The Nature of the Liberal Scientist

1,628 words

It has baffled me for a long time why scientists, among all people, are among the most fervent proponents of egalitarianism and race denialism. This phenomenon is more salient in the humanities and social sciences, on which many would have a second thought before qualifying them as “science.” Read more …

On the Necessity of Christianity:
A Response to Vox Day

Joseph-Nicolas Robert-Fleury, Galileo before the Holy Office

1,485 words

It’s not often we find Vox Day making a mistake. In his recent post entitled “Mailvox: The Necessity of Christianity,” I believe Vox makes not one but two when he says that the ancient Greeks did not develop science, and that “any efforts to make America and Europe great are doomed unless they are centered around Christianity.” Read more …

A Philosophical Perspective, Part 2

Scientist leaving the world, an engraving c.1520 representing changes in the medieval conception or interpretation of the heavens.2,007 words

Part 2 of 2

If race realism is better grounded in reality than racial egalitarianism, how do racial egalitarians still cling to a false doctrine? The answer is by making ad hoc adjustments to their theory. Read more …

Race & Astronomy:
A Philosophical Perspective, Part 1

1,878 words

Part 1 of 2

Joseph Wright of Derby, A Philosopher Lecturing on the Orrery, circa 1766

Joseph Wright of Derby, A Philosopher Lecturing on the Orrery, circa 1766

In this essay I would like to compare racial theories and astronomical theories. We all know that the earth orbits around the sun. In the first part, I want to argue that evidence for the reality of race is even stronger than the evidence for heliocentrism, which means that racial egalitarianism should be taken no more seriously than the idea that the world is flat, or the idea that the sun orbits the earth.

The Axial Age & the European Discovery of Logos, Part I

. . . was the Presocratic discovery of logos.

. . . was the Presocratic discovery of logos.

The idea of an “Axial Age” was a boon to the ideological drive after WWII to envision the history of all cultures as a “collective” undertaking between “connected” peoples. The behavior of Germany during Second War was testimony, apparently, of what happens when an otherwise modern culture refuses to join with the world of cosmopolitanism in defense of its ethnic integrity.

Scientism vs. CreationismI’m a bit old for Bill Nye. By the time his children’s science show came on in the early ’90’s, I had already graduated to reading Carl Sagan’s more advanced presentation of the vapid and vacuous “I Fucking Love Science!” worldview.  Read more …

6,614 words

Author’s Note:

The following text is a transcript by V. S. of a lecture on the presocratic background of Aristophanes’ Clouds. I have edited this transcript to remove excessive wordiness, and I have added section headings and transitions. I found it sobering to read this transcript, for I discovered just how widely the written and spoken word vary, and how flabby my lectures are compared to my writings.

Politicized Science vs. Scientific Politics

Gabriel von Max, “The Vivisectionist,” 1883, detail

2,731 words

It may seem ironic for those who are said to have “far Right views,” but perhaps one of the biggest obstacles in the struggle for the West is the far Right’s obsession with the scientific understanding of human races. It is not so much that scientific knowledge about race is irrelevant to our political purpose (which is the struggle for the West), but, rather, that this science is thought to possess a political utility it does not and will never have.

Of Science & Technics, Religion, & Values

William Blake, “Isaac Newton,” 1795

1,527 words

Science is not meant to be a religion or a worldview, although the scientific outlook does influence one’s worldview, which is why so many scientists are atheists. The scientific outlook is empirical, depends on evidence and experiment, and is hostile to the idea of “faith” – Read more …
