It’s all about change - either the status quo is desired, or some new state is desired. Sometimes it just takes new perspectives to gain clarity.
Our mission is to encourage intellectual honesty in contemporary dialogue by revealing the prevalence of human tendencies toward emotion-driven thinking, the hidden costs of acting upon the flawed assumptions that result, and by illustrating that science, reason and evidence-based action are the best path to optimizing the “greater good” for all.
To support our mission, we must:
ü Focus on areas of agreement with regard to bettering humanity, rather than the dogmatic literalism that divides us.
ü Create awareness of our responsibility as free citizens to think critically and reason logically in an environment that tends to encourage the opposite – emotion-driven thinking.
ü Create awareness about the fallability of human reasoning, and the prevalence of untrue assumptions in conventional wisdom.
ü Point out the pitfalls of emotion-driven thinking, and the damage it causes us as individuals, and as a society.
ü Provide some perspective on life’s real joys and dangers.
ü Encourage and promote the use of data and the scientific method to pursue truth as the ultimate goal.
ü Help us recognize that none of us has perfect knowledge, and that imperfect knowledge limits us.
ü Provide simple techniques to change the way we think when addressing future problems, both in society and in our own lives.
ü Remind us of the real price paid for our freedom, so easily taken for granted, and the fact that with our freedoms comes a responsibility to contribute and continue the deliberations it affords us.
ü Open our minds and hearts – not in mindless tolerance, but in the pursuit of the ideal of truth, elusive as it will always be.
