Noah’s Ark has long been one of the Biblical stories that most intrigue me. What could be better than a story about a righteous man making wise provision for himself and his family (and as many as would join them) in the face of a critical disaster? Noah was a friend of God and a friend of God’s creation in whom resides the seed from which a new civilization must grow because the present one had become so vile that it had to be done away with. It’s really one of the prime stories. Many cultures all over the globe — cultures which have no known connection with the Bible — have the essentially the same story with the same key elements: a small core of people, a large boat, a great flood, the re-establishment of humankind after a catastrophic purge by water.
I raise my kids to be the kind of persons that, if necessary, humanity could be re-established from. I think this is actually one of the truest measures by which to measure a person’s achievement in life and the value that their life brings to others. If the electrical power went out for forever, would John Doe be a hopeless sissy, begging those around him for food, water, and mercy, eating grass and cowering in the shadows, struggling to keep a step ahead of death? Or instead, would John Doe be a real man who can provide not only food, water, and protection for himself and his family, but also understand the essentials of justice, relationships, society, his traditional heritage, culture, and the spiritual Truth so as to be able to bring along the order — the beauty — of true civilization wheresoever he goes? This was Noah. Noah was a complete man. That’s why I love Noah. But this was also Columbus. This was also the pioneers of the American West. In fact, most pre-industrial people could do this to some degree. That is what machines took from us.
Don’t be one of these fags, one of these omega “humans”, that only know how to toil away in some soulless cubicle-hive in order to pay rent and purchase prole feed. It is a failure of a life. All life-forms as found in nature, are, even in their individual forms, both the children and progenitors of their race. They inherit wholeness from their forbears and they also bestow wholeness on their descendants. Humans are the cultural animal. As such, the true fitness of any human being is measured by not only his real physical viability, but also his real ability to receive, guard, and pass down the cultural legacy.
Industrialism, in a remarkably short, time has drastically reduced the percentage of humanity that could keep from dying if the power ever went out long-term. What’s more, it has drastically reduced the feeling that any one person has that they themselves are truly a critical link in a chain that stretches from past generations to future generations. Modernity effectively tells people: “Don’t be a chain-link. Disengage from the past. The past only holds the world back. The generations of your ancestors were backward, unenlightened, bigoted, superstitious, brutish, irrational. Instead of being such a link as they all were, become a cog in this machine, this glorious machine that stands outside of all previous times and regimes.”
That’s a really pathetic state of affairs: most people can only live if they become cogs in the machine. There is nothing glorious in this at all. Such a “civilization” is a mockery of humanity and a mockery of real civilization. Most of us have effectively already become “pets”. It is not a future thing, as believed by freemason Steve Wozniak. Of course, it can and will get worse. Each year that the industrial system continues is one increment more of sinking into this depravity, one more year of the increasing effacement of the dignity of man.
But I am fully convinced that this mockery will not persist much longer.
For one, God will not let it. It is true that God gives humanity a very great deal of space in which to exercise the freedom of will, but we also see that there are limits. There are times when the compassion of God sees fit to intervene — much like a human father lets his children run around and scrape and bruise themselves but steps in when serious injury threatens; for example, when a toddler is wandering to the edge of a cliff. If the kid falls off the cliff and splatters on the rocky beach hundreds of feet below, it is pointless to talk about the need for children to learn from scrapes and bruises. A dead kid has nothing to learn.
In a very similar manner, God, however much He may promote our independently chosen embrace of truth through free experimentation, nonetheless gets absolutely nothing out of letting us jump off the cliff. And it is something He wont stand for. And what is the moral cliff? The moral cliff is not simply a high incidence of people doing evil and being degenerate. The moral cliff is when the ability to recognize the categorical difference between Holy Truth and error is effectively obliterated from the mind of man. When man abandons, or otherwise loses, his agency, that is when it is finished. This is borne out by several considerations of Scripture:
“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.” (Genesis 6)
Genesis 6 was a situation in which moral agency was effectively lost. Thus, game over.
“And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.” (Genesis 10)
Genesis 10 was a situation in which moral agency was just about lost. Thus, God stepped in to save the kid from falling off the cliff. Admittedly, this example does not jump out of the text as much for the casual reader of the Bible, since some knowledge of the totalitarian motives of Nimrod, the master of the construction of the tower, ought to be known beforehand in order to appreciate it.
“Then said the LORD unto me, What seest thou, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil. Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good . . . And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil; surely thus saith the LORD, So will I . . . send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among them, till they be consumed from off the land that I gave unto them and to their fathers.” (Jeremiah 24)
The figs had become so rotten that they could not even serve as food, that is, the Jews, represented by the figs, were so corrupted that the possibility of repentance did not exist. They had sunken so low as to have no agency. Thus, game over. God is not a libertarian. He lets people have freedom so they can grow from experience, so that they can form a relationship with their maker as truly independent agents, not so that they can just run off a cliff en masse. God never promised any sort of respect for libertine “rights”. Game over.
“And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils. And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. . . Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme, but he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation: Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.” (Mark 3)
Again, when you have messed up your whole moral frame of reference so badly that you think you are righteous by condemning and reviling actual righteousness, you have a destroyed moral agency and there is thus no way to help you. Game over.
We are fast approaching a scenario in which letting evil prevail as the basis of the exercise of human free will is moot. Before our eyes, a real-life hellscape is quickly materializing: the institutions of marriage and family have been practically abominated. The life of the unborn is abominated. An ever increasing body of the traditional concepts of right and wrong, of normal and abnormal, of beauty and ugliness, are abominated. Christ is criminalized and abominated while all manner of filth and degeneracy is afforded honor. Millions of decent young men cannot even find a woman who is not morally repugnant and with which to start a family. All of the pillars of the world are collapsing. The frame of moral reference is now smashed with a million axe blows. Already we see a terrible and rapid deterioration of human agency, moral and otherwise. What exercise of freedom of will can low- or non-agency humans even make? Obviously not much. (I develop this idea more here and here.)
If you don’t like how industrialism “liberated” women and pumped faggotry-inducing chemicals into out food and water supply, if you don’t like how un-human life has become, if you don’t like people glued to screens, if you don’t like trannies and other freaks running wild, I have good news: IT IS ALL COMING DOWN!
However, we will go through worse things yet. Once human gene-manipulation and brain-computer interface becomes more developed and public, we are going to feel nostalgia for the days when we simply had male freaks using girls’ bathrooms. It’s going to get really, really bad. We need to learn from Noah. In Noah’s Ark (II) I will share some insights.
“But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” (Matthew 24)
“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.” (Revelation 22)
