He discusses the possibility of this occurring through natural theology, or contemplation, but decides that this is not possible due to the “ignorance and stupidity of the people” (sec. 6, pg. 29, para 1).

Aikman (2008) refers to Atheism as a cause of uncertainty and violence in the world of faith. It only disturbs the concrete beliefs of Christians to the supremacy of God.

In an article that Herbert wrote in Omni Magazine titled “Dune Genesis”, he discusses background information he used while writing the novel. Herbert wanted to create a piece that would embody the Messianic upheavals that periodically overtake the world. Within the novel, he would include demagogues, fanatics, con-game artists, and the innocent and the not-so-innocent bystanders. The reasoning for this was that superheroes upset the power balance and structure and that those erroneous mortals would eventually replace them. Herbert also included analogs of modern day situations within the novel.
That is because acceptance is not a must but it is in fact and accomplishment. Joseph Smith founded the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, in the 1800s. However, due to lack of acceptance Smith followers, known as Mormons, were persecuted by traditional Christian denominations.
