The shaving brand Gillette has launched a new ad campaign in response to the Me Too movement.
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 18, 2019:
Before any of you make a judgement on this, watch the advertisement and ask if a similar advertisement aimed at correcting the worst in womanhood to advertise sanitary towels or tampons would be equally welcomed.

Kosher and halal ban
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 17, 2019:
The right thing but done for the wrong reasons. Ritual slaughter involved the production of Kosher and halal products is an abomination of animal cruelty, that should rightly be opposed and outlaws by reason and compassion. However this ban or rather this sanction is the result of right wing politics, a simple attack on a segment of society meant to make their lives difficult and residence undesirable and to score brownie points of the racist section of the right with the morons. In the long term this does more harm to the cause of animal welfare than good and will not achieve it's intent as the meat products will simply be imported for elsewhere at a financial and human cost that will make children suffer.

LenHazell53 comments on Jan 17, 2019:
Most definitely. I changed a lot at thirty five, then again at fifty. The future worries me more now as I see 1000 years of progress being thrown in to the fires of stupidity an ignorance for false comfort a profit. The worship of youth over experience and compassionate derided as weak while stubbornness is hailed as strength for the trading correct answers for desirable ones and this constituting a new acceptable truth

This "experiment" was done in 1907 with a sample size of 1, on a simple weighing machine usually used for sides of beef. A second experiment was disregarded after the results showed no weight loss, owing to "faulty scales" Dr. Duncan MacDougall, a G.P. from Haverhill, Massachusetts carried out the "experiment" to prove his thesis which was published without peer review in the Journal of the American Society for Psychical Research, and though later it was reprinted in American Medicine, it was for the purposes of discrediting it. In short It's Bollocks.

LenHazell53 comments on Jan 17, 2019:
It is an interesting hypothesis and to some extent mirrors the myths of the ancient Amazons who at the birth of their children cauterized the right breast of the girls so it would never grow and inhibit spear throwing or archery, but would cause a deep resentment and fuel anger. Boy children had the lower right leg removed, so as to inhibit them from becoming warriors and to direct more blood to the penis for the sake of fertility. Ancient myths are filled with child mutilation, always with some warped logic behind the practice for "the greater good". It should be simple logic and reason in the 21st century to consider cutting bits off infants as barbaric, stupid and cruel, but it is not, mainly because two of the worlds major religions still advocate it.

LenHazell53 comments on Jan 16, 2019:

LenHazell53 comments on Jan 16, 2019:
I have argued for years that infant circumcision is abuse. On this very site I had one lady do the nearest thing I have ever seen in written form to a fit of hysterics, telling me her son were very grateful to have had bits chopped of them when still babies, when I asked how they could possibly know the difference she informed me that the real reason she did it was that uncircumcised penis's invariably have a disgusting stench and that she did not want her future daughters in laws to suffer that. Perhaps teaching her husband to wash his might have been a less drastic solution.

U.S. Catholics' Faith in Clergy Is Shaken
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 15, 2019:
I saw a news article a year or so back about a Catholic church in Manchester that simply could not get a new priest. Young seminary graduates would not do there, nor old lags waiting out their time to their retirement, it was simply too dangerous and with failing congregations to pointless and unprofitable. Finally they recruited a young priest from Nigeria and moved him in. At the time of the interview the poor chap was distraught, his faith shaken and his mind and nerves in tatters. He had come from a congregation of a hundred plus, singing happy families who believed utterly to find himself in a huge church with a congregation of 14 people all over sixty who wanted dirges and Latin masses, and buildings that had boarded up windows and bars on those not broken. Mother Church deserted him and refused to move him out, he had been mugged and subjected to racial hate crime and 'surprisingly' found his prayers going unanswered. I will admit to feeling sorry for the man, or rather boy because even at nearly thirty his maturity was no where near up to coping with the task with which he had been lumbered, he had two options, stick it out and hope things got better, or resign from the priest hood, get a job until he could save enough money to go home. In the town where I was born stood a huge catholic church known as St. Hilda's, the size of a cathedral, it stood empty for years, was a listed building of historical significance so could not be altered, modernised or demolished but had no congregation as the entire area it once served had undergone urban renewal. Yet still it incurred ground rent and maintenance costs to keep it safe. The Diocese tried to sell it to the local council and local business but to no avail, the preservation order and listing made it inviable for anyone to take it on. Then one night their prayers were answered and the whole building burned to the ground, no one called the fire brigade for an hour after the blaze started and the fire engines could not get to the church because of an INconvenient road traffic collision on the only road in and out. So sad, but fortunately the building was insured as it was still being used as a repository of church records. This the state of the RC in the inner cities and industrial towns of the UK now.
We must be ever vigilant to halt nonsense like this ! WHY can't they keep it in their damn churches ...

Britons View Atheists As More Moral Than Believers, Religion More Harmful Than Good
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 15, 2019:
In the UK Christianity will have died in the next few generations. Given the choice children don't want to go to church and if forced stop as soon as they are able. Even young Muslims are turning away or simply paying lip service to their beliefs and almost every Jew I know under the age of 40 claims only to be culturally Jewish. In an enlightened and educated society religion cannot thrive, which is why the religious are trying desperately to retain the grip they once had on schooling, not to further it, but to censor it. Those who cling to creationism and fundamentalism are beginning to either totally embrace it and become flat earthers or are becoming so aware that they are objects of ridicule that they rethink their stance. Christians are becoming aware that their leaders and elders are condemning the Chinese for rewriting scriptures while in effect censoring their own. Hypocricy is rampant and can no longer be hidden under the guise of sanctity and even the less educated in the developed world are beginning to see the problems. Which is why the only place being bombarded with missionaries and showing church growth for all faiths are those places where education is non existent and there is no internet, the biggest enemy religion has ever faced, an infinite source of free information and open comment.

LenHazell53 comments on Jan 15, 2019:
The original meaning of the word religious was to deliberately tie or bind yourself to something anew (from Ligia to bind, the same root as the word ligature) so restricting your life for the purposes of lifestyle, faith and worship is technically religious no matter what the object. The word religious has gained a very specific meaning in the English language over time but still pretty much amounts to a strong association to a particular focus in life.

By the 7th century they had all but gone, however many neo-manichean offshoot cults moved in to Gnostic Christianity and of course suffered the wrath of The Inquisition in the 12th century on ward.

LenHazell53 comments on Jan 13, 2019:
It is utter nonsense the BBC has been fully capable of funding itself for years, truth is it is a gravy train and wastes money at an unbelievable rate on perks and fringe benefits for executives, for favourites and to finance radio and TV that no one watches or listens to. The License fee is a joke, and could be abolished tomorrow, the BBC actually spend more money on catching and prosecuting license fee evaders than it generates. Since the government appoint all the governors of the BBC it has pretty much become a retirement plan for old MPs Lords and civil servants as a reward for services rendered, where they need do bugger all and get huge bonuses for not doing it. It is a scandal ridden, twisted organization at the top and often ruins it's own success' when they conflict with other interests outside. a case in Point being when Michael Grade was Director general of the BBC and killed off Doctor Who for the first time. WHY? Because the Grade family owned ITC entertainment which worked for the ITV channels producing adventure and science fiction programmes that continually got their arses kicked by Doctor Who. Grade became chairman of the Board of Governors but resign in 2005 to work for ITV PLC and within months Doctor who was back on the air. Someone in the hierarchy of Aunty Beeb again has it in for The Doctor and is slowly but surely poisoning the show to death.

LenHazell53 comments on Jan 8, 2019:
A major cause of the Dunning-Kreuger effect is instilling in to very young children the idea that they are in some way or another superior. By giving them a false sense of confidence self righteousness and infallibility you create a self justifying idiot who can never know he is an idiot because that in itself is, to him, a stupid idea. Either by religion, ethnicity, religion the child is made to think they are privileged and must never let anyone tell them they are wrong, especially if that person is "other". For example my father would never accept that he was wrong about anything if my mother corrected him, it was simply impossible that a woman, by virtue of being a woman, could possibly know better than him. Even if I or my brother backed up my mother as being correct, then he would say that proved his point as the woman was only parroting other men and did not understand what she was saying herself. In the USA children are raised to believe themselves privileged to be citizens of the greatest country on earth, to be "white" American is both to be a member of the greatest nationality AND the superior race. TO be White American and MALE is to be unassailable regardless of any other factor such as education. When Trump came along and showed himself as a White American Male who agreed with these self deluded idiots and justified their belief in their own false self confidence it simply reinforced what they "know" to be true and provided a totem to rally to.

The Latin word for right is dexter and for left, sinister.
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 7, 2019:
It comes from linguistic confusion in religious circles The idea that those who oppose god "walk not the path of righteousness", Deliberately confused right meaning correct and right the directional indicative Therefore those not following the "right" path follow the "left hand path", the "Sinister" path, so sinister came to be synonymous with evil. Even today many mystics of various factions still identify one another as travelers on the left hand path.

Kubrick's The Shining Recently there was a post asking people to name their favorite movie...
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 7, 2019:
The Shining is the Islam or Christianity of Movies, in that those who are willing to defend it are willing to tie themselves in to mental gymnastic knots and say openly stupid things in in order to defend it. I was in the day a huge Stephen King fan and saw the Shining the first performance of the first day in my home town. The cinema was packed and we waited with baited breath. Then it started. We were treated to a glorious cinematic overhead shot of the Torrance car heading to the over look as the shadow of the Helicopter filming them drifts in to sight. That is when the sniggers started. By the the end of the film most of the audience left wiping tears from their eyes and declaring that not billing it as a comedy was a stroke of genius. Then as months passed many of my circle of friends began to hear rumours of this minor piece being hailed as a work of actual cinema genius. I seriously wondered if they were talking about the same film, the one with the kid croaking at his finger, the one with Shelly Duvall mugging at the camera and Jack Nicholson turning out his most over the top ham sandwich of a performance since "The Raven". But No it was the same film and then the art centre corner bar critics began trying to explain WHY it was not only a really good film, but a Great film. Within ten years the ridicule and mockery that greeted it's initial release had been over taken by the propaganda. I am afraid no matter how blasphemous it may seem, I will stick by my original assessment that Kubrick's the Shining is terrible, it verges on so bad it is good, but is not self aware enough to merit that mitigation. Try this experiment... sit and watch the film with someone who has never even heard of it is not a Kubrick fan. Tell them nothing, put it on and watch the cloud of incredulity slide over their face and see it give way to either a plea to turn the crap off, or to near hysterical laughter.
Raymond Burr!

According to the Mormon church, and they are deadly serious, Mithra, freemasonary, Tammuz worship and Dionysus were all sent to earth by the devil to mock the Christian saviour and the true faith, thousands of years before he was born in order to sow doubt in the minds of men. Taking the piss by doing it before he did, sort of inverted plagiarism. An them thur Murman boy went ahead and lapped it all up.
