brentan comments on Jul 6, 2019:
I think positivity is at the core of your post. I remember not being ready for so many years so stolidly keepin' on truckin' was the order of the day, just to exist. I wish positivity came for everyone eventually but I'm not sure about that. I'm lucky and I guess you are too. Forgiveness, I think, comes from a good place.

I'm not optimistic. My local shop thinks it's quaint that I bring my canvas bags to the shop. OK, OK. Tim Minchin, yeah.
I do not want that.

brentan comments on Jul 12, 2018:
The car's name is Lola. Is that because of the kinks?

brentan comments on Feb 1, 2019:
That’s a nice change from all these silly cartoons saying religious people are mad. I think that we developed the ability to create scenarios in our mind so as play out different eventualities in our minds. This means that we wouldn’t die from every bad idea we tried out. This ability to imagine has become more sophisticated through the progress of evolution and gradually was able to create the concept of intangibles like god, heaven etc. I got this idea from one of Jordan Peterson’s videos.

brentan comments on Jul 21, 2019:
I'm not convinced from what you posted that there is anything wrong with you. After all, normal people are very over-rated and don't usually stand up to much inspection. Maybe you're just different; everything in nature seems to fall on a bell curve. I guess that doesn't reduce the pain of loneliness, though. I haven't found any other remedy than being someone other than who I really am. Which I think is what normal people do anyway.
Answering the biggest question of all: why is there something rather than nothing?
brentan comments on Oct 5, 2019:
The video has nothing to do with the topic.
Just shoot me now, and I don't even mind the man bun, lol.

brentan comments on Apr 26, 2019:
I don't know. I just don't think so. I use words like gonna and ya when I want to get across I'm not being serious but if they become standard, I'll have to think again.
Relationship goals....
brentan comments on Feb 19, 2019:
Oh man, that is so important in life.
You level 8 people are quite up there and hard to please but thanks for the posts, It warms my heart...
brentan comments on May 18, 2019:
Surely our higher level just came from starting to post before you did. Is there a pissy attitude to newer people?
A little self depreciation

What are YOUR doomsday fears??
brentan comments on Jun 11, 2019:
That was an interesting way of putting it: 'The limbic system of the brain versus the frontal cortex'. Curiously, I've heard several good thinkers claim that the frontal cortex is the problem rather than the solution.

Are positive illusions a necessary condition for being happy?
brentan comments on Apr 20, 2019:
I think I'm a happy person. Maybe the low-resolution version of happiness is being content. I think it comes from feeling there is meaning in my life.
Gotta love it!

Christian Host Bryan Fischer Defends New Zealand Terror Attack As ‘Vigilante Justice’ ...
brentan comments on Mar 17, 2019:
Some Christians have seriously lost their way. They don't understand their own scriptures anymore, such as 'my (Christ's) kingdom is no part of this world', 'be in the world but no part of it' and 'be in subjection to the secular authorities'. They have a gospel that frees them from political concerns and allows them to grow their own spirituality as they wait on their Messiah to return and bring in his new kingdom. I think this wish to do Christ's work for him would be called presumptuousness in the Bible.
