Defining Deviancy Down: A Culture Going Insane

People have lost their minds. It didn’t happen overnight. It’s taken some time to rid the universe of a Creator who endows us with certain inalienable rights and who is also the “Supreme Judge of the world,” as the Declaration of Independence puts it.

You can’t have one without the other. You can’t claim to have inherent rights without a creator if you are the long extension of a series of cosmic accidents that originated from a long-ago primordial soup of happenstance chemicals. Daniel C. Dennett’s claim that we have gone from “Bacteria to Bach” is one of the most unscientific and illogical claims ever to come from the non-mind of a scientist. You see, we don’t have minds. We are matter-only meat machines. There is no mind, just a random series of electrical charges popping off here and there amongst the gray matter of the brain.

As a result, Cole Porter was right: “Anything Goes.”

If we all got here by the survival of the fittest, some bacteria battling and defeating other bacteria in the “struggle for life,” as Charles Darwin put it, then there can’t be any moral outrage for the latest “murders” in Manchester, England. They can’t be called murders because the struggle for life and dominance is still going on. In Dennett’s world, at death, the victims and the perpetrators meet the same end. All they are is “dust in the wind.”

Sexual politics is all the rage. There are no long just “male and female” (1:27). That was a God-thing, and the old God is out. There are new gods, and beware if you offend them by claiming that binary is the only “ary” there is. But in the world where there is no God, everything must be redefined. Where there were just two, now there are more than 50 and counting gender expressions. Take your pick. You are just as much a god as any of the other self-proclaimed gods…
