Meet the Author

My friend Janis Hoffman, who wishes to remain anonymous, is writing about the wild adventures of a highly intelligent, self-centered brat, Alice, who discovers the ancient Egyptian World of Shadow and runs circles around people at UC Berkeley.Our goal is to expand what you can think, feel and create, to invite you to the dance. My books include: two in the area of self-help psychology; papers, such as how to create useful idiots; and, a play and book about what happens when a group of university professors invite a shaman from the Sonoran Desert to share his world.A serious warning! You need a firm grip on reality and a reasonably stable life, otherwise best to pass on by.And not for the easily offended! Adult language is used when appropriate to the narrative, as in ALICE, and techniques for enhancing sexuality are given in THE MAGIC THEATER II. Taboos are broken. Political correctness ignored. Old habits and ways of thinking challenged.

    A well-written thought piece

    Kinnie's essay is a quick and easy read that invites the reader to consider the propositions of science devoid of morals, and of religion devoid of the scientific fact. There is no preaching here- the author leaves plenty of room for the reader to bring their own thoughts and beliefs into the "dialog". If you hold to the philosophy of not only knowing what you believe but why you believe it, then Kinnie's offering will provide a pleasant diversion.

    Religion and Science shouldn't be at odds...

    Description:

    AMORAL SCIENCE----BRAINLESS RELIGION & HOW TO CREATE USEFUL IDIOTS by PhD Ernest Kinnie is a set of papers describing how science and religion are separate entities that really have nothing to do with each other, but that scientific and religious communities have constantly pushed them into conflict. Kinnie believes that neither topic is capable of being judged or debunked by the other; they are like separate languages.

    Review:

    I enjoyed these papers and Kinnie's opinions on both religion and science. I found that they provoked many philosophical thoughts and discussions, especially since I am a microbiologist who believes in a higher power. Very enjoyable, and great material for debate.
