March For Science Sounds More Religious Than Scientific

Another march took place Saturday in downtown DC ---this march was supposedly for science, but it sounded more like a religious gathering---cultish---and I'm not the only one who noticed.

The march, which organizers said included about a million people worldwide, featured anti-faith, pro-climate change, pro-LGBTQ activists, unions, abortion rights activists...and of course those who hate Trump.

All in the name of "science."

Who pays for this kind of science demonstration?

Saturday's march was the second annual for the "March for Science" organization. By most accounts, Saturday's march was smaller than last year's march, but none-the-less driven by zeal.

The group's website says they are marching for a science that represents "inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility"...that "breaks down barriers between scientists and non-scientists."

Their kind of science, apparently, is designed to affirm certain per-determined outcomes. In fact the organization has published a book titled, " How To Advocate Guide," to help in schools and local government.

But what are they actually advocating for? And who is paying the bills?

Who is paying the bills gives a pretty clear view of what these million or so folks are advocating for.

Their sponsors include Tom Steyer's NextGen Climate of America, the Nature Conservancy, American Atheists, American Federation of Teachers, American Humanist Association, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, Citizen's Climate Lobby, Environmental Defense Fund, Friends of the Earth, Hip Hop Caucus, National Center for Transgender Equality and Spread the Vote.

The speakers included an illegal alien college student, Evelyn Valdez Ward; Dr. Vinton Cerf, vice president and chief internet evangelist at Google; and a child named "Little Miss Flint" who was invited to the White House by President Obama after the Flint, Mich. water scandal.

Last year's featured speaker Bill Nye the "Science Guy" reflects the substance of the march.

William Sanford Nye, as you may know, was formerly an engineer at Boeing in Seattle. He has a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering.

While working at Boeing, Nye did a stand-up comedy routine of Steve Martin at night in clubs around Seattle.

Nye then got a 7-minute segment on a local Seattle TV show that morphed into "Bill Nye The Science Guy" fame.

While Nye now has 6 PhD degrees, they are all honorary, which again highlights his personal ambitions, but not any scientific achievements.

With all due respect for his drive and zeal to become famous, Nye is hardly a science guy---probably more a science "guise."

Several have noted that the March for Science looks and feels like something other then science.

Mackenzie Mittleman, who attended the march both last year and this year, told CNN, "There definitely aren't as many people present this year, but people and speakers here are equally as passionate."

When asked what she was passionate about, she replied, "I'm advocating for so many things."

Even one of their own---Slate Magazine, probably the most influential homosexual advocacy publication in the country, is questioning their scientific legitimacy.

While I won't link the magazine due to the language, Jeremy Samuel Faust wrote yesterday, "Being 'pro-science' has become a bizarre cultural phenomenon in which liberals engage in public displays of self-reckoned intelligence as a kind of performance art."

And he wrote, "Let's face it: People like science when it supports their views."

Ironically this comes from the community who claims they are "born that way" when there is not a single bit of scientific evidence that supports the notion that homosexuals are born that way.

If Saturday's March for Science left any enduring impression, it has to be this: A diverse group of people from the likes of Bill Nye to Little Miss Flint have found a common thread that brings them together---and it certainly isn't the love of science.

It's a common goal of using any cultural institution to advance their particular agenda, and for the most part---I believe--that it is a spirit of rebellion against God---the Creator.

Antonio Gramsci, a disciple of Karl Marx, advocated for what he called "a long march through the institutions" to indoctrinate the people and using the institutions, to ultimately bring about the triumph of cultural Marxism.

This is part of that march.

My old friend from youth pastor days, Winkie Pratney, often said, "Intellectual deception always follows moral rejection."

And CS Lewis said, "A creature revolting against a creator is revolting against the source of his own powers--including even his power to revolt. It is like the scent of a flower trying to destroy the flower."

Be Informed. Be Faithful. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.
