Finally something made me laugh today
brentan comments on Jul 7, 2019:
I think if we look at him within his Biblical context, I would say no. Outside of it, maybe but that might be because we often equate goodness in a man as a sign of unmanliness, weakness.

brentan comments on Jul 6, 2019:
I think positivity is at the core of your post. I remember not being ready for so many years so stolidly keepin' on truckin' was the order of the day, just to exist. I wish positivity came for everyone eventually but I'm not sure about that. I'm lucky and I guess you are too. Forgiveness, I think, comes from a good place.

brentan comments on Jul 6, 2019:
That is a really well-crafted poem. I enjoyed the Vico-like trip through the ages of man and the sense of things speeding up through time. I'm thinking about the connection between word, logos and DNA.

brentan comments on Jul 6, 2019:
I think the basic idea is that he is setting the world up for judgment in the future, which I believe they thought was coming within a generation. So there was no talk of judgment, sinners were embraced while the focus was on the good news of the gospels. But that was all to change when he came back.

Nature is infinitely more wonderful than any religious concept. - Oliver Sacks
brentan comments on Jul 6, 2019:
I'm not so sure about that but there is one way that nature trumps a religious concept - it is real and I'm convinced religious concepts are part of our wonderful imagination.

brentan comments on Jul 5, 2019:
It's not easy to deal with a situation where huge numbers of economic migrants lie about being refugees. I think their bad treatment is done in the hope that two wrongs will make a right.
Can we hope to achieve a more equal society?
brentan comments on Jul 5, 2019:
I've started reading a book called Saharasia that claims violent cultures grew up for the first time because of the desertification in the Sahara through the Middle East to Central Asia. Theoretically, this harsher life changed a generally more peaceful matriarchal society to a patriarchal one. This is said to have happened about 6,500 years ago.

brentan comments on Jul 4, 2019:
I've only picked up the idea that the mind has two departments: reason and intuition. I've read qualia described as sensations of perception and placed in the intuition department. I've only read Pirsig's ZAMM and couldn't help thinking of his quality as related to qualia. I've noticed ambiguity in terms recently as we discuss these things. I suppose it's because we've all read some books and not others.

The Life of the Mind: Hannah Arendt on Thinking vs. Knowing and the Crucial Difference Between Truth...
brentan comments on Jul 4, 2019:
I had got used to thinking about reason as the same as rationality and thus being limited in perception, intuition, that type of thing. But I think it's just down to choice of terminology. I hadn't heard of her other than the work she did during the Nuremburg trials. I should put the book on a wish list. It looks very interesting.

brentan comments on Jul 3, 2019:
I think they both know it's just a game and Trump is so confident of the pliability of the public that he's not afraid to show it. Earlier presidents are respected more because they had the 'decency' to try to hide what they were doing. Trump is an education for anyone who wants to see the abuse laid out right in front of them. My worry is that nothing will be learned and the next president will be 'business as usual'.

Slavery - Chapter and verse... [patheos.com]
brentan comments on Jul 1, 2019:
Wow. The Old Testament clearly endorsed slavery (Exodus 21, for example). The New Testament was different in that the priority was not the abolition of slavery in a revolutionary way but the development of new human relations in an unfair world which they believed was about to be brought to an end. The apostle Paul's letter to the slave-owner Philemon regarding his runaway slave Onesimus is very interesting, especially these verses: For this perhaps is why he was parted from you for a while, that you might have him back forever,  no longer as a bondservant but more than a bondservant, as a beloved brother—especially to me, but how much more to you, both in the flesh and in the Lord - Philemon 15, 16).
