I'm enjoying seeing the dates pushed back.
Just saying...😳
brentan comments on Jul 20, 2019:
It's just that they're all so different.
This is going to be a long post, with math . . . I am hoping someone else with a critical eye will ...
brentan comments on Jul 20, 2019:
It doesn't account for a supernatural, all-powerful being so the story has an inner logic that doesn't match with the real world. Fine story in an allegorical way. I think the real flood happened around 12,000 years ago at the end of the last Ice Age.

brentan comments on Jul 19, 2019:
Dreadful. I guess it's a result of poor hygiene. Poverty is probably a big factor. The heat too.
How do you look when you're upset?

Somebody used the wrong pronoun.
What is the reason to live? What are we living for?
brentan comments on Jul 19, 2019:
We decide. I do the Socrates' idea of the examined life. Then there's the Maslow hierarchy. Or having a family. Each to their own.
Depends on the day.

Berkeley bans gender-specific words [syracuse.com]
brentan comments on Jul 19, 2019:
Probably not the daftest idea the lefties came up with. Maybe manholes should be left alone if only men use them. Something like sewer holes would work if it didn't become another word for backsides.
How cute.
brentan comments on Jul 19, 2019:
If there is a flood like the one they say happened about 12,000 BC, the result might be the same, a civilisation will disappear and there will be a new beginning. This re-start world might just be the thing to ensure the survival of the earth. I hope we survive to try again.
Stressed out.
brentan comments on Jul 18, 2019:
Not a lot of people know that.
Are you living up to your expectations?
brentan comments on Jul 18, 2019:
I can do that. Maslow's self-actualisation achieved.

I wonder are men coming around to realising what many women used to realise, and that is there's more to life than work.

The real midlife crisis confronting many Americans
brentan comments on Jul 18, 2019:
The last time I looked, Homer Simpson was dedicated to getting his Dad back to the old folks' home. It reflected the understanding that society was outsourcing the care of its parentage to nursing homes. I wasn't aware that mid-life Americans were now becoming carers for their aged parents. There was always an understanding that old folk wanted to stay part of their families and not isolated with their peers. Looking after your folk was seen as a good thing. Selfishness was seen as the reason for dumping parents in homes. I wonder is the sense of crisis justified.

Best wait to see if a pattern develops. They're easier to analyse.
I just realized Ocasio-Cortez is Puerto Rican. So her ancestors immigrated to the US, from the US.
brentan comments on Jul 18, 2019:
She's a very devious woman. Lovely looking so I forgive her.
So... you mean to tell me Jesus was born from a woman who was a virgin? Even though Jesus has ...
brentan comments on Jul 18, 2019:
I think the problem is that they claim she was always a virgin while scripture mentions Jesus' brothers. And his mother and his brothers came, and standing outside they sent to him and called him.  And a crowd was sitting around him, and they said to him, “Your mother and your brothers are outside, seeking you.” - Mark 3:31,32. To be fair, it is possible that brother had a wider meaning than it has now. If Jesus' brothers were Joseph's sons from an earlier marriage...

brentan comments on Jul 17, 2019:
Don't mind appearances. Play the slow game of rebuilding, finding the things you love and maybe eventually a new person to love. That's my opinion and I'm at the 'find things you love' stage at the moment.

brentan comments on Jul 17, 2019:
That quid pro quo business is definitely the way of the Old Testament. It was meant to change in the New Testament but the old thinking held sway. It's curious that it's also the way the ancient Egyptians thought, weighing up your deeds after death to see if you had a net gain.

brentan comments on Jul 17, 2019:
He was out there taking on religion on his own when it wasn't fashionable to do it. He opened the gates to many more vocal critics by doggedly standing his ground and articulating good sense. Then people wonder if he is a bit too entrenched... Leaving aside religion, I read two of his science books and they are marvellous. So I think very highly of the man.

He was doing his best in the only way he knew. That's not good enough. We really must learn new ways of dealing with women. I don't know of anyone offering education in this field, though.
All good questions.

LOL - that's for people with no real problems!
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.
How to save money.
