This is taken right in front of the Alcazaba in Almeria.

I'm 65 years old. I was born and raised a Roman Catholic, being Irish. As an adult, I was a Jehovah's Witness for about fifteen years. I'm separated for the last four years. I have two sons who are both grown up and living their own lives. I'm an avid reader, fascinated by mythology, religion and psychology. I love all kinds of music, play video games and watch TV. I exercise under duress. Although technically bisexual now, I have never had any homosexual interest during my married life (perhaps it was repressed) and don't want to start now. I would like to meet a woman to share my life with, to talk and share and laugh and have sex and make life worthwhile as the world goes mad around us.

brentan comments on May 1, 2019:
This is the idea behind the Orestes in ancient Greece. The myth was that the corpse emitted a miasma that could only be removed by justice, understood as revenge. The Furies symbolised that revenge. The court system was set up to end the constant tit-for-tat revenges. At the end of the story, the Furies were permanently placed under the judge's podium in the court to signify the old justice was still understood but superceded by the less subjective and less murderous civil justice system.

It's weird to think his opinion on the subject is important because so many people think he's inspired by God. Saying that, I don't know if he claimed this opinion is infallible. He's such a fake. Even some Catholics say he is a 'pope for the unbelievers' because he does nothing for Catholics and spends all his time trying to make Catholicism look good to unbelievers.

"And empty words are evil." - Homer
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2020:
I guess it's the morality of a word signifying something, and it should really also signify the thing it is meant to signify. That notion is getting away from us, I think, as words are being used mostly to advance personal aims. It reminds me of Kant's 'concepts without intuitions are empty, intuitions without concepts are blind'.

Don't take it to heart. Forums are full of the best and the worst of us. If you have an opinion, hang in there and defend it. I think anything related to God gets a knee-jerk reaction from people still annoyed or upset at religion. The thing is, in this case, everlasting life can be discussed outside of belief in a god.

That looks like a good read. Ben Elton is a talented man. I was reading recently about Giambattista Vico who believed that history is circular and each cycle has 4 phases - the age of gods, the age of heroes, the age of men and the return to the age of the gods. If he is right, we are well along in the age of man and I think I can feel a change in the air....

brentan comments on Apr 17, 2019:
There is an odd message in the apostle Paul's letter to the Galatians where he tells about the fruits of holy spirit: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance - Galatans 5: 22, 23. The context is given in verse 16: This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.  We don't look on these virtues as spiritual. We see them as human virtues. I can't tell whether Paul saw all virtue as the spirit of God manifesting itself, or he thought the Holy Spirit added a layer to human virtue that improved on it or perhaps perfected it.

brentan comments on Jun 8, 2018:
I really like good English. I would read Joseph Conrad books even if they had no story. I'm Irish so I'm raised on lots of travesties of the English language. Many of them are very funny. I think it mostly has to do with lower income people getting a very bad education. I read enough to know how language aspires to express complex ideas and inspires through communication. I think it's criminal that poor people can be robbed of a share in this level of consciousness. Using 'axe' instead of 'ask' sounds bad but not being able to 'axe' the right questions is worse.

brentan comments on Jul 6, 2018:
We must be careful not to make the same mistakes as the religious groups. We have the same tendency to make doctrines and glorify people. We also shouldn't become smug or self-satisfied and feel contempt for the non-believers. It is good to see atheist groups becoming charity conscious. I guess they can be fairly accused of not wanting the religious organisations to have a monopoly on virtue but it is a fine thing to see and I doubt competing with religion is not the only reason. Some religious groups find little reason to take an interest in ecology because they believe the earth is meant to be destroyed by human greed and then saved by Christ. The atheist community can highlight the problems and communicate ways to improve the earth's condition.

John Vervaeke on the necessary merger of science and religion: []
brentan comments on Dec 5, 2019:
There is an opinion out there that we have been on the road to nihilism ever since the Greeks started philosophising. That opinion stretches to say we are now suffering the worst of the negativity involved in rationality and materialism. That’s where our new batch of intellectuals on the Internet come in. My feeling about the different approaches used by these guys is that while Peterson tracks the human imagination through the centuries, Vervaeke breaks down out thought processes into the nuts and bolts of thinking. I’ve watched 46 lectures in the series so far and my conclusion is that proper thinking is how to awaken from the meaning crisis and John covers the huge amount of ground where wrong paths can be taken. I really like his talks with religious thinkers on the Internet – Jonathan Pageau, Mary Kochan and Sevilla King, even if Sevilla is really focused on Pirsig’s take on Eastern philosophy. So will proper thinking solve the problem and give back meaning in our lives? Or will we be forced to consider a return to spiritual thinking and the community of religion? Time will tell but I feel very strongly that our left-hemisphere ways of thinking have led us into a blind alley and we desperately need a way out.
