It is very interesting that Malcolm has taken it upon himself to push his cult hero Teilhard de Chardin whilst allowing no criticism of this man’s heretcal writings and views. Now if this is what Chalcedon is going to allow at AATW there is no longer any reason to express critiques or evaluations of views in the comment boxes; for it is obvious that Malcolm wants to scrub information that reflects poorly on Teilhard and equally on himself. The following 2 things are certain:
- That his cult leader Teilhard’s orthodoxy was roundly disputed in the comment boxes of his 3 posts by him and all have been summarily disposed.
- That his response to criticism of Teilhard’s new age works were met with ad hominems, insults and crude responses which is presummably another reason why they were deleted. As to which has more weight in his reason to do this would be speculation so I will give them both equal weight.
Today’s post as well, with my two comments and links was deleted and then reposted without the comments.
Progressive liberals are well known for the same tactics. For it seems that they cannot deal with anyone who does not agree with them, praise them or gush over their infallible right thinking. They wish to change history, rewrite history or burn history so that only their narrative remains.
Unless Chalcedon puts an end to this fascist reaction, all we will have left is a one-sided view that allows no dissent. If that is what is wanted I will not even read what is written here much less respond. This is worse than fake news it is contrived propaganda that is edited to raise the writer’s esteem and to diminish any opposition to the writer’s held belief.
I think Malcolm should rename this last entry: Breaking Wind instead of Breaking Shells. This is an insult to those who participate on this blog.
So that it is not lost on those who think the Catholic Church is OK with Teilhard let me resurrect some links for those who missed them after Malcolm deleted them:
TEILHARD DE CHARDIN
To today’s post by Malcolm:
Is your best defense of Teilhard the testimony of your housecat?
“Some of the traditions which flow into New Age are: ancient Egyptian occult practices, Cabbalism, early Christian gnosticism, Sufism, the lore of the Druids, Celtic Christianity, mediaeval alchemy, Renaissance hermeticism, Zen Buddhism, Yoga and so on.(15)”
(15)In late 1977, Marilyn Ferguson sent a questionnaire to 210 “persons engaged in social transformation”, whom she also calls “Aquarian Conspirators”. The following is interesting: “When respondents were asked to name individuals whose ideas had influenced them, either through personal contact or through their writings, those most often named, in order of frequency, were Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, C.G. Jung, Abraham Maslow, Carl Rogers, Aldous Huxley, Robert Assagioli, and J. Krishnamurti. “Others frequently mentioned: Paul Tillich, Hermann Hesse, Alfred North Whitehead, Martin Buber, Ruth Benedict, Margaret Mead, Gregory Bateson, Tarthang Tulku, Alan Watts, Sri Aurobindo, Swami Muktananda, D.T. Suzuki, Thomas Merton, Willis Harman, Kenneth Boulding, Elise Boulding, Erich Fromm, Marshall McLuhan, Buckminster Fuller, Frederic Spiegelberg, Alfred Korzybski, Heinz von Foerster, John Lilly, Werner Erhard, Oscar Ichazo, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Joseph Chilton Pearce, Karl Pribram, Gardner Murphy, and Albert Einstein”: The Aquarian Conspiracy. Personal and Social Transformation in Our Time, Los Angeles (Tarcher) 1980, p. 50 (note 1) and p. 434. “ __ PONTIFICAL COUNCIL FOR CULTURE, PONTIFICAL COUNCIL FOR INTERRELIGIOUS DIALOGUE, JESUS CHRIST THE BEARER OF THE WATER OF LIFE A Christian reflection on the “New Age”
Note: the first and most mentioned person of the “Aquarian Conspiritors” among the most notable influences to this New Ageism is Teilhard. I’ll gladly stick to the teachings of the Catholic Faith and not jettison Her truths for an ‘outsider” which is code for one who is outside the teachings of the Church.
