Of the gods

Posted on December 8, 2018 at 5:59am 3 Comments

From his Tusculan disputations, it appears Cicero was way ahead of the the creationists. in that work, the teleological arguments are made and dispensed with including the argument from complexity, Behe's favourite. 

In this post, I dwell on the response by Cotta, a priest, to the arguments advanced by Vellieus, an Epicurean, 

African religion

Posted on March 22, 2018 at 7:31am 2 Comments

Most commentary on religion on the web deals mainly with the Abrahamic faiths. Whenever Buddhism is talked about, mainly it is like now when they are fighting the muslim minority in Burma. African religions hardly ever get a mention or even a footnote. It is this anomaly that I seek to correct by writing a few pieces on African religion to join those others written by people more qualified than I am.…

In this post, I provide various links on the challenges of African philosophy and attempts by scholars to answer the question whether an African philosophy exists.

My thoughts on the education of children

Posted on June 23, 2015 at 12:46am 16 Comments

Having read the thoughts of Lycurgus, Rousseau and Montaigne on this very important topic, I have written what I think should be the end of all of education.

Hi Onyango, you have remained fit if your pic is any indication. If you are still running up Kenya Mountain you have my respect. As for me i continue to hike in the hot weather but i despise it.

Thank you Onyango for your kind thoughts.
Yes! They certainly are strange times that we are witnessing.

Thank you Onyango. 73, & still breathing....that is a good thing.

Well we didn't have a white Yuletide. More like an '50's - '60's Aussie winter cool to cold and damp with the occasional misty day. 
Over here they tend to celebrate the New Year more than the Xmas. And this year every thing is quiet and low keyed. 
How are things in your corner of this beautiful Planet?

Happy Birthday Onyango , me modji
