The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof.
The definition of “sacred” is that which we will not question, even though it cannot be proven. Christians hold sacred the beliefs in the divine inspiration of Scripture and the deity of Christ, even though these cannot be proven. This is the essence of faith – the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). On the other hand, Newtonian physics is not venerated since it has been proven using the scientific method. No faith is required to believe in gravity. However, what happens when a scientific theory is treated as sacred doctrine, even when the empirical evidence is totally contradictory? Enter the chaotic world of CLIMATE CHANGE.
As with any religion, there are two groups of people in the global warming movement (or climate change, or whatever we’re calling it this week): the shepherds and the sheep. The sheep do not have critical thinking skills, lack a proper worldview, and they are looking for meaning in their lives. This a dangerous combination, and it makes them easy prey for the trappings of a false religion – and the shepherds know this all too well. While some of the shepherds may actually believe the hype around climate change, many are knowingly propagating misleading data to manipulate people into a pre-determined agenda. This has been demonstrated by the recent “Climate Gate” scandal.
The problem is that the word “science” is used as a sledgehammer to bludgeon anyone who questions climate change. However, climate change is not based on science. Instead, it is based on scientism – which is accepting a scientific theory as absolute truth in the absence of true scientific evidence. Climate change is a false religion, and it has every mark of such:
Tithes and Offerings
Redemption for Sin
Dire Warnings of Armageddon
And Finally, A Saviour For The Earth.
