Dorina Grossu created a new topic ' Pascal the Ignored Philosopher by Herb Spencer' in the forum. 1 week ago

Ironically, mathematics (especially Geometry) was originally thought to be the best exemplar of ideal
philosophy, especially Plato’s unchanging (timeless) ‘Forms’. Pascal annoyed both the philosophers and
many mathematicians by turning his powerful intellect on mathematics itself with his preface to his textbook
on geometry that while acknowledging that the axiomatic method used in Euclid’s geometry might be as
perfect as possible but there was no way to confirm that the axioms themselves were true. He claimed that
the definitions that rely on everyone’s intuition (like the perfect circle) again had no natural examples so
could only be used ‘by agreement’ (i.e. abstract Cartesian formalisms), so that those people who wished for
certainty in mathematics will have to turn to God for their eradication of uncertainty.

PASCAL’s WAGER
Since Pascal realized he could not construct a logical proof of God’s existence, he turned to his recent study
of probability; the result is known as Pascal’s Wager (or bet). A prudent gambler, seeing the odds, should
place their bet on the religious possibility because of the size of the Win. If God does exist then living an
unbeliever’s life could be eternally damnable but if God does not exist, then it really does not matter what
one does. Not to bet on God’s existence is itself a bet on God’s non-existence but it stops one from really
benefitting if there is a God. Pascal was well aware that betting on the option with the best expected reward
does not make one a religious person. Since God should be aware of one’s private motivations then making
such a bet would be unconvincing, like the traditional argument for faith, not good deeds. Even the religious
option is confused when one is faced picking one: Judaism, Islam, Hinduism or one of thousand Christian
sects.

"
About 650 million children and women alive today were married before age 18, roughly 17% of the global female population, according to
UNICEF. In a yearlong project, Voice of America set out to meet child
brides from Albania to Pakistan to Tanzania, putting faces and voices to
a practice that the United Nations is trying to eliminate by 2030.Ending child marriage is pivotal to improving global health, eliminating poverty and expanding human rights, UNICEF says. Married teen girls are often physically abused, and their lives of
chores and childbearing perpetuate centuries-old cycles of gender
inequality in their communities.The leading causes of death for girls ages 15 to 19 are complications from pregnancy and giving
birth, according to the World Health Organization. Babies born to girls
younger than 18 also have higher risks of death and stunting."

Feelings rule Relationships

In most species (and humans) intense emotional responses are related to the RH and inhibited by the LH.
The LH is not impressed with empathy (no good dictionary definition); its concern is with maximizing gain for
itself: it's driving value is utility. Altruism is a necessary consequence of RH empathy as we feel the feelings of
others and engage in their existence. The cynical LH believes that we only exhibit this deep level of real co-
operation on the expectation of getting a reciprocal reward; this may be a factor in many LH-based choices.

The author points out that it is not the calculated outcome that drives empathy - it is the process and relationship
that is important; this has been shown in actual brain-scans where RH pleasure centers ‘light-up’ when a person
co-operates with another human but not when a similar deal is made with a computerized ‘partner’."
