UN Worships Moon goddess

Read it here in the Washington Post. We give the United Nations billions of dollars to promote all kinds of crazy ideas and this is one of the worst.

Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, invoked the ancient jaguar goddess Ixchel in her opening statement to delegates gathered in Cancun, Mexico, noting that Ixchel was not only goddess of the moon, but also "the goddess of reason, creativity and weaving. May she inspire you -- because today, you are gathered in Cancun to weave together the elements of a solid response to climate change, using both reason and creativity as your tools."

I urge you all to read a great book by Rodney Stark on the rise of reason, science and civility because of Christianity. When we worship gods that are as capricious, prone to sin and weaknesses as we humans then we lapse into mysticism and irrational, unreasonable ideas that are anti science.

But we Christians worship the Creator God who used reason and logic to create the world and humans. This means we can use reason to better understand the created universe. The UN is pushing the world into less reason and less rational thought and into mystical ideas that end up with rain dances and moon worship. Oh, and evidently the goddess of weaving will save our planet.
