“Logos is always rising, no matter how it seems at any particular moment in time.”
Those who use their extraordinarily concentrated wealth/influence to curate today’s prevailing, mainstream culture would have you believe these are the words of a hateful man.
Two years ago, I discovered this same man on YouTube. At that point in my life, I didn’t realize there existed a logical way to approach the existence of God. Whether I wasn’t exposed to it at all or I had been and I wasn’t open to it, I’m still pondering to this day. But the novel Logos Rising: A History of Ultimate Reality summarizes the key points I learned from Dr. Jones at that time and much MUCH more. To summarize in a phrase: “that which is cannot come from that which is not, nor can that which is bring itself into existence because it would have to exist before it existed.” It also explains in exceptional detail the personal factors which led key figures in history to attempt to suppress the cultural influence of religion, metaphysics, and the natural law (logos).
Logos Rising is above all else a history book.
In my opinion, it is one that should be required reading on the subject of history. It certainly will be in the case of my children. Besides the immense educational value though, the way Dr. Jones tracks the concept of logos through history is empowering. It helps to assign true meaning to each time period and goes beyond the simply informational nature of most history books. And the importance of this empowerment at this point in history also cannot be understated, specifically for its message to my generation in particular.
“Logos is now rising among the most sexually confused generation in human history, in what Hegel would refer to as the cunning of reason, because chaos creates a need for logos…”
As mentioned, I am the generation Dr. Jones refers to in this passage. It is possible he even wrote this with young men like myself in mind. I am not alone in having proudly reported my progress on the subject in comment messages. Two years ago my life changed forever with the rising of logos. Shortly after addressing the “chaos” he refers to in my own life, I met the love of my life. Not a week before finishing this book I proposed to her and we are now happily engaged to be married. As Dr. Jones says: logos truly is rising.
Dr. Jones helped me find God and played a key role in shining the light on how to attain a good, ordered life. At the same time, his various works have been banned by Amazon, YouTube, and the virtual reality that is social media. Taking those things together, the conflict of logos and anti-logos should be perfectly clear. I highly recommend you buy this book at Fidelity Press to grasp the full scope of this struggle from the beginning of everything to our current time.
