10:35 “I don’t think you can be a sincere pagan anymore.” ‘Pagans’ want to act out their sexual impulses without any guilt. “You’re going to say the guilt came from Christianity, so you become an enemy of Christianity.” “I don’t see any sincerity in this whatsoever,” because people know about Jesus and God now. “You can’t pretend you don’t know things.”
33:45 Plato and Aristotle’s forms explained
38:50 ~”The world can’t create itself out of nothing because it would have to exist before it existed.”
48:45 “The evil fruit of William of Ockham was Martin Luther, which was an attack on reason, which the west has never recovered from. Hagel is an example of what I’m talking about. He succumbed to that irrationality for the same reason Luther did: couldn’t control his passions. And instead of saying ‘I’m sorry,’ he said ‘I’m going to make wrong right,’ and that is the unforgivable sin. And we’re still living with the consequence of that. I discuss all of this in my book, ‘Logos Rising.'”
50:00 Jones sees Logos rising since: “The Protestant version of Christianity was doomed to expire [I would agree, if we’re meaning Luther’s invention that we don’t have to overcome sin by God’s grace – ed.]. Its shelf life ran out after about 500 years. And so in the year 2000, this Lutheran church was disestablished as the official church of Sweden. And at that point, you have the rise of these neopagan surrogates.”
50:45 Hitler tried to unite Germany under paganism.
51:00 Tolkien got the idea of the ring from Wagner, but missed a main point. Jones believes Wagner meant the rheingold to refer to usury which enslaved people, privatizing the wealth of a nation. Talmudic.
55:15 “Capitalism is state sponsored usury.”
