In this episode I continue with responses from listeners to The Dead Ends and Destruction of a Sterile Life.
We revisit the email from Law and his analogy of finding a woman + making kids to going to the gym and becoming fit. It works as an analogy and it doesn’t. I’ll attempt to explain why more coherently than I did last time around.
Then we move on to a comment left on the post by Dimitri regarding my assessments of the God Pill. Dimitri is wrong about almost everything but his commentary is intelligent and though provoking. It forces The Great One to respond intelligently in return.
Well . . . as intelligently as TGO can when he’s tired from lifting, swimming and eating too much.
It’s easy to see taking the Godpill as a coping mechanism. But it doesn’t actually fix the problem to which you’re referring. I’ve taken the Godpill and I’m pretty bummed about being single and childless in Clownworld. But ultimately it is about there being some meaning and telos to life, suffering and the universe.
Atheism is a moral and philosophical dead end, and people like Krauser and Roosh realize this. Without a transcendent reality, you’re left with nothing but deterministic materialism, which reduces us to a bunch of cells randomly firing off in accordance with arbitrary physical and chemical laws. Ultimately you have no free will (since your consciousness is just the product of some chemical reaction) and no reason to feel any sense of joy when hearing a great piece of music, holding a beautiful woman or gazing in wonder at a majestic landscape. The phenomenal order present in the universe would just be an amazing accident.
Similarly, if death is just eternal unconsciousness, why should it matter if you don’t pass on your genes? Why should you care that you won’t leave a legacy? In the face of suffering, why bother even living? Once you’re dead, it’s lights out forever and you won’t care at all if there’s no greater reality. it’s easy to say that it’s all a product of evolution, or about preserving a coherent social order, but even if evolution is true you have to consider that some force is guiding it to a higher end. Otherwise there’s no point to anything.
Also consider genetic entropy, where it’s actually far more likely that we’re DEVOLVING, not evolving. Human DNA is subject to more and more mutations and in a few thousand years we will go extinct. Eventually the universe will collapse in on itself or succumb to heat death. Now that’s a black pill. The only antidote is the Godpill.
I recommend Fr Robert Spitzer’s quartet discussing the various evidence for the Christian God as a starting point:
– ‘Finding True Happniess’ (which addresses much of what you talk about in this podcast)
– ‘The Soul’s Upward Yearning’
– ‘God So Loved The World’
– ‘The Light Shines on in the Darkness’
Ultimately, no amount of proof of Christianity will ever be enough for someone who wants to shut themselves off from God. Most of us don’t want to be accountable for our actions and want to think that we can make it on our own.
Best of luck brother!
If you’re going to by the book Finding True Happiness but the fucking book through my Amazon affiliate link at cls.link/amazon so I can get some fucking money you selfish bitch! Then I can buy yet another Supergirl statue I don’t need before I die and vanish into nothingness.
Send some commies to Canada. They said they would go if the Trumpenfuhrer was elected President but they are too dumb to figure out Canada is to the north and too poor to get there ’cause they have liberal arts degrees. Commies To Canada.
