Trifunctionalism: the balance of powers between masculine (dominance) war, neutral (reciprocity) law, and feminine (submissive) faith, has is 5000 years old. Our FIRST LAW of self-determination made competition between the elites necessary. So LAW not Man, force or faith rules.
Sorry, but Scientific thought is the optimum cognitive paradigm, Rule of Law by the Natural Law of reciprocity is the optimum political paradigm, Christian ethics are the optimum social paradigm. We can disagree on the nonsensical dogma used to create it – but not the behavior.
Whose idea was to seize power by claiming to blame european adherence to the natural laws at the cost of market eugenic suppression of the reproduction of those unfit for market as oppression by using the left’s three lies: end of scarcity – and the nature and malleability of man?
The left created this division by its three great lies. Utopian pseudoscience as a revolt against the Darwinian explanation for the disproportionate success of northwest and Far East civilizations: climate, agrarian, manorial, and market eugenics.
No more lies. Separate or war.
The Europeans didn’t lie. Their post bronze age collapse religion was philosophy: Aristote, stoicism and epicureanism. The Chinese didn’t lie, they had Sun Tzu, Confucius, and Lao Tzu. The Hindus didn’t lie they had Vedas. Buddha originally didn’t lie. Only the Semites lied.
Again. I’m not an atheist per se, I’m an anti-Abrahamist: the Abrahamic method of lying, and an anti-scripturalist: treating wisdom literature as truth. The human demand for mindfulness – the services of religion, is substantive, but the only civilization that ‘lied’ was Semitic.
Public Intellectuals like priests they evolved from, profit from the attention, persuasive power, opportunity, and revenue, by selling false promises of freedom from the laws of nature, esp. natural selection, and criticizing people of merit for ‘oppressing’ people who lack it.
Why did females develop verbal and social superpredation by undermining and conflict generation, using gossiping, rallying, outraging, shaming, moralizing, psychologizing, projecting, fictionalizing? Why did males develop physical and political superpredation by violence (truth)?
Answer? Weakness vs Strength. Why did the Europeans and East Asians institutionalize military, state or law, reciprocity, markets, eugenics? Same reason. Why did the Jews institutionalize the female means of adversarial competition as their group strategy instead? Same reason.
Abrahamic religions use the novel invention of the Abrahamic method of deceit, which uses the female social superpredator strategy of evade, delay, deceive, and undermine by the use of false promise of unwarrantable returns advanced by pilpul, defended by critique and GSRRM.
Women are easy to understand. Maturity amplifies the sensitivity of their associative processes to extend their nervous system to carry the cognitive load of constantly empathizing with the minds of multiple young children. With the load of 3+ kids, women are as rational as men.
Men think in an environmental and political, not interpersonal world model. Our ‘awareness’ is spatial, territorial, and while it’s ‘impolitic’, men tend to see women and children like lions see prides. Our awareness is ‘many’ all the time. It’s the same defense at greater scale.
But women without kids to take care of direct their amplified sensitivity into harms the same way that men direct their amplified dominance into harms.
Humans aren’t cognitively healthy when they reach full adulthood without having to train children younger than they are.
Evolution is still going on, but the most important of it occurred before the agrarian revolution, at which point natural selection for cognitive evolution slowed favoring lower aggression at the cost of smaller brains.”Populations” didn’t evolve equally. “North-er made smarter.”
AFAIK, the only Conservative intellectuals of substance with popular presence are Buchanan, VD Hanson, C. Murray, Macdonald, now D.Murray and Dutton. Conservative ‘historicism and moralizing’ failed because the scientific truth is antithetical to the promise: Law=Markets=Eugenic.
Because you’re not thinking of your brain as an AI that’s constantly running a cognitive economy because brains are terribly expensive, and brains terribly uncomfortable with uncertainty, and post-tribal life extremely uncertain, increasing social and survival cognitive burden.
“Gaslighting” means questioning your sanity because of a failure of your sense perception. I does not mean falsifying your ideas or beliefs you depend upon to explain your model of the world, on terms you can understand, with your ability, background, and knowledge.
Our long march out of ignorance, superstition, bias, and wishful thinking is a record of the falsification of our ideas and beliefs – the vast majority of which have been false attribution of design or intent to phenomena emergent from nothing other than the laws of the universe.
Science like our law it evolved from requires statements are testifiable, because they provide explanatory power under realism, naturalism, and operationalism – not that they’re ‘provable’ or ‘verifiable’ – not because we can make “justifiable” but untestifiable excuses for them.
Everything from the later phases of the emergence of our universe to evolution to the evaporation of black holes is at least instrumentally observable, testifiable, emergent and explicable by the explanatory power of the short list of the laws of the universe.
We are missing the geometry of the primary structure of the subatomic universe because we can’t deduce it from testifiable information with our present methods, instruments and math, and it likely must be discovered by ‘evolving’ it by trial and error using massive computation.
Hmm. An omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent deity would never intercede because to do so would require it failed at omniscience. All existence, all cause, and all consequence must be deterministic, and no choice or action ever necessary. If deities exist they cannot be “o, o, o”.
Deities are systems of anthropomorphic measurement easily comprehensible to the animal intuitions of the pre-rational human mind, by providing an imitable, empathizeable, sympathizable, agent, parent, or headman, archetype of the group’s competitive evolutionary strategy.
At best, the Christians are stuck with either an omniscient omnipotent, omnipresent, designed evolution, a non-interceding god and an emergent Jesus, or emergent evolution, an emergent deity, interceding through Jesus. The thing is, the latter choice is scientifically defensible.
The truth in the physical sciences is desirable. The truth in the behavioral and cooperative sciences is almost always not. I get the same treatment as Darwin for exactly the same reasons. But, except academy isn’t trying to take power from the church, WE are from the ACADEMY.
