  1. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    Read Heidegger's critique of ontotheology, as well as Melendo's and Maritain's critique of modern post-Descartes episteme. Western philosophy is nihilistic because it does not talk about Bweing or...
  2. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    Yeah, actually I took this from Rudolf Steiner's archive because it is the most concise and best summary ever written on the subject. Of course interpreting it from the Republic itself is, like, more...
  3. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    As an answer for everything you have been senselessly repeating here, I'll just let this guy speak up for me here. Watch from start to finish:

  4. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    It's genuine disdain for subjectivism borne out of a nihilistic experience and readings of Heidegger and Nietzsche.

    As for one clear, concise sentence that can summarize scientism and logical...
  5. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    I'll finish this by quoting a prominent 19th century critic of the Enlightenment, who foreshadowed its demise and its rotten results:
  6. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    No, wrong, it says quite simply that the objective universe is only materia signata quantitate, or pure number, and that the rest of the elements are subjective projections. Totally fallacious.

    ...
  7. Re: Why hasnít Europe ever trusted Russia?

    As per the OP, let's just say this: for the period before WW2, you would do better to read intellectuals like Ivan Kireyevsky and Oswald Spengler.

    Russia was always very far apart from European...
  8. Re: Socialism for thee, but not for me. Vox media staff unionizes, company shifts hiring to part-time and contractors

    Leftism today has become a sort of pseudo-shadow. Root leftism was socialist, but nowadays leftism is just cheap disguise for furthering the interests of neoliberal plutocrats like Soros, who...
  9. Re: Socialism for thee, but not for me. Vox media staff unionizes, company shifts hiring to part-time and contractors

    That's not socialism. It's left liberal crony capitalism, a sort of US trademark. It means neoliberal capitalism, exploitation, de-unionization, underemployment and all that stuff - except that it...
  10. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    I have nothing against Christianity, so long as it is genuine High Church Christianity anyway. This Christianity existed in the West under the semblance of Catholic Papism ("tu es Petrus et super...
  11. Re: Brazilian President Bolsonaro's policies

    He has softened up a lot since then. Now he holds LGBT flags in the open, and has enacted legislation that protects women from violence. His sons, Carlos and Eduardo, are soft and friendly to the gay...
  12. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    I meant precisely that. A fat guy on steroids, is totally, fake don't you agree?

    As for the rest of your post, it's plainly and simply gobbledigook.



    You seem to be very poorly aware of...
  13. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    Anti-Western feeling is well and alive in the global leftwing, including the most extreme sects. And no, just ask the youth of the Arab Spring: they don't believe in the West or Democracy. Ask the...
  14. Re: Brazilian President Bolsonaro's policies

    As for Bolsonaro and fascism, let's just say this: All of the traits that you denounced are a key figure of Communist China, including suppression of dissent and minorities, anti-intellectualism, and...
  15. Re: Brazilian President Bolsonaro's policies

    Ahhh Ludicus, this is just ridiculous and just reflects how much the liberal leftwing mentality is stupid to the extreme.

    For one thing, protection of minorities is not a priority. It's a tool,...
  16. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    In a certain, special sense, the West was once considered a role model for all cultures in the world that had been left behind by modernization. But nowadays, outside the West, in Russia, the Islamic...
  17. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    I think that the most tragic aspect of Western decadence has been the collapse of nationalism and the collective values of society.

    Nationalism was one of the great idols of modernity. At least...
  18. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    All of this is inconsequential and idiotic.

    The modern world neglects and treats nature like an object, has no hierarchy, has terrible social relations, Western and modern imperialist have...
  19. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    And let me add to this...

    What you call reason is actually like a big fat guy on steroids. That's because it's a direct function of the Western metaphysics of subjectivity. Human intelligence is...
  20. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    .. And let me add, Hesychasm is a very restricted process. Only the most seasoned monks who manage to enter Mt. Athos will ever get to practice it.

    As for Western Christianity, it has *never*...
  21. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    And let me say this: it is perfectly possible for you to experience what we would call "supernatural" or "immaterial" realities when you're following a path of initiation - these are actually just...
  22. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    Vedic and Sufi ascesis is primarily a factor of Orthopraxis. Because correct practice gives the desired, objective effects on the practicioner. Kinda like the ascesis of the ancient Alchemists, which...

  24. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    I think you're just wrong wrong wrong, Common Soldier. I'm going to reply in detail, tomorrow. But of course if you ever experienced Vedic or Sufi life, you would know how Christianity - Catholic and...
  25. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    You look a lot like you read Julius Evola and take him seriously. No, LOL, JE might seem insane to the modern mind, but actually, once you have stepped a bit into the Zeitgeist of Platonism, JE's...
  26. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    No, rather, to be poignant about your remarks: modern science constitutes in a myriad of fragmented specialized fields. They're all locked up, and there's no genuine hierarchy or transcendence in...
  27. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    Actually, let's just say one more thing about this.

    No actual science is a science without its underlying *philosophy* of science. And this is as true today as it... ever... was.

    All true...
  28. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    I was going to reply to some of Chriscase's epistemological assertions back some pages ago, but I kinda got lost in the middle with University assignments and looking for another job, so I would have...
  29. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    All the truths of Science are based upno approximations, not certainty.

    As for those who think it's incapable to have the so-called "Maths of God," you're clearly unaware of pythagoras, plotinus,...
  30. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    I should add, Ken is an eccentric and posted these videos long ago. But he's one of the few who ever truly delved and resurrected Platonism very well.

    Now, I know, hey! He's also ridiculing...

    Pythagoras, Plato, and Plotinus after them were well aware, by their intense study of geometry and nature, the Golden section. The purpose of this very...
  32. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    Hi, @chriscase, will reply soon to your query.
  33. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    As I said previously, in matters of doctrine, a Christian must either believe the first seven infallible councils, or he's not a Christian at all. Centuries of liberalism have not changed this...

    There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all,...
  35. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    The modern Western weltaanschaung, and Protestantism, are built upon - philosophically - from Cartesian subjectivism and German idealism on one hand, and on the other hand, we can say that...
  36. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    You're correct in your very last remark: practice trumps theory.

    All that I'm going to say about this, is this: truth must be necessarily related as the adequation between the thing known and the...
  37. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    I'll reply to it shortly. Anyway, I like some of your replies and they're challenging enough, for sure.
  38. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    This is wrong. Yet another problem with the post-Cartesian, Enlightenment thought. A Thomist could well reply: you cannot confuse and reduce the Being (Esse) to an Entity (Ens) and its innate...
  39. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    Hi, chriscase, the thing in question is: the understanding of reality that was brought by the Enlightenment, Secularism, Western ontotheology, and the likes, is naturally deficient and cannot cover...
  40. Re: Why Religion Cannot Be Measured by Modern Rationality - A Critique of Rationalism, Scientism and Post-Modern Metaphysics

    I disagree, you have no proof for your statements. Rather, the main issue is: your statements contradict what Jesus himself said. There's also the fact that the Early Church didn't write the Gospels...
