Religion/secularism in the Axial Age

May 10th, 2010 · No Comments

On the Axial Age
A careful study of the Axial Age in light of the eonic effect (in this passage from the third edition, about to go offline as the fourth edition appears) can show the way that the myths of revelation were right and wrong in ways that many non-religious secularists also get wrong. We can see better now what they got right, and where they went wrong, and also see that Archaic Greece was a more stupendous revelation, if we must use those terms, than the Hebraic. And that the issue is not ‘god’, but the mystery beyond evolution itself.
In any case, religion and secularism were born simultaneously, so we can dispense with the differences.
