Finding Reason

We received a message from Thom Landon. He said: "Your words, ideas and philosophy confirm what I have begun to understand. Thanks for putting up this site and I hope this note lets you know that in this difficult process of unlearning, your perspective is welcome and appreciated.  When I found the words your write and speak, it was like my thoughts spoken aloud.  It's good to know that the logical framework of reason can be seen and understood outside of the self." Here's the full message...

Marquez,

I read your works and listened to the youtube presentation and realized that I had gone through a process almost identical.  I reject athiesm as a response to theism.

Your words, ideas and philosophy confirm what I have begun to understand.  Reason is enough.  All the rest is a game to be played or entertainment. The really great stuff that's happening now, the amazing discoveries aren't made with dogma, they are made through the tool of reason.

I am also not a scientist, but I know enough about science to realize that it offers the best and most reasoned explanation for all of the really important questions. Recently, I've started reading Sam Harris and Dan Ariely and the picture of the mind and why we act irrationally suddenly begins to make sense. The future philosophy of thought integrates the new ideas on how and why we process new information and why we act irrationally (individually) and how we can eliminate harm (collectively).

Thanks for putting up this site and I hope this note lets you know that in this difficult process of unlearning, your perspective is welcome and appreciated.  When I found the words your write and speak, it was like my thoughts spoken aloud.  It's good to know that the logical framework of reason can be seen and understood outside of the self.

Best,

Thom

Hello Thom,

I appreciate your time sending your thoughts through. It helps me when I know that there are people out there who are hearing me and who are sharing the same thoughts, feelings and experiences with me. It spurs me to do more.

Thanks,
