"Post Modernism" and the General Incompetence in Science Today

I posted the following comment on the American Thinker site, in response to a comment that referred to "cultural geography" and "post-modernism":

As a physicist, the term "cultural geography" sounds like another meaningless term, that belongs in sociology, not hard science.

I just took the time to look up "post-modernism" in my 4-inch thick dictionary (the only clue -- other than the vague mention of "gaia" -- your comment gave to the nonsensical "cultural geography"), and it wasn't there -- so I looked up "modernism", and found that it had to do with "a movement in Protestant Christianity...that seeks to establish the meaning and validity of the Christian faith in relation to present human experience and to reconcile and unify traditional theological concepts with the requirements of modern knowledge"...I think I see why you didn't get into that little detail.... "Post-modernism" would then refer to those who believe and assume that science and the world are past that "religious nonsense".

My unprecedented research and discovery, of the single OBJECTIVE origin of all of the "Ancient Mysteries" of mankind, is the real, historical truth, not any current "post-modernism" (i.e., anti-religion dogma), that declares that any mention of design of the "natural" world is out of bounds in science.

The truth is that the world WAS designed, and later re-formed wholesale to a lesser but still all-encompassing design (the latter, only 20,000 to 10,000 years ago, and NOT done by "God", but by the "gods", of worldwide ancient worship, and later relegated to mere "myth").

The war between "God" and science is quite false -- because it neglects the very real but misapprehended "gods" who remade the world and man -- and science is now in a crisis of general incompetence over it, as only my research has proved, with new knowledge of the actual design imposed upon the Earth by the "gods" -- as I said, the single objective origin of all of the ancient mysteries, all of mankind's earliest religious and religiously-held beliefs.

Easter Once Again

I have posted the following Easter comment on American Thinker:

Roman Catholicism, the original "universal" Christianity, appropriated many popular beliefs of earlier, so-called "pagan" religions, which were clasped tightly and unquestioningly by their followers in happy obedience to long, long tradition -- the colored eggs and new, green grass filled baskets of Easter, for example.

This was done to enable the swift acceptance of Christianity by the "pagans" who preceded it. They didn't call themselves that (hence the quotation marks around the name); the common-folk followers of the "pagan" religions simply called themselves the followers of one or another god or goddess, while the initiates, learned in the wider tradition, knew they were followers of the truly ancient "mysteries", or "wisdom" traditions -- handed down, it was averred, from the very "Beginning".

Easter predates Christianity, by many thousands of years. (I and I alone, could tell you just how many years, but you would have to read the whole book I wrote, "The End of the Mystery", to really accept it.) It was, and remains, an integral part of the original "Wisdom Tradition". The resurrection of Christ is tied to Easter because of that far longer tradition.

In fact, a host of other once-famous "saviors", "healers" and "Sons of God", in earlier religions, who all died and were resurrected, preceded Jesus -- whose name, by the way, MEANS "savior" and "healer", so it was a title, in that far longer religious tradition, more than just a name. Jesus was "born at Christmastime" because that was when those earlier "saviors" were born, all in accordance with the ancient wisdom tradition. And he died and rose again at Easter, for the same reason.

Easter was the most ancient celebration of the spring equinox -- the beginning of spring each year, around March 21 -- when the Sun itself "rose again" (every year), above the celestial equator, and Spring (when the Sun "springs" above the celestial equator) came once again to renew all life.

Christmas was originally the celebration of the winter solstice, around December 21 each year, when the Sun is at its furthest distance below the celestial equator, and starts back "up" (hence, the "New Year").

The "Resurrection of the Son of God" commemorates -- to any initiate of the eternal "wisdom tradition" -- the rising of the Sun, each year, above the celestial equator. And that, in turn, commemorates the higher truth, of the renewal of the spirit of Earthbound man, reflected in the new life around him.

All of that does not mean Jesus did not die on the cross, nor that he did not "rise again" (although the latter is highly unlikely, because it was after all a sacred myth, endlessly repeated, far before his time). But his story was meant to be just a template for all men, all Earthbound souls; that they -- we -- all rise again, after death in this life, to a greater, eternal life, in a higher reality known as the Spirit.

What happens after that depends, the ancient traditions all tell, upon how much we have learned here.

The Wisdom tradition is independent of the story of Jesus of Nazareth; his story merely follows that tradition. It is his TEACHINGS, not the stories told about him, that truly define him. In the end, we are all doomed, all promised, to be the resurrected Christ. That is what all Earthbound souls find so nearly impossible to believe, unless they can first accept it for ONE, like Jesus. Love him for what he taught, and meant to so many, and you can do it.

The Easter Egg Hunt is really a happy enactment of seeking and finding the spirit, the higher self -- to the initiate in the mysteries, that is.

An Imbalance In Modern Thought

I submitted the following comment on the American Thinker site, in response to another comment stating that the United States suffers now from an "ideological imbalance" -- specifically, towards the far Left, or Democrat end. It may, and should be, of interest here (and, by the way, I will take no political comments on this science blog):

The ideological imbalance came from cutting man off from the ancient wisdom, the traditions that the Enlightenment itself sprang from, and which is the unchanging foundation of all human wisdom. It was present from the beginning, but few in each generation were able to pass it on more or less whole, until democracy wrested power from the "divine Kingship", culminating in a country founded upon the inalienable rights of the individual ahead of the state.

Of course those wisdom traditions, so powerful in their effects, were bound up with religion, and the roots of religion have been hidden, despite all of the Creation myths, including the Genesis summary.

We are suffering today the consequences of false dogmas, both ancient and modern. The ancient ones -- the false ones, remember, is what I'm talking about -- all revolve around the idea of coercion of the individual in the name of one or another god or goddess, later in the name of an omnipotent, omniscient God behind all things. The modern ones all stem from the "humanist" backlash to all the old religious abuses, to throw God out with the bathwater of science as it were. Only the scientists, and their secular-humanist followers, got it wrong from the very beginning of their revolution (in Darwin's theory of evolution): It turns out there IS meaning to the world, not just human experience, without conscious learning to improve one's self and one's lot.

The Left is just the canary (tired, old, and stubborn to the end, but still just a canary, a bellweather) in the coal mine of human experience.

God is meaning, meaningfulness itself, and it is not accidental, conditional, or transient. It is eternal, and we are only here to learn that THAT is the only proper foundation for a life well-lived. From THAT flows the idea that All Men are Created Equal, etc., etc., etc..

And from that comes the knowledge that nothing on this Earth is accidental or the mere product of uncounted natural accidents, altogether added up and judged, falsely, as "evolution". It was all designed...only not all at once, direct from God.

No use trying to get into details, not all of which anyone knows anyway. Suffice it to say, undirected "evolution" is not the way of the world...Learning is the way of the world.

Which requires avoiding becoming attached to dogma, which inevitably descends into false, and from that coercive, dogma.

No, we are all here to LEARN the design of things, and know them as designs, within a greater design.

This is just a learning world. We actually come from and go back to, a greater and truer existence than the merely physical.

That's what we all, and especially the Insane Left, need to learn.
