Holy Name University's full-fledged professor and Publications Director, Dr. Eddie R. Babor, presented a paper titled "The Ethics of Belief: Nietzsche's Concept of Religious" during the 4th Taiwan – Philippines Academic International Communication Conference on Oct. 08, 2011 at the University of San Carlos, Cebu City.

The international intellectual activity was hosted by the University of San Carlos, Cebu Normal University, and the Alethia University in Taiwan.

Presenters all over the world were grouped under the following sub-themes: (1) Private and Public Governance, and Ethics; (2) Business Education and Globalization; (3) Business, Society, and the State; (4) Regional Economic Development, Tourism, and Entrepreneurship; and (5) Public Policy and Economic Growth.

It is in the sub-theme: Private and Public Governance, and Ethics where the paper of Dr. Babor was classified. Using Friedrich von Nietzsche's thoughts on philosophy of religion, Dr. Babor opined that Nietzsche's diecide dictum: "God is dead" is not a product of an atheistic intellectual conviction, but a sublime challenge dished out by Nietzsche on how we believers have authentically handled and lived our faith. Basing on Nietzsche's thoughts, Dr. Babor argued that religion is repressive and diametrically anti-life inasmuch as it consigns pleasure into the domain of suffering, perdition, and even death. He, however, made it clear that what Nietzsche lambasts is "not the ascetism but the superficiality, hypocrisy, supertitiousness, and the detached indifference..." of believers, the so-called religious.

On Oct. 19, 2011, however, Dr. Babor shifted gear in giving a lecture on the "Philippine Intellectual Property Code/Copyright Law and Getting Your Work Published" upon the invitation of BISU President, Dr. Elpidio T. Magante, at the Multi-Media Center of the Bohol Island State University Main Campus in Tagbilaran City.

The aforecited topic is part of the Seminar-Wrokshop on Instructional Materials Development which the BISU Academic Administrators have positioned to accomplish for them to produce and publish their own instructional materials.

In this lecture, Dr. Babor reminded the participants and organizers that their school's Vision, Mission, and Goals, including a serious consideration of the CHED formatted syllabi must be duly given attention. He also presented the laws governing copyright, the rights of the author over the copyrighted material, rights/roles of the editor and publisher, and the virtues that an author must keenly exercise.

He ended his lecture by congratulating the participants of their noble project and challenge them that the life of an author is not meant for lazy, irresponsible, immature, and arrogant individuals.
