Dumb scientists "professing to be wise" exposed
April 18, 2016
Many people today believe that the Bible is not compatible with science, but that is only because so much of what we call science today is what the Bible falsely calls science. Theoretical physicists like Lawrence Krauss, Michio Kaku, Stephen Hawking and others produce bizarre fictional theories about the origin and nature of our universe that have no basis in observable reality. If people really knew what these so-called scientists believe, they would understand the truth of what the Bible says in Romans 1:22. "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools."
Michio Kaku: It doesn't take energy to create a universe. Universes are free. A universe is a free lunch. Then you might say to yourself, "Well, that can't be right."
Lawrence Krauss: Essentially, you can get a universe out of nothing without supernatural shenanigans which basically by quantum mechanics and the laws of psychic we understand in principle, a complete universe with 100 billion galaxies, each with 100 billion stars, can come out of nothing because their total energy can be zero, and therefore literally no laws of physics need be violated to create a universe. Now, we don't know for sure.
Michio Kaku: In other words, the universe is free.
Stephen Hawking: Because there are laws like gravity, the universe can and will create itself out of nothing.
Lawrence Krauss: In fact, if you ask what would be the characteristics of a universe that was created out of nothing just by the normal laws of physics, they would be precisely the characteristics of the universe we live in. Again, that doesn't prove it. , but it makes it quite plausible.
Stephen Hawking: Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing. This is why the universe exists, why we exist.
RT Anchor: So how do we go from nothing to something?
Lawrence Krauss: Because actually, if you add up all the energy in the universe, it looks like zero. Everything we see was once contained within a region smaller than the size of an atom. It's hard to imagine, but it's true. In fact, I wrote an entire book about it.
Host: And we've talked about that on this show, I think.
John Green: In the smallest fraction of the first second, the universe grew from something many, many, many times smaller than an atom to the size of a grapefruit. Think of it this way, in much less than the blink of an eye, if it was originally the size of a tennis ball, it would have ballooned to over 90 billion light years across.
Michio Kaku: We believe, although we cannot yet prove it, that our multiverse of universes is 11-dimensional. Think of this 11-dimensional arena and in this arena there are bubbles, bubbles that float and the skin of the bubble represents a whole universe. We are like flies trapped in flypaper. We are in the skin of a bubble, it is a three-dimensional bubble. The three-dimensional bubble is expanding and this is called the Big Bang theory.
Lawrence Krauss: Our universe is just a small random accident in a vast multiverse, and it's fascinating because it means that as each universe emerges or collapses, it can fall apart in a different way. It's like falling off a mountain. You can fall in many different directions and each different direction that you let the inflation in some way can give different laws of physics in that region of space or at least certain different laws of physics. If that's the case, it may be that many of the fundamental laws that we see and think are truly fundamental are just accidents of our experience. It could be that in each universe there are different laws of physics and this could help explain other paradoxes about the universe we see.
Michio Kaku: We're nothing more than a soap bubble floating in a bubble bath. In some ways, the multiverse can feel like a bubble bath. Our universe is just a bubble, but there are other bubbles. When two bubbles collide, they can merge into a bigger bubble, which can be the Big Bang. Also, besides our own universe, there could be an infinite number of other universes bubbling up in frothy eternity like a bunch of noodles, boiling water. In fact, this is what the Big Bang probably looks like, or perhaps a bubble seen in half and split into two bubbles. This could be the Big Bang.
Lawrence Krauss: Some people get upset because we don't change the meaning of anything.
Michio Kaku: Or maybe the universe came out of nowhere. This is also a possibility.
Lawrence Krauss: Most religious people object to my definition of nothing, they have never defined it themselves. This is your definition of nothing. Nothing is that out of which only God can create something. Let's go. They create this useless definition.
Michio Kaku: The universe could be essentially nothing, which was unstable and created a soap bubble. Now you might say to yourself, "That can't be right because it violates the conservation of matter and energy. How can you create a universe out of nothing?"
Youtuber: Spacetime was created by the Big Bang. Therefore, time did not exist before the Big Bang, so there is little point in asking what happened before. There was no 'then' then. Of course, this, like many ideas in cosmology, doesn't really make sense to our puny human brains. It is far beyond our comprehension.
Lawrence Krauss: Otherwise, very speculative ideas because inflation, while it was a good motivation, is based on physics that we've never measured, physics that we call the unified large scale, and without empirical driving, it's all talk.
Michio Kaku: The highest dimension is 11. You can't go beyond 11 because universes become unstable beyond 11.
Lawrence Krauss: Now, in a sense, we come to the Holy Grail. Just a few months ago, the announcement was made of observations that really turned metaphysics into physics, taking us literally back to a millionth of a billionth of a billionth of a billionth of a second after the Big Bang, which is a period of time I never found. that we could observe directly. If they hold up I have to say it's just an observation at this point and in science we have to be pretty skeptical, and this needs to be confirmed before we can really trust it, but it will allow us to test theories about the beginning of our universe and potentially the existence of other universes.
Physicist Woman: For every physicist out there, this is kind of the holy grail.
TV Presenter: These waves interact so weakly that they've actually been propagating towards us since a millionth of a billionth of a billionth of a second after the Big Bang and that means we've changed everything.
TV presenter: 13 billion years later, we have a way to see this cosmic glow with the naked eye.
doctor David Spergel: You pick up your television and change the channel. Two percent of the static you see on your TV screen is radiation from the Big Bang.
TV presenter: This cosmic radiation is a direct connection to the Big Bang. It also reveals that the universe entered a new phase less than a trillionth of a second after its creation.
Physicist Woman: If you could go back to the early universe just after the Big Bang, you would find yourself in this seething massive matter and antimatter annihilating each other. You would find yourself in the middle of this cosmic battle between the two sides, caught in the crossfire if you like.
Lawrence Krauss: In a way, it explains why we're here, why it happens, and it's an incredible accident, and these were ideas that were known about 40 years ago and we still hadn't been able to prove them, that the only reason by which the particles in our body have mass that can form together to form us and everything we see on Earth is an accident.
John Green: Because it turns out that if you take a bunch of hydrogen and wait several billion years, you can create some humans.
Ben Stein: Well then how was it created?
Richard Dawkins: Well, by a very slow process.
Ben Stein: How did it start?
Richard Dawkins: Nobody knows how it started. We know the kind of event that must have been. We know the type of event that must have occurred for life to originate.
Ben Stein: What was that?
Richard Dawkins: It was the origin of the first self-replicating molecule.
Ben Stein: Right, and how did that happen?
Richard Dawkins: I told you we don't know.
Ben Stein: You have no idea how it all started?
Richard Dawkins: No, no. Neither does anyone else.
Ben Stein: Neither does anyone else.
Pastor Anderson: This belief system that is now known as science, the false so-called science that God predicted would happen, this false so-called science is not based on facts, it is not based on knowledge. It is actually a belief system. It's more like a religion. That is why many people today will ask the following question: "Well, do you believe in science?" You see, if it was just fact, if it was just knowledge, if it was something that could actually be proven through observation, through experimentation, then you wouldn't have to believe it. The reason you have to believe it is because it's a religion, because it's not science. It's a belief system, and that belief system is based on two things that I'm going to demonstrate this morning.
Number one, this belief system is based on hatred of God, and by that I mean the God of the Bible, and number two, it's based on science fiction, and this morning I mean Buck Rogers. I'm talking about Star Trek. I'm talking about Star Wars. I'm talking about all the science fiction that Hollywood movies and TV shows have popularized. That's really the basis of this belief system, and they say, "Oh, we're so rational. We're so logical." No, you are not. "Oh, it's all based on facts. It's all based on experiments." No, it's not. It is based on two things. Number one, a deep-seated hatred for the God of the Bible and number two, is based on watching too many science fiction movies and TV shows. These are the foundation and I'll show you. Now, Romans the 1st chapter, the 19th verse, the Bible said, "For what is known of God is plain to them, because God has made it known to them."
Now, manifest means that it can be seen. It's out there. "For the invisible things of his, from the creation of the world, are clearly manifested, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godship, so that they are inexcusable." You see, if they actually conducted observations and experiments in the natural world we live in, they would simply proclaim the glory of the creator who made it all. That's the logical conclusion, but it says in verse 21, "For, knowing God, they glorified him not as God, nor gave thanks to him, but were puffed up in their imaginations, and their foolish hearts were darkened." ." Go to verse 28. "And because they did not care to have a knowledge of God, God gave them over to an evil mind, to do things that are not convenient."
Now, what I want to point out here is that these people who deny the God of the Bible, these people, the Bible says they don't want to keep God in their knowledge, why don't they want to keep God in their knowledge? ? Well, this is explained from verse 29 onwards. "Being filled with all unrighteousness." However, you don't want to keep God in your knowledge when you are full of all unrighteousness, because God is so holy that He is a constant reminder of your own unrighteousness. Not only that, it says in verse 30 about these same people, "biters, enemies of God". That's what I'm saying about this belief system. These people hate God. They didn't want to withhold the knowledge of God, so they began to teach and preach the gospel of atheism.
They go out to evangelize people that there is no God and they do it in the name of science but it is falsely called science. It's not real science. It's your belief. It's your faith. It's your system or ideology. Here are some of the renowned preachers of this science of religion. Richard Dawkins, Stephen Hawking, Michio Kaku, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Christopher Hitchens, Bill Nye, the scientist. These are the apostles of this false religion. These are false teachers and false prophets. The first preacher of this science fiction religion I would like to address is Richard Dawkins. This man is an evolutionary biologist and author of a book called The God Delusion. He's probably the most famous atheist, at least from what I've heard. Seems like I've heard of him more than anyone else as the big, what I call an evangelical atheist, okay?
Someone who just isn't an atheist but just wants to preach the gospel of atheism to the entire world. The funny thing is if I only had one life to live and I was an atheist and thought I was going to die and turn to dust, I wouldn't spend my life trying to fight an imaginary being called God who supposedly doesn't exist. We have Don Quixote, Richard Dawkins here, fighting windmills and boxing against someone who doesn't even believe he exists. Where do you want to go? Why don't you eat, drink and be happy because tomorrow you die? What's the point, Richard Dawkins? He is a zealous evangelical atheist. Now let's see if his beliefs come from the science of observation and experimentation or if they come from where I said they come from, a deep hatred of God. This is what Richard Dawkins says about God in his book.
Richard Dawkins: “The God of the Old Testament is possibly the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of him; a petty, unfair, and ruthless control freak; a vengeful, bloodthirsty ethnic scavenger; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniac, sadomasochistic, and whimsically malevolent bully”.
Ben Stein: Is that what you think of God?
Richard Dawkins: Sim.
Pastor Anderson: Tell us how you really feel, Richard Dawkins. You might say here that he hates God.
Pastor Anderson: He hates God. Into all fiction and read a lot of fiction. I mean, the God of the Bible is worse than Darth Vader. The God of the Bible is worse than the emperor. The God of the Bible is worse than all science fiction villains. He's a bully. The funny thing is, there was a debate between him and another boy and the boy asked him, "How do you know the God of the Bible isn't real?" He said, "Well, the reason is because the God of the Bible is so misogynistic, homophobic" yada yada yada. Makes logical sense...
Pastor Anderson: ...to say something doesn't exist because it's ugly? "Well, because God is the worst villain there is, that means he doesn't exist." Let me ask you something, Richard Dawkins. Do you think I'm cool? Because I exist and I discovered that I am homophobic. I am constantly labeled as a misogynist. The world constantly labels me as a horrible person, but you know what? I exist. I am here. As Jesus said, "Touch me and see that I am made of flesh and blood, and a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have." What kind of science is this, saying, "He doesn't exist because I don't like his personality." This is very logical. That makes a lot of sense, friend. "That's how we know." He is then asked, "Is it possible that there is an intelligent design of some other being?" He said: "Aliens may have created us."
Richard Dawkins: It can be treated as follows. It could be that at some point in the past, somewhere in the universe, a civilization probably evolved by some sort of Darwinian means to a very, very high level of technology and engineered a form of life that seeded perhaps this planet. That's an intriguing possibility, and I suppose you can find evidence that if you look at the details of our chemistry, molecular biology, you can find the signature of some kind of designer.
Pastor Anderson: It's possible that "a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away" someone planted life on earth and put life here, but not the God of the Bible. Does that sound scientific or rather biased based on your deep hatred of God?
Pastor Anderson: There's another reason why these guys make up these things that are not based on evidence, that are not based on experimentation, but just based on their belief system. Go to 2 Peter, chapter number 3. "Understanding this first, that in the last days there shall come scoffers, walking after their own lusts." That's where it all comes from, "walking after your own lusts." That's where it all starts. He says: “Knowing this first, that scoffers shall come in the last days, walking after their own lusts, and saying, 'Where is the promise of his coming?' for since the fathers fell asleep, all things remain as they were from the beginning of creation.” Look, when it says creation there, I heard someone say, "These are Christians because they believe in creation." Do not.
Christians are not the only ones who believe in creation. Atheists believe in creation. It's just a different creation. Its creation story is the Big Bang. We'll get to that a little later. It says here: "All things remain as they were from the beginning of creation. Therefore, they willfully ignore it." It's not like they go to the lab and do some experiments and say, "You know, the conclusion I came to is that God doesn't exist." No no no. They are deliberately ignorant. What makes you want to ignore creation? They are willing to ignore the flood. He says they are: "They willfully ignore that by the word of God the heavens were made from the beginning."
That God spoke the world into existence, that God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. That in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. He says: "And the earth coming out of the water and into the water." The two things that are ignored there are the creation and the flood, which represent the physical phenomenon that we see in this world, the creation and the flood. They are ignorant of these things. They make up their own version, but why are they willfully ignorant? The Bible says it's because they walk after their own lusts. Now, more evidence of this is found in Psalm 14. You don't have to go there. In Psalm 14:1, the Bible says, "A fool says in his heart, 'There is no God.'"
We often fail to quote there. We do not quote the entire verse. You've heard that statement your whole life. Let's read the entire verse. "The fool said in his heart: There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is no one who does good." That's the entire verse. What does the verse really say here? He said that God doesn't exist because he is corrupt and because he has done abominable works, so he doesn't want to believe that there is a God. The same is found in Psalm 53, verse 1. "The fool saith in his heart, There is no God. They corrupt themselves, and work abominable iniquity; there is none that doeth good." Therefore, according to 2 Peter, 3, according to Psalm 14, according to Psalm 53.
Listen to this. You say, "What makes you think that Richard Dawkins committed a heinous evil? First of all, we already know that he hates God. I don't think anyone doubts that. I don't think anyone disputes that. Listen to this story. This is from The Huffington Post Now, who here thinks that The Huffington Post is a radical conservative news channel No, this is a God-hating godless outlet and even they are denouncing the evil of Richard Dawkins "Comments on Richard Dawkins' pedophilia spark outrage" - that's the headline.
David Pakman: Richard Dawkins has made some statements that some find a little odd. Essentially, he advocated mild pedophilia. Richard Dawkins set the stage as the evolutionary biologist known for being what some consider an outspoken atheist. He told British magazine The Times that he was sexually abused as a child. He says a teacher got his hands on the shorts and it didn't do him any lasting damage. He later said that the exact quote was: "An unnamed teacher pulled me at the knee and put his hand down my shorts" when he was a kid. He said he didn't think the abuse, which he referred to as "fixing it," would do any lasting harm to any of us. I think it wasn't just for him that this was one, it was for some of his colleagues as well.
Pastor Anderson: You said you couldn't condemn what you called the "mild pedophilia" you experienced in an English school as a child in the 1950s. Where do beliefs like that come from? He was abused as a child and says, "I can't condone it. I can't condone my teacher, who was a guy, abusing me. It's not a big deal. It's just mild pedophilia." What a load of shit. This is the most renowned atheist there is. This is the kind of thing you are saying. He said that other boys in this group of schoolmates had been sexually abused by the same teacher, but concluded, "I don't think it did any lasting harm to any of us." I noticed something about you that you hate God. I wonder if this has anything to do with your being stalked.
"Oh no. It didn't do me any harm." No, it turned you into a God-hating atheist. You will often find that people, when disturbed, lash out and hate God, and unfortunately become God-haters. Not everybody. Of course, there is redemption there and many people who have been abused have been able to get over it and live normal, godly lives, but unfortunately there is a tendency for those who are abused to become bitter towards God. They shouldn't, but that's just a phenomenon. He said that the most notorious cases of pedophilia involved rape and even murder and that it shouldn't be framed as what he called a light thing.
Unless they kill you, I mean unless they just viciously abuse you, come on, it's just a little mild pedophilia. Look, anyone who says I think they're a pedophile because no normal person would justify pedophilia as, "No big deal." I'm telling you that Richard Dawkins is presumably a pedophile if he says it's okay. Why else would I be saying it's okay? Let's look at what Richard Dawkins considers child abuse. Here is a quote from his book The God Delusion. "Faith can be very, very dangerous, and deliberately implanting it in the vulnerable mind of an innocent child is a serious mistake." He says putting faith in the mind of an innocent child is a serious mistake, but only teasing and violating him lightly: "I can't condemn him. But don't you dare teach him the Bible."
You're going to tell me this man is so smart and oh he's so smart and oh oh oh how dare you, Pastor Anderson, speak against Richard Dawkins when he has more brains in his little finger than you do? all over your body? You're just an uneducated pumpkin because my apostle of sci-fi religion is way smarter than you are. No, he thinks pedophilia is acceptable and teaching the Bible is child abuse. You can't even make these things up. Truth is stranger than fiction. That's weird, isn't it?
Richard Dawkins: If you think about it, teaching children or allowing the notion that the Earth is 6,000 years old to be enacted in school is child abuse.
Pastor Anderson: Let's talk about the creation myth of this science fiction religion. Number one, we talk about preachers. There are these preachers. We're talking about one, Richard Dawkins. Let's get into something else. Let's talk about your creation myth. What does the Bible teach about creation? Go to chapter 1 of Genesis if you like. "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." I'll also read you Exodus 20, verse 11. "For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day. , and sanctified it." There we see that in six days God made heaven and earth. That's Genesis 1:1.
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" and "the sea and all that in them is", so there is no gap between Genesis 1, verse 1 and verse 2. For timing reasons, let's skip to verse 24 "And God said, 'Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds: beasts and serpents and wild beasts of the earth according to their kinds'; and it was so." Something that happens to plants and animals is that they reproduce after their own kind. This is not evolution. When we say type we don't necessarily mean the exact species or the exact variation. For example, the animal type doesn't change, but you can have a wide variety within that type. For example, you have a dog. That's a kind of animal, a dog. Right?
But you have all kinds of different dogs and they all look different. They all share a common ancestor. It's not like God told Noah to put every breed the American Kennel Club listed on the ark. Obviously, he only has two dogs, one male and one female. People would say, "Do you think all the dog breeds we see today came from two dogs?" They believe that all the animals we see today come from two animals. Hello? They think it's crazy that we think a poodle is related to a rottweiler or something, or a chihuahua is related to a Great Dane, but they don't think it's weird to think that an elephant is related to a tortoise. That's when they try to do calculations like, "There's no way the animals could fit on the ark" because they try to put every little variation of animal on the ark, every species, rather than every species.
You say, "What separates a class?" If they can breed with each other, it's the same type. OK? Obviously you can breed different types of dogs and they can breed together and so on. Everything produces after its own kind. What is the creation myth of science fiction religion? Now let's get into another one, one of the prophets of science fiction religion named Stephen Hawking.
Stephen Hawking: Because there are laws like gravity, the universe can and will create itself out of nothing. Spontaneous creation is why there is something rather than nothing. This is why the universe exists, why we exist. It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and start the universe.
Pastor Anderson: You may be wondering, "How did the universe create itself?" Because gravity. Hello idiot. How dare you? Wait a minute. Do you have a title? You're a science major, and I'm not talking about mimetics? I'm talking about real science. Do you have a degree in evolutionary biology? Do you have a degree in astrophysics? Do you have a degree in some kind of science? Hey? Because you can't even compare to these great men who preach this science fiction religion. Listen, I don't care if you understand or not, the universe can and will create itself out of nothing due to gravity. Because gravity, case closed. If you don't understand, well, you're too dumb to understand and I don't know what to tell you.
"Because there is a law like gravity, the universe can and will create itself out of nothing." Doesn't this really give new meaning to the verse, "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools"? How dare you insult Stephen Hawking's intelligence? If a guy said that to you on the street, you'd say, "Go home, you're drunk," but because he's Stephen Hawking, we take it very seriously and it's repeated in the news. This quote was all over the news for being profound. It's amazing. "Have you read Stephen Hawking's new book? It's fascinating. It's like a bestseller."
TV presenter: Did the universe need a creator? Not according to physicist and mathematician Stephen Hawking, who argues that God was not necessary for the creation of the world. Professor Hawking claims that the Big Bang creation theory can now be explained by science alone, without the need to consider some form of divine intervention.
Stephen Hawking: Because there are laws like gravity, the universe can and will create itself out of nothing. Spontaneous creation is why there is something rather than nothing. It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and start the universe.
TV presenter: According to Stephen Hawking, the latest theory is that our universe is just one of many and the laws of physics must mean that many other universes formed before the Big Bang. Would God have done all this just to create us? While the traditional religious view is that it took, at the very least, divine intervention to get it all started, scientists agree that Hawking's theory is controversial.
TV presenter: Many theoretical physicists would argue that we are now tackling issues that not long ago were considered beyond the realm of science and what we are inevitably doing is pushing religion into the background so that issues where only religion could give us hope to give us an answer, science is now doing it too.
Pastor Anderson: In the late 1970s, Hawking was elected Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University. Hawking's promotion coincided with a health crisis that prompted Hawking to accept, albeit reluctantly, some home nursing services. At the same time, he was also making a transition in his approach to physics, becoming more intuitive and speculative rather than insisting on mathematical proofs. Okay, so these guys are all about evidence. It's all about the evidence, right? No, it's more intuitive, man. Man, man, just smoke that. You'll understand black holes, man, I'm telling you. Man, this will take you to a whole new dimension, man. You won't need to rely so heavily on these mathematical proofs. That's what's holding you back, man. You have to be more intuitive. You need to be more speculative, man. Just take that drug, man. It'll open your mind to a whole new galaxy, man. It is more speculative than insisting on mathematical proofs. Who needs them? Who needs proof?
TV presenter: Although Stephen Hawking himself admits that the theory that there are multiple universes is just a theory, it has not yet been supported by any evidence, which may lead many to believe that science does not yet have all the answers.
Pastor Anderson: Hey, that's what he said. I'd rather be right than be strict. I'm not going to be rigorous in my testing and make sure this is actually correct. I'd rather say I'm right.
Lawrence Krauss: When you're a theoretical physicist speculating about what it might be, there's nothing more frightening or perhaps less plausible than the possibility that the universe obeys what you're saying. In my career, most of the time the universe isn't smart enough to do what I say it should. It's really remarkable when those highly speculative ideas that seem well motivated but sound too good to be true actually work.
Pastor Anderson: Hawking argued that computer viruses should be considered a new way of life. Is this guy smart or what? Hawking argued that computer viruses should be considered a new form of life and stated: "This perhaps says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. Talk about creating life on our own Imagine." You didn't create life, Stephen Hawking. You will never do it.
Pastor Anderson: Only God can create life. In an interview published in The Guardian, Hawking dismissed the concept of heaven as a myth, believing that there is no heaven or afterlife and that such a notion was a fairy tale for people who are afraid of the dark. Hawking claimed that, given the vastness of the universe, aliens probably exist, but contact with them should be avoided. The problem is that there is no evidence of aliens. None, zero, zero, nothing, but when you listen to these atheists, scientists, they all talk about aliens. Why? Because it's based on two things, a deep hatred for the God of the Bible, but don't forget element number two, science fiction. Here is an important source.
Michio Kaku: I love watching science fiction movies, but I cringe. I cringe every time I see a depiction of aliens. First, the aliens speak perfect English. Not just British English, they speak perfect American English and are obviously human in some kind of overalls.
When we physicists look for extraterrestrial civilizations, we don't look for little green men.
When we physicists look for alien life in outer space, we don't look for little green men. We're looking for Type One, Type Two, and Type Three civilizations. A Type One civilization harnessed planetary power. They control earthquakes, the weather, volcanoes. They have cities on the ocean. Anything planetary, they control. This is type one. A planetary civilization. A civilization that looks like something out of Buck Rogers or Flash Gordon. A type two civilization is stellar. They consume so much energy that they can play with the stars. That is, for example, the Federation of Planets in Star Trek. Star Trek would represent a typical type two civilization. They play with the stars. they are immortal. Nothing known to science can destroy a type two civilization. Then we have type three, which is galactic. The Star Wars Empire would correspond to a type three civilization. What are we on this scale? On this scale, are we like one controlling hurricanes, are we like two controlling star systems, are we like three galactic spaceways running? Do not. We are type zero.
Pastor Anderson: Let's move on to the fourth point, the eschatology of science fiction religion, the eschatology or end-time beliefs of this science fiction religion. When we think of our eschatology, it has to do with the second coming of Jesus Christ. Again, eschatology is just a fancy word for the study of the end times or the study of the last things. Well, what does our eschatology focus on? The second coming of Jesus Christ. The Book of Revelation, which gives end-time prophecy, begins by speaking of the second coming of Christ. It says, "Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him; and all the races of the earth will mourn for him. Yes, amen." Then it ends with: "Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the words of the prophecy of this book."
It begins and ends with, that's the theme, the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. There is an eschatology of science fiction religion that has to do with the arrival of extraterrestrials. We await the coming of Christ. They await the arrival of extraterrestrials. You talk about these guys, they say, "Inevitably, eventually, we're going to come into contact with aliens." Something like: "We are waiting for the return of Jesus". They are waiting for the aliens. They are waiting for UFOs to show up. Many of them are also afraid of these UFOs and they say: "It will be like when Columbus came to the Indians." The Indians did not fare so well. So it will be when the aliens come to us.
Part of their eschatology in this sci-fi religion is that they want a world government and a world now. I will briefly refer to one of the apostles of science fiction religion named Michio Kaku. This guy, Michio Kaku, is a very famous astrophysicist, and he says that if you're not in favor of a world government, if you're against a world government, you're a terrorist. Anyone who doesn't want a world government basically says, "You're a terrorist because you have to understand that this is our destiny."
Michio Kaku: The transition between type zero and type one and that's where we are today. This transition is perhaps the most important transition of all time. Some people don't. They fear this transition because this transition is to a planetary civilization tolerant of many cultures. These are the terrorists, who deep down fear this because they know they are witnessing the birth pangs of the beginning of a new planetary civilization and the terrorists want nothing to do with it. What is terrorist? In a sense, terrorism is a reaction against the creation of a type one civilization. They don't like the march towards a Type One civilization. Which trend will win? I don't know, but I hope we emerge as a Type One civilization.
Pastor Anderson: Here's the problem, no one has ever discovered a Type One civilization. There is no type one, type two or type three. Even he will admit that there is no evidence that there are aliens out there.
Michio Kaku: When we look into outer space, we don't see evidence of a one, two or three anywhere, no evidence at all. The math says there must be thousands of one, two, and three civilizations in the galaxy. We see no evidence of anything.
Pastor Anderson: However, it has all of that [inaudible 00:40:33]. It would be something like this. It would be like saying: "Basketball players can be classified into three categories, type one, type two and type three. A type one basketball player can dunk the ball in a 15-foot hoop. ball in a 20-foot hoop A type three basketball player can dunk the ball through a 25-foot hoop Do you know what Michael Jordan is Type zero Do you know what Shaquille O'Neal is Kareem Abdul "Jabbar? Do you know what these guys are? They are type zero. Wouldn't that be ridiculous and stupid since there's nobody who can do these things? does not exist. This is something you might expect to hear from someone like Michio Kaku and his inflated ego of his over-the-top intelligence saying, "We're looking for Type One, Type Two, and Type Three civilizations." Come on, haven't you seen Buck Rogers? Haven't you seen Star Trek? Haven't you seen Star Wars?
He said: "The only way we can go from type zero to type one is a world government. That's the only way. We have to unite in one world system and the people who don't want to unite are terrorists." Look at Psalm 2, verse 1. "Why do the nations rage, and the peoples think vain things? The kings of the earth rise, and the rulers meet in council" and this is what we see now, the rulers are uniting, the United Nations, and they take counsel against the Lord and against his anointed or his Christ. Saying, "Let us break their bonds, and cast their cords from us. He that dwelleth in heaven shall laugh." You say, "Why are you laughing at these guys this morning? Why are you making fun of them? Why are you making fun of a guy in a wheelchair?" Come on, you wouldn't make fun of a guy with glasses, would you? Let me tell you something, the reason I scoff, the Lord will scoff.
Pastor Anderson: He said, "I will mock when your fear comes." "The Lord will laugh: the Lord will mock them. Then he will speak to them in their anger, and afflict them in their bitter displeasure." We know that it is the antichrist who wants a world government, who wants a New World Order. This science fiction religion is in direct opposition to God's plan for this world. They want what the devil wants. That's what it all boils down to. These apostles of science fiction religion, I'll tell you why the media supports them. Because the media is run by people who want a world system. A conspiracy to create a New World Order is what's behind supporting these really smart guys who aren't as smart as we thought, right? It's a New World Order. It's about the devil.
Let's bow our heads and have a word of prayer. Father, we thank you so much for the clear teaching of your word, Lord. Thank you so much for the Baptist preachers that I grew up listening to and for the Baptist preachers that I would look up to today and admire and listen to their words and that I don't have to listen to that kind of foolish apostle. of science fiction. Lord, thank you that we have the word of God, which never changes, is always true, and surpasses any science book any day of the week.
