Jordan Peterson asks Matt Dillahunty in their debate, or dialogue, why don’t atheists contend with the major philosophical and theological sources. He gives an expected answer, which instead of pouting about, should be listened to, regarding evidence of the supernatural.
Matt Dillahunty to Jordan Peterson: “I think this gets basically to the same point I was talking about before. The thing that you’re objecting to it seems, is that many of us don’t want to address the aspects of religion, you find value in because we only focused on (…) a scientific skepticism perspective (…) are there valid and sound arguments that would lead one to conclude that a God exists. My answer so far to this seems to be no.”
“Science can’t confirm the supernatural. We are blocked, until someone demonstrates a mechanism with which we can explore and confirm the existence of the supernatural and then confirm that it actually can impact the natural world, we’re stuck.”
Matt Dillahunty is right, despite the fact Jordan Peterson also has a point, about Atheists not engaging with the necessary deep material. What Matt Dillahunty says goes for us too, despite the occult view on God. “We reject the idea of a personal, or an extra-cosmic and anthropomorphic God, who is but the gigantic shadow of man, and not of man at his best, either. The God of theology, we say – and prove it – is a bundle of contradictions and a logical impossibility. Therefore, we will have nothing to do with him….”—Helena P. Blavatsky, The Key to Theosophy, pg. 61.
What he is asking is something Theologians (Theology, dominated by the exoteric religions) cannot do, since they reject Occultism and the esoteric lineages, outright forbid it, and have attacked the very possible solutions to their problems and logic, since the solidification of their institutions, power, and creed. Common Religion and Theology is not in the business of truth and fact-finding, though it may pretend to be. This must be even said to any contemporary association claiming to follow the example of those ancient Neo-Platonists, Renaissance Occultists, etc.
In the usual way the internet works, some argue, that Jordan Peterson destroyed Matt Dillahunty.
