A vignette of sorts.
A thought to ponder.
There is evidence that the age of a corrupted intellectualism is coming to its natural end. It had a good run, lasting from the mid-17th century to the dwindling present. It has depleted and burned itself out by its demand to be worshiped. It has become a false religion, making itself just another false god. In demanding an end to religious truth, the hubris of its own lies are causing it to self-destruct. Much like the serpent that swallowed itself by catching its own tail. This particular “intellectualism” is devouring itself in believing lies in its exclusive constructs.
At the risk of yet another metaphor, there is also the destructive vision of a scorpion, in its death throes, lashing out with its poisonous stinger in many directions. With the intent of doing as much harm as possible before its final demise. In other words, the New Dark Ages under faux intellectualism will not go “quietly into that dark night.”
However, it will be its own false religion that will be the coup de grâce. And quietly or no, it will go. It will go into that dark night of whose garment it now wraps itself.
I invite you to read once again Psalm 2 as one representative witness, among the plethora of witnesses throughout the proven truth of history recorded in the Bible. That mankind’s schemes and devices plans, and self-worship always have, and will presently, end. And end badly for all who ascribe to that society of self-important vanity-cum-hubris.
“Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;
wisdom and power are his.
21 He changes times and seasons;
he deposes kings and raises up others.
He gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to the discerning.
22 He reveals deep and hidden things;
he knows what lies in darkness,
and light dwells with him.”
