Cognitive Errors: The Great Man Theory of History

The foibles of human cognition are found among the religious and the non-religious alike; among theists and nontheists.  One such foible is "The Great Man Theory of History".  I have written and illustrated a critique of this theory here on my blog.  It is pertinent especially with the recent assassination of Osama bin Ladin.  My post reviews the scientific discovery of the…See More

Sabio Lantz commented on Johnny's blog post Should we "push" secularism?
"Sure, Theists should push their position too. The thing we want to be sure of is that none of this is done coercively. And the most powerful coercive tool is the government. So preserve opinions but curb the violence."

Sabio Lantz replied to Nathan Phelps's discussion Why Are We Here? in the group Life After Christian Fundamentalism
"There are views of a god who is not an interventionist -- thus, there need be no evidence for "his" existence. That god could be the source of afterlives, also untestable. So, my disbelief is in an interventional diety. I am an atheist…"

Sabio Lantz replied to Sentient Biped's discussion If you could erase your religious history... would you? in the group Life After Christian Fundamentalism
"I would keep my whole history. All parts were who I was, all parts had good and bad. How am I to chose? Am I embarrassed about past deeds, yes -- atheist or theist. Where does this thinking take you?"

Welcome to Atheist Nexus where you have at once obtained thousands of good friends.

Try joining groups like the busy discussion group ORIGINS (Origins: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion..... ).

I have been running a long discussion there about being "Proud to be Atheist" as we all should be, seeing that we hold the intellectual high ground over the nonsense of the irrational religious fantasisers.
