Should we "teach the controversy"?
Hey Gabo, hope u r great! lets teach our children not to observe either e christian view or the darwinian view, but to investigate the evidence themselves! its fashionable these days to have an archaic view of christianity. is this objective thinking, or you're simply going into your anti-christian mode of arguing? "horoscope style..?" i appreciate your sincerity though. ok, let me defend a few ideas. the two major verses on creation Gen 1:1 & John 1:1 when calculated numerically produce the result of the 2 math constants pi & e respectively. pi is correct to four decimal places, & with this talk of the constants changing, we r in for a rude awakening! i recomend u read the works of the russian mathematician Dr Ivan Panin who was able to demonstrate scientifically that the bible could not have originated in the mind of man. "the inspiration of the scriptures scientifically demonstrated." you'll find it free online! read it if you're not scared of being proven wrong! Hebrews 11:3 "...the things which are seen were not made of the things which do appear." information is immaterial. & biblical propositions r objective! its also interesting to note that the bible records history before it happened! cf Daniel 7-12! approx 500yrs before the fact! in fact, the scripture was translated into greek septuagint 300yrs before the actual events, thats an objective reference point for u. i could site many. but please read dr panin then we can talk sense. A good and just God will punish the transgression of his law! lets not forget the fact that we did not create ourselves. if a creator is responsible, and we do him wrong (by doing what he dis-approves), he has every right to call even the death penalty (we call it justice!). i wont debate homosexuality... the fact that in this age we have not been judged owes its explanation to the fact that he is merciful. good doesnt mean that you're let off when u do wrong... i think you need re re-read your bible after you have suspended your prejudices. lets talk!

Why be a good person?
"Why be a good person..?" Because its good! You're the one person to answer that question... i think its essential to answer the question, "what is good? or who is a good person? and, why do we have the category good in the first place?" Being "good" makes life possible. i think "goodness" is at the essential core of being human. Without "goodness," we have "Adolf Hitler, Genghis Khan, Mussolini..." the list is endless. Its being good as compared to being what? "bad?" whats the use in that?? being good has more to it than being bad. its giving life as opposed to killing it, healing as opposed to hurting or bruising/injuring, feeding as opposed to depriving... ad infinitum. Smile, dance, sing... its all good!

Should we "teach the controversy"?
Christianity makes statements about reality doesnt it? if those statements are considtent with reality objectively, then its claims are credible. information science is found in the bible, quantum physics, even the fact that our universe is finite! the idea that the earth is hinged upon nothing, or the idea that the essence of "being is a nothingness." a jewish rabbi was able to extrapolate a 10 dimensional universe from a reading of Genesis. a four dimensional (directly observable) reality is found in Ephesians... the list could go on... Even the bible itself call the dilligent student to objectively verify its truths! The reason, at least as far as i am concerned is that most people comment on christianity without a grounded understanding of it. as an individual, do your homework first, a superficial understanding is not good enough. ummm, not good enough for everyone... i jus think its bad science plain simple! :)

Is Social Business the future of capitalism ?
i think it is Hassan. if you look through history, the world has tried both socialist and capitalist models, each one having essentially desirable characteristics. I think we are just looking for common ground between the two. in essence, the social business model is the best of both worlds. i suppose Hegel was right "thesis + antithesis = synthesis." it seems clear to me however, that capitalism and the drive for profit will stand the test of time, in a contest that will often see capitalism embracing elements of socialism.... ala "social business?" unlikely in the way we would want it, but in a way closer to the social business ideal.
