Darkened Hearts

Rationalization poses to harm society

Long ago I read in Scientific American that certain scientists advocated introducing large jungle animals to the American ecosystem because ours needed but lacked them.  I really don't how I would respond to a lion in my backyard or rhino on the side of the road.  Since then there have been innumerable odd ideas.  Do you know that farting cows are implicated in climate change?  I don't know what they think of the sheep, goats, and other ruminants.  If they could rid themselves of domestic ruminants how do they overlook that wild ruminants have been farting for at least thousands of years.  A former Google CEO event spent considerable money to research whether hamburger patties could be made in a lab in order the bypass the feared bovine.   Gas cans are also made inoperable by locking nozzles and removed vents.  Some thinking that concrete is a non-green resource propose wooden skyscrapers (seriously!).  They apparently did not watch people jump to their deaths from towering hotel fire long ago or remember September 11, 2001.  Other pundits assert that soon we will all ride autonomous cars which we cannot drive because of omitted steering wheels, which however with the inevitable technology backdoors will be driven by hackers and the NSA instead.  Others assert that because man is destroying the earth, that humankind should end by self-genocide.  That they should no longer have children at all and thus leave the world to the animals.

You might pass this off as the eccentricity of some, however this kind of thinking is posed to cause harm to society.  Imposing gender confusion by law is recognized by many logical people for its danger.  Consider also that carbon is acquitted of guilt regarding the weather by exculpatory evidence.  An approximately one Celsius degree rise (much less than yearly fluctuations) is blamed for weather anomalies causing much harm.  However this rise is reckoned to have begun about 1800 with carbon emissions having added its part beginning 1955.  A little logic here.  If the temperature rise in question operated for three-quarters of that period apart from carbon emissions, how can carbon be guilty.  Some other cause must be sought.  Instead the name has been changed from "Global Warming" to "Climate Change" because of the logical anomaly while the scapegoating of carbon continues.  Then the pursuit of this illusion poses great cost in its implementation and in the economic harm posed by some faulty energy policy that results.

For a natural explanation to such illogical thinking, I propose that a large part of the population especially involving the liberal elite have rationalized immoral policies and ideas unsupportable by logic until they have blunted their ability to think clearly.  To deny that abortion is murder or to assert that one's birth gender is a lie requires a high level of self-deception.  Then when self-deception is practiced scrupulously for decades of one's life, the ability to think logically then would elude them when needed.  Then they declare themselves smarter and more qualified to rule than those who lack such a mental handicap.  Perhaps we should head the warning of Jesus:

They be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.   (Matthew 15:14)

Spiritually God has them  as is it written

He taketh the wise in their own craftiness (Job 5:13, 1Cor 3:19)

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkenedProfessing themselves to be wise, they became fools.  ...  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.  (Romans 1:20-22,26-28)

Don't lead me to the ditch, I will not follow!
