Life. Humans. Rocks. Scientific dogmatism.


Hunting from a distance of 27,000 light years, astronomers have discovered an unusual carbon-based molecule contained within a giant gas cloud in interstellar space. The discovery suggests that the complex molecules needed for life may have their origins in interstellar space. (1)

Sure. Why not?
But why limit the “discovery” to interstellar space?

If you believe life is all about molecules and particles moving around, then the origins of life are everywhere.

In space.
In a hot cake.
In spaghetti.
In rocks.

It doesn’t matter.

Because lifeless life is everywhere.
It is consciousness which makes us who we are.
Denying that simple fact we experience every day IS dogmatism.

And we have to note it every time such a foolish “discovery” makes the headlines.

Look at the air and the ground on which you stand.
Watch carefully.
Find the differences…

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!
