My guest this week is Fr. Deacon Ananias Sorem, PhD. He is CEO, Founder, and President of Patristic Faith. Fr. Deacon is an Orthodox apologist and teaches Philosophy at Fullerton College and Carroll College. He is the author of several articles and peer-reviewed papers, including: "Searle, Materialism, and the Mind-Body Problem", "Gnostic Scientism and Technocratic Totalitarianism", "An Orthodox Approach to the Dangers of Modernity and Technology", and "An Orthodox Theory of Knowledge: The Epistemological and Apologetic Methods of the Church Fathers". He is also known for his YouTube channel, the Norwegian Nous, where he provides content on theology, apologetics, logic, and philosophy.

In this episode, we discuss the scientism that really became the main cultural "religion" being pushed over 2020 and 2021. The cult-like tactics being used harken back to Gnosticism, and Fr. Deacon details where this came from and how we can avoid the snares of scientism.
