Lol. OK so the first sentence of her review is: and this may be a paraphrase : it is generally recognized that theology has failed.
I’m not gonna look back to it again but it says something very close to that yeah pretty much everyone knows by now that theology has failed.
Wtf. Is my short answer. Who is generally recognizing this, how many people are recognizing this? and I think it’s a bunch of theoretical nonsense if you ask me. 😄lol
I swear; it must be based in like five people sitting in a room with painted windows pondering what everyone else thinks.
“…it is generally agreed by those who agree..”
—that is the perfect example of the Postmodern religion asserting its intellectual priority.
It is such an overreaching presumption and general intellectual pomposity to make that statement.
And the thing is is you can’t argue with them, because they will pull out all this proof that really is no proof except that they have decided it’s proof. The day of the great intellectual religion of the logos. Oh! But it’s not the logos because here I am intellectually going to define to you how the logos only exists with in a discursive definition of religious context, and what we are talking about right now has nothing to do with the logos because I’m going to define my discourse differently to say that I am not worshiping the logos in my intellectual arrogance.
It’s the Sokal Hoax all over again but they have learned how to disguise it better.
—that is; in a way.
NWow if this is the first post that you’ve read of mine, then you should realize that I’m not proposing that everyone should go out and pick their religion of choice.
But what I am proposing is that these arrogant bastard’s and Bastreses Are themselves proposing a religious cosmology. It is such a flaunting of postmodern ignorance of theory to distance themselves from their own religious beliefs through their intellectualism.
Philosophy is never for the present it’s always for the distant future in which the philosopher is not alive.
The philosophy of the present, is religious cosmology. That is just plain fact, as my book The Philosophical Hack, begins to describe.
And so I should stop calling them idiots so much I should call them very smart, these clerics of the postmodern religion.
But the book does seem interesting and so I’ll probably read it.
That’s all that matters anyway.s
Note: I should recognize that what we could call a Speculative-Continental line indeed has come across the issue I treat; that is indeed where the “theology-that-has-failed” comes from. But the issue is exactly that they could propose that such theology has failed. My point: This kind of theology cannot fail. Rather, it can only be denied.
