Here are portions of a recent post:
i sound flippant.
but really, given what we know about the universe and about ourselves, isn't it absurd to hold on to conventional ideas about our significance and identity and relevance and so on?
again, i sound flippant.
i don't mean to.
but it's hard to describe this in a journal(not blog)entry.
i actually think that the teachings of christ accomodate most of the new ways in which we perceive ourselves and our world.
the problem is that although the teachings of christ accomodate this, contemporary christianity does not.
here's more seriousness dressed up as flippancy:
christ: acknowledging quantum realities.
christiantiy: depressingly newtonian.
does that make any sense?
well, to me it does.
in order to move forward we need to accept that how we understand ourselves in the future has to be informed by what we know about ourselves from a quantum perspective.
and luckily, there's not a christian(or new testament)perspective that compels us to hold on to much of tradition.
many christians might disagree, but i would ask them to cite scripture to support their dissent.
i know, 'quantum perspective' sounds nonsensical and nerdy.
but we need to move on(no political pun intended).
we all know better.
we're all holding on to past conceptions of human endeavours and human significance, and they're outdated and erroneous and anachronistic.
our human significance is both far greater and far smaller than anything than we've hitherto recognized.
