Authority!

Authority!Without a structure of authority that guides group behavior in the soft, delicate, physically defenseless, human species; cooperative life , even primitive cooperative human life would not have been possible and the species Homo sapiens would never have evolved. Cooperative behavior was and is essential for the development of civilization. And It is the organization of a social structure through defined levels of authority that is necessary for formation and survival of a functional…See More

God came to me in a dream last night

Posted on June 19, 2015 at 1:50pm 13 Comments

I think it was God that came to me in a dream last night. I never had a dream like that before. It was very dark, a blackness that was all encompassing, but then there was a point of light, a single and very distinct point of light that had no glow beyond its boundaries. The voice that I then heard was not like a human voice, it was English, my native language, and very precise, almost machinelike, with a vocabulary so familiar that I understood every word. I can remember pretty much…

Jesus and Muhammad, 2015

This is probably not the right place for this, but some may find it of interest.

Jesus and Muhammad 2015

 

The camel was cranky, but then what camel isn’t? As it plodded on through the hot sand Muhammad swayed with the rolling gait of the camel and it felt familiar and good. He wondered why the Celestial High Council (CHC) had summoned him to this meeting. He was quite busy with the awaking of religious concepts in a developing reptilian species on a planet in a…

Is it moral to use reason to deny the existence of God?

Posted on January 11, 2015 at 2:44pm 6 Comments

Is it moral to use reason to deny the existence of God? The answer is, unequivocally, It depends on . which version of absolute morality is subscribed to if morality is defined by culture rather than religion. In my opinion, the answer is no; that it is absurd to deny the application of pure reason in the quest for knowledge on any subject. Dependence upon faith as a moral requirement to provide supernatural enlightenment rather than pure reason to gain knowledge and solve problems is a…

Quit claiming to be a man of science and an atheist if you're going to post about how you had a vivid dream about gawd. Why would you do that? There are better sites to troll, and really you guys are seriously annoying, and you give a bad name to theists everywhere.

Hi Martin. I hear you--both on learning to navigate this site and on your dismissal of religion and leanings toward science. About the same time (actually 1954), when I was 11, I saw Saturn through a telescope and it blew me away. Leonardo da Vinci became my idol. Eventually, I became a science teacher which gave me a grand opportunity to impress the subject on young minds and indirectly diminish religion. I had to walk a fine line there!

Anyway, continue to explore the site and jump in any time.
