It is exceedingly rare for this site to endorse a particular book, except under compelling circumstances. Its essence must play a part in illuminating pressing western challenges through historical accuracy, offering ameliorating strategic imperatives in the process. Only several such book releases hit said home runs. And there are less than a handful of scholars – throughout the west – who are qualified to render a verdict via attendant prescriptive policies; to remedy/rectify the catastrophic challenges facing America and protect its place as the leader of the free world. Emphasis on free.
But before the reader becomes acquainted with the latest recommendation – duly described in Amazon’s sidebar – recall this scholar’s previous contributions:
While many scholars, let alone average Americans, still wonder whether America is even at war, Prof Paul Eidelberg is hardly in denial, and he even posits that a Fourth World War is in the offing. Yes, a fourth!
Without any doublespeak, the “take no prisoners” prof calls it like it is, forewarning of the coming American collapse. As a former officer in the USAF, surely his strategic assessment is more than painful. It is what it is.
At the end of this American death dance freedom of speech’s evisceration has been a main casualty, but it couldn’t have come about sans its collision course with moral relativism and historicism. The above links are just appetizers to his political acumen.
Lest anyone believes that all academics are equal, and that cerebral smarts is a guarantee against stupidity – say what? – think again. NOTHING could be further from the truth…another gem from the good prof, as he takes a physicist – no less – to the (mental) wood shed.
A Book Based on “Nothing”
Lawrence M. Krauss is a theoretical physicist. His book, A Universe from Nothing, makes nonsense of religion and theology, of which he knows “nothing”—excuse the pun.
In the Preface of his book, Krauss acknowledges his indebtedness to others. He mentions one person who “tragically passed away.” Toward another he expresses his “humbleness”, and of whom he will “remain in awe.” Krauss seems to be oblivious that the words he uses to express his gratitude and feelings derive from the religious tradition which he scorns or deems irrelevant. His religion is scientism, the creed of crippled pedestrians or of what Ortega called “mass men.” Krauss therefore ignores Einstein’s famous remark, “science without religion is lame.”
The Afterword of Krauss’ book was written by Richard Dawkins, another (half-educated) atheist, who regards religion as pernicious, but seems unaware that 56 million human beings were murdered in just a few years by the leading atheists of the 20th century, Mao Zedong and Hitler.
In further proof that great learning and great stupidity go well together under the same hat, Dawkins, an English academic, seems oblivious that were it not for Christian America, he would be living under the Third Reich. Perhaps this may also be said of Lawrence Krauss, who obscures the difference between Zeus and the God of Israel and thus reveals himself as a neo-pagan. I say “neo-pagan” because those who believed in Zeus believed in a superior being, whereas Krauss, judging from his book, believes in “nothing.”

This link is merely for reference purposes, this blog does NOT endorse its idiotic conclusions. Really. For if a theoretical physicist can twist his scientific mind into knots, in order to conform to his pre-conceived revulsion against religion, then how reliable are his scientific formulations/proofs to begin with, as he postulates NOTHING? Climate changers have been known to pervert said scientific principles as well, in the ignoble pursuit of leftism. Exactly. Ideology uber alles. Academic whores, pursuing “science” via taxpayer public funding. Phew.
Most significantly, this blog’s close association with Prof Paul Eidelberg is accurately noted within the following commentary and its embedded groundbreaking policy paper, ‘Islam and Blood’. It is mandatory reading. Self explanatory.
