People prefer to be lied to. Even though deep down in their logical mind they know it's all a lie.
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 23, 2019:
Most lies are concocted to make life easier, give easy answers and make people feel better about themselves. Truth and reality almost always involve learning, thinking and doing three things modern society has successfully demonized in civilised people who want an easy, comfortable, paid for life handed to them on a plate *as a right.*

Priest’s sex with teenage boy was ‘consensual’ says Vatican | Barry Duke
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 22, 2019:
It is worth remembering in this context that the age of consent within the Vatican city was 12, until 2013 when the current Pope was persuaded to raise it to 18. Therefore under the contemporary Vatican law when they giving sanctuary to paedophile priest, those men had not within the Vatican committed (in most cases) a criminal offense. Sick, sick organisation.

Are morality and empathy basically the same?
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 22, 2019:
Not at all, some of the worst of sadists have been completely emphatic, so as to savour the pain of others, if they did not understand and empathise with the agony they inflicted, they could derive no joy from it. Morally they can know it is wrong and get a kick from doing wrong, but sharing in the pain of another requires an emphatic bond.

Forbidden Planet [imdb.
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 20, 2019:
Forbidden Planet is basically a retelling of the Tempest by Shakespeare, with Morbius filling in for Prospero and Robbie as Ariel while Caliban is reborn as the monster from the Id. The idea of Technology/Magic setting everyone free to destroy themselves by removing all limits on want and desire could be read as a prophesy for the internet and the digital age is true enough. When everyone thinks they are a god, minor disputes can wipe out the word as major disputes are ignored as other peoples problems.

Should sharia law be banned from the West?
LenHazell53 comments on Jan 18, 2019:
Sharia holds the same status in the west as do church courts, which do exist still and have since the middle ages. These religious "law" systems have only the power that people give them, if you do not accept their authority and do not recognise them they have no authority at all. If in trying to exert authority they break the law of the land, they are liable to prosecution themselves. A lot of clubs, institution and still some churches especially teh Mormons and the scientologists do have their own internal disciplinary systems even foorball clubs do, but no matter what they may CALL themselves they are not courts, they are not law making or enforcing bodies, they are people playing at authoritarianism. The best thing to do is ignore them or report them to the actual law when they go to far. You may as well try to ban your teacher for gving you detention.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

How do you feel about people who attend church for the communal aspect?

Idiots, tacitly supporting vileness. I have as much respect for these people as I do for the guy who is a member of the KKK because they have really good picnics.

One bunch of idealistic power hungry hypocrites complaining that they are being persecuted by another bunch of idealistic power hungry hypocrites. So what else is new.
Not a unused word, just a thought.
