I am a minister in the Christian Reformed Church. I have a YouTube channel where I do commentary on religion, theology, belief, and thought leaders like Jordan Peterson, Eric and Bret Weinstein, the IDW and anything else I find interesting. I also have conversations with many in my audience.
From Bret Weinstein's Metaphorical Truth to Charles Eisenstein's Control and Myth
Bret Weinstein offered his idea of "metaphorical truth" as being something of a useful fiction. He contrasted it with the "literal". I think this framework files not on the metaphorical side but on the imagined "literalism". Why? Because the world is stranger than we think. Persons are not what we imagine and they might be persons all the way up. How exactly? Look at the COVID conspiracies. Something conspires to keep this world as it us but they aren't human. How can we talk about them? Pulling together lots of my ideas here.
