Like apocalyptic prophets many philosophers have began to proclaim the end of an old age and the dawning of a new. Analyzing the epistemology and metaphysics of the old order with fresh eyes they saw the ushering in of a new skeptical zeitgeist. On the coat tails of two thousand years of Christendom Martin Luther’s elevation of his own mind above that of accepted forms reincarnated in the personas of those he inspired evolved into a message of full blown skepticism.
First skepticism about “the Church”, then skepticism about the Bible, then skepticism about religious experience, then skepticism about metaphysics, and so on. People have reacted differently to this new milieu of resistance to authority and doubt about religious truth claims. For the most part it can safely be said that the implications of this worldview have been stifled, but when you compare our post-modern age to modern and pre-modern eras it’s easy to see the effects that skeptical philosophy combined with scientific advance has had.
Churches are reforming, discussions are changing, many are disillusioned and many are finding new meaning ex nihilo. Zarathustra’s voice is being heard, and many believe themselves to have taken the red pill. There is no guarantee that this age will be a golden age but modernity and pre-modernity wasn’t a walk in the park either.
Here I treat subjects in philosophy, religion, science and politics through a post-modern, personally post-Christian, hopelessly conditioned, contingent and reactionary lens.
Spread the good news- the gospel heavy ears need to hear today. Most of what we have thought most of the time on ultimate issues has probably been wrong.
