                @EightImmortals: Where is not rewarding people who parrot back the 'truth' & conforming. Schooling rewards & trains us that way.

                I wish it wasn't that way, but that's only a wish!

                In my own University teaching I championed the concept of Uncertainty - the more we think we know, paradoxically the less we may know & understand. It's necessary to go beyond our limitations. I find it exhilarating, others find it very scary!

                I invited Artists into my business lectures. I ran play workshops for adults to change thinking & develop creativity in Science…

                Yes, that was not welcomed by some lecturers who tried to have me removed, circulated gossip & lies. But the University supported me. Lecturers told me I was setting "too high standards" - meaning they might have to change & gain new skills. I was simply learning & teaching - something they had forgotten long ago.
                But it probably happens in all workplaces!

                But why are you believing this gossip? It's being amplified by people who want to take advantage of people believing gender wars etc are every where!
                Because it reinforces your own beliefs??

                All groups, including alternative groups in our society expect the same sort of dress & thinking from its believers. It's always been like this, as far as i've known.

                Almost all organisations have hierarchy, disparities, cliques, & disputes. Social & other conformity is enforced, even if the process is usually invisible.

                Are you saying
                …Religions welcome challenges to their beliefs??
                They seem the most difficult organisations to change!

                …That you welcome challenges to your firmly held beliefs?

                …Or I do?
                I am excited when my old beliefs are challenged - it shows I am alive & learning.

                I've screamed with excitement running out of a Museum in Seoul when I learnt something that went against what I had believed & taught - a wonderful realisation!

                But I've always been an outsider, observing & consulting groups & organisations, rather than working from within. It gives me a different point of view. But it's still too easy to believe my own BS😉

                It's hard to see our group from within its system, but easy to pick fault with others outside our system.

                I spent 2 weeks in August staying with & interacting with visual artists.
                Why? To step outside my usual realm, to challenge my thinking & beliefs. After 10 days I had an epiphany! A wonderful experience of understanding & insights.

                On a trip to Sydney, I had breakfast with a Californian Republican & ardent Trump supporter, who challenged me as to why I held my pet beliefs…
                And then dinner with a 72 year old Socialist who grew up in impoverished working class East End of London. He never wanted to change & wanted to "kill" Trump!

                Both strongly challenged my beliefs - I thanked them.

                All systems protect themselves from change until change is inevitable!

                Others always want to profit from change, to line their own pockets, entrench their power,…

                  @the INFIDEL: Great post man, looks like we're on the same page…generally speaking. :)

                  You asked a couple of questions though.

                  "Are you saying
                  …Religions welcome challenges to their beliefs??"

                  Not at all, I was merely commenting on the university culture by itself. As you said, all human groups have the same foibles regardless of their location.

                  "They seem the most difficult organisations to change!"

                  Indeed, I suspect you know the answer to why that is though. Added to the usual human liabilities that you mentioned, most 'religious' (I hate that word)people believe that their beliefs are 'true' and if something is 'true' in the real sense of the word then it cannot be changed. And while I agree with that in the logical sense, it still raises many questions about whether an individuals or an organisations 'understanding' of a thing is correct or not and whether that particular thing is provable anyway? I find in most areas that in the end, if we are being honest we have to take a leap of faith at some point regardless of whether your worldview is theistically or atheistically based. It's the ongoing journey of discovery that I find exciting. Paradoxically, the more I learn, the less I seem to know and yet for all the emerging grey areas there are still 'buffers of stability' or guidance that don't seem to change.

                  "…That you welcome challenges to your firmly held beliefs?"

                  I used to and I think I still do to a certain degree, the thing is that my current beliefs are the opposite to what I believed for the first half of life (which were received, like most I presume, osmotically through society at large which I never questioned) and have eventuated from MUCH study, reflection and investigation. The upside to that is that I have found answers that seem to 'work', are internally logically consistent and seem very consistent with reality as a whole but the downside is that I haven't really heard any new objections for many years (not meaning to sound arrogant if possible). :) Fortunately having a high degree of confidence in the validity of my basic beliefs I am freed up to explore reality in other directions that seem to be on a different level from the usual topics of thought, distraction and conversation.

                  "I am excited when my old beliefs are challenged - it shows I am alive & learning."

                  Yup, when you're green you grow and when you're ripe you rot. :)

                  Hope all that makes sense.

                  "A good sense of humour is always helpful. Seems you have one."

                  Hey thanks, I usually keep it in my sock drawer with my personality. :)

                    @EightImmortals: Makes sense to me!

                    Before I studied at uni, I was certain about my knowkedge, beliefs, and thinking. The more I learnt, the less certain I was.

                    In my first week, we were out in the field. The instructor asked what were the pile of shells beside the river. I proudly answered "A midden!".

                    I was being introduced to uncertainty & hypotheses testing - a basis of science. While I had been told it was an ancient midden by a local Murri (aboriginal)… Was that true? How could we test the hypothesis?

                    At first I was annoyed for being shown up in front of my peers. Later I realised I was being socialised into a way of thinking important in my field of study.

                    It was not enough to believe, but be able to prove. And that is often very hard work.

                    Believing makes life less complex & manageable in some ways😉 But I prefer challenges.

                    And some areas are outside the scope of Scientific proof!

                    I can't believe I used to believe what I believed years ago😉
                    I would like to think that is wisdom that comes with time, but I still make some of the same mistakes!

                    when you're green you grow and when you're ripe you rot. :)

                    I really like that😊
                    I hope no one ever considers me ripe😉

                    @EightImmortals: As for parrot back the 'truth'

                    I had many interesting roles & positions at uni - while still an undergrad student…

                    I was called in to resolve a dispute in a business school teaching team.

                    The lecturer had made a small mistake while teaching. He told his team to mark that mistake as correct in exams.

                    Of course the students should not be penalised for their lecturers mistake…

                    The team refused to mark a mistake as correct & the lecturer refused to admit that mistake to his students.

                    My support was with the team. If a student went out & told people what he believed to be correct, or taught it… It could have more serious consequences than the reputation of the lecturer.

                    My solution: the teaching teams corrected the mistake during tutorials with small groups of students. The lecturer looked the other way & didn't lose face.

                    [It is like a moral tale. Also known as Rakugo in Shinto traditional storytelling, in Japan]

                    Sometimes this is how wrong information moves out into the world. A small mistake or rumour is repeated & becomes fact.

                    Same happens in telling stories. The mistake over time is built into the story. No one believes it could ever have been another way!

                    (I've appeared on Japanese TV, performing Rakugo - in English😊 Hope I didn't make any mistakes!)

                    •  

                      @the INFIDEL: I know what you mean and I've found that goes for many things we are taught (or told to believe). Unless we question everything until we are personally satisfied that we have the correct, most likely or at least reasonable answer to a particular issue we are doomed to be controlled by those we accept as 'authorities'. The current crisis in science is a great current example of what you meant IMO. Many other examples exist from the 'fake news' spread through mass media to the ambiguous 'truthiness' of wikipedia or Snopes etc. A less controversial issue would be the rumour that you can only digest 30g of protein in a sitting which is what most body builders still believe but it was some bad info from a study back in the 80's. On the topic of the thread, most people are still taught that Haeckels embryos show 'evolution in the womb' so to speak whereas they have been discredited for more than 100 years.

                      Examples abound but from what I've seen, one has to reach a certain point in their personal growth before they are ready to begin their search and nobody can be forced down that trail. A bit like the Matrix I guess …only you can't be plugged back in if you change your mind later. :)

                        @EightImmortals: A Professor of Uncertainty suggested all textbooks should have blank pages at the end of each chapter, so students could grasp that the knowledge needed updating.

                        Another Professor taught me that medical textbooks up to the 1960's showed all babies were deaf. Mothers knew that wasn't true.

                        Media runs with the more interesting stories, even if not fully researched. It sells!
                        So medical stories covering diet like you pointed to - stick around in people's minds. Later correction of stories never grab attention.

                        Aluminium plaques were found in dissected brains of those who died after dementia. The media associated the aluminium in the brain with commonly used aluminum pots. There was never a link, but many still believe it. No one wants the risk of dementia, so clutch at anything to avoid it!

                        I travelled with a documentary maker, who exposed the work of anthropologist Margaret Meade. She asked young islander women about their sex lives. That was a popular topic in 1950's USA, but taboo on the island. (So they made up stories.) She wrote up her paper & it became sensational. Her career was made & her research never questioned… Until after her death by an Australian researcher & the documentary maker!
                        I used the documentary to challenge my students to ask questions of all research!

                        Enjoy your questioning😉

      No one wants to play? So sad😿

      That's an old but successful tactic to recruit used in cults, or oppressive regimes.
      It's a game of who's belief is stronger… Or is it?

      I've observed it's use in different "fringe" religious groups. It's fascinating, but may have terrible consequences for their subject.

      It's best practitioners produce a beautifully choreographed game, where the subject doesn't realise what is happening & thinks they are in control - arguing from their prized belief😉

      Followers engage nonbelievers apparently from the subject's own belief system. The follower uses the approved approach in their books or packs. Most are usually trained & tested in it's use.
      If successful, it leaves the nonbeliever questioning their own beliefs & vulnerable to conversion.

      I've demonstrated this on staunch atheists (who challenged Christians to justify their beliefs). They were stunned they could no longer justify their own beliefs - based on science, philosophy & logic. A friend told me it took weeks for them to recover.
      I was not wanting to change their beliefs, just demonstrating the weakness of strongly held beliefs. A cult would use this vulnerability to recruit a new follower😉

      So which book / pack are we playing from today?
      Maybe the "Classic Refuting pack"

      Refuting Evolution 2 will prepare you to answer the best arguments thrown at you by peers, teachers, neighbours and sceptics.
      …fun for all the family to play😉

      I've played this game before - it would give me an unfair advantage😊

          Winning was never my way. That's no fun!
          It's knowing the likely game that matters.
          And like any of these games, any ulterior motive is always denied.

          Afterall I've taught people the game!

          But maybe you were being friendly to skeptics?
          I'm skeptical about that😉

                          Or was that the question of origin?
                          (Early naturalistic communication programs had trouble distinguishing word order.)

                          And would ask what the question means to you…
                          And why are you asking it?
                          What does certainty mean to you?
                          And why is it so important to you?

                                      As I said - the question you asked is not the real question. It is much deeper.
                                      So no use wasting time on off the shelf scripts.

                                          @thelastnoob: Well Pauline,
                                          A person can & often do hold contradictory beliefs.

                                          Nothing is as simple as your modern day depiction of Gomorrah would have it. Atheists can be nice people - I know a few.

                                          Most atheists probably don't hold anything like the views you attribute to them.

                                          Put your atheist compilations down & mix with a wider range of people to find out!

                                          As Sammy J aptly put it…
                                          If you're afraid of the dark, turn on the light & it won't be so frightening.
                                          Or keep sitting in the dark - your choice.

                                          And you do come from Pauline territory - the Bible Belt of Oz!
                                          Plenty of interesting people there. Frock up & head for the Valley😉

                                            yes i strongly agree about people holding contradictory beliefs it drives me crazy and ill usually take a shot

                                            yes of course i didnt mean all atheists support those things but it is of their doing and they generally don't oppose it and are the strongest promoters of it

                                            babys are sliced up and body parts sold - for medical, beauty etc

                                            child sex grooming is happening when schools teach very young kids highly explicit sexual acts which is what pedos have been doing to get kids used to what is to occur to them

                                            genderbenders are allowing sex offenders into women's toilets and they film and abuse women

                                            these things are taught generally by atheists and are against the Word of God

                                              That's not a response…
                                              This is a response😊

                                              Well if you poorly define a question as you did…
                                              "when does human life begin?"

                                              Is that on this planet?
                                              Or in the womb?
                                              Or something else?

                                              Creationists have simple answers for these complex questions.

                                              In our Western tradition, the second question is decided by our elected legislators, & the courts. They take advice from us and specialists in the field. And it may change at a later date, given new information.
                                              Better ask them. Although you probably have.

                                              You're only the second person in my long life (calculated from the date of my birth mind you!) to ask me that question.
                                              The other was part of a blockade of a Brisbane fertility clinic where medical terminations were legally conducted. I was an observer with a Christian group.

                                              So I never think about this question - the beginning of human life. It just isn't seen as important or relevant to me. It is also far outside the scope of my education in Science.

                                              So I would never give a definitive answer about something I don't know.


                                              I am more concerned about the other end of life… Death!

                                              Now that's the bread & butter issue of religions! It's a great money earner & brings in people who have great fears of that event & what happens next.

                                              Again that is not a concern I have.

                                              Rather when does life end?

                                              I've helped people through the dying process. I meet people with unasked questions about it.


                                              I met Jay, a wonderful man, in Kyoto. We shared an intense, memorable day - while he worked up the courage to ask his questions. After a few drinks he shared his fears. He had terminal cancer, given weeks left to live.
                                              After hours of questions & sharing, he finally asked if it was OK to kill himself. A moral / ethical dilemma. I answered that he knew the answer to that. (It was not my decision to make.)
                                              Afterwards, he was so happy, as a Buddhist, so referred to me as Buddha.


                                              That's just how I am with people.
                                              Christians have referred to me as a "good Christian". We tend to see in others what we want to see & what we relate to.

                                              *So that makes your thoughts about unknown others very worrying! What is going on inside your mind to imagine such horrors in others??
                                              That is the "deeper question" I alluded to!


                                              This year I was recently faced with the death of my Father. He had a cerebral hemorrhage.

                                              I took advice from the specialists, and checked for signs of any response to stimuli. He turned his head to my voice & squeezed my fingers in response to my squeeze. (I've experienced the same response in baby monkeys.) His eyes briefly opened. But he was only responding at the most basic level.

                                              It was his time to go. I still bargained with the Doctors to save him - but I knew it was his time. He was well looked after in Palliative Care, just assisted with pain management & breathing. I was with him as he took his last breath & became silent. His colour changed. He was gone.
                                              As I've done before, I confirmed vital signs were not present & informed medical staff.

                                              If he hadn't died in those last few days, a terrible decision would have had to be made by me, with advice from specialists, based on our scientific knowledge. I knew if he recovered he would never be the same.


                                              So at what point does life end?

                                              And what do we mean by life?

                                              The questions are rhetorical. To reflect on, not to trample mindlessly over without respect.

    @infidel
    elaborate non answer again with philosophical musings
    the question of human life shows that atheists reject basic observable repeatable documented science
    it is important because it is the greatest mass murder of humans ever committed but you seem to not know this and not care
    if you think the question was poorly defined you could have asked me instead of a long message

    Infidel says "So I would never give a definitive answer about something I don't know." then assumes to know about creationists!
    and you are completely wrong that creationists have simple answers to this question, you sure like to assume a lot which is funny coming from a guy who cant figure out what my question means and proceeds to write a long message about something

    you show lack of respect towards life and are uncertain about the beginning and end of human life and what life even is.

    you are asking about my thoughts its because of the things I have see often and experience

    infidel I would enjoy debating you vocally with equal time since I directly answer a question.

    @dm01 I go to an independent baptist church and can easily understand questions and give specific details
    did you want to answer me when an individual human life begins? I assume you believe the ultimate fairy tale of evolution.
    I have original ideas for the table but have not been engaged with anyone here in regards to this question as infidel isnt sure what life is or what my question is about!

      I go to an independent baptist church and can easily understand questions and give specific details

      The 'independent' part I'd already gathered, though Baptist wasn't my first guess to go with it.

      did you want to answer me when an individual human life begins?

      No, not particularly - your opinion on that is of no importance to me and is a distraction from more worthy questions. There's probably an anti-abortion spiel woven in to you answer that I don't really care to hear because, again, in the grand scheme of things, it's not all that important.

      I assume you believe the ultimate fairy tale of evolution.

      You can assume whatever you like; in my experience religious thinking does require a lot of assumptions to be made so it's no surprise to me if you do. I will say though, it's a bit rich calling evolution a fairytale if you're a subscriber to just about any major religions' accounts of creation.

      I have original ideas for the table

      No evidence of that so far, just the usual attempts to frame questions (and distort answers) in such a way that your cookie-cutter arguments can "take them down" the way you've been taught.

      as infidel isnt sure what life is or what my question is about!

      Something tells me you've conflated infidel's restraint and polite answers with ignorance and timidity - I suggest you learn to read between the lines a bit better, like the way infidel has been - they've obviously got you figured out pretty well already.

  •  

    If my opinion conforms to reality it is the truth and my beliefs on human life are exactly this.
    I assume you cannot answer this question which serves to bolster my claim that Christians do science better.

    Evolution is basically the fairy tale of a frog turning into a prince over billions of years although the frog was a rock beforehand

    If you tried to engage in the question you would have read original ideas. How many times do I need to explain this to you???

    Infidel doesn't answer directly and leaves wiggle room of interpretation. That is not my fault or responsibility.

    Funny thing is my original non-religious scientific challenge is still unanswered so please this is another time of many where this happens.

    A victory for Creationism leaving opposition in the dark.

    dm01 you are good at making bland assertions and accusations such as cookie cutter etc but you cant engage in the actual debate or attempt to answer the question. You should consider refraining from negging these posts if you cannot respond to a basic grade 3 level scientific question but make claims we are delusional.

        all i wanted was someone to engage and not keep assuming atheism has answers
        christian scientific beliefs were being scrutinized unjustly

        outcome was supposed to be a proper debate not a silent victory due to silence from opposition

        i showed my atheist mate and he couldn't respond but only say its doesn't prove God exists which I agreed and when i asked him the question he sent me a video of him as Satan talking to me so I am glad its more atheists without answers because they don't have any real answers

            That does count as a win when opposition cannot and will not respond.

      If my opinion conforms to reality it is the truth and my beliefs on human life are exactly this.

      You're regressing to some circular logic there whereby your beliefs must be true, because you believe them to be.

      I assume you cannot answer this question which serves to bolster my claim that Christians do science better.

      I don't even know what question you think I've not answered here, but again you're free to make whatever assumptions you want; but understand assumptions don't actually prove anything.

      Evolution is basically the fairy tale of a frog turning into a prince over billions of years although the frog was a rock beforehand

      I do love your analogy, if only because it opens the door to a multitude of similarly-themed 'rock-frog-prince' analogies to illustrate the claims of creationists; all of which would be an order of magnitude more ridiculous than your evolutionary example here.

      dm01 you are good at making bland assertions and accusations such as cookie cutter

      You are wrong here; cookies (and their associated shape-making implements), when prepared correctly, are anything but bland!

      but make claims we are delusional. …You guys make it too easy. Happy to debate you or your friends or your professor anytime :)

        "your beliefs must be true, because you believe them to be"

        That's all we need in life - to know what we think must be true.

        If people don't believe what I believe it proves they're wrong.

        And if I am attacked for those beliefs, it shows how right I must truely be!

    dm01 even if it is circular if it is true than it remains true so your logical fallacies are a fallacy in this case and you won't know since you cannot engage in the actual question. How can you know if my beliefs are not true and why assume they are not???

    You haven't and said you wont answer question about human life if you are confused please read all text above.

    Evolution textbook teaches life come from a rock and eventually turned into a frog etc I didn't make this up

    dm01 more waffle from you after you refuse to engage the question but waffle on with this other stuff

    you haven't engaged in a proper exchange as you just resort to quotes to prove your non-points need examples read your messages

    get a 'real intellectual' to come here and debate or i am happy to call your professor and you can record it

    2 vs 1 and its too easy since you both waffle on and avoid the question

                  I showed this to my Christian friend who could only remain in stunned silence for several minutes before recanting his religious convictions and then heading down to the pub for a coldy and a cigarette!

                  Better luck next time, noob!

                    @dm01: I apologise you are correct here and I stand corrected genuinely

                    Please note I am a sinner as such

                    I am frustrated by mindless rants and waffle and I really desire to engage and not get sideswiped

                    Dm01 please note that there was no engagement only waffle and blah blah as you guys refused to engage aside from the waffle

                    If you want to test my claims scientifically please stop hiding and do so

                    It is hard to deal with fools or people who come across as such and I don’t mean that offensively also it’s difficult to be gracious to people who have no care of babies being dismembered and dead body parts sold

                    If you want humility I’m happy to admit you are both better than I am yet not in this discussion but In real life terms

                    As far as love goes I wanted you to get all your tribes to engage me so I can demonstrate what I am saying is accurate and true so you can have confidence

                    I always have a high run away rate when I ask this question and when I get a response it’s really foolish

                    Since you know your logical fallacies I hope you don’t end on one

                    Anyway here’s another question
                    “Do you believe in absolute truth?”
