Possibilianism. A Way Out of the New Dark Ages.

leave a comment »

Kevin Kelly wrote after watching the video:

Agnostics end with the lack of an answer.
Possibilians begin with the lack of an answer.

Agnostics say, we can’t decide between this and that.
Possibilians say, there are other choices than this or that.

Agnostics say, I Don’t Know, it’s impossible to answer that question.
Possibilians say, I Don’t Know, there must be better questions.

Both start in humility, but agnosticism is bounded by our great ignorance, while possibilism is unbounded by our limited knowledge.

I think that both Dr. David Eagleman (Neuroscientist) and Kevin Kelly have shown a possible way out of the polarized and mean-spirited conversation that has captured and continues to torture mainstream America.

The Season of the Winter Solstice

At this season of the winter solstice may reason prevail

There are no gods,
No devils, no angels, No heaven or hell.
There is only our natural world.
Religion is but myth and superstition
that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.

bspcommentWords can not describe the depth of ignorance that grips the United States today. I can only imagine the batshit insane stuff these idiots are going to start spewing when the U.S. economy really starts to go south.

“The Republican base is now made up of religious and neoconservative ideologues, and the uneducated white underclass with a token person of colour or two up front on TV to obscure the all-white, all reactionary, all backward — there-is-no-global-warming — rube reality. Actual conservative, let alone the educated classes, have long since fled.”

Frank Schaeffer, Author of Crazy for God on the current state of the Republican party during an interview with D.L. Hughley.  He is also stated in his book, “In the mid 1980s I left the Religious Right, after I realized just how very anti-American they are…” He has also written an open letter to Republicans on the Huffington Post.

Canadian Prime Minister Says Taliban Cannot Ever Be Defeated

leave a comment »

cdn_afghan

Ottawa Citizen: Prime Minister Stephen Harper has had plenty to say lately about the West’s intervention in Afghanistan, much of it imminently sensible and overdue. No wonder the Americans are paying attention.

But it’s important for Harper to have this conversation directly with the Canadian people, who sense that our Afghanistan policy is evolving but in a direction that is not entirely clear.

In recent days, first at his press conference with U.S. President Barack Obama and then in a CNN interview, Harper has incrementally let Americans know that Canada could be pulling back from a security role in Afghanistan and redirecting efforts toward training and development. He also made it clear that the Canadian government wants to know the U.S. “strategy for success and for an eventual departure” in Afghanistan.

bspcomment Harper clearly understands that Canada’s role in Afghanistan will be a costly albatross for his party as he prepares them for a possible spring or summer election campaign. With the global economy in a complete tailspin and core sectors of Canada’s economy at a virtual standstill (tar sands oil and automotive manufacturing) Harper needs to start trimming spending and the Afghanistan mission will be very difficult to defend in a time when 1000’s of Canadians are losing their jobs and homes.

Even though it is an unpopular statement I believe the majority of the free world now realizes that the Taliban and Al Qaeda will never be defeated in a meaningful enough way to make a difference to Middle East peace. As president Obama stated recently, the western world has to start listening to ALL stakeholders in the Middle East. Not just Israel and Saudi Arabia. Middle East peace will NEVER be achieved without everyone at the table, as difficult as it may be.
