Nuggets from Occult Invasion—A Question of Morality |

Dave Hunt

Every kind of nature religion (whether called Satanism, Wicca, Hinduism, or whatever) is by very definition amoral. “Good” and “evil” do not apply to atoms or galaxies or natural forces such as gravity or electricity or psychic power. Morals imply responsibility to an ultimate authority—something which is entirely lacking in nature. No one can say that atomic power has authority, much less that it is a power “higher” than electricity.

Biblical supernaturalism contends that moral authority derives only from an intelligent personal Creator who exists outside of the universe He has made. Evolution deifies nature. Wolfgang Smith, physics and mathematics professor at Oregon State University, says “evolution has swept the world, not on the strength of its scientific merits, but precisely in its capacity as a Gnostic myth.”

Yet evolution reigns in the world of academia, giving scientific credence to naturalism. It says that nature is all there is; there is no transcendent God, no supernatural. But this mysterious force which is allegedly behind evolution is presumed to provide unlimited power to nature and to the human psyche. Human potential is alleged to be infinite; man is potentially a god. All of this in the same of science!
