If you think about it, this is the logical end rejecting the notion of God, revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord through holy scripture. First there is the devaluation of humanity in either false religion or science, which trashes the idea that a supreme being sacrificed all to save us. Then there is the impetus upon humanity itself, to save or sustain itself, seeing that there is no God who will do so. After which come whatever cockamamie schemes humanity apart from God comes up with to that end. Which of course empowers those who come up with these schemes, when a majority of the deceived of this world believe and back them up.
