Lonely Yoda

November 19, 2007

Inspired flash video. workplace and child friendly.

I had a dream last night featuring the beginning (sadly not the action) of a duel between Darth Voldemort and Harry Skywalker. Darth You-know-who had a cane for a wand. Yes, they were dueling with wands rather than light sabers. The emporer was hanging around somewhere too.

God As Aspirations

November 9, 2007

In the Archery Analogy, God is seen as a target at which we aim. As in archery, where we aim high to adjust for gravity, so too with moral development: we create an imaginary spot, above our actual target, and aim there even though we know we won't actually reach it.

Suffering, Evil and the Existence of God (Stanley Fish)

November 6, 2007

Professor Stanley Fish writes about two new books addressing the question of the existence of evil in his NY Times article Suffering, Evil and the Existence of God. It is a useful review of two works that present an intriguing counterpoint to each other. Not surprisingly there is quite a bit of debate in the comments, most of it anti-religious.

Green Acre - The Future Center of Baha'i Learning in North America

November 2, 2007

Green Acre Bahá'í School, in far southern Maine, is already a center of learning. But one day it will be the Bahá'í center of learning in North America, or so, prophetically, has 'Abdu'l-Bahá said. Perhaps "exhortationally" is more accurate than "prophetically", since his prophetic words are themselves a directive to the Bahá'ís. And when you think about the number of colleges and universities that will need to be built in coming years in order to meet the demand of an ever-growing population, you realize it is not at all infeasible that there will, one day, be highly-respected school here.
