|It was also the beginning of several years of internal turmoil (not to mention the beginning of the end of my BJU career), for which I am now grateful, but wish never to repeat. |
Indeed, that is the very real turmoil that AFD etc could not possibly stomach, they are that far removed from reality by their Mythology, that they suffer from institutional schizophrenia.
I think Mythology has something to say about that.... somewhere.
Oh yeah ....thats right......it REQUIRES being reborn, who wants to re-live the birth trauma? It could be like a very bad acid trip for the hard core fundamentalist.
Mythology in fact, it is full of such journeys, 40 days in the desert, Job wrestling his demons in his sleep the whole tale of Noah is a tale of rebirth, not to mention most of the tales of snakes in Myth, complete with snakes eating their own tails.
The snake shedding its skin is the archetypal rebirth symbol in Myth since everyone in ancient times would immediately recognize the symbol or sign. Nowadays who has seen a dried out snake skin while out and about?
A very real human experience that at one level works IF the story is taken as true OR is experienced by the journey taker.
Science deflates Myth as true history and for those that are unable to see beyond the words, removes meaning which causes all sorts of teeth gnashing...such as UD Joe's' and AFD's denial.
The real problem is that the clash of science vs Myth produces people trapped in a reality no-mans land.
When objectivist rationality treats Myth as true stories a self created hyper technical h3ll is created where absolutes govern and nuance and subjective reasoning are meaningless.
If Myth were not mythandled by major religions and charlatans like Dembski and his moronic minions but accepted as they were always meant to be accepted; as windows into a magical reality full of wonder and wisdom, though not absolute truths, then there would be no need to have the stamp of approval from science.
The conservative has but little to fear from the man whose reason is the servant of his passions, but let him beware of him in whom reason has become the greatest and most terrible of the passions.These are the wreckers of outworn empires and civilisations, doubters, disintegrators, deicides.Haldane
