Java Iraq, Money, Religion, Ethics… Gay Roedy’s Health

Selling Technology as Religion

When the conquistadors came to South America, they were easily able to sell Christianity. The native people abandoned their gods because the conquistadors had guns, iron and giant ships. Clearly the Spanish god was more powerful because of the gifts he bestowed on his followers. What if some race more intelligent humans came to visit earth. Would the Christians similarly abandon their god in favour of the gods of the visitors? Not likely because there have already been such visitors, the atheists and scientists who offered great technological bounty and the Christians spat on them and clung to their bronze age beliefs.

Advantage of Consciousness

Consciousness has baffled man since the beginning. We would not have it, if it did not have some evolutionary advantage. Discovering that advantage may be the key to cracking the mystery.
