Apparently, due to Dan Brown’s book “Angels and Demons” and the corresponding movie there is occurring a feverish internet search for information about the Illuminati. Some popular searches for the Illuminati are interesting and some amusing. Some examples are:
Illuminati symbols (not an Atheist Symbols, right?)
History Illuminati (as opposed to the history of atheism)
US currency Illuminati symbol
Illuminati news (can you imagine? Get yer Illuminati news ove'hea!)
How do I join the Illuminati (what, they don’t advertize?!?!)
Illuminati diamond (surely, it would make quite the engagement ring)
Illuminati and Obama or Obama Illuminati (let the conspiracy theorizing begin, or continue) and do not forget George Bush, the Illuminati
25 goals of Illuminati (what about the New Ten Commandments?—of which there are fifteen)
Origination of Illuminati (where is that chart?)
Pyramids of the Illuminati review
Illuminati and librarians (I could see when they charged five cents for late books but now?)
Illuminati card game (probably makes of more exiting viewing than pro poker)
What is the Illuminati
Beware and be aware my friends, for while the Illuminati are lurking in the shadows attempting to establish their new world order another group, a menace of massive proportions, is acting in the wide open: they are—the Alluminati who are attempting to establish an atheist new world order (FYI: I used to play bass in a band called New World Chaos).
There seems to be a common misconception of atheism being anti-religion yet, it is not—it is very, very pro-religion. They are anti-theistic-religion but very much so pro atheistic-religion. This is not only due to militant activist atheist such as Michael Newdow who has long argued that atheism is a religion or the fact that, as noted in Nietzsche Nails Atheism, Again, atheism (under whatever label) has long held religious services (aspects of Unitarian Universalism are an example of this; see here, here and here).
It is, quite rightly, said that the best place to hide something is in plain sight. True indeed, as I recall that perhaps the first time that I posted on atheists attempting to establish an atheist new world order in the form of an atheist one world religion someone commented thusly, “‘Atheist religion’???? Dears, you really are a 3rd class blog.”
Atheists have been promulgating their wished to establish an atheist one world religion for, at the very least, three centuries. In seek to establish the atheist new world order the Alluminati complain that theistic religions are manmade and make assertions about supernatural transcendence which can only be known through personal subjective experience. In its place the Alluminati new world order seeks establish a manmade religion that makes assertions about materialistic transcendence which can only be known through personal subjective experience.
Many people ask “Is atheism a religion” and there are some reasons for answering in the affirmative yet, the simple answer is, “Whether it is one now or not one thing is for certain; many influential atheists want to establish it as a religion.”
Atheism is Dead has previously chronicled Atheism Spirituality evidencing their attempts to co-opt science in order to replace awe in God with awe in cosmic accidents, including the accident of the cosmos itself: they primed the pump for the Alluminati new world order by preaching the pseudo-gospel of neo-Pagan atheism: awe in nature or nature worship. Now Atheism is Dead will chronicle atheism quotes that are more specific to the establishing of a one world atheist religion.
Let us begin with Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) who conceptualized of a civil religion one of the commandments of which was,
If anyone, after publicly recognizing these dogmas, behaves as if he does not believe them, let him be punished by death: He has committed the worst of all crimes, that of lying before the law.
Claude Henri de Rouvroy - Comte de Saint-Simon (1760-1825) envisaged a new Christianity premised on Humanism and scientific socialism. The secular priesthood would be composed of scientists, philosophers and engineers.
Auguste Comte (1798-1857) envisioned of a religion of humanity.
Dan Barker, of the Freedom From Religion Foundation (established in a country premised on the freedom of religious expression), stated the following:
Atheism and Freethought and true humanistic morality are, are so much more clear, so much more useful, so much more reasonable so, you know, without all the negative baggage of theology and judgment and hell and, and you know, and the supernatural….I don’t have to try to prop up this phony supernatural system…atheists and agnostics are more accountable they are more moral they, they have more responsibility in their lives because they realize that it, it’s a what matters is this world not an imaginary supernatural world.
This is one of the Alluminati new world order’s consoling delusions: the delusion of lack of ultimate accountability and the delusion of absolute autonomy.
Michael Shermer, editor of Skeptic magazine (who was outed as a pseudo-skeptic by Ben Stein), stated that his study of evolution was,
…far more enlightening and transcendent, spiritual, than anything I had experienced in seven years of being a born again Christian.
If religion and spirituality are supposed to generate awe and humility in the fact of the creator, what could be more awesome and humbling than the deep space discovered by Hubble and the cosmologists and the deep time discovered by Darwin and the evolutionists?
Science matters because it is the preeminent story of our age, an epic saga about who we are, where we came from, and where we are going.
This represents the Alluminati new world order as neo-pseudo-Genesis.
Michael Ruse (philosophy professor, University of Guelph) wrote:
Evolution is promoted by its practitioners as more than mere science. Evolution is promulgated as an ideology, a secular religion — a full-fledged alternative to Christianity…Huxley, known in the papers as “Pope Huxley”, was determined to find a substitute for Christianity…Herbert Spencer…shared Huxley’s vision of evolution as a kind of metaphysics rather than a straight science…Evolution now has its mystical visionary, its Saint John of the Cross. Harvard entomologist and sociobiologist Edward O. Wilson tells us that we now have an “alternative mythology” to defeat traditional religion.
Such sentiments represent the Alluminati new world order as replacement theology: replacing Christianity and replacing theist religion with atheistic religion.
In this regard Richard Bozarth has noted that “Atheism will be ready to fill the void of Christianity’s demise when science and evolution triumph…Christianity is nothing!” Also, note that a very influential person state, “When understanding of the universe has become widespread…Christian doctrine will be convicted of absurdity.” The influential person was Adolf Hitler (see here, here and here).
In his article Is Science a Religion? Richard Dawkins wrote:
“science does have some of religion’s virtues…All the great religions have a place for awe, for ecstatic transport at the wonder and beauty of creation. And it’s exactly this feeling of spine-shivering, breath-catching awe — almost worship — this flooding of the chest with ecstatic wonder, that modern science can provide. And it does so beyond the wildest dreams of saints and mystics…
Science can offer a vision of life and the universe which, as I’ve already remarked, for humbling poetic inspiration far outclasses any of the mutually contradictory faiths and disappointingly recent traditions of the world’s religions.
Thus far, we are getting a taste of the Alluminati new world order as premising its atheist one world religion on science, evolution, goosebumps and anti-Christian prejudice.
Stephen S. Hall wrote the following in Darwin’s Rottweiler - Sir Richard Dawkins: Evolution’s Fiercest Champion, Far Too Fierce:
Einsteinian religion is a kind of spirituality which is nonsupernatural…It is something bigger, something grander, something that I believe any scientist can subscribe to, including those scientists whom I would call atheists. Einstein, in my terms, was an atheist…
I suppose my hope would be that science—the best kind of science, the sort of science which approaches the best sort of religion, the Einsteinian spirituality that I was talking about—is so inspiring, so exciting that it should be sellable to everybody…We have something far better to offer…Why are we freethinking secular scientists not getting into that same marketplace…and selling what we’ve got to sell? Because it’s a far better product, and all we’ve got to do is hone our salesmanship to the level that they are already doing it.
The statement, “Einstein, in my terms, was an atheist” and Richard Dawkins’ reference to Einstein as an “atheistic scientist” are examples of the Alluminati new world order’s attempts to rewrite history. Albert Einstein stated, “I'm not an atheist.” Thus, the Alluminati’s minions will argue that Stephen S. Hall qualified his statement with “in my terms” and Richard Dawkins by referencing Albert Einstein as scientist. Behold the Alluminati new world order’s misleading statements: truth mixed with falsehood—classic misinformation.
From Gary Wolf’s interview with Daniel Dennett:
No rational creature, he says, would be able to do without unexamined, sacred things…This sounds to me a little like the religion of reason that Harris foresees. “Yes, there could be a rational religion,” Dennett says. “We could have a rational policy not even to think about certain things”…
I ask Dennett if there might not be a contradiction in his scheme. On the one hand, he aggressively confronts the faithful, attacking their sacred beliefs. On the other hand, he proposes that our inherited defaults be put outside the limits of dispute. But this would make our defaults into a religion, unimpeachable and implacable gods. And besides, are we not atheists? Sacred prohibitions are anathema to us.
Dennett replies that exceptions can be made. “Philosophers are the ones who refuse to accept the sacred values,” he says. For instance, Socrates. I find this answer supremely odd. The image of an atheist religion whose sacred objects, called defaults, are taboo for all except philosophers – this is the material of the cruelest parody.
This represents the Alluminati new world order as establishing atheist one world rational religion as refereed by, as coincidentally stated by the philosopher Daniel Dennett, philosophers.
From Gary Wolf’s interview with Sam Harris:
We discuss what it might look like, this world without God. “There would be a religion of reason,” Harris says…“We would be able to invoke the power of poetry and ritual and silent contemplation and all the variables of happiness so that we could exploit them. Call it prayer, but we would have prayer without bull****…At some point, there is going to be enough pressure that it is just going to be too embarrassing to believe in God.” [italics in original]
This is the Alluminati new world order as establishing atheist one world religion of reason that will simply embarrass theistic religions into non-existence.
Sam Harris elucidates in this article, Selfless Consciousness Without Faith:
As a critic of religious faith, I am often asked what will replace organized religion. The answer is: many things and nothing…we need a way of talking about human well-being that is as unconstrained by religious dogma as science is.
Sam Harris notes, in his A Contemplative Science, that,
I recently spent a week with one hundred fellow scientists at a retreat center in rural Massachusetts. The meeting attracted a diverse group: physicists, neuroscientists, psychologists, clinicians, and a philosopher or two…We were on a silent meditation retreat at the Insight Meditation Society, engaged in a Buddhist practice known as vipassana (the Pali word for “seeing clearly”)…Of critical importance for the purposes of science: there are no unjustified beliefs or metaphysics that need be adopted at all…
This denotes the atheist one world religion’s Atheism Spirituality: all of the goosebumpy feelings with none of that bothersome accountability.
Sam Harris further notes that “we can promulgate that knowledge and pursue those experiences very much in a spirit of science, without presupposing anything on insufficient evidence.” Also, “We must learn to invoke the power of ritual and to mark those transitions in every human life that demand profundity — birth, marriage, death, etc. — without lying to ourselves about the nature of reality…we will have no need for divisive religious myths.”
Moreover, there are countless lower level Alluminati all over the internet composing doxologies to the atheist one world religion in the form of atheism spirituality, delineating atheist beliefs, seeking to establish an atheist symbol, composing atheist prayers, etc. Indeed, the Alluminati are hard a work, right out in the open, seeking to establish their new world order atheist one world religion. They also seek to rewrite history as the triumph of “reason” over “faith” (or seeking to deny that Communism was premised upon atheism). They seek to dictate child rearing. They seek to co-opt science as somehow implying, if not proving, atheism. They seek to paint atheism as holier and more moral than Christianity. And much, much more.
Meanwhile, the more that the Alluminati seek to establish their new world order the more I am reminded of Romans 1:18-28 which refers to:
…men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them.
For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man…
Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity…because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind…
Premised upon denying God, the atheist one world religion seeks to encourage nature worship—atheist-neo-Paganism.
Lastly, note that ex-atheist, the late C. S. Lewis, noted the following of a form of atheism spirituality which he referred to in terms of Life-Force philosophy, or Creative Evolution, or Emergent Evolution:
One reason why many people find Creative Evolution so attractive is that it gives one much of the emotional comfort of believing in God and none of the less pleasant consequences.
When you are feeling fit and the sun is shining and you do not want to believe that the whole universe is a mere mechanical dance of atoms, it is nice to be able to think of this great mysterious Force rolling on through the centuries and carrying you on its crest.
If, on the other hand, you want to do something rather shabby, the Life-Force, being only a blind force, with no morals and no mind, will never interfere with you like that troublesome God we learned about when we were children.
The Life-Force is a sort of tame God. You can switch it on when you want, but it will not bother you.
All the thrills of religion and none of the cost.
Is the Life-Force the greatest achievement of wishful thinking the world has yet seen?
