And we dance to the music of pitiless indifference 

This view brings us right to where our Enemy wishes us to be all along. Anything that keeps us walking away from a knowledge of Jesus will bring you right to the ultimate, eternal trap. What a great post from the Isaiah 53:5 Project.

The Isaiah 53:5 Project

“In a universe of blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky, and you won’t find any rhyme or reason in it, or any justice.

The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference… DNA neither knows nor cares.

DNA just is.

And we dance to its music.”

Richard Dawkins, River Out of Eden: A Darwinian View of Life (1995)

If we have an impoverished worldview

That fails to embrace all of reality’s nuances

It means that

In the end

All we can do is

Dance

So we dance

To the music of pitiless indifference

Into endless darkness

Into oblivion

To the drumbeat of horrid doubt

We dance

We don’t get hurt

We don’t get lucky

  1. Richard Dawkins may be (or has been) a credible scientist, but he is not nor has he ever been a credible philosopher. Point in fact, when he wrote “River Out of Eden,” he was working well outside his field of expertise. The only reason the book sold as well as it did is the sheer fact that so many people vainly look to notable scientists to provide the answers to life; however, this is an unwarranted exaltation and exaggeration of science, which has proven very detrimental to the other disciplines of life and really to life itself (at least for those caught in the trap of scientism.) Good post! Thank you and God bless you!
