Can we say of Religion what the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy said of Economics: It is not one homogeneous enterprise? If so, then what is religion as a plural phenomenon? Should we... More > understand religious traditions as carriers of revealed truth in the current age of empirical science? Or should we appreciate the power of the human imagination to satisfy our curiosity? Can human ingenuity
reconcile the psychological and historical biases of religious traditions? Can we see them as both individual and communal realities?
I propose to understand religious traditions under the rubric of a metaphor. They are mosaics, subtle designs of human experiences—designs that have emerged from the human struggle of coping with the constant impulse to make sense of life. Human ingenuity is capable of creating counter-cultural communities that persist as chains of memory. Their historical function is celebrating relationships that define our destiny and who we are.< Less

My granddaddy used to say, “There ain't no such thing as a Nigga. Niggas are a figment of the imagination; a mental construct. An idea created to keep men down. A way of thinking that only... More > existed in a man's mind.” My granddaddy also picked his lottery numbers from a book of dreams that he kept under his bed. If he had a dream and saw a white rabbit hopping across a freshly cut lawn on Labor Day it meant you played numbers 572. If the dream was him riding on a bus uptown and a guy wearing a purple suit with a red feather in his hat, gets on the bus with exact change, and ask if the bus is heading downtown, you played 769. So we didn't take what granddaddy said too seriously. Besides I live in the hood, and in the hood “Niggas” were everywhere.< Less
