My guess is that they didn't understand any more than that cause and effect idea of David Hume, i.e., we know because it always works out that way. A lot of the purification rules were designed to keep the temple holy, in the sense of separated from impurity. For this reason, even cripples and the mentally ill were barred from the temple.

brentan comments on Mar 23, 2020:
That was very hopeful. I hope a return to 'normal' doesn't send people back to sleep. For me, this was the heart of the article: Getting through coronavirus will be an exercise not just in building societal resilience, but relearning the values of cooperation, compassion, generosity and kindness, and building systems which institutionalize these values. It is high time to recognize that such ethical values are not simply human constructs, products of socialization. They are cognitive categories which reflect patterns of behaviour in individuals and organizations that have an evolutionary, adaptive function. In the global phase shift, systems which fail to incorporate these values into their structures will eventually die.

To those who have a Christian background: How are New Testament theology and evolution compatible?
brentan comments on Mar 22, 2020:
I see the fall of Adam in Genesis in exactly the same way and I think its dishonest and disingenuous for believers to see Jesus nowadays as an archetype of perfect man instead of redeemer of Adam's sin. The ancient Hebrews looked on the human being as a composite of mind and body - nephesh. This meaning held for many centuries, as in 'the ship went went down and 200 souls were lost'.This composite of mind and body was activated in life through God's spirit. When we die, that nephesh dies and the 'spirit goes back to God who gave it' - Ecclesiastes 12:7. That indivisibility of mind and body fits well with Dawkins' idea of the mind dying because the brain has died. The door opening up the possibility that the mind lives on is gaining some purchase nowadays as the mind is perceived as outside the brain and the brain takes in these thoughts, processes them in real time, and returns them to the mind in updated form. After death, our mind would remain as part of universal consciousness.

I think he means the virus has proved open borders wrong. The virus really seems to prove all movement wrong. So that's extreme measures for an extreme situation.

"Poetry is an echo asking a shadow to dance." ---- Carl Sandburg
brentan comments on Mar 20, 2020:
I've been reading lately that poetry has always been an attempt to return to the fully integrated world of ancient life. It is said to come from the right hemisphere of the brain that has been submerged by left-brain dominance. Curiously, The poet Shelley wrote in his A Defense of Poetry that poetry was the first expression of philosophy.

brentan comments on Mar 19, 2020:
'Nor can we say that modern science itself is exempt from a similar patterning. For the modern intellectual landscape is informed with the same needs, and often in its larger contours goes through the same quasi-religious gestures, though in a slightly disguised form. These scientisms, as I shall call them, are clusters of scientific ideas which come together and almost sur-prise themselves into creeds of belief, scientific mythologies which fill the very felt void left by the divorce of science and religion in our time. They differ from classical science and its common debates in the way they evoke the same response as did the religions which they seek to supplant. And they share with religions many of their most obvious characteristics: a rational splendor that explains everything, a charismatic leader or succession of leaders who are highly visible and beyond criticism, a series of canonical texts which are somehow outside the usual arena of scientific criticism, certain gestures of idea and rituals of interpretation, and a requirement of total commitment. In return the adherent receives what the religions had once given him more universally: a world view, a hierarchy of importances, and an auguring place where he may find out what to do and think, in short, a total explanation of man. And this totality is obtained not by actually explaining everything, but by an encasement of its activity, a severe and absolute restriction of attention, such that everything that is not explained is not in view'. - Julian Jaynes The Origin Of Consciousness.

brentan comments on Mar 19, 2020:
As time goes by, it seems that atheism has left a void that is filled (or unfilled) with a sense of meaninglessness and nihilism. This problem has resulted in many trying to fill the void with meaningfulness and other practices. Sam Harris is a good example. Rupert Sheldrake's Science and Sacred Practices details the many ways sacred practices, such as pilgrimage, are being used today by all kinds of people to feel a part of something bigger than themselves.
I figured it out.

brentan comments on Mar 18, 2020:
I've heard a new term on the market these days called 'relevance realisation'. It comes to try to solve a problem that has existed even before open minds, a problem called 'combinatorial explosion'. This is the problem our poor brains are faced with because of endless possibilities. If I understand relevance realisation correctly, it comes from intuition rather than calculation, a kind of 'mother-wit'. I'm hoping it will save me from myself.

brentan comments on Mar 15, 2020:
I think it's the head conflicting with the heart. Perhaps it's a transitional stage that will end when the head takes over. Then again, the head shouldn't really be allowed to take over completely. It wouldn't allow us to be completely human. Spinoza might offer a solution when he says knowledge can't affect emotion. He believed one emotion can only be changed by a stronger emotion. For example, smokers are often unaffected by knowledge of the consequences. They might be swayed by the emotional sense of freedom from nicotine. If knowledge can't do away with feelings of eternal punishment, I wonder what other stronger feeling might.

Worried about the shortage of booty paper in the upcoming coronapocolypse?
brentan comments on Mar 14, 2020:
I listened to a Muslim guy on social media taking a lot of flak over their bum-washing custom. I thought he had a point but I think some use of paper first is best. Here's the thing, though, and I got this from the Muslim guy too - complicated poops are often the result of a bad diet, i.e., lack of fruit and fibre. The better the diet, I think, the less paper needs to be involved. The stool comes out in one piece, no leftovers. Better for our finances, better for hygiene, better for the environment.
Some praise for ritualistic practice
brentan comments on Mar 14, 2020:
One of the problems dealing with ancient people is that we look at them through our modern eyes, thinking they thought like us but with less science. Writers like Owen Barfield and Julian Jaynes are helpful to get us to see these people through *their* eyes. One very important conclusion, if it is true, is that ancient people had no consciousness as we understand it, but rather only the consciousness of the nervous and limbic systems. Barfield describes their sense of their world as being in it rather than outside looking in and terms it 'original participation'. Jaynes describes their minds as bicameral, the one side unconsciously engaging in life's common events and the other side unconsciously determined by what they saw as gods.

brentan comments on Mar 12, 2020:
I think our civilisation owes a lot to our Judeo-Christian heritage and the modern philosophies that grew out of it thanks to the contributions of the many Christian scholars advancing human thought through the centuries. We live in a peculiar situation these days where we can criticise the many faults of Christianity from the vantage point that Christianity has taken us to. The soul-destroying emptiness that engulfs many people today is the lack of that religion that despite its many faults, was a philosophy that gave meaning to so many people's lives.
CFI has it right.
brentan comments on Mar 12, 2020:
The trouble is there seems to be a correlation between rationality and lack of meaning in our lives. To put it a different way, religion has traditionally given people meaning in their lives and rationality gave them a meaningless mechanical universe that was/is very empty and depressing. OK, OK, there are people who can find meaning in life without religion. I'm one of them. For many, many people, our modern secular world isn't working out well for them and we see the symptoms of this dis-ease everywhere.
UK: "Canceled for telling the truth" : .
brentan comments on Mar 12, 2020:
Even though I live next door, I don’t know exactly what’s going on in the UK these days. I get the feeling it’s a combination of a minority who live in ghettos. I feel that way because Muslims I meet in Spain seem such nice, friendly people. Could we conclude that these Muslim criminals in the UK are scum? Even if we thought maybe their social status there has turned them into scum? I think government could reverse the mentality of these criminals if it didn’t view immigrants as another source to preserve an underclass that will keep labour costs down.

I thought the Industrial Revolution had a toxic effect on the daily lives of human beings so a return to work from home might look like a return to the good ol' days. The problem is our homes aren't part of the old feudal/agricultural landscape which, along with its bad elements, gave both men and women a home-based place in the business of life. This return to the home, I fear, might be just another stage in a world lacking a sense of community, by removing the need to engage even for the sake of a paycheck.

brentan comments on Mar 10, 2020:
Here's something not directly related. I heard it from Tom Holland in a YT video. He says there has been for some time now a move to get away from the 'Christianisation' of other religions. This idea is about treating beliefs as universal rather than local, and principled rather than organic. This Christianisation, he says, was a feature of colonialism. He says the recent developments in India, where Modi is pushing for a nation of Hindus only, is an expression of this move back to local gods, local identity, local religion..

My country seems to have had a 'comfortable' relationship with laws for centuries. It might be from being under English rule, where laws were viewed as oppressive so it was only right to flout them. It might also stem from the Celtic spirit, where individualism was prized more than community. Your story, I think, shows the good side of discretion, something that has been rigorously routed out by the law as it enforces uniformity and fights abuse through favouritism.

brentan comments on Mar 9, 2020:
I think of rationalisation as the most effective course of action and justification as the morally right course of action. I think the former has always been a subjective matter. The latter, in the Christian world, has traditionally been viewed as objective but not anymore in our postmodern view of morality.
