The Rapidly Growing Crop Of New Religions.
I had thought that the alleged genocide against the Jews was the most numerically supported and the most aggressively defended of all of the new generation of Religious beliefs. However during the past few days I have been exploring other equally well supported examples, all of which have more or less the same canon of beliefs and a similar level of hatred and venom in their support. It is in fact a modern form of blasphemy to utter one word of criticism against any one of them.
My first encounter was in response to a question of evolution. The question which enticed me into the fray was the suggestion that there was evidence that a religious belief was accompanied by a lower IQ and, the questioner asked, was this stupidity as a result of the religious education or was it genetic?
In all innocence, I asked the question as to whether a belief in the theory of evolution qualified as a religious belief, as a belief in the unprovable, whether it be of a god or a theory was much the same thing was it not?
Well apparently it was not. What’s more I was told so in no uncertain terms, with a response which even censored would be unwise present. In my naivety I was hoping for at least a form of intellectual discussion on such a subject. However during two days I was battered with cries of “for the scientific community a theory is fact.” I will give you just a tiny example of the response.
Obviously, you are not familiar with the theories, as you keep treating the word theory as if it were nothing more than a hypothesis. Fu***ng asswipe piece of shit.
This fellow was soon joined by a friend whom held pretty much the same beliefs. Both insisted on referring to me as a God-fearing idiot who was too stupid to under stand the tenets of evolution.
When I pointed out that their fixation with my alleged religious beliefs was in fact a sign of their own obsession rather than of mine they went ballistic.
At which point I produced a page from Collins Thesaurus which verified quite clearly that a theory was no more than an agreement to accept a possibility. I have since heard nothing more from them.
Hot on the heels of this rubbish came the latest “Epistle” from the IPCC foretelling of Global Warming/Climate Change, which it may be noticed stems from the same roots as does evolution, that is the inbreeding group of rich idiots which included the families of Darwin, Huxley, Wedgwood-Benn and other elitists from which source came the idea of “useless eaters” and the need to cull the population.
To my way of thinking this idea of “man-made climate change” is not simply bad science, it is outright lies. It is no more proven than is evolution. Both are teaching us to accept unverifiable nonsense as fact. The difference being that a belief in evolution or not is neither here nor there, however to be told that the world is warming and that we must reduce our use of coal and petrol etc when in fact all of the available evidence would suggest that we are in for a cold spell is dangerous and could well cost the lives of thousands of people.
Despite the evidence of ice-core, which give a read out of both warmer and colder periods, plus a measure of the CO2 content and evidence that increased CO2 is present after the warmer periods, on top of that to teach chiudren at school that CO2 is a dangerous gas is a scandal.
The IPCC chooses to ignore all of this evidence telling us that 90% of scientists support their claims, when in fact these are the same folk who were caught out fiddling the figures, to give an impression of warming, it would be apparent to anybody, apart from committed disciples, that these men are being paid to say what they are saying, there is no real attempt being made to find the truth. This is surely yet another form of Religious belief. And how can we ever forget:
