Silver Lining

Looking at the following charts in light of salvation history, it's hard not to see a divine hand in the West's onrushing demographic winter.

Theistic Orientation 1

Theistic Orientation 2

Population Projections

Not only are atheists already a tiny minority, their ranks overwhelmingly consist of white men, whose numbers are steadily dwindling relative to the overall population.

If there's any consolation to be found in the browning of America, it's that it's also the de-atheisting of America. And our smrt atheist friends have no one but themselves to blame:

Votes by Religious Affiliation

It's an old story. A people turn their backs on God, and He raises up their enemies to chastise them.

Europeans conquered Aztecs who performed industrial-scale human sacrifice; now the tables have turned as Europeans who perform industrial-scale human sacrifice are conquered by Aztecs.

I'm sure the fedora tippers will have great success plying the new majority with flying spaghetti monster memes.

Then again, they wouldn't have to if Christians weren't the better Darwinists.

  1. The most vocal and brash atheists I've ever met were also the whitest people I've ever come across. It looks as if the statistics bear that out.

    What is it about the culture that aims it so heavily towards non-belief that other races are so quick to dismiss?

    I would think atheists would question this a bit more since they are supposedly such great skeptics.

    1. There's something to be said for the perspective and humility that comes with being average and knowing you're not the smartest person in the room. I know some very smart people. One or two of them also morons. Others are very smart, have lots of good ideas, and have done work that has literally changed how we use computers, but still manage to be thundering dunces in matters of faith and transcendent truth.

    2. While IQ is useful for measuring the effects of certain types of reasoning ability, it's a category error to say it measures intelligence, which is immaterial and non-quantifiable.

    3. Thank you for pointing that out. It occurs to me that while treating IQ as a measure of or proxy for intelligence is a mistake, it cannot have been an accident that we've been taught to make it.

      It's not a direct measure of intelligence, although it is a fairly direct measure of some aspect of intelligence. Think of it like height being an aspect of physical "size". Sure there's the occasional skeletor (much like the occasional math prodigy that can't master the ABC's or tie his shoes), but on balance the average 6'4" man is significantly heavier than a 6'0" one.

      But it bares repeating, intellect is not synonymous with wisdom, and the "intelligent" man is no more "logical" than anyone else, though he has greater powers of rationalization. The man of above average intelligence must not necessarily use his intellect more "logically" than the man of above average strength must use his muscles more "logically" than anyone else.

  2. Not all theisms are equal:

    Black women have great faith in God, but they have a twisted understanding of His role. They do not pray for strength or courage. They pray for results: the satisfaction of immediate needs. One of my clients was a black woman who prayed in a circle with her accomplices for God’s protection from the police before they would set out to commit a robbery.

    The mothers and grandmothers pray in the hallways–not for justice, but for acquittal. When I explain that the evidence that their beloved child murdered the shop keeper is overwhelming, and that he should accept the very fair plea bargain I have negotiated, they will tell me that he is going to trial and will “ride with the Lord.” They tell me they speak to God every day and He assures them that the young man will be acquitted.

  3. Yeah, darwinism is my simplest given reason to belief in God.

    1. Nature selects against atheists.

    2. The Amish, Mennonites, Mormons, and other "traddy" groups are poised to be the dominant European communities in North America next century. Meanwhile, the architects of the technocratic empire are committing genetic seppuku.

      I can also confirm that mentioning the "silver lining" to Death Cultists triggers them big time. "Enjoy the decadence while it lasts because it's going away forever!"

    3. I enjoy rubbing Darwinism in atheist faces when they comment on the number of children I have.

      That said, I’ve begun to read St Max Kolbe’s works on anti-evolution. How has his work not been promoted more? All in the name of accommodating and surrendering to Modernism I guess.

    5. Here in the States, you can only get it second-hand. I've heard some of his arguments through the works of Fr. Wolfe, FSSP, Fr. Ripperger and some of the speakers from the Kolbe Center. St. Max knew the history of the field, of Darwin, and knew the scientific arguments and data (at the time) in favor and against TENS. The theory stands on fundamental premises that Kolbe questions the tenability of said premises...making one such as myself realize that much of what I "know" about current science is what others have told me, as I've not read study findings for myself nor have I conducted any research or experiments. It then quickly becomes apparent that what we are taught is deliberately curated to present a narrative, whereas a fair reading of the data does not offer such a definitive conclusion in favor or TENS.

  4. Humans are hard wired to believe in a higher power. Even atheists who claim to not believe in anything tend to believe in something. Whether it's a belief in science, socialism, or the infallibility of Rachel Maddow, everyone believes in something.

    That being the case, there must be some evolutionary advantage to believing. Which makes no sense if such a higher power doesn't exist. Therefore, evolutionary science at least suggests He does.

    As to the question at hand, yes the future belongs to those who show up.
