Should we teach our children that God is irrelevant and that they will be judged solely on what they do?

That's what Faith and Belief are all about. This is not a Science Forum and there are no measurable results and published papers. Perhaps this is more your cup of tea:
Closer To Truth

Are you trying to steer me away from this forum?

Re: Anselm not required
Not at all. I was trying to focus on theCloser To Truth Link.

I am emphasizing, however, that Scientific Methodology is no substitute for philosophical musing. Just because you cannot or will not allow yourself to speculate...building on what he said or she said....does not mean that we must dismiss philosophy based on its failure to adhere to scientific methodology.


Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. RC Sproul
"A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." Mark Twain "
~"If that's not sufficient for you go soak your head."~Faith
Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.~Proverbs 28:26

You have that backwards. Philosophical musing has no value except in areas where science has nothing to work with - and even then its value is questionable.

Hey, say that to all those exploration and mining companies. Try philosophy to them while doing aeromag or drilling holes or something like that. Word salads. Modern philosophy is like believing in Thor.
