Re: conference(s)

I would love to attend and I'm sure it would be excellent. Price isn't too unreasonable with that many speakers at $379 no meals or 500+ with meals. Unfortunately, I won't be able to get away this summer. Already a full agenda of landscaping and a few side trips. Hope you're able to catch it though...

Re: Is Man Part of Nature?

So I suppose we would consider any object as living if we determine that the elements within it are living. Are atoms living, are neutrons, protons, electrons? Is my side table beside me living because it pulses with atoms "doing what they do?"

Re: Just a Theory

Rom, I have to agree with Bill on this because the Christians have used the word "doctrine" for ages as an absolute. For them it is stable, unquestionable and sure enough to live by. Doctrine is as positive as the holy word itself from which doctrine has been based. Anyway Bill, let's let ...

Re: Breathing Gandhi… Eternally Connected to Others

One of the monist tenets. accepted wholeheartedly by pluralists and rejected totally by most dualists, is that we are all made of star stuff. Every atom in each human being was created in the nuclear furnace of stars that spewed their newly formed matter into the cosmos at least 5 billion years ago...

Re: Is Man Part of Nature?

When I just re-watched Cosmos, I recall the dewdrop that had two microscopic organisms FIGHTING! I see humans as just another organism doing what we do. Same as the other organisms that we find doing what they do. How can we say we differ so much from anything around us that is "of nature?"...

Re: Religious Governments

A classic example of bad cases make for bad law. I think. And this is the reason our law books are such huge volumes. For all they cover, there is always another bad case that causes another law to be made. Are there any good answers to lowered crime, safe world environments, progressive scientific...

Re: Can Atheists And Agnostic Worship?

Do you think Sam Harris' new book "Waking Up" opens up new ways of looking at "spiritualism", "worship of ?", some innate need to "know"? Will looking at the issue of worship in this new light change the way people ultimately understand it's meaning? (worship...

Re: Religious Governments

Well Rom, that was an eye-opener!

Some say the system is broken, according to this video, sounds about right.
