C.S. Lewis On The Danger Of “Science”

Good advice via WND:

“The new oligarchy must increasingly rely on the advice of scientists until in the end the politicians become merely the scientists’ puppets.”

– C. S. Lewis, “Willing Slaves of the Welfare State” (1958)

Legendary scholar, writer and Christian apologist C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) more than a half century ago, warned about how science (a good thing) could be systematically perverted to attack religion, deconstruct law and destroy human freedom (a bad thing). In this essential documentary, “The Magician’s Twin: C.S. Lewis and the Case Against Scientism,” noted scholars analyze Lewis’ prophetic warnings about the political corruption of science (scientism) or the efforts to use the scientific method to explain, control, enslave every part of human life and how Lewis’ predictions are essential for us today.

    • Lewis was a fascinating character who converted from academic atheism to the Church of England, which greatly disappointed his close friend J.R.R. Tolkien. Tolkien was a lifelong Roman Catholic who had put up with Lewis’ snarky comments for years and thought when Lewis finally left atheism behind, he should make his way all the way to the one true faith, the church of Rome. All of Lewis’ writings, both fiction and non-fiction are well worth reading. I’ve always particularly enjoyed his children’s series THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA. CDE
