Atheists are actively working to remove "In God We Trust" from United States currency, a move that could propel us into fulfilling a one-world economic system.
"There is obviously no compelling government interest in having 'In God We Trust' on our money," atheist Michael Newdow says. "We did fine for the 75 years before the phrase was ever used at all, and continued to do fine for the subsequent 102 years before such inscriptions were made mandatory on every coin and currency bill. Similarly, the vast majority of nations manage to function without religious verbiage on their money."
While the history of the phrase dates to the 19th century, it wasn't printed on paper currency until the mid-20th.
Despite Newdow's work, a judge ruled last year that the motto does not violate the U.S. Constitution and should not be removed from the money.
Newdow, however, is continuing his legal battle, seeking plaintiffs to join his suits.
"(The motto) violates the first 10 words of the Bill of Rights ('Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion') and it violates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). Unfortunately, because Constitutional principles can be twisted and perverted, the challenges to this practice under the Establishment Clause have, so far, failed," Newdow says.
Newdow's efforts have profound spiritual implications. Money and spirituality are heavily intertwined, says eschatology professor and prolific author Paul McGuire.
"The world system is a control system that is both spiritual and economic," McGuire said at the Prophecy in the News conference. "Money is all about captivity, slavery and control. That is its essential purpose. It's essential purpose is not an economic instrument of exchange. It's about control and the occult and spirituality."
McGuire points to one of the founding theories of atheism, Darwin's theory of evolution, and Space Odyssey co-author Arthur C. Clarke to connect atheism, money and the occult: Science is magic. To remove God from the money would allow the occult to take over.
McGuire says the dollar bill is bursting with blatantly occult symbols, meaning the United States economic system is based on magic and sorcery opposed to logic and principles.
"The world system of economics is based on magic and illusion. It's based on your willingness to believe in it," McGuire said. "It's about the manipulation and control of the masses. That's what Jesus is talking about when he's talking about Mammon and the world system."
Worldwide, McGuire says, the economists are startled and worried. Financial planners are in uncharted territory as they look at the world economic system: Credit cards can be used internationally; the euro is used by 19 states in the European Union; and National economic crashes—like Greece and Spain—have plummeted the countries into crises.
The answer? To keep God in money, McGuire says, which could mean leaving Him on the bills, as well.
