Here's Another Fine Myth You Got Us Into....
Evolutionary Metaphysics means “to contemplate the existence of the universe in light of the theory of evolution”.
Natural evolution depends on random mutation, and some people believe this proves that consciousness has no higher purpose. According to this book, this might be true, but there are other important concepts that need to be considered before committing to any particular belief about our existence.
Throughout history and still today, the vast majority of people have been conditioned to believe in religious myths and philosophical ideals that may seem very real but which in fact have no basis in reality (Myth of the Given).
This (mostly online) book, Shattering The Sacred Myths, from the Academy of Evolutionary Metaphysics, attempts to explain why these myths and misconceptions are still so popular. And it will try to convince you not to commit to any belief about our existence that cannot be proven beyond doubt.
