Politics, Economics, and Religion


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.

Comment on tRump canceling/postponing his military parade:

TRUMP ALREADY HAD HIS PARADE (caption over the white nationalists marching with tiki torches at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Friday night, August 11, 2017)

Angela Merkel to Donald Trump, who looks like he’s sleeping: “...and when I count to 3, you will wake up ...when you wake, you will forget all this awful being ‘President’ silliness, and only want to golf until the day you die.” (Trump is thinking “Resign... Golf...”)

Donald, nice to see your comment. I know you have a lot of ground for which you give careful attention. I like to hear about your neighborly activity, as well.

Why the Catholic Church Needs to be Classified as a Cult

August 15, 2018 Patheos

Katie Paulson goes through a list of typical characteristics of cults and shows how the Catholic Church qualifies.

  • . . . The Catholic Church is a predatory and dangerous cult that needs to held accountable.
  • Catholics may bristle at my statement about the church being a cult. However, if you do any research or reading about dangerous cults, the church meets so many of the criteria. If you don’t believe me, I’ll go through a rundown of the requirements of a cult. The checklist I’m using is courtesy of Cult Recovery 101.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 "Personal attack" redirects here. For the policy on Wikipedia, see Wikipedia:No personal attacks.

 Ad hominem (Latin for "to the man" or "to the person"[1]), short for argumentum ad hominem, is a fallacious argumentative strategy whereby genuine discussion of the topic at hand is avoided by instead attacking the character, motive, or other attribute of the person making the argument, or persons associated with the argument, rather than attacking the substance of the argument itself.[2] The terms ad mulierem[3] and ad feminam[4] have been used when the person receiving the criticism is a woman.

However, its original meaning was an argument "calculated to appeal to the person addressed more than to impartial reason".[5]

Fallacious ad hominem reasoning is categorized as an informal fallacy,[6][7][8] more precisely as a genetic fallacy, a subcategory of fallacies of irrelevance.

It’s ok to feel powerless, ...and to feel very pissed off about it.

complicit, in the OED:

involved with others in an illegal activity or wrongdoing.

Comment by Tom Sarbeck on August 16, 2018 at 3:06pm

ad hominem, in the OED:

(of an argument or reaction) arising from or appealing to the emotions and not reason.

I'm not hiding.  Just staying busy trying to maintain 1 1/2 acres of landscaping in this hot summer.  Plus I've been helping another guy build a pump house for a widow next door.  

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on August 16, 2018 at 2:59pm

>does it not also qualify as an ad hominem?

How is it an attack on the people in question? It's condemning their continued support of a corrupt institution, not their persons.
