We’re Not in Kansas Anymore

setiFrom the “I Told You So” quote file: 

“When a man stops believing in God he doesn’t then believe in nothing, he believes anything.” (Attributed to G.K. Chesterton)

“What did we do when we unchained the earth from its sun?” Nietzsche

As the west moves away from the Biblical revelation which affirms the reality of the external world, reliability of sense perception and reason (within Biblical constraints), objective truth and the uniformity of nature (among other things), and replaces it with personal opinions, prurient speculation, and private interpretations, we should not be surprised to find all manner of craziness in the headlines. Here are a few:

Aliens (really!)

  • We probably just heard a message from aliens, scientists say
  • Neil DeGrasse Tyson thinks aliens found humans, creatures on Earth uninteresting
  • “Aliens are for real and we can prove it. But we just need some money: SETI scientists tell Congress”

The Matrix

  • “Bank of America analysts think there’s a 50 per cent chance we live in The Matrix”
  • “Neil DeGrasse Tyson Thinks There’s a ‘Very High’ Chance We’re Living in the Matrix” (He says: “What would we look like to them? We would be drooling, blithering idiots in their presence. And if that’s the case, it is easy for me to imagine that everything in our lives is just the creation of some other entity for their entertainment.”)
  • “What If Evolution Bred Reality Out Of Us?”

Feminism

  • “Feminist PhD Candidate: Science is Sexist because It’s Not Subjective”

Trans-isms

  • “Metamorphosis – What’s it like to be an animal” (a trans-species story about a man who thinks he’s a goat. Transgenderism is becoming so 2015.)

This is just a sample. Though there are vast (and growing) differences between unbelievers, they are united on one issue: “Anything but Christianity,” just as Romans 1 teaches.
