Help Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + XXXII (Intelligent Design, XV)

With the work of Susanne Langer and Ernst Cassirer and their use of symbols in developing man’s consciousness, my blogging effort on God’s Intelligent Design can be spoken of as ‘advanced.’ This advancement is based on the 1920s discoveries of linguists who found that man’s sensual data are primarily symbols. However, from the 1930s to the 1970s, the life scientists of the Western could not predict the behaviors of humans. Only statistical data could guide the thoughts of U.S. life scientists.

By 1971, I was hired by the Nixon administration to apply high technologies of the space program to domestic initiatives and to the nation’s crime problem. I became a staff member of the National Institute of Justice, U.S. Department of Justice. However, by 1977, President Nixon resigned. But the Ford and Carter administrations did not develop Nixon’s domestic initiatives. So my research was focused only on the national crime problem. Then, in 1989 I found a root cause of crime. I found that flawed symbols in the USA English language can create criminals. Robert Heath of the University of Houston agreed. But when the University applied for a research grant, it was not funded by the administration of Father Bush. Today, twenty years have passed and crime in the USA has still not been solved by the U.S. government. After I retired and studied the teachings of Jesus Christ, I learned that Jesus taught that evilness originates in man’s mind.

In the early 1990s, research on the brain and DNA protein increased. By the end of this decade, brain research had rejected the mind-body relation, accepted Darwin’s evolutionary theory, and accepted an atheistic form of materialism. On the other hand, the DNA research had developed a code to distinguish all things. This code was called a language of God by the Clinton administration. This DNA research was also aligned to Darwin’s evolutionary theory. Both research confused the people of the USA because it divided the nation into believers and nonbelievers.

As a result of the 9/11 New York City event and the Iraq War, the administration of Son Bush did not detect this bad national division. Hopefully, my completed and remaining blogs on God’s Intelligent Design will identify more information about this division, which the U.S. government has still not detected. Securing a free nation is not simply a job of defeating other nations with war. Securing the people of a free nation is a more complex subject.

    In 1696 the Irish philosopher John Toland wrote Christianity Not Mysterious. This book claimed that both God and God's revelations were accessible to human reason and that the so called Christian mysteries are nothing but the manipulations of the clergy.

    These two works broke the taboo of questioning Christian dogma, which was very courageous at the time, for this was the time of the Inquisition. People who questioned Biblical dogma could meet the same fate as Giordano Bruno who was convicted of being a heretic because he stated that the earth is not the center of the universe. For exercising his God-given reason Bruno paid the heavy price the superstition of revealed religion demanded - he was burned alive. In addition, these books took the additional positive step of injecting the use of reason in religious matters. Latter Deists were to completely reject any idea of revelation and base their ideas of God simply on the application of their reason on the creation. The order of nature to them was evidence of design. The design they detected in nature lead them to believe there is a Designer of nature, which is God.

    In Peter Byrne's book NATURAL RELIGION AND THE NATURE OF RELIGION - THE LEGACY OF DEISM, it's stated the paramount difference between Deism/natural religion and revealed religion is, ". . . a distinction between a supposed set of divine truths specially communicated by God in history and a real system of truths available to all by the use of the unaided reason." This cornerstone of Deism was welcomed by people like Jefferson and Washington because it brought ideas of God current with modern science and knowledge.

    The Enlightenment philosophers saw no need for the revelations, rituals, and dogmas of Christianity and the other revealed religions. And neither did key figures in American history.

    I wonder what christians understand if they read, when they read, Age of Reason "

    I know fundamental christians think Paine is an Atheist.

    Hi Cindy,

    See my responses below.

    Cindy: In 1696 the Irish philosopher John Toland wrote Christianity Not Mysterious. This book claimed that both God and God's revelations were accessible to human reason and that the so called Christian mysteries are nothing but the manipulations of the clergy.

    George: If one only accepts a monotheistic God, God is one and infinite. Since I agree that God is monotheistic, I say that God is incomprehensive. Since a monotheistic God is a creator, I say that God acts. Since these acts cause action in the universe, I say that God’s acts can be rationalized because the acts of a monotheistic God are orderly.

    Cindy: These two works broke the taboo of questioning Christian dogma, which was very courageous at the time, for this was the time of the Inquisition. People who questioned Biblical dogma could meet the same fate as Giordano Bruno who was convicted of being a heretic because he stated that the earth is not the center of the universe. For exercising his God-given reason Bruno paid the heavy price the superstition of revealed religion demanded - he was burned alive. In addition, these books took the additional positive step of injecting the use of reason in religious matters. Latter Deists were to completely reject any idea of revelation and base their ideas of God simply on the application of their reason on the creation. The order of nature to them was evidence of design. The design they detected in nature lead them to believe there is a Designer of nature, which is God.

    George: I believe that Bishop Nicholas of Cusa (1441-14 64) was the first to say that the universe has no center at all in his book On Learned Ignorance. Cusa was jailed but was released quickly. So Bruno was not treated fairly.

    Since a monotheistic God is not a personal God, any revelations would represent God’s desire for a general change. Since God is absolutely free, such a change is not necessarily in the Design.

    Cindy: In Peter Byrne's book NATURAL RELIGION AND THE NATURE OF RELIGION - THE LEGACY OF DEISM, it's stated the paramount difference between Deism/natural religion and revealed religion is, ". . . a distinction between a supposed set of divine truths specially communicated by God in history and a real system of truths available to all by the use of the unaided reason." This cornerstone of Deism was welcomed by people like Jefferson and Washington because it brought ideas of God current with modern science and knowledge.

    The Enlightenment philosophers saw no need for the revelations, rituals, and dogmas of Christianity and the other revealed religions. And neither did key figures in American history.

    George: A revealed religion does not fit a monotheistic God who expects all humans to function its role. Our ability to make moral laws seems to force the human function.

    Cindy: I wonder what christians understand if they read, when they read, Age of Reason "
    Do you know ?

    George: Today, the Age of Reason is a highly confused subject. I believe that Christians can read books or papers on reason. But they should be read with open minds.

    Cindy: I know fundamental christians think Paine is an Atheist.

    George: Since Paine primary interest was the independence of people and independence can come only from God, I doubt that he was an atheist.

    George
