Re: Science and Morality

I couldn't agree more. I will always adhere to the main ideals of the Enlightenment: science, reason, humanism and progress. We have nothing to fear from science because what is to be discovered by human beings will be discovered. We may fear and question certain anthropic ideas that might produce d...

Re: Science and Morality

Even atheists can be fatuous sometimes. :| I came across the following post on Facebook: 'Truth, I'm an ATHIEST [sic] and even I admit this: "[Atheists constitute the vast majority of] people who constantly force their religious beliefs down my throat." ' ~Brian Ennis; 01/04/2018 [Accordin...

Re: Science and Morality

Not conceited at all, Red. I think you're trying to stay true to your nature. That's admirable. There are many like you who conceal their urges out of shame and feign disgust when they meet their similitudes. Hopefully you'll meet someone compatible and who isn't afraid of honest expression. :-) Rig...

Thanatopsis

Express your views on the topic of death here. Your statements may range from thanatology (the scientific study of death including its social and psychological impact on societies) to the philosophy of what it means to be dead. This is about death , a subject that most of us tend to avoid. Here is y...

Re: Science and Morality

We had our first child fourteen years ago but only got married seven years ago---which means that our kids got to witness and enjoy the ceremony and party. We made it official at the registry office---secular style, no church or religious bull involved. The 'big day' was merely a symbol of our love ...

Re: Visions and Thoughts

And I'd agree with your observation and you actually made a logical conclusion. I just wanted to point out some shades of grey about the nature of our minds. Thoughts do indeed colour the memory of events. A lot happens to our brains in the aftermath of meaningful or meaningless events. Throughout o...

Re: Dreams aren't just happening in your brain

I am not as good about writing them these days, because some of my family and friends today discouraged me from talking about it, drawing them, or writing them down (it feels like a few of them want me to be something I’m not....a feminine mother that’s more into things like sewing and dresses) Sew...

Science and Morality

'Values reduce to scientific facts about the wellbeing of conscious creatures.' ~Sam Harris Science can tell us what's good and bad for us and will always be a better guide than religion because it will remain true to reality. Morality can be refined by science and reason. An 'ought' is what drives...
