This is the sequel to “Why I Became a Militant Non-Believer” on this blog.
Humanity is in a race with itself and we're running out of time. The planet is in dire straights. Nature has given mankind the power of reason, and in return, like Frankenstein’s monster, humans destroy her with the power of science. The waste of billions of years of evolution is unbearable to contemplate.
It’s the arrogance and stupidity that’s so hard to take. Instead of blessing nature with joy and appreciation, humanity abuses her rivers, forests, great oceans; there's even tons of space junk floating over our heads. There’s barely a spot on the planet that humanity hasn’t befouled. It wouldn’t be this way if people realized that we grew out of the planet and we are made of the very stuff of the earth. We even need iron in our blood.
The endmeme is the belief that God is coming to destroy the world because we’re all miserable sinners. Many powerful politicians and world leaders, like Sarah Palin, believe Christ and his hordes of pissed-off angels will come in our lifetime. Christians believe the Four Horsemen will let slip not only the dogs of war, but plague, famine, and death as sidekicks. Those who do not accept the word of God will be in for a hard time, to use a little Brooklynese understatement.
Muslims believe we all face the Day of Judgment and so do Jews. Excluding Buddhists, five billion people out of 6.8 billion carry this ominous, scripture-based belief. This is and always has been unhealthy for mankind. Beliefs are important because they determine behavior: when you believe it’s going to rain, you carry an umbrella.
History is rampant with self-fulfilling prophecies. The Wehrmacht’s marching into Russia during Operation Barbarossa was a fulfillment of a prophecy in Mein Kampf
. Jesus’ riding into Jerusalem on an ass was a fulfillment of a prophecy in Isaiah. The Bible alone contains hundreds of self-fulfilled prophecies (and by writing about it after it happened.) The Bible predicts natural disasters at the end of days, and humans continue widespread deforestation, pollution and reckless spewing of fossil fuel emissions to make it happen. The PBS show "Extreme Ice
" is painful to watch.
Pope Benedict certainly believes in the Book of Revelation
. A co-meme of the endmeme is belief in the Four Horsemen, and famine is one of this ghastly quartet. With this horrible idea firmly embedded in his brain since seminary days, the pope recently went to Africa with the misguided tragic command for his followers not
to use birth control. With 200,000 to 400,000 dying of starvation yearly and wonderful animals like gorillas and rhinos on the brink of extinction due to human aggression into their habitat, the Holy Father ordered Africans to continue adding powder to the population bomb gone berserk. Clearly, the man in under the control of a pernicious and selfish brain virus that manipulates him to predestine hundreds of thousands to ignominious death.
It is disheartening that carriers of the endmeme have the governments of many countries locked in a self-preservating system. In this country a candidate who refuted the Bible and the Book of Revelation wouldn’t have a chance. The endmeme is embedded in the minds of the vast majority of lawmakers. These people have to be deprogrammed soon, or surely the endmeme will lead humanity to a nuclear holocaust.
