Have you had enough of the falsehoods and deceit coming from our societal leaders? The steady stream of what the sophisticated elite call nuance, and clear thinkers, called damned lies, is becoming more than nauseating.
Last week I wrote about the current “Big Lie” — manmade global warming. Every day we get another pronouncement about the horrors of carbon, you know the element all life is based on. Honestly, a fourth grader can defeat this nonsense.
Remember, “If you like your plan, you can keep it”? Tell that to the millions that have had their medical insurance policies canceled. Of course, Washington bureaucrats have exempted themselves.
How about all those “shovel ready” jobs that turned out to be not so shovel ready?
Then there’s, “I never sent or received any classified emails on my server”. Hey, Hillary, orange is the new black!
And one of my favorites, “If you give us a majority in the Senate, we will repeal Obamacare”. We gave the Republicans the Senate and what did they do? They immediately voted to fund every aspect of Obamacare. The scoundrels.
And a blast from the past just to keep things lighthearted, “I never had sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky”. There is still a sizable part of our population that wants this back in the White House.
I can go on and on rattling more of these off. The point is that these examples of deceit not only damage us in ways specific to the situations they pertain to, but they also tear at the fabric of our civil society. We are lied to every day by those paraded in the media as the ones that really matter. Our cultural foundations are being steadily eroded as a result.
The lies, dishonesty, and immorality we live with today stem from what I believe is the biggest lie of all. This lie has been promoted for over a century and has done more to destroy our culture and our sense of who we are than any other idea in history.
The Biggest Lie robs us of our value as human beings. The Biggest Lie robs us of universal right and wrong. The Biggest Lie robs us of unalienable rights. The Biggest Lie robs us of absolute truth. The Biggest Lie allows us to sacrifice sixty million unborn children and throw out thousands of years of history on what constitutes marriage.
So what is the Biggest Lie? The Biggest Lie is what your children are exclusively being taught in school. The Biggest Lie is what will prevent a college professor from getting tenure if he dares to speak against it. The Biggest lie is what tyrants used to justify the extermination of tens of millions of people in the twentieth century.
The Biggest Lie defines man as simply the result of natural selection acting on random mutations to cellular DNA. This lie says that we are merely the culmination of a long line of accidents and we really don’t have any more value than a bird, a tree, or a snail darter. Coupled with the misconception that there is nothing beyond the physical, material universe, the Biggest Lie dictates that truth and morality become expedient and are defined by whoever has the most power.
There is hope though. The viability of the Biggest Lie is rapidly eroding. All scientists agree that biological life is based on information. The DNA code in your cells is very much like the computer program that is allowing you to read this. However, it is far more complicated than anything man can do at this point. There is only one source we know of that can produce such complexity — a mind.
We now know contrary to the Neo-Darwinist view, that just making changes to cellular DNA will not get you to a new organism. That simply allows for new proteins to be synthesized and will not result in new body plans.
Scientists have recently discovered another vast amount of biological information called epigenetic information contained in cellular structures. This information governs how cells form into tissues and then into organs and new body plans. And to make sure the process of organism growth and development is properly coordinated, scientists have discovered what they call developmental gene regulatory networks. These make sure the right genes in the DNA code are executed at the appropriate time.
The bottom line is that if you are going to develop a new species, you have to change all three of these, the DNA code, the epigenetic information, and the developmental gene regulatory network in a very coordinated way. The odds of this happening by chance are virtually impossible. Stop listening to the anthropologists and zoologists (and politicians) and start listening to what the microbiologists and biochemists are saying.
The point is that the best fit to the data we have is that there is a vast intelligence behind life. This intelligence is not only responsible for the creation of biological information but also provides the grounding necessary for objective truth and morality. It is the source of our unalienable rights. This intelligence made a decision to create and impute us with immeasurable worth.
Our society has become unmoored from the understanding that there is a Creator beyond space and time and that He created us for His purpose. The results of this decoupling are all around us.
