The Profits of Baal

For most of my life when reading the Old Testament, I was struck by the thought of how these stories matter today.Do we still have high priests and false prophets? Does God still intervene in the things of man? If so, I sure would like to see some fire from heaven sometime soon. 


The one story I just can’t get out of my mind is, Elijah and the Prophets of Baal. The stage is set in 1 Kings where over 450 prophets of Baal meet Elijah on Mt Carmel for a spiritual showdown. 



 An 800 BC cage match if you will. 

 

Altars are built, animals are sacrificed, leaving the fire up to the respective gods. 

 

Whosever god or God consumes the sacrifice by sending fire from heaven will be declared the victor. 

 

It’s Yahweh vs Baal in a winner take all for the hearts and minds of the people of Israel. 

 

As the story goes, the prophets of Baal wail and cry from dawn till dusk. 


They become so agitated in their pleas to their god that they start cutting themselves. Blood sprays and yet nothing happens. 

 

Elijah mocks them “maybe he is on the toilet and can’t hear you. At long last they give up. Now it is Elijah’s turn. 1 Kings 18:37-40 

 

“Answer me, O Lord, answer me, that these people may know that you, O Lord, are God, and that you have turned their hearts back. 

 

Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt offering and the wood and the stones and the dust…”


Great story, but how is it pertinent to today? What is the answer to my childhood question: do we have prophets of Baal today? 

 

I believe we do. 

 

But they are not called prophets, they are called experts. 

 

Just like the prophets of old, today's experts are keepers of secret knowledge, knowledge based in “science” that we must devotedly trust and never question. 

 

Who are you to question?” “Trust the science.” “Don’t do your own research.” 

 

Any of these sound familiar? 



 Remember, the experts locked us down, masked us up, and told us a vaccine that neither stops spread of infection, was 95% effective. 

 

Never forget this. 

 

Ever. 

 

Then came the profits. 


The massive profits for big pharma, big tech, and the political class. Yes… the profits of Baal.The keepers of the secret knowledge somehow grew richer and richer and richer all on the backs of those they were supposed to be helping.The profits of Baal. 

 

Now that Covid is mostly a bad memory (we hope), the experts have turned back to their core crisis.The single biggest threat to mankind-Climate Change. I’m not going to debate the science of climate change. 

 

I agree that climates change and humans have an effect on climate. 

 

I’m going to point out how it has become a faith unto itself. The very definition of paganism. The worship of mother earth or the created rather than the creator. 

 

I was stunned with the January-February edition of the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine. 



 Here are the first 5 articles: 

 

Climate change: How Will Family Physicians Rise to the Challenge?

 

How Physicians Should Respond to Climate Change

 

Climate Change Psychological Distress: An Underdiagnosed Cause of Mental Health Disturbances

 

When Climate Change Shows up in the Exam Room 

 

Climate Change and Policy Reforms: A View from the Primary Care Clinic

 

I’m sorry this is not science, this is a cult. Imagine if you will, changing the words Climate Change to Jesus. 

 

Jesus: How Should Family Physicians Rise to His Challenge?

 

How Physicians should Respond to Jesus

 

When Jesus Shows up in the Exam Room

 

Jesus and Policy Reforms: A View from the Primary Care Clinic

 

My guess is there are millions more people world wide concerned with Jesus and his teachings than with climate change. 

 

Yet my Jesus journal would make heads explode. 

 

Please just stick to medicine. Like real medicine. 

 

Don’t make every political topic a medical one. 


 Just give me an article on multi-drug resistant gonorrhea, something pertinent to actually treating patients.Leave the neo-paganism to Druids and the like, at least they have cool robes.

These folks, like the ancient pagans, actually believe they can control the weather. 


And they are trying.Geo-engineering, anyone?? That's a rabbit hole for another discussion. I find it curious that the solution to every problem whether it’s climate change, Covid, intestinal bloating, is always the same. Marxism. 

 

That is what we must fight Neo-pagan Marxism. 

 

I believe that stated or not we humans are wildly religious. The strange thing is those that are the most fiercely religious, don’t believe in God. 

 

Pick any of the woke ideologies and they all start from the same seed, Neo-pagan marxism. 

 

The culture war is really a religious one. 


 People of traditional faiths vs the Neo-pagans. We are back to the ancient story of Yahwah vs Baal. 

 

Oh… by the way… I forgot to mention this.  

 

Baal was the god of the weather. Buckle up!  Holy smoke is coming next.
