thothandmaatmarried#RobertAntonWilson defines scientism and it's soul-smashing consequences on page 7 of the introduction to his play Wilhelm Reich in Hell. #science #dogma #secularism #secular #atheism #god #religion #freedom #history
- cheshire_cat_of_logicI've never heard of scientism. Are there really scientific groups out there that make claims of infallibility? To me that is highly unscientific.
- thothandmaatmarriedAre you familiar with the story of what happened to Wilhelm Reich? @atheist_freedom
- cheshire_cat_of_logic@thothandmaatmarried no sir. I'm off to bed but if you regale me with the story, I shall read it in the morning ^^
- cheshire_cat_of_logicOr source it...either way :)
- thothandmaatmarriedThe source is the book that I am excerpting @atheist_freedom Ever read any books by Robert Anton Wilson? He has been one of my primary intellectual influences for the last 11 years.
- cheshire_cat_of_logicHaha of course it is xD how silly of me :P His name rings a bell yet I don't think I've read his books.
- thothandmaatmarriedCosmic Trigger is his memoir. See also the documentary Maybe Logic. Which should be on YouTube in full. @atheist_freedom
