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

I'm 66 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.

That's a great video! For me, that period brought about the Axial Age. Who knows, our current calamity might do the same by moving the evolution of our consciousness along again.

Blind Faith by Ben Elton is a must read if you like disturbing dystopian novels.
brentan comments on Jun 18, 2018:
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....

There is nothing divine about morality; it is a purely human affair.
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 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.
Please, please, please is there a way for this to not become a porn site?
brentan comments on Jan 26, 2020:
I don't know how it happens. I have very few problems with porn (morally or aesthetically) but never see anything on the forum that has porn in it. Could it be pure accident or some darn algorithm?

brentan comments on Mar 23, 2020:
I think both agnostics and atheists should feel it is acceptable for people to believe in gods. I'm not sure whether we should think it's reasonable. That's subjective. But live and let live is most important.

That was good. I enjoyed the fairly recent spate of TV programs that linked autism to brilliance. Monk comes to mind. There was a movie with Claire Danes telling the story of an autistic women who studied cattle and set up new more humane ways of slaughtering them. It is really good to see the amount of videos available on the workings of the autistic mind and the value non-neurotypical people can add to society. This and the continued study of the brain and how it works will open up great understanding for anyone who wants to value the differences in people.

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.
