Jay’s argument should be ‘Logical’ only means internally consistent in the pursuit of an end, vs True, meaning testimonial, meaning testifiable, meaning non-conflationary, consistent, actionable, correspondent, coherent, limited, and complete under realism, naturalism and operationalism, free of loading, framing, suggestion and obscurantism. Ergo as wisdom literature, all faiths are some degree of logical in the sense of internally consistent and utilitarian. They are true in the lower standard of providing a paradigm of action that produces desird ends. They are not “true” in the sense that they are also testifiable.
The Christian faith is logical within the conflationary system of thought that is not limited by constraints of testimony under realism, naturalism, non-conflation (identity), operationalism (actionability) and correspondence. The fact that Christian theology as wisdom literature has produced the most complete system of non-aggression, tolerance, submission, non-adversarialism, and produces exceptional serfs, peasants, citizens, and to some degree sovereigns is simply a fact because it trains the intuition by continuous reinforcement of the suppression of dominance expression (at rather obvious costs).
(I’ve come to agree with the criticism of Protestantism largely because it causes doubling down on occultism and sophistry rather than the nearly legalistic discipline of the catholic church. That said, as far as I can tell, the competition between romanticism – the restoration of natural religion – and Christianity, and marxism-secularism in the 1800’s in response to the scientific, industrial, and Darwinian evolution, meant a failure of romanticism was the great missed opportunity to restore our religion of the primacy of man and our transcendence through action INTO gods. The church failed to reform into natural law and science as evidence of our greater understanding of god’s will, and the success of marxism as a materialistic promise of reward in life after revolution in the modern world, like supernatural promise of reward in an afterlife in the ancient world. )
The problem is that it teaches Christians to lie using the Abrahamic system of lying. Although again, there is a difference between an evolutionary one (science), a beneficial but stagnating wisdom literature (Christianity), a parasitic wisdom lit (Judaism), or a predatory and destructive one (Islam). (Dylan has gone from philosophy(justification) to sophistry (verbalism) to theology (occult). Some of us evolve from mythology to history to science producing testimony. Some of us evolve from mythology to theology to occultism. It depends on whether you were born with the feminine bias in empathic understanding or the masculine bias in analytic understanding. That’s why religiosity is heritable, and those of us who have a lesser NEED for empathy choose the sciences. It’s not complicated. Although we might have to separate just as the left and right must separate. Because as far as I can tell what I think we are seeing is a restoration of demand for speciation now that the agrarian age of homogenization is over.
