  • Hegel's Deity: How Evolution Gave Us Postmodernism, Deconstructionism, and Political Correctness

    Hegel's Deity: How Evolution Gave Us Postmodernism, Deconstructionism, and Political Correctness Nancy Pearcey March 27, 2015 5:59 AM | Permalink How has evolution shaped our view of humanity? We often hear that evolution is the key scientific prop for the philosophy of materialism, with its reduction of the human person to a complex biochemical machine. But spiritualized versions of evolution have appeared as well -- for example, in the philosophy of Hegel. In our own day, Hegel's spiritual/cultural view of evolution has led to its own form of reductionism: the postmodern reduction of individuals to social groups based on race,...

    Jerusalem Post ^ | 11/2/13 | Maya Shwayder
    NEW YORK – While the US has “implemented unprecedented sanctions and pressure on Iran, we may very well have to use military force to back up our policy,” Leon Panetta said on Thursday night. The former US defense secretary and CIA director made the remarks while addressing around 600 people at the Anti-Defamation League’s 100th annual meeting Panetta, who was receiving the ADL’s William and Naomi Gorowitz Institute Service Award, said the US needs to “maintain a healthy skepticism” when negotiating to suss out Iran’s true level of commitment to negotiations over its nuclear program. “It is the Supreme Leader

    Washington Examiner ^ | 1/17/11 | Byron York
    By all accounts, an Internet documentary named "Zeitgeist" was the favorite movie of accused Tucson shooter Jared Loughner. Created in 2007 by New York-based conspiracy merchant Peter Joseph, "Zeitgeist" is a two-hour mash-up of old and new conspiracy theories involving religion, the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, and the Federal Reserve system. Its message is simple: "We've been lied to. We've been lied to by every institution.""He wanted to watch it all the time," a teenage friend of Loughner's told the Arizona Republic. "It was cool at first. But then it got weird. It was all he wanted to do.""Zeitgeist" has...
  • Frank Rich Still Trying To Blame Right For AZ Shootings

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Like Rahm Emanuel, who didn't to waste a crisis, Frank Rich doesn't want to let a murderous rampage pass without trying to wring political advantage from it. By now, even most ardent liberals have had to admit that there was no nexus between conservatives and the manifestly psychotic AZ shooter. But there was Rich, in his New York Times column of this morning, still bitterly clinging to the accusation. To be sure, Rich recited some disclaimers that by now have become standard. But by unlucky paragraph 13, Rich could restrain himself no more. Fulminated Frank: "Much of last week’s televised...

    Don’t you love how the Left takes a warped twentysomething … Who went to a high school with curriculum crafted by Bill Ayers, - Whose favorite tomes include The Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf, - Whose classmates describe him as a left-wing, weed-wafting, atheistic Beavis, - Who had a human skull altar erected in his backyard, - Whose hero list (according to Facebook) includes Barack Obama, … and somehow, they magically wiggle their nose, tug their ear, and stomp their feet and poof, abracadabra, this punk instantly morphs into Newt Gingrich?

    ChicoER Gate ^ | 1/13/10 | Chuck Wolk
    In my last post I told you that when Jared Loughner's former friend, Zach Osler, spoke to ABC's Ashleigh Banfield, he told her that Jared did not subscribe to the left or the right in politics.  The only problem with that is Zach then told her that Jarred was profoundly influenced by Zeitgeist documentary and that it really altered his mind-set on how he viewed the world. So then what exactly is this Zeitgeist all about? Basically, the documentary, "Zeitgeist", is the propaganda arm of an organization called "The Venus Project". The Venus Project is a movement aimed at...

    "Two hours into Z-Day, the educational forum associated with the online movie “Zeitgeist,” Peter Joseph, the film’s director and the evening’s M.C., stepped out from behind his lectern and walked forward earnestly on the stage... The evening, which began at 7 with a two-hour critique of monetary economics, became by midnight a utopian presentation of a money-free and computer-driven vision of the future, a wholesale reimagination of civilization, as if Karl Marx and Carl Sagan had hired John Lennon from his “Imagine” days to do no less than redesign the underlying structures of planetary life..."

    The Burning Platform ^ | February 23, 2010 | James Quinn
    Political leaders and the mainstream media have been blindsided by the sudden mood shift of the country in the last few years. The reason they have been blindsided is they believe world history is linear. Liberals have now begun referring to themselves as progressives. These people think the world only progresses. The facts indicate otherwise. History is cyclical. History is replete with grand empires like Rome, Spain and Britain. It is also replete with Dark Ages, depressions and wars. Strauss & Howe have established that history can be broken down into 80 to 100 year Saeculums that consist of four...

    An online movie documenting the close ties between ancient pagan religions and today's Christianity is "antichrist" in nature, destroying the faith of believers by combining some astonishing truth with plenty of error. That's the claim of a Christian historian and author who, ironically, has himself been educating the public about the impact heathen sun worship has had on traditional Christianity. Richard Rives, author of "Time is the Ally of Deceit" and "Too Long in the Sun," is sounding the alarm about "Zeitgeist," a 2007 documentary written and narrated by Peter Joseph, a freelance film editor, composer and producer in New...

    I'd like to get FReeper opinions of the "Zeitgeist" movie at this location: http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com/ I haven't found any articles about it, and I think it's fairly new... It's a little slicker than the usual propaganda (Loose Change, etc.) Part I attempts to debunk Christianity. I found some of the comparisons to other religions to be compelling (but not enough to shake my own belief system). Part II is like the Loose Change bullcrap... Pretty much garbage that's been debunked elsewhere... Part III is a clever (production wise) conspiracy-type section that tries to sew it all together (we are controlled by...

    The Christian Science Monitor ^ | Monday, June 27, 2005 | Stephen Humphries
    Tales of a nation under attack, which recur when public anxiety rises, multiply at theaters and on TV. Steven Spielberg's "War of the Worlds" is acutely attuned to the zeitgeist of post-9/11 America. In this adaptation of the H.G. Wells novel, Earth is still the most desirable piece of real estate in the Milky Way, the envy of the galactic neighborhood. But this retelling of the alien-invasion story, set in modern-day New Jersey rather than Wells' Edwardian London, tacitly acknowledges American fears of an attack on US cities. A principal aspect of the film is the way a nation unites...

    . . . clap the board. Generation X has become Generation Zzz — a new gang of mature, cinematic whingers. THERE is a spectre haunting Hollywood. It’s a terrifying vision of well-dressed fortysomething urbanites drifting aimlessly around city streets, staring at total strangers and ruminating on the nature of human intimacy, then returning home to sham marriages and alienated children, eating their dinner in silence and spending most of the night staring into the bathroom mirror, wondering in quasi-poetic internal monologue about the fact that we are all, on some unspeakably profound level, like, totally connected to everyone else.

    The Conservative Voice ^ | March 5, 2005 | Matt C. Abbott
    The Second Vatican Ecumenical Council, held from 1962 to 1965 at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, had as its objectives the renewal of the Catholic Church and to modernize its forms and institutions.1 Unfortunately, during and after the Council, the Zeitgeist – the German term for “spirit of the age” – was largely responsible for the decline in certain key aspects of the Catholic Church in the U.S. These aspects are the number of priests and religious, weekly church attendance by its members, and the state of Catholic marriage. The Zeitgeist also fostered the rise of dissident Catholic organizations and...
