    The Bible, according to Jordan Peterson, a world-renowned Canadian psychologist, is “far more than merely true; it’s the bedrock of Western civilisation.”

    On Tuesday, Peterson went on “The Joe Rogan Experience,” where he lamented that “the culture is melting” while discussing his visit to the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C., as well as his thoughts on society.

    “Roughly speaking, we have a bedrock of agreement,” he said. “That’s the Bible, by the way.

    As he traveled through the museum, Peterson explained how he got to this insight, observing that one floor is dedicated to the “history of the book.”

    “For a long time, there was literally just one book, and that book was the Bible,” he explained. After a while, “all sorts of books that anyone could buy” appeared, he continued, emphasizing that “all those publications in some manner developed out of one underlying book [the Bible].”

    Later in the conversation, Peterson discussed Western civilisation in further depth, defining “basic texts” as “the texts on which most other texts are based.” Before naming the Bible as the ultimate source of all “linguistic output,” he highlighted the work of William Shakespeare as one of numerous “texts that affected more other texts.”

    “It’s not that the Bible isn’t accurate. It’s the fact that the Bible is a prerequisite for the revelation of truth, making it far more than just true. It’s an other kind of truth altogether. This, I believe, is not simply literally the case. In fact, I don’t believe it could be any other way. It’s the only way we’ll be able to overcome the perception problem.”

    Peterson talked about the decline of Western civilization throughout his appearance on the podcast. He singled out gender fixation as a sign of civilizational collapse, drawing the wrath of Media Matters, a far-left progressive activist group that routinely demands that advertisers boycott conservative news broadcasters.

    The conversation about gender began when Rogan brought up remarks by Douglas Murray, associate editor of The Spectator and author of The Madness of Crowds, who also contends that civilization is collapsing. Rogan noted that in a previous episode of his show, Murray observed that when societies start collapsing, “they become obsessed with gender.”

    “He was saying that you could trace it back to the ancient Romans, the Greeks,” Rogan continued.

    Peterson expanded on that assertion, contending that “It’s not so much an obsession with gender, it’s a disintegration of categories as a precursor … like so it’s a marker for — if categories just dissolve, especially fundamental ones, the culture is dissolving.” From there, he and Rogan began to engage in the conversation about the Bible.

    At another point in the podcast, Rogan asked Peterson: “What do you think it means when someone is so attracted to the idea that they were born in the wrong body … that they’re willing to go through surgery?”

    Peterson responded by saying, “A lot of the people who are manifesting serious issues with gender identity are on the autistic spectrum.” He further likened the widespread phenomenon of people identifying as transgender to the “satanic ritual abuse allegations that emerged in daycares in the 1980s.” Peterson attributed the aforementioned hysteria to “women going into the workforce en masse, leaving their children with strangers and starting to have pathological fantasies about it, especially if they were borderline schizophrenic.”

    “Those fantasies propagated into the population,” he recalled. He suggested that something similar was happening with the widespread adoption of transgender identities, telling Rogan that a relationship exists between “creativity” and gender dysphoria.”

    “They’re not stable in their identity” because “they’re creative,” Peterson insisted, adding that “creative people by definition aren’t stable in their identities, that’s what makes them creative.”

    Later, Rogan sought to clarify that the motivating factor between “people who want to change their gender identity is creativity.” Peterson replied, declaring: “I don’t think so, I know so.”

    Peterson’s latest appearance on “The Joe Rogan Experience” comes about a year after he began to speak openly about his faith journey. Peterson grew up Protestant and had spent much of his time as a public figure as a religious sceptic but appears to have embraced his faith following health problems.

    Rogan, the former host of “Fear Factor,” continues to draw millions of listeners to his podcast despite receiving significant opposition for sharing what critics decry as coronavirus misinformation. When singer Neil Young threatened to remove his music from Spotify if it refused to cut ties with Rogan, the streaming platform elected to scrub Young’s songs from Spotify.
