Everyone has a belief system, even if it’s shunning what they identify as belief systems.
Would humans behave better if they knew God was not there to intervene? No. Humans would make a God when they believe there is none. Used to be King makers, now we make Gods. Scientism prevents its own ideal of no hierarchy or equality among the masses. Many scientism supporters have spoken of founding a scientific elite. Before elites, maybe we should try to better educate our young.
Isn’t it the nuclear bomb that we worship? Like Shiva? In fact, like the Christian church who spends so much time speaking the name of Satan and dwelling on evil, they don’t need a real Satanist. There is too much competition. It’s the nuclear bomb that is the modern God.
That’s why the Americans don’t want the Arabs to have one. The Arabs are godless, literally in that sense. They have no bomb. We make idols now, and our idols explode and poison the land. They have Allah, but people don’t believe over much in the power of a theological God anymore. We know we control our own fates. Allah has none of the power of a nuclear bomb, so now we have technological Gods and human mass hysteria. ‘Oh please Mr Bush save me from the evil Arabs!’
Think we’ll ever be freed from the grasp of scientism? We will eventually see it come to fruition and its paradigm. There are those who see the impact of the subjective nature on the objective world, and they will be working also. Scientism has it’s weapon of mathematics on its side, and its claws in the material world. Mathematical computations are the root of this financial turmoil the world is suffering. Yet, mathematics arose from numerology. The ancient pictographic symbols that were letter and number and concept symbol.
There has to be a cut off point for facts to sustain themselves. The decimal point can have an eternal number to the right and left hand side of it, and our science is to some extent the negotiation of scale. That is a truth of science, though they are looking for a unified theory and defeat themselves in the search. The universe is made of string, but how long is a piece of string? Infinite, and they don’t like that. In the theory of string theory, you are all the time in part. This is why the body has so much nuclear potential. Things endure and much of what they depend on has its roots in entropy. They are the new necromancers, and supposedly are more life affirmative.
Potentially a future fusion with spirituality and quantum physics or is that a pipe dream? It is not a pipe dream, just heavily opposed. Our greatest fear is not that we are powerless, but that we are powerful beyond measure.
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
