Is the rigidness of the Scientific Method a barrier to Free Thinking?
Date: 12/9/2017 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Formal Science
Presenter: Nelly Fladstol
Synopsis: Freemasonry teaches that the study of science is key to the advancement of humanity. The Scientific Method is a formulaic process of thinking and testing of new ideas, which without, there would not be progress which opens our minds to explore. So often we come up with hypotheses about why things are the way they are. We can test these predictions in various ways, including making further observations about nature. However, Freemasonry also teaches that free thinking (thinking out of the box) is also critical to our evolution. How do we resolve this apparent dichotomy?

Should "reasonableness" be removed from the Fourth Amendment?
Date: 1/20/2018 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: History
Presenter: Jamie Shuler
Synopsis: In the 1989 US Supreme Court Case "Graham v. Connor," the Court ruled that an objective reasonableness standard should apply to Delthorne Graham's claims of excessive use of force by police officers, after he was arrested while suffering a T1 Diabetic Shock. The Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution aims to protect free citizens from "unreasonable" search & seizure, a term that does not carry a definitive meaning, but must rely on the judgement of the one employing it. Graham lost the case, and the consequences of this Amendment continue to open the door of conversation today. Freemasonry teaches that Justice should be upheld for all - as a part of this discussion we will discuss whether this interpretation of Constitutional Law ensures or blocks justice for those who believe that they have been mistreated by those who are sworn to protect everyone.

"Un ser humano es parte de un todo, llamado por nosotros el universo, una parte limitada en el tiempo y el espacio.Sus pensamientos y sentimientos como algo separado del resto ... una especie de ilusión óptica de su conciencia. Esta ilusión es una Una especie de prisión para nosotros, que nos restringe a nuestros deseos personales y de afecto para unas pocas personas más cercanas a nosotros. Nuestra tarea debe ser Liberarnos de esta prisión ampliando nuestro círculo de compasión para abrazar a todas las criaturas vivas y toda la naturaleza en subelleza."
