Michelle replied to K. B. Powell's discussion Our Nontheistic Roots? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Here is what I'm thinking. Going back to our ideas of human origins we can see much of what we understand and use today is based on Darwin's ideas. While I'm not trying to suggest that they were anything less than brilliant, I am…"

Steve replied to K. B. Powell's discussion Our Nontheistic Roots? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"This is an interesting observation. I had never considered the non-theistic stage of spiritualism as being part of the sequence that lead to religiosity. I have always looked farther back to the biological roots of our basic morality such as the…"

Michelle replied to K. B. Powell's discussion Our Nontheistic Roots? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"I want to come back to this. It is interesting because there is also the aspect of social, economic, gender and racial history that plays into what became acceptable as science, history and every other part of our world view that skews it still…"

Humanity's "Dharmic" Roots?

Greetings,I have a tentative working hypothesis to run by you all with regards to spirituality/religion, and basic Buddhist philosophy specifically. It is based on David Brazier's (i.e. Dharmavidya's) interpretation of the 4 Noble Truths which, according to his understanding/research, are as follows:1) Dukkha - The highly tuned human cognitive capacity to perceive certain aspects of life (ex. the death of a loved one, etc) as less than satisfying.2) Samudaya - The emotional energy that tends to…See More

K. B. Powell replied to Sentient Biped's discussion Genetics of Race. in the group Conversations on Race, Ethnicity, & Culture
"No problem. A lot of times it takes a particularly sensitized eye to notice things like this. For the most part, the negative racial messages in the media are subliminally transmitted. Things like this pervade movies, magazines, and television...I…"

A realistic mindset and practical reason.

I never thought anger to be reasonable. This group hopefully, will be an interchange of wise and thoughtful observations. A favorite sayinf of mine is "Do not anger; disprove."
