOR CHRIST, I would strongly recommend that you do.  We saw it at the theater last night and I believe it is one of the best, maybe THEE best, Christian movie I have ever seen.
