World history: the clue to evolution

November 28th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Theories of evolution are enforcing a permanent crisis of culture: the key to extricating oneself from the debate is to see that neither science, in its current form so stuck on Darwinism, nor religion, especially in a culture dominated by Biblical mythology, is able to resolve the issue of evolution.
We need to face the facts of scientism: it can give us a useful set of facts about evolutionary history, but it has failed to explain evolution. In fact that is a simple question of scientific methodology: Darwinian natural selection is an improperly observed process, one that has downshifted scientific thought into such a lowgrade form of explanation that it is false on the spot on such issues as ethics and consciousness. And it is doubtful if there is an easy way to correct this, although there are a number of theories in the wings, such as self-organization. But these suffer many of the flaws of Darwinism, despite being considerable advances on Darwinian fundamentalism.
The religious mythology of the Old Testament is a huge obstacle in the way of understanding. But in a strange irony it reflects something we need to understand: the presence of ‘evolution’ in some sense in world history itself.
And it is the study of history that is the only way out of this dilemma. We must be able to open our thinking to see what evolution really is, what is really about, and this the eonic effect grants up to a point, a glimpse.
Scientists have no monopoly over the explication of evolution. Worse, their tactics of using Darwinism as a universal talisman of explanation and of obstruction of any attempt to correct the distortion they have created, throw severe doubt on the current conduct of science. That is a hard truth we have to face.

This is from the third edition to World History And The Eonic Effect:

It is world history itself that shows us the clue to evolution. Darwinists, by distracting attention to times unseen, have confused us completely. We are ready to examine the phenomenon of the eonic effect, the evidence of a non-random pattern in world history. And this will uncover evolution behind history, the real meaning of evolution as a macro process, in an extended sense that is more than genetic. The one thing Darwinists don’t want to find is such a non-random pattern, anywhere. The data for seeing such a pattern has reached critical mass only in our own times, and can be highlighted by simple inspection using careful periodization. The conclusion is inescapable: this structure demonstrates the existence of an evolutionary driver operating where least expected.
Darwinists claim that evolution is random, and that this applies to history also. Has anyone bothered to check the data? Against this, we discover, since the invention of writing, a rich patterning, a definite derandomized structure. So Darwinized thinking is wrong about history. That’s that. The eonic effect is a warning that the whole project of selectionist theory fails with history.

    Quoting from above “Darwinists claim that evolution is random…” Wrong. It is always difficult to get into proper debate about the subject of evolution when the other person either fails to understand or deliberately misrepresents the theory. Scientists do not claim that Evolution is an entirely random process – it is a process DIRECTED by a search for “fitness”. This search is driven by differential rates of survival and fecundity. There are randomn elements in the overall process but to describe it solely as a random process is to completely fail to understand the process.
