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.

We, you and I, claim to live in a democracy, a place where the rule of law stands higher than the rule of man. We believe such fallacies because that is what we learned in school, from the first time we stood tall and proud and repeated the "pledge…Continue

Sixty some years ago I started college with a major in horticulture at Washington State College (now university). The first day of class, our prof, Dr. Woody Kalin, explained to us that we would be working with soil, and there was a difference…Continue

Any Bernie supporters here?

I'll be there, too, Joan, less to pick brains than just to participate.  And as to someone I'd like to just chat with, Seth Andrews is the first person to come to mind.

As for Trump, he may be the apotheosis of the Republican's obsession with sizzle vs. steak.  He is all bloviation and bluster, the product of reality TV crossed with way too much money and influence ... and he needs to be voted down so hard he BOUNCES.

Rachel Ford has a way with words.

… Donald Trump’s ascendency… should … be a wake up call to the Republican Party that that old fallback of prioritizing the demands of religious fanatics to win elections has an expiration date after all. … Trump’s success doesn’t mean that the Religious Right is defanged — just that, at least on a temporary basis, Republican voters were swayed by more pressing concerns than what was happening in other people’s pants.

Great Catch-22/Trump-context quote, Loren! <sigh>

I'm jealous, Daniel. I'd love to attend too, but I hate crowds, even non-superstitious ones.

Daniel, you may be our eyes and ears at the Reason Rally, our reporter on the scene. I hope the turnout is huge; I also hope you get to participate in discussions with "stars of the show".
If I were there, i would hound David Silverman and pick his brain about firebrand atheism. l would also enjoy sitting with Dilahunte to discuss debate strategy.
With whom would you enjoy a chat?

Breathe, Daniel ... just breathe!

Joan, I bought my tickets and made hotel reservations for the Reason Rally in June. Then I saw your post ant thought, Oh No! I reserved the wrong month! But, figured out the DAY of reason is not the same as the RALLY for reason. Whew!
