The Continuing Reversal of Reality as a Reality
The Continuing Reversal of Reality as a Reality
A new article on an old issue

Until 1492, most men considered the world flat. According to historical statistics, this belief actually prevailed longer than it has been disproved and was a belief that dominated ideas for much of man’s existence. The flat world crowd surely would have thought anyone insane who proposed that the world was not as they had thought. Further, a proposition so absurd would have insulted a scholar’s intelligence, invoking not only opposition, but also natural skepticism and suspicion.
Anthropologists estimate that the first humans appeared roughly two hundred thousand years ago[i]. Scientific evidence says that the human state of natural selection developed at that time was equivalent to that of modern man, excluding small changes of genetic distinction. Using this estimation of man’s first appearance, it amounts to 100,483 years before man discovered that the earth was round. What a long time to develop so little.
Since Columbus’ revolutionary discovery, man has gone on to uncover many secrets about his world. It has been five hundred and seventeen years from (517) his discovery to this present day. Since then, society has developed and man’s knowledge has increased exponentially. These leaps lead to the gradual loss of religious authority and the placing of faith in man’s ability. Man’s achievements resulted in his pride. His pride being seen unclearly, he rushes quickly to defend against all that opposes it. The problem is it opposes his very nature.
The illusions created by man’s self-sufficiency are a root cause of problems seen in today’s society. These problems come from an incorrect concept of whom and what man is and from an incorrect concept of the actual order of physical existence. I argue that in order for society to heal, man must account for the possibility of his own error in his thinking about who he is and his place in the world. It is just as likely that men today are as wrong about human existence as men five hundred years ago were about the earth’s shape.
Evolution and dialectical structured concepts are roots of this great illusion. Ironically, evolution’s own language of science points to it’s inaccuracy with the Second law of thermodynamics[ii]. This universal expression of the principal of entropy proves that the dialectical process and the basis of natural selection are impossible. It is explained as a natural law that states that although the total energy in the cosmos remains constant, the amount of energy available to do useful work is always decreasing.[iii] Yet man ignores this because it is contrary to his ideals. It is a law disproving a theory, yet illogically the theory is still upheld by the science in general. What a contradiction to logic and a demand for scientific accuracy!
The reversal of natural laws is the proposed solution man has created to justify how he may live without submitting to a higher authority. It has produced the fallacy that human nature is inherently good. The Dictionary of Philosophy says (Mautner, Thomas/1997); “There is evil in the world: bad things happen to people, and people do bad things.” In addition, it is “a disproportion between virtue and happiness, between vice and misery: an evil exemplified when the wicked prosper and good people meet a grim fate”.[iv] Logic inquires: How does a society that consists of people who are by nature good produce evil when they become a society? How can a good person do bad things? Who are the wicked that are prospering, are they inhuman? Evil has to originate from somewhere.
Today’s proponents of secular thought compromise truth as a defiant means to explain society’s developmental obstacles. However, the truths they compromise are the very foundations for the solution. History continually documents man’s evil nature. Yet many men are now arguing against historical facts to explain the fallacies of society.
The solution begins with seeing the true course of human history. It requires man to see himself realistically, which is contrary to the view that he is basically good. We need the truth. When man sees himself honestly, he will see the world honestly.
Societal survival demands a vital consideration of these delicate ideas we build our future on. The evidence clearly requires a re-consideration of scientific assumptions. It is with earnest conviction that I express these problems, which are not new or unknown, to anyone who will do the same, in hope that we may find truth and direct society toward successful growth.
