Why are you a humanist?
brentan comments on Oct 13, 2019:
I think the word covers caring about people without the belief that they are made in the image of God.
H.
brentan comments on Oct 13, 2019:
Yes indeed! For the sons of this age are more shrewd in relation to their own kind than the sons of light - Luke 16:8. or The tigers of wrath are wiser than the horses of instruction - William Blake The Marriage of Heaven and Hell.

Reality check.
brentan comments on Oct 12, 2019:
I'm cheered up already!
I’m very anxious.
brentan comments on Oct 12, 2019:
I'm convinced that truth has great value. I couldn't prove it; it's more like an act of faith that truth is reality and humans would prosper in a real world. Anyway, the very best of luck on the day. Maybe you'll share the text with us? I'd love to read it because I'm bi too.

I do really miss her - [youtube.com] - Mercedes Sosa
brentan comments on Oct 10, 2019:
I do love Spanish/Hispanic culture so much! I'm a very poor student of the language but I get little bits like 'if the singer shuts up who will talk about life'. I love the passion brought to song. Recently I've come across YT videos by Silvia Perez Cruz, a young singer who does what I call Flamenco style singing.
Wishful thinking?

brentan comments on Oct 8, 2019:
The ancient Hebrews believed things operating to their natural purpose were holy and vice-versa. Boiling a kid goat in its mother's milk was forbidden because the purpose of milk was to nourish, not kill. Sea creatures were deemed inedible if they didn't swim like fish. It seems a strange consciousness to equate purpose with morality but maybe the real problem was in pushing it to the extreme.

Jordan Peterson vs Alan Watts, with Tim Lott (Patreon Exclusive) - YouTube
brentan comments on Oct 8, 2019:
I enjoyed that analysis. I thought maybe Watts was focused on peace of mind and Peterson on responsibility. At the same time, I admit that while I've read or watched practically everything about Peterson, I missed Watts completely.

Jesus' yolk lightens Sisyphus' burden. “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble of heart; and you will find rest. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” —Matthew 11:25-30

brentan comments on Oct 6, 2019:
The Bible writers seemed to have a different idea of justice and mercy than we do. We tend to think mercy will soften the hand of justice but it seems justice had to be fully carried out in the Old Testament because of the blessing and curse options given to the people in Deuteronomy Chapter 28. So mercy worked differently, in that Jehovah would forgive and help his people *after* he had punished them severely.
Politics have no relation to morals. - Niccolo Machiavelli
brentan comments on Oct 6, 2019:
It's a damn good read. I was intrigued by his idea that doing small amounts of evil quickly and efficiently was the most effective way to avoid doing great evils.
Paul Ehrlich

brentan comments on Oct 6, 2019:
This is what happens when we don't follow God's word: Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience - Colossians 3:12. All we need is patience and that money will trickle down like honey.

brentan comments on Oct 4, 2019:
I think it's a case of how you show your contempt for law, decency and the American people. Hillary is judged less awful by virtue of hiding her behaviour as best she could. Trump does it and gets up in your face for criticising him.
Cute. But I'm getting nervous about this impeachment nonsense.
brentan comments on Oct 4, 2019:
He says it's a case of investigating corruption. They say he is using a foreign country to add something of value to his election campaign. He may have trouble saying what prompted him to try getting this investigation going.

He's a bright guy. I would love to see how he expands on ideology as a new religion and the function of forgiveness outside of this new religion (it seems to be a given that we won't see forgiveness inside religion). I think he means a kind of general amnesty for wrongs committed throughout history. I remember some talk years ago about doing something similar with the world economy by forgiving debts and starting again.

Witticism a witty remark. "Maurice roared with laughter at his own witticisms"
brentan comments on Sep 28, 2019:
A pretty conceit, and worth the finding! I have such luck to spin out these fine things still, and, like a silk-worm, out of my self. Here’s master Bartholomew Cokes, of Harrow o’ the Hill, in the county of Middlesex, esquire, takes forth his license to marry mistress Grace Wellborn, of the said place and county: and when does he take it forth? to-day! the four and twentieth of August! Bartholomew-day! Bartholomew upon Bartholomew! there’s the device! who would have marked such a leap-frog chance now! A very . . . less than ames-ace, on two dice! Well, go thy ways, John Littlewit, proctor John Littlewit: one of the pretty wits of Paul’s, the Littlewit of London, so thou art called, and something beside. When a quirk or a quiblin does ’scape thee, and thou dost not watch and apprehend it, and bring it afore the constable of conceit, (there now, I speak quib too,) let them carry thee out o’ the archdeacon’s court into his kitchen, and make a Jack of thee, instead of a John. There I am again la!— - John Littlewit, from Ben Jonson's Bartholomew Fair.
