Sinopse

AMORAL SCIENCE & BRAINLESS RELIGIONAND CHASING REALITYExplore the interface between humankind and Reality.A. Science and religionExplore the tension between science and religion using the ideas of John Stuart Mill from his book, On Liberty.B. Chasing Reality–is The Buddha correct? The interface.Explore the nature of Reality and continue to dance between science and religion by answering three questions. Included are many quotations from people on the same journey, and a few funny fillers to give your brain a rest. Your answers and mine are at the end.C. Freedom and Joy–The Buddha and MaudeSCIENCE AND RELIGIONThe quality of the ideas and beliefs held by an individual or organization can best be judged by their willingness to be exposed to alternative ideas and beliefs, competently and forcefully presented. So argued John Stuart Mill in his short book, On Liberty.a. Your point of view may be wrong. To believe otherwise is to assume you are infallible.b. Your opinion almost certainly does not contain the whole truth, and alternative points of view may have valid elements. If you have the honesty and self-confidence to recognize them, understanding increases, and the presentation of your point of view more powerful.c. Even if the other point of view is completely wrong it is important to listen carefully and present your position vigorously and honestly. Otherwise your point of view will lose its vitality and freshness and become dead dogma, mere rhetoric.In the spirit of On Liberty, this paper considers the strengths and weaknesses of the two great interpreters of reality in our culture, science and religion.An honest dialogue has often been made toxic by too many people among such groups as atheists and fundamentalist Christians who cherry pick history, straw man the other side, and indulge in sad, mean-spirited ad-hominem attacks. For instance, atheists I have known accept science as their criterion of Reality and greatly enjoy trivializing and making fun of religion. The politics of the far right is seen as an attempt to return to the good old days, when rack and stake will once again put the fear of Almighty God in the hearts of Satan and his minions, and anyone else who doesn’t grovel low enough. And the examination of religion is usually left there, with a fervent commitment to the fight for rationality and freedom wherever ignorance and superstition are found. Such fine words indeed stir the soul.REVIEWSThis was a great book, very well written.PatrickI really enjoyed this and the insight which it offered . I would recommend this short but powerful book to anyone who recognizes that there is a problem with the way atheists and fundi’s see each other and the “whose more right” conversations that take place between them.Laura SonHighly recommend for believers and non believers alike. Hits both sides equally and does not take sides. Seldom is a work like this neutral.Phillip DurbinonI enjoyed these papers and Kinnie’s opinions on both religion and science. I found that they provoked many philosophical thoughts and discussions. Very enjoyable, and great material for debate.The Paperback Pursuer
