Einstein, "What part of E=MC2 don't you understand?"
brentan comments on Sep 19, 2019:
Energy = 2 Big Macs.
I have mixed feelings about bluegrass, but this music video is sublime [youtu.be]
brentan comments on Sep 19, 2019:
I enjoyed that! There's a solid Scots/Irish thing going on, but also, I think a certain je ne sais quoi from France.

I thought it meant the proposition was either taken to be correct, bringing up another issue, or needed to be verified against the coming question.

brentan comments on Sep 19, 2019:
We have a great system in Ireland. The police don't protect us and we're not allowed to own guns unless we're farmers. But they assure us that justice will get done so there's no need to worry.

Do we need religion to provide a sense of justice?
brentan comments on Sep 17, 2019:
Probably not anymore but I think we need to remember the religious notions that brought us to this point. I'm saying that because I feel respect for justice is falling in direct proportion to the fall in respect for religion.
Drop the Old testament?
brentan comments on Sep 17, 2019:
Jesus makes no sense without reference to Adam, unless he's seen in a Gnostic light.

brentan comments on Sep 17, 2019:
Their ignorance of their own religion is unforgivable. Jesus would have been against all types of fornication. If they think they can take the laws of Christianity into the secular world, they should also be hauling adulterers, unmarried fornicators, even masturbators into the churches to be bullied into changing their lifestyles. It's terrifyingly close to what would happen under Sharia law.

I don't understand it. Maybe that's how it should be. I think the best person to explain that mentality would be someone who had it and later changed their mind.

brentan comments on Sep 17, 2019:
Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before obscure men." Proverbs 22:29 We used to trust that our leaders had that extra something. .It's difficult to believe that anymore. Will the cream rise to the top, as Proverbs says, or is the time of the bullshitter?

Does history run in endless cycles or never-ending loops?
brentan comments on Sep 17, 2019:
I think it's more the latter these days. There was a man called Giambattista Vico who said there are 4 phases - times of gods, heroes and men - continually running through history. The fourth phase was a return to the first. Perhaps we're in the fourth phase now.
Where is the flaw in the following proof for God's existence?
brentan comments on Sep 17, 2019:
I think Rupert Sheldrake is right to call laws 'habits'. Kant would have said that we can understand laws (habits) as concepts but I don't think he could see concepts coming from higher than the metaphysical plane of 'thinking about thinking'.

What’s a Jew to do during the high holy days when they question the existence of a higher power?
brentan comments on Sep 16, 2019:
Just remember that even if they suspect that the Jehovah god is nonsense, they very often still support the 'right' of Jews to occupy Palestine.

Politics have no relation to morals. - Niccolo Machiavelli
brentan comments on Sep 15, 2019:
Political morality, I think, is a perverse thing. Macchiavelli understood political necessity; how it was unavoidable for rulers to hurt some people at some times to maintain social stability. This is a kind of collateral damage. Machiavelli believed that because of this necessity, it was not just more effective, but also kinder, to get this harm done quickly. The other morality is individual. It doesn't allow for collateral damage. I don't know how individual morality might work on a societal basis.
