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.

 The Oscar Wilde and Neil deGrasse Tyson are great quotes.

I would like to add as for my personal development I follow G.I.G.O. ...Garbage in, Garbage out.  Garbage in  is religious indoctrination garbage and Garbage out ...  is religious trash.

Being the quote-monger that I am, I'll let this guy answer:

Chris - I think Oscar Wilde had a pretty good thought on the purpose of life:

The aim of life is self-development. To realize one’s nature perfectly – that is what each of us is here for.

That, coupled with another of his observations, We are not in this world to air our moral predjudices, makes for a pretty positive outlook as far as I'm concerned anyway.

The purpose of life is to live it.

Thomas, another variation on Twain’s words:

It’s easier to be lied to than to admit we have been lied to.

Tain’t mine, Thomas.

One of the talking heads on RT sourced it to Mark Twain, saying Twain used third person, “It’s easier to fool people....”

I don’t like gossipy-sounding stuff and often change third person usages to first person.

Tom,

That sounds like your own quote.....

Ruth,

This is a video of Oprah which in 1984 she interviewed Annie Laurie Gaylor and Dan Barker. It is a 46 minutes long:

Yep, it’s easier to fool us than to convince us we’ve been fooled.
