"Power", the Italians say, "wears out those who do not have it."

I guess. Is it fair to say it has detrimental effects on those who have it too?

In religion, mystery eventually wins out over logic and always has.
brentan comments on Jul 27, 2019:
This is what I believed as a Jehovah's Witness. Jesus was a lesser divinity even though he was 'begotten, not made' like all other creation. I suppose the Church felt Jesus had to be fully human so that he could compensate for the sin of Adam- otherwise, it wouldn't be a fair propitiation. I can't remember what the problem was with being a lesser divinity. Maybe it didn't sit right with the Trinity idea.
Is it just me or do Christian movies always have terrible acting?

The Death of Free Speech in Europe
brentan comments on Jul 27, 2019:
You need to look at the 7th century through 21st century glasses to think Muhammad was a pedophile. Nonetheless, our right to free speech isn't based on being correct. I feel sure all this is to encourage the growth of cheap labour in Europe.

Sunday Morning Wood...
brentan comments on Jul 25, 2019:
Saint Kevin knew what to do when he met a wanton woman: 'Another story about his choice of celibacy relates to his time of training at Kilnamanagh. A young woman saw him with his companions in the fields and fell passionately in love with him and pursued him in many ways but he resisted her advances. One day she came on him alone and embraced him and asked him tenderly to lie with her. Kevin rushed away and finding a bed of nettles, stripped off his clothes and rolled himself in them naked. When she further pursued him, he quickly dressed, took up a bunch of nettles and beat her off. She, realising the hopelessness of her quest, quickly repented and went off herself to become a nun. Probably the story shows that at the heart of Kevin’s quest for holiness there was a real struggle'. https://www.catholicireland.net/saintoftheday/st-kevin-of-glendalough-498-618/

Religions: Mutualists, commensals or parasites?
brentan comments on Jul 24, 2019:
I would choose mutualism too. Harari claims that humanity has been moving inexorably towards unity since time immemorable. If so, religion has played a large part as a unifying force, not just in faith but also advancing our shared culture. In fairness, that doesn't mean it had to come about the way it did. I wonder how our Western world would have turned out if the main forces in our history were Celtic tribes.

brentan comments on Jul 23, 2019:
In Nazi Germany, the people placed in concentration camps were those who could not or chose not to get out of their own countries. They were placed there to be killed. In America, it is people who could not or chose not to stay in their own countries. There is no intention of killing them. I think the awfulness of the camps is an attempt at deterring more immigrants from choosing to enter the country illegally. From what I've read, Obama and Eisenhower dealt with illegal immigrants in a much more efficient manner that attracted little media attention. Trump's mistake seems to be not dealing with the problem in a forthright manner and trying to make two wrongs make a right.
In England they just elected a new Prime Minister.
brentan comments on Jul 23, 2019:

This is terrific! I haven't read anything in ages about how the religious community is dealing with this. Perhaps most of them are happy enough with Genesis as an allegory. Another interesting thing about this is how the scientific community deals with evidence of so many cultures prior to Sumer. And then there's the issues it raises for those who believe the Anunnaki created human beings and the first human civilisation in Sumer.
