    World of Woo: Why won’t mediums solve crimes?

    Penn Gillette and Teller of Showtime’s Penn &:Teller::Bullshit interviewed John Walsh of the TV show America’s Most Wanted and all shared the same answer too.

    The Dynamic Duo of Debunking also refuted any evidence for an afterlife from which the dead can communicate when they exposed and refuted Ouija Boards and Near-Death Experiences (NDEs.)

    The dead still tell no tales. Maybe one day, more media consumers will use this as a springboard to equally question “The Narrative” and “The Current Thing” on all other matters.

    A look at Moral Foundations Theory (with video).

    I like Moral Foundations Theory, it’s been influential, but I think it suffers from not having a theoretical basis to explain it.  It’s put together ad-hoc, which is fine, but has no theory, beyond promoting cooperation that promotes survival and reproduction.  Consequently it’s a bit wobbly on details.

    For example, my theory states that a different joint goal and a different method of collaborating to achieve it, gives rise to a moral domain, and the joint goal and method of achieving it explain the values in that domain.  Then, the morality of the domain is the regulation of this type of collaboration.

    This is why my theory can connect well with traditional moral philosophy – it’s exact, you can connect it to things.
