Here Steve Turley comments on Jordan Peterson explaining the place and importance of the Bible. “It is not that the Bible is true; it is that the Bible is the pre-condition for the manifestation of Truth.” So, Prof. Peterson, argues based on a sociological epistemology, that the Bible is truer than true and the only basis for a society that is not tyrannous. Joe Rogan is silent, awestruck.
I immediately think of Vishal Mangalwadi’s *The Book that Made Your World.”
It is factual that the Bible is the foundation of all that is good, free,and prosperous in Western and especially English-speaking culture. It is true that the foundational story of the Exodus shows the way how a people can be without tyranny, and indeed, be a people.
Further, to date, in the history of the planet, it is the only story that offers this.
Given this, what extensions present themselves in terms of guidance for education? True education would be based on and filled with the Bible — or other sources can not be understood. Or evaluated. While we have a government education constructed to make activists at the expense of basic literacy and numeracy, it is no surprise that the education that was always intended to make moral leaders was also the foundation of literacy and numeracy.
Did you not notice that? Literacy to the dawn of history is carried in the Toledoth, the stories in early Genesis. Joseph rose to prominence in Eqypt, as a slave, because he could do accounting. Because his father, a wandering shepherd, taught his sons to ready and calculate.
This is an extraordinary conclusion in a day of decaying and bullying religious secularism, no where more mordant and bullying than in government education. Further, it is extraordinary because the assertion was arrived at through logical deduction and not the obscurantism of dobmatism or belief or personal subjectivism. Indeed, it uses what to date has been the most virulent thrust toward post-modernism and toward Marxism: sociological epistemology. Cogent, clear, rings with truth. Evidential… because it works.
