The Association for the Study of Religion, Economics, and Culture exists to promote interdisciplinary scholarship on religion through conferences, workshops, newsletters, websites, working papers, teaching, and research. ASREC supports all manner of social-scientific methods, but seeks especially to stimulate work based on economic perspectives and the rational choice paradigm. The economic study of religion comprises a variety of subfields, which collectively embrace all aspects of the social-scientific study of religion.

Charles Darwin and other early evolutionists were fascinated by religious phenomena and how they might be explained from an evolutionary perspective. Nevertheless, evolutionary theory became restricted to the biological sciences and excluded from the study of many human-related subjects for most of the 20th century. Only now is the theory being used to explain all aspects of humanity in addition to the rest of life. ERS

Sandwalk My department is in a Faculty of Medicine and the main source of research funding for biomedical sciences in Canada is the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). The current Conservative Government has been consistently underfunding CIHR over the past six years so that the number of grants available for basic research (e.g. biochemistry and molecular biology) has been falling. This is the time of the year when my colleagues hear the results of the latest grant competitions. It's been a sad couple of days because four labs failed to get funding for their main research projects. Eight other labs failed to get additional funding for ongoing projects that were not part of their main grant. What does this mean?

The Partially Examined Life | A Philosophy Podcast and Philosophy Blog via @bellebethcooper at blog.bufferapp.com [From Lou Canelli] Late into the recent episode about Thomas Kuhn, the conversation settled into the apparent threat of relativism looming in Kuhn’s ideas. This led to a tone of “been there, done that,” especially in highlighting the psychological reality of the confirmation bias. This isn’t a term used directly during the episode, but it captures precisely what was discussed: the notion that we see what we expect to see.

by Steve NeumannIt’s cliche to claim that around the clock news outlets and social media such as blogs, Facebook and Twitter have revolutionized our culture and raised our global consciousness. These technologies have provided us with many benefits: they brought the gruesome reality of war and other political injustices into our living rooms in real time, which has inspired more and more people to oppose unnecessary or immoral wars and interventions; they have enabled greater communication and understanding between cultures; and they have even contributed to economic growth by allowing both corporations and individuals to reach ever wider audiences with their products and services.This trend is not without its side effects, of course - chief among them the fact that anyone can say anything at the press of a button pretty much with impunity.

Evolving Thoughts Welcome to my blog and website. This is where whatever passes through my forebrain in sufficient coherence gets put, as an aide memoir. It is unedited, unchecked and unneeded. I reserve the right to revise my posts to correct errors, but I’ll mark them as they happen, if I think of it.
Secular News Daily
Welcome! The Secular Web is owned and operated by Internet Infidels Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization dedicated to promoting and defending a naturalistic worldview on the Internet. As defined by Paul Draper, naturalism is "the hypothesis that the natural world is a closed system, which means that nothing that is not a part of the natural world affects it." Thus, "naturalism implies that there are no supernatural entities"—including God. Secular Web
