I think a lot of these quotes are based on the idea that man has an intrinsic value. It's probably rooted in religion, humans thought to be the children of God. As far as I know, philosophy hasn't challenged this view while the dogs on the street know that humanity is overrated.
brentan replies on Apr 9, 2019:
Yes there is. Religion has been vehicle of these thoughts for a very long time. If you want to forget how we got here, go ahead but that's not for me.

A DRINKING SONG, by W.B. Yeats
brentan comments on Mar 27, 2019:
I wonder was he an older man when he wrote that? It is both simple and profound.
brentan replies on Mar 28, 2019:
@whispers Yes indeed. It reminds me of a dreadfully sad film called Wit that Emma Thompson starred in as an academic dying of cancer. In the end, the only thing that mattered was kindness. If you haven't seen it, it's a gruelling experience but this synopsis on Wiki has the gist of it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wit_(film)
Damn immigants
brentan comments on Mar 27, 2019:
I still say it's all about controlled immigration.

@Closeted I think I'll need words.

brentan replies on Mar 28, 2019:
@Closeted I'm disappointed you see it that way. I think that attitude just leads to continued tit-for-tat and if push came to shove, Europe would respond with great violence against its immigrants. So I always go for the middle road of controlled immigration.
Damn immigants

brentan replies on Mar 28, 2019:
@Closeted Europe opened the gates to large-scale immigration and it has changed the face of nations like Britain, France and Sweden. Many people in Europe fear their countries are being taken over and their culture destroyed. I sympathise with them. Nonetheless, I don't discount you comment that there will always be racists no matter what's going on.

brentan replies on Mar 28, 2019:
I think what I'm trying to say is the sign is too simplistic. It doesn't take any complications into consideration, such as fear and hatred of foreigners being diminished with controlled immigration.

@SiouxcitySue I was doing the words in a Northern Irish accent. I tried to get it on YT but Liam actually said the words in an English accent. So my bad! The Northern Irish accent has probaly come from Scotland so maybe that's what's happening in Georgia. Here's a little bit of the accent: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UKSyGosrXE
Gotta love it!

I've never had a cup of coffee (not will I) and I've never taken a train (this I will do, however.)
brentan replies on Mar 27, 2019:
I'm just horrified. Never had coffee and not a word of repentance! It's downright unAmerican!

Very interesting. Thank you for sharing. The evolution of gods is a great way to understand our past and our minds imo. I think a major contributing factor to moving from spirits to gods and from gods to fewer gods to monotheism can be seen through the lens that societies expanded by assimilating...

brentan comments on Mar 24, 2019:
I think teachers should not promote their ideologies in class. But how can they avoid that if the ideologies are built into the curricula? Perhaps, at the very least, the teacher/student relationship should not be allowed to take to the streets.
brentan replies on Mar 25, 2019:
It most certainly is if you take to the streets with it.

Why wear a cross?
brentan comments on Mar 24, 2019:
Why wear an agnostics t-shirt? People like things that say something about them. Me, I like books.
brentan replies on Mar 25, 2019:
@Aaaaaatheist I think many people wear to express their feelings about religion. I like books about psychology and the classics.
Atheists, what was the hardest thing to accept when you became atheist?
