Website2: Home Page
In truth, website-2 is not entirely sure where it is going, as it simply started out as a placeholder for other areas of interest, which do not necessarily fit the profile of the discussions in website-1. However, its goal might be expressed in the words of Confucius and the idea that knowledge starts with the acceptance of one's ignorance.
thought is labor lost;
thought without learning is perilous.
The links in the column right in the table below point to the various discussions submitted so far.
As suggested, in some respects, website-2 might be
described as an extension of website-1,
but with a different emphasis being placed on the main topics of discussion. For
example, it could
be argued that the difference between a 'worldview' and a 'perspective'
is simply a matter of scope, for we might be more willing to consider
a different perspective than a different worldview. Likewise, while 'evolution' and 'development'
might be similar in some respects, they tend to differ in scope when
it comes to the timescales involved. Finally, while there
has always been an obvious link between 'science' and 'technology',
we might limit the scope of technology to the applied sciences, which
has already found a specific application in the modern world, e.g. computing.
Therefore, website-2 simply provides the option to investigate and
learn about other topics that would otherwise appear out of context
