One third of food sold in Britain is “fake”. The Facebook takeover is driving people away from Whatsapp – but not from Facebook. Arizona wanted to legislate interactions between business owners and their clientele. Where is the outrage is Britain? Why are people who are fed up with Facebook not turning their back on it? Why don’t Arizonans trust the market enough to flush out the bigots by itself?
Why are the consumers not doing their job? We should be stronger than Big Business. Read my latest blog: Don’t fear freedom.
What happened in the past 2,000 years that made it acceptable for the moderates to trim their beards or dress in clothes of mixed fabrics while the “Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind: it is abomination” remained intact? Perhaps the moderates think that they know better than god, or perhaps they realize that these parts of the scripture is not the word of god after all. In either case: why follow any of it?
When it comes to religion, fundamentalism is more logical than moderation. Ready why here: https://everymansliberty.wordpress.com/2014/02/20/fundamentalists-are-right-about-religion/
OrangeFish Productions, a young media company from The Netherlands, is picking up my blogs from now on. A great platform where I will be the “resident philosopher”. I’m kicking off with a music-themed article titled “Rock & Roll Rebels”.
Watched the debate between Bill Nye and Ken Ham on science and creationism with great interest. My thoughts are in my new blog over at The Everyman. Although I agree with Mr. Nye that it is far from impossible for a scientific mind to believe in a god, I do not think that a scientific mind is compatible with following a religion. Not only for the reason above, but more so because accepting rules and laws without a probable basis in reality to do so contradicts the premise of science, which is to build knowledge from testable theories. But then again, religion allows the mind to bend itself in the most surprising ways.
