Re: Hello From Tasmania Australia

I'm not judging the truth of Buddhism, but a particular actor's behavour relative the role's teaching on sexual ethics. Am I being unreasonable in criticizing an actor's actions relative to the intellectual content in a role that he played? Are actors influenced by the roles that they play? Some ac...

Re: Philosophy of Science

Right there! And when there is no such examination there is no possibility of democracy. That's what makes science an institution for democracy, that enhances democracy.
Science can inform decision making. Decision making can be made by anyone.

Re: Philosophy of Science

Nobody said science is beyond reproach. In fact, it viscerally attracts reproach, whether it likes it or not. That's what makes it good for democracy. Look, for instance, at the visceral reproaches to the sciences of abortion or climate change. Those debates are good for the community. You don't ge...

Re: Philosophy of Science

I am not talking Scientism, which refers to an ideology or junk science. No, I am talking about the science of research and discovery, a secular and open discipline.

Re: Philosophy of Science

Science put food on your table, as well as a roof over your head and cloths on your back. One can't say religion did that unless one is delusional. I don't think science did as much as you claim it did. Science has nothing to do with the distribution of the food or the clothing or the building of t...

Re: New Guy

I'm sorry to write so much. I often feel the need to do so when I am asked to explain my position as an agnostic because people tend to assume that I have had little involvement with the Church when they first learn of my position.
