  • Liberty Of Thought And Expression In John Stuart Mill's On Liberty

    even though they are not thought of as current mainstream scientific theories they are a part of our history. In the case of the geocentrism theory it was once believed to be truth until it was proven wrong. Even so, Mill would contest that this belief and those that opposed it lead us to the heliocentric theory and then eventually to that of Einstein’s theory of relativity (NASA, 2009). Creationism is a bit more controversial as many people, namely those of Christian or Judaic faith, currently hold creationism as truth while mainstream science attest to the theory of evolution. An article written by a committee of Smithsonian Museum that prepares museum aficionados on the insights to their exhibit called the “Hall of Human Origins” seems to take a stance that would make Mill content in that, as the article title suggests, has taken into account and considered all aspects of science, religion, creation and evolution. In particular I believe that Mill would be an advocate of the view interaction with respect to the relationship between religion and science. This view “at minimum holds that dialogue between religion and science can be valuable, more that science and religion can constructively benefit from engagement, and at maximum envisions a convergence of scientific and religious perspectives” (Smithsonian Institution, 2015).
