Fourth edition

May 29th, 2010 · No Comments

The new fourth edition of World History And The Eonic Effect takes a new and simpler approach to the issue, less theoretical, and more focussed on world history: http://history-and-evolution.com/ I suddenly realized that people are ignorant of world history. Thus any attempt at theory is hopeless from the start. And the influence of Darwinism has […]

In Search of History The third edition of WHEE is going out of print this week, so download the material if you want it. The new edition will less theoretical, more of a mere ‘world history’ in cameo. The relationship of evolution to history is a simple logica derivation, but so far most Darwinists can’t […]

Response on Kant

March 1st, 2010 · No Comments

Another post for the record, dealing with my 4th edition survey. Fourth edition, peer review, etc, etc… I got a belated response below today from one respondent, Stuart Newman, on the email/survey I sent out to dozens of professors/scientists in academia. It unwittingly illustrates my grounds for terminating any more interactions re: my work from […]

Fourth edition, peer review, etc, etc…

March 1st, 2010 · 1 Comment

I have been sending out a series of pdf review copies of WHEE/fourth edition to a bunch of academics et al. My purpose is to obviate the criticism that I would not submit to peer review, and to call the bluff of those who make that criticism. And as pointed out by one commentator the […]

Third edition to go offline

February 9th, 2010 · No Comments

If you are confused by the evolution debate, a look at the so-called eonic effect can help, if only to show the real complexity of the question, and the failure of all current theories. Start of World History And The Eonic Effect: WHEE is about to go offline and out of print as a book, […]

Money back guarantee: WHEE not peer reviewed! What a relief

February 3rd, 2010 · No Comments

Mazur on peer review The academic peer review system is a notable failiure on the question of evolution, and I have a bad feeling scientists will never get evolution straight, even the so-called dissenters. The system has made idiots out of intelligent scientists and biologists. Time for another way How about a money-back guarantee on […]

More on What Darwin Got Wrong: the danger of theories

January 5th, 2010 · 4 Comments

What Darwin Got Wrong (Hardcover) ~ Jerry Fodor (Author), Massimo Piattelli-Palmarini This book by Fodor and P/P looks very interesting and is right up our alley here: I requested a review copy a few minutes ago. However, as per Newman’s blurb below, I would note that the moment of paradigm shift has come many times […]

Falsifying Darwinism

December 25th, 2009 · No Comments

World History And The Eonic Effect Falsifying Darwinism Once we see that history and evolution are braided together and that the descent of man is ‘all of a piece’, we can use the data of history to assess the earlier stages of human evolution. Armed with the eonic effect we see at once that something […]

World History and the Eonic Effect: Civilization 1.1 A Glimpse of Evolution The legacy of modern historical research is an ambiguous one: the conductor’s baton of the Universal Historian taps the podium, in a concert of art, science and philosophy, the theme of evolution rising aggressively to the fore, soon becoming the basis of all […]

Logos/mythos issue in Armstrong

September 13th, 2009 · No Comments

The Nature of Myth – And More Good Stuff by Robert Bringhurst This blogger at Beliefnet picks up the ‘logos/mythos’ nonsense that is peddled by Karen Armstrong, originally in The Battle For God. The question of logos, and mythos, as handled by Armstrong is a cliche argument against the backdrop of the gross distortion of […]

Wright: having your cake and eating it too

September 2nd, 2009 · No Comments

Why can’t God evolve? Robert Wright has put himself in a contradictory position. There is an irony here: his Non Zero came out just months after World History and the Eonic Effect, first edition, and the suspicion was that Wright took the Kant idea and negated the eonic version for his own purposes (I protested […]

‘Big History’ done right: the eonic model

August 14th, 2009 · 1 Comment

The other day we discussed John Dean’s essay on Big History at Truthdig: ‘Big History’ and World History And The Eonic Effect It is a great idea, but there should be two complementary definitions: big history in the horizontal sense, and big history in a kind of vertical dimension, macro-history as opposed to micro-history. The […]

‘Big History’ and World History And The Eonic Effect

August 12th, 2009 · 3 Comments

Remarkably, John Dean, at Truthdig, has an article on Big History and the books of the genre: Looking for Great ‘Big History’ Books By John Dean Ron had introduced me to the notion of big history many years earlier, when he urged that I read Jared Diamond’s “Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human […]

Archaic Greece and the Old Testament

May 30th, 2009 · No Comments

Delphi, prophecy, hallucinogens But the irony is that Archaic Greece (leading into the classical era) gives us a better clue to what is going on in Old Testament history than does the Old Testament. http://history-and-evolution.com/whee/chap2_5_2.htm: Archaic Greece, the clue The Old Testament As Eonic Data

The human and natural sciences

May 12th, 2009 · No Comments

From The Science Of Freedom From Newton to the period of Kant we see a full cycle of a dialectic that resulted in the distinction of human and natural sciences. This period seems lost to us and we live in the secondary downfield arising in the emergence of scientism as a universal discourse. The Science […]

Darwin propaganda machine and WHEE

May 7th, 2009 · 3 Comments

Comment of Reading WHEE James said, May 6, 2009 at 6:52 pm · “No other book on evolution can compete with this one, which is remarkable, since ‘officially’ it doesn’t exist, and most scholars would be fired from their job if they dared mention it.” I don’t think this blog “officially” exists either. Both sides […]

History, evolution, and the futility of the Darwin debate

May 1st, 2009 · No Comments

The current Darwin debate is almost like a hoax, except that its polarized participants take their positions all too seriously. The sad fact of the matter is that the Darwin debate is confusing people: the two visible alternatives are both false, and the debate therefore is a kind of two-headed brainwashing device. Mostly, when they […]
