Through the UN to the Omega Point

Here’s an account of the thought of the French Jesuit, paleontologist, heresiarch and general space cadet Pierre Teilhard de Chardin that makes it a bit clearer why his evolutionary theology appeals so much to so many.

The EU and UN become in effect God at the current stage of his presence in the world.
