Var litt i tvil på om jeg skulle plassere denne i denne tråden, men i og med at religion er litt On-topic valgte jeg å poste den her likevel:D

Dawkins er tilsynelatende fan av Breaking Bad. "Science... it works, bitches." (1:15). Litt komisk og forfriskende å se en ellers seriøs professor si noe slikt på en konferanse. ;)

Komisk helt på slutten og... en enslig butthurt feminist roper ut "I don't appreciate the sexist language there!" :D

Tror han gjorde en skikkelig bommert ved 1:00 men... "If you base medicine on science, you kill people."

Til hun feministen på slutten: Stop being such a little bitch!

Charles Negy, Professor, Says Students Showed 'Religious Arrogance And Bigotry' In A Letter Later Posted On Reddit

Dr. Charles Negy, anassociate professor of psychologyat the University of Central Florida, had to email an extra, elementary lesson to his students -- one so basic and of such societal value thatit was posted on Reddit.

Striking a tone somewhere between ivory tower and a mother's lecture, Negy challenged his students to step outside the context of their own cultures for a frank discussion on religious bigotry, a talk apparently interrupted by several students expressing bigoted views, in Negy's opinion.

"We're adults. We're at a university," he concludes. Read the letter below to how he arrived at this point.

Hello, Cross-Cultural students, I am writing to express my views on how some of you have conducted yourself in this university course you are taking with me. It is not uncommon for some-to-many American students, who typically, are first-generation college students, to not fully understand, and maybe not even appreciate the purpose of a university. Some students erroneously believe a university is just an extension of high school, where students are spoon-fed “soft” topics and dilemmas to confront, regurgitate the “right” answers on exams (right answers as deemed by the instructor or a textbook), and then move on to the next course.

Not only is this not the purpose of a university (although it may feel like it is in some of your other courses), it clearly is not the purpose of my upper-division course on Cross-Cultural Psychology. The purpose of a university, and my course in particular, is to struggle intellectually with some of life's most difficult topics that may not have one right answer, and try to come to some conclusion about what may be “the better answer” (It typically is not the case that all views are equally valid; some views are more defensible than others). Another purpose of a university, and my course in particular, is to engage in open discussion in order to critically examine beliefs, behaviors, and customs. Finally, another purpose of a university education is to help students who typically are not accustomed to thinking independently or applying a critical analysis to views or beliefs, to start learning how to do so. We are not in class to learn “facts” and simply regurgitate the facts in a mindless way to items on a test. Critical thinking is a skill that develops over time. Independent thinking does not occur overnight. Critical thinkers are open to having their cherished beliefs challenged, and must learn how to “defend” their views based on evidence or logic, rather than simply “pounding their chest” and merely proclaiming that their views are “valid.” One characteristic of the critical, independent thinker is being able to recognize fantasy versus reality; to recognize the difference between personal beliefs which are nothing more than personal beliefs, versus views that are grounded in evidence, or which have no evidence.

Last class meeting and for 15 minutes today, we addressed “religious bigotry.” Several points are worth contemplating:

Religion and culture go “hand in hand.” For some cultures, they are so intertwined that it is difficult to know with certainty if a specific belief or custom is “cultural” or “religious” in origin. The student in class tonight who proclaimed that my class was supposed to be about different cultures (and not religion) lacks an understanding about what constitutes “culture.” (of course, I think her real agenda was to stop my comments about religion).

Students in my class who openly proclaimed that Christianity is the most valid religion, as some of you did last class, portrayed precisely what religious bigotry is. Bigots—racial bigot or religious bigots—never question their prejudices and bigotry. They are convinced their beliefs are correct. For the Christians in my class who argued the validity of Christianity last week, I suppose I should thank you for demonstrating to the rest of the class what religious arrogance and bigotry looks like. It seems to have not even occurred to you (I'm directing this comment to those students who manifested such bigotry), as I tried to point out in class tonight, how such bigotry is perceived and experienced by the Muslims, the Hindus, the Buddhists, the non-believers, and so on, in class, to have to sit and endure the tyranny of the masses (the dominant group, that is, which in this case, are Christians).

The male student who stood up in class and directed the rest of the class to “not participate” by not responding to my challenge, represented the worst of education. For starters, the idea that a person—student or instructor—would instruct other students on how to behave, is pretty arrogant and grossly disrespects the rights of other students who can and want to think for themselves and decide for themselves whether they want to engage in the exchange of ideas or not. Moreover, this “let's just put our fingers in our ears so we will not hear what we disagree with” is appallingly childish and exemplifies “anti-intellectualism.” The purpose of a university is to engage in dialogue, debate, and exchange ideas in order to try and come to some meaningful conclusion about an issue at hand. Not to shut ourselves off from ideas we find threatening.

Universities hold a special place in society where scholarly-minded folks can come together and discuss controversial, polemic, and often uncomfortable topics. Universities, including UCF, have special policies in place to protect our (both professors’ and students’) freedom to express ourselves. Neither students nor professors have a right to censor speech that makes us uncomfortable. We're adults. We're at a university. There is no topic that is “off-limits” for us to address in class, if even only remotely related to the course topic. I hope you will digest this message, and just as important, will take it to heart as it may apply to you.

With Germany Changing How It Collects the Church Tax, Many Are Leaving Their Churches Altogether

If you live in Germany, then you’re aware of something called a Church Tax.

As far as I can understand it — forgive me if I screw this up — here’s how this works: When you pay your income taxes, a portion of it (8 or 9%, depending on where you live) is set aside by the government for your place of worship if you’re Catholic, Protestant, or Jewish. (If you’re a theist, you almost certainly fall into one of those categories.) This amounts to several billion Euros for the Roman Catholic Church and various Protestant (Lutheran) churches.

What if you’re not religious? No problem. That money won’t go to a church. In fact, you won’t have to pay the amount at all! But in order to be exempt, you have to officially declare that you’re not a member of those religious groups.

– Healer er et noe stigmatisert begrep. Det blir av mange mystifisert eller latterliggjort. Det naturlige fremmedgjøres. Kroppens egen intelligens undervurderes

Gullkorn fra slutten av "artikkelen":

– Hva er din sterkeste opplevelse som healer?

Det er mange, men en av dem er en klient med benlengdeforskjell

som kom inn til healing, og gikk ut med lik benlengde etter en behandling.

Healingen trenger inn på DNA- og cellenivå, ja faktisk i atomene av dine celler. Og det er mitt spesialfelt uten noe mer ord om det. Når jeg «ser» klienten skanner jeg raskt over aura og tuner inn på hva som er i veien og bør rettes opp med healing. Jeg legger mine hender på klientens kropp forskjellige steder, og «stråler» inn

healingenergien og forminsker eller fjerner det som var problemet pluss retter opp til harmonisk tilstand, sier Aanes som blant annet er utdannet innen den japanske healingmetoden Raiki.

Wow, det der er bare en helt vill påstand. Jeg har problemer med at healere fremmer slike påstander uten noen som helst form for bevis.

Jeg kan godt tro at folk får positiv effekt av avspenning og alt det der som følger med healing. Vi vet at avspenning er positivt for helsen vår, det betyr ikke at det er healingen i seg selv som hjelper. Det blir i grunn sekundært etter placeboeffekten. Placebodefekten av Gunnar Tjomlid står neste på leselista mi, gleder meg til den (y)

Flere gullkorn på den siden, i stedet for å gå med en aluminiumsfoliehatt på hodet og vise for hele verden at du er en idiot, så kan du i stedet gå med en Pluss-Minus medaljong som viser for hele verden at du er en ..................... idiot! ;)

"Elektromagnetisk stråling kan være medvirkende årsak til f.eks tretthet, stikkninger i huden, muskelsmerter, ryggplager og hodepine, men ved å benytte en Pluss-Minus brikke (eller medaljong) nøytraliseres denne strålingen. Lavfrekvent stråling tiltrekkes og fanges opp av brikken slik at EM-feltet blir dermed redusert til et minimum."
