The nihilist critique of monism

This page is unfinished. It may be a mere placeholder in the book outline. Or, the text below (if any) may be a summary, or a discussion of what the page will say, or a partial or rough draft.

The nihilist critique of monist eternalism is that it is factually false.

Although this critique is correct, it has recently become decreasingly effective. Widespread skepticism about the authority of science, and increasing acceptance of the view that “all beliefs are equally valid,” allow people to dismiss factual accuracy as irrelevant to spiritual truth.

General explanation: Meaningness is a hypertext book (in progress), plus a “metablog” that comments on it. The book begins with an appetizer. Alternatively, you might like to look at its table of contents, or some other starting points. Classification of pages by topics supplements the book and metablog structures. Terms with dotted underlining (example: meaningness) show a definition if you click on them. Pages marked with ⚒ are still under construction. Copyright ©2010–2017 David Chapman.
