About this blog:

This site was not developed with the intention of drawing a large number of visitors using trivial methods and shallowness. There is rejoicing among the angels when even one sinner repents and believes in Jesus Christ. (Luke 15:10) If, for as long as this site exists, just one sinner is led to repentance and belief in Christ with the aid of the material presented here, the purpose of this site has been served.

      Why Modern Humanists Have the Inherent Need to Manipulate

      Thursday, September 20, 2007

      Modern humanism has an inherent need to manipulate and tinker with the natural processes, including human nature [through genetics], because humanism:

      1. Rejects the doctrine of Creation.

      2. Therefore rejects the idea that there is anything stable or "given" about human nature.

      3. Sees human nature as part of a long, unfolding process of development in which everything is changing.

      4. Casts around for some solution to the problem of despair that this determinist-evolutionist vision induces.

      5. Can only find a solution in the activity of the human will, which -- in opposition to its own system -- it hopes can transcend the inexorable flow of nature and act upon nature.

      6. Therefore encourages manipulation of nature, including tinkering with people, as the only way of escaping from nature's bondage. But this manipulation cannot have any certain criteria to guide it because, with God abolished, the only remaining criterion is nature (which is precisely what humanist man wants to escape from) and nature is both noncruel and cruel.
