Why people do what we do, and how we can do better.

Evil vs. The Vanishing Heap

Does evil exist? Is it an entity, a collective, a force? – or – Is evil like a heap … Suppose I show you a heap of sand, and you agree it is a heap of sand. If I remove one grain, then you would agree that it is still a heap of sand, and if I keep […]


The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule is usually articulated as “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” The world would certainly be a happy, healthy, productive place if everyone followed the Golden Rule, and yet some misrepresent it. For example, the masochist would have people beat him, so does the Golden Rule mean he […]

However, today’s leaders […]


The Soul Of Humanity

Evolution has given the vast majority of us the ability to instinctively know which principles are right and wrong. For example, we are genetically programmed to dislike cheating, pettiness, and short shortsightedness; whereas, we are genetically programmed to admire integrity, open mindedness, tolerance, responsibility, curiosity, and courage. Majority Principles are even more difficult for us […]

There is no evidence that we are anything more than the atoms we are made of, and if we are nothing more than the atoms we are made of, then our every thought is a physical (atomic, chemical, electrical, quantum, etc.) reaction. Assuming there is no random element to the physical reactions we call thought, […]
