This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

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).

Where is the devil in man?

Body, soul, spirit. Which of these is ‘evil’? It is not the body, for matter is neither good nor evil, and those who associate ‘the body’ as such with sin are attributing a moral dimension to that which cannot possess it, for evil is something that must be accomplished, and matter is only the means of accomplishing acts, whether for good or for evil. We can also safely say that the spirit cannot play the part of devil, for the spirit is as we have said man’s divinity, the thing veiled by sin, but which cannot be the source of sin. This leaves us with only one choice which is at once obvious and uncomfortable: the soul is that part of man which must be equated with the Devil.
