The Cognitive Science Society brings together researchers from around the world who hold a common goal: understanding the nature of the human mind. And in my experience, you know, being a Muslim I can understand why many Muslims around the world and especially in the UK, you know, Muslims of different faith or different Muslims of different culture, you know, whether you`re Indian, Pakistani, Bengali or others because nobody wants to acknowledge that you have a psychological or psychological distress or mental health problem or issue.A society is a group of people involved in persistent social interaction , or a large social grouping sharing the same geographical or social territory, typically subject to the same political authority and dominant cultural expectations. The further sceptical gaze of anthropologists has focused on western scientific investigations of non-western treatments having a medico-religious basis, where one outcome may be to determine and extract a possibly effective biochemical agent, to eliminate the ‘magical, mysterious, religious` trappings, to test ‘scientifically` the bits that can be tested, and to get the results patented and legally approved for mass marketing.
I too need to come out and declare my spirituality openly regardless of what other people think or how they may perceive me. We all have free choice and consequently choose what feels right for us and resonates with us. However I do believe that spiritual people usually have to find the source, our God within, by searching for the truth themselves.While it may be an interesting exercise in cultural exchange to attempt tracing the origins of religion, it does not seem a very worthwhile use of one`s time when it seems fairly clear that the religious impulse is simply a part of the human condition and different cultures in different parts of the world could have come to the same conclusions about the meaning of life independently.
In both ‘western` and ‘eastern` beliefs, the element of ascribed personal responsibility did not necessarily preclude the idea that society as a whole was rotten, e.g. the ruler misbehaved, the people failed in religious duties, so ‘monstrous` babies were born to de-monstr-ate divine displeasure, or perhaps as rebounding ill-effects within the interconnected Whole.RWE activists call for violence against hated groups, they call for armed resistance to the state (e.g. the Bundy`s), and they actively work to inculcate hatred against specific groups (Muslims, Jews, African Americans, gays and lesbians,..). These groups are anti-constitutional and contemptuous of the common core of civility upon which a democratic society depends.
This study presents, in light of Stein`s anthropological philosophy(1-2), a way to understand how health professionals (dentists, physicians, resident physicians, nurses, nursing auxiliaries and psychologists) perceive the religiosity and spirituality of their patients under cancer treatment and how these professionals experience their own spirituality.I am definitely non-religious, though I have looked at many forms of religion to see if any of them ring true me. I came to the conclusion that all religions started right (a group of people trying to figure out their place in the universe) but they all end up wrong when they try to lock God” into a human defined set of rules, regulations, policies, and styles of worship.
Lord, I do not understand any of those discussions that are carried on without end regarding Thee: I would serve Thee according to Thy will; but each man whom I consult would have me serve Thee according to his.” He insists that religion is intended for man`s happiness; and that, in order to love it and fulfil its behests, it is not necessary to hate and persecute those who are opposed to our beliefs - not necessary even to attempt to convert them.Other religions have risen and decayed; Christ`s comes down the ages in the strength of youth, through the seas of popular commotion, like the Spirit of God on the face of the waters, through the storms of philosophy, like an apocalyptic angel, and through all the wilderness of human thought and action, like the pillar of fire before the camp of the Israelites.
Increasing numbers of studies have been undertaken (listed in the standard academic databases of medicine, social science and religion) to discover whether there is evidence that religious or spiritual factors may have a measurable influence on illness, disability and rehabilitation, whether by increasing or diminishing patients` participation and compliance, affecting the speed of decline, improvement or recovery, improving the personally reported quality of life or of community responses.Writings of the Daoist philosopher Chuang-tsu (now usually: Zhuangzi), rather than focusing on bodily impairments, displayed an active interest in disabled people and what they actually did with their lives, giving examples of some whose personality or spirituality so attracted ordinary people that their impairments were hardly noticed (Graham 1981, 46-47, 64, 73-81).
Nearly every organized religion has writings or books they consider sacred and/or the one and only true book of writings that shows the one and only true path to goodness and light interpreted by a man who claims or claimed during his lifetime to have a unique connection to the one true God or one true Trinity or the only true several Gods or at least the only one true path to enlightenment.There are only two problems I have with any organized religion: 1) when a religion calls for its members to do harm to other people, and 2) when any religion espouses they are the one and only right way to be spiritual and religious, because that cannot be so-it seems obvious that five different religions who claim they are the only right spiritual way cannot all be, and that obviously they are each one of five different ways to be spiritual.
