This is another column exploring the evil sway of scientism, not science, that dominates worldwide behavior. Scientism is worse than the organized religions, which shape individual beliefs into warring and death.
To best define scientism, I saw a joke on the pages of a recent issue of American Free Press:
Headlined ‘war between the states’ the brief read:
“After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year outside NewYork City, scientists found traces of copper cable dating back 200 years. They came to the conclusion that their New England ancestors already had a telephone system more than 200 years ago.
“Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, a Los Angeles archeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet near Oceanside. Shortly after, a story in the LA Times read: ”California archeologist finds 300-year old copper cable and concludes ancestors had 300-year old communication network 100 years earlier than New Yorkers.”
“One week later, a local newspaper in Colombia,SC reported: ‘After digging down 30 feet deep in his pasture, Bubba, a self taught archeologist reported he found absolutely nothing. Bubba has concluded that ‘400 years ago, South Carolina had already gone wireless.”
There you have it ‘scientism’ in a nutshell.
Thus, you are now prepared for a serious journey into the origins of Humankind as seen from archeology and genetics’ of ancient fossil skeletons—alleged real science.
Organized religion is a way to boost ignorance like no other, so to best protect oneself from what billions call hell—adopt a sensible agnosticism that picks and chooses what is ‘rational’ to believe. By rational, I mean utilize presumptive factsbased upon the very few things we really know.
Take the predominate myth of the Garden of Eden and the fall of man. Have you heard about the remarkable “dig”on the Anatolian plain in Turkey/Kurdistan that the archeologist believed was truly the mythical Garden of Eden? Gobekli Tepe: The World’s First Temple?
Having long wondered why the poor Kurds are always treated so wretchedly, This story subconsciously sucked me in with vigor.
The archeological site should have been huge news, but not many have heard, since the mainstream media cares only for King David or Solomon digs, all of which have sorely disappointed mythic expectations for Zionist expansionism.
You get details at Google under Gobekli Tepe—wow! This find has finally knocked my pet Great Pyramid beliefs into a cocked hat.
And, just maybe, the Kurds get blamed for hybrid things, long, long ago.
Not only have the dates for these stone structures been set for around 11,000 BC, or several thousand years before the earliest civilizations, but somebody literally buried the site thousands of years ago in what appears an arduous attempt to hide it from the path of history. Why?
That’s the question which spawned one of the best mystery novels ever written. It sprang from the mind of the journalist who first investigated the Gobekli Tepe site a few years ago.
Writing a novel can be a far better way to tell an important story than using dull nonfiction, regardless how good the writing. A month ago I ordered The Genesis Secret by Tom Knox (pseudonym for Sean Thomas) and I literally couldn’t put it down.
Giving away my ignorance; this book had been an international bestseller for the past several years, and I had never heard of it. There is no way I’d finish off my tired old eyes reading fiction, since I get enough of that from the news.
Knox, the author, combines the lust for human sacrifice in early cultures with the Satanic evil expressed by London’s Hell Fire Club in the 1700s; which is another topic I had previously explored (decades ago). Hence boosting my interest—not that it needed any added boost. Where do humans get this bloodthirsty lust? Did it simply evolve?
If you get this book you will expand horizons as well as have a page-turning good read.
What propelled humans to build societies centered on human sacrifice and infanticide, like the Aztec culture—Among many others? Did a benevolent Creator put such stuff into human minds? Was the biblical Abraham story based on a cultural sacrificial theme? Perplexing questions for most modern people, I presume.
As these things of inspiration go. Serendipity saw that I obtained a strong curiosity about the “peopling of the earth” just about the same time I stumbled over the Gobekli Tepe story.
The author uses the science of paleogenetics well in the book, and Nature featured “Peopling The Earth” in the early May issue—putting many things together in my excited, critical brain.
The novel speculates about whence these early people arrived and Knox uses a “valley of death” site (fictional?) to build to his dramatic conclusion that the massive stone monuments were built by crossbreeds between “giants” and homo sapiens, on the model of the weird and controversial Book of Enoch.
Making me wonder about the ‘scientism’ we have endured from Darwinists for many years regarding the migrations and interbreedings of homo sapiens, and others. Going so far back in time we cannot really Know.
In previous columns I have unveiled my own belief in the specially created human mind, which contains nothing material, that could “evolve”.
Thus, I may be labeled among the Intelligent Design sect. Believing in a Creator God/Designer because the facts of human mind are special and beyond other life forms they stick out clearly—Mind is totally obvious, but the biological matrices that turn mind into behavior are frankly confusing. My mother told me when I was very young, that If God existed, he was a joker.
Albeit God put physics and chemistry into motion without making puppets out of his favorite creature—humankind. I accept the paradigm of free will. And, what is will if not a quality of mind?
Do not construe my telling what I believe to be ‘preaching, I do not care what others believe, if it does not get in my way.
Believing the scientism propaganda regarding the so-called genetic paradigm makes bible-belief seem downright practical. After all the sci-believers fervently pray for such things as claims to find ‘genes’ behind specific behaviors, —the ballyhooed “gay” gene, for example. (A prime example for ‘agenda-driven’ scientism.)
The very first mention of such a gene shocked all credulity in my amateur thinking processes. Despite all the Frankenstein activity championed by the criminals at Monsanto, It is still easy to reject any such human behavior-specific gene on the face of it.
My ‘knowledge’ of genetics rests solely in carefully reading the vast amount of genetic studies published in the two major ‘approved/reviewed’ technical journals—Nature and Science, and in years of association with the work of Peter Duesberg, and his innovative thesis on cancer genesis via aberrant chromosomes. See here: New Cancer Paradigm; It’s About Time!
My skepticism of genetics arose from inconsistencies in this bastion of modern biological research, upon which we middle/masses must depend for far too many things—life and death things.
The organized religion of scientism contains more blindly faithful believers than all the ‘great’religions’ combined—Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, et al. And scientism has an equal number of fanatics that must tell, and compel others how to live. Vaccines anyone?
Since it is pure prejudicial conjecture to suppose which religion has the best notion of truth, I am relegated to reasons for disbelief.
Genes are merely chemical molecules that somehow gained the “intelligence” to generate amino acids into proteins and peptides which build the cell structures and functions of life in all organisms we know about on this planet—from giraffes to viruses. A good trick for ‘chance, undesigned evolution, is it not?
Genes are noted for “mutating” and causing cancer, and they quickly degrade, so televised forensic scientists are flustered at the inability to use them, so how can they identify people who are said to exist hundreds of thousands of years ago with reliability?
That’s not all, genes have more biological modifiers in forms of RNA than we have monkey’s uncles.—so, how do these play in the fossil game? I know about “haplotypes,” coming up soon.
Very clever and intelligent scientific researchers painstakingly over a long time frame devised technical means to make machines that tell us what elements the micro world contains.
The rest of us must have faith; albeit a technically reasonable faith.
Like the doubt spawned when the minister gets rich and powerful from his devoted flock flocking, the nature of investment and corporate profit makes a doubter of me when it comes to disease/health promotions today. And the field of genetics plays first chair.
Critical thinking must not stop at the bible’s edge.
If we are the least bit interested, we can be told authoritatively, that scientists can tell by genes assumed to have been behind the flesh in fossil skulls may give us libraries of information about the hominids (people) who lived in those skulls eons ago.
I’m surprised that ‘agenda-driven’ researchers have not yet claimed a ‘gay’ gene found in some Neanderthal or earlier model. Perhaps Monsanto can engineer one and patent it—wouldn’t that be a hoot?
I must not forget why I‘m writing this—Was all this wonderful mystery created by God, or did everything come along thru time and accident, which would suggest there is no cosmic basis for behaving well—A perfect philosophy for mattoid bankers and politicians, who have no conscience nor empathy, both qualities of mind that somehow elude their genes.
Is it difficult to see these creatures sacrificing babies after buggering them?
Priests from paleogenetics will insist that “haplotypes” of chromosomes (bundles of genes making cells) may be traced back along genealogical routes for hundreds of thousands of years, yet they cannot use blips in haplotypes to clear up how cancer cells originate in people today.
Thus we have the controversy so dear to the hearts of Zionists that papers certifying tribal Hebrews have a history matching their biblical property claims: Jews Are a Race Genes Reveal
Take that! Prof. Schlomo Sand and Gilad Atzmon.
And, South Carolina went wireless 400 years ago.
