Last week, Mike Lindell, also known as the “My Pillow Guy,” that you’ve probably seen on TV at some point, joined President Trump for one of the interminable daily coronavirus press briefings. During the briefing, it was announced that Lindell is retooling his pillow factories to begin churning out much-needed masks to protect Americans.
During his remarks, the Pillow Guy said that Americans needed to return to their Bibles, to get back into the Word, to pray and return to the founding faith that has sustained our nation for more than two centuries. Naturally, our atheist media went into sputtering fits over this. Such heresy! Burn him!
After all, we are now living under the scientific dictatorship that the atheists of the world have been dreaming about for 150 years. The atheist philosophers who long ago replaced the God of the Bible with Science (with a capital ‘S’) have been telling us since the 1800s that Science would allow us to do away with pesky nuisances such as democracy, voting and individual rights. In return for sacrificing those quaint notions (and scrubbing God and His followers completely from the earth), the result would be an end to hunger and strife, wars, disease and other problems.
There simply will not be problems, because Science and the priesthood of benevolent science rulers will fix everything for you.
A few decades ago, Science announced that the sun was going to “burn out” in approximately four billion years. All life on planet earth would cease to exist when that happened. Not to worry, though. If we simply put the Scientists in charge of everything, they would build a new sun and hang it in low earth orbit to continue sustaining life on Earth. Unimpressed non-scientists failed to comply with this strange new dictate from the world of Science.
That was a real discussion that the scientific community tried to have with the rest of us. When that didn’t work, they decided to shorten their timeline in the 1970s. Science announced that Ice Ages which cover the globe in snow and ice happen every 13,000 years.
And did you know how many years ago the last Ice Age was? 12,999 years ago! Better put the scientists in charge so they can design the underground pods we’ll need to live in!
And more recently, of course, you’ve probably heard that Science has determined that we’re all going to die from the weather in 10, 11 or 12 years, depending on which former bartender or former vice president you ask. If we just quit beating around the bush, abolish the Constitution and put Science in charge (which is always run by the United Nations for some reason), Science will cure us.
How is the rule of dictatorial scientists working out for everyone, by the way, now that we are two weeks into this experiment? Is your life better for having scientists and more specifically, epidemiologists, in charge of the US government and economy?
When the coronavirus outbreak began in America, we were hearing projections from Science that 11 million Americans would die, and that our entire health care system would collapse because 30 million Americans would need emergency ICU beds. If you have a heart attack or a stroke, you’ll just have to die because all the beds will be taken up. These projections were based on the latest computer modeling from Science.
Since then, the models have revised the numbers continuously downward, to 6 million dead, then 2 million, and so on. I think we’re down to somewhere between 100,000 and 200,000 now. And Science assures us that the number of casualties will only be that low if we continue following the instructions of Science, by destroying the American economy. The Science has been continuously wrong, and yet the shutdowns keep getting extended and Scientists are calling for bigger and more extensive shutdowns.
Like many scientists, these epidemiologists running the country are probably good at their individual areas of focus. But what they don’t seem to see or understand is that the casualty numbers are going to be off the charts – not just for America, but for the rest of the world – if our supply chains are further disrupted. Dairy farms in America are already dumping milk out on the ground because the demand for cheese has plummeted… because all the restaurants are shut down.
Who cares about a virus if we all have to go to the zoo with our AR-15s to try to get dinner for our kids? None of the secular scientists on the TV – who have remarkable job security right now– seem to understand the very real harm they’re doing to millions of Americans by urging government-mandated shutdowns of the economy.
Do you realize what the Bible says about potentially fatal pandemics? Isolate the sick people, take care of them and let everyone else go about life as usual. That used to be how we did things in America, before we decided to let atheist Scientists run our lives. I’ve had just about enough of following the advice of Science. I think the My Pillow Guy’s advice sounds much more sane.
