Modern “Science” Is often Really Secular Superstition

Christians should never let secular superstition intimidate them in the name of “science.”

The Daily Bell reports on one of the latest Science scandals: “Real Tragedy of ‘Science’: Public Faith Declines as Fakery Grows.”

Science and the ability to generate trustworthy results is a noble effort. But what has happened in the modern day is that science is being elevated to a kind of religion. Slap the label “scientific” on research, no matter how dubious, and you may end up with the benefit of the doubt.

As in so many other ways, you have to follow the money. To question science is to question economics and in particular to question the technocratic efficacy of central banking. Sadly, science has been aggrandized to serve the meme of monopoly money printing.

As a result, science and scientists occupy rarified air, indeed – and because the stakes are so high, the temptation to cheat is increasingly significant as well.

Scientific theories are ever more impervious to change. Change, after all, suggests a cognitive evolution and one doesn’t easily adjust what is basically by now a religious doctrine for fear of bringing certain elements into doubt.

There was a time when theology ruled the world, and the pronouncements of popes and priests exerted powerful control over economics, politics, and everything else. Charlatans came to recognize that delegated authority, assumed the mantle of the clergy, and perverted religion to their own diabolical ends.

Today, the priesthood of the western world is science. Science, in its place, is an inestimable blessing to mankind. But just as fakers formerly took up the robes of religion to seek their own nefarious ends, today there are many (like Al Gore and various denizens of the United Nations) who have falsely donned the lab coats of “science” to seek economic and political control over men.

The problem is not truth itself—we should all pursue truth. The problem is those with no concern for truth, but only for their own evil ends and designs.
