Devastation from Secular Environmentalist Ethics

Utilitarian philosophies are rooted in rebellion against the Creator, claiming to have a noble purpose for the good of the many. Essentially, for the pleasure and what is good for the majority. Secular views are inherently self-refuting and contradictory. Climate change and other environmental initiatives are often utilitarian.

Secular ethics are rooted in the rejection of God. Some ethicists want to see millions of people eliminated for the good of the world. Our Creator has far better plans.

Individuals are often required to sacrifice their freedoms for the good of the majority. In the movie Minority Report, three people with precognitive abilities were essentially imprisoned so they could provide information for the Premurder division of the police. While the results gained from their skills were considered helpful for society, nobody questioned the fact that they were essentially slaves — in a tank of water, no less. The purpose was utilitarian, to sacrifice themselves for the good of the many.

We know that most environmentalists have good intentions, wanting nature and humanity to live together in harmony. As we read in "Radical Environmentalism and the War on Humans", some sidewinders have the notion that to save Earth, the human populations should be radically reduced or even eliminated! So...this is for the good of the many? Not hardly!

Evolutionary thinking is contradictory here. If we have climbed to the top of the food chain by our own efforts, should't we reap the benefits? We should be doing whatever it takes to help us survive and thrive, including our own pleasure. But no, there are secularists who see us as predators on the earth.

Similarly, global climate change extremists use leftist policies supposedly for the good of the many to save the world. These are actually restricting freedoms and a means to power for elitists, and enthusiastic people fall for the bad science that is rooted in evolutionary thinking.

Bible-believing Christians know (or should know) that we are stewards of the world that our Creator has given us and are accountable to him. Conversely, secularists who deny God make up their own rules and are answerable to others who deny God. I for one do not want their version of "ethics" for the making of policies. It is far better to trust in God's Word.
Normally, when someone goes to college, we can assume they are competent in their specialization. But when someone claims to be an ethicist, what comes out of their mouth is so predictably absurd and satanic that it’s not even interesting anymore. So when philosopher and author of Secular Ethics in a Materialist Age Todd May wrote a New York Times piece entitled ‘Would human extinction be a tragedy?’, one hardly needs to read it to know that May thinks, on balance, it could be quite a good thing for the earth if humans were no longer on it. However, he is wrong in several key areas.
