I know this blogging thing will start slowly, but it still feels a little like that small man in white in the picture - riding a zipline high over a freezing river while thousands of onlookers wait to see if he succeeds or fails. Well hopefully this won't disappoint.
I've posted an entire book's worth of philosophy on this website, but I want to take the time now to go over each section of it. If I'm really going to create an Evolutionary Philosophy, I want it to be as peer reviewed by the public as I can make it - that's the way evolution works isn't it? Cooperation, competition, mutation, selection, adaptation, survival of the fittest... - but I'm getting ahead of myself.
The first section I want to post and talk about is Purpose - the purpose of Evolutionary Philosophy. It's a short section laying out some of the challenges we face, the choices we have, and the change that I would like to see made. It's the rallying cry for why I've been thinking about these issues for as long as I can remember. Have a look and let me know if this speaks to you, too. Do you think we need another belief system? Does humanity need to learn how to unite and work together? Can that unification come from the shared fact that we are all life and we are all products of evolution? Post your comments below and tell me what you think.
