Resolution of 14 Sep 2011

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

I will not read anything written on the subjects of morality, good, evil, right, wrong, or war and warfare that addresses these issues in terms of good guys and bad guys. For example, Evil and Us by Alan Wolfe.

Religion

Sunday, July 4th, 2010

On page 21 of the Bantam mass market paperback edition of Sixty Days and Counting, Kim Stanley Robinson writes: ” . . . in one of those quick leaps that humans were prone to make (although science was not) . . .”

Robinson here refers to an entity, which he calls science, that exists independently of any human agent or agency, and that is superior to human beings, at least in its avoidance of hasty conclusions. Where may I go to see this entity? May I touch it? talk with it? ask it questions, as, say, the Greeks did of the Oracle at Delphi?

This statement is a religious proposition, as assertion of the existence of a superior being of ultimate good.

Some people might refer to it, scornfully, as science fiction.
