The missing key is appreciating the fundamental “Magisteria of Physical Reality,” and recognizing both science and religion are products of the “Magisteria of Our Mindscape.”
Science seeks to objectively learn about our physical world, but we should still recognize all our understanding is embedded within and constrained by our mindsca…
And I 100% guarantee that I have survived more than you can possibly imagine.
Tee, I believe that. I apologize for my bull in the china shop tendencies.
Lausten, guess we’re all doing the best we can with what we have.
What if I have but it’s ignored? So we’re even.
True enough and we did advertise it, and there was a time, long ago, I practically lived in the Durango (Carnegie) Library computer lab. I guess I ought to fit in a mention. Thanks for pointing that out.

It was good news hearing that the ballot measure creating Southwest LaPlata Library District passed. That it passed by a somewhat narrow margin makes me think that many im…

I think a lot of people get that.
Then why does it seem that pretty near nobody gets this?
I wonder if our long course of evolution has resulted in our being, in total, more good than evil or more evil than good. Our cultural evolution is very new in the grand scale of history and is transient. But it has a lot to do with the question, also.
I think the jury is still out.
And the rat experiment wasn’t very promising 😉

You know CC, everything you said can be true, and all the data Tee put up can also be true.
Tee, this is like in the video, the picture of old lady vs. the young lady.
Not even sure what we are arguing about. Because I do appreciate your position, since I myself am living a materially and quality of life, that few have know in the…[Read more]
I’d been debating with myself all evening whether to delete that or not, was leaning towards trashing it, but left the window open, then I came across this, talk about evolving in the totally wrong…[Read more]
I could go on and on. I don’t mean to be signal-virtuing the modern era, by any means.
Then don’t do it. You think I’m unaware of that old stuff. I’m surprised you didn’t mention what we did to the Indians and USA Indian Schools. They tell me there’s a trend to a more peaceful society.
But, some…[Read more]
Yeah, guess I’m being a little flippant, but I’ve listened to Pinkert, I hear a showman at work.
Not saying his thoughts are all wrong, just that I don’t trust the guy.
To me he comes across as an example of someone who feels his own mind and thoughts create the Universe.
Violence has many forms. Too many are ignored. Playing with s…[Read more]
Over at my blog I’ve got this thing lit up like a Christmas Tree with hotlinks that go to various sources of relevant information. Truth be told, I bit off too much and couldn’t fit it into 1000 words – well actually I did and submitted it, then stuck it away for over a week, before going back to reread. It wasn’t pretty and when the issue a…[Read more]
Citizenschallenge-v.3 replied to the topic Since a scientific explanation has been proven to be a logical impossibility in the forum Science and Technology 1 day, 1 hour ago
Even if that were not true your claim would still be wild speculation as it leaves no room for future scientific understanding.
When I was a kid it was scientifically impossible for hummingbirds to fly, but they still did.
We didn’t have the scientific understanding to know why.
But that didn’t mean it was “logically impossible” for humming…
I want to talk about some of the consequences we must face if natural selection is the cause that led to human life and societies.
Clearly it reduces us to mechanisms, very complicated biochemical mechanisms.
(says the dog chasing it’s tail endlessly*)
How about talking about the avarice of the few who get unlimited power – and who are forcing…[Read more]

Overly rosy, you think, how about overly myopic.
What about the people forced out of agrarian lives and into slums?
What about the vicious exploding gap between the rich who never have enough, and the poor who are lucky if they get scraps.
Why are all those refugees willing to die to escape their onetime…[Read more]
Well I started writing this comment after reading Tim’s 12:13 am. Before Tee made her’s. But, my life is full of distracts, now at my third sit down, I’ve finished my comment only to find it’s old news. But still, Tee asked me about it so I’ll post anyways, then catch up on what I’ve missed.
Tee, I also wa…[Read more]
… and you’ll find me here every Sunday evening. Don’t forget to tip the bartender.
Bravo, bravo, bravo. 😉
Well done Tim, I like those. Now we have something we can discuss, if Holmes has a bone to pick with any of those thoughts.
