Without getting into the speciousness of the "Big Bang" theory - the term enters the lexicon as a pejorative to describe something that was considered absurd at the time - the universe doesn't begin with what we can observe, but a true beginning. No materialist scientific theory can be used to make philosophical claims of that sort. There has always been in naturalism the unspoken assumption of a prime mover, and science is not a purely materialist or positivist doctrine - in science you build models of the natural world with certain caveats.
Even if you get past that philosophical hurdle, it says nothing about particular events in the universe following this universal orientation. That's a purely philosophical claim and a very piss poor one. The ends of individual humans and whole societies can be absurd or end abruptly, rather than fitting some prescribed narrative. It's a very pernicious doctrine that is particular to eugenics and its view of "genes as destiny", rather than anything that stands up to any observation we make about the past. Eugenics, of course, must declare "history is bunk" so that the Great Leader Galton is never wrong. Eugenics cannot fail, it can only be failed.>>2531
It's a false dichotomy. There is a reason why events happen, but it doesn't involve some "world spirit" that suggests that the ruling ideas are inevitably correct and absolute, or will become absolute in the future. Living things down to the individual move on their own power, as do many of the non-living things in the world. There's not actually a principle you are obligated to folllow. The state compels submission because it can, not because the state did much for you. You can argue there is a condition states generally exist in - I call this the "general fear", i.e. we assemble in state societies because of the fear of predation at a psychological level, rather than any tendency outside of us that suggests the state has meaning. God, which is the inspiration for a lot of our thinking about the spiritual authority of states and that which may oppose them, is largely a metaphor for this very process - that is, that the state really involves the cult of power and the Satan, which can claim the throne of heaven until a new Satan overcomes it.
