A recent Salvo article analyzed the “Absurdities  Only a PhD Can Believe:

  • There are no universal standards.28markos
  • There are no essential differences between men and women.
  • There is no clear dividing line between humans and animals.
  • The design we see around us is only apparent.
  • Man is by nature good an is therefore perfectible.

A Society Built on Illusion Cannot Stand…

Sharing a find…
Quoting from Salvo MagazineThe Illusionist, by Robin Phillips:

The ancient Greeks had a school of philosophers known as the Sophists, who took pride in their ability to prove impossible things. Some sophists even hired themselves out at public events, where audiences could watch spellbound as they proceeded to prove propositions that were obviously false.

The sophist philosopher Gorgias (4th century b.c.) invented an ingenuous argument to prove that: nothing exists; and even if something exists, nothing can be known about it; and even if something exists and something can be known about it, such knowledge cannot be communicated to others; and even if something exists, can be known about, and can be communicated about, no incentive exists to communicate anything about it to others.

It would be nice if such sophistry had been limited to ancient Greeks. However, the 20th century saw a thinker whose nonsense rivaled and even surpassed anything produced by the sophists. His name was Herbert Marcuse (1898–1979), the guru of the 1960s counterculture.

The article continues, exposing the fallacies underlying the contradictory secular culture of 2012 brilliantly.
Robin Phillips clarifies the connection between the sexual revolution and Marxism, points out the roots  of liberal media bias, and explains the trend of silencing opponents through diagnosis rather than through dialogue.  Phillips has written an analysis of our present societal predicament which amuses, informs, and intrigues.

Promise, I am not related to them, I don’t own stock, and I am not getting paid!

I was positively delighted to discover this article, to subscribe to Salvo magazine, and to learn of the existence of the Fellowship of St. James, an alliance of authors, professors, clergy members, lay men and women, and writers—from various Christian denominations—who promote orthodox Christianity, the natural law, and traditional Christian morality. Editor: James M. Kushiner.

Salvo magazine’s stated goals:

Blasting holes in scientific naturalism, marveling at the intricate design of the universe, and promoting life in a culture of death;

Critiquing art, music, film, television, and literature, interrupting mass media influence, and questioning the sanity of our consumerist lifestyle;

Countering destructive ideologies, replacing revisionist fictions with undeniable facts, and paring away political correctness;

Debunking the cultural myths that have undercut human dignity, all but destroyed the notions of virtue and morality, and slowly eroded our appetite for transcendence;

Recovering the one worldview that actually works.

What a refreshing new form of journalism!
Guess what everybody’s getting from me for their next birthday?
A subscription.
