http://darwiniana.com/2017/12/05/the-left-needs-to-enter-era-of-postdarwinism-gop-tax-bill-social-darwinism-makes-a-big-comeback/ Although the eonic model says nothing directly about evolution in deep time it does provide a way to debrief ideas of random evolution such as the darwinian absolutes about natural selection.

The eonic effect: failed historical materialism and collapsing christianity…a refuge for both

December 4th, 2017 · No Comments

December 3rd, 2017 · No Comments

https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public/XML_DARW_GC_Axial?preview=WHEE_5thed_pdf.pdf The study of history can be greatly clarified by the study of the so-called ‘eonic effect’ but the treatment tends to be too complex for many, to start.

The ‘story’ of the eonic effect, a meta-metanarrative?

November 29th, 2017 · No Comments

This influence is crystallized most clearly in Smucker’s argument that the “historical task” of progressive movements “has more to do with ‘telling a good story’ than it does with ‘speaking the truth,’” and that the central front in the battle for power is “essentially a contest over popular meanings and common sense.”
