“Is this Islam?” Project

I am setting up a project called “Is this Islam?”

This will expose and examine:

  1. The way Islam is invoked to justify terrorism, oppression, and violence generally.
  2. The work of Muslim writers and others who present Islam as peaceful and non-violent.
  3. The work of Muslim writers and others who advocate Ijtihad, free speech, separation of state and religion.

SOLID VOX: Behind schedule, but launching soon

Unfortunately, I’ve fallen behind schedule over the last couple of weeks with launching the SOLID VOX ™ internet radio podcast project.

This is mainly due to deciding to apply for Liberal Party preselection for the forthcoming state election, which has involved a lot of time and work.

Nevertheless, I’m hoping to get back on track with SOLID VOX™ in the next few days and have spent most of the weekend working on this project, and will be giving it top priority over the next couple of days until it’s ready to roll.

I’ve also accepted another applicant to join the SOLID VOX™ team of presenters. More details soon. :-)

Discover Capitalism: History of Science

Tonight’s meeting studied the development of Science in the mid to late 18th Century.

We looked at the development of various ideas – such as the identification of Oxygen and other elements – including the final upheaval of the Earth, Wind, Fire, Water model.

The discussion investigated:

How even in those cases where ideas have now been supersede – the Scientists and Inventors demonstrate GOOD methodology.

How the methodology of OBJECTIVITY is in fact the methodology of DISCOVERY!

How the advancement of Science went hand-in hand with the development of Capitalistic Ideals: The ideals of free thinking and free trade.

How great minds proliferate in free societies. And how creative individuals tend to move towards the freest countries/regions.
