We are, he believes, “a malignant maladaption in the corpus of living organisms, and behave and reproduce like a virus out of control” (2). We are “infected tissue in the organism of life” (3). “More than ever,” he writes, “humans can be regarded like certain species of ant” (5).The only relief from this that Tickell sees on the horizon is that “it is hard to believe that there will be anything like current or future human numbers in their present urban concentrations or elsewhere. Whether weeded out by warfare, disease, deteriorating conditions of life, or other disasters, numbers are likely to fall drastically. We must, I believe, expect some breakdowns in human society before the end of this century with unforeseeable outcomes” (4). That’ll teach us to pollute his nice clean world!This dovetails with the previous post where we see that collectivists don't see the beauty of the individual, each uniquely created by God, but as a horde of groups and subgroups to be controlled and manipulated. Who else hates the human race this much or more? Oh, yes..
Get the picture? This guy is part of the founding families of the new world order, his great-great grandfather being T.H. Huxley himself. One aspect of the elites I like to examine is their religious and moral beliefs. How convenient Mr. Tickell put up this interview about that very subject.
So you took instruction and became a Catholic, observing Catholic yourself.You won't be sitting down and the conversation will be one-sided. He thinks humans are just monkeys, I guess his great-grandpa would be proud. Of course, this line of thinking makes culling humans morally justifiable, and we saw that with the Georgia Guidestones someone out there wants a lot of humans dead.
Only for a very short time. I remember that the Jesuit who instructed me who was a well-known person called Father Martindale, whenever I came up against great difficulty he would put his hand upon mine and say 'Have faith my child, have faith.' But after a bit I realised that wasn't enough, and I didn't actually spend very long in the Catholic Church, because I was uncertain about its whole intellectual structure, and I still am.
Where did the doubts creep in then? Was this to do with fraternizing with the chimpanzees? (Laughs)
(Laughs) No. I just thought it was a very, very unlikely tale, the Christian tale - it seems to me that you're piling improbability upon improbability. And it goes back much more than people I think realize, to the extremely unlikely story of the Fall of Man. Because if Adam and Eve had not fallen, or if symbolically people had not learnt what sin was about, then you don't need a Redeemer, and you don't need all the rest of the apparatus. And so a lot of it goes back to the Fall. And when I became interested in anthropology, this seemed to me an extremely improbable phenomenon, because I see humans as being like any other primate, gradually moving in a certain direction with evidently mutations taking place, and gradually becoming aware of philosophy and understanding and language and art and all the rest of it. But I don't see anything like a fall. If you don't have a fall, you don't need a redeemer. If you don't need a redeemer, then what is this nonsense about, about having to be sacrificed on the cross for humanity? Again, you then get into the question of was ... Jesus God, or wasn't He? And it seems to me again it's an extremely unlikely tale that He ever was. I've always wanted all my life, to sit down with Him and have a good conversation.
Isn't the point about Christianity that it, it's the unlikeliness of the tale that makes it the great faith it is?If I'm going to believe in a God powerful enough to create the universe, then why would it be too hard to believe what He did in a Book which He wrote objectively explaining it to you? Apparently this concept is too hard for this poor, unregenerate man.
Well I don't think so is the answer - I simply cannot believe this extraordinary heap of beliefs. And when you compare it with other beliefs and other religions as I think we all have to do, you realize that in many respects, Christianity is one of the most improbable of the lot. It's very interesting - how can people believe all this stuff? How did people believe the other things that they believe? I think the human mind is an infinitely flexible instrument which is capable of taking on almost any set of beliefs - sometimes you dress them up in reason afterwards - but the emotional reasons behind any religion are the most important, and I think the rationalization that takes place is, or is not improbable or implausible - and I'm afraid Christianity is among the most implausible.
And did you, how did you fill the, the gap that was left then, as, as a young person you'd been a serving Christian. Did you feel a, a lack of an explanation or ideology? And indeed, where does Christianity sit now in your world view?He derides Christianity as not being intellectual and an emotional religion, which is just what the devil would say, wouldn't he? He speaks in opposite land where up is down and wrong is right. This statement is ludicrous given that it was the church that preserved the knowledge of the ancient world, it was Christian men determined to show God's order of the universe through scientific discovery that made the modern world possible. The rationality of a God outside of ourselves who instead of snapping His fingers and changing His Creation on a whim, which He is within His right to do, plays by His own set of rules. He is orderly, reasonable, and just. His Book has been preserved through the centuries unchanged as the Dead Sea Scrolls have proved. In it, the God of the universe describes the beginning, middle, and end of human history and His plan for it. The gobblegook spouted by Mr. Tickell is what is unrational-- just as God said would happen in the last days:
I think it's a system of belief that I respect in the same way as I respect other systems of belief, and I find it a very interesting subject. I find it's rather enjoyable to discuss it with people. You'd be surprised how few priests and other advocates of Christianity are in fact willing to get down to the intellectual foundations and have a look at them, because they don't like doing it. But filling a gap - I didn't really feel a great gap, because I think the most important thing that we have is life itself, and when I start to look at the improbability of life and its manifestations since the very beginnings probably 4 billion years ago, I find that of such interest, that I feel very much at one with living things wherever they may be.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
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 darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Have pity on these elites who live in such spiritual darkness that they don't even realize that they are in a horrible trap. The fact that God has put the world into a deep freeze with these people promoting global warming shows how they are like gnats to Him. These people will ultimately never succeed in their plans because God is sovereign and in control. I'm reminded of what God said in Genesis 15:19:
...for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.
God is waiting for the resevoir of His wrath to be filled. Every abortion, every broken home, every blasphemy, every two-bit scheme like AGW puts a drop into His wrath bucket. The time will come when it will be filled and like a threatening parent, that really will be IT. Game. Over. Man. Those who mock Him with their stupid assertions that a God who purports to have created the universe wouldn't be able to do the math on human reproduction and the surface area of the earth- are in for a rougher time than we mundanes. Pray for Crispin Tickell, as he is lost without hope, and is not above using deceit and trickery to push eugenics on the world's population.
