Scientific Choices Regarding Love

This is rather interesting: Pope Francis giving a TED Talk.


What he speaks about is directly connected to an issue I have been reflecting upon more and more: materialism. What is commonly referred to as “materialism” is one possible aspect of materialism, but not a necessary aspect and one can reject materialistic belief while at the same being obsessed with the accusation of material objects. Materialism is the belief that nothing exists except matter, which was condemned has a heretical belief by the First Vatican Council of the Catholic Church at the end of the 19th century.
