What is the state of today's philosophical war between reason and mysticism? The purpose of The Main Event is to prepare to answer that theme question by gathering and organizing facts--not by debating the issue itself, which readers can do in other forums. The intended audience includes advocates of reason who might use this weblog as a resource: (1) philosophical activists focused on the reason vs. mysticism debate; and (2) intellectual activists engaged in specialized debates--for example, theory of evolution vs. creationism--that are proxies for the reason/mysticism debate. Comments that help answer or clarify the theme questions are welcome from advocates of mysticism and advocates of reason.
1. Identify yourself.
2. Address ideas not other commenters.
3. Write objectively: accurately, clearly, concisely, and respectfully.
4. Do not debate reason vs. mysticism.
