Are we in love with how smart we are? In America today, there are technology companies that have a much larger “cult following” than any religious organization.And there are millions upon millions of Americans that freely confess that they “believe in science”. So what does this say about us? Does it say that we have discarded ancient “superstitions” and instead have embraced logic and reason?
Sadly, in most cases the truth is that we have simply traded one form of religion for another. Scientists and technology gurus have become our new high priests, and most of us blindly follow whatever they tell us.
At any point in history, has “science” ever had all the answers?
Of course not.
And without a doubt, someday people will look back and mock all of us for how stupid we were.
But we never stop to consider that. Instead, we are all just so proud of ourselves and our accomplishments.
In fact, as I mentioned above, there are a lot of people out there that virtually worship technology these days. Just consider the following excerpt from a Los Angeles Times article entitled “How Steve Jobs and Apple turned technology into a religion“…
Decades after Apple’s founding, we’ve grown used to referring to lovers of the company’s products as a “cult.” The devotion of customers to Apple products has long been the envy of competitors for its fanatical fervor.
It turns out that the religious intensity with which people follow the company is not entirely by accident. In a new book, “Appletopia,” author Brett Robinson examines the way that Steve Jobs drew on religious metaphors and iconography to elevate his products specifically, and technology more generally, into a kind of religion.
“The creative rhetoric around Apple’s technology has favored religious metaphors,” Robinson said in an interview. “Some of it is conscious on Apple’s part. Some of it is unconscious.”
Many would say that our worship of science and technology is evidence that we have evolved beyond our ancestors. In fact, there are some “scientific minds” that are now proclaiming that science will one day eliminate belief in God altogether. For example, the following comes from an article entitled “Will Science Someday Rule Out the Possibility of God?“…
Over the past few centuries, science can be said to have gradually chipped away at the traditional grounds for believing in God. Much of what once seemed mysterious — the existence of humanity, the life-bearing perfection of Earth, the workings of the universe — can now be explained by biology, astronomy, physics and other domains of science.
Although cosmic mysteries remain, Sean Carroll, a theoretical cosmologist at the California Institute of Technology, says there’s good reason to think science will ultimately arrive at a complete understanding of the universe that leaves no grounds for God whatsoever.
Carroll argues that God’s sphere of influence has shrunk drastically in modern times, as physics and cosmology have expanded in their ability to explain the origin and evolution of the universe. “As we learn more about the universe, there’s less and less need to look outside it for help,” he told Life’s Little Mysteries.
I shall prove to MY Children once again, if you listen to MY voice and walk in MY footsteps, you will outwit the enemies that seek to destroy you and all MY Children that are seeking to hear MY every word and who obey ME, or at least strive too and knowing that when they do sin they have YAHUSHUA’s Blood for the remission of sins. I your Father, YAHUVEH, shall confound them with the evil ones’ own technology. I will confound them with their own inventions. For no earthly or scientific reason the traps set for MY children will instead only entrap and boomerang back upon the evil ones that seek the followers of YAHUSHUA’s destruction. What I did once before with the evil pharaoh I will do again. By YAHUVEH’s hand alone the Goliaths of this world shall forever fall.
The ones I call evil secret keepers, who seek to use the secrets of the occult, demonism, scientific, political knowledge, and manmade laws to destroy MY Children, and take the freedoms I have given to MY Children away. I, YAHUVEH, will have a surprise in store for them; it will confound these evil ones that think themselves wise. They seek to harm MY Children. I, YAHUVEH, and MY Son YAHUSHUA, vow to protect those that are called forth, and anointed for this hour.
It is I, YAHUVEH, I will have the last laugh. You have aroused MY ire, you have aroused MY wrath. You say I will play God with the knowledge I have given you. You create man in man’s own image, when MY Word says you were created in MY image. You play your games with the weather. Now I shall show you the creator of that weather. Your own clones shall turn against you. Your own inventions shall turn against you. Any weapon that you try and use against MY Children shall boomerang back upon you. For I am judging Sodom and Gomorrah again, I am looking over the face of this world. I know which ones MY angels have sealed and these things shall not befall them.
You turn to science for your god? You turn to politics to provide your needs? Foolish, Foolish, Foolish generation! You turn to the knowledge of this world and you dismiss MY Book as old, the book that is filled with all truth and knowledge, the Book that the Prophets foretold. Away, Away, Away from ME, away from ME with your blasphemous worship as you fill these pews on Sunday and you chase the true Shabbat worshippers away. I will once again show you, judgment truly starts at the house of YAHUVEH. As once again YAHUSHUA will flog the money changers and chase them right out of the door.
