    That was terribly low effort bait.

    Can we go back to hearing from people who think Jordan Peterson is anything other than a paranoid fantasist and unironically see Joe Rogan as an intellectual heavy weight?

    How does Jordan Peterson think post-modernists are somehow creating a meta-narrative, does he say it because he doesn't know what post modernism is or does he just hope his reactionary audience don't know what it is?

    Me neither.

    But knowing what post modernism is I also wouldn't claim it is trying to craft a meta narrative to destroy western civilization using blue haired college lesbians.

    So Peterson is either an idiot, or creates content pandering to other idiots because he likes his spot in the limelight. And since he is a college professor I can't imaging he's a complete idiot.

    If you actually listen to his lectures on the subject he clearly explains not only what post modernism is, but also the core principle underlying it. The idea that there are an infinite number of ways something can be interpreted, and that while a valid discovery it isn't fit for the use it now is being applied since any creature or AI needs to narrow the number of interpretations to something managable and useful in order to be able to act in the world.

    Also he clearly delineates how we got from marxism to post-modernism to blue haired college lesbians out to destroy western civilization.

    Deny yourself his lectures and you will remain less.

    His biblical series being the one thing that has completely changed my view of religion.

    It actually explains a lot if Jordan Peterson of all people has changed your viewpoint on anything.

    He debated Sam Harris once.

    He has done a podcast with Sam Harris twice.

    BTW that is exactly the kind of intellectual arrogance that thanks to him I've managed to discard.

    I don't understand.... Haven't you guys been expecting a woman doctor for the past three doctors? Or is it required to act angry whenever a new doctor is picked?

    The least shocking thing anybody on these forums has posted is Rak admitting he dismisses arguments and expertise that disagrees with him as 'intellectual arrogance'.
