brentan comments on Jun 16, 2019:
Here's a bit more: Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing. Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed (Romans 2-7).  This is meant to be inspired? I think it was an effort to make Christianity more acceptable to Rome.

The mindfulness conspiracy | Life and style | The Guardian
brentan comments on Jun 14, 2019:
That reminds me of the poem where it says 'God grant me the courage to change the things I can change and accept the things I can't'. I guess there's a fear mindfulness is about accepting everything no matter whether we can change it or not.

Bouncers are not the most imaginative people. They can't follow us into the worlds we create to experience our true nature. Especially if we display our privates in public. They truly are the guardians of the matrix.
Experience is that marvelous thing that enables us to recognize a mistake once we make it again.

I think rich people see God as the spiritual dimension of Maslow's self-actualisation. I'm told it came in with Protestantism and is now most obvious in the prosperity gospel. They must mean he brought it into relatively recent Western thinking because there must have been people like that since forever.

brentan comments on Jun 14, 2019:
The cake makers have a conscience issue with dealing with homosexuality as if it were OK in their eyes. I think some gay people who have the chance to order from a baker who has no problem with it would rather try to force a Christian baker to go against their beliefs. This attitude is counter-productive for gay liberation because people can see the victims have now become the bullies.

brentan comments on Jun 12, 2019:
I wouldn't tell people there is no god. I just think there is no evidence. We could be wrong. A lot of people believe the universe itself is evidence of a god on the basis of the apostle Paul's verse about 'every house is built by someone', so they say this universe must have had a creator. I have a feeling that if and when we get to know the reality of our universe, we will look on past beliefs, both agnostic and religious, as very childish.

Islamophobia Refuted:: [youtube.com]
brentan comments on Jun 11, 2019:
I despair for the language. It's being turned inside out. Phobia of Islam means fear of Islam. The fear is that they will become a victim of Islam. Now the meaning of the word is changed to hate of Islam and the Muslims are the supposed victims. I think the Greek word for hate is something like 'apexthia' and it doesn't seem too much to ask that hatred of Islam be called Islamapexthia. I think the Muslims got the idea of twisting the concept of fear into hatred from the Jews but I'm not sure.

brentan comments on Jun 11, 2019:
This is interesting. I would like to know where this idea came from. I would go further by saying that the collective mind is not even located in human brains but out there in the 'ether'. Rupert Sheldrake teaches that the individual's mind resides in morphic fields located on the super-natural plane. That would make collective consciousness the amalgamation of those fields. This is not to take away the processing power of the mind which he says draws our thoughts into the brain to real-ise them, something like a computer operating system drawing data into RAM to be worked on and then returned in its modified form to the morphic field. This harmonises in one way (processing) with Iain McGilchrist's teaching of how the left brain analyses data from the right brain, modifies the content and (ideally) returns the new data to the right brain.
Nothing...

brentan comments on Jun 10, 2019:
I'm guessing that the morality condemning abortion came in early times from the importance of the survival of the group. So we'd call it a social responsibility these days if the survival of society was at stake. It isn't, of course, except in economic terms where not enough taxpayers are being created to pay for the needs of the elderly, social welfare and other public expenses. The problem in Europe is being solved by bringing in people delighted to work in more prosperous countries and still have the custom of raising large families. Everyone's a winner except perhaps those who never got to experience life.
