  • The Reformation of Education

    Roughly speaking we spend 10K per student per year, which varies from a low of 7k in Utah to a high of 20k in NY, plus an additional 2k per student at the federal level’s department of education. I don’t know the state overhead numbers. As far as I can tell there is zero value […]

  • Religion may be necessary, but not lies.

    Nov 15, 2016 10:40am Religion is a NECESSARY institution for the provision of decidability by narrative, which is the loosest theoretical structure we currently know how to construct. The question is whether we claim religious narratives are true(history), are myths(parables), or are supernatural(falsehoods). History and Myths are enough without resorting to lies.

  • Religion Has No Need Of Lies

    There is a difference between a cost of entry into a religion and the content of the falsehoods in the religion. Many cults do not ask us to pay physical costs, but to deny reality as the cost of entry. In fact, is that not the entire premise of the monotheistic religions? The price of […]

  • Christianity, Judaism, And Islam: Moral Or Immoral?

    Nov 17, 2016 5:58pm Assuming you teach Christianity as myth rather than history, by and large it’s compatible with natural law. But not Judaism. And not Islam. QUESTION… —“I’d enjoy it if you’d elaborate on that.”—Rex May Well, if by Christianity we are talking about the content of the bible, and in particular of the […]

  • The Future of Religion

    JOSLIN AND DOOLITTLE ON THE FUTURE OF RELIGION Curt: I think that the notion of religion in the archaic sense, is probably done forever except for the ‘stupid people’. And just as the current state religion is democratic pseudoscientific, secular, humanism, any replacement religion will require a narrative and inspirational (transcendent or accommodating) that is […]

  • Gods and Prayers as Unit of Measure

    God and prayer as a unit of measure. Just as we can use each other’s cooperation as a test, we can use prayer to an all knowing god to force ourselves to be honest with ourselves. If  god is similar enough across a population, we can use it as a unit of measure: a method […]

  • Holding Status Issuers Liable

    HOLD THE NOBEL PRIZE COMMITTEE LIABLE FOR THEIR RATING SERVICE? Do you suppose we could make the Nobel Prize committee liable for the certification of pseudoscience? I think we could. Why not? I mean, for all intents and purposes, how is the Nobel Committee any different from the Mortgage Rating Services? Privatizing commons while socializing […]

  • There Is Nothing To Find In The Lies of the Conflationary Prophets

    THERE IS NOTHING TO FIND IN THE LIES OF THE CONFLATIONARY PROPHETS BUT INFANTILISM. —“It seems that, in Genesis, God has legs, and doesn’t know the answers to the questions he asks. It confirms my inclination to the Marcionite Heresy.”— There is nothing there to find. We have our fairy tales, and myths. We have […]

  • Teach Children Spectra, not nouns or verbs.

    THOUGHT OF THE DAY Just as we teach our children nouns, and asians teach their children verbs, what if we all taught our children spectra? In Propertarianism I have guarded against conflation and substitution and enforced causal relations by reliance upon iterating (over and over again) spectra. three points test a line. a spectrum tests […]

  • The Church Of Tomorrow?

    “ANSWER A FEW QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CHURCH OF TOMORROW? If you went to the same church, and had similar rituals, but they drew from all of our history, not just Biblical, and tried to apply the lessons of history to (apolitical) current life and family affairs would that make you more interested in it? If […]

  • Math is Taught as Fiction

    YES, MATHEMATICS IS TAUGHT AS FICTION: “LET US TEACH EVERYONE A VERY INTERESTING AND IMPORTANT LESSON VIA MR JOHN BLACK.” —“Mathematical fictionalism is more tenable than mathematical platonism.”—Melvin Davila Martinez “There are no such things as abstract objects? Prove it.” — John Black The verb ‘to-be’ = ‘exists’. (is, are, was, were, be, being, been) […]

  • Mindfulness In Different Religious Traditions

    shinto achieves mindfulness through precise repetition of ritual in a respectful manner. stoicism achieves mindfulness through small daily task completion in a virtuous manner. buddhism achieves mindfulness through meditation and escape from reality. Islam achieves mindfulness by many memorizations and ritual prayers during every single day. christianity achieves mindfulness by personal and collective prayer (and […]

  • Lets Give Everyone A Precise Language And For The Discussion Of Religion.

    We have been misled to thinking that ‘religion’ requires superstition. But that idea is a product of the authoritarian dogma created by the church under Christianity. It’s simply not true. DECONFLATED, RELIGION CONSISTS OF: 1) Narrative: historical, mythical, supernatural 2) Metaphysical Judgments: (in many forms) 3) Group Evolutionary Strategy: (in many forms ) 4) Normative […]

  • An Objective Analysis Of Cultural Philosophies

    Ill give you the objective model instead: 1-utopians(plato)(hindus), The Utopian strategy is train men to be good,  so that no conflict need occur. 2-truth tellers (aristotle), The Aryan strategy is to resolve conflicts early and quickly so that they cannot be seized in a moment of weakness. 3-truth avoiders (sun tsu), Sun Tzu is the […]

  • If a God Cannot Be Spokent of Truthfully, then How Can it be a god?

    I talk to my god every day. My work is the result of a promise to my god. But like I fight against false statements, false arguments, false promises, and false stories, I also fight against false gods, and the false words of men who create and preserve the false gods. For if god is […]

  • One Cannot Testify to Faith

    If you need faith to justify it, then you cannot testify to it. in other words, you cannot claim it is true.

  • We Will End History As We Started It: With Violence.

    (by James Augustus Berens) We Will Bring About The End Of History. Not through submission but through sovereignty. Not through permission but through demand. Not through falsehoods but through truth. Not through discretionary rule but through rule of natural law. Not through majority monopoly ascent but through minority market consent and dissent. Not through supernatural […]

  • My God is the God of My Ancestors

    My god is very simple. He wants the truth. Because truth gives us power over nature, to bend it to our will. And the power of truth over nature is the source of the ascent of our people by transcendence from beast, to man, to human – and eventually, if successful, to gods. Just as […]

  • We Can Judge The Gods Worthy Or Not

    As far as i know, gods, like the rest of the universe, consist entirely of information. They hold, and transfer information. And by information, we mean, influences upon individual decidability. The question is, what is the quality of the information that they transfer? And how do we measure the consequences of the information that they […]

  • Religion Is Explicable By Scientific Analysis.

    Sorry. Just Is. No Magic Necessary. No Superstition Necessary. No Lies Necessary. 1) myth=history/heroes, 2) ritual=plays/stoicism 3) festivals=sports/holidays/feasts That the ancients used primitive concepts in all walks of life where we no longer do is simply an artifact of the process of accumulating particular rather than analogistic knowledge. What makes people feel spiritual is literally […]

  • Why Is Religion – Meaning Myth And Ritual – Necessary?

    —“Why are mythology and ritual necessary?”—Doug Decidability, opportunity costs and transaction costs. —“??????”—Doug We coordinate our actions a little bit by clear deliberate choices. But mostly we cooperate by many thousands of tie-breakers that we default to loose theories of the ‘good’: narratives. In other words, religions provide means by which, in those many thousands of choices, […]
