LOL. Was that a Hispanic mistake or a German one? If the mower really was self-actualised, I'm very jealous.
Over 20% of Sanders supporters say they’ll vote for Trump if Buttigieg or Warren win
brentan comments on Apr 22, 2019:
I guess they think there is something inauthentic about Buttigieg and Warren. I understand the issue with Buttigieg. I'm not sure what the problem is with Warren.

Should anti-vaxxers be prosecuted?
brentan comments on Apr 21, 2019:
This question reminds me of my dilemma as a Jehovah's Witness with a child needing surgery. I didn't make any demands against blood transfusion. I simply never stated what religion my child was. For me, the issue was that it my faith and not my son's. The courts often insist that transfusions are given against the wishes of parents. I think the same should be done in cases where the parents believe vaccinations pose risks to their children. Not convinced that vaccinations do no harm, I have some sympathy for the parents but it is vastly outweighed by my concern for the general health of society.

IS THIS THE MEANING OF FATE
brentan comments on Apr 21, 2019:
Fate seems to imply that some agent other than you is at the wheel. It often suggests that it is taking you where you should go instead of where you want to go. I think that's a fantasy for well-off, well-educated people.

brentan comments on Apr 21, 2019:
I'm a big fan of Maynard Keynes. They say his policy is no use anymore because the way markets work is different today. I thought it was a very well-proportioned mix of market and government. The image I have from reading about his ideas is that of the economy as a boiler system needing impetus at times and reducing pressure at others. There was a terrific discussion between Jordan Peterson and Slavoj Zizek on this and related issues that took place last Friday and has been uploaded to YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78BFFq_8XvM&t=766s

brentan comments on Apr 20, 2019:
You must admit that inanimate objects don't have the concept of self-sacrifice. The idea about Jesus was that somebody sentient cared enough to give his life for the sake of humankind. I don't believe it's true and I doubt the logic of the sacrifice but Krauss is being very disingenuous claiming stars are self-sacrificing.

brentan comments on Apr 20, 2019:
I think life is going to get more interesting every year and I would love to live to see it all unfold. I'm not sure how I would love in a physical way if I was a thousand years old and changed body parts along the way. I'm going to guess it would make me think in more more of a bisexual way but the issues surrounding anal sex would still remain unless the anus became robotic rather than organic.

brentan comments on Apr 19, 2019:
My experience as a JW was like this: first the interested person was love-bombed with expressions of love and idealism. When you were officially in, then the apologetics began for why it wasn't as loving and idealistic as it was made out to be. The people in the group were 'brothers and sisters' and the outsiders were 'worldly people'.

Science is the journey toward truth, religion is pretending you have already arrived there.
brentan comments on Apr 19, 2019:
I think religion played a big part in our journey towards truth. I look on it as bronze-age psychology and I respect the minds that came up with religious notions to explain life so very long ago. I don't think much of the laziness of modern minds that don't move with all the knowledge we have available today.

No. I suffered badly (and so did my family) from going off my ordinary meds so I'm afraid to try that anymore. You seem to have been fortunate. I'm also surprised that you could get St. John's Wort. I can't in Ireland. I can't help but think reacting emotionally to emotionally-charged situations is an appropriate response. Maybe the drugs were repressing these natural responses.

brentan comments on Apr 18, 2019:
I was just thinking earlier today how insightful the people were in the past who perceived that spirit was so much more effective than law. We mostly only know this idea from religion so I think the baby got thrown out with the bathwater. Our society has never been so busy making laws to equalise rights and remove wrongs. I think it's an effort at Utopia through law and I fear it cannot work. But spirit, the inner motivation to live decently and treat others correctly, supercedes the imposition of law. Here's the apostle Paul in Galatians 5: But if ye are led by the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousies, wraths, factions, divisions, heresies, envyings, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I forewarn you, even as I did forewarn you, that they which practise such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

It wasn't just religious.

I never know whether to blame them or blame my own stupidity so I'm not pissed off at them or the world. I must admit it is sad though. Such a waste of valuable time.
