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.

Karen Armstrong is dangerous

"Karen Armstrong is dangerous. She’s dangerous because her blanket of tedious verbiage hides the truth that she wants us to completely ignore the dangers of religious dogma.  It appears that for her, there is no harmful dogma that can be pinned on…Continue

Melinda, Your kind words feel comforting to me; if I make sense to you, that is high reward. I would like to think that "smart" is true, however, what I write comes straight from my heart as I try to make sense out of the world and my place in it. By all means, your contributions not only prove to be insightful, but written from a compassionate heart. Your writings reveal a seeker unafraid to ask the hard questions and a willingness to shed off blinders and take risks with new ideas. I always perk up when I see you have posted something. Thank you for being part of my journey.

 Thanks for the invite Joan.  Your posts are so inspiring and thought-provoking.  I love your way with words.  You and John D. (and many others) are so smart, I just read, and don't feel I can contribute anything of value.  I don't mean to put myself down, I know I'm intelligent, but you people are Awesome!  I'm going to have my Journalism Major/History Minor Daughter (who also has a way with words) read some of your posts.  Believe me I will contribute if I can, but right now I am loving reading all of the posts.~ Melinda

John, since religion came before psychology, I believe psychology often falls under the influence of religion. It wasn't psychology that freed me from the bindings of thought, it was education, then support from women who faced challenges similar to mine, and then at some point atheism provided a frame where I could state with confidence, "I see no evidence of god!" From there on, it was just the freedom to think critically.
