    I knew it was this way but now a term has been coined.
    Scientism.

      This article is spot on.  I have long said those adhering to these beliefs are the most religious folks I know, and increasingly becoming the most aggressive evangelists I've ever encountered.

      I think you may have to come to terms with the fact that there are two sides and one of those sides is content to live under the rule of a few tyrants. Those of us who are not will continue to fight back.

    I know right? Our nation is being overrun! Every Senator is a technocrat... Oh they're Christian, you say? Well the Preside- Chrisitan too? 60% Of Americans adhere to Protestant doctrine? And another 10% some other Christian beliefs? Christmas is a federal holiday? Every president to date has been Chrisitan? Churches outnumber courthouses? Outbumber laboratories?

    This is such bull, shut up; no one is taking over the Christiandom, whether you believe it or not.

      No one said anyone was taking over Christendom.
      Did you read the article? No?

        In other words, many of our politicians are surrendering themselves to scientism

        We can see the results: generations are taught that life began without God; that the use of fossil fuels is warming the earth; that homosexuality is genetic; that abortion is not really the taking of a life; that marriage is whatever we want it to be

        And, of course, scientism leads us to technocracy. "I dread government in the name of science," said Lewis. "That is how tyrannies come in." What a profound conclusion! How many of us have been duped in the name of "science?" How many of us cower and yield, because, well, if the "scientists" (and then the politicians) tell us so, then it must be so?

          Attack the messenger? I attacked this info, the mssage, not you. Unless you feel the website is the messanger, which i also did not attack, only, again, the information therein.

        Refer above, maybe we just drew different conclusions, but that seems to say "Politicians believe in science over everything else, or at least try and put sciency-stuff first"

          "They use science to confuse people, or try and use science where it shouldn't be, and this going against Chrisitan beleifs ( abortion, homosexuality, marriage)"

          It is not about true science.  It is about those spinning science to appear to support larger political agendas.  After years of indoctrination to believe anything that calls itself science is true, the hope is the populace will accept it outright, or at least with continued pressure and insistence, acquiesce.  So far they are having alarming success.

            No, no I agree with that, the link Fae put below was good, concise, it's the first one that I feel goes to say it's attacking religion and technocracy is coming, "Scientism says 'God is dead' get in line, teaches our children the unverse began without God" it mentions that scientism leads to technocracy, which is obvious that isn't true in America considering the percent of politicians that aren't scientist and don't uphold scientific doctrine above something else.That part isn't true, and it is what was implied. Technocracy is different that scientism, and while scientism is present, the lead up to technocracy is not.
