Carr: Science Should Be A New Focus

Written by

"Today's announcement by Minister Kim Carr of the first national science communication report paints a relatively poor picture of science education in Australia... In an attempt to wean Australia off its exclusive diet of taking national heroes from the sporting arena, Senator Carr noted that 'This report correctly calls for a national, coordinated strategy to catapult science into the classrooms, boardrooms and lounge rooms of Australia.' "

It's about time someone in politics pushed for this.

Anthropocentrism - Word Of The Day

Written by
  1. Regarding humans as the central element of the universe.

  2. Interpreting reality exclusively in terms of human values and experience.

"Anthropocentrism." The American Heritage? Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition. Houghton Mifflin Company, 2004. 18 Jan. 2010. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Anthropocentrism>.

This concept is sometimes known as humanocentrism or human supremacy. It is especially strong in certain religious cultures, such as the common Protestant Christian translation of Genesis 1:26, which is taken to state that God gave man dominion over all other earthly creatures. The current Latin Vulgate, the official Bible of the Catholic Christian church, as well as St. Jerome's original, lack this anthropocentric nature, instead saying that God holds man responsible for the care and fate of all earthly creatures.

Happy New Year!

Written by

Discussing religions, beliefs and superstition can get a little draining. However when I read the news and look at how bigotry, ignorance and superstition continue to enslave humanity and waste the lives of many, I am reminded of what is at stake and the importance to continue moving on and make differences... no matter how small. So I look forward to 2010, for all Reasonists, it will bring many more opportunities for which we can stir someone to think, ask questions and wonder. May you all have a happy and prosperous new year!!!

The Echo Of Life

Written by
A man and his son were walking in the forest. Suddenly the boy
trips and feeling a sharp pain he screams, "Ahhhhh."

Surprised, he hears a voice coming from the mountain, "Ahhhhh."

Filled with curiosity, he screams, "Who are you?" but the only
answer he receives is: "Who are you?"

Watch Geert Wilders Film Fitna

Written by
You're probably asking: Who is Geert Wilders? Wilders is a Dutch Politician who brought out a film called Fitna. So you can get a balanced view of the issue, watch the video for yourself here it is: Fitna Part 1 of 2
Fitna Part 2 of 2
Instead of focussing on the questions that Wilders posed, Muslim protesters claim that Wilders insulted Mohammed. Of course, in their minds, it justifies killing him. Oh and while they were on the topic, they chant their true intentions: For Islam To Dominate The World.
