I stumbled upon the most joyous piece of literature today.

Seven Men Who Rule The World From The Grave.

No, it’s not about zombie dictators. It’s about… well… I’ll let the back cover explain.

Though their bodies lie cold and dormant, the grave cannot contain the influence these seven men have had on today’s world. They continue to rule because they have altered the thinking of society. They generated philosophies that have been ardently grasped by masses of people but are erroneous and antiscriptural. Today these ideas pervade our schools, businesses, homes, even the church. As we continue to unknowingly subscribe to their philosophies we keep the grave open for Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Julius Wellhausen, John Dewey, Sigmund Freud, John Maynard Keynes, and Soren Kierkegaard. Dave Breese warns us of the dangers of believing unreservedly the ideas of these seven men. He also reminds us of the only man whose life and words we can trust completely – Jesus Christ.

If you’re not already convinced that you should go out an buy this exercise in (futilely) trying not to give up on humanity, let me provide you with some more nuggets of wisdom from the anti-learning fundamentalists:

For the atheist existentialists like Camus, Sartre, and others, existentialism is a denial of any consistant morality. Dress as you will, fornicate with whom you will, infect whom you will, wear clothes or go naked as you will.

Well, okay, if you insist!

The existentialists have done the same [lying], pandering to the lust of people, preaching to them the doctrine of fornication without tears.

But… it’s only good sex if someone’s crying by the end!

Existentialism produced the raging, resentful youth culture of the 1960’s. It gave us boys who look like girls, girls who like boys, and transvestites who look like neither. It gave us raving homosexuals who declared their activities existentially "OK"…

You keep saying that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. 

…and launched upon a society a salvo of infection that continues to explode.

So, in conclusion, Kierkegaard caused AIDS.

Oh, and I almost forgot:

Our world, refusing the great equation of John 3:16, may have to face the unstoppable devastation of E=MC^(2).

So, if you don’t believe in Jesus, gravity will getcha.


Really though… what else would you expect from a religion founded on the belief that the original and ultimate sin was seeking knowledge?
