"You, your joys and your sorrows, your memories and your ambitions, your sense of personal identity and free will, are in fact no more than the behavior of a vast assembly of nerve cells and their associated molecules. Who you are is nothing but a pack of neurons."
—Francis Crick (biologist, biophysicist, neuroscientist)
The …(ahem)… mindset and pronouncements of some of the most “highly-evolved” among us, is sometimes breathtakingly senseless. The contemporary High Priests of Reductionism, the Wizards of Determinism and the Olde Religion that they’re pushing, that is, paganism, albeit all dressed up in 21st century vestments of white lab coats and sterile, latex gloves, is “progressing” by leaps and bounds.
Lord, have mercy.
“We’re the Muscle-Heads With Clout”
Man, your brain is just a muscle,
Just gray matter made of meat.
You’re an accident of nature.
Pack o’ neurons once in heat.
There’s no Mind behind the matter,
You’d be wise to not forget.…
Like, I said, your brain’s a muscle
That just doesn’t get it yet.
See, we Muscle-Heads have voted,
And decided that we’re right,
All you “others” just accept it,
It’s not something you can fight.
Yes, we Muscle-Heads have noted,
Yep, we’ve got it figured out…
We’re The Cult of Scientism,
We’re the Muscle-Heads with clout.
“Common sense”? …Ha! We don’t think so!
Not in Muscle-Headed-Land!
Common sense has just been busted!
(But you wouldn’t understand.)
Trust us, man…We’ve run the numbers,
Just believe us when we say…
Everything that you believe in,
Is just Stupid-on-Display.
So, wise up, dude…Hey! Get with it!
Join the Muscle-Head Elite!
We know meaning has no Meaning,
And we think that’s really neat!
Lord, have mercy, please upon us!
Has it really come to this?
Pagans used to worship nature,
Now Sheer Nonsense tops the list.
Running blindly from The Maker
We’ve arrived here on the brink,
Rebels running into madness,
Neuron packs that think they think.
Is the darkness just so deep now?
Lord, is mankind so undone?
Please forgive us, Father, help us…
Give us Grace to see the Son.
“Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind…they are senseless…”
—Romans 1: 28…31
“[Today]…that a pre-existing intelligence brought life into existence for a purpose…is ideologically unaccaptable and may not be considered.”
