One of the benefits of being a senior citizen is to have an appreciation, a sense of astonishment.  A recognition of aur enormous privilege of instant, retrievable, information, communication, reading and writing that we now enjoy.  We have immediacy and availability;  having all of the information and arts, in our pockets wherever we may go. Compare what one had to do 50 years ago, 500 years ago and 5000 years ago. (1)

Allow me to color today’s views through the lens of myself as a  youth,  I think people may not only lack this appreciation, but do not really want to hear about what is was like before now.  I know I did not. My father’s stories of what life was like, in his youth, always made my eyes roll. I even mocked his “five miles walking on a dirt road to school stories – up hill both ways”.  But,  I…

    As long as you don’t have any tag cloud on your blog, KK, I recommend you to reblog older blog post goodies regularly.

    Remember, your RWT community (RWT = Readers and Writers Tribe) is constantly growing.

    Just a suggestion from me. Why not introduce polls on your bloig now and than. For example: What book genres do you prefer? What kind of music do you prefer? In the poll you give some examples of genres/categories.

    I think it would be fun to “map” the members of this “tribe”.

    Of course no one will be excluded or punished for liking, for instance, heavy metal music instead of operas. In this tribe (RWT) we are not like the God of the Old Testament. 🙂

      I am not certain of the mechanics of that suggestion. Could you walk me through it?

    I don’t know either. Maybe Janice is the one to ask.

    I’ve seen, on other blogs, that polls are “always” popular. And it can’t be hard finding interesting poll questions.

      I will study that after I have finished the “Religeons” assignment you requested after my “incomplete” report on the individual, family, tribe!

    What can I say about “religion” that you don’t know better than I?

    KK, your blog is intended for ALL the tribe members. Not only me.

    Evolution has many spin off effects. Because you’re so interested in evolution I think you should study and, above all, blog more about religion’s evolutionary roots and consequences. What’s good and/or bad by having a religious brain, “donated” to us by evolution? Is religion a bridge builder in itself? Or is religion a bridge destroyer? Past and present. Or in the future?

    My take on this is that religion and religious faith make it more difficult to build bridges. That special property of religion can be both advantageous and disastrous.

    Why not start by googling names like Robert Wright and Pascal Boyer? (You’ve already told me you’ve read Robert Wright’s book The Evolution of God.)

    Probably religion was once very useful for the survival of humankind. But is religion needed also today in order to promote our survival? Or is religion nowadays mostly a hindrance of peaceful coexistence?

    I’m pretty sure there are also many fiction books dealing with that kind of questions in one way or another.
