Multiversical?

relic-radiation_2888396b

~ ITEM: Max Tegmark: It’s goodbye to the universe – hello to the multiverse

~ THINGS MAY SURPRISE me, but I can’t rule anything out of court when it comes to the wonder and complexity of God’s creation. Einstein already speculated that there may be 6 more dimension other that 3D & time.. here’s another physicist wondering.. via theory & experimentation & revised theory, one hopes, that there are indeed, somehow, overlapping or unseen dimensions.

Go figure.

Already, I’m hearing the whiny atheists explain how this ‘proves’ that since there may be a whole universe, and multiverses, that there’s still no God, we’re still mechanical accidents, any anybody who says otherwise is stupid, I tell you, stupid, stupid. You know, ’cause one amazing answer fits all news, questions, discoveries, and longings. Because, Science™.

Me, I’d like to let my Christian mind soak in the possibilities, and ponder the heavens declaring the glories and power and creative love of God, even the stuff we haven’t seen yet, or understood, or worked out. Not because I’m always right, but because even with an eternal universe(s) or multiverses, creation by whom is still a question, and not one completely answered by the bad metaphysics and worse philosophy of latter-day agnostics; not one to be answered properly by scientists, since “why and who” are not scientific categories. It does not therefore follow that they are illegitimate categories, or impossible to know categories, just that there are many kinds of knowing: natural, poetical, spiritual, emotional, lyrical, artistic, architectural, literary. You know, all the stuff that makes us human and whole and complete and civilized people.

Persistent Mysteries

After all, the team of.. wait for it.. actual scientists who studied the Shroud of Turin in 1977 could not discover how it was made– only how it was not made: that is, by any technique known to art or science. If we presume that God’s existence and direct action are impossible, then it’s got to be a fraud, or just some weird thing we can’t figure out, ruling out ahead of time any answer that does not bend the knee to materialist atheism. That’s called begging the question, or a circular argument: taking as already granted exactly what is under question. “So, Dr. Jeckyll, are you still beating your wife?” Or, since we know God does not exist (or, his existence can’t be “proven”), what is this object?”

Faith has evidences, some of which are physical or historical or evidentiary; but most of faith is more like hearing a poem by a loved one, and recognizing a voice; or trusting in what has been given and revealed, as we trust a parent, or a husband or wife, or a best friend. Actually relying on a power and love and goodness greater than our own. This wrong-headed bullying know-it-all version of Science™ can’t even prove that I love my wife, or what goods and blessings will come out of the fruit of our love. It was never meant to be a complete and exclusive from of knowing and truth.. that’s a flawed philosophical system built over and above the scientific method.

The atheists claim too much, and power over what they cannot know or disprove, as a form of man being god to himself. You know, like the 20th century: cultured Teutonic ubermensch listening to Mozart while the smoke rises outside from the death-ovens. Because, Science™.

Whoa, There, Dawkins…

After all, if I conclude that all things must be measured by toboggans, that does leave out all the mystery of life, and most of the ordinary human and commonsensical and normal things of life. All you end up with is toboggans, and toboggan-experts trying to tell everybody else how to live, what to think, and what the “Truth” is.

Toboggans!™ ~

A Special Surprise

ZombieSign2

~ WITH THE SEEMING re-rise of The Walking Dead Season 4 (SPOILERS!)from the doldrums and whatever that mess was was Season 3, it looks like our pop-culture love of zombies isn’t entirely dead yet. As I’ve noted before, I find the whole thing very cool, interesting, and insightful. There’s a reason why the living dead bother and interest us more these days, than–say– giant gorillas, radioactive lizards, aliens, and the various fads and fashions (which have come and gone and come back) of scary stuff on the big and little screen.

Zombies have a relevance to each of us whether we watch the screens or read the books or not.

The spiritual season of Lent for Zombies. Actually, it’s only for zombies, as it were. How you doing, spiritually-wise? Need a little top up to your basic innate goodness? The Bible is having none of that. In Ezekiel, the prophet has a vision of God’s people, Israel– a valley filled with skeletons, bleaching in the desert sun. Deader than a dead man from Deadville.

Well now, there's your problem right there....

Well now, there’s your problem right there….

That is God’s diagnosis of us: we’re dead.

“‘Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.’  Therefore [God tells Ezekiel] prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: O my people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel.  Then you, my people, will know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves and bring you up from them.  I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the LORD have spoken, and I have done it, declares the LORD.’ ” [Ezekiel 37]

Our life flits by, and what wasn’t isn’t again pretty darned fast. Ask anybody over 20– time speeds up as you age. A car-trip that took 4,235 years when you are 8 and whining “Are we there, yet?”, zips by like nothing when you are 38. Yet even within that fleeting life, we are spiritually dead. Not in need of a little spit & polish, a little sprucing up– we’re zombies. Now, there are two kinds of zombies– those who know it, and those who don’t.

The spiritual fact is that Christ Jesus did not come to make good men even gooder, but to make rotting zombies truly alive again: to bring us out of our spiritual and moral and actual graves, alive & made new. To take dead men and women and resurrect them inwardly now, and physically after death. He became one of us, that we might become like him: eternally alive, not the living dead. A veritable zombie unpocalypse!

The risen Jesus is not a zombie: dead AND alive at one and the same time (sorry, snarky clever atheists and your ‘Zombie Jesus‘ meme)– that is a contradiction in terms, like a square circle, or any other form of words sounding possible simply because we can say it. He was dead, and now is alive forevermore. This is either the biggest hope for our dead race ever, or we are lost in in our sins and evil, and without hope, meaning, purpose, and goodness. Zombies.

Nah.. I’m Good

If you proudly think that you’re good enough on your own, thank you very much, then you’ve not really grasped the nature of the problem, or the cure. Imagine your deathbed, however many years hence. That’s only a few spins of the earth away.. the number hardly matters.

We comfortable, safe, healthy moderns are much aggrieved over “The Problem Of Suffering”. God– like a celestial politician, should get his big government out there to cure all problems, ills, and pains. You know, because that’s worked so well in our Western societies, now careening over a cliff of debt and birth-dearth from comfy people many of whom can’t even be bothered to make babies to replace themselves, or rouse themselves from an Angry Birds coma to fight against enemies inside and outside their society who seek to destroy it in the name of a blood-drinking moon-god, or statist utopia and free cellphones and condoms for all. Sounds like we’re zombies.

To those who know themselves dead, the death of death itself is good news. The cure of our zombie plague that we become alive again, and forever, if we receive the undying life our friend Jesus offers to us– that’s big. Heaven big. All of time & space big. Redeeming our longings and joys and memories and sins and failings and death big.

Are you dead? ~

Survivor: Ottawa

“Canadians are going into the Easter weekend tomorrow with a few truths to consider. First and foremost, Stephen Harper will be the next prime minister. Second, if Michael Ignatieff cannot be counted on to stop Stephen Harper from forming a majority, left-leaning Canadians will look to the much more likeable and ideological Jack Layton to oppose Mr. Harper in the 41st parliament. Third, Canadians will consider a coalition government to be explicitly on the table as Layton may be in an increased position of strength to negotiate its outcome.”

~ ITEM: What next? Over-the-counter roofies?

~ PROGRESSIVES IMAGINE they can make people good, and that whatever they come up with, will take effect in the world without negative consequences, or a fallen human nature. As soon as I heard about the whole ‘over the counter chemical death pill thing, I thought of how men might abuse such things against wives, girlfriends, and even hook-ups (sneak a few into a drink, and there you are!.. or as some blog-wag put it: “Do her. Dose her. Ditch her.”). Then there’s the violation of pharmacist’s consciences. Let’s not forget BigPharm profits. Liberation, thy name is profit & convenience. And the progressive project of further turning men and women, and holy mystery, into nothing special, and possible or actual children into guilty intruders, to be judged and executed. ~

~ MARK STEYN SIGNED AND sent along to Castle Binks a copy of his new tome: Lights Out: Islam, free speech, and the twilight of the west. Huzzah! Eager reading ensues. It’s a powerful & sturdy 322 page revisit of the Elmasry-Free Speech wars, and a welcome collection of Mark’s best columns on a militant Islam versus a timid multiculti West, with our ‘eyes wide shut’ elites. He’s been and remains a warrior for all of us– buy & read and pass on this book to those who need to wake up before it’s too late.

Steyn’s open secret is his wit & turn of phrase, taking difficult or distressing matters and laying them out simply and engagingly. Like an artist, Mark Steyn depicts and delights, but never falls into the easy temptation of ranting. He reminds this reader of a bewigged character, (perhaps from the Nelsonian navy), saying of his opponents “I say, those beggars seem to be trying to kills us. What rotters. Shall we have at them?” The rollicking results always satisfy.

~ ITEM: We’re in the fast lane to polygamy

~ ITEM: Extramarital sex wrong?

~ ITEM– Romania Weighs Decriminalizing Consensual Incest

~ WHILE THE SLIPPERY-SLOPE argument is sometimes wrong in particular, it’s often right in general. The revolutionaries who seek to “break on through to the other side” of every received good custom and practice in the interests of their own programme like to pooh-pooh the slippery slope precisely because it makes people look to the past and present and future aspects of social engineering– “that has led to this and could well lead to that”. No busy-body likes to have the entire scheme exposed at once, and so those who warn of pesky logical consequences are smeared as extremists and nay-sayers or changeophobes. Logic? Precedent? Ancient custom and law? BIGOT!

So in the last semi-public and highly stage-managed Canucki debate over so-called same-sex marriage, those who warned that– logically– the union of one adult with another might well lead to calls for other arrangements: one adult with several others; one relative with another; whatever someone might desire. Polygamy; polygyny; incest; or– in the acceptable suburban fashion, serial monogamy via easy divorce. Monogamy is the target, and lots of people are shooting at it.

Pascha/ Easter Day

12-04-2009-6-51-05-pm1

….Christ is Risen, and you, o death, are annihilated!
Christ is Risen, and the evil ones are cast down!
Christ is Risen, and the angels rejoice!
Christ is Risen, and life is liberated!
Christ is Risen, and the tomb is emptied of its dead;
for Christ having risen from the dead,
is become the first-fruits of those who have fallen asleep.

To Him be Glory and Power forever and ever. Amen!

~ St. John Chrysostom, Sermon For Pascha;
Constantinople (AD 400)

Some readings for Easter, plus art and more.

A blessed Eastertide to all Christians around the world this day– and our Eastern Orthodox brethren, whenever their Pascha is this year– may the joy and victory of the Risen Christ be yours this and every day. As I said over here a while back,

“Jesus comes to restore the image of God in man; to show us what a true man, a full humanity is like; and by his grace to begin that transformation in us. On the cross he offers forth his own life, to straighten our bentness, and to remake us into his better image, our truest selves. This is, he tells us, the purpose of his coming (St. John, 6:38-40): “And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

May we who believe fight this good fight for our day and time, and for the good of all; may those who are uncertain or disbelieve yet act as if they do, so we may do good together, and seek a better world than Utopia or HRC or the earthly-minded dare hope for or imagine. We may suffer and struggle, but the victory has been won: the very ground of reality is eternal victory won for us by God in Christ.

Christos Aneste! Alethos Aneste!

Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!

~ ON UGLY HYMNS.. I cordially hate virtually all cheerful modern happy-clappy church music. It’s been 45 years of this stuff, and whilst Boomers may still be addicted and amused by it, the culture moved on long ago. Looong, looooong ago. The promised influx of yoot and such never really happened– and now, I suspect such past stale-dated cotton-candy is keeping a lot of people away, and convinced that Christianity is brain-damaged, and a millimetre deep. It won’t do: and if made to do, it won’t do very well. It’s all a substitute for the complete range of thought and feeling and worship in older hymns, and in classical church music.

Happy clappy? Been there, done that, endured the Smiling Guitar People, and the same “new” hymn for the thousandth time. Gack.

I feel much the same about the endless string of utopianisms since the French Revolution. The body count.. the empty promises.. the follow-the-leader.. the stupid.. the injustice and fanaticism.. over and over, like a madness. Presently it’s ObaMania; Eutopia; UN 1-Worldism; Jihadistry; and whatever secret stuff we don’t know about. Tomorrow? New label and details, same dehumanizing utopianism.

What’s UtopiProgism replacing? The same thing goofy church muzak is: classical Christianity, and the civilization it created and sustained.

The modern alternative to the new life and transformation bursting from the broken tomb and shining from the risen Jesus Christ is not another religion, but the unfaith of a utopia, with Glorious Leader, the holy message, and the war on the infidels– or a watered-down version of the same, built of fragments of what went before. Barbara Hall and Nancy Pelosi and Tony Blair and Al Qaeda leaders all dream of a better world, just within reach if only their agenda can go uber alles enough.

The choice has been pretty clear for the last 100 years in particular, if anyone was still enamoured of revolution and heaven on earth. History keeps repeating itself because we have to put to death our hope for a heaven without God, and a salvation without death and rising to a new way. The Communists and Nazis at least were clear on the matter: after capturing schools, youth, the military & police, they knew the only serious remaining competition to their regimes and claims were serious Christians: witness the clergy and believers in prison in North Korea, and China; the 100 000 slain clergy of the Soviet Era; the special clergy-concentration camp; and don’t forget the carefully planned Second Hitlerite ‘Final Solution’, for the churches, clergy, and uppity parishioners in the new German Empire.

The history of the modern world– even the HRC wars– are all about the longing for utopia versus the true, higher, and abiding kingdom that transforms the earth. In that choice hands our civilizational and individual future. Or as Mark Shea puts it,

“God is the only thing that guarantees that we have any rights at all. It is only God, as revealed in Scripture, who is the source of our rights. If rights are merely a fiction granted by the state, or another way of saying “Whatever the strong will” then nobody, including gays, has any rights at all. A society steeped in the Christian tradition can hold the notion of inherent human rights to be self-evident. But no other. Because, empirically speaking, there is nothing whatsoever self-evident about equal rights — or about rights at all. Only a society in which it is taken for granted that man is in the image and likeness of God can believe that, being such, he possessed certain God-given rights.”

Unfortunately, over the last century, America—and even more Western Europe—has increasingly shifted its focus from political liberty to social engineering, from equal protection before the law to sameness mandated by law, from equality to egalitarianism. The focus today is not on equal creation but on creating equality.”

Jihad

“Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step.”
