For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.” (1 Corinthians 1:19 NIV)

Some say the greatest threat to humankind is ignorance. I’m not so sure. There are some highly-educated, super-intelligent individuals out there we should be real concerned about. Intelligent or not, the lie is no respecter of persons. Among the elite or among the uneducated poor, wherever falsehood finds a home, destruction will follow.

Satan is the father of all lies, so the Lord has declared war on deceit’s perpetrators. He will destroy the wisdom of the wise. He will frustrate the intelligence of the intelligent.

The recent U.S. headline read: “Scientists take to the streets to defend research.” What was this all about? Who is against scientists doing research? Digging into the report, it seems “scientist” is the title belonging to “Climate Change Advocates.” (Remember when Climate Change used to be Global Warming?) So scientists and concerned friends of the environment (like scientists, another warm and fuzzy name) were raging against the threat of funding cuts and the problem-causing Climate Change Deniers (a not so warm and fuzzy name).

In most cases, the Climate Change Deniers are scientists also, only their research shows the “good” scientists are committing fraud.  These “bad deniers” who hate science (boo, hiss) want to reduce tax-payer funding for the Climate Change scientist’s intelligent and wise research. The bottom-line is that there are rumors the evil President Trump (not warm and fuzzy) is considering shutting off the spigot of federal money that for decades has flowed non-stop to universities and scientists. That’s what made them mad enough to spend their Saturday chanting slogans and protesting.

In Brian Sussman’s monumental, “Climategate: A Veteran Meteorologist Exposes the Global Warming Scam” (WND Books), researchers for truth are introduced to the dark side of science. He describes the disaster scenario that “carbon emissions generated by mankind are ruining the planet” started as an attack by socialists and Communists on Western society.  His documented investigation reveals “the motives, practices, and ultimate agenda of these radical agents of change” calling it a “web of deceit being sold as concern for the environment.”

America and the world’s challenge is how, after decades of opportunity to weave an elaborate tale, do we extricate ourselves? It is not that we are ignorant and unschooled about the dangers to the polar bears, it is how much propaganda have we swallowed? Though nearly twenty trillion in debt, why not continue to support junk science, even though, on the side, researchers are pocketing $ billions on their scam?

There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers. (Prov. 6:16-19 NIV)
