We live in a world of ever changing science. By its very nature and definition science must continue to change as new generations evolve. This is why our schools are constantly ordering new text books and requiring our children to embrace new theories put forth by scientist more advanced in technology than their predecessors. Unfortunately for mankind this really means that science can never be completely settled. Theories will always remain theories and proven facts by one generation will be rebuked by the next.
There are some facts in life that cannot be rebuked and will always be a constant truth. When man reaches the point that he believes he is as smart or smarter than our creator then that man is doomed to fail. When a Nation becomes so arrogant that they choose science and a few scientific theories as the answer to all of the world's problems, then that Nation is doomed to fail. No Nation that believes it is more knowledgeable or powerful than our creator can withstand the wrath of our creator.
The people of Babylon decided they were as smart or smarter than the creator and decided to build the Tower of Babel reaching into Heaven. They soon learned they were not as smart as they thought they were. They became confused and could not complete their goal because like it or not there are some things in life that mankind will never be able to accomplish. Entering the gates of Heaven without permission in our earthly bodies is one thing science will never accomplish. Challenging our creator without suffering the consequence of our actions is another.
Arrogance and having the sense that we are always smarter than the previous generation has been a fault that has plagued mankind since the very beginning of time itself. Scientific scholars and teachers once believed time had no beginning and therefore could have no end. Now they teach with absolute certainty the age of the earth and the universe. They also claim the Big Bang Theory along with Global Warming or Climate Change are both settled science.
I can't help but wonder what the next 1 or 2 generations will have to say about these settled sciences. One hundred years from now I can say with somewhat certainty that I will not be around to find out the answer but I can't help but wonder.
What does any of this have to do with the United States economy or the challenges facing the world today ? Being led by Leaders that are the most arrogant Leaders in modern history, we are becoming that arrogant Nation and World that is destined to fail. This President, Congress and Leaders around the world that believe they can solve all of our problems by throwing more money at the problem will destroy their economies. Leaders like President Obama and this Democrat controlled Congress that put all of their faith in science and technology will find themselves in the same position as the people of Babylon, dazed and confused when their faith in science and technology fails to become a reality. Leaders that believe they will survive the final battle as the most righteous are the most arrogant and dangerous leaders in the world. No man can forecast the end of time and no man can know the true destiny of mankind.
What can we as simple people do to stop the madness of the world? We must ask questions of our leaders. We must challenge our leaders when we believe they are wrong. And most importantly, we must replace our leaders when they do not listen to the people they represent.
