Harvard Prof. Blames Christianity’s ‘Malignant’
Belief in Afterlife for Lockdown Protests

Original Article

Posted By: Zarin, 5/24/2020 12:39:38 PM

Harvard psychology professor Steven Pinker said Thursday that the push for reopening society from lockdowns comes from Christianity’s “malignant delusion” of belief in an afterlife. Atheists who believe in this life alone are more concerned with health and safety, Professor Pinker suggested in a Tweet, while Christians tend to devalue “actual lives” and live a riskier existence. Belief in an afterlife is a malignant delusion, since it devalues actual lives and discourages action that would make them longer, safer, and happier. Exhibit A: What’s really behind Republicans wanting a swift reopening? Evangelicals. https://t.co/ppo2bwiVGn — Steven Pinker (@sapinker) May 21, 2020

Comments:

This remark is reprehensible. I have heard Steven Pinker talk with Jordan Peterson. He seemed to make some sense in other lectures and I truly respected his knowledge & some of his viewpoints. However this last thing shows his prejudice against anybody who believes in God & the continues life of the soul.

belief in an afterlife is a malignant delusion, says the psychologist. But I would bet he finds Dr. Rachel Levine to be rational in Levine's belief that he, a man, is a woman. and Levine taught psychiatry at Penn State's Medical School. Levine is Pa Health Commissioner.

Googling Pinker pics, I see a guy who seems to think a lot of himself, a career long image cultivated in mirrors everywhere. I suspect he sees the center of the universe. Maybe my read is wrong, I doubt it.

There's a reason so many hospitals are named after saints, which is that health care is a thing the Church did. And does. Handed it over as something the unbelievers supposedly could do, which didn't work out all that well since they want to Guide Demography and keep having thoughtful nuanced crises over whether it is really a good idea to take care of the sick or not.

As Einstein said, there are only two ways to live your life. One is as if there are no miracles. The other is as if everything is a miracle. I've experienced a miracle so according to Einstein that makes everything a miracle. I feel sorry for Mr. Pinker, he lives so much in his head that he can't experience the miracle of creation and how it echoes in everything including Mr. Pinker.

Oh where to start. Just look around and one realizes that humanity, life, the world, and the universe are not a product on random chance. There is a design which means there is a designer, a God. Life without God or an afterlife gets rather meaningless. After all, what would be the point of existence? A person that believes in God realizes their life has meaning. Atheists value life more than people religious people? Wouldn't bet on that. How many tyrants have been atheists throughout history? Hitler and Stalin come to mind. A person that thinks life is pointless has no values. Who fears death more? A person that believes in God and an afterlife or a person that believes everything ends at death? Most likely, a Godless person fears death more.

When I was working as a psychiatric nurse, my unit manager said there is a grain of truth in someone's delusion. Indeed, there is a grain of truth in PINKER'S delusion that that we are much safer with lockdowns. But unfortunately, his delusion is causing increased suicides, increased drug use, poverty, mass unemployment, etc. Pinker's fantasies, IMHO, disqualify him from teaching college or being anywhere near the field of mental health. And his being at Harvard means the inmates are running the asylum.

I long ago came to believe that the reason that all atheists are angry bitter people is that they think they have nothing to look forward to. They believe that this life is all they’re going to get and they aren’t happy or satisfied with their lives. I’ve had miscarriages and I look forward to the afterlife where I will finally get to meet those children.

So, he is saying it is better to live in poverty, depression, without freedom and possibly in total misery rather than to take a small risk and live life to the fullest?? Nobody is rushing to die. Not even devout believers in an afterlife. I guess this why so many atheists support tyranny and socialism. They like being told how to live and staying in misery, as long as they feel they can have a little safety. So, what'll it be, prof? Maybe live to 98 but possibly as a poor slave who lost everything you worked for while staying shut in your home with nothing to do? Or possibly live to 50, 60, 70, or possibly even 98 and have a comfortable, happy life you created on your own?

Anthony Fauci on Wednesday said there's no evidence that shows the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine is effective at treating COVID-19. "Clearly the scientific data is really quite evident now about the lack of efficacy for it," Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease doctor, said during a CNN interview. Fauci said evidence also shows the likelihood that the drug can cause severe irregular heart rhythms. "There was suspicion of that for a while, but as data comes in, it becomes more clear," Fauci said. The pronouncements mark Fauci's strongest warnings yet against the drug and puts him at odds with President Trump, who has embraced the drug as a "game changer" and a "miracle."

"The control over both the content and editorial control have only strengthened over the course of Xi Jinping's term in power," said one official.

Joe Biden said Monday that police -- if facing a threat from a person with "a knife or something" -- should be trained to “shoot ‘em in the leg instead of the heart,” amid five straight days of protest following the death of George Floyd. “Instead of standing there and teaching a cop when there’s an unarmed person coming at ‘em with a knife or something, shoot ‘em in the leg instead of in the heart,” Biden said in an address to black community leaders in Wilmington, Del. “There are a lot of things that can change,” Biden said, regarding police training.

Will George W. Bush endorse Joe Biden? Congressional Republicans can’t even stand up to rebuke President Trump for falsely accusing a cable news host of murder — despite pleas to stop from the family of the woman, who died of natural causes back in 2001. But imagine if former President Bush, as Trump’s most recent Republican predecessor, backed a Democrat. Bush’s voice has the singular power to reach moderate Republicans and Republican-leaning independent voters, freeing them to walk away from the Party of Trump.

The son of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison tweeted on Sunday that he is declaring his support for Antifa after President Trump said that his administration would be declaring it a "Terrorist Organization." Jeremiah Ellison, who is a member of the Minneapolis City Council, noted in the tweet that he believes "white power" terrorists are actually the ones engaging in the looting, arson and other riot activities as violent sects hijack some of the protests against racial inequality and police brutality in the wake of the death of George Floyd last Monday. "I hereby declare, officially, my support for ANTIFA," Ellison said.

When looters threatened to bring their mayhem and destruction from the city of Chicago to my suburb on Sunday, our town’s leadership acted quickly. Snow plows were used to block access to the major shopping mall and big-box outlets; police SUVs and undercover cars patrolled heavily-traveled streets carrying cops with riot gear. Stores and restaurants, which had just reopened on Friday after a nearly three-month shutdown, closed again. Suspicious cars congregating in vacant parking lots adjacent to strip malls were hustled away.Our police chief—Tim McCarthy, the secret service agent who took a bullet for Ronald Reagan in 1981 and saved the president’s life—could be heard
