The “God” Question

Almost everyone knows the "God" question; it is almost a cultural icon. Most already have an instinctive response to it. When this question is asked, the mind is propelled into a predictable, conditioned reaction. A ritual of rhetoric begins which excludes genuine, critical thought and meaningful discussion.

As has been observed, the "God" question is really about religion and religious doctrine; "God" has nothing to do with the question. When the rhetorical ritual is finished, we have learned about philosophical and religious positions. We have learned about the debating abilities of those involved. This ritual has provided a cloak of darkness for the participants to hide behind.

If you have not guessed by now, the iconic "God" question is, "Do you believe in God?". Here is a question that can be asked of all, which could prompt a more honest, thoughtful response: "Who or what do you worship?", or, "Who or what do you serve?" Without exception, everyone worships someone or something; everyone serves someone or something. Even the professing Christian serves someone or something. Even the professing atheist serves someone or something. Everyone has a personal god that they worship and serve. Usually it is multiple gods that are held in reverent, loving esteem. These are gods such as money, self, appetite, fame, and family. The pantheon of gods worshipped and served are too numerous to list.

Ultimately, whatever is the first love of your heart is what you will worship and serve. These hidden gods should be sought out, revealed and discussed.

The Twisted Theology of Climate Change

The threat of human produced climate change has resulted in a twisted theology from the scientific community. For decades the scientific establishment has worked diligently to become completely atheistic, to rid itself of any theistic influence or belief. Yet, somehow, with the advent of the threat of human produced climate change, the scientific establishment has somehow regressed, embracing theism which it had discarded, long ago. In the process of finding religion, there are scientific, atheistic doctrines which it has discarded.
 
Darwinism holds that the human species is nothing but an animal, produced by natural evolution, simply a product of nature which is no better or worse than any other animal. Using this doctrine, science rid itself of the theistic doctrines of human dominion, human sinfulness, a human messiah, the need for salvation and God, the creator of humanity and the universe. This scientific doctrine seems to have been discarded.
 
Climate change theology holds that the human species is not natural; it somehow is capable of unnatural activities. It follows then, that these unnatural activities are wrong, evil, and damaging. Thus, climate change theology has reincorporated the theistic doctrine of the sinfulness of man! Climate change theology resurrects the theistic doctrine that the human species has dominion (rulership) over the natural realm. Thus, given its position as ruler and its unnatural activities, this species alone has the capacity to destroy the life functions of this planet and is doing so. 
 
Climate change theology holds that this species is ethically required to use its position of rulership and its unnatural abilities to heal the planet and to conserve any threatened animal life, plant life and any ecological functions. This doctrine forgets and negates another tenet of Darwinian theology, which holds that any species that does not change or evolve will die. The lesson of Darwin is clear; the very act of conservation produces the doom of extinction.
 
The climate change theology even has a doctrine of salvation and a messiah! The messiah of climate change theology is government, the so called "policy makers". Salvation is attained when we, the contaminated electorate, sacrifice our liberty and our incomes on the altar of science and politics. The messiah of climate change, the government policy makers, will ensure that the planet is healed. Thus Science and Politics will bring forth Paradise. If we do not comply, we are all doomed to the hell of an overheated planet where we will burn for eternity.
 
Science has become a religion, it has taken upon itself the very egotistical role of the maker of gods. The scientific establishment has become the institution of ethical standards, determining and pronouncing what is good and what is evil.
 
Science embraces theism when it is in their favor to do so, especially when they get to make the gods.
