"Wow.  Can you be any more offensive?  So if I disagree with Sam Harris, it's because I'm stupid?  Well, I've had MRIs of my brain done, and I can assure you that I have more than half a brain;  I can only assume…"

"I have to wonder who is going to accept that being an atheist is an okay thing to be if even atheists run away from the prospect of being identified as one?"

Mika Dukat replied to Park Bierbower's discussion Setting the Ground Rules in the group Reforming Counter-Apologetics
"I dunno.  If ya ask me, these rules of yours sound like the devil's work.  Just sayin'.  "

Mika Dukat commented on Park Bierbower's group Reforming Counter-Apologetics
"Hrm.  Not sure what this group is about, but the brief description sounds like it may be in my ballpark.  For some time I have believed that understanding the emotional basis of reasoning, bounded rationality and the logic/psychology of…"

Mika Dukat replied to Alice's discussion Sam Harris Neuroscientist & Vipassana Meditation in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Not coincidentally, Sam has a blog entry on How To Meditate which addresses a beginning practice from what may be termed a non-religious point of view.  It's been centuries since I've read it, but I found the book Zen Mind,…"

"Your comment about workplace ethics reminds me of certain breeders' comments that they have nothing against gays, just against the disgusting public displays of affection -- something they'd hardly say if confronted with heterosexual…"

Mika Dukat replied to Alice's discussion Sam Harris Neuroscientist & Vipassana Meditation in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"I recently had an argument with a liberal Christian whose contention was that he didn't base his belief in God on the bible, presumably that his religious experience -- being infilled with the spirit -- was more fundamental to him than the…"

"In Taoism, there is the concept of wu-wei, variously translated as "no action" -- which is similar, but different.  In my understanding, wu-wei means learning to differentiate between calls to action which are warranted from those…"

Mika Dukat replied to Alice's discussion Sam Harris Neuroscientist & Vipassana Meditation in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Alice: I can't speak as any kind of expert, but I would suggest that meditation breaks down into kataphatic and apophatic types just like prayerful meditation -- one consists in focusing the mind on one thing and making that the totality of…"

"Mrmph.  I can't say that I've fully digested Harris' message, but I find myself having a knee-jerk reaction against it.  His chosen metaphor, racism, I think is somewhat problematic.   I'm reminded of the fact…"
