Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

Ineluctable

This fine word also comes from Sam Harris’s book, The End of Faith;

Ineluctable (in-i-LUHK-tuh-buhl) [Latin inluctbilis : in, not + luctbilis, penetrable]

adj.

incapable of being evaded; inescapable.

Usage: At the heart of every totalitarian enterprise, one sees outlandish dogmas, poorly arranged, but working ineluctably like gears in some ludicrous instrument of death.
