Where do myths come from? [facebook.com]
brentan comments on Jul 16, 2019:
I think myths come from the days when humans were grappling with the multifaceted abilities of their brains. The everyday focus on the necessaries of survival and the intuitive awareness of existence as a marvel of unknown proportion were rationalised as best they could. What can The Epic of Gilgamesh tell us about myth? In our day, what can the myths of nationalism and most recently the myths of ideology tell us? I think there is a common denominator as humanity takes data from the material world and translates it, often erroneously and often deliberately too, to create a unified front against fear and other challenges. I hate the deliberate creation of false myth to support the abuse of people. We’re going through a bad time lately where it’s difficult to find a positive myth. By the way, is globalism a myth of epic proportion or simply a historical reality?

brentan comments on Jul 16, 2019:
I'm really interested in the recent claims that civilisation goes back further than we are taught. I first came across it in Graham Hancock's YT videos about a civilisation destroyed by flood around 12,000 BC. I'm reading Harari's Sapiens right now and he also claims that civilisation began with foraging tribes rather than agrarian communities. That seems counter-intuitive but I'm always curious to hear more about this distant past.

brentan comments on Jul 15, 2019:
It was nephesh in Hebrew and meant the whole person. The Greek pneuma had the idea of immortality. I think you still have the Greek soul to live on after you unless you, like the Hebrews and many non-religious, think the mind dies when the brain dies. I'm hopeful the soul does live on but I'm in a minority.

brentan comments on Jul 13, 2019:
I was a Jehovah's Witness and got involved in the ex-JW community online for some time. Many have made it their vocation to try to bring down the Watchtower organisation and challenge JWs online. Some, like myself, don't want to give the organisation any more of my time. So I can relate to what's described here as the 'lazy' approach.

brentan comments on Jul 13, 2019:
My mum was not capable of showing much emotion. In her case, it wasn't narcissism. She was raised by a mum who spent all the time my mum was growing up in a wheelchair. So she was wrapped in her own problems and had little to give my mum. My mum's sisters were all much older than her and also gave very little. So that lack was passed on to us. I'm only bringing this up in case it might be relevant and some help.

It's looks very interesting and goodness knows we need a replacement for religious spirituality. I'm not optimistic at the moment. I fear that, like secular humanism, secular spirituality is only being taken up by a minority of intellectuals. He's probably preaching to the converted.

brentan comments on Jul 11, 2019:
I think it is a case of monopolising suffering. Like the black monopolisation of slavery, this is a monopolisation of the concentration camp. I don’t think using the camps works in this situation because nobody would dare claim Trump intends to murder all the inmates. Of course it is dreadful, as was the incarceration of British troops in the Far East under the Japanese and the Japanese concentrated in camps in America during WW2. As for who has a legitimate claim to say how the Holocaust narrative should be used, I would imagine that ‘where you have two Jews, you will always have three opinions’ will always hold true.
