In an African tribe, when someone makes something wrong, they put him in the center of the village and for 2 days they tell him all the good things he has done. They believe that people are inherently good and that every bad thing they say is just a cry out for help… (1)

The evil is out there.
And the only way to defend against it is to use good.

Try to punish and inflict evil on a person who has done harm,
and you will burry the goodness inside him for ever.

Jesus Christ died and forgave his killers.
Sure almost none of us has the strength to do something like that.
But this is exactly what shows us that this is the right thing to do…

He is the creator of Huo Chess, one of the smallest micro-chess programs ever that is perfect for educational purposes. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy, as well as the philosophy of the irrational. 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. Since our thought is dictated by our assumptions, the only way to free it and know cosmos as it is, is to think irrationally and destroy everything we have built. 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. We should stop thinking in order to think. Credo quia absurdum!

One thought on “Babemba. Forgiving. Being inherently good. Being afraid to deal with evil…”

  1. “…they put him in the center of the village and for 2 days they tell him all the good things he has done.”
    I thought our “progressive” society is doing that already. At least our justice system celebrates the bad childhood of the perps and bash their victims.
