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.

Tyson - Origins of life

There are now 

There are now more than seven billion human beings on the planet. "Intelligent Design and Young Earth Creationist organisations often misrepresent evolution by stating that it does not explain the origin of life. This is a dishonest tactic. Of course the theory of evolution doesn't explain the origin of life. It is not supposed to. The origin of life or abiogenesis is within the field of chemistry not biology. Evolution explains the diversity of life within the field of biology not chemistry.

"Neil deGrasse Tyson takes us on a journey. A journey towards life of Earth.

Tea Party Galaxy: Voyage to the Center of Delusion

Remember, the Tea Party's main demand is an end to Obamacare, a health care reform law that was passed years ago.

What we really need is universal health care, but that will take some more tweaking.

Buy clothes (and everything else) at thrift stores,  It won't matter where they were made. Recycle, barter, sew (Yah, sure), and borrow, Buy American stuff when you can.

Cheap clothes are cheap at a high cost.  Who needs to buy  three dollar shirts at Walmart?  The merchandise is shoddy and the workers get paid a wage that won't sustain them. And benefits don't exist.  Same for the walmart workers.  A wage they can't live on and no benefits.  I know many people, me included, have to stretch their pennies but if these damned corporations would pay a living wage wouldn't we all be better off?

  • ...the questions remain unanswered.

Sentient, Chris: not so. Daniel Webster is alleged to have said if we take the decision-making into our own hands we won't do too much harm. If we leave it in the hands of others we do no good.

The number of employee-owned businesses is growing.

Employee ownership's purpose is wealth creation, so it will grow more rapidly than political democracy is growing.

I hope we reach the tipping point while earth is habitable.
