Mechanistic Apocalypse on the way?


Even if you are not religious and believe the world runs on fundamentally mechanistic principles you need to fear that current global tensions could in fact lead to the type of destruction envisioned by those who hold that an Apocalypse is coming … soon.

Israel could lay waste to the entire Middle east in minutes and it’s unlikely that a broader war with Iran would not bring in the USA and perhaps Europe.

Pakistan and India continue to threaten nuclear exchanges.   And North Korea?   Yikes.

But rather than *prophetic*, I find it  *ironic* that these tensions are more often than not fueled by the recent and rapid rise of thinking and analysis more in line with what was in vogue in 12th century than even the Renaissance, a curious blend of religious fantasy, zealotry, and denial.

Will we as humans pay the ultimate price for our primal notions of how the world works?   Only your primal brain knows for sure.
