Go to: Simply ... should I read the bible?

RichardofYork's Avatar Jump to comment 78 by RichardofYork

Read it for sure , but prepare to spend a lot of time scratching your head as to why people think these things actually mean anything or for that matter even happened . I'm lost for words when anyone assumes the bible is a history book ,

Go to: Sex: it's a good thing, evolutionarily speaking

I read a book about the evolution of sex some time ago and I'd recommend it to anyone interested in evolution "The Red Queen -sex and the evolution of human nature" by Matt Ridley , excellent read

Go to: Evolution skeptics will soon be silenced by science: Richard Leakey

Sorry to say but Richard Leakey is wrong , theres no way any theory no matter how well evidenced can defeat magic and woolly thinking. And reading some of the comments about the article show that to be so.

Go to: The brain… it makes you think. Doesn't it?

RichardofYork's Avatar Jump to comment 8 by RichardofYork

The Tallis idea seems to be one in which we have an uncaused "I". This "I"stops any crazy talk of our brains just reacting to stimuli .This does seem to boil down to a dualism that might prevent any thoughts of nihilism and amorality by some people . I suppose thats a healthy fear and one his unconscious brought to the fore as a survival technique.
