"The scientific revolution is also rooted in the occult as magic, i.e. the manipulation of nature."
The thread title comes from one of Dr. Makow articles about luciferianism, and I'm not exactly sure what he means by that. How did science go from understanding the creator by studying the creations, to something occultic? :-P :-o
Lucifer is the "bringer of light." The occult inspired the so-called Enlightenment, which defined modern culture. Francis Bacon was a Rosicrucian. Diderot, Rousseau, Voltaire, and Newton were all Freemasons. Fifty of the 56 signatories of the US Declaration of Independence and most U.S. Presidents were Masons. So were Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill. The plan of the city of Washington was designed by a Mason in the shape of a pentagram, the symbol of Lucifer.
