What if there isn’t?

What if there isn’t?

Helping doubters come to terms with the absurdity of existence.

The Price of Rejecting Reality is High

Question from Richard:

I have become a big fan of yours through watching and listening to your podcasts. I am having a struggle with one simple statement I hear from a family member who is struggling on the edge of leaving Christianity. His simple statement is, "There must be something or someone out there.". I don't want to dismiss him with some snide remark. What is a good way of handling this?

Meditation as a Humanist Practice

Meditation as a Humanist Practice

Questions and answers about why Humanists meditate – from a Humanist perspective. As more and more Humanists take up meditation – I thought it would be helpful to discuss why and how I consider meditation to be a basic life skill.

What is Humansit Meditation

This post comes in the form of a Q&A from a reporter. I thought I would share my answers here.

I am 48 and practice meditation. I am also a Humanist – so I practice a non-woo form of meditation. I consider it an important part of my practice as a Humanist.

What is it like raising a gifted kid?

What is it like raising a gifted kid?

Gifted kids think differently and see the world differently and that difference is not measured on standardized tests!!

I have a highly gifted kid. He’s fun. I enjoy him. But school. It’s a bit of a problem. And that’s because while he scores in the 95% for things like math aptitude, he routinely scores in the 30% to 50% range on tests.  And it’s not because he gets the answers wrong. It’s because how he understands the problem is manifestly different from how normal people and the test designers understand the questions being asked so his correct answers are often marked wrong.

For instance – check out this test prep question.

array problem that stumps a gifted kid

It is a 3x4 array of blocks. You are asked to choose the division equation shown by the 3x4 array. The correct answer is obviously 12/3=4

Black Privilege/White Privilege?

Black Privilege/White Privilege?

Yes – we really do have a race problem. The numbers don’t lie.

The Hanna Channel – which is a right wing vlog – shared this graphic. 

Black privilege?

It makes the case that there is no such thing as white privilege, but that it’s actually blacks in America who are privileged because ... way more whites are killed by blacks than blacks killed by whites and because there are way more whites are killed by cops than blacks killed by cops.

There’s just one problem. And that problem is that these are raw numbers. And as raw numbers, they are meaningless because ... these raw numbers assume equal numbers of whites and blacks in America. But the number of whites and blacks isn’t equal.
