the eonic model works better on religion than the useless histomat…//Marx and the Prophet – Last Man There

It is remarkable that historical materialism ended up being replaced by traditional religion. The early materialism of the Marx period was so reductionist that it was unable to deal with religion.

One can only recommend adopting the eonic model instead: it gives a completely generalized treatment of all categories: secularism, religion, science, etc, etc…The issue of religion is treated properly by the eonic model even as the question of materialism, spirituality, etc, is transcended in a more general category…..
