    This is projecting our own psyche onto the universe.

    But worse it appeals to the totalitarian impulse.

    And there is absolutely no evidence the universe is an agent.

    So I think we can conclude, you are an agent and the universe is not.

And of course the Nazis perfected the Eugenics Movement of the USA in the Shoah or Holocaust. And Social Darwinism was used by the Fascists in Europe and South America to justify the violation of human rights, torture and murder.

    So a society based on nature would violate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

    Homo sapiens is the only species that is inter-subjective, we are capable of empathy and creativity, quite unlike nature.
    You haven't studied nature have you? You completely misunderstand what I'm saying. I'm talking about people empowering themselves, by discovering their true nature and purpose. You're talking about, well god only knows.

    And animals are capable of creating tools and showing empathy. Not all animals do this. But not all humans are capable of showing empathy either.
    The truth is like a lion. You don't have to defend it. Let it loose. It will defend itself.

    I have studied biology. And I know biology is based on natural selection. And civilized people don't want to live in a society based on natural selection.

    If we understand natural selection, we know it is no model for human society.
