The Second Eclectic

Technology changes how we relate to God and each other

Eclectica

Some eclectic thoughts from my recent reading:

1. Wisdom is to know and follow the fundamental order of the universe.

2. Evolutionists have no logical basis for ethical environmental concern.

3. Since no one listened to me, this is what we're stuck with.

4. This sounded poetic today: "Tonight, the sun is bleeding to an end."

5. Consider: Scientific controversies end in social and philosophical transitions.
Copernicus' revolution pitted science against Bible-driven knowledge about the world.

Galileo's empiricism predated the birth of Empiricism (knowledge through experience) and Naturalism.

Newton's physics helped usher in the Enlightenment (knowledge through reason).

Darwin's "survival of the fittest" was expanded to influence thought about society (social Darwinism), religion (Wellhausen's German Higher Criticism), economy and politics( both in Marxism).

Einstein's theories of relativity jumped from physics to ethics, ending in Relativism.


Speculation:
Could Intelligent Design weigh in on a transition in philosophical thought in the next hundred years?
