Dan Dennett: Ideas on Religion and Evolution


An interesting proposal to require all children in America to be educated objectively on all world religions and their histories. So as to not indoctrinate children without parents biases at an age when they cannot think for themselves.
Also discussions on Intelligent Design, Morality without Religion as a Evolutionary Biological Phenomenon.
A respectful disagreement with Creationism and how it teaches people to think (not think for themselves).

Harvard University: Evolution of Religion


Harvard University Primate Research Specialist Marc Hauser Ph.D. Contributes to the Paper. Is Religion a cultural control, based on human creation, or does it have a biological evolutionary aspect that is enhanced through cultural variation to create an “evolutionary by product” of a natural group species instinctive behavioral system.

Christians say Science in Classroom. ” Too Hard.”


Christians for Child Education (CFE) in Houston, Texas today, formally lobbied against Science being taught in the classroom, on the basis that it is too hard. The CFE condemns Science as challenging, blasphemousness, and immorally lacks necessary faith based suppositions. The CFE insists that faith is much easier to “simply know” and proclaim with absolute certainty. The CFE attempted to draw upon Science nomenclature, claiming that pure uncomplicated faith is called for by “Ockmed’s Blazer,” and that Science needlessly over complicates learning and hypotheses.

“It [Science] is nothing more but the secular, liberal, abortion hungry, Atheist, blasphemy machine of Socialism, and so called Ph.D.’s offensively calling for rigidly, unholy empirical testing, which demands data to support a theory with evidence,” roared CFE spokesman Stanley ChristianPinkerton, as he furiously pounded his fist on the podium at a “Separation of Church and Reading” Rally this morning, to the overwhelming applause of over 1,000 slack jawed, dead eyed, Bible Belt, Born again Yokels.

Christian Surveys across the Evangelical Churches spectrum showed that 92% of Christians want to abolish Science, which makes learning an inconvenient, wicked, over complicated nuisance that corrupts the soul and simply leaves Christian children confused. The remaining 8% polled could not read the survey, but said they are on God’s side of this issue.

God, a major figure in Christianity was not answering prayers for comments.

Would you rather have Science or go to Heaven?

Can Atheists Reason with Christians?


If you are an Atheist… have you grown exasperated trying to reason with a born again Christian? Have you ever been able to reason with them to affect any change? Do you think it is possible?

Subliminal Attempt at Christians' Reasoning Receptivity.

I have been a Christian and now I can think for myself. Before I could not. Can I reason with Christians? Here’s My Reply – In short I think “No”. If you disagree please speak your mind.

Beginnings of Human Morality in Primate Group Behavior?


Click For : PDF Paper: Origins of Human Morality

This is an outstanding Overview of the Work of Evolutionary Biology and Precursory Moral behaviors. The Contention is thought provoking and supported by Natural Selection favoring Evolutionary Shaped Cooperative Behaviors among primates and surely our hunting and gathering ancestors. The tendency is towards solidarity within Small Groups and not larger mass groups. This would explain why we have the phenomenon in humans of “In group” opposing “Out groups.” It shows Trans primate species parallels to a base human moral core behavior. Behaviors shaped for cohesive Group Survival which would increase the individual’s chances for survival. It is not everyone for themselves necessarily in survival of the fittest.

This Paper’s Implications

  • Why Utilitarianism is probably an idealistic but unachievable Goal. We have evolved to help others as our ancestors of hunters and gatherers must have acted towards others “morally”. Continue reading
