3. Seeks to annihilate the goddess
and the feminine
Since Scientism clearly rejects the supernatural
dimension and the existence of deities, how does it
seek to annihilate the feminine? The definition of “feminine”
is culturally conditioned. In this respect, Earthfolk explore how Scientism
affirms the Abrahamic approach to
Both reject the Goddess.
In this respect, Scientism shares a core belief and
practice with the Abrahamic tradition.
Despite Genesis chapter one’s “let us”
inference to the existence of gods and goddess, the Abrahamic faith
developed by professing monotheism. There are not only
no goddesses, there are no other gods—and the
one god is male, “Father.”
Scientists and Scientismists focus on
a materialistic, at times on an avowedly atheistic,
modelling of reality. Materialism means that they look for the source
of all explanations in tangible or detectable
physical reality. They explain and interpret using a reductionistic
methodology that seeks to explain the complex as
arising out of the simple. For example,
multi-cell organisms evolve from single-cells, they do not devolve
from complex to simple, from multi-cell to single cell.
In practice, they search
for the Many that makes up the One. While there are times when it is
accepted that "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts,"
the phrase "scientific pursuit of truth"
usually implies a methodological and theoretical mistrust
of any unity, whole or holism as permanent. Every unity, whole or holism
is really a part of something else—a truth that science will eventually
disclose or "discover" given enough time.
In sum, everything can be reduced to ever smaller
parts—atomic, sub-atomic, and so on.
