"I agree with this, to quote: ". It is also strange how those who identify in this way are able to confidently describe and prescribe this God that they don't believe in and then extrapolate that this God that they have outlined is…"

Louise Macdonald commented on natbas's blog post Dawkins' Evolutionary Atheism Reveals the Unconscious Influence of Intellectual Imperialism
"As a Christian who believes in the theory of evolution and is fascinated by Darwin and his historical context I find the whole atheistic assumptions about religious belief systems very strange. Its seems so strange to me that you would define your…"

natbas commented on natbas's blog post Dawkins' Evolutionary Atheism Reveals the Unconscious Influence of Intellectual Imperialism
"Of course. I am not claiming any religious superiority, either theologically or otherwise. It is just that people here find it easy to accept evolution- in fact, if you come here, you'll find that religious people are proud that someone a long…"

Laura Cathey commented on natbas's blog post Dawkins' Evolutionary Atheism Reveals the Unconscious Influence of Intellectual Imperialism
"You mention a parallel: through rebirth, a person can change over time and so it is only natural that the world would change over time in a similar manner. Though I am not a scholar or theologian, I think that not all religions contain within them…"

Dawkins' Evolutionary Atheism Reveals the Unconscious Influence of Intellectual Imperialism

There's an interesting post at Neuroanthropology:- Richard Dawkins on ‘Elders’.It is about Richard Dawkins, and how his brand of atheism is distasteful even as his version of evolution is not hundred percent accurate. The author of the post is sympathetic to Dawkins, I think he admires him- what he objects to is Dawkins' manners, and his incomplete version of evolutionary theory. To quote, "I feel…See More

natbas replied to Andrew D. Whitmont's discussion Uniting images, symbols and metaphors of the Numinous for the Nuclear Electronic Age in the group One Earth One Sky One Humankind
"I agree that the twin towers could be a potent metaphor of our violent age- not only for New Yorkers whose life changed for ever with the twin strikes, but for all of us. But why rest with it? A collage with images of the Holocaust, Hiroshima,…"

"I'd suggest this image of LHC (Large Hadron Collider): It might look odd that I suggest a symbol of technology whereas the discussion starts off with the question: "...what images, symbols and metaphors call us, to unite us in our…"

Thank you so much for your recommendations and for your Christmas wishes. I shall look out for Thiru Thayumanavar's work especially and also that of Thiruvachagam. I have seen reference to both, but not read any of their work. I have also read some of Krishnamurti's and Sri Ramana Maharishi's work and anecdotes about them. What other philosophers do you read? With best wishes, Rosemary

Thank you, Baskar, for your help a few days ago. I know something of Hinduism, having lived on the subcontinent for 3 years (not only in India itself). I have not studied Hinduism at all systematically, just as I talk to people, some reading of scriptures and textbooks. 'By chance', I bought an English-language copy of 'Garland of Grace' by Thiru Ramalinga Swamigal, which I found very moving. I would certainly like to visit Chidambaram if I ever return to India. With best wishes, Rosemary
