PostSubject: Modernism and Christianity   Fri Feb 10, 2017 4:15 pm

Christianity as it exists today is as much a creation of liberal secular humanism, which emerged out of its collapse, as liberal secular humanism is a creation of Christianity, it's values and cultural inheritance, etc. They created one another in a strange postmodern situation, even though they are antagonistic toward one another.


Christianity today is a seething mix of broken sects and denominations, literal readings, symbolic readings, feminist readings, some Christians even find a way to incorporate Islam, etc. Christianity up to the 1800's is so different than any Christianity that comes after a certain event, out of which Liberal secular humanism also appeared.



I will write more about this later, but I felt the need to note it. Also, whenever I talk about Christianity, it's virtues or shortcomings, just assume I am talking about the one disconnected from liberal s. humanism and modernity, that is, the first one, unless I state otherwise.

Christianity was one of the deepest and longest evolutionary periods for man. If the meaning of Christianity has been obscured and distorted by this layer of modernity on top of it, of which Nietzsche was a member among many, then a very large block of human history has been erased and must be recovered in order to move forward, as I have been saying all along.

We could look back at the old medieval Christian philosophers and writers, for an idea of this buried substance; the substance must contain elements of Judaism, Greek and Roman culture and mythology, as well as political elements from all of these. A strange kind of fusion, very interesting that it even came into being.

"We must, now armed with such a language, realize the “transcendental unity of ideas,” through a new morality that aims, not to hypostasize experience and grasp in positive knowledge a series of particular virtues and vices, but rather to fully explicate this continuity; where philosophy exists to represent this transcendental order, morality most exist to mediate the two spheres, the spheres of experience and ideality." --Parodites

"Between this sky and the faces turned toward it there is nothing on which to hang a mythology, a literature, an ethic, or a religion—only stones, flesh, stars, and those truths the hand can touch." --Camus

"It is a tedious thing to be always beginning life; they live badly who always begin to live." --Seneca

"I kick ass, all these other humans suck balls." --Inmendham
