The limits of the ID argument…//Michael Behe muses on design and COVID-19 

The ID movement has always suffered the ambiguity of ‘design’: we have critiqued darwinism, but that doesn’t mean we adopt any theological implications of design/ We have always pointed to design as an element in nature and the ‘designer’ issue as improperly inferred by the ID movement. With resources from Bennett to Schopenhauer the idea … Continue reading The limits of the ID argument…//Michael Behe muses on design and COVID-19 

 The ‘will’, beside ‘being’, as a factor of homo sapient unconscious/conscious ‘mind’.

This post was supposed to be at The Gurdjieff Con, but I pulled a fast one and put it here… Modern biology can’t do justice to the human ‘organism’/being: the issue of the will is the lost chord of the human mystery. The monotheistic religions, or perhaps at least christianity did address the question but … Continue reading  The ‘will’, beside ‘being’, as a factor of homo sapient unconscious/conscious ‘mind’.

Making a mess of understanding eternity 

We used a different definition of ‘eternity’ yesterday in our post on the ‘soul question’. It may still not be quite right. But Bennett’s usage in The Dramatic Universe is certainly more cogent than the confused usage in ordinary discourse, and as far as xtian theology is concerned, who knows. But none of the definitions … Continue reading Making a mess of understanding eternity 

Yes, there is a war between science and religion | Alternet

I consider myself a secularist and have written dozens of posts at my blogs to prove the point as harsh critic of ‘religion’, whatever that is. But in the end science groupies are almost as idiotic as religious types and the fact remains, btw, that those horrid fundies at the the Discotute have found and … Continue reading Yes, there is a war between science and religion | Alternet

Marxist confusion over ‘dialectics’…. From Samkhya to Diamat…dyadic and triadic logic

https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public?preview=Toward+a+New+Communist+Manifesto.pdf There have been several versions of our Manifesto: this one contains an appendix called, From Samkhya to Diamat. This attempts to critique the ‘dialectic’ and more specially the Engels style ‘dialectics of nature’ by showing the uncanny resemblance to ancient Samkhya. The problem here, as noted by J.G. Bennett, is that marxists confuse dyadic … Continue reading Marxist confusion over ‘dialectics’…. From Samkhya to Diamat…dyadic and triadic logic

The eonic effect: cross-examining world history

We have suggested the so-called eonic model as a way to get a bird’s eye view of world history, but the result seems a bit complex, so we have tried a simplified approach. This is material from the old Darwiniana, out of context. We will formally reintroduce the subject very soon… ———————— Cross-examining history

Virtual futures

Hyparchic futurism and the postcapitalist potential July 16th, 2018 Bennett’s idea of hyparxis is on somewhat shaky grounds but it points to possible leftist futurism that stands beyond the inexorable degeneration of capitalist globalization… ————– R48G: hyparxis and revolutionary futurism… December 11th, 2017 •

Communism and Gaian Stewardship

Communism and gaian stewardship June 14th, 2018 • As examine the eonic effect it dawns on us that evolution has to be a global process: the idea of piecemeal evolution is unrealistic as science even though it is endlessly promoted as science (scientism). We lack a real framework for correct analysis of this, and of … Continue reading Communism and Gaian Stewardship
