My God

My God - The majority of religions talk in terms of My God. My God is ownership of God. My God invariably becomes a collective Our God, truth, and dogma. Our God dogma makes us right and you wrong. Or, us being saved and you being damned. Harris proposed, "the central tenant of every religious tradition is that all others are mere repositories of error or, at least, dangerously incomplete. Intolerance is thus intrinsic to every creed." (2004) Dogma makes our religion having an exclusive…

Silent Night, Smoky Night. Christians pass the buck on climate change.

'Holy smoke! Carols by renewable candlelight.' So went the headline of The Australian newspaper on the 15th of December. The Australian Religious Response to Climate Change is all into 'We wish you a Steady Climate' and 'Silent Night, Smoky Night' according to Emily Ritchie reporting. This arriviste group through Tejopala Rawls announced that: 'We want them to step down off the fence and gain the moral courage to do something about climate change.'

So there! Decades after this had…

Winter Solstice: the Festival the Church the People

Winter Solstice: the Festival the Church the People

'...tis the season to be jolly...' goes the tune.

The lead up to the festive season really does generate a palpable sense of well being. In part because we all know what is coming: the greatest feast of the year. For which we simply cannot wait. Which is not of recent vintage either.

In Europa children get an Advent Kalender. Stuck onto the window. With its…

Doctrine of Infallibility

What do you think of the Doctrine of Infallibility? For me, this doctrine correlates with inerrancy. For religions, infallibility includes saying my/our religion can't err because I/we have the Truth. Infallibility is about being right absolutely and without exception. Infallibility proclaims the inerrancy of the Bible. In 1870, the Roman Catholic Church formally announced the doctrine of papal infallibility on matters of faith and doctrine. However, all religions have some doctrinal forms…

Of the gods

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,

Fideism

What do you think of the concept of Fideism? For me, fideists are those religious addicts who have beliefs not based on reason or logic. For me, fideism puts reasoning to sleep. It really amounts to an abdication of the working brain’s critical thinking skills of analysis and synthesis. Fideism is concrete reactive thinking and a mechanical interaction with life. Schopenhauer said, “faith and knowledge are related as the scales of a balance; when one goes up, the other goes down.” (19th…
