What a laugh – after trying to disprove God for decades, scientists now “disprove” atheists July 9, 2014

Even though an engineer, my skepticism towards the claims of many publicity-seeking scientists – if indeed they are -grows greater every day.

Bear with me, this takes just a bit of explanation.  Some scientists studying sociological research, elements of the brain, and all the things that go into human behavior, claim to have found that humanity is hard-wired for belief in the metaphysical or supernatural.  Catholics understand this intuitively – we are hard-wired by God to know, love, and serve Him.  A loving God would of course inculcate in His creation the ability to do what He demands of them!  But the scientists go a bit further, they claim that since we seem to be hardwired for supernatural belief, that means, in a sense, God does not create atheists, and true atheists don’t exist.  I think Catholics also know this – atheists are simply people who have, by and large, replaced love for God with hatred for God as the basis of their false, harmful religion.  And leftism in general, far from being the enlightened adherents of strictly rational thinking, are some of the most superstitious, magical-thinking people around.  That is why silliness like belief in astrology, new age, false eastern religions, UFOs, conspiracy theories of all stripes, etc., are rampant on the left.

Anyway, the report, filled with progressive errors and general falsity as it is, below. I have some fun fisking it:

While militant atheists like Richard Dawkins may be convinced that they hate God with a white hot passion God doesn’t exist, God, if He is around, may be amused to find that atheists might not exist.  [There is so much wrong in this sentence it could take me pages to unpack it all.  Just a few: God is omnipotent and omniscient, He knows the most infinitesimal details of each and every soul that has ever been born.  He knows very well why atheism develops in a soul, and it saddens and offends the Lord to no end.  God doesn’t need us puny humans to confirm His existence, He IS existence.  There is no frame of reference we humans can use to fully comprehend what it is to be God.]

Cognitive scientists are becoming increasingly aware that a metaphysical outlook may be so deeply ingrained in human thought processes that it cannot be expunged. [Wow, to a person who wasn’t a confirmed member of the sexular pagan cult, that would sound like incredibly convincing evidence that God does indeed exist, and created very powerful aspects of the human psyche to both recognize His reality and conform to His Law as He has revealed to us, over millenia, both in the flesh and through other means]

While this idea might seem outlandish – after all, it seems easy to decide not to believe in God [Which ease is attributable to our fallen natures and propensity to sin, absent Grace.  There is no limit to the evil to which man can sink absent faith in God and His Church] – evidence from several disciplines indicates that what you actually believe is not a decision you make for yourself. Your fundamental beliefs are decided by much deeper levels of consciousness, and may well be more or less set in stone.  [No, they are not set in stone.  That is ludicrous.  This completely denies free will. My goodness, a Thomist could have an absolute field day with all this.  There are literally so many diabolically wrong and bad assumptions throughout this piece that it boggles the mind. This is how utterly cut off from God, the moral law, and true rational thinking people have become, in their quest to prove to themselves that God doesn’t exist so they can go on sinning.]

This shouldn’t come as a surprise, since we are born believers, not atheists, scientists say. [Well duh]  Humans are pattern-seekers from birth, with a belief in karma,  or cosmic justice,  as our default setting. [No, the natural law is intuitive to all and the Law of God is written on all our hearts, even those atheists and sexular pagans who do all in their might to overwrite and expunge that Law] “A slew of cognitive traits predisposes us to faith,” writes Pascal Boyer in Nature, the science journal, adding that people “are only aware of some of their religious ideas.” [Once again, this makes eminent sense, that a loving God would instill in His creation a very strong to be predisposed to love Him and to have faith.  In fact, much of science knew this before the evil of Darwinism and the modern progressive cult became the dominant new religion of “science.”  People believe so many things that aren’t so, and are invincibly convinced of them, even when, in the case of the theory of evolution, there is absolutely no concrete evidence that can be pointed at to prove the theory!  People take so much of what they “know” simply as a matter of faith, on the authority of those they have been very carefully taught to obey unquestioningly.  And that is how the Faith has been driven from the hearts of millions.  Satan is the ultimate author of the modernist progressive sexular pagan cult. ]

……..There is also the notion that the presence of an invisible moralistic presence makes misdemeanors harder to commit. [No, the Law of God is written on our hearts] “People who think they are being watched tend to behave themselves and cooperate more,” says the New Scientist’s Lawton. [But that only keeps them from breaking the law.  There is much immorality that can still occur when bare adherence to the law is the standard.That is why Faith in Jesus Christ and His Church is the absolute necessity for any moral, rightly ordered civil society.  That is why culture and morality flourished under Chirstendom, but is rapidly approaching the nadir of human existence today.]  “Societies that chanced on the idea of supernatural surveillance were likely to have been more successful than those that didn’t, further spreading religious ideas.”   [That is an evolutionist speaking, trying to explain why religious belief would be a successful evolutionary trait.  Please!  So much error…….]

And the original article was very long!  If I fisked the whole thing, it would take days!

Wow are we in trouble.  It’s almost hard to know where to start with such incredible ignorance.  That cultural knowledge of Christendom that sort of continued on for decades after formal Christendom disappeared, appears to fast be expiring, as well.  That will lead to nuovo-barbarism, we can be assured of it.
