Science, Religion, Philosophy Wires

Everyday life is full of examples where people think in ways dictated by their dogmas or their false impressions. I like science, so I am prejudiced for science. I like religion, so I am prejudiced for religion. I am unaware of both so I just copy-paste the opinion of others on the science-vs-religion matters. Thinking clearly in this era of “data” is becoming more and more difficult. And if someone believes that there is actually a “war” between science and religion, then reading Philosophy Wires on the “Harmonia Philosophica” Blogger Portal is a “must”…

This page will be constantly updated with random selected Philosophy Wires by me, the author (Spyridon Kakos), so as to provide an insight on what most people lack today: a clear way of thinking without the false impression that “they are right” (and, thus, the others are “wrong”). Especially when it comes to science and religion, things can get easily out of hand since both sides are sometimes too fanatical to see the truth (if such thing even exists)… Most of the times, both science and religion are just sides on the same coin. And someone would be surprised to see how many things both share in common…

1. Philosophy Wire: 21 May and CERN – Science, the new religion?

Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2011-05-24]: The predictions of a evangelist that the end of the world will occur on May 21 was disproved his former followers feel disappointed. Many of them try to get back the money they had given to support the dissemination of the message that the world will soon end. At the same time a similar story is in progress: scientists announced that…

2. Philosophy Wire: The hypocrisy of vaccinations and the value of simple things (such as clean water)…

Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2011-06-11]: The Global Alliance of vaccinations and Immunization calls on donors to give more money to extend the vaccination program in Africa and other poor regions of the world. According to the Alliance the main causes of pneumonia and diarrhea – the leading causes of death for children under 5 years old in Africa – can be prevented by vaccination. So… Wait a moment! Pneumonia? Diarrhea? When was I vaccinated for these things?!?!? The success rate of a vaccine rarely (if not never) is…

3. Philosophy Wire: The brain synapses and the stupidity of “scientists”…

Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2010-12-20]: Scientists reached the conclusion that defects in the neural synapses of the brain are responsible for many brain diseases. Very “scientific” conclusion. It is like saying: your car engine does not work well because there is a problem with your can engine! The brain is…

4. Philosophy Wire: I have discovered alien bacteria! Nuh, I don’t believe you… You are not an astrobiologist!

Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2011-03-09]: A scientist recently examined meteorite sections with an electron microscope and discovered fossils of bacteria in it. The conclusion was direct and simple: he had discovered extraterrestrial bacteria. However his “fellow” scientists did not accept his conclusions and bombarded him with objections. The objections were “objective”: How do we know that those bacteria did not result from contamination here in Earth? (we do not know the truth, but that doen’t the fact that the fossils were found in a cross-section within the meteorite matter?) How can he reach such conclusions when he is an astrophysicist and not an astrobiologist? (probably you have to…

5. Philosophy Wire: Strawberries, cacao and less evolved species (like humans)…

Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2010-12-27]: Scientists discovered that strawberry and cacao have more genes than the genes in the human DNA (source: news article 1news article 2). In the past we believed that we are the more “evolved” species because we have more genes. More information = Better, claimed the supporters of the materialistic view of life. The Human Genome Project started with the bold goal to map the genome of the most evolved species: human. When it finished we decided to…
