Bill D BS: How can we restore a reason renaissance (322* d) RE: BS: How can we restore a reason renaissance 21 Dec 20

When you look at the history of humans... the LONG history of several million years... it is obvious why our remote ancestors , as they developed the ability TO reason, wanted to know why 'things happened as they did'.
Storms, fire, death, seasons, stars...etc... all were bewildering, and needed answers. Enquiring minds came up with answers, and who would be surprised that the most interesting answers got the most adherents?

   Fast forward a couple of million years and many many areas... are now ingrained. Unfortunately, they are not always the same answers.... and not all humans have, or want, the answers that seem less interesting, especially when following all the varying trains of thought is simply too hard!

A reason renaissance? First there needs to be some standard of what counts AS reason... and that must overcome those millions of years of just believing what 'feels' good.

You think **Sisyphus** had a problem!
