Circumcision, Jews and the (misunderstood) role of Religion…

The German government says Jewish and Muslim communities should be able to continue the practice of circumcision in the name of religious freedom, after a regional court ruled it amounted to bodily harm. (1)

Every time something similar happens, we tend to forget the true nature of religion. Religion is a philosophical system based on the knowledge of people who formed the group of wise men of their time.

And few of us remember that our medicine is not an exact science (see Why Medicine is NOT a pro-Science argument!), but also a system of beliefs based again on the knowledge of some people – like the “alternative” medicine of Chinese is a similar system.

And no matter how wrong all those things might sound to you, Jews have the lowest rate of penis cancer

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
