Cruel Logic

This is from writer-director Brian Godawa:

The point is clear. Materialists can talk the talk, but when the rubber meets the road, is their approach to ethics livable?

  1. Haven’t seen anything like this before. Very straight and to the point. Will probably be hammered as cruel and heartless by those who hold to a more secular humanist logic, but that can only be determined by societal agreement on right and wrong and/or evolutionary development of right and wrong, again by agreement. In other words, majority rules.

    I think of Machen’s words when he spoke about the modern ideal. It sounded so much like what Star Trek envisions for the future of humanity that I could not help (DNA?) linking the two.

    “I suppose it is a world in which the human machine has arrived at the highest stage of efficiency. Disease, I suppose, may be abolished; and as for death, although we shall have not abolished it, we shall at least have abolished its terrors. Vague childish longings, prescientific speculations as to a hereafter, will all be gone; and we shall have learned, as reasonable and scientific men, to stand without a pang at the grave of those whom in a less scientific age we should have been childish enough to love” (The Gospel in the Modern World, p 17).
