Wikipedia calls Stephen Meyer and Michael Egnor “pseudo-scientists” because they both publicly support the idea of ‘intelligent design’.
‘RationalWiki’ goes further calling Egnor “a promotor of neuro-woo”. [RationalWiki has a “board” of directors who hide behind fake names]
Egnor and Meyer are modern “heretics” who speak out against the dominant establishment scientific doctrine, i.e. ‘materialism’, which asserts that:
Consciousness is an epiphenomenon of electro-chemical activity in the brains of sentient beings. Beyond these neural signals there is no consciousness. Whatsoever.
Thus the most mysterious phenomenon in the universe is reduced to being a by-product of sodium and potassium ions acting across cell membranes and there we have it; it is not consciousness that causes body chemistry, it is body chemistry that causes consciousness.
John Cleese quotes George Orwell regarding this issue when he says here that:
“Only an intellectual is capable of believing such nonsense.”
The question is … why does Wikipedia and every other establishment instrument in the public domain put so much effort into forbidding the idea that there is a ‘God’ that has created the universe?
The answers are fairly obvious but worth stating:
The establishment wants (and needs) us to listen to and obey its authority only.
The world is ruled by Luciferians who want and intend to displace God. They are, essentially, thieves who want to own it all and in order to achieve their goal they must persuade us to silence the voice of God, the Logos, within our very being. Along with everything else they decide what kind of drama we get to watch (e.g. anything on Netflix or, perhaps, predictably PC, arse-aching BBC sh*t like this)
God is love. The love of self and other. The affirmation of all.
Lucifer is love of self and rejection of all that does not serve love of self.
It begins with the illusion that self is source but even the self-love in Lucifer is God’s. Lucifer turns love against its true source. Free beings can do that. We are all capable of buying into the illusion (which is, literally nothing) to the point that we reject and act against the only thing that is real in us.
We, here on earth, need to recognise and know that which is believed by all in heaven.
That we are sources of nothing.
That all the good in us flows in from Heaven, and
All evil in us flows in from hell.
Why would people of faith pray (or agnostics desire the common good) if they did not know this already? The ‘Logos’ (the Divine within) is at work in us whether we are aware of it or not.
In the words of Emanuel Swedenborg, ‘Heaven and Hell’ §302
“I have talked with angels about the conjunction of heaven with the human race, and I said that, while the man of the Church declares that all good is from God, and that angels are with man, yet few believe that angels are conjoined to man, still less that they are in his thought and affection. To this the angels replied that they know that there is such a belief and even such a mode of speaking in the world, and especially, to their surprise, within the Church, where yet there is the Word to teach men about heaven and its conjunction with man.
Nevertheless, there IS such a conjunction that man is unable to think the least thing apart from the spirits adjoined to him, and on this his spiritual life depends. They said that the cause of ignorance of this matter is man’s belief that he lives from himself, without a connection with the Creator of life; and that he does not know that this connection exists by means of the heavens; and yet if that connection were broken man would instantly fall down dead.
If man believed, as is really true, that all good is from the Lord and all evil from hell, he would not make the good in him a matter of merit nor would evil be imputed to him; for he would then look to the Lord in all the good he thinks and does, and all the evil that inflows would be cast down to hell whence it comes. But because man does not believe that there is any influx into him either from heaven or from hell, and so supposes that all the things that he thinks and wills are in himself, and therefore from himself, he appropriates the evil to himself, and the inflowing good he defiles with merit.”
