I thought this was pretty cool for mainstream media to actually include a word like spirituality in a headline. I posted this on facebook and got quite a negative reaction from a Flat Earth proponent, his reaction surprised me, declaring that the guy was teaching false science because TRUE SCIENCE (his caps) validates the Flat Earth position.

I was just happy that this man, Marcelo Gleiser, was recognized for his work.

The Templeton foundation is really doing something positive for humanity.
Trying to ask and answer the big question.
Urantia book readers should follow the studies they fund.

Institutional changes in religion via competition. What kinds of innovative religious organizations are helping to revitalize faith traditions and institutions? We seek to focus on innovative religious institutions that update religious models while keeping the core of their traditions. When might competition contribute to increasing the constructive social contributions of religions? Individual changes in beliefs, behaviors, and belonging. The term “religion” pulls together a complex mix of practices, beliefs, identities, and institutions. How can religious identity be fractionated into its components? Why and how do people switch religious identities?


What is the purpose of such research? Why would an organisation seek to know the fractionary components of what might be considered religious experience? [ https://www.templeton.org/partners ] What are the proven contributions of the Templeton Org? Why do you trust that organisation?

I think the more important questions are, if these answers were answered to the satisfaction of the truth, would such information be used to further dismantle the various world traditions, used to fashion some new type of social contract, you know would the pace of religious destabilisation increase after having created such statistical models. But if you ask me, Nanaak was certainly an innovator in that he fed those whom he brought to his temple of worship. $325 million that could have gone to actually building an empire. I have seen the low religious turnout, I have visited every church and I have smelled out the reasons for the collapse of parishes. There is not the attendance during the worship hour, but when there is an event, free public dinner, this is the meeting ground where the faithful public will attend. It is only to do the things that Jesus asked of the Apostles, in order to maintain the Church, and the very first is "feed my sheep". Therefore, the waning of the horticultural traditions during the late 20th century in America, preamble the dismemberment of religious communities in the 21st century. I think you could build a new religious tradition wide enough to adopt the former ceremonies and family traditions, but first you would have to be prepared to feed a community like that.

Agreed. Sir John Templeton was a great 20th century mind and leader who taught economic and personal financial behaviors which were based on spiritual faith and the golden rule with social consciousness at its core. His foundation has carried his work and ideals forward to the great benefit of the world.

Those who besmirch him or his work merely demonstrate ignorance and prejudice. Just sayin'....

Thanks for the links. Proof that the evolutionary profit based economy eventually and inevitably leads to the service based economy as described in the UB as we traverse the Mortal Epochs.

Ah but in the 21st Century the gains of the Templeton Foundation are not necessarily offered to the public forum :arrow: i.e. "Transparency". Rather, the information is =; shared with the partners =; , or funders, one of whom owns the amazon corporation and trying to underwrite the sourcecode of psychospiritual religious self-identification. :P This information might be used in the new treatises of social policy in the fourth industrial estate. This is like in the ancient Roman Society, where Jurists (Senators) would have Quorum, their own Regulative Law which they enforced upon themselves and the entire society. :razz: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrician_(ancient_Rome), https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_Senate But plebians were given no knowledge of such hierarchial nature to government. :| The Social Policy would be explained, as in the rules of a game, but the technical and intrinsic Rules as to how society was actually being regulated, remained a mystery. :mrgreen: The summation of data associated with the human individual (in the source code): :-& his actions, thoughts, and modus operandus. Such information gained by Templeton Foundation definetly used by the partners to probe more deeply into the human conundrum. I am just wondering, if the people who volunteer data to the Templeton Org know the custodial dynamic of the datapool, the analysis thereof, and who are the parties making advice/recommendations. Why do you think experts hired by Jeff Bezos should have this data in order to make decisions regarding social policy?

So you didn't find the public website and free reports and public publications and updates and free subscription "public" enough? Hahhahaha…. You conspiracy theorists slay me...how sadly humorous.

To those who are interested, here's a link to a story at the website which is very relevant to the UB related to the time-unit of personal perspective...the long forward view and its effects on the mind and personal/social outcomes - "prospection".

Fascinating!

https://www.templeton.org/discoveries/future-mindedness

And the longer white paper link:

https://www.templeton.org/wp-content/up ... _FINAL.pdf

Those who enjoy biographies really should check out Sir John's story!!

"His financial feats were matched by early signs of John Templeton’s larger vision in life – a profound respect for learning, a belief in the centrality of spiritual life, and a higher purpose beyond profit for profit’s sake."
