E. Michael Jones: Sapiens, Metahistory, Metaphysics & Logos

Thanks Tim Kelly from Our Interesting Times for this very, very interesting interview! Link 

Dr. E. Michael Jones returns to Our Interesting Times to discuss his article “Jewish Fables” - a critique of Yuval Noah Harari’s Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind. We talk about how Harari's book is another example of an atheist evangelist using "science" to promote a cosmology that denies Logos and creates a social order based on a ruthless will to power.

  1. Thank you Penny for drawing my attention to E. Michael Jones. He really has important things to say.

    Of course the world is rational, logic and makes sense (which means that it has a 'sense' of direction) because is created by the Logos (which means Word, but also Reason):

    "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God ( Ἐν ἀρχῇ ἦν ὁ Λόγος, καὶ ὁ Λόγος ἦν πρὸς τὸν Θεόν, καὶ Θεὸς ἦν ὁ Λόγος). 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. 16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. 18 No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him" ...
    And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. 33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. 34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God" (John 1)
