The Rational Human

 God sleeps in the minerals, awakens in plants, walks in animals, and thinks in man.      ~Arthur Young Recently I asked a couple of questions on my Facebook page. “What if everything you believe is wrong? Can you even admit that possibility?” What if we discovered tomorrow that foundational “truths” we hold to be dear were in fact false—what would we do? Would we deny the marshal of evidence before us? Would we attack the messenger delivering the news? Would we challenge with arguments of credibility, authenticity, verifiability, and so forth? Well the likelihood is very high that we would ...

Our Food

This past week had some really interesting headlines regarding our food.  In one headline we read,  Are Corn Flakes Republican?  The article goes on to inform us of a new software program that will scan food in the marketplace and inform you of how the company votes with its dollars.  Quoting the Huff Post article, “The app uses data from the Center for Responsive Politics, the Institute for State Money in Politics and the Sunlight Foundation tracking donations by corporate boards, employees and political action committees.”1  So the idea is simple, if you’re a Democrat don’t buy corn flakes—vote with ...

The fact is, ever since the pioneering work of Benjamin Libet and his observation of cortical evoked potentials, particularly the P300 wave, scientists have known that the conscious mind is the tail being wagged by the subconscious. In other words, and the hard data bears this conclusion out, the conscious mind makes up reasons for why we do what we do out of an inherent need to ...

Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

The idea of life after death is a subject that cynics often debase by using that old Freudian logic, “Religion is a sugar-coated neurotic crutch.” They may continue by drawing on the words of the philosopher, John Wisdom, pointing out that it’s a bit like having Daddy at the end of the hall when you have a nightmare or become afraid. The creator, by whatever name, is of course responsible for providing an afterlife. As such, it doesn’t matter if you’re a deist or theist or even an agnostic, proof of the afterlife does not necessarily imply the living existence ...
