Pulling ourselves out of this age of suicide
But long before this time the suicidal seeds were sown by the metaphysical error of the transcendent view of history, with a view of God as beyond the imminent and sinful material world, which seriously diminished life.
History is the gradual knowledge by man of evolution. The goal of evolving in the material world to supermaterial Godhood need not deprive us of either science or religion. Defining life as internally activating toward evolving to higher and higher forms of life and eventually to Godhood, while also always being shaped by natural outside evolution, may be a bit further than science and religion have wanted to go, but we need to go there.
I find the arguments that evolution is “non-purposive” and random as closed as the religious arguments denying evolution, information is lacking in both arguments. Those who believe in the complete randomness of evolution often make dismissive comments regarding any kind of direction to evolution, usually in footnotes to show its unimportance to the text, but then the footnote’s are often emotional and long, protesting too much.
I see evolution moving inevitably in a pattern, even though it has its random elements, and the pattern has a discernible direction, in spite of instances of stagnation and retreat, toward “higher and higher more effective living forms,” as Cattell put it. We are activated from within to live and successfully survive and reproduce in every cell of the body, reacting and adapting to the various environments we live in.
Material evolution comes before God because evolution leads toward Godhood. That makes evolution sacred. This is not an evolution without sacred purpose. Religion and science need not be lost. In the Twofold Path we can conservatively retain the old first inward impression of a transcendent God now understood as transformed in the outward path of material evolution to supermaterial Godhood.
I would call this age “the age of suicide.” We have been talked into this baleful behavior and brainwashed by the Media and the Schools into opening our borders and our cultures to a variety of ethnic and racial groups who have naturally proceeded to change Western culture to the point where we feel so alienated from our traditions that we are now dying faster than being born.
To pull ourselves out of this age of suicide we need to understand that although there is nothing beyond immanent material existence, material existence evolves toward ever-ascending levels Godhood. We need to become in harmony with that goal, and help it along; it is the most sacred goal of life, for all ethnic groups and races.
