The Human Truth Foundation Website

My new web domain is a collection of pages and texts on society, sociology, subculture, human sexuality, epistemology (how do we know what's true?) and a little philosophy.

It replaces two previous subdomains.

Interesting article, and one that I'd broadly agree with. Even if individual scientists can become dogmatic regarding 'pet' theories, science as a whole will eventually adopt a more correct theory, even if it does take a while (I think plate tectonics is one of the best examples of this - the geologists of the day largely shouted it down, but it has become *the* unifying theory for explaining so much of terrestial geography).

Good example. I think the scientific community is wide and complex enough that competing interests serve as a strong source of innovation between old and new theories. There's nothing worse than your academic rival producing a better, more accurate theory than your own! A great big competition, evolution of the fittest (as in the way theories predict data that fit the results...) *ramble ramble*

Thanks for the comment :-)

Experience the Ilusion of God

4.That we can stimulate parts of the brain and induce mystical and spiritual experiences in people means that such experiences are explained by the neurological sciences whether or not there is actually a 'spiritual realm'.

How were these experimental experiences produced? Were they chemically induced? If so, how do you explain for people having these experiences just out of the blue, coming upon them randomly.......I have had a few experiences where I felt God was communicating with me which just came upon me suddenly......I wasn't even thinking about God, nor praying or any such thing........one time I was reading; another time I was in a restaurant having a meal. The only thing I can say about the experiences is that they appeared not to come from myself, not something that I could have possible projected........how does the brain suddenly create these "illusions"? Please respond to me by email........jeanetteflint@verizon.net
