I bet you are filthy rich. But are you grateful?

Use this philosophy forum to discuss and debate general philosophy topics that don't fit into one of the other categories.

This forum is NOT for factual, informational or scientific questions about philosophy (e.g. "What year was Socrates born?"). Those kind of questions can be asked in the off-topic section.

Abrahamic religions started 3334 years ago:
Wikipedia on Torah wrote: Rabbinic writings state that the Oral Torah was given to Moses at Mount Sinai, which, according to the tradition of Orthodox Judaism, occurred in 1312 BCE. The Orthodox rabbinic tradition holds that the Written Torah was recorded during the following forty years,[65] though many non-Orthodox Jewish scholars affirm the modern scholarly consensus that the Written Torah has multiple authors and was written over centuries.[66]
According to the Lindy effect, the statistically expected life expectancy for Abrahamic religions is another 3334 years:
Wikipedia on Lindy effect wrote: The Lindy effect (also known as Lindy's Law[1]) is a theorized phenomenon by which the future life expectancy of some non-perishable things, like a technology or an idea, is proportional to their current age. Thus, the Lindy effect proposes the longer a period something has survived to exist or be used in the present, it is also likely to have a longer remaining life expectancy. Longevity implies a resistance to change, obsolescence or competition and greater odds of continued existence into the future.[2] Where the Lindy effect applies, mortality rate decreases with time. Mathematically, the Lindy effect corresponds to lifetimes following a Pareto probability distribution.
Western civilization and its degenerate times will be long history by then.

By the way, I do not believe that western civilization has another five years of life expectancy left. In fact, it could be done and over with by the end of this year already. With the growing energy crisis, the impending food crisis, the hyperinflation crisis that is well on its way, and the very damaging standoff with the Russian Federation, it could all be finished very soon now. Good riddance!
