This would be fine if Buttigieg could not be accused of Christian hypocrisy too. His lifestyle is anathema to the Christian lifestyle.

brentan comments on Apr 13, 2019:
I've heard Adam and Eve's awareness of their nakedness was the awareness of vulnerability and how they could be hurt. When humans understood how they could be hurt, they also understood how to hurt others.

brentan comments on Apr 13, 2019:
I guess he means the sexual drive is behind these acts of cruelty. The poet William Blake said the same but I don't understand how that works. Blake says all wars are a result of male sexual frustration.
Not directed at anyone in particular. I just thought it was certainly true some cases.

brentan comments on Apr 12, 2019:
Part of the problem is the word. It used to mean 'uncover, reveal, tell about'. So he did discover the place in that sense.

Hi. Welcome to the forum!
The closed mind of Richard Dawkins
brentan comments on Apr 11, 2019:
I think of him as the 'David v Goliath' figure who took on an organisation single-handedly and won. I read two of his books, The Selfish Gene and the The Extended Phenotype, and they are truly wonderful books. No doubt, he will come to be seen as a stepping stone among others who took us forward in our understanding of ourselves. That move forward usually involves modifying what has been done earlier so I trust Dawkins' work will undergo the same process.
Deep dude

Pete Buttigieg, Gay and Christian, Challenges Religious Right on Their Own Turf
brentan comments on Apr 11, 2019:
I think they'll say his gay Christian lifestyle invalidates him as a genuine Christian.
Here's hoping any trial of Assange is fair and held in open court with full transparency.

"Faith is pretending to know, what you don't know"... Aaron Ra . I heard this quote on YouTube.
brentan comments on Apr 10, 2019:
That's not my understanding of faith. Or the apostle Paul's. This is his definition: Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the proving of things not seen.  (KJV) or And faith is of things hoped for a confidence, of matters not seen a conviction, (RV) -Hebrews 11:1.
This is so me!

brentan comments on Apr 9, 2019:
I think a lot of these quotes are based on the idea that man has an intrinsic value. It's probably rooted in religion, humans thought to be the children of God. As far as I know, philosophy hasn't challenged this view while the dogs on the street know that humanity is overrated.
Feeling this today.

The "both are the same" argument is devoid of any thought.
brentan comments on Apr 7, 2019:
Those socialists should be kept under a tight rein. They start thinking they're the secular version of holiness and everything they say is 'justified by faith'. Those types are far more likely to start killing their own, as we saw in Soviet Russia. Social democracy would be a good bet, a better balance.
