Sam Harris and Steven Pinker Live on Stage in Conversation

Sam Harris and Steven Pinker Live on Stage in Conversation

An interesting discussion . I noted ,that part way through this video, i felt, like they’d touched on the issue, with the way what believers are pretty much been taught ,to expect that “our world” is doomed (IE: re Armageddon etc)

This is bound to be one real huge problem for ALL humanity to overcome.Even atheist lives are affected detrimentally by this. Because of it also amounting to a”mind-set“. Mind set whats pre-positioned , pre-set to help cause religiously minded human to relax and not attempt to do anything much, of sorts of things of like what might otherwise help to solve so many problems ,here on earth

This mind-set, could be compared to a similar mind-set held among Brethren groups. IE: the mind-set of what proposes that non believer, are evil people. And the mind-set that by remaing among Brethren,this can some how serve to protect Brethren member from becoming involved in evil

Haaaaa , become blatantly obvious now ,that it (the mind-set) were ALWAYS  total rubbish, belief

I sense that our youth, today, will now be beginning to wake up and wise-up to this problem. Therefore this can help explain the reason for why they nowadays  wont want to remain “associated” with traditional religions

Believers can be-like their very own most-worst enemy ?

Pinker and Harris both displayed, to US all , a great EXAMPLE in which we should aspire to hope be able to become better at discussing controversial issues civilly.

Without need of being required to agree

I know how i have to continue to try to do better. I don’t feel one bit ashamed to openly admit to that either. I’m human

Both of them were also humble enough to admit to changing their beliefs from time to time.

There is no need, for anyone of US, to feel we are in any way “abnormal” , for us to simple decide to change any of our belief

That’s what it take to be humble human?. To act as someone able to openly display humility

Such a great pity that Bruce Hales remain far to small a person , to dare to admit to his own mistakes?. Specially in regard of the almighty botched-up Brethren review .

Bruce Hales was far to far overcome by his own greed . This explain reason for why Bruce allowed manipulation to take precedence, over the ability for family to reunite

 

 

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
