Spontaneous Philosophical Tea Party™
I’m attempting a resurrection of this very cool old TS meme. It’s name comes from the book Sophie’s World, by Jostein Gaarder. A book I’d highly recommend, if you haven’t already read it.
The topic for today’s Spontaneous Philosophical Tea Party™, is worship.
It’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, and my (multi-part) question is this:
Why worship? Are we as humans hardwired to worship something? Even us skeptics, is our admiration of Carl Sagan and the scientific method considered worship? Is it moral to worship? And if you were god, would you want your creations to worship you, or would much rather they were out doing useful things with their Sunday mornings?
So, Teen Skepchick readers, what do you think? Talk to me! 😀
