Science Good, Man Bad: Science Should Not Operate in an Agnostic Vacuum
- Science Good, Man Bad -adapted from Animal Farm by George Orwell
Science is good however, ultimately each of us has to decide for ourselves if God is God or science is god.
G.K. Chesterton refers to the intelligent agnostic as the wrecker of secular things when his intention had been all along to wreck Divine things. Another view of this would be to ask what creed is science, which is a Divine Gift, only a tool to be used not worshipped or seen as an end, being conceived and utilized under?
The creeds of the intelligent agnostics that have allowed science to become their god or the ultimate end have left a trail of untold human misery, death, bloodshed and violence. This is witnessed most extravagantly in the agnostic’s quest for man-god made Utopia throughout history.
There are those that attempt to disassociate the Nihilist Philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche from ‘The Final Solution’, Abortion, Eugenics, Population Control or removing those deemed unworthy to live, UN, US, EU sanctioned global initiatives of Bill Gates to eliminate the ‘Carbon Life Forms that are a Pestilence on this planet.
Life-saving surgical procedures are performed every day vs. Josef Mengele and Kermit Barron Gosnell both of whom ignored their solemn vow of the Hippocratic Oath choosing rather to embrace soulless science, along with power and money, to become their gods, the end.

“So what were those rewarding him implying? That his research would be applied to exterminate children in their mother’s womb because they could not be like other children who were “normal” or “productive members of society,” hence “you are not like me, so die!” Such an attitude should be referred to as “chromosomic racism.”
What is this “brave new world” in which in order to live, one will have to obey certain norms, be blond, possess a higher IQ, be more political, and be more this or that – and who will have to experience these norms? But in point of fact, we should remember that such norms have been tried before – and not so long ago.”-Catholic scientist admonishes genetic sorcerers SSPX, District of the US September 10, 2013

“Richard Dawkins is sensitive to shifting mores regarding pedophilia:
Dawkins went on to say that one of his former school masters “pulled me on his knee and put his hand inside my shorts,” and that to condemn this “mild touching up” as sexual abuse today would somehow be unfair.” -Prominent Liberal And Avowed Atheist Richard Dawkins Supports “Mild Pedophilia” Guest post by Melissa Clouthier of MelissaBlogs.com.

Post Update #3:
“Christianity has been around for two thousand years and, for the most part, it has preached a good message by which to live. But unfortunately, as with all organized bodies, many people claiming to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ have shown themselves to behave quite opposite to the message it espouses. This list looks at 10 of the worst.” -10 People Who Give Christianity a Bad Name by JAMIE RATER FEBRUARY 23, 2010

“Atheism has been around for thousands of years, and responsible for many philosophical and scientific developments. Like any movement, it has had its fair share of evil characters. As atheism has no moral precepts, outside of natural morality and ethics, it is hard to say how their atheism influenced their behavior or the particular political and similar movements they chose to follow. It seems that no matter what philosophy or religion people profess, people will always do wrong, whether or not in the name of their faith.” -10 People Who Give Atheism a Bad Name by SALLYH JUNE 5, 2010

“There are plenty of other scientists out there that don’t like the use of the word “believe.” Kevin Padian, of the University of California, Berkeley, wrote an open-access article about science and evolution, entitled “Correcting some common misrepresentations of evolution in textbooks and the media.” He states:
“Saying that scientists ‘believe’ their results suggests, falsely, that their acceptance is not based on evidence, but is based somehow on faith.”
The closeness of belief to faith, belief in something without proof, seems to be a reason a number of scientists disapprove of the word. It does tend to introduce religion, which describes the supernatural, something that science cannot accomplish.” -Why I don’t believe in science…and students shouldn’t either By Adam Blankenbicker Posted: September 2, 2013

“Science is a systematic knowledge of the physical or material universe gained by observable facts. The sacred writings of all world religions basically contain a system of faith. Yet each do make statements within the province of science that provides a uniquely valid test to prove their authenticity. If their scientific observations are in reality superstitions reflective of the culture in which they were written, these so called sacred books are disqualified as the inspired Scripture of God. If, indeed, the scientific observations of any of these purported Holy Scripture agree with the facts of science today, then that Bible is the inspired Word of a true and living God. Why? The Creator and God of the universe is the God of science — the author of the scientific laws that govern His universe. Only the God of science could cause scientific facts to be recorded in a book —the Bible — hundreds or thousands of years before scientists discover them.
Only the Judeo-Christian Bible contains scientific facts that anticipated scientific discovery by hundreds and in some cases several thousand years. The following are examples of remarkable scientific observations found in the Judeo-Christian Bible.” -The God of Science courtesy of Mr. Marty Demichele

“Richard Dawkins, however, remains unmoved. Is there a limit to what science can explain? Very possibly. But in that case, what on earth makes anyone think religion can do any better? “I once reached this point when I asked the then professor of astrophysics at Oxford to explain the origin of the universe to me,” he says. “He did so, and I posed my supplementary: ‘Where did the laws of physics come from in the first place?’ He smiled: ‘Ah, now we move beyond the realm of science. This is where I have to hand over to our good friend the chaplain.’ My immediate thought was, ‘But why the chaplain? Why not the gardener or the chef?’ If science itself cannot say where the laws of physics ultimately come from, there is no reason to expect that religion will do any better and rather good reasons to think it will do worse.” -‘Science cannot provide all the answers’ Why do so many scientists believe in God?

“I think that science exposes the wonder of the world as it is. You don’t need fantasies to build that sense of wonder. Science is true glory, whereas religion is fabricated glory.”
The religious notions of soul and spirit, of life everlasting and the final judgement, are nothing more, he says, than a “fantasy”.
“I’m quite happy for people to take false comfort, but you’ve got to realize it’s false comfort,” he says.” -Does science have all the answers? By Tom Colls BBC Today programme
“Several prominent scholars, often collectively named the “new atheists,” declare, without a firm philosophical foundation, that science is, or soon will be, all-encompassing, and, by implication, religion will soon wither away and disappear. For example, atheist scholar Sam Harris writes in his 2004 book The End of Faith, that “Science will not remain mute on spiritual and ethical questions for long” [Harris2004, pg. 43]. Similarly, the late Christopher Hitchens writes “Thanks to the telescope and the microscope, [religion] no longer offers an explanation of anything important” [Hitchens2007, pg. 282].
Perhaps the strongest expression of this viewpoint is by prominent biologist Richard Dawkins, whom the present author greatly admires for his lucid writings in biology (and quotes him in several occasion in these articles), even though he believes he is mistaken on matters of theology. For example, Dawkins appears to be completely convinced that science is all-encompassing, such as in these excerpts from his recent book The God Delusion [Dawkins2006, pg. 70, 73, 82, 155]” – Excerpt from Introduction of Does science have all the answers?

In society, we love to place labels on others. Society labels people retarded. It is not these individuals devising bigger, better, more efficient methods of killing, weapons of mass destruction or implementing laws, programs, pogroms, engaging in perpetual war, it is the people labeled normal.
I ask you is not the labeling backwards?
