Skip to comments.Exhibit A for Explaining the LCWR Report
Posted on 04/21/2012 10:41:20 AM PDT by marshmallow
The keynote speaker for the annual conference of the LCWR is New Age quack Barbara Marx Hubbard. If youve never heard of her, just try to imagine a combination of Deepak Chopra and Ray Kurzweil with an extra helping of crazy. Her big thing is Conscious Evolution, which is the latest repackaging of est with an added transhumanist/post-humanist subtext. Here she is on her website explaining Conscious Evolution, which sounds like a combination of X-Men comics, techno-fetishizing, narcissism, New Age nonsense, paganism, trite bromides, bad grammar, Gnosticism, and good old heresy. (Emphasis added.)
It has become obvious that a creative minority of humanity is undergoing a profound inner mutation or transformation. Evolutionary ideas are not only serving to make sense of this change, but also acting to catalyze the potential within us to transform. (Thought creates; specific thought creates specifically. [?])
It is the planetary crisis into which we were born that is awakening our sleeping potential for transformation. Planet Earth has given birth to a species capable of choosing whether to consciously evolve ourselves and our social forms, or to continue the course we have set toward our own extinction. And the choice is clear.
All great spiritual paths lead us to this threshold of our own consciousness, but none can guide us across the great divide from the creature human to the cocreative human. [??] None can guide us in managing the vast new powers given us by science and technology. None of us have been there yet.
What we can envision
The enriched noosphere, the thinking layer of Earth, is now replete with evolutionary technologies that can transform the material world. Within the next 30 to 50 years, we could transform our physical bodies, our minds, our social structures, and set in motion.....

Ah yes, the siren song of Satan, “you can be transformed as gods”.
I read the article hoping to find her “Pale horse” quote where she admits they want/plan to kill 1/4 of the population that’ll “refuse to evolve.” If you think this is just some fringe kook, go check her VP Nom speech at the ‘84 DNC on youtube.
She might not be well known but she’s got power, influence and a multitude co-conspirators. UN’s religious division is pure evil. If you’re in some ecumenical “church”, dust off your Bible and also do some research on the UN’s agenda.
There is far more of scam than science in this. It’s on a par with eugenics and as dangerous.
You are way too nice.
It's 100% b.s. nonsense.
There are people who actually believe this crap. I assume they have enough intelligence to read at a fifth grade level or have someone read to them. My wife says I have an overly optimistic view of humanity.
Sounds like the lady took too many science fiction shows too seriously. I suspect drug use, too. “nina0113” would have laughed at this with me.
A “creative minority of humanity”? Is that anything like a “master race”?
Adapted by Barbara Marx Hubbard as "Planet of the Nunopods."
And she's the Keynoter that's scheduled to hit the LCWR bandstand this August???? Oh Lordy. The Inquisition didn't arrive a minute too soon.
Ok, this is depressing as hell.
As a bishop, what would you do?
I would love to invite former new ager, Sharon Lee Giganti, to speak at our parish. Her personal history is shocking, and would scare anyone away from new age:
(Our parish isn’t involved with anything new age, but you never know what parishioners are into. And everyone knows somebody who is into this.)
It always comes down to, “People who aren’t as (fill in the blank) as I am don’t deserve to live.”
Law enforcement officers dream of following a criminal conspiracy to the very top, and having the authority to take off the head, instead of saying, “Oh, sorry, Mr. President. We were just mistaken.” In a similar way, every type of crazy comes back to the Father of Lies, “a liar and a murderer from the beginning.”
Have a Guinness - you broke the code!
I like your wife's style.
