Worldviews in a Nutshell: Two

Dear Readers, 

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.

Coram Deo,

Margot
