You actually believe medical research is an example of institutional bigotry??
. No. I believe in evolutionary biology. If I didn’t there would be no explanation for birth defects, genetically transferred medical problems, microbial resistance to antibiotics, selective breeding, hybrid seed corn, etc. . .
I believe random mutations in DNA can introduce new information (especially things like birth defects) but is totally incapable of providing the information for paradigm change like flight in birds or asexual to sexual reproduction.
The other reason I believe recognizing intelligence is important is when naive realism and subjective idealism is used to determine ontology. This is extremely important in the medical field when determining the legitimacy of physician assisted suicide, aborting innocent babies because their father was a rapist or the baby is an inconvenience, destroying human beings for scientific research etc. . . But, most importantly is when those procedures are forced on doctors or patients who do use naive realism and subjective idealism to determine how and why things are the way they are.
The bigotry comes in when you determine naturalism should be the sole philosophy used in interpreting scientific data and the only one presented in public schools, colleges medical schools, etc. . .
I believe naive realism and subjective idealism should be used in science and taught in school alongside naturalism in all subjects and at all levels. I want to present all views which is the view of a progressive fre thinker. You, on the other hand, want to limit it thought and teaching to naturalism which by definition is bigotry.
I understand where you come from and where you are going, Just understand I ain’t buyin anything you write.
Well you can say you understand but, you can’t explain the origin of life, matter, gravity, sexual reproduction, flight. Etc. . .
Since naturalism alone can’t explain those things and naive realism using subjective idealism possibly could contribute to explaining them, the floor should be open to all reasonable philosophical discussion at all times.
