Templeton Prize: Earth Day Spiritual Test: Patriarchal vs Primitivist



Spiritual Test for Templeton Foundation: Confront ‘Templeton Prize for Patriarchal AnthroCorpocentric Spirituality’ endorsement of (a) fraud, corruption and discrimination of 2013 Templeton Prize; (b) discrimination against non-patriarchal Ecocentric Primitivist spirituality.

Spiritual Test for Templeton Foundation: Confront ‘Templeton Prize for Patriarchal AnthroCorpocentric Spirituality’ endorsement of (a) fraud, corruption and discrimination of 2013 Templeton Prize; (b) discrimination against non-patriarchal Ecocentric Primitivist spirituality.

Spiritual Test for Templeton Foundation: If the Templeton Prize considers honesty a spiritual concept, should it not rename the Templeton Prize to the ‘Templeton Prize for Taker – Patriarchal AnthroCorpocentric – Spirituality’, considering that (a) All of the recipients for the Templeton Prize, for the past 40 years have been to individuals who are members of, or whose scientific / spirituality endorses, Patriarchal AnthroCorpocentric Religions; (b) Templeton Prize’s endorsement of Patriarchal AnthroCorpocentric Tutu’s TRC Fraud and discrimination against Ecocentric, non-Patriarchal, Primitivist Leaver cultures; clearly shows Templeton’s endorsement of Gender and Ideological Discrimination against Ecocentric non-Patriarchal, Primitivist spirituality?

Princess Areej Ghazi, Stephen Barr, Prof. Russell Cowburn FRS, Gurcharan Das, Matthieu Ricard, Vladimir Shmaliy, Esther Sternberg, Faraneh Vargha-Khadem, Miroslav Volf.

The nomination of the 2013 Templeton Prize was corrupt and fraudulent: Archbishop Desmond Tutu was nominated for the prize by his own biographer, who censored information from the Judges about Tutu’s involvement in, and endorsement of, South Africa’s TRC Fraud, and discrimination against non-patriarchal Ecocentric Primitivist cultures. Tutu’s biographer refused to withdraw the nomination. Templeton Prize Judges also refused to withdraw the award, endorsing Tutu’s TRC Fraud and discrimination against Ecocentric, non-Patriarchal, Primitivist Leaver cultures.

Spiritual Test for Templeton Foundation: ‘Templeton Prize for Patriarchal AnthroCorpocentric Spirituality’

If the Templeton Prize considers honesty a spiritual concept, should it not rename the Templeton Prize to the ‘Templeton Prize for Taker – Patriarchal AnthroCorpocentric – Spirituality’, considering that (a) All of the recipients for the Templeton Prize, for the past 40 years have been to individuals who are members of, or whose spirituality endorses, Patriarchal AnthroCorpocentric Religions; (b) Templeton Prize’s endorsement of Patriarchal AnthroCorpocentric Tutu’s TRC Fraud and discrimination against Ecocentric, non-Patriarchal, Primitivist Leaver cultures; clearly shows Templeton’s endorsement of Gender and Ideological Discrimination against Ecocentric non-Patriarchal, Primitivist spirituality?

Templeton Prize’s endorsement of Gender and Ideological Discrimination against Leaver Ecocentric non-Patriarchal, Primitivist spirituality:

[1] Patriarchy (pa•tri•arch•y):

[1.1] A system of society or government, is Patriarchal to the extent that it regulates (a) the relations between humans, nature and other animals species and (b) the relations between humans amongst themselves, in terms of their gender, culture, ethnic, religious and ideological conflicts; for the (c) almost exclusive benefit of violent Anthropocentric humans and corporations.

[1.2] Put differently a legal, political or social system is Patriarchal to the extent of its (a) failure to provide automatic equal legal personhood and rights to nature and animal and plant species; (b) disregard for the objective and scientific carrying capacity truth of the laws of nature/ecology; and (c) disregard for the laws of human nature; when they contradict the AnthroCorpocentric – breeding and consumption war – objectives of the holders of subjective AnthroCorpocentric Truth.

[2] Taker AnthroCorpocentric Civilization (civ•i•li•za•tion):

[2.1] Derrick Jensen: Civilization and Enlightenment:

“Civilization is a way of life characterized by the growth of cities; and that definition is defensible both linguistically and historically. So what that means is that civilization comes from Civitas which means city. Historically that’s pretty much where civilization starts is the rise of cities. A city is a collection of people, living in numbers large enough to require the importation of resources. A couple of things happen as soon as you require the importation of resources. One is that your way of living can never be sustainable. Because if you require the importation of resources, what that means is that you have denuded the landscape of that particular resource. As your city grows, you will denude an ever larger area. Because by definition you are requiring the importation of resources, which means its not there. Functionally your way of life will never be sustainable. You can talk about sustainability all you want, it won't last. The other thing it means is that your way of life must be based on violence. Because if you require the importation of resources, what that means is that trade will never be sufficiently reliable, because if you require a resource that the next village won't give to you, you will take it, because you require it. Which means we could all become the most enlightened beings, on the entire planet, and it wouldn't matter, the US military would still have to engage in militarism, because if not, how are we going to get access to our oil that is under someone else's land? Psychologically and socially it does not matter, you could have this huge transformation of the heart, and if you still require the importation of resources, what are you going to do about it?”

[2.3] Derrick Jensen Interview Pt3: On [Taker] Science:
“According to scientific culture, power exists only in how you use raw materials -- the more raw materials you use more effectively than anyone else, the more power to you. And science is a potent tool for that. Thats the point of science. .[..]. The very epistemology of this [Taker] culture is based upon domination; such that how we know something is true, is by someone's ability to make matter and energy jump through hoops on command and to predict what will happen and when. .[..]. Are hammerhead sharks better off, because of science? Is plankton better off because of science? Are traditional people's better off because of science? I think the answer is pretty obviously, NO. .[..]. Science is based upon the ability to predict and on objectification.”

“Here's another perspective: If you ask ten thousand scientists if they believe the world was created for human beings, and all evolution existed so that human beings are the apex of evolution. The vast majority of them would probably say 'absolutely not'. Evolution has no point that way. Humans are not the apex of evolution. Its an absurd question and allot of them would laugh. But then when they are done laughing and they go back to work, what would they be doing? If you judge their answers by their actions, instead of by their theory, what you would find is essentially that all of them are working to make the world conform to industrial ends. Science is pernicious, its really harmful and it has been incredibly harmful to the natural world.”

“Science is the latest monotheism really. Catholicism said that outside the church there is no salvation, and science says that outside of science there is no knowledge. Another way to put all this is that monotheism has been the problem. Abrahamaic monotheisms, Christianity, Catholicism and Islam did the heavy lifting. They took the divinity out of nature and put it in heaven. They took the divinity out of this tree, and this dog and this flesh, and to put it somewhere out there. All science did was come along, much later, and turn off the light out there, and remove meaning from the world entirely. You don't have to take my word for this. Once again Richard Dawkins is quite clear that the universe is meaningless. But he also says that we are put here to rise above nature, which is an extraordinary statement because why would you rise up out of something, and who put us here in the first place, when he doesn't believe in any meaning whatsoever. But anyway, science is on the main incredibly harmful. Sure science is able to record that global warming is happening, and sure they are able to study species extinction, but why is global warming and species extinction happening in the first place? .[..]. It doesn't help to study it, unless you stop it. .[..]. Catherine McKinnon says that law is how power organizes. I would say that science is the manual version of that. Law is how power organizes politically and science is how it organizes in physically. And there are other forms of knowledge that are not based on domination, but on relationship, non-mathematical relationship.”

[2.7] Counterpunch (28 Oct 2009): Against Prometheus: An Interview with Derrick Jensen on Science and Technology:

“The stories we are told shape the way we see the world, which shapes the way we experience the world. R.D. Laing once wrote that how we experience the world shapes how we behave in the world. If the world is presented as resources to be exploited, then more than likely, you’re going to exploit the world. For example, if one sees trees as dollar bills, then one will look at trees and treat trees one way; if one sees trees as trees, for what they are – as other beings to be in communion with – then one will see them and treat them another way. Philosophy is the telling of the world a certain way.”

Taker Utilitarian vs. Leaver Spiritual Relationship to Nature: “If you do not perceive the fundamental beingness of others (i.e. nonhuman animals, trees, mountains, rivers, rocks, etc), or in some senses do not even perceive their existence, then nothing I say or write can convince you. Nor will evidence be likely to convince you, since, as already mentioned, you won’t perceive it, or more accurately, won’t allow yourself to perceive it. No matter how well I write, if you have never made love, I cannot adequately describe to you what it feels like to do so. Even moreso, if you insist that no such thing as making love even exists, then I will certainly never be able to adequately explain to you what it feels like. For that matter, I cannot describe the color green to someone who is blind, and who even moreso insists that green does not exist, could never exist; as well as to someone who knows that philosophers from Aristotle to Descartes to Dawkins have conclusively shown that green does not exist, could not exist, has never existed, and will never exist; or to someone who is under the thrall of economic and legal systems (insofar as there is a meaningful difference, since the primary function of this culture’s legal systems is to protect—through laws, police, courts, and prisons—the exploitative activities of the already-wealthy) based so profoundly on green not existing; who cannot acknowledge that this culture would collapse if its members individually and/or collectively perceived this green that cannot be allowed to exist. If I could describe the color green to you, I would do it. I would drive you, as R.D. Laing put it, out of your wretched mind. And you might be able to see the color green. Or someone else could drive you out of your wretched mind. It certainly needn’t be me. I’m not the point. You’re not the point. Your perceived experience isn’t even the point. The point is your wretched mind, and getting out of it. And beyond that, the point then is your experience.”

Leaver’s experience the world personally, emotionally, convivially and reciprocally with other beings, Takers experience the world as a set of objective truths for personal material gain or information, or as protocol to maintain the status quo: “This culture is based on the assumption that all of the world is without volition, is mechanistic, and is therefore predictable. The existence of the willfully unpredictable destroys a foundational assumption of this culture. The existence of the willfully unpredictable also invalidates this culture’s ontology, epistemology, and philosophies, and reveals them for what they are: lies upon which to base this omnicidal system of exploitation, theft, and murder; it’s much easier to exploit, steal from, or murder someone you pretend has no meaningful existence (especially if you have an entire culture’s ontology, epistemology, and philosophy to back you up), indeed, it becomes your right, even your duty (e.g. war, genocide, death squads, mercenaries, etc). The existence of the willfully unpredictable reveals this culture’s governmental and economic systems for what they are as well: means to not only rationalize but enforce systems of exploitation, theft, and murder (e.g., effectively stop Monsanto’s exploitation, theft, and murder, and see how you are treated by governments across the world).”

Difference between indigenous spirituality’s kinship with nonhumans, and absence of a utilitarian worldview over their landbase insofar as they perceived the natural landscape as a matrix of reciprocal relationships to enter into: “In all of my books I’ve emphasized that the fundamental difference between civilized and indigenous ways of being is that for even the most open-minded of the civilized, listening to the natural world is a metaphor. For traditional indigenous peoples it is not a metaphor. It is how you relate with the real world. This culture’s way of life is based on exploitation, domination, theft, and murder. And why? Because it is based on the perceived right of the powerful to take whatever resources they want. If you see yourself as entitled to a resource, and if you’re not willing or incapable of seeing this other as a being with whom you can and should be in relation with, then you’re going to take the resource.”

How scientific philosophy galvanizes the exploitative utilitarian worldview: “Richard Dawkins, the popular scientific philosopher—he’s got almost as many Google hits as Mick fuckin’ Jagger—states that we exist in “a universe of electrons and selfish genes, blind physical forces and genetic replication.” Implying that humans are the only meaningful intelligence on earth, and possibly in the universe, the world then consists of objects to be exploited, not other beings to enter into relationship with. Dawkins also writes: “You won’t find any rhyme or reason in it [the universe], nor any justice. The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but pitiless indifference.” Because the latter scientific assumption posits that nonhumans have no meaningful intelligence, they have nothing to say, to each other or to us. Thus interspecies communication is bunk, no matter who the nonhumans are: animals, plants, rivers, rocks, stars, muses, and so on. Anyone who thinks otherwise, and this is key, is superstitious, that is, delusional, maybe primitive, maybe crazy, maybe childish, maybe just plain stupid. Suddenly science has a stronger hold on one’s belief moreso than any religion. Scientific philosophy is much better at controlling people because if you don’t buy into it, you’re stupid. The fundamental religion of this culture is that of human dominion, and it does not matter so much whether one self-identifies as a Christian, a Capitalist, a Scientist, or just a regular member of this culture, one’s actions will be to promulgate this fundamentalist religion of unbridled entitlement and exploitation. This religion permeates every aspect of this culture.”

Has science provided the world with anything good?:

“That’s a very common question that is asked: Hasn’t science done a lot of good for the world? For the world? No. Show me how the world—the real, physical world, once filled with passenger pigeons, great auks, cod, tuna, salmon, sea mink, lions, great apes, migratory songbirds, forests—is a better place because of science. Science has done far more than facilitate the destruction of the natural world: it has increased this culture’s ability to destroy by many orders of magnitude. We can talk all we want about conservation biology and about the use of science to measure biodiversity, but in the real, physical world the real, physical effects of science on real, living nonhumans has been nothing short of atrocious. Science has been given three hundred years or so to prove itself. And of course three hundred years ago great auks (and fish, and whales) filled the seas, and passenger pigeons and Eskimo curlews filled the skies, and soil was deeper, and native forests still stood. If three hundred years of chainsaws, CFCs, depleted uranium, automobiles, genetic engineering, airplanes, routine international trade, computers, plastics, endocrine disrupters, pesticides, vivisection, internal combustion engines, fellerbunchers, dragline excavators, televisions, cellphones, and nuclear (and conventional) bombs are not enough to convey the picture, then that picture will never be conveyed.”

Without science, there would not be ten times more plastic than phytoplankton in the oceans. The Nazi Holocaust was, as I made clear in The Culture of Make Believe, and as Zygmunt Bauman made clear in Modernity and the Holocaust, a triumph of the modern industrial rationalistic scientific instrumentalist perspective. Global warming, which may end in planetary murder, would not be running rampant without the assistance of science and scientists. Without science there would be no hole in the ozone. Without science and scientists, we would not face the threat of nuclear annihilation. Without science, there would be no industrial civilization, which even without global warming would still be leading to planetary murder. Sure, science brought us television, modern medicine (and modern diseases), and cardboard-tasting strawberries in January, but anyone who would rather have those than a living planet is, well, a typical member of this culture. If it’s the case that evolution happened so that we would come to exist, then it’s pretty damn obvious we’re fucking up whatever we were brought into being to do. How much sense would it make to have all of this evolution take place simply so that the point, the apex, the pinnacle of this evolution can end life on the planet? Talk about the world’s longest and stupidest shaggy dog story.”

[3] Patriarchy’s ‘Civilized’ (War Against Nature & Women) AnthroCorpocentric (corporate human focussed) Spirituality:

“Civilization, very fundamentally, is the history of the domination of nature and of women” – Primitivist, John Zerzan in Patriarchy, Civilization, and the Origins of Gender

“It may, I think, even be argued that Communism in Russia, National Socialism in Germany, and Capitalism and Liberal Democracy in the Western countries are really three forms of the same thing, and that they are all moving by different but parallel paths to the same goal, which is the mechanization of human life and the complete subordination of the individual to the state and to the economic process.” - Christopher Dawson, Religion and the Modern State

[3.1] An in depth introduction into the concepts of primitivism (Leavers) and/or the history of patriarchy’s relationship to totalitarian agriculture civilization, can be found in, among others: John Zerzan: (2012): Future Primitive Revisited; (2010): Origins: A John Zerzan Reader; (2008): Twilight of the Machines; (2002): Running On Emptiness; (1999): Against Civilization (editor); (1994): Future Primitive; (1991): Questioning Technology (co-edited with Alice Carnes); (1999): Elements of Refusal. Richard Heinberg (1995): The Primitivist Critique of Civilization. Daniel Quinn (1992) Ishmael; (1996) The Story of B; (1997) My Ishmael; (2000) Beyond Civilization. Robert McElvaine (2001): Eve's Seed: Masculine Insecurity, Metaphor and the Shaping of History; (2001): Eve's Seed: Biology, the Sexes and the Course of History.

[4] Fundamental Differences between Gender Balanced Primitivism (Leavers) & Masculine Insecurity Patriarchal AnthroCorpocentric Civilization (Takers):

[4.1] Problem Solving: Transparent Listening Leavers vs Perception Management Coercion Takers:

A. Transparent Listening: Every individual deserves to be heard, where ideas are valued on their merit. Reputations are based upon an individual’s commitment to total transparency which includes exposure of individuals and cultural skeletons for public analysis and cultural ownership.

B. Perception Management Coercion: Only individuals who endorse breeding and consumption war socio-political values deserve to be heard; i.e. those with a large following or those with consumptionist materialist status symbols. Reputations are based upon an individual’s capacity for perception management. Their ability to ignore, silence and censor critics.

[4.2] Ecocentric Masculinity Leavers vs AnthroCorpocentric Masculine Insecurity Takers:

A. Ecocentric Masculinity: application of a single human standard for all, irrespective of culture; cultural endorsement for taking personal responsibility for procreation and consumption below carrying capacity, where character and integrity are considered socio-political status symbols.

B. AnthroCorpocentric Masculine Insecurity: political correct application of different standards for men from different cultures, and between men and women; cultural endorsement for breeding and consumption wars as socio-political status symbols.

[4.3] Law of Limited Competition Leavers vs Totalitarian Agriculture Takers:

A. Law of Limited Competition: Agriculture based upon producing enough for survivable needs, enables population control and provision of/sharing of resources to other species to enable their sustainable survival.

B. Totalitarian Agriculture: Agriculture based upon maximizing surpluses, to generate consumption war materialist status, enabling greater population growth, who are used as cannon fodder to conquer new territory and deny other species and groups access to ecological resources for food.
[4.4] Lifestyle Consciousness: Carrying Capacity Leavers vs Breeding & Consumption War Takers:

A. Carrying Capacity: Cultural values which value procreation and consumption practices below carrying capacity.

B. Breeding and Consumption Wars: Cultural values which endorse breeding and consumption wars as socio-political status symbols.

[4.5] See Annexure: Summary: Ecocentric Gender Balanced Primitivist Principles, for additional background to aforementioned principles.

[5] Spiritual Test: Rename Templeton Prize to ‘Templeton Prize for Taker – Patriarchal AnthroCorpocentric -- Spirituality’

[6] Templeton Prize Nomination Procedures:

[6.1] The Templeton Prize’s focus on Taker Patriarchal AnthroCorpocentric spirituality is clearly visible in its nomination procedures.

[6.2] The following information is required from an individual nominating another individual for the Templeton Prize:

The following information is required to complete your nomination:

The nominator's name, organizational affiliation, and valid email address

The candidate's full name, gender, organizational affiliation, and contact information

A detailed narrative explaining why the candidate is worthy of consideration for the Templeton Prize. This narrative can be of any length as long as it demonstrates the candidate's significant contributions to affirming life's spiritual dimension. When writing your Templeton Prize Nomination narrative, please consider the following criteria. These criteria are all equally important aspects of a Nominee's candidacy. However, realistically no single nominee will reflect every dimension noted, but on the whole, the Nomination narrative should reflect the creativity, innovation, rigor and impact of the work of your candidate. Please consider all of the following when writing your Narrative, and to the best of your ability, define how the nominee's work is effective in each of these criteria:

Spiritual Dimensions - How has the individual made exceptional contributions to affirming life's spiritual dimensions, whether through insight, discovery or practical works?

Entrepreneurship - Does the individual capture the full meaning and breadth of being an "entrepreneur of the spirit" - someone who has both explored and then achieved a substantial record of contributions to "spiritual progress" - especially in regard to truly innovative discoveries and then widely influential dissemination?

New Insights regarding the Divine - From any domain of human effort: from science to philosophy - to social science - to theology - and/or to creation of new high-impact organizations - how has the individual demonstrated singular success or breakthroughs with clear evidence of progress in humanity's effort to comprehend the many and diverse manifestations of the Divine?

Spiritual Realities - Does the individual's work clearly represent innovative - theoretical - practical - and enduring impact in accomplishments and communications regarding previously unrecognized dimensions of "Spiritual Realities", including love, forgiveness, gratitude, creativity, infinity, ultimate reality and purpose in the cosmos?

Spiritual Dilemmas in Life - What has the individual done to demonstrate breakthroughs in addressing the timeless spiritual dilemmas of human life through open-minded humility in asking and seeking innovative answers to questions of substance and meaning and the challenging of assumptions?

Nominee's Curriculum Vitae or Biography if Curriculum Vitae not available.

A list of up to five relevant works (essays, book chapters, books, journal articles, lectures, blogs, or websites) that demonstrate the candidate's achievements or discuss the impact of the candidate's contributions to life's spiritual dimension. For those candidates with numerous publications, we ask that the nominator list only the works most relevant to the purpose of the Templeton Prize.

A minimum of 3 (three) and a maximum of 5 (five) References who can speak to the qualifications of the candidate. Please list their names, organizational affiliation, and full contact information, and most importantly, their email addresses. Nominators are strongly advised to contact the list of References submitted and alert them regarding your submission of their name as a Reference. The Templeton Prize office will contact each Reference and ask them to submit a letter of concrete analysis as to the named candidate's significant contributions in any one of several of the listed criteria that strongly pertain to the goals and purposes of the Templeton Prize.

[6.3] Organized religion – i.e. an organizational affiliation – is a Patriarchal Anthropocentric religious concept, based upon patriarchal concepts of domination and the objectification of nature, accumulation of power, socio-political status, etc. Ecocentric and Primitivist religions do not objectify nature, or create corporate or organizational affiliations justifying the objectification of nature, they worship nature and living in harmony with nature; not corporations and power.

[6.4] The language and concepts referred to in the ‘spiritual dimensions’ ‘entrepreneurship’ ‘New Insights regarding the divine’ ‘Spiritual realities’, ‘Spiritual dilemma’s’ paragraphs all reflect a Patriarchal Taker (Civilization) Anthropocentric perspective towards spirituality and life.

[6.5] For example:

A. “organisational affiliation” – endorsement of organized religion, which is a Patriarchal AnthroCorpocentric religious concept. Ecocentric Primitivist spiritual teachers and practitioners do not establish organized religions, for domination, exploitation and conquering purposes.

B. “"entrepreneur of the spirit" - someone who has both explored and then achieved a substantial record of contributions to "spiritual progress" - especially in regard to truly innovative discoveries and then widely influential dissemination?”. Corpratization of spirituality: entrepreneur of the spirit… widely influential dissemination.

C. “creation of new high-impact organisations” – i.e. organisations with a high impact power to exploit raw materials; the more raw materials the corporation uses more effectively than anyone else, the more power – high impact – to it.

[6.6] In fact many of the ‘spiritual problems’ of Takers – crime, war, racism, sexism, political correctness, resource war, scarcity, poverty, unemployment, mental illness, alienation, etc – are a direct result of the Taker Civilization lifestyle; i.e. the adoption of Patriarchal breeding and consumption war values, as the foundation for power and domination, by means of socio-political status or economic, political or military coercion.

A.

His work assigns value not only to human beings but also to plants, animals, species, and ecosystems as core issues of theological and scientific concern.

B. Leaver Primitivists: Holmes Rolston III’s ‘environmental ethics’ ‘scientific spirituality’ endorses Taker Masculine Insecurity Patriarchal AnthroCorpocentric Civilization values of: Perception Management Coercion, Masculine Insecurity, Totalitarian Agriculture, and Breeding and Consumption War Lifestyle Consciousness, with an ‘environmental ethics’ twist. I was not able to find any evidence of Rolston advocating a return to an Ecocentric masculinity, the termination of totalitarian agriculture industrial civilization, or the adoption of jurisprudence limiting procreation and consumption to below carrying capacity levels. The value assigned to nature, plants, animals and ecosystems appears to stem from a philosophical perspective of taking care of it as human’s property; for the benefit of humans; not from recognizing the spirit of plants, and nature, and relating to those spirits.

C. In Environmental Ethics he writes: “Environmental ethics remained unknown until the mid-1970s… Environmental ethics applies ethics to the environment, analogously to ethics applied to BUSINESS (chapter 19), MEDICINE (chapter 17), engineering, LAW (chapter 13) and technology. Such humanist applications may be challenging: limiting population growth or development, questioning consumerism and the distribution of wealth, advocating the inclusion of women or aboriginal peoples, or fearing global warming. Environmental quality is necessary for quality of human life”; ignoring environmental spirituality that has existed for millions of years. Environmental ethics is thus an anthropocentric concept, where humans are still the center of the universe, but simply realize they need to take better care of their objectified property: nature, for their own personal profits and benefits.

D. I have not been able to read all of Rolston’s work, but Rolston’s ‘environmental ethics’ does not appear to endorse an Ecocentric spirituality; where nature is revered as the ‘spirit’ or ‘source of life’. Instead it remains Anthropocentric, where humans are the superior being, and choose to behave ethically towards nature, as its inferior object, by treating it ‘ethically’ for the ‘sustainable development’ (an oxymoron) profits of humans. Nature still remains anthropocentric human’s object. Human is simply choosing to feel more self righteous about himself, by choosing to treat his ecological objects with more ‘respect’; for his own ultimate benefit and profit.

A. Taker Templeton’s: Charles H. Townes, Professor in the Graduate School at the University of California, Berkeley, shared the 1964 Nobel Prize in Physics. His 1966 article, “The Convergence of Science and Religion,” established him as a voice seeking commonality between the two disciplines. He describes his 1951 discovery of the principles of the maser—while sitting on a park bench—as a “revelation” and an example of the interplay between the “how” and “why” of science and religion.

A. Taker Templeton’s: Charles Taylor, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at McGill University, argues that problems such as violence and bigotry can be solved only by considering both their secular and spiritual dimensions. He suggests that depending wholly on secularized viewpoints leads to fragmented reasoning and prevents crucial insights that might help a global community that is increasingly exposed to clashes of culture, morality, nationality, and religion.

A. Taker Templeton’s: Bernard d’Espagnat is a French physicist and philosopher of science whose explorations of the philosophical implications of quantum physics have opened new vistas on the definition of reality and the potential limits of knowable science. Much of his work centers on what he calls “veiled reality,” a hidden yet unifying domain beneath what is perceived as time, space, matter, and energy – concepts challenged by quantum physics as possible mere appearances.

B. Leaver Primitivists: Bernard d’Espagnat’s ‘scientific spirituality’ endorsed Taker Masculine Insecurity Patriarchal AnthroCorpocentric Civilization values of: Perception Management Coercion, Masculine Insecurity, Totalitarian Agriculture, and Breeding and Consumption War Lifestyle Consciousness.

a. The Great Deception: “So much for Shangri-la and a “holy” political leader. A Great Deception is a compelling account of Tibetan history and the activities of the current 14th Dalai Lama that stand in shocking contrast to popular perceptions. The aims of this book are religious – to end the Dalai Lama’s illegal ban on a mainstream Buddhist practice.”

**********************

Nomination of the 2013 Templeton Prize was corrupt, fraudulent and discriminatory

[8] Professor Steven D. Gish: Desmond Tutu’s Biographer:

[8.1] Auburn University describes Prof Gish as follows:
Originally from Iowa, Dr. Steven Gish joined the Department of History in 1997. He specializes in African history and conducts research on modern South African history. Among his publications are Cultures of the World - Ethiopia (Marshall Cavendish, 1996) and Alfred B. Xuma: African, American, South African (New York University Press and Macmillan, 2000). Most recently, he has published Desmond Tutu: A Biography (Greenwood Press, 2004).

[9] Nomination of Desmond Tutu by Steven D. Gish:

[9.1] According to the Templeton Foundation, the person who nominated Archbishop Desmond Tutu, was Steven D. Gish, Professor of History at Auburn University in Montgomery, Alabama.

"To borrow Sir John Templeton's words, Archbishop Desmond Tutu is a true 'entrepreneur of the spirit,' said Steven D. Gish, Professor of History at Auburn University in Montgomery, Alabama, in his letter of recommendation to the prize judges. "With his unfailing faith in 'God's dream,' he embodies the best instincts of us all."

[9.2] The Templeton Foundation do not reveal that Dr. Gish is also Archbishop Tutu’s biographer.

[9.3] The only article I could find which mentions that Gish is both Tutu biographer, as well as his nominator for the Templeton Prize, was from a newspaper in Alabama: Auburn University prof's nomination hands Bishop Desmond Tutu the Templeton Prize: “HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – Auburn University Professor Steven Gish, who has written a biography of Bishop Desmond Tutu, successfully nominated Tutu for the $1.7 million Templeton Prize.”

[10] Tutu Receives 2013 Templeton Prize Award:

[10.1] Taker Templeton’s: Desmond Tutu rose to world prominence with his stalwart - and successful - opposition to South Africa's apartheid regime. After Nelson Mandela's release from prison in 1990 and subsequent election as president in the country's first multi-ethnic democratic elections, Tutu chaired the Truth and Reconciliation Commission employing a revolutionary and relentless policy of confession, forgiveness and resolution that helped shepherd his nation from institutionalized racial repression toward an egalitarian democracy. His deep faith and commitment to prayer and worship provides the foundation for his message of love and forgiveness, which has helped to liberate people around the world.

[11] TRC Fraud Correspondence to Templeton Prize Judges, Tutu and Gish:

[11.1] 04 April 2013, I submitted to Archbishop Desmond Tutu, copied to Templeton Prize admin and Judges: Questions to Archbishop Tutu; or if unanswered by Tutu and Prize Upheld by Templeton Prize Judges; (ii) Congratulations on Receipt of the Multinational Corporate Resource and Cultural Imperialists Templeton Prize for excellence in House Nigger subservience to getting rid of Boer Anti-Imperialists, and making SA safe for ‘Compulsive Developmentism’ Imperialists (i) cultural colonization of indigenous cultures, and (ii) resource plundering.

Questions to Archbishop Desmond Tutu:

1. Please clarify in writing whether you believe the Templeton Judges are aware of the following Radical Honoursty TRC Fraud Fact Censored by Mandela, Tutu, ANC and Anti-Apartheid Movement?

2. If the Templeton Judges are not aware of the following Radical Honoursty TRC Fraud Fact Censored by Mandela, Tutu, ANC and Anti-Apartheid Movement, why are they ignorant of them?

3. If you (a) continue your policy of endorsing the censorship of the Radical Honoursty TRC Fraud Fact Censored by Mandela, Tutu, ANC and Anti-Apartheid Movement, by refusing to transparently inform the Templeton Judges why you endorse the Anti-Apartheid movement and Constitutional Courts censorship of Radical Honoursty culture allegations of TRC Fraud; and (b) the Templeton Judges endorse your lack of honour and actions of censorship of your involvement in TRC Fraud; we could fairly conclude that (c) You have been awarded the Multinational Corporate Resource and Cultural Imperialists Templeton Prize for excellence in House Nigger subservience to getting rid of Boer Anti-Imperialists, and making SA safe for ‘Compulsive Developmentism’ Imperialists (i) cultural colonization of indigenous cultures, and (ii) resource plundering?

Radical Honoursty TRC Fraud Fact Censored by Mandela, Tutu, ANC and Anti-Apartheid Movement: Corrupt Censorship by SA Constitutional Court of Radical Honoursty culture’s Application for Review of South Africa’s TRC Fraud:

Mandela, Tutu, the ANC & Anti-Apartheid movement have censored and silenced the only South African who – for the past 12 years – has exposed South Africa’s Anthropocentric and Ideologically biased TRC Fraud, and advocated on behalf of a brutally honest sincere and ecologically and scientifically credible Truth and Reconciliation Commission, focussed on exposing the underlying psychological, cultural, racial, Compulsive Development and Scarcity induced factors contributing to Apartheid’s Political violence.

[11.2] 05 April 2013, I submitted to Archbishop Tutu and Templeton Prize Judges: President Zuma urges Archbishop Tutu to continue ANC, Anti-Apartheid Movements Censorship of their TRC Fraud.; Tutu’s Ultimate Spiritual Test.

The Ultimate Opportunity to Test your House Nigga Commitment to Jesus vs. Pharisee Values of ‘Love and Forgiveness’.

• Should you stand for Truth, Transparency and scientific based root cause problem solving?

• Should you find yourself a spiritual backbone to examine the evidence for South Africa’s Anthropocentric and Ideologically biased TRC Fraud?

• Should you advocate on behalf of a brutally honest sincere and ecologically and scientifically credible Truth and Reconciliation Commission, focussed on exposing the underlying psychological, cultural, racial, Compulsive Development and Scarcity induced factors contributing to Apartheid’s Political violence?

Only if your Spiritual convictions are an unswerving commitment to unbiased and unequivocal truth, 100 % transparency with fuck all concern about whose skeletons are being exposed, and scientific based root cause problem solving!

[11.3] 11 April 2013 I submitted to Prof. Steven Gish, Archbishop Tutu and Templeton Prize Judges: Radical Honoursty Culture and TYGAE Request for Withdrawal of your Nomination of Desmond Tutu as Recipient of Templeton Prize, due to your (a) biographer conflict of interest, and (b) failure to provide the evidence of Archbishop Tutu’s involvement in the cover-up and censorship of South Africa’s TRC Fraud.

*********************

[12] Relief Requested:

[12.1] Amend the ‘Templeton Prize’ to the ‘Templeton Prize for Taker – Patriarchal AnthroCorpocentric – Spirituality’; to accurately reflect the Patriarchal AnthroCorpocentric forms of spirituality Templeton endorses.

[12.2] Withdraw the 2013 Templeton Prize from Archbishop Desmond Tutu for his (i) conflict of interest nomination, and (ii) involvement in, and endorsement of, South Africa’s TRC Fraud, and discrimination against non-patriarchal Ecocentric Primitivist cultures.

Dated at George, South Africa: 22 April 2013: Earth Day.
