Moral Agnosticism

In this week’s spotlight I would like to discuss cultural relativism, something I think of as very close to, if not synonymous, with moral agnosticism. For I believe that fundamentally there are certain human rights that should exist everywhere in the world, regardless of so-called customs. Further, I am convinced that when we allow or justify the deprivation of these rights, by precedent we rob ourselves of the integrity that all life deserves. Indeed, by allowing human atrocities, we invite them upon ourselves if by nothing other than our tacit consent. There are many today who insist that there is ...

Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays

In today’s spotlight I would like to discuss an issue that shouldn’t be an issue in my opinion—and that’s the idea of Christmas wishes. It seems that for the past few years we have been encouraged to send holiday wishes instead of those of a Merry Christmas variety. There are reasons behind this but to me, the most interesting comes down to one of politics. According to a PRRI poll, 61% of Republicans are in favor of Merry Christmas while 66% of the Democrats favor a secular greeting such as Happy Holidays. Political Divide Why the political divide? According to ...

Paulian Paradox

          In today’s spotlight I wish to discuss the idea of being and nothingness. I just read a wonderful philosophical discussion regarding the question, Why is there something instead of nothing? If you enjoy philosophy, I highly recommend the book by Jim Holt, Why Does the World Exist?: An Existential Detective Story. If you seriously give this idea some thought, you are driven to ask, “Why is this question meaningful?” Why Being and Nothingness Matters All together too often we take the obvious for granted; oh we may look around the world and see beauty and ...

Cruelty Knows Many Forms

This week I wish to discuss cruelty for there are many forms of this nasty vice that currently infect almost everything we encounter. Whenever I turn on a Cable News Network, no matter which one, there is one message always conveyed—it is the message of us verses them. It seems that news as we used to know it a decade or more ago has died. There appears to be an agenda that accompanies the news and colors it accordingly. Question: Is the us against them a form of cruelty? Robbers Cave Obviously I think so. There are many psychological experiments ...

Division and Hatred

In today’s spotlight I want to open up a discussion regarding the division developing in our country. In my book, Gotcha! The Subordination of Free Will, I fleshed out something Dewey Phyllis, former FBI and Chief of Police, shared. It is the story of how Soviet intelligence planned to corrupt American values and divide its people—a plan that dates back to the fifties. A Divided House Now fast forward to the more recent disclosures regarding the investigations into the Russian meddling in American affairs. It’s now publicly known that their agenda, whether messing with our elections, or baiting division with ...

Becoming Rational In Our Discourse

In this week’s spotlight I wish to explore the idea of rational discussion in an environment where emotion tends to rule thinking. If you stop and reflect on the last time you disagreed with someone, you can ask yourself an easy and obvious question: why? Now I don’t mean the obvious here, like I hate Trump and he/she likes him, or the movie was great and they hated it, etc. What I really mean is why does the person you disagreed with think the way they do? Maybe They Are Right! What we seem to lack is our ability to ...
