The Old Testament, the Axial Age, and design

The Old Testament As Eonic Data

The irony of design arguments is that their own proponents have spoiled them, due to their confusion over design, intelligent design, and the action of a divinity.

If we examine the Axial Age we see a ‘design’ in history, and this design is ‘evolutionary’ by a mechanism too complex for our understanding. But we would be mistaken to call that ‘god’. And, ironically, the Old Testament history in the Axial interval shows that same ‘design’, but it would be difficult to say that that was the action of ‘god’.
