This evil people, which refuse to hear my words, which walk in the imagination of their heart, and walk after other gods, to serve them, and to worship them, shall even be as this girdle, which is good for nothing.(Jeremiah 13:10) KJV
Imagine a universe with no God and induce a rationalization of evidence to fit it. Make it into TV shows and movies and fill everyone’s mind with it. That’s what popular science (SciPop) has done.
That’s the paradigm in which we’ve been educated and trained to think. There’s a problem though: God has given us two witnesses to the proof of His existence:
- The beauty of creation,
- our conscience.
What the world wants us to believe and what we instinctively know in our hearts are incongruent. On top of that we also have a predicament:
- Souls are eternal but our bodies will eventually die,
- we have no “science” to tell us what happens to our soul after our body dies.
Our other god, SciPop, doesn’t have much to help us deal with this conundrum, this is the best that it can come up with:
- We can’t detect the soul so therefore it doesn’t exist,
- believe in the Star Trek universe and you’ll be fine.
That’s not very reassuring, especially when we consider the fact the the world is collapsing around us and average temperatures are trending higher year after year.
Our other god, SciPop, wants you to think that climate change is anthropogenic and, if we all work together, we can fix it. This is the great task for our generation: to lay aside all of our differences and unite to heal the environmental wounds of our planet. Either that or we’ll invent faster than light travel and colonize a new one. Don’t worry about it.
We have a whole generation of kids like Greta who are going to fix everything.
Godless people will tell you: peace, there’s no danger of hell. They’ll point to popular science (SciPop) as proof, then pick up their anti-depressants at a drive thru pharmacy.
