There is a myth attached to what had become know as the “Copernican Revolution” (Nicolaus Copernicus 1473-1543)–it was all where man saw himself and how he was no longer the center of the universe and his earth no longer the center point around which all things revolved. This realization changed nothing in his focus of how man and his planet fit into the cosmos, cialis with nothing changing in his relationship to God. Man understanding of his position and the vastness of the universe, caries with God’s glory surrounding this concept and the coming attack had everything to do with man’s sinful nature and dualistic thinking——one path God’s Glory set by John Calvin and the Reformation the other the Enlightenment Thinkers—-Godless in their thinking both of the same centuries.
The damage to faith came not from the model as to what the universe was like but from the enlightenment and the different thinkers of that period, with their attack on Christianity. What the cosmos was or looked like after Copernicus in fact had expanded the glory of God. The reformers and men of faith saw the Copernican cosmos as a thing God created, all the while the enlightenment thinkers narrowed the cosmos to matter (the big bang) and reduced man to some one cell blob or monkey evolving into man. This had the affect of the remaking of man’s mind, who or were he came from, the changing of the reasoning process through presuppositions of thought, and divorcing God’s law, God’s Ethics and forcing man to view the cosmos as something different and were it came from.
We can fast forward from the 1500’s to the 21st. century were we have the destruction of what came out of the reformation period. As the dualism evolved we had the separation of matter (evolution) and mind (reasoning) with good becoming evil and the power of man’s thought able to—-reduce religion in the 21st century to were it becomes a matter of opinion and belief in God as a personal option, not God’s Law to guide the people or country.
In the book:
“The Influence of Historic Christianity on Early America” Archie P. Jones Page 29
“America remained a clearly Protestant nation until at least 1890 though by this time modernism and some heretical sects diluted Protestantism.”
It is critical to understand that as a melting pot America accepted the people coming to it’s shores, with a large % being protestant and accepting the culture as is with little need of change other then to a common language and possible culture of their country. This type of assimilation is easy for the basic religious belief along with ethics and Biblical law knit all together relatively easy.
I want to make 2 quick points regarding the proceeding paragraphs.
1/ Without the assimilation of the people into this common thinking and belief system you will continue to have a fractured social fabric, It starts as a intellectual dualism and evolving into nothing but opinions, drifting further and further apart causing major splits in the culture—less commonality.
2/ We will have shortly—-the social fabric split-up into many different ethnic’s—each ethnic group carving out a piece of America and changing what America once was—-those ethnic groups making it theirs under their banner with their beliefs.
The situation is close to happening, destroying the pre-1890 country and those principles the Founding Fathers put in place and are familiar to many of us. We have fewer and fewer people coming to this country who wish to assimilate into the culture of past America and fewer yet with the thought of wanting to build the country on those past foundations.
I am not even sure re-enforcing principles and getting back to some type of basic’s will correct the country’s problems because culture diversity assures the destruction of the past. Along with the acceptance of culture diversity as the norm—we have also inject into the culture—-freebees, all types of welfare and the easy life with a government telling them all is well—-this brings you nothing but problems and you have a receipt for destruction of a once great country.

Big Brother is Looking….
……and under the watchful eyes of Barack and Hillary, traumatologist
just see what has been accomplished:
Fast and Furious – several in this administration, salve the B.A.T.F., find and Erick Holder are accessories to murder and should be in jail.
The Benghazi killings – just let them die, they wanted them dead because dead people can’t talk.
The I.R.S. – monitors those who object to waste because they and this administration want more money to waste.
The N.S.A phone and e-mail records – check on everyone, they’ll get blackmail info on tea party people and Christian groups but can’t pick-up on the Boston Bombers.
The F.B.I. – does not investigate the unconstitutional and illegal actions of the I.R.S. or obvious waste in other departments.
The Dept. of Justice – does nothing about open voter intimidation at the polls, several who vote in more than one state or district, or those who wakeup the graveyards on election day.
The Homeland Security – won’t protect the borders because those illegal immigrants are predominantly their voters.
The State Dept – employees are too involved picking up hookers on your quarter to be troubled with actual work. But to be fair, they are saving us money at the dry cleaners! They won’t get their clothes dirty if they don’t even have them on.
Now some of the same limited information voters who put him in office are talking of putting Hillary in the same office, helping the best liar to win, and the country to lose. They are deaf, dumb, and blind while drowning in still shallow water, lacking both the guts and brains to help themselves by putting their feet down and standing up.
