This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

NOTICE:
This Dark Age is now available in paperback on Amazon. The print version is MUCH cleaner than this online version, which is largely unedited and has fallen by the wayside as the project has grown. If you’ve appreciated my writing, please consider leaving a review on the relevant paperback volumes. The print edition also includes new sections (Military History, War Psychology, Dogmatic Theology).

The scriptures as an example of the difference between points of view in the great religions

To reinforce the previous warning, I’ll say that we should not assume that things mean the same thing in different religions. For example, just Hinduism, Christianity, and Islam all have Scriptures, it would be a serious error to assume that in each of them the Scriptures are understood in the same way and used for the purpose that Christianity uses them. What the Bible means to Christianity is something very different from what the Koran means to Muslims, and this is different still from what the Vedic texts mean to Hindus. It is not just the content of the books that differs–it is the significance of the books themselves.
