Why Multiculturalism does not work

Why Multiculturalism does not work

Multiculturalism is not simply the idea of letting other cultures into a country and benefiting from their contribution and being anti-multiculturalism is not the same as being anti-immigration or intolerant of other cultures. I love the richness and diversity that migration has brought to Australia. I would not want to go back to the old […]

You are a function of the Universe

I saw this quote by Alan Watts and consider it very profound and worthy of contemplation. I decided to create a meme for it.

Demise of my childhood hero – John Lennon

I was a child of the 60s.  Not in the sense of being their and participating in that amazing decade of change.  I mean I was born at the beginning of the 60s and observed it as a child.  My earliest musical memory was trying to sing along to a song which I incorrectly interpreted […]

The Three camps

I recently watched a talk by Rupert Sheldrake and Bruce Lipton with the title A Quest Beyond the Limits of the Ordinary given in 2007. I have been following their work for some time so I was excited to see the both on the same platform. They are the vanguard of generation of scientists who are challenging […]

Religious Moderates more dangerous?

just watched a one hour talk by Sam Harris on his 2004 book ‘The End Of Faith – Religion, Terror And Future Of Reason‘ given to the New York Society for Ethical Culture at the Center for Inquiry in 2005. Sam attacks the prevailing premise that Religion is such a great force for good that it […]

Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants

This phrase caught my imagination many years ago and is something I continued to contemplate from time to time. When I decided to write about it here, the first thing I did was to look up the quote. I found a number of variations going back to the twelfth century but all with the same […]

THE ANTICHRIST by Friedrich Nietzsche

I recently used a quote by Nietzsche and that got me thinking about how often he is quoted by people that have never read any of his works. Most using quotes by him probably do not even know much about his life. In my youth I did read two of his works; ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra’ […]

Existence of God

Review: The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins In his book ‘The God Delusion, Richard Dawkins attempts to disprove the existence of God and make the case for atheism but actually never really addresses the most fundamental philosophical questions about the meaning of life and our very existence. When attacking the concept of God, Richard Dawkins […]

The Death Of Darwanism

The Death Of Darwanism

In a previous post I reviewed the book ‘The God Delusion’ by Richard Dawkins and mentioned that he argued the case for Darwin’s theory of evolution. I found it surprising that any scientist and a biologist at that would still be promoting the theories of Darwin which have already been fundamentally disproven by the latest […]

What If The Shit Is A Gift?

I went through a very traumatic experience in 2008 with an encounter with a psychopath and this caused me to reevaluate much of my life. I now see this experience as initiating my own search for truth within and today I am happier than I have ever been a feel a great inner peace. I […]
