Coronavirus: Bangladesh mass prayer event prompts alarm

Tens of thousands of people gathered in Bangladesh for a mass prayer session on Wednesday, amid fears that it could lead to a wider outbreak.
Local police chief Tota Miah told AFP news agency that 10,000 Muslims had gathered in Raipur town to pray "healing verses" from the Koran.
But some eyewitnesses told the BBC the figure was closer to 30,000.
It comes as a religious event in Malaysia was confirmed as the source of more than 500 local infections there.
The event, which was attended by 16,000 people, has also led to infections in neighbouring Brunei, Singapore and Cambodia.
Malaysia's government later banned all public gatherings in the country and locked down its borders to prevent the further spread of the virus.
A similar mass religious gathering in Indonesia, due to be held later this week, has now been cancelled for fear that a similar outbreak could take place.

Rise of Religion

https://www.upi.com/Science_News/2020/02/21/Earliest-evidence-of-ho...

Once groups are attributing shared meaning to objects they can manipulate, it is an easy jump to give shared meaning to larger elements they cannot change: storms, floods, earthquakes, volcanoes, eclipses, and even death. We have evidence that by at least a few hundred thousand years ago, early humans were placing their dead in caves. Within the past 50,000 years, distinct examples of burial practices became more and more common.

Through language, deeply held thoughts and imaginings could be transferred rapidly and effectively from individuals to small groups to wider populations. This created large-scale shared structures of meaning—what we call belief systems.

Between about 4,000 to 15,000 years ago, numerous radical transitions occurred in many populations. Humans started to domesticate plants and animals. They developed, along with agriculture, substantial food storage capacities and technologies. Concepts of property and inequality emerged. Towns and, eventually, cities grew. All of this led to the formation of multi-community settlements with stratified political and economic structures.

This restructuring profoundly shaped, and was shaped by, belief systems. Toward the end of this period—by 4,000 to 8,000 years ago—we see clear evidence of formal religious institutions: monuments, gathering places, sanctuaries, and altars.

There are numerous explanations for the evolution of religions, and none of them by itself is satisfactory. Some proposals are psychological: Our ancestors understood that other individuals have different mental states, motivation, and agency, so they attributed those same qualities to supernatural agents to explain everything from lightning to illness.

Other researchers note that the rise of huge, hierarchical communities that engaged in large-scale cooperation and warfare correlated with the rise of far-reaching, hierarchical religions with powerful, moralizing deities. Some scientists posit that “big groups” prompted the creation of “big gods” who could enforce order and cooperation in unruly societies. Other researchers hypothesize the reverse: that humans first created “big god” religions in order to coordinate larger and larger social groups.

Some of the cases the court has declined hearing or passed judgement on leave very little room for surprise

Comment by Stephen on February 26, 2020 at 8:38am

You're probably right Onyango, but there's always a possibility that one or two of the Supreme Court justices will find a streak of moral honesty and defy Trump and his religious cohorts.

Comment by Onyango Makagutu on February 26, 2020 at 8:23am

Stephen, looks to me like the religious will earn their right to discriminate. The mood of the conservatives is that Trump is the president for religious rights and the court is tilted in a manner that is likely to support such discrimination

Comment by Stephen on February 25, 2020 at 9:47pm

The fight over whether religion is a license to discriminate is back before the Supreme Court 

Fulton v. The city of Philadelphia is likely to deal a severe blow to LGBTQ rights.

The Supreme Court announced on Monday that it will hear Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, a hugely consequential case that could fundamentally change the rules governing when people with religious objections to a law may ignore that law.
Fulton asks whether religious organizations that contract with Philadelphia to help place foster children in homes have a First Amendment right to discriminate against same-sex couples. It is also the first case the Supreme Court will hear where a religious group claims the right to violate a ban on discrimination since Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation gave reliably conservative Republicans a majority on the Supreme Court.

Tennessee Lawmaker: No ‘Solid Evidence’ Earth Is 500 Million Years Old

Stupid For Jesus: A Tennessee lawmaker refuses to support a resolution about the Cumberland Plateau because he doesn’t believe the Earth is 500 million years old.
Tennessee State Rep. Chris Todd argued against a resolution in support of the Cumberland Plateau because the resolution cites scientific research showing the plateau’s sandstone and shale are 500 million years old.
Commenting on the resolution, Rep. Todd said he rejected the science, declaring:
(The resolution is) claiming that these sandstone and shale areas date back 500 million years and I take issue with that because I don’t believe we have any solid evidence that the Earth is that old so I don’t want anything to do with with a statement like that.
The Tennessee Holler reports on the story:
