At a time when theories of evolution are under renewed controversy, discussion is hampered by the remoteness of the phenomenon of evolution, and the use of indirect inference to speculate about deep time. Adherents of Darwinism often defend dogmatic versions of the theory that have been questioned since the first reviewers of Origin of Species. Now Darwinism is under siege from the Intelligent Design movement, threatening the school system. The attempt to hijack the debate using long discredited arguments by design tends to make Darwinists close ranks around their flawed science. The debate is deadlocked by the rigidity of both parties, evidence of fixed agendas, and metaphysical presumptions. A new approach is needed. The study of history itself holds the clue if we can find it. We live in the first generations with enough historical data to detect a pattern of Universal History. The discovery of this pattern, the Eonic Effect, uncovers the evidence for a deep structure resembling punctuated equilibrium in world history itself. The study of history and evolution together shows us something we had missed and allows us to infer the existence of non-random evolution in the emergence of man. Darwinian theory suffers from low evidence density. The Eonic Effect is the only data we have at high evidence density of evolution as a process in real time, and this transforms our views completely. We see the real evolution of man as the Great Transition, the human passage from evolution to history, in the chronicle of the once and future Origin of the Species, Man. Website: The Eonic Effect

From the Author:

From the Preface: This is the third revised edition of World History And The Eonic Effect, the self-published/Internet book and underground theoretical self-defense kit in relation to the Darwinian paradigm. The basic text has been extensively rewritten, even as the basic argument has remained the same. There is much new material and it has been reorganized to show a more integrated structure, with a few changes in the terminology of the eonic model. The basic model has remained stable over three editions, and that leaves the author with increased confidence in the method and demonstration.

From the Inside Flap:

Our prime objective is to show that there exists a non-random pattern in the structure of world history. The implications of this discovery are revolutionary and demand a new approach to the question of a science of history. This study uses a new method of periodization to unravel this 'eonic effect'. Historical directionality is a demonstrable feature of this history, and by a simple photo finish argument we can challenge standard views of the descent of man. The book develops an extensive methodology and deals with issues and paradigms of evolution, complex systems, philosophies of Universal History, including Kant's, the effect of ideology on theory, the Oedipus Effect of Karl Popper, historical inevitability and the 'end of history' of Hegel, Zoroastrianism, Biblical Criticism, the enigma of the Old Testament, the nature of religious evolution, the theories of Spengler and Toynbee, Karl Jaspers on the Axial Age, and much else.
