But people generally misunderstand the causality in this analytic claim, people generally assume that it is the loss of an authoritative Christian moral framework which is the primary problem.

People assume that the basic problem is that our culture can no longer state what is right and wrong and underpin statements with divine authority - can no longer say do this and don't do that because God ......

(1/14) Secular humanism and "scientific psychiatry".

The Council for Secular Humanism identifies Secular Humanism as a "way of thinking and living" committed to rejecting authoritarian beliefs and embracing "individual freedom and responsibility ... and cooperation." The paradigmatic practices of psychiatry are civil commitment and insanity defense, that is, depriving innocent persons of liberty and excusing guilty persons of their crimes: the consequences of both are confinement in institutions ostensibly devoted to the treatment of mental diseases. Black's Law Dictionary states: "Every confinement of the person is an 'imprisonment,' whether it be in a common prison, or in private house, or in the stocks, or even by forcibly detaining one in the public streets." Accordingly, I maintain that Secular Humanism is incompatible with the principles and practices of psychiatry.  (+info)

(2/14) What's the problem? A response to "secular humanism and scientific psychiatry".

Notwithstanding the interest and importance of Szasz's position, it neglects the phenomena, the real problems which take people to the clinic seeking treatment, and the conditionality of the notion of individual responsibility.  (+info)

(5/14) Secular trends in neuroblastoma mortality before and after the cessation of national mass screening in Japan.

BACKGROUND: In 2003, the Japanese government halted the national mass screening program for neuroblastoma (NB), which had been running since the mid-1980s. It is not known whether the NB mortality rate subsequently increased or decreased. METHODS: Utilizing vital statistics data from 1980 through 2006, we analyzed the secular trends in NB mortality by using cancer of the adrenal gland as a surrogate. We examined the validity of this substitution by comparing the results with data from death certificates. Using a joinpoint regression model, we examined the trends in age-specific mortality rates by calendar year and cumulative mortality rates by birth year. The cumulative mortality rate was analyzed for age under 1 or 2 years for infants born after the cessation of the mass screening program. RESULTS: The number of deaths from cancer of the adrenal gland was closely correlated with the number of deaths from NB. Significant decreases in the mortality rate were observed from 1980 through 2006 by calendar year for those aged under 1 year, 1 to 4 years, and 5 to 9 years. The cumulative mortality rates by birth year also significantly decreased from the 1980 birth cohort. Although the cumulative mortality rates under the age of 2 appear to have increased after the 2003 birth cohort, the change was not statistically significant. CONCLUSIONS: No significant increase in the NB mortality rate was detected after the cessation of the mass screening program in Japan. However, continuous monitoring is still needed to fully evaluate this health policy decision.  (+info)

(6/14) Attributes of colleges and schools of pharmacy in the United States.

OBJECTIVES: To compare the attributes of US colleges and schools of pharmacy and describe the extent of change to the pharmacy education enterprise associated with the addition of new schools. METHODS: Attributes analyzed included whether the college or school of pharmacy was old or new, public or private, secular or faith-based, and on or not on an academic health center (AHC) campus; had 3- or 4- year programs; and had PhD students enrolled. PharmD student enrollment-to-faculty ratios and junior-to-senior faculty ratios also were examined. RESULTS: Of the new colleges/schools, 76% were private and 79% were not located on a campus with an AHC; 6% had PhD enrollment compared with 80% of old colleges/schools. Faculty ratios were related to several college/school attributes, including the presence or absence of PhD students and whether the college/school was public or private. CONCLUSIONS: Attributes of new colleges and schools of pharmacy have changed the overall profile of all colleges and schools of pharmacy. For example, smaller percentages of all colleges and schools of pharmacy are public and have PhD enrollees.  (+info)

(8/14) Secular versus religious norms against smoking: which is more important as a driver of quitting behaviour among Muslim Malaysian and Buddhist Thai smokers?

BACKGROUND: This paper prospectively examined two kinds of social normative beliefs about smoking, secular versus religious norms. PURPOSE: The purpose of this paper is to determine the relative importance of these beliefs in influencing quitting behaviour among Muslim Malaysian and Buddhist Thai smokers. METHODS: Data come from 2,166 Muslim Malaysian and 2,463 Buddhist Thai adult smokers who participated in the first three waves of the International Tobacco Control Southeast Asia project. Respondents were followed up about 18 months later with replenishment. Respondents were asked at baseline about whether their society disapproved of smoking and whether their religion discouraged smoking, and those recontacted at follow-up were asked about their quitting activity. RESULTS: Majority of both religious groups perceived that their religion discouraged smoking (78% Muslim Malaysians and 86% Buddhist Thais) but considerably more Buddhist Thais than Muslim Malaysians perceived that their society disapproved of smoking (80% versus 25%). Among Muslim Malaysians, religious, but not societal, norms had an independent effect on quit attempts. By contrast, among the Buddhist Thais, while both normative beliefs had an independent positive effect on quit attempts, the effect was greater for societal norms. The two kinds of normative beliefs, however, were unrelated to quit success among those who tried. CONCLUSIONS: The findings suggest that religious norms about smoking may play a greater role than secular norms in driving behaviour change in an environment, like Malaysia where tobacco control has been relatively weak until more recently, but, in the context of a strong tobacco control environment like Thailand, secular norms about smoking become the dominant force.  (+info)

Fastest way to overthrow the US government?

My list:

1. Buy nothing except things needed to survive (food, basic clothing,etc)
2. Radical secularism.  Secularism is the nectar of the liberated mind and body and a capitalist society can't withstand  a populace that is free in mind and body.
3. Feel Free to add to the list.

Fastest way to overthrow the US government?
to first poster....having babies robs people of liberated minds and lives.  My do you think non-capitalist societies advocate small families?
----------, having babies? Why is this in the P & P section?

eta: i was being sarcastic, genius. i thought it was an odd question to put into this section. Anyway, if you're intending to overthrow the government you could use them to breed an army, so it's not totally irrelevant.

AP EURO summer assighnment?

My summer assignment is to write an essay on how the Renaissance was a dramatic change from the middle ages. I was thinking of doing an introduction on how the middle ages began and how powerful church and feudalism became. Here is my introduction... Please is it good? I need opinions. 

- How was The Renaissance a dramatic change from the Middle Ages? 

The Renaissance, which is the translation of “Rebirth” in Italian, was a period of change, progress, and a new outlook on life in Europe from as early as the 14th century to the 17th century. This was a period of time that brought back Roman and Greek ideas as well as the thoughts of Humanism, Secularism, and Individualism. This period of advancement was a big change from the Middle Ages (350 A.D to 1450 A.D) that placed the Church and Feudalism as the center of society. 

The Middle Ages began to develop when the Western Roman Empire began to fall apart due to Barbarians and Germanic tribes attacking the empire from the north. This resulted in this part of the empire becoming a land of kingdoms which helped start a new era in Europe: The Middle Ages. While the Western Roman Empire did not bounce back the Eastern Roman Empire began to flourish in trade, wealth, and the growth of Roman Catholicism. This resulted in this part of the empire being re-named into the Byzantine Empire with its capital Constinople named after the Roman Empire's first Christian Emperor, Constantine the Great. In the West the Germanic tribes took over, great cities became no more, trade was destroyed, and Roman law ceased to exist. In the early Middle Ages the Roman Catholic Church was a civilized force. This resulted in the conversion of many Germanic tribes to Christianity. People crowded together for protection in small towns and villages that became isolated from leftover cities in the countryside. Cities were less common and the land was divided into small "countries" that was divided into large estates. During this time Feudalism became its basic government, the Church had a firm hand on society, famine became common, the Black Plague killed 1/3 of Europe's population, and the Crusades were fought. This time of gloom and depression was just a long winter waiting for a large “enlightening” sun to melt the misery away.

Looks good, but the one thing I would change is that in AP classes you use C.E. for AD, and B.C.E for BC
