Politics, Economics, and Religion

Religion has so many connections to political and economic beliefs, there needs to be a place to identify linkages, problems, goals, options, action plans and evaluation criteria.

What is the purpose of life?

An eternal question, what is the purpose of life?, occupied philosophers’ thoughts throughout history. Stone pictographs reveal even primitive peoples reflected on this query. Each one has the capacity to define his or her personal thinking about politics, economics and religion.

John, since religion came before psychology, I believe psychology often falls under the influence of religion. It wasn't psychology that freed me from the bindings of thought, it was education, then support from women who faced challenges similar to mine, and then at some point atheism provided a frame where I could state with confidence, "I see no evidence of god!" From there on, it was just the freedom to think critically.

Andrew Keen interviews George Dyson, author of Turing's Cathedral.

I'm assuming you know the story of Alan Turing, mathematician, philosopher, developer of the Enigma machine, broke the German U-boat Code during WW II, discovered to be homosexual, he was tried, required to take male hormones, committed suicide in 1954 with cyanide. 

One of the finest mathematicians and judged because he was homosexual. Just another proof of human's insanity and stupidity caused by religious beliefs.
