The Eco-Centric

This is the transcript for the clip I posted on Youtube. To day I want to talk about the Eco-Centric. The Eco-Centric is a statue I created. With it I try to visualize the state of our culture. And it ain’t a nice picture. Humanity has come a long way since our beginnings. Not so long ago, only some thousand years, we were seeking shelter in caves to protect us from nature.* We were vulnerable, but we survived. And where are we now? Now nature has to be protected from us human...

Religion and Creation

EFF the book! And any other book in which people believe. These books, the Bible, the New Testament and the Quran, the scriptures of eternal knowledge, wisdom and justice and whatever god has whispered to the authors of these various books some thousand years ago. The books were at those times an important stepping stone to the development of civilisation. What was good and necessary then does not give answers to the moral questions of today. The technological advancements at the time the...

The Suffering of Nature

Our Home We once had a perfect home and we have succeeded in messing it up! I am talking about planet Earth, about Mother Nature. The world of today is not the world of two hundred years ago, not even one hundred years ago. It is not true, that human beings did not destroy nature before the Industrial Revolution (1). They did, but only in such a scale, that nature could still retain a certain equilibrium. That changed with the Industrial Revolution. Around the same time world population grew to...

Obama and the Near East

Obama and the Near East

As an Israeli I am very disappointed in US-president Obama. No, not for the usual reasons of Obama bashing. For his adversaries in Israel and the USA Obama’s middle name Hussein seems to imply he is a Muslim. A secret one! That in itself is already enough reason to loath him. The other reason seems to be, that he is of color and the White House, as the name implies, belongs to a white man. But this is all speculations. Although there is a kernel of truth in it, I am sure. Still it is...

Sanders vs. Clinton

Sanders vs. Clinton

On 19th of June Salon.com (1) published an article by Bill Curry (2). Mr. Curry is, or was, a politician, an adviser to president Clinton the First. Now Mr. Curry writes for Salon. Mr. Curry accomplished to endorse Bernie Sanders without insulting Hillary Clinton. Good job, Mr. Curry. The headline alone tells the whole story. The trap is set for Clinton because the future belongs to Sanders. Or rather to the ideas he is running on and Ms. Clinton still believes in the old ways, which led us...

The Wonder of Life

Pope Fancis First I have to apologise to Pope Francis, in my recent article about him I was sarcastic, if not downright cynical. The questions are still unanswered, but the encyclical Laudato Si’ is pretty progressive (1). Although, it is still not radical enough for me I am pretty happy that Pope Francis did a very decent job in advancing our fight against Climate Change. I hope that the, as yet unanswered, questions will be approached in the next steps. That churches, monasteries and...
