In my previous posts I explained that as time goes along, neo-paganism will be coming to prominence where nature itself is seen as inherently
intelligent, intelligently designing itself to more complex life forms over time, in order to scoot around the problem of irreducible complexity.
Something you all might want to keep an eye out for is something called "Natural Genetic Engineering" promoted by a few biologists like James Shapiro.
The idea is that the cell contains the info or the mechanisms to promote the construction of complex genetic functions and body plans of creatures.
Because of this complexity, they basically conclude that the "intelligent designer" or "guiding intelligence" behind sentient life forms is the cell
itself, even though they know full well that a cell all by itself has no purpose as it needs DNA to tell it what to do every moment of the day in the
first place. So it is still based on a faulty materialistic premise, and would plausibly serve as a bridge to the idea of the universe being
inherently intelligent, or as a pagan would say, god is a force of nature.
To James Shapiro's credit, he admits in the link below that he can only explain its mechanical effects, that being gene transfer, symbiogenesis, gene
duplication. He can't explain the cause or the mechanical processes that takes this raw data and reshuffles it to adapt to new conditions, or the
actual mechanisms that need to exist to account for what he calls "natural genetic engineering".
What Natural Genetic
Engineering Does and Does Not Mean
Its primarily the last paragraph in the post that peaked my interests, and further suspicions about characters like James Shapiro where he states
"If experiments show that cells can make distinct appropriate NGE responses to different adaptive challenges occurs, we need to figure out how
they do so. This almost certainly would prove to be more than a strictly mechanical process. How do cells carry out their computations to make useful
goal-oriented responses? A successful answer to that question will certainly involve cybernetics. If such investigations take evolution science into
areas that are more than strictly material, so be it. As long as we stay within the realm of natural processes, there are no boundaries on what
science can address."
This is also the same type of response James Shapiro gave to creationist William A. Dembski about the origins of this process he terms Natural Genetic
Engineering. He stated that "where they come from in the first place is not a question we can realistically answer right now". One would consider such
statements to be a bit of an oxymoron. On one hand, he insists on limiting ourselves to "the realm of natural processes," but on the other hand states
that these may exceed the limits of the "strictly material. Such statements make no sense in of itself until you realize that it will likely be Dark
Matter that will be given as the ultimate cause of this process. As I stated before, the explanation will be similar to Qui Gon Jinn's explanation of
"the force" in Star Wars episode 1. They will claim that there is a ghostly cloud of invisible matter, a fundamental particle that binds the cosmos
together and resides within all living things down to the cellular level. We will be right back in ancient Greek and Babylon with their Atomist and
Epicurean religions, where they also taught that matter, or atoms have inherent designing properties.
I'll replace the terms "the force" and "Midi-Chlorians" with "Dark matter" and you'll get an idea of the type of "scientific" psycho babble we can
expect to hear for the origin of everything.
ANAKIN : Master, sir...I've been wondering...what is Dark Matter?
QUI-GON : Dark Matter is a microscopic/sub atomic particle that resides within all living cells and communicates with the cosmos.
ANAKIN : They live inside of me?
QUI-GON : In your cells. We are symbionts with Dark Matter.
ANAKIN : Symbionts?
QUI-GON : Life forms living together for mutual advantage. Without Dark Matter, life and the universe itself could not exist, and we would have no
knowledge of the Force. They continually speak to you, telling you the will of the Force.
ANAKIN : They do??
QUI-GON : When you learn to quiet your mind, you will hear them speaking to you.
ANAKIN : I don't understand.
QUI-GON : With time and training, Annie...you will.
Yeah, you have to take this "mark" in your right hand or forehead which will completely open you up at the cellular level, allowing you to harness
this 'Dark Energy' that resides within you (demons). You'll begin to hear it speaking to you, giving you the power to become immortal like us, knowing
the very nature of good and evil, like a god. What we are being prepared for are outright replacements of sound Biblical doctrine. Just like E.T will
be the replacement for angels, materialist beliefs in things like dark matter will serve as the replacement for demons, the powers of heaven, and God
himself. I'm almost 100% certain that something like this will end up being the "god of forces" the anti-Christ will honor in the temple.
