BOOKS ON RELIGION
Behind the Ritual Mask
When an entrenched, anti-reason culture is presented with new ideas that challenge its fundamental premises, it relies on the power of what is taken as knowledge in order to defend itself. Indeed, when corrupt ideas are accepted as knowledge, as firm, people will not readily accept new, better ideas. In fact, those new ideas will be seen as false by many people because the entrenched ideas have a feeling of being obvious. As I will show, rationalism, faith and collectivism will take on the power of a self-imposed cultural dictatorship, a non-reception system that blocks new ideas and prevents them from coming to the fore.
In this book we will explore a new field called pre-philosophy which emerged out of pre-historical times to become religion and modern philosophy.
