Introduction
Many people argue today that there is no alternative to capitalism: much of the last century can be seen as a conflict between capitalism and communism, and capitalism won.  History is no longer going anywhere…

[Back to Climate Change]
The 'Paris Agreement' in 2015 is when the nations of the world agreed that their target was to keep the average surface temperature no more than 1.5 degrees C above the pre-industrial figure. There are a number of problems…

Introduction
You can stop worrying about the danger of Artificial Intelligence taking over the world: it has already happened.  The world is run by organizations - businesses, multinational corporations - which operate according…

[Back to Climate Change]
Introduction
Why are the nations of the world not doing more to address the challenge of climate change?  There are probably many reasons.  But it's a reasonable assumption that one major barrier preventing faster and more…

Paul Hazelden commented on Brian Monahan's article Leaping into Faith?
""we need to differentiate evidence from explanation" - very good point!  I think we need to take this thought away from the comments and address it as a topic in its own article.

Paul Hazelden commented on Brian Monahan's article Leaping into Faith?
"Mark, I'm not clear what you mean by 'there is absolutely no evidence', but it seems that the way you are using the phrase is not what I would mean, and the phrase itself could be misleading in this context.
When I say that all faith is based on…"

Paul Hazelden commented on Brian Monahan's article Leaping into Faith?
"Mark, I have offered catching a bus as an example of ordinary, everyday faith being exercised.  Clearly, many other examples could be chosen.
But if you want to say that faith in the real world - in the lives of people - often has no evidence,…"

Brian Monahan commented on Paul Hazelden's article Faith
"I'm probably quibbling here - but I wouldn't call the idea of the bus driver acting to deliver us to our destination an act of faith, as such.  For me, this excellent example has much more to do with "trust" - which for me is a weak form of…"

Mark Collins commented on Paul Hazelden's article Wonder, Mystery and Awe
"I've just re-read my comment and I should first apologise for the grammar. Dreadful!  I think you are saying exactly the same thing in different words - the woodland walk is a good illustration.  How we feel is often massively influenced by our…"

Paul Hazelden commented on Paul Hazelden's article Wonder, Mystery and Awe
"Mark,  that is fair enough as a personal reaction.  I'm not claiming everyone - or even that most people - feel this way.  But I keep on having conversations with people, both inside organised religion and outside it, who tell me that this is their…"

Mark Collins commented on Paul Hazelden's article Wonder, Mystery and Awe
"I am deeply suspicious words such as 'deeper reality'. By definition there is only one reality.  If something isn't real it is false.  People frequently credit deeply felt emotion to outside influence, when it is always a personal reaction to…"
