brentan comments on May 29, 2019:
The story was that God had a covenant, an agreement, with Israel to do good and be blessed or do bad and be fucked. Nowadays he is supposed to have a covenant with Christians so they're to blame if shit happens to them, not people who have interest in his covenant.

We really need to wise up to where these guys' heads are at. Not just priests but all these people with access to vulnerable people. It used to be put down to having a vocation.

I watched the new film from Norway and I hoped that some priest might say something explanatory but all I heard was 'if only you had come to me earlier, you could have got money'.

brentan comments on May 26, 2019:
The normal mechanistic view of the brain dictates that once the brain is dead, consciousness is dead. I really like Rupert Sheldrake's idea that the brain is a tool to allow our bodies to realise consciousness. That allows for the possibility that consciousness is not gone after death but rather the need for the brain as a tool is gone. His ideas of how memories, which he believes also exist outside the brain, tie in to this are very interesting. I think his best book dealing with these ideas is The Presence of the Past.

brentan comments on May 25, 2019:
I think I would like that book. Narrative was the way of myth for such a long time. I hope it won't die out completely. Argument is rationality based. Pirisg's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance did a fine job of trying to unite the two in his concept of quality. The divide is often expressed as Classical and Romantic. There is a sense out there, not entirely new, that the classical approach leaves out a lot of human experience, not being made for certain tasks, such as giving meaning to life.

brentan comments on May 24, 2019:
I think in theory it is probably best to treat women as intelligent human beings and discuss things with them as such. Being a bit autistic, it was aways the only way for me to interact instead of an option. But I can't deny that flirting as basic interaction has been the way for decades if not generations or the whole history of men and women. My guess is that it has always been the common denominator and incorporates the integral sexual element of male-female interaction. It is social interaction and it pushes the envelope towards sexual as well. What will unintelligent men and women do to find partners if they can't interact at their own level? I think the problem has more to do with intelligent people getting annoyed with unintelligent people trying to connect with them.

I like the idea of the Hegelian dialectic. You know how it goes- I say something, you say the opposite, the truth is somewhere in the mix. I don't know if Hegel factored stupid opinions into the mix. Maybe he did and he thought there weren't enough stupid opinions to wreck the theory. He might have been more optimistic than me because he probably entertained smarter company than most of us do.

brentan comments on May 24, 2019:
That person must have been really speaking about him or herself. Lots of people would go mad with solitude. They say we're naturally social creatures and I believe we are, even though my life has become reclusive. Does the highest form of freedom mean not being conscious of things other than necessities? Like Socrates, I really believe the meaning of life is very important. I suppose that's not exactly the same as having meaning in your life. I think that is essential and the lack of it is causing enormous problems in society with people trying to replace meaning with drugs and alcohol.

They had their tribes and we had our nations. My own country was always classed quite accurately as a Catholic country up to just a few years ago and is now quite secular. But it is still a nation. So I don't think trying to change the collectives we live in will help much (not that you suggested it would). I think progress in the Christian world has come about through watering down the doctrines and leaving the logoi to stand. I'm hopeful that this watering down is currently in progress in Islam as they interact with the rest of the world.
