'Be Gone, Satan!'

The Singularity by Ray Kurzweil

Absolution: The Singularity

by Craige McMillan
"Be Gone, Satan!" Those were the last words spoken by Father Jacques Hamel, the elderly Catholic priest who had his throat slit by two Islamic terrorists, while he was conducting mass in his church, in Saint-Etienne-du Rouvray, northern France.

Unlike the resuscitated Kum Be Yah movement in so many churches in America, Father Hamel clearly knew with whom he was dealing. Would that the West's political leadership might know as well.

At Father Hamel's funeral service, Archbishop Dominique Lebrun said:

"Evil is a mystery that reaches summits of horror beyond what is human…You who are tormented by diabolical violence, you who are drawn to kill by a demonic, murderous madness, pray to God to free you from the devil's grip. We pray for you, we pray to Jesus who healed all those who were under the power of evil."

Despite living in the midst of a bloody cesspool of contemporary evil, the modern world seems incapable of understanding what evil is. Jesus said that we should judge a tree by the fruit that it bears. Are the global-elitists running the West aground onto the ash heap of history really incapable of such discernment?

Or is something else at work? Do the elitists and technology moguls know perfectly well with whom they are dealing? Have they simply made the calculated decision that where Satan failed in his overthrow of God, they will succeed, because of their technological prowess? Is that why they have in their disbelief bound themselves together against the Creator with humanity's eternal enemy?

The Natural vs Supernatural World

It is difficult for those in the West to comprehend—let alone accept—the existence of the supernatural realm. This is true in large part because they simply refuse to believe that the supernatural exists. In their minds, a supernatural event is merely a natural event not yet understood. This gives Satan unparalleled access to their thought processes.

God, on the other hand, is entirely supernatural. That's his world. It includes the natural world (because he created it). When God acts supernaturally within the natural world, we call it a miracle. He calls it business as usual. The natural world calls a miracle impossible. See the disconnect?

It's not that the global-elitists are Satanists; they simply don't believe that the supernatural exists. Biotechnology, silicon chips, artificial intelligence: These are to be humanity's new saviors. The man-machine merger. All engineered and controlled by themselves.

But is technology the answer? Can flawed human beings produce a flawless man-machine creature? One finally free of God? Absolution: The Singularity.
