THERE IS NOTHING TO FIND IN THE LIES OF THE CONFLATIONARY PROPHETS BUT INFANTILISM.
—“It seems that, in Genesis, God has legs, and doesn’t know the answers to the questions he asks. It confirms my inclination to the Marcionite Heresy.”—
There is nothing there to find.
We have our fairy tales, and myths.
We have our origin story: the Iliad and the odyssey
We have books of great literature.
Books of great ideas (moral literature).
Books of great history.
Books of great science.
Books of great law.
Books of great war.
We have imitation of kin for infants.
We have heroic imitation for children.
We have virtue ethics for the adolescent.
We have rule ethics for the adult.
We have outcome ethics for the mature.
CONFLATIONARY SIMPLICITY vs DEFLATIONARY COMPLEXITY
The attractiveness of religious parable is that it’s conflated (all the disciplines are conflated into a single narrative). And the simple beast in each of us prefers to call upon one ‘unit of measure’ (method of deciding).
But what separates man from animal is reason, and human from man, is deflation: the ability to compare multiple dimensions.
So while we harbor in us a romantic childish animal that wants to save the burden of learning and cognition by relying on the reductive, conflation of simple ideal types, virtues, and parables, rather than identities, measurements, spectra, equilibria, and models, we merely infantilize ourselves by returning to infantile means of conflationary measurement.
THERE ARE NO ANSWERS IN THE LIES OF THE CONFLATIONISTS.
End the lies.
