What's the difference between religion and spirituality?
LenHazell53 comments on Mar 30, 2020:
There is no difference, it is just playing semantic games. Spirituality always connotes mysticism or a supernatural element, and therefore alls in to exactly the same category of superstition as does religion.

This is an obvious piece about the obvious fact that the "successful" capitalist people are an infinitely renewable free resource, a commodity in to which you feed pennies and out of which you demand a lifetimes worth of labour, effort and the pennies you put in to start it going. People die anyway, and if they die sooner and are ill or old or disabled people, all the better as you no longer have to pay for their care or pretend you are grateful to them.

Montaillou by Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie is a fascinating book based on the inquitory records for the eponymous village during the 14th century in a rural setting. I highly recommend it. Granted this is the Inquisition when they were simply hunting Heretic such as the Cathars, and though they were still evil and bigoted they had not yet developed the subsequent insane cruelty of the persecution practiced on the Jews and Muslims

Would "the apocalypse of peter" have changed your mind about christianity?
LenHazell53 comments on Mar 28, 2020:
I did read the AofP a lot of years ago along with a lot of the apocryphal writings of the Christian patriarchs, you have sparked my curiosity to go back and look again with more mature eyes (I was still a godbotherer at the time I first read it). However no I don't think with would ultimately have changed my outlook very much as my out look on the Bible and ultimately religion itself was shaped by the Bible as a whole, theology and Christian practice, leading to an utter rejection of it all as dangerous nonsense. The substituting of of one fairy story for another would not have changed my mind, besides all of which Dante's version still seems a much more amusing read.

I read this morning that there is a movement in Utah to have the churches reopened, as apparently some states have exempted churches from lock downs. Oddly in Utah it was not the state legislature that closed the churches it was the Latter day saints first presidency themselves, who have themselves vanished are making no public appearance or proclamation. So much for being the one true church and the only one with a living prophet who did not see this coming.

Thrawn is a Caledonian form of the Old English þrawan "to twist, turn or distort" originally spelled with a thorn as opposed to th as in thrown past participle of to throw or cast away. Applying it to people as a character trait is a Scottish invention. The root word is thraian and is Saxon.

My stance on this is known here and is not popular but since you ask, I personally find agnosticism cowardly, indecisive and the worst kind of non committal, hedge betting and fence sitter without the courage of their own convictions, that there are. Most agnostics will fall back on the age old Theist chestnut "You cannot KNOW or PROVE that there isn't a god" Which is perhaps one of the most fucking stupid statements anyone can make. I cannot know or prove there is not a little green goblin called Mr. Shit gobbler who is invisible, intangible and inaudible living up everyone ones arse hole, but I have no possible reason to think that there is, no evidence of its existence and am not making the claim that it does not exist because there is no need to, it is bloody ridiculous. By all means go and probe random bumholes trying to find proof it it brings you pleasure but the fact you want to do something so fucking stupid says more about you than you would perhaps like people to know. Agnostics are the sort of people who buy copies of the the Warcry, the Ensign and the Watchtower just in case and hope that on the day of judgement, if it turns out to be true, that they get keep the red hot poker away by yelling "Well I never said you **didn't** exist M'lord"

There is a whole branch of so called "Magic" based on sigils, defined and formalised in the 1930's and 1940s by the Mystic and talented artist Austin Spare. Spare was a former disciple of Aleister Crowley, who quarreled with him and so left the Temple of Thelema and the Hermatic order of the Golden Dawn to form his own coven. These ambitions were cut short when Spare was blown up during the blitz and lost the use of his right arm, after which he spent ten years learning to paint again with his left hand. Amazingly in the late forties he regained the use of his right arm and became something of a novelty for painting with both hands at once.

My favourite was one written by the wife of an evangelical preacher, insisting that the accident could not possibly have been her fault as on the morning of the collision she had blessed her car with holy water from her husbands chapel, meaning it was protected from evil, so the other vehicle must have been an instrument of satan leaving her blameless.

" Do you believe that people will start accepting us for who we are?"

I don't need a special day to stand up and be proud of who I am, I need idiot people to grow the fuck up. EDIT I meant to write genitals not gentiles, my Jewish ancestry is making itself know.

LenHazell53 comments on Mar 25, 2020:
It is also the Title of a very pompous (yet very successful) Christian novel (along the same lines as Ben Hur) by Polish author Henryk Sienkiewicz in 1896. The novel has been filmed twice. It is highly sentimental and full of Christian doctrine, symbolism and moralizing. The two main characters are Marcus Vinicius an heroic Roman Tribune whose name is an appalling Latin pun for Mark(as in pay attention too) this young drunkard. and his sort of love affair with the Virtuous Christian slave woman Ligia or Lygia in some translations. Ligia in Latin means one in bondage and is the root of of the word Religion religia to place one's self in bondage to god) Most of the other character names in the book are equally ridiculous Latin puns meant to inform the reader of their characteristics and function in the plot. The "story" shows Marcus converting to Christianity, covertly converting others in the court of Nero, an historically inaccurate betrayal of Nero by a newly converted senator after Nero Burns down Rome and blames it on Christian terrorists, A Christian superhero Ursus the giant (Ursus meaning Bear) saving Ligia by literally choking the life out of a Mithras Bull and St.Paul turns up at the end to perform a ridiculous and literal deus ex machina leading to a show down between st. Peter and his evil Roman counterpart Petronius resulting in Peter being crucified in Rome in proxi for Jesus as @Marionville points out in the in the original post.

Most of us are familiar with the story of Adam and Eve in te garden.
LenHazell53 comments on Mar 24, 2020:
In the Talmudic version of the story and in Josephus' retelling, the "serpent" not snake, walked on two legs like a man and had arms and hands. He was basically a velociraptor. The serpent was also very knowledgeable but had no wisdom, Eve had wisdom but no knowledge, the serpent wanted to know what would happen to one who had both, so used eve as an experiment. What happened was they A & E immediately started shagging like rabbits and so stopped being immortal as they had to make way for all the little new people, hence death being brought in to the world. When god saw this had happened he sent Adam and Eve out in the world to populate it, and cut off the arms and legs of the serpent creating the first snake in the shape of a phallus so he would always know what his sin was. No where in any version of the myth is the serpent said to be, or be working for Satan he is just a wylie creature with too much curiosity for his own good.

What you theorise is not without precedent after the black death devastate Europe in the middle ages the balance of power shift between the serfs and the Barony resulting in the end of the feudal system and the beginnings of modern capitalism over the next few centuries. The same happened again after the revolutions of the 18th to early 20th century resulting in rampant populism and eventually fascism vs communism being used as fighting fish to destroy one another leaving the way open for industrial capitalism and monetarism. After 2020 I can see much of what you envision becoming the new norm and a technocratic age dawning.
These are my "Comparisons of Religion and Fascism" Both have one supreme leader.

I wrote this piece comparing the LDS to fascism some years ago, but it applies equally to religion in general Both Professor Stuart Hall in 1979 and in 2004 by Dr. Laurence Britt wrote articles defining the major points in identifying extreme nationalism and or fascism, just as a thought experiment I took their criteria adapted and applied it to the LDS 1. An easily identifiable symbol to rally too. 2. Specific terms/ code words or euphemisms exclusive to the group. 3. Powerful and continuing expressions of belonging to a chosen or special race. 4. Praising of a Mythological golden age of your ideology that give rights of rule by dynastic or spiritual heritage to all members and especially to leaders 5. Being included in and party to sacred mysticism denied to less worthy others 6. Physical Body Worship combined with reminders of spiritual unworthiness 7. Disdain for the importance of human rights especially those of outsiders 8. Suppression of the rights of the individual in favour of the group and the greater good 9. Identification of enemies/scapegoats as a unifying cause  10. The supremacy of the physical and or spiritual power broker 11. Institutionalised sexism  12. A controlled mass media  13. Obsession with internal security and or secrecy  14. Religion and ruling elite tied together  15. Power of corporations protected  16. Power of labour suppressed or eliminated  17. Disdain and suppression of intellectuals and the arts  18. Obsession with crime and punishment  19. Rampant cronyism and corruption  20. A pretence at democracy including Fraudulent elections or sustaining of the leadership  If you accept the above as indicative of a fascist state then the LDS is a fascist institution.
Inspired by a recent post: Is Theism a philosophy?
LenHazell53 comments on Mar 19, 2020:
Philosophy is the love of wisdom (literal translation) and is base for many branches of science, critical thinking, ideologies and methodologies. Branches of philosophy include "natural philosophy" the root of the sciences, alchemy the principles of which were eventually refined in to chemistry, physics, anatomy, zoology etc It is also however the basis of many pseudosciences such as metaphysics, theology, astrology, phrenology and my personal favourite bit of bullshit the phlogiston theory. Theism is not a philosophy it is a religious ideology, Atheism is not a philosophy it is an intellectual position or standpoint and Science is both a methodology and a practical application of that methodology.
Primaveral adjective Of, in, or pertaining to the early springtime.

and the easter bunny rubs his paws and cries out "my time to shine"
The philosophy of Atheism represents a concept of life without any metaphysical Beyond or Divine ...

I am aware of no philosophy of atheism other than the statement that the claim of the existence of deity has failed to meet its burden of proof.
