It's good to know they're learning about sexual freedom while learning how to deal with strikers.
The World/Earth seen from any direction from outer space is a disk.
brentan comments on Aug 24, 2019:
I'm wondering if there is a connection between Kant's Critique of Pure Reason and the belief in a flat earth. What I mean is the idea that our brain gives us a representation of our universe that many people feel is fortunately an exact replica of what is out there. Some think our brains allow for a practical interaction with our surroundings that probably does not reflect reality. So our perception of reality might see things in one way and pictures from outer space see it another way.

I'm really disappointed in a lot of people on this site.

brentan comments on Aug 20, 2019:
I'm coming across the idea a lot recently that consciousness creates reality. I first read it in William Blake's poetry. Then Iain McGilchrist chose the topic for a book he is now writing. Kant, if I understand properly, also talked about reality being a manifestation of how we think.
Some in the Jewish religious community is now pushing their agenda on our right-to-die programs.

I've often wished believers would understand what's going to happen in Heaven.
brentan comments on Aug 19, 2019:
It comes across like sucking God's dick for all eternity and loving it. No offense to anyone who enjoys sucking dick but I can't help thinking the novelty might wear off after a bit. Maybe I just don't understand heaven.

I say why not tell them you're leaving and the reasons why. I'm pretty sure they have no bureaucratic mechanism, for want of a better term, for removing anyone's name from the register but at least you've expressed your feelings about them.
You're right!
brentan comments on Aug 19, 2019:
I have a kind of 'whatever', 'agree to disagree' mentality but I can understand how you can feel cynical enough to deal with some people this way.

brentan comments on Aug 17, 2019:
Richard is wrong, I think. Religion's power is diminished but it isn't going away. I think accommodation is needed for two things: the ecology because the religious think the solution to ecology lies in God's kingdom, and the Western world isn't taking up humanism as the alternative to faith values.
Absolutely not.

Digital phenotyping: A revolution or a privacy breach? - MedCity News
brentan comments on Aug 16, 2019:
That seems a very liberal way to use the word phenotype - adapting it to mean a type of behaviour instead of a type of organism. Anyway, it might well be completely correct. On a more layman level, I was surprised that understanding other people did not bring about the wholly positive results that were expected. I really hoped education would teach us to be kinder to one another but it seemed to work the other way. So I'm not too optimistic about this level of analysis bringing only good results.

Quitting religion freed me to be kind to myself. I was soon able to be kind to others.
brentan comments on Aug 15, 2019:
I think it came about through using the focus on God as a licence to treat others badly. This is, though, in defiance of a creed that said you couldn't love God unless you loved your neighbour: Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. - 1 John 4:20.
There were giants then.

I'd be willing to bet that the monkeys could probably make better gods.
brentan comments on Aug 13, 2019:
We seem to have always made them like us. I mean that they changed as we changed. But it stopped at Jesus with no new god for 2000 years. Perhaps, as Jordan Peterson says, Jesus is the consummate archetype of a god. I mean that (and think Peterson does too) in the sense of bringing god-types to a pinnacle of perfection. If so, that means we couldn't improve on him so the only way forward was discard him. I realise there was a lot more going on historically, Deism for example, but I find it very curious that there was no attempt to update Jesus with a newer version.
This needs no explanation.
