Hallucinogenic drugs sought provide non-Biblical answers to questions like who we are, why are we here and where are we going. Traditionally, Christianity has provided these answers. Technocrat scientists and physicians want to equip hospice caregivers with both psilocybin and LSD to deliver alternate answers to end-of-life patients.
Pope Francis loves Sustainable Development, the United Nations and supports man-made global warming. He has colored the Catholic church bright green. The Pope’s position is about 3 years old now, and has strengthened thanks to Technocrats around him who continue to deceive him.
Scientism is a religion started in the early 1800’s by French philosopher Henri de Saint-Simon, who called for a priesthood of engineers and scientists to administrate humanity. Both Technocracy and Transhumanism have deep roots in Scientism, so it isn’t surprising to see modern adherents trying to create a godhead out of Artificial Intelligence.
Technocrats view Christianity as ignorant, mythical, superstitious, illogical and even harmful, especially to Technocracy. It is not surprising that in China, Chairman Xi seeks to displace Jesus as the main figure of worship.
Over the millennia, mankind has worshipped the sun, molten and carved idols, other men, animals and rocks; now, AI enters as the latest contender for man’s worshipful attention, and it’s growing in stature.
In the past, men have worshiped rocks, wooden and carved images, the sun, the moon, animals and every conceivable thing, so why not worship an AI bot? Wired Magazine wrote “God is a bot, and Anthony Levandowski is his messenger.” To Christians, this is reminiscent of Revelation 13:15.
Scientism underlies both Technocracy and Transhumanism; the latter is to humanity as the former is to society. Without scientism, neither could be explained or justified. Scientism was first clearly defined by the French philosopher, Henri De Saint-Simon.
Scientism is a religion that is at the base of both Technocracy and Transhumanism. It elevates science and the Scientific Method to a level of godhood where the scientists and engineers are the priesthood.
The United Nations, chief promotor of globalization around the world, has demonstrated a religious flair in recent years, and has been able to co-opt many main-line religions into the “green” camp. However, there are more orthodox Bible scholars who are taking exception to it all.
This article from a prominent Catholic journal makes this provocative statement : “Despite its medieval ideology, IS is a product of western technocracy; it is run by engineers and jurists.”
