    Default High Culture and Popular Culure

    Two surveys of registered scientists in Britain and the USA show that 8% believe in God and 92% don't believe in God.

    In popular culture these figures are almost reversed. This is the first difference between popular culture and high culture.

    Science is the jewel in the crown of high culture, along with music, ballet, theatre, literature, sculpture, architecture, art, while popular culture appeals to what is worst in us.

    I really don't want to see people attack atheism and agnosticism just because you feel the need to try to start disagreements here based on the idea that one group of people is far superior to others (be that high culture/ popular culture, intelligence/ normalcy, atheists/ theists, mbti/ anti-mbti).

    You're aware that people on this website do not worship mbti, right? There's plenty of criticism and plenty of people who don't take it seriously. You seem to be the one who takes it most seriously, frankly.

    Not only does this thread not make any relevant point whatsoever, it also baits pointless conflict based on beliefs instead of promoting actual discussion that serves some purpose.

    Well, unless conflict itself is the purpose.

    Oh, Mole...

    @Luminous and @Amberiat, I entirely dissent from your review of Mole's thread. I've rarely had to look too hard to see he's fluffy, fun and lovable. From what I've observed over the years, our dear, playfully creative Mole is very well aware of the true texture of a man's soul, including his own, which like all of us, isn't entirely likeable on our darkest days. Please give the man a break.

    Mole, I like the way you turn ideas into art forms, redefining the box. You're wonderfully unique and creative.

    popular culture appeals to what is worst in us.
    I agree.

    Seriously? You don't think he's egging on conflict?



    Well, StrawberryBoots, let's ask Mole what he thinks about religion, shall we? Pretty sure he'll tell you that you and other believers fall into that lowly 98%.

    I would very much like it if Mole interacted here with us in a friendly way and if he were clearly happy, but it seems to me like he's set on feeling arrogant and superior. When I've tried to be more friendly, I've gotten condescending responses like this.

    Dear @Luminous,

    For Heaven's sake, please stop. This is obviously a personal matter. Please consider trying a more tactful, private approach via PM directly to Mole.

    Peace to you.

    I read a definition : "high culture" means "exemplary culture"

    Yes, this culture, al well as classical music is technically exemplary, or high.

    Yes, but I think popular culture can become "high" if made psychologically and morally exemplary.

    This seems to be a result. Technically high does not mean psychologically or morally high.

    So, you're right. Identifying in some way with popular culture, or "appearently sinful" culture, is basically humility.

    And, I think popular culture can be made high.
    I often say "psychological impact" because it's a central concept to me.

    Lol you made a lot of assumptions there about atheism, didn't you? You think it's not psychologically healthy? Not moral? Prove it.
