everybody always has a point of view

if you are interested in understanding my point of view and are willing to spend your time clarifying the definitions i am willing to spend my time engaging in the discussion

this is precisely what is going on now with me and WhoWee
Please clearly state what you are posting about. Give me a short, to the point, clear statement of what you wish to discuss.

Your thread title is "evolution of our socio-economic system - what should scientists do about it?" I have yet to see anything about this.

I think it might be difficult to raise children in a "fact based" environment - kids need emotional connections.
"fact based" <> "lacking emotional connections"

"emotion" = "the response to _fact_ without employment of 'conscious mind of reflexion'"

emotion is the "older" in evolutionary terms than "deliberative capability"

it is not possible to be "emotionless" but disciplined thinking and adherence to scientific method builds connectivity in the brain that favours certain emotions over the others

in my experience people who never stop learning are "better" parents simply because they pay more attention to the trajectory of cognitive development of their children

that was in reply to WhoWee because he is the only one who showed any interest in the topic by way of asking clarifying questions

i also agree that his comment was not directly related to the topic but i do not mind answering it in the hopes he/she would like to get back to the topic

You have yet to make a comprehensible OP. If you just want to discuss anything, then please take it to your personal blog. That's what the blog is for.

My intent was to determine your meaning. Your answer indicates that you believe an emotional bond is important with children. It also clarifies your position relevant to developing thought patterns and (I'll assume) reasoning?

With this said - do you believe children of scientists would need to be kept separated from other children - or would they associate freely?

what is not comprehensible in points (1) -(4)?

any specific one?

all of them?

you do not see how (4) flows from (1)-(3)?

any specific word needs clarification?

could you ask specific question rather than saying that opening post is not comprehensible
