I did not really have much to say Joan. But you are welcome.
Oh! I get it. Thanks, Frankie.
In the history of science/philosophy/religion and various forms of superstition, rationalism is an implicit rejection of religion. Religion rejects reason.
Materialism is a way of seeing the universe that has at its genesis rationalism.
Values is a separate issue. And yes i think a rational person does believe values are significant.
Frankie, can you explain to me what "materialism is a concept borne of rationalism" means?
If materialism means things are more important than spiritual values, and
if rationalism means reason rather than experience is the foundation of knowledge,
then materialism is a concept borne of rationalism.
Would not a rational person understand that values matter? By values, I mean putting an emphasis on people and living things, not on inanimate things. A rational person would protect the water instead of putting water at risk with mining or drilling for oil.
materialism is a concept borne of rationalism...
