I've already said more "Happy Thanksgivings" than I intended to, and I'm sure I'll say more before...
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 28, 2019:
OH Lard this day we give thanks that you did not see fit to give the injuns, tanks, cannons or machine guns, (or an immunity to small pox) so as when our ancestors landed here and started stealing every damn thing they could get their filthy paws on them heathen savages could not fight back. Aaaaaaa- men!
I see a lot of hate for what people describe as FREEMASONS. What is the story with that?
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 28, 2019:
IN and around the 17th century the myth of the ancient order of Freemasons began to appear all over Europe and the Americasin the three forms Scottish Rite Freemasons York Rite Freemasons and Reformed Scottish Rite Freemasons. All claimed decent from the guild of Freemasons that built the First temple of Solomon and their three leaders the Brothers Jubal. York rite has 5 levels of membership, Scottish rite has three official levels and an a fourth grade for the "special" members. Reformed Scottish Rite has 33 level, and claims an even more illustrious history claiming decent from not only the masons but from the Knights Templar. None of them are any such thing of course but from the 17th century establishment of the first Lodges and Temples, Mason's have had ways of recognising each other by secret signs and symbols an by their oaths of fidelity are obliged to help one another in business, commerce, law and politics. This lead in the 1800's to the catholic church outlawing catholics from becoming masons as they too expected their male members to do the same thing for each other thus being a mason was a conflict of interests worthy of excommunication. I other religions however, Freemasonry became integral, especially in Mormonism, where the Temple rituals of the Freemasons were stolen wholesale for the Temple ordinances of the LDS Priesthood. The Mormon church also provided an escape root for fleeing catholics via what they called the Perpetual emigration fund, allowing catholic Freemasons to flee to America. In Europe, especially London Freemasonary became so rife in the Judiciary and the police that in 1920 the whole of (old) Scotland Yard was arrested for corruption and running a vice and pornography ring. Though there is still Masonary entwined with the law in Britain, it has never been made illegal for police or judges to be members. From these instances and a number of others the myth that the Freemasons rule the world sprang up and has formed the basis for many thrillers in fiction throughout the last 150 years. They have been blamed for everything from the raise of fascism to being responsible for Jack the ripper, from being responsible for the American two party system and the civil war in the USA to building secret bases under the Vatican so the original illuminate could spy on the pope. In truth it is pretty much a boys club (Girl's too since the founding of the Lodge of the eastern star and The Honourable Fraternity of Ancient Freemasons) for doing favours, getting drunk and holding big dinners two or three times a years.

How many people are familiar with Plato's Republic?
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 26, 2019:
Plato's cave is simply a warning that unless you are able to freely access all information you can be fooled from birth into believing what you are allowed to perceive is the normal and is all there is. It is a allegory these days better summed up in the adage that the best form of maintaining government control is the so called Mushroom method ...keep them in the dark and feed them bullshit. Modern electronic communications and wide spread dissemination of knowledge has largely put an end to this, except for those poor souls so accustomed to their shackles and the darkness of cave that they prefer not to turn around and look outside. The blissfully and willfully ignorant.

Here are a few of them You cannot be moral and atheist as morality is god given without god you are by definition immoral regardless of your actions Something can not come from nothing except god who simply is The bible is true because it is the word of god and we know this because god tells us so in the bible God does not send people to hell, they send themselves People need to be saved because of the fall of man (Adam and Eve) which is why god sacrificed himself to himself to get around a law he made, BUT you still can't take advantage of this unless you enslave yourself to him to say thank you.
Assuming an intelligent force (not God necessarily) created the Universe, is it still there?
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 26, 2019:
If it is, it may as well not be for all good it does. It obviously could not care less about the universe as a whole and about tiny life forms like us especially, we are perhaps, given that it does exist, just some form of novelty night light, that if we are lucky it will not tread on, kick or break by accident one morning. I don't think there is one personally, but if there is it is completely irrelevant, other than to serve as an inspiration for arseholes who want a pointless excuse to go to war and extort people.

Some people are simply self destructive, self loathing or are of the mentality that "If I had to suffer this why should others be spared it."

LenHazell53 comments on Nov 26, 2019:
Of course the problem is that any collapsing phase space probabillity still only leaves you with one final outcome that is observable and memorable and a whole host of unresolved realities that have not come to pass because they were not or could not be measured and then can not be proven to have been viable, simply existing only in potentia. We are therefore left with the aim of preselecting a desirable outcome and bringing it about by observing and measuring, which is for the greater part what we do anyway. We are of course then faced with the problem that on a greater scale there is not simply one observer, there are literally billions all exerting an influence and producing a cumulative result. The experiment can only present the possibility of a microcosmic and localised result dependent on the will of the eponymous "friend". In finality we are left where we started with the idea that the world is what we make of it and the old maxim that "Creation is an act of sheer will”

Woman sues Christian school over same-sex marriage expulsion
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 24, 2019:
Romans 1:26-27 26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. More bigoted shit from the Holey Babble Of course she is justified they kicked her out of a paid for course for getting married. Sick bastards
There is a movie called The Ghoul starring Peter Cushing, that came out in 1975.
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 24, 2019:
The Ghoul is a magnificent film, made by Tigron pictures and featuring the first on screen appearance of the late John Hurt and Don Henderson. In the film as you say Cushing as the ex-Missionary has lost his faith because his son who died in India could not be saved by god or science, but was resurrected by Kali worshipers with the need to feed on human flesh to stay alive. Cushing as the reverend Doctor Lawrence, is more traumatized by the fact Hinduism seems more true and powerful than Christianity than he is by his son's condition, thus leaving his son in the care of his Hindu Nanny of twenty years.

Bernardo Kastrup "Independent Scholar" (his description not mine) From his own website *My work has been leading the modern renaissance of metaphysical idealism, the notion that reality is essentially mental. I hold a Ph.D. in philosophy (ontology, philosophy of mind) and another Ph.D. in computer engineering (reconfigurable computing, artificial intelligence). * **On peer reviews of his work, again from his own web site** *I have had mixed experiences with reviewers so far. On the positive side, one of the three accepted papers has been much improved by critical and extremely thoughtful reviews at SAGE Open, a journal I now consider a prime example of high professionalism in publishing.* (** Please note Sage open is just that a self publishing site for academic journals, NOT a peer reviewed publisher of same ** anyone can contribute and review it is basically an an amateur scientists face book.) *I also had a **rejection** by Neuroscience of Consciousness that was worth more than an acceptance: although my submission was considered not to match the journal's focus,* *There have been less fortunate examples, though. Another paper of mine was rejected by AIMS Neuroscience on the basis of a single reviewer report, * *There is one journal, however, whose treatment of my submission has made me feel so disrespected that I want to share details with you. **The journal is Metaphysica.*** ( METAPHYSICA: International Journal for Ontology and Metaphysics. is a semi annual journal publication of academic Philosophy NOT science as the other journals mentioned are) * "With regret, I must inform you that your submission cannot be accepted for publication in METAPHYSICA: International Journal for Ontology and Metaphysics. Please find below the referee’s" report. Reviewer 1 *I recommend rejection because the paper does not present **sufficient quality** for the journal.* * The above is the complete reviewer report. I did not edit or shorten it; this is all there was to it. Apparently, a complete review of a 9000+ word manuscript had somehow been started and completed overnight ...for a journal that sat on my manuscript for 9 weeks. * This guy actually boast about the prestigious journals he has been REJECTED by on his own site and boast about self publish works. to be fair Has written a few books on new age bullshit including the oxymoronic "Rationalist Spirituality," "An Ontological Solution to the Mind-Body Problem", and "The Idealist View of Consciousness After Death" So about neuroscience and the functions of the the diseases of the human brain, this person knows about as much as I do.

Very interesting article about the usage and origin of thee and thou and pronouns. [nytimes.com]
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 18, 2019:
Mostly completely wrong, thee and thou became Ye and You owing to the fact that printers (when printing was invented) used Y in place of the old letter thorn lowercase þ uppercase Þ, pronounced (Th) because they had only 26 letters to select from. Quakers still tended to use older and non mechanically produced bibles, where such changes had not been made. This lead to confusion and the gradual replacement of Thou with You and Thee being confused with "the" leaving us with the non existent word Ye being used only by people trying to appear to be of a higher station. Similarly the long s (ſ) pronounced ess being replaced in print with the ornate form of the capital F leading to many amusing misunderstandings, though in time this gave way at the insistence of the church to the double ss, since people misunderstanding were calling nuns Fister and asking for "sucker" in the new pronunciation.

How is intelligence measured?
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 17, 2019:
First of all intelligence has to be defined. Intelligence is not knowledge, you can have a wealth of knowledge and still be completely idiotic in your behavior Intelligence is not aptitude, savants can be completely incapable in all but one aspect of life in in that display genius levels of aptitude. Intelligence is not "common sense" or cleverness to terms as equally undefinable as intelligence itself. Personally I define intelligence as *the high functioning ability of the brain to take in, absorb, retain and combine knowledge for appropriate use at an appropriate time in order to create by application new knowledge without further exterior tuition or guidance.* That is to say problem solving ability Therefore the only true measure of a person's intelligence is by their success rate in achieving stated objectives. Eg. The inventor is judged by his inventions that succeed in their intended purpose as to his or her intelligence. The chef who creates a new taste experience and improves the nutritional value of food is intelligent. The scientist who combines known mathematics with other seemingly unrelated facts to create an explanation for an as yet unsolved mystery in the natural world by noticing evidential patterns in both for the first time, has performed an act of intelligence.
