Would you consider making a science and buddhism forum?

I am going to submit a science article link and some quotes (Empathy Represses Analytic Thought, and Vice Versa: Brain Physiology Limits Simultaneous Use of Both Networks, http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/20 ... 161416.htm), but there isn't an obvious place to post. Dharma-free-for-all, Lounge or maybe News & Current Events are the likely places, but perhaps if there was a specific forum for science related stuff, we could start collecting some interesting links and discussion in one place?

I would find this helpful too. :thumbsup:
Buddhism as mind science that is verifiable as beneficial. It is about time scientists underwent mind training. :tongue:

To avoid it becoming silly, it could be a sub-forum of Academic Buddhism.

Viniketa's idea of putting it in Academic Discussion sounds like a pretty good idea. I hadn't thought of that. It would kick the standard of discussion up a notch. If it is created in AD, then we could try it out a while on an experimental basis and see how it works.

It begins to sound really good if it is put in the Academic forum. I like "science" to be scientific.

Seems like everyone likes the idea, but it hasn't been created yet.
In the meantime I've found this article that I (at least) find interesting and it definately has a "science" edge to it.
So I hope I can get away with posting a link to the article?
The story is at:
http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/20 ... Science%29

Hope it will work.
Any comments appreciated.
Thank you
:smile:

P.S. The article is about a recent discovery of what MAY be a precourser to DNA and a possible link to a life system that MAY have predated DNA based life.
On Earth.

Fascinating [raises Spock type eyebrow]
Never heard of AEG before. As we get closer to the link between animate and inanimate, perhaps rocks will be seen as a primitive form of pre sentience and potential Buddhas? :woohoo:
More work for the Mahayana . . .
Interestingly I notice as science has incurred on the gap of the life giving flying spaghetti monster, that is no longer a proof of Divine Noodliness. I hope science is enabled to study further the genetic changes of practitioners, some interesting work there . . . :thumbsup:

What, you question his Divine Noodliness? Geez, what next? No more Tanginess of the Holy and Harmonious Tomato Sauce? What about the Splendid, Sumptuous and Superb Symmetry of His Cheesy Sprinkles? I suppose you're going to tell us it's just RANDOM or something?

It is oodles of noodles out there. For example in quantum tunnelling which occurs in the human nose and in photosynthesis . . . basically particles bypass going through and just arrive . . .

Thanks for the suggestion.

The team is currently discussing whether to create a specific science and buddhism forum/sub forum. Until such times as a decision is reached this thread will be locked.

Regards,
