This is the 5th volume of blogs, dedicated to the Search for Secular Ethics, as inspired by Dalai Lama. My search does not aspire to infallibility. I do hope, however, to stir readers' minds to join me in the search for ethics that would free us from the fundamentalistic dogmas of either science or religion. Feel free to comment on any of my 93 blogs.

El siglo XIX fue una de las épocas en la que más cambios sociales y tecnológicos ocurrieron, y nuevas formas de pensamiento surgieron debido a estos avances vertiginosos. Uno de los pilares del pensamiento actual nace de una profunda reflexión acerca de qué hacer cuando el ciudadano no está de acuerdo con algunas o todas las acciones del gobierno: para Thoreau es claro, la desobediencia civil.

Price: $1.99 USD. Words: 24,650. Language: Romanian. Published: February 5, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » Science and Nature » Genetics, Nonfiction » Philosophy » Ethics & moral philosophy
Așa cum este definită eugenia, este foarte dificil de făcut o diferențiere clară între știință (medicină, ingineria genetică) și eugenie. Și de stabilit o linie peste care ingineria genetică nu ar trebui să treacă, conform unor norme morale, juridice și religioase.
Diary of Atonement: The case for good and evil
Price: $3.99 USD. Words: 22,600. Language: English. Published: January 25, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Ethics & moral philosophy
This is a work on identity that challenges the mind to think for itself. To say of an identity that “it is itself” says not that an identity is a oneness (so tradition) but that it is two-faced–a paradox. I invite you to find the book provocative, inviting your criticism, as a mind-challenging exercise in thinking for yourself. And why not?

The world cries out for an imaginative but realistic Biblical guide to the life foreshadowed in Christ's model prayer.

Price: $5.99 USD. Words: 28,440. Language: English. Published: October 29, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Ethics & moral philosophy
The greed creed is driving humanity towards a very dangerous future. We need to stop and take a long hard look at what is happening and what we are being driven towards. Two and a half thousand years ago the great philosophers showed us a way to live based on love, respect and empathy. Maybe it’s time for humans to evolve and accept those principles as our best option for survival.
