Click Worldviews in a Nutshell: One to read the previous entry in this Worldviews series.
Brace yourself because, in this post entry, I will employ two atypical devices: sports metaphors and incorrect English.

In my most recent blog entry, I introduced the three major categories of worldviews and assigned each a one-sentence quote.
Today, I will expand the three worldviews a little further, by relating a baseball umpire analogy:
The philosophy of Umpire Number One [above] represents the Pre-Modern Worldview:
“I call ’em as they are!”
The philosophy of Umpire Number Two [above] represents the Modern Worldview:
“I call ’em as I see ’em!”
The philosophy of Umpire Number Three [above] represents the Post-Modern Worldview:
“They ain’t nothin’ till I call ’em!”
And there you have it: The irreducible minimum explanation for worldviews. Painless, wasn’t it?
Master this sports analogy and share it with someone. We will be using it as a foundation for future worldview discussions.
