CMP (Canadian Mind Products)’s purpose is to stand up for the rights of plants and animals. Animals also includes cetacea, humans, gay people, atheists, war victims and invertebrates. CMP attempts to inculcate planetary consciousness — concern for the planet as a whole. A subgoal is to teach people to use computers effectively, particularly with the Java computer language.
Not that long ago, rainbows were absolute proof of the existence of god. The thinking was: They are amazing. They are beautiful. I don’t know how they work, so god must have done it.
We did not stop to wonder if there might be some other possibility. Thing after thing that seemed magical turned out to be wonderful, but perfectly understandable, e.g. lightning, tornadoes, hurricanes, storms, floods, St. Elmo’s fire, meteors, meteorites, comets…
Today creationists keep playing the same game, pointing at anything they don’t (or won’t) understand, e.g. origin of life, speciation, eyeballs while shouting I don’t understand it; god must have done it. including when there are long-standing scientific explanations.
Don’t Forbid Casually
One should never forbid what one lacks the power to prevent.~ Napoléon Bonaparte (born:1769-08-15 died:1821-05-05 at age:51)
What Is Death?
What is death? No more experience, worry or fear. No more ability to influence the universe and no more responsibility to do so. It seems to me about as scary as the end of a roller coaster ride or going under anaesthesia.~ Roedy (born:1948-02-04 age:68)
