    Society based on Science

    Do any of you, brilliant, independent critical thinkers, have any ideas on how society could be organized using science?

    Define "society organized by science" (or religion.)

    Data, molecules, crystals, light beams etc., can be organized by using science.

    Society is always changing - a product of the thoughts of its members. Impossible to organize because once you think you have succeeded, people die (or leave), new ones are born (or migrate in), and your "organized" society is now different, and must be re-organized.

    You should perhaps provide your own spin first Prof. It would be a treat learning how a brilliant and independent thinker approaches the poll query.


    The presidency doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are.

    You don't need just ideas. There is a concrete example. Singapore.

    Replace society with science and you've got the right idea...

    nah let's just organize it around how we think people should act and be treated

    science can help perhaps with evaluating the results of some actions

    probably want to avoid religious threats and bribes that cannot be verified as sources of policy

    That will be deliberated in the civil rights discussion.

    I believe science can provide the demarcation of knowledge and subsequently, the demarcation of law; which is useful for understanding the separation of government entities.

    Atheism is a political doctrine
    The founders only had one simple formula for organizing government, and a relatively limited supply of paper, ink, endurance; and basically, parameters of simple designs that would engage the few literate citizens of 1787. We need to have a constitutional convention that gathers the diversity of people and technology that the founders could not gather.
