Philosophical insanity, theological insanity, scientific insanity, cultural insanity, social insanity, familial insanity and even individual insanity all have building blocks, and a foundation. Barring some chemical, hormonal or other physical problem at the individual level, it and all higher levels of "group" insanity are highly infectious. Many of the building blocks, as well as the original foundation, may bring about epidemics, pandemics or even plagues of social insanity.
It begins with the denial of God. That is the foundation. Even a merely weakened belief in God can lead to nonsense, and more nonsense always leads the way back to ultimate God Denial, which is the foundation stone of infectious cultural lunacy. The "Building Blocks" are ideological falsehoods. Sometimes, one or another of these false ideological building blocks can be so attractive to a believer as to be accepted as true, and that acceptance can lead the believer just a little closer to ultimate God Denial.
Social acceptance of such nonsense ultimately ends with cultural death.
The most successful God-Denial building blocks all have the ring of truth about them; they all sound good. They sound so good that, if they have the support of many others, that consensus alone is enough to convince someone that it must be true, and so they see no need to look into it any further or put it to the test.
God Denial itself is, at the very least, unreasonable and unscientific, as illustrated in Faith v Atheism, Reason v Materialism, Why Believe in God, Objective Reality, Faith and Reason, and elsewhere herein. The atheist cannot prove that God does not exist, yet he firmly believes, on faith alone, that God does not exist, which says that the atheist is a faith-filled or faithful person. He holds to a strictly faith-based belief system, which is pretty close to being a religious belief system.
God Denial, on its own, is pretty weak as a reasoned argument. It needs other Building Blocks to help it make sense. With Truth it's exactly the other way round; the Foundation of the building needs nothing; the Building Blocks all need the Foundation. Truth is the exact opposite of God Denial.
The three most effective among all God Denial Building Blocks working to the detriment of Western Civilization are, of course, Darwinism, Freudianism and Marxism. All claim to be Scientific Theories; none may be shown to have ever followed the Scientific Method or to have ever been proven. Darwinism is touted to be a Science of Life, Freudianism is touted to be a Science of the Mind, and Marxism is touted to be a Science of Societies, or a Social Science; none are demonstrably scientific.
Darwin Refuted showed that no event of natural speciation (macro evolution) has ever been so much as observed by anyone, in all of recorded history, nor has such an event been found in the massive fossil record. Let alone independently verified or ever proven by anyone, including Darwin. Thus there is a total lack of scientific evidence supporting the theory of natural evolution of new species.
Freud Refuted showed that no Subconscious Mind and no Repressed Memory has ever been so much as observed by anyone, in all of recorded history, nor has any such manifestation ever been independently observed or verified or ever proven by anyone, including Freud. Thus, there is a total lack of scientific evidence supporting Psychoanalysis.
Marx Refuted showed that no "Pure Materialism", no state of "Communism", no "Historical Materialism" or anything else supporting Marx's theory has ever been so much as observed by anyone, in all of recorded history, nor has any such manifestation ever been independently observed or verified or ever proven by anyone, including Marx. Thus, there is a total lack of scientific and historical evidence supporting Marx's theories.
And yet, today, all over the world, Darwinism, Freudianism and Marxism are all held to be somehow Scientific, and proven, and beyond questioning. What these three God Denial Building Blocks have done is displaced objective truth with subjective "truth", which is to say, pure personal opinion. I call them all -isms because they smack of ideology or false religion rather than science. All are taught as unquestionably true in formal education all over the world. But when what is taught is false, it is not education; it is indoctrination.
In the cases of Freudianism and Marxism, the theories were from the beginning and still are purposeful outright frauds. Darwin may have been trying to do real science; but he was rushed to publish early due to being pressed by "scientific competition", if that makes any sense, when another scientist might have published the same theory first. In which case, it would not be called "Darwin's Theory". But he never proved it, before or after publication, nor did his cheif competitor, and since then, neither has anyone else. As I said, it is opinion. An unsupported hypothesis, and nothing more.
These three God Denial Building Blocks under gird the devolution of real Science into Scientism, in which the Scientific Method is displaced and replaced by mere Democratic "Scientific Consensus". And science done by Democratic Vote rather than application of the Scientific Method always seems to provide, guess what, more God Denial Building Blocks.
With public acceptance of each false Building Block The World is emphasized over The Kingdom. Making The World a better place slowly displaces the need to prepare for the After Life. Thus, doing man's will displaces doing God's will. It even goes so far as to teach that man can take control of nature itself. Man can displace God. For the good of The World.
The desire for Heaven is slowly displaced by the drive to make Utopia. A Perfected World. Heaven on earth. Everything in balance; perfected "sustained" populations; perfected human culture; perfect justice everywhere; elimination of hunger and want; man living in perfect harmony with all beautiful ecosystems and carefully controlled climate.
But Marxism has commandeered just about all the God Denial Building Blocks for its own purposes, and the real goal of Marxism is not Utopia, but Dystopia - the exact opposite of Utopia. Complete disorder, chaos and open revolution are the necessary conditions for the rise of Dictatorship, through the brutal crushing of revolution and restoring of order. That's the real goal of Marxism, a la Machiavelli and Hegel.
All of Marx's false history and false theories aim at convincing future armies of "Useful Idiots" and sacrificial "Agent Provocateurs" to bring about the necessary disorder, chaos and uprisings. They believe in the fraud of Marxism strongly enough to work to make it come true. Marxism's incited, dedicated and committed Agent Provocateurs never even realize that they have been purposely set up for slaughter. The Ends Justify The Means.
Meanwhile, under Scientism, more and more false God Denial Building Blocks are introduced into formal education (indoctrination) and each one of them incorporates into the young minds exactly what to think rather than how to think. It is preparation for human herding. The advance of herd mentality over independent thought and critical thinking. Just look at all the unmitigated garbage pushed as real science among all the Scientism Pages.
Now, it is all coming to a head. Having lost track of God, today most of the world has lost track of the difference between Good and Evil, or even the existence of Good and Evil. Most of the world does not see Marxism as Evil. Most of the world does not see Islam as Evil. Perhaps most of the world is no longer Good.
Again, and not for the first time, Marxism and Islam are linking up in common cause. Not totally, and not every branch and subset of either ideology, but enough to raise the specter of attempted massive if not global conquest. And other unlinked branches and subsets of each ideology are not standing still. And, whether most of the world believes it or not, they are Evil.
Which branch or subset of Islam is the most barbaric? Flip a coin. Which branch or subset of Marxism is the most barbaric? Again, flip a coin.
Comrade President Brack Hussein Obama, peace be upon him, can go either way. He can be Marxist, Moslem, or both. His rabid anti-Americanism has been clear and obvious all of his private life, all of his public life and all of his political life. He displays his opposition to Israel and the Jews at every single opportunity. He displays his support for the enemies of America and of Israel, again, at every single opportunity. He violates the American Constitution and he violates American law with virtually every action he takes, or fails to take.
He sows disorder, chaos and potential revolution with almost every domestic action he takes and word he utters. He incites disorder, chaos and potential revolution in foreign lands with every diplomatic statement and every international agenda he advances. He is determined to see Iran go nuclear, and to suppress Israel, to give aid and comfort to our enemies, and to snub, insult and alienate our allies.
Multiple factions of Islam have vowed to raise the black flag of Islam over the White House. Most Americans see that as a threat to the American President. I don't see it that way. He is obviously on their side. If and when any Moslems are ready to raise that flag over the White House, Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, would be more than happy to do the honors and raise that flag himself.
That's the sorry state God Denial has brought us to.
We just can't believe what's right in front of our faces.
Disassociation from reality = insanity.

stop plamming the arabs, it the zionist who are the problem

From: Vic Biorseth
That's a lie, on two counts. First, I'm not blaming Arabs, but Islam. Second, it is the current government of so-called Palestine whose charter calls for the the elimination of Israel and the extermination of the Jews, not the other way round.

I really enjoyed this article. Immediately I reflected on passages referring to the beginning of wisdom, which is 'fear of the Lord'. But I also reflected on Solomon whom concludes, all things are vanity and vexation except for 'fear of the Lord' and keeping His commandments.(Ecc 12:13) Ever since I decided to pray and seek more truth(wisdom)I worry more and sleep less. For Solomon also mentions;'I applied my heart to know wisdom and to know madness and folly. I perceived that this also is but a striving after wind. In much wisdom is much vexation, and he who increases knowledge increases sorrow'.
Denial of God, I suppose, has much if not everything to do with exalting nonsense and there are many roads that lead to common nonsense. The pathway to Darwinism for example can be traced back to the Galileo issue and his discovery that; the SUN does not rise, when we all know and profess, The SON did rise! A pivotal point to believing the Church and Genesis got it all wrong and the spirit of Ecumenism began. Another pathway was led by digging up dinosaur bones and it placed a big question mark in every human head. Today we are finding dino-bones having soft tissue and blood vessels within, which means they are not 70 million years old!
Humans can only take in and digest so much before we begin to regurgitate the lies. ...Only in God will he find the truth and happiness he never stops searching for.-CCC 27. There's much to say on this matter but I said enough.

Thank you; I appreciate those words. But I got lost on your "pivotal point"; what, exactly, did the Church and Genesis get wrong?

What little current news I glean from talk radio commentary stirred some thought on three subjects, and this seemed the most appropriate page on which to express them.
First, all the ideologically Marxist God Deniers are increasingly calling for the suppression or even punishment of Global Warming Deniers, under the false charge of being Science Deniers. They would like to make that against the law or something. The most interesting thing about that is that there is no empirical, material or even historical scientific evidence supporting any aspect of Global Warming theory, theology, doctrine or dogma. It is not and cannot possibly be called scientific, or supported by any real science at all. There is no science behind "Greenhouse Gas" or its real effect on the climate. There is only "scientific" consensus on conjecture, which is to say, guesswork. So it is the God Deniers who are in fact the real Science Deniers here. Climate Change theory can only be called a silly superstition, or perhaps a false religion. God Deniers are therefore more correctly thought of as rigidly dogmatic religious fundamentalists.
Second, there are all the current Administration and State Department ongoing "negotiations" with Iran, and we must wonder what these negotiators are negotiating, given Iran's quite public positions. Perhaps we are negotiating how best to bring about the death of America; perhaps we are negotiating how best to bring about the elimination of Israel; perhaps we are negotiating exactly how to kill all the Jews. Since those are Iran's irrevocably committed positions, upon which they will not waver, they must be what our Administration and our State Department are negotiating. Why else would they negotiate?
Third, there are the rapid, almost out-of-control advances in run-away technology. While I applaud the increasing global citizen inter-connectivity through the internet, which may allow us to bypass and obsolete the News Media, all potential blessing comes with potential curses. Self-driving cars are a good example. Anything mechanical can fail; in fact, I personally assure you, anything mechanical will eventually fail. I guarantee it.
Proponents look forward to a day when all cars will drive themselves and it will become illegal for people to take the wheel. In this dream world, there will never again be any such thing as a traffic accident. I look at the same technological future and I see cars flying off of bridges and crashing through construction barriers, with sleeping passengers in the back seat. No one asks the simple question, "When one of these self-driving cars causes an accident in which someone is killed, who gets the ticket?" It will happen. Sooner or later, it will happen.
If you want to build a completely independent and personally owned actual website, like this one, this is how you do it.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
