An idea worth spreading
Faith is distinct from knowledge. Most people confuse their beliefs and/or faith for knowledge and this causes a lot of problems in the world. Humankind's ability to communicate complex and abstract ideas is perhaps the most profound event in evolution of life on this planet. It is a skill, which gives us unprecedented creative power in our lives and in the world we create. Everything we believe about human rights or religion or politics exists only inside of language, meaning that some human made it up at some point. We have control over the definition of human rights and we have the power to change the world if we choose to do so!
I'm passionate about
Practical Philosophy, the direction my country is going, interesting questions, Spiritual Development (as an atheist...but also interested in what others are doing).
Talk to me about
Anything interesting! Don't try to sell me though, I won't listen to that very well. I like Big Ideas, profound questions, but only if they are practical!
