Ideapod – Religions (continued)

Ideapod – Religions continued

In response to Carissa August 09, 2015

It seems to me, that the more we know, the more we know we don’t know, and the more probabilistic becomes all knowledge.

It seems that many ancient cultures developed quite profound understanding of the patterns of humanity, yet the explanatory frameworks within which they embedded that understanding were far from optimal.

It seems to me to be a serious error to equate the uncertainties and connectedness that modern science is exposing with any conception of God or gods the ancients may have had. There appears little relationship to me – aside from the uncertainty.

It seems that understanding what we are, in terms of the evolution of systems, and the role of cooperation in our past and future, is a far more powerful and empowering set of concepts than any of the older forms. And I acknowledge the utility of those forms, in giving answers to questions that had no “simple” answer until very recently in our history.
