Politics, Economics, and Religion

Religion has so many connections to political and economic beliefs, there needs to be a place to identify linkages, problems, goals, options, action plans and evaluation criteria.

What is the purpose of life?

An eternal question, what is the purpose of life?, occupied philosophers’ thoughts throughout history. Stone pictographs reveal even primitive peoples reflected on this query. Each one has the capacity to define his or her personal thinking about politics, economics and religion.

GC, if I don't laugh at the video you posted, it's for the same reason I don't laugh at Mr. Deity: it cuts entirely too close to the truth.

And while I'm at it: FUCK THEM!  I'll see you at the polls next Tuesday!

A message from the Republican Party: Please Don't Vote

They're counting on poor voter turnout to win back the Senate on November 4th, 2014. Do your part to help the GOP, and stay home.

I wanted to be sure that Gates was an atheist, so I checked Wikipedia.  It appears he's an agnostic.  It also appears he has no control over Microsoft anymore.

Comment by Idaho Spud on October 5, 2014 at 12:40pm

I'm surprised to see Microsoft on the list.  I would have thought that the atheist Bill Gates would know better.

Disrupt Denial: After Leaving ALEC, Google Still Funding Evil

While the withdrawal of Google, Yahoo, Facebook and others from ALEC’s vast pool of corporate funders was widely celebrated by climate campaigners, a recent report released by Forecast the Facts and SumOfUS shows how Google – and many others who claim to do good by climate – are still funding climate denial in politics. 

The report, called Disrupt Denial: How big business is funding climate change denial i..., reveals how companies like Google, Ford, Microsoft, UPS, and eBay continue to support Senators and Representatives in the House who deny the very science of climate change. [emphasis mine]

Funny, Loren.

Found on Daily Kos.com:

Politics is like driving.

  • If you want to go backward, put it in R.
  • If you want to go forward, put it in D.

Were the monks in de Sade's Justine atypical?

Comment by James M. Martin on August 13, 2014 at 6:02pm

Well, Tom, we are not all cut out to be monks.

CC (newly devised texting talk for chuckle, chuckle. It's not yet in the Urban Dictionary).

When I dumped Catholicism I imagined myself facing a huge void and checked out several non-xian religions. As I recall one of Buddhism's requirements was that I have no attachments.

It was too much like Catholicism's self-denial. I was in my 20s and had a few things I wanted to do. They included doing what C'cism wanted me to quit doing: jerking off. Bye bye, Buddhism.
