Reading with New Eyes, Hearing with New Ears

by Interfaith

In the Bible these verses to me have a deep meaning. 1 Corinthians 2:9“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” Matthew 13:13-15“…13 This is why I speak to them in parables: “Though […]

by Interfaith

Dr Malone points out the flaws in WHO leader’s decision: https://brownstone.org/articles/delete-the-k-in-monkeypox/ In a move that is sure to trigger widespread discussion concerning the independence, objectivity and wisdom of granting authority to the WHO to manage global infectious diseases responses, the monkeypox outbreak has been declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) by the […]

Motivation for Life after Death

by Interfaith

Many people yearn for life to continue in some form after death. For me, I cannot accept a materialistic philosophy like atheism. Not only does it deny any continuation, it also denies something more fundamental to a healthy and sane universe: justice. Something is inherently wrong with a universe where the moral arc doesn’t bend […]

How Socratic Intellectualism Side-Steps the Is-Ought Problem

by Interfaith

According to Socrates, the wise will do good simply by virtue of their knowledge and wisdom. Initially, this is a notion that confused me, but now I think I’m beginning to understand it. Even if we came up with a “bad actor” who desired nothing but to benefit themselves, through proper wisdom they would realize […]

Cancel Culture

by Interfaith

Cancel culture is not limited to the “Woke Left.” The entrenched right is also quite guilty of it. One obvious example of it is the GOP “primarying” republicans who don’t tow the line regarding the last election being a fraud, as well as working to disenfranchise whole blocks of voters who they feel will vote […]

Whether Deuteronomy and Exodus; Christianity, Judaism and Paganism; Mahavira, the Buddha, and Vedic […]
