Response to Humanist_Activist (Original post)

7. Well, apparently, we can understand the world we live in through "other ways of knowing"

but the folks that assert these "other ways of knowing" have yet to give even a single example of knowledge gained via some "other way of knowing." They are unable to show just one advancement of understanding our world that has come about through some "other way of knowing."

Why do I bring this up? Because it is exactly the type roadblock you describe that hinders our collective advancement of understanding our world.


I think that is why there seems to be all of this religious blather and ballyhoo going on right now; religion is being threatened with extinction, and it has many of the folks who believe the religious claims of the supernatural very, very scared. But we, as humans, will eventually move beyond it. I only hope I get to see the next great step past religion happen in my lifetime.
