Length: 1s

In this show, the seemingly indefatigable Susan Blackmore and hosts David Quinn and Dan Rowden try to come to grips with issues as diverse yet integrated as mystical experiences, memes, free will, consciousness and how truth can become integrated into the nature of what we are as humans.

Fundamentalism and Fear

1969-12-31 :: danrowden@geniusrealms.com
Length: 1s

In this installment the issue at hand is fundamentalism, its nature, its causes, its apparent increasing global reality, its anti-science and anti-reason mindset and the cultural nuances therein, and also the question of whether fundamentalism is actually far more wide-spread in human society than we might imagine and if it's really only just simmering under the surface waiting for the right conditions to emerge. The discussion expands into the overall role and nature - for better or for worse - of religion in human culture. Plus other themes relating to how best to improve the lot of humanity and how to avoid potential disaster.…

The World of Woman

1969-12-31 :: danrowden@geniusrealms.com
Length: 1s

In what will prove to be the Reasoning Show's most controversial production to date, host Dan Rowden and guests Rich Zubaty and Sue Hindmarsh walk the oily tightrope of the issue of Feminism and attempt to stride the gaping chasm of Woman without losing their footing and falling in headlong. In this episode we look at the politics, psychology and spirituality of the feminist movement and the female nature per se. Has feminism damaged or improved society and women's place in it? Have men be falsely demonised so as to facilitate feminist demands? Are women conscious of the dynamics involved? You be the judge.…

Facing the Future

1969-12-31 :: danrowden@geniusrealms.com
Length: 1s

In this edition of The Reasoning Show we're going to attempt to come to grips with something thing that most people think about from time to time, if only in limited ways and if only when it slaps them in the face: namely, the FUTURE. In the coming years and next few decades, the world as we know it will change significantly. Life spans will increase substantially. Our senses and cognitive faculties will be enhanced. We'll have greater control over most aspects of our minds. The limits of the human body will be transcended as technologies such as artificial intelligence, nanotechnology and genetic engineering converge and accelerate. With them, we will redesign ourselves and force a new paradigm of thinking with regards to who and what we are as persons and as a species. This future presents us multifarious and profound issues to grapple with and questions to be addressed, the most salient of which may well prove to be: "are we ready for or capable of dealing with this future?"! …
