To CDNelly: A technical question: How do you do to quote like this? TY for your help
Now about the post. I'm not judging anyone. but I try to warn against some attitudes that can harm the future of Asgardia in itself. Don't misunderstand me. I don't have any personal problem for example to have a debate on subjects like marijuana legalization at a scientific, moral, economic,... level, but, correct me if I'm wrong, that's not the kind of debate I've seen on FB page. Well, for most of the post, some were interesting indeed.
I maintain the opposite posture to that of daiwa34. Religion and philosophy are part of what human being is. Even atheism is a philosophical option (I insist, it's philosophical, not scientific, and I'm not here denying any importance to philosophy). Lots of human choices for their own development is made using what they deeply believe about human nature, human life, the universe,...
Now I'm agree that some religious fundamentalist deny scientific facts. Fundamentalism is a plague, in this I agree, but you can't condemned all the believers of the earth just because of a few nuts and ignorant. It's a bit like If I say that all nuclear physicists are war criminals because of the invent of the A-Bomb.
To use terms of syllogistic logic: You can't reach a syllogism using a I-type proposition(Particular positive) to reach a Universal conclusion. So here:
A =Some people deny science fact because of metaphysical beliefs (particular)
B= All of these peoples are believers. (universal)
C= all the believers deny science facts .(universal)
You CAN'T DO A+B =C .It's not a logical conclusion. You can never reach a universal conclusion using a particular premise
