For those who choose to believe there is a God or Allah or ‘It’ as one may define the Intelligent Designer/Creator/Higher Mind/Spirit … Whatever, what if that Entity was … more?
And for those who choose not to believe in a God or Allah, or ‘It’ as one may define the Intelligent Designer/Creator/Higher Mind/Spirit … Whatever, what if our experiences about and in Life could be … more?
Think about this for a moment: What if God and/or Life were indeed even more than what mankind has chosen to believe and create? What if all of Life could be better? [From my
book Life Will Answer.]

And so the Republican primaries will be full of the usual evangelical type preaching, damning abortion and calling their Democratic contenders ‘elitist’ snobs, while brushing off those so-called ‘expert’ climate scientists and their warnings. But you can only blame the politicians so much. When it comes down to it, this is simply what a big part of the population expects from their leaders — religious buffoons who embrace a paranoid style of politics; where experts and academics are looked down upon as disconnected and deceitful, and where faith in Jesus and the Bible is the ultimate guiding light. Where one is expected to go with their gut rather than their head, and where ‘professorial’ is an insult. Anti-intellectualism is an American tradition.…

If there is no Source, no Infinite Intelligence—or Supreme Being, or God, or Allah, or Consciousness, or for that matter, no Flying Spaghetti Monster*—then the Universe came into existence as a result of a magical, outside-of-science science which caused the Big Bang to serve as the first unit and moment of this Universe. How do we define or understand the concept of “no preceding cause?”

Looking Left and Right: Authoritarianism Pt 1

As we showed in our analysis of the Clinton/Obama primary fight in 2008, in our book, as well as in analysis of election data from 2010 and 2012, what distinguishes Democratic from Republican voters among whites isn’t education level or income level. It’s authoritarianism. The data are consistent in this – low authoritarian white folks with less than a college education, or who earn less than the median income, overwhelmingly support Democrats. Conversely, whites with high incomes and high education levels but who also score high in authoritarianism strongly support Republicans. In other words, it’s not “working-class whites” per se, who support very conservative candidates. It’s authoritarians, whether they are working class or not. This, too, is consistent with the composition of the (not-so-mysterious) Trump coalition. [1]

Life Will Answer – The Book: Why Would Any “God” Be Narrow-Minded?

101_0021

I recently published an eBook entitled Life Will Answer. It’s an exploration of life, religion, and the tenuous connection one has with the other—at least as has been defined to date by the various theologies of past and present-day believers.  Continue reading

Looking Left and Right: Unthinking Opposition

It’s probably not too far beyond the scope of reasonable observations to state that for most of us, more often than not when given the choice between the familiar and the new, our first inclination would be to opt for the familiar. This is true in personal, cultural, social, political, and economic arenas. Continue reading
